The Jeep Wrangler has been around for more than three decades but, before it was introduced, the CJ7 reigned supreme.

That brings us to this immaculate low mileage model, which only has 27,342 miles (44,003 km) on the odometer. Almost as impressively, the CJ7 has managed to survive the past 36 years without being modified.

As you can see, the model appears to be in showroom condition as the original graphics and cinnamon metallic paint job appear flawless. The chrome bumpers and grille insert also look to be in good shape, while the vehicle is largely devoid of rust thanks to a life spent in the southwestern United States.

The cabin is a bit basic by today’s standards, but it features air conditioning, vinyl seats and an AM/FM radio with a cassette player. Given the model’s low mileage, it’s little surprise the interior is in great shape and looks the same as when it was built.

The listing is light on specifics, but the model is likely equipped with a 4.2-liter inline-six that develops 98 hp (73 kW / 99 PS) and 193 lb-ft (261 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a five-speed manual which sends power to a four-wheel drive system.

The seller says the CJ is “absolutely excellent mechanically” and has its original emission system intact. They also noted the model comes with an assortment of original documents including dealer invoices, manuals and the window sticker.

While the Jeep looks phenomenal, it has a buy it now price of $65,000 (£48,340 / €53,446). That’s more than a new Wrangler Rubicon, but CJ7s this good rarely come around.

The hypercar wars are heating up as Hennessey has unveiled the Venom F5.

Designed to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary, the Venom GT successor is named after F5 tornados which have wind speeds of up to 318 mph (512 km/h). That wasn’t an arbitrary decision as it hints at the car’s targeted top speed of more than 311 mph (500 km/h).

In order to hit that impressive number, the car has been equipped with a specially developed 6.6-liter V8 engine known as the Fury. It’s hand-built and features a cast iron block, aluminum cylinder heads and a dry sump lubrication system. The engine has also been equipped with two turbochargers which enable it to be the “most powerful production road car engine ever made.”

In terms of raw numbers, the engine develops 1,817 hp (1,355 kW / 1,842 PS) and 1,193 lb-ft (1,617 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a seven-speed semi-automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. This enables the car to rocket from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in less than three seconds and 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in under five seconds.

Sticking with the performance theme, the Venom F5 has a bespoke carbon fiber monocoque which only weighs 190 lbs (86 kg). This helps the car to tip the scales at 2,998 lbs (1,360 kg) and allows for a power-to-weight ratio “well in excess of any road car on sale today.”

While the top speed is eye-catching, Hennessey said the F5 was designed to be an all-around performer that blends “high levels of driver engagement” with “outright performance to create a motoring experience unlike any other.”

As a result, the car has been benchmarked against some of the best driving cars in the world including the McLaren 600LT and Porsche Cayman GT4. While it remains to be seen how the car is to drive, the model is equipped with five different modes known as Sport, Track, Drag, Wet and F5. The first four are pretty self-explanatory, while F5 is the only mode that will “unlock the maximum available power.”

Given that the car is designed to hit speeds in excess of 311 mph (500 km/h), it comes as little surprise that aerodynamics played an important role in the model’s development. As a result, the F5 has a streamlined shape with a prominent front splitter, a ventilated hood and large side scoops. The model also sports a flat underbody and a McLaren-esque rear end with a ventilated fascia, a large diffuser and four Cerakoted exhaust tips.

Other notable highlights include carbon fiber body panels, butterfly doors and 19- / 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Hennessey also noted the Venom F5 is “100% bespoke” and is only marginally larger than the Venom GT.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as there’s a driver focused cockpit which is awash with leather and carbon fiber. Drivers sit behind a carbon fiber steering wheel and find themselves looking at a 7-inch digital instrument cluster.

In the middle is a minimalist center stack, which is topped by a 9-inch Alpine infotainment system. It features GPS navigation as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Elsewhere, there are carbon fiber bucket seats and a minimalist gear selector. The model also sports machined aluminum pedals and American flag accents on the door pulls.

Production will be limited to 24 units and pricing starts at $2.1 million – excluding taxes and shipping. The first deliveries are slated to begin next year and the company has big plans for 2021.

In particular, Hennessey will conduct an independently verified top speed test at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. There the company will use a 3.2 mile (5.2 km) long runway, originally designed for the space shuttle, to test the performance of the Venom F5.

The company wants to avoid the mess that SSC created for themselves by having “Racelogic / VBOX engineers … on site to install, test and calibrate the speed testing equipment in the F5 to ensure absolute accuracy and transparency.” The event will also be attended by “independent witnesses, media guests and F5 customers,” while GPS data and uninterrupted video footage will made available following the test.

今年9月,Subaru總代理台灣意美汽車曾預告即將導入2021年式XV與Forester,並公布車型編成與預售價,不過當時並未透露2021年式XV的真正模樣,直到今日 (12/16)發布上市新聞稿才確認是比照日規版本進行小改款。



在配備部分,2021年式XV針對2.0i-S與2.0i-S EyeSight兩款車型新增兩組駕駛座記憶功能、速控上鎖、可於排入R檔時同步作動的倒車後視鏡連動系統,另外還新增車前影像輔助系統,駕駛者可透過設置於方向盤右側的啟動按鈕進行操作,在多功能資訊幕查看顯示畫面,顯示車輛前方盲點區域,讓駕駛者掌握車輛周圍的環境狀況。


此外,為了加強操控性能,原廠也強調小改款XV特別針對懸吊系統重新調校,包括修改圈簧係數和阻尼設定,藉此提供更清晰的路感回饋和更加直覺的操控感受,結合SI-DRIVE雙模式動力控制系統,還可提供運動 (Sport)及智慧 (Intelligent)兩種駕駛模式,讓駕駛者依照不同路況和需求自由切換,遇到非鋪裝路面時則可透過X-Mode雙模式附HDC陡坡緩降控制系統來加強越野及脫困能力。

至於同步上市的2021年式Forester,雖然車型縮減到兩款 (2.0i-L EyeSight、2.0i-S-EyeSight),但兩款車型均標配首度導入的Driver Monitoring System智能駕駛警示系統,可提供專注力警示、疲勞駕駛偵測警示及個人化智慧臉部辨識三大功能,降低駕駛因為疲憊或精神狀態不佳導致意外發生的可能性。

-      專注力警示:當警示系統偵測到駕駛視線或頭部方向離開設定範圍,而非專注於前方時,系統將以警示聲響及儀表板顯示提醒。若EyeSight偵測到前方有車時,將會加快偵測速度,提高駕駛充裕的應對時間,來集中專注力。

-      疲勞駕駛偵測警示:當偵測到駕駛閉眼頻率超過系統的設定,將判別為疲勞駕駛:



-      個人化智慧臉部辨識:將於駕駛上車後進行辨識,確認駕駛身份後,會自動調整駕駛者偏好及記憶前次設定之座椅位置/後照鏡角度/空調溫度/多功能行車資訊顯示螢幕上顯示的畫面。此系統最多可記憶五組不同的駕駛者,提升每位駕駛個人化設定的便利性。

不過無論是2021年式XV或Forester,上市後的建議售價仍跟預售價相同,其中XV 2.0i-S車型為105.8萬元、XV 2.0i-S EyeSight為109.8萬元、Forester 2.0i-L EyeSight車型為112.8萬元、Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight車型為122.8萬元,預計本月19日 (六)起就會進駐Subaru全台展示中心。
