2014-Ford-Mustang-V8-GT-Coupe-The-Black-Edition-1

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.

05 03 02 01 04

Meet the 2014 SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Edition. Still powered by the same naturally aspirated 8.4 liter V10, it’s in the details where this thing really shines. The 2-door sports car has been drenched in a metallic matte paint job (unique to this particular Viper), contrasting bright orange brake calipers, carbon fiber hits throughout both the exterior and interior cabin of the vehicle, and Nappa leather paired with Alcantara seats within the cabin. For those of you looking to park this beauty in your garage, you best act fast, because this Viper is limited to just 50 units.

Nissan Bladeglider


 

01-bladeglider-660x439 02-bladeglider-660x469Nissan is out to reinvent road racing, first with the DeltaWing and then the ZEOD RC. Now it’s taking the lessons learned from both cars and applying them to road. And here’s the kicker: Nissan is actually considering putting it into production. This is the Nissan Bladeglider, and it’s a spitting image of its race-bound predecessors, with a triangular shape that’s both incredibly aerodynamic and super light thanks to a carbon fiber reinforced body shell. The front end is just over 3 feet wide, with two skinny tires tucked into the pointed nose and controlled by a Knight Rider-esque steering wheel. There’s seating for three inside the open-air cabin, with the driver’s seat mounted in the middle — à la the McLaren F1 — and sliding laterally towards the Lambo-hinged doors for quick ingress and egress. Two passenger seats and help contribute to its road-hugging 30:70 front-to-rear weight distribution. Nissan isn’t saying exactly what’s motivating the Bladeglider, only hinting that in-wheel electric motors will power the rear wheels, manipulating torque on the fly for maximum performance, with power provided by rear-mounted lithium-ion battery packs. The Bladeglider makes its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show this month, and according to Nissan it could “mature into a production car.”

Vertu Ti Ferrari Smartphone


Vertu-Ti-Ferrari-smartphone

Vertu has expanded its Ti line with a luxury smartphone whose design was inspired by the Ferrari F12 berlinetta. A limited edition of 2,013 smartphones will be produced and sold. The new Vertu Ti Ferrari is the result of a close collaboration between the luxury phone maker and the luxury sports car brand. Ferrari has supplied some of the red and black leather used in the seats of its sports cars for the leather accents along the smartphone’s casing. Vertu, in turn, has treated and conditioned the leather to ensure it will withstand the constant handling a smartphone is subject to. The smartphone’s casing is made of diamond-like carbon (DLC), a lightweight material ten times stronger than stainless steel, which Ferrari uses to protect its motors from extreme heat and friction. The back of the device is modeled after the aerodynamic lines of the F12 berlinetta, while the position of the supercar’s headlights is echoed in the position of the phone’s camera. The Vertu Ti Ferrari’s feature set is not particularly impressive. Equipped with a 3.7-inch screen, an 8MP photo camera at the back and a 1.3MP front camera for video chats, the smartphone runs under Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is equipped with Bluetooth, wifi and 3G+ connectivity. The start screen of the Vertu Ti Ferrari features the signature colors of the famous Italian car maker, and the Vertu for Ferrari App provides access to the latest Ferrari news from the brand’s social network pages and the automotive trade press. The on-screen clock is modeled after the F12 berlinetta’s tachometer, and the four available ringtones purr with the sound of the grand tourer’s V12 engine.

Having just premiered its sport quattro concept coupe at the 2013 frankfurt motor show, AUDI has unveiled a sculptural installation at the Die Neue Sammlung at the Pinakothek Der Moderne, which presents a full-size model of the 700 horsepower two-seater hardtop at the heart of it. The debut of the expansive wall-mounted work–commissioned by the cultural institution following the success of AUDI’s ‘design icons’exhibition presented there earlier this year–that will remain a part of the permanent collection of the die neue sammlung for at least five years. 1800 miniature models of the automotive company’s 1980’s UR-quattro cover the wall of the museum space, acting as a backdrop to the featured sports car. The small-scale maquettes have each been milled from a seven-kilogram block of aluminium–a material which AUDI is no stranger to, having gained expertise in working with it through their automotive engineering for many years. A metal which is often referenced to being the epitome of lightness and stability, each of the resulting UR-quattro replicas weigh 860 grams–manufactured in a small production run–and stand as a testament to AUDI’s toolmaking expertise. A mirror suspended from the ceiling, offers an endless perspective of the rows upon rows of miniatures which soar vertically upwards–an infinite space where the viewer is immersed in the world of AUDI.
