—- The rarest Eliminator was the Boss 302 variant, it included all the
perks of the regular Cougar Eliminator with the addition of the
high-performance 290 hp 302 cubic inch Boss V8 borrowed from the
Mustang.Engineers at Ford built the high performance 302 V8 by
combining the Ford Windsor 302 cubic inch motor and pairing it with
the Ford Cleveland (351 cubic inch) heads. Cleveland heads had larger
valves, larger ports, and the same basic bolt pattern as the Windsor –
although the passages for coolant did have to be modified slightly. In
road-going trim this new engine could produce 290 hp at 5200 rpm
with 290 lbf.ft of torque at 4300 rpm, however it could be revved right
the way through to 6250 rpm.Customers who ordered the Boss 302
package had no choice but to have it paired with a close ratio 4-speed
transmission and a 3.50 Positraction rear end. Power front disc brakes
also came as standard, as did staggered rear shocks, 31-spline axles and
nodular iron case, a rev limiter, and an 8000 RPM tachometer.The
car you see here is one of the 169 original cars from 1969, it was sold
new at Duick Lincoln Mercury in Bowling Green, Kentucky and it’s still
wearing its correct Competition Orange paintwork with the correct black
interior. It’ll be interesting to see where the bidding ends up when it
rolls across the block with Mecum on at the Indianapolis Auction in May,
if you’d like to read more about it or register to bid you can —-
Instead of selling chassis and drive train assemblies to RV companies like Winnebago and Pace, from 1973 to 1978, GMC, the truck and coach division of General Motors, manufactured a technologically-advanced, futuristic, luxury motorhome. Unlike the top-heavy, boxy camper dropped on a Ford or Dodge pickup, the fully-integrated fiberglass body of the GMC was a short 14" step up from the ground, fitted with a wrap-around windshield and expansive windows, equipped with central AC, and rocked some of the best striped paint jobs of the decade. The front wheel drive, disc brakes and 455 engine were lifted directly from the Oldsmobile Toronado. The rear wheels are independently mounted on the chassis without axels. Even with an overall length of 23′ or 26’ and a curb weight over 10,000 lbs, the streamined, aerodynamic design allowed the RV to average 12mpg.
Mattel’s toy version on the GMC motorhome, Barbie’s Star Traveler, was released in 1976
In 1977, GMC announced the discontinuation of the motorhome line with the 1978 model, a decision consistent with GM’s overall down-scaling of its fleet in order to improve fuel economy.
Of the 12,900 GMC Motorhomes made, an estimated 9,000 are still on the road.
Audi Reveals ‘Performance’ RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Models
A new peak is about to be reached in the Audi RS range as RS 6 Avant & RS 7 Sportback ‘performance’ models join their existing counterparts and ramp power up to a colossal 605PS (596hp) and torque to up to 750Nm (553 ft lb).
The two RS high-performance models sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.2 seconds over the respective standard RS model, and need just 12.1 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 124mph. In each case the governed 155mph top speed can be increased as an option to 174mph, or 189mph if the dynamic package plus is specified.
AMG G63 Edition 463 “Nuthin but a G thang”.
ATHLETICISM OFF AND ON THE ROAD
Power and control – in an SUV of the caliber of the Mercedes-AMG G63, these are the key technical parameters. In both categories, the Mercedes-AMG G63 has more than enough to offer: from its highly efficient AMG 5.5-Liter V8 Biturbo Engine, it draws 420kW (571hp) and generates a maximum torque of 760 Newton meters, which gives it outstanding pulling power. Its AMG chassis is equipped with special coil springs and shock absorbers to convert the power of the engine into agile handling without compromising its off-road capability. The AMG high-performance braking system with internally ventilated and perforated disc brakes provides excellent braking performance. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission features AMG shift paddles on the steering wheel and three driving modes with different accelerating and shifting characteristics.

Our man Wes Reyneke is in France at the moment, at the European press launch of the new Harley-Davidson Roadster and Dyna Low Rider S.
After a blast around Marseille and the twisty switchbacks of the Col de L'Espigoulier, he’s impressed.
