Word has it Batman just took a trip to Wales to visit the famous Carmarthen Castle and deliver the unique Nissan "Dark Knight Rises" Juke Nismo to its lucky new owner. While the Tumbler vehicle was spotted on site, Batman has gone missing after a couple of stouts.
Jokes aide, the winner of Nissan's "Built to Thrill" competition took possession of its one-off Batman-themed Nismo-prepped Juke in a ceremony that took place in front of the Carmarthen Castle. The meeting was also attended by the legendary Tumbler vehicle, which was hauled to the Wales for the first time in its career.
Unveiled in November 2012, "Dark Knight Rises" Juke was won by Adam Williams, a baker from Carmarthen, who said: "I can't believe I've won this fantastic car - it was the biggest surprise of my life and I was so excited to take delivery of it."
The Ford Indy Speedster V8 was built by Bill Lindig and the team at SO-CAL, it's a testament to classic, race-ready hot rod building and we like it a great deal. The chassis was first conceived by Jackie Howerton, an accomplished second-generation race car driver and lover of all things race car related.
The remarkable titanium and ceramic-coated frame made from 1-3/4 x 0.120-inch 4130 chromoly tubing is a master-class in chassis engineering, the torsional rigidity is far above what we're used to seeing in the V8 powered world of drag racing hot rods. Howerton designed the Indy Speedster to have sprint car-influenced handling with the necessary tweaks to be at home on the street and out on the salt.
As with most hot rods, this car is powered by a V8, in this case it's a 450hp Art Chrisman built 353 inch aluminum small-block Ford V8 with triple Holley carburettors and Howerton-built, titanium ceramic-coated headers. Power is pushed to the rear wheels through a Center Force clutch, an aluminum flywheel and on into a BorgWarner World Class five-speed transmission. The car itself weighs in at 1,925lbs and has a weight distribution of 45/front 55/rear and has a total wheel-base of 110 inches.
The first spy photos showing the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso undisguised surfaced today on the Spanish website Auto Facil. The images were taken by a reader who spotted the larger, seven-seat version of the new C4 Picasso on a parked trailer in Spain. Derived from the shorter-wheelbase model, the second generation of the C4 Grand Picasso shares the same front end, albeit with some subtle modifications such as the black line that unites the Citroen logo with the turn signals and the lower part of the bumper that gets a slightly different design.
