The X5 & Durango…….Cousins? or Maybe Brother from another Father?

The 2014+ BMW X5’s don’t look as intriguing or innovative in design as the past model did. This new design is quite dull and doesn’t have as much curvature as the previous one. It looks like the focus is in giving the car more straight and sharp lines in this new model as well as current FXX chassis models. 2014-bmw-x5-xdrive35i-photo-592072-s-986x603 2014-bmw-x5-xdrive35i-photo-592078-s-986x603 BMW-X5-E70-002 BMW-X5-E70-005 Looking at this vehicle closer, you might notice similarities with another competitors SUV, this SUV is the Daimler-Chrysler partnerships Durango. Okay, maybe I’m loosing my mind, but I definitely thought of the Durango the minute I saw this X5………I’m not crazy I swear. 2016-Dodge-Durango-rear-view rzt_3197

Make me…………unique and one of a kind.

A little nip here and tuck there! The current trend hitting mass produced performance machines is more individualized and unique options to chose from on-site at the dealer/manufacturer. I talked about this with Damlier-Chrysler–I’ll just say Chrysler–giving more personalization options for Viper owners who want to make their cars “special”, instead of picking between 6-9 options for the colour they want.

Prior to this, Toyota’s Scion group and ultra performance cars such as Aston Martins were the select few that had a complete customization package on the car you would like to receive when it rolls out of the manufacturers lot. Where most performance cars had basic options, i.e. sports exhaust system, front aero lip, spoilers, carbon interior, etc. This gives tuners more options to choose from when purchasing from the dealer, without worrying about voiding a warranty and it also gives another incentive to consumers who are shopping for a new ride and want something unique.

So check this awesome looking 1 of 12 M4’s. Its custom made by the ///M Owners Club of Indonesia (MOCI). Its pretty cool in yellow. Even though its one of 12; 12 of the cars made will be in Indonesia, I believe………..personally I’d be annoyed if another club member pulled up at the coffee shop in the…SAME….EXACT….RIDE…..!

Why no 6-speed?

3. SRT Viper GTC: 1 of 1. In order for the Viper to remain relevant it needs to keep itself in the spotlight. Besides dropping a few $$ on the Viper a new custom workshop, just like Bugatti Veyron’s go through will be available to public pockets in the coming months. This is quite interesting.
