Cars Coming Soon->A Vicious Jaguar, an All-American M3 and a 1,200-HP Veyron

2010 Jaguar XK-Series

Anyone in the mood for a more vicious Jaguar?

According to Autocar, Jag has confirmed that a more powerful version of the XKR will go into production later this year. The car will be based on the XKR Goodwood Special, which has a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 pumping out 530 horsepower. It also features a lowered suspension, tweaked exhaust, and larger wheels. Top speed? At least 186 miles per hour.

As cool as this Jag could be, there may be a car on the way that could absolutely crush it.

BMW M3, U.S. editionIn the world of automobiles, market-specific models certainly aren’t uncommon. What is out of the ordinary, though, is for BMW to release a special U.S.-only edition of a high-end M performance model. But that is exactly what the German automaker is about to do, as it has released a series of teaser images of what it says will be an M3 for U.S. buyers only.

Right now it’s anyone’s guess if the Yankee version will come as an M3 coupe, sedan, convertible, or all three. Whatever form(s) it takes, the car will have a unique interior as well as BMW’s double-clutch automatic transmission. Further performance details are unknown, but we will fill in the blanks for you as soon as we find out!

Bugatti Veyron Grand SportFinally, if you feel the need to have the capability to hit 60 miles per hour in about 2 seconds, you’ll be interested in the latest news of a special edition Bugatti Veyron: The Veyron Supersport will have 1,200 horsepower, reach a top speed of 264 mph, and accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 2.2 seconds. Completely unnecessary and utterly pointless, but you’d be crazy to not want one.

If the rumors are true, the car will be revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours this August.

Bugatti’s 1,200 horsepower make me wonder: When will a production car break the 2-second 0-60 barrier?

  1. The development of these super high horsepower cars is so out of control that I’m surprised they haven’t been outlawed on public roads. Most likely the reason is that they are so expensive and such low production that there hasn’t been a rash of accidents on the highways. Also, a good number are probably bought by collectors and are never driven. I’d be more afraid if I saw one of Charley Sheen’s Mercedes coming at me down a curvy Hollywood Hills street.

  2. No idea when we’ll get a car that can get to 60 in 2 seconds, but I’ll bet that M3 will be awesome. It’ll no doubt be pricey, too, but a bargain next to a 1,200-hp Veyron.
