Forget final destination, the survivors live on. There’s no plan other than coincidence, which requires a million things to be in line before someone can cheat death and return from the gates of the other world.I also emphasize that these videos teach us a great lesson. These are real situations. Most accidents come with unwanted consequences and not everyone is so fortunate. So, please learn from these miniclips and follow the traffic…

  • Spotlight: Road&Track gets a peak at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata engine assembly line

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:24 pm
    Lamborghini was once a small Italian luxury and supercar automaker that churned its cars out from a bunch of wooden shacks. But ever since they upped their game, especially with the help of Volkswagen AG, who acquired the brand in 1998, Lamborghini has since morphed into one seriously tip-top operation. For instance, just look at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata engine factory, where Road&Track got a sneak peak at what goes on behind those closed doors. Head on over to Road&Track to check out the feature.

  • Honda S660 roadster launches in Japan this week

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:08 pm
    In an age when the United States is, at long last and after much pining, receiving some of Europe and Asia’s best performance vehicles – the brand new Focus RS springs immediately to mind – consistently being denied fun Hondas seems like an injustice that will never, ever be set right. As if not getting the bonkers Civic Type R wasn’t punishment enough, this week Japan (and Japan only) will see the launch of the S660, the company’s spiritual successor to the iconic Beat, as well of a long line of tiny roadsters dating all the way back to the S800 of the sixties. What are we missing?
  • Report: Bentley to reveal a new hard-edged rear-wheel drive sports coupe next year

    30 Mar 2015 | 6:57 am
    AutoCar reports Bentley is going to reveal a new high-performance rear-wheel drive sports coupe next year. The new sports car is said to be based off of the Continental GT, rather than the new EXP-10 Speed Six Concept from Geneva. That could only mean the Continental GT3-R is most likely going to be the starting point for the news model. However, unlike the GT3-R, which is all-wheel drive, the new one will be rear-wheel drive only. Go-power should be provided by a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 with power rated at around 572hp while weighing in just 440lbs lighter than the GT3-R. Production is…
  • Meet the most luxurious Range Rover money can buy – The SVAutobiography

    Land Rover’s very excited about their new SVO operations with Jaguar, or Special Vehicle Operations. And this latest Range Rover is proof of that. Meet the most luxurious Range Rover money can now buy: the SVAutobiography. If that name sounds slightly familiar, it’s because the Range Rover often featured a gussied up version also known as the Autobiography model. Think of this new SVAutobiography model as a successor, but from J-LR’s new SVO team. With a price starting at $199,495, you’d hope it would be the most luxurious Range Rover ever. And that’s a lot more…

    Audi enthusiasts site, Fourtitude, reports that Audi could be bringing an RS3 sedan to our shores, which sounds like they’re just making the S4 completely pointless from a performance standpoint. According to the report, Audi of America employees gathered in Maryland for a meeting, where sources were able to provide some hints at to this possibility. Should this happen, the RS3 sedan would use the European hatch’s 2.5L turbocharged five-banger with around 367hp and 324 lb-ft of twist. Sitting in the transaxle is a seven-speed automatic with quattro all-wheel drive. The estimated…

  • Next Chevrolet Camaro Loses 200 Lbs In Time For Summer

    Derek Kreindler
    30 Mar 2015 | 3:01 pm
      The next Chevrolet Camaro is set to lose 200 lbs thanks to a variety of light weighting techniques. While a Chevrolet press release provided a number of granular details (ooh, a new dashboard support beam saves 9 lbs!!), the real savings likely come from a move to the newer, smaller and lighter Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS, rather than the Zeta platform meant for full-sized Holdens. Based on current curb weights, the newest, lightest Camaro probably checks in at around 3,500 lbs. We’ll know the full story on may 16th when the new Camaro makes its debut. The post…
  • Honda S660, The Mid-Engine Honda We’ve Been Waiting For

    Derek Kreindler
    30 Mar 2015 | 2:57 pm
    While the whole world waited for the next Acura NSX, Honda quietly went about preparing an entirely different kind of mid-engine sports car for its home market. The S660 will be about the size of the original Beat, largely since it must confirm to Japanese regulations for kei-cars. This means that it’s going to be small. Not Miata small, but original Lotus Elan small. Underneath, a 660cc turbocharged triple making 63 horsepower is as much as Honda can legally get away with while staying in bounds for kei-car status. A CVT or a 6-speed manual (with an S2000 style shift knob) are the…

The answer is, in fact, my Grandmother’s 1999 Honda Civic, which she traded in for a Honda Fit LX. Inflation adjusted, her Civic costs about $21,676 in today’s Canadian dollars. Her Fit would have cost her $2,000 less back in 1999, or about what a Civic DX, which had no air conditioning or an automatic gearbox, would have commanded. That same $14,000 is about twice the price…

    24 Mar 2015 | 9:15 am
    Released in 1975, the Porsche 930 Turbo would spark the imagination and dreams of many including our friend Magnus Walker. After collecting several early Turbos and still in need of the holy grail – a first year 1975 model, he turned to the folks at Autohaus Hamilton in Australia to help him acquire 1 of 15 right hand drive examples. We met up with Magnus in the canyons, along with the current 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo, to see just how much has changed in the last 40 years for this iconic car.

However, what about a car collection, could that be considered art? I am one who believes that a car can be art, in addition, so can a car collection. Nestled away in cloudy Washington State is a small warehouse containing the collection of Peter Gleeson. It is a work of art. Mr. Gleeson was kind enough to invite the Puget Sound Region of the BMW Club of America to have a look around his garage. While many people may be aware of the Gleeson collection for its…

That’s why they’re popular with people whose automotive priorities are slightly different from ours. In fact, they’re so popular that the Terrain has managed to become the number-two seller for GMC, second only to the Sierra full-size pickup. READ MORE ››-

Yet since it threw itself full tilt into building road cars as McLaren Automotive in 2011—there was the indelible F1 a couple of decades back, of course—it has existed in a sort of gauzy haze, largely unknown and irrelevant to mere mortals.

The long-wheelbase, twelve-cylinder S-class for the most discriminating of sybarites is whisper-quiet, will launch you to 80 mph before you’ve even noticed, and remains fundamentally unperturbed as it mows down the proletariat—its Magic Body Control reducing the thwump of the wheels over their limbs to the inconvenience of a mere road-surface imperfection.

  • Diesel Fuel Prices Drop While Gasoline Goes Up

    Jesse Sokolow
    26 Mar 2015 | 10:55 am
    In a year marked mostly by significant decreases in fuel prices, motorists have been paying more at the pump in the past few weeks, although prices still remain significantly lower than they were a year ago. Diesel prices are lower this week, with the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel at $2.864, $0.053 less than a week ago, and $1.124 lower than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline increased from a low of $2.03 on Jan. 25 to $2.457 this week. That number is $0.004 more than the price last week,…

    The diesel-powered version of the BMW X5 BMW announced the introduction of the BMW X5 xDrive40e. The plug-in hybrid is the company’s first in the SUV category and is capable of 55 MPGe, or miles per gallon equivalent, the measurement used by the EPA to compare the energy consumption of alternative fuel vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles with the fuel economy of conventional vehicles. The X5 xDrive40e features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and powered by a lithium-ion battery that is integrated into its eight-speed automatic transmission.

    OK, class, please pay attention now. The new Golf SportWagen, which is known as the Golf Variant in its home market and the Golf Estate in the United Kingdom – and was previously called the Jetta SportWagen in the States – is now available for your driving pleasure. Got that? Given how much fun the Golf is to drive, even lacking wood paneling, we were optimistic about the SportWagen and weren’t disappointed. It comes with tons of cargo space, a fuel-sipping diesel engine, and is available with a manual transmission option. As often reported in The Diesel Driver, 80% of buyers of the…

    20 Feb 2015 | 7:10 am
    Apple, notorious for being one of the most secretive tech companies, may be planning to build an electric vehicle that would become available by the year 2020. The veil of secrecy was pierced last week when the Wall Street Journal ran a story about Project Titan, an EV project that hundreds of Apple employees are working on. Since then, news of Apple’s recruitment of automotive industry experts has surfaced and, according to a court filing, electric-car battery maker A123 systems sued the computer company for poaching some of its top engineers with the goal of possibly creating a battery…

  • Telematics, The Connected Service Department, and The Future of Fixed Operations – The Impact of Technology

    Gary Kalk

    The number of mobile technology devices now exceed the number of people globally, and 75% of vehicles are projected to be connected by 2020. With new car ownership lifecycles being extended, defection to independent repair facilities remain a pain point to dealerships looking to drive customer retention. In response, the service department has the potential to transform itself to meet the changing expectations of new buyers. Millenials consider in-vehicle telematics essential and dealerships across the continent are recognizing the opportunity that technology adoption in the service…

    Managing Talent, from Shop Owner. Are you working on your business or in it? This is a question that I challenge every automotive service center owner and manager to seriously consider. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a repair shop only to find the manager on duty in the service bays, tools in hand, working on a customer’s car. All the while, key business processes and customers and vendors and employees are neglected. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the dynamics of the service center, and I know that sometimes everyone needs to roll up their sleeves and help out.

    Avoiding a Supplies Surprise, from Autonet. The relationship between the supplier and repairer is an important part of the repair process because having the replacement component is key to getting the job done right and within the allocated time. The process that occurs when you take your car to get fixed is somewhat of a mystery to some people. Most of us don’t see beyond the service counter, simply because the repair area is in another room and all that is noticeable are the magazines and refreshments. Once the problem with your vehicle has been confirmed, usually some sort of part…

    This is the weekly series where you, the Autosavant commentariat, are invited to take the reins of the auto industry, for at least as long as it takes you to write a comment. It’s all the responsibility, with none of the compensation! I grew up in a household which, by and large, respected the value of the new car. We bought whatever had a warranty, and when the warranty ran out, it was time to start shopping again. “You aren’t buying someone else’s problems,” we were told. “You don’t have to worry about reliability,” others said. Never mind the fact that a couple of our new…

    1 Nov 2014 | 10:55 am
    Toyota’s Scion sub-brand has been struggling since the auto market crashed during the Great Recession.  Sales are about a quarter of their pre-recession peak, and the best-selling Scion model, the tC, had fewer sales (19,094) during 2013 than did the slowest-selling Toyota car model (Yaris, 21,342).  Members of the inaugural Scion buyer demographic class (those who were 22 years old in 2002) are now in their thirties with children, families, and better jobs, and don’t want a brash, quirky car.  Scion’s buyers have grown up, and the brand must grow up with them.  We spent…

    It happens when you’re in the middle of nowhere. Or in the middle of the city. A warning light flashes on your dashboard, urging you to CHECK ENGINE. It immediately strikes fear in the heart, a fear of the unknown. A sense of panic sets in. Your significant other is rattled, “what’s wrong with the car now,” they ask with trepidation. You feel an impulsive need to drive immediately to a dealership to find out what’s wrong. The seed has been planted: it’s a money tree and you’re about to fertilize it with your bank account.

    Turbocharging allows a small displacement engine to achieve significantly higher levels of horsepower (HP) and torque on demand, while delivering more miles per gallon (MPG) in light-load conditions. Once thought of purely from a performance perspective, forced induction technology has become a cornerstone of the march to higher fuel efficiency. You can have your cake and eat it too.

  • Valvoline Launches Full Synthetic High Mileage Oil

    24 Feb 2015 | 1:44 pm
    Every gear head knows that synthetic motor oils deliver a higher level of protection than conventional oils, but the high-tech slippery stuff has a downside when it comes to older engines. Quite simply, it’s just too slippery. A well-worn engine will burn more full synthetic oil due to leaks. That’s why the oil manufacturers initially used conventional oil or synthetic blends in high mileage products, including Quaker State Defy and Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic Blend. There’s a trend underway to replace the blends with specially formulated full synthetic oils, like Mobil 1 High Mileage…

But being born five years before 1962, few if any of them meet the requirements for my own Fantasy Garage Challenge. One of the best car movies of all time is "American Graffiti," set in the year 1962. After all, car-wise, 1962 was also A Very Good Year as well.

    Porsche has a habit of introducing new variations of a particular model as they are on the way out. These are normally a version of the base car with some additional features/options thrown in for value and aesthetics. It gets buyers into the showroom to pick-up a car that might otherwise sit and languish while buyers wait for the new version. The three new Panamera models announced last night are a great example of this strategy. Introducing the Panamera Edition, the Panamera 4 Edition and the Panamera Diesel Edition 4 (not available in China or the U.S.). Later in the week, at the New York…

No other manufacturer has done this before leaving Porsche alone in its class. As if all that weren't enough, Porsche made a final statement by laying down the fastest lap-times with the two 919 Hybrids ending in 1-2, nearly a full half second fast then…

    We’ll admit it: the last edition of the $5,000 challenge scraped the bottom of the barrel in trying to dig up interesting offerings.

Discounted advertising on cars in this price point helps, too, so the selection of cars in this edition should appeal to a broader audience.

    Are the Las Vegas carspotting scenes we run – like these two, courtesy Vintage Las Vegas – as representational of what Americans drove at the time as any of the rest of the carspotting scenes? After all, Las Vegas is a destination, a place where people went on vacation, a place that attracted a certain demographic. We’re more likely to see carspotting scenes at the glitzy casinos and resorts rather than at the Las Vegas grocery stores. Then again, even Las Vegas and that certain demographic were part of the entire American landscape, so while these photos aren’t…

  • New Kia Carnival: 4-Star Shock - ANCAP Warns Against Pre-empting Test Results

    31 Mar 2015 | 10:40 am
    Kia’s new Carnival has been awarded the less than ideal 4-Star ANCAP safety rating the company had been anticipating, but not entirely for the reasons it had expected. Speaking at the Australian launch of the new Carnival in February, Kia communications boss Kevin Hepworth said that missing out on a top 5-Star rating was understood to be the result of a misinterpreted requirement on the fitment of seatbelt alerts. Mr Hepworth said that production changes were already underway, and th... Read more The Motor Report is Australia's fastest growing auto website. Click through to read the…

Musk took to Twitter to make the announcement, but has left few clues to the new unveiling besides the declaration that it isn’t a car. This rules out the Tesla Model X SUV, which was originally believed to begin production in the US summer after a series of delays.

The McLaren P1, like the rival hybrid hypercars from Ferrari and Porsche, is touted as being a sensible speed machine, one that’s just as capable of put-putting down to the local bodega under battery power as it is unleashing holy hell upon a racetrack. But is that really the case? Chris Harris managed to borrow a P1 from McLaren for a few days to find out. Yes, he wrung it out on the track, drag raced it against an Audi RS6 Avant and did some other typical Harris Monkey activities, but he also used it like a normal…

Dearborn tried much the same thing with Mercury and, well, that story didn’t have a particularly happy ending (neither the regular kind nor the down-by-the-freeway massage parlor kind).

However, we are now at a major juncture as consumer technology is finally crossing over into watchmaking. As such, it’s always interesting to see which direction new companies sway as they enter the marketplace.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Back in the early 1990s, Honda produced two lustworthy mid-engined sports cars: The Ferrari-baiting NSX (which was sold here as an Acura), and the pipsqueak kei class Japan-only Beat roadster. Jump ahead to the present day and the company is putting the finishing touches on a brand new turbocharged and hybridized NSX; how cool would it be if Honda was making a new Beat to accompany it? Well, it turns out it is. The 2016 Honda S660, like the O.G. Midship Amusement machine, is designed to conform to the Japanese government’s kei car regulations. That means…

As we’ve seen in numerous EVs and hybrids, capturing energy that would otherwise be lost while driving is accomplished through regenerative braking or systems can harness energy when the vehicle is coasting.

    The mile markers fly by, one every 100 seconds or so. Adrenaline rushes through your body as quickly as the wind passes through your hair. You know you’re breaking the law, but you want to see how long you can get away with it. The rumble of the gas-fueled engine growls under the hood, and you can feel the sound in your chest as you push the accelerator pedal a little deeper into the floor. No, the car isn’t stolen, and you’re not a suspect escaping from a grisly crime. You’re just driving. And driving is illegal. Tesla CEO Elon Musk thinks this could happen. He…

  • 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…
  • The 10 Most Profitable Car Companies of 2014

    6 Mar 2015 | 7:57 pm
    Image Source As providers of big ticket items, the health of the auto industry is largely a predictor of the health of the economy as a whole. 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. Cars made today are the most durable they’ve been in over a decade, with an average age of light vehicles improving to 11.4 years in the…

    Behold! They cometh with four and six cylinders, turbochargers and direct injection! Wielding monstrous power-to-weight ratios and fiendish specific output numbers! 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. Sure, they have the Coyote, but they’ve sent a very clear message with the GT, the turbo Mustang, and now the Focus RS. Turbos are in.
  • My Midlife Crisis, or Adventures in Audi Maintenance

    14 Jan 2015 | 6:25 pm
    Sure, it’s not really that bad as midlife crises go. I mean, yes, when I hit midlife I did switch jobs three times and got divorced, but that’s more the result of a constant and chronic whole-life crisis, not one of the midlife variety. No, my midlife crisis was automotive. My vehicular partners have all been Japanese and reliable and, literally, colorless (silver, beige, white, black, gray). I had owned my 2003 Mazda Protégé 5 for 10 long years. It was a fun, zippy, practical, economical car that could really do anything. But at 37 something snapped and I decided I needed more…
  • 10 Reasons Why Classic Cars are the Best Collectible Investment

And if you have the cash to spare, you should have one. But it turns out there’s another more tangible reason to buy a classic car, they’re rapidly appreciating. According to a report by Douglas Ellison and Knight Frank, while traditional collectible investments like watches, art, and coins have appreciated some, (with appreciations of 3%, 5% and 10% in the last 12 months,…

My initial reaction was that i got amazed at the change of design from normal tradition cars, i always had a notion of how a car design needs to be and how a car needs to move. But Toyota i-Road completely broke my perception about cars in general, i always believed a car needs to look like every other car on road and needs a bit more space on road to move safely but in reality the city roads…

    Winter weather has been ravaging much of the nation's snow states and some of us are STILL shoveling snow off our driveways, so it might seem odd to be asked "When's the last time you washed your car?" If you're still wearing your winter parka, getting a car wash may not be the first thing on your mind, but remember, without regular removal, road salt can cause corrosion and rust, ruin paint, and wreak havoc on your car's undercarriage. If your daily travels take you through saline-snowy streets, it's important that you protect your vehicle from the ravages of road salt. And you beach people…

    Another day, another spy shot of a fast car testing at the famous Nurburgring racetrack. This time, Mercedes-Benz has been spotted testing a more powerful version of their already potent AMG GT supercar. Could this be the future Black Series version of the AMG GT? It’s no secret that the AMG GT is squarely aimed at the Porsche 911. This inherently means that Mercedes-Benz will most likely build different variations of the AMG GT to compete with the vast amount of 911 variations, albeit probably not as many. The recently photographed AMG GT prototype is presumably the competitor for the…

Obviously, without the aid of a thoroughly sorted open class rally car with 6-inch diameter piping creating more torque than a windmill, little kids aren’t going to be able to do smokey 720-degree burnouts. However, the real issue here is car control – you either have it or you don’t.

According to Bentley’s head of engineering, Rolf Frech, the upcoming GT3-R-like Continental will have a rear-wheel-drive layout and be lighter than the original model."A lot of people expected the GT3-R to be a proper rear-wheel-drive sports car," Frech told Autocar, "but the problem was timing.

    Jim Glickenhaus’ incredible SCG 003 supercar made its highly anticipated debut at this weekend’s VLN race at the Nurburgring, but the event didn’t go as planned for the Scuderia’s duo of Ferrari-based racers. That’s because both cars were black-flagged due to... exceeding the race noise regulations. In short, they were too loud for the ’Ring, if that makes any sense. The SCGs, which had been entered in the newly created SPX Class, were running 6th and 18th overall before the black flag forced them into the pits.Unfortunately, that’s far from being the…
  • McLaren 650S Spider With Armytrix Performance Exhaust Makes Some Noise: Video

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    Even though the McLaren 650S has enough grunt to go head-to-head with million-dollar hypercars, its exhaust sound has always been a bit too mild for some, mainly because the two turbochargers muffle the sound coming from the 3.8-liter V-8. This is what usually happens with cars that use a smallish engine with a lot of boost, but exhaust manufacturer Armytrix has devised a solution for this problem: a valve-controlled titanium exhaust system with three operating modes.Known car-spotter Shmee150 recently filmed a 650S Spider fitted with an Armytrix exhaust system, and the resulting sound is…

  • Diesel - V6 Gas?

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:54 pm
    I am about to pull-the-plug on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with the off-road adventure II package. All is worked out but I vacillate between the V6 Gas and the eco-diesel. Inherently I like the diesel because of the heavier duty transmission, towing (I have a waterski boat at 4000#) and I just like the feel of the extra torque. The negatives are the price but mostly my concern is all the problems that I have read about the 2014 Diesel. I would like to hear from the 2015 GC eco-diesel owners: happy with your choice, problem-free? Convince me! Thanks :D

Probably not even a comparison between the two as far as quality and materials. I believe they are owned by TaTa (an Indian company). I did however go and check one out last week to satisfy my own curiosity. From what I saw, what beautiful vehicle! Didn't test-drive it but I may have to go back and do so. 2. Yeah, I…

  • The 2014 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi review

    9 May 2014 | 9:48 am
    The Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi has been tested by car experts and has received some rave reviews. For £19,930 for the Tech Line model, we think it’s a pretty good deal. Coming with a new 1.6 CDTi engine which emits just 97g/km of C02 and 76.3 mpg, it is an extremely economical type of car. This new model is seen as somewhat as the saviour of the Vauxhall Astra, helping it to elevate the car to next level. In previous years the car has been let down by it’s poor engines, running costs and poor interior designs. Reaching a maximum speed of 108 BHP, it is not the fastest,…

    13 Mar 2015 | 7:24 am
    Spark plugs are another excellent candidate for DIY replacement, with the metal inevitably burning out over time.

Replacing your spark plugs regularly can help your vehicle run at peak performance, and it can also save you at least £100 in labour costs. Here’s our DIY guide on how to change your spark plugs.

The BTCC Media Day is a chance for the public and press to get their first glimpse of the cars they will be following for the season ahead. In the backdrop of the legendary Donington Park circuit, the time had come for the teams to showcase the results of their winter’s labour. This was my first time attending the Media Day, and I was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed was the sheer volume of support from the fans; the queue to get into the…
  • How To Eat While Driving

    29 Mar 2015 | 12:13 pm
    Note bad choice of food – and not just from a health perspective! This is an article that you would never find written in French.  Or, if you did, it would consist of only one word: Don’t.  There is a reason why French cars such as Citroens  don’t come with cup holders.  According to French thinking, food is to be savoured and given one’s full attention rather than wolfed down on the go while driving.  Well, there’s a lot to say for that point of view.  However, if you’ve got a busy schedule, you could very easily find yourself eating on the run behind the wheel.  In…
  • New Releases: New Cars for 2015 and Beyond

    24 Mar 2015 | 6:33 pm
    Jaguar, that quintessential and iconic English brand, unveiled the new XF in a somewhat unusual way in London. Jaguar is proud and rightfully so of its aluminuim architecture and engineering. It’s quoting 80 kilograms lighter than its nearest competitor in its segment and reduced CO2 emissions along with a mooted 70 miles per gallon (diesel engine). The way that Jaguar showed off its new car certainly is an eyebrow raiser; we watch humans walk along thin wires and marvel at how they stay on. Jag went further and ran the XF across two wires, crossing the Thames at Canary Wharf.
  • The Toughest Place To Get Your Licence

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:41 pm
    So you thought that the practical driving test that you had for getting your driver’s licence was hard.  I know I did.  Didn’t help that the cop who put me through my paces when I was a timid wee lass of 17 was built like a brick outhouse (fine for dealing with the local drunk and disorderlies; terrifying for a nervous teenager).  However, the most difficult thing I got asked to do was to back around a corner – something that I’d never heard of or seen done so I initially suspected some sort of trap.  Also, the small town where I sat my licence was out that back of nowhere, and…

    Small cars divide opinion; are they safe, are they slow with people in them, are they really that economical? Volkswagen offers drivers a choice of two small cars, being the up! and the Polo. A Wheel Thing trundled around in the Polo 81TSI Comfortline with these questions being asked. And answered. Powersource. It’s a miniscule 1.2L engine, turbocharged but with some impressive numbers: 81kW from 4600 through to 5600 revs and plateau flat torque from 1400 to 4000 revs. The twist is 175 Nm between those numbers, offering rapid acceleration and flexibility once on song.

    In the 1970s, Marcello Gadini designed some really awesome cars. Among the memorabe ones were the Lamborghini Countach and the Maserati Khamsin. While those aforementioned vehicles saw a generous production run, a car company called Bertone also produced showcased some great concepts and one-offs. One of these was featured in the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage: The 1967 Bertone Pirana.

    Some Say the “M” Stands for Maniacal When the engineers at BMW’s M (it actually stands for Motorsport) subsidiary get their brainy little hands on a vehicle, something magical happens. In the case of the perfectly posh X6 SUV, the peppy cargo and people hauler goes from something nicely suited for hauling a soccer team around to a beast more at home on a Grand Prix circuit. Already outfitted with a substantial 445-horsepower engine, the men and women at the M division added two Honeywell turbochargers to generate an amazing 567 horses.

    Design Philosophy Believes Form Follows Function All of the iconic design features that make a BMW instantly recognizable begin with a desire to deliver an improved driving performance. The classic kidney grill, part of the design since 1933, was originally implemented to reduce drag. The long, sloping hood helps distribute weight evenly to all four wheels. Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts. The familiar BMW logo, known as the “Roundel,” is based upon the colors in the…

The BMW design team has succeeded at creating a sports car that works perfectly well for a family while still making innocent bystanders stand up and take notice.  Although a hard top is available, the soft top provides more room in the cargo hold when stowed away.

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:30 am
    I’ll be the first to say that I like the way Lincoln currently designs cars. Big and beautiful and ticking all the right boxes for the American luxury segment. But I have a problem with the new Continental concept: what happened to the design? It’s like Lincoln designers just forgot what to do. I know a lot of you aren’t fans of Lincoln’s current elegant design cues. Though, I’m not entirely sure why. When you look at a car like the MKZ, it definitely stands out in a crowded space of Audis and BMWs. I think it’s beautiful, whether you agree with me or not.RELATED: See…

    Apart from the cost of the initial purchase, you also need to take into account car insurance premium when calculating your overall automobile expenses. For as long as you use your vehicle, you will be paying for insurance. Good enough if it is cheap. Then again, you can always find ways to enjoy cheaper premium, such as opting out of a comprehensive coverage, or buying from a lesser-known provider. Not worth the price to pay?

    The more I read and study about new ways to micro-target an audience and dissect data down to the smallest degree possible, the more I think back to foundational principles of marketing which contain a component of reach and frequency. In order to create awareness, consideration and motivation you must talk to a big enough audience enough times so that you can drive a portion of the market that is intending to buy. Especially if you plan on selling any product in volume there must be enough consideration to drive the motivation. When you are promoting any item, especially an automobile or a…

      In our series on untangling the complexity of having a great Internet marketing strategy, this month’s focus is on looks. Not “looks” in terms of how many vehicle display pages are viewed or what content is being viewed, but the visual appeal that your site gives off to the shopper. You have probably heard the phrase “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” and the same holds true for your website.

  • Peugeot to introduce textured paint finishes

    29 Mar 2015 | 11:10 am
    Most manufacturers strive to give their cars smooth and blemish-free paintwork. However, Peugeot is set to do exactly the opposite by offering its newly-facelifted 208 with two exclusive textured matt shades. Called Ice Grey and Ice Silver, they've apparently taken four years to develop. Their secret is a unique lacquer which incorporates fine silica particles and polyamide micro-balloons. As a result, it's claimed that the granular finish is hard-wearing and scratch-resistant. If some extra contrast is needed, Menthol White or Lime Yellow styling packs can be specified for the exterior and…

  • 2015 Audi R18 e-tron quattro unveiled

    Rumours of a move into Formula One persist, but for now at least Audi remains fully committed to the FIA World Endurance Championship. Its contender for the 2015 season is a heavily-revised R18 e-tron quattro. Alterations to the car's styling have focussed on aerodynamic improvements. While the basic monocoque is essentially unchanged, the front bodywork is all-new. Furthermore, the engine cover is more compact and modified sidepods should better deliver cooling air to the radiators. Audi has also taken the opportunity to enhance the R18's hybrid powertrain. In a significant move, its 4.0…

In order to showcase their new natural-gas synthetic motor oils, Pennzoil took a Hellcat out for a wild ride that included an Airlft Drift stunt. While parts of the video are clearly CGI, it’s still entertaining to see and hear the utter brutality that the Hellcat possesses.

Fourty-three-year-old Samuel Salas left a bar on a Saturday night in a Jeep with his girlfriend in the passenger seat, clearly drunk.

    Honda Civic Tourer 2015 is an absolute stunner providing balanced performance and luxury. It provides sufficient space and good driving dynamics. However, there are many other cheaper alternatives that you can choose. When it comes to storage, Honda Civic Tourer has a huge capacity in the boot and you can also fold the back seats to add more room. The rear visibility is poor and dash control buttons are scattered all over the place. Refinement is disappointing as well considering the price of the car. The car comes with plenty of pre-loaded features such as 16inch alloy wheels, DAB radio and…

    Brake pads are designed for high friction with brake pad material embedded in the disc in the process of bedding while wearing evenly. Friction can be divided into two parts. They are: adhesive and abrasive. If any brake component suspected of faulty operation needs to be checked instantly. The disc brake pads on new cars have their own peculiar warning signs, and being able to understand them early enough can reduce a significant amount of repair cost. The front disc brake pads provide most of the stopping power for the vehicle and can actually wear out faster than the rear brakes. Tools…

  • All you wanted to know about your Car’s Alternator & the right telltale signs to change it on time?

    A Car’s Alternator produces electricity that flows into the battery, which is then used to run the electrical components in your Car it also keeps the battery fully charged, providing the power to crank start the Car’s engine. An Alternator produces alternating current (AC) as opposed to the generator on older vehicles.

    It is a rather exciting fact that one of the world’s leading BSA customisers is from our very own country. I’m not talking customising as in ‘bobber’ or ‘cafe racer’ customisation, I’m talking of a man who builds the BSA engines that might have been, and mounts then in period specific frames. This man is Doug Fraser of Emu Engineering, and he has been kind enough to take the time to answer some questions about his craft. So where did it all start, when did you first take part in the world of motorcycling? I started riding at the age of 13, on a…

This early 1920s BSA featured what is known as a total loss oil system (as well as featuring no headlight as it was only an option!). Without an automatic pump system mounted in the crankcase, it was up to the rider to watch the oil contained in the sight glass, and pump as required. A more vigorous pace called for more vigorous pumping, quite a task on the Australian roads of the first half of the last century. Next time you take…

The hard, flat block allowed you to sand to a much more uniform surface. Later, the heavy rubber style “alligator” or “vampire” sanding blocks were invented with teeth in them to grip a 1/4 strip of sand paper, but that compared to today that is still stone age technology.

    Technicians and Service Advisors are extremely productive members of your dealership team. Generating between $10-30K a month is gross profit, each individual in the Service Department is practically a small-business owner when considering the high levels of revenue and expenses that they manage. So why are they left clueless when it comes to the core metrics that drive a profitable operation?

    Below are some thoughts on what overpaying a technician can do to your profitability and a suggestion on how to set up a simple, effective pay plan that will protect your bottom line. Let’s start with what you [hopefully] know: In order to run a profitable service department, your gross margins (i.e. the difference between what you collect from the customer and what you pay the technician) must be above 70% on retail, warranty and internal labor, preferably 72-75%. These margins can be weak if discounting is rampant, pricing is faulty, or technician pay plans are not set up properly.

The stronger Service departments in North America make sure advisors, technicians and any other productive personnel understand this key metric since it drives a significant portion of the Service Department’s profitability. Unfortunately, too often the numbers are just pulled from the DMS without any real analysis on how the metric is calculated and what it means. Let’s explore the basics: The first step to make sure everyone is clear on what Effective Labor Rate is. Ask…

Diesels have generally been marketed as being far more fuel efficient than petrols, potentially offering incredibly good miles per gallon, which is supposed to be good for the environment, and engine longevity. Now however, this article suggests that there are proposals to place additional taxes on many diesel-powered cars when they go into certain areas of several UK cities, and this is because while the vehicles might be efficient on fuel, they aren’t actually that good for the environment, or indeed,…

    There is no end to the number of videos featuring Nissan GT-Rs hitting high speeds that are uploaded on YouTube. However there is no video better than the one where the 2,000-hp beast of a car is seen hitting amazing speeds. This Extreme Turbo Systems-tuned car covered the quarter mile at the Royal Purple Raceway at Texas in just 7.49 s while hitting a high speed of 189 mph. Although both the announcers and the fans of this beautiful machine are calling it to be a world record, we aren’t very sure about why they are calling it so. The car no doubt is very fast but isn’t faster than the…

    GM doesn’t really hide the fact that they are excited about the 2016 Chevy Camaro. The series is closing in on its 500,000th fifth-generation Camaro sale, which gives the company plenty of confidence, not that they need it. From the gazillion teasers they have released in the last couple of months, it’s obvious that the new car will be a grandiose attempt at the company’s most complete Camaro yet. As Todd Christiansen acknowledged, “The fifth-generation Camaro has clearly resonated with both long-time Camaro fans and first time performance-car buyers”.It seems like the company found…

  • McLaren P1 vs Nissan GT-R street race (VIDEO)

    29 Mar 2015 | 11:29 pm
    When a McLaren P1 supercar pulls up alongside a Nissan GT-R at the lights the only reasonable thing to do is stage a little drag race. The Nissan GT-R has long been one of the fastest accelerating performance cars in the world, capable of cracking 62mph in under three seconds. When it launched it was one of the few cars available to boldly claim a sub-three second sprint time, but with the arrival of the three hybrid hypercars from Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren the sub-three club has grown significantly. The video below shows what happens when a 903hp McLaren P1 pulls up alongside a modified…

The McLaren P1 is the ultimate expression of what a modern supercar can be with the technology available right now. It uses a lightweight carbon fibre construction, twin-turbo V8 engine and most intriguingly a hybrid electric system that allows it to be no more detrimental to the planet than an ordinary hatchback. Yet it has 903hp, can hit 62mph in under three seconds, 124mph in about 5 seconds and 186mph in around 16 seconds. Yes, it is bonkers fast. In creating the…

They haven’t gone completely insane like fans of One Direction member Zayne who quit the band on the same day of Clarkson’s sacking. Those fans have been taking sick days on the grounds of ‘compassion’ and even self-harming in some cases, which is a bit pathetic. Top Gear fans have been much more reasonable.

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:42 am
    There are many dilemmas you’ll have to face when you’re buying a new car. The first, and maybe biggest, is whether to buy a new car or a used one. It’s not an easy decision to make.

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:30 am
    My Electric Avenue is a project designed by Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) to learn how electric car charging will affect the operations of the utility as electric car usage rises.

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.

    Lamborghini has unleashed its most brutal road-going model yet – the new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Super Veloce.

As you can imagine, much of this weight loss is thanks to a more…

    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.

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…

Whether they’re the Twin Turbo or V8 variety, it seems Australia imported over a tonne of Z30 models over the years and now given their relatively low price, they can be found pretty everywhere. (So it’s now up there with Commodores, Falcons and once upon a time the Hyundai Excel). What you rarely see however, is the earlier second generation Z20 models running around – which is a shame really because they look the business and scream 80’s more…

Either way, they have all created buzz for the luxury brand as it tries to recapture some of its cachet from years past. A new short by stoner hero Tommy Chong, pimping out the weed king’s new product called “Tommy Chong’s Smoke Swipe” is pretty funny, but also brings to light a market segment that is likely already driving Lincoln products: grey haired dopers.
