Alfa Romeo 4C Production version Unveiled


Alfa Romeo released new pictures of the production version of the 4C Concept currently displayed at the Geneva Motor Show. The production 4C will be powered by a 1.75-Liter inline four engine producing 240 Hp. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Alfa 4C might be eclipsed in terms of power by half of the cars available at the Geneva Motor Show but the thing is, it weight just 952 Kg (2,100 pounds) thanks to a light weight body and a carbon fiber monocoque. The result is a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.5 seconds and a (limited) top speed of 250 Km/h (155 mph).

Let's go back to the car that is actually displayed in Geneva. It is called the "4C launch edition" and it's pretty similar to the regular version except that it features some visual including a more sophisticated color scheme, full LED headlights and 19 inch allow wheels at the back. The 4C launch edition will be limited to only 1,000 units and will cost nearly €60k. More pictures of the production version in the gallery below.


2013 Audi RS5 DTM Revealed at Geneva



Audi revealed its new RS5 based DTM racer, which looks pretty much like last year's car except for the hugely revised aero package. The RS5 DTM is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 producing 500 Hp. The car will make its race track debut on April 26th at the DTM testing sessions. This year's list of destinations for the Championship in addition to Germany include Austria, Great Britain, Netherlands and Russia.

This year, Audi will have to face last year's new comer BMW, who in their first attempt after 18 years of absense, took the championship from Audi and Mercedes...

Lamborghini Strikes Back with the Aventador J Roadster Dream Machine


Last week, Ferrari stole the lights from all other dream car makers by unveiling its 599 GTB successor, the F12 Berlinetta. But now Lamborghini strikes back to remind us that they are still there and that they are unbelievably good at making supercars. So they came up with something really special: a roofless Aventador, SLR Stirling Moss-style. And we have to admit that the result is just astonishing! The car keeps its 700 Hp 6.5-Liter V12 and is expected to be lighter due to the absence of the roof, the windshield, the air conditioning system and of the navigation system. Lamborghini has insisted that this is not a showcar and that it's truly for sale, in a very limited number i guess...

Well thanks Lambo for giving us something to dream about! Now we have to see this beast on a race track someday! More high res pictures in the gallery below. And there's more to come from the Geneva Motor Show today, so stay tuned.
