    The 2015 Ford Mustang GT has barely hit the streets, but the folks at Bama Performance have already created a drag-strip dominator from one. What did they wring out of the new S550-chassis Mustang? Oh, just a 9.91-second quarter at 135 mph, no turbos or superchargers required: The naturally aspirated build is an example of what can happen with more (and higher-grade) fuel, more air, and a healthy shot of nitrous oxide. Bigger injectors and FTW Purple 116-octane race fuel handle the boom, a cold-air intake and a Boss 302 manifold provide breathing, and a Nitrous Express plate fogger gives…
  • What's the best new pickup truck?

    20 Nov 2014 | 6:38 am
    It's actually a question I really don't like answering, because pickup trucks are unique among vehicles: the segment has to address a huge number of needs, from people who need them to tow large trailers, to those who just want them as a car with an open trunk. So the truck that's best at trailering might not be ideal for someone in the city, for example. But the Toronto Star's annual "Best Of" guide needed me to pick some, and so I did. Find out which ones they were over at The Star.

  • Report: Cadillac plans new crossover, Porsche 911 and Rolls-Royce rivals, confirms Johan de Nysschen

    admin
    25 Nov 2014 | 1:19 pm
    CARandDRIVER recently got the lowdown with Cadillac at Los Angeles, following a year full of big changes. For one thing, Cadillac just moved their entire center of operations from Detroit to New York, and there’s a new CEO in town to move Caddy into the next level. That CEO would be Johan de Nysschen, formerly of Audi and Infiniti, and he sat down with C/D in a recent interview. In that interview, C/D learned de Nysschen has big plans for Cadillac, one of which involves a new ultra-luxury sedan competitor to go neck-and-neck with some Rolls-Royce and Bentley models, which was recently…
  • Report: Audi still on track with a production version of Quattro Concept

    admin
    24 Nov 2014 | 8:28 pm
    Audi teased us twice over the years over the prospect of a possible modern day rendition of the original Quattro Sport Coupe by creating and showcasing two concepts. To boot, we had the Audi Quattro and Sport Quattro concepts, with the first sporting a hot 2.5L turbocharged five-cylinder modeled after the original’s unit while the second Sport Quattro had a 700hp hybrid powertrain. On both cases, Audi denied any possibility about the models reaching production, despite many of us asking for it. But now, it seems the production Quattro could be on the table once again for production…
  • The 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek priced at $21,595

    admin
    24 Nov 2014 | 3:27 pm
    Earlier this year, Subaru announced to be slightly revising the XV Crosstrek for the 2015 model year and now, they said it’ll cost ya $21,595 for one. For that price, one gets the XV Crosstrek 2.0i, which is $400 cheaper than the outgoing base model. That model still exists and actually climbs in price by $300 to accommodate the extra cost of a new multimedia infotainment system. Prices obviously climb as you start adding power amenities such as replacing the five-speed manual with a CVT, which bumps it up t $23,295 for the Premium trimed XV Crosstrek. Should you get the most expensive…
  • Report: A new Kia KX3 Concept gets leaked, to debut in Guangzhou

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:58 pm
    A new crossover concept seems to have surfaced in China, which could provide a glimpse into a possible new crossover model, as it appears. It’s called the Kia KX3 and according to Terranismo, the new model is a concept based on the Hyundai ix25. As a result, it could preview a future crossover, perhaps a new Sportage for our shores. The production version should come with the choice of two Hyundai-sourced inline-fours with 1.6 and 2.0L of displacement, a dual-clutch automatic or the choice of a manual, and optional four-wheel drive.

    EMC Enterprise is a data management and cloud solution company who apparently has some sort of relationship with Lotus F1. And recently, the two came together in an interesting world-record truck jump as a commercial pitch, which was approved by the Guinness World Record. Here’s the break down. There’s an F1 car being driven by Martin Ivanov and Lotus F1’s semi-truck, piloted by Mike Ryan. Both are esteemed members in motorsports and staged stunt driving. Ryan drives the semi-truck off of a jump, which sets the record for the furthest distance a truck jumped off of a ramp,…

  • TTAC AMA: I Own An Alfa Romeo 4C

    Derek Kreindler
    25 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    This week, TTAC reader vaujot from Frankfurt am Main chimes in. To start, you may wonder why I bought this car. Two reasons: Firstly, I am an Alfista. I have memories of sitting in my uncle’s Giulia sedan as a five-year old and the unusual smell of leather interior (he eventually gave up on Alfas, they’re not well suited for Swiss winters). Since eight years, I own a 1962 Giulia Spider and through this have made the acquittance of nice and interesting fellow Alfa owners. I think it is great that they again make a car that you can drive to a meeting of Porsche owners and get…

  • Junkyard Find: 1977 Chevrolet Nova Coupe

    The fourth-generation Chevrolet Nova sold in huge numbers, wasn’t a bad car by the standards of its time, and stayed on the street in significant quantities well into the 1990s. However, the Malaise Era Nova just never gathered much of an enthusiast following compared to its predecessors— if you want to restore a Nova these days, you’ll get a ’64 or ’70, not a ’78— so the few remaining survivors go right to the scrapper when they die. Here’s a very worn-out example that I saw in California last week. I’m quite familiar with this generation of…
  • Ford Sources Say Derek Is Wrong About New Ford GT

    Bob Lutz is not the only one who is “often wrong, never in doubt”. When I penned my Ford GT editorial, I had a pretty sound case for believing that the latest reports of a successor to Ford’s supercar were little more than clickbait. By usually reliable sources inside the Blue Oval seemed to concur. And then I got a phone call from someone who is placed highly enough to know. It turns out that our sources didn’t initially see any indication of a new GT program because it’s not being done through the usual channels. It will be a *very* limited product car, of…
  • Mercedes-Benz Releases Automotive Rorschach Test

    Derek Kreindler
    25 Nov 2014 | 8:09 am
      The collective distaste for the Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA is known among the B&B and the wider automotive world – but now, Mercedes has dropped a collective bomb on the psyche of enthusiasts everywhere. A reflexive love of all things station wagon/shooting brake pervades the gearhead mentality. Will they accept a station wagon version of the Mercedes CLA? Mechanically, it’s identical to the standard car, and the sloping roofline might even make it less practical than the GLA in terms of cargo hauling ability. But it’s suitably obscure enough to send a tingle…

  • Honda Hid Nearly 1800 Injuries and Deaths From NHTSA For More Than a Decade

    Robert Sorokanich
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:43 am
    Honda Motor Company disclosed this week that it failed to report 1729 injuries or deaths to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as required by law. The unreported incidents, which occurred between 2003 and 2014, vastly outweigh the approximately 900 injuries or deaths the company did report during that time. The New York Times reports that this week’s revelation comes after an outside law firm audited Honda’s reporting procedures at the carmaker’s request. The issue of underreporting injuries and deaths was first identified by a Honda employee in 2011, the…

  • 2015 Smart Forfour First Drive: Why Isn’t the Five-Door Smart Coming Here?

    Michael Taylor
    25 Nov 2014 | 7:35 am
    The Smart Fortwo is a known quantity. It’s the expensive novelty you often see strewn haphazardly on snippets of unclaimed urban streetscape, especially in Europe. It survives because of Daimler stubbornness—after 16 years, the automaker has yet to boast of a Smart profit—and burbles along at about 100,000 global sales per year, partly because it’s the only thing of its kind. The new Fortwo arrives here next year as a 2016 model. READ MORE ››

(The others: A-class hatch, B-class hatch, CLA-class sedan, and GLA-class crossover.) No, this little brother to the CLS Shooting Brake won’t come here, but we can at least dig on the photos and info. The CLA Shooting Brake features a fast, tapering roofline—and four doors, unlike a traditional shooting brake—and will be offered with a number of four-cylinder gasoline and…
  • Scion Exec Says FR-S Convertible and Turbo Models Won’t Happen

In an interview with WardsAuto, Scion senior vice president Doug Murtha states unequivocally that the FR-S will remain a coupe with a naturally aspirated, Subaru-sourced flat-four. On the topic of the madly yearned-for turbocharged engine option, Murtha deadpanned: “That’s not something that’s coming.” Ouch. As for the droptop variant (rendered above), it appears…

  • EPA Delays Biofuel Renewable Fuel Standard Decision

    Paul Riegler
    23 Nov 2014 | 5:15 pm
    The Environmental Protection Agency announced on Friday that it was postponing the issuance of final Renewable Fuel Standards, the rule that set the levels of biofuel that would be required to be blended into convention fuels, for 2014. In a brief statement on its website, the agency said that the delay stems from what it called “significant comment and controversy” over the biofuel targets since its proposal was released last year.  It questioned if the rules would be able to achieve “the volumes of renewable fuel targeted by the statute.” Instead, the agency will take up the rule…

Approximately two thirds of the investment will go towards increasingly efficient vehicles and more environmentally friendly production. The announcement came following a meeting of the company’s board of supervisors on Friday. “Development costs will remain high in the future as a result of high innovation pressure and increasing demands on the automotive industry from CO2 legislation,” said VW CEO Martin Winterkorn in a…

    Audi announced the opening of a pilot plant in Dresden, Germany that produces diesel fuel from water, CO2, and green electricity. The plant will be operated in conjunction with Climeworks and sunfire to industrialize e-fuels. The sunfire plant requires carbon dioxide, water, and electricity as raw materials to operate. The carbon dioxide is extracted from the air using an air capturing process, while another unit uses splits water into hydrogen and oxygen, which then reacts with the carbon dioxide in two chemical processes. This produces an energetic liquid that is made up of hydrocarbon…

    Honda is replacing airbags nationwide, not just in humid states, from Autoblog. With a Senate hearing scheduled for November 20, the investigations into the exploding airbag inflators from automotive supplier Takata are just beginning. Honda is among the automakers most affected by the problem with over five million vehicles potentially in need of repair in the US, according to the last estimate from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But the actual number being fixed could be even higher because the company is also working with worried owners nationwide. According to the…

    US closes Ford steering probe without recall, from The Telegraph. U.S. safety regulators have closed an investigation into steering problems in more than 500,000 Ford full-size cars without seeking a recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating problems in the 2004 through 2007 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis and Marauder cars in July. The agency was looking into complaints that a heat shield could rust, dislodge and cause the steering shaft to jam. Investigators reviewed 18 complaints about the problem and found that it occurred infrequently,…

    “I wonder how long will it take for the folks at Berkshire Hathaway to scroll down the financial statements and discover how expensive it can be to own an older legacy DMS.” One of my favorite moments in the movie “Ghostbusters” comes at the end when the little accountant played by Rick Moranis, asks “Who are you guys?” and more importantly, “Who does your taxes?” When I heard that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway was buying the Van Tuyl Group with 75 dealerships, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Who’ll be the DMS provider?” It appears that the initial management…

  • Review: 2014 Scion tC

    Chris Haak
    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…
  • Review: BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A Tires (Baja Tested)

    2 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    There are trips that one dreams about, and trips that one never forgets. My trip to Baja to test the new BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires falls into the latter category. I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in. The tires survived what we threw at…
  • Top Muscle: “Light Painting” the Muscle-Car Masterpieces

    Charles Krome
    12 Jun 2014 | 9:38 am
    I made an interesting discovery recently when I got my hands on a tome called “Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America’s Fastest Decade.” The team at Motorbooks had sent it to me for review and—unsurprisingly—I was expecting to learn a thing or two about rare muscle-cars when it arrived. Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…
  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Jeep Renegade

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Mercedes-Benz (CLA), Lincoln (MKC) and Audi (A3) aren’t the only automakers searching for additional sales volume by moving downmarket to smaller vehicles that are intended to hopefully maintain the brand’s character at a lower price point. The idea is to then keep those buyers as they move to larger, more-profitable models. The latest brand to take a play from this book is Jeep, with the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The Renegade looks like no other vehicle, and like no other Jeep, yet it still is clearly a Jeep. Forget what you may read about a Fiat-based front wheel drive…

On the occasion of the iconic car’s 50th anniversary this week, New York was the perfect place to reveal the 2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Limited Edition.

    Have you ever dreamed about climbing a ski mountain in a Jeep? I know I have. The thought of scaling peaks in a 4×4 has crossed my mind countlessly over the years while riding on the chairlift. So when BF Goodrich asked if I might be interested in a hands-on demo of their their brand new All-Terrain T/A KO2s at Hunter Mountain on a tricked out Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I jumped on the opportunity. This was not an ordinary media junket. I didn’t need to get on a plane, dress up, or sit through a slide presentation. All I needed to do was gather up my cameras, drive Slambo up to…

    If you’ve never had the need to get rid of a junk car, count yourself lucky. Dumping a clunker can be a real hassle. The trick is to minimize your financial loss without spending a huge amount of time, effort and expense. I’ve had to unload more than a few junkers over the years and it’s never been fun. For most consumers, junking a car is a losing proposition. But for entrepreneurs, there’s plenty of money to be made. Think about all of the print, TV, and radio advertisements you’ve endured for WeBuyAnyCar, for example. Their pervasive jingle is a highly-effective earworm. If they…

Valvoline sent a crew to shoot a day-in-the-life with me a few weeks back. They did an awesome job of capturing what drives me every day. We took a nice long ride in Slambo, heading out from Rancho Indebto all the way down through the Pinelands to Tuckerton, one of the towns on the Jersey Shore that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Progress Update: The first phase of work on Slambo continues. In the coming weeks,…

    Do you keep track of much you spend on gasoline every month? What would you do with a spare twenty, fifty, or hundred dollars? Making some small changes can save a nice chunk of cash over time. The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here. Everyone in America should have the choice of what they drive.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

    This 2015 Audi Q3 compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV) is a new segment entry for the German luxury automaker. Its coupe-like profile, deep Audi signature grille and distinctive exterior lighting succeed in giving it a fairly sporty look, and given its modest exterior size, its 5-passengers interior is relatively roomy, quiet, comfortable and premium in virtually every detail of craftsmanship, materials and consistently tight panel gaps. Its standard and only engine is a 200-hp 2.0-liter TFSI (turbocharged and direct fuel injected) 4-cylinder driving the front wheels through a…

The RC 350's 306-hp V6 drives through an 8-speed "Sports Program Direct Shift" (SPDS) automatic with rear drive or a 6-speed automatic with available all-wheel drive. An F SPORT version offers Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and Lexus Dynamic Handling with rear-wheel steering, and a white-hot RC F model antes up 467 V8 horsepower. The aluminum 3.5-liter V6 generates 277 lb.-ft. of torque…

    Here comes Ford with all-new aluminum-bodied F-150s, lighter by several hundred pounds than the 2014s they replace, with even better capabilities and substantially more available features. Famed Lotus race-car designer/builder Colin Chapman touted "adding lightness" (instead of more power) to make his cars lap faster, and that "enlightened" approach works equally well for pickup trucks. A lighter truck body enables a lighter frame, lighter suspension, lighter brakes, lighter powertrain, etc. A lighter truck handles better, stops shorter and performs better. Or it can perform, tow and haul…
  • 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR Test Drive

    Nissan might have gotten off on the wrong foot earlier this year, when they introduced the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR, a brand new trim level, as the “sporty” model in the lineup. After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…

The Kia GT was originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011, and soon we will see a production version of the swooping sedan. This wouldn’t be Kia’s first foray into the world of luxury sedans, but it is certainly a bold move. The flagship Kia K900 sedan has been a tough sell for buyers, who are yet to drop their preexisting notions of the Korean brand.

    I just wanted to toss this out for Car Lust reader contemplation. The past couple of months I've been wrestling with the question of what to do with my Mustang II. Essentially, to keep it as a fun old car to drive around in, or make it into a show car. I'll run through the pros and cons below, but here's a bit of background to ponder: First, it's not stock. As the link above indicates, it was my only car for nigh onto 25 years so it got its share of dings and such, and I eventually replaced the engine and exhaust because the old one was pretty wheezy, dirty, and expensive…

But you know what? It didn't matter. This velvety-smooth little hybrid, combining everything that's perfect and balanced about Ford's Fusion platform with the ultra-efficiency of a plug-in hybrid, managed to shine through the most dreary miasma that Seattle's late-fall days had to offer. Maybe the pics turned out a little soggy, but the essential vibrancy of this plucky and refined hybrid was…

I can just picture the (totally made-up) scenario… Motorcycle magazine writers curious to what was Yamaha up to, asking themselves what could possibly be more fun than the Gixxer that they were testing. Again. They asked the Suzuki…

When I first posited such an idea to the owners of these respective cars via a post on Facebook, I didn't think they'd take me up on the deal, and figured it'd be nothing more than a friendly comment. Shortly after that initial post, however, we'd…

I'm sure there has to be some kind of punchline behind this clip. This video first popped up on Bangshift and then Jalopnik. All we know at this point comes via the explanation of the guy who shot the video. Hey guys, not sure if this is Bangshift material but thought I would share anyway.

  • Race cars or time machines? The Classic 24 Hour at Daytona

    A 1965 Ford GT40 runs through the Daytona infield at dusk. All photos by Chris Brewer. Editor’s note: We couldn’t make this year’s Classic 24 Hour at Daytona, so we asked Jacksonville, Florida, resident Chris Brewer to cover it for us. Chris is a contributor to the Florida Times Union newspaper, and serves as senior editor of Automotive Addicts. Rare are the moments when life overwhelms me to the point that I literally need to pause and catch my breath. I pride myself in being prepared for just about anything; after all, being the father of a teenager will do that to a man.

    Mike Hill’s psychedelic 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Photos by author. Old race cars never die. Some get rebuilt to go vintage racing, while others get restored. Then there were those old race cars that got customized with the latest period trends before hitting the streets for some traffic light showdowns.  This 1970 Plymouth Superbird is such a car. But this isn’t your average Superbird, if there could be such a thing. It’s a Hemi-powered Superbird, one of just 93 produced out of the 1,920 Superbirds built. And it’s a former Summernationals class winner, so don’t…

    By The Car Family There is something for everyone in the BMW 328 all-wheel drive diesel wagon. For the family there is room for five and a dog or two. For the enthusiast there is the typical excellent BMW handling, suspension, and brakes. For the frugal there is the 30 plus mpg highway mileage and the reliability of a diesel engine. And for the adventurous that all-wheel drive makes light off-roading an enjoyable task. Of course, all these ingredients come at a cost and the wagon’s base price is just north of $40,000 BMW. The real story is the BMW diesel engine which has a unique…

    By John Bowman, Communications Director, National Motorists Association When people hear the term “speed trap” they usually conjure up images of a police officer hiding behind a billboard waiting to pick off unsuspecting drivers right where the speed limit drops. And while there is some truth to this stereotype, a more accurate description of a speed trap is enforcement of an inappropriately low speed limit on a high-traffic road. Traffic ticket revenue is a boon to city administrators trying to plug the holes in their annual budgets. Speed traps provide a convenient means to that end,…

You're in good company, because demand for what could be the last naturally aspirated V8 supercar from Maranello is apparently soaring. As a result, some buyers who've already placed their orders are reportedly being "advised" to add on extra options or risk losing their place on the waiting list to someone who will.

Jean-Marc Gales (pictured above) is the new captain at the helm of the British sports car brand, and he seems like the complete opposite of Bahar.

It is, after all, a premium high performance (particularly when the Model S in question is the new AWD, 691 horsepower P85 D) sedan, and there are plenty of hopped-up four-doors with AMG, M, RS and V on their rumps. RevoZport saw no reason why it shouldn’t create tuning parts for the all-electric American super sedan, so it has come up with a new family of tuning parts wearing the R-Zentric label.

    To the uninitiated, the Acura ILX may seem like little more than a rebadged Honda Civic. But take a look inside and get behind the wheel, and you’ll quickly appreciate that the ILX is a completely different kind of compact that deserves to be labeled “premium.” Still, when the ILX arrived in showroom, it had some drivers craving for a more thrilling experience; one that was reminiscent of the Integra or now defunct TSX.

    News of a truck that gets the same fuel economy as a family sedan, and is capable of pulling 12,000 pounds of trailer, would change the game for American pickups. Of course, we’ll never get the two of those things together. With trucks, fuel economy and towing capacity are an either/or proposition. Trucks capable of close to 30 miles per gallon on the highway are now here, and we have trucks that can pull 12,000 pounds, but we will never have a truck that pulls 12,000 pounds while getting anything more than about 9 miles per gallon.

  • Banner Booster Year: Better Child Seats

    AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women
    19 Nov 2014 | 1:02 pm
    Booster seats for children who have outgrown their forward-facing car seats continue to improve, according to the most recent safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These ratings are meant to help parents decide which ones to buy. It can be a difficult task, since there are no federal standards to address how well booster seats are designed so that seatbelts, which are made for adults, fit properly on children who are too big for child safety seats. Booster seats are meant to fill the gap between the time a child is too big for a forward-facing child safety seat with…
  • Deja Fuel Multi-Gas Tech from the 80s Makes a Comeback in Chevy Impala

    AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women
    18 Nov 2014 | 1:12 pm
    By Derek Handova Those of us who were children of the 1980s and had a Midwestern experience at some point might remember multi-fuel-capable GM trucks. The one summer that I spent working a seasonal job in Colorado, there was another employee from Nebraska who had a Chevy pickup modified to run on gasoline and propane. The details of how the air-fuel mix was adjusted for switchover escape me, but the concept was to save money at the pump and extend overall range. In the Eighties, it was a long way between service stations in western Nebraska. Fast-forward to 2014. Trash to fuel, the stuff of…

  • What Do You Want to Know About The Takata AirBag Recall?

    7 Nov 2014 | 7:26 pm
    The Takata airbag recall has been a high-profile item in the news lately, because it is said to affect more than 7.8 million vehicles in the United States, and as many as 12 million vehicles globally. And that number changes daily as manufacturers continue to add additional vehicles to the list. Several Takata airbag defects are linked to injuries and deaths, including a faulty inflator that can explode too forcefully and hurl shards of shrapnel into the passenger compartment toward drivers and passengers. According to USAToday, Honda has confirmed two deaths related to Takata airbags, and…

Nobody would normally, but looking at what Cadillac has revealed last week makes us think otherwise. The All American company has more than one trick up its sleeve, and aims to prove it once more on the track. After separating from its mother-company; GM, Cadillac now has the full control to potentially show us what they are made of by releasing this 600HP ATS-V.R.

  • Little kid parks car like a budding Ken Block

    admin
    5 Nov 2014 | 4:04 pm
    At this point in the calender cycle, we’re probably all familiar with Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos (if you’re not, don’t feel left out – watch here). Naturally, as acts of controlled hoonage grow in popularity, younger and younger kids are going to become fans. And like monkeys, kids see, kids do. 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.

A 1,200-horsepower “Super Veyron” has also re-entered the rumor mill of late. Even an entry-level roadster was mooted at one point.

  • F1: Lewis Hamilton wants to keep number 44 in 2015

    24 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM 2014 world champion Lewis Hamilton wants to keep his personal race number 44 next year rather than switch to number 1. Traditionally, the reigning world champion in F1 wears the coveted number 1. But a change early in 2014, mimicking the system in MotoGP, meant drivers were able to pick their own number between 2 and 99 to keep for the rest of their careers. Having run the number 1 throughout the season, outgoing world champion Vettel will now revert to his chosen number 5 to take to Ferrari in 2015. Mercedes' Hamilton has run 44, and even has the number tattooed behind his right…

In late 2007, when the Spaniard left Woking amid acrimony and the 'spygate' furore, a reunion with Dennis even years later appeared impossible. But the impossible now appears to be fact, with Alonso almost certainly having already signed a deal and McLaren deciding only the identity of his teammate for the Honda-powered 2015 season. "From what I read," said Fernando Alonso in Abu Dhabi, "I'm not the most pleasant person to work with, but the bottom line is that I can usually go back to a team…

Already with a contract for 2015, the dotted line may go unsigned until he has appointed a new management team in the coming months, but he told reporters on Monday that the 2016 contract is "a formality".

It has been suggested that, after winning 4 titles on the trot, German Vettel could not cope with being comprehensively beaten by team newcomer Ricciardo in 2014. But Australian Ricciardo is not sure it is quite as simple as that, even though "the team duel probably didn't make Sebastian's decision any harder".

Although sporty and somewhat luxurious, the first-generation Mazda6 wasn’t the gorgeous sedan we’re all familiar with today. It took Mazda about 10 years to refine the sedan, which entered a new era in 2012, when the third-generation model rolled out. Designed around the company’s KODO-Soul of Motion styling language, the Mazda6 arrived on U.S. soil with a 2.5-liter, Skyactiv-G unit under its hood, one of three engines offered with the sedan.

The prospect of a world full of cars that consume hydrogen and emit only water has always ranked right up there with flying cars on the list of things that have always been right around the corner. The technology remained too expensive for public consumption, and when hybrids and EVs began selling huge numbers, it seemed everyone just sort of forgot about it. Except for Honda.The Japanese company has arguably more experience than any car company in the world when it comes to hydrogen…

  • Surpisingly Stable Overland

    25 Nov 2014 | 11:43 am
    I am pleasantly surprised at how stable the Overland is in sport mode at speed. I'm thinking maybe next year, throwing some SRT size shoes on her and seeing what she can do on the road course. Ironically, at speed, there is definitely some decent downforce happening as it seems to get more stable as you move faster. Almost feels like driving a previous generation American muscle car. I would have never imagined since I've really been more or less using the Jeep for either commuting or hitting the trails. Has anyone done a road course in their Overland? She'll never be as fast as my GT, but…

    When families and friends get together on Thanksgiving, it can often be an all-day and even weekend-long affair. And why not? For some, it may be one of the few times of the year the whole family gets together for a meal. But the big turkey dinner is only a small part of the holiday. Oftentimes people get together earlier while the meal is still cooking and stay later while their food is settling. And if you have out-of-towners come in, they may stay the whole weekend. So what do you do in all of those extra hours to get the most out of that special family time? Entertain with Crafts and…

Asgard Performance managed to put a 10 cilinder Lamborghini engine on a MK4 R32. The result is on of the most extreme MK4s in existence. The engine power is near 1500ps and the engine produces 1760Nm torque. Weight is just 900kg and that makes a power to weight ratio of 0.75 hp per pound or 1.66ps per kg. The only problem is that there aren’t yet any videos of the car in motion… The post Asgard Performance Bi-Turbo VW Golf appeared first on VW Tuning Mag.

This was my second year attending the LA Auto Show (2013 coverage here) and much like last year the show didn’t disappoint – many new sports cars, convertibles, and alternative energy cars launched. Audi followed that trend by showing off the gorgeously redesigned Audi TT pictured above, as well as the R8 Competition, A7 H-Tron concept, and…

    I had the great fortunate of being invited to the LA Auto Show Press Day again this year as a guest of Kelley Blue Book, which meant I was able to catch the debut of the Audi A9 Prologue Concept, an absolutely stunning design concept. This concept is intended to foreshadow design queues for all upcoming models, although they specifically mentioned styling queues coming soon to the refreshed A6, A7 and A8 models. After the unveiling, it was clear to the audience (and likely Audi themselves) that this concept could have a market of it’s own, taking on large coupes such as the Mercedes S…

Much like the S4, it can be modified to get significantly more horsepower and better handling thanks to a vast array of aftermarket support; add a matte black wrap, 22″ black wheels, and a lowered stance and you’ve got an SUV that looks a performance car, too.

    The Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake, the fifth member of the Stuttgart brand’s growing family of front- and all-wheel-drive small cars, has broken cover.  As the name suggests, the CLA Shooting Brake is a conceptual shoot-off from the CLS Shooting Brake and a sleek wagon version of the already familiar CLA four-door sedan. (On a side note, some insist that ‘shooting brake’ denotes a two-door wagon body style, but such is Mercedes-Benz nomenclature). This model, known internally as X117 for anoraks out there, joins the brand’s MFA-based (meaning the MFA architecture it…

    24 Nov 2014 | 11:02 pm
    More often than not, CarAdvice’s garage is full of recently launched cars, but sometimes it pays to look back at something with a design that goes back a few years. Enter the Jeep Compass.  With the small SUV segment such a hive of activity, it can be easy to forget some of the more established contenders in the mix. The Compass, and its Patriot twin, may have designs dating back to 2007, but both have still experienced sales growth in 2014.  Anyway, it’s not like people only buy cars with new, or recently facelifted, designs. So what happens if a Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage or Skoda…
  • Lexus RC350 coupe lands from a sharp $66K

    Japan’s answer to premium German coupes has arrived locally, with the Lexus RC350 landing priced from $66,000 plus on-road costs, barely $600 more than the IS350 sedan. As with other Lexus models, three grade levels will be available – the $66K Luxury, climbing to the $74,000 F Sport and $86,000 Sports Luxury. As Lexus was quick to remind journalists attending the RC350 launch in Melbourne today, the pricing is lower than the $70-90K-plus guessed by media outlets (including CarAdvice) at the international launch of the car in the US in September. It is also lower than BMW’s 428i…

At the recent Los Angeles auto show, Johan de Nysschen, president of Cadillac, spoke to Car and Driver about his plans for GM’s luxury marque. In the interview de Nysschen stated that he believes there will come a time when a Porsche 911 competitor would be in the best interests of the brand. That time won’t be until 2020 at the earliest, though. De…

  • Why sciatica will drive you mad

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith

    I’ll be honest, I hadn’t even heard of sciatica until a couple of months ago. Essentially, it’s back pain and – I’m ashamed to admit – I never really had much sympathy for people who suffered from it. Back pain was a problem for other people, not for me. But now I have a deep and uncomfortable understanding of sciatica and – perhaps more importantly – the threat it poses to my chosen career. When doctors and physios tell a motoring writer to avoid driving and sitting down, you know there’s trouble ahead. Thankfully – touch wood…
  • The PetrolBlog review: Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC Lineartronic

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC is an impossible car to love. In fact, I don’t even think Subaru UK is too fond of the WRX STI’s frumpy and rather dowdy sibling. Its return to the UK was announced with little fanfare back in March, it went on sale in May and yet very few people know of its existence. It’s understandable really. To Subaru UK, the Impreza WRX STI must be like an excitable puppy – a high profile icon with an ability to sprinkle magic across the entire Subaru range. It would probably lick your face, if you asked it nicely. The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC, on the…

Don’t get me wrong, the end result was a seriously well-equipped car, but to spend that amount of cash on a new MINI would be bunkum. The good news is, you don’t need to. On a wet and windy day in the Cotswolds, I had a play in the all-new MINI One with MINI’s new 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol engine and I’m delighted to report it’s nothing short of brilliant. Proper junior…
  • Is this the end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel?

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    13 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    Forthcoming changes to the MOT test could spell an end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel, PetrolBlog has learnt. Under the planned new Style and Decency section of the annual MOT test, 3-spoke alloy wheels could be driven off the road, with any car wearing them receiving an instant failure notice. This is bad news for motorists with poor taste, but excellent news for the rest of us who have been forced to live with the terrible spectacle for far too many years. The news comes as the Department for Transport seeks to rid the streets of horrendous aftermarket modifications and to save carmakers…

    Even if Takata Corp. increases the speed of production of replacement parts for faulty airbags in millions of recalled vehicles from 300,000 a month to 450,000 monthly, it would not be fast enough to cover the demand for those components. This was admitted by Hiroshi Shimizu, Takata's senior vice president for global quality assurance, in front of United States senators during a hearing by the US Senate Commerce Committee. At the same hearing, David Friedman, deputy administrator of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said that the upgrading a regional recall of cars…

  • New Mini Cooper Launched In India For Rs 31.85 Lakh

    Hamza Ansari
    19 Nov 2014 | 2:01 am
    BMW launched new Mini in India. Reportedly, the company has launched two cars at a time which can be bifurcated as: three-door and five-door version. The three-door version was available earlier too, but the one launched now is a refreshed trim that was unveiled globally during the recent past. The five-door version launched is a practical car and seems the space-vying Indian audience may love it for the reason it offers numerous room for passengers as well as cargo. Though, on a practical note, this big Mini Cooper is still a bit tad on offering the space like other cars, but the company…

    admin
    18 Nov 2014 | 5:57 am
    Whether it’s to hit the ski slopes, traverse mountain roads, or just make it home safely when the storm hits, it’s a huge benefit to have a vehicle that can get you wherever you need to go when the snow falls. And with their higher ground clearance, all-wheel drive capability, and larger tires, SUVs are the de facto vehicle of choice for winter. But not all SUVs are created equal when it comes to winter driving. In fact, some crossovers aren’t likely to fare much better than other vehicles on the roads. But some SUVs models are standouts in the field. Let’s take a look…

    If you were one of the lucky few to have access to your parent’s car whilst comfortably living in your family abode, chances are, you didn’t have to spare two thoughts when pulling their car out of the driveway. Any cost associated problems while you were driving would be passed along to Mum or Dad along followed by the lament: when is this going to be fixed? I need to go to the mall and choose a super awesome outfit for Becky’s super awesome party! Ok, so I’m stereotyping… Slightly. Even I can admit that I didn’t really care too much about ol’ Bessie, who at the time was a…

    Low emission zones mean trouble for diesel car drivers Remember when everyone was being encouraged to buy a diesel car? Diesel was hailed as being the saviour of the environment. You got better miles per gallon. It was cheaper to run. Heck, it was better than sliced bread. (One thing no one mentioned though was diesels tend to be more expensive to service and repair than the same petrol model). But boy have things changed. And it’s taken less than 15 years for the U-turn. Let me tell you now. If you own a diesel sell it now before everyone realises what’s about to happen. And…

    Dear, oh, dear… do I detect a slight note of misogyny in my fellow blogger’s post “Something Wicked This Way Comes” (a title that, incidentally, Ray Bradbury nicked from Shakespeare’s Macbeth)?  The first example is a female P-plater, there’s references to a granny driver and there’s a photo of a woman who doesn’t look that old in this complaint about bad driving. I have absolutely no complaints about the actual examples of bad driving.  And it may be pure coincidence that the bad driver first mentioned happened to be female.  However, there is a long tradition in motoring…

    Summer 2014 is nearly upon us for us here in Australia and it’s a perfect time to look at some basics of car care. But where to start…of course, you can do it at home or take it to a service centre/mechanic. Well, there’s two logical starting points with one being the engine and the other being the tyres. Let’s look at the rubber first. A crucial point is tyre pressure. Why? Having an under or overinflated tyre causes excessive tread wear, can cause sidewall damage, limits the size of contact on the road and can affect the performance of your braking system. The…

We cannot forget however, that clichés are named thusly for a very important reason; repetition of events across time.

    Kia’s Sportage is, possibly, the one vehicle from the Korean company, that exemplifies just how far they’ve come in a comparatively short space of time. The first Sportage was an average looking, average performing, plasticky mid sizer when released in 1993 and is now a great looking, sensationally performing, non plasticky mid sizer in 2014. It’s been on the shortlist to review the Sportage and was eventually lobbed the keys to the diesel powered SLi, clad in Kia’s “Sand Track” metallic paint. The question was, simply, is the Sportage worth the fuss?

    Luxury, power and superior craftsmanship. The 2015 BMW 328i at Chapman BMW on Camelback is a standout in the luxury sedan market, deftly beating the Lexus IS 250, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-300 across the board. The 2015 BMW 328i, powered by a TwinTurbo engine that makes 255 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm is also fuel efficient: It makes an estimated 35mpg on the highway, compared to the less-than-robust 27mpg the Mercedes achieves, or the 32-mpg of the Audi A4. And the Lexus IS 250? Its puny 185hp is no match for the BMW. Standard safety features on the BMW 328i include Xenon Adaptive…

Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

    As if the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 wasn’t powerful enough, Hennessey Performance has gotten its hands on the car for one heck of an upgrade. The Z06 is already a giant leap over the base Corvette, but this tuning job turns it into a track demon.Upgrades included in the HPE1000 start with forged pistons and rods, a custom built HPE camshaft, and ported cylinder heads to up the internals of the Corvette’s 6.2 liter supercharged V8 engine. The supercharger has also gotten some attention to provide even more boost. The intercooler and built-in heat exchanger are revised to draw in…

  • This ’77 Buick LeSabre Might be the Ultimate Sleeper

    No matter what car you’ve got, you can almost always find someone of comparable speed to race against at your local drag strip – even if that car is as slow and lethargic as a 1970s land yacht.However, the notion of “the sleeper” radically upsets that balance. Pull up next to an unassuming ‘70s family cruiser in your new Camaro, and you just might have your doors blown clear off. Let this be a shining example.At face value, this car looks like a typical 1977 Buick LeSabre, albeit equipped with some slick tires. On the inside it is a vintage LeSabre, still sporting its…

    I know, we were all pretty disappointed when we found out that Scion wouldn’t be giving the world an FR-S turbo (or convertible). But prepare to be even more upset: if Toyota won’t build an FR-S turbo, that probably means Subaru won’t build a BRZ STI either.If you know anything about the joint project, Toyota and Subaru have practically been bickering since the day it came out. First it was over a convertible. Then it was over a four door. Then over a turbo version. And again over a second generation of the car.While Toyota wants one thing, Subaru wants another. And vice versa.RELATED:…

    The Audi A7 h-tron quattro concept has made its world premiere at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. This is a fuel cell car featuring 300 individual cells and four hydrogen tanks providing the concept with a maximum range of 500 km (310.7 miles).

The system is also used on fuel-injected vehicles with the only difference being the gasses are sent into the intake rather than the carburetor. It is a component of a vehicle’s evaporative emission control system and prevents the evaporating fumes from reaching the atmosphere while also maintaining proper fuel tank pressures.

So, they would ask their applicants who else in their home can drive and include the details of those people in their premium calculations. Including them would make sure that the company charges the right premium. Also, inclusions would reduce any arguments about who was insured or not. There have been cases in the past where the scope of the policy has been questioned by relatives on policyholders. It still may be possible to exclude a certain driver…

    I like reading publications about cars, and I absolutely love watching videos about cars. I am fascinated at car shows and mesmerized during factory tours. I’m always happy to meet people who are like-minded and equally as passionate. But, I hate one thing about the hobby in particular; something most of us have encountered and tried to avoid: the one expert who knows everything! Did I say “expert”? I mean the nimrod who goes on and on spewing misinformation and incorrect data. This is the person who isn’t into the hobby as deeply as I am, but says they are because it…

    And he wrote it in asphalt. We’ve all seen and loved Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos. They’re masterfully planned works of automotive hooliganism that take stunt- and performance driving to a whole new level. There are those that try to mimic and those that even call out Block in a playful way, like this shoeless Shelby GT500 driver. The video shows a shoeless driver speeding around an empty parking lot with a board full of sticky notes on his dashboard with instructions on what to write. There’s a lot of burning rubber, whining supercharger noises, and that oh-so-sexy V-8 exhaust note,…

    The first few times that I had to sell a car, the whole experience felt horrible to me. I didn’t like dealing with the general public. Especially those that pointed out every single problem about the car I was selling in the hopes of buying it for less. It was also annoying dealing with time-wasters and those that just didn’t have a clue about anything to do with cars. By the end of it all, I felt a range of emotions such as relief and exhaustion. But I didn’t let those experiences put me off selling cars in the future. Instead, I decided to find out how I can turn negative…

The system is also used on fuel-injected vehicles with the only difference being the gasses are sent into the intake rather than the carburetor. It is a component of a vehicle’s evaporative emission control system and prevents the evaporating fumes from reaching the atmosphere while also maintaining proper fuel tank pressures. The fuel vapor canister, also known as a charcoal canister because it is filled with charcoal, is…

Today’s feature bike is a scooter that definitely breaks the rules though. Built by Berlin’s premiere custom workshop, Berham Customs, this 1953 ACMA Vespa was given a new lease on life, showing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. From the start of the build, Martien from Berham Customs knew how the build should look: ‘I just wanted it to look like someone had found a 50 year old custom project and…

I think I would like to go for a full vintage look, using these bikes as the starting point for my ride. The New Hudson is the look I want to aim for, with a few mods to make for ride ability. The New Hudson is a stressed engine bike with an under slung tank, and total oil loss system. The biggest problem is the lack of a transmission, meaning that the rider has to push the bike to start it, and the lack of a drive system means the engine is either running or…

It wasn’t always that way, with Ducati starting out as an electronics and appliance firm. Oh how far they have come. In the mid 1940s, a Turin lawyer and a self taught engineer had an idea to build a clip on engine, that could be fitted to bicycles. By 1946, the prototype had been manufactured, the short muffler giving a yipping sound as it kicked over, the nickname given to the power unit was Cucciolo, Italian for ‘puppy’.

The quickest and easiest way to understand how metal shaping works on the granular level is by comparing it to pizza dough. The more you stretch it out, the thinner it gets and the excess material has to go somewhere (in the pizza's case its the rolled up crust) and the more you shrink the metal the thicker it gets and again it has to "go somewhere".

    More Powerful 2014 Jeep Patriot than Before. Jeep patriot was firstly introduced in the year of 2007. The features were attached next year, but these additions were not too much, even relatively small. It may just be the start of the 2009 model. There is a change that stands to be seen. The excoriation is the use of crummy creature plastics for the cabin. For the models of 2010, it has been given the 158 horsepower engine and 4-cyl. For the first touch, it could be coupled with the 5-speed manual. New to the 2014 models, there are striking changes in the use of a 6 speed automatic style. The…

  • More Than a Half Million Philadelphians Will Travel for Thanksgiving

    admin

    According to AAA, the roads will be packed with Thanksgiving travelers next week. They’re estimating that roughly half million Philadelphia-area residents will travel 50 miles or more over the holiday weekend — that’s the highest number since 2007. AAA is also estimating that 88% of those Philadelphians will travel by car. Many of these travelers are motivated by the recent drop in gas prices, allowing a larger budget for holiday travels. In fact, drivers will probably pay the lowest prices for gas over Thanksgiving in the past five years. The national average will be just…

  • Five Tips to Avoid Expensive Auto Repair

    admin
    4 Sep 2014 | 8:26 am
    Auto repairs are pretty much unavoidable — and we know that better than anyone! However, every repair doesn’t have to break the bank. That is, if you follow some simple tips throughout the year. Initially, this may not sound like a mold-breaking idea, but you’d be surprised how much small maintenance your overlook each year in the interest of your budget. However, these auto issues get worse over time and actually end up costing more. Additionally, we tend to get so frustrated over the repairs that we don’t always communicate clearly — leading to even more…
  • August: The Best Month for Car Buying

    admin
    11 Aug 2014 | 8:43 am
    For many years, we’ve heard rumors that it’s smartest to wait until the end of the year to purchase a vehicle. This makes sense, as dealerships are full of next year’s models by this point. However, new data from TrueCar suggests that the better deals may actually come in August when dealerships are relatively quiet. The TrueCar report showed that the average transaction price in August was $1,850 lower than the average in December. Actually, the July rates fall just behind August. This is likely because the shift in model year used to come in early fall months like…
  • Driverless Cars — Blessing or Curse?

    Google is transforming a futuristic idea into a real world invention. The innovation giant is collaborating with some big automotive names to develop self driving cars. They will have better GPS, cameras, and be better able to avoid collisions than the average human. These cars would be a great asset to police officers when pursuing criminals, however, many are raising concerns that the vehicles could be just as beneficial to the criminals. These driverless cars could be approved by the government and ready to hit the streets in less than seven years. The autonomous cars would be available…

    11 Nov 2014 | 1:49 pm
    Calculating Effective Labor Rate is a simple exercise that every Service Manager, Dealer, and GM should be able to do. 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…

    These days, there are a lot of companies selling their wares to attack the “digital revolution”. Some provide a superior product and can back up their results with data. There are many more that offer subpar or downright awful service and seem to actively hide their performance metrics. This seems like a foolish thing to do, since any vendor that you work with should be able to provide you with vast troves of data on your digital performance.

  • Shop Supplies – The Little Things Add Up

    Michael Larkum

    What do you include in your “Shop Supplies” expense area? Most dealers include uniforms, rags, job consumables such as lubricants, grinding discs, disposable gloves, and many dealerships regularly use it as a “catch-all” for items that probably should be expensed elsewhere. There is no written set of rules on what does – and doesn’t – qualify as a “Shop Supply”, so what goes into this account varies greatly. A comparison of dealers illustrates these major differences, with these expenses varying from a few hundred dollars to four or five thousand every month. Is this just a…

Car dealers have always been good at finding money, so once F&I profits level off what will be the next frontier for your profitability?

When it comes to hipsters and what they can afford to drive, they can be separated down into three categories-those who have money, those who don’t and those who pretend they don’t. With this in mind, hipster rides can vary from 1970’s vintage collector cars, to low-cost, mass-produced 90’s models…

It was not the idyllic life so often portrayed on TV, it was a hard life-physically, emotionally and financially. The hardships on the farm are what shaped our grandparents into Fixers. Flickr:…

Clearly shoehorning a Lamborghini engine under the bonnet of a Golf was never going to happen, so the engine resides instead at the back of the car, separated from the driver by a sheet of plexiglass.
