I’d hazard a guess that this is the F-TYPE we’ve all been waiting for. Ever since the C-X16 first appeared in 2011, reigniting thoughts…
The all-new Type 981 Cayman premiered this evening at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, marking the third generation of Porsche’s 2-seater sports car that was first launched in 2006.
The Jaguar Land Rover webcast from this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show will be worth tuning in for one reason and one reason only – the new XFR-S. It’s loud, proud and impossible to miss in its bright French Racing Blue paintwork.
Jaguar’s C-X16 concept made its North American debut this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, finished in a new colour called Neutron White.
The Beetle R Concept has made its American debut today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, following its unveiling in Frankfurt earlier this year.
While the familiar outline of the latest Beetle is still clear, the R Concept adds the kind of muscled enhancements that seem entirely appropriate in image-conscious California.
With a kerb weight of 1,920kg the new Panamera GTS is certainly no light-weight, but in every other respect Porsche have fettled their four-seater sports saloon to go harder, faster and deliver a more rewarding drive.
After making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, Jaguar has taken the top off its most powerful model just in time for summer.. Well, perhaps not here in the UK, but rather than let rain, snow and freezing-fog stop play, Jaguar has chosen to launch its new XKR-S Convertible in sunny Los Angeles during this week’s Auto Show.
You may not be a fan of Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos, but there’s no doubting their popularity, with Gymkhana 3 having now clocked up more than 36 million views on YouTube and becoming the most watched automotive video of all time. Well Gymkhana FOUR completed filming last week and will be hitting the interweb next Tuesday 16th August.
Over the weekend Ken Block unveiled his new racecar in its final livery – the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle (“H.F.H.V.”). Block described it as an “All new car, new livery, new awesome!”
In his announcement he also confirmed that his newest Ford Fiesta race car, also known by the nickname “the hybrid”, is designed as one car to do three tasks – gymkhana, stage rally and rally cross.
When we caught up with Ken Block in Pembrokeshire last month, we discovered first-hand what his Gymkhana FOUR racecar looked like, we even learned what it sounds like, but Ken remained tight-lipped over the exact details of its powerplant. All he would say is that it’s a ‘Hybrid’ and that it was just as much fun as his 700-bhp Gymkhana 3 Ford Fiesta.
Amidst all the glitzy sports car and hybrid-vehicle premieres at the LA Auto Show this week, you’d be forgiven for overlooking Subaru’s latest ‘concept’ model which broke cover yesterday. Subaru have experienced more than their fair share of difficulties trying to evolve their most popular model, and from our experience of Subaru’s recent concept vehicles we know there’s a strong likelihood of this Impreza Design Concept becoming the fully-fledged production model.
Today a novel step was taken to bring the car and bike industries just that little bit closer – AMG and Ducati have agreed to work together closely in future to develop common marketing activities and sponsorship propositions. The cooperation agreement was signed during a press conference at the Los Angeles Motor Show by Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH and Gabriele del Torchio, President and CEO of Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A.
