Shelby Cobra Daytona and Ford Mustang Apollo Make it in the Best News for This Week
The best that happened this week involved a lot of Ford Mustangs and more importantly the revived Shelby Cobra Daytona. We also saw some great looking cars and special one-off tunings. A fast recapitulation will give you a glimpse of the most exclusive vehicles that were revealed for this five day long period.
Starting with Monday, we saw the birth of the new Lexus EX line-up and the most exclusive Lexus ES 300h hybrid. We always put an emphasis on the ecological side because it is important for us to contribute in these terms.
There you go: 2016 Lexus ES 300h that has joined a range of six Lexus hybrid models. For the 2016, Lexus ES 300h gets one-piece spindle grille framed by satin chrome. The car also receives standard LEDs, 17-inch alloys and L-shaped taillights. There are four exterior colors added to the palette, including Autumn Shimmer, Nightfall Mica, Caviar and Eminent White Pearl. Lexus Hybrid Drive system is what powers the car. It combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine with an electric motor and as a result it produces a combined power of 200 horses.
Tuesday was characterized with impressive debuts, but the most important one is this of Toyota 86 GT Yellow Limited. The car will be produced for the Japanese market only. The exterior of the Toyota 86 GT Yellow Limited has been made so exuberant due to the application of the special Sunrise Yellow exterior color. It has been contrasted with black mirrors and black 17-inch alloys. The interior was also decided in those two contrasting colors. However, the black here is the main one, used for the Alcantara upholstery, while the Ashirai yellow was utilized for the stitching. The special edition vehicle also receives two versatile packs, which make it even more distinguishable.
Did you saw McLaren's 675LT dynamic debut on Wednesday? If you didn't now it is time to do it, because it was spectacular! The exhilarating performance of the car is due to the powerful 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine producing 675PS. It is also responsible for the mighty sound you hear in the video. Well, here also helps the titanium crossover exhaust.
Thursday was so abundant of Ford Mustangs, that we actually wonder which one to feature here. The most important however, is probably the Ford Apollo Edition Mustang, which will be sold via auction at the Gathering of Eagles charity event on July 23. The proceeds will be invested in EAA youth education programs, that since 1992 provided free flights for almost 2 million young people. This means, that about 2 million people were living their own dreams of flying. How cool is that? And it is a nice way for Ford to contribute for this cause.
At last, yesterday was the day we saw the rebirth of Shelby Cobra Daytona Anniversary Edition. The limited edition series is a continuation of Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupes. They will be produced in only 50 examples. To build them the experts will use either aluminum or fiberglass. The cars will have its premiere in August at Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival. Then they will be on display at Rolex Motorsports Reunion inside Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. An aluminum variant will be available for the sights of the visitors at Goodwood Revival in the United Kingdom as well.
