Cadillac announced the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, which debuts at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It combines the new Cadillac CTS Coupe's dramatic design with the 556-horsepower (415-kW) supercharged V-8 engine from the Cadillac CTS-V sedan. The result is a luxury sports coupe aimed at driving enthusiasts.
"The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe marries our most potent and sophisticated technology with our most dramatic production design," said Bryan Nesbitt, Cadillac general manager. "This combination of visual and technical attributes is designed to create a very compelling choice for luxury sports car consumers."
The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe begins production this summer. Its suite of technical and performance elements includes Magnetic Ride Control, racing-bred Brembo brakes and an available automatic transmission with paddle-shift control.
The V-Series Coupe includes a unique grille that doubles the car's air intake volume, an important enabler for its high-performance capabilities. It is also visually identified by a raised center section of the hood that provides clearance for the Supercharger, as well as specific front and rear fascias. Like the Cadillac CTS Coupe, its Exhaust is centered inside the rear fascia, but with unique twin outlets. The car rolls on 19-inch cast aluminum wheels, available in either painted or polished finishes, and Michelin Pilot Sport 2 performance tires.
The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe's rear track is nearly an inch wider than the CTS-V Sport Sedan, adding to the car's aggressive stance and enabling an extra measure of handling capability. The current CTS-V Sport Sedan has quickly established itself among the world's highest performing luxury sedans, becoming the first production four-door on street tires to break the legendary 8-minute barrier at Germany's famed Nürburgring. The new V-Series Coupe's sleeker shape and slightly lower mass ensure a similarly high level of performance.
Inside, the 2+2 cabin combines performance and luxury. A new Saffron interior trim color is offered, with contrasting microfiber seat inserts and stitching on the upper trim areas.
Introducing the Cadillac Ciel Concept
The Ciel -- pronounced "C-L" the French translation for sky -- is a
four-seat convertible that opens a new chapter in Cadillac's design and
product ascent. Ciel is a new expression of Cadillac's historical grandeur,
as well as a celebration of open-air motoring.
2015 Kia K900 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/k900/2015/ Kia has been building cars for over
20 years now. And during that time the brand has grown their line-up of
cars. What started as extremely affordable econo-boxes has bloomed into
mid-sized cars offered at a great value; and now we have the K900 which
pushes the perception of what a luxury car can be. The 2015 Kia K900 has a
base price of $59,500.
If Kia is going to be selling a luxury car, then said car must look the
part. On the outside the K900 has a stylish signature grille, adaptive
front projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch wheels.
Out back the K900 looks like a BMW. It is hard to sell a luxury car to
luxury car buyers without a potent power plant under the hood. The 2015 Kia
K900 is powered by Hyundai's TAO 5.0 liter V-8 GDI engine that makes 420 horsepower and 376
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the
On the inside, Kia has tried really hard to get the luxury part right. The
seats are incredibly comfortable and covered in soft Nappa leather. All the
touch points, materials, and dash layout all give the K900 a very upscale
feel and look which is important in order to get the buyers looking for an
Audi or Lexus. Finally Kia offers a level of technology that is not readily
available at this price point which sets the car apart from the rest of the
luxury car player.
Kia says the buyer of the K900 is looking for style, technology, luxury,
and value. Brand perception is up and hopefully the K900 can make a
positive impact for Kia.

551ft lb of torque that rockets the CTS-V from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds.
Did we mention that the Cadillac CTS-V Sedan delivers a 198 mph top speed,

luxury sedan that is!

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG
2012 CLS63 AMG -- benchmark in design
LOS ANGELES -- Stunning design, superior performance and groundbreaking
efficiency -- that is the all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG. The
four-door coupe features the all-new AMG V8 biturbo engine generating an output of up to 550 hp
and 590 lb-ft of torque, as well as the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed Sports
Transmission. Fuel economy of 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway (esti- mated
figures) represents an improvement of up to 33 percent compared with the
preceding model. The 2012 CLS63 AMG goes on sale in the US in the sum- mer
The combination of AMG Adaptive Suspension with the adaptive damping system
and a new front axle arrangement, plus new electro-hydraulic AMG sports
steering delivers supreme handling and dynamics. From a visual standpoint,
the 2012 CLS63 AMG cuts an impressive figure with its athletic stance and
distinctive exterior and interior design. The brand new active LED
high-performance headlights are available as an option, with LED Daytime
Running Lamps fitted as standard.
"The new CLS63 AMG writes the next chapter in the success story created by
the CLS55 AMG and CLS63 AMG, which have been amazing our customers around
the world since 2004," says Ola Källenius, General Manager of Mercedes-AMG
GmbH. "The CLS63 AMG is a unique, high-performance automobile -- it sets
new bench- marks in design, performance and efficiency."
As with the S63 AMG and CL63 AMG, drivers of the CLS63 AMG benefit from the
new eight-cylinder motor known internally as the M 157. The new AMG
5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine features a
combination of high-tech components -- in addition to spray-guided gasoline
direct injection with piezo injectors, it boasts an all-aluminum crank-
case, four-valve technology with variable camshafts, air-water charge-air
cooling, generator management and stop/start system. From 5,461 cm3, the
eight-cylinder generates a maximum output of 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of
torque. In combination with the optional AMG Performance Package, output
rises to 550 hp and 590 lb-ft. Both versions of the CLS63 AMG deliver
exceptional performance -- acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes 4.4 and 4.3
seconds respectively, with a top speed of 155 mph in the standard version
and 186 mph with the Performance Package (electronically limited. All
figures are preliminary).
The key difference between the two performance levels is the maximum charge
pres- sure of the twin turbochargers,
which is 14.5 psi in the standard CLS63 AMG and 18.8 psi with the
Performance Package. Moreover, the version with the Performance Package
boasts an attractive engine cover with carbon-fiber applications.
Quantum leap -- 33 percent improved fuel economy
Despite a substantial increase in output compared with the preceding model
with the AMG 6.3-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine producing 507 hp and
465 lb-ft, the new CLS63 AMG goes 4 miles further in the city on one gallon
of fuel, making it 33 per- cent more fuel-efficient -- no less than a
quantum leap. With estimated fuel economy of 16 mpg city and 21 mpg
highway, the new AMG V8 coupe is not only considerably better than all of
its direct competitors in the exclusive segment of high-performance
four-door coupes, it is also more fuel-efficient than many far less potent
vehicles. Both performance variants have identical fuel economy.
