Half a million dollars can buy you some pretty remarkable cars and in January 7-16 at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction, one such car will be offered for sale.

What you’re looking at is a 1958 Dual-Ghia Convertible that was one of just 117 units produced by the short-live automaker between 1956 and 1958 and thought to be one of just 32 examples known to exist today. It has a pre-auction estimate of between $550,000 and $650,000.

According to the listing, the car is being sold from the collection of Dr. Chalres Musto that includes nine other Dual-Ghia Convertibles. The car’s rebuilt engine only has test miles on the clock and in 2015, underwent a comprehensive restoration that saw all the chrome components restored, re-produced badging fitted, and the instruments being returned back to as-new condition. Key interior details include a Town and Country radio, a restored rearview mirror, and original side plates with embossed herringbone patterns.

Slotted under the hood is a 315 cubic-inch Dodge D500 engine that produces 260 hp and is mated to a Chrysler Powerflite automatic transmission. The car retains its correct Carter WCFB 4-barrel carburetor, Mallory distributor and Volt Master coil. In addition, it includes the original aluminum battery tray cover, hubcaps, whitewall tires, bumper jack, and spare tire hold-down.

The Dual-Ghia Convertible is one rare beast indeed, but in 2017, one was sold by RM Sotheby’s for $341,000.

台灣福特確定會在 1 月 8 日正式發表 Focus Active 跨界休旅車。有著比 Focus 較高的車高,對手明顯就是鎖定 Corolla Cross。近期國外 Youtube 頻道《km77》,選擇了加長版 Focus Active Sportbreak 跨界旅行車進行麋鹿測試,結果。

跨界旅行車設定的 Ford Focus Active Sportbreak,進行麋鹿測試,最好成績停在時速 75 公里。

Focus Active 是以 Focus 為基礎所打造,離地高度為 150mm,比 Focus 的 120mm 更高,另外具備黑色輪拱、車頂行李架等訴求。Ford 也找來先前幫 Focus 代言的林依晨代言 Focus Acitve。

相較於 Focus Active,《km77》測試的 Focus Active Sportbreak 因為是旅行車,所以車尾較長,但同樣都是擁有離地較高的訴求,能具備基本的輕度越野能力;不過也由於離地較高,對於進行麋鹿測試,是一項不小的考驗。

在《km77》測試下,Focus Active Sportbreak 的麋鹿測試最好成績為時速 75 公里;再上去的時速 76 公里測試下,第一個過彎就已經明顯失控,導致根本無法再進去第二個彎;時速 77 公里時同樣也是如此,在第一個入彎時,更直接撞掉一個三角錐,並且也無法進入第二個彎道。

台灣準備在下週,舉辦 Focus Active 發表會,同樣具備離地高的優勢。

從麋鹿測試中,仍可看出離地高度,在表現上絕對有一定的影響,不過這也是有一好沒兩好的狀態,畢竟跨界休旅的好處,在於上下車更方便,也能具備輕度越野能力,同時比房車、掀背車都擁有更好的駕駛視野。

Τhe Hyundai i30 N now has a sportier look courtesy of Prior Design.

The front-wheel drive compact hot hatch has been fitted with a widebody kit made of fiberglass-Dura-Flex, which is aimed at the pre-facelifted version of the car.

Highlights include the new apron and extensions added to the sides of the front bumper, fender flares, new rear bumper extensions, different diffuser finished in glossy black and a more aggressive roof wing, offered as a bundle at €3,999 ($4,912) in Germany. The multi-spoke, rally-style wheels and the special decals round out the design.

Our Review: It’s True – The 2019 Hyundai i30 N IS A Game Changer

While these mods won’t make the i30 N faster, the stock car already offers very decent performance, with the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint taking 6.4 seconds in the standard variant, which has 246 HP (250 PS / 184 kW). The Performance Package brings 271 HP (275 PS / 202 kW) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) at 1,450-4,700 rpm, or 279 lb-ft (378 Nm) on overboost, produced between 1,750 and 4,200 rpm, dropping the acceleration time to 6.1 seconds.

The latest iteration, which was presented a few months ago, offers 276 HP (280 PS / 206 kW) and 289 lb-ft (392 Nm) in the Performance Package, which makes it 0.2 seconds faster to 62 mph (100 km/h) than the previous version. The facelifted i30 N is set to launch in Europe in early 2021, with pricing to be announced in due course.It will probably come with a small premium over the outgoing variant, which starts at €33,435.29 in the range-topping form in Germany, or $41,067 at the current exchange rates.
