2013 Nissan GT

R&T Overview:

When you build one of today's most potent performance cars, how do you make it better? Easy. Up the horsepower, which is what Nissan has done with the GT-R. By increasing turbocharger boost pressure, modifying valve timing and the fuel-air ratio, then cutting exhaust backpressure, the 3.8-liter V-6 ups horsepower from 485 to 530 and torque from 434 lb.-ft. to 448...laid down via the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system. To go with the added power comes revised exterior styling, which cuts the coefficient of drag to 0.26 and adds 10 percent more downforce. There are two GT-R models, Premium and, new for 2012, the Black Edition. The latter has a unique seat trim, interior colors and 6-spoke wheels. Two exterior colors are added: Deep Blue Pearl and Jet Black.

R&T Overview:

As America's best-selling car nine years running, Toyota rewards the Camry with a redesign for 2012. Instead of pushing the styling envelope, Toyota focused on improving fuel economy, ride quality and safety. Carryover 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and 3.5-liter V-6 engines achieve increased mpg. The big news is the Camry Hybird's refined gas/electric powertrain that nets a 30-percent boost in EPA mileage to 43 mpg city/39 mpg highway. All Camrys gain roomier cabins fitted with 10 standard airbags, split-folding rear seats, Bluetooth and USB/iPod port. New sound systems include Display Audio with navigation and Toyota's Entune multimedia. The Camry SE features a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters and optional ultra-suede trimmed sport seats.

R&T Overview:

Like its big brother the X5, the raked-roof X6 enters 2012 with little change, but the expectation of a freshening for 2013. Separating itself from the slightly less expensive X5, the X6 gives up practicality for its swoopy styling. This unfortunately, limits rear seating to only two, making the X6 positively inefficient. The X5 gets identical fuel economy numbers and is larger. What's more, the X6 doesn't offer a diesel. Instead, there's an ActiveHyrbid model that combines its twin-turbo V-8 with dual-electric motors to produce 575 lb.-ft. of torque while still retaining a respectable 17/19 mpg. When it comes to sitting behind the wheel of a sporting behemoth, no vehicle defies physics as well as the X6 M.

R&T Overview:

One year after the new 5 was introduced, it gets the M treatment. Gone is the visceral naturally aspirated 500-bhp V-10 and in its place is a high-output version of the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes a Cadillac CTS-V-besting 560 bhp. The Über sports sedan remains rear-wheel drive, although the 5 Series shares its architecture with the larger 7 Series, and thus is available with all-wheel drive on the xDrive 535i and 550i. The M5 (photo) is being introduced with a 7-speed twin-clutch transmission; a 6-speed manual is only available on the 535i. For improved performance and efficiency, the 3.0-liter inline-6 of the 528i has been phased out in favor of a twin-turbo four that is mated to an 8-speed automatic. A hybrid 5, based on the 535i, arrives in March.

R&T Overview:

Ahh…now this is the way the Z4 was meant to be! Built at BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina, factory, the Z4 M Coupe and Z4 M Roadster are fitted with the company’s S54 3.2-liter inline-6 that cranks out 330 bhp (though only 262 lb.-ft. of torque) and revs to 8000 rpm. As befits true sports cars, the M Coupe and M Roadster come only with a 6-speed manual with nice, firm throws; the SMG is not available. Compared to the regular Z4, the M cars have stiffer suspensions, larger wheels and tires and bigger brakes, while the interior gets well-bolstered sport seats and a super-thick steering wheel. With the new M3 receiving a V-8 in 2008, the M Coupe and M Roadster remain the only way to experience a high-revving, high-horsepower normally aspirated BMW inline-6. Get yours while BMW still makes them.
