The New Face of Cars in 2008

Lamboghini
Aston Martin. V8 Vantage N24 . This year Ford sold Aston martin to a group of business men for $900 Million. This here is a racing version of its V8 Vantage called the N24, based on the V8 Vantage that competed in the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race—hence the name. We dont know if any changes will be made to Aston Martin by its new owners.
2008 Cadillac CTS.
The CTS continues to advance the design language for GM’s premium brand into the 2008 model year. With smoothed edges and a sculpted hood, the new CTS gets a larger grille inspired by the Cadillac Sixteen concept from a few years ago. The 2008 CTS is two inches wider, which gives the new model a more planted look as well as making room for an all-wheel drive version. The interior has been completely redone with a new center stack, instrument panel and seats that incorporate a “thin seat” technology that provides more usable space. Additional use of LED for ambient lighting provides a dramatic effect.


2008 BMW M3


After much anticipation among the motoring enthusiast crowd, the next generation of BMW’s legendary M3 has finally been revealed. And for the first time in its 15-year history the M3 will get V8 power. Under the bulging hood will lurk a 4.0-liter V8 engine producing 420 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission rather than the controversial sequential manual gearbox (SMG). BMW claims 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds with a governed top speed of 155 mph. The bold fender flares, air intakes, side sills and discreet rear spoiler will help differentiate the M3 from the standard 3-Series. The M3 will also be the first in the segment with a carbon fiber reinforced roof for greater rigidity and a lower center of gravity.



2008 Bentley Brooklands


The Brooklands—named for the British racetrack that celebrates its 100th anniversary this year—is a traditional Bentley touring coupe. Under this impressive vehicle's very long hood resides the most powerful V8 engine ever from Bentley. The twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 pumps out 530 horsepower and an amazing 775 lb-ft of torque which should move this car along at an exhilarating pace. As expected, the Brooklands boasts a sumptuous interior with the highest quality leather and wood trim. Only 550 will ever be built.


2008 Audi S5


The 2008 model year began with a bang when the German automaker revealed its first-ever supercar at the 2006 Paris Motor Show. The all-new 2008 R8 sports a 420-horsepower 4.2-liter aluminum V8 engine located just behind the driver. The R8 achieves 62mph in less than five seconds. And it's no surprise that power goes to all four wheels via the company’s legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system. The R8 arrives later this year, priced around $130,000. For something a little more down to earth, later this year Audi will come to market with the all-new A5 coupe and its more powerful sibling, the S5. With Audi's signature trapezoidal grille, the new 4-seat coupes fit into the lineup between the A4 / S4 and the A6 / S6. Audi has also redesigned its iconic TT coupe and roadster. A difficult vehicle to redesign given its unique styling, Audi has done an excellent job evolving the look while keeping the TT completely recognizable. Available, of course, with quattro all-wheel drive, the TT gets its motivation from either a 200-horsepower 2.0-liter engine or a 250-horsepower V6.
