    DUDE? IS THAT A SUPRA?

    You've seen the meme, you know what it is, we review the new Toyota Supra! But just in case you haven't see how beautiful the new car is... ...in glorious red "Without Supra, I couldn't be master driver..." NANI!? What the hell is James up to this time!? With the Supra's 290-litre boot, it seems like James is a little afraid to get in the boot, so we put 'fun-sized' Julian in instead! Does he fit though? And more importantly, do they like the car? Or do they not? Only one way to find out! Watch the video to find out!
  2. With 113,066 units of the Mustang sold in 2018, Ford's coupe gets to keep its World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe title for the fourth straight year. Ford announced the news on the eve of its 55th anniversary that sales in Europe went up by more than 27% so far in 2019 and its market share increased by half a point for 2018 over the previous year, reaching 15.4%. Thanks to the new Bullitt variant, 75,842 units were sold in the U.S. while 2,323 Mustangs found homes in the U.K., representing an increase of 5% over 2017. According to Ford, the Mustang was sold in 146 countries in 2018 and over 500,000 sixth-generation models have been sold globally since 2015. “We broke the mould when Ford launched the Mustang 55 years ago,” said Jim Farley, Ford president of global markets. “Nothing says freedom, the wind in your hair and the joy of driving like Mustang; it’s an icon. The roar of its V8 on a spring day, there’s nothing better. No wonder it’s the most popular sports coupe in the world.”

    2019 Audi TT RS (facelift)

    Here's A First Look At The 2019 Audi TT RS Facelifthttps://carbuzz.com/news/here-s-a-first-look-at-the-2019-audi-tt-rs-facelift The copious amounts of camouflage could be deceiving. The current-generation Audi TT has been on sale in America since 2015, so it's due for a refresh to keep it relevant. To keep it fresh for a few more years, Audi is giving its popular sports car a facelift. Prototypes of the base model have been out testing for a while, but our spies recently spotted the updated hardcore Audi TT RS undergoing some hot weather testing in Europe. Copious amounts of camouflage cover the front, but we’re expecting the styling changes to be relative minor compared to the current TT RS. The grille appears to be slightly wider with new vertical vents alongside it, and the front bumper has been redesigned. The headlights also appear to be slimmer, but that could just be the camouflage deceiving us. Elsewhere, the side skirts look more pronounced than the current model. At the back, the amount of camouflage suggests there will be big changes but they will probably be just as subtle. We can see some minor tweaks to the rear spoiler, and the rear taillights also sport new graphics that make the TT RS look more modern. There could also be some small changes to the rear bumper. Chances are the interior will be updated, too. The current Audi TT's interior is already loaded with tech, but that probably won’t stop Audi updating the infotainment system. It isn’t known if the 2019 Audi TT RS facelift will receive a power boost, however. The current model is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder unit that produces 395 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the facelifted model retains this setup. In the current model, 0-62 mph takes just 3.6 seconds, with power being sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Audi is expected to reveal the TT facelift later this year, so we could see the 2019 TT RS debut at the Paris Auto Show in October before it goes on sale early next year.
  4. Toyota has revealed a radical high-riding sports coupe concept ahead of its official unveiling at the Paris motor show next week. The Japanese brand has released two images but limited details of its C-HR concept, a car that is said to preview a new compact SUV destined for production. While its sleek three-door body hints at what a jacked-up next-generation Toyota 86 could look like, the C-HR is bound to be a more conventional five-door when it eventually becomes showroom ready as a model to sit below the popular RAV4 and a rival for the likes of the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur. It has yet to confirm full details on the car's mechanical underpinnings or powertrain, but says it will feature a hybrid powerplant and introduce a new "diamond architecture" styling theme. It says the C-HR's soft overall form is contrasted by definitive crease lines "to represent the faceted surfaces of a highly-durable, precision-cut gemstone". Although Toyota says the C-HR shares the mechanics of a Prius, it hasn't yet revealed much in the way of technical details. Only three basic dimensions of the two-door vehicle are specified: a length of 4350mm, a width of 1500mm and height of 2640mm. This suggests that this future SUV will be smaller than the current Toyota RAV4.
  5. Not long ago, Japanese automakers either cancelled or stops production of their sports coupe models, mainly due to the economic crisis and shifting interests towards something else. But with the recent release of the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ and the upcoming unveiling of the next Honda NSX, interests towards Japanese performance coupes have grown strongly. And as usual, the rumour mill began churning so called news of Mitsubishi planning to release a coupe model. Before I continue, I will add a little about Mitsubishi

    Nissan is preparing an 86/BRZ rival

    Sales numbers for the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ has proven that the car is big hit with the consumers and it is not surprising that other automakers are taking notes about it. It is reported that Nissan is developing its own sports coupe to compete with Toyota and Subaru after been given the green light. This is not the first time Nissan has plans to develop a compact sports model. In 2008, Nissan was working on a 200SX/Silvia successor but the world economy at that time doesn't look too good and the idea was shelved. Now, a good question to ask is; how will the car look like? During last year's Shanghai Motor Show, Nissan unveiled a concept known as the Nissan Sport Compact Concept. It was rather small in size and it was dubbed the Nissan March on steroids. It gets a 1.6-litre turbocharged four cylinder engine that delivers 190bhp and a torque of 240Nm; most probably the same engine from the Nissan Juke. It is rumoured that the car will built on the Nissan Juke's platform and the project is known as the "Mini-Z" within the company. Since it is going to be built on the Juke's platform, the car could be either in front wheel drive or four wheel drive. If the same engine shown in the concept is chosen, then the car will have around 10 horsepower lesser than the 86/BRZ but with more torque. With Nissan planning to start production of the car in the fourth quarter of next year, expect to see a concept version of it by early next year. Photo credit: Auto Blog
  7. [extract] According to Automotive News website, several insiders have confirmed that the beautifully-sculptured Lexus LF-LC concept will "almost certainly" make it to production due to overwhelming reaction. "There has been a lot of interest from dealers and distributors," a Lexus official said. Back in January 2012, company executives said that the flashy 2+2 sports coupe was not planned for production. The exotic concept was presented at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show back in January and won the

  10. When you think of luxury, you'd think Shangri-la or Ritz Carlton. In car terms, that would probably equate to Mercedes and BMW. But with Bentley, its on a whole new level. Its the St. Regis. I recently managed to get a chance to view these two bucket loads of luxury at their official launch in Singapore at the Shangri-la hotel and boy did they ooze of class and panache. The Mulsanne, which was produced from 1982 to 1992 featured a full sized luxury sedan which was supposed to offer the unique blend of speed and agility of a Sports coupe, with the comfort of a proper Bentley. The name itself is derived from Bentley's 5 victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1924 to 1930 - The 'Mulsanne Straight' is the stretch of the racecourse where the cars reach their top speed. So speed is essential in the new Mulsanne or the car wouldn't live up to its legacy. And I'm happy to say it doesn't disappoint. Though the car is almost 5.5m long, 2.2m wide and weighs the Moon, it would still go from 0-100km/h in 5.3s and reach a top speed of about 300km/h. All this speed and power is only possible with its 6.75l V8 twin turbo with something called cam phasing and variable displacement or whatever that is, (which makes it sound faster) that produces 505bhp @ 4200rpm. But here's the real party piece. You see, a 'normal' luxury saloon car, say a BMW 5 Series with 4 doors and a big boot, would produce around 300NM of torque. But in this, it produces 1020NM of torque at 1750rpm! I wouldn't be surprised to see a blown-out tire at the garage of its owner or two distinct holes in the ground the shape of semi-circles. That is just an immense amount of torque. And the interior is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Its just too bad I didn't get to sit in one that actually moved on the road because then I could start talking about how the suspension evens out the bumps or how the engine sounds. So on the whole. the new Mulsanne definitely looks and feels like what a proper Bentley should. But what if you are the type of person who only likes to have luxury and speed, but only share it with one other person? Worry no more because the Bentley Continental Supersports is the perfect car for you. It is the most powerful, most extreme Bentley coupe ever made and it even runs on both petrol and biofuel using FlexFuel technology. It has a 6.0l W12 twin turbo engine which produces 621bhp and with 800NM of torque and 0-100 km/h is dealt with in 3.9s in a car that weighs 2.2 tons and its maximum speed is 329km/h. Quick car! And if you were there to see its brake discs, they were the size of a Nissan Latio's steering wheel.. And the Supersport scores in the looks department as well. The pristine shade of White on this body looks absolutely perfect for this car and the huge 20 inch black alloy rims announces to the world that it means business. On to the interior. The Supersports is focused on being lighter than the Continental GT so the entire cabin is littered with carbon fibre trim. On the dash and everything. It is tastefully done with a matte finish and all the switches and buttons feels bespoke to this car. And though this is the most extreme Bently ever made, it still features equipment that you see in a luxury sedan like cruise control, an in-built phone and even a space in the back for your golf bag which is well protected by a carbon fibre beam which I presume is to stop it from rolling about. The seats are relatively hard but they offer great support and it feels like a glove to the body's contours. Both of these machines are wonderful. They bring the unthinkable to reality and the level of luxury is suited for royalty. However, the thing that left a niggling feeling behind is that a Rolls Royce still is the ultimate luxury saloon in my opinion. Somehow, they just feel more special, the name and just the look of their cars would bring a sense of unparalleled royalty. The Bentleys are great cars, but I just feel that they aren't as special.
