Bolivar, Ohio, United States
Upgraded Fuel Pump* *Switzer Midpipe* *Switzer Injectors* *COBB Access Port (cable & box as new from Switzer) *Switzer - In House on Dyno Tune 600awhp (done by us)* *Carbon Fiber Wing Blade* *Flat Bottom, Red Stitched, Thicker Steering Wheel* *Blacked Out Hood & Fender Vents* By adding Intercoolers, Downpipe, Hard Pipe Kit & Intake, you will be at the max the transmission can hold safely, roughly 800hp.Everything, except turbo's, were just installed by Switzer. These are very similar to Switzer's hybrid version. The car just had a week long detail including full paint correction where every panel on the car, goes through a multi-step buff to achieve perfect paint. It then has a glass coat installed which is ground up glass and hardens on top of the paint to give it a extra layer of protection and makes the paint look like glass! This procedure was $2,200!! The best glass coat on the market was used. While the detail was getting completed and the hood snout's & side vents were out, we had them painted gloss black to give a sinister look. I do have the rear GTR badge if you would like to re-install it, I loved the naked look personally. The car also has a beautiful flat bottom, thicker steering wheel installed with beautiful red stitching plus, the rear top blade of the wing is Carbon Fiber. It has been slightly tinted (like a taillight) to blend more with the car's super glossy black finish. Absolutely NOTHING has been repainted, this car is 100% straight and clean all the way around. The car did have a different set of wheels on it which used the OEM tires. When they were removed and the factories re-installed, brand new rubber was also installed, so the tires have roughly 700 miles on them.

Normally we wouldn't suggest trying to float your car on water, but Nissan has made some modifications to turn its new Versa Note hatchback into a makeshift rowing shell.
Nissan replaced the car's rear seats with a sliding rear rowing seat, modified the doors to open wider at 90 degrees and fitted a pair of oars. Most importantly, they put the whole thing on a floating platform to keep it from sinking into Eton Dorney Lake, the site of the 2012 Olympic rowing competitions in England (where the car is simply known as the Nissan Note).
Then they invited medal-winning competitive rowers Helen Glover, Sophie Hosking and Polly Swann to come along and row the thing, making use of the around-view monitor system to see where they were going. All in all it may not be quite as cool as the boats which Fiat made out of the 500 or Mini made out of its convertible, but it's still enough to float our boat. Check it out in the video clip and press release below and the image gallery above.
With Formula One taking to Belgium and the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit this weekend - boasting a reputation as one of the most beautiful courses on the calendar - all eyes will likely be on the tricky Eau Rouge corner, which challenges drivers' high-speed car control over a rolling, tree-lined hill. Infiniti played on the turn's iconic legacy for its ruby red Q50 Eau Rouge concept, and now the brand hopes to trademark the famous racing name so it can keep using it for a potential production version.
In January, the company filed for a trademark on Eau Rouge for "Automobiles and their structural parts; Fuel cell automobiles and their structural parts; Concept cars" with the US Patent and Trademark Office. According to Bloomberg, the application is still under consideration and not yet a guarantee. It's possible that the track could attempt to block the automaker from earning rights to the name. Alternatively, a trademark lawyer tells Bloomberg that the two of them could also strike a deal where Infiniti would pay a small amount for each car sold bearing the title, which could give Spa a bit of extra money in the bank.
Regardless of the name, a vehicle like the Eau Rouge is something enthusiasts have been wanting for years. It combines a modified, 560-horsepower version of the engine from the Nissan GT-R into a four-door sedan covered in aggressive, carbon fiber aerodynamic parts.
Volkswagen may have paved the way for American customers to get used to the idea of German cars produced in Mexico, but it won't be the only one for long. BMW is said to be considering production of the 1 Series, 3 Series and Mini south of the border, Audi is working on its own factory in San Jose Chiapa, and now Mercedes-Benz is reported to be following suit as well. Only instead of building its own plant, Daimler is tipped to use a Nissan factory in Aguascalientes.
According to a report in Manager Magazin recently cited by Automotive News Europe, that's where Mercedes is considering building the GLA, CLA and another A-Class sedan. Just what the point would be of another sedan based on the A-Class in addition to the CLA, we're not sure, but if Benz can produce the larger CLS in addition to the E-Class and S-Class sedans, we suppose there'd be room for an A-Class sedan alongside the CLA as well.
We're still waiting on confirmation and comment from Mercedes on the prospect, but one way or another, the increase in Mexican production of German automobiles seems to be a foregone conclusion.
