Our favorite German car blog Fourtitude have played around with the powerful 262-hp Audi S3. I would love to have one of these, but I think it is quite strange that Audi haven’t decided to launch a 5 door version of the S3. 3 doors or 5 doors, Fourtitude loved it:
We found ourselves falling in love with the car, and in particular the engine.

Road & Track Magazine took a spin in the upcoming Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG 2009 a couple of days ago. The car is available in May for an expected price of around $64 000 – so it has to be good…!
The SLK55 AMG feels a bit pushy and high-strung because of its additional horsepower, while the SLK350 can be driven much more smoothly thanks to a better balance of power delivery and handling.
