Honda Accord Coupe Concept
About Honda Accord Coupe Concept
Four-cylinder models now use Honda’s revised DOHC 2.4-liter I-4, which uses both direct fuel injection and Atkinson-cycle operation in an attempt to improve efficiency. Preliminary specifications suggest the engine will produce “more” than 181 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, and deliver “class leading fuel economy” when paired with a new continuously variable transmission. A six-speed manual will also be available.
Honda has already revealed most details surrounding the 2013 Accord’s powertrain.
Acura NSX Concept
About Acura NSX Concept
Subsequently, the NSX will utilize a form of the new hybrid Super Handling-AWD (SH-AWD) system. The V-6, likely a 3.5- or 3.7-liter, will drive the rear wheels by means of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Unlike the current SH-AWD system, which would send power to the front wheels by way of a driveshaft and a mechanical differential, the NSX’s front wheels will instead be powered by a pair of electric motors. As each motor is assigned to a wheel, the system has the ability to accelerate the outer wheel in a corner, creating a yaw moment that improves the car’s ability to turn in and rotate. All told, the system could produce a net punch of about 400 hp.
It’s still unclear if the NSX will utilize its own architecture, or perhaps share its platform with another vehicle. It is, however, fairly certain to enter production. Officials tell us the development program is still in its infancy, but the car could enter series production as early as 2015.
Bentley Continental GT V8
About Bentley Continental GT V8
The new Bentley Continental GT V-8 is 55 pounds lighter than the W-12.
That’s good, but not great. At least, the weight was removed where it matters most: on top of the front wheels.
The top speed is a slightly more restrained 188 mph.
The V8 is 75 hp less powerful and 30 lb-ft less torquey than the W12.
Lincoln MKZ Concept
About Lincoln MKZ Concept
Lincoln MKZ Concept on display at the 2012 Detroit auto show.
Lincoln’s bold dual-opening front grille that the automaker says is a more refined interpretation of the split-wing mug from the iconic 1938 Lincoln-Zephyr, with horizontal bars replacing the classic car’s vertical slats. A single piece of chrome wraps around each grille and headlamp flank, and both the front headlamps and the
The concept’s aluminum and boron steel chassis is larger than the current production MKZ – wheelbase is up 4.8 inches, now at 112.2; overall length is up 4.3 for a total of 194.1 inches nose to tail; and width is up 1.2 inches, now at 73.4. Height remains unchanged at 59.6 inches. The car rolls on concept-style, oversized 20-inch wheels with low profile 245/35 tires.

About Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
The all-new 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class prepares to take the stage at the 2012 Detroit auto show
There is a 4.6-liter, direct-injected, twin-turbo, V-8 engine under the hood of 2013 SL550 that has made its way throughout much of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. It gains 429 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, a significant boost to the outgoing car’s 382 hp and 391 lb-ft. Mercedes has estimated a conservative 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. Despite the performance gains, the SL will also be thriftier at the pump thanks to a revised seven-speed transmission and ECO start/stop technology.
2013 Lexus LF-LC Concept
About 2013 Lexus LF-LC Concept
This new coupe styled by Toyota’s Calty design studio in California, it shows the latest evolution of Lexus’ design language many of the cues on this show car have appeared on prior Lexus production and concept vehicles.
This concept started with the CT and GS by Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. The concept hybrid 2+2 liberates the idea of a sport coupe and pushes the boundaries of performance, style and technology.
A production version LF-LC would be built on a shortened version of the next Lexus LS chassis, and have a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. The car may be called the LC 600h and go on sale in 2015.

About Porsche 911 Carrera, Carrera S Convertibles
The 911 Carrera has a direct-injected 3.4-liter boxer-six engine producing 350 hp, while the 911 Carrera S has a 3.8-liter boxer-six with 400 hp. A seven-speed manual transmission is standard, with Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch unit optional.
Porsche says the Carrera cabriolet dispatches with the 0-to-60-mph run in 4.4 seconds and manages a top speed of 177 mph. The Carrera S is factory-rated at 4.1 seconds to 60 mph and a 187-mph top speed. Those acceleration times are on par with the 911 coupes, although the coupes can muster maximum velocities 2 mph higher.
Volkswagen E-Bugster Concept
About Volkswagen E-Bugster Concept
This concept is just like the beetle.
An electric motor producing 114 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. A 695-pound lithium-ion battery pack is stored beneath the trunk floor, enabling a maximum driving range of “more than” 100 miles. For comparison purposes, the EPA says the Nissan Leaf has a driving range of 73 miles on a full battery charge — although the Leaf seats five passengers and E-Bugster accommodates only two.
Volkswagen plan to use the same electric powertrain in the future Golf Blue-e-Motion.
