Hyundai Veloster Spy Pics

The boys at CarAdvice.com got some great spy pics of the upcoming sport coupe from Hyundai, the Veloster.  This early in the game Hyundai is keeping the Veloster under camouflage and we are still waiting on some interior pics.

Although dubbed a sport coupe, it will only be powered with a tiny 1.6 liter four cylinder engine.  It’s expected that shortly after launch Hyundai will start offering a bigger engine with more power as an upgrade.

The Hyundai Veloster will most likely remind viewers of the Honda CRZ and will be aimed at selling to same market.  Personally, I’m not a fan, there is only so much use you can get out of a tiny engine and even smaller car.  How much abuse can the little thing take?

2011 Ford F-150 6.2 Liter Spy Pic

The fast eyes over at PickUpTrucks.com have already got spy pics of the new 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat Limited, with a 6.2 liter V8.  The truck is a massive step in the opposite direction of getting smaller is getting greener, but man is it a sharp looking truck.  Amazingly enough, this spy pic doesn’t even have zebra stripes or camouflage of any kind, even complete with badging.

My problem with the new 6.2 liter V8 is the serious lack of horsepower.  Currently Ford has produced the 2011 Mustang GT, which has a 5.0 liter engine and produces over 400 horsepower.  Yet, this new 6.2 liter produces just 411 horsepower and 434 lb ft of torque.  The power gains just doesn’t seem to warrant the research and development into the 6.2.

Consider that the 2011 Ford F150 Lariat is just like previous years, it will be built in limited production.  For example, just as far back as 2008 only 5,000 units were produced.  Likely demand plays a small roll in this luxury pickup truck, with a small bed, but plenty of room for pasengers.

Chevy Beat Spy Pics

The Chevrolet Beat has been getting a little bit of attention from the spy photo catchers and the latest photos have cropped up over at Autoblog.com.  The teeny, tiny, efficient Beat was caught being tested in New York, adorned by the typical zebra stripes.  It kind of reminds me of a clown car, perhaps an upscale Geo Metro?

One thing is for sure, it’s going to be hard to push these tiny vehicles, once released, while gas prices are so low.  Although it won’t take too many weeks of 3$ plus gas prices to make people flock to these things again.  Perhaps Chevy is just setting this project on the back burner and buying their time until another gas spike forces consumers to buy small again.

2010 Audi A7 Spy Pic

Audi does a terrific job of keeping Audi spy pics off of the web, but here is a glimpse of what the 2010 Audi A7 car will look like. Obviously these Audi Spy Shots don’t do it justice, unless you like your high end automobiles draped in paper bags. ;0

09 BMW 7 Series Spy Pic

Expect more of the same for the 09 BMW 7 Series, at least for the basics, it’s in the engine options that it gets real exciting.  Not only will you ‘reportedly’ be able to get the BMW 7 Series in V8 and V12 trim, but also an alternative fuel option as well.  Generally speaking expect an Electric Hybrid type motor available in the 09 BMW.
