blogentry-114362-0-59112200-1541578095_thumb.jpgClassic Recreations recently secured a license from Ford to bring back some of the automaker's most cherished Mustangs. We're talking the 1960s-era Boss 302 and 429, as well as the Mach 1.

 

blogentry-114362-0-03199600-1541578240_thumb.jpgThe Yukon, Oklahoma-based company has since unveiled the first of the modern recreations, stunning audiences at last week's 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas where the car debuted.

 

The presented car was a turnkey 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a model CR says it has exclusive rights to build. For the debut, CR went with a beastly black design complemented with a modern wheel pattern and even LED accent lighting.

 

blogentry-114362-0-24155200-1541578243_thumb.jpgCR can either use an original Mustang body from the 1969 or 1970 model years, or a licensed modern example supplied by firms like Dynacorn. The cars are built to the customer's specification and normally come with modern chassis and powertrain technologies, ensuring they run and more importantly stop like modern machines.

 

blogentry-114362-0-17421000-1541578247_thumb.jpgIn the case of its SEMA show car, CR dropped in a 429 V-8 with a stroker kit boosting displacement to 514 cubic inches, or 8.4 liters. The massive engine generates an estimated 815 horsepower and features a Centerforce DYAD performance clutch and flywheel, along with an updated valvetrain and modern fuel injection and engine management systems.

 

blogentry-114362-0-96221300-1541578250_thumb.jpgThe average CR build takes approximately four months (nearly 2,500 man hours) to complete, with all of the work, from metal fabrication to body work, paint and assembly, taking place in-house. Naturally, the price of a CR build isn't cheap. For a Boss 429 you're looking at $209,000 to start.

 

blogentry-114362-0-67231700-1541578254_thumb.jpg“The Boss 429 is one of the coolest and rarest Mustangs ever produced, but they have gotten so valuable that most owners won’t drive them,” said CR owner Jason Engel. “This offers people the chance to own an incredibly rare car that they can actually drive, and with modern chassis and engine tech these cars will actually be faster and easier to drive than the original.”

 

blogentry-114362-0-30450000-1541578258_thumb.jpgCR has made a name for itself over the years with its Shelby Mustang recreations. There was even a version of the ficticious Eleanor from 2000's “Gone In 60 Seconds.” Recently, the company also started offering recreated versions of the original Chevrolet Camaro.

    Watch this Alfa Romeo flip along Havelock road after hitting a tree!

    A video from @SG Road Vigilante has been circulating showing an Alfa Romeo hitting the road kerb before lurching to the right and flipping over!   The incident happened along the long stretch of road before the State Courts and the Ministry of Manpower. The car suffered extensive damage throughout this incident. Credits: Mothership It is definitely a well-loved car, with one sgCarMart consumer reviewer, Michaelkoh, describing the car as something, "Under the radar gem. (With) Striking design and styling without the excessive price tag. Definitely a top consideration for those looking for cars in the $100-120k range." After searching on our sgCarMart used car section, we found that there isn't any current pre-owned Giuletta in the market. If you guys are looking out for an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for your next ride, please keep a lookout for one with an uneven sloping roof and perhaps tyres that are painted with "POTENZA" in white.

    No inspiration for your holiday plans? Check out this MyCarForum member's drive through the Pacific Coast Highway in a C-HR!

    MyCarForum member 'therock' shared with us this week his latest adventure all the way from the U.S.A's Pacific West Coast! With plenty of B-roads to savour, amazing sights to take in and jolly good food to boot, what more could you ask from a driving holiday? Here's what I think is the best part of the thread: The drive was done in the popular Toyota C-HR, what a madman! In his own words, therock "wanted to try a car which (he) might consider buying and (he) wanted an SUV so it came down to the RAV4 or the C-HR depending what was available." Thankfully, the U.S-spec C-HR comes as a 2.0-litre which we imagine must be way better for chewing through those long distances than the local 1.2-litre spec car. Talking about chewing... the thread has plenty of glorious food porn as well. Cause you know, AMERICA! Looks like therock is still uploading more pictures of his epic drive, so do go down and check out the rest of the thread here! All pictures are shared here courtesy of MyCarForum member therock.   ----------------------------------------------- Check out the rest of the thread by therock here! And if the post has inspired you to embark on your own drive don't forget to leave a like or a comment! -----------------------------------------------

    This might be a good way to get a new car for free?

    Spotted on the facebook page 'private hire sg cars/partners - grab, gojek, ryde, tada etc', someone posted a photo of a fender bender between a BMW and a Toyota and we were shocked by how much you can claim if you were involved in such a accident. This should not cost too much to repair right? Oh wait till you see the final amount submitted by the surveyor. Yup, you saw it right. The cost of repairs on the BMW E60 5 Series would amount to a staggering $88,000.  To put that into perspective, you can buy yourself a similar BMW coupled with a new 10-year COE and lots of change left for petrol and parking. Others on the post agreed too that this is one really over inflated amount. That said, there were some who thought that the is not the actual amount that was asked for...  Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who's point of view, that is the discharge voucher which you could say is going to be the actual amount paid out. Of course quite a few felt that this is wrong... Let us know what you readers think of this in the comments below! UPDATE: There are some rumors that the discharge form was meant for a Lamborghini Gallardo and not the two cars as pictured above. ----------------------------------------------- Want to know if there are any more BMW 5 Series you could buy with $88,000, check out our used car pages! -----------------------------------------------

    Keep calm brother. This Audi A4 Driver is going to kena one time big fine or worse, jail

    A recent video uploaded on SG Road Vigilante of an Audi A4 using red and blue flashing lights to impersonate law enforcement vehicles has gone viral. The “less than 24-hour old” video has since gone viral and has about 250 shares (as of present). Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it Video from SG Road Vigilante YouTube Colours of the law At about 19 seconds into the video, we see an Audi A4 light up with red and blue flashing lights to overtake or get past the car that was recording the video. A string of vulgarities can be heard coming from the driver. This is forgivable because ANYBODY would be pissed off if they had to scoot over and give way to a “police vehicle” only to find out that it was all a big fat lie. Screenshot from SG Road Vigilante YouTube The video then shifts to the POV of the dash cam. The footage doesn’t show the red and blue flashing lights tho, but it does show where the incident took place – Terminal 4, Changi Airport. A weak chase ensues The driver then decides to chase the Audi down (which was uncalled for but ego probably kicked in). Screenshot from SG Road Vigilante YouTube However, they enter a single merging lane, and there’s a Hyundai Avante between them. For some reason, the Audi slows down at this single lane for a couple of seconds and the vulgarity spewing driver wastes no time in honking and high beaming to signal his displeasure. It’s a good thing that there was the Hyundai between them though or things might have escalated even further. The Audi seems like it wanted to stop but decided not to in the end and drove off. Angry driver tails for a while and the video cuts off. Two wrongs, no right We did some research and under no circumstance should you be using red and blue flashing lights unless you are from law enforcement. Image by Singtech.com.sg However, vulgarity spewing driver was obviously looking for a fight of sorts with all that aggression. Just keep calm lah! Why so angry? The video is evidence enough for him to kena by the real police what? Here’s what Singaporeans think Image from SG Road Vigilante Facebook This guy sounds like he’s got it all figured out.
