    The last time the Detroit Three turned up at the Tokyo Motor Show was in 2007. One recession later, Jeep returns to Tokyo to represent the Motor City. Jeep will join Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Fiat on FCA Japan’s stand when the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show kicks off in late October, Automotive News reports. Jeep will also be sole representative for U.S.-born manufacturers, as Ford, General Motors and Tesla sit out of this year’s festivities. The off-road brand is currently No. 7 in import sales in the Japanese Domestic Market, having rose 21 percent to 2,298 units between January and April…

  • Report: Mitsubishi’s prepping to replace the Outlander Sport outright next year

    21 May 2015 | 2:20 pm
    For a split second, it almost appeared that Mitsubishi was going to be done for, at least as a competitive automaker in the US, given their lackluster performance both in sales and in their attempts to remain relevant, especially after killing the Evo. But now, Mitsubishi’s seeking to grab a piece of the cash cow that we all know is the crossover pie by replacing the aging Outlander Sport, outright. According to AutoExpress, who spoke with Mitsubishi Motors UK Managing Director, Lance Bradley, the new Outlander Sport will be launched next year. Not much is known, but Mitsu should be…

    Hyundai surprised everyone at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show earlier this year by bringing a new pickup truck concept to the table at the Cobo Center, to gauge interest and see if anyone would be interested in a Hyundai pickup. It turns out, there’s lots of interest, given that the midsize pickup segment is getting a reboot, thanks to some new entrants from General Motors in the form of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Toyota’s Tacoma also received a redesign while Nissan’s Frontier is next. And obviously, we’re still waiting to see what Ford has to say about this,…

    It may seem like the 2018 BMW 3-Series just came out but in reality, it’s actually been around for quite some time–a little over four years. That means we’re about half-way through through the F30’s generation lifespan of around eight years. That also means a new generation of 3-Series is on the way, and it just so happens CAR received the scoop on what to expect for the next-gen model, the G20 (we wonder if Infiniti will be knocking on their door about trademark infringement…).

    Everyone has their moment in Project Cars. Mine came during the Brands Hatch round of the Ginetta G40 Junior Cup, rounding Druids and watching a full field of 19 other Ginettas in an assortment of liveries tumble down the circuit’s iconic first corner, Paddock Hill Bend, at dusk. As a baseball fan, it reminded me of playing MLB The Show on PlayStation 4 for the very first time, beholding the immaculately-rendered new Yankee Stadium in all its grandeur, hearing the crisp roar and boom of the crowd with a depth and a fullness that no other sports simulation had ever matched before.

The 2019 Q8 and yet-to-be-named EV will help reinforce Audi’s place in the Chinese and U.S. auto markets, with the aim of beating BMW and keeping Mercedes-Benz at bay, Automotive News Europe reports.

    -What an odd duck the Indianapolis 500 is—embracing the latest in technology while steadfastly holding tight to traditions so old half the audience is unlikely to understand them without an explanation from a helpful pre-dementia graybeard.-Today, for example, was Carburetor Day, an hour of pre-race practice to allow mechanics to properly adjust the carburetors on the participating race cars. In 2000, bowing to the vernacular of the new century, it was shortened to “Carb Day.”-This, of course, despite the fact that the last two cars to use carburetors in the Indianapolis 500 were…

    The next-gen Porsche 911, due to be launched about four to five years from now, will most likely be available as a plug-in hybrid, according to sources familiar with the project. Internally called the 992, the fully redesigned model will be powered by turbocharged flat-six engines; four-cylinder models are possible, but an unlikely option.--The plug-in hybrid will draw from technologies developed for other Porsche models, such as the next-generation Panamera. It will allow Porsche to cut fuel consumption and emissions dramatically—maybe not so much in real life, but in the European…

Alert every 918 owner you know.-The problem has to do with the electric wiring harness for one of the car’s many radiator fans, which can chafe up against a carbon-fiber component in certain cases. Porsche says the fix will involve rerouting the wiring harness, and the production line has been updated with the fix so it shouldn’t affect the car from this point forward.---The Porsche 918…

Over the past few years, BMW has worked with traditional coachbuilders; this time around, the project was conceived and executed in-house. That’s entirely appropriate, as the design team under Adrian van Hooydonk and Karim Habib set out to recreate one of the brand’s icons: the 3.0 CSL, the famous “Batmobile,” based on the E9 3.0 CS/CSi and an incredibly successful racer well beyond its production run.-Painted in…

  • 10 Ways to Optimize Depreciation Management

    Dealer
    22 May 2015 | 9:55 am
    It has been said a fleet manager can do his or her job pretty well by managing just two costs associated with the provision of fleet vehicles: fuel (variable) and depreciation (fixed). Considering depreciation is more than half of fixed costs (fuel being the same for variable costs), this isn’t a far-fetched concept. Managing depreciation has been at — or near — the top of fleet managers’ cost control/reduction lists for a long time, and continues to be today. There are only two elements to depreciation: original cost and resale proceeds; however, there is much that happens in between…

It’s all the responsibility, with none of the compensation! Being a child of the 1980s, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that I have a bizarre fascination with the W126-body Sonderklasse, or as we know it today, the S-class.

Six years later, I found myself behind the wheel of the sixth-generation 2015 Legacy 2.5i Premium, which is all new for 2015 model year. As with the previous generation Legacy, all new Legacy models have standard all-wheel drive; the only transmission choice now available is a Continuously Variable automatic (CVT). With the base 4-cylinder motor, power is up 5 HP to 175 HP, and fuel economy has improved drastically to 26/36/30 MPG…

    Every time a Ford Mustang rolls into my driveway it feels like an old friend has come to visit. While I’ve never owned a Mustang, I’m reminded by all of the good times I’ve spent riding in pony cars and the great folks I’ve come to know along the way. So when the chance to test the 2015 Mustang GT appeared, there was no hesitation. After putting over ten thousand miles on Slambo (my 1999 Honda Civic HX fuel economy project car), I was more than ready to drive something with a healthy dose of horsepower under the hood. The 2015 Mustang is available with three engines:…

    4 Apr 2015 | 4:38 pm
    I’ve been waiting to test Ethanol Free Gasoline (E0) for eons, but I could never find a local service station that carries it. Blame it on the lawmakers. As it turns out, New Jersey state law stipulates that all of the gas sold here must contain ten percent ethanol. Thankfully, ethanol-free gas is sold on the other side of the Delaware River, fifty odd miles from home. I took Slambo for a ride today, to fill up with E0 for the first time. I intend to test it over a number of tanks. Proponents of ethanol-free gas claim a significant jump in fuel economy. Just how much is the big…

    Part of the tragedy of import cars of the ‘00s is that more likely than not, they’ll be associated to the infamous Fast & Furious franchise. While not the defacto ricer ride of choice, this is what happened while looking for pics for my B15 Nissan Sentra post: I found a screenshot of one from the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. If these type of cars cold talk, it would be the equivalent of finding an embarrassing snapshot of a time that’s yet to be looked upon with rose-tinted glasses.

But I will submit to you, gentle readers, that the reborn Pontiac GTO is truly emblematic of the resurgence in automotive performance that took place during this period. As Hafner notes, performance was stellar and for a really great price. The trouble was the styling; it aimed to bring back a hallowed nameplate but made not even an eyebrow raise, let alone a simple nod, to the…

  • Porsche Issues Recall For All 918 Spyder models!

    Bradley Brownell
    22 May 2015 | 6:33 pm
    Porsche's mega hyper super hybrid is being recalled globally for a service inspection. According to the recall release, Porsche will be asking each of the people who own 918 Spyders to bring their car in for precautionary checks of a potential issue. There are 223 cars in the United States market, and Porsche will need to see each and every one of them. So, what's the problem? Porsche has said that the 918s will be recalled due to a radiator fan wiring harness that could show some wear, thanks to a carbon fiber bit which is believed to be abrading the sheathing of the harness. When a 918…

The new sedan is rumored to be developed with two power-train systems at launch (both driven through the rear wheels), including a true plug-in electric version, and a hydrogen fuel cell electric version. Both are expected to launch in late 2017 or early 2018. This information was gleaned through a series of patent applications filed in various markets. This is a radical…

    We all know that Porsche isn't one to rest on their laurels, and with the Cayman GT4 having just launched a few weeks ago, there are already rumblings of a new 'GT' model. Apparently Porsche has applied for the trademark of the name "GT5" in Germany, and are unlikely to have that application turned down. The question on everyone's lips; What could the GT division possibly be cooking up? Something cheeky, I'm sure. There's been a GT1, there's been a GT2, we currently have the fifth GT3 iteration, and as of this year, there is a GT4. All of the bases are pretty well covered by the GT division,…

    If you're one of the 44,636 people who took delivery of a Macan in 2014, or one of the 50,000 Porsche expects to do so in 2015, then you already know it's worthy of the Porsche badge. But, do you know how it's made? Sure, Porsche showed us their owned gussied up video a couple of years ago featuring the production line in motion, but it was edited to an inch of its life for production values and brand positioning. The video below has none of that. In fact, some might say it's boring with its lack of voice-over and hi-speed driving. We think, if you're a Macan owner or fan, it's mesmerizing.

The invention of tires was the next great leap forward. Rubber tires allowed wheels to travel more smoothly on rough/uneven surfaces and at faster-than-walking pace without shaking themselves — and the cart or carriage or (eventually) car to which they were bolted to pieces. They also much improved traction — getting you going on slick/slippery surfaces, laterally (in the corners) as well as when you want to slow…

    22 May 2015 | 7:15 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Every new car launch is fraught with anticipation inside the walls of its maker. Odds are it will find a modicum of success, but there’s always the looming specter of it failing to rub the buying public the right way. And the following ten vehicles failed to connect with the public worse than any others manufactured after World War II. These are the vehicles that bellyflopped onto the market with a deafening “THUD,” seemingly superglued to the showroom floor, washed with nuclear reactor cooling water and finally hand-dried with Ebola-infested towels.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The BMW M4 (which, if you haven’t heard by now, is the new name for the 2-door M3) is a rootin’-tootin’ road machine, but the 435i on which it’s based isn’t exactly a pig either. Whether or not there’s a need for a model to slide in between the two is up for debate (For what it’s worth, they are separated by 125 horsepower and $17,950.), but BMW has gone ahead and created one anyway. Meet the 2016 BMW 435i ZHP Coupe Edition. The ZHP name is a callback to the ordering code for a special performance package that was available on U.S.-bound…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life If the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe isn’t muscular enough for your liking, you could always step up to the V12-powered S65 AMG Coupe. Of course, the S65 is rear-wheel-drive rather than all-wheel-drive (which is a potential dealbreaker for buyers living in snow-prone areas), plus it doesn’t look all that different from its V8-propelled sibling. With that in mind, why not opt for the cheaper S63 and use the money left over to make it faster and/or more distinctive? That’s what Mansory would like to see you do.

German Rosberg managed to break Hamilton’s run of poles and wins recently in Barcelona, but Ecclestone nonetheless told Bild newspaper: “Lewis is very dominant, taking up a lot of space in a team. “Nico has lost a lot on the track against Lewis — and therefore also the self-confidence,” the 84-year-old added.

Far more than a historic car rally, the Mille Miglia Storica is a virtual step back to the era of 1927 to 1957 when these racing cars roared across the Italian countryside and towns at the hands of such greats as Nuvolari, Marzotto, Biondetti, Caracciola and Moss.

    The first World Championship Formula 1 race of the modern era was staged May 13, 1950 at the Silverstone Circuit in Silverstone, England. Giuseppe “Nino” Farina won the Grand Prix of Europe with his Alfa Romeo Tipo 158 ‘Alfetta’ in convincing fashion. Alfa Romeo fielded a team of four “Alfetta” to the Silverstone track for the debut World Championship Formula 1 race in 1950.

    This week we attended the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA)’s panel discussion on the future of green vehicle technology, California’s Zero Emission Vehicle mandate, and mass-market adoption of these technologies. It was a terrific, fruitful discussion. Two 4-person panels brought together expertise and opinions from automakers, energy research groups, electric utilities, and state politicians as they discussed the industry’s current strategies and what needs to change to increase the desirability and sales of Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs).

  • Why Toyota Shouldn’t Build a New Sports Car

    tgriffith
    22 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I don’t think Toyota should build an inexpensive sports car. If you know anything about me, you know I’m a freak about sports cars. I clamor for rear-wheel-drive, manual-shift, great-handling coupes and roadsters. I was thrilled when the Subaru BRZ came out, and I’ve gushed about the new Porsche Boxster and basically all iterations of the classic 911. My brother-in-law races Miatas, and my father-in-law raced Porsches in his younger years. I love sports cars and everything they represent. There have been rumors that Toyota…

    Memorial Day weekend fast approaches. It’s a great time for new and used car shopping with summer just around the corner. More importantly, it’s an important time to recognize the military men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Some automotive manufacturers extend special discounts to military personnel (and sometimes retired veterans) that might be worth considering if you’re shopping for a new car. Check their websites to find the models you might want. (The website MilitaryRates.com has a list of companies offering discounts.) GM has had a program since…
  • Are Car Dealers the Cheapest for Car Maintenance?

    tgriffith
    21 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    I’ve grown up believing that the service department of a car dealership is the most expensive place to get your car repaired or serviced. I attribute that to my Dad, who taught me at a young age to always take my car to an independent repair shop to get the best price. I carried that belief into adulthood, and only now am I starting to realize that’s not always the best approach. To be fair to my Dad, maybe that was true 20 years ago. Maybe dealerships have realized they need to be competitive with other shops to keep customers coming back. Whatever the case, it’s time to…

    “What’s the best car I can buy?” The question pops up quite often at family gatherings, social events, in random Facebook messages, and anywhere people find out I write for a car blog. The answer is always the same. “The one that makes you happy.” Of course, people want more information than that. They want to be told which car offers the best value, best performance, best fuel economy, best reliability, and so on. Needless to say, there is no “best car money can buy.” There is a “best car for you.” Today we’ll look at the best car…

    Image Source It sounds like a tall tale, but oftentimes it’s the dreamers that really do take the world by storm. Headed by a man who owns the first private company to put a liquid-fueled rocket in space, Tesla Motors built a high performance fully electric vehicle off a patent from 1882. By next year they’ll be offering a slightly smaller complement for a medium-tier car price point.

    Image Source Over the last year, self-driving cars have moved from a distant dream to a beckoning reality. Though self-driving tech will be phased in incrementally, this year promises the first wave of automation, with a quarter of global auto sales expected to incorporate self-driving tech by the 2020’s. On the legislative side, four states and the District of Columbia allow self-driving car testing, and the undeclared legal status of self-driving cars in the remaining 46 states seems to hint at the fact that “it’s legal until it’s illegal.” Check out 10…
  • EcoBoost V6 Perfect for Ford GT

    Dustin Driver
    7 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    The EcoBoost V6 is perfect for the 2017 Ford GT. It doesn’t need a V8. The Ferrari-humiliating GT40 had a V8. First a 255 c.i., then a 298 c.i., then a colossal iron behemoth 427 c.i. V8 with more torque than the planet Saturn. You know why? Because those were the best engines Ford had back then. They were powerful, reliable, and made a wonderful noise. But today, Ford’s best engine is arguably the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s a technical tour de force. It makes 380 hp and 460 lbft in the Lincoln Navigator, for chrissake. It’s an engineering marvel. The thing has direct…

In the US, 2014 was the second year in a row in which it finally looked like we were out of the recession. Confidence seemed to be high, with U.S. auto inventory stockpiles at their highest levels since 2006, and the industry seems to have successfully adapted past the unfortunate bailouts of a decade before.

Inefficient, high-displacement engines flee in their wake, screaming in terror before the advancing army of forced-induction warriors! The big V8 is dying in a swirl of super-compressed and intercooled air. And Ford, one of the Grandaddies of the big V8, is heralding it’s demise.

    Vehicle safety and security should always be a top priority, but it is even more important for families with young children. Even the most minor of collisions can result in serious injuries to a child. It is the responsibility of car manufacturers to make sure that their products are as safe to drive as possible. This is why millions of pounds are spent every year on producing new security features and carrying out sophisticated hazard tests.

    After 350 hours of wind tunnel testing – often 24 hours a day – the new Camaro will slip more easily through the wind, and drivers of the Camaro SS will experience a marked improvement in reduced aerodynamic lift. These changes illustrate the lengths the aerodynamics team went to for improved performance, stability, cooling and lower wind noise intrusion “The importance of aerodynamics increases exponentially as we increase vehicle performance,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager. “As engine output increases, we need more engine cooling.

    Land Rover marked its 65th anniversary this April with the introduction of the Defender LXV special edition. Since its birth in 1948, Land Rover has developed from producing aluminum-clad work vehicles like the Series I to lavish luxury cars like the latest Range Rover Evoque. The Series I production cars, costing just £450 were clad in aluminum alloy owing to post-war Britain’s shortage of steel. This model sold 200,000 units in ten years, but was soon replaced by the Series II in 1958, which introduced selectable 4WD and a diesel engine. This was quickly followed by…

    The Mercedes-Benz CLA featuring street art design.Gone were the days when Mercedes-Benz used to be ridiculed as a manufacturer of a bunch of “old men’s cars.” In this age, the brand is now moving to younger buyers with its more affordable products featuring a mix of luxurious and stylish elements that cater to the preferences of a wider range of customers.

    The Polestar-tuned Volvo V40 Carbon was unveiled overnight, but the chances of ever seeing the car down under are next to zero. At the beginning of the month, the companies announced that it would soon be offering Polestar Performance Optimisation packages for models powered by Volvo’s Drive-E engine lineup. These Polestar upgrades, it was said, would focus on optimised engine performance, improved throttle and off-throttle response, and better gearshift speed and precision.

  • Five-cylinder Audi R8, Lamborghini Huracan a possibility – report

    Derek Fung
    22 May 2015 | 8:25 am
    Thanks to tax laws in China, the German car maker has considered engineering a five-cylinder version of its Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan supercars. Stephan Reil, head of engineering at Quattro, told Car and Driver that although no approval has been given for such a car and no engineering is currently under way, the possibility “has been talked about”. That’s because in March 2013 China began implementing an annual car taxation scheme based on engine capacity. The new tax really kicks in at nine percent for engines displacing 2.0 litres. From there it rises on a linear…

    Mad Max: Fury Road is seeing tremendous success at box offices around the world. And one particular element has hugely excited fans of the franchise – the return of the XB. I would have been about 10 when I first saw Mad Max. It was the cinematic choice of an older brother of a school friend, the grainy VHS providing both fear and excitement in spades. And while much of the plot and social nuances were lost on me, one thing was etched into my mind forever… The black-on-black Interceptor.   What a car! Menace, power and justice all rolled into one.

    For this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW left us speechless as it presented its new BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Concept, a vehicle that pays tribute to the iconic 3.0 CSL from the 1970s. For those who don’t know, “CSL” stands for “Coupe Sport Leichtbau” (coupe, sport, lightweight) and the 1970 BMW 3.0 CSL featured an aluminum bonnet, boot and wings, Plexiglas windows and equipment pared down to the bare essentials. Those features made the 3.0 CSL 200 kg lighter than its sibling model, the BMW 3.0 CS. If in 1970 the material of choice was…

    Launched in 2010, the Nissan Juke was an immediate hit with the public due to its quirky, individual style. The Juke is a supermini/SUV crossover that shook up the industry, forcing its rivals to start making similar styled smaller SUVs. It was redesigned in 2014 to freshen up its looks and make it more practical. They did this by making the boot bigger and adding more equipment. The Juke is great as it offers drivers the chance to own a crossover at an affordable price. It also makes for a fantastic cheap car leasing choice if you’re looking for a ride with individual style and loads of…

    Slinky. Sexy. Good looking. Curvaceous. Words once used to describe the better half of Abba are now used to describe Volvo cars. The D4 S60 stands tall in this list and A Wheel Thing gets reacquainted with the good looking Swede.Powersource. It’s a fuel efficient (4.2L/100 km, from a 67.5L tank) 2.0L diesel, with 133 kW (4250 rpm) and a torque figure that helps the acceleration (7.4 seconds to 100 km/h) of 400 Newton metres. What’s important about this is where it’s delivered: from 1750 to 2500 rpm. This gives almost unrivalled flexibility, safe overtaking and off the line,…

    If I were a better artist, I’d love to create a wordless book tracing the development of a road across from a single game trail to a modern superhighway. History is pretty fascinating, so let’s take a look at how road surfaces have changed over the millennia. I’ll just stick to road surfaces, as including the wheres and whys of roading would make this article far too long to read in one sitting. If you’ve ever seen a house where they park on the grass during winter, you soon see why. All that pressure and squelching soon becomes deep, thick mud, where wheels get bogged. Shortly after…

As an independent reviewer, A Wheel Thing survives on that support, so when a company offers up two new examples of their much respected Outback, to do a back to back review, that support is deeply appreciated.

Going into the weekend, my biggest concern was that I would have to run the same line. The Honda domination may have been apparent at Thruxton for the last four years, alas in 2015 their supremacy was not set to continue. But in this weekend filled with drama of the highest order, a new power is rising. Are we witnessing the rise of a new champion?

  • Why are Diesel Cars not Popular in the United States?

    Author
    16 May 2015 | 11:56 am
    Diesel cars have never come so far in the United States. While diesel-powered engines hummed and roared most of the streets of Europe not too long ago, and then axed all too suddenly by the government bearing the blame over air pollution since last year, diesel has never made a prominent mark in the American soil. Price Despite diesel’s greater torque and fuel economy, the fuel’s price per gallon is discouraging enough. Diesel in the US is more expensive than gasoline at the pump. This all started when US President Reagan imposed heavy taxes on diesel-powered trucks in 1981 due to…
  • What’s Up with Tadpole Multi-Wheeled Motorcycles?

    While seeing three-wheeled motorcycles with two wheels at the rear (Delta) is quite common, having two wheels at the front (Tadpole) is more extraordinary. In the past few years, the motorist world has seen various designs of three-wheeled motorcycles. Here we are looking at five models. But first, let us understand the advantages of the tadpole design over the delta. As per dynamic stability, the tadpole design offers safer reaction to quick turns and rapid steering. The two wheels at the front prevents the machine to tip over during sudden turns, and the issue with weight transfer and…

If drives require constant gear changes, drivers using manual transmission vehicles will definitely feel the pressure.

Electrics and hybrids that were touted as the next big thing to save at the pump and help the environment are losing their luster.

The camshaft’s lobes push on the lifters and pushrods, which move the rocker arms and open the valves.  Tools: Basic hand tools Gasket scraper Gasket set Small paint brushes Lint-free shop rags Carburettor cleaner…

    Jim Taylor
    27 Feb 2015 | 8:12 am
    The excitement of a brand new car has long tempted Americans to skip used models and find one that just rolled off the assembly line. While this might be exciting, it’s often not the best way to get an excellent price on a car, and it leaves a lot to be desired when comparing the long-term value of a vehicle. A gently used vehicle often gives buyers the same “new car” feeling, with a lower price tag, a quicker repayment period, and identical benefits to a car that hasn’t been previously owned. That’s especially true for eight specific makes and models that are…

    Getting your car serviced regularly is an important part of owning a vehicle. Servicing ensures that the car is running safely and at optimum performance. It identifies if any parts need to be replaced or are in danger of wearing out in the near future. When you purchase a car it will come with a manual that lays out the appropriate schedule of servicing for your vehicle. For the best results, it is recommended that you stick to this schedule, but you do have a choice about who does your service: the manufacturer (or their registered dealerships) or an independent mechanic.

    Many car experts consider the Camshaft as the “brain” of the engine. A camshaft’s primary function is to open and close the engine valves, via the lifters and rocker arms, in time to the piston’s position in the cylinder. This causes the engine to take in air, burn fuel and expel exhaust gases. The camshaft spins at twice the sped of the crankshaft. The camshaft’s lobes push on the lifters and pushrods, which move the rocker arms and open the valves.  Tools: Basic hand tools Gasket scraper Gasket set Small paint brushes Lint-free shop rags Carburettor cleaner…

One of the driving forces behind the legendary Suzuki Katana, it is a lesser known fact that Herr Muth is also the designer behind the BMW R90S of the mid 70s. Built to throw off the idea that BMW built only plaid boring motorcycles, the sporting German machine was given both mechanical and aesthetic upgrades to make it stand out from the vanilla BMW bikes of the period. Packing 67hp, and the ability to reach 200kmh, this is definitely one motorcycle that had BMW thinking outside the box. Today’s bike comes from Australia, an incredibly clean barn…

    The 2015 Subaru WRX is a car everyone wants. Turbocharged four-cylinder engine is all you need for a lightweight powerhouse. Its handling is heavenly and with its fitted 12.4-inch vented rotors, two-piston calipers in the front, and 11.3-inch solid rotors with single-piston calipers in the back, brake fade is not a problem. From the brakes to the engine, the WRX’s engine doesn’t growl as loud. I personally love to hear the roar of an engine, and for me this car is best for that.

    While attempting to dodge all of the potholes this winter, you may have caused some damage to your alignment. Wheel alignment is an important part of car care. Poor tire alignment may decrease your miles per gallon and wear out your tires quickly. But how do you know when it’s time to get your wheel aligned? Drifting. If you notice that your car is pulling to the right or left when you are trying to drive straight, then it is probably time for an alignment. Properly aligned tires drive straight and true, along with your steer wheel. Unevenness. If your front and back tires have…

Here are some tips to keep you out of harm’s way: In bad weather, remember to take it slow — even if you’re in a rush. You should never tailgate, but it becomes even more dangerous when ice is involved. Leave extra space between you and the vehicle ahead of you. In an emergency, hit the brakes fast and hard. With anti-lock and ABS brakes, pumping the brakes is no longer…

    Might want to look for a drive thru next time… When a person owns or operates a high performance car like a Porsche 911 Carrera, it’s always best to be familiar with the controls before heading out on the road.  Actually, that applies for all vehicles.  Unfortunately, even though it seems like common sense, accidents like these happen all too often. Since applying the brakes would be the way to prevent colliding with a coffee shop storefront, it would be safe to assume the driver was mistaken about which pedal they were pressing.  Both the driver and passenger were treated for…

    While this 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray hasn’t retained man of its original parts, but at one point it did derive from an actual Chevrolet dealership.  Sticker price at $55,000, it was a 460 hp sports car that hit 60 mph in a quick 3.8 seconds. The quarter mile was eclipsed in 12 seconds flat. And even today, these figures seem unrealistic. That is due to his C7 being transformed into an Outlaw 10.5 drag racer. With its 3,500 hp on tap, props going to a giant screw-type supercharger, this car is hands down the fastest C7 Stingray out their. The transformation from production C7 began in…

This is a tough tyre from Japanese manufacturer Yokohama, and as with lots of their products, it is very good for the job it does. It has a softer ‘V’ directional tread pattern than others you may find, and this is why it has great levels of wet and dry grip, but with low road noise and a comfortable ride. All sounds good so far, but is there a catch? It is a very good tyre, not lots of sizes and availability is somewhat limited, but they are out there.  The lifespan of…

    The high initial costs and potential maintenance and servicing bills make commercial vehicles a significant investment for all SMEs. The problem is that they’re crucial to the way modern supply chains operate so it’s essential that you’re able to finance them securely. Since buying outright or taking out risky loans can potentially damage your business, consider leasing the vehicle instead. How Does It Work? Leasing vehicles is very similar to renting them, except that rather than entering into a contract for just a few weeks a leasing agreement generally works over 24-60 months. You…

    Plate-Trader
    22 Apr 2015 | 3:43 pm
    When you decide to sell a number plate, you have two main options. OPTION 1 Sell Through A Number Plate Dealer Number plate dealers are like estate agents in that they act as a middlemen between yourself and the buyer.

    7 Mar 2015 | 2:38 pm
    The Government seems to always be telling us that they’re short of money, so anyone whose reg is held on a retention certificate and not on a vehicle may have been looking nervously at the yearly renewal fee of £25. That fee has not changed since its introduction, back when the railways ran on steam, a pint cost 20p and a brand new Mini was just £600. In that time, the price of that British motoring icon has increased more than twenty-fold. Monday the 9th of March 2015 marks the long-awaited change in the fee, to…..   (drumroll please)   £0, nothing, zilch,…

  • Watch an Audi R8 give birth to the new RS3 Sportback, literally

    George Skentzos
    30 Apr 2015 | 4:04 pm
    We get the symbolism behind Audi’s new promotional spot for its newest performance car, but in practice the sight of an Audi R8 giving birth to the new Audi RS3 Sportback might just be one of the strangest things we’ve ever seen this side of a Russian dashcam video. The clip itself is disturbingly well done and is much what we’d imagine the birth of a Transformer would look like had Michael Bay decided to go down that path.
  • BMW X5 driver brake checks a 40-tonne truck

    George Skentzos
    30 Apr 2015 | 3:57 pm
    Brake checking on a highway is a bad idea even at the best of times, let alone when the vehicle you are checking is a 40-tonne truck. The driver of the BMW X5 in this clip obviously has some sort of beef with the truck driver in this clip, as he speeds in front before slamming on the brakes not once but a handful of times. Good thing the truckie has the whole incident recorded on dashcam or it might have been too unbelievable to explain that the BMW X5 driver took on a 40-tonne truck on purpose.

    It seems you don’t need to see Furious 7 in theatres to see Paul Walker’s emotional send off in what has tragically become his final film in the epic Fast & Furious saga. The official music video See You Again by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth contains the homage to the late Paul Walker almost in its entirety. It offers up a somber moment for fans of the series as well as the cast who are not only saying goodbye to a character but also a close friend. The Toyota Supra features in the montage is actually part of Paul Walker’s own private collection which also includes…

    3 Mar 2015 | 2:36 pm
    With Land Rover having officially confirmed the arrival of the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible many are up in arms about the controversial decision to introduce a drop-top model in the premium compact SUV segment – or any SUV segment for that matter. While the Range Rover Evoque Convertible has already made its debut in concept form, we thought we’d apply it to the newly unveiled 2016 model year Evoque – and the results are promising. So is the introduction of a Range Rover Evoque Convertible a good move from Land Rover? You be the judge.

    2 Mar 2015 | 6:36 pm
    Lamborghini has unleashed its most brutal road-going model yet – the new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Super Veloce. As its name would suggest, the 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine in the Aventador SV is now producing 750hp – or 560kW to you and I – along with a huge 690Nm lump of torque. The Aventador SV also drops 50kg from its already lean mass resulting in an incredible 2.03kg/hp power-to-weight ratio, dropping the sprint from 0 to 100km/h to just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of more than 350km/h. As you can imagine, much of this weight loss is thanks to a more…

  • Beginners Guide to Radiator Flushes

    Jake Jensen
    16 Feb 2015 | 3:10 pm
    What is the Radiator? The radiator is one of those parts of your car that works quietly away without you every noticing…until it breaks, and then you really notice. This reservoir holds water and antifreeze to help keep your engine in tip-top condition. Engines create a ton of heat when they operate (and friction, but that’s a whole other issue), and that heat can quickly destroy them unless it’s cooled down. Enter the radiator, which draw heat away from your engine and protects your car from other temperature-related problems, like freezing during an especially cold night…

The first and most obvious reason that you should service your new car at a dealership is that it has a warranty. The chances are that you might have a niggling problem or two that you want resolved and from a convenience standpoint, it makes sense to have your maintenance done at the same time.

A full carbon fiber aero package, lightweight wheels, and requisite badging round out the package. Even the stripe adds horsepower! (No, it doesn’t.)

What kind of Corvette do you want—chrome bumpers versus rubber? Coupe or convertible? How solid is the “Birdcage?” How’s the fiberglass? And more importantly, how much do you want to spend?

  • Stripped-out C4 Corvette-Kart takes on Lingenfelter C7 Corvette

    19 May 2015 | 5:22 pm
    Four years ago, the boys at Hot Rod ripped off the fiberglass from a 1985 Corvette and shaved 900 pounds off the weight. Naturally, the result went faster, stopped quicker, and handled better. This time, they’ve taken that winning formula and bolted a cage onto what’s left, on top of a 350-horsepower small-block. It’s a Corvette Kart. Then, they faced a Lingenfelter-tuned C7 with 640 horsepower on a racetrack. What wins, lightness or sheer power? Well, at least one of them can go off-road.   The post Stripped-out C4 Corvette-Kart takes on Lingenfelter C7 Corvette appeared first…

    Renault didn’t exactly make a dent in the Indian automobile market immediately. It took a few hits and made a few mistakes. The French carmaker turned things around with the launch of the Duster SUV. The vehicle was an immediate success, and Renault was taken seriously as a competitor henceforth. Renault now wants to conquer the small car segment. It is targeting Hyundai and Marutis entry-level offerings. It has developed a small car, with a SUVish feel. The Kwid looks like an SUV, and has borrowed a lot from its elder brother`s design flow. The big grille (without chrome though) and huge…

    Just like skiers and snowboarders, rarely do motorcycle riders and scooter riders swap vehicles and hang out together. In fact, most motorcyclists don’t have much respect for the scooter ilk, largely because of the rather noticeable lack of power, the absence of any real skills and that awful “Good Thing” music video from Fine Young Cannibals with the emasculating scooter gang front and center.

    Innovation is a truly beautiful thing, and there’s no better place to prove it than the auto industry. With today’s cookie-cutter midsize sedans and crossovers, however, it may seem like designers have abandoned their imaginations. The thing is, auto designers have to exercise a certain amount of caution when including new ideas. Sometimes the public isn’t ready for them. Sometimes the technology simply doesn’t exist yet. Sometimes, the idea is just poorly executed. Here’s a few examples of cars that changed the face of motoring just a few years too early.

It felt like everyone I knew had not only gotten their permit, but moved on from chauffeuring their parents around and gotten their license. Every single after-school activity seemed to be predicated on car ownership. Friends within walking distance were forever scheduling events that were at least a 20-minute drive away. It wasn’t fair. I had waited long enough. I was ready to drive. Picture may or may not be me.   I’m old enough…

A market research study in the US revealed that 84 percent of car customers consider a car’s fuel economy when making a purchase.
