Don’t Modified A BMW M4 Coupé For Track Until You Have Read This!

If you are planning to turn a lovely BMW M4 into a track-going beast, well, don’t, because BMW wants to save you the hassle with this tuned-for-track 2018 BMW M4 GT4. That’s right. The luscious M4 has a track variant and it wouldn’t be anything less of a ‘yay’ for track enthusiasts and racing car teams. As the name suggests, the GT4 is built upon the M4 Coupé, which means it inherited the engine and transmission, including control electronics, from the M4 Coupé, but being a tuned-for-track ride, it gets some serious upgrades like carbon hood from the BMW M4 GTS, carbon-fiber doors, motorsport-specific splitters and rear wings, a racing exhaust system, and seat, brakes and pedal box borrowed from BMW M6 GT3.

BMW Concept 8 Series Unveiled And It Looks Absolutely Fabulous!

It is time of the year again. The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is upon us and like every other year, this prestigious event where classic and vintage cars congregate is also the hotbed for big name automakers to show off their proudest rides, concepts included, and this irresistibly good-looking 2018 BMW Concept 8 Series coupe is among them.

VW Has A 400 HP Hybrid Golf GTI With An Electric Drive That Will Surprise You

Look what we have here! It’s a VW Golf GTI with a dose of electric power and when we said “a dose,” we do really mean ‘a dose’. How? This particular Golf here, dubbed Golf GTI First Decade, has 410 PS, or about 404 HP, but that impressive number is solely from its petrol engine. You must be thinking, “oh wow, then it must have a lot more ponies under the hood when combine with the electric drive?” Ermmm, no. The thing is, the 48V electric motor, which drives the rear wheels, only produces a very modest 12 kW (16 HP). As you can imagine, that’s really nothing to shout about.

Lambo-ish 680 HP 4-Door Electric Supercar, Elextra, Will Launch In 2019

If you have been longing for a performance ride that looks and performs like a supercar, but without bearing the guilt of stifling this little blue marble of ours, well, then the Elextra 4-Seat 4-Door Electric Supercar may be what you have been looking. As far as look is concerned, we can’t help but to see a tint of Pagani and Lamborghini silhouette in Elextra’s first ride. Though aesthetically uncanny, it does differentiate itself from those exotic rides by going family-friendly. How so? Well, if you look closely, it actually has four doors and on the inside, it is a full-fledged four-seater. Also, it has got four-wheel drive too. Sweet. Love the shape and also love the fact that it allows me to carry more than one girlfriend at a time. Not that I have that many, but you know, just in case. Continue reading Lambo-ish 680 HP 4-Door Electric Supercar, Elextra, Will Launch In 2019

BMW Announced Exclusive Limited-run Special Edition M4 CS With 10 More HP

If you haven’t got your hands on the pricey and hard-to-obtain track-focused M4 GTS, or for some reason, you are all nuts about collecting every single M4 that rolls out of the German automaker’s factory, then here’s another for your consideration: the BMW M4 CS sports coupe. BMW said the CS variety fills the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the tracked-focused BMW M4 GTS, and it is an exclusive, limited-run special edition model. In other words, it is a M4, that have better performance over the standard M4 with Competition Package. Continue reading BMW Announced Exclusive Limited-run Special Edition M4 CS With 10 More HP

Singapore’s First Supercar Is Electric, Has Hypercar Performance Figures

Oh wow. Singapore, a country where car prices are pretty much out of this world, actually has its very own supercar and this first for the tiny red dot is not just another supercar; it has all the checkboxes of an exotic ride ticked – ranging from a road hugging build to crazy doors, and also insane roof. Seriously, to call Dendrobium, as it is called, a supercar is a gross understatement. It should be in the hypercar territory, well, at least from the performance figures it is.

2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

While I agree the new Honda Civic is sporty-looking by nature, I am not all for the looks. I don’t know. It looks to me like there are just way too many things going on the exterior that makes it looks so… messy, but my perception could change if it has a 2L i-VTEC DI Turbo motor with 306 horsepower and a hefty 295 lb-ft (400 Nm!) of torque like the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R has to offer, which, btw, is happens to be the most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever. Now, you see why the leeway I had for the look that I wasn’t that impressed with? Continue reading 2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?

New Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo: 550 Horses And Seats Five

What’s the use of a fine car when not many can ride with you, eh? However, if you think the Porsche Panamera is a fine car, the good news is, you can now take along one more passenger on an exhilarating, unadulterated ride – thanks to the inclusion of an additional seat found on the newly announced 2017 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, which will be making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show (March 7-19, 2017). The Sport Turismo is the first Panamera to get three seats at the rear: two on the outside in the form of bucket-style individual seats and a not very convincing, but still a seat, center seat. I guess, it is better than nothing. At least, you know you can afford up to three kids and still be able to enjoy the performance offered by a Porsche.

Famed Swedish-born, Monaco-based professional skier Jon Olsson love for cars is no secret. The man’s latest ride, a custom Lamborghini Huracan, is as stunning as his previous rides and guess what? He’s letting it go. Already? Yes. Already. He had it not too long ago, having clocked mere 3,800 km (2,361 miles) on it, but he’s already expressing the wish to sell this luscious ride for 250k euros (or about US$269,000 based on the current going rate), citing he need a 4-seater so he has no choice but to “part with this monster for now.” Wait.
