The cats out of the bag, literally. After a long wait, we finally are able to bring you Vancouver’s first Liberty Walk Dodge Challenger Hellcat. This 700hp beast has been in our minds for a long long time, and it is a great feeling to see it take shape. As you can see on the exterior, we utilized the front and rear fender flares from Liberty Walk.

The electro-hydraulic power roof system features multilayer construction – including acoustic and thermal barriers – designed for a comfortable, quiet driving experience in all seasons. The top emulates the sleek silhouette of the Camaro coupe.
“The 2016 Camaro coupe will set the benchmark for the segment in terms of technology, performance and design,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “Adding the most sophisticated top in the segment brings another level of refinement – and driving enjoyment – to the Camaro convertible.”
Muscle cars have become something of a cult movie staple over the last few decades and such success is reflected in the amount of fans now learning how to restore them.
Muscle cars occupy a special place in the heart of vintage cars fans and collectors alike. They are typically adorned with only two doors, 300 or more horsepower (funnily enough, cars with less than 300 horsepower are called ‘pony cars’) and usually a V8 motor.
Muscle cars production and popularity reached their peak towards the end of the 1960’s when they became the cars of choice for young rebellious crowds in search of a bit of thrill.
Mopar enthusiasts that feel the need to enhance the look and performance of their new 2015 Dodge Charger R/T can now do exactly that with a new Mopar ’15 performance kit. With just 50 units available, authorized dealerships are now accepting orders for the limited-edition Mopar ’15 kits for an MSRP of $3,550 with delivery to begin in early June.
“Mopar has a long history of delivering to enthusiasts performance and customization in unique and convenient packages,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO — Mopar Brand Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA. “We are now shifting into another gear and offering a limited-edition kit that will allow customers to really enhance the performance and look of their Dodge Charger R/T.”
The 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.
For 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.
There 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.
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.
Earlier 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.
Galpin 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.
