Fuel economy improvements
Extra horsepower and refined engine operation will be the most noticeable features to new 2011 Mustang 3.7-liter V-6 buyers while projected class-leading fuel economy, also a standard feature, offers an additional bonus. The numbers speak for themselves:
• 19 mpg city/30 highway with six-speed automatic transmission, up from 16 mpg city/ 24 highway on the 2010 model with automatic – a 25 percent improvement over 2010
• 18 mpg city/29 highway with six-speed manual transmission, up from 18 mpg city/26 highway on the 2010 model with manual

bugatti 4 door concept



The current Bugatti's are some of the fastest and best engineered cars in the world. And the line is currently owned by VW! of all things...

See what 250 mph is like, in a $million dollar street car;

I don't really know as I hadn't really thought about It, as the body styles seem less important to Me at this point.

For the money, a better bet would be the VW Phaeton with the 6.0 W12 engine - take the limiter off and it can apparently do about 215 mph! The attention to detail is quite astonishing and the build quality is as good as you'll find anywhere. They're cheap to buy, second-hand, too - for some reason people can't see past the badge on it and fail to recognise that it is a superb car in its own right. Of course, it is also 'related' to the Bentley Continental - another VW Group product.



Don't take life too seriously, as you'll never come out of it alive!

Don't know anything about most VW's - never owned one. I'll take a look.

ps. I did own an NSU Prinz(sp?) once, when I was stationed in FRG. 22 HP from the factory, woohoo! lol
