2012 BMW M5

Ladies and Gentlemen the beast has been unveiled, so much talk about this machine and at last it has been shown to the masses. The next iteration of a very mean four door sedan. There is something that I find to be very attractive about the M5 from the original version until now and I love that BMW keeps making these aggressive machines, and I especially like it in this color, this blue is probably my favorite color.

The 2012 M5 is about more than mere surface beauty, after all. The sonorous V10 of the last M5 has been traded out for a twin-turbocharged V8 fist. Power is up, with 552 horsepower (the V10 produced 507 hp) coming on at 6,000 rpm – 1,750 rpm lower than the V10. Torque is hugely boosted from 383 pound-feet to 501 lb-ft, which will be great for shoving this car to 60 miles per hour in a reported 4.4 seconds. That’ll route to the rear wheels via a standard dual-clutch transmission, though a proper six-speed stick. The cost of entry is rumored to be around €100,000 in Germany, which is around 39,000 KWD which I’m assuming it will be close to in Kuwait.

Geiger Corvette Z06

Other then the lime green look of this machine, its a rocket on wheels. With 890 bhp and 694 ft-lbs of torque coming from the Twin Turboed Z06 engine, you don’t know what to expect of this machine. I do like the rear of that car, the hood doesn’t seem too appealing, but what a monster coming from a German firm. Too handle all this power they have upgraded the brakes, installed a carbon fiber drive shaft, upgraded the clutch to handle this amount of power. I’m honestly surprised that a German company would be so interested in American machines, but the Z06 is one interesting car.

X6 M

I have always liked the styling of the X6, it has gotten a very large mix of opinions people either love the car or hate the car. Peronsally I think its a well designed SUV with a low center of gravity. I like how it looks, even though I think it needs a different set of rims, I heard the V8 version is very fast, and now that they came up with the X6 M thats just ridiculous.

Now they have a boosted the 4.4 Liter V8 to a 555 bhp with 500 lb-ft of torque. Its probably ridiculously fast and handles very well for an SUV, it seems that way from the X6 M track video. Whoever was driving that car was really pushing it.

z03_1
Its rare to see a design company that creates concept vehicles suddenly make it into a production vehicle. This is what happened with Ugur Sahin Design, they joined up with Mallet Cars to make for a very mean looking machine.

The body has been redesigned with functionality in mind, creating more downforce and more space for engine modifications. The modified body is available for $69,000, but there are also other vehicle modifications which include suspension, interior, engine, and brakes. You can have the Z03 with 700 bhp which will cost you $32,000 or the 999 bhp model for $35,795. All of this and you have yet to include the price of a Z06, I don’t know what the performance of this car will be like but all I know is that it looks mean and it has the bite to go with the bark.
