Opel Insignia will get its station wagon version, the Sports Tourer, in Paris

The Opel Vectra replacement, named Insignia, has just been presented at the British Auto Show, last month, and it already has its station wagon version prepared. Called Sports Tourer, the new vehicle will be presented at the Paris Motor Show:

With a generous wheelbase of 2.74 m, similar to the sedan's, the Sports Tourer also has a big luggage compartment, with 540 l. Besides the engines that are already offered for Insignia, the station wagon will also have a downsized gasoline turbo powerplant and a new turbodiesel, but Opel did not disclose their technical specs. They will surely be saved for the official presentation, in October. Meanwhile, you can at least admire the elegant lines of the new vehicle. Enjoy them!

Pininfarina Hyperion officially appears at Pebble Beach

Pininfarina is widely known for the creation of real pieces of art over four wheels and the custom-made Hyperion, created over the base of a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé is the aluminium proof of that:

Pininfarina Hyperion appears ahead of Pebble Beach presentation

Besides being the most important classic car event in the world, Pebble Beach also reveals the cars that will become classic, such as the new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport and, now, the one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce Pininfarina Hyperion, which has been revealed ahead of its official presentation:

Based on the Phantom Drophead Coupe, the new convertible from Rolls-Royce has been designed especially for one customer that has agreed to expose the car at the sanctuary of classic vehicles, as well as Pininfarina once did with a Ferrari Enzo, which became the P4/5.

Created to pay homage to pre-war vehicles, Hyperion already has the credentials to enter the automotive Olimpus. Let's wait for details and official information to be disclosed. In the meantime, appreciate the gorgeous lines of this brand-new classic.

Audi presents revised A6, S6 and RS 6

Audi has released today the first images of the revised A6. Considering this vehicle has given birth to many others, such as A6 allroad quattro, S6 and the mighty RS 6, all of them have also received changes in their front grilles, bumpers, air vents and fog lamps, but not only that.

According to Audi, all engines are also about 15% more frugal. As for the RS 6, it uses a fantastic V10 (the same one used by Lamborghini Gallardo) with twin turbo system and 580 bhp. Have a look at the pictures of the new A6 family.

Shelby Distribution revives the Daytona Cobra Coupe

Only six Daytona Cobra Coupe units were built back in the 1960's. Since it must always have seemed pretty unfair to most people that fell in love with that car, Shelby Distribution decided to build a few more in order to allow more people to own and drive this great machine:

Although the car kept its basic identity, it is larger than the original, with a new suspension and more interior room. These changes gave the car a new name, Superformance Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, huge, but such a vehicle could not be named with less than that, considering they will also be part of the official Shelby Registry.

Check out the new Honda City/Aria, the sedan from Fit/Jazz

You may have already seen Team-BHP pictures on the new Honda City/Aria, but now the Argentinea designer Jorge Luis Fernández, owner of the Area 75 website, allowed us to show the car with no camouflage. Check it out:

As it is evident, the new small sedan will not be a Frankenstein, or else, a Fit/Jazz with a boot, but rather an entirely new car, apart from its underpinnings. We can almost say it will be a mini-Civic, either for the ones that cannot afford the original one or for the ones that need a smaller car to fit in their parking spaces. With a wheelbase of 2.50 m, the new sedan will be built in Asia and Argentina, with the same engines the new Fit/Jazz adopts, a 1.4-litre pumping out 100 bhp and a 1.5-litre generating 120 bhp. Expect the car for 2009.
