Article by Lijo Mathai
Hyundai Veloster is a name which would ring bells in many minds as being an affordable sports coupe. The SEMA show is something wherein all the manufacturers showcase their souped up variants with extra power plus bodywork to match it. The already sporty Veloster would now come with more power, however, the power quotient that would be bumped up is relatively unknown territory. What is confirmed for the Veloster is that it would have exquisite body work working in its favor plus interiors to die for. As far as we have gleaned the information, there would be an all new exhaust system with a higher emphasis towards the exhaust note rather than aesthetics. Improved brakes going under the name of [...]

BMW, First Drive
Article by Lijo Mathai
It was in 1984 that BMW Motors thought of introducing the BMW M5 to the world. Little did it know that this car would be a huge success, not just in Germany but also in different parts of the world. The first gen BMW M5 was codenamed as E28 and this was the most successful model of the M5 with an exclusivity wrapped around it. The latter part is due to the fact that only 2135 models were built. A little known fact or a widely known one, whichever way we look at it is that BMW was actively involved in MotorSports and this thought somehow percolated down to the BMW M5’s next generation preparations. Then came the roar for cleaner, more efficient and lesser cylindered cars. In comes the 2012 BMW [...]

Bentley cleared up all these confusions by saying that they believe in serving to requesting customers and not just build cars for the masses. There have been many requests to Bentley to come up with an even longer version of the Bentley Mulsanne and also ones being powered by the sticky fuel. Wolfgang Durheimer, Bentley’s boss, recently said that the [...]

2012 Buick Regal GS first drive

First Drive
Article by Lijo Mathai
Buick, GM’s division in US is more of a brand builder rather than the volumes raker that the company expects it to be. Infact, Buick cars are considered in the same lines as the ones named as Acura or Lexus. The only thing is that they aren’t considered last in the series when any customer wants to actually buy a luxury car. The badge does really count, it seems. With an unbiased view of the things, we set out for the first drive of the 2012 Buick Regal GS. It was recently that we read an announcement from GM that the old Regal that they had would be souped up with a performance variant and it was to be badged as the GS variant. The overall stance of the vehicle presents itself with the image [...]
