Lexus LF-A Hybrid in the Works?

Posted by Joel
LeftlaneNews spy photographers have snapped a few photos of a Lexus LFA prototype. Since the Lexus LFA has been out for a while it's interesting that Lexus might be working on something new. The Lexus LFA prototype camouflage depicts fake panels especially in the front fender near the A-pillar. Normally when we see a piece of camouflage like this, it's often hiding a port of some kind. GM’s plug-in hybrid test mules have been spotted with a similar camo patch. Since Toyota/Lexus have been pioneers in hybrid technology it would be nice to have a hybrid sports car on the market.

So Long to a JDM Icon. Honda Ends Civic Type-R Production

Posted by Joel
Honda has been known for a couple things, it's performance super car the Acura NSX, the S2000 convertible and it's Type-R branded vehicles. I remember back in the days, ricer cars would put Type-R badges to feel special... But owning an actual Type-R was something special. You get suburb suspension, a high revving motor, and decent horsepower. Now Honda has confirmed that it is ending production of it's Honda Civic Type-R 4 door vehicle. The Civic Si is the closest thing we had to the Type-R since Integra. There's no word if another Civic Type R is in the works, especially with Honda's larger focus on hybrid cars taking up most of the research and development money.

2010 Bella Italia Ferrari DVD Update

Posted by Joel

Enzo Ferrari

KWIKFILMS has teamed up with the Ferrari Club of America San Diego Chapter to produce a DVD of the 2010 Bella Italia Car Show. We're very excited about this project. Who wouldn't want to produce a DVD featuring the hottest Italian exotic cars in Southern California.

All six hours of footage from the Panasonic HMC40 and the additional footage from Rob Buchanan's Canon 7D has been transferred to the Mac Pro. Now Frank needs to go over the footage... This is one of the most time consuming parts of the editing process. We're now in the process of scheduling appointments with Ferrari owners to be featured on the DVD.



Make sure to come back for more photos and trailers!

KWIKFILMS Coverage of the 3rd Annual Ceaser Chavez Day March

Posted by Frank
The San Diego & Imperial Counties Labor Council held the 3rd Annual Cesar Chavez Day March on March 31, 2010 at Spanish Landing Park, in San Diego CA. Marchers weaved their way through the San Diego airport, the County Administration Building, corporate buildings and banks downtown, ending the 4 mile walk with a rally at City Hall. The theme "Good Jobs, Local Jobs" reflected Cesar Chavez's message of fairness and equality. The march was very uplifting, hopeful and historical. Si se puede!
