Volkswagen New Beetle 2012

Posted: 28 Jan 2011 06:07 PM PST

In these spy photos of the VW Beetle is almost completely undressed to grasp: they remain masked only the frames of the clusters. What can I say? Essentially, the new generation of “Beetle”wants to be sporty and yet more tradition-bound style of the historic home of Volkswagen cars. The pavilion is now less convex, while the fenders are more rounded and distinct than ever and still in the front and rear fascias. The lines of the front and rear keep the simplicity of style and the circular elements seen on the generation currently available. The chassis of the Golf VI is that while the list of engines include petrol and diesel units all supercharged. It is not ruled out the arrival of a hybrid variant. The presentation will probably be in Geneva.

Posted: 28 Jan 2011 04:35 PM PST

The small luxury Aston Martin Cygnet will be on sale with prices starting at 30,995 pounds (35,970 euros). Not bad, considering that the car on which it is based, the tiny Toyota iQ, has a value much lower: 9,995 pounds (11,600 euros). The most compact cars home Aston Martin will go into production later this year. The choice to produce such a car is born from the need to reduce the overall impact of brand cars in terms of CO2 emissions, without affecting the specifications of sports cars.

Little Aston will be powered by a 1.3 four-cylinder in-line with an output of 100 hp. The car emissions are so just 110 grams per kilometer and fuel consumption will be reduced to 3.9 liters per 100 km. Enough to lower the overall level of the full range of the manufacturer.

Cygnet will be offered initially only in the United Kingdom, but his arrival is expected in the rest of Europe. It will not be a limited edition, but it is likely that the owners of Aston Martin will have a priority channel in order.

BMW M3 Station Wagon

Posted: 28 Jan 2011 04:31 PM PST

Some items would be thinking about a BMW station wagon version of the M3, although for the moment still remains in the version three volumes. The BMW 3 Series Touring version is designed to target a limited market and it would be marketed in a limited number. A car niche, then, that at the beginning did not justify a big investment and that would raise the total list price of BMW. Now you think that this new car could be produced before long time, but in a limited edition.

The possibility seems to be concrete and more than one item lends itself to seriously, we think also that a BMW M3 Touring would be sold if it were to come possibly in Europe at a price higher than € 70,000. The new M3 Touring might be provided with the same petrol engine as the sedan M3 coupe and M3, which is a 4.0-liter V8 capable of delivering 420 hp and 400 Nm of torque. BMW plans to respond in this way to a strong and determined competition in the sector.

Audi market the wagon version of S4, Mercedes AMG version of the C-Class The rumors are to be taken for what they are, but they seem to be based and lend support to the view that it is possible within a short time to see this new version of the BMW M3.
