Every Audi TT is noted for its clear lines, unmistakable dynamism and the driving characteristics of a sports car. Audi now presents the TT in its most purist form: the clubsport quattro study.
The Audi TT clubsport quattro study reduces the TT Roadster to a pure driving machine. A powerful engine, state-of-the-art technology and numerous traits borrowed from the world of motorsport are the dominant features of the TT clubsport quattro.
The goal that the development engineers set themselves for this vehicle study was to achive purism at a premium level. No hood, no A-post instead, a wraparound windscreen kept extremely low which deliberately evokes images of a speedster. The flat, slightly tinted window strip surrounds the cockpit. The panoramic windscreen and the two humps located behind the interior in place of the hood compartment are reminiscent of a racing car. The rollover bars familiar from the TT Roadster are kept flatter and are the same height as the sports bucket seats. (more…)
The Mercedes SL Class continues its success story in a revised edition. As a matter of course, the engineers and designers at KICHERER have pulled out all the stops in order to enhance the Roadsterâ€™s exclusiveness and sportiness.
Thanks to the KICHERER K60 Biturbo 12-cylinder engine fitted with 605hp/445kW, the SL 600 becomes one of the most powerful Roadsters around the globe. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and 200 km/h after 14.2 seconds are values speaking for themselves, just like the electronically limited peak speed of 300 km/h.

Lamborghini fans could face some indecision over whether or not the company’s latest offering honors their tradition of good-looking cars. The Italian sports car maker is famous for producing vehicles that define beauty and pace. While the latter quality is sure to be found in the company’s latest offering, the Alar, the initial reaction to press pictures of the car has been heavily divided between guarded praise and outright criticism.

This is the second time weâ€™re feeding on the Phantom, perhaps, the stunning machine keeps calling us back.
The Phantom Drophead Coupe is shorter in size and has coach-style doors, which open from the front, allowing for easy access to the rear seats. It has brushed steel hood and teak cover for the convertible top.
Audi is busy prepping three new versions of its new A5 coupe â€“ headlined by this blistering 450bhp RS5 that arrives early next year to take on its new BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 rivals. Like all R models, the topdog A5 has been fully developed by Quattro, Audiâ€™s in-house go-fast engineering team.
As our impressions show, the RS5 will get the full Quattro treatment. The glorious high-revving 4.2-litre V8 that powers the RS4 gets plumbed into the RS5â€™s nose, complete with two small and highly responsive turbochargers that will take peak power up to the 450bhp. Thatâ€™s not a great deal more than the S5â€™s 354bhp, but the RS5 searing pace will come from its phenomenal blower-enhanced torque â€“ expect at least 500lb ft of twist action to plateau across the rev range.
Lamborghini has created the answer to critics of their Gallardo (pronounced ga-yar-do) baby supercar. Despite sporting the famed fighting bull emblem, Lamborghini’s entry-level offering was criticized for its relatively “docile” handling and civilization. However, Sant’Agata’s engineers have addressed these concerns by introducing a lightweight version of the car called the Superleggera. (more…)
