The Spyker D12 Peking-to-paris is a premium 4-door high performance SUV from the Dutch vehicle maker Spyker Vehicles. The model was presented at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show and production is planned to begin in late 2007. After the introduction there, the model already received well over 100 orders. The model was first presented to the North-american sphere, which is believed to be its main sphere, at the New York motor show in April 2006. The name Peking-to-paris refers to the Peking to Paris endurance rally held in 1907 from Peking (now named Beijing) in China to Paris in France, in which an almost traditional Spyker vehicle participated, driven by Frenchman Ch. Goddard. The Spyker vehicle came in second in the rally after a three month drive.
Despite having a weight of 1850, kg, the vehicle still goes from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 5. 0seconds and has a top speed of 295 km/h. It achieves this by using a 500 bhp Audi W12 motor. Though being an SUV, the vehicle has a lot of layout features from Spyker's sports vehicle, the C8, such as the "aeroblade" wheels and smooth back view mirrors. Also notable is that the rear bench doors are hinged at the back, creating so named suicide doors.
Cadillac represented the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe, the latest and most exciting of the brand's series of new designs to reach production. Slated to arrive in Cadillac showrooms in the spring of 2010, the Cadillac CTS Coupe is a new luxury sports coupe developed to become the centerpiece of the brand's updated lineup.
Cadillac CTS Coupe is the new focal point of Cadillac, expressing both our layout and technical features, explained Bryan Nesbitt, Cadillac basic manager. It is tailored to appeal to a new generation of vehicle enthusiasts.
The Coupe joins the Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan, the 556-horsepower (415 Kw) Cadillac CTS-V and new Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon as the foundation of Cadillac's lineup. A high-performance V-series edition of the Coupe will also be launched in 2010.
The Cadillac CTS Coupe's layout carries over virtually unchanged from the concept vehicle that was presented at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2008.
