I’m a fan of the rings especially when it comes to this car….or supercar, rather. The 2016 Audi R8 is the second generation R8 and is also the basis for the GT3 race-car. Compared to its predecessor, the new R8 sheds around 110 lbs. and is a half second quicker in the 60. At 205 mph this R8 is the fastest Audi ever made for the streets. Stuffed to the gills, or side vents, with top of the line features like carbon-ceramic brake discs, custom stitched headliner, and in-car Wi-Fi, Audi looks to deliver the luxury it has been known for, as well as giving the prancing horses and raging bulls a run for their money. The car also comes with some eco-friendly features but I doubt those would be used very often. Speaking of eco-friendly, you can also special order the R8 “e-tron” which has more electric power than the Tesla Model S at 92 kWh. This will give the e-tron a range of 279 miles and can be charged in two hours. The e-tron is a bit slower than the R8 and has it’s speed limited to 155 mph. As the previous model R8 showed, there will probably be a V-8, and V-10 models ranging from $120k to $250k for the e-tron. Go cash in those refund checks quick.
With the Geneva Motor Show right around the corner, Mercedes has decided to unveil their latest special edition model. To commemorate their many wins at Italy’s “Mille Miglia” race (1,000 mi) in the original SL 300, Mercedes will release an all new vehicle in two models; the SL400 & SL500. The SL400 will feature a V6, while the upgraded SL500 will feature a 455hp V8 engine. A clean car that hopes to uphold Mercedes’ long legacy of fine auto making. Check out a few pics above and stay tuned for more information after the Geneva Motor Show.
With the Geneva Motor Show right around the corner, it appears that all of the major car companies are unveiling their latest. German automaker Porsche recently teased photos and specs for their upcoming Cayman GT4, set to drop later this year.

The car will see it’s official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in march, check out the teaser clip below for now.
Ferrari is getting set to unveil the latest beast from their factory. The “488 GTB” is the new pinnacle within Ferrari’s Berlinetta class, capable of going from 0 to 62mph in 3 seconds flat; the new super car tops out at just over 200mph. The Italian car maker is planning to officially debut the vehicle at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, click the link below for more information via Ferrari.
BMW recently introduced the brand new design to their 1 series BMW. The model will be available in both the 3 door and 5 door options. Whether you are a fan or not, I personally find this smaller 326hp twin-turbo hatchback to be one sexy car. Aside from it’s small body and powerful engine, the new BMW will have a variety of technologically advanced features: assistant parallel parking, rain sensors, auto AC, LED lights and a radar based cruise control (to name a few).
