Revology’s 1968 Ford Mustang Replica Gets a Ferrari Leather Interior

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 10/09/2018 - 22:00

If you want to feel like Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt, but want a car with a modern powertrain and creature comforts, you could go with the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt. Or, if you want modern tech but with the vintage look of the 1968 Mustang, you could give Revology a call. The Florida-based builder of licensed Mustang replicas has detailed its latest build: a ‘68 Ford Mustang fastback painted in Highland Green metallic with a gorgeous brown interior upholstered in the same leather used by Ferrari.

Built for a customer in Japan, the car is Revology’s first ’68 Mustang and its first export model to Japan. Like all of Revology’s replicas, the ’68 fastback is underpinned by a modern chassis complete with a double-A-arm front suspension, three-link rear suspension with torque arm and panhard rod, and vented disc brakes with four-piston calipers all around. This particular build represents the company’s first use of Ford’s 6R80 six-speed automatic transmission, which required a redesigned transmission tunnel and center console. That transmission comes mated to a 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 that produces 435 hp. Should you choose the six-speed manual, however, you’d get a Gen 3 Coyote V-8 rated at 460 hp.

But the highlight of this reimagined Bullitt has to be the handcrafted leather interior. Revology says it sourced the Cuoio brown leather from the same Italian tannery that supplies Ferrari. The classy material covers just about every part of the car’s interior, including the center console, dashboard, door panels, headliner, seats, steering wheel, and trunk area.

This particular 1968 Mustang clone has of course already been sold, but Revology will happily build another one for you if you have the cash. Prices start at $180,680 for the manual, and $184,520 for the automatic.

Jeep Renegade Plug-in Hybrid Coming in 2020

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 10/09/2018 - 21:15

Around the same time that Jeep brings out a plug-in hybrid Wrangler, it will also offer an electrified Renegade. The Jeep Renegade PHEV will enter production at Fiat Chrysler’s Melfi plant in Italy.

FCA will build the first pre-production copies next year before the final version hits the market in early 2020. The Melfi plant, which currently builds the Renegade and Fiat 500X, will undergo modernization efforts to keep pace with the new plug-in.

We anticipate the plug-in Renegade will arrive here in the U.S. at some point. When FCA announced its five-year product plan a few months ago, we learned that Jeep vehicles built around a front-wheel-drive architecture, such as the Renegade and Cherokee, will offer a rear-mounted electric motor driving the rear wheels. Jeep aims to have eight PHEV models on sale in the U.S. by 2022. The plug-in Wrangler is expected to arrive in 2020.

The new Jeeps will join FCA’s growing-but-small lineup of electrified vehicles. Introduced for the 2017 model year, the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in began the rollout, followed by the mild hybrid Ram 1500 that arrived for the 2019 model year. By 2022, FCA will offer 30 different models with electrified powertrains. By that time, 12 electric propulsion systems will be available across different global architectures.

Roadkill’s 1970 Dodge Challenger Gets Budget Handling Upgrades

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 10/09/2018 - 20:00

On this episode of “Roadkill Garage” presented by Dodge, we’re back with the 1970 Dodge Challenger known as Vanishing Paint.

This car dates back to Episode 4, when we thrashed it together, and then we revisited it in Episode 34 as we upgraded the whole drivetrain.

This time, we continue the theme of “make it pretty good but not excellent” with a homegrown package of average-guy suspension add-ons for cornering performance.

And then we test it in the six-clod, our new secret test method!

Set the work aside, and stream an all-new episode of “Roadkill Garage” on Motor Trend!

Spied! Next-Gen BMW M3 Hits the Nurburgring

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 10/09/2018 - 18:30

BMW unveiled the next-generation 3 Series earlier this month. The automaker is keeping its full M variant under wraps, but our spy photographers managed to capture this prototype lapping the Nurburgring.

When we last spotted the new M3, it wasn’t wearing its production headlights. That has since changed, because the new units look a lot closer to BMW’s traditional design. The taillights now resemble those on the other new 3 Series models. The bold quad exhaust system, as well as blue brake calipers, signify the model’s high performance status in the 3 Series lineup. Unfortunately, there’s too much camouflage to see any side vents the M3 might be hiding. But you can bet the performance variant will have something on the front fenders to visually differentiate it from the more pedestrian 3 Series.

It’s likely the new M3 will receive an improved version of the automaker’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six. Power could reach as high as 470-500 hp, an increase from the current model that tops out at 453 hp on the CS version. While BMW has dropped the manual transmission from the new 3 Series, it’s likely we’ll see one on the M3, in addition to an available eight-speed automatic. Carbon-fiber components will help reduce weight over the current model. The next-gen BMW M3 could debut at the Frankfurt auto show in September 2019.

By the end of 2020, BMW plans to launch 26 high-performance cars. Eleven of these will be full M cars, and 15 will be milder M Performance variants.

The 2019 Toyota Camry wants you to think that its wallflower past is well behind it. We’re mostly convinced.
