In buggy for Dakar new set of pickup truck does not turn, but to leave the asphalt will be quieter than the original version.

Off-road package for rear-wheel modification of a pickup truck — not the most obvious business idea. And yet Ford believed that such a set there is a buyer who does not want to pay extra for all-wheel drive and do not involve mud baths at the mirror. Package called FX2 Package for rear-wheel drive version of the model Ford Ranger was available in the US yesterday.

In the US Ranger is from $24 300 (1.6 million) and is equipped with turboservice 2.3 (274 HP, 420 N•m), ten step “automatic” and the drive can be rear or full.

Among other things, the specific off-road package added the screen tidy, showing the angles of inclination of the pickup in different directions.

The FX2 package included the rear differential with electronic locking, off-road tyres (a choice of 17 and 18 inches), suspension, retuned for off-road, skid plate in front. In addition, in the front bumper aerodynamic apron removed to increase the approach angle. It turned out a kind of analogue of the FX4 package, but only for more simple variations with drive on one axis that has expanded the total number of Ranger variants. The FX2 package is $595 without taxes (39 365 rubles). Delivery of the first cars will begin in late 2019.

The idea is that the tuning of the dealer is a little different from tuning to a specialized company. But the dealer can dump, and even gives a warranty of five years or 60,000 miles.

Model Ford F-150 enjoys the love of tuning Studio, which offer a variety of options update, up to such extreme as Shelby F-150 (it has several power levels up to 765 “horses”). But the price of Shelby — a hundred thousand dollars, even without taking into account many important features. Here, the Ford dealer Long McArthur of Salina (Kansas) thought, “Why not offer customers something similar but more affordable?”. And announced the release of the original specifications of the pickup — Ford F-150 LM650.

Casacci offered his pickup truck with a very long list of installed options at an attractive (given the equipment) price.

The letters LM obviously mean Long McArthur, but the 650 is a power in the American “horses” (metric is 659 HP). To achieve this level used drive supercharger Roush hoisted on a five-liter “eight”. At Long McArthur say that this is the same powerplant that is in the newly introduced “mad” truck Roush F-150 Nitemare (by the way, the maximum torque there is 827 N•m). Dynamics LM650 not announced, but Nitemare double cab accelerated from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.1 s. In General, Long McArthur selects bread from the Raouche. And it’s not just in the identical impact.

A ten-minute overview of the model from the Manager Tim Barth can view the link.

The basis for the F-150 was taken LM650 version of the Lariat Luxury Package with cab Crew Cab, with heated seats in two rows and ventilation on the ground, leather upholstery, Bang & Olufsen sound system, led headlights, a blind spot monitoring mirrors (including the area around the trailer), automatic hold in the band, all-round visibility, a voice-activated navigation, dual panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, all-wheel drive, rear differential with electronic lock, motorized running boards, styling package Lariat Sport Appearance and increased in volume fuel tank.

Meanwhile, the original F-150 ready to change the generation, prototype pickup 2021 model year is already seen on the tests.

Moreover, Long McArthur added LM650 body kit includes a modified hood and front bumper with additional led backlight and ventilation slots on the wings, privacy glass, contrasting stripes on the back, a suspension lift is 51 mm, hardy Fox shocks, 20-inch wheels with bedroomi and 35-inch tires BF Goodrich T/A K02, package Ford Off-Road Survival (it is a compact blades, saws and the like), protective awning in the cargo Bay, red brake calipers, original floor mats, mentioned above drive the compressor is active and Roush exhaust system Roush. And for all this the company has asked for $89 945 (5.9 million rubles) excluding the current dealer discount of $5500, but including the cost of the original truck. To assemble this truck from the Raouche, perhaps, will be much more expensive.

Director of interior design Porsche Ivo van Hulten says: “Less is more”, describing the salon of Taikang in which minimalist lines combined with new opportunities for control.

On the eve of the debut of the fourth of September, electric car Porsche Taycan opened his salon. This is another step in the hybridization of technologies and the appearance of simplicity after the Porsche 911 of the eighth generation. The designers were inspired by the first Porsche 911 1963: look at the uncluttered front panel extending straight lines from side to side, you should look for an elongated oval clean-up, with rounded edges. She deliberately made wider than the helm that matches the style of the first 911.

Digital instrument cluster — it’s a curved screen with a diagonal of as much as 16.8-inch, with a real glass polarizing and anti-reflective coating. At the edges appeared a touch panel for light control and chassis.

The power button located left of the steering column as the ignition on all the usual Porsche. And the right of the column is a small switch of direction as on the model 918 Spyder. Wheel from the Taikang can be of two types: the basic “classic”, with colored inserts to choose from, and GT, with visible bolt heads and switch driving modes.

And this is the 911 of the first generation (in this case 911 S 2.0 Targa 1967). For the Porsche 911 was the beginning of an era of development of the legendary sports cars. Taycan and also special, still the first production electric car brand.

Tidy can switch between Classic mode (chain typical Porsche round indicators in the center instead of the usual tachometer — power meter), Map mode (the power meter is replaced with a map), Full Map mode (map is stretched to full screen) and Pure mode (the amount of information is reduced to the minimum speed, road signs and navigation arrow showing the way). “Classic design features (s) was reconsidered and postponed in the digital age,” explains producer the basic idea of the salon. The number of mechanical switches is minimized. Most of the functions given to the screens.

Even the deflectors of ventilation does not require touching: they are motorized and are transferred between modes Focused (increased cooling, concentrated stream), Diffused (diffuse flow) and the Virtual Airflow Control (fully automatic thread allocation). Yes voice control, responsive to the phrase “Hey Porsche”. Console — touch display of the climate system (8.4 inch) with tactile feedback and handwriting recognition input for address navigation. With the optional four-zone climate control, Advanced on the second row appears its touch control panel (5.9 inches) with tactile feedback.

Two touch screen, Central (10.9 inches) and passenger (diagonal not specified), connected in dark glass tape, visually merging with the panel.

Promised great opportunities for personalization of finishes. In the car you can order a leather classic or Olea in the tanning process which uses olive leaves. You can select “printology” option even without using a skin material Race-Tex on the basis of microfibers, including polyester recycling. The flooring uses the Econyl fiber, part of the feedstock for which is an old fishing net.

In addition, there are a few packages contrasting accents (matte black, silver, neodymium, or champagne color). And for Taikang stated he is only available interior colors (Black-Beige Lime, Blackberry, Atacama Beige and Brown Meranti) doors and console can be trimmed in a choice of wood, matte carbon fiber, stamped aluminum or cloth.

Porsche has teamed up with Apple Music to create the first “fully integrated musical flow” in Taikang. “The Apple Music subscribers can stream more than 50 million songs without any advertising, thousands of playlists and global live Beats 1 and three years of free Internet data. The world’s first full integration of the Apple Music in any car”.

The main parameters of the electric vehicle is already known, although the final numbers may be refined. The company said that total power of electric motors of Taikang more than 600 forces, reserve on a single charge over 500 km, acceleration from zero to hundreds in less than 3.5 seconds, to 200 km/h is about 10 s, maximum speed — 250 km/h on-Board system there is 800 V, and this means that you can charge from the column with a constant current of the same voltage.

At a given power charging station in 320-350 kW (example — the new European network Ionity) traction battery Taikang is filled to 80% in just 15 minutes. This feature has helped to set a record: on the track of nardò in Italy Taycan drove 3425 km in 24 hours.

Slightly disguised Taycan (around the headlights there are fake stickers) for new York, show the audience on the stage of Formula E. Behind the wheel was Porsche factory driver Neel Jani.

Of course, the authors of the record took a lot of stops to recharge (and changing drivers). And yet this is a very impressive number, considering that the speed on the track was kept around 200 km/h (and the energy consumption in this case considerable). With the introduction of serial stations on 450 kW the above charging time will be reduced to approximately 12-13 minutes. We add that, according to unofficial data, the Taikang is not the only one modification. And it is also known: on the conveyor after a time fall and brother of Taikang — raised station wagons, the forerunner of which was the concept of Mission E Turismo Cross. Technically it would be battery sedan.

Brand Lamborghini has announced a mysterious model

So the light pattern should be extended to various Lamborghini models: for example, with the change of generations, and even when restyling. In a separate limited projects will also be something similar.

Posted online the shows running lamps, optics, a similar concept Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, but the teaser is, of course, not he himself, and the car, developing the specified Millennio style. In relation to the identity of the supercar announced for the September motor show in Frankfurt, there are different versions. The first (more probable): in Germany, will host the public debut of the limited edition hypercar, informally known as LB48H.

This shows Terzo Millennio. It was buggy with four electric motors (one per wheel) and supercapacitors. It is unknown how it all worked in reality. However, before the Lamborghini comes to serial electric vehicles, companies still need to be put on stream hybrids.

The mysterious hypercar last year was presented in a closed presentation for clients and, as they say, quickly sold out (its circulation — 63 pieces, price — $2.5 million). In the depths of the compartment includes a V12 engine and electric motors. To a certain extent for Lamborghini this is a trial project only grope design and technical solutions for the future heir to the modern of the Aventador.

By the way, the launch the successor to the Aventador coupe, the Italians first moved from 2020 to 2022, and according to the latest data, altogether 2024-th.

Second assumption: the teaser had something to do with the impending replacement of the Junior coupe — Lamborghini Huracan. This model is younger than the Aventador, because it was presented in December 2013, while the Aventador in March 2011. But it is possible that a generational shift from the ten-cylinder supercar will happen sooner. In this case, the car in Frankfurt may prove to be a harbinger of the production model. Change the order of the release can be triggered by increasingly stringent standards on emissions. With less powerful Junior coupe their implementation will be easier to maintain, and with the flagship will have a lot of trouble.
