The last weekend of July is over and so is Joel Ewanick’s reign at GM. Here’s what else happened…
The 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is clearly looking to replace Bumblebee in the Transformers movie series. What a poseur. Even InsideLine has dubbed the Grand Sport’s yellow coat of paint and black accents the “Bumblebee Livery.” Since only 150 are slated for production and 45 have been sold, inventory is quickly becoming polar bear-rare and it’s not everyday you come across yellow leather seats either. If you happen to be hanging out in the UAE, check out the $2.05 million dollar vehicle in person. It is premiering at the 2012 Qatar Auto Show from January 25-28.
We caught a lot of flack for naming the BMW M3 Performance Edition a cool used car of the future. Yes, everyone knows the BMW M3 is fast and expensive, but the better choice when it comes to performance and value is the CTS-V, obviously. That’s why this week, the Mojo Motors Blog presents the D3 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe nicknamed “Le Monstre.”
Electric cars and plug-in hybrids aren’t typically seen as being cool cars because they’re not. The Jaguar C-X75 is an exception and a cool used car of the future for a few reasons.
- It’s a hybrid supercar
- Each wheel has its own electric engine that total up to 700+ horsepower
- It will be built by a Formula-1 racing team
- Zero to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds
- Top speed of over 200 MPH
The Huayra is the newest automobile released from Italian automaker Pagani. Their last stroke of genius came in the form of the Pagani Zonda, a mid-engined super car with a V12. No big deal. The Huayra, pronounced “h-wire-a” also packs a punch of its own. Make the jump to get the scoop.
Here’s a quick and unsophisticated history lesson. Films become popular in the early 1900’s, right around the same time as automobiles. The first mainstream feature film in America was released in 1912. The first automobile, the Ford Model T, was released in 1908. Since then, nearly one bazillion films have been produced and probably just as many cars too. Over one hundred years later, cars have become integral parts, even characters, in some of the greatest movies.
