This 2023 BMW X6 Prototype is Hiding A Lot and Very Little at the Same Time
Pretty much all BMW models are going under the knife for a refresh. One of those models is the X6, and our spy photographers have spotted it testing again. This isn’t the first time it’s been spied, though. The facelift edX6 as well as the X6 M have been seen testing with camouflage several times. The X6 doesn’t seem to boast a lot of changes when compared to the outgoing model, but there is enough the keep it fresh for a year or two more.
$39,990 Isn’t A Bad Starting Price For The 400-Horsepower Nissan Z!
After the seventh-gen Z broke cover in August last year, Nissan has, at long last, officially announced the prices of its long-awaited and much-hyped sports car. The 2023 Nissan Z will kick off with a starting price of $39,990 plus destination, which brings it to a grand total of $41,015.
The Subaru Legacy Evolves for 2023 with New Tech and a Fresh Face
With the SUV revolution, budget sedans are becoming rare and old. But, Subaru has kept the Legacy sedan alive by updating it for the 2023 model year. The updates include an aggressive front fascia, an updated driver assistance system called EyeSight, an updated infotainment system, and a turbocharged engine for the Sport trim. The updates were very important since it competes with well-known rivals such as the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata.
Alfa Romeo Alfetta May Return As a Mid-Size Sedan, Sometime Between 2022 And 2026
The long-needed “good marriage” of Alfa Romeo is finally a fact. While the brand was in a rather rough spot, despite churning out a series of great models – the 4C, Giulia, and Stelvio – being under the banner of Stellantis is certainly opening new possibilities. By new possibilities, we mean new models, and, according to a 2021 article from Alfisticrew.com, Alfa Romeo may be working on another rear-wheel-drive, sports luxury sedan, and it may happen sometime between 2022 and 2026.
2022 Manhart CRT 800
The Cayenne Coupe, like the entire Porsche lineup, is due for an update. However, that won’t happen until later in 2022, so, for now, we must work with what we have. Manhart decided to take the Cayenne Turbo Coupe under its wings and give it some serious improvements.
Its latest package, the CRT 800, not only makes the German SUV look better on the outside, but also adds a lot more power under the hood.
Is It Finally Time For McLaren To Take The Crossover Plunge?
McLaren is synonymous with putting together some pretty cynical and darn right outrageous supercars, but we’re in 2022, and I’m sure that the idea of a McLaren SUV must have surely crossed your mind. Ever wondered what that could look like? Well, this digital render by andras.s.veres gives us a good idea of what an SUV made in Woking, the U.K. could look like.
2023 Polestar 2 Specs, Pricing, and Complete Buyer’s Guide
The Polestar 2 has been with us for quite a while now, and over the years, the Swedish EV brand has been giving it incremental updates. For 2023, however, the updates are much more pronounced, especially under the skin, though it’s not significant enough to be considered a mid-cycle facelift. Due to these updates, the Polestar 2 has been given a price increase across the range. The Polestar 2 Single Motor now starts at $48,400 (+$2,500), while the Dual Motor version now starts at $51,900 (+$700). These prices do not yet consider the $7,500 federal tax credit and $1,400 destination fee.
2023 Audi S6 and S7 Design Edition
Audi announced updates for its entire 2023 lineup, and the S6 and the S7 sedans are no exception. While no major exterior or interior updates will be offered, both models can now be ordered with an exclusive Design Edition package. It is only about some cool exterior and interior color combination, and it does make both sedans look better than ever.
The new Design Edition package will be offered exclusively for the 2023 model year and can be ordered starting June.
The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Will Cost You More than $1,000 Per Horsepower
BMW’s Hommage lineup launched back in 2008 with the M1 Hommage, a model that essentially celebrated the legendary M1’s 30th birthday. Unfortunately, BMW never brought back the M1 beyond that concept or made a successor to it (unless you count the M8, which we wouldn’t), but the 2015 3.0 CSL Hommage concept will be making a comeback. A wide-eyed, big-grilled, thick-bodied concept from 2015 entering production in 2022? It sounds pretty crazy, and it might be, but wait until you hear how limited and how expensive it’s going to be.
The 2023 Toyota Highlander Turbo Is Torque-Happy and Eco-Friendly
Toyota’s most famous three-row budget SUV, the Highlander, is set to arrive with a new turbocharged 2.4-liter inline-four engine, dual 12.3-inch displays for the driver information and infotainment, and a handful of new standard features. The Highlander is receiving constant updates since the fourth-generation came out in 2020, and the automaker is making it a lucrative offering with every new update.
Bruce Banner Becomes The Hulk: We’ve Spied The Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s Hardcore Version, And It Looks Nasty!
The Purosangue has been Ferrari’s spotlight-stealer in recent times. Ferrari has been busy with other projects like the one-off SP48 Unica, but the Purosangue has been the talk of the town. But, that said, we’ve spotted quite a few camouflaged projects of it in recent times. First, we saw a V12 GT Chassis test mule, and now, our spy photographers caught an early prototype for the Ferrari SF90VS. This is a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale and is expected to be revealed in 2023. So, what’s the scoop that we have so far?
600 Miles Of Range, 0-60 mph In Two Seconds; The Fisker Ronin Could Be A Game-Changer!
Shortly after Fisker announced the electric Ocean SUV, we were offered details about a second project set to arrive in 2024. Named Pear (no, not the fruit, but an abbreviation of ’Personal Electric Automotive Revolution’), this model will be another SUV inspired by the Ocean and with a driving range of 250 miles.
However, it looks like 2024 will be a big year for Fisker, as the company just teased the third model. It will be called ’Ronin’ and will be unveiled in August 2023, with production starting in the second half of 2024.
Toyota GR Supra Vs Nissan Z Sound Comparison: Which Car Tugs Your Aural Strings Better?
This video by TheCarKraze on YouTube is a compilation of a bunch of other tiny clips put together that should give you a good idea about what the Toyota GR Supra and the Nissan Z sound like. This is a sound comparison of the two cars at idle, using launch control followed by a full-on drifting scene.
2023 Nissan Z – What Really Changed Under the Skin
The truth is that, at its core, the Nissan Z is underpinned by a platform that’s been used for decades. And, with the Infiniti engine under the hood with the very same output found in the Red Sport models, it’s easy to assume that Nissan simply cobbled a bunch of stuff together from existing parts bins into a new body and called it a day. That actually couldn’t be further from the truth, though, and you’ll be surprised to know just what happened below the skin to make the Nissan Z so new that it will drive better than any Z car that came before it.
2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Night Edition
Mercedes-Benz is not the only automaker out there to offer a Night Edition package. In fact, this has been quite a popular name among the special editions lately. For example, Hyundai is offering a Sonata N Line Night Edition, while Ram added the same name to its 1500 and Heavy Duty models.
However, the name has the longest history in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. It has even been offered for models like the Maybach S 650. But, the latest addition is for the E-Class lineup, including coupe, cabrio, sedan, and station wagon, with the exception of the AMG models.
The Ferrari Purosangue Straight Up Needed A V-12 Engine
Right in the midst of the one-off Ferrari SP48 Unica being revealed, Ferrari released a social posting and a new webpage hinting at a new V-12 engine along with the phrase “Heart of a Thoroughbred.” Ferrari was quite vague about the engine otherwise, however, ’Purosangue’ translates to ’thoroughbred’ in Italian, so it was easy to draw a line between the two. The engine could have also been for the production version of this GT Chassis that was spotted testing in late April, but now we know for sure this V-12 will at least land in the Purosangue first.
Is The BMW i4 Worthy Enough To Be The Tesla Model 3 Killer?
In his latest video, Doug DeMuro got to check out the new BMW i4 M50, which is supposedly the Bavarian automaker’s all-electric take on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. As with any Doug video, this is an in-depth tour of the first-ever all-electric BMW to be given the full M treatment. Granted this is an M Sport model rather than an out and out M, but with 536 horsepower on tap, I don’t see anyone complaining.
It’s no surprise that with that the i4 M50 is aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3 Performance. The Polestar 2 was yet another noteworthy model that also goes up against the Tesla. Coming back to how the i4 stacks up against the Model 3 (457 horsepower), while it is more powerful as opposed to the Tesla, the Model 3 has a considerably longer range at 315 miles as opposed to the BMW’s 270 miles.
Pagani C10 Spied - Is This The Supercar of the Decade?
Our spy photographers capture cars and prototypes from many mainstream automakers regularly. You even get to see test mules from brands like Ferrari. But, it’s not every day that you get to see a prototype draped in camouflage from a supercar marque like Pagani! And, that is exactly why the spy shots we’ve received now are special and exciting.
There were hushed talks about a new Pagani supercar being under development, but we now have proof that it is. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting to you, the Pagani C10!
Nissan GT-R EV – It’s Happening, We Just Don’t Know When
It seemed like it took forever, but Nissan finally revealed an all-new Nissan Z, but what about the aging Nissan GT-R? That car has been in production for 15 years, and there’s literally no sign of a new-gen R36 GT-R being in the works. This comes despite the fact that noise regulations have killed its presence in Europe and safety regulations have killed its presence in Australia, leaving just the U.S. and Japan as the primary markets. Nissan isn’t planning to kill off the GT-R as once previously expected, though it is already looking well into the future beyond the next-gen model whenever that will actually happen.
Lotus Emira GT4 Race Car - Is It Really Worth Over $200,000?
After making us wait for over 10 years, Lotus finally unveiled its new car called the Emira. It made its debut at the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed a couple of months back. Now, the automaker has come up with a competition-spec race car version of the Emira. Called the Lotus Emira GT4 Race Car, it comes with a slimmer physique and some added aero stuff. It’s a concept for now, but we’ll have the real deal later this year.
Update - 05.05.2022: After revealing the specs and some images of the Emira GT4 Race Car back in September 2021, Lotus has launched it with all pomp and show at the iconic Hethel test track in Norwich, U.K. VIP attendees were treated to laps around the 2.2-mile circuit with the company’s Director of Vehicle Attributes and former British GT Championship winner, Gavan Kershaw, piloting it. The company disclosed the price as well - £165,000, which is approximately $204,250 at the current exchange rates.
Lotus even brought along a guest – a Lotus Type 30 Sports Racer. This is a 1965 GT, finished in a white exterior shade, and is powered by a Ford-sourced 4.7-liter, V-8 engine. Lotus built only 33 copies of it, and this particular example won the Whitsun Trophy at last year’s Goodwood Revival. Check out the gallery to relish the Emira GT4 Race Car as well as the 1965 Type 30 Sports Racer.
The Ferrari Purosangue Might Have a Dirty Secret
While automakers like BMW and Mercedes are downsizing their engine offerings in models like the 7 Series and even the Mercedes-AMG C43, super high-end automakers are instead using electrification to keep their legendary ICEs alive. Lamborghini has already announced a new hybrid V-12 while Bugatti has something big in the works for its next-gen supercars. Now, against all rhyme and reasoning in a time when downsizing and electrification are the key to survival, Ferrari has teased a new V-12 engine that will make its way into a “game-changing” model this summer. Now, folks, the writing is on the wall.
