Hyundai Veloster Concept Pics

Every car maker has a history of creating concept cars that will never see the light of day.  Unfortunately these are always the most interesting, just not always the most practical.  Hyundai is no different, which is made obvious by the pictures of their Veloster concept suv type crossover.

The Veloster is explained as a coupe, redesigned to appeal to first time late teen buyers.  It looks like a slim, futuristic, small SUV on steroids.  Big swoops, bulbous roof line and fenders, mark a vehicle built for handling, power, and possibly evening pulling a trailer.

Most likely the Veloster will never be produced, but its still fun to imagine and look at.

Lamborghini Jota Not Teaser Pics

Lamborghini has announced that the Jota will not be debuted at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.  So, we can rule out the Jota as being the focus of the Lamborghini teaser pics released this past month.  Instead, Lamborghini promises to debut an all new technology or perhaps some technology new to the Italian super car maker.

Still, this post isn’t lost on bad news alone, thanks to AutoEvolution.com we also have some amazing spy pics of the Jota on the Lamborghini test track.

Lamborghini Super Car Pic

Lamborghini has released another image teasing us about the upcoming supercar that will debut at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.  The Lamborghini rumor mill suggests that the new super car will focus less on top speed and more on handling and acceleration.  This is a step away from previous models goals of trying to hit the trifecta of top speed, acceleration, and handling.

Below are the two images released by Lamborghini, which are nothing more than a tease of what will be coming.  If it’s from Lamborghini I can guarantee the buzz is real and what pops up at Paris will be the new poster child for what the common man will never attain.

2011 Ford F-150 6.2 Liter Spy Pic

The fast eyes over at PickUpTrucks.com have already got spy pics of the new 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat Limited, with a 6.2 liter V8.  The truck is a massive step in the opposite direction of getting smaller is getting greener, but man is it a sharp looking truck.  Amazingly enough, this spy pic doesn’t even have zebra stripes or camouflage of any kind, even complete with badging.

My problem with the new 6.2 liter V8 is the serious lack of horsepower.  Currently Ford has produced the 2011 Mustang GT, which has a 5.0 liter engine and produces over 400 horsepower.  Yet, this new 6.2 liter produces just 411 horsepower and 434 lb ft of torque.  The power gains just doesn’t seem to warrant the research and development into the 6.2.

Consider that the 2011 Ford F150 Lariat is just like previous years, it will be built in limited production.  For example, just as far back as 2008 only 5,000 units were produced.  Likely demand plays a small roll in this luxury pickup truck, with a small bed, but plenty of room for pasengers.
