Top secret documents were found left on a train, departing King's Cross station, UK, yesterday. The documents contained information and notes about a new motor company, which will apparently specialise in affordable sports cars. There are several possible names for the company, including 'Fizz', and 'LSCI', which apparently stands for 'London Sports Cars International'. Further information is yet to be found.

Leaked details from XMC:
Model:2010 Xer Bravaria Cruiser
Estimated Price: $250,000
Info: Due late summer/early fall 2009, Xer is nearing the final stages of testing for their future flagship/halo car, the two seater Bravaria. Slotted above the Wave luxury coupe, the Cruiser will be an exclusive GT designed for a night on the town for two. From those who have seen the car in the flesh say the proportions rival those of old GT's mixed with Xer's own style: long hood, wheels pushed to the far corners, silky smooth Waved body surfaces and a unique tail design. The Bravaria will showcase Xer's first full LED head lamps and their new full Tri-Brid powertrain.
Final Verdict:The Bravaria is sure to shock and awe when its unvieled sometime between this fall and early 2009.

More documents were found on the same train this afternoon. According to a sheet of paper dated 27th July 2008 (yesterday), the name LAPS (London Affordable Performance Cars) seems a dead cert. The documents also contained information about a proposed, state of the art factory in Slough, Southern England, UK.

This Ohio-based mainstream passenger car manufacturer has been busy at work developing a Subcompact and city car platform.

Two other models, which are supposadly Toyota Yaris Sized are being developed one a hatch, another a sedan, codenamed Hugs and Kisses, respectively. They are also preparing a "super" allegro and possibly an Iza to compete with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. Sketches and internal testing are also being conducted on a midsize sedan platform, codenamed "Deena".

Firerise

Development of the Firerise Astrole, and Tupelo are complete. However, development of other models are at a stall. Development of the Astrole and Tupelo cost more than anticipated and finances are tight. However, do expect to see the Astrole and Tupelo on sale very soon.

Buracane

Internally, Buracane is working with parent company Iagei, as well as sister company, Aviva to develop a Front-engine, RWD platform that will be used on an upcoming BMW 5-series and 7-series competitor. This platform will also be shared with a large Aviva, that will compete with other full-sizers like the Pontiac G8 and the Dodge Charger.






Also, I'm planning some retro throwback models soon.

"Rumor is circulating wildly that reclusive billionaire J. Cuthburt Nesbitt-Rumbold has purchased from BMW the rights to the Riley Motor Company name and distinctive blue-diamond logo for the lordly sum of thirteen million pounds. Additionally, in recent weeks, the names of several storied Riley models have been registered for use by an undisclosed entity; including Adelphi, Stelvio, Kestrel, Merlin, MPH, and RM. This purchase should end any speculation that BMW might reintroduce the Riley brand as a follow-up to its successful Mini venture, but for what purpose has Mr. Nesbitt-Rumbold purchased the Riley name?"

These photos were leaked from an unknown site. The car seems to feature the cross symbol in the flashy side intake and on the logo. This raises speculation that this may be one of the first sketches leaked from the Mericros design studio.

The LAPS name and the Slough factory have been confirmed. The Slough factory already exists, but has been taken over by LAPS. The refurbishment of the factory has started today.

A Patchwork Quilt of a Spy Shot

This is our first sight of the strangley disguised prototype, codenamed X39, which will eventually become LAPS' first production car. Does the weird disguise remind you of anything? A patchwork quilt maybe?

The company of Mericros is looking to sell it's brands Burlington and Saxon to the company of XMC for a total of 1.2 billion dollars. We do not have word yet if the company will purchase them or not.
