According to Audi, 2011 seems to be already a record-setting year in the U.S., surpassing its 2010 record by the end of November. 104,906 vehicles have already been sold by Audi through November 30, better than the 101,629 units sold in all of 2010. Since Christmas is close, sales are expected to rise and so a greater gap between the 2010 sales records and the current mark should be created.
A teaser video for the new turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 was released by Bentley and it seems that the video is going to be showcased in full at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. A new Bentley driving experience is going to be offered by the stirring and thunderous sound of the new car, stated the UK car manufacturer.
Despite receiving positive comments and feedback and despite the fact that it is considered one of the company’s most impressive engineering efforts in quite some time, the new Juke-R determined some negative reactions amongst Nissan executives in the Japanese headquarters, who are not really happy. It seems that the team that is in fact behind the Juke-R apparently did not seek full approval before beginning to build the GT-R/Juke R hybrid. The concept may have been born in secret before the teaser videos were making their way online.
According to New York Times, both Red Bull and Ferrari have withdrawn themselves from the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA), organization which serves as a forum for advancing the goals of the sports teams.
A Ferrari special edition 599, also known as the 599 GTB 60F1 is going to be launched soon in order to mark the six decades of winning in Formula 1. Fortunately, the first pictures of this new model have appeared. Ferrari’s first F1 race was won by Froilan Gonzalez in 1951 and 60 years later, Fernando Alonso won Ferrari’s first race of the current season.
The new Jaguar XF Sportbrake has been spotted by the paparazzi, partly in camouflage. The car has been seen during a test drive around Jaguar’s R&D base in Coventry.
This wagon shape was not in the original design plans as an XF derivative and so product planners have had a considerable task in converting the four-door saloon into an executive estate.
