1. Mercedes-Benz SL Maritime by Graf Weckerle


    When you say Graf Weckerle you automatically images some very cool, yet individual and exclusive tuning packages. And of course that this latest one, offered for the Mercedes SL500 is no exception. The package features a maritime inspiration through both the exterior and interior of the car, while the interior features pure 750 white gold elements.

    For the exterior the most important changes are of course the wheels This time the tuner opted for a new set of 20” Collection Sport forged performance wheels made out of a special rotation-forged titanium-aluminum alloy. The wheels are featuring a very cool aluminum effect combined with a special white coating on the disc and a Graf Weckerle brand logo on the center cap. This new set of wheels has been combined with a very cool Graf Weckerle navy blue exterior paint.

    The interior continues with the same maritime theme thanks to its Graf Weckerle navy blue leather contrasting with white stitching and piping. But the most amazing features are the Graf Weckerle brand emblems integrated into the original seat design and made of pure 750 white gold.

    No changes have been made under the hood at this point, but the tuner announced that an optimized and remapped ECU in combination with a stainless steel sports exhaust system is currently being developed.

  7. 2007 Saturn Sky Redline

    2007 Saturn Sky Redline
    2007 Saturn Sky Redline - 2007 New Cars - Automobile Magazine
    The Saturn Sky Redline adds some power to an already attractive package.

    A 47 percent power bump and a 57 percent torque boost are just the nudges needed to rev the Saturn Sky to the Red Line. A 2.0-liter version of General Motors’ Ecotec four-cylinder roused by a dual-scroll intercooled turbo, direct injection, and variable valve timing delivers a hunky 260 hp. Improved driveline mounting (similar to the Mazda MX-5’s scheme), a sport suspension damped by Bilstein, ABS, stability control, and upgraded tires take the already capable chassis up a notch. But instead of tuning this Sky to run wild with BMWs and Porsches, Saturn focused on polishing its rough edges. The turbo engine is a torquer, not a spinner, so the Red Line delivers thrust immediately, without waiting for the tach needle to find a sweet spot. The new third gear in the manual box is a more useful ratio, and the optional five-speed automatic is smart enough to downshift during hard braking into a corner. The turbo engine not only speaks more softly than the normally aspirated four-cylinder, it also delivers better fuel mileage. While a couple of clouds still hang over the Sky—a storage-shy cockpit and a clunky convertible top—the arrival of the Red Line is convincing proof that polishing works.

    In an attempt to move away from its also-ran role in the Asian car industry, Suzuki has been pushing hard over the past year with ew models, including the Grand Vitara mid-size SUV, the bigger XL7, and the SX4 shown above. The SX4 offers the type of boxy, spacious design that is becoming de rigueur for the small-car segment, but adds all-wheel drive, filling a void left by the many smaller 4X4s that have bulked up.

The SX4 is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC in-line four mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. We haven’t driven the SX4 yet, but check back closer to the on-sale date this fall to see if the small Suzuki has what it takes to beat the big guys.

    The 2010 Lexus HS250h is the brand’s first distinct hybrid model, it slots between the IS and the ES.

    Lexus hybrids have traditionally been more about no-compromise performance than pure fuel economy. That looks like it’s about to change with the 2010 HS250h, the brand’s first distinct hybrid model.
