Ford Mustang Fastback GT Premium 5.0L V8 by GeigerCars

2015 GeigerCars Ford Mustang Fastback GT Premium Front AngleThe centrepiece of the new Ford Mustang Fastback GT Premium is its 5.0-liter V8 engine, which now sends significantly more power to the rear wheels thanks to a supercharger installation: The boosted motor now delivers a sensational 709 hp, with 706 Nm of torque.

These big numbers give the six-speed manual Mustang GT the raw performance that its masculine appearance suggests. Top speed of this thundering wild horse rises to 305 km/h, with the benchmark 0-100km/h falling in just 3.9 seconds along the way. The cost of this conversion over and above the basic price of the Ford Mustang Fastback GT Premium is just 18,900 Euro.

2016 Ford Mustang Front AngleFor the 2016 model year, Mustang fastback and convertible welcome the return of the iconic California Special Package and Pony Package —two iconic Mustang trim levels made popular in the 1960s. Several other new options, including new stripes and wheels, allow owners to make their pony car as individual as they are.

Fans have been clamoring for the return of hood vent-integrated turn signals for years, and in a nod to heritage Ford is honoring the request, bringing back the popular feature as standard equipment for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT. First offered on the 1967 Mustang, secondary indicators in the hood vents would come to represent an iconic piece of pony car DNA. Now, this segment-exclusive feature will serve as an additional “heads-up” for Mustang GT drivers.

2015 ROUSH Performance Ford Mustang Stage 3

2015 ROUSH Performance Ford Mustang Stage 3 Front AngleThere is nothing quite as intense as the raw power of a 5.0L V8 engine. Add ROUSH Performance’s new 2015 2.3L TVS supercharger to the mix, and you’ve got a whole new beast on your hands. The all-new 2015 Stage 3 Mustang is a force to be reckoned with.

The 2015 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is the most powerful and well-balanced production Mustang to launch out of the ROUSH Performance garage. For starters, standard features include a ROUSH Quad-Tip exhaust (with the ROUSH Active Exhaust System as an optional add-on), and of course, the fierce new “R7” aerobody, complete with graphics and badging. Twists and turns are no match for the RS3, which comes equipped with a standard single adjustable coilover suspension system, with an optional competition-tuned 3-way adjustable system available.

Are Your Shocks Worn Out?

Apr

What exactly do the shock absorbers on your car do?  Silly question, right?  Everyone knows they absorb the bumps and shocks that occur when you drive your car on bumpy roads.  If a car didn’t have shock absorbers, every time you hit a bump, the whole car would jump around?

Well, as it turns out, they have nothing to do with absorbing shocks.  The springs, either coil or leaf-style, that are on each wheel of your car absorb the shocks and bumps.  What the shock absorbers do is dampen the bouncing of the springs so your car doesn’t bounce up and down after hitting a bump.  Technically, shocks should be called “Spring Dampeners” not “Shock Absorbers”.

There are many warning signs that tell you when your shock absorbers need replacing.  When you hit a bump, does your car bounce up and down several times before settling down?  If so, your shocks may need to be replaced. Other signs are exaggerated body lean in corners or your front end dives down when you apply your brakes hard.

2015 Saleen Ford Mustang S302 Black Label Front AngleEarlier this year, Saleen Automotive released their 2015 White and Yellow Label 302 Mustangs to much fanfare. To round out their fleet, Saleen pulled out all the stops and developed one of the best Mustangs to date. This car is set to change the way pony cars are looked at from here on out. At a one-of-a-kind event in Downtown LA, Saleen raised the curtain on the latest pony car out of their Corona, CA headquarters.

2015 GAS-Fisker Ford Mustang Rocket Front AngleGalpin Auto Sports (GAS) and Henrik Fisker announced today the start of low-volume production on the 725hp coach-built super Mustang dubbed “The Rocket,” which was first unveiled as a prototype last November during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first production model will make its world debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, March 14, where a select number of media will also have the opportunity to drive it.

Challenger SRT Hellcat Coming in Europe

2015 GeigerCars Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Front AngleSRT stands for ‘Street and Racing Technology’, an appropriate tag for the Challenger SRT Hellcat, since this new king of the muscle cars is equally at home on the road, track or 1/4-mile drag strip.

The 6.2-litre V8 that powers the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is based on the larger displacement 6.4-litre, 492 hp engine of the Challenger SRT 392.

But where the SRT 392’s motor is naturally-aspirated, the Hellcat’s bent-crank V8 dances to the beat of a twin-screw supercharger.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Front AngleTo balance performance and efficiency, the Z06 leverages the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray – direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing – and leverages them with a new, more efficient supercharger. Combined with the fuel-efficient transmissions, aerodynamic design and lightweight construction, they help make the new Z06 surprisingly frugal.

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is the Most track-Capable Ever

Feb

2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Front AngleThe 2015 Camaro Z/28 is the most track-capable model in its history, building on the legacy of the original SCCA Trans Am-series contender introduced in 1967. While the new Camaro Z/28 is not intended to compete in a specific race series, it is solely focused on track capability. In fact, its unique exterior is designed like a race car to produce downforce that presses the car against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration – and faster lap times.
