For the first time ever, a right-hand-drive Ford Mustang will roll off a Ford assembly line when global production begins. The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s line-up of global vehicles will allow the iconic ‘pony car’ to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world.
Mustang engineers recently finished construction of the very first right-hand-drive sixth-generation Mustang. The prototype Mustang will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market in the coming months.

Automobili Lamborghini unveiled its next generation motorsports machine: the new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. The car will debut in all three (Europe, Asia and North America) of the brand’s one-make 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
The Huracán Super Trofeo marks a new benchmark for the race series. ‘‘The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept,’’ said Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member and Director of Research and Development for Automobili Lamborghini. ‘‘We believe the car will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive.’’
The covers have been pulled off the dramatic and purposeful McLaren P1 GTR design concept during a private event at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event in California. The aggressive racing concept is a preview to the final model which, with a little under a year until production commences, has now entered the next phase as the development team works to hone and further optimise the ultimate track-focused racer.
The McLaren P1 GTR will be the most track-tailored and most powerful model produced by McLaren Special Operations to date, with a clear target even more focused than its road-going sibling: to be the best driver’s car in the world on track.
With 2 European races left before it is the island-nation’s turn to host the prestigious F1 circus, it isn’t too early for SIA to kick off F1-related activities. To hype up the build up to the race, a convoy of supercars and their owners, courtesy of the Scuderia FSG Club, have toured the island, before the cars are exhibited at the F1 Pit Lane. Joining the exotics are well-preserved classic rides, along with a whole host of events, which range from karting to a stunt driving performances.
We spy a a few Murcielago SVs, a 458 with an Oakley kit, a 458 Speciale, a 650S, along with the more common supercars and the odd lineup. It must have been quite a sight and sound for those present for the event!
Jaguar Land Rover debuted three vehicles at an exclusive event held at the Beach and Tennis Club in Pebble Beach, Calif., including the new 550hp Range Rover Sport SVR, the U.S. production version of the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and the prototype of the new Jaguar Lightweight E-Type.

Toyota’s FT-1 sports coupe concept raised a storm of approval when it first appeared “in the metal” at this year’s Detroit motor show and then went on to prove its performance in the virtual speed world of the Gran Turismo 6 PlayStation computer game. Now the car’s designers at Toyota’s CALTY studio in California have gone even further to produce a pure-bred racing version to add to the thrill of the more hard-core Vision Gran Turismo.
Toyota’s original intention was for the FT-1 to appeal to die-hard car enthusiasts, so it has been a natural progression for it to develop the concept to deliver an authentic racetrack experience for die-hard Gran Turismo fans.
