Lumma Design and Shaston have come together to do something that is really hard to do. Make the BMW 760Li look even better. This was achieved by an exterior package containing a new front that integrates grid inserts, fog lights, and LED daytime running lights. A new lower suspension setting drops the luxury sedan while the new wheel arch extensions, special set of deep door-sills, and the new rear diffuser add to the overall aggressive look of the vehicle. The whole appearance of the BMW 760Li is completed by genuine carbon/Kevlar covering the exterior mirror caps, kidney front grille frame, all door handle covers, the boot lid trim, the four-piece pillar trim set for doors, and the mud guards. Finally to top it all of they have added a new set of 20 inch rims. No performance specs have been released yet, but most people should be fine with the stock TwinPower Turbo v12 delivering a whopping 544 HP 553 lb-ft of torque
Wald International, a Japanese auto tuner, has come up with quite an impressive set up for the new 7 series. Named The “Black Bison” edition they have fitted Wald Renovatio R13 22-inch rims, a body kit which consists of a new front bumper with LED daytime running lights, side skirts, a new rear bumper with LED brake lights, and roof and trunk spoilers. Finally a finishing touch that they added is the new aggressive exhaust system fitted with quad oval pipes emitting from the rear skirt in a “muffler cutter” design – meaning the double pipes overlap. While no price has been set for this package yet, the looks alone are well worth it.
With an estimated price of $230,000 to begin with, a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 592 hp, a lightweight carbon-fiber chassis, and a curb weight of 2,866 pounds, this car definitely has all the components of a true super car. With only a 1000 units set for production for 2011, please make sure you hurry and get one fast. Oh and try not to scratch the other few super cars you got in your garage as you pull this one in.
AMG and Pagani both have confirmed that the upcoming Pagani C9 will not have the same V12 engine as the SL65 AMG Black Series. Although the new engine will be made by AMG, what exact engine Pagani will use to destroy all their competition is still up in the air. Regardless, if you see one behind you, dont even try to race it.

With 340 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque, the RS3 packs 75 more HP and 74 more lb-ft of torque then it’s little brother the S3. Add to that dual clutch transmission and four-wheel drive and you have produced one of the world’s fastest production hatchbacks with a standstill 0-62 time of 4.6 seconds. Only drawback? You won’t be seeing the RS3 anytime soon here.
Rumors have died down since the 2008 Paris Auto Show when the Lamborghini Estoque was announced, a vehicle that is supposed to rival the Porsche Panamera Turbo, Aston Martin Rapide, and the next generation Maserati Quattroporte due to the fact that the 2011 launch date was scrubbed because of the global recession. Now rumors have resurfaced that the four-door Italian beauty is scheduled to be released in 2012. At a stunning 542 BHP and 398 lb-ft of Torque, it surely will give it’s European friends quite a sweat.
