The prototype has a front fascia that implies a forceful impression along with the aerodynamic side skirts and modified rear bumper. As with the other Audi models, this car is also armored with a sports suspension, high-performance brakes (carbon ceramic type for this prototype) and a four-tailpipe discharge system.

The interiors seem to come with almost no changes. Notably, it has a steering wheel and the instrument cluster that carries a S7 badging. A 4.0-liter V8 engine with approximately 440 PS (324 kW / 434 hp) will power the car.

We look forward to seeing the beauty go into production soon.

The BMW 1-Series is set for release in 2012 and will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The luxury car giant has come up with a design that looks more elegant than the previous model. The BMW 1-Series has borrowed its inspiration for its front fascia from its own 5-Series GT and 7-Series. The car looks impressive in the pictures we have in front of us.

Since the vehicle has a longer 2.69 meter (105.9 inch) wheelbase, the cabin becomes more spacious. The boot capacity is enhanced by an additional 200 liters (7 cubic feet). The interior comes with an improved design and has luxurious upholstery thrown in. These apart, the maker has added a 6.5-inch (or optional 8.8-inch) iDrive display. Moreover, there is also choice of collision warning system, speed limit detection, and Internet connectivity.

A variety of options make the engine system charming. While the turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol provides output of 136 PS (100 kW / 134 hp), 170 PS (100 kW / 168 hp) and 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp), on the diesel side, there’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that shoots up power of 116 PS (85 kW / 114 hp), 143 PS (105 kW / 141 hp) and 184 PS (135 kW / 181 hp).

Irrespective of the engines, it will be connected to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. The car will have fuel injection range of 4.3 to 5.8 liters per 100 kilometers (40.6 to 54.7 mpg US / 48.7 to 65.7 mpg).

Official Pictures: 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 18
Posted by overdrivetv in Automotive News, Beetle, images, new, pictures, Volkswagen, VW on 04 18th, 2011

If you were following the massive international launch of the 2012 Beetle you might have noticed that a few news sites published the images before the press embargo of 1pm GMT. Those sites have felt the full wrath of some frightening VW lawyers and retracted their stories.

These then are the first official pictures of the 21st Century Beetle. Some UK sites are claiming an early 2012 release date, so we presume we’re looking at a July-September launch in SA. We’ll keep you posted.

It seems the car is based on the chassis from the Golf 6, but hey, which cars in the VW stable aren’t. Expect a full line up of VW engines, from the little 1.4 litre twincharged unit, all the way to a 2.0 turbo.

The interior looks like every other VW I’ve ever driven, which is no surprise, but at least you’ll be able to spec all the goodies like SatNav and the HDD music system with touch screen.

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Coupe, Death Valley, Hyundai, images, pictures, spy, Veloster on 09 6th, 2010

The much awaited Hyundai Veloster has been spied at a hot weather testing in Death Valley. Spy pictures of the vehicle showed has less camouflage than had been  anticipated.

From what we infer from the pictures, the roof slopes down to curve smoothly as it wraps itself around the cabin that has a round two piece back window. The interior can  also be clearly seen in the pictures and it seems to have an adequate amount of space to fit four adult passengers comfortably.

Reports say that the Veloster coupe’s base-model will come with a 1.6-liter, direct-injection engine with 122 PS (90 kW/121 hp) and 155 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque.

A 1.6-liter turbocharged unit will reportedly come onto markets close on its heels, which will produce a healthier 177 PS (131 kW/175 hp).
