All-new BMW X6 introduced - w/video
Lots of folks don't understand the X6. The X6 is really a styling statement that says, "I want an SUV/crossover/SAV but I would like a "coupe-like" roofline to go with it for some visual excitement and no, I don't mind losing some cargo room." Voila, the X6 in a nutshell. So kinda sorta technically the X6 is an X5 with (more) style. The X6 comes with...

Classic Motor Cars in the UK to have some restomod work done to the classic sedan. The results are quite stunning. Callum designed the bumpers to fit into the overall shape as opposed to the chrome add-ons that adorned the car previously. He added front fender air vents, flared wheel arches and more to make the Mark 2 look more modern, but still retain the classic shape. The interior was upgraded with modern materials and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. The chassis and underpinnings were completely redone with a new suspension (including an independent rear suspension), 17-inch split rim spoke wheels, upgraded braking, and a modified and uprated 4.3 litre XK engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. And let's not forget the beautiful paint work. This is one of those cars that you wish you
had in your driveway. I imagine that if you've got the bucks, CMC will build you one (as long as Callum gives the okay to use his design). If you check out CMC's site, they do work on regular Mark 2 Jags if that's more your cup of tea. I like Callum's Jag personally... Release, pics, and video after the jump.

Ford F-150 Tremor since the look is similar, but the execution is very different. The Chevy Cheyenne Concept, shown at SEMA, is more like the Tremor than the truck you see here, the 2015 Silverado Rally Edition which will come in Rally 1 (while truck) and Rally 2 (red truck) iterations. The Rally 1 Silverado (see the white truck after the jump) gets a body-colored grille with black bowtie logo, black door handles, mirror caps, and two black rally stripes. The Rally 2 version gets all that plus 22-inch black alloy wheels and black tubular side steps. Both packages also include the trailering package with a hitch and automatic locking rear differential, 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone climate control, remote start, backup camera, rear defroster, and the eight-inch Chevy MyLink radio that includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity. The Rally Editions come standard with the 4.3-Liter EcoTec3 V-6 (285-horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque) and a six-speed automatic, while the 5.3L Ecotec V-8 (355 hp) is optional. Basically this is an appearance group that gives the '15 Silverado pick-up a dash of style, especially in Rally 2 guise. The Silverado Rally Editions will come in the Double-Cab (available September) and Crew Cab (available October) body configurations. If this is what you've been waiting for, get to your Chevy dealer today for availability and pricing info.

www.superformance.com). Sevens are shipped to the USA in part-built form and sold as rolling chassis via Superformance’s nationwide dealer network. The Seven 360 and 480 were developed especially for the US market (I have included a release for the UK Roadsport 175 which seems closest to US spec cars) and they will set you back $44,900 for the Seven 360 and $52,900 for the 480. Not a lot of bucks for wind-in-your-hair and bugs-in-your-teeth sports car motoring. Visit their website (at the link below) to find a dealer close to you. Enjoy!
