Die Hard 4.0

Now here's one of the must-watch-movies on my list. I am not sure about you but I have always been a big fan of John McClane (Bruce Willis) in Die Hard series. I am sure the "old-time" mega movie star still has something up his sleeve to show us. Just can't wait for its premier to hit cinemas on 27 June 2007 (in US, still not sure about the local release dates). For the time being, check out the cool trailer for "Die Hard 4.0 - Live Free or Die Hard"

Ford Shelby Mustang DT500KR

I just had to put up this post because this beast machine is just too exquisite to ignore. Kudos to Ford and Carroll Shelby for reviving yet another great performance moniker - the GT500 KR (King of the Road) - for 2008. Modifications to the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 allow the engine to produce 540 hp and 510 lb-ft, coupled through a Tremec 6-speed transmission. A retuned suspension package, consisting of unique springs, dampers and a strut tower brace, help the new KR handle better than its ancestor. Shelby tops it off with a carbon-fiber hood that emulates KRs of days past. The GT500 KR goes on sale in spring of 2008, but act fast - only 1000 will be built. Now how I wish I have the extra cash to get one for myself...
