Car | Civic Mugen RR Car

Fromcar our recent article about one of the top choices of peoples toy car, we reviewed about the 2007 Honda Civic Type R, it is no doubt one of the best modification made to the Civic, and because everybody loves it so much they've decided to make another modification model which is called the Civic Mugen RR, the name saids it all double the R double the power, well not that much, but it is definitely tougher than the Type R.
Civic Mugen RR tuning and styling parts will not be sold separately, this car is a limited edition and only 300 units are made all red, with an 18 inch 7 spoke forged alloy wheels, inside this car is a carbon fiber-shelled Recaro bucket seats, while the aerodynamics is exclusively restyled the front and rear bumper aprons are made from carbonfibers, the vented bonnet and the new rear spoiler of this car are also in carbon, with an additional Gurney flap.
Note: The Exclusive 18 inch wheels are only being sold to those who has the Mugen RR car.
Civic Mugen RR is expected to have the 2.2 liter version of K20A engine that produces a 256 bhp, but instead they've decided to stick on to the 2.0 liter and make some tweaks and turns, the lightweight scheme on the other hand isn't that much of a factor this time, since the Type R is already been lightweighted this Civic Mugen RR car weighs just 10kgs lighter than the Type R, but thanks to the new cams, the new tailor made 4-3-1 exhaust with high flow catalysts, the new fat tail pipe, the Civic Mugen RR is able to get a power of 237bhp @ 8000 rpm, with a 160lb ft @ 7000 rpm, this new Civic Mugen RR car performs a bit better than the Type R, it accelerates 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds, just milliseconds faster than the Type R and is able to get a top speed of at least 150 mph which is a couple of mph faster than the Type R, not a bad deal since it is still powered by a 2.0 liter engine.

Exotic Car | 2009 Porsche GT1 Exotic Car

Unlikeexotic car the Ferrari who doesn't look up to Veyron's number to beat, their rival Porsche has something different in their minds, they've designed the new Exotic Car Porsche GT1, which they considered it to be a Veyron Killer. Now the question is can it really kill the Veyron? well judging by the details of this exotic car given by Porsche right now... all I can say is "not quite yet"
The 2009 Porsche GT1 is designed wisely by Porsche, making it a light weight exotic car is one of its tactics to beat Veyron, Porsche GT1 will be weighing just 1380kg, it will use the same chassis as the Porsche Carrera GT and this exotic car will have a solid roof unlike the Carrera GT, Porsche GT1 will have a new engine installed that can produce a horsepower of 950 just 50 horses lower than Veyron, but because this car weighs lighter than the Veyron, Porsche GT1's top speed is expected to be around 254 mph, 2 mph faster than the Veyron's 252 mph.
Other details about this exotic car would be that its drive type is an All Wheel drive and it is expected to accelerate much faster than the Veyron, I guess that's the one detail we are waiting for, before we could consider this exotic car 2009 Porsche GT1 a Veyron Killer. While in terms of design Porsche GT1 will look much sportier than the Veyron which looks a bit more of a luxury sports car, but this doesn't mean Porsche has the edge over this.
