Having recently unveiled its all-new C-Class Estate, Mercedes-Benz lets go of the long list of specifications to its 2015 luxury wagon. With its main feature being added cargo room, next year’s model appears 96mm longer and 40mm wider with an 80mm longer wheelbase at 140 pounds lighter when compared to its predecessor, thus offering more leg, shoulder, elbow and head-room to its rear-seat passengers.
Presented with the opportunity to personally photograph the 2014 Audi A7 TDI earlier this year, we now get a glimpse of next year’s rendition and its sportier S series upgrade. For those that enjoy the current model and its sleek lines, you’ll be happy to know that little will change going into 2015. The most noticeable of alterations is seen in its headlights, which will feature a more angular, piercing shape with its signature LED border in tact.
In stark contrast to the insanely powerful Pininfarina-assisted Gran Lusso Coupe BMW unveiled at last year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, this year’s offerings offerings from the German automaker have been marked by an industrially-inclined motorcycle and, now, a specially-designed MINI: the Superleggera Vision.
Dodge has officially unveiled its new Challenger SRT Hellcat, the most powerful Challenger to date from the automaker. Powered by a 6.2L Hemi V8, the Hellcat will be have over 600 horsepower at its disposal. The car will come with a number of driving modes best suited for different surfaces and situations, and power will be channeled through either a six-speed manual gearbox or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Interestingly enough, the car will come with two sets of keys: a red key that unlocks the full power of the car and a black key that only unlocks some of the 600+ horses. Externally, the car boasts a number of modifications including a hood scoop, aerodynamic package, and a vertical-split grille. Expect the Hellcat to be available towards the end of this year.
