BMW presented the racing version of the new BMW M3 at the Chicago Auto Show. Powered by a 485 bhp eight cylinder engine, this impressive race car has been designed to compete in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) beginning in 2009. The car is based on the fourth generation of the BMW M3, the high-performance sports car produced by BMW M GmbH.

BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen says: "With the sporting genes of the production BMW M3 being clearly evident, developing a racing version of the car was the next logical step. The fact that the road-going vehicle is fitted with a V8 engine as standard provided us with an ideal base. However, the BMW M3 is more than a race car, it has achieved legendary status amongst race fans across the globe. I am convinced that this unique story of the BMW M3 racing cars will now be expanded upon by the addition of further chapters."

BMW's 2009 entry into the American Le Mans Series will be driven by a partnership between BMW of North America, LLC and Rahal Letterman Racing, co-owned by US motorsport legend Bobby Rahal.

BMW M3 ALMS Race Car 2009"We are very pleased to be returning to the American Le Mans Series with our latest generation BMW M3," states Tom Purves, Chairman and CEO, BMW of North America. "Sports car racing has been part of BMW of North America's history practically from day one. Just two weeks after the company was incorporated in March 1975, a BMW CSL won the Twelve Hours of Sebring. We are confident that the fourth generation M3 will continue the legacy of its two predecessors which combined to win six manufacturer's championships over nine seasons in US sports car racing. As it has been in the past we believe the ALMS is the ideal venue to showcase the potential of the newest BMW M3."

Echoing that sentiment Bobby Rahal adds, "BMW has an illustrious racing heritage. Rahal Letterman Racing is eagerly anticipating, not only becoming part of that heritage, but helping to enhance it. Our dedication to this project will be without equal and we look forward to racing at the front of the grid with BMW in the years to come."

Martin Birkmann, Motorsports Manager, BMW of North America, adds: "We are very excited to announce our return to the American Le Mans Series with the 4th generation M3 at the same time as the road car hits the BMW showrooms. We are also excited about our partnership with Rahal Letterman Racing. The ALMS offers racing where we can compete against the finest and most renowned automotive brands from Europe and the US. Motorsport is deeply ingrained in the BMW DNA and we are pleased to partner with an organization which shares that same heritage. Rahal Letterman Racing is the perfect partner to be behind the wheel of our new BMW M3 racing effort."

Aerodynamic efficiency is the goal of all race car designers. It is the most important element in developing a competitive race car.

Made by Romanian tuning house MAFF, the Muron package adds all manner of fiberglass and carbon-fiber body panels to help accentuate the Cayenne's natural lines.
But the Bucharest-based aftermarket garage doesn't stop there, giving the full treatment to the interior as well.
Buyers can choose from a variety of cabin trim options, with various leather and alcantara.
choices are available along with carbon fiber accents and plenty of info-tainment choices to make your Cayenne stand out at the soccer field.
There are engine upgrades available too, topping out at 700 horsepower.

You wouldn’t know there is a credit crunch following news that the world’s most pricey rental car is on the market at a staggering £15,000 per day.

The Buggati Veyron is worth more than £800,000 pounds, part of the reason why this large and fast car costs so much to hire out.
The other main reason is that the car, which can go at almost 250 miles per hour and does 0-60 in under three seconds, is one of only 25 of its kind in the world.

The £15 grand daily rate is nothing compared to the deposit required for this bad boy – a whopping £100,000. And that’s not surprising considering the car needs 10 radiators just to keep its eight litre engine from overheating.

Considering premier league footballers are some of the only people wealthy enough to afford that, and most of them buy their cars, it begs the question of who does hire this behemoth? It has apparently already been taken out twice this year.

The owner of the Buggati Veyron is actually a business man who has leased it to the car company so he can make money when he is not using it.

The car company is Holders Prestige and Performance Car Hire which is based in Reading, Berkshire.
Company spokesman Eesa Mander said: "This is unquestionably the best car on the planet and for that reason alone it commands a massive price tag.
"It has the ultimate speed and performance and people are prepared to pay a premium price for those qualities.

"People take this out and drive across Europe to Monaco to experience some luxury - it's an experience car. They need to consider that it will attract a lot of attention."
For the £70,000 it costs to rent the Buggati Veyron per week you could rent a whole fleet of small economy cars.

The New Subaru Exiga MPV Car Pictures, Images and Photos.Subaru Exiga MPV is a luxury car. Subaru will launch the production version of the Subaru from Exiga, the concept car that was exhibited in 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.Subaru Exiga was 7 seater MPV in a manner 4780mm long, 1775mm wide and 1630mm high, whereas wheel base 2750mm.Although much information mentioned Exiga will be built with the base Impreza, but wheel base and the exterior dimensions Exiga was more similar to Toyota, the Subaru version of the production of the Subaru Exiga, the concept car that was exhibited at 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.Subaru Exiga is MPV 7 seats in a manner 4780mm long, 1775mm wide and 1630mm high, while the wheelbase of 2750mm.Although much information Exiga will be built with the Impreza, but the wheelbase and exterior dimensions Exiga was more similar to Toyota Mark X ZIO that was based on the Camry platform (2776mm) and Honda Odyssey (2830mm).It is a fact Exiga will use the platform for next-generation Subaru Legacy.The generation now wheelbase of 2670mm.So to increase in 2750 was logical enough.
Moreover, the production version of the Exiga radius smaller than the version of his concept for the use of the Impreza platform.Possible, because the component of the Impreza and Forester ray was used, so that production efficiency increased.Also among them the machine 2.0 liter or 2.5 liter boxer turbo and automatic transmission 5-speed Sport Shift. Mark X ZIO that was based on the Camry platform (2776mm) and Honda Odyssey (2830mm).The fact is, Exiga will possibly use the platform next generation Subaru Legacy.The generation that now had wheel base 2670mm.

The Peugeot 505 is a classic car. The Peugeot 505 was in many respects one of the last of its kind at a time, into the mainstream (as opposed to the prestige-) European manufacturers began to front-wheel-drive family cars, Peugeot has decided to rear wheel drive 505, the ontinuation the long tradition of family with fixed Peugeot 403, 404 and 504th.

The same technique was used as the 504, with independent rear on most saloon cars while still very practical to use a live rear axle. Choice of hand, but as time went on the 505 offered more power, luxury and economy. The 2.2 GTi model offers better performance and a luxurious interior, then, four-cylinder turbo and 2.8 V6 models. And of course there was the turbo-charged diesel with 2 / 5 GTD GTD between cooler and offer more power, in fact Peugeot was the first manufacturer to provide turbo-diesel cars, which we must always be grateful. The 505 qualities were highly valued, not only in Europe but also in Africa and Latin America. Excellent ride and handling are very well suited for harsh conditions in many countries, where they continue to give sterling service.Production of the 505 is no longer in France in 1992, but also in other markets sometime thereafter. It was never directly replaced, but still a very popular car, the last of the old line.

We don't know why Giugiaro named this after a long-defunct builder of idiosyncratic British sports cars, but the Frazer Nash concept is looking to become the world's fastest hybrid with a 186 MPH top speed.

Aside from a car which looks more Lamborghini than Targa Florio, the Frazer Nash Concept has a central boast of "World's Fastest Hybrid" with a claimed top speed of 186 MPH. Sort of an odd and probably specific claim around a traditional gasoline-electric passenger category since KERS equipped F1 cars will probably be kinda fast and there have been some pretty quick land speed record hybrids. Semantics aside, the Frazer Nash Concept will debut next month at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, where it will compete against the Rinspeed iCharge for most lauded one-off engineering exercises
Driving excitement and hybrid power are concepts rarely uttered in the same breath, but Giugiaro is promising the fastest hybrid in the world with a concept set to make its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. A new drawing of the concept leaked today reveals what it will look like.

So far information is scarce, with just a few hints on Giugiaro's site, along with a preview image. A full-on shot of the car leaked today, however, ruining the teasing aspect of Giugiaro's presentation. The photo reveals a car that looks much like the Quaranta concept from last year's Geneva Motor Show, which was itself promised to be powered by a hybrid powertrain.

Rumors of a Wankel rotary engine powering a generator have emerged, though the Quaranta was based around a 3.3L V6 petrol engine and two electric motors rated at 268hp (200kW) and 212lb-ft (288Nm) of torque together. The use of a Wankel seems an odd choice - though they are volumetrically efficient, they tend to use a lot of fuel for a given power output. There's also talk of a pure electric-drive system, says Automotive News Europe, with an electric motor on each wheel providing full-time AWD and a plug-in hybrid system similar to that of the Chevy Volt.Whatever is powering it, the hybrid drivetrain would push the car to a claimed 4.05 second 0-62mph (0-100km/h) time. The powertrain layout also makes the car four-wheel drive, since the engine powers one axle, and each motor powers one of the remaining wheels.Emissions are targeted at 50g/km CO2, or about half the output of the latest generation of hybrid econo-cars like the 2010 Toyota Prius or the 2009 Honda Insight.It's likely that the car to be revealed at Geneva is a further-developed version of the Quaranta, possibly even with a fully operational drivetrain. If that is the case, Fisker's Karma will have some serious competition on its hands in terms of outright looks as well as performance.
