While it is not clear whether this is the true final production model or a custom built Civic, we are already loving that huge wing which also incorporates the stunning taillamps.

    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!

    Volvo to abandon its 5 and 6 cylinder engines.

    Volvo has officially confirmed that its future vehicles will have no more than four-cylinders. The Swedish automaker hinted earlier this year that it was considering abandon its current five- and six-cylinder powerplants in the name of fuel efficiency.   Volvo has already axed its V8 engine, with its five- and six-cylinder engines the next to face the chopping block. Volvo says it will complete the shift to three- and four-cylinder engines within 10 years.

    BMW 3 Series gets a new challenger - from Jaguar

    Jaguar's plan to make a compact sports sedan is on track for a global launch in 2015. The automaker recently released a short video, offering viewers a glimpse of the new XE sedan.   http://dai.ly/x1ewij3 The new XE will go head on with the BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS, as well as other worthy contenders in the compact sedan segment when it goes on sale in 2015. It also promises to be the most technologically advanced, featuring a lightweight aluminium construction as demonstrated on the C-X17 concept, as well as a new range of 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel powerplants.
