Known for their glowing red-hot versions of production cars and trucks, the legendary Ford Special Vehicle Team (aka SVT) has prepared an even more powerful variety of the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor half-ton truck. Planned to be available for order starting December 1, 2009 at a price of $44,995 and equipped with a lot more powerful engine, the vehicle will be faster than a lot of German car-based SUVs (well, at least on a straight line.)
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.
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.
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.
Ford’s components supplier Blue Fusion is going to unveil its Chevrolet Corvette C6-based Rossi 66 sports car at the upcoming 2008 SEMA show set to be held November 4 – November 7, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The new Jeep Wrangler Ultimate concept vehicle will be demonstrated at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas from 30th October to 2nd November.

The California-based design studio Anteros Marketing is getting itself ready to present the new Anteros XTR Hardtop and XTR Targa sports cars at the upcoming SEMA auto show. Based on Chevrolet Corvette Z06/C6 components, the XTR family heavily draws its inspiration on the old-school European design of the mid-XX century with a little post-modern twist to it.
Starting September, 2006, Volkswagen will offer an aerodynamic package for their current 2007 VW Passat family sedan.
