Looks like LED lighting is ever evolving into one heck of a technological creation after another. The Audi Q7 comes with xenon projectors, but for about 2,000 more Euros, you can get a Q7 with the Matrix LED system. This upgrade maximizes visibility but at the same time, doesn’t blind oncoming traffic. We all know of that one car in the intersection who has their high beams on that you start seeing light auras even after you have driven off. This is not only inconvenient, but it’s also extremely dangerous.
The Q7 will also have a new grille design for a stronger front end look, for those who love to have an SUV that has reliability and fierceness combined.
We see all sorts of vehicles for all walks of life testing on the Nurburgring, but sometimes these prototypes break down like the case of this 2016 Kia Optima. No worries for the driver or the engineer team, since there was a tow truck conveniently waiting to send the Optima back to the technical center.
Looks like we just have to wait and see what the car has in store for us when it comes back with a vengeance. Stay tuned for more news about the 2016 Kia Optima and what the engineers are doing to fix it.
What’s under this mysterious camo wrap? A Mercedes-Benz E-Class! You can’t really tell what’s underneath all of that secrecy, but what we know for sure is that the E-class will be even more appealing when it comes to design. It will be using the Mercedes’ new MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform and it’s also the one being used by the C-class as well. The new E-Class will be powered by an inline-six engine and is the start of a grand scheme of things.
All we need to do now is to stay tuned to what’s happening in the world of Mercedes-Benz and maybe we will be able to the camo unwrapped soon enough.
The Nissan GT-R is something of a legend and it looks like this is the last facelift for the current generation of the Godzilla. The GT-R has had certain upgrades dedicated to it every year, and last year was the fine tuning for the "GT" over the "R", meaning that the both the speed and stability benefited from tweaking the suspension. We saw adaptive LED headlights and a slew of new exterior and interior colors, most befitting for the legend.
So what can we expect for the 2016 model? You will see bespoke Bilstein DampTronic shock absorbers. custom springs, Dunlop exclusive tires, and an updated suspension. After this generation, we may see a hybrid GT-R in 2017/2018 with an electric motor.
The new Honda Civic Type R has been spotted doing extensive testing and in super incognito wrap as well. You can’t see much under all of that camouflage wrap, except for some red brake calipers that look like it’s from Brembo and some pretty bad-ass red bucket seats. Honda has recently released a press statement stating that this Type R model will be the fastest one that has ever been made.
Honda concept cars have always looked the same as the ones that roll off the production line, so except the models out in 2015 to look the same.
