Valvoline commercial features some great classic cars

This Valvoline commercial released several months ago is definitely cool as it celebrates anyone looking for more speed from their cars. Here’s a list of the vehicles you’ll see in the commercial and the connection to Valvoline:

- Early 1900’s Model T – 1920. When the Model-T is mass produced with a side-valve 4-cyluinder engine, only one motor oils is recommended to keep them all running… Valvoline In face, each car has a plaque mounted on the dash panel that reads, “This car is filled with Valvoline light motor oil. We recommend its use. No other oil should be used in this car.”

- 1950’s Hot Rod – With the economy in high gear, hot rods are all the rage and people are driving them more often. Automakers shift to the powerful overhead valve V8 engine. Valvoline responds with its all-climate oil, so people don’t have to switch oils every season

- 1970’s Dodge Charger – 1978. As more drivers hit the road, they become more comfortable in their own garages. Valvoline gives DIY car guys a leg up by posting oil change instructions on its labels.

- 1980’s Pontiac Firebird – 1985. Overhead cams and electronic fuel injection systems start appearing in many cars, making them more reliable and their engines longer lasting. To withstand increasingly hotter engine temperatures, Valvoline introduces its first synthetic blend of motor oil.

- Modern Day Mustang – In response to the aging population of cars from the 80s and 90s, Valvoline develops MaxLife, which restores lost horsepower in cars with over 75,000 miles

The Mustang Boss drives great on the track

Bullz-Eye.com headed out to Miller Motorsports Park near Salt Lake City, Utah to drive the 2013 Mustang Boss 302 on the track. It was quite an experience!

There are few things quite as exhilarating as driving a muscular sports car on a track. Driving on the open road or through winding mountain roads can be great, but pushing a beast like the Mustang Boss 302 around the tight turns of a racetrack and then flooring it on the straightaway will give you a thrill you’ll never forget.

The Boss 302 is an iconic Mustang that was resurrected for 2012 and has some cool updates for 2013.

Porsche Spider Gallery

For all of your Porsche Spider fans you are going to love what will be on display at the LA Auto Show. With horsepower improved to 320-hp and Porsche’s new dual clutch PDK transmission heads will not only turn but will push hard on the headrest when accelerating! Enjoy the gallery of these beauties!

From AutoGuide.com:

But what really makes the Spyder special is its light weight chassis and more powerful engine. In total 176 lbs of weight has been cut from the car, to deliver a curb weight of just 2,811 lbs. Power comes via the same direct-injection 3.4-liter flat-six as in the Boxster S, but with a 10-hp jump to 320-hp. Combined with Porsche’s new dual-clutch PDK transmission, the car can hit 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds.

The Boxster Spyder will be priced from $61,200 and will go on sale in February of next year as a 2011 model.

The Ferrari 599 GTO

It’s nice to dream about cars we know we’ll never own so let’s add this Ferrari 599 GTO and place it right at the top! It might get rough though because Ferrari is reportedly only going to produce 500 of these bad boy.

This machine looks unreal….

Ferrari is reportedly taking pre-orders for an ultra-high-performance version of the already impressive 599 GTB. The vehicle, referred to as the 599 GTO on Ferrari’s ordering information, is rumored to be inspired by the 599XX track-only model that launched earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show.

Not only would the 599 GTO get a more powerful V12 engine with anywhere from 680 to 700-hp (up from the standard car’s 611-hp rating), but it would also weigh anywhere from 100 to 150-lbs less. We expect a more light-weight race-inspired interior as well as carbon fiber body parts to help reduce the weight.

With just 500 models set for production the asking price would be closer to the $400,000 mark.
