    The first set of pictures of the Frankfurt Motor Show-bound Ferrari 458 Italia Spider have dripped out on the open thanks to the folks over at the Cheers & Gears fan site.

    Information remains scarce for now, but sources suggest

    that there's a retractable hardtop hiding under the dual pod behind the

    passenger area, and not a traditional cloth top as previously thought.


    we expect the Spider to feature the same marvelous 4.5-liter V8 engine

    with direct injection technology that powers the 458 Italia coupe model.

    The V8 is rated at 570 horsepower at

    9,000 rpm and 540Nm or 398.2 lb-ft of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Power

    will be sent to the rear wheels through Ferrari's 7-speed F1 dual-clutch

    For the first time in the SLK's history,

    Mercedes-Benz is offering a diesel-powered version of its small hardtop

    roadster that will be available for order in Europe from September 13,


    The new SLK

    250 CDI makes use of the Stuttgart-based automaker's 2.1-liter

    turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine delivering 204-horses (150kW)

    and a hefty 500Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of peak torque.


    is transferred to the rear wheels through a standard 7G-TRONIC PLUS

    automatic transmission, but Mercedes said a six-speed manual gearbox

    will also be available in the second quarter of next year.


    the 7sp auto, the SLK 250 CDI can go from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in

    6.7 seconds, accelerate from 80 to 120km/h in 4.3 seconds, and reach a

    top speed of 243 km/h (151mph).


    while performance is on par with the gasoline-powered SLK 250

    BlueEfficiency that features a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-pot with

    204HP (0-100km/h in 6.6 sec, 243 km/h top speed), the diesel SLK really

    shines when it comes to fuel economy.


    to Mercedes, the SLK 250 CDI returns a combined fuel consumption of

    4.9lt/100km (48mpg US or 57.7mpg UK) versus the SLK 250 BlueEfficiency's

    6.2 lt/100 km (38 US mpg or 45.6mpg UK).

    Like all third-generation SLK models,

    the SLK 250 CDI also features a start/stop system as standard, and is

    available with a choice of three versions of the vario-roo, including

    the panoramic glass roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL that allows it to be

    changed from dark to transparent at the touch of a button.

    It was bound to happen; the very first official press photos of the new 2012 Porsche 911

    were leaked onto the internet today well ahead of the sports coupe's

    world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September.

    If you're having a hard time spotting the styling changes we won't blame you as the 991 was closely modeled after the outgoing 997.


    while there may be more differences than we care to mention, the most

    eye-catching alterations concern the concave front LED daytime running

    lamps, the door-mounted exterior mirrors and the much thinner and more

    futuristic looking LED tail lamps that adorn the more heavily sculpted

    rear end.' target="_blank">


    anticipated, the new 911's interior blends the two styling worlds of

    the 997 and the Panamera into one. A key highlight is the pronounced

    lower part of the center console that hosts a number of buttons.


    away from the styling and you'll find a larger platform with a 4.0-inch

    longer wheelbase as well as a new pair of engines, with the basic

    Carrera sporting a 3.4-liter boxer delivering 350HP, and the Carrera S, a

    3.8-liter flat-six producing around 400-horsepower.

    In both models, power is channeled to the driving wheels through a new 7-speed manual gearbox or an optional PDK transmission.

    It's been a long time in the

    making, but Suzuki is finally ready to add a sporty variant to the

    Swift's range. The Japanese automaker released a single photo and

    details of the Swift Sport ahead of its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.


    new Swift Sport is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an

    output of 135HP at 6,900 rpm and maximum torque of 160 Nm (118 lb/ft) at

    4,400 rpm. The four-cylinder engine was developed especially for the

    Swift Sport and it transmits power to the front wheels via a newly

    developed six-speed manual gearbox.

    According to Suzuki,

    the new Swift Sport is more refined than its predecessor that was

    launched in 2006. The company says it will also be more responsive

    thanks to struts with internal rebound springs and a redesigned rear


    While it has a more aggressive look than the regular versions

    thanks to the large honeycombed front grille, the redesigned front

    bumper with the big fog lights and the side skirts, it isn't as wild as

    the Swift S-Concept we saw at the Geneva Show last March.


    Suzuki has not released any photos of the interior, the company claims
