The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG standard features include the new drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST, the unique anticipatory occupant protection system PRE-SAFE, BAS PLUS, seven airbags and crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints.





Audi S8 Wallpapers


The Audi S8 quattro is a high-performance version of the German luxury automaker Audi's flagship car, the full-size Audi A8. The S8 is produced at Audi's Neckarsulm 'aluminium plant', and it was introduced in September 1994. Like the A8, the S8 is only available as a four-door saloon/sedan, and both generations have been constructed from an all-aluminium monocoque, dubbed the "Audi Space Frame" (ASF), the S8 using the standard wheelbase platform, and is not available in the long-wheelbase of the A8L.

The S8, like all Audi "S" models, is fitted as standard with Audi's trademark quattro four-wheel drive (4WD), with the S8 using the Torsen-based permanent 4WD system.

The car tuning firm from Germany, Mariani have released a power and aerodynamic package for the Audi S8 V10 recently. The V10 Audi S8 engine tuning boosted the total output from 450 hp to 501 hp, an increase of 51 hp for a simple modification. Also the Mariani Audi S8 V10 comes lowered by 55-60 mm, and as you can see it doesn’t look like a car that can be daily driven. It has a stiffer chassis with the suspension upgrades, and an aftermarket exhaust system was installed that allows more flow. The prices for these upgrades have not yet been released, however there are a few more parts available.

Mariani installed a larger brake kit with red calipers on all fours, a new blacked out grille, and custom wheels. The Audi S8 V10 sits on 19 inch aftermarket wheels painted white or any color to match the car, and I must say it does look clean. We will let you know when more information about this Audi is released

BMW 7-series Pictures


The 2011 BMW 760Li sedan comes with BMW 7 Series V12 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. The new V12 engine develops 535 horsepower at an engine speed of 5,250 rpm, with maximum torque of 550 lb-ft from just 1,500 rpm.

Combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission, this BMW V12 offers unparalleled driving refinement and premium driving dynamics through its ability to convert seemingly unlimited power reserves into action with amazing responsiveness.
The BMW 760Li Sedan features self-leveling air suspension at the rear. Standard Integral Active Steering offers speed-related adjustment of the steering angle on the front and rear wheels. With Integral Active Steering, the car’s passenger comfort reaches an even higher level when changing lanes at high speeds thanks to reduced lateral forces.

In addition to these technologies, the 2011 BMW 760Li Sedan features self-leveling air suspension at the rear. Standard Integral Active Steering offers speed-related adjustment of the steering angle on the front and rear wheels.
For the exterior, the 2011 BMW 760Li Sedan features the kidney grille for the radiator boasts an extra-wide chrome frame in slightly concave design as well as bars extending powerfully to the front. From the side, exclusive 19-inch light-alloy wheels as well as the V12 model designation on the chrome-plated gills with their integrated side direction indicators at the transition point between the front fenders and the doors likewise serve to identify the BMW 760Li Sedan.





Honda CR-V Wallpapers


The Honda CR-V is a compact crossover SUV manufactured by the Japanese company Honda since 1995. It was loosely derived from the Honda Civic to satisfy a public demand for a sport-utility vehicle from Honda. There are discrepancies as to what "CR-V" stands for, with Honda sources in different markets citing different meanings. The most common meaning being "Civic Recreation Vehicle" since the is built on the Honda Civic Platform. Though Honda sales literature in UK reportedly makes references to "Compact Recreational Vehicle", other Honda references (including the official Honda Japan CR-V Fact Boo and Honda Worldwide) cite "Comfortable Runabout Vehicle". It is produced in both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive, although in many markets such as Australia and the United Kingdom, only front wheel drive is offered.

Honda produces the CR-V in Japan and the United Kingdom for worldwide markets, and as of 2007, North American CR-Vs are produced in East Liberty, Ohio. The CR-V is produced in Wuhan for the Chinese market by the Dongfeng Honda Automobile Company, a joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Corporation. Starting in fall 2007, North American CR-Vs will also be produced in Jalisco, Mexico in addition to Britain, Japan and the US due to high demand. Honda executives considered making the CR-V as one of the first vehicles to be produced at Honda's new facility currently finishing construction in Greensburg, Indiana that opened in fall 2008; however, the facility will initially exclusively produce the Civic, which may free up space in East Liberty for CR-V production from the 2009 model year onward. Elsewhere, the CR-V is Honda's smallest SUV other than the related Element sold in Canada and the United States, and the HR-V sold in Europe. In size, the CR-V slots between the Element and Pilot.

Fiat 500 Pictures


The Fiat 500 is a car produced by the Fiat company of Italy between 1957 and 1975, with limited production of the Fiat 500 K estate continuing until 1977. The car was designed by Dante Giacosa.

Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 3 metres (10 feet) long, and originally powered by a tiny 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city cars.

In 2007 Fiat launched a similar styled, longer and heavier front wheel drive car, the Fiat Nuova 500.




Formula F1 Pictures


Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1 and officially referred to as the FIA Formula One World Championship, is the highest class of single seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules with which all participants' cars must comply. The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix (translated to English as "Big Prizes"), held on purpose-built circuits and public roads. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organizers, and circuits required to be holders of valid Super Licences, the highest class of racing licence issued by the FIA.

Formula One cars race at high speeds (up to 360 km/h (220 mph)) with engines whose performance is limited to a maximum of 18,000 rpm. The cars are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g in corners. The performance of the cars is highly dependent on electronics – although traction control and other driving aids have been banned since 2008 – and on aerodynamics, suspension and tyres. The formula has seen much evolution and change through the history of the sport. Europe, where all the Formula One racing teams are based, is the sport's traditional centre and where around half of each year's races take place. However, the sport's scope has expanded significantly in recent years and an increasing number of Grands Prix are held on other continents.

Formula One is a massive television event, with an aggregate global audience of 600 million people for each race. The Formula One Group is the legal holder of the commercial rights. With annual spending totalling billions of US dollars, Formula One's economic effect is significant, and its financial and political battles are widely covered. Its high profile and popularity make it an obvious merchandising environment, which leads to very high investments from sponsors, translating into extremely high budgets for the constructors. However, mostly since 2000, due to the always increasing expenditures, several teams, including works teams from car makers and those teams with minimal support from the automotive industry, have gone bankrupt or been bought out by companies wanting to establish a team within the sport; these buyouts are also influenced by Formula One limiting the number of participant teams.

Mercedes Benz ML350 Pictures


The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is a luxury mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV), first offered in 1997 as a 1998 model, and built by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz. Gradually, the M-Class became a sales success in the United States and Mexico. In terms of size, it is slotted in between the smaller GLK-Class (based on the C-Class) and the larger GL-Class, with which it shares platforms. For a short time, between the years 1999 to 2002, the M class was also built by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, for the European market, until it moved to part of the U.S. market.

Bentley Continental Flying Star Pictures


The majority of auto journalists are car freaks by nature. One of the many defining characteristics of a car freak is an undying, unadulterated love of any sort of shooting brake. If you're not a car freak, or just don't know the term, a shooting brake is a two-door station wagon. Why is this bodystyle so beloved? Many reasons, but let's just chalk it up to the impracticality of a sports car mixed well with the practicality of a station wagon. What can we say, it's a boat floater.

For Geneva, Italian car maker Touring Superleggera showed us freaks their new, stunning Flying Star. Built at the request of a customer and with the full cooperation of Bentley, the Flying Star is a shooting brake built from the Bentley Continental GTC. Honestly, there's not all that much to tell. Underneath the new skin sits... a Bentley Continental GTC, complete with its 560-horsepower, 479-pound-feet-of-torque twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12. Or, if you insist, Touring Superleggera will build you a GTC Speed-based Flying Star with 610 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Oh, and there's a support structure between the rear shocks that acts as both a hard structure for the new roofline and an integrated roll bar.

The real story, however, is being told by your eyeballs. Many of us have never been all that enthused by the shape of the Continental. But the Flying Star, well, it completes the design. How good? Four of us Autobloggers were gathered around a single laptop gasping at admiring Touring Superleggera's handicraft work. So yes, we think this is a very wonderful looking car. 100-percent picture perfect? No, as the tailgate's not quite... something. But let's not be petty, the Flying Star is fantastic looking.

Useful, too, as you can fit four golf bags in the rear. You might be wondering why a two-seat vehicle would need to carry four golf bags, but if you look closely you'll notice two additional seats in back. They of course fold down, allowing the Flying Star to swallow even more golf bags (no official word on exactly how many).

Besides the Flying Star's overall shooting brakeness, our favorite part has to be the woven leather "boot carpet," i.e. a beautiful material that covers the rear cargo area, the back of the rear seats and the rear floormats. Have we ever been excited about carpet before? No, never. And we doubt we ever will be again. That said, we doubt we'll be seeing any coachbuilt cars that get us as excited as the Flying Star. Now word on price (think: expensive!) but Touring Superleggera will be building just under 20 examples per year. Go car freaks, go. Full press release after the jump.





Aston Martin DB9 Pictures


The Aston Martin DBR9 is a racecar that was first built by Aston Martin in the year 2005. It is named after former owner David Brown and is derived from the original DBR1 car, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans competition. The original car was also the winner of the World Sports car title.

The Aston Martin DBR9 is based on the DB9 road model. This version retains the cylinder block, chassis, and heads of that car’s V12 Configuration. The rest of the DBR9, however, has been re-Configurationered in order to be put to the test of performance competition. The bodywork of the vehicle blends great aerodynamic performance with the DB9’s aesthetic approach. The car’s body panels have been constructed from carbon fiber composite in order to minimize the car’s weight. In order to complete the aerodynamic body of the vehicle, its bottom has been designed flat from the front to the diffuser in the rear.

For the purpose of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in the year 2007, Prodrive modified the design of the Aston Martin DBR9 in order to increase the comfort of the driver in the cockpit, while also improving the general racing performance of the automobile.
