    Finally, Koenigsegg One:1 Images Leaked! (PHOTOS)

    It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the first glimpse of the elusive Koenigsegg One:1.

    The render here predicted what the car would look like; but we needn’t wonder any longer. So how close was this artist’s rendering?

    render

    Past: Future.  Man: Machine. Power: Weight. And so on. Setting aside it’s peculiar name, it looks like an absolute beast.

    If looks weren’t enough to have you sold, how about the specs? It boasts 1340hp, 2g cornering, 600kg downforce, with 1340kg curb weight and driver. Absolutely absurd.

    The official teaser video is below, even if these leaked images beat them to the punch.

    Baby Rescued By Drivers On Miami Expressway (PHOTOS)

    Baby Rescued On Miami Expressway (PHOTOS)

    Traffic came to a halt on the Dolphin Expressway in Miami on Thursday night when 37-year-old Pamela Rauseo stopped her SUV, jumped out and cried for help.

    In her arms was her nephew, 5-month-old Sebastian de la Cruz — and he wasn’t breathing.

    Al Diaz, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for the Miami Herald, happened to be driving behind the woman.

    “A woman pops out of the car and starts screaming ‘My baby can’t breathe! My baby can’t breathe! Call 911!’ So I got out of my car and ran over to help her,” Diaz told CBSMiami.

    “As a photojournalist you want to capture these images, but as a human being you want to get help,” he told the New York Daily News.

    He managed to do both.

    As Rauseo performed CPR, Diaz ran through traffic until he found Officer Amauris Bastidas of the Sweetwater Police Department. A bystander, Lucila Godoy, left her 3-year-old son in her own car to offer help. Capt. Anthony Trim and Lt. Alvaro Tonanez with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s hazardous materials unit also joined in the rescue as Diaz snapped these dramatic photos.

    Little Sebastian was born prematurely and has respiratory problems, according to the Herald. He’s now in stable condition at a Miami hospital.

    Lexus RC F Join With Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue To Create Sexiest Car Ad Ever! (VIDEO)

    If there is one way to get a guys attention it is to put a hot car with a hot girl and Lexus have taken note by creating one of the hottest car commercials ever for their RC F model.

    Lexus has sponsored the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition with four pages in the magazine in addition to a presence at the launch events in New York and Florida. The Japanese automaker also plans on producing plenty of digital content with the magazine next month, though it’s given us a preview of what to expect.

    In addition to the advertising and sponsorship of the Swimsuit edition, Lexus will be taking advantage of the app called Aurasma, which recognizes photos. When the app recognizes the car, it will launch a digital video experience. In other words, users will be able to take a static photo and turn it into a full digital experience on their smartphones or tablets.

    All of the moves in the marketing world will be complemented by a redesign of the automaker’s website, but for now, enjoy the video Lexus has shared with us featuring a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked Images!

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked Images

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Revealed In Leaked ImagesImages of BMW’s brand new M cars, the M3 Saloon and M4 Coupe hit the web ahead of the official reveal.

    Yesterday BMW dropped a totally unrevealing teaser video of its new M models, the M3 saloon and M4 coupe. This annoyed us, because the new M3 and M4 have been coming for the past five months. There were ‘concept’ cars, technical details released and hundreds of spy images and videos. And while  BMW still haven’t revealed any official details, we can now at least stare at the pair without any swirly car camouflage hiding their lines. And as far as things to stare at go, the new M cars are not bad at all, are they?

    The M3 is the cooler car in our opinion, its behind is just – for want of a better word – bangin’. The rear wheel arches are so wide and awesome, the quad exhaust pipes are racy, the carbon roof is exquisite and the front end is chiselled and nice. And in this light blue hue, it looks pretty much perfect. We likey.

    The M4 coupe is no Ugly Betty, but compared to the M3 Saloon it looks a bit…predictable. There is of course a very good reason for that, because it looks exactly the same as the M4 Concept that BMW showed a few months ago. It’s even the same colour. OK, the exhausts are a slightly different shape to those of the concept and it hasn’t got a carbon splitter at the front, but if you placed the two cars next to each other you’d swear they were identical.

    As for what’s beneath the metal, both cars use a 3.0liter twin turbo straight six engine producing around 430hp, which is hooked up to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox (or six-speed manual) sending drive to the rear wheels. Power is distributed across the rear axle via a clever active ‘M’ differential – this aids stability and driftability.

    Apparently the official details will come out on Thursday so stay tuned for more juicy M3 and M4 news.

    This Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 Concept Looks Incredible (PHOTOS)

    Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 Concept Photos

    Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 Concept PhotosThere are so many amazing concept cars flying around the internet getting us car buffs all excited and this Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 Concept is yet another.

    It was rendered up by Grigory Gorin from Tula, Russia. And it is his dream for what the a centenary Aston Martin could look like.

    “The Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 Concept draws its inspiration from the 1935 Ulster and the more recent 2009 One-77. The “VIE” moniker comes from “Vehement, Intelligent, Electro” and the concept is envisioned with fuel cell technology. It has a hydrogen tank installed under the rear suspension and a lithium-ion battery mounted in the center of the car while the battery has been integrated into the roof.

    The artist imagined his creation with a hydrogen-aerial electrochemical generator at the front and with an electric motor within each wheel to provide the car with an all-wheel drive setup. It also has an adjustable independent suspension and a monocoque body structure made from carbon fiber. To top it all off, the concept is conceived with an adjustable transparent glass with opacity control.”

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Teased (VIDEO)

    2015 BMW M3 And M4 Teased (VIDEO)

    BMW tease the highly anticipated 2015 M3 and M4 models in a not-very-revealing video ahead of their Detroit Auto Show unveiling.

    Why must you insist on playing these games BMW!? We’ve been waiting patiently for you to show us the brand new M3 saloon and M4 coupe, and despite it being three long months since you revealed the M4 ‘Concept’ and told us pretty much everything there is to know about the new M cars, we’re STILL waiting to see the finished item.

    Now you’ve dropped a totally unrevealing teaser video. The light show effects in said video are quite cool, they might even give old people seizures, but you don’t actually get to see anything more than a pair of BMW halo-ring headlights! Show us the car damn it.

    Now watch the light show, sorry, M3 and M4 teaser video…

    More will hopefully be revealed at the Detroit Auto Show next month, stay tuned.
