Bond may have license to kill, but he may never have the license to spy on the upcoming BMW M2 series. We have seen many spy shots of the new BMW M2, which is going to succeed the previous BMW 1 M series. One of those shots is a cool spy shot of the car driven on the snow. However, a photo of M2 is surfaced over a week ago on BMW blog in which the driver was using is believed to be using a dual clutch transmission. The driver in the photo seems to be using a shift pedal to operate transmission.

Koenigsegg’s Unconventional Thinking

Koenigsegg has always made crazy cars full of crazy technology, like engines with no camshafts, but this might be the most insane car on the planet. Period. The Regera had a hybrid electric power train that produces a total of around 1800hp. 1100hp which comes from Koenigsegg’s 5.0 twin turbo V8, is complimented by a further 700hp from 3 electric motors, one mated to the transmission, and one to each rear wheel. All this means that this car is rear wheel drive. Let me run that by you again, upwards of 1800hp through the rear wheels and the rear wheels only. I’ll let that soak in.

More Powerful Jaguar F-Type Spotted

With a range of engines that include 2 supercharged V6s and a supercharged V8, the gorgeous Jaguar F-Type is not a car that you might think of needing more power. Video reviews of the V8 F-Type in particular usually include many smoky burnouts and drifts. So when news broke this week that a new, more powerful version was spotted testing at the Nurburgring, it was a bit of a surprise.

Today is a sad day in the automotive sphere. As you are probably already aware, the BBC has issued a statement today about the “fracas” that Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson was involved in on March 4th.

Although Clarkson should have known better than to  verbally and physically assault Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon, let’s not focus on his wrongdoing, instead let’s take a look at why he is loved by automotive enthusiasts around the globe.
