audir8spider05 at 2009 Audi R8 Spider

Behold everyone! This is one of the best looking cars to be launched in 2009. The Audi R8 Spider.

Apparently, the R8 lose sits famous side panels in transformation to the roadster and will only be available with retractable fabric top, folding metal roof is not a possibility here!

2008 renault symbol 2 at Renault brings Symbol to GCC

Renault launched the all new 2008 Symbol in the middle east market and GCC. Also known as Thalia, The car is primarily designed for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey and the Maghreb countries. Technically it is based on the Clio II model and is a mid-range economy sedan and is terribly ugly! It actually reminds me of Dacia Logan! Symbol measures at 4.26 meters in length and 1.43 meters in height and is powered by a 1.4 16V petrol engine with four-speed automatic transmission. Renault didn’t mention its power figures in the press release so expect it to be awfully low! Read the rest of this entry »

lamborghini lp640 mule 2 560px at Lamborghini Murcielago SV Possible Specs

A Lamborghini test mule based on Murcielago has been around for a while and got scooped several times, and now there are some stories about what is to come but it’s no official, it is actually based on some fanatic forums!! Called SV (superveloce) is expected to be a lightweight hardcore version of the current Murci, not totally stripped though as they say it’ll come with a fine leather and alcantara interior. It is possible that it comes as ” LP670-SV”, in that case it would be a 670hp monster with top speed just above 200mph and fixed rear wing. Rumor has it that SV will be a rear wheel drive instead of all, for the sake of weight. Finally, it would cost some where around $390,000 , 25% more than current LP640, according to report.

It was to go on sale this year but GM reportedly killed the project and limit Pontiac models to only three vehicles by 2012.  Based on the sedan, G8 Sport Truck was a creation of Holden, GM’s Australian subsidiary and honestly it possibly would be a rubbish car but very cool at the same time. It could be the replacement for the famous El Camino ! Read the rest of this entry »

kia magentis at KIA Magentis facelift

KIA Motors has given the Magentis model a proper facelift for the European market. The previous version was a miserable copy from the Nissan Altima of the time, a boring basic sedan which was primarily built for American market! But with the new one, considering the Europeans, KIA didn’t want to come up soft. So they redesigned almost every thing. It has a new front and rear end and a big chrome grille, but despite all the efforts, it still looks too ordinary, too basic. Read the rest of this entry »
