The Mustang has been Ford’s flagship pony car since its debut in 1964. Throughout its 63 years of production, it has undergone some major changes. The revised 2018 Mustang GT is no exception to that.
Before we get into the changes in the GT, lets talk a little bit about the ecoBoost. For starters, most of you will know by now that Ford no longer offers a v6 for their Mustang lineup. They’re only going to be offering a 2.3L 4 cylinder ecoBoost, and the 5.0L v8.
Don’t let 4 cylinders fool you, though. In 2018, the ecoBoost is going to be making a whopping 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. In fact, Ford is claiming this engine will be capable of taking the Mustang from 0-60 in under 5 seconds. It’s also cheaper than the 2017 was by about $600 (for an MSRP of $25,585).
The Jaguar F-Type is already an amazing, beautiful, and powerful car. Recently, Jaguar has announced a new model that’ll outperform the F-Type – and it’s a Sedan. The newly announced model is being called the Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
It’s going to have a MSRP of about $192,000. This makes it more expensive than a McLaren 570s and a Porsche 911. That’s right – a 4 door Jaguar is priced more expensive than some supercars. Keep in mind that buyers can choose between a two-seater, track-oriented version or a road-based four-seater.
They’re also calling it the, “Most extreme performance Jaguar vehicle ever.” This is quite a profound statement coming from the marketing team over in the UK. So, how is Jaguar expecting to get away with charging such a large sum of money?
The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is a Beast
Let’s be straight here – don’t let the fact that the XE SV Project 8 is a [...]
Maserati reportedly is going to have a small, 2 door vehicle to replace the GranTurismo. Unfortunately, that’s been pushed back to the next decade some time. Thankfully, not all has been lost.
The Maserati GranTurismo is an absolutely beautiful car. To make up for the pushing back of a new model, they’ve added a few facelift touch ups for a refreshed look. The whole car looks (and always has looked) absolutely stunning.
What’s Been done to the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo?
You may have to look closely to see some of the changes that Maserati has made. For instance, they redesigned the grille which was inspired by a Maserati concept called the Alfieri. Road and Track also reports that it’s going to get a redesigned rear bumper. Unfortunately, we can’t see it yet as Maserati has only released pictures of the front of the GranTurismo.
The sport version of the Maserati GranTurismo will feature a new [...]
Finally! Porsche has unveiled the 2018 911 GT2 RS. This is the most powerful car Porsche has ever made, producing about 700 horsepower from a twin turbo flat 6.
It has a 0-62 time of about 2.8 seconds, and a max speed of 211 mph. Porsche has specifically designed this car to be fitted perfectly for the track. In fact, Porsche describes it as precisely focused, brutally strong, and the perfected driving machine.
With the base price of about $293,200 US dollars, it’s quite costly. Though not surprising, Porsche has made every cent of that price tag worth it.
What Makes The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Such A Perfect Car?
The design goal with the 911 GT2 RS was to have both a high top speed, meaning a low drag coefficient, and race-optimised aerodynamics, meaning maximum downforce. This wasn’t exactly an easy task for the design team.
BMW is a German brand known for mixing elegance and performance – similar to Mercedes. Now, they’re starting to delve into the electric car category. Since the release of the all electric i3, BMW has said it’s planning on making many more electric vehicles.
Earlier in the year, BMW confirmed a couple new electric vehicles in particular being released in the future. They unveiled plans to make a fully electric MINI for starters. They’ll also make a fully electric X3 in 2020. Finally, the upcoming “fully electric BMW iNEXT” should come around 2021.
This left a couple year gap between the release of the i3 and the next electric car. This made us wonder why they’d have such a gap. Thankfully, our questions were answered.
An All Electric BMW 3 Series
That’s right – an all electric 3 series Beamer (not it’s brother the 330e hybrid). To make matters more interesting, the all electric 3 series would be a main rival for [...]
Lamborghini recently began shipping out the new Centenarios to those lucky enough to get their hands on one. With only 40 built, 20 of them are coupes and the remaining 20 are roadsters. The coupes finished being delivered, so now the first Lamborghini Centenario Roadster built was recently shipped to California.
The Centenario is an extremely precious piece of Lamborghini and automotive history. It was built to commemorate the 100th birthday of Mr. Lamborghini who began the famous brand.
Lamborghini says, “It’s a homage to this visionary man and to the future he believed so much in.” We believe this outstanding car is a great way to honor his legacy.
What Drives The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster?
Under the (rear) hood is a beautiful, naturally-aspirated V12 capable of making 759 horsepower and 507 lb-ft of torque. It has a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a max speed of over 217. The automatic transmission also has a gearbox [...]
A couple months ago, Lamborghini set the Nurburgring lap record in a production car with a time of 6:52, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder. In previous weeks, McLaren has already beaten their record. In fact, the McLaren P1 LM completely shattered their record with a time of 6:43.2.
Yeah, you read that right. McLaren beat Lamborghini’s record by about 9 seconds.
The McLaren P1 LM is a track car modified to be street legal by the company Lanzante. The car was originally a P1 GTR, which is designed for the track and was not legally allowed on the street. Lanzante then took that car and modified it to become street car.
McLaren never officially timed the P1 GTR around the ‘Ring, and since Lanzante isn’t officially backed by McLaren, they took their modified LM and took it for a drive.
Chevrolet has done it again and blown our minds with the performance their big, burly V8’s can produce. This time, the new Camaro ZL1 1LE is doing the impressing with its lap around Germany’s Nürburgring.
The 1LE is the track-ready performance package of an already extremely track capable Chevy Camaro ZL1. It features a giant carbon fiber wing in the back and a massive front splitter aiding in downforce around corners. The wing alone is capable of producing 300 pounds of downforce! The ZL1 1LE also comes with exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires.
As a result, many companies are calling the Camaro ZL1 1LE the “hottest Camaro of all time.” We believe this to be quite accurate, and let us explain why.
The new Aston Martin DB11 is an absolute beast. In fact, Aston Martin managed to couple extreme luxury with amazing performance in a way that’ll make you think twice before buying any other GT. From the sound, the looks, the engine, and just about every aspect of the car, it’s quite possibly become the ultimate grand tourer.
There’s Something Special Under the Hood
The Aston Martin DB11 has an all new twin-turbocharged V12 under the hood. Now I know you’re asking yourself why they didn’t put a naturally aspirated engine under the hood. We thought that same thing when we took our first look at the car. Amazingly, Aston Martin managed to keep the V12 growl from the engine despite the turbos. We feel that this makes up for getting rid of natural aspiration.
This English V12 makes 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and is fitted with a fantastic 8-speed automatic transmission. The [...]
