The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

A new su­per­car from a for­mer F1 champ: Two-time Brazil­ian Formula One cham­pion Emer­son Fit­ti­paldi, who now calls Florida his home, has a plan to launch an ul­tra-ex­pen­sive two-seat mid-en­gine sports coupe. Only 39 ex­am­ples of the Fit­ti­paldi EF7 GTR are planned. Un­der the hood is a 4.8-litre V-8 sup­plied by Ford that makes 600 horse­power. The track-only car will carry a price tag of US $1.5 mil­lion when it goes on sale next spring.

Big and tall SUVs: If the 2017 New York Auto Show is any in­di­ca­tion, the au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try hasn’t for­got­ten the over­size util­ity ve­hi­cles that many buy­ers can’t seem to live with­out. On dis­play were the 2018 Buick En­clave, Lin­coln Nav­i­ga­tor, Jeep Grand Chero­kee Track­hawk, 2018 Subaru As­cent, In­finiti QX80 Mono­graph and the Ge­n­e­sis (Hyundai) GV80 con­cepts. These mod­els were in ad­di­tion to the pre­vi­ously an­nounced Acura MDX Sport Hy­brid, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Range Rover Ve­lar and Volk­swa­gen At­las.

Only 39 of the track-only Fit­ti­paldi EF7 GTR are planned.
