New Bmw M3 Wagon Photo Rendering

80705240051m


The chance the US getting a Wagon based Bmw M3 are about as slim as Rosie Odonnell returning to the view (or us watching the view) but nontheless the car will be a very exciting wagon for Europeans.  Worldcarfans has put together a nice rendering of what they think the M3 wagon will look like and we think that their photo is on point.  An M3 Wagon gives you the excitement and performance of a Bmw M3 with the added funcionality of a Wagon Hatch in the back.

A Green Supercar? The Koenigsegg CCXR

What would the Pope drive if he wanted to purchase a Supercar-?

How about the Koenigsegg CCXR - which is being labeled as the world's first "green supercar". The Koenigsegg CCXR is labeled such because of its very friendly go green powerplant- E85 Ethanol which is basically a nice mix of patrol and pure alcohol. Finally E85 does not mean a sacrifice in performance.

Just how much power does this Swedish made and E85 powered car produce?  Enough to outpower the Bugatti Veyron (which has 986 bhp)- totallying in at 1004 bhp.  Note to sixty comes in at freakish 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph. Note again- This car can not be driven just be any rookie driver unless you want it to end up like the Ferrari Enzo in the Redline Movie released this year- sorry Mr. Pope.

With a price of 600, 000 k to build the Koenigsegg CCXR,  dont be suprised if you ever see one of these epic green supercars on the road- but take in part the statement this car makes in the automotive industry - both performance and a healthy green conscience for fuel economy- a valuable combination to both consumers and the environment.

The Audi A4 You've Been Waiting for?

Check out the current Audi A4 and you may find your self very unsatisfied not that it is a bad car .

It has to do with the fact that newly designed Audi's such as the A5, R8 , and Q7 make the A4 look like the ugly step sister of the bunch.  Indeed Audi is working on a new A4 which will most definitely take on the looks of the sporty A5 and R8 but official details aren't going to be released for quite some time. 

Here is a nice rendering of what the newly reworked Audi A4 could look like:

Look for the new A4 to surface , surprise , and fulfill this September in Frankfurt Germany.

The Porsche 911 turbo is the pinnacle of European sports cars offering enthusiasts one of the best performing and handling sports car but what happens when tuner DMS takes it one step further?  DMS tuning knows that in order to make this 911 Turbo better , than they will have to still give the 911 its classic look but offer an advancement to the engine ECU software giving you one "sleeper" 911 Turbo.
