2018 BMW X3 SUV Spotted in New Leaked Photos

A brand new set of leaked photos of the 2018 BMW X3 SUV had emerged online and based on a lot of features, it has been confirmed that they are indeed of the upcoming model. Similar to many other spy photographs, the ones released now are of low resolution and doesn’t do justice to the car’s amazing design. However, it is the first ever glimpse at the X3 SUV without any camouflage. BMW knows how to market their product that they released their own spy shots some time ago revealing their car but the new images show all the details along with the ones showcased by the brand. They did release a teaser video as well to support the photos in their Hong Kong website.   Being a mid-sized SUV, the designers didn’t try to change the size or shape of the car. The lack of drastic increase in size allows buyers to feel comfortable with the car in terms of spacing and driving experience. The styling is what that can be called evolutionary as there’s a much bigger front grille this time combined with brand new headlights and an overall rounded look. The changes are subtle but strongly proclaim that this is indeed a 2018 model of the popular BMW SUV. Many of the changes that can be found in the 2018 BMW X3 SUV are not visual but rather enclosed within to improve the overall experience. The new SUV is mounted on a rear wheel drive platform which is lightweight when compared to the existing one. It is supposed to provide much better fuel efficiency, drivability and loses significant weight providing better handling in tight corners. The entry level model is expected to weigh at 1,700 kilograms which is at least 100kg lesser than the current model. The new platform is lightweight yet provides more headroom and legroom for the passengers. Three different variants of the X3 will arrive when it gets officially launched. The top of the line M40i model will be powered by a 3.0-liter straight six-engine delivering up to 355 horsepower combined with 500Nm of torque. The top speed of the car will be pretty impressive at 155 miles per hour and can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds. A plug-in hybrid variant is also being considered which could significantly increase the weight of the car but it will be only for those who like to adopt electric tech along with the conventional powertrain. The 2018 BMW X3 SUV may also get the M division treatment if things go as...

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is the Fastest Car Yet with 592hp, Coming to Goodwood 2017 Event

The most powerful car to hit the roads from Jaguar is here! The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is going to break all the records and benchmarks set so far and it will not only be a record smasher will also break the banks with its unbelievably high price tag. After all, the automobile brand is not going to build it to appease the average buyer but rather for the high speed car enthusiasts and those who just won’t think twice about paying the cost. However, Jaguar didn’t talk about the cost of the model so far which will be discussed further during the Goodwood 2017 event. The limited edition model has been designed and constructed by the Special Operations division. While the designers are not ready to remove the camouflage off the car, they have already created a promo video for this superfast car. It is still covered and doesn’t reveal the design aspects of the model. The official reveal will be in the month of June at the said event. The Project 8 by Jaguar is a continuation of the F Type Project 7 that the brand undertook earlier and this will further boost the performance of the model. The car has many milestone claims to it as it will be hand built by engineers and will be extremely limited in numbers. The construction will take place at the Coventry SVO technical spot and grabbing one of the 300 cars to be built will be no easy task. Being a superfast model, it houses a very powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine which allows the Project 8 car to reach up to 592 horsepower which is approximately 25hp more than the earlier Project 7. The actual road testing can be done to confirm how well it performs in actual track conditions. The XE SV is also significantly faster than the XJ220 released way back in the 1990s as it beats their decades old record by a clean 56 horsepower. Based on the images shown by Jaguar, it is possible to confirm that the bodywork and the chassis of the XE model has undergone some noticeable changes so that it can deliver the expected performance. The front grille of the car is now equipped with deep air intakes, mesh grilles and other changes that match on par with what is found in the Jaguar Land Rover model. The technical details, performance numbers and pricing will be revealed next...

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be Released in June Priced at $250 Less than the Original Price

We all know what happened to Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The phone that had given Samsung high hopes by recording the highest number of pre-orders for a Sammy device ever, suddenly became a health hazard. After numerous cases of it frying and bursting into flames started overwhelming the South Korean tech giant, it finally decided to pull the trigger and completely ban the Galaxy Note 7 from the public’s use. At the time, the phone had hardly been in the market for a month, but the company had already shipped and sold millions of units in just a handful of markets, including the local Korea, the U.S. as well as China. Of course, many of those who had not experienced any issues with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 considered themselves unlucky when the calls for returning the device came in. However, the affected parties were more than happy to give it back and get a full refund or another Sammy device, possibly a Galaxy S7 Edge. Some have seen the move by Samsung in releasing Galaxy S8 and S8+ handsets with much bigger 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch display screens, respectively, as a way of trying to alleviate the pain felt by lovers of the Galaxy Note series due to its immense display real estate. Many had fallen in love with the Note series due to its phablet size and when the Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued, it meant that they had to wait for another year before actually getting their hands on another powerful phablet-sized flagship from the Korean company. Some might be happy with the big-screen Galaxy S8 and S8+, but those who loved the Galaxy Note series for more than just its display size might not have to wait long before they can get their hands on a full Galaxy Note device with support for the unique S Pen. Yes, this is one feature that has made the Note series such a popular smartphone lineup and if it’s the only thing that has been keeping you glued to the Note series, well, there’s some good news for you. After a series of appearances in leaks and recently on the Wi-Fi Alliance, the latest report coming from South Korea says that the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be back in June. While this has been mentioned before, there was no word on the expected come-back date, but it is now official. In fact, there’s more. The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will make its debut in South Korea and so far, the report says that the phone will be priced at around $250 less when compared to the original asking...
