Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV

Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV

for those who loves the sporty lines of coupes, but rather not sit any lower than most of the road-going automobiles, there is the BMW X6 or similar to content with. strictly speaking, there aren’t a lot of such outrageous marriage between a coupe and a SUV to go for – if that’s your cuppa, but if the Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV does become a reality, then fans of this weirder than friction wheels could be yet another option. powering this luxury oddity of the automotive world is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6, delivering 333 hp and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque through a nine-speed automatic gearbox to all four of its (imposing) 22-inch wheels running on 305/45 R22 tires. despite its coupe form, its association with a powerful SUV is clear: muscular appearance attributed by bulging wheel arches, crease hood, a wide stance, high belt line and the mandatory generous ground clearance – all points to what it really is.

Trion Nemesis Supercar

Trion Nemesis Supercar

if the California-based new kid in the supercar arena, Trion SuperCars, lives up to the promise of 2,000 hp (yes. you heard it right. 2,000 horses) from its first supercar, the Trion Nemesis, it would be the world’s most powerful production supercar. getting excited already? well, not too soon, cowboy cos’ this beast in supercar’s skin will only be realized next year and it will have a matching whopping sticker of around $1 million each. word has it that it will be powered by a twin-turbo V8 unit that would produced the said (insane) horsepower, paired to an eight-speed sequential gearbox and it has a projected naught to sixty miles per hour sprint of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of over 270 mph (435 km/h) which should be ample enough to have most people balls up the throat.

David Brown Automotive Speedback GT

David Brown Automotive Speedback GT

if you missed the good’ol days of British motoring, then we suspect the David Brown Automotive Speedback GT might be a good news for you. the Speedback GT is the first automobile from new British coachbuilder David Brown Automotive that’s based on the Jaguar XKR. it takes on a very retro design approach with a dash of Aston Martin influence. you probably can say it is somewhat a mash up of the Jag and an Aston. aesthetically, the car is unmistakably retro and if the snout does not scream classic, then perhaps the classic 19″ wired wheels will. we are not sure if it strikes you so, but we are kind of associating this car with frictional MI6 spy James Bond already.

Honda NSX Prototype Hybrid All-Wheel Drive Supercar

Honda NSX Prototype Hybrid All-Wheel Drive Supercar

the NSX is like a promised made to a child that never kept. through the years, we have been teased and witnessed the prototype hit the tracks, but never a piece of news that indicates it is anything but mythical – until now. however, if 2015 still sounds too far into the future for you, then the new NSX will still be a myth to you anyhow. described as a ground-breaking supercar, the NSX is propelled forth by an innovative three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system and is set to enter production in 2015 (finally!). and to prove that they are committed, Honda will be bringing the Honda NSX Prototype Hybrid All-Wheel Drive Supercar to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, happening between June 27 and 29.

2015 Porsche Cayman GTS

2015 Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS

Porsche fans who have a little bit more dough to drop can look forward to the GTS-ed version of the Cayman and Boxster, herein designated as 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS. these GTS models are destined to be the most powerful versions of the Stuttgart automaker’s entry level wheels. though ‘most powerful’, they are not by a huge number but still, a bump is a bump. expect to find 15 more horses and 7.3 lb-ft (10 Nm) more torque from the 3.4-liter flat six unit, with the Boxster GTS boasting 326 hp and the Cayman GTS, 335 hp. putting pedal to metal, the Cayman now makes zero to sixty in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 177 mph, while the roadster is a tad ‘slower’ at 4.7 seconds and tops out at 174 mp. though it is worthy to note that those figures are only true if you opt for the optional PDK double-clutch gearbox.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe

2015 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe

so you think the S-Class Coupe‘s 455 horses not brutal enough? well, that’s what the pointed star marque thought too and that’s why there is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe to quench your thirst for power and torque, and most importantly, the need for speed – all in the same renowned trim you come to expect from a Mercedes-Benz AMG. neatly tucked under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine tuned to unleash 585 hp (430 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of metal-twisting torque, mated to an obligatory AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission that capable of launching this near two-ton (4,400 lbs) beast from naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in mere 4.3s, or 3.9s if you were to opt for the left-hand drive-only 4MATIC model, and sending it on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). doing all so while consuming just 10.3 liter per 100 km of gas (or about 22.8 MPG).

2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport

2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport

we think Lexus is officially in the swirl of model confusion. we are not Lexus specialists and hence, we are easily confused by the models the luxury car maker has to offer, specifically in the RC range. at the recent Geneva Motor Show, it has introduced yet another RC model, known as the 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport. note the ’350′ and ‘Sport’, which are huge hints that this new ride sits between the RC 350 Sport Coupe and the range topping RC F. confused? i guess as much. basically, in layman terms, it is ‘better’ then the former and ‘not so better’ than the latter. power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 petrol unit (2GR-FSE, for petrol heads), pumping out 306 hp and 277 lb-ft (375 Nm) of torque, with an eight-speed automatic gearbox putting those figures to the rear wheels.
