Lamborghini has brought in Huracan as replacement of Gallardo, which was on the market for ten years. The best elements from the Gallardo have been transfered to the Huracan, while of course the weakest have been replaced. A dual-clutch unit has been brought in, replacing the old single-clutch gear box. Moreover, the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter…
With the death of Paul Walker last year, the certainty of “Fast and Furious 7” continuing was really unknown, but this latest video shows that filming is back underway. A savvy car buff in Abu Dhabi shot this video of the production company shooting some driving scenes for the seventh installment of the F&F franchise.
From this grainy video, it looks like the car in question is a 458 Italia, which is a stark contrast from the imports and classic muscle cars that we are used to seeing in the franchise. Sure, there have been some exotics in the Fast franchise, but rarely did they see this kind of action.
There were no details on the shoot itself, as to when it took place, how long it pasted and if any of the cast was present, but we assume this was a skeleton crew simply shooting a little b-roll to fill some gaps. We’re hoping to see come previews rolling out soon, so stay tuned for those. And until then, enjoy this behind-the-scenes look.

Since the unveiling of the LaFerrari and F12berlinetta, the 458 Italia has become a little outdated, so to speak. Sure, it still holds plenty of value in the market, but it just feels dated now. Well, at the 2013 Frankfurt International Motor Show in September, Ferrari plans to debut a concept that it based on the 458 to not only bring the model back into light, but to also showcase future technology for the automaker.
Dubbed the Ferrari 458 Speciale, this model takes the impressive performance credentials that the 458 Italia already features and cranks the dial way up. A nice and healthy boost in output partners up with active aerodynamics and traction modifications to make this the most capable Ferrari road car to grace a track. It’s just too bad that this specific model will never make its way to production
So, what can we expect to see from Ferrari in the coming years?

Only days or weeks ago, we had arrived showing off a few newly discovered spy needles of the soon-to-be-unveiled Aston Martin Rapide Ohydrates, but with this bikini-style camouflage t had been wearing, that it was hard to indicate to what we was really waiting for. To help you counteract this kind of censorship by Aston, many of us turned to the crack render team to work with those traveler shots to whip us further up a clear consider this new design.To be totally honest, based on the spy golf shots and all of our artistâs rendering, thereâs really not too many external differences involving the 2012 brand and this prototype.

Itâs not easy to tell on your spy pictures what exactly is taking place with the taillights, nonetheless given the fact that all of the camo slashes them shut off at some point, we can think that they will be modified as well.The most important revision into the Rapide S is you will never find, but you will certainly feel. The particular 6.0-liter V-12 powerplant under the Rapideâs modern hood has become re-tuned to pump over an additional 45 to 100 horsepower, escalating its by now impressive productivity numbers to successfully somewhere between 450 and 520 ponies.With this strengthen, Aston also home loan giants keep the Rapideâs fuel economy steady in its definitely wallet-draining 13 miles per gallon city and also 19 miles per gallon highway. Perhaps, if you are snagging right up a car that will retails by more than $200K, gasoline consumption is likely end of it of your desired features.
