Ready to make its mark in the year 2015, Nissan has officially released the first image of the 2016 Maxima which to some extent looks like the Nissan Concept sedan available at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Nissan mentioned that the new Maxima sedan will be available for sale in the second half of the year across the United States. It will include the new corporate grille and better body design to make it look modern and sleek.
The coupe borrows the body-styling from M235i (probably including the power specs too), while the alloy wheels are inherited from the new M3 and M4. The Blue performance brakes are visible on the mule, but the coupe is devoid of usual M division features like quadruple exhaust tailpipes and a more pronounced front and rear bumpers.
Apart from that nothing can be said for sure, as the secret still lies with the company’s engineers. The new BMW M2 Coupe is expected to enter the markets in the last quarter of this year.
Right after the auction of 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R, it was Chrysler at the Barrett-Jackson auction that went ahead and donated the luxurious 1961 Chrysler 300G. The car was sold for $200,000 and the proceeds went to America’s Car Museum which is the largest automotive museum in the United States. The donation will help the museum to offer better educational programs and preserve America’s rich automotive history. The car contains its original transmission, factory manuals, engine, sales documents, spare tire and jack.
British automaker McLaren has decided to bridge the gap between their two much popular hypercars: the 650S and the P1 with the new McLaren 675 LT. The company revealed that the LT stands for Long Tail and it is a homage to the iconic Long Tail F1 GTR that raced at the 1997 24 Hours Le Mans endurance event. So far McLaren is working on the prototypes, but the automaker has confirmed that the car will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show and will have a price tag of 400,000 GBP.
