Volvo Estate Concept


If you remember the times when Estate cars were only meant to large families, they were specifically being built for being practical, the looks wasn't on top priority list.

But, a few years ago, everything changed, the Estate cars have wonderful shapes, they attract even the most critic eye and aren't meant for families only.

This just happened with Volvo, which revealed their Estate Concept, which is based on their new SPA platform (Scalable Product Architecture) - and it looks absolutely gorgeous, just look at that full roof glass panel. Volvo also worked on the spacious interior, with quality materials and live colors.

You can spot an roll cage as well, a carbon roof, hood - front fenders are alluminium and weight under one kilo.

No performance figures were revealed, other than the 6 pot Brembo brakes, hidden behind 19" wheels, wrapped around 245/35 especially designed tires.

Jaguar has revealed the Sportbrake version of the XFR-S, that's insane, really, beacuse you get the same 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine delivering 542 bhp and 680 Nm, capable of travelling from 0-100km.h in 4.6s - because kid's car sick is totaly over-rated.

On the styling side, there's new front/rear lip kit, new sideskirts, big wheels, mirror caps, eyelids and a new hatch spoiler.

Hennessey Venom GT beats Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Remember the Hennessey Venom GT that caught everyone's attention with its crazy fast speed? Well, as of now, it's officially the world's fastest car as it hits 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. The Venom GT beats the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which held the previous title with a top speed of 268.86 mph.

 

Although, it is technically the world's fastest car, it can't receive the title since Gusiness Record requires the average speed from two runs. Since NASA only allowed Hennessey one run, the title was out of reach. The manufacturer also had to have a minimum of 30 cars and Hennessey stated that they will only produce 29 Venom GT's.
