It has a Ford Mustang V8 under the hood.
It will be auctioned for charity.
Even more is available with E85, but isn't warrantied.
Autopilot Buddy overrides built-in safety features.
The Mustang was built to honor American pilots who served in the Royal Air Force.
We both can and can't believe Ford would support this.
The man behind Icon shows off his shop's recent work.
The Wörthersee VW meet in Europe may be the biggest and most famous, but it's far from the only one. An American counterpart, SoWo: The European Experience, kicked off this weekend in Georgia for European cars. And as with Wörthersee, VW had some new custom vehicles to show off. It brought modified versions of the Jetta, Golf, Arteon, Atlas and Tiguan.
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Associate Editor Reese Counts. We talk about driving the updated, turbocharged 2018 Mazda6, 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo 4S Sport Turismo and the 2018 Nissan Titan S 4x4 King Cab. We also discuss aftermarket parts for the Chevy Colorado, pick our favorite 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels and, as always, help a listener buy a new car in our "Spend My Money" segment.
For years, the Toyota Tacoma has been the go-to option for off-road pickup trucks. Like the Jeep Wrangler, there seems to be endless support from the aftermarket for Tacoma owners. Thanks to the new Chevy Colorado, the Tacoma is no longer the only big player in the midsize-truck markert (sorry Nissan Frontier owners). The aftermarket is finally starting to take notice, too, with major suppliers like ARB and AEV offering new, unique products for one of our favorite Chevys.
Icon, a company known for its high-quality restomod vehicles, is building another Derelict, this one a 1949 Mercury coupe. While the fact Icon is building another one of its sleeper hot rods with patina isn't the most shocking, what's under the hood is. The company has teamed up with Stealth EV to turn this latest Derelict into an electric car.
The Dodge Demon doesn't strike us as a muscle car much in need of a performance makeover. After all, this 840-horsepower MoPar machine's voracious quest for straight-line speed means it trims weight by jettisoning everything from a front passenger seat and rear seat, to its stereo and all carpeting in the trunk. The folks at Hennessey apparently think that's not nearly extreme enough. So, the Texas-based tuning outfit has turned the Demon into a 1,035-horsepower beast that runs a quarter-mile in
A couple weeks back, we found out that Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations was planning to offer new and updated versions of the 1969-70 Ford Mustang Boss 302, 1969-70 Mustang Boss 429 and 1969-70 Mustang Mach 1. It's great news for those who want to drive a classic without risking a true collector. According to GM Authority, new versions of the 1968 Yenko Camaro will soon go on sale thanks to the Brand New Muscle Car company.
As charming and cute as classic Volkswagen Beetles are, there's no getting around the fact that they're not especially sleek, nor are fast. At all. That is with the exception of this, the Memminger Roadster 2.7. It's a custom Bug built by a German restoration shop called Memminger. It's low, it has extremely wide, pumped up fenders, and has been turned into a two-seat roadster. It almost looks like a Porsche 356, but bigger. And check out those sweet plaid seats.
Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations might have bit of a tainted history, but for the past few years, the company has been building some pretty sweet Shelby Mustangs using modern running gear and chassis packed underneath classic bodywork. The company has something new on the horizon. Later this year, Classic Recreations will offer officially licensed 1969-1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302, 1969-1970 Mustang Boss 429 and 1969-1970 Mustang Mach 1.
Nissan is following up on last-year's expedition-ready Titan Basecamp pickup with yet another expedition-ready vehicle. This time the company is going with its Nissan Patrol full-size SUV and it looks pretty sweet. From the renderings, it looks like it's getting a number of off-road staples such as big steel bumpers, a substantial suspension lift, big tires, lots of auxiliary lights and a winch. It also has gas cans, traction boards, and a rooftop tent. It should have everything you need to camp
Toyota's FJ Cruiser SUV ticked off most of the boxes the original FJ40 Land Cruiser did. It had two-door styling (thanks to hidden half-doors) and plenty of off-road capability from a traditional four-wheel-drive system and good ground clearance. But unlike the FJ40, the Cruiser never had a convertible option. At least one person decided that was necessary and had one converted to a convertible sometime in its life, and now it could be yours.
The Chevy Colorado ZR2 is a favorite here at Autoblog. It was a finalist for our most recent Technology of the Year award thanks to some trick spool-valve suspension. It's supremely capable off road without giving up anything on the streets. It looks like Chevy may have something bigger planned for the ZR2. AutoGuide reports that GM recently filed a trademark for the name "ZR2 Bison." In fact, we may have already seen a preview of the truck last fall with the Colorado ZR2 AEV concept at SEMA.
When it was first introduced in 2007, there was nothing like the original Ford Sync system, since it allowed car owners to connect and use a portable device better than anything that came before it. It took competitors awhile to catch up. But now Ford is the one playing catchup.
