2007 Maserati GranSport MC Victory limited edition

The new 2007 Maserati GranSport MC Victory limited edition sports car celebrates Maserati’s convincing victory in the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup.

Looking like an ordinary luxury sports coupe with an appearance package thrown in for good measure, the new vehicle will probably not stun you with performance numbers (at least, its official zero to 100 kilometers per hour time of 4.7 seconds doesn’t look especially convincing), but, with a total production number limited to just 180 cars (the number elegantly matches the vehicle’s top speed when measured in miles per hour), the new grand tourer has a very high collectability score that will only rise as reckless millionaires from Silicon Valley and Mid-East oil exporting countries will ruin their cars while trying to impress their girlfriends.

2007 Chevrolet Epica to be revealed at Geneva 2006

2007 Chevrolet Epica to be revealed at Geneva 2006

The new 2007 Chevrolet Epica family sedan is going to be officially premiered in Switzerland in a couple of weeks at the upcoming 2006 Geneva Motor Show.

Soon to be offered exclusively for the European drivers that continue to suffer not only from high fuel costs, but can also only dream about American prices for cars with their huge engines and spacious interiors, the new vehicle will be offered with a choice of just two low-displacement diesel engines and will sport pretty Spartan interior finish with lots grey plastic, grey faux leather and grey faux aluminum inserts here and there. Well, while the car with its generic design will certainly fail to impress any person that didn’t live under the rock during the last twenty years, it still delivers a nice combination of relatively low price and just enough comfort features to make your miserable life a tad more bearable.

2008 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid SUV is a go

The long-overdue 2008 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid SUV will, probably, be officially presented to the local public sometime before the end of year 2007. Trying to somehow off-set the huge SUV’s most glaring problem, General Motors will complement its powerful 6.0-liter V8 engine with a pair of electric motors rated at 60kW and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack placed beneath the third row.

Abt Q7 tuning kit for the 2007 Audi Q7 SUV

Abt Q7 tuning kit for the 2007 Audi Q7 SUV

The German tuning studio Abt Sportsline has finally revealed its own, Rammstein-style, personalization program for the 2007 Audi Q7 car-based crossover SUV.

Making the full-size luxury car look even more brutal than its original version, the tuning specialist has also increased power output of the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine that comes with the entry level trim and is absolutely inadequate for the task. With all extra parts installed, you not only get a vehicle that stands out in the rush hour traffic, but will also enjoy a lot more satisfying ride in case you happen to own the aforementioned version of the SUV equipped with a low-displacement oil-burner.
