Haval’s new H6 SUV will make people over look the C-word

Haval’s new H6 SUV will make people over look the C-word

There’s a completely new brand of SUV called Haval coming to South Africa, which is nice. But if you buy one, be prepared to hear the C-word. A lot. Haval is Chinese, a part of the Great Wall Motors (GWM) group. While some early models were badged “Great Wall Haval”, it’s now a standalone SUV brand.  “Early” is a relative term for a company that was only founded in 1990. But the range now includes the small H2, the large H8 and the off-road-style seven-seater H9. Haval’s newest model is the mid-sized H6, which is currently…

When Lamborghini relieved the Huracan of its front driveshaft, thus making it rear-wheel drive, it also cut power from 449Kws to ‘just’ 427Kws.

Novitec’s Huracan will also do smokey drifts. Bigger ones, if the power figure is anything to go buy. To the naturally-aspirated V10 the German tuner has bolted two – yes, two – superchargers, taking total output to…

BMW has unveield the DTM Champion Edition M4, complete with a huge rear wing, a BMW M colour sticker kit and a power boost up to 493bhp.   Effectively an M4 GTS but with a different set of decals, the DTM special uses the same water injection technology and has a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds. The car also comes with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and the quite frankly ludicrous titanium exhaust system found on the GTS. The sticker and aero kit is said to mimic DTM race…
