BMW 1 Series Coupe Caught Cold!

BMW are currently testing what seems to be a 1 series Cabriolet.....if you take a closer look you will find a hardtop and not a soft top.
Dubbed as the 2 Series this coupe will be an alternative to the regular BMW 1 Series coupe.
There are a few diffences between the two, this prototype will have horizontal lights witch could be placed on the bootlid. Another is the roofline and the way the rear end is shaped. The squared off rear end on this prototype should give more luggage space than the regular 1 Series Coupe and the roofline seems straighter than normal almost making it look like a sedan.

Winter Testing For Mercedes GLK

We brought you the first pictures of the pre-production prototype of Mercedes GLK which is scheduled for a 2008 released.
For the first time we can exclusively reveal the engines, drive tarrains and pirces.
The entry-level option is a 2.1-litre diesel with 2wd and 205bhp, and there are a further three petrol engines and a V6 diesel on the spec list. Among these is a hefty 400bhp-plus V8, which should make for some interesting trips to the school gates and petrol station, if nothing else.
The full range is:
• GLK 280
• GLK 350
• GLK 63 AMG
• GLK 220 CDI
• GLK 320 CDI
Drive Tarrains:
2WD will be offered on the base model but the 4WD will be offered throughout the range.
For the basic 2008 Mercedes GLK will set you back at £28,500 with prices rising around £40,000 for the AMG model. The GLK will be taking on small luxury SUV's like the Land Rover Freelander, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Porsche Compact SUV etc

2008 Mercedes C-Class Estate Undisguised!

Seen here barely clothed in camouflage for the first time is the all-new Mercedes C-Class wagon.
The sedan version of the C-Class will be introduced next month at the Geneva Motor Show, but we don't expect the wagon to be shown for another six months or so, possibly at the Frankfurt auto show.

This test car was part of a larger group that we caught just days ago in the northern part of Sweden. Like the upcoming sedan, buyers will have the option between the four-cylinder C180 (156 hp, supercharged) or C200 (184 hp, supercharged), and the six-cylinder C230 (204 hp), C280 (231 hp), or C350 (272 hp). Diesel enthusiasts in some markets will have the choice between the C200 CDI (136 hp), C220 CDI (170 hp), or C320 (V-6, 224 hp).
