MotorTrend is one of the first magazines to post a video driving the 2013 Shelby GT500, and with 662hp from its supercharged 5.8-litre V8 engine, it looks set to take the muscle car crown.
After much hype and excitement following the release of the Juke-R concept car, both the media and enthusiasts were very keen on a production car being made – Nissan has finally confirmed that it will go on sale.
The Juke-R will be available in limited numbers, and on a build-to-order basis. As of today, Nissan has received firm orders for three cars to be built.
Kia’s new flagship K9 sedan has now gone on sale in the Korean market, with other markets getting the K9 later on this year.
The new rear-wheel drive sedan comes equipped with a gasoline-powered 3.8-litre V6 engine producing 290hp, sending drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 334hp version of that engine will be launched next year.
The Kia K9 definitely looks elegant, but there is a hint of BMW 7-Series to its design. It does however come with a number of useful features, such as; LED headlamps, Smart Cruise Control (SCC), a lane departure warning system, a 17-speaker sound system by Harman, blind-spot detection, and four cameras to aid maneuvering.
