Audi A3 sedan concept revealed
Intended to recapture the glory of the original A4 (B5) that launched in 1994, the A3, shown for the first time as a sedan, features the familiar Audi family grille with LED lined headlamps. Elsewhere, Audi keeps things interesting with agressive bumper fascias, flared fender arches and big 20-inch wheels constructed of carbon fiber and aluminum. Dressed like a future RS model, power arrives via the same 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine found in the RS3 Sportback. However, the A3 sedan concept produces 68 PS (50 kW / 67 bhp) more at 408 PS (300 kW / 402 hp) through a seven-speed S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. Performance is supercar good with the 0-100 km/h sprint taking 4.1-seconds in the 1540 kg (3400 lb) vehicle.

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid drives - first real video
This past Thursday, the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid made its driving debut on a closed road in Monterey California, just days prior to its appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. After being shipped over from Germany by plane, engineers handed the keys of the new 918 Spyder Hybrid to Porsche AG Design Chief Michael Mauer. The car drove under its own power which comes from the mid mounted 3.4 liter V8 out of the RS Spyder as well as in all electric mode which powers just the front wheels. The 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT, on the other.
