Jazz musician John Abercrombie. Fabulously interesting music, amazing guitarist, I swear its jazz..lol
First ever seen outside of the AutoShow circuit the alleged 5,000hp Devel Sixteen. The auto company is still claiming 5000hp and a top speed of 348mph. It was seen driving on a beach near Dubai and someone was lucky enough to record a video of the extreme monster.
The car is alleged to have a “street mode” that will deactivate eight of the 16 cylinders and reduce power to about 800-900 horsepower. Want the full shebang? Push a button and the other eight cylinders, all four turbos, and 4,200 more horsepower come to life.
Think this car is real or publicity stunt?
2014 Hawtai Boliger
Chinese maufacture Hawtai is selling the Boliger as a luxury SUV and i guess that’s why it looks almost identical to a Porsche Cayenne; right down to the “S” badge on the tailgate.
it comes in 1.8L Turbo or 2.0 Diesel options, 4x4 and 4x2 with prices starting at 22500 base and fully loaded $39674. Hawtai had a partnership with Hyundai and so this SUV has underpinning from the Santa Fe utility vehicle.
So if you like your luxury car to be slow and sorta look like a Porsche, this is the car for you. I mean 1.3billion people, they can’t come up with something better than this?
2014 Renault Clio
Another French number, the Clio is a small “super mini car” that is one of two cars (VW Golf) that has been voted “European Car of the Year” twice.
It comes with a range of engines, most peppy being 4cly turbos matted to 5 or 6 speed transmissions. Prices range from $15959 to $30566 for the top range RS model.
2014 Vuhl 5
Vuhl- “Vehicles of Ultra High Performance”
The latest supercar on sale to come out of Mexico built by the Echeverria brothers. There’s a mid-mounted 2.0-litre Ford Ecoboost engine, with 285bhp and 310lb ft. Because of the featherweight aluminium monocoque chassis, the power to weight ratio is an impressive 400bhp per tonne. So the Vuhl will do 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 152mph. Not quite Ariel Atom territory, but not far off.
Among other things the car features an HD camera mounted into the bulkhead between the seats - all you’ve got to do is press the record button on the dash, and you’ve got a perfect video of when you spin on your out lap. Simply plug in a USB stick afterwards to download the embarrassment.
Cost is $119605 US dollarinies. Car is being sold in Mexico and UK
Land Rover Defender 90 and 110.
The number relate to the wheelbase. Either two or four door wagons.
Some of these things have found there way to America and I’m not sure how. I’ve seen some driving around different parts of the states. There are also a ton on eBay.
Sadly 2015 is the last year of this style defender. Total replacement will be needed by 2015, when new European regulations regarding crash safety for pedestrians will render the current design obsolete.
2014 Holden Ute
Holden is an Australian company owned by Chevrolet that basically takes all the current Chevys they sale in America and rename them.. They even still sell the Caprice but it’s a fancy designed old body style Impala.
However, the Ute is the one car they make that is only sold in Australia and New Zealand. Its been featured on top-gear as one of the nutties car/trucks ever produced. It has all the luxuries you expect of a current Chevy product, plus it has a sweet 6.0L Alloy V8 engine that produces 348hp. You can get a entry level mode which has the V6 engine starting at $32K
So if you ever wanted a modern day El Camino, this is it!
2014 Skoda Octavia Sedan and Combi
Owned by Volkswagen, Skoda is still a based and in the Czech Republic. The Octavia rides on the VW groups MQB global platform which would explain why it looks so much like a MK7 Jetta and Audi MK3 A3. It’s sold in many east European counties as a entry level brand.
I think its a sharp looking car especially in RS trim.
