550 bhp V8 Caterham


Would you like a 2.4 liter V8 engine car with carbon fiber cockpit, sophisticated launch, Kevlar seats and traction control system on your car?
Well, I would love one! So, Caterham Cars in association with RS Performance presents you a “crazy car”.
The new Levante – named after a wind that strikes the coast of Fuerteventura – boasts more than 1,000 bhp-per-tonne, twice that of a Bugatti Veyron. Levante uses a supercharged V8 developed by Russell Savory, the man behind the initials of RS Performance.
The great Levante car needs less than 3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph and the top speed is somewhere around 150 mph.
Now, I guess you all ask how much this beauty costs. The Caterham supercharged model costs £115,000. Do you have enough money to buy it?

240 Mph Wooden Supercar

I bet you don’t believe me, but it is true! The car presented in the feature images is really made out of wood: plywood, maple and MDF. It is the creation of designer Joe Harmon, a North Carolina State University student who worked with fellow undergraduate designers to create the world’s first wooden supercar.
Harmon declared: “We aren’t trying to sell anything, we aren’t trying to save the world, and we aren’t advocating that everyone should drive a wooden car. This project is a scholastic endeavour in which we are simply trying to explore materials, learn, teach, share ideas and stimulate creativity.

New Ford Fiesta

After a long time of expectations, Ford decided to present the new Fiesta model. If you ask me, I will surely love to drive one, because it looks amazing.
The car is based on the Verve concept regarding the design and there are some rumors that the new small class car will not be named Fiesta and it would probably be Verve. But we don’t have to believe all the rumors, because I’m more than sure that the new model will be Fiesta, too. The car adopts a new and fresh style with impressive hi-tech accessories and functionality.
The front size impress with massive mask and great lights that offers a lot of originality in its fight with other models, like: Opel Corsa, Fiat Grande Punto and even Mazda2.
