Posaidon-tuned Mercedes-AMG E63 S is crazy powerful with 1,090 hp

This Mercedes-AMG E63 S may look like the previous generation model in the range topping S-trim, but when you drive it, you’ll know that it is far more superior. This is because the difference comes mainly from under the hood. This originally came with a biturbo 5.5-liter V8 engine that generates 585 horsepower, which is already quite powerful.

However, German aftermarket specialists Posaidon even got to push the already powerful car, to its maximum. It is now equipped with a 6.5-liter V8 engine that carries out 1,090 horsepower and 550 Newton-metres (406 pound-feet) more torque than the original engine, paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. In fact, the tuners had to tweak the transmission and electronically limit the engine torque to ensure reliability. Initially, the untouched Mercedes-AMG E63 S with the V8 engine generated 1,350 Newton-metres (996 pound-feet) of torque. In this case, the speed restriction has become quite essential.

Naturally, hardware changes like upgrading the engine to 6.5 liters and boosting the turbochargers by increasing the boost pressure, with a new higher-capacity intercooler will make a car perform better. The new V8 also gets a stainless steel sports exhaust system, giving it a better soundtrack. An ECU remap was also required for the upgraded internals.

BMW 7 Series celebrates 40 years with limited edition 40 Jahre

BMW will be releasing a limited edition 7 Series in the same way that the 3 Series and 5 Series models got their own anniversary editions from the previous years. The BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre, which is limited to only 200 examples, will be manufactured at BMW’s Dingolfing plant in Germany. Interestingly, this is also where the 7 Series was born and has been produced since 1977.

In line with the celebration of its 40th year, BMW is offering two special paint variants exclusively available from its very own Individual catalogue. Customers can choose between the Petrol Mica metallic (7 Series’ original body color) and the Frozen Silver metallic body paint. Its array of enhancements will include the brand’s high gloss Shadow Line trim, a new set of BMW Individual light V-spoke alloy wheels, as well as BMW’s M Aerodynamics Package. All limited-run 7 Series 40 Jahre also come with specially marked B-pillar coverings and door pillars to underline the segment’s 40 years of existence.

BMW’s Individual package is prominent as well inside the cabin such as the brand’s soft premium leather upholstery. The choices available are either in Smoke White/Black or Smoke White/Cohiba two color combinations. Any color scheme selected comes with a pair of limited edition comfort cushions in Smoke White which includes floor mats and Alcantara headliner of the same color. Depending on the choice of upholstery combination, the floor mat’s edging can be had either in brown or black while the accents can be availed either in Piano black lacquer or Smoke brown woodgrain.

BMW M3 (F80) CS with 460 hp will arrive in 2018

If you are a huge fan of the hardcore GTS version, you probably know that the closest you could get to that model is the upgraded model of the M4 -- the BMW M4 CS that has a 460 horsepower (343-kilowatt) engine capable of going from 0-62 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds. But guess what? It seems like the four-door M3 will be getting the same treatment sometime soon.

Well, the German company has been making use of their “CS” trademark filings. BMW has filed “CS” names with trademarks that range from “M1 CS” to “M8 CS” - that is a lot if you think about it. This is probably their strategy to keep up with the growing lineup of Mercedes-AMG vehicles.

In fact, it was stated by Bimmer Today, a German publication, that the new M3 (F80) CS will be the most powerful M3 of all time, and it is scheduled to come out next year. It will be getting 460 horsepower (343 kilowatts) from the same 3.0-liter biturbo six-cylinder engine, as that of the M4 CS. According to some rumours, the engine will be paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Probe begins over $1 million worth of marijuana found in 15 new Ford Fusions

What would you do if the car you had just purchased from the dealership came with a huge package of marijuana? Well, if you recently got yourself a Ford Fusion, you might want to check out the truck before you get yourself in trouble. This is because several Fusions have been filled with packages of marijuana. Is this the new definition of a “green” car?

According to CNN, all fifteen cars that were found with packages of weed came from the Ohio dealership, and these cars came from one location - Ford’s manufacturing plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The plant is about three hours away from Ohio and the cars have all been shipped out to the United States via train to a CSX rail yard in Ohio. These cars were then put into trucks before heading to dealerships.

The most unusual thing here is that the marijuana was not found loosely lying on the car’s trunk. Instead, they were neatly packed in half-moon shaped packages, which had been perfectly fitted in the Fusion’s spare tire wells. Now, if you are familiar with this car’s spare tire well, you would know that it contains a lot of space. Believe it or not, each marijuana package weighed 32 pounds. As there were fifteen cars found with the package, that is a lot of weed. In fact, all of it has an estimate price of about a million dollars. So whoever missed the pickup is not only in big trouble, he also owes the unknown recipient a lot of money.

Honda had just shared detailed specs of the tenth generation Accord. The updated version not only looks better physically - it has been made larger, but lighter. The 2018 model year also comes with new engine options and additional standard safety features. Honda also confirmed that there will no longer be a coupe variant of it.

The new 2018 Honda Accord can actually fit in the Acura’s lineup, especially the range-topping Touring model that comes with LED headlights. As mentioned earlier, the 2018 model is bigger thanks to its longer wheelbase of 2.16 inch (55 millimeters). The sedan also has a sportier look because it is 0.39 inch (10 mm) wider, and 0.59 inch (15 mm) lower. To keep its weight down despite the increase in size, Honda made use of aluminum and ultra-high-strength steel in the chassis, losing a total of 50 to 80 kilos (110 pounds to 176 pounds), depending on the trim.

Having a longer wheelbase always means more space - either for the interior, the trunk, or both. In the case of the 2018 Accord, rear passengers get 2 inches (51 mm) of more legroom for a more comfortable ride, while the driver and front passenger seats have been pushed inward, giving them more hip and shoulder space. Visibility is also improved thanks to the thinner A-pillars. The new Accord also gets a larger trunk capacity, with more than one cubic foot for the combustion models, and up to 3.2 cubic feet for the Hybrid - as the battery pack can’t be found under the hood anymore.

Audi A8 (D5) is the talk of the town now - from its Spiderman: Homecoming cameo, its official debut from a couple of days ago, to all the sick features it has got including the new relaxation seats and the laser lights. Now people are wondering whether the A8 will get an RS8 version. For now, we don’t think it will, but it won’t hurt to imagine one.

The first thing PeisertDesign did was to give the A8 a huge black single frame grille with honeycomb pattern on the front fascia. The bumpers on both ends were given a more aggressive style element. On the rear end is a new diffuser that gets the oval RS tailpipes. Larger, blacked out wheels replace the standard set. What completes the overall exterior are the carbon fiber roof that contrasts the green body paint, not to mention the badges on the front and the rear.

As usual, we won’t know what will be on the inside of the Audi RS8, because PeisertDesign has only rendered the exterior. And for the engine, it will probably be equipped with the a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 developed by Porsche, or it could be a 6.0 liter that can generate 700 bhp.

You might recognize the car in this photo as a Camry but you’ll be wrong in a way. Let us clarify this. The plate does say “Altis” but the badge isn’t one of Toyota’s. Well, it’s basically the 2018 Toyota Camry that has been rebadged as the new Daihatsu Altis.

Daihatsu has been selling Camrys with the brand’s badge on it in Japan since the early 2000s. Today, the company is wholly owned by Toyota. Currently, only one model is carried in the lineup. And that’s the 2.5-liter hybrid with two-wheel drive in G spec, as seen in the photo.

In January 2016, it was confirmed that Daihatsu has become a fully-owned subsidiary of Toyota. Both parties have a share exchange that was completed in August 2016, and this is meant to add more value to both brands. The two companies have an agreement to develop better cars for the small car segment with next-generation technologies. Sounds like a win-win situation for all parties, including the Japanese customers.

For motorists in the United States who think that driving a new Alfa Romeo is worth it, here comes some very good news. Alfa Romeo is slashing $100 off the usual monthly lease for the new Giulia. More specifically, Alfa Romeo is offering US drivers a 24-month lease deal that entails a down payment of just $3,299 and a monthly payment of $299.

This seemingly sweet lease offer comes as the Italian premium carmaker seems to be having some trouble to meet its expectations for the Alfa Romeo Giulia premium mid-size sedan in the US. Although the Italian carmaker has seen sales of the Giulia increase month by month since January 2017, it has yet to breach the 1,000 monthly sales barrier. From a measly sales number of 70 units in January 2017, the Alfa Romeo Giulia crawled its way up to 992 examples in June 2017, for a total of 3,475 units in the first six months of 2017. The increase seems encouraging, but it falls short of the expectations that the Giulia would be a big seller.

For $299 a month, this lease deal is enticing for customers looking for a gorgeous car with Italian design and heritage, state of the art technologies as well as great handling and sprinting capability. This offer refers to a base, rear-wheel drive version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia (with 22L package), with the pricing based on an MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) example of $38,990.

Bentley Mulsanne is Mansory's latest project to date, and it looks much more stylish compared to some of the last ones they have tuned.

The ultra luxurious Mulsanne has been given just the right amount of facelift with additional carbon fiber details from the front bumper lip spoiler, and fog lamps surround. More carbon has been added in the form of side skirts, boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser.

What completes the new look of the limo would be the huge set of 22-inch forged wheels hugged by 285/35Z ultra-high performance tires on the front and rear axles. The hot wheels were of course, recommended by Mansory.

Audi's new flagship model is finally here: the 2018 Audi A8 (D5). In the past couple of months, the company has continuously teased us with photos and short videos of the A8 and what features it will be offering. Other than the teasers, it even made an appearance in the latest Spiderman: Homecoming movie.

Well, today is the day, and we have got all the specs from Audi. At first glance, it doesn't look very different from its predecessor. But don’t fret as its new features inside are certain to blow you away. Overall, the 2018 model year is larger than it was before, and it comes in 12 new colours - and 3 of those are new.

On the exterior, the first thing that one will notice is the single frame grille, and the new lasers within the HD Matrix LED high-beam headlamps. This new system doubles the range of the lights at speeds of over 43 mph.

Cadillac again makes an effort to revive one of its oldest models, the XTS, for the 2018 model year. Last month, a couple of photos have been leaked which suggested that the large luxury sedan is leaning towards a more family friendly car with new design elements. But there is no need to speculate as we now have full details from the company.

The new photos that were released show that most of the noticeable upgrades are seen in the car’s front and rear fascia. In fact, a lot of people say that the XTS’ new look makes it look more like a CT6. The full-sized sedan now comes standard with LED headlights and taillights, with the headlights looking more angular. A new grille is now the focal point of the face. The company completes the exterior of the XTS with a new set of 19- and 20-inch wheels, and Brembo front brakes that come standard. What’s new for the car would be the optional Magnetic Ride Control as well as the Rear Air Leveling - both are firsts for the XTS. These features are meant to improve chassis dynamics and comfort, and also reduce noise.

Inside the cabin, customers have options such as the new Platinum-exclusive Maple Sugar and Jett Black trim to cover the interior with. And another upgrade the Cadillac XTS has been given is the next-generation infotainment system that none of the previous models have got. Every bit of the interior is wrapped in leather, complemented by a microfiber suede headliner, and premium wood trim. Overall, creating a luxurious and upscale atmosphere. That’s not all, the sound system has been upgraded to a new eight-speaker Bose audio system, and there are four USB ports where customers can charge their devices.

Even as the Audi Summit is about to take place in Barcelona next week, the company decided to tease us even more with the upcoming A8 (D5) flagship. But then again, Audi has been very generous with providing hints about what everyone has been eagerly waiting for.

Though they haven’t revealed everything about it yet, it’s quite obvious that the company isn’t trying to hide the A8 from us. Aside from all the official videos the automaker produced, the car is also soon going to be a Hollywood star, alongside Spidey in Marvel’s latest Spider-Man: Homecoming movie.

The company has revealed a backlit photo of the car showing its profile and some exterior details. There are two very visible lines that remind us of the Prologue concept, while the LED lights are looking very sharp. Other than that, it doesn’t really show anything that we don’t know about yet.

Hyundai has officially announced what it will be offering for the 2018 model year. The lineup will include a refreshed Accent and Elantra GT, together with the brand new Kona compact crossover. The other models that were not mentioned will also be getting some upgrades for the next generation, except for one: the full-size Azera sedan. Well, in the United States at least. Nonetheless, the model will still be available in the Korean market, where it will be known as the Grandeur.

The main reason for the discontinuation is because the Azera has not been doing well in the U.S. for the past few years. The Azera first entered the western market in 2011, where it peaked in 2013 making just over 11,000 sales. Since then, it has just declined. Despite going through a makeover in 2015, it still did not raise its sales with just 5,539 units sold, and just under 5,000 units in 2016. That is a clear indication that the Azera is not seen as appealing in the market, especially if you consider that its rivals like the Chevrolet Impala and Toyota Avalon are selling the same number of cars, in just a month - making the Azera way behind in terms of sales.

Other than that, the Korean automaker also has its upscale company Genesis in the market. Despite the fact that the Azera comes off as an upscale model with a touch of luxury and a number of options, it was never considered a proper sport sedan. And when being compared to a Genesis G80 sedan, both cars offer similar features and performance. In terms of price, the Azera Limited costs almost the same as the base Genesis G80. I’m guessing that there may be so much competition in the segment that the 2018 Azera will just drown. But who knows, its Grandeur twin might still make it in the Asian market.

It has not been kept a secret that the Jaguar XE will be arriving soon. Well, the day has come for the 2018 Jaguar XE SV Project 8, with a number of new upgrades and power courtesy of the manufacturer’s Special Vehicle Operations crew. Under the hood comes a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 producing up to 592 horsepower with 516 pound feet or torque. This upgrade makes the Project 8 the most powerful road car ever by Jaguar.

Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director John Edwards, said that “SVO’s raison d’être” is to release halo vehicles that push the limits when it comes to “luxury, performance and all-terrain capability.” He also described Project 8 as a “great example” of a venture that came about as a result of designers, engineers and manufacturing specialists who were given the chance to develop extreme performance sports car “without compromise.”

A lot of carbon fiber pieces have been used to build the Project 8, from the front and rear bumpers to the vented hood. The model looks more masculine thanks to its new bodywork, that also makes enough space for 20-inch forged alloy wheels. An all-wheel drive is standard for the Project 8.

BMW saw a potential oil leak on the new M760Li, prompting them to recall the said vehicle last April. Today, a little over two months after issuing the first recall, BMW is once again recalling the M760Li for the same reason. While 97 examples have been initially affected, the latest recall notice covers a total of 206 vehicles as issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (or NHTSA).

One of the main reasons is the oil leaking from the oil cooler possibly going onto the front brakes, compromising the vehicle’s braking efficiency. The 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive sedan, which packs a total output of 592hp(600PS) and 590lb ft (800Nm) of torque, can go for a zero-to-62 mph sprint in only 3.9 seconds. Even if no injuries or accidents have been reported, recalling the affected vehicles is important to let them check and replace the engine oil cooler line or whatever is necessary to prevent any serious problems.

According to BMW, they will be working on the vehicles beginning August 7 and that the procedure will be free of charge and should not take more than two hours to complete. In spite of this, owners should wait to be contacted first by the dealership before bringing in their cars for a check-up.

The tenth-generation Honda Accord is coming our way. Honda recently announced that the 2018 year model will be revealed sooner than you guys expect, that is on July 14. The reveal will take place in Detroit at 11:00 am eastern time. And don’t stress if you can’t make it to the reveal as they will be streaming it live on YouTube. So as we wait for the day to come, Honda decided to first tease us with a photo posted online. And as you can see, the design elements sort of remind us of the current Civic.

Unlike the Civic, specifically the Type R that received some criticism based on its design, it seems like the Accord would not be getting the same negative reception. Based on what we have seen from a number of spy shots and the new teaser, the Accord is going to be one handsome model. In fact, the company itself said that it is probably the most premium and dramatically styled car.

But the 2018 Accord isn’t just about design, the company promises that it will be a fun car to drive. In terms of the engine, the Japanese marque revealed some details to us. First of all, the V6 has been replaced by a pair of turbocharged four cylinder mills combined with Honda’s next-generation hybrid system. But don’t worry if you were a fan of the smooth V6. Sources that have driven the pre-production model say that the new engine will make you forget about the V6.

Honda Accord has been considered by mid-size sedan buyers as the top choice if one is searching for an excellently built, low maintenance and respectable sporty vehicle for the previous years. Now the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord will follow an identifiable trend of utilizing turbos and transmission to boost both power and performance without fully neglecting fuel economy when it will be rolled out to dealers this fall.

10th-gen Honda Accord will be released in the latter part of this year. Honda revealed that when it will be released, the 2018 sedan will be equipped with an array of new and updated powertrains that includes 2 turbocharged gas engines and specifically the next-gen of the Japanese automaker's 2-motor hybrid system. For the standard sedan, Honda will provide it with a 1.5 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, likely the version that is currently utilized in Civic and R-V models.

The official output of the sedan has not been released yet, but the Japanese automaker hinted that the engine will be offered with both a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. The previous version of Accord's optional V6 engine will be replaced by a greater output, 2.0 L turbo-four that will be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Celebrated golfer Tiger Woods is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. On Memorial Day, various news reports disclosed that Woods was arrested under suspicion for driving under the influence. Specifically, police found him sleeping on the steering wheel and was arrested for the DUI.

While this may once again dent Woods' reputation, it comes as a relief that nothing worse happened. His 2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG is altogether a different story. Though rather sketchy, the photos revealed that there were flat tires with the sidewalls torn. There were even some significant tweaks that can be seen on the wheels, which themselves clearly look dirty.

According to a report by the Police Department of Jupiter, Florida, the driver side also showed some damage. Looking at the photos though, the rather obvious damages look to be the loosened fender liner on the model's front wheel well. In addition, it appears that the front fascia has been dislodged. Given the fact that the driver side's front and rear wheels reveal some damage, one explanation could be that Woods may possibly have clipped something.

After a prototype version of the BMW 1 Series 120i sedan – sans any disguise – was spotted in Munich, Germany early this year, many interested and potential customers had their hopes up that the German premium carmaker would offer the front-wheel-drive 1 Series Sedan in Europe. But to their dismay, BMW doesn’t plan to immediately bring the 1 Series Sedan from China to Europe, according to Autocar, citing a source from the German luxury carmaker.

While the new 1 Series Sedan is part of the BMW’s offering, it is not being offered in Europe since this so-called baby Bimmer is an exclusive product targeting affluent customers in China. BMW officially introduced the 1 Series Sedan at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, hoping to take advantage of a new generation of car buyers that might shy away from larger premium vehicles that are currently the trend in the country.

BMW has already made it clear that the BMW 1 Series Sedan will only be offered in China. Autocar’s BMW source said the carmaker won’t be rushing the introduction of the 1 Series sedan outside of China, even though rival saloon model from Audi (Audi A3 saloon) managed to achieve much success in the global stage. Likewise, BMW’s reluctance to launch the 1 Series Sedan in Europe bears quite a contrast to a recent confirmation from rival Mercedes-Benz that its A-Class line-up will feature a saloon model in 2018.

In a bid to stay fresh and more relevant in today’s segment, Skoda is giving the Superb a mini makeover for the 2018 model year. Similar to the newly refreshed Octavia and Kodiaq, the iconic Superb will be featuring new technologies and premium infotainment system for the Columbus, Bolero, Amundsen and Swing.
