[VIDEO] Frankfurt: Mansory Siracusa based on Ferarri 458 Italia revealed


Luxury tuner Mansory was also present at the Frankfurt Motor Show but when talking about its latest creation, the Siracusa, based on the Ferrari 458 Italia, we have only one word to say: blasphemy!
Even if it may look better in many eyes than the original supercar or it may be more powerful, thanks to its ECU remap, sport air filter and sport exhaust, the Mansory Siracusa is the best example of “how not to…”.
The luxury tuner is bragging with the supercar’s performance, saying that thanks to the modifications mentioned above it’s now delivering a total output of 582 BHP and 560 Nm of torque (413 lb-ft), being able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and stopping at its 330 km/h top speed.
Mansory also played with the suspension, fitting new sport shock absorbers and lowering springs by 20 mm, while the supercar is standing on 20 and 21 inch rims, wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires, with 245/35R20 for the front and 305/30R21 for the rear.
The tuner is using even more carbon fiber than Ferrari and says that the interior now has top materials including leather and, of course, carbon fiber, along with a new redesigned center console, decorative stitching, aluminum pedals and a sport steering wheel with a full-sized airbag.
Mansory didn’t announce a price for its Siracusa and we are not sad about that because maybe the tuner has no intention of selling it, which is a good thing.

First Drive: 2008 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Volkswagen’s 50-state-compliant Jetta TDI will be among the cleanest diesels in the U.S. Previews Amid the looming hordes of European luxury automakers planning a North American compression-ignition invasion in the next couple years, humble Volkswagen has announced its plans to return the Jetta TDI to the diesel dogpile in the spring of 2008.

2007 Tokyo Auto Salon - Part 5

We're psyched now that we can finally talk about our favorite vehicles of the 2007 Tokyo Auto Salon: the style wagons. These pimped-out minivans were our favorite part of the 2005 Tokyo Auto Salon, and after the disappointingly small number of VIP vans at the '06 show, we thought that the trend was dead. It turns out that the pimp-wagon scene was just resting, as VIP vans seemed to dominate the 2007 show. So what makes a minivan a "style wagon"? Basically, a style wagon is a VIP-styled minivan. As is the case with VIP sedans, most style wagons have a simple white or black paint scheme (though silver is also acceptable), tasteful aero kits, large chrome wheels and no fender gap. Within the style wagon scene, the main vans of choice seem to be the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and the Toyota Estima. Though Americans would look at any of these rides as "just a minivan", the massive size of these vans allows Japanese tuners to let their minds run wild. Though t
