SPY PHOTOS—MERCEDES-BENZ SL PROTOTYPE: FLAGSHIP ROADSTER ADOPTS CLS STYLING CUES

From the spy shooters at Brenda Priddy & Company:

Mercedes is preparing its SL sports-roadster for the last half decade before its replacement arrives in 2013. While it underwent a minor facelift last year, modifications for this major overhaul seem to be quite radical and will include an all-new front with a new bumper, air intakes, grille and headlights—the latter reminiscent of those on the CLS four-door coupe.

SPY SHOTS: MORE SIGHTINGS OF BMW'S NEW 1-SERIES PERFORMANCE COUPE

We’re not yet tired of forthcoming BMW 1-series spy shots, like these from Brenda Priddy & Co. of a red coupe caught in Germany. Priddy tells us that this particular car's front fascia is slightly different than other spied 1-series, possibly representing a second performance package, this one likely powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo found in the current 335i. 

SPY PHOTOS—PRE-PRODUCTION DODGE CHALLENGER CAUGHT ON THE HIGHWAY

From the shooters at Brenda Priddy & Co.:

 

A Hemi V8 was no challenge for our photographer, as he was still able to snag a great shot of the upcoming Dodge Challenger on a fast-moving highway. And even though the pre-production Challenger was wearing a bit of vinyl, one can easily tell that the production model is nearly identical to the concept shown on the auto show circuit.

Although BMW’s 1 Series coupe isn’t expected to arrive on our shores until sometime during the 2008 calendar year, we finally managed to get extremely clear and detailed shots of the area around the c-pillar and the rear quarter window, as well as much, much more of the cute Bimmer.
