Rolls Royce Germany unveiled a special edition Ghost that it developed in cooperation with Procar Automobile and named V-Specification. If you thought that this is just another special car that offers just some exterior and interior updates, you are wrong. The new Ghost V-Specification also comes with some significant engine upgrades.

The Ghost V-Specification is powered by a 6.6-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine that delivers a total of 593 horsepower — an increase of 30 horsepower over the base 563 horsepower. Unfortunately, this added power does not lower the Ghost’s 0-to-60 mph time any, as it remains at 4.7 seconds.

The new Rolls Royce Ghost V-Specification will be available for order only between January and June of 2014, and along with the power upgrades, it will also offer some exterior and interior updates. The model is priced at €330,820 — about $450,000 at the current exchange rates.

Who knew that the Adam , Opel’s little compact hatch, would turn out to be sassy ride that has caught the attention of so many athletes and musicians.

We’ve already seen what Valentino Rossi could do to the Opel Adam if you gave him free reign to customize it. Now, the German company is tapping into another famous celeb to customize the Adam: Canadian singer and photographer Bryan Adams.

Yes, this one is the Adam by Adams. Try saying that quickly five times over.

Known for his powerful ballads that dominated the airwaves in the 90’s, Bryan Adams also happens to be a well-respected photographer and it’s through this that Opel decided to team up with the singer, allowing him to take photos of the Adam for a calendar that will be called ’ADAM by Bryan Adams.

More than just taking photos, Opel also granted Adams a chance to design his own Adam, which if you ask us, looks really tantalizing in that dark camouflage finish all over its body. The special-edition Adam also features a black roof, tinted headlights, and a new set of black alloy wheels. Taken all of it together, the model explodes with an identity all its own, the kind you have a hard time getting out of your head, so much so that we wouldn’t waste a minute pouncing on one if we had a chance to do so.

Geography, though, isn’t so kind.

The special-edition Adam will be limited to just 10 units, with proceeds from the sale of all 10 models going to the Bryan Adams Foundation.

There’s a reason why Rolls-Royce is rolling out all these special edition models in China . The market is fast becoming the largest one for luxury automakers and what better way to stake a significant chunk of it than to entice customers with vehicles no other country in the world will carry.

Sounds like a smart plan, right?

Rolls-Royce seems to think so, and that’s why its been busy the past couple of months launching special-edition Ghost models , including its latest creation, the Ghost Cantor Glory Edition.

Recently introduced at Auto Guangzhou, the Ghost Cantor Glory Edition pays homage to Guangzhou with a number of design elements attributed to the south Chinese city, including drawing inspiration from the iconic Canton Tower, while also adding touches of Guangzhou, no more distinct than the addition of the city’s Five Rams emblem in the coachline, veneer panels, headrests and dashboard.

A two-tone color scheme also points to the uniqueness of the Ghost Cantor Glory Edition with RR opting to use a Madeira Red for a glorious regal history and Cassiopeia Silver or Carrera White for the bright and modern present. The contrasting colors offer a touch of balance between the colors of the night sky with the metallic body of the aforementioned Canton Tower.

The finer details, including customer options to give this special-edition ride more distinct styling, can be accomplished through its Bespoke Atelier program, which is coming to China for the first time, and offering a range of customization options for all those deep-pocketed Chinese buyers.

The BMW M3 and the M4 Coupe are understandably getting all the attention today, but BMW is quick to point out that those aren’t the only two models that it’s proudly showcasing.

A special-edition BMW Z4 is also getting some love ahead of its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show . The model is called the Pure Fusion Edition and while it lacks in any kind of noticeable exterior changes, it does showcase the company’s new Pure Fusion Design equipment package, which is all sorts of incredible if you’re the type to enjoy your luxury with plenty servings of sportiness to go with it.

That, essentially, is what BMW is trying to sell with the Z4 Pure Fusion Design. You get your sports car in full blast and add a special interior that has more leather than you’d expect.

Kudos to Bimmer for killing two birds with one stone. It’s cars like this that can really draw interest back to an aging model, like the Z4.
