Brazilian Man Burying his Bentley
BY: omar

Brazilian Man Will Bury His Bentley In Hope Of Being Reunited In The Afterlife

Seems logical.

Have you ever loved something so much that you can be with it in the afterlife? Well, one businessman is going to bury his Bentley Continental Flying Spur after being inspired by the Egyptian pharaohs who used to bury their prized possessions in hopes of being reunited with them in the afterlife. The Brazilian businessman goes by the name of Conde Chiquinho Scarpa who can be seen standing in the picture next to his love. “For those who are wavering, just yesterday I've already begun to make the hole in the yard to bury my Bentley," said the 62-year old. "By the end of the week I bury him!” We hope his belief comes true - because there's nothing better than Heaven than driving around in Heaven in a Bentley. Source: AutoExpress

New Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Is Likely The AMG 5.5L TT V8's Last Car

Prepare to say goodbye to the M157.

Like the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter M156 V8 that came before it, the AMG M157 twin turbo motor—the V8 that powers everything from the E63 AMG to the SL63 AMG to the GL63 AMG—is destined to be replaced by a newer, more efficient power plant. But much in the way the M156 lives on in the C63 AMG and (in modified form) in the SLS AMG, so to shall the M157 endure a good while longer. But it seems the new S63 AMG and its coupe derivative will probably be the magnificent twin-turbo five-point-five's final use in a new production Mercedes-Benz.

That's the news from Australia's motoring.com.au, which heard the news from AMG head Tobias Moers. The 577 horsepower, 664 lb.-ft. output the M157 makes in the new S63 AMG is, according to Moers, at the outer limits of the engine's capability while still maintaining AMG's desired levels of reliability. Moers refused to confirm that the engine would find its way into any uses beyond the S63 AMG and the new CL63 AMG S63 AMG Coupe, which seems like

Of course, as we all know, that doesn't mean AMGs will turn wimpy. As we've reported, AMG is already working on a new engine: a twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 that will almost certainly be lighter and more fuel-efficient than the M157. And, considering the engine is supposed to be basically two of the CLA45 AMG's 355 horsepower 2.0 liter turbo fours jammed together, the new M177 will be more powerful than the M157, too. Last time we checked, 355 times 2 was 710, and 710 horsepower is 133 more than 577. [via carsales.com.au]

Jaguar C-X17 Concept is the Brand's First Ever Crossover

Previews the brand's new architecture.

We've been hearing rumors about a potential Jaguar SUV for years now and last week at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the British luxury brand finally released a concept version of its first ever sports crossover vehicle - the Jaguar C-X17. The concept will inevitably enter production and will be built on Jaguar's all-new advanced aluminum monocoque architecture, codenamed iQ, on which an exciting range of future Jaguars will also be built. The move is being made for engineering reasons which range from high-strength, lighter weight and efficiency. "The sports crossover concept represents the potential expansion of Jaguar's portfolio of body styles, with the associated enhancement of the brand's relevance and appeal to a wider global audience," Jaguar said in a statement. Jaguar also confirmed that future engine choices will consists of a wide range of capacities and outputs including all-new 4-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines, which will be built in a new facility currently under construction in Wolverhampton, UK. When will the Jaguar C-X17 enter production? We're estimating sometime in 2015.
