The DS5 is available from launch with a selection of 4 refined and productive Euro V engines – THP 200, e-HDi 110, HDi 160 and the new 200bhp diesel electric Hybrid4.

The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported January sales of 19,739 vehicles, an increase of 5.8 percent from the 18,656 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago.
“The January results are the springboard for a year that will be full of new model launches beginning with the arrival of the sixth generation 3 Series in mid-February” said BMW of North America President and CEO Ludwig Willisch. “Nationwide, inventories are low after the extraordinary sales in December and we’re replenishing our dealers as fast as we can to meet the strong demand for our vehicles.”

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 3.1 percent in January for a total of 16,405 compared to 15,905 vehicles sold in January, 2011.
In January, best performing vehicles include the X3 SAV – officially on sale in the U.S. for one year – up 56.9 percent to 1,687 units; the 6 Series, up 392.8 percent to 409 units and the 7 Series, up 56.1 percent to 977 units.

There is more news coming out today from Lamborghini in concern of the Italian firm’s future plans right after its CEO Stephan Winkelmann rejected the use of turbocharged engines at least right up until the end of the decade, earlier this week.
Today, we discovered that a senior source at Lamborghini’s parent business, Audi, has confirmed reports on the growth of a luxury SUV concept that is pegged to make its world premiere at the Beijing motor present in late April.
“I can not comment in detail but the speculation in the press is largely right,” an Audi manager was quoted as saying by Autoweek when questioned about rumors concerning a Lamborghini SUV research.
It is believed that Lamborghini will show the SUV concept to gauge public reaction to a possible successor to the Countach-powered LM002 of the late 1980s.
The news contradicts Winkelmann’s prior statements that the organization wasn’t interested in an SUV.
Audi of America has released a extremely funny industrial video. A vampire party is going just alright until finally the arriving of the particular package – container with + blood.
Sadly, the package deal is carried by the new A7 (S-line) outfitted with Audi LED headlights bringing “Daylight, now in a headlight.” As the manufacturer stated.
The celebration is more than!
The new 2012 Audi A7 is priced from $ 59 250, excluding the 875 USD destination charge, taxes, title, possibilities, and dealer charges. It comes with fantastic common equipment and a mighty three. liter TFSI supercharged V6 delivering 310PS (228 kW) and 440Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque.
Appreciate the video!
Even the most logistically challenged individuals would have a hard time getting lost on the storied tri-oval Daytona superspeedway; keep turning left, and eventually you’ll get back to the strip of checkered pavement that marks the start/finish line.
But a few times a year, the oval folds back in on itself between the front stretch and first corner to create a suitably challenging road circuit for the Grand-Am series. The twisting diversion winds its way through the infield, transforming the 2.5-mile high-banked tri-oval into a 3.56-mile road course. Follow it long enough and you’ll still find your way home, but only after navigating several additional (left and right) corners to get there. Sounds like fun, no?
To find out the most expedient way around the circuit, we went right to the top, recruiting four-time Daytona champion Scott Pruett and BMW Performance Driving School instructor Mike Renner as our personal tour guides. Renner slides us around the wet track in a 3-series coupe and Pruett hammers the dry course in an M3. Ride along with us in the clips below.
