Subaru Version of Toyota FT-86 Spotted 8
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Impreza, Rear-wheel, spy, Subaru, Toyota FT-86 on 09 8th, 2010

Spy photographers have captured a few images of Subaru’s version of Toyota FT-86. The prototype is reportedly undergoing hot-weather testing in an American desert.

And what has been glimpsed right now is a curious mix of camouflage and spare parts patched in with duct tape.

Understandably, this visual makes it quite impossible to zone in on what the production model will finally look like, but based on previous renderings, this model is likely to be a striking offering from Subaru.

As per previous information, the coupe will inhabit a shortened frame of the Legacy platform, and will have the rear suspension of the Impreza.

The FT-86 will feature a 2.0-liter boxer engine – naturally aspirated; and reports say the Subaru model will be using a 2.0-liter turbo with 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS).

This will be paired to a six-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive. The model will be on sale by 2013 and reports say the base price will be at a minimum of $25,000.

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).

New spy pictures of the 2012 Mercedes B-Class have emerged. The prototype has a strong resemblance to the BlueZero concept which debuted at the North American International Auto Show last year.

The 2012 Mercedes B-Class will be coming with a longer wheelbase, a Mercedes-Benz GLK-like grille, a panoramic glass sunroof and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. We also get a peek of the interior from one of the photos. But, unfortunately, we only get to see the rear seatbacks and the front armrest.

The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class will be sportiest yet as a high-performance AMG variant was confirmed by the tuning arm’s outgoing boss Volker Mornhinweg late last month. AMG currently offers V-8 engines, but for the B-Class a new specially tuned four-cylinder engine will be developed.

The current Mercedes-Benz B-Class has enjoyed reasonable success in most of the markets. But the next-generation model due in 2011 is expected to sell in even higher volumes.
