Last month, DreamWorks Studios confirmed that it will be producing a feature film based on EA Games Need for Speed franchise. Of course, that had us enthusiasts all very excited. At the time DreamWorks confirmed that the movie will be released some time in 2014, but didn’t confirm the exact date.
The studio is now confirming that the EA video game based movie will hit theaters on Feb. 7.
EA will work on producing the movie along with creator John Gatins. The movie will be directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor).
Had the Ford GT40 never won a single race, its stunning looks and potent powertrain would have still made it a highly covetable sports and racing car. The fact that GT40s won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race from 1966-1969, amongst many other racing triumphs all around the world, helped to ensure this 40-inch high racing machine car would become legend.
This 1967 Ford GT40 Mark 1 example, chassis P/1059, is in an extremely original state of preservation and has covered less than 5,000 miles since new. RM Auctions will be handling the car’s sale during the weekend of August 17-18, held concurrently with the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. P/1059 retains its original 289 cubic inch V-8 engine and ZF five-speed transmission, along with an elegant set of Borrani wire wheels. The original “Opalescent Maroon” paintjob has given way to the traditional American racing colors of white with blue striping.
Yet even the ‘modernized’ livery can be traced back to the late-1960s, when this example was one of six GT40s used by Shelby American for promotional purposes.

We are pretty sure that after watching Chris Harris driving the Pagani Huayra in Italy, you are eager to see more and more of this car. So here’s a couple more videos for your viewing pleasure. What better way to spend a Friday night than watching a hyper car being put through its paces – if you are not going out with your friends of course.
The first video is Autocar’s take on the car. Steve Sutcliffe takes the same car Chris Harris drove to the twisty mountain roads around the Pagani factory, and tries to push it a little:
The second video is not really a review, but it’s more interesting. It’s filmed by someone riding shotgun in the Huayra, which is being driven by Pagani’s chief test driver. He really opens the taps on the cars and force it to make odd noises, although the passenger seems more interested in the test driver himself!

It took some time, but Japanese design house Wald International has finally got around to prepare a Black Bison package for the entry-level Lexus model, the CT 200h hatchback.
The CT200h Black Bison Edition comes with a full aero body kit, composed of a new front bumper with LED lights on both corners, side skirts, revamped rear bumper with a matte black diffuser and new exhaust tips, and just in case those…134-ponnies under the hood decide to do something wald, roof and boot spoilers.
Wald has also lowered the hybrid model’s suspension and added a new set of alloy wheels with a black and chrome finish.
The Black Bison package for the compact Lexus hatchback is due to go on sale later this year, with additional information to be released closer to launch.

Fifteen years ago, Mercedes-Benz saw room below its traditional portfolio of rear-wheel-drive sedans for something different. A car tall but short of length, with power routed through the front wheels and provisions for alternative powertrains, and with styling that wouldn’t tick the usual Benz boxes but instead would be funky and contemporary. The A-class was the result.
Audi had a different idea. It would take a corporate front-wheel-drive platform, dress it up with familial and sleek styling, pack in a ton of gadgets, and sell it at a premium price. That car was, of course, the A3.
The four-ringers’ idea was the better, much-copied one, and Mercedes-Benz has implicitly conceded defeat with the new, third-generation A-class. Mercedes’ CC (“Compact Car”) architecture, which forms the basis of the A-class and which will be shared with Infiniti, is decidedly conventional. Unlike with the innovative sandwich-floored first-gen A, there is no room to accommodate, say, a battery pack for hybrid or fully electric versions. (The latest Audi A3 will definitely offer a plug-in hybrid, and an electric model is still on the table.) Only the closely related B-class, which is taller and intended to be a people mover, can swallow a sizable battery pack, although it will compromise interior space.
Abandoning the previous model’s philosophy means the new A-class isn’t the most spacious thing going. But there is plenty of room up front, even as it took some experimenting to find a comfortable seating position. Neither the rear seats nor the trunk are particularly cavernous, but they will be large enough for most excursions or shopping trips.
