2016 Ford Focus RS – Digital Colorizer and Tallpapers

Just a bit of fun in Photoshop to celebrate the 2016 Focus RS coming to the USA for the first time. AWD, a promise of “well more than 310 horsepower” and even a new torque-vectoring rear end to deliver on-demand power slides — just three of the incredible reasons the Focus RS is set to be Spring 2016’s hottest hatch. A red-hot hatch, perhaps!? The color lineup so far is promised to include four exclusive colors, headlined by the new signature Nitrous Blue.

Best of 2014 Awards – Toyota FT-1 Concept Is Stunning Design Triumph

Update 3 11.27.14 Has there been another concept with the impact of the FT-1? We cannot think of another vehicle this year that has created more buzz.

Updated 9.16.14 Art Imitates Life. Life Imitates Art. Such a truism is very valid in the case of the FT-1 – which Toyota has just teased in its next form as a hard-core (virtual) racing special. The FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo differs from the road-going version of the car in many standard race-ready ways. Starting from the front: there is a much deeper aero package and chin spoiler, easy-off hood panels with racing latches, upgrades brakes and tires and huge fender-top slats to reduce any trapped air from the wheels. These slats drastically reduce under-hood temps as well as being …
