2014 Ford F-150 Tremor announced

 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor announced

2014 Ford F-150 Tremor 27.6.2013

Features a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 engine

Ford has taken the wraps off the 2014 F-150 Tremor.

Based on the short-wheelbase regular-cab model, the Tremor is described as a “sport truck that addresses the needs of street truck enthusiasts looking for high-performance V8 power with V6 fuel economy.” As a result, it has been equipped with HID headlights and an FX Appearance Package that includes body side graphics and 20-inch flat-black alloy wheels.

The Tremor also has a unique cabin with black leather / Alcantara seats, a center console, brushed-metal accents and the MyFord Touch infotainment system.

Motivation is provided by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 365 bhp (272 kW) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a “launch-optimized” rear axle with 4.10 gearing and an electronic locking differential. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive is optional.

The F-150 Tremor will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Appears to be a minor facelift

The strip tease continues as the 2015 Kia Sportage has been spied wearing less camouflage than ever before.

Caught undergoing testing in the United States, the facelifted crossover has a revised grille and updated headlights. The rear end is heavily disguised but we can expect some minor changes including a revised bumper and restyled taillights.

Our spies couldn’t get close enough to snap interior photos, but the model is expected to feature some modest changes including an upgraded infotainment system.

Engine options could carryover so expect to see a variety of GDi and CRDi units.  Front wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive will continue to be optional.

The facelifted Sportage is expected to be launched next summer, possibly as a 2015 model.

At the 2010 Paris Auto Show Jaguar showed off the C-X75 concept car, but we’re pretty sure all of you remember that. As all of you also remember, the C-X75 never made it to production.

To remind us once again what a great car the C-X75 could have been, Jaguar unveiled a new video (above) showing that amazing concept car.

The development of the concept car took over 2 years and the result was the most innovative and technologically advanced prototype ever created. The C-X75 pushes every boundary of power, performance and even fuel efficiency.

It was powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged engine delivering 502 horsepower. Additionally, it featured two electric motors that added another 390 horsepower. With a combined output of 850 horsepower, the C-X75 could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and went up to a top speed of 205 mph.

Mini Coupe

Mini added a Coupe version to its lineup at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and put it on sale in the North American market in early 2012. Since then, the model remained pretty much unchanged and so it will for the 2014 model year.

The new Mini Coupe was previewed by the Coupe Concept that Mini unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and it is based on the Mini Cabriolet. However, unlike the cabriolet, the Coupe offers just two seats on the inside, so customers can enjoy increased trunk space when compared to the Mini Cabriolet.

Despite being a tiny city car and the Gran Turismo-styled rear end, the 2014 Coupe will be intimately distinguished as a Mini model, thanks to its standard headlights and grille.

As with the previous model years, customers can choose between three different versions: Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works.

1956 Chrysler Diablo Concept Auctions for $1.3 Million at Barrett-Jackson

1956 Chrysler Diablo Concept

A 1956 Chrysler Diablo Concept was auctioned at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction for $1,375,000, the auction has seen some one-off projects auction at very high prices such as the Original 1966 Batmobile that auctioned for $4.62 million.

This Diablo was a product of the director of automotive design for Chrysler in 1953, Virgil Exner Sr., who was given the responsibility to design all of Chrysler’s concept cars starting in 1954. Exner would then collaborate with Ghia, one of the best body builders in Italy to come up with the Diablo Concept. Designed in a wind tunnel, the Diablo is one of the largest custom bodied convertibles ever built by the Ghia body builder and in its second phase it retained a full convertible top.

They used a 1956 Chrysler 300 with a 392 cubic inch V8 engine featuring two four barrel carburetors, automatic push-button transmission and a ton of chrome in the engine compartment. Every detail on this car was fastidiously gone over by Virgil Exner including the pitchfork emblems, emblem on the gas filler lid which is in the trunk area and the sculpting on the exhaust tips, which reportedly took Virgil several days on the drawing board to get the design just perfect.

The Diablo is also fitted with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power top, power antenna and air conditioning. The size of this car is of 21′ long and very wide. This car has been in the same important collection for approximately 25 years.
