The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 9:04 AM - by AutoGuide.com
Quote:
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.

Ferrari 458 Speciale A reveald in Paris
Oct 02, 2014 - 7:58 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Ferrari brought the open top version of its most powerful naturally aspirated V8 road car ever to the Paris Motor Show this year.

Just like its closed cabin cousin, the 458 Speciale A uses Ferrari’s blood curdling naturally aspirated V8 capable of 398 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 RPM and 605 hp at a sky scraping 9,000 RPM.

The same advanced SCC traction control system that debuted on the Speciale is, of course, in place here and able to better predict how the car will perform in corners than past Ferrari traction control systems. Really, the only differences here are that the aluminum roof folds away, which also means there isn’t a glass window over the engine compartment anymore.

The extra equipment adds roughly 100 lbs to the curb weight, but Ferrari says that shouldn’t affect its 0-60 MPH sprint, which still happens in a scant three seconds. In fact, Ferrari says this is its most aerodynamically advanced convertible ever.

2014 Paris Motor Show Coverage

Inside you’ll find the same typical F1-inspired steering wheel, paddle shifters and center-mounted tachometer as you would expect on other products from the high-performance brand. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires specially designed for the car and meant for track day longevity wrap the wheels.

As is the case with all Ferraris, production is limited. There will only be 499 of these built, but if you’re on Maranello’s short list you probably knew that months ago. Take a minute to reflect on something. Ferrari says all of its future V8s will use turbochargers and that means this could be one of, if not the last naturally aspirated car it debuts at an auto show.

2014 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Oct 01, 2014 - 12:33 PM - by AutoGuide.com



Quote:

Kicking off the auto show season, the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the public next week, but AutoGuide's team of reporters will get you inside early with three days of coverage from the City of Lights.



And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.



Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.



A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.



And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.



Coverage runs October 1st to 3rd and, as always, includes the best auto show video coverage out there.

Ferrari 458 Speciale A Revealed
Sep 25, 2014 - 6:53 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Ferrari just confirmed that it plans to unveil the open-air version of its 458 Speciale next week at the Paris Motor Show.

It’s called the Ferrari 458 Speciale A and the company plans to build 499 copies before cutting things off. Ferrari says this is its most powerful convertible ever. And about the convertible top: it’s an aluminum retractable hard top that can tuck away or deploy in only 14 seconds and adds roughly 100 lbs to the car.

Just like the coupe version first seen last year in Frankfurt, this car uses a massaged version of the naturally aspirated V8 in the normal 458 that makes 605 hp at 9,000 RPM in this state of tune and 398 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 RPM. The company’s SSC traction control system is at work to deliver the same white-knuckle performance as the Speciale offers by using a different algorithm than past traction control systems to better predict the car’s trajectory and adjust torque to the wheels as needed. Ostensibly, this car can also pull the same 1.33 g at the company’s Fiorano test track as its closed cabin sibling did.

The Speciale A sprints to 62 MPH in three seconds, meaning the added weight hasn’t encumbered acceleration compared to the coupe. That’s due in large part to the SSC system, but Ferrari also claims this this is its most aerodynamically advanced spider ever. Other highlights that help the car be such a track beast – carried over from the coupe – include Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 rubber designed specifically for the car designed for longevity at lapping days and superior grip in wet conditions.
