Filed under: Concept Cars, Motorsports, Convertible, Videos, Aston Martin We knew Aston Martin was taking three cars to the Nürbrurgring 24-Hour race this weekend, they being a V12 Vantage GT3 car, the Rapide S Hybrid Hydrogen concept and a V12 Vantage N24 that is close to road-legal. We've just discovered that the automaker is bringing a fourth, a concept to be revealed on Sunday, May 19 that we know nothing about save that it will celebrate the company's centennary. Based on the image above it looks like it will be a modern take on the Aston Martin racer from the late fifties that contested the World Sportscar Championship and won Le Mans, but we'll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out. There's a short video below, and a press release on its other 'Ring efforts this weekend, to tease you until then.Continue reading Aston Martin teases "very special concept" to be unveiled May 19 [w/video]Aston Martin teases "very special concept" to be unveiled May 19 [w/video] originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 18 May 2013 17:20:00 EST.

Filed under: Aftermarket, Classics, Budget, Performance, Hatchback, Ford, SpecialtyNow With More EcoBoost There's an EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in there somewhere, and it's headed straight for Ugly Horse. For the second time in my life, I'm staring at an engine in the back of a truck with no concept of how to get it safely into the garage by my lonesome. The first time this happened, I dragged home a $300 International 345 V8 in the back of my Scout Terra only to discover that the bounds of my manliness terminated well before my ability to muscle that 800-pound cast iron block out of the pickup bed. Now you know the story of how and why I bought my first engine puller. Some six years later I'm playing out the same dance, though a Ford F-250 has stolen the Scout's starring role, and there's a towering pallet of thick cardboard boxes in place of the old International mill. It's not that the boxes are particularly heavy. They're just stacked too high to get in the garage. Each one is emblazoned with a massive Ford Racing Performance Parts logo and wrapped in enough plastic to keep both prying fingers and the persistent rain at bay. Good thing, too. There's an EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in there somewhere, and it's headed straight for Ugly Horse. Project Ugly Horse is an ongoing series. Need to catch up?

They’re trying to capture the buzz that pay-TV has generated with high-concept dramas and shorter-order series by investing in event television of their own. And they have loaded up on the one genre that cable... Read more »
She may rise again. The Wonder Woman origin drama Amazon is in active redevelopment at the CW. The project was originally written by Allan Heinberg last season. Despite doing some preliminary casting on the lead while the scripts was still being written, the network ultimately didn’t give it a pilot order, instead rolling it to off-season. A new writer, Heroes alum Aron Eli Coleite, was brought in. Now “we’re waiting for the script to come in,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said following the network’s upfront presentation today. “We do not want to produce something that doesn’t work for that character. It is the trickiest of DC characters to get done.” If the network likes the script, the project will be ordered as an off-cycle pilot. As for The Selection, it is “unlikely” the property will bere-visited again after two failed pilots, the second of which came close to a series pickup, CW brass said. After introducing the limited series concept last season with short-lived midseason drama Cult, the CW is considering doing it with other series this season. No decisions have been made but midseason post-apocalyptic drama The 100 and Sex And The City prequel The Carrie Diaries, both ordered for 13 episode, are potential candidates to air limited number of episodes each season, Pedowitz said. Bringing back half-hour scripted comedies to the CW schedule was one of Pedowitz’s ... Read More »
