2016 MANSORY Lamborghini Huracan TOROFEO 7

1250HP, 211MPH 2016 MANSORY Lamborghini Huracan TOROFEO Is Full CF Reskin + Screaming V10TT

  Lambo power games are back – bigtime! After years of enormous power upgrades for the Gallardo, the Mansory team had a good playbook when taking on the new engine. The vast majority of the critical moving components have been strengthened, optimized and honed to ridiclous strength levels. All this is very, very needed. Because once this beast starts howling, two big additions make themselves known. Doubletime! Bespoke twin turbochargers with water to water intercooling crank the factory power output off the scale. Stock 610PS becomes 1250HP. Gulp. Torque is limited in the all-wheel-drive Huracan to 1000-nm in low gears, …

2016 Dodge Charger PURSUIT Debuts new 12-inch Touchscreen with PnP Police Computer Systems

Until now, the preferred method of departments to put computers into squad cars has been a floor-mounted Panasonic Toughbook. Yes, the laptop was theoretically portable, but not as mounted on its giant metal arm. Bolted down under the seat, this arm let officers move the laptop over the center console, angled toward them a bit. But still extremely awkward, and using an touchpad / nub thing …

DIY How-To: 20-Minute, $20 Nose Makeover Via Carbon-Fiber Wrap

Here is a fun and very easy DIY project that requires just a few tools, no complex disassembly, and minimal time or money to achieve. What is it? A DIY de-chrome of an OEM nose brightwork in favor of a carbon-fiber pattern wrap. “Carbon Fiber” and “Wrap” are both ambitious descriptions. It is neither real CF nor a full wrap. Just a bit of adhesive-backed tape in a woven pattern. We picked up ours from Autozone for about $15, but much better deals are available at Amazon etc. Almost all car parts stores carry this trim tape in their nasty …
