The 2012 Mercedes Benz C class will reach the US by September after its launch at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st. The technology is borrowed from the C-class sedan and infused in to a coupe body. The car is 1.5 inches lower than its sedan.
After a series of teasers that had enthusiasts restless with anticipation, BMW has finally released a video that gives a full glimpse of the 1-Series M Coupe. The vehicle had a quiet unveiling at the Autosport Awards ceremony in London, with Dr. Kay Segler and WTCC driver Andy Priaulx present.
To get us up close and personal with the Vantage N420 model, Aston Martin has released a new video. The alluring vehicle, resplendent in a creamy white hue, takes on the Nurburgring circuit, the surrounding German roads and the autobahn with style and élan.
The first details of the 2011 HPE700 Camaro Convertible from the Hennessey Performance stables are out. As has been the case with the company’s earlier HPE700 coupe model, the upcoming the convertible will come with a CarbonAero body kit that would comprise a front splitter, a rear diffuser and revised side skirts.
Jaguar’s new XK Coupe Concept vehicle will be revealed at the 2010 Paris Auto Show. The concept will take the design statement that Jaguar is so well known for to the next level. The unveiling happens in the year of the company’s 75th anniversary.
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe will come in the form of the R-Spec avatar for 2011. The model that would sport a DOHC 3.8-liter V6 engine is expected to race to 149 mph powered by the 306-horsepower (228-kW) engine and its close ratio six-speed manual transmission.
Expected to come with a price tag of around $26,750, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec would sport 13.4-inch front, 13.0-inch rear ventilated discs, with four-piston red brake calipers from Brembo. The 19 inch alloy wheel around them would don gun metal paint and the tires are to be built by Bridgestone Potenza.
Notable features would include track-tuned suspension that has been spruced up with performance shocks and springs, front and rear stabilizer bars, and a front strut brace. Further, the car would offer anti-lock brakes, brake assist, electronic brake-force distribution, electronic stability, traction control and as many as six airbags ensuring maximum safety.
Hyundai is also believed to have gone an extra mile to bring in reduction in weight. Automatic transmission has also been done away with.
Nissan may be doing all the green talking with models like the Leaf — which already sounds like a sales success, but they also have other impressive plan. The rumor mill is on the grind again and if the gossip hounds are to be believed, we might soon get to witness the Infiniti M in coupe and convertible versions.
There is no conclusive evidence suggesting the arrival of these two models but the word is that Nissan is considering expanding the M Lineup to compete with the likes of the E-Class (which I tested in Stuttgart last month — the coupe) and the 6-Series. It is most likely that the models will be based on the Essence Concept if Nissan does give its production a nod-ahead.
