VIDEO: Mustang gets Aston Martin Vanquish V12

Then their is the Mustang after market world, with distinguished companies like Saleen where you can customize the car greatly. One item in a mustang that is rare is a Aston Martin Vanquish V-12 engine, we feel this item should be more common.

Would You Buy a 4-Cylinder Camaro, Challenger or Mustang?

Speaking at the New York Auto Show, GM’s Vice Chairman Bob Lutz revealed that General Motors is considering a 4-cylinder for the new Chevrolet Camaro if fuel prices continue to hike. In particular, Lutz said that the drivetrain under consideration is the 260 Hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit from the Pontiac Solstice GXP. How would v-6 and v-8 american hungry buyers react to american muscle cars with 4 cylinders, even though they're high powered turbo engines. See when you think of muscle car, you think big engine, loud noise and fast car. So, how would it look when american cars are switching to 4 cylinders which will be quiet and not as fast. Should american companies continue to put big engines in them since they are muscle cars and represent a look to the car or go with popular trends and put 4 cylinder engines in them. My question is simple, how would you react to 4 cylinder engines in camaro,mustang and challenger and would you buy them?[Source Car Scoop]
