BMW Concept 4 is a clear path of the next-generation BMW M3 and M4

A rendering image of this car first appeared in July this year. From the picture it is clear the direction of the next generation of the BMW M3 and M4. At first we expected the giant radiator grille seen in the virtual drawings will remain just fiction, but it turned out that the company is indeed playing with the idea of delivering its new performance vehicles a double kidney grille.

And now one of the German giant auto manufacturers, BMW presented its new BMW Concept 4 making its debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. This car previews the next-generation 4 Series, M3 and M4.

As quoted from Motor1, overall the look of this car is nice and classy, but it can't be help with the double kidneys shaped grille that looks less proportionate to its front fascia. And furthermore they wrote that it's oversized and does not fit into the overall car design language.

However, the company said that those shape was inspired by its iconic models such as the BMW 328 and 3.0 CSi. The only good news is that this is still a concept and the automaker is probably still testing the waters with this design solution. Who knows, hopefully, the production M3 and M4 would not be getting a similar layout.

"The kidney has always stood for BMW,” Domagoj Dukec, head of design at BMW, says. “The BMW Concept 4 sets them confidently and with high quality like no other vehicle so far. The BMW Concept 4 provides a look at the expressive face of the new 4 Series."

On the other hand, the laser headlights applied are a work of art. The sleek clusters doesn't have a glass that covers them but instead relies on a three-dimensional structure with expossed inner elements. Just below the headlights, BMW places a massive air openings that can provide fresh air intake to the engine compartment and the brakes. The exterior is then given the finishing touches in the stunning Forbidden Red hue, which further emphasizes the dramatic contours of the body.
Adrian van Hooydonk, design director at the BMW Group explained, that the BMW Concept 4 embodies the aesthetic essence of the BMW brand: it connects ideal proportions with a clear, precise design.

There's no technical details currently available but we'd expected a range of turbocharged inline-four- and six-cylinder engines will send power to the rear or optionally all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission system. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BMW BLOG | MOTOR1 | AUTOBLOG]

The Spiders invasion in Maranello on September

As we all know, that Ferrari has scheduled 2 world debuts for its products on this September. Yes, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri had been announced the plan during the Q2 2019 earnings conference of those Italian company some time ago.

Intended to remain a mystery, the Maranello-based premium car manufacturer has not revealed the identity of those two Prancing Horses. However, it's difficult to keep a future product secret these days, especially when the automaker invites potential buyers to see the cars before their official debut was held. Why? Because some of the participants then immediately jump on their social media to share the news.
For example, as quoted from the Instagram account of @trax-x who shared an image containing two paperweights describing the beautiful silhouette of two upcoming Prancing Horses. From the picture, those models are vaguely referred to "V12 Spider" and "V8 Spider." So that's why this September, we call as 'the Spiders invasion in Maranello,' let's look at the videos below:
Then we see them as the droptop versions of 812 Superfast and F8 Tributo. And as quoted in the conversation of the Ferrari Chat forum members which says that the V12-powered model is reportedly called the 'Ferrari 812 GTS,' was revealed on September 9. Then the V8-powered model or the Tributo droptop version called 'Ferrari F8 Spider,' will be revealed officially on September 24.
It seems that the 2019 will be one of the busiest years for the pracing horse logoed auto manufacturer in terms of product launches because the two Spiders follow the SF90 Stradale hybrid and F8 Tributo coupe. Still fresh in our memory when the epic P80/C was launched back on April, although it's not a regular production model because it was developed purely as the one-off and tracks-only car.
Following the release of Spider duo, November will be the month that a new grand tourer is going to revealed, possibly the car will use the V6 hybrid system that we know they've been working on for quite a while.
Further down the line, the Prancing Horses lineup will grow even more to include the company's first SUV called Purosangue. This SUV is planned to arrive in the end of 2022 and will ride on newly developed front-mid-engine vehicle architecture engineered to accommodate a hybrid powertrain. 

Let's wait and see, what the Maranello-based auto manufacturer will reveal in the near future. Or might be there're rain of bucks waiting for us. Just kidding. Cheer up! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FERRARI | MOTOR1 | CAR ADVICE | FERRARI CHAT]

The most extreme Pagani Huayra variant to date

Some time ago Pagani Automobili reportedly was developing a new Huayra variant, but at that time it was believed to be called Huayra Dragon. However, at the end of last week those Italian premium car manufacturer quietly launched one of the most extreme Huayra variants and was named Pagani Huayra 'Imola' during a private ceremony.
Pagani's most extreme Huayra variant to date called 'Imola.' (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lJ8u2X)
These one-of-five limited-edition hypercars deliberately built to pays tribute to the Italy's famous racing circuit. And the car was ordered by Oleg Egorov, the founder and owner of TopCar Design tuning firm and a passionate supercar collector who previously also had a special Zonda nicknamed 'Unica'.
The first unit of 5 Pagani Huayra Imola with the owner, Oleg Egorov. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lGKDkM)
The exterior of this new Huayra is truly something worth seeing. Its exterior appearance is clearly not afraid to be the center of attention, Egorov asked Pagani to wrap the hypercar with bright red-orange accented carbon fiber. This color accented can be found on the front splitter, around the headlights, along side skirts, on the edge of the side air intake, under the hood scoop, and across to the rear diffuser.

Then its carbon sideskirts are also very different from other Huayra, including BC and BC Roadster. And the design inspiration seems to have been taken from several Zonda 760 series with a large scoop hood, high rear wing, and fins. The seven-spoke wheels are different, too. Many of the alterations are highlighted by bright red-orange accents that outline the edgy designs including inside its cabin.

Unfortunately, given the vehicle’s somewhat secretive nature, if there's no official technical details of the car. Even if the AMG-sourced V12 engine is untouched compared to the Huayra Roadster BC, the new Huayra derivative should pump out about 800 horsepower (596 kilowatts) and 774 lbs-feet (1,050 Newton-meters) of torque. Still, we believe some modifications to its engine could give it a bit more power.
What we can find out is that this hypercar will be limited to five units only. And the first unit of this hypercar belongs to Oleg Egorov and the remaining 4 cars are not known who ordered it and whether it will be made similar as the first one or different. And also we don’t know the price Pagani is asking for each one of them. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | AUTOBLOG | MOTOR1]

All-new Malay supercar waiting to launch in the next 2020

Apparently the euphoria of making supercars does not only occur in the established automotive technology countries such as in Europe, America, East Asia or South Asia, but also extends to Southeast Asia. As we have seen since a few years ago countries in Southeast Asia also began to build their respective supercars.
Bufori CS production car set for 2020 debut. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2jVPGwZ)
History has recorded that in 2013 Indonesia been pioneered the creation of an electric powered sportscar in the region through the Selo sportscar model. Then followed the Philippines made its first super car, named the FAA Aurelio in 2014.

Next there's Singapore which started building Vanda Dendrobium, an electric powered supercar in 2016. But all the supercar or sportscar models mentioned above may only have reached the concept stage only and then never been heard again their existences till now.

Now it's Malaysia's turn, which is also rumored to be preparing its first supercar. Yes, through an automotive company headquartered in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur named Bufori Motor Car Company (BMCC). The car whose entire production process is carried out domestically, has the name Bufori CS, and is ready to launch early 2020 (actually the car has been designed since ten years ago).

From its exterior form, at first glance this Malay supercar has a look that is somewhat unique and unlike most supercars. The Bufori CS design is designed as a two-door coupe with curved body that at first glance make it look like a classic coupe.
Right side view of Bufori CS prototype car. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2jVPGwZ)
Dimensionally, Bufori CS has a length of 4,555 mm, width of 1,950 mm, and wheelbase of 2,620 mm. With a front grille that is made larger and resembles a beehive. Then the body curves and details on the back of it similar to Toyota Supra or BMW Z4. And the entire body structure of the car is supported strongly on a lightweight monocoque chassis made of Kevlar carbon composite.

In its cabin, Bufori CS uses the Sabelt CF racing seat, and is equipped with a 7-inch infotainment screen. The details of this cabin look very similar to the Fiat Chrysler, this is seen in the gear shift lever is very similar to the Jeep and the center console and the AC is similar to the Chrysler 300.

Holds status as a supercar, making its mechanical composition was not kidding, even Malaysians call it a monster car. It's reasonable, because for the highest version, the Bufori CS8 uses a Chrysler V8 6.4L Hemi Supercharged engine, which is capable of spewing power up to 750 horsepower and peak torque of 1,000 Newton meters.

Whereas on the standard variant uses a 2.6L naturally aspirated V6 engine that offers power of 320 horsepower. And reportedly later after being produced, it is possible that Bufori CS will be installed the turbocharge devices so the amount of power spewing able to increase up to 500 hp.

Then those engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission system, thus making the supercar reportedly able to accelerate from zero to 100 kph in just 3.5 seconds, while the maximum speed reaches 320 kilometers per hour.

To strengthen its premium car impression, Bufori CS applies a 19-inch multi-spoke rim combined with the Brembo's braking system in contrasting colors. 

To maintain control and safety when driving, Bufori also embed electronic braking force features, electronic balance system, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping support, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear vehicle alert, reverse camera, and 2 airbags.
The plans, the Malay supercar start on sale in 2020. However, there is no official information from the company regarding the selling price to be offered. However, Bufori CS will most likely not be more expensive than the Japanese or European made supercar of the same-class. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BUFORI | PAULTAN]

The world's first supercapacitor vehicle

Now, we're continuing our discussion of the previous article. Lamborghini finally revealed its first hybrid supercar candidate to be shown off at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show next September 12-22.

That Italian supercar manufacturer officially calls it the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, which is predicted to be the company future car to greets the electrification era. Although carrying a hybrid powertrain, but Lamborghini's DNA inside Sián does not fade away.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 has been shown to several customers through the Unica app before it was officially released at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2m2N2q1)
The name 'Sián' itself is taken in Italian with the Bolognese dialect means 'lightning.' And lightning can be interpreted as Lamborgini's rapid movements in creating sports cars in the electrification era like today. The Sián also described how's the look of Lamborghini cars in the future.

And the Sián code name 'FKP 37' was taken in honor of Ferdinand K Piech who was born in 1937. He has played an important role in the acquisition of the Italian supercar brand into the VW group in 1998.

In terms of design, Lamborghini Sián is clearly seen taking most of the design of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Concept. Although not entirely similar to that concept, but Sián comes with more aggressive line indentations so that the ideal form of a supercar can be seen of it.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 was officially released at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lMFkQC)
"The fastest Lamborghini must be a visual and symphonic feast, as remarkable to those who see it pass by as those privileged to drive it," Mitja Borkert, Head of Design at Lamborghini, explains. "It takes inspiration from the Countach, but the Sián is a futuristic icon, not retrospective."
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 represents the first step in Lamborghini’s route to electrification and expedites the company's next-generation V12 engine. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lAqahk)
Sián will carry a new V12 engine and 48 Volt electric motor so that it can produce such big enough power. The V12 engine developed by the raging bull logoed auto manufacturer on the Sián was able to blast 785 hp of power as well as touted as the largest in the history of those Italian premium car manufacturers.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 relies on a 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine plus a 48-volt the mild-hybrid system, which adds 34 horsepower for a grand total of 819 hp. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lAqahk)
Lamborghini Sián also gets an additional 34 horsepower from an electric motor. So that in total the car has a power equivalent to 819 horsepower. The supercar is claimed to be able to drive up to a maximum speed of more than 350 kph. The combination of a V12 engine and an electric motor makes the Sián accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in less than 2.8 seconds.

Uniquely Sián does not use batteries like other hybrid cars, but instead the Lamborghini Sián electric system uses a supercapacitor which is claimed to provide a greater energy supply than ordinary batteries.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 can scorch to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed 'over 350kph'. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2m2N2q1)
Yes, the supercapacitor is not like a battery, because it can be charged immediately in a faster time and also the energy harvesting can be done during the vehicle braking process. Supercapacitor also does not run out of capacity as easily as the batteries generally. So it can be used in millions of times of power recharging.
Reportedly, the supercar is produced in limited quantities, with only 63 units world wide, and sold with prices ranging from the US. $2.5 million (approx £2 million/€2.2 million) or around Rp.35.6 billion. 

But, there's bad news for You who would be interested to have this supercar… Now, all of them have already been sold out. No to forget go to Frankfurt if You wanna see the Sián in its real shaped. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBORGHINI | MOTOR1]

Previously, the 2020 Karma Revero GT along with another two electric vehicles of the same company, ie. the Karma SC1 Vision Concept and Karma Pininfarina GT have been launched at 2019 Shanghai Auto Show in April 2019.

And now, those three of Karma Automotive cars also have been managed debut in North America at the 2019 Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach from August 15 to 18.
As quoted of Dlmag, Karma Automotive is planning to build 12,000 to 13,000 cars each year in their California plant. The new Revero will be arriving for availability in the 4th quarter of 2019. While Karma is yet to release pricing and specs, we expect the Revero GT to start around $135,000 to $140,000 when it officially goes on sale. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DLMAG | FORBES | POST OAK MOTOR CAR]

Ahead of its debut, the latest Lamborghini figure is leaked little by little

According to Lamborghini, the Aventador figure is its mainstay model that carries the company characteristics and is very identical to the figure of a mid-engine V12 hypercar. Today the hypercar has reached a mature ages, but the successor wouldn't launch yet in the near future.
Is this the figure of 'LB48H' coded hypercar which not have the name yet? Rumours said, it to be given a name Lamborghini Sián. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2krGHUD)
This is contrary to what is widely circulated in cyberspace, that currently the raging bull logoed premium car company is preparing a new hypercar. After some time ago, the company showing a teaser image through its official Tweeter account. And on last August, the company also giving a new teaser video through its official Instagram account.
Furthermore, the new hypercar figure is increasingly revealed little by little, after it leaked at Lamborghini Unica, a smartphone application specifically dedicated to the Lamborghini owners. According to rumors, this car will be named Lamborghini Sián. If this name is correct, sounds a little less fierce right? But because Lamborghini usually takes the bull name, maybe Sián is the name of one of the special bulls. Who knows?
For you, the purist Lamborghini fans, even if the Sián is not a bull's name, you should no need to feel disappointed. Because indeed Lamborghini does not always use the bull name for its products. For example, you might be remember to the Lamborghini Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murcielago.

However, what is familiar with the figure of Lamborghini Sián is its design style, which seems so clearly inspired by the Lamborghini Terzo Millenio concept car. Then the details of Lamborghini Sián include the door design which also flows the air into the side air vents which are somewhat square in shape.
The ventilation is sharp, looks like the one in Centenario. Similarly, the air fins behind the upright and sharp. Then the Aventador and Huracan taillights which have the shape of the letter "Y" are replaced with new hexagon-shaped lights, which are commonly found in a modern Lamborghini.

As reported from The Drive that the Lamborghini Sián engine still uses a 6,500 cc V12 engine based of the Aventador, that means at least 770 PS of power and 720 Nm of torque has been obtained. It seems that no turbocharged devices will be installed on it, but this car is said to be using a hybrid system that can provide extra power of 30 PS from the electric motors. Looking at the number 30 PS is very small for a Lamborghini indeed. But if that's true, then the power combination can reach 800 PS.
Does not stop here, its sensation then continues. These LB48H coded hypercar which not have the name yet reportedly built in limited number, ie 63 units only, and sold with prices ranging from US. $2.5 million (approx £2 million/€2.2 million) or around Rp.35.6 billion. But, there's a bad news for You who would interested to have this hypercar… Now, all of them have already been sold out.
Now, by the many teaser images, video coming out and all-about from the Italian marque, reports of the hybrid hypercar aren't far-fetched at this point, but who knows? And now, let's wait until its launching time is come in Frankfurt starting on September 12, 2019. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1 | THE DRIVE]
