The engine found inside a vehicle usually receives a name based on some sort of manufacturer specific numbering and lettering convention. However, every once in a while a manufacturer will feel a little fiery and give that new hunk of metal an actual, proper name.
So, you call yourself a car guy. Fair enough, you’ve browsed on over to AutoGuide so you must have at least a little petroleum in your veins. But are you a true automobile enthusiast? Do you know your accelerator pump from your synchronizer? Here are 10 vehicles every car guy needs to know about.
Ford officially announced its 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet at the 2011 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Orlando, Florida, ready to roll into NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock classes and start dominating. The 2013 Cobra Jet will be limited to just 50 units and orders can be placed at a local Ford dealer where it’ll be first come, first serve.
For decades, Cobra has provided drivers with the technological edge necessary to speed without the risk of getting caught. After endless efforts from speeders and enforcers to one-up one another, Cobra finally revert to the age old adage of “strength in numbers” and “the power of the people.”
OK, so you can’t actually download an app to your iPhone that lets it operate as a radar detector. The iPhone may do a lot, but it isn’t all powerful.
No, this product is probably more of a novelty than a necessity, but it’s definitely cool to see where technology and in-car integration is going. Cobra, a popular manufacturer of radar detectors, has paired up their newest product with the ever-popular Apple iPhone. Dubbed the iRadar, it is essentially an app for the iPhone that connects to Cobra’s newest and greatest radar detector.
The Cobra iPhone Radar Detector sports 360-degrees of detection against regular radar and laser guns. Essentially the iPhone is connected to the radar detector via Bluetooth giving the end user a touch interface to control the detector’s settings.
The iRadar is currently available for $169.95 which includes access to Cobra’s AURA Camera and Driving Hazard database.
Official press release available after the break.
