Aspid GT-21 Invictus
It will be powered by a BMW 450hp 4.4-liter V8 engine, with a seven-speed dual-clutch or six-speed manual transmission, weighing only 2,182 pounds.
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.
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.
