Today has brought us an interesting selection of news from Nevada fighting against fast lane hoggers to new Jeep trucks, and even the world’s worst kept secret: the mid-engined Corvette. Read on and discover the news highlights from today.
Is the Ferrari F40 Worth $1.3Million?
To commemorate the 40th birthday of Ferrari, they released a 2.9-litre, twin turbocharged V8 supercar. Today, the F40 is arguably one of the most iconic supercars in the world and incredibly hard to find. This is why YouTube comes in ever so handy. Doug DeMuro, a talented motoring journalist and YouTuber, takes to his channel with an F40 to discover exactly why the Italian car is worth so much.
The Jeep Wrangler Truck Is Coming!
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a truck version of the Wrangler. Nearly three decades in fact! So now, since the Wrangler has been so incredibly popular and revenue harnessing for the Fiat Chrysler group, they’re releasing a truck ready to purchase in the next year or two. Alongside it will come a new Wrangler with the original SUV design, too. Rumours say it could be a hybrid.
Dealership Markups Are Getting Ridiculous!
We all know how bad dealerships can be when it comes to mark ups, but this is pushing it! A dealership in New Jersey has a Honda Civic Type R for sale at a price of $47,463! It’s a good car don’t get me wrong, but is it that good? That’s a mark up of $12,708. Would you say that’s worth it? I’m not so sure…
The Mid-Engined Corvette Is Here!
The rumour of a mid-engined Corvette has been floating around for years now. But news just in – it may have just arrived! It’s fairly obvious looking at the photo above that this Corvette is mid-engined. Why? Look at how long the rear of the car is compared to the front. No way is there room to stick a massive V8 in front of the driver, meaning there’s only one other place they can put it – behind. This new Corvette will probably take the competition straight to the NSX, 488, or better yet, the Holy Trinity. The mind boggles at what could be coming!
Nevada Puts An End To Fast Lane Hoggers!
One of the most annoying people you come across when driving are fast lane hoggers. Not even cyclists who cycle in the middle of the road are this annoying. Well, Nevada are pulling out a law to stop this from happening. From the 1st of July it is illegal to drive below the speed limit in the fast lane. “It’s law here that if you’re gonna be in that lane, you need to be going at least the speed limit,” says trooper Jason Buratczuk to KTNV 13. “The law is reportedly not intended to encourage speeding, but to keep traffic flowing smoothly and prevent road rage incidents, many of which are caused by these so-called ‘left lane hogs’ that clog up the road.” Maybe other areas will catch on?
So there we have it. Let me know what you think of today’s news. Especially the mid-engined Corvette. Are they losing the heritage of the Corvette, or are they doing the right thing by improving it? Let me know in the comments below.
