King of Rock’n’Roll Elvis Presley’s BMW 507 Restored Back To Formal Glory
The classic car you are seeing in these images belonged to the ‘Kings of Rock and Rolls’ Elvis Presley. The US musician bought this car while he was actually doing his military service for the army in Germany. The iconic car seemed to have disappeared and after almost 50 years it was discovered in pretty bad shape. BMW then decided to restore the 507 with chassis number 70079 back to its formal glory.
After almost two years of exacting restoration work the now restored 507 will be showcased infront of the public at the prestigious Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach, California on 21st August. When the iconic singer took delivery of his prestigious BMW 507 on 28th December 1958, the roadster was finished in feather white colour and was powered by a V8 all aluminium engine which produced an impressive 150 Hp of power back then. The car also featured centre lock rims, black and white interior and Becker Mexico Radio.
Bringing this old iconic car of the legend back to life was not an easy job. Although the cars original parts and other components were all present and intact but the 507’s engine and gearbox were missing, while the rear axle too was actually a replacement part of an unknown origin. The car also had rust problems which was actually eating away the floor assembly. Even the cars seats were all torn and the instrument cluster too was missing.
2016 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43
Only yesterday Mercedes-Benz India launched the all new SLC 43 in India which happens to be the AMG variant of the SLC Roadster. The SLC is the facelift variant of the SLK class and is a part of the new Mercedes Nomenclature. What is more surprising is also the fact that Mercedes introduced the SLK 43 just after 4 months of its International debut. This actually also is the first product which was launched with a new two digit nomenclature.
Now apart from the new name the Mercedes SLC also gets a revamped exterior as well as interior. Gone are those boring styling, the new Roadster gets Mercedes families new face while the AMG touches has made it more appealing. However the biggest change that you will find is under the hood, the SLK’s bigger V8 naturally aspirated engine is now replaced by a much smaller 3.0 Liter V6 bit-turbo unit. So now the big question is that has it affected the performance of this new roadster which claims to be a part of the prestigious AMG family which is popular amongst the crowd for its performance.

2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder
After almost a year Lamborghini launched the Huracan LP610-4 they introduced the Spyder variant as well at the 2015 Geneva Motor show. The Huracan was brought to replace the iconic Gallardo and thus its successor had a humongous task to live up to its predecessors name and thanks to the brilliant engineering package, it was. The car was so good that it was even faster than its bigger and more powerful brother, the mighty Aventador.
When Lamborghini launched the Gallardo back in 2003, a few people said that it is not how a Lamborghini should be. It was not mad enough. But all this changed when the convertible came out in 2006 and this kept many people happy. The spyder changed the character of the supercar completely and it was just mad. Just imagine you drive the same machine with that roaring engine just behind your seat and with the roof off.
Just like what have seen with the Gallardo Lamborghini launched the coupe first then came the Spyder variant. With the Huracan Lamborghini repeated the history again, they launched the Coupe variant first and then decided to launch the soft top Spyder variant of the same coupe later. Just like we all would have expected the Spyder variant looked dead gorgeous without its roof but at the back it still carried the same naturally aspirated 5.2 Liter V10 unit which is one beast of an engine.
Update 05.05.2016:- Lamborghini launched the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder in India today. T^he prices and details has been provided below

Porsche 718 Boxster S Review: Video
First of all let me mention here I loved the way the video started with rain pouring down from the skies and the sea waves hitting the shores. Usually car throttle videos do not start so gently but this video surely looks different. In this video you can watch them driving a brand new Porsche 718 Boxster. Now as you are already aware by now that Porsche has downsized the flat six engine and now it is powered by a smaller four cylinder turbo charged engine.
Obviously the flat 718 Boxster sounds a little different than the bigger engine but you cannot actually tell that this sounds complete disaster (watch 1:00 time mark). There are some new improvements made by Porsche in this new Boxster for instance you can now open the soft top while the car is moving, the new Boxster derives some of its parts from the old Boxster and other cars from Porsche lineup. The new Boxster also gets bigger front disc brakes, while trhe rear axle is shared with the Cayman GT4. While the turbo in particular has been taken from the 911, the 2.5 Litre engine which is capable of producing about 350 Hp of peak power and an impressive 420 Nm of torque in between 1900 to 4500 rpm. The car gets paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox while one can also opt for the PDK transmission as well. The gearbox has also been tweaked to match the overall performance of the engine.
You can watch the video to learn more about the new Porsche 718 Boxster and find our the rest of the changes.
