Rolls Royce has a SUV???

That is correct, for a hefty price tag of $325k.  Rolls has finally unveiled their first ever SUV, the Cullinan, named after the largest diamond ever discovered.  Heated front door armrests and rear side armrests, an entire backrest panel crafted from a single piece of leather and a glass partition separating the passenger cabin are among the goodies included for those with deep pockets.  Weighing in at over 5,800 pounds — rides on 22-inch wheels with narrow sidewall tires.  I know the everyone wants to know, WHATS UNDER THE HOOD?  Well it packs a 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 good for 562 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, ultimately delivering a top speed of 155 mph.

How fast is the Lotus Exige Sport 380?

It’s unarguably the fastest Exige ever built, able to hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, thanks to a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 generating 375 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque. Weighing in at less than 2,500 Lbs with the help of polycarbonate rear glass, lithium-ion battery and carbon fiber elements at the front splitter and rear wing.  It also features a six-speed “open gate” manual transmission (or an optional automatic) and a bare-bones interior. Prices start $84,000.  No word if it will actually reach U.S soil.

Lambo and LAPD??

What you are seeing is an actual police car, not from a movie set, which was produced by none other than LAPD. However, unfortunately, it is not a patrol car or a pursuit vehicle, as this Lamborghini Gallardo was donated to the department from Los Angeles residents, Nathale and Travis Marg.

The 2014 BMW M4′s official unveiling, a passel of leaked images have surfaced online. Preliminary reports indicate that the vehicle will be powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder, good for 431 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels of the 3300-lb M4 Coupe, enabling it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and an ultimate top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). An optional M Driver’s Package boosts that figure to 174 mph.
