Next generation BMW 5 Series to get twin-turbo V-8

BMW has decided to use the twin-turbo V8 engine in their next generation 5 series, due to be released most likely in 2010. Having a twin-turbo V8 engine that will push around 400 horsepower, which is amazing and will make any BMW fan amazed, you can get that much power almost like an M5, for relatively cheaper. I hope BMW does update the interior to compete with Audi's nice interior.[Source:BMW Blog

2010 Bentley Arnage [Spied]

bentley2.jpgSpy photographers have captured the Bentley's updated Arnage. The next-generation Arnage isn't slated to hit the market until 2010, but Bentley execs reportedly want to create a true competitor to Rolls Royce's offerings and are getting a head start on the project. It is also possible that Bentley could offer its next-generation Arnage T with the Bugatti Veyron's quad-turbocharged W16 engine. Last year, Bentley fitted an Arnage prototype with Bugatti's W16 engine proving how serious they are. When the next-generation Arnage finally hits the market in 2010, look for prices to be in the neighborhood of $400,000.[Source:Left Lane News

Preview: 2011 BMW 6-series coupe and cabrio

BMW's next generation 6-series coupe and cabrio won't be available until late 2010, however we can get a pretty accurate look at how it will look thanks to these renderings. The new design is expected to grow in size and feature a sportier design and also sit lower than the current out going model.  There are rumors the car will be offered with two different versions, a more luxurious GT and an aggressive sports model. The engine is unfortunately supposed to carry over untouched, but the new M6 will get a twin turbo V-10 and dual clutch transmission.[Source:Motor Authority]

2009 BMW 7 Series interior snapped

 We finally have what appears to be a spy shot of the new 7's interior. I'm glad to see the gear shifter back in the center where it belongs and not the other way they had it like a Suburban. It seems to look like an ordinary 7-series, I'm not too worried about how it looks yet because it isn't a production model. Hopefully BMW does something about the I-drive system.[Source:Auto Blog]
