The 2012 BMW M5

Posted: December 6, 2011 by Adir Hassid in Car Inisghts, Car Reviews, Updates in the Car World

The BMW M5 has been the pinnacle of  BMW’s M  series of cars for quite some time now. It is powered by BMW’s Bavarian V-10 engine that produced about 500 HP and around 390 Lb-Ft of torque. The Previous generations of M5’s were the best of both worlds. You would get the comfort of a luxurious sedan, but the moment you step on it to make that yellow light, you will notice that you are going well above the speed limit without even trying. So why the update one may ask? Well, why not make the good better, BMW answered.  B.M.W. has released the new and updated 2012 M5, like its previous generation, the M5 is based on the 535 series. But the body is the only relevance between the the five series and the M5. Everything else is completely changed. As for the power-train the BMW has released a spanking new 4.4 liter twin-turbo V-8. As for its output this new V-8 produces 560 hp, raised 60 horses from the previous generation,and the torque has been brought up from a mere 390 Lb-Ft to a massive 500 Lb-Ft of torque. BMW claims that this torque will be available throughout the whole power-band of the engine. The previous generation of M5’s were always mocked for there plethora of settings for ride control and traction management. Suspension management now has 3 modes S1 (normal) S2 (Sport) and S3 (sport+), the higher the number, the stiffer the suspension. Traction manegement is either normal, M Dynamic Mode, or  off. So all in all if you want a luxurious sedan that seats four and hauls ass then this is the car for you.

Breaking News: The new updated 2013 Shelby GT500 has been announced. Ford fan’s have been in fear that the Camaro ZL1 will kick the the Gt500 off the podium, because of the ZL1’s 6.2 Liter supercharged V-8 producing 580 horse power and 556 Lb-Ft of torque. BUT FEAR NO LONGER!!!! The new Gt500 will be prooduce  a mind boggling 650 horsepower and a ludicrous 600 Lb-Ft of torque! Further mechanical revisions for the Gt500 are: a larger displacement (5.8 L instead of 5.4 L), a new Eaton series supercharger, a larger cooling fan, a higher-flowing inter-cooler pump, and a larger inter-cooler heat exchange. All these updates are what raised horsepower and torque by a 100 units on both sides. Now as for prosthetic updates there’s not much but there still defiantly a noticeable difference. The complete rear fascia has been updated. The taillights have been completely redesigned and they now compose of circular led’s. As for the front fascia, a new thick chin splitter, a new revised bottom grill, and the headlights are now HID’s with LED accents. Oh… and oh yea did i forget to mention that this Cobra goes 200+ MPH !!!

(Update for Alejandro) PS: As for the Gt and the V-6. The changes are not as dramatic as in the Gt500, but needles to say a whole bunch of bells and whistles have been added. Lets start with the V-6, like every other 2013 mustang model the V-6 (as well as the Gt) will be equipped with the new updated rear fascia that includes the nice new sleek led taillights. The V-6 will also sport a new more updated and modern grille followed by the hood. As for the V-6’s performance, the power-train has not changed. But what has changed is that the automatic transmissions now have a gear select mode. This has been long awaited in the sporty pony. As for the manual transmission the car now features an advanced program that will assist in hill start.The 2012’s V-6 performance package  is now available on both transmissions. Lets talk V-8. The V-8 is the more sensible decision of the trio (V-6,V-8,SC V-8). The Gt’s same 5.0 litre V-8 now produces 420 horsepower. This comes from a better tuned engine.(Fords racing team said that as they where developing the BOSS 302, they translated some of the specs to the V-8). The GT also has the same bells and whistles as the V-6 but they are slightly different so that you can tell the difference between the GT ans V-6. Also, similar to the V-6’s performance package, the 2012 Gt’s Brembo brake package will also be available on both transmissions.

A New 1965 Mustang for sale?

Posted: November 15, 2011 by jbwebsitebuilder in Car Inisghts, Special Review, Updates in the Car World

Do you want a brand new 1965 Mustang? Well before last month it would be really hard to find a good condition mustang from the 60’s for an affordable price. But everything has changed since Ford’s new announcement. Ford Motors will soon sell brand-new 1965 Ford Mustangs body’s for just $15,000 each. But there is one catch. You must assemble the car yourself.

Ford will be coming out with new stampings of the steel bodies for first-generation Mustang. Buyers can then assemble the mustang using whatever engine, axles, interior and other parts they can find on their own.

This is the ultimate customization experience for muscle car lovers. You get the body of the classic mustang that we all love and you get to put in your own finishing touches that you have always dreamed of adding.

Ford says the new shell body built has been improved only slightly with modern welding techniques and rustproofing. They also state the body out of the crate is ready for paint and assembly.

This is the ultimate muscle car experience for someone who is dedicated to working hard for what he wants and is ready for a adventure to find the exact parts he wants!

A new addition to the 2 second club!

Posted: November 10, 2011 by Adir Hassid in Car Inisghts, Updates in the Car World

When you hear that a car can go from  standstill to 60 miles per hour in only 2.7 seconds, you may think about cars like the 1.5 million dollar Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and the $ 400,000+ Porsche 911 Turbo S. Well, what if I told you that you can join this club for only $89,999 (mere pocket change in comparison to its competitors). Well, the vehicle that  joins this club is not some sort of a new affordable Ferrari or Lamborghini but rather, it is a Nissan. Yes you heard me right I said a Nissan. But this is no average Nissan, it is dubbed “Godzilla” for apparent reasons. It is the 2013 Nissan Gt-R.The 2012’s Gt-r successor. The update between the 2012 and 2013 Nissan Gt-R, is minute, but it is that minute update that helps it break the 3 second barrier. The 2013 Gt-R houses the same 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6, but instead of producing the “usual” 530 horsepower and 448 Lb-Ft of Torque it bumps up the power by 15 on each end. It now produces 545 horsepower and 463 Lb-Ft of torque. The 2013 revision also incorporates more efficient cooling ducts for the front brakes, slip-resistant seats, slightly re-tuned engine, and a Track-Pack option that shaves over 200 pound in weight. As for exterior updates, the only difference is that the under-body aerodynamics have been improved slightly, and new wheels. Rumor has it that the Gt-r will lap the Nurburg’ring faster than 7 minutes and 20 seconds. That’s faster than the Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda F.
