Marussia Motors – Marussia B2

The Russians are at it again. This time around the company Marussia Motors working together with Valmet Automotive bring us a prototype that is like the next generation bat mobile. This vehicle is powered by  3.5 liter Cosworth engine producing around 420 horsepower. And because it weighs only about 2400 lbs the 0-60 mph is around the 3.2 second mark. With a price tag around a $130,000 this is something to keep an eye on. I hope the guys at Top Gear get to play around with it.

2012 Jeep JK Wrangler – New Pentastar engine review

As TFL reports – The 2012 Jeep Wrangler finally gets the new Chrysler Pentastar V-6 285HP and 260TQ engine and 5 speed automatic or 6 speed manual transmission to not only compete in today’s crowded Crossover and SUV segment, but rule the off-road world. More power and torque, better gas mileage and the same base price.  

Now only if they made a turbo diesel version JK… I will keep on dreaming until then.

 

Lamborghini Aventador J

The Lamborghini Aventador J is a street legal, open-air race car, with two wind deflectors to protect you from flying debris. Needless to say, helmet is a good thing to have. And since you’re already wearing a helmet you don’t need car luxuries like audio system, navigation, or air conditioning system. To save even more weight and make the drive much less comfortable they created the seats from “Carbonskin.” The car is powered by the usual 700-hp 6.5-liter V12 as the regular Aventador and currently there is only one in existence and I highly doubt that Lambo will make many more, so good luck finding one especially since as of now there is no price set for this vehicle.
