25 August 2011: Gaydon – The new Aston Martin V12 Zagato will be appearing in September at the 64th IAA International Motor Show at Frankfurt. Along with the largest display of contemporary Aston Martins ever seen at a Motor Show, two V12 Zagatos, both having completed their engineering sign-off at the Nürburgring 24 hour race, will be shown for the first time at a mainstream event.
The V12 Zagato is being offered for sale at £330,000 GBP (excluding local taxes) and will go into strictly limited production of up to 150 cars in summer 2012. 50 years on from the introduction of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin and Zagato have collaborated to create this modern interpretation which remains true to the focus of craftsmanship, performance and exclusivity which underpinned the original collaboration.
BMW premieres the new 5th generation of the M5 "a bold business car that at the push of a button turns into a sports car."
The new generation brings a high-revving 4.4-liter V8 engine with an M TwinPower Turbo package that delivers an impressive 560 hp at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 502 lb-ft from 1,500 rpm. The model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and, when the speed limiter is removed, is capable of hitting an impressive top speed of 190 mph. Despite these impressive performance numbers, the car will deliver an estimated fuel economy of 28.5 mpg.
The new BMW M5 will make its world debut this fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Sales will begin shortly after and prices will be announced at a later date.

Finally the Mercedes-Benz reveals the new SLS AMG Roadster. The 6.3 liter turbo engine comes with 571 horsepower and is a beauty. While the SLS brought back to life the iconic 300 SL, the new SLS AMG Roadster is the convertible version of car and once again impresses. The compact fabric soft top of the SLS AMG Roadster opens and closes in just eleven seconds, and can be operated on the move at speeds up to 50 km/h.
The SLS AMG Roadster is fitted with a naturally aspirated eight-cylinder engine that produces the typical rumble of an AMG eight-cylinder engine.
The three-layered fabric soft top is a weight-optimized magnesium/steel/ aluminum construction, and is said to contribute to the car’s low center of gravity.
Boot capacity is 173 liters with the roof either open or closed, and is similar to that of the SLS AMG Coupe, which is 176 liters.
The roadster is open for booking from June 1, with its market launch in the autumn 2011. The selling price is 195,160 euros.
