Limited-edition Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini channels the Sian FKP 37

Ducati on Wednesday unveiled a motorcycle inspired by the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 supercar. It’s the first collaboration between the two Italian firms, which both fall under the Volkswagen Group umbrella.

The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is based on the existing Diavel 1260 motorcyle but features styling that mimics the limited-edition Siàn FKP 37. The bike rides on forged wheels with the same design as on the supercar, and also wears the same paint. The bodywork gets Verde Gea, while the frame, seat tail, and wheels are finished in Electrum Gold. Ducati did throw in a bit of its trademark red however, for the Brembo brake calipers.

The shape of the exhaust and seat have a hexagonal motif too, which is another design trait typical to the Lamborghini brand. The bike also gets carbon-fiber radiator covers, air intakes, silencer cover, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard

Seven Cool Things to Note About the New 2021 Ford F-150

  1. The new-for-2021 hybrid powertrain pairs with the most powerful engine.

When we first heard Ford was adding a hybrid powertrain to the 2021 F-150, we figured it’d be paired with the 3.3-liter, naturally-aspirated V-6 which serves as the F-150’s base engine. Then we learned we were on the exact opposite side of correct: The hybrid is available with the F-150’s most powerful engine, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Electric assistance raises the total output by 30 horsepower to 430 and by 70 lb-ft of torque to 570; it also boosts fuel economy to 24 mpg for both city and highway. Now that’s an eco-friendly powertrain we can live with.

  1. The 2021 Ford F-150 can power your home or business.

Buy an F-150 hybrid pickup, and you can get an optional 7,200-watt power supply that feeds four 120-volt/20-amp plugs and one 240-volt/30-amp plugs, all

Get The Out-The-Door Price When Buying a Car – Calculate Tax, Title, and Registration

What’s in the Out-the-Door Figure?

At some dealerships, the out-the-door costs are abbreviated as “TTL fees” or tax, title and license. This means that, in addition to the price of the car, you typically have to pay the following costs:

  • State and local sales tax
  • Department of Motor Vehicles title and registration fees
  • A documentation fee
  • Interest charges on a car loan

The documentation fee is set by law in some states, and in others, it’s not. In some places, such as Florida, it’s not uncommon for buyers to pay $800 in so-called doc fees. In such a scenario, the dealership could quote an attractive price for the car, knowing it would make a profit once it applied the $800 doc fee. The article called “What New Car Fees Should You Pay?” shows what you can expect to spend in doc fees depending on your state.

Next Ram 1500 Built To Serve trucks take a maritime land force-inspired tack

Ram is launching another round of its Built To Service Edition military-inspired pickup trucks. Arriving at dealerships in the first quarter of 2021, the fourth batch of these limited-edition Ram 1500 pickups adds two new colors—Tank and Flame Red.

Built To Serve Editions are meant to represent the five United States armed forces. In a press release, Ram said the new exterior colors have a “maritime land force” theme, but didn’t elaborate beyond that.

Production of the latest Built To Serve Edition trucks is limited to 2,000 units—evenly split between the Tank and Flame Red exterior colors. The trucks also get black interiors with Medium Graystone accent stitching, as well as 20-inch aluminum wheels, body-color fender flares, U.S. flag badges, and a “Built To Serve” decal on each of the rear quarter panels.

Two Impressive Women Finish Second in the Fifth Annual Rebelle Rally in a 2020 Kia Telluride SX

Stepping up to an extreme challenge,  ESPN senior sports writer Alyssa Roenigk (driver) and Los Angeles-based actress Sabrina Howells (navigator) tested the limits of a 2020 Kia Telluride SX during the fifth annual Rebelle Rally in October. Like all competitors, they tackled eight days of grueling off-road competition in the Nevada and California deserts; from Lake Tahoe to the U.S.-Mexico border,

Team Telluriders pushed the boundaries of a wholesome SUV on a 1,500-mile journey to a spectacular second-place finish in the X-Cross vehicle class. And, to the amazement of other competitors, Team Telluriders scored the most points on the competition’s final day. Their machine, the all-wheel-drive 2020 Kia Telluride SX underwent minimal modifications that included all-terrain tires and a skid plate to make it suited for the competition.

Before participating in the Rebelle Rally as Team Telluriders, did you both know each other?

BREAKING: This Is Our Very Fast First Ride in the 2021 Porsche 911 GT3

The front axle is where the biggest changes have been made, with the MacPherson struts of the standard 911 having been removed in favor of a set of expensive, lightweight, forged aluminium wishbones lifted from the shelves marked “Cup and RSR parts.” That’s meant significant work to the steering, including completely new geometry and, of course, the wider track of the 992. Not an easy task, but one that Preuninger’s happy with, the double wishbones proving quicker to react and stiffer without as much friction as the previous setup. On roads he’s familiar with around Porsche’s Weissach base, the 992 GT3 certainly feels agile, the grown-up character of the 992 Carrera transplanted here with greater immediacy and accuracy. It has the effect of seemingly shrinking the 992’s proportions, which is no bad thing given the GT3’s sharper focus.

Bigger, yes, but less weight

Weight is always a consideration with the
