Fiesta Time: 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost Review

Ford Fiesta 1.0 SFE EcoBoost Review

Over the years I’ve driven quite a few cars, some of these cars have been very powerful, like the Challenger SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower. As much as I love cars that’ll knock your socks off, there’s something special about small, lightweight cars. I recently reviewed the Ford Fiesta ST (read my review here); I can honestly say that was one of the best cars I’ve ever driven.

On the subject of massive horsepower and the Fiesta, I recently got a chance to review a Fiesta that had the smallest engine I’ve ever tested, in a car that is. The Ford Fiesta 1.0 SFE EcoBoost is the car I drove, featuring a small 1.0 liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual. [Read more...]

Toyota FT-1 Graphite Concept

Toyota_FT-1_Graphite_1

Earlier this year Toyota shocked the world (well, maybe not the world, but certainly yours truly) when it showcased the stunning FT-1 concept car, a spiritual successor to the legendary Supra sports car. The FT-1 is one sexy looking car, in my humble opinion, with a very curvaceous body that makes me think wicked thoughts.

When Toyota initially showcased the FT-1, it was painted red, which is a perfect color for a sports car but now they’ve unveiled the FT-1 Graphite. There isn’t anything new about this version of the concept sports car, but the grey color does show a bit more details of the sexy body. The interior also has been upgraded with tan leather. And that’s about it… [Read more...]

After the introduction of the Challenger Hellcat, it was rumored that Dodge will be putting that engine in another car and it wasn’t a very well-kept secret, most of us in the auto industry had expected it to be the Charger. So what do you get in the Charger SRT Hellcat? [Read more...]

You want a sports car that can go really fast and the 0-60 times is below 5 seconds? But you’re a family man or need to drive around clients, so you should get a mid-sized luxury sports sedan…but you also need to do a bit of off-roading once in a while. Well you could get another vehicle, but that’s just too much of a hassle. How about you get the new Range Rover Sport SVR SUV?

The Range Rover Sport SVR has plenty of room for four adults; it can go off-road with ease, and is very fast. How fast is it? Well, it’s the fastest SUV around the famed Nurburgring race track, with a best lap time of 8 minutes and 14 seconds, and it’s the fastest production Land Rover vehicle ever. [Read more...]

There are about 15 Bugatti Veyron supercars left unsold at the factory, out of the production cap of 450. Bugatti has been dressing up the remaining inventory to make these powerful cars more attractive to (ultra-wealthy) buyers.

This line consists of 5 cars and Bugatti will unveil the 6th and last car in the series at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. [Read more...]
