    Report: Veritas planning RS III Coupe, all-new SUV

    From its raging 600hp BMW M5 V10 engine to its complete lack of ABS and traction control and its single-seater speedster layout, the Veritas RS III is perhaps the most potent yet completely pure driving experience available on the street today. But a new report out of England has Veritas planning a...

  • 2010 bmw 5 series rendering 002

    No one that's driven the current BMW M5 is likely to complain about a lack of power or technology, but BMW is fixing to up the ante on both accounts, according to the latest news. Replacing the current V10 with a twin-turbo V8 will boost power to around 600hp, while an F1-derived KERS system could see production as well. The KERS, or Kinetic Energy Recovery System, is a type of hybrid system that translates unused momentum into stored energy. But unlike typical regenerative braking systems or traditional hybrids, the KERS system uses that stored energy for an extra punch of power - at the...

    Wiesmann GT MF5 picked as Official Safety Car for 2009 FIA GT Championship

    Wiesmann’s MF5 has been in production for just over a year but the striking GT’s combination of a BMW M5 V10 drivetrain and seductively retro styling has made it very popular among performance circles. One group that has noticed the car is the FIA, which has picked it as the Official...

    Avus Performance RS6 pushes output to 700hp, stirs up racial tension

    It's common for a tuner car to cause controversy over its looks - some are downright hideous, after all - but it's rare for one to raise eyebrows over political issues. That's just what happened to the Avus Performance RS6, however, which was unfortunately released with a mis-translated title of...

    G-Power Hurricane CS is world’s fastest BMW coupe with 370km/h top speed

    The G-Power name has become synonymous with extreme BMWs and the company’s latest Hurricane CS based on the M6 Coupe fits in perfectly with that description. After G-Power’s own M5-based Hurricane RS broke the world record for the fastest sedan with a top speed of 367.4km/h (228mph)...

  • lexus lf a spy shots sept 08 002

    The supercar that almost wasnt, and still might not be - the Lexus LF-A, or LFA as it's known to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, recently underwent a special kind of exhibition in Milan during Fashion Week, and now it could be shown off in final form come October's Tokyo Motor Show. A report from an anonymous source emerged today also claiming that the Toyota-Subaru joint coupe known so far only as codename 086A, will also be joining the supercar at the deserted Japanese car show. The source, dug up by Edmunds, revealed the details but backed them up only with the idea that Toyota would...

    IMSA unleashes the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 GTV

    Last July IMSA unveiled what has to be one of the most restrained modification efforts ever to touch a Lamborghini. The underlying concept is marrying Italian design with German engineering - not such an odd concept considering Lamborghini's VW Group parentage. Now they've added to their portfolio...

  • 09acurarl front s

    Tough times in terms of sales and profits are hitting the entire industry hard, but Honda appears to be taking it particularly badly if the latest report from Japan proves true. News of the cancellation of Honda's V8 program, its CR-Z convertible, and perhaps most lamentably, its next-gen S2000 roadster, has emerged today. The report indicates that Honda's drastic reshaping of its future product lineup is being done with an eye to a leaner, greener brand image, according to AutoWeek. These factors would certainly toll the death knell of a planned RWD Acura V8 - possibly a heavily redesigned...
