Jaguar will expand its line-up in 2013, with the launch of a new flagship model – the 542bhp XJR saloon. Making its global debut…
After teasing with the LF-LC 2+2 sports coupe concept at this year’s Detroit and Geneva motor shows, Lexus has finally declared their production intent with the LF-CC – a mid-size coupe that will be produced in the near future.
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.
You can gain a sense for how BMW has chosen to position the new 3 Series, by the new marketing campaign which was kicked off today. The launch campaign for the new 3 Series developed by creative agency Interone, Munich, underlines the sporty and dynamic character of the vehicle, coupled with high levels of efficiency and impressive design.
BMW has announced pricing and details of its new 3 Series saloon, ahead of the model’s official unveiling at 3PM (BST) today. Since 1975 BMW has sold more than 12 million 3 Series and the sixth-generation 3er is set to continue the success of its predecessors.
The 6th generation of BMW’s most popular model will premiere this Friday (14th October) and you can watch it live by tuning into the broadcast on the brand’s Facebook page.
Call me a sad old romantic, but I love these images of Jaguar’s iconic E-Type and XF in New York. We’re so often presented with press images devoid of any life or emotion, that when these arrived last night I thought it warranted an article all on its own.
Is it just me or does this new A3 concept look more like how a future A4 should look? Seriously, I had to check the press release more closely in case it was a typo. But no, this is indeed an A3 and the for the first time it comes in four-door saloon form.
When you hear that Italian car maker De Tomaso is back after a 7 year absence, you’d be forgiven for getting excited by the prospect – after all this is the same marque that gave us the Pantera GTS, a direct competitor in its time to Lamborghini’s Countach. But I’ve felt almost embarrassed to publish the story, less I betray the disappointment that surfaces every time I see pictures of the sensible looking De Tomaso SLS. It’s just not a De Tomaso though, is it?
We’ve been a little cynical in the past about Hyundai’s promotional campaign for the Sonata Turbo, the Sonata is not exactly the kind of car any of us would associate with ‘speed’ – in fact stick a Taxi sign on its roof and it would look right at home waiting in the taxi-rank at Slough station. But over in the USA, where there’s always been a greater affinity for Japanese and Korean marques, Hyundai have been mounting a campaign to transform the Sonata’s dowdy image and re-position it as a car to be desired rather than just used.
The launch of Audi’s new A6 feels like it’s been overshadowed by the A7 which arrived on the scene back in July. Back then Audi described the A7 as “..standing almost toe to toe with the current A6 Saloon” and now that we’ve pored over the details of this new A6, this quote could be reworded from ‘almost’ to ‘exactly’ – we’re struggling to spot the difference between the two, apart from the A7’s fastback rear and higher price.
Jaguar has taken the wraps off this new XJ design concept as part of Jaguar’s 75th anniversary celebrations.
