Jaguar_XFR-S - The Hills Are Alive ! Wow !
The second model in Jaguar's ultra-high performance R-S range, the XFR-S joins its XKR-S sibling in the exclusive 300km/h club and is a vivid expression of Jaguar's longstanding and legendary sports saloon lineage.
The XFR-S incorporates engineering features from both the XKR-S and the all-new F-TYPE two-seater sports car to create the most driver-focused, agile and responsive iteration of Jaguar's award-winning XF saloon range. The XFR-S has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover's specialist ETO division - its bespoke powertrain, chassis and body enhancements enabling it to push the performance boundaries.
Electrifying performance is provided by the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine which now boasts 550PS and 680Nm - up 40PS and 55Nm respectively over its XFR installation. The increases have been achieved through revisions to the engine management system and optimisation of the flow of air both into and out of the engine.

New MERCEDES CLA-Class
The CLA is set to establish a new segment, with world-leading aerodynamics (Cd = 0.22), avant-garde coupé design and 4MATIC all‑wheel drive (optional). As a new four-door coupé it follows the idea of the CLS, whose design concept has spawned more than its fair share of imitators since its debut in 2003. With its frameless doors, the coupé adopts the design of the Concept Style Coupé into series production. The newcomer features a radar-based braking system (COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST) as standard which is able to warn the driver of an obstacle from a speed of 7 km/h and to initiate precision braking when the driver steps on the brake pedal. The new CLA is available for ordering with immediate effect and will be delivered to dealerships in April. Prices begin at 28,977 euros for the CLA 180.
In keeping with its sporty positioning, the CLA is available with high-torque turbo engines rated at up to 155 kW (211 hp), sports suspension and 4MATIC all-wheel drive. The technical highlights of this new design icon include a new world record in aerodynamics for series production automobiles (Cd value: 0.22) and numerous driving assistance systems, including advanced COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST.
Following a brief appearance on the eve of the NAIAS in Detroit (14 to 27 January 2013), the CLA will have its official world premiere at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin (15 to 18 January 2013). The new CLA is available for ordering with immediate effect and will be delivered to dealerships in April.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage are a series of hand built sports cars from the British manufacturer Aston Martin. Aston Martin has previously used the "Vantage" name on high performance variants of their existing GT models, notably on the Virage-based car of the 1990s. The modern car, in contrast, is the leanest and most agile car in Aston's lineup. As such, it is intended as a more focused model to reach out to potential buyers of cars such as the Porsche 911 as well as the exotic sports and GT cars with which Aston Martins traditionally compete.
Jaguar's new XKR-S supercat has quite a pedigree. With a top speed of 174mph and looks to match, it's the quickest Jag to go on sale since the legendary XJ220 supercar -- and the firm's fastest-ever coupé!
Developed by a small team of engineers, the XKR-S benefits from a host of suspension modifications, plus uprated brakes. And the speed limiter has been removed from the 420bhp 4.2-litre supercharged V8, so the model can accelerate far beyond the 155mph cap Jaguar normally places on its cars. Only 200 examples will be available worldwide, with 50 in the UK. At £79,995, the Jag costs £9,000 more than the XKR on which it's based, so it's sure to be exclusive -- and has the looks to match.
Every model is painted in Ultimate Black and fitted with new 20-inch forged alloys wearing Pirelli PZero tyres. A neat bodykit comprising a front splitter, rear spoiler and venturi-style lower rear bumper gives even more visual aggression.
Those aero parts reduce drag and help to cut lift, making the new Jag more stable at high speed. Inside, XKR-S branding adorns the steering wheel and seats, while a revised instrument cluster features a fresh speedo to reflect the raised top limit. A Bowers and Wilkins stereo system has been specially tuned for superb sound quality.
