The 2014 New York International Auto Show has welcomed today the arrival of the fresh Infiniti QX80, which seems to come with some fresh touches at the body and at the drivetrain.
The 2015 Infiniti QX80 now stands proudly at the event with a “double-arch” grille, with mesh inserts at the front fascia, or full LEDs at the fronts and at the taillights.
The 2015 Infiniti QX80 might be seen as a more bulbous and brutish SUV along with these acute body features, even if it is considered to be one of the most luxurious vehicles for its class.
The 2014 New York International Show has just received the 2015 Subaru Outback, after the automaker first launched its all-new Subaru Legacy sedan at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.
The 2015 Subaru Outback doesn’t come with some important changes at the exterior, as it looks rather the same with the Legacy model, having the same grille shape and headlights.
More than that, the model also bares its older brother`s hood and side mirrors.
One of the main attraction of the 2014 New York International Auto Show so far must definitely be the SRT`s Viper GTS Anodized Carbon that has been equipped with the Time Attack package.
The SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Time Attack is based on a Metallic Mate color at the exterior, along with some fine cool tweaks like carbon fiber at the rear spoiler and a two-piece splitter at the front.
Ralph Gilles, the CEO and the president at SRT stated in an interview that the Time Attack was well received with its Metallic Mate color at the exterior.

Power is offered by the same 4.7-liter V8 powerplant delivering 454 horses and 520 Nm of torque. The 0-100 km/h sprint is done in 4,7 seconds with some help from the six-speed automatic transmission.
The top speed of 297 km/h also remains untouched in this special edition.
Nissan officially revealed the new Murano crossover at the New York Auto Show, a model which will go on sale in the coming months. At the exterior, the updated model stands out thanks to the 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, a revised front grille and slightly improved bumpers.

This year, the Ford American based car manufacturer has come up with a special 2015 Ford Mustang at the 2014 New York Auto Show, to celebrate 50 years of Mustang existence on the roads worldwide.
Along with the launch of the 2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Edition at New York, the automaker has decided to limit the number of the supercars being made, with just 1,964 units.
The 2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary edition will be coming with the Performance Pack in just two special colors, like Kona Blue and Wimbledon White, seen in the pictures.
The 2014 New York Auto Show is glad to welcome the 2015 model Hyundai Sonata that comes with a new different approach in terms of body language and style.
We are looking at a more daring and mature Sonata, which seems to have gotten the fine touch of the automaker`s “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” design, also seen in the smaller Genesis.
Along with this Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata loses the old swooping lines, coming with some new straight edges and new angles that are now harder and more noticeable along the beltline of the car.
Now at its 48th edition, the Jeep Easter Safari is a well known place of gathering for all things off-road, even if most are Jeeps.

The international car market is changing and emerging economies are beginning to make their presence felt. Jaguar, Land Rover is a good example.
It now exports 80% of its production and its biggest single market is not the UK or US: it’s China.
With the electric drive train becoming cheaper and more versatile, the machines they power also start to vary in shapes.
Electric bikes have been on the market for quite some time now, but there is still a lot more room.
Italian bike builder Bad Bike proves that with their latest creation, the Beach Vintage Side, the world’s first electric sidecar bicycle. Powering the machine is a 250 W electric motor, assisting in pedaling, but Bad Bikes also offer a more powerful, 500 W option.
