BMW fans are anxiously awaiting tomorrow as the Bavarian carmaker will unveil the next generation of its prestigious 5 Series, codenamed F10. We’ve seen plenty of spy shots with the new model under heavy camouflage, and most people predict that it will borrow from the newest design line, highlighted by models like the 5 Series GT or X1, which we recently test drove.

Now, with one day ahea of schedule, a set official photos revealing just a bit of the model have been leaked on the Internet and, at least in my opinion, showcase a very attractive model, which seems much more beautiful than the previous model, but still reflects aggressiveness.

What do you believe about these new pictures? Share your thoughts through a comment and await the official reveal tomorrow, on November 23.

About a week ago, Mercedes-Benz and Japanese game developer Polyphony Digital revealed that the stunning new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing supercar from the German company will be appearing in upcoming racing simulator Gran Turismo 5, scheduled to appear next year, in March in Japan and later for the rest of the world.

Sadly, the companies only offered photos of a real SLS AMG on the racing circuit, but have now revealed the first in-game screenshots of the new model and a video combining the real and the virtual version of the SLS AMG model. Enjoy the few screenshots and crank up the volume for the video.

Did you manage to get your hands on one of the 20 Lamborghini Reventon models when they was announced at 2007′s Frankfurt Motor Show? Great. Now, for those of you who didn’t or those who want the wind to blow their hair when riding in this road-legal stealth fighter, the Italian supercar manufacturer has unveiled the first pictures of the Roadster version of the Lamborghini Reventon.

Only the pictures have surfaced for now, but it’s safe to say that the primary goal of the engineers was to further improve the car and, of course, chopping its top off. As you can see, all of the major distinguishing features are there, including the peculiarly shaped front and rear bumpers, as well as the 18-inch wheels and custom interior, all contributing to the jet fighter look of the Italian hypercar.

Most likely the mechanics of the prestigious car won’t be changed, as we can expect the same 6.5 liter V12 engine to produce 650 HP (478 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque in order to really get the wind to blow through your hair. The gearbox might be the same six-speed e-gear one which will transfer the power to all of the wheels of the car. With a 0 to 100 km/h or 60 mph time of 3.4 seconds, the max speed will be around 340 km/h or 211 mph.

Be ready to fork out about the same amount of money, 1.2 million Euros or $1,0750,000 for any of the predicted 20 units which will be made.

A few days ago we presented some unmasked spy-shots of the upcoming Peugeot 308. We now have some official pictures from Peugeot of this car, which will be equipped with the same 1.6L unit from the new 207, developing 120hp. This will be followed by a 150hp 1.6L turbo unit that was co-developed with BMW, with the range topped out by a 170hp 2.2L turbodiesel.

No official details have been released so far, but rumors say that the new model has grown by about 4cm to 4.25m in length, while height was reduced slightly from the 307.

Sales should start by the end of the year, following the car’s world debut at September’s Frankfurt Auto Show. A new coupe-convertible and wagon version should arrive a year after the initial release and there’s even talk of a crossover variant in the works. Click here for some more photos. (more…)
