Official: 2014 Audi A8 / S8

Although the styling updates are not radical, they manage to improve the overall look of the car. The redesigned headlights and taillights are the most obvious changes, bringing a more contemporary look to the A8 – especially the intricate Matrix LED headlamps, which are available as optional equipment (LED headlights are standard for all V8 models).

More significant changes have taken place under the hood, with the 2014 A8 engines gaining power and efficiency upgrades. The 3.0 TFSI now has 310 PS (306hp, +20hp), while the 4.0 TFSI churns out 435PS (429hp, +9hp). The diesels are also more powerful - the 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel now has 258 PS (254hp, +4hp), while the 4.2 TDI Clean Diesel delivers 385 PS (380hp, +30hp) and an impressive 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque (+50 Nm/36 lb-ft).

MAIER Racing 1966 Mustang Coupé [Big Muscle]

If you’ve ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960’s Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you’ll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement.

Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option.

Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it’s now one of the baddest street ‘Stangs on the planet.

Most people will tell you that “Bigger is always better”… one drive in the Maier Racing ‘66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.
