How about waking up this morning and finding in your garage two huge red boxes like those. This commercial by BMW is just explosive. I really like this type of commercials, power, engine noises, drifting, and a nice slogan at the end. It features two of there latest babies, the M6 GranCoupe and the HP4 motorbike drifting all over the place. The M6 features the brand new twinturbocharged 4.4 liters V8 engine that delivers up to 560hp and 680 Nm of torque. This new M car is gonna be equipped with the M Double Clutch transmission that allows it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. About the HP4 now, HP stands for High Performance in the BMW dictionary. This fourth edition has the same engine performance as the S 1000 RR, 193hp and 82 ft-lb of torque. The difference is the weight that has been reduced to only 169 kg.
After launching the SLS AMG 45th Anniversary edition a couple of weeks a go, Benz are announcing the SLS we were all waiting for, the Black Series edition. Eight month after the C63 Black edition, an SLS was a must. This new version of the famous SLS is not only road friendlier but also faster and lighter than the SLS GT. Does it have a screaming, shouting, ear fu**ing V8 combined with a whooping exhaust? Most probably. But this time the famous 6.2 V8 has been squeezed and now delivers 622hp and 634 lb-ft. The weight saving has been achieved thanks to the installation of light weight ceramic brakes, and lots of CRFP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymers) made parts here and there. The end result is a Black Edition 70kgs lighter than the previous SLS GT. I really like the fact that this Benz includes a lot of features from the 45th anniversary edition while being a derivable comfortable car that you can take on a spin around the track on Sundays. The Solar Beam paint is very similar to the Electric Yellow of the MINI models. I really liked the color but I think that, as all Black Edition models, this SLS should definitively be featured in white. The ad by itself is nothing special, the intention of Mercedes was just to show there new creation to the world; just show it not listen to it.
A few days ago Mercedes revealed its all brand new SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary edition model. I just love the “anniversary editions” sports cars they always have amazing features. Most of the times, the features added to the car transforms it into a collection car, not a “better to drive version” of the production model. This SLS AMG GT3 is a perfect example. Would you be able to drive this version of the SLS in your every days life? I dough it. For this 45th anniversary, the AMG team worked on a race edition of the SLS model. They mostly developed the aerodynamics. This edition is much lighter than the road version. It features a huge rear spoiler, a roll cage and other aerodynamic parts.
The interior is completely optimized to minimize weight. A big number of the luxury features have been replaced by carbon fiber race like buttons. Only 5 of these monsters will be build. They will be completely hand made and delivered by the AMG team directly to the lucky customers. Regarding the engine, the SLS GT3 will feature the normal 6.3 liters V8 that is available in the SLS AMG model.
Introducing the official ad of the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series. Like the C63 AMG with its 451hp and 443lb-ft of torque wasn’t fast enough, Mercedes introduced the coupe black edition of that model featuring 510hp and 457 lb-ft. This upgraded version of the C63 AMG is just wonderful.
This is the Camaro 2012 convertible commercial that was shown during the 2012 superbowl night. I drove the RS version of the Camaro and I must say it was amazing. You really feel like driving a muscle car: the car is large, it’s rear wheel drive, the power and the noise it delivers is amazing. Its look is so aggressive specially at night with the beams on. AND you can get a Transformers, yellow edition of one of those!!
