The 2007 Audi R8 supercar, which is destined to fight its way through the ranks of such road warriors as the Italian Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, the British Aston Martin V8 Vantage and, of course, the stunning (albeit somewhat archaic in its design) German beauty Porsche 997 Carrera 4S, will feature a permanent 4WD quattro system with viscous coupling (it is reported to be outsourced from Volkswagen) and will be motivated by a 4.2-liter 420hp V8 FSI transplanted directly from the gorgeous Audi RS4 compact sports-sedan.
General Motors announced yesterday that the new 2007 Hummer H3x mid-size SUV will be available in August at a base price of $38,065. Although, for a vehicle of this sort, the price seems a bit steep, GM tries to sweeten the deal with some extra standard equipment that you would otherwise have to buy either from third party sellers, or get from Hummer itself, which usually means that they would try to sell you a cheap chromed bull-bar at a price of the Golden Gate Bridge.
