2014 BMW Z4 offers minor refinements with a majorly orange wrapper

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

The redesigned BMW Z4 was rolled out onto the show floor at the Detroit Auto Show, with the example in question being an sDrive35is variant, with the just-less-than-screaming Hyper Orange Package. The exclusive colorway includes the metallic orange paintjob, as well as trim-specific seats, stitching and accents for the interior. More importantly, the 35is driveline means that you’ll find a high-output version of the turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 engine, here outputting 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and a 7-speed DCT gearbox.

Two slightly less ferociously powered versions of the Z4 will be available for the new model year, too (both familiar). The Z4 sDrive35i is good for 300 hp and 300 lb-ft, while the still-potent sDrive28i features a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder making 240 hp and 260 lb-ft.

You’ll fine some more details about the 2014 BMW Z4 in our original news story about the model here, or by scrolling down to read the full BMW press release.

Read This: Auto Extremist advocates for Corvette as brand with multiple models [w/poll]

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , , , ,

Corvette History - models from every generation through C7

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo’s gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it’s time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM’s technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.

Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM’s troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that’s slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?

Lucra LC470 is the wildest car you’ve never heard of

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

It may very well be that you’ve never heard of boutique carmaker Lucra, nor its rather incredible LC470 roadster, but after watching this recent Motor Trend video detailing the car, you’ll probably want to learn more.

Green Goblin styling to the side for a moment, a curb weight of less than 2,000 pounds and output of more than 600 horsepower are both impressive stats. Perhaps more impressive is the sound that the blistering car makes when driven in anger.

Click below
, watch, drool and enjoy. We’ll be busy on our end, too, trying to get the Lucra folks on the phone about a test drive, and inquiring about the still-more-bonkers car they’re apparently planning for release this summer.

BMW reveals updated 2014 Z4 roadster

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

BMW fans are looking forward to the Detroit Auto Show to get a live look at the new 4 Series Concept and the exciting M6 Gran Coupe, but the show will also be used to introduce the 2014 BMW Z4.

At first glance, there’s nothing really new here. A trained eye will catch updates like the restyled headlights, fascias and fender vents, but overall, the styling of the sporty little roadster remains the same. The exterior of the car does add three new metallic colors including Mineral Grey, Glacier Silver and Valencia Orange. The big news for US buyers is the addition of the Hyper Orange Package on cars with the Valencia Orange exterior paint, which adds plenty of orange accents on the interior including Alcantara door inserts and contrasting seat stitching, but no pricing has been announced.

While all of the changes to the US-spec Z4 are aesthetic, the European version of the car will be getting a new entry-level model called the Z4 sDrive18i. Using the same twin-turbo 2.0-liter I4 as the Z4 sDrive28i, this engine is detuned to 156 horsepower (down from 240 hp in the sDrive28i), and it is also paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Scroll down for the 2014 Z4 press release.

First 2014 Chevrolet Corvette to be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson for charity?

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Something big is coming to the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. You can already read the (mostly) complete roster of vehicles that will be up for grabs at the annual event, and each item on the docket offers complete information as to year, make, model and a full description of the item.

But then there’s lot No. 3016: Not a single bit of information is given, except that the vehicle is a Chevrolet, and that it’s a “piece of Chevy history.” All proceeds from this “special Chevrolet model” will be donated to the Center for Creative Studies, and the auction takes place at 8:30 PM on Saturday, January 19.

This wouldn’t be the first big model to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event. Back in June, the first production 2013 SRT Viper was sold for $300,000, and General Motors has historically used the event to auction off and even debut special edition Corvette models. Given the fact that the Viper auction netted just over $200,000 more than the car’s list price, a similar auction with the highly anticipated C7 Corvette could bring in some seriously big bucks.

We’ll be seeing the 2014 Corvette for the first time on January 13 – the night before the first press day of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and the Barrett-Jackson auction takes place just six days later.
