Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance division has unveiled the new, 2017 C43 Coupe to compliment the more powerful C63 AMG Coupe and broaden the C-Class lineup.

Aimed squarely at the Audi S5, the AMG C43 Coupe sports a more aggressive front fascia than on the regular C-Class Coupe, one featuring a diamond radiator grille, larger air intakes, and a silver-chrome front splitter. Other distinct exterior updates include black mirror housings, two chrome-plated tailpipes with center divider, a trunk-mounted spoiler, a rear diffuser, and 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

The changes inside are less drastic and include a revised instrument cluster with a checkered flag motif, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and MB-Tex / DINAMICA microfiber sport seats. Aluminum trim, red contrast stitching on the seats, and red seat belts add more flash.

Powering the AMG C43 Coupe is a biturbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Fitted with a nine-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds on route to a limited top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h).

AMG’s engineers also gave the performance-tuned German sports car an AMG Ride Control sport suspension and an AMG Dynamic Select system with Comfort, Eco, Sport, Sport Plus, and Individual modes. A speed-sensitive sport steering system and a high-performance braking system with internally ventilated compound discs further enhance its track performance.

2019 Toyota 86 TRD Special Edition, Black

The redesigned sports cars could ride on Toyota’s TNGA architecture.

Subaru and Toyota have announced that they are deepening their partnership, which will result in a successor to the BRZ and 86 sports cars.

“To deepen their relationship and to strengthen their ties toward advancing to the next stage while respecting the identity of each other’s brand, the two companies have agreed that Toyota will increase its equity stake in Subaru and that Subaru will acquire shares in Toyota,” joint statement stated.

The Japanese automakers did not provide specifics about what they are working on, but rumors suggest the two coupes could be underpinned by Toyota’s TNGA architecture and source power from a variation of the Subaru Ascent’s 2.4-liter engine.

In addition to the next-generation Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86, the partnership will also see the companies team up on all-wheel drive vehicles and more Subaru hybrid vehicles, and cooperate on autonomous driving tech.

Notably, Toyota has grown its ownership stake to a minimum of 20-percent voting rights, with Subaru “foreseen to become an affiliated company of Toyota.”

In related news, Toyota chief engineer Tetsuya Tada has hinted that the next-generation 86 will drive better than the new Supra.

Toyota has yet to provide any concrete details on the next Toyota 86 and, by extension, its Subaru BRZ twin, but rumors suggest it could be powered by Subaru’s 2.4-liter engine borrowed from the Ascent, perhaps producing around 230 horsepower if naturally aspirated or 260 horses with a turbocharger.

Other reports claim the two sports car will be built on Toyota’s TNGA platform rather Subaru’s new Global Platform, which can’t support a rear-wheel drive model, or possibly even on Mazda’s new rear-wheel drive platform.

BMW Concept 4 Previews A Massive-Grille 4 Series



New BMW Concept 4

Its huge grille supposedly “embodies the aesthetic essence” of the BMW brand.

BMW used the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show to debut the BMW Concept 4, previewing the “new face” of the 4 Series.

The first thing that will catch your eye is its massive twin-kidney grille, which the German automaker describes as a “confident and classy” new take on the brand’s iconic grille. Look closer and you’ll notice that it is made of several small “number 4s” joined together.

“The kidney grille has always been a signature feature of BMW cars,” BMW design head Domagoj Dukec stated. “The BMW Concept 4 presents a confident and classy take on this iconic feature. At the same time, the BMW Concept 4 offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4 Series range.”

The design is said to be inspired by the 3.0 CSi, though the 1970s car had a much smaller grille than any modern BMW. Do you like it?

Massive grille aside, the BMW Concept 4 borrows many styling cues from the 3 Series and 8 Series and features classic sports car proportions. We’ll have to wait and see how all of this translates to the production 4 series.
