630HP LAMBORGHINI HURACAN! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 664 – Fireball heads to see his buddy Pat Rogan who just purchased a 630hp Lamborghini Huracan. Spirited driving ensues…

From WIKI… The Lamborghini Huracán (Spanish for “hurricane”; [uɾaˈkan]) is a sports car built by Lamborghini, replacing Lamborghini’s sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo.

The Lamborghini Huracán made its auto show debut at the March 2014 Geneva Auto Show, and was released in the second quarter of 2014.

The name of the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 comes from the fact that this car has 610 metric horsepower and 4 wheel drive.

The Lamborghini Huracán name (huracán being the Spanish word for hurricane) is inspired by a Spanish fighting bull.

Names from historical Spanish fighting bulls has been the traditional naming scheme of most Lamborghini car models. Lamborghini Huracán was a bull known for its courage that fought in 1879.

Also Huracan is the Mayan god of wind, storm and fire.

Changes from Gallardo included full LED illumination, a 12.3 inch full-colour TFT instrument panel, Fine Nappa leather and Alcantara interior upholstery, redesigned dashboard and central tunnel…

Iniezione Diretta Stratificata (IDS, essentially an adapted version of parent Audi’s Fuel Stratified Injection) direct and indirect gasoline injections, engine Stop & Start technology, EU6 emissions regulation compliance, Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with 3 modes (STRADA, SPORT and CORSA).

20 inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brake system, optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering variable steering system and MagneRide electromagnetic damper control.

The vehicle was unveiled at the March 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and deliveries began in the second quarter of 2014.

The Huracán is comparable to the McLaren 650S and the Ferrari 458 Speciale (as well as its successor, the 488 GTB).

The price of the Huracán with extra options added reaches to over US$320,000, or £200,000. The base price for the Huracán in the United States is US$241,945, and around £180,720 in the UK.

Extra options that increase the price of the car include interior enhancements, special paint schemes, improved suspension, and a lifting system, as well as multiple components optionally available in carbon fiber, rather than aluminium.

Taiwan models went on sale for NT$15,080,000.

FIREBALL DRIVES WORLD’S FASTEST JAGUAR F-TYPE SVR! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 663

WORLD’S FASTEST PRODUCTION JAGUAR F TYPE SVR – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 663 – Thanks to the English Car Company, Fireball drives the World’s Fastest Production Jaguar SVR with 600hp… Off to Supercar Sunday, Ferrari Westlake and a visit by the COPS!

From WIKI… At the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, Jaguar unveiled the F-Type SVR.

It features the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 from the V8 S and R, but with 575 PS (567 bhp) and 680 N·m (500 lb·ft), launching the car from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and to a top speed of (200 mph).

Making it the first Jaguar since the XJ220 to reach 200 mph. The convertible can only reach 194mph. It is available in both Coupe and Convertible versions, but only with all-wheel-drive.

The F-Type uses an all-aluminium chassis, sound and vibration insulation is provided by the addition of a special underbody tray and engine mounts, and a double bulkhead between the engine bay and passenger compartment.

The convertible roof is an electrically operated retractable fabric hood. Jaguar says by eschewing metal it can keep the car’s centre of gravity low, while a Thinsulate layer means thermal and sound insulation is akin to a solid roof.

In 2015, the F Type now introduced the ZF six-speed manual.

This transmission is only available for the V6 models. There is a mechanical limited-slip differential on the V6 S and an electronic limited-slip differential on the V8.

1971 CORVETTE in WAR BONNET YELLOW – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 662 – Coffee, the Beach and to The Automobile Driving Museum by 8am for a Corvette Car Show. Fireball spots a perfect 1971 Corvette LT1 in War Bonnet Yellow.

From WIKI… The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years.

Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year.

The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, while the 1969 through 1976 models mark the second generation of the Corvette Stingray.

1971 cars were virtually identical in appearance to the previous model inside and out.

This was the final year for the fiber optics light monitoring system, the headlight washer system, and the M22 heavy duty 4-speed manual gearbox.

For the first time, air conditioning was installed on most of the cars, with nearly 53 percent so ordered. Engines were detuned with reduced compression ratios to tolerate lower octane fuel.

The small blocks available were the 350 cu in (5.7 L) base engine, which dropped to 270 hp (201 kW), and the high performance LT-1, now listed at 330 hp (246 kW).

The LS5 454 cu in (7.4 L) motor was carried over and produced 365 hp (272 kW). Offered in ‘71 only was the LS6 454 cu in (7.4 L) big-block featuring aluminum heads and delivering 425 hp (317 kW), highest of the 1970-72 series, and could be ordered with an automatic transmission.

The ZR1 option was carried over for LT-1 equipped cars and the ZR2 option, offered this year only, provided a similar performance equipment package for LS6 cars, and restricted transmission to a 4-speed manual.

Rare options: ZR1 special engine package (8), ZR2 special engine package (12), LS6 425-hp engine (188), shoulder belts in convertibles (677).
