Infiniti JX Inspires Cirque Du Soleil

Marketing stunts can be wild and crazy at times, but they rarely involve, well, actual stunts. Despite that, Infiniti will be streaming a live Cirque Du Soleil performance that features the 2012 Infiniti JX. 

Infiniti says the JX will “challenge gravity” in the performance, so we hope to see it flying through the air supported by trapeze artists. The event will be called Le Voyage Inspire, and will be approximately 11 minutes long. Nine Cirque Du Soleil performers will use JX as the focus of their act.

Infiniti is getting the JX name out in as many venues possible lately,  sponsoring NCAA Basketball and now getting into acrobatic acts. Surely the company is trying to guarantee its expectation that the JX will be it’s second best seller.

The Cirque Du Soleil performance will stream live Thursday, March 29, at 12 p.mm Eastern Daylight Time.

Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari F40 Among Exotic Cars To Be Auctioned After Ponzi Scheme Bust

Scott Rothstein was once a prominent South Florida lawyer, famous for his humble roots, flashy lifestyle and philanthropy. But after a suicide attempt and a failed escape to Morocco, Rothsetin turned himself in after federal agents exposed his 1.2 billion dollar Ponzi scheme.

Now, the United States government has seized his assets and is auctioning off an assortment of exotic cars owned by Rothstein and a number of shell companies. The list ranges from the very mild (two Pontiac G6s, a Ford Expedition) to the highest echelons of supercar-dom (two Bugatti Veryons, a Ferrari F40).

If you have the funds, and are looking to score a deal on some serious machinery with, shall we say, interesting provenance, take a peek at the list below and get in touch with the appropriate arm of the federal government.

Hummer Deal Falls Though; GM Announces Brand Wind-Down

Just a day after announcing the successful sale of Saab, General Motors today announced that a deal to sell its Hummer unit of SUVs has fallen through. GM has been negotiating with Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co., Ltd., but today announced in a statement that the Chinese heavy machinery maker was, “unable to complete the acquisition of Hummer.”

GM agreed to try and find a buyer for its Hummer brand upon exiting bankruptcy last year. GM decided to refocus on just four brands (Chevy, Buick, GMC and Cadillac). Since then it announced the shut-down of the historic Pontiac brand and also the wind-down of Saturn after a deal to sell it to Penske fell through. Just yesterday GM completed the sale of Saab to Dutch automaker Spyker.

GM has said it will honor Hummer warranties and provide service support and parts to owners worldwide.

Hummer Buyer Identified as Chinese Heavy Machinery Maker Tengzhong

Earlier today we reported that GM had reached a tentative deal to sell off the Hummer brand to an unnamed party. That company has now been identified as Chinese heavy machinery maker Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co., Ltd. – or just Tengzhong for short.

Tengzhong will take control of the Hummer brand including the senior operational team and the company’s dealership network. It also plans to continue a relationship with General Motors in the immediate future while it looks to expand Hummer with new products.

“The Hummer brand is synonymous with adventure, freedom and exhilaration, and we plan to continue that heritage by investing in the business, allowing Hummer to innovate and grow in exciting new ways under the leadership and continuity of its current management team,” said Yang Yi, CEO of Tengzhong. “We will be investing in the Hummer brand and its research and development capabilities, which will allow Hummer to better meet demand for new products such as more fuel-efficient vehicles in the U.S.”

In an interview with Automotive News, Hummer CEO James Taylor said that long term the company will look to set up its own engineering and marketing offices in the United States.

Taylor also said that Tengzhong’s plans include expanding the Hummer product lineup and using alternative powertrains to help it meet with increasingly stringent environmental standards.

The Tengzhong company is the largest privately owned engineering company in China, specializing in heavy machinery for large scale construction projects, such as roads and bridges. It does not, however, have any experience in building passenger vehicles.

Hummers Are Still Good For Something...

For everything that is wrong with Hummers, they are, apparently, good at off-roading. Proof of that lies in the success of Rod Hall Racing’s Team Hummer effort, which just swept the stock classes at the Best In the Desert (BITD) Racing Association’s FabTech Desert Classic 2008 season finale.

Chad Hall crossed the finish line first (earning him not only the race victory but the stock full SUV class victory) in his Hummer H3. Moments later his brother Josh crossed the line in an H2 SUT, earning the stock full truck class championship.

Then team owner Rod Hall crossed the line in his H3 to secure the stock mini class championship.

The hat-trick not only secured individual and class victories but it also capped-off the 2008 season – the most successful season for Hummer Racing since the team was founded in 1993.
