2014 Ford F-150 STX SuperCrew Truck: More Value for Money

2014 Ford F-150 STX SuperCrew Truck

For the next model year the most popular half-ton truck in the United States will bring you even more value for money with its new 2014 Ford F-150 STX SuperCrew trim. Neatly slipped between a humble work-horse F-150 XL and a tad more comfortable F-150 XLT, the F-150 STX is now available with a full-sized SuperCrew cabin that gives you four doors and five seats for you, your missus and the kids. And as for the in-laws, there is plenty of space in the bed, too.

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Targets the Bentley Continental GT?

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Based on the current Rolls-Royce Coupe, the new 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith offers the same shooting brake-style roof as the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT and even has its rear part clearly inspired by the archrival’s sporty grand-tourer. The price is very different, though. Unveiled this week during the 84th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, the car will probably go on sale in Q3 at an estimated price of some €250,000: almost 1.5 times more expensive than the current Continental.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

Yesterday in Geneva, Switzerland, General Motors has officially pulled the wraps off its new and shiny 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. Besides a huge V8 that uses less than 14 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers in a combined cycle, the new convertible also features a “fully electronic top” that lets you open or close the roof remotely using the car’s key fob. Now, that’s nice.

Geneva 2014: 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 Finally Presented

2014 Porsche 911 GT3

Presented at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show, the new 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 boiled-up grand tourer will be officially the first Porsche ever to offer an active rear wheel steering system that will dramatically increase the car’s maneuverability (although you will probably have to spend some time adapting to it if you really want to become good at driving this monster.)

The turning rear wheels and the powerful 3.8-liter flat-six engine are responsible for the GT3’s outstanding performance on the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife race track. According to Porsche, the new car takes less than seven and a half minutes to complete a lap, which puts it in the same league with such tarmac scorchers as Pagani Zonda F Clubsport, 2010 Nissan GT-R and the red-hot 2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1.

2013 Shelby Focus ST Limited Edition

At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the legendary tuner Shelby American -the brand was founded in California more than half a century ago and, since then, introduced a number of custom-made cars that can be called nothing but iconic (like, really iconic: people actually worship them)- has revealed a souped-up version of the 2013 Ford Focus ST hot hatch. Although not as exciting as their 2009 Ford Shelby GT500KR and clearly not offering anything groundbreaking in term of available maximum power or acceleration time, the new 2013 Shelby Focus ST Limited Edition brings you a nice design package with custom interior and some other enhancements.

Caught in the Alps: 2014 BMW X5 Spy Photos

2014 BMW X5 logo

Traveling through Slovenian Alps just a day ago, I accidentally met a car transporter carrying a number of heavily camouflaged vehicles. One of them looked very much like the upcoming 2014 BMW X5 luxury SUV. The photos don’t reveal much in terms of general styling, but there are a couple of photos that will give you the idea on the vehicle’s rear suspension and exhaust system. Enjoy the photos after the jump!

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG tuned by Kubatech

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG tuned by Kubatech

The German chip-tuning specialist Kubatech has revealed its first ECU upgrade program for the gorgeous 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar. Although not as visually, um, impressive as similar tuning packages designed by, say, Mansory, this particular is also not as expensive either (well, if money is indeed an issue for a person buying an SLS AMG.)
