British automaker, Bentley Motors Limited, has only two model lines under its belt. Naturally, this information means that the entire car industry is looking forward to more models since the British brand has so much room left for expansion.
Recently, the newly revamped and redesigned version of the brand’s Continental GT has rolled out into showrooms. Now, another new model—the Continental GT Drop-Top model—is set to be revealed at the Frankfurt show this year. Of course, we all couldn’t wait to see the Speed and Flying Spur variants.
Another Bentley model, the Mulsann, has also been speculated to come up with a convertible and coupe versions some time soon. According to experts’ speculations and reports, the British carmaker is set to unveil new model lines one of which involves an SUV model. Ironically, after all the talks of expansion, it has been said that the British brand is planning to economize.
The new Bentley Continental models will have an additional 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine plus the optional 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engine. As for engine power, now official word has been released but we assume it will be somewhere between 567 horsepower. According to rumors, these models will be revealed at the Detroit Auto Show this January. Perhaps by then, we would get a clearer picture of the engine speculations along with other details pertaining to exterior and interior aspects. Let’s keep tuned to that and see what the British brand has to offer this year and the next.
McLaren is set to debut their reworked McLaren MP4 12C GT3 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend. The vehicle is their first racing car of McLaren outside of the Formula 1 circuit ever since the F1 GTR.
The GT3 traces its origin to the new MP4 12C supercar by McLaren only it is revised to even make it perform better.
The McLaren engineers and designers changed the radiator and gearbox cooler setup of the MP4 12 C to give the GT3 more margin of temperature to achieve its peak performance. They also upgraded its aerodynamic components and gave the new race car louvers and diffusers on the front bumper, rear wing, door blade, and front splitter. All of the aerodynamic components were fabricated from carbon fiber.
Just like its sibling road car, the MP4 12C GT3 also has a chassis made from carbon fiber. McLaren also equipped the car with the same steering wheel as the MP4-24 F1 car. The team will be tweaking the GT3 during the 2011 season while twenty cars are set to be delivered for privateer teams by next year.
The supercar will still depend on its M838T McLaren 3.8L V8 twin turbo engine but it will be detuned to output 500 PS. They are also using a lighter gear box to improve the weight of the car by eighty kilos and give it a more optimal power balanced with its all over performance.
In this blog, we have talked a lot about the cars of the future and how they are some of the best cars out there – but what about the cars from the past? Well, I can tell you for sure that the VW bus is one of those cars that I would absolutely love to own and one of those things that is my dream car.
Dream cars are something unobtainable and I have to say that me … getting one of these awesome cars is not exactly obtainable right at this moment but man, would I love it. You want a dream car and a blast from the past? This is definitely it.
If you can afford it – make sure that you dip into the longer and best side of VW, I can promise they are awesome!
In this blog we have went through everything from 2010 cars all the way to 2011 cars but one thing that we have not touched on is the antique car. To me – this is a car that is different and a car that is definitely on my dream car list.
Antique cars are classic, they are beautiful and there are only so many left and that is part of their appeal. I know that if I had an antique car, there is no way in hell I wouldn’t drive it around and show it off. Antique cars are so perfect and if you keep them restored, they are also worth a lot of money.
That is the cool thing about antique cars, you can get them restored or you can restore them to their natural luster and beauty and that is part of the appeal of these cars!
Now that we have talked about just some of the newest cars that are coming out and all of the dream cars out there – let’s touch base on the beautiful, the enchanting and the totally awesome 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster! This is a roaster that I would absolutely love to have … I mean, look at it! It is a car that is going to be so beautiful, so breathtaking and so fast, that everyone is going to want it.
The greatest thing I think about the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster is the fact that it is not the typical run-of-the-mill type of car. It is a car that is actually different looking and while it might be a convertible, it is still one of the sportiest looking cars I think.
While right now – no word on pricing for the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster, I have to say that I think that it is going to go fast.
EBay is a place that you can truly find everything in the world. Earlier today, when I logged onto eBay, what I found was a beautiful, beautiful Mserati MC12 Corsa #3 – this car is a 2006 and I have to say that this is a car that many people do not know about.
Maserati is a brand that is not only very, very rare but if you are lucky enough to actually have the money to buy a car like this? Oh, it is going to cost you a pretty, pretty penny.
The Mserati MC12 Corsa #3 is actually one of the best cars in the world when you are in the market for a sports car – it is certainly one car that I know will go for a heck of a lot of money and the proud owner will certainly be willing to pay it. After all, who would sell a used Mserati MC12 Corsa #3?
If there is one car that I have been dreaming about for decades – it has got to be the Pontiac Solstice. This car is not only one of the sexiest cars that Pontiac has come up with, but it is also one of the fastest. While I know that they are doing away with the Pontiac brand for good – I truly hope that people hold onto the Pontiac Solstice and sell them eventually … when they are worth a lot of money.
Now, onto the specs of this beautiful car; the Pontiac Solstice is actually equipped with a pretty standard 2.4-liter, 173 HP engine that can achieve about 19 miles to the gallon in the city and 25 on the highway. This car is a 5-speed manual with overdrive and the price ranges anywhere from $24,000 all the way up to about $31,000.
The Pontiac Solstice is the way to go – in my mind at least. The body is chic and sleek and it just looks beautiful from bumper to bumper!
If there is one car out there that truly is a dream car, it has got to be the 2010 Ford Mustang. This particular car is by far one of the best looking cars in the world and it has been the premier dream car for years and years. However – what makes this particular car so attractive and a dream car? For one, I think it has got to be the status – when you tell people that you own a Mustang, they look at your differently.
Another reason why the Mustang has got to be one of the best cars on the market is because of the beauty of it. The Ford Mustang is something that is so beautiful looking and a lot of cars are actually modeled after the Mustang and that is pretty cool isn’t it?
So if you are looking for a dream car – the Ford Mustang has got to be the car that you are looking for!
Although the economy is somewhat crumbling and the automotive industry is falling down, there is still some rooms for dream cars and I have to say that the 2010 Lotus Evora is definitely my dream car. This incredible car is the all new Lotus – the very first Lotus since 1995 actually and it is larger, most luxurious and definitely pricier than any other Lotus in the world. We all know that the 2010 Lotus Evora is going to be awesome but do you know how awesome?
Well, what you should know about the Lotus brand is the fact that while they do not sell that many cars a year, the cars that they do sell are of incredible quality and to be honest, they are incredibly exotic and all around great. The 2010 Lotus Evora has riveted and bonded aluminum architecture and it is actually 21.9 inches longer than the 1995 Elise.
This car is absolutely impeccable all around and honestly if you want a dream car, the 2010 Lotus Evora should be it!
We all know that the Abt R8 Sports Car is definitely one of the best cars on the market, but did you know that this car specifically is absolutely one of the most incredible sports cars in the world, based on the already pretty sick R8 by Audi? It is right up there with a Lamborghini or a Porsche along with a Ferrari. The technology that has gone into the Abt R8 Sports Car is absolutely incredible and it is absolutely beautiful all around.
Everything from the front all the way to the back looks beautiful and this car is actually a top race car. It has a 530 HP, 4.2 liter V8 engine with a super charger. It also sits on standard 20-inch BR wheels, which are extremely stylish yet durable all around. This car can go from 0 to 100km’s in just 3.9 seconds and the top speed for this particular car is going to be about 317 km.
So really – wouldn’t this car be at the top of your list for dream cars?
