The Suzuki Swift S-CONCEPT reflect the concept of a premium sport compact with uncompromised performance. The Suzuki Swift S-CONCEPT body is 60mm wider and 30mm lower than that of the standard Swift and has such a strong visual presence that it doesn’t seem as compact as it actually is. Dynamic-looking front and rear bumpers and a big rear spoiler evoke high levels of acceleration and power. The Suzuki Swift S-CONCEPT 18-inch wheels give a sense of solidity and stability. The Suzuki Swift S-CONCEPT headlamps and rear combination lamps have exclusive designs with high-tech accents.
A 553-horsepower, 4.4-liter Twin-Power Turbo V8 shared with the X5 M and X6 M behemoths, plus the small matter of 500 pound-feet of torque between 1,500 and 5,750 rpm. Redline is now right around 7,200 rpm instead of the discontinued E60 M5's V10 that smacked us around at 8,250.Source: http://www.autoblog.com/

If you aren't happy with a Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V8 under the hood of your Maserati, we'd keep that sentiment to yourself, less your brand be saddled with a somewhat less inspired power plant in the near future. According to Inside Line, shadowy sources at the Italian automaker claim that in the near future, a twin-turbocharged version of the 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged Pentastar V6 (you know, from Chrysler) may replace the thirsty eight-pots.
Lotus has decided to stop production of the North American-spec Elise and Exige models from August. The lightweight terror pushed the automaker back on the map in the States in 2004, but a federal exemption for a lack of "smart" airbags on the sports cars is about to run out.
The production for UK and the rest of Europe will continue with the new 1.6-liter four pot until the next Elise arrives in 2015. We can expect at least one or two more market-specific versions to roll out of Hethel before the taps are officially turned off.
For the debut of the 2012 BMW 1 series, BMW chose to show the five-door hatchback model, but the range will eventually grow to include a three-door hatchback followed by the coupe, cabriolet and if the grapevine holds true, a longer and more spacious Gran Turismo version in the likes of the 3-Series GT we recently showed you in these spy shots.
Further down the line, the Bavarian automaker’s freshly launched 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with around 240-horses will most likely make it in the 128i replacing the current 130i that comes with a 3.0-liter straight six pushing out 258HP. BMW has not yet said if it will offer a straight-six engine on the new 1-Series.
The owners of the Ford Pinto are taking to the roads in celebration of the car's 40th birthday. They are driving from Denver to the Carlisle Ford Nationals in Pennsylvania this week, a journey of approximately 1,600 miles.
Norman and Louise Bagi lead the caravan with their 1976 Pinto Runabout and 1977 Pinto coupe, respectively.
BMW announced several modifications to the 2012 BMW 1-Series Coupe that accentuate efficiency and premium quality. The unmistakable profile of the BMW 1-Series Coupe, which represents the purest expression of BMW DNA is now sharper than ever. The new design of the front fascia on the 128i includes BMW's innovative Air Curtain that counters turbulence near the wheel arches and so reduces the aerodynamic resistance of the vehicle. New exterior design accents have been incorporated into the headlight and tail light clusters. In the interior, new switches and controls have a more refined look and feel.
In 2008 BMW introduced the 1-Series to the US, an authentic performance coupe that drew inspiration from the iconic BMW 2002 model of some 40 years ago. As perhaps the next BMW legend, the BMW 1-Series Coupe represents the core BMW philosophy of pure performance, compact dimensions, and premium design. By combining sporty rear-wheel-drive dynamics, agile handling, powerful engines and seating for four, the 2012 1-Series Coupe continues to reinvent the niche that the legendary BMW 2002 created.
Powerful engines, the rear-wheel drive typical of the brand and inspirational agility make the BMW 1-Series Coupe stand out from the crowd. It possesses characteristics unique in the compact premium vehicle segment.
With these updates, the BMW 1-Series Coupe develops further as one of the most desirable Ultimate Driving Machines® in the business. Two versions are available: the 128i Coupe and the 135i Coupe. Each has been enhanced to improve convenience and comfort for the BMW 1-Series' fourth model year.
The Hyundai Veloster three-door coupe was officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. It features a unique coupe design with one door on the driver's side and two doors on the passenger side of the vehicle.
The Veloster is powered by a 1.6L four-cyl that puts out 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft. of torque. The engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. It's also expected to get around 40 mpg on the highway. A more powerful version is also reportedly planned, with rumors circulating that a turbocharged version will generate 208 horsepower from its 1.6L engine.
Sales of the Veloster will kick off first in Europe and sales in North America will commence later this year.
Audi has unveiled the A1 Clubsport Quattro Concept finally brings Audi's all-wheel-drive Quattro system to the tiny hatchback.
Currently the Audi A1 is only offered in Europe with its power going to the front wheels. Audi is currently working on adding its all-wheel-drive system to the A1, but in the meantime we get a preview of what it could be like with the Clubsport Quattro Concept. The concept is powered by a five-cylinder 2.5L turbocharged engine. The engine is based on the same unit used in the Audi TT RS and RS 3 Sportback models, but with significantly more power in this concept. The TFSI engine puts out 503 horsepower and 487 lb-ft. of torque. Thanks to its small size and the fact that it only weighs just over 3,000 pounds, the concept can reach 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and its top speed is governed at 155 mph.
