The 2019 Kia Forte sedan has actually already been revealed at this year’s Detroit auto show. The new model is sharp-looking and features a fastback-like rear end with a shortened overhang. It’s 3.2 inches longer and slightly taller and wider than the outgoing model. Similar growth philosophy can be expected in the Forte5 hatchback as well.
The Japanese manufacturer’s cars are efficient and fun to drive mostly thanks to their revolutionary SkyActiv-G engine technology. Mazda isn’t resting on its laurels, though, and is preparing a whole new generation of SkyActiv-X powerplants. These new engines will be able to use extremely lean fuel mixtures like the homogeneous-charge compression-ignition engines.
The F136 can be found in the Ferrari F430 and California, the Alfa 8C, and Maserati models dating back to 2002. This includes the often-daily-driven-by-pretentious-fools Quattroporte, lending credence to its reliability, but if you want the real deal step up and pull one out of a 458.
The Ford Mustang Boss 429 is one of the rarest of the hot cars on our list. In fact, it is one of the rarest muscle cars ever built. There were only 1358 built in 1969 and 1970. The Boss 429 was built for racing at a time when Ford was getting its ass handed to it in NACAR’s Sprint Cup Series by the 426 Hemi-powered Chrysler cars. At the time, NASCAR rules required that an engine used in the Sprint Cup Series had to be fitted to at least 500 cars sold to the general public; thus, the Mustang Boss 429 was born!
