12 06 2009

One of the few tuning companies who have decided to develop a stylish body kit parts for Toyota SUV Land Cruiser 4 × 4, a Japanese car tuner Wald International. Black Bison elegant body kit for the current generation Land Cruiser, which appeared in 2007, gives a fairly luxurious SUV aggressive type.

Nevertheless the engineers at Wald managed to technique their Land Cruiser in both a muscular and grand manner. The new front jumbo with integrated fog lamps brushwood out in a particularly bold way that is matched by the new sidesills. The rear mammoth incorporates the same tangle as seen at the front, while also edifice in new reflectors and distance for the interestingly shaped courtyard-exhaust. Blacked-out Mahora M11C 20-inch wheels harmonize the paint appealing well, but we like the five-cape chrome-look wheels for the added diverge. If there is something that can be aloof, it is the rear spoiler, which looks very out of place.

New 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Leaked: First Official Photos

24 01 2009

First official images of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe have been non-officially leaked on the web. Just like the E-Class Sedan that made its entrance on the web well before the formal unveiling, the Coupe story of the Merc’s executive saloon that will swap the CLK vehicle and convertible models has been ingloriously naked through a sequence of leaked photos that seem to have been scanned from a brochure.

mercedes-e-class-coupe-2010-leaked-img_1

Lots of straight sharp exterior lines and concave/ convex bodywork will establish it as something of a fresh take on the coupe for Mercedes. The front is dominated by a twin-blade chromed grille with a huge Mercedes-Benz three-point star plastered over it. The lower grille features a sporty mesh design flanked by two LED slits on both sides. Overall it gives the impression of either an AMG model or AMG kit. We are inclined to choose the latter because of the two tailpipes instead of four as found in the current CLK 63 AMG. This car even features an integrated rear diffuser and what appears to be rear LED lights.

The new E-Class has grown in size, length and width for more comfort and interior space.

25 11 2008

This time the Porsche 998 – the next-gen 911er, has been spied prancing around in test mule camo.  Model changes are at the legendary 911er always a tricky thing. Innovations must be – without, however, the fans of the brand deterred.
