Cadillac to add small Car to its lineup

cadillacGM will expand its exclusive Cadillac only assembly plant by adding an all-new small car there, the automaker announced this week. The new vehicle will add 600 jobs to the Lansing Grand River plant in Lansing, Mich. GM says it will announce the name and look of the vehicle as well as when it will launch the car at a later time, likely at the L.A. or Detroit auto shows.

The new Cadillac will be a small car, according to GM’s CEO Dan Akerson. It’s an interesting move for GM’s flagship brand, which lacks a proper flagship vehicle to compete with the Lexus LS, Mercedes-Benz S-Class or BMW 7 Series, but a smaller car also makes sense. It's unknown if the smaller car will be based on the Chevy Volt like the Cadillac Converj concept shown above.

Hyundai Equus on SEMA

Hyundai Equus

Hyundai has already shown us its GoGoGear Racing Genesis Coupe and a Rhys Millen Racing Equus. Now we get two more looks at what they're bringing to SEMA this week. Hyundai has teamed up with DUB Magazine and Mummbles Marketing on a pair of Equus sedans.

Mummbles Marketing Elegant Equus for SEMA 2010 Mummbles Marketing, a new custom shop of out Harrisburg, PA, has turned the standard Equus into a luxo-custom it calls the "Elegant Equus." Mummbles didn't just focus on looks, however; some wrenching was done on the Equus' V8 engine, too. Thanks to a turbo kit from Legacy Innovations, a nitrous system and a Magnaflow exhaust, the Elegant Equus now produces 450 horsepower. Mummbles also adds an extra iPad.

New Harley Davidson 2011

2011 Harley Davidson Superlow Front Left Side View

2011 Harley Davidson Superlow Front Left Side View
2011 Sportster SuperLow $7,999
If you ask us, it's not really a new model but a hyper-tweaked take on the standard Sporty. We spent the majority of our saddle time (split across three bikes) on it, and the SuperLow turned out to be the most refined Sportster we've ridden in years. It felt much more substantial and planted than we had any right to expect - considering Harley insisted on labeling it as an entry-level machine, targeted at younger, new and returning riders.

New Kawasaki 2011 Ninja ZX-10R

Kawasaki has stamped its foot; Team Green is sick of playing catch-up in World Superbikes, it will no longer be content to languish at the back of the field. But defeating the monstrous Aprilia RSV4 and the ominous BMW S1000RR is going to require a motorcycle leagues ahead of what Kawasaki has been rolling out in 2010. Behold, motorcycle fans, the new king of the castle. Ripping out a terrifying 210 horsepower and weighing just 198kg full of fuel and fluids, the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
leap-frogs to the front of the power and power-to-weight charts. But it's not just muscles that make this bike so special, it sports a completely redesigned chassis aimed at improving handling and racetrack lap times – and a traction control/ABS setup that ditches all notions that such systems are for safety. On the new Ninja, the intelligent electronics are all focused on making you faster than ever before on the road or track. Wouldn't it be an amazing turnaround if this machine could catapult Kawasaki back into World Superbike contention? Either way, this is one of the most exciting bikes we've seen in lime green for a lot of years, and it's a signal to the other Japanese manufacturers that near enough is no longer good enough.
There's no overstating the size of the rocket that BMW fired up the backsides of the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers when it launched its class-dominating S1000RR superbike contender last year. While unsuccessful on the racetrack thus far, the Beemer entrusted its rider with nearly 20 more horsepower than any of the Japanese bikes, breaking the magical 200-horsepower barrier, and came with a set of race- and road-ready electronics that put it leagues ahead of the rest in pretty much every comparo test on the planet.
Now, finally, the Japanese are firing their first salvo back at the Germans – and if the BMW came out of nowhere, this latest monster comes from even less auspicious origins. Kawasaki is a fallen empire in motorcycle racing history; the renowned tractor, jet-ski and train makers were regular podium and race winners throughout the early days of world Superbike racing in the 1990s, but in recent times, results in top level racing have been nothing short of embarrassing.
Kawasaki fans have long memories and undeniable passion, but for the last 6 or 7 years, lime green bikes have regularly languished right at the back of the pack both in World Superbike and MotoGP.
So as a Kawasaki owner myself, it's with considerable excitement that I look at the first Kawasaki in more than a decade that looks like a real leap forward – the 2011 ZX-10R Ninja. The bike that lured MotoGP race-winner Chris Vermeulen to waste a season circulating at the back of the field in the prime of his career with the slowest team in World Superbikes. The bike that Kawasaki believes will turn its racing fortunes around. And it looks like an absolute ripper.
Unveiled yesterday afternoon at Intermot Cologne, the new big Ninja packs a jaw-dropping spec sheet and an electronics package that's got one simple goal: this Kwaka wants to be the fastest thing on the road. Let's take a look inside its lunchbox:
200 horsepower - and that's before Ram Air
The 998cc inline-4 engine has been lightened and strengthened all over the place - but that magical 200.1 metric horsepower (PS) is what's going to count at the sales desk. Add in Kawasaki's famous affinity for ram air - that is, using aerodynamic fairings to force extra air down the engine's throat at high speeds - and you're looking at somewhere around 210 horsepower from a bog-stock motorcycle, comprehensively trousering the BMW and the vastly more expensive top shelf MV Agustas.
210 horsepower is a magnificent and terrifying figure, and one that most car owners will struggle to put in any sort of perspective. Let's put it this way – since the Ninja ZX-10R now weighs only 198kg dripping wet (a humiliating 6kg lighter than the Beemer), it's now got a horsepower-to-kilograms ratio of greater than 1:1. If you take a Mini Cooper S, which is a fairly lightweight and zippy car, you'd need to give it roughly six and a half times more power to compete with the barnstorming Kwaka. As Mr. Burns would say: "ex…cellent."
New Chassis
As nice as it is to be able to boast face-melting power figures, it wasn't ever insufficient ponies that held previous ZX-10R contenders back on the racetrack. So what's likely got Vermeulen and his team excited is the new Ninja's revised chassis.
The new frame arrangement brings the centre of gravity down lower by around 3cm, which is important for getting the bike from kneedown right to kneedown left as fast as possible. The front end geometry has also been steepened with a reduced rake for even faster steering. The new bike puts even more weight over the front wheel than before, which should give it additional stability under brakes and vastly improved feel at the front wheel. This will also reduce the ZX-10R's tendency to wheelie – but enthusiastic throttle jockeys needn't worry, it'll still wheelie until the cows come home if you want it to.
Traction control and ABS with a focus on speed, not safety
A lot of the top superbike contenders are now rolling out into the showroom equipped with some form of traction control and/or ABS. Typically, the other factories sell these features as safety additions to help save riders from their own ham-fisted use of the throttle and brake.
Not Kawasaki, however. Team Green is giving you these features so you can go faster and ride closer to the bike's limits, whether it's on the road or the track. Both systems have been modified to make sure they don't get in the way of the rider achieving maximum performance.
The big Ninja's new S-KTRC traction control system, for example, recognizes that the quickest acceleration actually occurs when you've got the perfect degree of rear-wheel slip. So it monitors front and rear wheel speeds every 5 milliseconds, then intervenes by controlling the ignition advance to keep the rear wheel slipping at just the perfect amount. Kawasaki claims that S-KTRC works and thinks faster than other traction control systems, which makes it operate smoother, thus cutting down on harsh interventions and excessive slip. This keeps the rider confident and helps to exploit every last bit of grip available.
The system takes a similar approach to wheelies, permitting a controlled degree of power wheelie out of a corner (again in the name of maximum acceleration), but intervening when the front wheel seems to be coming up too sharply. It's 3-mode adjustable to suit your riding conditions and size of cojones.
Likewise, the Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) takes advantage of super-fine sensor readings to provide what the company believes is the fastest-thinking ABS system in the motorcycle world. With speed comes the ability to make much finer adjustments to braking pressure, avoiding the suspension-hammering lock-release-lock-release action of the typical ABS system to provide much smoother stopping. That lack of locking and grabbing should also help keep the rear wheel down under hard braking, as there's less pitching around on the edge of traction than with other systems. But Kawasaki isn't selling this as a safety feature - nope, it's there to get you to maximum braking power and keep you there as securely as possible so that – you guessed it – you can go faster.
Traction control is standard, ABS will be optional.
Suspension and Braking
You name it, it's there. Big Piston Forks, radial brake calipers and master cylinders (although Kawasaki has stopped short of equipping the ZX-10R with monobloc calipers), fully adjustable Showa shock… although it's worth nothing that the shock has been tipped over on its side and mounted horizontally.
This is designed to help centralize mass, as well as to alter the suspension action rate in different parts of the stroke for improved roadholding. It also clears a bigger channel behind the engine for cooling airflow.
Dashboard Gadgetry
This is a completely new instrument panel, and it looks very cool. For starters, there's a multicoloured LED-backlit tacho bar that can be set to flash as a shift indicator. Then there's a dual-mode main readout, which can be set to road or race mode, with lap timer, gear position indicator, clock, speedo and all the usual suspects, plus a nod to environmentally friendly riding with the Economical Riding Indicator that rewards you for making fuel-efficient choices with the throttle and gear levers. It's a thoughtful touch, but running down the list of Kawasaki riders I know, I doubt it will make much of a difference to Kwaka fans' riding habits.
There's more than enough photos in the gallery for you to make up your own mind about the looks of this new big daddy Ninja. But it's a clear departure from the previous model, and from what the rest of the Japanese crowd are doing. Heavily forward-biased, hunched over and angular, the ZX-10R is coming off the blocks with a distinctive appearance that gives more than a little hint about its evil intentions. Stealth ride this is not, especially in that famous, evil lime green.
There's a huge difference between a roadbike and a superbike race machine, for sure, but this does indeed look like a revolutionary new Kawasaki. Vaulting 10 horsepower clear of the BMW S1000RR is no small statement, the electronics package is fascinating and the overall package looks great – but more importantly, it's the first time in a lot of years that Kawasaki doesn't look like it's playing catch-up.
Chris Vermeulen and a horde of rabid Kawasaki lovers will be pinning high hopes on this machine - and wouldn't it be an amazing story if this one two-wheeled berserker could turn Team Green's racing fortunes around? We caClick Here!n only hope.

Citroën to build Metropolis concept flagship

citroen metropolis concept

The beauty of an automaker entering a completely new market like China is the ability to completely redefine what the brand stands for to local buyers. In the case of France's Citroën, they're going decidedly upmarket, but instead of taking baby steps like turning its C3 econo-hatch into the DS3 premium hatch, the French automaker can start completely from scratch.

According to reports from Europe and China, parent company PSA/Peugeot-Citroën is planning on jump-starting its Asian operations by building a production version of its Metropolis concept, the first design carried out at the company's Shanghai-based design team. Unveiled there in May, the Metropolis stands for the Double Chevron's vision of what the marque could be to upscale Chinese buyers.

James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 sells for $4.6 million

aston martin db5

At least one lucky bidder has reason to celebrate today after managing to win a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that was famously used in two classic James Bond movies, Goldfinger and Thunderball.

Harry Yeaggy's winning bid of $4.6 million, which includes 12 percent in auction fees for RM, will see the car that Sean Connery famously piloted make the trek all the way from London to Ohio, U.S.A. Proceeds from the sale will benefit former owner Jerry Lee's eponymous charity.

Apparently, the car is fully roadworthy in the UK, even with its dual machine guns behind the driving lights, revolving license plates, ejector seat, rear blast shield, slicer wheel caps and console-activated oil slicks. Somehow, we imagine Yeaggy won't have nearly as much use for those Q-special features as Bond did.

Honda, Toyota tops consumer reports

Honda Civic

While GM had the biggest improvement — 83% of its vehicles are now considered average or better, which is up from 50% last year — in Consumer Reports’ Predicted Reliability Survey, Honda and Toyota are still the major automakers atop the list. The survey is an annual gauge of how well automakers are progressing in terms of vehicle quality. The metrics may seem strange, but the large sampling size of current owners figures into how CR predicts future reliability.

Tiny Toyota subdivision Scion sits at No. 1 with just three models, and luxury sports car maker Porsche, which is at No. 2, doesn’t really factor into most car shoppers’ consideration set. At Nos. 3 and 4 respectively, Acura and Honda are the real top dogs.

2011 Subaru Forester

Subaru has released official details on what we will be seeing in the 2011 Forester. The company had previously announced that the new 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder engine will find its way under the CUV's hood, as will the same turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder found in the current XT. Speaking of the XT, Subaru will now offer the range-topping Forester in XT Premium and XT Touring guises, with Touring trim replacing Limited as the top of the line. That brings along goodies like self-adjusting HID headlights, dual-zone climate control and a backup camera.

Meanwhile, Subaru has packed in a few more goodies on nearly every trim level. Bluetooth hands-free calling and a one-touch up/down driver's window comes standard on every Forester with the exception of the very base model. In addition, it looks like both the 2.5X Premium and 2.5XT Premium will boast a new audio system complete with six speakers, USB and AUX inputs, as well as iPod and Satellite radio capability.

2011 Cadillac STS

2011 cadillac sts

For 2011, the Cadillac STS doesn’t see as many updates as much as it sees a prominent deletion. This year, the 320-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 has been discontinued. The move makes sense, considering the powertrain provided little extra oomph compared with its modern V-6 counterpart and had far worse fuel economy (15/24 mpg city/highway).

Now, the only available powertrain is a 302-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission in either rear- or all-wheel drive.The V-6 gets 18/27 mpg with either rear- or all-wheel drive.

Chevy working on Aveo-based crossover

chevrolet aveo

According to the blokes over at Autocar, Chevrolet's Korean arm is furiously working on turning the latest Aveo into a five-door, five-passenger crossover. This CUV version of Chevy's subcompact, which just recently began production in Seoul, South Korea with sales slated for early 2011, will reportedly sport a stretched version of the platform and will be offered in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive flavors.

Upscale interior bits and pieces are apparently being borrowed from the European Opel parts bin, which should mean good things for the Gamma II-based cute 'ute. Other higher-end specs include a next-gen digital display grafted into the dash that is apparently going to filter across the rest of the Chevrolet lineup.

In related news, the British magazine is also reporting that the four-door sedan version of the new Aveo is likely to be shown off at the next Detroit Auto Show in January. Will a crossover join in on the Aveo's time in the spotlight? We'll be there in DSLRs in tow either way.

Saab unveils new SUV model

Saab has revealed the new 9-4X – the car that marks the manufacturer's first entry into the burgeoning crossover segment.
The 9-4X will make its debut at the Los Angeles motor show next month; its presence at the US event marks the importance of the model's position in the domestic SUV market.

The car is an evolution of the concept Saab unveiled two years ago at the Detroit motor show. It bears all the hallmarks of the manufacturer's current design language, and its size should pitch it neatly between the 9-3X and the new 9-5 saloon.
The 9-4X shares its platform with the Cadillac SRX and will be built at GM's production facility in Mexico. The car will be offered with the same twin-turbo 2.8-litre V6 engine that's currently found in the top-spec 9-5, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox and Saab's XWD all-wheel drive system.

The manufacturer is promising car-like driving dynamics from the 9-4X, which is equipped with the DriveSense adaptive chassis that uses real time damping control to adapt to road conditions.
Inside the car is a five-seater – no third row for the kids – and includes the usual tributes to Saab's unique heritage, including a wraparound, driver-focused dash and a rolling 'aircraft attitude' meter as a speed read-out.
Standard kit should include cruise control, dual-zone climate control, electric handbrake, 20-inch turbine alloy wheels, parking sensors and Saab's infotainment navigation system.
The 9-4X is due to go on sale in the US next May, but won't make it to UK showrooms until after the summer.

2011 BMW X1 SUV

2011 BMW X1 SUV
BMW X1 tops the Audi Q5 as best selling premium SUV in the European market. The entry-level X1 has been equally criticized and praised by journalists, some even called it rubbish, but the unit sales confirm once again the demographic market BMW has gone after: younger crowd, full of energy, people that enjoy outdoor activities, but drive in urban environment as well, and also, eco-conscious.
According to Automotive News, a combination of these factors has led to a high demand. Through July, BMW has sold 55,550 X1s. Since its market launch in late-October 2009, more than 64,049 X1s have been sold, the company said.
With the launch of the X1, BMW has opened a new premium small SUV segment. First rivals are scheduled to appear in 2011 when Audi will unveil their Q3 model, followed shortly by Saab and its 9-4x. The other premium automakers, Mercedes-Benz and Infiniti, are also expected to launch similar models in the near future.
2010 BMW X1
The X1 currently costs at least 9,000 euros less than the other premium SUVs and will soon go head-to-head with the MINI Countryman, a vehicle with similar capabilities and expected to be priced in the same range.
At BMW, the X1 currently ranks fourth overall in the brand’s European sales after the 3, 1 and 5 Series models. Worldwide, the X1 is BMW’s No. 5-selling model, a ranking that should improve once U.S. sales start next year.
As BMW’s head of sales, Ian Robertson, mentioned as well, many customers have transitioned from the first generation BMW X3 which is being replaced by the end of this year.
Furthermore, BMW is seeing many customers coming from other non-premium brands, including Ford, VW and even Lancia.

In the U.S., BMW is expected to initially launch two models, X1 xDrvei28i and the twin-scroll turbocharged xDrvei35i.

1. BMW X1 44,067

Rossin-Bertin Vorax: the V10-Powered Supercar from BMW

Rossin Bertin Vorax

Brazil's latest supercar, the Rossin-Bertin Vorax will make its debut at the Sao Paulo Auto Show later this month. Looking a tad like the result of an unfortunate accident between a Nissan Juke and a Mazda RX-8, the Vorax features a carbon fibre body and aluminium chassis. According to its makers, it will weigh in at just 1,300 kg (2,866 lbs) and be powered by the same (albeit tuned) 5.0-liter V10 from the BMW M5.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Of all the phrases in the English language, few are likely to as accurately describe what it's like to drop the hammer on the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport as "absolutely crackers." That is if you're trying to keep things PG, at least. The crew from Autocar managed to beg, borrow and steal their way into the cockpit of what is perhaps our era's pinnacle of production automotive engineering for a quick blast through the European countryside. Fortunately enough for all of you, they were also kind enough to video the whole shebang.

Porsche Cayenne 902 Coupe

It was announced today that the grand unveiling of the new 3 door Cayenne 902 Coupe and its somewhat less intriguing 5 door brethren from UK-based tuning house Merdad, which we first told you about in June, will take place at the MPH The Prestige & Performance Motor Show in November.

Both the 3-door and 5-door variants are based off the second-generation Porsche Cayenne SUV and come with a variety of styling and performance upgrades with output ranging between 550 and 750-horsepower, depending on the level of tune. The most potent version is said to sprint from 0 to 60mph (96km/h) in 4.4 seconds. Full details on the specifications and extras are to be released at the MPH Show.
The British tuning firm responsible for the Cayenne Coupe is owned by a man who we only get to know by the name (or surname) "Merdad". On the company's website it is noted that he previously worked with Uwe Gemballa for five years before opening his own tuning shop.
Here's what founder and creator Merdad stated about the tuned Cayenne SUVs: "We are very proud that this creation has brought together many British engineers and designers who have contributed to bringing this fantastic beast to the table."
"We now feel the time is right to unveil the Merdad Cayenne 902 Coupe and the Merdad 5 door to the world at MPH and are excited to see what the visitors to the show think of its unique design and unbelievable power will truly set the show and the rest of the world alight," he added.
As always, there are two MPH shows, with the first featuring Top Gear Live to take place at Earls Court from November 4-7th and second one at the NEC in Birmingham between November 11-14th.

GTR r35 2012 r36

This photo, snapped at the Nurburgring show that Nissan has made some changes to its hero GT-R for 2012. There’s been some revision to the front, with the grille now looking more horizontal. And around the back they’ve restyled the bumper and diffuser and reshaped the flares behind the wheels. It’s likely the cosmetic changes will be applied to both the Spec-M and the hotter-handling Spec-V variants. Nissan has already hinted last year that the Spec-M interior will be softened and luxed-up a little to give it a more premium feel. But the engine is tipped to stay with the current outputs of 353kW of power and 590Nm of torque. There’s no official word on when the new Nissan GT-R will be unveiled, but there’s money on it being at Paris motor show in October.

Paling Mahal~Ducati bikerz

It is now the most powerful production motorcycle in the world - more powerful than Ducati’s Desmosedici RR, Suzuki’s Hayabusa or even Kawasaki’s ZZR1400.
 Manufactured by the small Rimini-based Italian company Vyrus - which is best known for producing the Bimota Tesi 2D, the new bike - known as the Vyrus 987 C3 4VV is powered by a 211 bhp supercharged Ducati engine.
 It weighs just 158 kg - just 10 kg heavier than an average Moto GP bike from the last season and costs a staggering EUR 65,000 (RM305,000).
 Production is limited and highly exclusive. The bike will be sold in four variants.
 The 4VV is the lightest and most powerful of them all, and the holder of the fastest production bike title.

The base model 984 C3 2V comes with a 100 bhp two valve 1000DS air-cooled Ducati engine, and weighs in at 150 kg.
Next up the model line is the 985 C3 4V, which uses a 155 bhp 999R water-cooled Testastretta Ducati engine sells for EUR 50,000 (RM235,000).
Just below the top of the line 4VV is the 155 kg 987 C3 4V which sells for EUR 55,000 (RM258,000) and borrows a 1198cc 1098R engine from Ducati which produces 184 bhp and is the same engine used in the 4VV.
With our taxes, this bike will probably cost the same as an average sized bungalow in Malaysia.
However, there is bound to be a few riders who can afford it, so maybe we'll get to see it on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.

BMW F800R Review

The moment you look at the F800R, you will immediately recognise it's resemblence with the much bigger K1300R.
Both bikes carry the latest mutation of BMW's evolving DNA strain. But while the resemblences are uncanny, underneath the skin, both species of naked bikes diverge drastically. The F800R is powered by a parallel-twin which is tuned to feel like a boxer, and displaces as it's name suggests - 800cc.
The K1300R on the other hand is powered by a phenomenally powerful in-line four with 1300cc.
While the F800R is a lot less powerful, it is by no means any less fun.

For starters, it has sweet, light handling. Although it's 800cc, it feels nimble - almost like Kawasaki's Er-6n.
With a dry weight of 184kg, it is just a few kilos heavier than the Kawasaki.
Looking at the bike, you can see that BMW did make a few exceptions to keep the bike's cost down. For example, the front end is a conventional fork. The equipment level is basic, but the brakes and suspension are of brilliant quality.
 Despite a totally different layout compared to the boxer engined bikes, the bike imititates it's sound at idle and low revs.

 Rev the engine higher though, and the engine spools up eagerly with a growl. The engine provides loads of useful torque at medium revs. The abundance of torque means you don't have to work the gears so frequently, making the bike a joy to ride.
 In town the bike is light enough to weave through traffic like a kapcai. Out on the highway, it is powerful enough to  cruise with the big boys. Therein lies the attraction of the F800r. Just like the F800 GS, it is a well balanced machine, powerful enough for long distance trips, but at the same time - not too heavy and cumbersome.

All out speed is not the F800Rs strong point, but if you gun the engine to the redline in sixth gear, you still get more than 200kmh on the clock.
 The bike was in it's element when I rode it to Kuala Selangor. Exiting the North-South Highway, I proceeded to make short work of the twisty trunk roads.
 The bike I was riding on was in Alpine White, but it still attracted a lot of admiring glances from motorists as well as the locals.
 The bike also comes in a radical shade of orange known as Flame Orange.

There is also another option known as White Aluminum Metallic.
 If you are used to riding BMW bikes, you will also notice that the F800R no longer uses the right-turn-switch on right handlebar and left-turn-switch on left handlebar layout.
 Instead the bike has conventional switchgear - which is a shame really. I always thought BMW had better common sense when they were the only ones to use these signal switches. They were really much easier to operate when wearing thick leather gloves.
