Some of those parts will make it go faster, others will make it handle batter, and some will simply make it, um… cost more? Take the latest offering from LSD design, dubbed the LSD Flügeltürbeschläge: Lambo-style doors to us common folk.The LSD door kit comes as a bolt-in kit replacing the GT-R’s standard hinges and requiring no modifications to paint or panel work.

Oval shapes, decent sporty feeling and quite powerful engine – these are the main characteristics of this ride. Personally, we like this car very much and we can imagine various types of modifications.
Suzuki offers a few engines, but the most powerful is the 1.5 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine with 102 hp (75kW). Considering the dimensions it’s very nice value.
The body kit consist of the front and rear bumper for 3- or 5-door body + sporty version (duplex exhaust tips) and side sills only for the 3-door version.
We must say that the front bumper matches great thanks to its shape and layout. Together with the front part make a perfect harmony. Its central part includes a quite big cut-out filled with a black perforated sheet and bounded with rounded edges to correspond with the side openings.

This new attitude by Toyota was reflected first in 1967, with the 2000GT, a swoopy sports car built for Toyota by Yamaha. Featured in a contemporary James Bond film, the 2000GT, with its DOHC inline-6, would later become the inspiration for the Supra (the 2000GT name was also used on later Japanese Celicas and Supras) . As a sidenote, the legendary Datsun 240Z appeared in the same time frame, and may actually have been designed on the same concept as the 2000GT.
The FT-HS hybrid sports concept car will be premiered on January 7 at the North American International Auto Show, and we can expect 50:50 weight distribution and a 400+ horsepower monster with a drivetrain very similar to the Lexus GS 450h: a 3.5 liter V6 coupled to Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) system (which could mean SULEV emissions, but no word on fuel economy yet). This could be the next Supra.

Toyota furnished to Italdesign-Giugiaro a derivative of its ultimate hybrid system, the one adopted on the Lexus RX 400. On the Volta, the 3.3 liter V6 petrol engine is fitted behind the rear axle and not connected directly to the wheels. Indeed, motion is ensured by two electrically powered engines, one per axle thereby securing all-wheel drive and enhanced safety. As such, this epoch-making mechanical layout paves the way to eliminating the traditional transmission and gearbox longitudinal encumbrance.
