2010 Ford Transit 260 SportVan limited edition (UK)

2010 Ford Transit 260 SportVan limited edition (UK)

Celebrating a tremendous success of the family in its stronghold, the British branch of the global brand has issued a special edition 2010 Ford Transit SportVan commercial vehicle.

Looking a bit like a fire truck with its bright red paint with a pair of white stripes, the commercial van offers the usual combination of visual sportiness of its exterior with a bit disappointingly anemic diesel engine. However, if you don’t plan to take the van to Silverstone (you don’t, do you?), the vehicle still seems like a nice choice thanks to numerous interior and exterior enhancements that come as a part of the package.

2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition

The reputable Swiss watch maker that is known for their love to all things automotive and the Italian coachbuilder have jointly developed a 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition supercar. While on the photos above and below the vehicle looks just like another Gallardo with a fancy tuning package, it is in fact a lot more superior beast to a production model. Using invaluable experience that both companies have gained while participating a racing series sponsored by the watchmaking brand, they created a very interesting sports car that will easily fulfil your need for speed.

SEMA 2009: 2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet FR500CJ

SEMA 2009: 2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet FR500CJ

At the upcoming SEMA 2009 tuning show in Las Vegas, FoMoCo is going to present its new 2010 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet FR500CJ drag racer, a sequel of the last year’s 2008 Mustang Cobra Jet limited edition model. Perhaps, the ugliest Mustang you have ever seen although, being a custom cruiser enthusiast for many years, I can somehow get the appeal of a car that seems to be deliberately exaggerating most of its weakest design points just in order to look the baddest-ass hardest-case on the block.

SEMA 2009: 2010 Hennessey HPE700 LS9 Camaro

The American coach-builder Hennessey Performance Engineering will reveal its badass 2010 Hennessey HPE700 Camaro supercar on Tuesday, November 3 at the upcoming Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, 2009 (and usually mostly referred to simply as SEMA) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Judging by its exterior, the new customized vehicle is built around a recently presented 2010 Camaro SS two-door sports coupe, which basically means that it was especially easy for the tuning specialist to match powerful engine with deliciously retro-styled, yet muscular exterior.

SEMA 2009: 405hp 2010 Lexus IS 350C tuned by Fox Marketing

SEMA 2009: 405hp 2010 Lexus IS 350C tuned by Fox Marketing

At the upcoming SEMA 2009 show, the American tuning studio Fox Marketing is going to present its new upgrade program for the 2010 Lexus IS 350C luxury sports convertible. Its looks like the main idea behind the new tuning package is to turn a convertible, which is in its base form a kind of vehicle that is more luxurious than sporty, into a real sports car. It is clear that, to accomplish this objective, an ugly set of nicely painted plastic just wasn’t enough: the Japanese open-top needed to have a comprehensive engine upgrade program and that’s what it received.

2010 Nissan Rogue Krom (Limited) Edition

The Japanese brand will soon start selling its 2010 Nissan Rogue Krom Edition compact city crossover. Known in Europe as Nissan Qashqai, the compact SUV is quite popular there thanks to a nice combination of small exterior that makes it fairly easy to park without losing too much paint on bumpers even in busy cities like Paris and London, adequate fuel economy with proportionally low carbon footprint, and, relatively low price and cost of ownership.
