the F Rapide wallpaper

the Rapide will be the first ever Aston Martin built outside of the United Kingdom, thanks to a partnership up with Magna Steyr. Given a strong interest in the Rapide, Aston Martin says it will build between 1,000 and 2,000 units per year, up from an original estimate of 500 or less. Like Aston’s other models, the Rapide is built on the company’s VH (Vertical/Horizontal) architecture — the same that underpins the DB9. The Rapide will also borrow its twelve-cylinder powerplant from the DB9, although power will be increased from 450 horsepower to 470. With that power routed through a six-speed transmission — featuring Aston Martin’s Touchtronic control — the Rapide should make the sprint from 0-60 in under five seconds, on its way to a top speed of 180 mph. Expect to see the Aston Martin Rapide to hit the market sometime during 2010, with a price tag in the $200,000 range.

Comparison: 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 vs 2010 Hennessey Camaro HPE550 vs 2010 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500


Customers who shell out the cash for a Challenger SRT8 -- including the $2,100 gas-guzzler tax -- receive a car that is pretty much fully loaded. Only three options are available: a set of summer tires instead of all-season rubber for $50, a MyGig Multimedia Infotainment system with navigation for $890 and a power sunroof for $950.


As with most SRT8 applications, the 6.1L HEMI kicks out 425 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

A convertible is also expected to bow sometime in 2009 as a 2010 mode, with all three trim levels available.

Manual transmission cars come with Chrysler's Hill Start Assist technology -- as used in the Dodge Ram, Jeep Commander, Grand Cherokee and the Liberty -- which maintains brake pressure until throttle is applied.

Dodge also offers a Trak Pack, which appears to be little more than a marketing name given to a specific package of transmission, shifter and gearing.


Although Dodge has yet to disclose performance numbers on lesser models, it did announce some performance numbers for the 2008 Challenger SRT8 equipped with an automatic transmission. The sprint from zero to 60 take s4.9 seconds with the car topping out at about 170 mph.

But in addition the the car's straight line performance, Dodge also emphasized the Challenger's braking and cornering abilities.

Additionally, the car can go from 0-100-0 in 16.5 seconds.

Despite the Challenger's muscle-car image, it handles more like a midsize sports car. According to Dodge, the Challenger SRT8 cirlces the skid pad at .9 gs.


Although the production Challenger is very close to the concept in design, there have been a few tweaks. Most noticeably, the Challenger has gained a B-pillar for structural reasons. Other less noticeable changes include taillights that have been divided into sections, a simplified grille, larger side mirrors, and more typical door handles.

Lexus LF-A Concept wallpaper

Toyota , the World's Largest Automaker. Fortunately, that finally means a return to building fun-to-drive cars after years of offering virtually nothing to tempt the enthusiast market. We can only hope that some of that sporting DNA finds its way into the rest of the automaker's staid lineup as well.

"The severe drop in the economy and auto market has created some of the most challenging times Toyota has ever faced," says new Toyota Prez Akio Toyoda. "I aim to take us back to what made Toyota successful for many years - making high-quality products at an affordable price."

According to Toyoda, two of the most eagerly anticipated (non-hybrid) vehicles from Toyota in years are moving ahead at full steam. First of all, the seemingly forever-delayed Lexus LF-A sportscar is back on track and headed Stateside. Secondly, Toyoda reconfirmed earlier reports that the planned affordable sportscar made in partnership with Subaru is on its way within the next few years. Finally, change we can believe in!
