There were several talks regarding the production of the GTbyCitroen Concept but today it was officially confirmed: the supercar will be built! According to our sources, the concept received green light from company’s product boss Vincent Besson and will receive a price tag around €1.3 million.
Regarding the production version, this will keep most of the features showed by the concept and this includes: carbon-fiber construction and eccentric interior details. Under the hood, we will have a V8 engine manufactured by GM or Ford and capable to deliver over 500 hp. The official debut of the production version will be made in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show!
The engineers at Mercedes-Benz are working tirelessly to get the all-new E-Class cabrio ready for its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. So much so that they appear to be bringing dates along for a ride in the chop-topped mules.
These newest shots of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Convertible are the first we've seen with the cloth top stowed away, and they reveal an interesting detail: a retractable wind deflector mounted on the top of the windshield.
Like Audi, Mercedes has opted to forgo the folding hard-top treatment for the new E, allowing the automaker to retain the coupe's hard-edged style and keep the curb weight in check. When the E-Class Convertible arrives in dealerships early next year, expect a range of six- and eight-cylinder powerplants, including the range-topping E500.

RAP/HIP-HOP RECORDING ARTIST EVE TO GUEST-STAR ON “GLEE”
The Porsche Spyder, one of the most respected names in the history of sports cars, is making a comeback and there are images that demonstrate how it will look like when it gets here by 2013.Coming with the platform of the Bluesport Concept, a platform that will be share with the upcoming Audi R2, the latest compact Porsche will keep the company’s reputation for unequalled driving dynamics, although in a much lightweight, economical and less expensive form compared to all models in the recent past. The latest Spyder will sport a canvass roof and will offer the same open-air driving sensation as the Boxster, although it is just 3.99 meters in length, much smaller than the current entry-level Porsche. The car will be powered by a variant of the 200bhp 2.0 TFSI powerplant borrowed from the Volkswagen Golf GTI, which is installed behind the and, for better handling stability, between the two axles. The same powerplant will feature in a Sport variant, but it will be tuned to generate 280bhp.
Although the tuning specialist MKB is not as famous as other German tuners, it has nevertheless come up with some of the most elegant and potent upgrades in the field, particularly where Mercedes-Benz cars are concerned.
The tuner’s most current creation is patterned after the twin-turbocharged CL65 AMG Coupe although a lot of the styling and performance revision can also be utilized in any model in the CL-Class such as the basic CL500/550 model. The upgrade package is dubbed the MKB 65/12 BT and comes with a number of subtle styling revisions together with engine, wheel and tire enhancements. With MKB modifications the CL65 powerplant power yield was bumped from 517hp (385kW) in the standard model to 750hp (560kW). Top torque was also raised to 922lb-ft (1,250Nm).

The Clipse and Kanye West first listen: 'Kinda Like a Big Deal'
Out of nowhere, photos of the BMW 7 Series M-Sport Package were released onto the internet today and it’s better than we expected. If the new 7 Series was already a car close to our hearts, with the released of this new M Package, it got even closer.
The M Sport Package will be available for the 745d, a model sold in the UK market. On the outside, the car receives the usual M Package upgrades: a more aggressive front fascia with a much sportier looking bumper and design; the rear-end bumper has also been slightly redesigned and a set of wheels which will probably be available only with this package.
Moving inside, the M options seen in the other packages are present here as well, starting with the M steering wheel, M shifter and even if not shown here, M footrest. We expect to see BMW offering a Carbon Fiber trim as well.
