1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 in New York City
The year of the 4-cylinder?
Not since the 1.9-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder of the 318 and original Z3 has BMW sold anything less than an inline-6. The 2012 BMW Z4 is changing that.
Complete details of the updated 2012 BMW Z4 aren’t out yet, but expect this 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, with what BMW calls TwinPower Turbo technology, to surpass the inline-6 in both performance and efficiency. That technology includes the close-coupled turbocharger, direct injection and Valvetronic.
The white 2012 Jaguar XKR-S shown at the New York Auto Show is the car many people said they’d like to take home. This is an utterly stunning car and, judging from the specs, should be even more thrilling to drive.
The last Eclipse
Available in either hardtop Coupe or droptop Spyder, the Eclipse Special Edition starts with a well-equipped GS-Sport model. Exclusive SE details are dark silver 18-in. alloy wheels, black side mirrors and SE badging. The 2.4-liter inline-4 will be the only available engine option as is the 4-speed automatic transmission. Not quite how we envisioned the Eclipse going out…
Does Eminem approve?
The 2012 Chrysler 200 S Convertible is fitted with the 283-bhp 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. The 200 S receives a new grille with black background and Chrysler’s latest winged logo. The headlights also receive a black background, while the mirrors and door handles are body-colored.
The 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, one of our favorite compact Uber-sedans of the modern age, returns with a fresh, yet still thoroughly irascible demeanor.
The new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu shown at New York isn’t a huge departure in styling, but gains some masculinity.
The D4-S will mate to either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. While the manual transmission would be our choice, the automatic transmission cars will have shift paddles on the steering wheel.

The Scion FR-S Concept shown at New York was built by Five Axis, a prominent show car and customization house in Southern California.
We doubt the 20-in. wheels, massive 18-in. Carbon-ceramic disk brakes, and 4-piston calipers will make it into production.
