Ohio dealership selling 750-hp supercharged 2020 Ford Mustang GTs for $45,000

An Ohio Ford dealer is selling 750-horsepower 2020 Ford Mustang GT models for $44,994, according to Car and Driver. That’s just 10 hp less than the 2020 Shelby GT500, which starts at $71,495. So if you can live without the Shelby’s track-focused suspension, brakes, and aero, this could be the horsepower bargain you want.

Beechmont Ford in Cincinnati, Ohio, will sell you a new Mustang GT with a Roush Phase 2 supercharger. The kit costs $7,999 directly from Roush, but the installation cost of the TVS 2650 blower is baked into the price of Beechmont Ford’s Mustang GT.

In addition to the aforementioned 750 hp, the supercharger increases torque output from the 5.0-liter V-8 to 670 pound-feet. That’s more than the 625 lb-ft produced by the GT500’s 5.2-liter supercharged V-8.

Five of the Best European Vintage SUVs Sold in the U.S.

These days, European SUVs are omnipresent, but are they interesting? Not often, but that wasn’t always the case. Long before the days of ubiquitous BMW X5s, volume-selling Mercedes-Benz GLEs, and parking lot warrior Audi Q5s, European manufacturers brought several utility vehicles of interest to the U.S. market, perhaps before we were truly ready for them. Here are five of Europe’s most interesting vintage SUVs to grace our shores, even if they didn’t necessarily sell in big numbers at the time.

Rayton-Fissiore Magnum “La Forza”

What do you get when you cross all-terrain capability with Italian engineering, and styling by the late American designer abroad, Tom Tjaarda? You get the Rayton-Fissore Magnum, known on U.S. shores as the Laforza.

This now-vintage SUV was intended as something of an Italian Range Rover competitor, the idea was to build a luxurious SUV that didn’t skimp

Jeep Wrangler with 392 6.4-liter V-8 teased ahead of Ford Bronco reveal

Jeep may crash the 2021 Ford Bronco’s party early. On Saturday, the off-road brand teased a Jeep Wrangler with a 392 cubic-inch V-8 on Facebook.

The single shadowy teaser image shows a 392 badge on the hood of a Wrangler. A raised hood scoop appears to be a functional and feed cold air to cool the big V-8. The fender flares are painted body color as is the roof, but the side view mirrors are black.

The 392 cubic-inch V-8 will likely be the same 6.4-liter V-8 found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT with 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It’s unclear what four-wheel drive system the Wrangler 392 will use or whether it will be a full-time or part-time setup.

It’s clear that the 6.4-liter V-8 and Hellcat’s 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 fit under the hood of the Wrangler, but the Hellcat engine likely isn’t in the

Seven Sweet Teardrop Camper Trailers For Adventurous Types

Teardrop campers first became popular in the 1930s when do-it-yourself magazines like Mechanix Illustrated published guides for readers to build their own. These streamlined teardrop trailers remained a top choice for enjoying the outdoors in comfort until their popularity waned in the 1960s. But teardrop campers saw a resurgence in the 1990s.

Now, with retro enthusiasm and a desire for escapism at a fever pitch, there are plenty of teardrop camper options available on the worldwide market. In addition to their timeless shape, these trailers tend to be lightweight, and most modern cars can tow them given the right equipment. Here are seven of our favorite teardrop campers right now.

Airstream Basecamp, $37,900 and Up

2020 Polaris Slingshot R, Dodge Challenger Super Stock, 2021 Ford Bronco: The Week In Reverse

We drove the 2020 Polaris Slingshot R; Dodge talked Challenger Super Stock and Demon; and the 2021 Ford Bronco family took shape. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

We tooled around in the 2020 Polaris Slingshot R and basked in the attention of fans and onlookers. Our resident 12-year-old fangirl said “it’s like a roller coaster.” The three-wheeler is a fun toy unlike anything on the road, but it’s a tough sell for our imaginary garage.

The new 2021 Nissan Frontier was spotted roaming public roads in production form. The truck will get the 3.8-liter V-8 and 9-speed automatic transmission that debuted in the 2020 model, plus mini-Titan looks and its first significant update since 2005. Expect a reveal in the coming months.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told us the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is not another Demon. The Super Stock lacks the

The Five Best Classic Cars to Convert to Electric Vehicles

Converting a classic car to full battery-electric drive is either the best idea or the worst. There’s an argument to be made that without the original powertrain, a classic is no longer the car it was, but merely one that looks like it. On the other hand, installing an electric drivetrain could help keep some classics on the road and out of the museum, or worse, the scrapyard.

A good off-the-shelf electric drive system will almost always be a significant pep upgrade for an old daily driver, even if the original engine is a high-output V-8, thanks the instant-on torque. An electric classic won’t smoke or leak oil, and if it’s charged up, it should start up every time, at least during warmer cruising weather—and what a reduction in pollutants and hydrocarbons, especially if the removed engine was built to run on premium leaded gas.

But an electric conversion is,
