2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Black Diamond Edition (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
General Motors showed off the sexy new Cadillac Black Diamond Edition CTS-V Sport Wagon at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, complete with its exotic SpectraFlair paint and snazzy yellow brake calipers. As you may recall, GM partnered up with JDSU for the special hue, and each Black Diamond Edition Caddy gets a three-coat paint process. Along with the shiny stuff, Cadillac bolted on a set of Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels that help make those wild calipers pop in a big way, and the interior makes use of plenty of micro suede and special wood accenting.
The combined effect is one very sinister long-roof.
Prices for the gussied-up CTS-V coupe start at $70,490, which is a $4,850 premium over the run of the mill V. Worth it? We'll just say that this machine is one of the few at this year's Chicago Auto Show that made our do-want list.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was a performance
monster, featuring an all-aluminum engine displacing 427 cubic inches that
was originally intended for racing. Just 69 units were built, and they are
highly coveted by collectors today. Perhaps it shouldn't come as a
surprise, then, that Chevrolet chose to resurrect this classic moniker for
what it is calling the fastest and most technologically advanced Camaro ever built.
At this point, specifications are still preliminary, but Chevrolet is
estimating that its supercharged and intercooled 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine
will put out around 550 horsepower and 550
pound-feet of torque. Those ponies will be sent to the rear wheels via a
six-speed manual transmission using a dual-disc clutch that's necessary to
properly harness all those horses. There's also a dual-mode Exhaust system that alters the sound level and
character in response to engine rpm.
Chevrolet tells us that its goal was to build "a Camaro intended to reach optimal
lap times on top road-racing circuits and excellent driving dynamics on the
street." To that end, the 2012 Camaro ZL1 will be fitted with a
new electric power steering system and Magnetic Ride Control that will
offer both Tour and Sport modes. Brembo brakes measuring 14.6-inch (370 mm)
in the front (with six-piston calipers) and 14.4-inch (365 mm) at the rear
(with four-piston calipers) bring it all back down from speed.
Naturally, there's an updated body kit to differentiate the ZL1 from lesser
machines. Most notable are the redesigned fascia that features a front
splitter, vertical fog lamps and air intakes designed for brake cooling.
There's also a new aluminum hood with a raised, satin black-finish carbon
fiber insert that uses a unique air extractor that is said to increase
downforce by directing oncoming air over the car. There's also a spoiler at
the rear of the car and new 20-inch aluminum wheels fitted with specially
developed Goodyear Supercar F2 tires.
Chevrolet promises to have the Camaro ZL1 on dealer lots in the
beginning of 2012, and it will be available in any color offered on the Camaro.

2011 CTS-V Coupe, 2011 CTS-V Wagon, 2011 CTS-V performance options - Road Test TV
http://www.roadtesttv.com/ Road Test TV -- The World's fastest sedan, just
got a little better. Now that Cadillac has a new Coupe and Sport Wagon
Version of their CTS-V, buyers of Cadillac's CTS-V Sedans also have a lot
to look forward to in 2011.
In addition to the known potent 556 hp supercharged 6.2 liter V8, the 2011
CTS-V will be packing some new performance equipment. First, in August of
2010, the CTS-V will be available with Brembo 2 piece rotors.
Beginning in December of 2010, CTS-V buyers will be able to order the
1) Satin Graphite 19″ V Series Wheels;
2) Yellow V Series 6 pistion Calpers in front- 4 piston rear;
3) Black Chrome Grille, and
4) Limited Slip Differential with Oil Cooler (Available March 2011).
Cadillac appears to be very serious about taking their performance marque
CTS-V up another notch. Improved brakes and an oil cooler for the limited
slip differential is a step in that direction. If you would like to read
more about Cadillac's CTS-V, go to their official website.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
Volkswagen has brought its latest iteration of the new-for-2011 Jetta --
the turbocharged GLI -- to this year's
Chicago Auto Show, and we're quickly falling in love with the
Autobahn-ready VW. The Jetta's already handsome (if decidedly sedate) looks
are emphasized by larger 18-inch alloy wheels, a more aggressive front
fascia and smoked taillamps, and when the whole package is painted in
pull-me-over red, we can't help but daydream about whipping the new Jetta
GLI around our favorite set of twisty backroads.
The Jetta GLI is indeed eager to perform, too. Under the hood is
Volkswagen's turbocharged 2.0-liter
inline-four, rated at 200 horsepower and 207
pound-feet of torque. Both a manual and dual-clutch transmission are
available, the latter of which allows the Jetta GLI to achieve up to 32
miles per gallon on the highway. Not bad.
Look for the 2012 Jetta GLI to go on sale later this year, priced from

2011 BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Concept
The 2011 Geneva Motor Show will see the world premier of the BMW
ConnectedDrive Concept car. The concept study, in a two-seat roadster
guise, presents the automobile as a fully integrated part of the networked
world in both its design and technological innovations. It is with this
concept that BMW presents the potential of current and future in-car
technology for optimizing comfort, safety and infotainment.
The BMW ConnectedDrive Concept employs a layering principal in its design,
demonstrating the bond between the driver, passenger, vehicle and the
surrounding environment. This is visualised by the complex light
installation which shows the path of data exchange with the driver and
passenger as the start and end point of each interaction.
The interior is divided into three layers - comfort, infotainment and
safety - each with a corresponding light installation. Each layer is
defined by a colour, rhythm, motion and texture and, through the
transparent surfaces the path taken by the information can be seen via
fiber optic lighting.
The first layer focuses on safety, with a red light wrapping around the
driver and coming together in a cone on the bonnet. This represents the
flow of safety-specific information and the driver's focus on the road
ahead. The second layer encompasses the safety layer and extends to the
passenger cell, focusing on infotainment. This layer promotes active social
exchangement between the driver and passenger and is outlined by the blue
ribbon of light. The final layer, defined by the green light flow,
concentrates on the interaction of the vehicle with the world around it.
The emphasis is on the outside of the vehicle, starting and ending with the
two antennas, in place of wing mirrors, providing the data link to the
