Ford Taurus

Taurus debuted in 1985 in Los Angeles. The front-wheel drive, mid-size Taurus was available in only two bodies: a four-door sedan and a station wagon. The curb weight of the car was about 1450 kg with a wheelbase of 2.7 m. The futuristic form of the Ford Taurus did not have a radiator grill, but just a panel in body color, where Ford’s oval was located between the headlights. Due to the large glass area and narrow racks, the car had excellent visibility.

Taurus was introduced in four versions: L, MT-5, GL and LX. The L and MT-5 models were quite simple, equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that developed 90 hp.

Ferrari 250

Ferrari with an index of 250 were produced from 1954 until the end of the 60s in numerous modifications, most of which were assembled “individually” or in very limited quantities.

The production of the Ferrari 250 GT model with a three-liter engine from Gioacchino Colombo for more than a decade (until 1968) established for Ferrari the unofficial title of “master of the roads”. Up to 20 Continue reading

The debut of the model took place in 2006, and three years later it underwent a slight restyling. In 2011, the car underwent significant changes. The latest model upgrade was made in 2012. In a word, the car has already managed to make some noise in the domestic market of China, now the manufacturer declares its desire to conquer the hearts of Russian motorists.

Like the Besturn B50, the Besturn B70 is built on the platform of the first generation Mazda 6. Its front suspension uses McPherson struts, and a torsion beam is installed at the rear. However, in order for the chassis Continue reading
