    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!

    THINK launches a 2+2 electric car and some thoughts about really small cars

    Europe is a place where electric cars (EVs) seem very viable for people to own. The governments and manufacturers over there are willing to come up or share a budget to install charging stations and the people over there are also willing to use it for short commutes and take public transport for longer trips. As such, EVs can flourish (a little) and cars by the Oslo based company THINK can sell their EVs in decent numbers. THINK must be doing well as they have introduced a 2+2 version of their Think City EV.   The car is already available for sale in Europe and everything is carried over from the smaller (really small) two seat model. The car gets a 34kW electric motor that somehow enables it to cruise at 110km/h and its batteries ensure that it has a range of 100km on a full charge. It takes 8 hours for a 100% charge on a lithium battery and on a cheaper code

    Go Pro releases behind-the-scene videos of the stunts done in Furious 7

    Here's another behind-the-scenes video from the 7th installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, courtesy of Go Pro's line of HERO cameras. All shot using these niffy little cameras, one can see that the producers have probably outpeformed themselves again in terms of car-related stunts and explosions.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=178&v=l-_UDxC2ot8

    Mercedes Benz previews the new SLK ahead of its official preview

    Mercedes Benz has released official photographs of their new baby convertible, the SLK ahead of its official launch at Mercedes' 125th anniversary celebrations in Stuttgart later this month and ahead of its preview at the upcoming Geneva motor Show. Yup, Mercedes Benz is already 125 years old and the SLK, a traditional two seater roadster is still rear wheel drive, still sports its metal folding roof and like all newly launched Mercedes Benzes, promises a steady improvement of its handling over the older version.   It also looks more like a baby Mercedes SL, as it has more of the SL's styling cues as well as the new nose first seen in the newly launched CLS. It looks suitably aggressive, much more than the previous SLK, which in its base SLK200 spec looked more suitable for a hairdresser than anyone else.   The new SLK will also offer a diesel engine, the first in the SLK line-up. It sports a 2.1liter twin turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that makes 204bhp. And while torque figures aren't available as yet, I believe a twin turbocharged modern diesel engine should produce over 350 plus Nm of torque on a bad day.   The usual turbocharged entry level 1.8liter is still around and will come in the 184bhp and the 204bhp forms for the SLK200 and the SLK250 respectively. Aside from the 7 speed G-tronic gearbox, the SLK200 will have a 6speed manual option. It will do 100km/h from a standstill in about 7seconds flat.   The top engine for the launch line-up would be the 3.5liter V6 in the SLK350. It is designed to produce 306bhp and gets to 100km/h in 5.6seconds as well as giving a combined fuel consumption figure of 39.8mpg, pretty good for a high capacity engine (in a small car). It also gets the stop-start engine feature to achieve the afore-mentioned fuel consumption figure.   What's new for the SLK is that the folding hard top can be had with a choice of the standard aluminium top with either fixed tint glass or an electro-magnetic variable tint glass that reacts to the level of sunlight. Aside from the above, expect an AMG tuned version later in the year. It will use a newly designed normally aspirated version of AMG
