Spy-shots are the crystal balls that tell us what we can expect in the near future and like every month, we have had a bunch of them. So if you want to know about the supercars we should expect in 2018, here is a list.
BMW 8 Series
The BMW 8 Series has been doing rounds for quite some time and the launch is imminent. BMW has revived this series after decades and it will include the flagship coupes and convertibles that run primarily on fossil fuels. As a part of its product realignment strategy, the 6 Series has now been reformed into the 8 Series making way for newer cars under the 6 brand.
After the 964, the 993, the 997 and the 991 comes the new generation 911. The upcoming model was spotted testing on Milton Road near the Grand Canyon. The 911 will be built on a new modular platform and feature a wider range of powertrains. It is also expected to include its first ever hybrid set-up. The overall design won’t deter from the classic 911 layout as it hasn’t since its inception. The headlamps though will get a new signature which will debut in all future Porsches inthe coming years.
BMW has been working on the all-new generation of the G20 3 Series sedan for a while now. The Bavarian carmaker has now taken to the street with the first prototype of the performance derivative of the saloon, the M3. Based on what can be seen, the new model gets massive air intakes on the front, flared wheel arches, sharp creases and aerodynamic mirrors. The new model will get sharper taillights than the current generation model. Under the hood will be the same turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six motor. But it will be heavily revised to make it more modern, powerful and even more efficient than the current one. A 48-volt mild-hybrid system for the motor is also on the cards but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Aston Martin Vanquish
Back in December, the upcoming Aston Martin Vanquish was subjected to extreme winter weather (-25 degrees Celsius) testing in Finland. This time around, the vehicle will get sportier air dams on the front bumpers and redesigned tail lamps. Although the company has not revealed exact technical specifications for now, Aston Martin’s boss, Andy Palmer had claimed that the new model will take on the likes of 789bhp Ferrari 812 Superfast. We believe that the vehicle might get the DB11’s twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 engine with a power output figure of about 700bhp.
