He says that the US, China, and the Middle East will be the largest markets for it. The decision hasn’t been made on how to build it to have the 600 horespower they plan for it, but they have V10 and V12 power plants that would work, but he says the V12 would be a bit heavy for an SUV and if you look at the hood you can see that a V12 would be too big in size for it. They also want the hybrid version of it to be the most fuel efficient SUV available

– Money, women, and brakes are never really important until you don’t have them. Performance Air-Hydraulic Systems & Bosch Hydro-Boost™ Kits http://www.powerbrakeservice.net
We build and Rebuild endless varieties of new and classic brakes for every type of vehicle and trailer. It started with George Sweeting as Power Brake Service in 1950 who worked for the railroads and Lockhead, then run by his son Bob Sweeting who learned about modifying cars while drag racing in the 60’s, and Bob’s son Matt Sweeting (who grew up in all of this) is now running SPE∑D, a company that designs and fabricates good looking and well working automotive products.
PBS was a Warehouse Distributor for Bendix for 20 years until they sold they sold their Power Brake Division to Bosch, which is when we became a special modification contractor with Bosch for their power brakes – which come on most new American vehicles. Our ability to design brake systems, rather than just replace rotors and pads, has taken us to amazing places and we have worked on amazing projects. We have:
Vacuum Brake – Conversions, Upgrades, and Modifications
Wilwood and Brembo Disc Brake Kits
Stainless Braided Hoses
Classic Car / Muscle Car Stock Brake Restoration and Rebuilding (Corvette, Camaro, Chevelle, Mustang, Ford & GM Truck, Mopar, Rolls Royce)
Light Truck / Medium Truck Hydro-Boost Replacement Parts and Conversions
Medium Truck / Heavy Truck Hydro-Max, Air brake, and Air-hydraulic systems – and Hydro-Max Conversions for the obsolete Delco Hypower
Conversions for the obsolete Buick Grand National, T-bird SC, Land Rover, Jeep and all other electric brake booster / electric powermasters
Modified brakes for Altered Bed Fleet Vehicles
Modified sensitivity for the Handicaped
Disc/Drum and Disc/Disc Proportioning Valves
We have worked on everything from propane powered trams to roller coasters, cranes, parade floats, multi engine street rods, classic european cars, double decker buses, and a Freightliner racing truck. Our favorite is working on big engine muscle cars that make too little vacuum and need more stopping power.
