The new 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 supercar
The ZR1 is the ultimate expression of Corvette’s technology-driven performance legacy.
A supercharged 6.2L LS9 engine and suite of advanced performance technologies, including Performance Traction Management and Magnetic Selective Ride Control, are the elements of the highest-performing Corvette in history, with changes for 2012 designed to make it more comfortable to drive.
Corvette ZR1 is the fastest production model ever offered by General Motors, with a top speed of 205 mph.
The new 2012 Chevrolet Corvette & Corvette Grand Sport sports car
Chevrolet will again elevate Corvette’s performance capabilities, with a series of improvements for the 2012 model year that increase on-track performance and interior refinement. They include enhancements to the high-performance Z06 and ZR1 models (see separate articles) as well as interior upgrades across the Corvette lineup.
Corvette also celebrates Chevrolet’s performance heritage with the 2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette, which features a sleek black color scheme, unique design elements and Corvette’s sports car technology. The special package is inspired by Chevrolet’s racing-bred foundation and is offered on all Corvette models for 2012.
The new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro muscle car
Chevrolet Camaro extends its momentum with enhancements for the 2012 model year.
Highlights include an improved version of its standard 3.6L Direct Injection V-6 engine, a new FE4 performance suspension package for SS coupes and several new interior and technology improvements, such as a revised instrument panel design, new steering wheel and rear camera system.
Introduced when the Lexus brand launched in 1989, the LS line-up continues to be the benchmark for incomparable comfort and performance in the flagship luxury sedan category. Exceptional craftsmanship, refinement and luxurious standard features set the LS apart from other premium luxury sedans.
With the LS 460 and long-wheelbase LS 460 L, both available in rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), Lexus offers choices to fit luxury consumer needs. For the 2012 model year, the Nebula Gray Pearl exterior color replaces Smoky Granite Mica.
The Lexus LS 460 models deliver the luxury of powerful, smooth performance from a 4.6-liter V8 teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 380 horsepower and 367 lb.-ft. of peak torque in rear-wheel-drive configuration; 357 horsepower and 344 lb.-ft. of torque with AWD.
Wearing the brand's "F" marque, the Lexus IS F provides drivers a thrilling experience unparalleled in the high performance sport sedan category.
Developed at Fuji Speedway and the Higashi-Fuji Technical Center in Japan, the IS F immediately merged “Lexus” and “performance” in the same sentence when it was introduced for the 2008 model year. Now, the IS F is not alone wearing the “F” badge as the brand’s high performance portfolio was recently enhanced by the LFA supercar.
After receiving an updated suspension last year, the 2012 IS F receives a new, stylish and wider 19-inch forged wheel design. The IS F shows its sporty attitude with an all-new Red leather-trim that replaces the Orange/Black combination seating and interior theme.
Complete with AWD and RWD models, two powerful engine choices, and a stylish package with 17-inch standard wheels, the Lexus IS sport sedan continues to be a favorite among customers.
The IS moves into the 2012 model year virtually unchanged after receiving numerous changes last year including revised front and rear styling, minor interior updates, an IS 350 all-wheel drive (AWD) model, and an F Sport Package for the IS 250/350 rear-wheel drive (RWD). The IS sedan models receive a revised color palette as Nebula Gray Pearl replaces Smoky Granite Mica and Fire Agate Pearl replaces Glacier Frost Mica.
If 530 PS, one of the world's most advanced four-wheel drive chassis, and supercar rarity value are not enough, Nissan has the answer: the Egoist, the ultimate expression of the famed GT-R, lovingly created for each owner using only the finest materials.
This exclusive version - specially created by ‘father' of the GT-R, chief vehicle engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno - has a hand-crafted interior using only the best quality hides, a Bose sound system tailored to the owner's exact dimensions and other features that showcase ancient Japanese art forms.
Such is the care and attention to detail given to every aspect of the car that the hand-painted badge on the steering wheel, for example, takes several days to create.
Nissan's iconic 370Z sports car has been sharpened for Europe. Showcased on the 370Z GT Edition - a special version which celebrates Nissan's success in international GT competition - a number of significant suspension improvements have been developed by engineers from Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTCE) to maximise the car's potential on Europe's roads.
The changes have also been adopted on the standard Coupé.
With higher average speeds than the rest of the world - notably in Germany where stretches of the autobahn are unrestricted - and with a wide range of surfaces from super smooth to badly pitted, Europe's roads are unlike anything found in Japan or North America.
Powerful, dynamic and forward-looking, Kia’s new concept car signals the company’s distinctive new design direction. This four-door sports sedan with a rear-wheel drive layout – a Kia first – marries sleek and muscular proportions with a sophisticated and elegant four-seater cockpit.
Although work on the Kia GT concept first started in November 2010, the idea of a powerful rear-wheel drive Kia saloon had been percolating in the minds of Kia’s European designers for some time.
The Astra GTC had its world premiere at the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt am Main, September 15 - 25, 2011.
The new Astra GTC stands out with sharp design and driving capabilities. On the outside, sculpted shapes with precise accents add drama to clean, sweeping coupé lines. And on the road, all Astra GTC versions benefit from a premium front axle layout with HiPerStrut – High Performance Strut – that ideally combines with the clever Opel patented Watt’s link rear axle to provide unmatched stability and the sharpest driving precision. Only very few, radical sporty cars in the segment offer such a sophisticated front axle architecture.
