Ferrari 2009

With one photo in particular appearing the way the infamous video of Sasquatch loping through the woods might look reflected in the side of an oil tanker caked in road scuz, these new Ferrari spy shots are creating quite a stir. Taken from about a half-mile away with a Kodak disposable and a cracked pair of children’s binoculars, the ground-breaker of these spy shots reveals either a Ferrari prototype, an overturned speedboat, or a pile of fresh mulch hidden beneath a red car cover. Location? Unknown, but no doubt somewhere sporty, fast, and with really high fences. Speculation is that this is the replacement for the F430, but we believe otherwise, as customers have been taking delivery of the current mid-engine Ferrari for less than three years. For work on its replacement to be far enough along for test drives on the streets around Modena would be too soon for Ferrari’s usual life cycle.

More likely, these shots show final-development mules for the F430 Challenge Stradale, which has not made an official appearance yet but which our spies managed to catch back in October. As for the mysterious car under the cover, it probably is an undisguised prototype of the Challenge Stradale. If anything about this car is a testbed for the next-generation car, it is possible that what we are seeing is an F430 mule with a prototype powerplant. The greatest question here—other than the eerie appearance of large footprints in the forests of the American northwest—is the truth behind rumors that suggest the engine in the eventual F430 replacement will get its zoom from a 9500-to-10,000-rpm V-8 of more than 500 horsepower. The horsepower sounds reasonable, but 10,000 rpm? Ask Sasquatch what he thinks about that.

Ford Kuga Update: New Image Gallery

FoMoCo has just released a new image gallery of its 2009 Kuga Crossover that was unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. As you probably already know, the Kuga won’t be coming towards our shores, which is pretty lame if you think about the free-fall of full-size trucks and the increasing popularity of compact crossovers in the U.S. market.
In Europe, the Ford Focus (Euro-model) based Kuga will go on sale this summer where it will be initially available with a 136Hp 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine that’s good enough to offer an average fuel consumption of 6.3 lt / 100 km or 37.3 MPG to the front-wheel-drive version and 6.4 lt / 100 km or 36.7 MPG to the all-wheel-drive variant. -Click through for the image gallery.
