  1. BMW has launched the M5 Nighthawk special edition specifically for the Japan market. Only 10 units will be built. On the outside, the Nighthawk is painted in 'Frozen Black'. The 20-inch alloy wheels, grille, door handles, mirror caps and exhaust tips are finished in dark chrome. I believe this is a car that The Dark Knight (Batman) would love to drive. The leather seats and door panels and dashboard are tastefully finished with a bright Sakiru orange shade. One can also find the usual M Performance carbon trimmings in the cabin. The M5 Nighthawk is equipped with th
  2. It's no longer a secret that Hummer is no longer in production today. Yet, does it ever come across your mind what the real reason is? Well, while some may say it's because of the rather old fashioned look the model sports, we'll say that it's because the Hummer H2 is actually a disguise of some sort of an old Chevrolet Tahoe, for example. Unfortunately, the Russians didn't actually know what the Hummer was all about, at least not until this hilarious Russian video went live on the internet. Well, considering they're half the world apart, it may be understandable. However, after watching t
  3. Maserati has released a teaser image of a new model that will be released at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show which will open on 19th April. What could it be? It is widely reported that the new model under the silky blue veil is the all new Ghibli saloon, which the Italian company has been working on and has been spied testing on several occasions. The covered up model shows a long hood with a prominent grille. The large wheel arches and strong bodylines at the side are clearly evident too. If this shapely model turns out to be the Ghibli, the BMW 5 Series has got something very serious to
  4. The 2015 Mercedes S-Class coupe has been spied with lesser camouflage. The model will be the successor to the CL-Class. The name change makes it the first two-door S-Class since the W140 generation of the 1990s. The ultra-luxury coupe will not be just an S-Class with two doors removed but features its own unique styling with a lower front fascia and a sloped roof top. The S-class coupe will share its rear-wheel-drive architecture with the next-generation S-class sedan, which means substantial weight savings as well as optional all-wheel drive. All lightings will be equi

  7. [extract] When someone mentions the term 'stretched limousine', you would normally think or imagine a sedan based - stretched out model. Yet, there have been examples of a stretched Ferrari or some that were based on a Hummer. But in this case it's based on a late 1960s Pontiac Catalina station wagon.

  8. Late last year, Italian automaker Mazzanti previewed a two seater concept sports car which was known as the Evantra.

The car was targeted to be released in mid 2012. Recently, images of the production ready car were released. Its body looks pretty much like the concept but now it features a different engine. The flat six engine was replaced with a naturally aspirated 7.0-litre V8 engine which deli
  9. Sometimes in life, when you are looking for something or someone, you end up finding something else. That is quite natural as I strongly believe it has happened to many people at a point of their life. It happened to an American man who was searching for his birth mother and unexpectedly ended up with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS that has been in the family for many years. Zach S from Virginia, United States; first saw the Camaro RS/SS in 2006 when he met his birth mother in Arizona after years of searching. During the meeting, both mother and son shared many stories and pictures.

  17. Many of us know what a muscle car is. But do we really know the factors that place a certain car in the muscle car category? Initially I thought that I knew so much about muscle cars but after reading a certain book about these cars, I became more knowledgeable and some of the so called facts that I previously thought were true are actually not. And now I would like to share them with you. 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible There are many varying opinions on what qualifies as a muscle car but before I touch on that let us see what does not qualify as a muscle car.
