Mazda to debut next-gen BT-50 ute at Australian Motor Show

September 14th, 2010 by Darren Cottingham

Mazda has just announced that its brand new 2011 Mazda BT-50 utility will make its first appearance during next month’s Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) in Sydney.

Mazda released the above image as a teaser sketch of the new BT-50, with the striking styling inspired by Mazda’s current passenger-car range.

The model was designed in partnership with Ford and its sister model the Ranger. The BT-50 will be both wider and longer than the current model, providing greater stability thanks to its wider track. Interior space will also benefit, with the rear seats likely to prove more spacious.

Mazda has revealed little in the way of technical details for the new BT-50, so far, although the new model is sure to be offered in dual-cab and king-cab form. The two companies recently announced plans to invest US$350 million in the AutoAlliance (AAT) plant in Thailand which will handle production of the BT-50.

Scheduled to launch during Mazda’s press conference on October 15, the new BT-50 will be on view to the public afterwards.

Mystery Lamborghini teased before 2010 Paris Motor Show reveal

September 7th, 2010 by Darren Cottingham

Lamborghini is once again using the same teasing method it did for the Estogue sports sedan concept for the 2008 Paris Show. This time the Italian supercar maker will publish a total of six teaser images of the mysterious new model before the official unveiling at this years edition of the Paris Mondial de l’Automobile.

The above cryptic image has just been released as ‘numero uno’. The image is accompanied by a tagline that says, “Discover the way to the future of supersports cars.”

So the question is, what do you think Lamborghini is preparing to unveil at the Paris Show? Some reports suggest it could be the successor to the testosterone-boosting Murcielago, or perhaps a concept model for the addition to the formidable Lamborghini range.
