New Toyota Ponam-28V Boat is Powered by a Land Cruiser Motor

Toyota revealed that the latest version of its Ponam boat range will be a 28V sports cruiser and it will be powered by the same engine that powers the Land Cruiser.

Specifically, it will be the same 4-cylinder 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine that is fitted in the Land Cruiser Prado SUV as well as the Hilux pickup truck. However, for the Ponam-28V, the motor has been tuned to adapt it for marine use and thus, it displays an output of 256 horsepower (191 kW). While Toyota declined to reveal the actual top speed, the light weight means that it could go through the water at possibly high knots.

Since the control system is based on the same system used by cars, it makes the Ponam-28V easy to navigate in calm waters or even in coastal areas where it is originally designed to be in. Fitted to it is a virtual anchor to make sure that the boat is maintained on a fixed point.

515 Project One powerboat by Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing is unveiled at 2018 Miami Boat Show

Mercedes-Benz recently published an AMG Project One teaser, and just by hearing those words, I am pretty sure that we got you excited. But here is the thing, it wasn’t a teaser of a hyper car this time, but a boat instead - or should we say hyper boat?

This boat is not like any regular boat out there, but it can be more accurately described as a Cigarette Racing offshore powerboat. It has been inspired by the impressive Mercedes-AMG Project One. The good news here is that we have been given full disclosure on this boat, and we are telling you now that it isn’t like your regular seagoing yacht that has an automaker’s badge but cannot perform. In fact, this is quite the opposite of that. With over 51 feet in length, this model is packed with carbon fiber, and can do 140 miles per hour (225 kilometers per hour) on water.

This boat is called the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It does not have the hypercar’s monstrous engine but that is completely fine with us. In fact, the Mercedes AMG Project One’s 1,000 horsepower engine will not get the boat anywhere near 140 miles per hour, and that is why this water borne Project One has been equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing quad-cam V8 engine that brings out 1,350 horsepower (1,006 kilowatts) each.

Aston Martin AM37S luxury speedboat heads to Monaco Yacht Show

Aston Martin and Quintessence Yachts are finally done building the AM37 after endlessly teasing us with mere renderings of their speedboat. They initially made two examples of the vessel in which one is finished in Ocellus Teal exterior with Ivory cabin while the other one is in Diavlo red with a cream leather interior. The third one is said to be already under production but we are not sure when or where it will make its first voyage. Aston Martin plans to make only ten of these annually which should cost around $1.6 million apiece.

Arriving at Monte Carlo for the 4-day event are two bespoke examples of the speedboat which will be featuring a 15-inch touch screen, a foldable swim platform and touch-screen operated sliding lightweight carbon-fiber panels. While Quintessence Yachts hails from the Netherlands, the AM37 is being manufactured and produced near Southampton England to be closer to Aston Martin’s British heritage. The Monaco boat expo is currently being held and runs from September 27 to 30.

The AM37S or the top model is equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing’s 520hp gas-fueled engines (388kW) producing a combined output of 1040hp or nearly the same output as Aston Martin’s Valkyrie with 1130hp. There are two other engine options in which the mid-range model gets a pair of 430hp (321kW) gas-fueled Mercury engines while the standard vessel shall receive a pair of diesel powered 370hp (276kW) engine.

2018 Toyota Land Cruiser makes its official debut at Frankfurt

2017 Frankfurt Motor Show is not just about new concepts and supercars that we have never seen before. The most common brands like Toyota, Ford and Honda also have interesting things to showcase during the event.

In this case, Toyota has finally unveiled the facelifted 2018 Land Cruiser at the IAA show, after months of bombarding us with online images. The off-roader went through a couple of obvious changes on the exterior like the redesigned front fascia. It now has a new grille with an intricate design and larger openings upfront, that makes it more effective in cooling the engine.

Naturally, it will boast the latest Toyota Safety Sense that features a pre-collision system, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and many more.

It is already September and we are all excited about the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, more so because automakers have been revealing previews and teasers (online) of models and concepts that will make their debut at the auto show. Today, it is Toyota that teases us with two new crossovers: the Hybrid C-HR Concept and the new Land Cruiser.

The C-HR Hy-Power Concept is a representation of possible additions for its compact crossover’s engine range. Toyota is being a tease, only providing few details about the vehicle, and that is the crossover’s license plate and lower fascia. Having said that, it makes us think that the model has been given a change in terms of design. And during a press release, the company’s spokesperson did say that the people behind Toyota’s European Design Center will give the C-HR a little bit of facelift to emphasize its emotional and powerful look, while hinting that they will be expanding the company’s hybrid powertrain line. That is all we got from the Hybrid C-HR Concept, and that’s sad because there’s still so much we want to know.

As mentioned earlier, the Japanese automaker also gave us a preview of the new Land Cruiser before it makes its debut in Frankfurt. Though they still kept their mouths sealed, they couldn’t help but share some details regarding the range-topping SUV. One thing we are certain about is that it will still be riding on a body-on-frame chassis.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster may be the fastest car out there, capable of reaching 60 miles from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, plus having a top speed of 217 miles per hour. But where will the Aventador end up if it runs out of road to drive on? We all know that the planet is made up of 70 percent water.

Well, that doesn't seem to be a problem. If you have the money to get yourself that roadster, you sure can afford a speedboat to pair with it. There is a listing on JamesEdition in Fort Lauderdale of a Lambo Aventador SV Roadster with a matching catamaran. And yes, they really do have matching colours.

Just like the roadster, the catamaran was customized to look like it is the supercar's big brother. The 52-foot MTI G6 has been finished with a Verde Singh shade paired with Alcantara upholstery, and of course the carbon fiber trim. And that's not all, as the speedboat comes with a steering wheel, marinized switchgear, door panels, and lighting from the Aventador - literally the works.

Toyota's legendary four-wheel sport utility vehicle has been regarded as an iconic vehicle and has snatched up approval left and right over the 60 years that it has been released by the Japanese automaker. And now, Toyota Land Cruiser has added another achievement under its belt, the label of the "World's Fastest SUV". My oh my, we have a speed devil out here.

Previously at SEMA, Toyota gifted us the iconic Land Cruiser that is claiming to reach speeds of up 220 miles per hour. And the interesting part is that the we are talking about a vehicle that has an old-school body on frame model that has nearly 3 tons of 3 row seat leather seating that caters to 8 passengers. It is fitted with a 5.7 L V8 engine that can produce a whopping 381hp and has full four-wheel drive, and an $85,000 price tag. Considering its overall weight and built, we were doubtful that this SUV can go very fast, not to mention breaking speed records.

However, we were proved wrong by the Mega Land Cruiser, as it didn't only break the 220mph record. It also annihilated the 211 mph record held by a Brabus-modified Mercedes GLK V12 by completely speeding off to an impressive 230 mph. By now we are asking on how on earth did the Japanese automaker convert the normal Land Cruiser into a speeding maniac? All of these awesomeness starts with the boost. A pair of Garrett turbochargers were installed by scientists up at Toyota's Motorsports Technical Center, adding up to 55 lbs of pure boost.

When Toyota first revealed that it will be showcasing a total of 30 vehicles for the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association, enthusiasts could hardly contain their excitement. However what is even more thrilling is that six of these have been modified to show just how extreme Toyota’s models can go.

According to the Japanese automaker, each of these six models either honors the brand’s heritage, looks at the current state, or projects what the future will be. There are also models that appear to be a combination of these three. Since the brand will be having what can be considered as the largest exhibit in the history of the SEMA Show, it is not surprising that Toyota went on this path. Below are the six models that Toyota took a chance on and gave a number of improvements.

The first is the Swagger Wagon, which is actually the Sienna in blue. Some would call this as the height of luxury when it comes to transportation, with the best description of the Swagger Wagon being that it is similar to a flying jet. While this minivan is now wider and lower, the brand put a number of enhancements composed of carbon fiber as well as those inspired by racing. However, the interior is what makes it stand out given its use of custom-leather, capacity for wi-fi connectivity, and the inclusion of a high-end theater system. With all these on the inside, customers are likely not to concern themselves with how the exterior actually looks.

The French have come to be known as some of the fanciest people in the face of this planet. Call it stereotypical but we’ve seen how these people have valued style, aesthetics and their love for art. Almost anything and everything French is as impressive as can be so it’s not a surprise that Blue Coast Yachts, a France-based shipyard, was able to pull off an equally sophisticated trimaran.

For those not familiar with ship and sailing terms, a trimaran is a multihull boat or yacht that is made up of a main hull with two smaller outrigger hulls (called floats) attached to it via a set of lateral beams. These yachts are most commonly used for recreational purposes as well as racing, and quite a few of them as ferries and warships. Recently, Blue Coast Yachts showed the world their latest project – a 60-meter Power Trimaran. Photos of the yacht have been posted on BCY’s official website and it looks absolutely stunning.

The yacht was designed by Coste Design & Partners and shows off a dazzling combination of luxurious interior architecture and a touch of elegance on its exterior styling. The designer used new concepts that are now common on technologically advanced yachts, adding an extra sliver of sophistication on the vessel and stamping the brand in the international luxury market.

Toyota celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Land Cruiser this year and in order to mark this event, the Japanese manufacturer announced that it will build the original Land Cruiser 70 for one year. This is probably the best move we’ve ever seen from a car manufacturer. Apparently, the demand is still strong for this model and the Toyota expects to sell around 200 units each month.

The Land Cruiser 70 will be produced only in Japan and will be offered as a double-cab pickup truck and as a four-door van. For those who don’t know, the Land Cruiser 70 was launched back in 1984 and was discontinued in 2004, but the model is still available in markets such as Australia and other parts of Asia.

The relaunched model uses an updated version of the 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine fitted with an aluminum block and with VVT-I, capable to deliver 231 hp (170 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft of torque).

The living legend Riva Aquarama Lamborghini has been revived and is now as good as new. The legendary sports boat is now ready to cruise, after years of being hidden from the eyes of the public.  The Riva Aquarama Lamborghini was built 45 years ago and was commissioned by Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the Italian sports car brand.

It had been stashed in a boatyard and hidden under an old tarpaulin, thus the world never caught glimpse of it again. While fans and enthusiasts knew about Ferruccio Lamborghini’s Riva Aquarama, the legendary sports boat was nowhere to be found since its owner passed away in 1993.

It only resurfaced after a Dutch Riva collector was able to track it down and had Riva World fully restore it to original condition by Riva World. Three years after the restoration work on the Aquarama Lamborghini commenced, the sports boat now exudes the glory and the splendor it once had.

The 1962 Chris-Craft “Holiday” boat will soon cruise the seas powered by a V8 engine of Infiniti QX56. The hot-rodding of QX56’s engine in the Holiday is a collaboration project of students from Tennessee Technical Center-Nashville and Nashville State Community College with their instructors and some Infiniti personnel. The students have completed the first phase of the project.

After the 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine was removed from the QX56, it was dispatched to Bracket Marine in Westbrook, Maine for a trial fitting. The engine’s bell housing was also modified so that it could be used with the ZF/Hurth marine transmission.  The project is currently on its second phase. The engine is undergoing “marinization,” during which water-cooled exhaust manifolds are fabricated and a closed cooling system is adapted.

It will then be sent to Infiniti’s engine facility in Decherd, Tennessee, where its horsepower and torque will be tested to make sure it remains at par with factory specs. The engine will go back to Maine, where it will be installed in Holiday’s hull, which is currently undergoing total restoration. Following the restoration, the students will commence the third phase, the reassembly.
