Self-Parking Cars, Fast Jaguar, & Mustang Speed
July 24, 2017
Tired of the hassle of parking your car in a parking garage? Why not let the car park itself? Daimler and Bosch have teamed up to create Automated Valet Parking. Drivers’ use their smart phones to send instructions to the car. The car then goes to an assigned parking spot by itself. It’s being tested at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. Take a look. The driverless customer service begins next year.
Jaguar has unveiled their fastest XJ sedan… the 2018 XJR575. It takes 44-seconds to reach a top speed of 186-miles an hour. That’s how long it took Jaguar designer Wayne Burgess to describe the new XJ flagship. The force behind this performance sedan is a 575 horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine.
Ford is also thinking speed, presenting their fastest Mustang GT. The say the 2018 Mustang GT in Drag Strip mode can reach 60 mph in under four seconds. The rush comes from a 460 horsepower 5.0-liter V8. Look for it in showrooms this fall.
