AutoComplete: Dodge has a new, more budget-friendly drag race specialPlus: Uber wants to provide in-car vending machines and Nismo elevates the humble Leaf.
Here is what's making news on Road Show. If you have an addition to drag racing, but building your own doesn't seem fun and buying a [UNKNOWN] or a [UNKNOWN] is out of your price range? Then dodge has yet another solution for you in a form of the 2019 challenger r/t scat pack 1320 The 1320 is a single seat naturally [UNKNOWN] drag race special that will retail for under $50,000 and comes with a line lock for big smokey burn outs, a trans break for harder launches and beefed up axle so you can survive said launches. Uber's partnering with an in car vending machine start up called Cargo to offer passengers the opportunity to buy snacks, drinks and even electronics during their ride. Think of it kind of like an airplane where the flight attendant has stuff that you can buy when they walk up and down the aisles. The goodies are accessed and payment is handled through the Cargo app. And hopefully they sell some kind of odor neutralizer for when your driver has been a little too liberal with the air fresheners. Well Nissan Leaf is a lot of things, but a performance car is definitely not one of them, until now. Nissan is debuting the Nissan Leaf Nismo and it's more than just a fancy body kit and badges. Nissan says the Nismo is quicker than a standard leaf and it's handling characteristics should be more favorable to things to upgrade the shock absorbers, tires and bigger wheels. Cool right? Well, here's the big dissapointment you were expecting. It's only gonna be sold in Japan. Cue the sad trombone. Find more on these stories over at TheRoadShow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
