Prior to Geneva's Auto Salon, MINI has revealed near-production Clubman Concept. This right here, is the largest MINI, measuring 4223mm long, 1844mm wide and 1450mm tall. Comparing it with the previous model, this one features four frameless front-hinged doors while the split rear doors have been retained.
The interior looks more conceptual than the exterior, MINI sustains that this is a hint of what we can expect from the future models - premium materials, like real wood, with chrome and alluminium inserts, LCD displays with all sorts of informations.

But, a few years ago, everything changed, the Estate cars have wonderful shapes, they attract even the most critic eye and aren't meant for families only.
This just happened with Volvo, which revealed their Estate Concept, which is based on their new SPA platform (Scalable Product Architecture) - and it looks absolutely gorgeous, just look at that full roof glass panel. Volvo also worked on the spacious interior, with quality materials and live colors.

Jaguar has revealed the Sportbrake version of the XFR-S, that's insane, really, beacuse you get the same 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine delivering 542 bhp and 680 Nm, capable of travelling from 0-100km.h in 4.6s - because kid's car sick is totaly over-rated.

Remember the Hennessey Venom GT that caught everyone's attention with its crazy fast speed? Well, as of now, it's officially the world's fastest car as it hits 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. The Venom GT beats the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which held the previous title with a top speed of 268.86 mph.
Although, it is technically the world's fastest car, it can't receive the title since Gusiness Record requires the average speed from two runs. Since NASA only allowed Hennessey one run, the title was out of reach. The manufacturer also had to have a minimum of 30 cars and Hennessey stated that they will only produce 29 Venom GT's.

Everything you find inside the limousine, there's inside this coupe, with a sporty feeling, the same goes with the engines. For the start we'll have the S500 V8 and in the near future, Mercedes Benz promised the S63 AMG.
