2014 Audi RS5 DTM


I know i said this year will be a great Motorsports one, BMW has a new car and now Audi steps up the game with an improved RS5 as it follows improved aerodynamics package that includes new mirrors, side-mounted canards and revised rear wheel arches. The car has also been equipped with a honeycomb grille and new air ducts that feed the engine and the brakes.

The DTM regulations are very strict so there's no big changes, just some inter suspension adjustments and most of the other changes will be done before the race.

2014 BMW M4 Coupe DTM


Time to spice things up, as BMW just released their track weapon for this year's DTM Season. It was expected that the new car would be based on the new M4 Coupe, but don't expect many resamblances other than the headlights and tails.

The racer weights as little as 1170kg and it's being powered by a NA V8 engine which develops 480HP and 500NM of torque, i believe this car flies. Transmission magic happens due to a 6speed sequential gearbox, with the help of 2 hydraulic flappy paddles.

Volvo Estate Concept


If you remember the times when Estate cars were only meant to large families, they were specifically being built for being practical, the looks wasn't on top priority list.

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.
