The star of BMW’s booth at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show will no doubt be the Concept X4, a pre-production model that reveals how the brand’s second Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) will look like. As with the larger X6 model, BMW wanted to combine the high ground clearance and powerful aspect of an SUV with the dynamic lines and elegant roofline of a coupe. Read more »
It may not have the firepower to worry the latest crop of German über-sedans such as the Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG or the BMW M5 but, nevertheless, the 2014 Chevrolet SS that was unveiled today at the Daytona International Speedway, where its racing version also debuted at the Daytona 500 NASCAR event, is a welcome addition to the Bow Tie’s range.

There’s no doubt that Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne is an outspoken and ambitious man. Paradoxically, while he succeeded in helping turn Chrysler around, the group’s European operations are in trouble.
His most recent plan is to use the Chrysler tie-up to boost sales of Maserati. He has quite a tight time-schedule, too: as Maserati CEO Harald Wester said, he wants the Modena-based luxury carmaker to deliver 50,000 vehicles by 2015.
Well, that’s less than half of what Porsche sells today. At the same time, it’s more than eight times the 6,159 cars Maserati shifted in 2011!
Well, according to Autonews, Marchionne will invest US$ 1.2 billion in Maserati and is counting on the Quattroporte flagship saloon, the upcoming smaller Ghibli sedan and the Levante SUV, as well as the 2,300-strong U.S. Chrysler dealership network, to help him achieve this target.
German sports and luxury car tuner DMC wants to cater to the needs of those who prefer to see its products on film and at least in some sort of action, with a new video for its rather colorful Lamborghini Aventador Molto Veloce LP900.
We do have to admit, though, the clip has far more music going on for it than what we would have preferred, especially given the Aventador's wonderful V12 music track and which is said to be further enhanced by DMC's titanium exhaust system that weighs only 1/10th of the stock unit (34kg).
If you're looking for some juggling action from synthetically augmented products placed in the tiniest of holders, don't expect to find it here, well, at least not in our primary video because we did add a second clip, but only for reference purposes so you can better understand the storyline.
And unlike those real professional ladies enjoying a ride in superfast sports car as any other…normal woman would do, the unnamed blonde on the black leather seat of the GT-R has a mind and a mouth of her own.
Some of our favorite quotes include, "This GT-R has nothing on those twin-turbo Gallardo" and "No girl, he does his car like he does his woman, quarter mile a time, 10 seconds the most".
