2009 Lexus LX 570

The 2009 Lexus LX 570 is not particularly distinctive and it’s also one of the top choices for towing. In the case of this massive SUV, the advanced electronic mechanization unquestionably improves the ride comfort, safety, and capabilities. This Lexus is an amazing luxury/utility vehicle, capable of a dash to 60 mph in 6.5 sec, while the quarter mile disappears in under 15 sec at over 90 mph, and all this by a behemoth that weighs over 6000 lb.

The 2009 Lexus LX 570 engineers have calibrated the ABS to be effective on both dry pavement and off-road surfaces. Power gets to the full-time four-wheel drive system through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Lexus can also off-road with the best of them. Hill climbs, rock crawling, sand washes -- nothing slows this machine down. Such off-road ability is due to features like Crawl Control, a three-speed downhill assist that also works going uphill, and Active Height Control, which adjusts the vehicle to three inches above or just over two inches below its normal ride height.

The LX570 offers commanding view, with excellent visibility out the front and the expected limited SUV-like sight lines to the sides and rear. It runs with the best, bearing plenty of attractive, plush materials and standout features. The Lexus LX 570 has an ultra-luxurious interior: The wood, leather, and plastics are all elegant and first rate; the fit and finish are impeccable, also the seats don't fold flat; they fold up and hang in the air.

The Ascari A10

The Ascari A10 is the third road car produced by the company, with the name A10 intended to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the company. The Ascari A10 sports car, developed by British manufacturers and similar to the Spanish GT version, is rated in the top ten super cars for 2006. Its lightweight carbon fiber body of less than 3,000 pounds is designed more for the racetrack than the road.

Like its KZ1 predecessor, the 1280 kg A10 will be rare, with just 50 to be hand-built at Banbury. Although expensive, it promises incredible speed and power. The power of the Ascari A10 comes from the modified BMW 5.0 liter V-8 engine, with the standard six-speed sequential transaxle, where the gearshifts operate as paddles, similar to other race cars. It has the same steel sub-frame for the power train and rear suspension as the KZ1 sports car, but the height of the coil spring units can be adjusted hydraulically on front and rear.

Despite is race breeding, the Ascari A10 is intended to be a 'useable' car or on the road. The exterior design of this luxury race car is more dramatic than its predecessor the KZ1, with wider headlamps, a different grille, and higher wheel arches to accommodate larger rear tires. In addition, it features a splitter in the front, fixed rear wing, and five detachable body panels for added race trace utility. The A10 is certainly a rare and distinctive car, one that is much desired to own.
