Spy Shots: Next-gen Hyundai Genesis reveals new skin on 'Ring

By Steven J. Ewing

Filed under: , , ,

The launch of the next-generation Hyundai Genesis is drawing closer and closer, and this latest set of spy shots gives us our best look yet at the Korean automaker’s new sedan. Caught testing on the Nürburgring, we’re not only getting a better look at the finer details of the Hyundai’s exterior, but this set of photos gives us a clear view inside the cockpit, as well.

For its new generation, the Hyundai Genesis appears to be moving a bit more upmarket in terms of materials and layout, with a redesigned steering wheel, gauge cluster and center stack. The current car’s analog clock appears to be left intact, smack dab in the middle of the heating and cooling controls, but the rest of the updates look decidedly more modern and, if we’re honest, a bit German.

Outside, it’s obvious that the new Hyundai will wear a more aggressive front fascia, along with what appears to be a more rakish rear deck. Earlier reports have stated that the next Genesis will be much lighter than the current car, and with a much more sporty tune to the suspension. We’ll know more when the car is officially revealed, though it’s still unclear exactly when that will be.

Spy Shots: Next-gen Mini interior ditching familiar center speedo

By Jonathon Ramsey

Filed under: , ,

A Reddit user has posted images of the 2015 F56 Mini Cooper, one each of the exterior and interior. As has been the case since the launch of the new Mini in 2001, the overall exterior shape underneath camouflage screams Mini, but insiders are still calling the coming F56 model “the most aggressively different new Mini yet.” Inside, though, the two-door that defined premium hatchbacks has, according to its most devoted buyers, gone mainstream.

The giant ring atop the center console is there, but there’s no longer a speedometer inside of it. Instead, in an integration that brings to mind words like “shoehorned,” Mini designers have placed radio and telephone controls inside the bezel. According to the Mini experts at MotoringFile, the picture above is the base trim and one of four possible treatments – in the upper trims a larger screen for navigation takes up most of the space. The bezel itself is marked with mood lighting that supposedly “swirls around” when you start the car with the red toggle switch.

The speedo rests atop the steering column with a tachometer placed to its left. The BMW wheel pictured is just for the prototype – you can expect a familiar three-spoke Mini wheel when the car is revealed, and latest rumor is that the event will take place at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

Spy Shots: SpyCamp is summer fun for the most hardcore car enthusiasts

By Chris Tutor

Filed under: ,

If long hours of solitude spent in the searing hot Arizona desert, punctuated by mere seconds of fleetingly frantic excitement sound appealing to you, then you’re the perfect candidate for Brenda Priddy’s SpyCamp.

Brenda will host the first class of her SpyCamp this July in an undisclosed location 330 miles from Reno, 125 from Las Vegas. After checking in to your (less than) luxurious accommodations, you’ll enjoy a pizza dinner with Brenda at a “famous ‘car tester’ bar” then spend four very hot days waiting to get that perfect shot of a camo-covered car. Afterward you’ll get Brenda’s unvarnished critique of your “talents.”

The camp application states Brenda is “not a tour guide,” so participants shouldn’t expect fun-filled days of frolicking in the sun with the “World’s Most Famous Spy.” In fact, the app also states, “I DO NOT bail people out of jail and/or pay for traffic violations.” So campers, behave!

Included in your $775 cost ($1,250 for two) is a “famous BP&Co. SpyCamp 2013 wristband” and a free adrenalin rush. Not included is travel to and from the area, hotel ($77.95 a night for five nights), car rental (which you’ll definitely need) and fuel costs.

For more info, contact spycamp2013 at gmail dot com.

Spy Shots: Next-gen Land Rover LR2 spotted… unless it's the LWB Evoque

By Seyth Miersma

Filed under: , , , ,

The spy photographers we work with are fairly adept at figuring out what it is, exactly, they happen to be taking a picture of that day. So, when the shooters send notes along with their images, we don’t often quibble too much with the conclusions that they’ve drawn.

Case in point is this new set of spied photographs, depicting what would appear to be a variant of the Range Rover Evoque. Our man on the ground tells us that, tipped off by the slightly disfigured area around the fuel filler and the misshapen wheel arches, the larger-than-normal Evoques seen here are actually test mules for the next iteration of the Land Rover LR2. With the development still in the very early stages, the new LR2 (known elsewhere as the Freelander) may not be ready for primetime until sometime in 2015.

That all certainly makes sense from the perspective of the current Land Rover/Range Rover lineup, still we can’t help but at least wonder if there’s a chance that what we’re seeing is the embodiment of the rumored long-wheelbase Evoque? Smart money may still be on the revised LR2, but we’ll keep watching to see what these testers really turn into.

2014 Volkswagen SportWagen Renderings and Spy Photos: Calling It MQB SportWagen Would Sound Weird

By Jens Meiners

2014 Volkswagen SportWagen (artist's rendering)

What It Is: The wagon version of the Volkswagen Golf VII, and the Jetta SportWagen’s successor. Based on an entirely redesigned and much lighter platform, this station wagon will combine a huge luggage compartment with the Golf’s sophisticated chassis and efficient-yet-fun powertrains. It also will serve as the foundation for a crossover model called Alltrack, which we detailed here. That variation of the SportWagen will offer all-wheel drive, more ground clearance, different interior decor, and rugged-looking body-side cladding. To get an idea of how it will differ from the traditional SportWagen, take a look at the Passat Alltrack, which is based on the not-for-U.S. Passat wagon. READ MORE ››

2015 Mazda 3 Spy Photos: Good Genes, Good Jeans

By Andrew Wendler

2015 Mazda 3 5-door (spy photo)

What It Is: The next-generation Mazda 3 being tested. Although this mule is cloaked in a fairly complex vinyl wrap of camo, we can clearly see the A-pillar, the hood, and the roofline are right in line with an image of the next-gen 3 we discovered last fall. The fascia has been blacked out and taped up, but the signature of Mazda’s Kodo design language, the grille, is instantly recognizable—gone is the smiley grille of the current car. The language extends to the wheel arches and the shelf-like haunches.  READ MORE ››

Video: Ferrari F150 Enzo-successor takes some loud laps at Fiorano

Ferrari F150 Enzo prototype caught testing on circuit - video screencap

From recent spy shots to leaked information, we’re starting to get a good idea about just how amazing the unnamed successor to the Ferrari Enzo will be, but now we’ve finally gotten to see some video of the car testing at the Fiorano Circuit in Italy. This video not only gives us an earful of the car’s screaming engine and rumbling exhaust note, it also affords us a view of the car without its fish-face camouflage that it has been caught wearing recently.

The video shows the new supercar testing around the 12-turn, 1.877-mile track with an Enzo, and it is interesting to hear the differences between the 651-horsepower Enzo and its reportedly 950-hp hybrid successor. Scroll down to watch the newest Ferrari going through some track testing, and be sure to turn your speakers up.

Report: This is the facelifted Suzuki SX4 that we won't get

By Jeremy Korzeniewski

Filed under: , , , , ,

Suzuki SX4 facelift

The car you see above is, according to China Car Times, the facelifted Suzuki SX4 crossover. We’ve always had a soft spot for the SX4, so the fact that it’s finally getting a significant update makes us a wee bit sad – after all, Suzuki just announced late last year that it’s leaving the US market, so we’ll never get this upgraded little ‘ute on our shores.

Changes we can see include aggressively resculpted lighting units, interesting mold lines on the front bumper cap, redesigned air intakes and unique trim fillets on the doors.

At least we can take solace in the fact that there apparently aren’t any significant alterations under the new bodywork, so our crop of used SX4s should be just as capable out on the road. In China, Suzuki’s 1.6- and 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines are expected to carry over to the new year, along with the current model’s CVT and manual drivelines.

Here’s hoping Suzuki finds more success in China than it did in the States.

Spy Shots: Camaro spy shots show subtly different grille, front fascia

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , , ,

It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro – the only thing is that we just don’t know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we’d initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.

The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car’s mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?

At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we’re looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.

Spy Shots: Alfa Romeo 4C spied in the sun

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , ,

It’s been almost two years since we first saw the 2011 Alfa Romeo 4C Concept, but the sporty coupe looks like it’s getting its final touches before going on sale – including in the US – at some point this year. Judging by these spy shots, the production version of the 2014 4C will retain many of the concept’s styling cues, although we can also spot a few changes.

While the car is still wearing heavy camouflage at the front and rear, we do see that the side of the 4C has received some significant changes. For starters, the doors are much smaller, cutting into the side vents less, and there are also visible handles and more production-looking side mirrors. As promised by the teaser image released last year, the car will continue to ride on the unique, circle-spoke wheels.

The return of Alfa Romeo to the US market has encountered a few delays over the last couple years, but it sounds like the 4C could be the first of six new Alfa Romeo products on our shores by 2016.

Spy Shots: Redesigned 2014 Toyota Tundra spied testing in Canada

By Steven J. Ewing

2014 Toyota Tundra spy shots

When Toyota first announced that it would be bringing the 2014 Tundra pickup to next month’s Chicago Auto Show, we weren’t quite sure if the truck would fall into the “all-new” or “refreshed” category. After seeing this latest set of spy shots, we’re striking “all-new” from the record, but the enhancements do appear to be more than just a simple nip/tuck.

While the overall shape and greenhouse haven’t really changed, heavy cladding found on the front fascia suggests that a totally redesigned nose is in store, with a fully reworked grille flanked by new headlamps. Smaller styling details are hidden by the big panels of camouflage, but we anticipate a few minor tweaks to the rest of the pickup’s design when all that black tape finally comes off.

Mum’s the word on powertrain enhancements (if any), as well as any changes that have been made to the chassis. But with the updated 2013 Ram 1500 already on the street, the recent unveiling of the updated 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, and a preview of what’s to come from the likes of Ford, we certainly hope Toyota has injected enough new blood into its 2014 model year pickup to keep it competitive in this American-dominated segment. We’ll know for sure come Chicago.

Spy Shots: 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class interior caught in spy shots

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , , ,

2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class spy shots

With the redesigned 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class getting closer to production, the camera-wielding crew over at Autospies somehow managed to get inside of the car to snap some detailed spy shots. As the prototypes continue to shed camouflage, it would appear that Mercedes-Benz is getting closer to unveiling the car, and with the Geneva and New York auto shows coming up, it could be sooner rather than later.

From what we can see of this car’s interior, the overall look of the S-Class’ cabin isn’t a ground-breaking departure from the current car, but it has been completely redesigned with more advanced technology. The styling is now even more upscale with larger swaths of wood, more shapely door panels (without the built-in armrest cubbies) and the concept-like two-spoke steering wheel. The highlight of this car though is probably the two massive digital screens with one being used for driver information and the other used for navigation, audio and infotainment systems. One other detail we noticed about this car is that it was equipped with the new 360-degree camera that debuted on the new GL-Class and will also be used on the 2014 E-Class. We also know that the next-gen S-Class will be getting the new cloud-based MBrace2 infotainment system.

As for the exterior design, it looks like the next S-Class will carry a similar profile as the current car, but we can see through the camouflage that the new styling will fit in better with current Mercedes-Benz products. Up front, the grille is much larger is flanked by aggressive LED-trimmed headlights, while the rear view of the car shows us the LED brake light now at the top of the rear window, a more pointed trunk opening and a more squared-off rear fascia with exhaust outlets pushed to the corners.

Spy Shots: Audi S3 Cabriolet spotted in the world for the first time

By Zach Bowman

Filed under: , , , , ,

Spy photographers have finally managed to lay a lens on the upcoming Audi S3 Cabriolet. The new convertible stepped out into the light of day for a little winter testing, and from the looks of things, the model will borrow plenty of design cues from the larger A5. Not that we’re complaining. Word has it the S3 will put around 300 horsepower to the pavement via a quattro all-wheel drive system. We’ve also heard the machine will boast a dual-clutch transmission once it bows.

We’ve long been fans of the S3 Sportback, and the S5 holds a special place in our hearts as well. A smaller, lighter version of the big cabriolet with all of the aggressive proportions of its larger brother should prove to be a welcome addition to the Audi stable. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available, and be sure to check out the full gallery for a closer look.

Spy Shots: US-bound Audi A3 Sedan spied testing

2014 Audi A3 camouflaged prototype undergoing cold-weather testing

As the Audi A3 sedan gets closer to its debut, Audi has camouflaged prototypes to take it on the streets for final testing. Last time we saw the A3, it was testing almost in the buff, but it was on a closed track so our spy shooters were kept at quite a distance.

Now that the newest Audi sedan is testing on public roads, our latest batch of spy shots gives us a more detailed look at the entry-level luxury player despite the swirly camo. Except for the oversized wheels and the fancy exhaust outlets and door mirrors, the production version of the car should look almost identical to the A3 sedan concept we saw in Geneva a couple years ago. Some of the details we can see include a good-sized panoramic roof that stretches almost halfway into the rear passenger space and signature Audi LED-accented headlights and taillights.

Spy Shots: Ferrari Enzo successor caught testing again

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , , ,

Although we’re still not really sure what Ferrari plans to call its long-awaited successor to the Enzo, we’re certain that this is going to be one mean car. We’ve heard that it will be called the F150, F150 Italia and even the F70 over the last year and a half. Regardless of its name, this guppy-faced prototype you see above is Ferrari’s answer to the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder with a rumored 900-horsepower hybrid powertrain.

Since the last time we saw this car testing, the only difference appears to be that the exhaust outlets now may be closer to production form, with dual pipes on each side sitting up higher in the fascia. Aside from that, these shots are much clearer and at a better angle allowing us to get an idea of what the final product might look like. We do see some of this car’s details such as the headlight placement and shape similar to the 458 Italia and the massive brakes with drilled carbon ceramic rotors.

No word as to when we might see the production version of the car, but Ferrari did tease a couple photos of it last month and is much further along than spy shots we saw less than a year ago.

Spy Shots: Volvo S60, XC60 caught testing with freshened faces

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , , ,

Volvo XC60 prototype caught testingNeither the Volvo S60 nor the Volvo XC60 are that old, but the Swedish automaker is wasting no time ensuring that two of its most popular products don’t get stagnant on the market, a fate that has befallen some of the other products it offers.

Even though these two models helped usher in a new styling direction for Volvo not too long ago, the modest facelifts on tap for both looks like they will bring both products closer to the styling of the handsome overseas V40 hatchback.

Aside from the pointier front end, the XC60 crossover is also getting a revised rear fascia that now includes integrated dual exhaust outlets. The shots of the S60 show us that the sedan’s interior will be getting minor tweaks as well, including reshaped front seats and a new shift lever.

Teased: Rolls-Royce Wraith officially revealed in profile

Rolls-Royce Wraith Teaser #1 - profile

Rolls-Royce Wraith spyshot - front three-quarter view, disguisedWell here’s a nice twofer. On the same day Rolls-Royce releases its first official teaser image showing the 2014 Wraith, we also get a look at the car undergoing some cold-weather testing courtesy of some new spy shots. As the coupe version of the Ghost, the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and it’s expected to go on sale during the fourth quarter of this year.

Rolls-Royce already confirmed plenty of information in a teaser it released last week, but the latest image shows us a clear shot of what the car’s midsection will look like. Comparing this image and the spy shots, we can see that the Wraith will have a pretty sleek – (almost Bentley Continental GT-like) roofline, and, like the Phantom Coupe, it will have rear-hinged doors. We can also tell from the spy shots that it seems to be keeping the same face as the Ghost and taillights, too.

Be sure to check out the latest spy photos for the Wraith as well as a brief press release from Rolls-Royce by scrolling below.

Spy Shots: Ram Long-Hauler prototype spotted testing, world about to get new largest pickup?

By Jeffrey N. Ross

Filed under: , ,

Ram Long-Hauler prototype spotted testing

In the past few months, Chrysler’s Ram brand has gone from also-ran status behind Ford and General Motors to a class leader in many truck categories including fuel economy (25 miles per gallon highway) and towing (30,000-pound maximum capacity). Now, based off these spy shots recently taken, it looks like Ram is preparing to introduce the be all and end all of pickup trucks, with a production version of its leviathan 2011 Long-Hauler Concept.

Our spy shooters recently caught the two-year-old concept truck running around Auburn Hills, MI covered in stickers that would indicate the truck could be testing for a production model, and last we heard back in September, Chrysler has been trying to build a business case for the massive hauler. On the other hand, seeing as how the only changes made to this truck since it was first unveiled are a full factory tailgate and various Mopar accessories (mud flaps, exhaust finisher and bed step), it doesn’t appear that any changes have been made that fit in with the recently announced 2013 Ram HD models.

As a refresher, the Long-Hauler rides on the 197.4-inch wheelbase of the Ram 5500 chassis – usually reserved for stake or box trucks – allowing it to combine the luxury of the Mega Cab with the cargo capability of an eight-foot bed and enough room in between to fit a 60-gallon reserve fuel tank. This, along with the 50-gallon, in-bed fuel tank and the truck’s factory fuel tank means that the Long-Hauler has the ability to carry 162 gallons of diesel fuel – enough for one incredibly long haul.

Spy Shots: Volkswagen's hyper-efficient XL1 edges closer to production

Volkswagen XL1 Spy Shots

The Volkswagen XL1 is marching ever closer to production. Spy photographers recently spotted the diesel hybrid prancing through the snow during a little winter testing, giving us our first look at the vehicle’s daytime running lights, as well as the LED taillamps. The ultra-efficient two-door is said to be capable of returning up to 235 miles per gallon thanks to its two-cylinder diesel engine, 27-horsepower electric motor and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. We don’t expect the car to be quick off the line, but it’s hard to argue with triple-digit fuel economy numbers.

With its skinny tires and inset rear track, the XL1 should offer up interesting driving dynamics, too. All of the quirks of the XL1 can be attributed to the engineering quest for ever better fuel efficiency. Volkswagen says the car will have a slippery drag coefficient of just 0.186, which is far better than anything else on the road today.

Spy Shots: Jeep Liberty replacement takes shape

By Steven J. Ewing

Filed under: , , ,

Jeep Liberty replacement spy shots

Now that the Liberty has left us for greener pastures and the Compass and Patriot are entering their final model year, it’s time to start looking into the future of Jeep. The next all-new vehicle for the off-road brand will be the midsize SUV you see here, effectively replacing the Liberty, and not necessarily carrying on with that name.

From the sides, the prototype you see here sort of looks like a miniature version of the handsome Grand Cherokee, albeit with a bit more in the way of body sculpting. Up front, the seven-slat grille will be front and center, with completely revised headlamp designs that are reportedly angular and sweep well into the front fenders (you can sort of see what we’re talking about in the side profile). That doesn’t sound very Jeep-like, but we’ll reserve judgment until we, you know, see the thing.

The bigger question with the Liberty replacement will be whether or not its off-road chops will be up to snuff. After all, the two previous generations of Liberty models were body-on-frame traditional SUVs, whereas this new Jeep rides on a larger version of the Dodge Dart platform.

We’ll likely see the new Jeep debut at the New York Auto Show this spring, though we’ll no doubt spot some less-camouflaged testers before then.
