The famous Polestar Performance aftermarket shop has recently upgraded the Volvo V40 and the result is an extraordinary piece of art. The new model has been called the Volvo V40 Carbon and involves, as the name suggests, the use of carbon fiber components on the body.

This is not the first time that Volvo has been working with Polestar Performance tuning company, releasing the first Polestars vehicles a few years ago. And now, the new Volvo V40 Carbon is here for the taking, being based on the V40 R-Design model. Inside, the cabin has also received carbon fiber sill plates or the seatbelts now fitted in red.

This means that the Volvo V40 Carbon is now fully tweaked with a lot of carbon fiber parts, on the roof or side mirror caps. Additionally, some new black tailpipes and black accents were also wrapped on the body. Engineers from the aftermarket shop have also praised the Volvo V40 Carbon, mentioning its strong points, like the improved “drivability and driving control.”

The North American based Ford carmaker has presented the concept of the Ford GT at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and now, the very first spy shots with the test mule have been released over the web, curtesy to Motor Authority.

The spy shots are revealing the test mule with the Ford GT wearing no camouflage, meaning that it would look just like the concept presented in Detroit, except for some minor adjustments at the body, giving the fact that the model is still in the work. We should see new exhaust tips mounted at the center of the rear bumper, as well as a rear diffuser which would hide the mufflers.

However, there are still no good news concerning the powertrain it will fit under the hood, the engineering team from Ford still debating on the power.
