WD-40 x SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-150

continuing our obsession with one-off things, we stumbled across this one-of-the-kind WD-40 x SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-150. of course, this WD-40 and SEMA Cares collaboration isn’t new, but unlike the collaborations in the past, this beautiful 2013 Ford F-150 Lariat will not go under hammer; instead it be raffled off to one lucky winner in early May 2014. for just 50 bucks for the raffle tickets, which goes on sales on November 1, 2013, U.S. residents will have a shot at owning this Foose-inspired beauty. all proceeds from the raffle tickets will goes to the three SEMA Cares charities, namely SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, Childhelp, as well as Victory Junction. thanks to the Whipple supercharger, Gale Banks Straight Shot performance system and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust system, the truck’s 6.2-liter V8 now yields over 600 ponies (nearly 190 horses more than the stock unit) and is equipped to the core to take on serious off-road duties.

Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops Concept Survival Truck

where other automakers uses R or S to mark their performance models, Lexus opt for F instead. we didn’t even want to begin to understand why a F is chosen but all we know is this F shall be the alphabet for performance – the Lexus way. speaking of which, the latest Lexus to be slapped with the big F is the drool-worthy GS 350. the F Sport package will transform an otherwise docile looking GS 350 into a meaner and more aggressive ride, bestowing it with goodies such as 19-inch rollers, F Sport-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), thicker anti-roll bars, bushing changes, and a new larger front brakes with high friction pads. and that’s just for the handling department.
