2015 All-Electric Audi R8 E-Tron


Fahraufnahme    Farbe: Crescendorot

When the Audi E-Tron was originally unveiled, the main concern for the German auto maker was the 130-mile battery range. Over the years however, Audi has continued to work on the vehicle, and is now getting more than the double the output, with a battery life of 280 miles. That may not seem like a ton of range, but you have to remember that the 2-door pumps out 376 horsepower and 500+ lb-ft of torque – a setup that’s good for a zero to sixty time of 4.2 seconds. The vehicle’s production will be extremely limited, and will only be sold to customers upon request. It’s definitely a good start for what looks to be a promising future for the electric car segment.

U.S. based auto maker Ford has officially unveiled their latest limited edition model in the 2014 Ford Mustang V8 GT Coupe The Black Edition. This 2-door sports car is drenched in a jet black paint job, and the blacked-out theme continues all throughout. The 19-inch aluminum wheels have been finished off with black accents, and the entire interior is black as well. The Black edition Mustang also features a three-layer structured glass roof that blocks 90 percent of infrared rays along with 96 percent of ultraviolet rays. Now for the good stuff. This Mustang is packed with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that puts down 426 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission (unfortunately no manual version is available). The vehicle is limited to just 40 units, will only be available in Japan, and will sell for roughly $50,000 when it releases on March 15th.
