KhodroCar - Numbers are all around us – whether we're breaking down the performance of a Ferrari 488, or comparing the price of a Model S to a Mercedes. Every week we pick out a few numbers that are so significant we have to give them a second look. Today we’re looking at key figures from Hennessey, Mazda, Jeep, and BMW.
How much horsepower goes to each wheel of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6. That’s right, the beast has six wheels and produces 602 horsepower. Production is starting now, with each 6x6 costing a cool $349,000 – and only 50 are planned to be produced.
The price difference between a base and a fully loaded example of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. That’s because the new JL-generation off-roader can cost as much as $57,310 if you max out all the options on its online configurator.
we already know that the Ford Focus will be manufactured at Ford’s Changan facility in China, a move that reportedly will save the company nearly $1 billion in costs compared to its original plan. U.S. versions of the Focus, meanwhile, will be imported from China and assembled Ford’s Wayne, Michigan plant.
A rather worrying report coming from Automobile Magazine indicates the R8’s days are numbered as the naturally aspirated machine might not live to see a third generation. It seems Audi has given it much thought and has arrived at the conclusion that because the supercar hasn’t exactly been a huge hit in terms of sales, it wouldn’t be a wise decision to keep it alive beyond the end of the decade. Yes, the R8 will reportedly be phased out in 2020 when the platform-sharing Lamborghini Huracan will morph into a next generation.
