Aventador, All New Lambo Pushing 700hp

Lamborghini has always been known for their high horsepower pavement ripping works of art, this only makes it more difficult for them to raise the bar.  Their answer is the Aventador, a 700 horsepower V12 capable of doing 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and doing so in a recognizable canvas.

My first impression of the Aventador is that it looks like a stretched Gallardo, with slightly more aggressive lines.  I imagine the larger wheel base and stretched appearance lends itself to a more stable ride at max speed, somewhere around 217 mph.  Also, thanks to advancements in weight positioning, the 6.5 liter engine seated over the rear tires allows for breakneck 0-60 times of 2.9 seconds.

The Aventador comes in a variety of color combinations and options, including 2 solid paint options of either black, yellow, or optional white.  In addition, there are 4 different metallic colors, 4 pearl orange effects, and 3 different matte finishes.

How much does the Lamborghini Aventador cost?  If you have to ask, it doesn’t matter, especially considering all 2011 models have already been spoken for.  Ok, if you must know, the 2011 Aventador has a list price of $387,000.  Get in line now for the 2012 model year and bring your check book.

2011 Dodge Ram Laramie Longhorn Edition

Looking for a special edition Dodge Ram?  Then look no further than the 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn Edition, which will be available in the US come 1st quarter of 2011.  This uber package from Dodge offers some fairly amazing trim pieces, special interior stitching and a custom paint job.  It is evident the first time you lay eyes on a Laramie Longhorn that the 2011 Ram is unlike any other.

The first thing to notice will be the golden paint job, which accentuates the bottom of the 2011 Ram.  The golden lines follow the running boards, fenders, and even wrap the front bumper in a golden hue.  It’s an impressive color combination with the stark black, which causes the package to look very high end.

Inside expect some special stitched leather bucket seats, with intricate ‘western’ style line work.  The golden stitch on the black leather looks rustique and worthy of a Longhorn name.  In addition, the interior of the 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn gets real wood trim on the dash and door panels.  High end indeed.

Although the Dodge ram is capable of being a work horse, I’m not sure the Laramie Longhorn special edition will make it into the fields anytime soon.  However, the Laramie Longhorn is offered as an upgrade to the 1500, 2500, and pull hungry 3500 series 2011 Ram.  It’ll look good in the garage of for those quick trips to town to pickup supplies. 😉

2012 Dodge Durango Spy Pic

Dodge has code named the all new Durango ‘WD’, which appears to be slightly shorter than previous versions.  Although all we’ve seen so far are camouflaged pictures, featuring the all confusing zebra print, there are a few things that have been confirmed by the SUV manufacturer.

First the 2012 Dodge Durango will be based on the 2011 Cherokee unibody chassis.  Next, it’s expected that the 2012 Durango will have the same engine options as the current model Jeep Cherokee, meaning a 3.6 liter v6 and a 5.7 liter HEMI.2012 Dodge Durango

2011 Hyundai Sonata SE

Hyundai has started releasing a plethora of new advertising campaigns showcasing the new 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE .  From what I’ve seen it’s with good reason too, no wonder Jeff Bridges signed up to be the voice of Hyundai.  The new lines of the Sonata are what grabs your attention first, but wait till you hear what potential buyers have to look forward to.

First the options are what will up sell potential customers, like a touch-screen navigation system.  And my personal favorite a push button starter, which makes me feel like I’m starting a race car every time behind the wheel.  I know Hyundai isn’t the first, but it’s a nice touch to a sleek new model and looks right at home nestled in the dash.

Standard feature flare include iPod functionality and USB inputs.  This is standard attire for any Sonata SE buyer, so whether you are an avid Apple fan or just have a USB flash drive it’s easy to bring your tunes along for the ride.

The 2011 Sonata SE is going to be the most performance oriented Sonata of the 3 wearing the Sonata badge.  Although a lot of the description of ‘sport’ model relies on visual cues, fact is it’s only 2 horsepower more potent than the base GLS model.  Total power output for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE is 200 horsepower and 186 ft lb of torque.  It’s ample numbers to push the sedan up to speed and get your pass on when need be, but not likely to impress your Mustang friends.

To help with the Sonata’s shortcomings in power they have equipped it with a 6-speed transmission.  It’s an automatic, but also comes outfitted with paddle shifters to allow some interaction between the driver and machine.  Also, slamming through the paddles makes the Sonata SE feel a lot faster than it really is, just like any manual vehicle.  All in all, it’s looks will sell and options will get these cars moving off the lot.  I think Hyundai is doing a lot of things right, but with 300 horsepower engines making 30 miles per gallon with other manufacturers, perhaps it’s time to step up the power offerings.

You may remember the Sonata spy pics posted in May of last year, they did a great job of hiding the actual body lines.  Below are pictures of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE.
