    Our industry source who reported that Nissan would use an old version of the Frontier has reported back to us with some bittersweet news. The reported next-generation Frontier, which would have been based on the bones of the old, first-generation Frontier, has been abandoned. According to our source, bringing the old technology up to modern crash standards was too onerous a task, and the costs were simply too high – even with using an already paid for architecture. The big issue at hand is this: Nissan still wants to have a small, basic, fuel-efficient affordable truck, since they see…
  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?
    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…

  • Report: Volkswagen AG apparently considering renaming themselves Auto Union

    28 Jul 2014 | 5:51 pm
    Australian outlet GoAuto apparently learned that Volkswagen AG executives are mulling the possibility of renaming themselves as Auto Union, the original name for what is now known for modern day Audi. Volkswagen AG has grown to be one of the largest automobile conglomerates in the world with Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda, and Volkswagen as well as Ducati, and several commercial truck brands under its umbrella. Though it wouldn’t be entirely historically accurate since the original Auto Union didn’t include Volkswagen until Auto Union changed to Audi…
  • Kia updates the 2015 Soul with some new options

    28 Jul 2014 | 3:55 pm
    Kia recently rolled out some changes for the 2015 Soul. Though because it was already redesigned for the 2014 year, the updated are rather minor to ensure the model stays extra competitive. The biggest change is the inclusion of Kia’s new UVO1 eServices Package as an option for the base model, with a variety of tools for road-side assistance, mainly aimed at first-time young drivers. For the higher end Plus and Exclaim models, the UVO1 eServices Package comes standard, offering traffic and weather information, up-to-date fuel price, sports scores, stock information and more.

  • Subaru teases new WRX S4 concept via image

    25 Jul 2014 | 4:31 pm
    Subaru is gearing up for something big as the Fuji Heavy Industries-owned manufacturer released a teaser for a Japanese-only WRX S4 model. According to recent reports, the new sedan is set to debut on August 25th of this year and is most likely a domestic version of the 2015 WRX sedan. The latest 2015 Subaru WRX and WRX STI were revealed last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show and is currently on sale in Australia and the United States. Power is supplied by the traditional 2.0L turbocharged boxer-four with 268bhp and 258 lb-ft of torque for the standard WRX.  
  • Report: Another rumor points to BMW turbo four and supercapacitors for new Supra revival

    25 Jul 2014 | 11:19 am
    Another rumor is out from, who claims that the new Toyota Supra successor is set to be revealed in the next few years. BMW and Toyota’s collaboration isn’t news, but everyone seems to be shooting speculation out of their arses, left and right, and this latest development is not much different. For this report, BMW is alleged to offer a 2.0L TwinPower turbo four-banger with direct injection, mated to a gearbox also supplied by Munich’s finest, which isn’t entirely accurate since all of the transmissions are sourced either from Getrag or ZF–and…
  • Aston Martin teases new Lagonda sedan, but nobody except Middle East will get it

    25 Jul 2014 | 10:12 am
    Aston Martin has been known to be working on a new Lagonda sedan, rumored as a replacement for the current and soon-to-be outgoing Rapide. Now, Aston actually teased the official model, though interestingly, the British luxury sports car maker said only the Middle East will get the model. It’s said to be a very bespoke product, most likely funded by the rich and deep pockets of various sheikhs, princes, and oil tycoons out in the dusty deserts. The new Lagonda gets its backbone from the brand’s latest VH platform and is built with carbon fiber body panels. No technical…

  • European Review: Peugeot 208 GTi

    Vojta Dobeš
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:05 am
    The Peugeot 205 GTI is one of the legends of hot hatch history. It took off where the original VW Golf GTI started, with sufficient space and practicality, lots of speed and a reasonable price. And it was even more fun to drive. With about 120 horsepower and weighing under a ton, it was quite quick for 1980s, and its tail-happy attitude gave it the reputation of a challenging car to drive. Its fondness of going through the hedges backwards may helped its popularity – people like to think that they are better drivers than others, and driving a car notorious for unforgiving handling can thus…

Jalopnik subsidiary Truck Yeah! reports the 2015 Vito — part of Mercedes’ V-Class — can be had with RWD and AWD — like the V-Class — as well as optional FWD. The previous Vito had FWD for only the EV variant, while the new one puts diesel power to the front of the line alongside the rest of the family. Autoblog adds said power comes turbocharged…

    Words and Photos: Michael Juergens from Quattroworld Many people dream of the open road, but they are stuck forever in traffic. I didn’t have the freedom of empty Nevada highways. My daily commute restricts me to Boston traffic. This slow, deliberate time allowed me to get a feeling for the car in an everyday setting. Sitting in traffic with the RS 7 certainly allowed for some time to reflect. The seats are comfortable, and they provide just the right amount of support whether I was sitting in traffic or driving spiritedly. Pulling the gear selector back and moving into drive (instead of…

  • Price Check: Mercedes Prices All-New 2015 C-class Sedan, GLA-class Crossover

    Erik Johnson
    30 Jul 2014 | 3:55 pm
    Mercedes-Benz is smack in the middle of a product offensive, and we now know how much two of its upcoming weapons—the all-new 2015 C-class sedan and GLA-class small crossover—will cost. With the CLA-class now occupying the bottom rung of the Benz ladder, the C-class no longer has to serve as the brand’s price leader. Having a littler brother also freed it up to become larger and more luxurious, and MSRPs are commensurately higher than before. For its part, Mercedes claims that far higher levels of standard equipment mean that the cost hasn’t increased much at all. The C300 and C400…

    The first new model to debut under Infiniti’s reshuffled alphanumeric nomenclature scheme, the 2014 Q50 takes the spot formerly held by the G37 sedan. As Infiniti’s torchbearer in the competitive entry-luxury sport sedan segment, the Q50 was tasked with covering a lot of product bandwidth for the brand. Thus, when the revamped Q50 hit the ground at the 2013 Detroit auto show, it brought with it the announcement that a hybrid version would be available for 2014. Our interest was piqued–eco-posturing aside, what driver benefits would a hybrid Q50 offer that weren’t already present in…

    We put about 4500 test miles on our Jeep Cherokee four-door and found it to be a strangely loveable vehicle. The basic Jeep Wagoneer from which it springs has been with us for a very long time, but somehow the Wagoneer never captured much front-of-mind awareness. We watched Joe Foss driving one across the Golden West on Sunday-afternoon television, and we saw sort of gray, hard-to-classify suburban burghers hauling their families around in them, but the Wagoneer never seemed like a contender. It never jerked you around and forced you to speculate about how you and it might get along—the…

    Call me jaded, but it has been a very long time since I have seen a concept car that had me literally begging the manufacturer to build it. At last Fall’s Tokyo Auto Show, I actually begged Nissan’s global VP of design to build the car. I put my Platinum Visa on the table and told him to take a deposit. I want Nissan to build the iDX NISMO that badly. The fact that they brought BRE Datsun leader, designer and photographer extraordinaire to the party just sweetened the pot. The problem is that we haven’t heard much about the iDX since those buggers at R&T actually drove…

    Doug Newcomb
    30 Jul 2014 | 6:31 pm
    If you’ve used a smartphone or tablet, you’ve probably also used multi-touch gesture controls to, say, decrease the scale of a navigation map by pinching the screen or moving the map by swiping it with a finger. It’s a quick, easy and intuitive interface, and one that’s increasingly coming to cars. Cadillac was the first car brand to use multi-touch control with its CUE system in the XTS, and Tesla also included it as part of the huge in-dash display in the Model S. Now Subaru has added it to the all-new 2015 Legacy and Outback with the navigation option on its seven-inch display. I…

Using a laptop plugged into the data port under the dash of the two vehicles, they demonstrated how hackers with similar access could wreak havoc, ranging from honking horns to disabling brakes.

    Like any technology, self-driving cars could potentially lead tomore driver convenience – and a lot fewer crashes – but also to some unintended consequences. One of these, according to a recent FBI report, is the potential for criminals and terrorists to abuse autonomous cars to more easily do their dirty work. In the unclassified but restricted report obtained by British newspaper The Guardian, the FBI said “the risk that distraction or poor judgment leading to collision that stems from manual operation would be substantially reduced” by self-driving cars.

    The 2014 BMW i3 at the IAA BMW announced the BMW i DC Fast Charger, a new product that is capable of charging a BMW i3 all-electric vehicle’s battery up to 80% in 30 minutes.  The company plans to make the new charger available in all BMW charging centers in the United States beginning this August. The BMW i DC Fast Charger will be half the size of a traditional electric vehicle charger, which normally weighs about 100 pounds (45 kilograms), and, at a price of $6,548, significantly less expensive than other chargers currently on the market.  The new 24-kilowatt charger can be mounted on…

    The arrival of our 2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTec 4Matic was heralded by not one, not two, but over a dozen major snowstorms and blizzards. As we noted before in these pages, it wasn’t the most optimal time to begin life with a long-term test car but those were the cards we were dealt. The Benz followed our long-term Chevrolet Cruze Diesel into service by roughly one week and it took a while for us to really get to know it. The E250 BlueTec is new for 2014, introduced in conjunction with a refresh of the E-Class family. Indeed, the facelift was rather extensive and the car bears only a…

Faced with a plethora of data, many automotive marketers are struggling to know what to do with it all. Here is where customer profiling comes into play. As the name suggests, the method consists of grouping your customers into a set of representative profiles, replete with name, picture and bio, in order to both hone and streamline your marketing decisions.

  • No Matter What You’re Selling, This Strategy Should Do the Trick

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    No matter what you’re selling, this strategy should do the trick, according to Entrepreneur. There are no shortage of instructional sales books. In fact, there are probably too many. The difficulty with most of the books is that they tend to teach you how to follow a process or structure that can limit your ability to think on your feet or adjust to a dynamic situation. A little bit of structured selling isn’t a bad thing, but following steps that someone designed to sell to a certain type of buyer isn’t going to provide a perfect fit for every situation. The reality is,…

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.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    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…

  • 2015 Chrysler 200 Rated at 36 MPG Highway

    2 Apr 2014 | 2:51 am
    While it might have been hard to image a Chrysler that could hit the 36 mile per gallon (MPG) mark just a few years back, the engineers have nailed the number with the 2015 Chrysler 200. But fuel efficiency is just the starting point for the completely redesigned model. The 2015 200 is new from the ground up, packed with technology, and brilliantly executed. It’s time to leave your impressions of the outgoing model (and the Sebring on which it was based) behind. The 2015 puts Chrysler into the thick of the hotly contested mid-size sedan market. The new model is available with a…

    Used car guide CAP said today the large numbers of new cars financed on PCP will not lead to oversupply in the future.

In January this year KPMG raised concerns over the impact PCPs would have on residuals.

    The pressure on floor space for BMW dealers is being ramped up again with this month’s launch of another new model range, the X4. The X4, priced from £36,590 to £48,990 is a sports activity coupe, pitched against Range Rover’s Evoque and the Porsche Macan. Mechanically the newcomer is effectively the familiar X3 compact SUV, but repackaged in a coupe bodyshell to ally it to the 4 Series line. It measures up just 14mm longer than the X3, at 4,671mm, but is 36mm lower, at 1,624mm. The X4 goes on sale with a three-way engine choice, all diesel and all matched to the xDrive all-wheel-drive…

  • Jaguar XE Aims for 75 MPG

    31 Jul 2014 | 12:30 am
    Jaguar’s upcoming XE will be the most economical car ever built by the company, estimated to deliver 75 MPG on the EU combined cycle. The small sedan will be made primarily from lightweight aluminum, with a new line of efficient engines. The 75 MPG figure will be much different when the car is eventually tested in the U.S. because British gallons are measured differently, and they use different fuel economy tests than the EPA does here. Estimates put the new XE likely around the 50-60 MPG mark in America, but even that is a shaky guess at best. Regardless, the stellar fuel economy of…

The test is seen as one of the most challenging in the industry, especially for small cars, which tend to have natural disadvantages compared to larger vehicles. The small overlap test, which made its way into IIHS testing in 2012, involves a car striking a solid barrier at 40 mph, with the impact taking place on just a quarter of the vehicle’s front end. Designed to simulate hitting a tree or a large pole, the test is…

    As of this year, the Ford Mustang, the prototype, archetype, and trope maker of the "pony car," has been in production for half a century.

It was quick, it was fast, it was comfortable, it was expensive, it was gorgeous, and it was absolutely perfect. In its era, it was a part of a super-car renaissance. Much like we are experiencing today with Porsche's 918 Spyder, McLaren's P1, and Ferrari's LaFerrari, the 959 took on the best the world had to offer in the form of Jag's XJ220, and Ferrari's F40, though it did so in a very different way. Rather than attack the problem of achieving 200 miles per hour with brute force and gobs…

However, this week, tomorrow night in-fact, OVERHAULIN' will feature its first ever Porsche in the form of a 1962 356. While the promo video below suggests it will get the "full Foose treatment" the work is actually done in conjunction with Rod Emory of Emory…
  • This Is Why Jeff Zwart Chose BBI Autosport To Build His Pikes Peak Cup Car

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Earlier today Jeff posted a link to a video on his facebook page. The link brought us to a video filmed in Ultra High Definition by director Will Roegge; it's the inside story of BBI Autosport and the incredible Porsche Cup car they built for Jeff to run at Pikes Peak this year. In Jeff's own words it's a "Really nice 'behind the scenes' of what it takes to get a car to the summit of this famed mountain and the team that BBI Autosport creates to make that happen." I don't know about you, but I just don't get tired of these "behind the scenes" type of films, especially when it involves Pikes…

    Remember back to March of this year, and you may recall a certain beautiful Porsche 959S going up for sale at the Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction.

    If you want to keep your old Ford or Ford-powered machine running as good or better than it did from Ford, then legendary flathead guru Vern Tardel, as the title of this handy series of how-to booklets suggests, is here to help you do just that. We have, in fact, already taken a look into these booklets back around issue No.3 or No.4, in the December 2011 issue of Hemmings Motor News.

  • Muscle village, 1980

    30 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    We’ve seen these photos floating around the Internet for a while and have traced them back to Blog dos Carros Antigos, which didn’t note the ultimate source of the photos or where they were taken, only that they were taken in 1980. We figure somewhere out West, given the ARCO gas station across the street from the dealership. It’s a fascinating look at the lost years of American muscle cars, in the years after their heyday but before the first muscle car collector craze of the 1980s. What do you see here? And does anybody know where this dealership was?

Colt made a fortune in business, though his success came primarily from banking, not the manufacturing of firearms. As was the rage in his day, Colt ordered a custom-built motorcar for a grand tour of Europe; settling on a Mercedes with a body by Parisian coachbuilder Vanvooren, Colt and his family took delivery in June of 1912 and retained possession of the car until 1937.

    Michigan boasts one of the most notorious speed trap hot spots in the country: the area immediately surrounding the Detroit Municipal Wayne County Airport. In fact, three of the top five speed traps in the state, all in the city of Romulus, ring the airport. Also note that the city’s ex-police chief, Michael St. Andre, recently pleaded guilty to charges of embezzlement, misconduct in office and conducting a criminal enterprise. One wonders if the predatory traffic enforcement will subside. This information comes from the NMA’s National Speed Trap Exchange (, a…
  • Inflation and Oil Changes

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist They tell us inflation — the benign-sounding word used to euphemize the deliberate devaluation of our money by simply creating new money (pieces of paper) out of thin air and flooding the economy with it — is “only” running about 2 percent of so annually. If so, why has the cost of a quart of oil gone up by, oh several hundred percent? I’ve done a lot of oil changes over the years. A quart of high-quality non-synthetic oil cost less than $2 a quart when I was in college in the ’80s. That same quart of oil today costs…

I’ve owned (and driven) a lot of vehicles that didn’t work — which can be exciting, in good ways and bad — depending on when and how they stop working. Toyotas hardly ever stop working. They are relentlessly reliable (ask anyone), pleasant to drive, unobjectionable to look at and rarely surprise you with things you didn’t expect. In other words — boring. That works for a lot…

Sure, it had most of the E92 coupe’s marvelous suspension bits, as well as its howling 4.0L V8, but it also had a folding hardtop (and all the associated sensors, servos and other bits that went along with it) that added a chest-clutch-worthy 441 lbs. to the coupe’s roughly 3,500 lbs. curb weight.

    Vehicles Affected: Nearly 5,000 model-year 2013-14 Chevrolet Caprice police vehicles manufactured between June 7, 2013, and May 29, 2014, and model-year 2014 SS sedans manufactured between Sept. 13, 2013, and March 4, 2014 The Problem: The windshield wiper motor gear teeth may strip, causing the windshield wipers to not work. This would prevent the clearing of rain or snow and reduce the driver's visibility, which increases the risk of a crash. The Fix: GM will begin notifying owners in early August, and dealers will inspect the wiper module assembly and replace any affected ones for free.

    Believe It Or Not: Ferraris, Rolls, Lambos... & A DeLorean Live HereInto The Vault A back road street in Brooklyn on a boiling summer’s afternoon is not exactly where you would expect to find a hidden treasure trove. This isn’t Williamsburg, where hipsters drive Mercedes-Benz W123s, or Park Slope with its stylish brownstones and Audis. This is the part of Brooklyn where you do not walk alone after sunset. It’s so far off the beaten path that you cannot see the path from here. Yet here I am, peeking through a garage door at the tip of the iceberg – a Rolls in slightly less than…
  • V8 Swapping: Choose Your Weapon

    V8 Swapping: Choose Your WeaponFrom Dearborn to Munich Ah yes, the V8 swap – it’s been around since the days when Ford Flatheads first started finding their way off the assembly lines in the 1930s. A lot has changed in the automotive industry since then, but despite massive advances in technology the good old V8 swap has never been more popular than it is now. So with that in mind and our V8 Swap theme going on right now, we thought it’d be fitting to take a look at a handful of the world’s popular V8-based retrofit choices. This by no means represents every V8 choice out there, but…
  • Don’t Hate On V8s

    Dino Dalle Carbonare
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Don't Hate On V8sEight Is Better Than Four, Or Is It? I’m going to be blunt about this. I don’t get the resentment that some of our V8-swap posts usually get. Seeing that I predominantly cover the Japanese scene, this is a solution that isn’t quite so popular in this part of the world yet. The Japanese have been modifying and fine tuning their small displacement turbocharged engines ever since they came to be, so dropping a big capacity V8 into any car is still pretty unusual. But not bad – not at all. In fact, it’s seen as something pretty cool, and why the hell shouldn’t it be?

    Big-Boost Chevy V8 Meets Mitsubishi EvoMysterious Ways Coming from New Zealand, the sight of an early Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution isn’t all that uncommon for me; we have always had a love for the rally-bred, all-wheel drive 2.0-litre turbo machine, and a good proportion of the world’s early Evo supply can be found in our little part of the world. I was part of the Speedhunters team that hit Gatebil Rudskogen recently – it was my first time there and it’s fair to say that the entire tuning landscape was a complete change for me as most of the Japanese machinery I’m more accustomed…

    There is no doubt about it, fans of motor sport are often spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting their preferred classification. From Formula One racing to rally driving, there are a fascinating range of disciplines that feature various vehicles without ever compromising on adrenalin pumping excitement. The sheer level of this diversity can cause some racing classifications to become easily overlooked, however, as they lack the exposure or financial backing or more popular alternatives. Take drifting, for example, which relies on a driving technique where a motorist intentionally…

Packing either a six-speed manual, complete with a downshift throttle blip, or a seven-speed dual clutch, the power plant under the hood doesn’t disappoint. In a way, BMW has harkened back to its roots, reintroducing the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe to the engine that landed BMW on the performance car map, the inline six. Now, it’s a 431HP twin-turbo, a slight increase over the V8 it replaces, spinning up to a maximum 7,600 RPM. But torque is…

    I pulled up to the bank yesterday and parked nose to nose with a Mercedes-Benz. It was kind of weird at first glance but I only looked for a moment and didn’t give it a second glance until I passed it again, on foot, on the way into the bank. The car was an “Anniversary Edition,” at least according to the crudely applied stickers near the front fender. That’s when I paid more attention and realized the car wasn’t a Mercedes at all. It was a Kia. That first glance made me think the car was a 2004 E-Class, nothing particularly special, but nice. The second glance…

Convertibles are truly great to drive in the summer, and you’ll feel great doing it. The last few years have produced some amazing convertibles. We visited this topic last year when we looked at Seven Stylish Summer Convertibles Under $10k. We found that there are still a lot of great choices at very affordable prices. And…

  • Drive Safer in the Dark with Night Vision Safety Technology from AutoLiv

    Brandy S
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:49 pm
    If you've ever driven on a poorly lit road after twilight, you know how hard it can be to see either animals or pedestrians in the dark. Collisions with pedestrians are a major cause of death, with more than 100,000 people killed each year worldwide. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Association says that the risk for fatal pedestrian accidents is almost four times greater at night than during the day, and each year more than 4,000 pedestrians are killed at night, just in the United States. If you've ever seen a fox, deer, or other nocturnal animal flash across your headlights on a…

And yet, 17 such deaths have already been reported in 2014. To raise awareness of the dangers of leaving kids in hot cars,,,, and many other child-safety advocacy groups, mark July 31 as Heat Stroke Prevention Day to educate parents and caregivers to prevent children from being left alone in a hot vehicle.

  • How Hill-Hold or Hill-Start Assist Technology Makes Steep-Road Starts Safer for Drivers

    Brandy S
    28 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    It's a scary moment for any driver when you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator on an incline and the car begins to roll backwards: Nobody likes the anxiety of that panicked glance in the rearview mirror to see "just how close is that car behind me?" And wondering "How fast can I pull away on this steep hill?" isn't much fun either. While sturdy torque converters used to keep automatic-transmission-equipped cars in place on an incline, today's newer automatic transmissions are more fuel-efficient and tend to rev lower, which means they can slip more. And so these days, we're…

  • F1: ''Magic paint'' to give Ferrari power boost

    30 Jul 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM Marussia has led the way for a reported 20 horse power boost for struggling engine supplier Ferrari. That is the claim of Italy's authoritative Autosprint, claiming that at the forthcoming 'power circuits' at Spa and Monza, the Maranello team might have to thank its diminutive customer for a fistful of extra speed. Reportedly, the clever solution gets more horse power out of Ferrari's turbo V6. It is simply what correspondent Alberto Antonini refers to as a 'magic paint' that is applied as a shield to deliver more heat to the turbine. Autosprint said Ferrari engineers first wanted…

Over the last half-decade, JLR has shot up from near extinction to being stars of the silver screen, the track, and the road. Nowadays, they're leaving marks everywhere they go. One of the cars credited with putting Jag back on the lips of potential buyers is the new XK, launched in 2007 and penned by the famous Ian Callum.

    From GMM F1 team bosses are heading for a clash with Bernie Ecclestone over the shape of the next grand prix calendars. It has emerged that Mexico is joining the schedule next year, and Azerbaijan and possibly New Jersey in 2016. That would blow the number of races out from 19 - comfortably under the Concorde Agreement limit of 20 - to a potential 22. But actually, according to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, the newly agreed commercial agreements with F1 chief executive Ecclestone in fact allow for a new maximum of 22 races.

Cons: Acura engineers should probably abandon the 2.0L SOHC engine, which sorely lacks power. Moreover, the Dynamic Package is not available with an automatic transmission.

    28 Jul 2014 | 3:18 pm
    When Lexus made the decision to make their brand more performance oriented it was a good decision. Many luxury buyers are looking for sport and luxury in the same package. That’s what Lexus has produced in their F-Sport models that give buyers both. This week we’re testing the new 2014 Lexus IS350 F-Sport 2-Door Convertible ($46,990). This model targets the ultra-competitive sport compact segment that the Germans have owned for decades. Can the IS350 F-Sport compete with the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG?  Lexus isn’t resting on their past success in the luxury…

    24 Jul 2014 | 1:56 am
    This year, July 23rd marked a major celebration for a fictional protector who has fended off the most heinous criminals. Sometimes called the Dark Knight or Caped Crusader, the legendary comic book crime fighter is well known as Batman. Back on this day in 1939, DC would probably have no idea of the cultural significance the Bob Kane created character would carve out over three-quarters of a century. Transitioning beyond comic books, Batman has driven television, movie and game content. Along a 75-year journey of fighting for the salvation of Gotham City and often the world, Batman would…

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:00 pm
    The second-generation Smart ForFour has a lot of redeeming qualities about it. The fact that it’s bigger than the ForTwo is already a plus on its own, but its front section also looks a lot more modern than I thought it would. So yeah, I’m a fan of the ForFour and I’m actually excited to hear that Smart decided to introduce the ForFour’s own "Edition 1" model.It’s just like what big brother Mercedes has done with some of its recent models, only with a Smart badge. But don’t let the badge fool you because the ForFour Edition 1 is actually a pretty cool model…
  • Video: Ford GT GT3 by Lambda Performance Sounds Brutal

    Production of the Ford GT may have ended in 2006, but the American supercar is still roaming the streets and charging the tracks in 2014. After many successful racing seasons throughout its production years and after, the race-spec GT is still alive and kicking, thanks to a number of companies, with one of them being Lambda Performance.Still racing GT3-spec versions of the Ford GT, the German outfit had a successful ADAC GT Masters campaign in 2013, when it won three events. The Ford GT faced stiff competition from newer vehicles like the Corvette Z06.R, the Porsche 911 GT3 and the Audi R8…

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    The Toyota GT86 was launched in 2012, along with its Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S siblings. Although the GT86 was only sold in Europe, both the BRZ and the FR-S arrived in the United States for the 2013 model year. All three sports cars share the same 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, boxer engine that delivers 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant mates to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic and enables each of the triplets to sprint from naught to 60 mph in 6.9 to 7.6 seconds, respectively. Far from being one of the fastest sports car on the market, the Toyota GT86…

    Car wrapping is a delicate art that sometimes requires restraint. Lose it and your work becomes a little too abrasive. Hold off on the art and the product could look pedestrian. There are only a few companies in the world that can expertly strike a balance between the two and one of them is Fostla.De. The German tuner is one of the best in the business at this and recently, the company presented a new program for the BMW X5 that embodied the tuner’s affinity for car wrapping.

    BMW’s teaser showing what appeared to be a high-performance version of the 2 Series coupe turned out to be nothing more than an M235i, and not the M2 we were hoping. Fortunately, the photo was actually previewing a two-minute video showing BMW’s latest driftmob in Cape Town, South Africa. What’s a driftmob, you may ask? Well, it basically consists of several vehicles, in this case M235i coupes, drifting together based on a specific, preset scenario.For this epic driftmob, BMW also brought together some of the best drifters in the world, including world champion Rhys Millen…

Current uconnect firmware - is the radio firmware part of that or is that separately upgradeable ? thanks ! Seedar.

Some of the latest IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) crash tests have really pushed the envelope in some extreme circumstances to put cars to the test.

    We are previewing the all-new 2015 Lexus NX in Nashville, TN this week and so far it seems to be an attractive and aggressive-looking vehicle. In what appears to be an aim for Lexus to target a younger demographic with the NX, TRD (Toyota Racing Development) in Japan has spruced up the NX even more with some added aggression using the F Sport version adding on a body kit, rear diffuser, chin spoiler, quad exhausts and a set of 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. The TRD kit is said to cost about $3,360 and an additional $4,280 for the 19-inch forged wheels. It looks… interesting. No word on if…

    There is still much unknown about the yet-to-be introduced Jaguar XE other than it is due to be slotted as their new compact sports sedan aimed at the BMW 3 Series and other vehicles in that highly competitive segment. Details of the all-new Jaguar XE, suspected to arrive early 2016, are slowly emerging as we get our hands on the idea of the XE getting more than 62 mpg (over 75 mpg for European NEDC combined cycle standards / 62 mpg for US standards) from one of its powertrains. Of course, with numbers like 62 mpg, that suspected powertrain is thought to be a diesel. The other engines, though…

    About 6 months ago I replaced my Milltek Resonated exhaust for a STaSIS resonated one as I thought the Milltek was too quiet, so it’s long overdue that I share my thoughts here on how that went. If a picture is worth 1,000 words then I’m hoping this video is worth a few more: The Sound Overall, the sound was exactly what I was hoping for – much more aggressive than stock, slightly more aggressive than the Milltek, but overall still refined and not over the top. The exhaust is actually loudest below 2,000 RPM and has a deep bass/baritone note to it, but at cruising or highway…

    The OEM Floor Mats on my beloved 2006 Audi S4 had seen better days, so when ECS posted about their newly released Schwaben Floor Mats with red piping, I thought I’d give it a shot. At just $45 for an entire set, it was a lot cheaper then new OEM floor mats (around $200) and I thought the red accents might be a nice touch (they also come in all black, if you’d prefer). Although shipping was fairly steep at about $15 (about 33% of the part itself!), it was still a very good deal all said and done. They snap into place reusing the OEM grommets and the fitment is very OEM-like. After…

Founded in 1999, STaSIS had a long history of producing and selling high performance parts for Audis, even when doing such a thing wasn’t very common. They’ve sponsored numerous race cars, showed the world how menacing an R8 can be with a supercharger, and really did a ton for the Audi community. I held off on writing this post with hopes they might restructure and rise from the dead, but after several months that seems less and less likely. I myself have happily owned many parts made by them…

    The new 2014 Holden Ute Storm marks the first time the meteorologically-inspired special edition badge has graced a Commodore-based utility since its introduction on the VZ back in 2005. And headlined by boosted equipment levels and model-specific features, the new VF-based product promises to pack quite a punch, particularly in SS guise. Available from $35,990 driveaway for the SV6 variant (if sold and delivered before July 31), our Perfect Blue six-speed manual Holden Ute SS Storm starts at $39,990 – the six-speed automatic bumping things up to $42,190.

  • Audi A2Q coming in 2018 – report

    Matt Campbell
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:01 pm
    The ever-expanding Audi range will see the addition of a new Audi AQ2 model in 2018 according to a new report that also posits a new Audi Q6 coupe-style SUV by 2017. German magazine Autobild claims the new Audi AQ2 will give the brand a rival to the BMW i3, and will be built upon the flexible MQB underpinnings of the Volkswagen Group, specifically upon the Audi A3/Volkswagen Golf architecture. The brand showed the A2 Concept seen here in 2011 at the Frankfurt motor show, and the new production model is expected to move away from the high-riding MPV-style hatchback body of the show-car…
  • Renault Sport R.S. 01 : Nismo-powered racer to get supercar styling

    Tim Beissmann
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:42 pm
    Renault’s replacement for its Megane Trophy racecar – the new Renault Sport R.S. 01 – will boast genuine supercar styling when it debuts at next month’s 2014 Moscow motor show. The French manufacturer has teased fresh design elements of its new racer, which will compete in the 2015 World Series by Renault championship. The teaser video and image highlight its massive rear wing, flowing LED tail-lights, dual exhaust outlets embedded in the bumper and a broad diffuser. The R.S. 01’s design is reminiscent of the Alpine A110-50 concept, though Renault says the two are not…
  • Tesla, Panasonic join forces to make battery Gigafactory a reality – report

    30 Jul 2014 | 9:45 am
    Panasonic and Tesla have signed a partnership agreement to jointly build a massive new factory for lithium-ion batteries, dubbed the Gigafactory, in the US. Japanese newspaper Nikkei is reporting that the two have agreed in principle to an arrangement where Tesla will be responsible for the land and buildings, while Panasonic will provide the machinery required to produce lithium-ion battery cells en masse. The stated aim of the Gigafactory is to produce battery cells for around 500,000 electric cars annually by 2020. Construction of the factory is said to start by the end of this year, with…

  • Renault 21: more than just a number

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    29 Jul 2014 | 8:20 pm
    The Prisoner TV series had it all. A catchy soundtrack, a charismatic lead actor in Patrick McGoohan, a gripping storyline and a rather sinister weather balloon, which just happened to be called Rover. But The Prisoner didn’t have a Renault 21. Well, not until some 20 years after the original TV series first aired. The year was 1989 and Renault’s Sierra-rivalling 21 had just been revamped. Keen to promote it as more than just a facelift, Renault UK enlisted the help of one of the country’s best-loved cult TV programmes. Patrick McGoohan co-wrote and starred in The Prisoner,…
  • End of term: Daewoo Musso 2.9 TD

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    29 Jul 2014 | 7:59 am
    If I’m brutally honest, there were only three occasions when I was glad we owned a Daewoo Musso 2.9 TD. That’s not to say I regret buying it, but I’m going to have to put it down as a failed experiment. The reasoning behind buying a Daewoo Musso was sound enough. It came in under the £2k budget, it was a 4×4, it was local, it was low mileage and it had – or so I thought at the time – a whiff of PetrolBloggyness about it. And now – 12 months after buying it – I’d like to turn to you and claim I’ve unearthed an undiscovered gem. A cut…

    School’s out for summer. Which means two things. Firstly, your morning commute will suddenly get a whole lot easier. And secondly, you may wish to avoid the major tourist roads at weekends. The A303 past Stonehenge? Forget it. Children up and down the land are going to be in need of things to do, especially during the torturous journey to the coast. Of course, things aren’t what they used to be. Today’s children have the benefit of smartphones, tablets and selfies to help them pass the time in the back of the family Zafira. It wasn’t like that in our day. Trips to the…
  • Chalk and fromage: Audi 80 meets Citroën ZX 16v

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    24 Jul 2014 | 4:38 am
    It would make for an unlikely twin test. Just six years separate my 1995 Citroën ZX 16v and Darren Leslie’s 1989 Audi 80 S, but in reality the two cars are worlds apart. The B3 Audi 80 was launched back in 1986, but by the time the Citroën ZX arrived in 1991, Audi had already launched the B4 version. The Audi 80 was a premium saloon, with a premium price tag, built for the discerning buyer. The Citroën ZX was a value-driven hatchback with a utilitation feel to it. So why on earth would PetrolBlog put this unlikely pair at the top of Zig-Zag-Hill on the Wiltshire/Dorset border at a…
  • Which one is for you? Citroën C1 v Peugeot 108

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    24 Jul 2014 | 2:21 am
    What should be first on to your scone – clotted cream or jam? For lovers of cream teas, this is a critical question. The correct way is, of course, the Cornish way, with a layer of jam spread thinly on the scone, followed by a healthy dollop of clotted cream. Devonshire folk would disagree, arguing with much vigour that it’s the other way around. As a Cornishman living in Devon, I’m naturally quite confused, but I still maintain that it’s jam first. You could have a similar debate over the all-new Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108 city cars. Fundamentally, they are the same…

  • Lexus not planning to build cars in China, yet!
    31 Jul 2014 | 1:14 am
    Although almost all big carmakers build cars in China, it appears that Lexus wants to stay off that club. The Japanese company owned by Toyota is not planning to open a plant in China due to the fact that all its models sold there are made overseas and hit by the country’s import duties. Lexus International Executive Vice President Mark Templin believes that the company is still in the “crawling” stage and they are not ready to build cars in China, yet. Lexus needs to build the brand in the country and this is their top priority. For those who don’t know, the Japanese…
  • Honda posts a 7% jump in operating profit in the first quarter of 2014
    31 Jul 2014 | 12:12 am
    Honda Motor Co. posted a 7-percent jump in operating profit in the first quarter ended June 30, 2014 to JPY198 billion ($1.94 billion). The carmaker posted a 20-percent rise in net income to JPY146.5 billion, as well as a 5-percent surge in sales to JPY2.99 trillion. Honda saw its sales in home turf Japan boosted by back-orders from a buying rush preceding a sales tax hike on April 1. It also saw sales in China, India and Indonesia boosted by model changes. These sales surges were enough to offset slumping sales in Thailand, and dropping demand in the United States. Honda is trying to hike…

  • Glass Lewis says “Yes” vote on Fiat-Chrysler merger brings benefits
    30 Jul 2014 | 8:17 am
    Glass Lewis is recommending that Fiat investors vote “Yes” to a merger between the Italian carmaker and Chrysler Group at a meeting on Aug. 1. While a “Yes” vote would literally increase the voting power for main shareholder Exor, the proxy advisor said benefits outweighs those concerns. Such advice from Glass Lewis and other large proxy advisors are usually taken into heart by international investors – making their voice an important factor in determining whether Fiat could get the two-thirds majority needed for approval of the merger.

    Human beings are incredibly resilient. Often, we get our best lessons in that fact from the dumbest and meanest among us. This is one of those times. A thief stole this 1965 Plymouth from a shop in Arcadia, California sometime in 2012. Then he took it for a joy ride and smashed it into a tree. At 150 mph. The damage to the car surely looks like it...

    Existing lithium-ion batteries rely on the movement of lithium ions between the anode and cathode--and back--as the battery charges and discharges. It's one of the best options we have for powering electric vehicles (and most consumer electronic devices, for that matter) but there's still room for improvement.

    The aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 is expected to be more fuel-efficient than the full-size pickup truck with a steel body that it replaces. But that efficiency comes at a price. Riding on a traditional steel chassis, the aluminum body of the new F-150 will cut weight by 700 pounds or more, improving gas mileage ratings. But since aluminum is...

    Nearly a decade after the Honda Element debuted, the Kia Soul joined a few other brands in the car-in-a-box lineup in 2010. The niche group gained a lot of attention, good and bad, for their uniquely styled exteriors. But the 2014 Kia Soul is now maturely immersed in the auto scene.

    Owners of the new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport sedan could compete with the fairly common Audi, BMW and Mercedes mid-size sedans owned by neighbors—although most would know little or nothing about the Vsport. Oops, there goes the “foreign prestige” factor for Vsport owners. Well, bunk. The $59,995 Vsport four-door (not to be confused with the Cadillac CTS-V) can match prestigious foreign rivals. It’s little known that, while Cadillac virtually dominated the American luxury car market by 1950, an independently entered stock 1950 Caddy finished tenth in the 24-hour race at Le Mans, France,…

Skoda, the Czechoslovakian carmaker, is the official car supplier of the Tour de France. But other than official race vehicles, Skoda models are scarce in the country, although, of course, not as scarce as Bugatti models. In the early years of the Tour de France, cars traveling with riders were loaded down with spare parts, not only for…

    29 Jul 2014 | 5:25 pm
    We get some info about Red Bull on Spanish grand prix, the info is: Red Bull dominated the Spanish grand prix less than four days ago, but 600 kilometres down the road, the situation looks different in Monaco. The average laptime gap between the RB6 and its rivals looked insurmountable at the Circuit de Catalunya. But between the walls of the fabled Monte Carlo street layout, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was quickest in both of Thursday’s 90 minute practice sessions. Red Bull is, however, within shouting distance of the pace, indicating that the Milton Keynes based team has made…

    Andrei Cristea
    30 Jul 2014 | 12:42 pm
    I said it once, I’ll probably say it a million times: Fiat has gone too far trying to milk the iconic 500 model for all the money they can. Out of this desire a lot of alternative version were built, including the 500L, which promised to bring the 500 in a way a family can enjoy it. Fiat 500L small overlap crash test Well, things are not quite as you might expect, and a recent small overlap test conducted by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) revealed the car to be exactly what I call it: a money grab. With an overall safety rating of “Poor”, the Fiat 500L…

The Jaguar automaker is thus teasing us with the future XE-S model, revealing only the front of the supercar, as we can see in the image above.

      Keeping your dog safe and secure in your car is important whether you’re just going for a quick trip around town or on a cross country summer adventure.

Compare the new 308 to its 2013 predecessor, and the difference is astounding. For myself, the old version was an ugly, nondescript-looking thing offering exactly zero in the way of desirability, and the interior lacked any sort of charisma or design flair. In short: it was entirely dull and lacklustre and exactly the sort of car you buy if you have no interest in cars at all. For 2014 though, Peugeot…

  • Tesla Poised to Release a More Affordable Car in 2017

    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

  • The Top Commuter Cars for 2014

    10 May 2014 | 6:10 am
    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…

With a starting MSRP of just above $35,000 and an EPA rating of MPG around 21/31, it’ll appeal to those with luxury taste who are also watching their budget. The ES 350 got a massive makeover in 2013, and there’s nothing shockingly new for this year’s model. But that tempting bamboo interior trim, those heated seats, Siri Eyes Free technology, and LED fog lamps are starting to turn some heads.

    UK car sales have risen for the 27th month in a row, breaking a record that dated back to the 1980s.  The availability of easy credit combined with heavy discounting and rising consumer confidence (not to mention fairly solid economic growth) has swelled the demand for new cars within the UK.  Sales in the country are now out-pacing pre-recession levels. British car buyers have been considered the darlings of the European car industry within the last couple of years, with the rest of the continent still struggling with lower sales. New car sales in the UK rose 7.7 per cent in May,…

    A British motorist was caught driving at 149mph on the M25 in Kent, it's been revealed.  A Freedom of Information request by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) to police authorities asked for the location and speed of the fastest motorists caught by speed cameras within the last year.  Other notable speeders included a driver in Gateshead, who was recorded doing 96mph in a 30mph zone, and a motorist who reached 127mph on the A413 by-pass in Wendover, a road that carries a 60mph area. Thirty-three of the 39 police authorities in England and Wales responded to the request by…
  • How a regulatory change could raise company vehicle tax by 30%

    9 May 2014 | 3:13 am
    A new regulatory change could lead to businesses having to increase their vehicle tax budgets by up to 30 per cent, if the latest reports are to be believed.  Today, we’re going to take a look at the changes that are being slowly put in place, and the impact that they could potentially have. What are the changes? The plan is to introduce a new vehicle emissions test dubbed the Worldwide Harmonised Light-duty Test Procedures (WLTP).  It’s believed that the current New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) has been failing to provide a realistic picture of fuel consumption, and…

    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. Don’t ponder over it, just do it, and I promise you you’ll feel an…
  • Tesla Poised to Release a More Affordable Car in 2017

    10 May 2014 | 9:14 am
    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

    If you’ve seen the inside of a car made in the last five years, then you’re somewhat familiar with recent advances in automotive technology. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, imagine the cockpit of a small airplane, and you’ve got the gist. With the explosion in technology in the US, the auto industry has risen to the occasion and followed the trends.

  • The Top Commuter Cars for 2014

    10 May 2014 | 6:10 am
    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…
  • Meet the 2014 Lexus ES 350

    10 May 2014 | 5:20 am
    It’s been a few years since a Lexus was voted most popular, but the 2014 Lexus ES 350 model might just have what it takes. With a starting MSRP of just above $35,000 and an EPA rating of MPG around 21/31, it’ll appeal to those with luxury taste who are also watching their budget. The ES 350 got a massive makeover in 2013, and there’s nothing shockingly new for this year’s model. But that tempting bamboo interior trim, those heated seats, Siri Eyes Free technology, and LED fog lamps are starting to turn some heads. A gentleman’s or lady’s lounge on wheels, this model is designed to…

It’s a secret that will make it easier for you to get better quality car repairs at a good price. But here’s the thing. It’s only for those car owners who care.

    Many small business owners are not maximising the revenue they could earn because they are not thinking ahead. Often a small business owner will concentrate on running their business and that’s it. Yet if they started to copy the marketing tactics of supermarkets and online businesses, they could see a huge increase in their revenue. Let me show you what I mean.

    Ron Rodney
    6 Sep 2013 | 1:31 am
    There are some excellent mobile mechanics out there. But finding them is becoming extremely difficult. Do an Internet search for a mobile mechanic and it’s like doing a search for a plumber. You get so many results but there’s no way of knowing who are the good ones and what reviews are real or false. For instance, at the time of writing this, September 2013, we haven’t found a mobile mechanic who we’d be happy to recommend. The main reason for this is, we do a lot of research into the garages we recommend. Doing that same research to find mobile mechanics has left us far…

    Born in Britain, raised in Britain, went to America. Sounds like Davy Jones from The Monkees but no, it’s the Ford GT40. It’s also a car with an Italian connection, being none other than Enzo Ferrari. However the connection is not a friendly one… In 1963, Henry Ford (the second) received word that Ferrari was interested in selling parts to the Ford company. As you do, Ford spent a squillion on checking the viability of Ferrari and on legalities, only to have Ferrari cut short the discussions thanks to a dispute over racing rights. Enzo wanted to stay as the sole operator of…

    Automotive safety has come a long way in the last 15 years or so.  Once upon a time, the only safety features in your typical family car were seatbelts and the brake… and maybe the horn.  Back then seat belts were not always found in the rear seats, especially in older cars when I was a child.  Today, though, you’ve got the works.  In any new car worth its salt, you’ve got head rests to protect against whiplash, antisubmarining features in the seatbelts, three point-seat belts all round, crumple zones, pyrotechnic pretensioned seatbelts, airbags here, airbags there and airbags…

    Growing up in the south eastern outskirts of Perth during the 1970s coincided, for me, with a huge interest in modelling. No, I don’t mean the Karen Pini kind of modelling (Google her but be nice), I mean plastic hobby kit modelling. Ships, space craft, planes, tanks, people, cars, you name it and it was available. My own room was filled with samples from the military, space and cars. Nowadays the modelling scene, although not underground, is nowhere near as popular as it used to be. You could go to a K-Mart and buy kits, paint, brushes; hobby shops were, metaphorically, on every corner…

    People movers once ruled the roost and it was thanks to Toyota with the Tarago and LiteAce. Of more recent times, SUVs have grabbed the crown, to the detriment of driving standards. Proton offers up a slightly different alternative to A Wheel Thing with its compact sized people mover, the Exora. Again it’s split into two trim levels, the GX and GXR. It’s powered by the same engine (103kW/205Nm) as found in the Suprima S and Preve’ (amortising costs) and is lobbed into a car weighing just under 1500 kg. The engine is again bolted to a CVT with six programmed manual shift…

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. 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…

With a long career in Hollywood movie car fabrication, Mark Still built his custom Corolla with one purpose in mind — hill climbing. Using the suspension from a Lexus SC400 along with a Lexus V8, Still has put over 4,000 hours of work into this creation, and says that it puts out between 300-400 horsepower. RELATED:…

    Australia’s latest rap sensation might be ‘fancy’, but apparently she’s not prim enough to decline a role in Fast & Furious 7. You heard right.

It wasn’t just any TV show though, it was called Viper, and at the helm of it all was one very special car; the Viper Defender. Viper ran a total of four seasons from 1994-1999, and it cemented its place in history as a cult classic for gearheads. But how did the star of the show, the Viper Defender, come to be? No, it wasn’t built by George Barris, it was actually the work of a family run shop called Unique Movie Car Las Vegas. Along with the Viper Defender, Unique Movie Cars is responsible for some…

    Standard auto insurance policies in the USA assume that every eligible driver in your household will drive the insured vehicle at some stage. 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…

Scientists have myriad winding answers involving chemical jargon as to the differences between the two fuels. This makes it hard for the average non-scientist to understand their differences. However, in simple terms, both fuels are products of the crude oil but have distinct molecular structures. This is as a result of each of them being extracted at different temperatures during the…

    Following the launch of its all-new V-Class people carrier earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz has now unveiled the Vito mid-size van. Both vehicles share the same bodyshell, but the commercial version is understandably less luxurious and there are some significant specification differences. The most notable concerns the powertrain. Uniquely for this segment, buyers will be able to choose from front-, rear- or all-wheel drive configurations. However, for the time being at least, the last of those options is being denied to UK operators. Powering the front-wheel drive models is a 1.6 litre,…

    In a little over two years’ time, Ford will close its manufacturing operations in Australia. One of the casualties of that move is going to be the Victoria-built Falcon, which won’t be replaced. Consequently, the minor changes just announced for 2014 are probably the model’s final updates. A new trapezoidal front grille and revised headlights are the most obvious facelift elements. Influenced by Ford’s latest global design language, the alterations work well and give the Falcon a stronger visual link to other vehicles in the range. The restyle also coincides with the return of the XR8…

The ranges on offer vary as, of course, do prices. Comparing a basket of commonly-available items clearly shows that some fans will be paying considerably more than…

Driving a rally car at that age was a pipedream. Kalle Rovanperä has been driving rally cars since he was only eight-years-old thanks to his father being Finnish rally driver, Harri “Rovis” Rovanperä, who raced in WRC from 1996 to 2003.

    A mid-engined fighter jet. If there’s one way to instantly transform a supercar into even more of a head-turner, it’s to throw on some military-inspired styling. More power and a new set of wheels always helps, but this Audi R8 by mbDESIGN is flying away and dropping bombs with its F-16 fighter jet livery. The new mbDESIGN Audi R8 easily stands out from the crowd thanks to its new F-16 Artic Aggressor fighter jet-inspired livery. The mid-engined V-8 supercar was given the full three-tone camouflage wrap with various aircraft markers by the specialists at “raum22” to visually transform…

    Oh what pretty sounds. One of the last mass-produced Pagani Zonda models was the Tricolore. The V-12 supercar paid homage to the aerobatic team of Italy and sported a new wing that was inspired by the stunt aircraft they used. Its heritage shines through its red, white, and green striping throughout as it roars with its powerful engine. There are only three Pagani Zonda Tricolore models in the world and supercar video expert, Marchettino, was able to strap a few cameras on the exterior and interior and go for quite a ride. The cameras were able to capture the sensation of riding atop and by…

    In this day and age, we’re all looking at how we can have a positive (or less negative) impact on the environment in general. We must start taking better care of our planet in order to make sure that future generations (and the planet itself) don’t suffer as a result of our irresponsibility. For the last decade or so especially, car manufacturers have sought to design vehicles which run in as eco-friendly a way as possible. Of course, these sorts of vehicles are not suited to every driver, but there are many of us who could switch to a more eco-friendly option. Smart cars don’t suit…

Fanatics of the most passionate kind, worshipping machines which back in their day were known to have faults. Today I have become one of those fanatics.  A sidevalve 250cc engine of around 1950 vintage, this beautiful piece of the puzzle is only the beginning of a long and frustrating time. And I have already started. Armed with my handy 50s motorcycle guide, I have all the knowledge of the period to help me with getting…

    It is an unfortunate aspect of history that certain siblings are relegated to the shadows of their much brighter offspring, no matter how brightly they shine. The Brough Superior automobile is one such example of this, having no chance against the solar beacon that was the Brough Superior motorcycles it shared it’s nameplate with. Nonetheless, with relativity put aside, it’s time to take a closer look at the lesser known member of the Brough Superior vehicle range. Over a short period between 1935 and 1938, the Brough Superior Motorworks produced approximately 85 motorcars. Rolling…

    Today we have it so easy as motorcycle riders. Before the advent of the throttle roll hand control, before the ‘point & squirt’ bikes we have today, riding a bike was an incredibly involved task. Just controlling the engine and keeping it running was a job in itself, with oil, fuel and air measures being set as the rider desired. These are the true motorcyclists’ cycles, where total control of the machine was in the hands of the rider. However, by noting that these bikes feature lacklustre brakes and woeful power output, it allow us to appreciate how far we have come,…

    10 Mar 2014 | 11:10 am
    Winter snow is (hopefully) coming to an end — just in time for April showers. While rain won’t be as inconveniencing as this winter’s snow storms, it can still create less-than-ideal driving conditions. Here are some wet weather driving tips to keep you safe long after all of the snow has melted. Skidding When the roads are wet, it’s harder for your tires to get traction. At times, this may cause your car to skid. Skidding is a anxiety-inducing event, but AAA reminds drivers to remain calm. Contrary to popular belief, you shouldn’t slam on the brakes — this…

The Range Rover Sport is often seen as the Range Rover people buy when they either can’t afford the big daddy Range Rover or are a professional soccer player.  Sure it has a 510 horsepower V8 attached to an eight-speed ZF gearbox and is good for a 0 to 60 time of 5.0 seconds, but it’s always the Range Rover’s little brother.  At least the Range Rover Evoque has an identity and personality all its own… It was designed in part by Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham, after all.  (To be honest, I still don’t know if…

  • Mazda Recalling Cars Due to Danger From Insect

    Dan White
    4 Apr 2014 | 3:56 pm
    AP – Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars’ software for free beginning this…
