A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are ten thousand words worth of beauty:
Go ahead, try to find something about this car that isn’t perfect. On second thought, don’t. It would just be a waste of time.
This is the latest generation of the Ford GT supercar. Here are the most important things you need to know:
- 600+ horsepower
- Mid mounted Twin-turbo V6 (No V8?)
- Seven speed dual-clutch transmission
- Rear-wheel drive
The car is stunning beyond words – there’s no question about that. It will have a ridiculous amount of power – 600+ horsepower according to Ford. The choice of engine is interesting – both previous Ford GT’s have boasted V8’s under the hood. This will be the most powerful GT yet, so maybe the number of cylinders isn’t everything.
Ford is planning to build this work of art for delivery in late 2016. It can’t come a day too soon.
According to Autoblog, Bugatti is nearly out of new Veyrons:
Hard as it may be to believe, it has now been nearly a decade since Bugatti first introduced the Veyron back in 2005. And in the ten years since, the Alsatian marque has sold 442 of the seven-figure hypercars, leaving just eight roadsters still left up for grabs before one of the most impressive feats of engineering in the history of the automobile roars off into the sunset.
If you’re still on the fence about this insane quad-turbo W16 — you’d better hurry.
The Wall Street Journal:
What’s the average cost per car to replace the faulty ignition switches in 2.6 million small cars – the defect the company has linked to 13 deaths, scores of lawsuits, a federal criminal investigation, and multiple probes by congressional committees, federal regulators and state attorneys general?
$261, it turns out. When you add up all the massive recalls that GM has issued this year, it starts getting crazy. 29 million cars. $2.54 billion with a B. In other words, meet the new GM – no different than the old GM.
Maserati may be a much higher volume brand than Ferrari, but they don’t want their cars in every driveway. To maintain some semblance of exclusivity, Maserati plans to cap yearly sales as 75,000 vehicles. That still gives them plenty of room to grow – they are still under 50k per year.
