During the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, Renault-Nissan group announced they were reviving the Alpine brand... for real this time.
They lapped this concept around Monaco track today:
First car should be available in 2016. Trying to get more info if it will be road legal version of above car or something different
Looking at that, i'd be shocked if they didn't race it.....
^ I read it *may* replace the Megane Trophy in the mean time
Is that a new engine? It makes a more high pitched noise than the Trophy II? Looks neat.
VF Commodore to make its Holden debut ahead of Chev SS export model next year
18 May 2012
By RON HAMMERTON
HOLDEN'S lighter, more fuel efficient and more powerful new VF Commodore will land in Australian showrooms next year ahead of the North American debut of its export variant, the Chevrolet SS, in late 2013.
GM Holden last night confirmed the 2013 rollout for the locally designed and engineered large-car twins, with the left-hand-drive American version set to go on sale in limited numbers as a premium high-performance SS sedan.
The company did not rule out exports of Chev-badged Holden Utes and Commodore Sportwagons to the US alongside the SS sedan at a later point, with Holden engineering executive director Greg Tyus telling journalists in a phone hook-up from Holden’s Melbourne headquarters: “We are discussing sedan at the current time.”
Great just what the world needs. Redneck yanks turning into bogans.
Now knowing some of the people who bolt them together, I wouldn't ever feel comfortable driving in one ever again. Not that you'd ever feel comfortable in them, the seats are like balancing on a beach ball and they have weird spots for putting their switches and knobs.
Luckily I don't know anyone who bolts Falcons together, that too could shake my faith in driving the XR.
My Indian mate was a 'torque inspector' and an electrician at Ford in Broadmeadows for a while. Does that help?
"Mate" puts him higher up the chain than the GM bloke I'm thinking of.
