Hennessey tunes the Ferrari 458 Italia to give 728bhp, meanwhile Ford shows new SUV concept
14 August 2013

Hennessey has tuned the Ferrari 458, giving it 728bhp and shortening the 0-62mph sprint to 2.8 seconds. The car gets a new exhaust system and 20-inch black alloy wheels. The tuning costs £38,790 on top of the Ferrari's list price of £178,526.

Hyundai will use the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance this weekend to showcase a new 'human-machine interface' design. Shown in action on the HCD-14 Genesis concept car, the new system is reported to use eye-tracking and hand gestures to navigate infotainment and dashboard displays. 

Ford has revealed a new seven-seat concept version of its Ranger. Named the Ford Everest, the new car is expected to hit the Australian market in 2015. The car could possibly be sold in North America, too.

Have they nothing better to do than adding turbos and torque to the 458? Who would any owner pay for that? Will it be at all possible to sell the car on?

OK so Ford US decide to kill off the Falcon and the Territory in Australia and replace it with a vehicle likely to be made in Thailand... popular move...

 

The Territory could have been a good car for the UK market, especially in diesel form and 7 seats; would have rivalled the Kia Sorento etc really well. Bit of too little to late, as they only introduced the diesel recently.

Why is the Hyundai sporting a badge that looks very MINI / Aston Martin like??
