It’s real! Jeep Wrangler V8 concept unveiled

Well this ought to get the front wheels off the ground. A Jeep Wrangler V8 concept has been unveiled within hours of the covers coming off the new Ford Bronco in the US – and the company says fans “may soon get their wish”. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept is powered by a 6.4-litre V8 (392 in cubic inches) with a claimed output of 335kW/610Nm (450hp/450lb-ft in the old money) – enough to do the 0 to 60mph dash (0 to 97kmh) in “less than 5 seconds”.

Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R V-Spec sets price record

A new record has been set for the price paid for a Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R V-Spec at auction. Despite having 65,000km on the odometer and being 20 years old – built between 1999 and 2000 – the hammer fell last month at 15,105,000 Japanese Yen ($AUD206,000). That's half the price of the most expensive Nissan GT-R of all time, however it is believed to be the most paid for this particular model. One of the main reasons for the record price was its paint colour – Midnight Purple III.
