Nissan 370Z S-TuneNissan has released official images of the NISMO 370Z S-Tune, and the photos show a much more hardcore of version of the Japanese brand's new rear-wheel-drive sports car than we saw debut at the LA Auto Show last month. Buyers will be able to choose between the full-on body kit above with a new lower chin spoiler, "extension nose piece", rocker moldings, rear valance and rear wing or a toned down version. Those larger deep dish, five-spoke aluminum wheels are also an option, as are a stainless steel exhaust system, upgraded S-Tune suspension, additional body braces and S-Tune brake pads.

Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ400 coming with 405 hp

Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ400Autocar snagged a handful of pics and some initial specs of the UK-only Mitsubishi Evolution X FX-400, and as suspected, the hotter Evo is a road-going version of the ADR Motorsport-prepared sedan that successfully campaigned this past September in the 24-Hour Britcar Championship. The turbocharged 2.0-liter 4B11 will put out approximately 405 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a new turbo, retuned ECU and center-exit exhaust. More info



Audi R8 V10 debuting in Detroit, cabrio coming in 2010

2010 Audi R8 V10While other automakers are dropping out of the Detroit Auto Show left and right, Audi is heading to Motor City with guns blazing, beginning with the 2010 Audi R8 V10. Car and Driver decided to put the rumors to rest that the updated super coupe is officially coming to Detroit, packing a 5.2-liter V10 putting out 520 hp and 398 lb.-ft. of torque. Aside from the obvious aural and performance differences, the V10-powered R8 will make use of a pair of larger dual exhaust tips rather than the V8 model's quad outlets. More info



Audi TT-RS headed to Geneva Motor Show

Audi TT-RSAudi-philes have even more reason to rejoice now that news comes in of an imminent TT-RS launch next March at the Geneva Motor Show. The standard-fare TT offers plenty of punch, and the TT-S spices things up a bit with a high-pressure version of Audi/VW's 2.0L forced-induction four banger. Sometimes, way too much is, ya know... just enough, and for speed freaks, Audi has apparently green-lighted an ultra-hot version as well. More info



Jaguar XF Coupe breaks cover

Jaguar XF CoupeAccording to Auto Express, what you see here is slated to hit showrooms in 2010 and will go up against such luxury and performance stalwarts as the Mercedes-Benz C Class Coupe, BMW's 3 Series Coupe and the Audi A5. It's definitely got the looks to compete on equal footing, with the trendy high belt-line and minimal glass surface area. Where the XF sedan features slinky lines, this XF bulges in an exaggerated show of power, making the new Coupe a much more aggressive design overall. More info


Porsche Panamera finally arrives

Porsche PanameraAfter what seems to be about the last three decades of seeing spy photos of Porsche's first four-door super sedan, the Panamera, the car is now officially revealed. Porsche is calling this a four-door grand touring sports car rather than a coupe or sedan. Power for the Panamera will come from a range of V6 and V8 engines that will likely mirror the Cayenne lineup. The engines will run from a paltry 300 horsepower up to the 500-hp unit from the Cayenne Turbo. More info & Pictures

2010 Ford Mustang

2010 Ford MustangThe 2010 'Stang is at once the same and different. Like the 2005-09 model, it's immediately recognizable as Ford famous pony car. If anything, it looks even more like a late '60s Mustang thanks to some additional curvature in its lines, especially along the belt-line. At the same time, it also looks more contemporary. The designers have improved the aerodynamics and reworked many of the design details. What may be even more important for drivers of the Mustang is an all-new interior that finally dispenses with cheap, hard plastics and looks like it was designed in this century, but more on that in a bit.

DC Designs creates another Roller atrocity

DC Designs Roller atrocityDilip Chhabria unveiled the DC Ambierod at the 2008 New Delhi Auto Expo. The coupe was supposedly inspired by the Hindustan Ambassador, on which the Ambierod is based, and Chhabria wanted to create the Indian equivalent of the Holden Efijy concept from 2005. In short, he failed – hardly a surprise considering the wannabe Roller/350Z and the $375,000 Cayenne coupe that DC concocted in previous years.. More info

Nissan 370Z slips out ahead of early unveilings

Nissan 370ZNissan is planning not one, but two, separate events to reveal the new Nissan 370Z to a select group of gearheads ahead of its unveiling next week at the LA Auto Show. But Nissan's worst-kept secret keeps leaking out. So in addition to a handful of teasers, a few game-play screen caps and a trio of spy shots, GTRWorld has seven pics of Nissan's newest Z car out in the open. While the new head- and tail-lamp treatments have garnered the most attention, a few elements haven't been in clear view until now. More info



Audi R4 back on the table?

Audi R4Apparently the new mid-engined R4 is a go. It will occupy a slot in the Audi lineup above the TT and below the R8, with prices starting around £35,000. Like the R8 it will be a two-seater only, available as either a coupe or roadster. AutoExpress even has an image of the car showing a strong familial resemblance to the big-brother R8. To distinguish it from its Porsche siblings, the Audi is said to be getting Quattro AWD and aluminum construction.Powerplants should include the full range of TFSI engines, from the 2.0L turbo, all the way up to the new supercharged and turbocharged 335-hp 2.5L five-cylinder from the TT RS.

Nissan GT-R named Car of the Year by Automobile Mag

Nissan GT-R named CarNissan has hit a major home run with its latest Skyline, known as the GT-R here in the States. In fact, the car was knocked so far out of the park that it seems an obvious choice for anyone's Car of the Year. Nissan's latest supercar boasts enough performance to take on the best from the rest of the world regardless of price, making it an amazing value despite costing upwards of $80,000. As such, the new GT-R has been awarded the Car of the Year trophy from Automobile Mag. Other winners of Automobile's year-end awards include Audi's stunning A5 coupe, which takes the award for Design of the Year. More info


Bolwell Nagari supercar priced under $200k Australian

Bolwell Nagari supercarAustralia is about to produce a new lightweight supercar that's set to debut at a pretty compelling price point. The car is a revival of the Nagari, which was produced in Oz back in the '60s and '70s. All of the usual supercar components are present and accounted for, including the abundant use of carbon fiber, twin Recaro seats and a Momo steering wheel with a flappy-paddle gearbox, as the Brits would say. That transmission is hooked up to a Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter V6 engine mounted amidships that powers the rear wheels. More info

Aston One-77: short, wide and fast, with only 5 coming to U.S.

Aston One-77Despite a slowing economy, Aston Martin is not shying away from tackling some high-priced territory. Its Rapide four-door coupe is on the way, the as-yet un-named convertible DBS is due imminently, development of the V12 Vantage continues, and it's re-launching the Lagonda marque with some new luxury machinery. All the while the next DB9 and Vantage are tipped to go up-market, but not before the ultra-premium One-77 lands in the hands of a few very fortunate customers.

First real world pics of Nissan 370Z surface

Nissan 370ZAfter a year of renderings, rumors and spy shots, Nissan finally provided an official glimpse of the new 370Z. Unfortunately, the only images released were a few computer-generated stills and a handful of screen captures from the next Need for Speed game. Now, we've gotten our hands on the first live pics of the Nissan 370Z, captured at an undisclosed event ahead of its reveal at the LA Auto Show later this month. While the CG images give us a general idea of the shapes employed on the new Z, it's not until you lay eyes on a few live shots (or better yet, see it in person) to let the details sink in.

GM bringing Pontiac G8 ST concept

Pontiac G8 ST conceptPontiac's G8 ST will likely not be used much for hauling joists and sonotubes, and General Motors took note of that before preparing one for SEMA. Instead, the concept has been dolled up with goodies that may make it to the GM Accessories catalog once the G8 ST goes on sale in late 2009. The most visible enhancements are on the outside. The paint is called Liquid Hot, and custom 20-inch wheels handsomely stuff the fenders. Making the car look more menacing is a reduced ride height, too. More info



Toyota Venza priced from $25,975

Toyota VenzaIt's been almost a year since Toyota debuted its new Venza crossover at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, and we've heard nary a peep since. With the launch of the V6 model only a month away, though, we've finally received pricing info. The rather ungainly looking Venza will start at $25,975 with Toyota's new 2.7L four-cylinder engine and front-wheel-drive, and top out at $29,250 for the 3.5L V6 model with AWD. This makes the Venza's pricing very close to its competition from Nissan and Ford, though Toyota's model is the only one available with a four-cylinder engine. More info


Nissan working on 600 hp GT-R LM

Nissan 600 hp GT-R LMRumors have been circulating for almost a year that Nissan plans to campaign the GT-R in several different series outside of SuperGT, including the Grand Am championship and the 24 Hours of LeMans.

Hyundai releases tech specs on 2010 Genesis Coupe

2010 Genesis CoupeHyundai's headline figure for the 2.0-liter turbo-equipped Genesis coupe is 30 mpg. While we can't fault Hyundai for trying to hype the two-door's fuel efficiency, for us, there are more important numbers to look at. Primarily power and weight. The 310 hp, 3.8-liter V6 model equipped with either a six-speed manual or auto 'box tips the scales at 3,402 pounds, and will be available in Grand Touring and Track models.T he GT variant includes a power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front thrones, navigation system, 360-watt stereo with 10 speakers, Smart Key, push-button start, Xenon HIDs, HomeLink with compass, heated mirrors, a back-up warning system and sunroof.

Next Ferrari F430 will use a turbocharged V8

Next Ferrari F430Not many people would have predicted that the Ferrari Enzo would be the guideline for the whole Ferrari line, but it seems the aerodynamic wedge shape will find its way onto the replacement for the F430. Internally known as the F142, the next Ferrari will likely borrow styling cues from the Mille Chili concept and should be revealed in late 2009 or early 2010. The F142 will be lighter than the F430 Scuderia (around 2750 lbs.) and will be powered by a mid-engined turbocharged V8 engine, with small displacement. More info & Pictures
