Cadillac XT4 Compact SUV Spied With Its Production Headlights

  Cadillac XT4 Compact SUV Spied With Its Production Headlights A reveal could be just a couple months away. The last time we saw the new Cadillac XT4 testing, it had some very strange looking headlights up front. Those were pre-production units designed strictly for testing, as we now see the XT4’s actual lights in the latest round of spy shots. If we take a close look at the driver side door, we can also clearly see a rectangular shape in the camo wrap at the bottom. If our suspicions are correct, the XT4 could feature a set of deployable side steps that integrate into the SUV.

The black tape is beginning to peel off from the stately sedan's body.

Escorted by a diesel-powered Bentley Bentayga, this is probably one of the last prototypes of the new Flying Spur you are going to see with the camouflage all over the majestic body. It was caught the other day conducting cold-weather testing in snowy Sweden and looking as if it were anxious to get out of that rather annoying double layered disguise.

The fourth-generation Sportage has only been around for a little over two years, but with product life cycles getting shorter and shorter, we can’t say we’re surprised to see Kia is gearing up to introduce the facelifted version. Of course, it will take a while until that will happen, but seeing these spy shots is a sign an update is not that far off ahead.

The test vehicle’s fenders were playing the striptease game as some of the black tape was missing to reveal the Flying Spur’s true beige color, but still not enough to give us the opportunity to better see what will essentially be a Continental GT sedan.

Checking the prototype’s license plate with U.K.’s Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency revealed a W12 6.0-liter biturbo engine was hiding underneath the long hood, but its output is not known for the time being. In the new Conti it churns a 626 horsepower (467 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) whereas in the Bentayga it’s slightly less powerful, at 600 hp (447 kW), with the same amount of torque.

Mid-engine Chevy Corvette spied with less camouflage than ever

  Mid-engine Chevy Corvette spied with less camouflage than ever It reminds us of the Porsche 918 Spyder.The photos were taken at a private proving ground somewhere with snow, so maybe the Milford Proving Grounds near Detroit. Maybe it's the lighting, but the car appears to have thinner camouflage than before. Either way, we not have a decent idea of how the headlights, rear window and engine cover will look. We still don't know what rests under the hood, but leaked CAD renderings suggest both a naturally-aspirated and twin-turbo V8.

Although it won’t be as posh as the next-generation of Bentley’s range-topping Mulsanne, the new Flying Spur will still represent a significant step ahead in terms of luxury compared to the Volkswagen Group’s most recent big sedan, the new Audi A8. Inside and out, the new Flying Spur will likely take after the sportier Continental GT, but obviously with a few extra trinkets for those kicking it back on the lavish individual rear seats.

Will we see the new Flying Spur in Geneva? It’s not known at this point, but if it won’t be there, there’s a good chance Bentley will host the world premiere at the beginning of October during the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
