  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1961 Dodge Power Wagon

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Long a favorite of public works departments from coast to coast, the Dodge Power Wagon has earned a reputation for durability rivaled by few other four-wheel drive pickups. Finding reasonably clean survivors can be a challenge, since many were worked nearly to death, then sold to private owners who ran them until very little was salvageable. This 1961 Dodge Power Wagon, for sale on Hemmings.com, may be the exception to the rule, as it appears to be in better-than-average shape, given its five-plus decade life. Partially restored and mechanically sorted according to its current owner, the…

    Land Rover’s renaissance is in full swing. With a refreshed line of Range Rovers in showrooms, the brand is refocusing its efforts on its other product families. It’s starting with its newest and smallest vehicle, the all-new 2015 Discovery Sport. The recent Paris Motor Show served as the official coming out party for the new SUV, where the Sport showed off its fresh styling, new technology, and efficient powertrain. The Discovery Sport is also a vehicle that’s deserving of wearing the “Discovery” badge, brimming with true offroad capabilities. While the new Discovery Sport has…

    There are some cars which are so iconic that they help to define the culture of a given era. Think about the Bugatti Royale, Jaguar E-type, or even the Sierra Cosworth. These are vehicles that – even at first glance – simply could not have been conceived or built at any other point in time. … Continue reading →

  • Report: Mercedes-Benz confirms revival of “Maybach,” to debut with S-Class limo in LA

    admin
    22 Oct 2014 | 1:16 pm
    Ever since word of an S-Class limousine straight from the factory surfaced, there was much debate as to what it would be called. By tradition, it would receive something like Pullman or Maybach. But Maybach doesn’t exactly have the greatest reputation and wasn’t much of a success. Despite this, Mercedes-Benz apparently confirmed to be reviving the nameplate for that new S-Class limo. CARandDRIVER heard of its debut at this up and coming Los Angeles Auto Show next month. Speaking with Mercedes’ global head of design, Gordon Wagener, the S-Class limo should be about 5500mm…

    admin
    22 Oct 2014 | 11:56 am
    The next-generation BMW 7-Series often tends to set standards for Munich’s own and this latest development further supports this notion. According to CARandDRIVER, the next-generation 2016 BMW 7er will launch the Roundel’s new selection of modular inline-six engines. BMW announced a little more than two years ago to be designing a new inline-six with “modular architecture” to cut costs and to make them widely available for their entire lineup in various forms. CARandDRIVER wasn’t able to source any specifics, though this new line of mills should replace…

    Land Rover Defender fans just have to face the inevitable–the current Defender that we’ve all come to love and know is going to end eventually in the near future. And to celebrate its triumphant life, Land Rover’s SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division is building a special edition final model. The SVO-finished model will be a historic highlight by meshing various qualities between race-spec Camel Trophy truck and the Paris-Dakar variant into the current and aging model. In the same breath, Land Rover’s SVO head, John Edwards said we should expect more models as the…

    Audi’s been tooting its own horn in the field of autonomous driving as it recently celebrated the lapping of a completely autonomous RS7 around Hockenheim in Germany at “racing speed.” The stunt was a test to showcase Audi’s progress in autonomous driving and the RS7 completed a lap of Hockenheim in a reported lap time of just under two minutes. The RS7 was equipped with a range of GPS systems, WiFi connections, and an array of 3D cameras, all of which are programmed into an on-board computer program.

    Pricing and details for the next model-year 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Classic were announced and the new Beetle Classic, as it’s called, starts at $20,195. What is it? Well, it’s a Beetle for starters. And it’s being called the Beetle Classic because it comes with a simplistic look thanks to its vintage-style painted alloy 17-inch wheels, added rear spoiler, and the choice of three plain colors: Pure White, Black Uni, and Reflex Silver. Otherwise, the Beetle Classic comes equipped with Volkswagen’s standard 1.8L turbo-four with 170hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The insides…

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:10 pm
    Don’t you just hate it when you plan to screw your constituents out of nearly a hundred million bucks and you only get, like, half of that? A combination of salesmanship and greed led the city of Chicago to blanket the city with speed and red-light cameras. They were expected to issue over one million tickets a year. Estimates of Chicago’s population range between 2.6 and 9.5 million people, depending on how one defines “Chicago”. Unfortunately for Chicago’s embattled mayor, Rahm Emanuel, the motorist sheep couldn’t be sheared at quite the expected rates.
  • Fuel Prices Leave Efficient, Greener Offerings On The Lot

    Cameron Aubernon
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Falling fuel prices are helping to drive sales of SUVs and trucks as of late, but at the expense of more efficient, greener offerings. Automotive News reports dealers flush with fuel efficient and alternative fuel models are dropping truck-month style incentives on the hood to help move them off the lot. KBB.com notes that the Toyota Prius and Ford C-Max alone have seen increased incentives, with the latter jumping from $2,650 last September, to $4,900 this past September. Meanwhile, strengthening fuel efficiency targets may lead to automakers producing vehicles that, according to Kelley Blue…

    When Daimler begins production of its next-gen Sprinter, quite a few of the vans will be leaving an assembly line somewhere in North America. Automotive News reports the partial shift in production will help the automaker “cover the growing demand for large vans in the North American market economically” by producing them locally “in the NAFTA region,” according to Mercedes’ head of vans, Volker Mornhinweg. Presently, the U.S.-bound Sprinters are made in Dusseldorf and Ludwigsfelde, Germany, then sent over in CKD form to Ladson, S.C. for reassembly. Around 23,000…
  • Junkyard Find: 1990 Toyota Cressida

    Murilee Martin
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    The Toyota Cressida was very reliable (partly because first owners tended to be the types who did regular maintenance) and held its value well, so it took until about a decade ago for them to start showing up in cheap self-service wrecking yards in large quantities. We’ve seen this ’80, this ’82 this ’84, this ’86 wagon, this ’87, this ’89, and this ’92 in this series so far (plus some bonus Michael Bay Edition Tokyo Taxis, courtesy of Crabspirits), and these proto-Lexus big Toyotas just keep rolling into America’s wrecking yards.

The selection of long wearing low profile all season tyres in 45 series is pretty slim. The four cylinder version of my Camry has 215/55/17 tyres on 7×17 inch rims and the selection of long wearing 55 series touring tyres is much better. My question is, since I am not really a ‘sport driving type’, would it be better for me to find a nice set of wrecking yard alloys and downgrade to the smaller rim/taller sidewall size tyres?

    2015 Porsche Carrera GTS  Porsche has announced the second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS, ahead of its arrival in showrooms this November. ‘Gran Turismo Sport’– The combination of letters originates from the 904 Carrera GTS, a racecar dating back to 1963 that could also be registered for use on public roads. In the 1980s and 1990s, the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was reborn in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently applied to the ‘Type 997’ 911 Carrera and the Panamera. With the new model, Porsche is extending the GTS principle…

  • Weave Come So Far: BMW, Audi, and German Consortium Developing Carbon Fiber That’s 90 Percent Cheaper

    Clifford Atiyeh
    22 Oct 2014 | 1:33 pm
    BMW and Audi want to cut carbon fiber production costs by up to 90 percent within six years—and they’re already halfway there. The two automakers, bolstered by funding from the German government and working with 86 other partners including Airbus and ZF, are part of a $102 million research consortium whose goal it is to make still-exotic carbon fiber more viable for mainstream manufacturing. By 2020, the group, dubbed MAI Carbon, hopes Germany will be the center of carbon fiber research and development, and also wants to drive down the material’s cost so that automakers and…

    The wonks from Woking yanked a sheet from their new P1 GTR back in August at—where else?—the Pebble Beach festivities in California. We were there for the unveiling, but the P1 GTR’s ultra-mega-blackout windscreen restricted any and all ganders at what lay within. Helpfully, McLaren has finally released images of the plutocratic track-day special’s interior, as well as details of the driver training package that comes included in the big Macca’s purchase price.

    Were you even surprised? Yes, Ford Motor Company is bringing a veritable “stampede”—its words, not ours—of modified 2015 Mustangs to this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas. Given that last year, Ford stuffed something like 7000 cars into its Las Vegas Convention Center display area, the idea that it’s bringing “over a dozen” tuned-up Mustangs seems almost tame. The sheer number of cars might seem manageable, but these Stangs will be anything but broken-in show ponies. So far, Ford is previewing just two of the cars, one tuned by Galpin Auto Sports and the…
  • Dodge Viper’s $15,000 Price Cut Boosts Monthly Sales by Nearly 200 Percent—to 108 Cars

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:14 am
    Last month’s decision by Dodge to slash prices on the face-melting Viper by $15,000 seems to be paying huge dividends: Sales of the car jumped by 184 percent in September. That doesn’t mean you’ll be seeing Dodge’s V-10 brute on every street corner, though. That huge percentage jump translates to 108 Vipers sold in September, up from 38 in August. The Viper has never been intended to sell in huge numbers, but 2014 has not been kind to the Mopar snake. Chrysler temporarily halted Viper production in April due to an unsold backlog, and the plant has worked only 10…

  • Car Tech Spotlight: 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Fender Bassman Subwoofer

    Doug Newcomb
    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Stereo systems from automakers have gotten so good that it’s often difficult to justify replacing or upgrading the audio components with aftermarket gear, which used to be de rigueur for discerning music lovers. But even as factory audio systems have improved, the weakest link — and the most frequent aftermarket upgrade — remains the need for better bass and a separate subwoofer. Automakers and their technology partners have responded to this shortcoming with dedicated and often larger subwoofers that can pound out low frequencies. Examples include the 10-inch Rockford…

BMW’s two-year research project will study what the automaker calls “highly automated” driving on highways in Beijing and Shanghai. The project will include a number of prototypes that will use digital maps, GPS, radar and cameras, and BMW is partnering with the Chinese internet search company Baidu to provide mapping and cloud services for the vehicles.

Instead, Toyota said it will focus on advanced safety and convenience features that can assist drivers by taking over braking and steering. “Toyota’s main objective is safety, so it will not be developing a driverless car,” Seigo Kuzumaki, Toyota’s deputy chief safety technology officer, said at a seminar outside Detroit last week, which MSN Autos attended.

    While some sort of “eco meter” is now found on many vehicles, which allows drivers to instantaneously check how their driving style affects their fuel economy (and pocketbook), some of the displays are getting even more granular. For example, a 2015 Audi A3 I recently tested had an “efficiency program” display as part of the driver information system in the instrument panel that, of course, shows current fuel economy. But it also displays how certain car features — such as air conditioning — influence mpg. It uses distance traveled and consumption data from the trip computer…

Well, the first thing is that it has twice the horse power of most Formula One cars I have driven before, or fact any single seater apart from Indianapolis cars, which are rather different in that they are very high geared and never normally drop below 140 mph. In itself the extra ... Keep reading

    Tesla Motors unveiled a dual-motor electric vehicle on Thursday as well as a number of driver assistance features. With some of the panache of an Apple product launch, Tesla founder Elon Musk unveiled an all-electric Model S sedan with an additional front motor and drive system.  The new vehicle will be more powerful and have all-wheel drive. While the Model S is the first all-electric production vehicle with dual-motor all-wheel drive, other cars also offer such a system including gasoline-electric hybrids from Lexus and Acura.  Such a system is also available in the new BMW i8 and Porsche…

    Winter is approaching faster than many of us even realize. With all of the positive fun and festive parts of the holiday season comes the additional risk of illness. Illness can quickly spread in a dealership, taking out many of your employees, and also increasing safety risk in a time when you are short staffed and your employees are not at their normal 100%. Instilling good health habits at your dealership will allow you continued success throughout the winter season. Here are some common sense tips to minimize the spread of illness: Stay home: whenever possible, avoid contaminating the…
  • Is it Illegal to Ask about Criminal History on Job Applications?

    Kathryn Carlson
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:25 am
    In past years it was common for potential employers to ask about criminal history on applications. However, in recent years this standard has begun to evolve. Since 2011, eleven states have imposed a law against inquiring into criminal history in this first round of hiring. Many similar bills are pending as this movement gains momentum. Companies often have legitimate reasons for inquiring after criminal history, such as filtering out individuals who may be at a risk for security or who have created crimes that would affect day to day business, productivity, and profit. While these reasons…

    As auto marketers start gearing up for 2015, news from the car industry continues to be good: car sales are expected to hit 16.77 million this year, outstripping both last year’s rate and the consensus forecast. But why stop there? The improved economic environment allows for opportunities on a number of fronts, from add-ons to leasing to a diversified product range, all of which can be bolstered through highly targeted marketing.

  • Closing & Golf: Same Strategies – Same Challenges

    Joe Verde
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:26 am
    Closing is defined as everything you say or do that moves the sale forward. In golf, games are won or lost around the green on the shortest shots, not on who can hit the ball the farthest on the first shot. The same is true with closing – “What’s the best closing question?” is the most common question we get. Like those short shots, closing is all in the details, not in one big question. Everything affects your sale – without exception. That means everything you do makes closing easier, tougher, and sometimes impossible, even when people really want to buy. Everything from your…

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

    Chris Haak
    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…

With an all-new Mustang about to hit the streets, Ford is eager to begin making special editions with its new blank canvas. 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. It remains to be seen whether there will eventually be a GT500, Super Snake, KR, Bullitt, Mach 1, Boss 302, or even Warriors in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness model, but we’ll start with the 50th anniversary…
  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Toyota Camry

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:33 am
    Having a track record of success can lead to complacency. Success is not easy and is not typically sustainable without considerable effort. In Toyota’s case, having the Camry as the best-selling car (note: full-size trucks kill it in sales) for the past dozen years allowed it to take its eye off the ball for the past few. The new-for-2012 Camry attempted to add a nicer interior, more style, and better performance, but competitors are constantly upping their game, and the 2012 Camry was not setting the class benchmark. It remains to be seen whether the new 2015 Camry does until we have…

    Things are rolling along, but this first Honda Civic HX build is taking me way longer than I expected. Needless to say, I’m immensely grateful to be able to chase this story. 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.

    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…

    Last spring, I ran a Kickstarter campaign to get a new video series off the ground. Ain’t Fuelin’ is a show unlike any other. At its core, it asks a simple question: is it possible to increase the fuel efficiency of an older vehicle and to what degree? But it wraps that question in a bigger idea, specifically: can you bring new life to old paint by infusing high tech on a low budget? Ain’t Fuelin’ draws inspiration from a host of big time shows that paved the way, from Overhaulin’ and Mythbusters to Pimp My Ride and Top Gear. It’s been a long time coming…

Restomodders update yesterday’s hot rides using the coolest technology from today, without performing major sheet metal changes … vehicle bodies look close to period stock, with faded paint on the skin hiding state-of-the-art mechanicals. Valvoline’s Reinvention Project takes restomodding to a whole new level, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson – two of today’s biggest NASCAR stars…

  • 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR Test Drive

    9 Oct 2014 | 10:30 pm
    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…
  • Kia GT Fastback Slated for Production

    9 Oct 2014 | 8:30 pm
    According to Edmunds, Kia has greenlit the GT Concept for production. 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.

    Because it's smaller and less expensive than its big-brother Quattroporte luxury sedan and more practical and MUCH less expensive than its GranTurismo coupe and convertible cousins, this 2015 Maserati Ghibli (starting from $66,900) is the storied Italian automaker's most important new model in many years. Its iconic Maserati grille and triple front-fender air vents, its sculpted curves and creases, its fluid coupe-like roofline, its classic trident logos and its sinewy athletic stance add up to a unique blend of Italian sportiness and elegance. Precious few four-doors come even close.

Then again, maybe this is just a photo from the beginning of the test and the Seattle Municipal Archives just chose not to upload the photos from the aftermath. Anyway, what do you see here?

    Long a favorite of public works departments from coast to coast, the Dodge Power Wagon has earned a reputation for durability rivaled by few other four-wheel drive pickups. Finding reasonably clean survivors can be a challenge, since many were worked nearly to death, then sold to private owners who ran them until very little was salvageable. This 1961 Dodge Power Wagon, for sale on Hemmings.com, may be the exception to the rule, as it appears to be in better-than-average shape, given its five-plus decade life. Partially restored and mechanically sorted according to its current owner, the…

  • Visions of Zeroes

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    By John Carr, NMA Massachusetts Activist You may have heard that New York city cut the speed limit from 30 to 25. That won’t have any effect on safety. I don’t think Mayor de Blasio is dumb enough to think it will. It’s a symbolic gesture — saying “Vision Zero” gets him some media time — or a revenue grab. According to NHTSA, two thirds of fatal accidents could not be prevented by driving slower. Their figure is based on police reports. While individual reports are unreliable, the composite figure is plausible. So why all the talk about speed? Because we can…
  • New Car “Buyers”

    NMA
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:29 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Who can afford to spend $30,000 — the average purchase price paid as of 2013 — on a new car? The answer is … very few. Most new car “buyers” are in fact debtors. They sign loan documents and make monthly payments. Typically, for five years, the length of the average new car loan. Some extend this to six years — and seven years is not unheard of. Some of you may remember when the typical new car loan was three years. What’s happened? Several things. First — and most obviously — cars have become more…
  • Lexus: The NX Best Thing

    NMA
    17 Oct 2014 | 6:53 am
    By The Car Family Angular, modern and stuffed with electronics, the Lexus NX has brought into the world a crossover utility vehicle that is designed for the modern family. An exclusive extended test of this newest Lexus was enough for us to note that this all new model is comforting, quiet riding, and sharp looking, both literally and figuratively. Smitten, you bet. And reinforcing that glowing feeling was the fact that the NX is probably going to be priced well under $40,000. The NX’s forte is not acceleration, although the F Sport model is a temptress within limits. The NX also lacks…
  • NMA Reboot: VMT Tax to Start Up in California

    This weekly post features recent news stories that highlight and update themes previously covered throughout NMA E-Newsletters and Alerts. Editor’s Note: With the stroke of a pen, Californians will be subject to yet another onerous transportation policy in the form of Senate Bill 1077. Signed into law recently by Gov. Brown, SB 1077 creates a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax pilot program. VMT taxes are schemes that use various tracking techniques to charge motorists based on how many miles they drive. Supporters claim a VMT tax is a more equitable and efficient alternative to the gas tax.

Invoking the spirit of the legendary McLaren F1 GTR that dominated sports car racing in the mid-1990s, the P1 GTR was unveiled in Monterey this past August in concept form, giving us an idea of what to expect. But now McLaren has given us a little more. Envisioned as a track toy for the wealthy who want to play racing driver, the P1 GTR is a further evolution - and a more extreme one - of the road-going…

Over a dozen of them are arriving from top aftermarket outfits like Galpin Auto Sports, Steeda, Roush and others. The Blue Oval isn't just shining a spotlight on the V8 model, though.

  • Why Do Many Teens Refuse to Buckle Up?

    Kristin Varela
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:58 am
    One of my earliest childhood memories is loading up as a family into my dad's wood-paneled Jeep, and hearing, "The car won't start until everyone has a seat belt on." That, and if we wanted to turn the light on in the back, we had to blow on it really hard to wake up the little light-keeper woman that lived inside (thanks for that one, Dad). Because seat belt usage was so ingrained growing up, I've never gotten into a car without buckling up, which makes it that much more shocking that so many teens drive and ride seat belt-less today.

  • Camouflaging 2016 Chevrolet Volt

    30 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    The styling of the next-generation Chevrolet Volt is one of the automotive world's best-kept secrets. Keeping customers and media eager to see the successor to the groundbreaking original at bay until the new Volt debuts at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January is tricky business.   First, it is engineers, not designers, who are charged with creating camouflage that balances styling secrecy with the need to validate the Volt and its systems in public.   "If it were up to me it would be a shoebox driving down the road," said Lionel Perkins, GM camouflage…

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:53 am
    The Toyota Camry continues to be a dominant player in an increasingly competitive segment. Yet that dominance has often bewildered competing brands considering that the Camry has long been viewed as a bit stodgy. For years Toyota attempted to make the Camry appeal to the widest group of consumers possible, and that made its styling plain and undistinctive. While it certainly has continued to be successful, Toyota took plenty of criticism from consumers and critics alike, which prompted a new direction for the 2015 model year. Despite continuing success in sales, Toyota decided to infuse a bit…

    While the Infiniti brand is increasingly known for performance, it doesn’t boast much of a racing heritage. The brand does sponsor the famed Red Bull Racing Formula One team, but outside of that it hasn’t been too active in the world of motorsports. That’s about to change however as the brand is set to become more active in international racing. Nissan’s luxury arm has just announced that it will enter the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2015 with a pair of Infiniti Q50 sedans.

    The recently refreshed 2015 Honda CR-V has just been named Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year. While Honda’s venerable CR-V isn’t all-new for the upcoming model year, the crossover was able to snag the coveted title thanks a wide range of subtle but critical improvements that helped it beat 18 other all-new or redesigned SUVs. Among the biggest improvements was the addition of a continuously variable transmission that replaced the CR-V’s 5-speed transmission. This component helped contribute to better fuel economy than the previous model year. Additionally, Motor Trend editors noted…

    22 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    When gas prices hit or exceed $4 per gallon, the cost to fill up my Audi Q7 gets scarily close to $100. I drive to conserve fuel by accelerating slowly, cruising on the highway at about 60-65 miles per hour, and not letting the engine run to warm up the car in the driveway. At my local Costco this weekend, I pulled up and saw what I thought was a price of $3.94 on the pump’s display. Closer inspection showed a price of $3.44, and I nearly jumped for joy. Fifty cents per gallon, at about 18 gallons, saved a good nine dollars and made me a happy dude. Gas prices are falling across the…
  • Comparing Sound: Mustang Against Hellcat

    Active Noise Control sounds like a feature you would want on your next car. The name implies that the car actively controls the noise you hear, or don’t hear, while driving. That’s accurate, but Ford this week is catching all kinds of negative attention for the feature, which comes standard on all 2015 Mustangs equipped with the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. You see, Active Noise Control doesn’t limit the sound coming into the cabin, it creates it. Since a 4-cylinder doesn’t sound like a muscle car, Ford pipes in some satisfying engine notes to make things feel like…

    Showdowns between Porsche and Corvette always end in Porsche’s favor. The word “always” is a dangerous one to use, but in this case it fits. There hasn’t been a time that I can recall when a Chevy Corvette has beat out a Porsche 911 or even a Cayman. I suppose a Corvette vs. Cayenne showdown might end in Chevy’s favor, but that’s not a track competition anyone’s been too interested to complete. European handling and balance of power simply destroys the American Corvette’s horsepower advantage. Every time. Well, until now. Chevrolet has…

    There’s been quite a bit of debate as to where electric cars will fit into the consumer car market in the next few years. Tesla’s recent announcement of their P85D shows that electric cars are starting to infiltrate even the ranks of performance vehicles. Although there have been a number of additions to the EV category in recent years, a lot of people still question the practicality of transitioning to a purely electric vehicle. Battery charge times and driving range on a single charge certainly leave a lot to be desired. These are legitimate concerns, but automakers are making…

    Diesel-powered cars should be the wave of the future. Electric vehicles have the distinction of being able to run on zero fossil fuel, but the production of electricity itself requires all kinds of dirty energy. Yes, it’s pretty cool to drive without any pollution, but how many tons of coal have to burn for the privilege? That’s a discussion that won’t be resolved by a single blog post, but it’s the reason diesel-powered vehicles should be given a second look before buying electric. Unfortunately there’s still a shortage of diesel cars in this country, but…

The subject of the postcards: France in the year 2000. The idea caught on and Russian and German prints were released in the years that followed. The result, a number of incredibly awesome new modes of transportation. The world would be so much cooler if this is how we got around.

    Although we’ve not got a patch on the Americans, we British do love our big cars. Jeeps and Land Rovers have been extraordinarily popular in the UK for decades, and even though the city car has risen in popularity recently, there’s still a huge market and demand for people carriers or MPVs. The innovation in this particular market is extraordinary.

    Having to make repairs to your vehicle or replace car parts can be a nerve-wracking experience, particularly if you’re not a particularly knowledgeable motorist or mechanic.

    Damage to a windshield can be both annoying and potentially dangerous if it isn’t fixed in a timely manner. Once a chip occurs it’s very easy for it to spread. If this happens when you’re driving you can see the potential dangers that may occur. Taking all this into account it can seem unfair that windshield repair is not necessarily included on your car insurance.

    My son is 21 now and no longer a teen driver, but this is still a subject that is close to my heart: More teens die in motor vehicle crashes than from any other cause of death, about 2,500 per year. Fatalities are split almost equally between teen drivers (56 percent) and passengers (44 percent), and in half of the fatal crashes, the teen was not wearing a seat belt. Teen Driver Safety Week gives me a regular reason to visit this topic, and remind young drivers to be safe every week of the year.

As new technology makes it harder to steal cars the old-fashioned way, today’s thieves are using more sophisticated “white-collar” methods to get their hands on a set of wheels, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).   The NICB and its law enforcement partners report a growing number of these cases which, in legal terms, constitute financial fraud. Therefore, these stolen vehicles are not counted as auto thefts -- which may partially account for the steady decline in auto theft crime statistics over the past two decades. Over the next few months,…

    A scholarly fellow once said camping is 90-percent preparation; the rest depends on how well you deal with ghost stories, bug bites, and eating beef jerky for three days in a row. I'm not much of a camper, so I expect I'd be the one complaining about being dirty and cold. However, OnStar is all about helping you be prepared and connecting you to the right people, so they teamed up with camping expert Perry Keydel to share camping tricks and tips for your next outdoor adventure.

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Former Williams and Jordan engineer, Sam Michael is set to leave the McLaren Formula 1 team at the end of 2014. Michael was McLaren's sporting director since the end of 2011. Autosport magazine writes that Michael handed in his notice in March this year as part of a long-term plan to move back to his native Australia with his wife Vanessa and their two children. The team mentioned that Sam Michael was departing "on extremely good terms" and the 43-year-old Australian will attend this season's remaining Grands Prix with McLaren-Mercedes before leaving.

Reuters reports that the green cars are scheduled to leave Caterham's Leafield factory bound for Austin this weekend. But the man appointed to oversee the administration of Caterham Sports Limited, reportedly a separate company to the F1 team but also based at Leafield, is warning he will not be releasing the cars amid a legal dispute.

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM Michael Schumacher's former manager doubts Sebastian Vettel can emulate the F1 legend's success at rebuilding a beleaguered Ferrari team. Willi Weber, also known as the lucrative 'Mr 20 per cent' after brokering Schumacher's mammoth Ferrari contracts, is worried quadruple world champion Vettel's personality might not be as suited to the task. Ferrari is expected to confirm German Vettel's arrival as departing Fernando Alonso's replacement in the days before the US grand prix. Famously, in 1996, his countryman Schumacher similarly arrived at Maranello as the reigning champion and…

Mercedes, which will supply engines to its own team [Mercedes AMG Petronas] next year plus Force India, Williams and Lotus, claims it would not be fair to let rivals Ferrari and Renault work on…

    Frankie Muniz shared a photo (or two since he can't seem to get the whole car in one photo) of his Shelby Daytona Coupe recently.  It's no secret that Frankie enjoys fast cars because just about every time we've featured him on the blog in the past, he's getting pulled over. Muniz spends most of his time racing cars and playing music. Muniz started racing in 2005 when he won the Toyota Pro Celebrity Race and raced for the next few years.

    When miMOTIVE – a Founder Institute startup – was kickstarted as an idea a few months ago there was still some debate as to the real value of automotive content. Should automotive professionals really act as content providers? Is automotive expert content a legitimate investment? And don’t even mention the topic of ROI.

    There is nothing elegant about this imposing Toyota. When Toyota introduced its 4Runner 30 years ago, it was on the leading edge of what became known as the SUV craze. Thirty years later, with the heyday of the SUV shrinking it is still as competitive and capable as it was three decades ago. The current Toyota 4Runner is no looker. But it more than compensates with its off-road capabilities. These trucks were created with a particular focus on heavy-duty off-road driving, where the 4Runner is right at home. Like its name implies, 4Runner is still a multi-use vehicle that is designed for more…

    2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost While the headline to this piece is a bit sensationalist, it is worth pointing out that the way Ford is representing the engine noise of the new 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is disingenuous. If you have yet to hear about this new Mustang model, it features a 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine, which brings the Mustang back to the world of turbo. But despite that sounding like a downgrade, the Ecoboost boasts an impressive 310 hp and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. It also gets 32 miles to the gallon on the highway, which is the best of any pony car this generation. So while…

While splitting responsibilities can make sense, both partners should be involved in important financial decisions, says The New York Times. In the event of an emergency, you may be required to assume full responsibility for household finances, which means it’s important for you and your partner to stay on top of the family’s money…

  • Japanese Convertibles: The 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II and 2014 Lexus IS 350 C

    Chris Brewer
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:08 am
    If a car and guitar could be distant cousins, I think the DNA of this mint condition all-original 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II RS440 and equally spotless 2014 Lexus IS 350 C convertible would reveal a genetic match. Both were built by influential and best selling Japanese companies that have flourished in the US market, Ibanez and Lexus are known for enduring quality that ages well and, when cared for properly, provides decades of service. The Ibanez Roadstar II RS440 was built in 1985 at the Terada Plant in Nagoya, Japan by the now 102 year old Terada Musical Instrument Company and exported to…
  • 2015 Toyota Camry First Driving Impressions

    Malcolm Hogan
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:20 am
    I can remember a time when I considered buying a Toyota Camry. I am not sure what was going through my mind at the time, about to tie the knot and set sail on a new life. Maybe it was the pressure of starting a family, or maybe I didn’t want the hassle of settling on a vehicle I wasn’t too sure would last me many years into the none-single life. Either way, the Toyota Camry was a fall-back, a no brainer in my situation, that I could bank on being a constant in my new relationship. I knew, without a doubt, that the Toyota Camry was something almost everyone has experienced, even if you…

  • Asgard Performance Bi-Turbo VW Golf

    admin
    21 Oct 2014 | 3:15 pm
    There are some radical engine swaps made on VW Golfs, but this is the first time we see on of this on a VW Golf Mk4. 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.

First up, the Golf VII GTI has received a more aggressive body featuring carbon fiber front spoiler lip, side skirts and rear lip along with a roof-mounted wing and a vented hood also made from carbon fiber. It now benefits from a titanium exhaust system which is 50 percent lighter than the stock stainless steel exhaust together, along with a stage two induction and remapped ECU which has bumped output of the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from 230 HP (169 kW) to more than 290 HP (213…

    With the increase in racing seats, bolt-in roll cages and other race-inspired modifications within the Volkswagen scene, we’ve seen our fair share of deleted rear seats and false floor kits. We can certainly appreciate those who have gone the DIY route, but after seeing the kits available from Euro Kreations, we have to wonder why you’d want to. Starting at $279 and available for the third, fourth, fifth and sixth generation Golf and GTI (as well as the first generation Audi TT), the Euro Kreations kits are an extremely clean way to fill the void left after a rear seat removal.

Anything from the desire to tick off some kind of bucket list, through to scene acceptance, or indeed, good commercial sense. In the case of Milltek’s managing director, Steve Pound, there’s more than a hint of the latter…

    Reader and Seattle photographer Yours by John recently went on a sick photoshoot with twin orange Audi RS5s and was kind enough to share the pictures here – just in time for Halloween! You may remember John from his Sepang Blue RS5 feature as well as his Sprint Blue B7 S4, but as they say “orange is the new black” and this photoshoot delivers with not just one but two Solar Orange Rs5s… John met up with several RS5 owners near the Snoqualmie Falls area of Washington to take these pictures, then edited the photos afterwards to give the neat effects posted here.

    This latest featured ride comes to us from Norway and is modded to the max! The owner Steffen bought the car with some mods already done to it, but as many enthusiasts know there is always more to be done. Steffen started with the interior, scouting some beautiful RS4 bucket seats off ebay.de from a totaled RS4. Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…

Captured by CarAdvice’s spy photographers entering Jaguar Land Rover’s test facility at the Nurburgring in Germany, the test vehicle wears plastic camouflage on its bonnet, door, side, tailgate and rear bumper panels.

  • 2015 Audi A6 Review

    Alborz Fallah

    The 2015 Audi A6 update brings incremental improvements to the engines, transmissions, active safety credentials and cabin technology, giving the four-ringed brand more ammunition to use against its rival German and British manufacturers. Like most mid-life updates from the Ingolstadt-based manufacturer, changes to the A6’s exterior remain minimal, in this case bringing about a sharper front and rear-end design in line with Audi’s evolving company look. That said, these exterior changes result in the A6’s length increasing by 17mm. Will the changes be enough to see the A6 return…
  • Daimler sells its stake in Tesla but will keep collaborating

    Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler AG has unexpectedly sold its four per cent stake in “bold partner” Tesla for about US$780 million ($890m), but will retain its collaboration with the Silicon Valley brand.  The cash injection will be pumped into Daimler’s operational business. The company says it will continue to source EV powertrains for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive, which is on sale in the US and soon will be in Europe, from Tesla.  Mercedes-Benz has previously sourced batteries for its Smart Fortwo electric drive from Tesla.

The Japanese car maker followed up last week’s shadowy image with another equally veiled shot today, though digitally brightening it brings much of the car’s design into focus. Nissan’s signature squared-off V grille dominates the front end. It’s flanked by a pair of sharply cut horizontal LED headlights that flow into the concept’s muscular front wheel arches. The rear shares its phantom pillar and floating roof design with the new…

  • 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…
  • The MINI One 3-door Hatch is the real Special One

    You could spend an awful lot of time and money ‘upgrading’ your new MINI 3-door Hatch. I had a play with the online configurator and it wasn’t long before my £16,450 Cooper D was the wrong side of £25,000. 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.

    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…
  • Local radio station under fire for misleading listeners

    A local radio station came under fire today amid claims it had deliberately misled its listeners, encouraging them to enter a competition under false pretences. Letchworth-based Garden FM, the self-proclaimed home of “Inane chat and hopeless drivel”, used a premium rate phone line to support a competition to supposedly win a brand-new Volvo XC90. But to the horror of the listeners, who were also expecting an all-expenses skiing trip in The Alps, the actual prize was something much less exciting. In fact, the real prize was quite terrifying. Rather than the all-new Volvo XC90…

    Ahead of its launch at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, PetrolBlog has obtained exclusive information on the all-new Vauxhall Viva. So far, Vauxhall has only released a single teaser image and a few lines of marketing guff, so this is proper, hot-off-the-press stuff. Only it came via fax. Speaking to a chap known only to us as ‘Phil’, who curiously was wearing a faded-blue Ford Rallye Sport bomber jacket, the all-new Vauxhall Viva will share much in common with the original car, first introduced in 1963. This must be true, because a Vauxhall press release said so: “Designed for…

  • Rally is More Than Driving Fast

    Brian Driggs
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    I know, I know. Rally is about driving fast. 10 years fairly immersed in the sport has shown me it’s about so much more, though. It’s about control. Vehicle control. Self control. We rally fans sometimes point out that, while a Formula 1 driver might see a corner 50 or 60 times in a race, a rally driver is likely to see 50 or 60 corners just once. What’s more, the rally driver has only the verbal instructions of his co-driver as a basis for proper setup into each corner.  There is such an incredible amount of trust involved in rally. Think about it for a minute. The driver has to trust…

This is huge, because knowing how to work on our own vehicles usually means we’re spending the money we save (and then some) on improving them. And, as anyone who’s ever built a legitimate race car will tell you, playing by the rules gets expensive quickly. We’re all familiar with how quickly performance modifications add up to big money. What’s the saying? Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go? I know, right? For a minute, forget about any and all performance modifications to your would-be rally…

Unless you’ve ever actually volunteered at a rally, you don’t know the half of it.  Don’t get me wrong. Rally is epic; the pinnacle of motorsport. I don’t care what they say about F1.

    Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button were smiling at sunny Monza on Saturday afternoon, after locking out the front of the grid for the Italian grand prix. It was Alonso’s first ever pole in a red car, and Ferrari’s first qualifying triumph in 30 races. The result is also Button’s first front row of the season, as Lewis Hamilton in the sister McLaren was left ruing a setup “mistake”. He was running without McLaren’s famous F-duct, while Button stayed with the concept despite having to use an unconventionally big rear wing for the ultra high speed circuit.

The styling lasted well, and it’s rather a modern classic now. In 2007 an all-new XK was unveiled, and this time they were even faster and more powerful than before, and a change of ownership also meant no more raiding the parts bin hence meaning a more refined and classier cabin too.

    This particular Ford model is the alternative to the 1.5 Ecosport 1.5 litre diesel. Some experts were not particularly fond of the diesel version, so is the petrol version any better? The car was inspired by the idea of the ‘Ford One’, a strategy to make all models adaptable for all worldwide car markets. Initially, the car was sold in Brazil, starting from 2003. It was very suited to the country, given the conditions of roads. The added height to the ride made driving in the country a lot easier. Ever since then, the B-segment crossover market has recently taken off throughout the world.

    Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Automotive High School car show in Williamsburg Brooklyn. It was the first time I attended the show and am I glad I went. Besides the Cadillacs there were a lot of other classic cars that were real beauties. There were about 10 classic Cadillacs in all at the show. Below is a little video I took of a 1954 Cadillac which you have seen on our site before. A 1983 Cadillac Seville which really shined very nicely in the sun. The 3rd Cadillac in the video is a 1966 convertible.

    Editor
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:03 am
    As of October 1st, the good old fashioned car tax disc – first introduced way back in 1921 – has been officially retired.  It is no longer a legal requirement to have the disc displayed.  Today, we’re going to go through the changes and take a look at the changes you'll need to make. So, what’s happening to the disc? Car tax discs are no longer to be issued, and it is no longer a legal obligation to display one in your front window.  This will be the case with both vehicles that have been exempt from the charge and those that have not (previously, even…
  • Diesel or petrol: making the choice

    Editor
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:53 am
    One of the first decisions that you have to make when picking up your first car is whether you want to go with a petrol vehicle or a diesel one.  Today, we’re going to take a look at the differences between the two, and which one is likely to suit you best. The price difference In the UK, diesel can be more expensive than petrol, with fuel pricing favouring the latter.  As well as this, the advances in petrol engine technology has led to increased levels of efficiency, bringing it closer to diesel.  As a result, the diesel premium – typically between £1000 and…
  • A guide to buying a salvage car

    25 Sep 2014 | 3:38 am
    At ASM, we work to provide modern motorists to help them manage their driving finances.  Car salvage auctions are one of the main services that we offer, and we’re going to use today to take a look at how any driver can benefit from them. So, what is a salvaged car? Put simply, a salvaged car is one that an insurance company no longer considers fit for use on the road, in its current state.  If the total damage exceeds a certain percentage of the value of the car (ranging from 75-90 percent), it will be declared a ‘total loss’ by the insurance company and sold to…

    Employers and the government should be doing more to ensure that work-related road safety prioritised alongside traditional health and safety, a new report has argued. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) spoke to both the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the Centre for Transport Studies at University College London (UCL) to evaluate the current management of occupational road risk in the UK. The report assesses the progress made in recent years by employers looking to manage the risks that their staff face whilst driving for work. It makes various recommendations,…

    The best thing about moving. The thing about things that you need is that you use them. You obviously don’t need them if you don’t use them. That seems like a logical correlation, doesn’t it? When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store.

    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…

    It’s a situation that burns people with a sense of right and fair play: seeing seemingly non disabled drivers parking in clearly marked Disabled Parking spots. Invariably, there’s no indication of a sticker inside the car, a requirement in order to use these spots. Unsurprisingly, when these drivers are talked to by security personnel, there’s an unleashing of swearing and attitude that would shame an old salt. Yet, like so many things we see on the roads nowadays, there’s no need for this, there’s no need for this attitude. and the NSW state government appears…

Having never driven a Volvo before and having only one driving experience, that with Robert Dahlgren and the S60 Polestar as part of the 2014 Top Gear Festival Sydney, it’s with an open mind that the XC60 is approached. The Donk. The XC60 tested has a frugal, 2.0L, four cylinder diesel, with peak power being 133kW, at a high (for a diesel) 4250 rpm. There’s significant twisting force on offer, with 400 torques between 1750 to 2500 revs.

However, the preceding near eight hours had seen scenes unprecedented in the history of V8 Supercars. In fact, the days leading up to The Great Race witnessed just how cruel “The Mountain” can be to drivers, both veterans and inexperienced. On most days of the year,…

This should be an on-going practice within every dealership, certainly within the first few days after incentives have been released and throughout the month to stay current with any special event promotions on their site.

I made my seasonal visit to the Farmer’s Almanac site for winter 2014 prognostications and here are just a few of the regional descriptions for this year: bitter cold and snow fall in New England, wet and white for eastern seaboard, piercing cold for Midwest. Had enough? We urge all of our clients to regularly touch base with their customers through Service Newsletters.

  • Renaultsport R.S. 01 makes its track debut

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:59 am
    Renault’s new Renaultsport R.S. 01 race car has completed its first laps in public. The appearance took place last weekend at Jerez, during the final World Series by Renault meeting of 2014. Driving duties were entrusted to four-time Formula One champion Alain Prost, who unsurprisingly described the R.S. 01 as “magnificent”. Well, he was hardly likely to be critical… The R.S. 01 has been created for next year’s inaugural Renaultsport Trophy championship. Built around a lightweight Dallara carbon fibre monocoque chassis, it’s powered by a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 engine that…

  • New entry-level Toyota GT86 announced

    19 Oct 2014 | 2:57 pm
    Given the Subaru BRZ’s recent price reductions and range revamp, Toyota’s decision to do something similar for its virtually identical GT86 comes as no surprise. The BRZ is currently available from £22,495, so to match that figure the 2015 GT86 line-up gains an entry-level Primo trim grade which carries a £500 discount for a limited period. Its standard equipment includes Bluetooth, a Toyota Touch multimedia system, tyre pressure monitoring, 17” alloy wheels and faux carbon fibre dashboard trim. In fact, compared to a regular GT86, the Primo only misses out on non-essentials such as…

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:41 am
    A couple of new variants are joining Peugeot’s 308 line-up. The first, called GT Line, replaces the Feline trim grade. Its look is meant to imitate that of the recently-unveiled GT performance version (pictured below), so 18” ‘Diamant’ wheels, a rear diffuser and twin exhausts adorn the exterior. The cabin meanwhile gains front sports seats with a massage function, plus part-Alcantara upholstery. Whereas the ‘proper’ GT is available with 202 bhp (151 kW / 205 PS) petrol or 177 bhp (133 kW / 180 PS) diesel engines, Peugeot is offering the GT Line with a selection of three less…

    On-board POV-style fun. Have you ever seen a Ferrari LaFerrari in your rear-view mirror? If you have been lucky enough to bear witness to the Italian masterpiece behind your car, you know that it doesn’t stay there for long. One driver took his friend and a cockpit-mounted camera out to Monza for a few laps in the Ferrari LaFerrari for all of our (and his) enjoyment.

To celebrate their 150th anniversary, Martini renewed their partnership with Porsche in 2013 and their iconic stripes adorned many of the German racecars. The livery was worn by many Porsches as they took home many checkered flags throughout the automaker’s history, and thus became a favorite among enthusiasts. Even today, Porsche offers Martini racing livery on a few of their models, the most notable of which is the 918 Spyder.

It is an automated system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking which were practiced by skillful drivers with previous generation braking systems. It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control…

It had been passed over by many people who had thought nothing of it, but none of them had a vintage motorcycle they were having trouble disassembling. The problem i was facing was that the metal used in the manufacture of my engine is very low quality, making it apt to crack if forced. The wooden wedge looked soft enough to aid me. I took the piece home, and in less than 10 minutes I had removed the cover, then found the wedge handy in holding the crank from…

    7 Oct 2014 | 8:45 am
    The Race of Gentlemen or "TROG" has by far become my favorite automotive event of the year and this year was no exception. TROG is a perfect example of a small low-key event that's kept true to their roots. Even with all of the exposure and hype surrounding this year, Mel and the Oilers CC/MC did a great job keeping the race feeling as low-key and laid back as the first. This year the guys really worked hard to turn this event into a full fledged weekend event, with things to do all weekend. I decided to stay the entire weekend and see and do as much as I could.

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.

    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…

    Scientists have been trying to figure out how to power cars using hydrogen for years, and have been struggling.

However, there may be a new solution. Scientists from Benaras Hindu University in India have come up with an idea – coconuts. What makes coconuts a good option for hydrogen-powered cars?

    Pennsylvania law states that any DUI re-offenders must serve two months in jail for the second offense and an additional year for every following offense, in addition to having his or her license suspended. However, this law hasn’t prevented a former CNN courts commentator from being arrested for drunk driving five times within a year, and never serving more than 10 days in jail. According to an article on Philly.com, Joseph Lawless was able to find a loophole in the law that allowed him to plead guilty as a first time offender for each case of DUI.

    The consumer has long presumed that a low emission vehicle may deliver less power and possibly less fun, but offer drastically improved fuel economy in return for any inconvenience. The data company, Emissions Analytics http://emissionsanalytics.com/, has challenged this concept, stating that most small engine cars seem to produce worse fuel economy than their manufacturer’s claims represent. How much worse? Let’s say that your typical low emission vehicle with less than a 1-liter powerplant claims to provide up to 60.3 mpg on average. This might be true in a perfect world void of…

    Recently, I discovered a beautiful book of photographs – “The Silence of Dogs in Cars” – by photographer Martin Usborne.  Usborne poetically captures the quietude of dogs, locked away behind closed car doors as they wait, resigned, and sometimes, with frightened anger, for their owners’ return.  Even when the subjects of this book are barking ferociously at some unseen stranger, their bark is muffled and eerily silenced. Usborne was inspired by memories of waiting alone in the car when he was a kid, for his parent’s return as they ducked into stores for a quick shop.  Kids are…

The record $38m paid recently for a Ferrari 250 GTO matches perfectly with the reg 25 O. It’s no surprise then that the auction this September skips to 26 O to allow for a November match-making! For those that are unaware, November 1989 marked the first regular DVLA Auction of “Cherished Plates”, making November 2014 both the 150th Auction in the 25th year since it all began. September’s Twickenham sale therefore represents “just another…

    The DVLA carefully tiptoe down the line between good and bad taste. Their decisions spare us those up and coming registrations that may cause offence. Just recently, they spared us WA11 KER at the last minute, only to change their mind a couple of months later and let the Walkers of this world bid £6,900 on top of the £16,000 for W41 KER back in 2000. The felt-tip brigade were, on this occasion, ignored! It remains to be seen whether December sees OH15 EXY hit the heights or the can when the “15” range comes out. As a guide, TO05 EXY made £12,000 at auction in 2006 –…

    This one-of-a-kind McLaren P1 with Cerberus Pearl paint finish belongs to professional baseball pitcher (and part-time amateur photographer) C. J. Wilson. A five-year, $75 million contract is more than enough to do anything you could ever dream of doing, so knowing Wilson prefers to hit the road in his new McLaren P1 with his Canon 1Dx in tow might just make him our new favourite celebrity car enthusiast. You can check out the rest of Wilson’s photography portfolio here. #NoFilter Mine. #mclarenp1 @mclarenauto Cerberus Pearl A video posted by CJ Wilson (@cjwilsonphoto) on Oct 10, 2014…
  • Watch the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept lap Hockenheim

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:07 pm
    The Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept has completed its autonomous lap of Hockenheim unscathed over the weekend, and I for one welcome the new era of autonomous motorsports. It’s definitely a strange sight to see the 412kW saloon at race speeds without a driver behind the wheel, but perhaps even more strange is how standard the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept appears on the inside. That’s because aside from a few extra cameras, the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept utilises most of the standard RS 7′s existing systems like electromechanical power steering.
  • Citizen pulls over cop, lets him off with a warning

    I’m sure many drivers have fantasized about pulling over a cop and giving them the third degree, but that’s just what this law-abiding citizen did after his complaint about unlawful unmarked police cars fell on deaf ears. The fast-talking citizen in this clip is Gavin Seim and according to him (along with Washington State law 46.08.065) it is illegal for a police officer to operate an unmarked police vehicle unless they are using it for “special undercover or confidential investigative purposes”. Now this is where the entire premise of stopping the officer becomes a…

  • Ford’s Halloween car wash prank is pure evil

    George Skentzos
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:20 pm
    A drive-thru car wash is a pretty creepy place to be even at the best of times, but throw in an axe-wielding maniac and you have a recipe for a seriously terrifying prank that no air freshener is going to hide. Ford told 30 strangers to stop at a car wash on their way to a filmed test drive, but Ford had other plans and prepared the car wash for a seriously evil Halloween prank. We want to assume the victims are all paid actors because we can’t imagine a huge company like Ford risking the bad press from giving someone a heart attack, but you can judge it for yourself.
