RK Motors Charlotte offers this awe-inspiring powerful 1932 Ford Roadster with 502/510 HP. Such fancy hot rod is estimated at US $119,900.00 and here are the details with many photos! Check out the car description quoted:
In the world of modern hot rodding, a top notch build is all about components and pedigree. That’s why Boyd Coddington was dubbed ‘The Hot Rod King’. He had an uncanny ability to take a vintage car and radically transform it using custom fabricated components and a keen eye for outrageous design. During the 90s Coddington hired a talented young designer by the name of Chip Foose and together they would create some of the most timeless and unique hot rods ever put on four wheels. Based on the Boydster show car originally penned by Chip Foose, this spectacular 1932 Boydster roadster features the absolute best of everything from its custom pearl flames to its fully chromed 502 Ram jet engine; and in addition to being a feature car in American Rodder magazine, has taken home trophies from some of the most exclusive hot rod shows in the country.

The chase is on, this November. In the second part of November, the world of racing games as we know it will change. At least this is the promise made by EA and Criterion Games when it comes to the release of the latest Need for Speed title, perhaps the most anticipated in years, Hot Pursuit.
Until the game arrives in stores though, EA thought to taunt us some more with the extraordinary cars which will be featured in the game. Enter a new promo video, this time for real: real cars, real road, real people.
And not just your everyday people. EA and Criterion called upon British grime music band Roll Deep and the man formerly known as the Stig, Ben Collins, for a little chase-me-down the street gimmick.
The video is just a teaser to a complete chase between a pair of Lambos Porsche 911 GT3s. How it all worked out we’ll see on November 8th.
Hot Pursuit, a revival of the successful original title, will introduce a whole new feature for online play, called Need for Speed Autolog. Through Autolog, players can compare racing stats and automatically get personalized gameplay recommendations.
It features pretty much all the cars which represent something in today’s world, including Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ford Shelby GT500, Audi TT RS Coupe, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S and Dodge Challenger SRT8. The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Ford Shelby GT500 will only be available in the Limited Edition version of the game.
The game will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii.

Ford Motor Company will turn vehicles into rolling WiFi hot spots when it introduces the second generation of its popular SYNC® in-car connectivity system next year.
Inserting an owner’s compatible USB mobile broadband modem – sometimes called an “air card” – into SYNC’s USB port will produce a secure wireless connection that will be broadcast throughout the vehicle, allowing passengers with WiFi-enabled mobile devices to access the Internet anywhere the broadband modem receives connectivity.
