  • Ford makes a real-life Tonka Dump Truck from their new F-750

    admin
    5 Mar 2015 | 4:05 pm
    Ford’s F-Series lineup isn’t just about the legendary F150. It’s also about the serious heavy-duty rigs that have been powering the industrial automotive sector, all around the world, for decades. Like this new F-750, for instance. And to celebrate its launch, Ford managed to deck out their all-new 2016 F-650/F-750 trucks complete in full Tonka-livery. It’s like being a child again, except it’s the real thing! Anyone who’s pretty much played in a sandbox with Tonka toy trucks knows Ford has been behind some of these industrial rigs for years. The latest…
  • Report: Mazda’s keeping its new CX-3 diesel for its own market only

    admin
    5 Mar 2015 | 3:14 pm
    Mazda’s been doing well completely revitalizing their entire lineup. Though, some of their original plans haven’t really played out as intended, such as importing their diesel version to North America. It seems they’ve been struggling to meet new emissions regulations for our shores with their current SKYACTIV-D engine because, well, they promised it to debut with the current generation Mazda6… But the 6 has been around for a couple years already, and we’re still waiting after several delays. The same engine was potentially rumored to find its way into other cars…
  • 2015 Geneva: Porsche reveals the all-new 911 GT3 RS

    admin
    5 Mar 2015 | 6:10 am
    One of the most highly-anticipated reveals of Geneva was the all-new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and it’s finally here. Sporting a bonkers 4.0L flat-six, tuned to produce 500hp and 338 lb-ft of torque, the GT3 RS is meant to be the most powerful naturally-aspirated model in the lineup. It’s mated exclusively to Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch automatic, resulting in a 0-60 sprint in just 3.1 seconds while the quarter mile zooms by in just 11.2. The GT3 RS also laps the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just seven minutes and 20 seconds. This comes thanks to a bunch of aggressive sport upgrades…
  • 2015 Geneva: Volkswagen’s Passat Alltrack is for all roads…except ours

    admin
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:01 pm
    Volkswagen’s having a field day at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show this year. Recently, they revealed their new Passat Alltrack, which is basically a Passat Variant wagon with 4MOTION and more ground clearance. Think of it as a Subaru Outback-ified Passat wagon. In addition to the extra height, there’s more exclusive bodywork such as underclad protection, extended wheel arches, side skirts, and other lower bumper sections for a more rugged appearance. Power is supplied by either a 1.4L TFSI turbo-four with an optional 2.0L turbo-four. The 1.4L unit is good for 150hp with the 2.0L mill…
  • 2015 Geneva: The Koenigsegg Regera with 1,500hp goes live

    admin
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:06 am
    Koenigsegg finally revealed their all new “megacar.” Meet the Regera, complete with 1,500hp worth of plug-in hybrid. Yup, you read correctly, Koenigsegg’s new baby is a plug-in hybrid, just like the LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and the McLaren P1. Gas propulsion still comes thanks to a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8, which is still lifted from the Agera. It’s then reworked to provide 1,100hp and then mated to some additional electric motors that provide an extra whopping 700hp. Total output should be around 1,500hp with the same amount of torque, leaving room for probable…

    The Truth About Cars

    5 Mar 2015 | 3:09 pm
    Not long ago my mother moved into an assisted living facility and I’ve been cleaning through her house. After observing her, my daughters, my sisters, and my maternal aunts I’ve figured out that there’s likely an OCD gene on one of their X chromosomes. Of course, my daughters got that bit of genetic material from their dear old dad. Hey, just because I have 60+ egg crates filled with about 15 years worth of automotive press kits doesn’t mean that I hoard things. Anyhow, while cleaning I came across a box that looked like it hadn’t been touched since January of…

    5 Mar 2015 | 2:36 pm
      If you drive a Tesla, Leaf or a Volt, you may not have been to a gas pump lately. For the rest of us you’re probably wondering how in the Hell did he get it so wrong! There are some pretty amazing things happening in the oil industry, and a perfect storm gathered to spike gasoline prices in the short term, and has set up a tidal wave of oil that could completely collapse both crude oil and refined fuel products just as the summer driving season begins. To get an idea of what is going on, you need to look at three charts, which paint a fascinating picture. First, take a look at West…
  • Study: Millennial Fastest-Growing Auto Lending Segment

    Cameron Aubernon
    5 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Alleged to not be interested in cars or driving them, millennials are the fastest-growing segment of car buyers as far as lending goes, per a new study. According to Automotive News, credit-reporting company TransUnion found the group represented 27 percent of overall auto loans and lease originations made in 2014, up from just 16 percent in 2009. Senior vice president and automotive business leader Jason Laky says this is due to both an improving economy and millennials’ entering into the next phase of their lives: They’re maturing into their adulthood.

  • Junkyard Find: 1973 Volvo 145 Station Wagon

    Murilee Martin
    5 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    If you listen to those who claim to love the Volvo 140, every example of the breed is extremely valuable and must be saved… and yet there’s a greater disparity between the Talking The Talk Quotient (TTTQ) and the Walking The Walk Quotient (WTWQ) seen among self-proclaimed Volvo fanatics than found among aficionados of any other marque. Yes, the TTTQ:WTWQ value approaches something like 100:1 when it comes to the poor old Volvo 140, a car whose basic design lived on well into the 1990s (in the form of the 140-descendent 240), and so almost none of these cars get rescued when they get…

    5 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    I have talked about diesel, manual wagons in this space a few times already, so you probably know that I don’t like them. I don’t like their clatter and I don’t like their limited rev range and turbo surge. I don’t like the massive servicing costs of the common-rail ones, which is the price you pay for the reduction in clatter. And I hate the tons of soot they spit out. There is one thing, though, at which they are hard to beat. It’s providing a combination of practicality and driving fun combined with fantastic fuel mileage. But hard to beat doesn’t mean…

    3 Mar 2015 | 10:02 pm
    Words | Photos: Henry Wurtz The idea that a car can be considered art is often considered and debated over by automotive enthusiasts. However, what about a car collection, could that be considered art? I am one who believes that a car can be art, in addition, so can a car collection. Nestled away in cloudy Washington State is a small warehouse containing the collection of Peter Gleeson. It is a work of art. Mr. Gleeson was kind enough to invite the Puget Sound Region of the BMW Club of America to have a look around his garage. While many people may be aware of the Gleeson collection for its…

    Marc Lichte took over as head of design at Audi in February 2014, and his influence can be seen already in the brand’s two most recent show cars, the Prologue coupe from Los Angeles and the Prologue Avant that was unveiled at Geneva. In an interview at the latter show, the former VW designer told us what to take away from the new concepts, explained the importance of the next-generation A8, and tipped his hand regarding other future products as well. The next A8 will be the first car designed from scratch under Lichte. It also will usher in a new era for Audi design. As the chief designer…
  • Aston Martin CEO: Electric DBX Will Help Ensure Brand’s Survival, Increase Its Appeal to Women

    It’s fair to say that the Aston Martin DBX concept was high on the list of stuff we really weren’t expecting to see when we turned up at the 2015 Geneva show—our reaction was actually closer to “Whoa! Wait, what?” as Aston yanked the sheet from its electric-powered crossover-sports-coupe-thing. But, auto-show flash aside, the vehicle apparently is being rushed toward production. Is this really the future of one of the world’s longest-established sports-car makers? New-ish Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer is predictably keen to argue that, yes, it is. Brit Palmer has only been with…

    Snowy winter rallies are not strictly the domain of Scandinavians – with some focused googling, you can find some winter rallies taking place in North America. Replete with fast cars sliding around turns, spectacular snow sprays, and adrenaline-junkie drivers and co-drivers, the only thing different is the small clutch of fans.

There has been some good and bad news during the six months of anticipation preceding the 2015 series starting this May. The spectacular Las Vegas finale saw Ken Block win the race and Joni Wiman win the championship title with a one-two finish in Ford Fiestas.

Launched at SEMA in the Ford booth, the highly awesomely insanely modified all-wheel drive 1965 notchback Mustang was emblazoned with Ken Block’s Hoonigan racing logos and racing #43. A Roush Yates V-8 engine pumps out a roaring 845 horsepower, and the body sits on custom Pirelli Trofeo R tires.

With an aim toward automotive applications, Tennessee-based APLAIR Manufacturing Systems has licensed a weld inspection technology developed by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The automotive industry relies heavily on resistance spot welding in the fabrication and assembly of steel sheet components and structures; the average car uses more than four thousand spot welds. Manufacturers typically inspect the quality of welds with a pry-check, an expensive and destructive process…

    Customer Loyalty and Car Count Averages: The Connection, from eService Intelligence. Automotive service shops that help customers by taking the lead increase loyalty. Far from bugging customers with suggestions and reminders, they grow to appreciate that you’re going the extra mile, while you easily increase car counts. You can use your new “smart” CRM to do just that. A case study The average driver goes to the automotive service shop 1 to 1.5 times a year. If you preschedule future service visits, you can increase that count per customer to 3 visits per year. For example, if 50% of…

    Your Customer Is A Narcissist: How To Turn This To Your Advantage In Customer Loyalty, from Automotive Digital Marketing. The customer’s at the center of the customer’s universe A customer wants to feel that they’re at the center of your (the service provider’s) world. Customers are, after all, already at the center of their own world, their own reality. All that matters to the customer is the customer and the people whom the customer cares about, a category that only tangentially includes you, the service provider. It’s important to absorb this reality–because it is reality.

    Self-Managed vs. vBDC Managed Chat, from Elead1One. Chat solutions on your website will generate incrementally more leads, as we well know. But that doesn’t give you a clear answer on how you can arrive at those lead increases. There are essentially two types of products in chat services; Managed and Self-managed. While hybrid models are available in the marketplace, it is this debate that spawned the existence of reception services or BDC backstop services. So, how do you decide which is the best for your dealership? One thing I learned very early on in my career is to trust the data. When…

    Do you love your old car but hate the way it smells? Does the interior give off a mysterious odor that’s impossible to irradiate? Have you given up on air fresheners, shampoos, ionizers and all the quick fixes? It’s time to get your nose down in the carpet and face up to the facts. There’s a very good chance that your car rugs are harbouring those noxious perpetrators. This is a problem that can be solved and the materials are not that expensive. Replacing automotive carpets is well within the capabilities of a competent do-it-yourselfer. Here’s a handy hint for anyone…
  • Valvoline Launches Full Synthetic High Mileage Oil

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

The auto industry is back on track, with 16.9 million new vehicles sold in America in 2014, up from a low point of 11.5 million in 2009. This resurgence has created over 400,000 new jobs over that timespan, at automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and dealerships.

While I’ve been to NAIAS a number of times over the years, this was the first time I flew home knowing that I need to start doing things differently, ASAP. Although the price of gasoline may have plummeted, there’s still a mission (make that multiple missions) that must be accomplished. Gas will not stay this cheap forever.

    Car Lust

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:17 am
    Porsches, particularly 911s, are typical car-lust (lower case) fodder for the masses. That’s OK, it’s earned it. In CarLust fashion, it’d probably end up in the CarDisgust section for a number of reasons. That’s OK, it’s earned it. But as you read on about the following example of Stuttgart’s icon, you’ll see why it’s CarLust material. Back in the 90s, while Uncle D lived in Chicago, he oftentimes let me know on his visits to this magical place called the Chicago Auto Show, which, of course I could never attend, being in Chicago and all that. One year, around the turn of the…

    25 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    "Sneaky Hot". For the uninitiated, the term is somewhat au courant these days and refers to people (okay, almost always female) who are "not usually in the conversation of being among the hottest of their group, but when mentioned or seen you remember that they are rather attractive."  It could, in my view, have a temporal component as well, describing someone you've seen or perhaps known for a while, who didn't initially strike you as being all that, but one day you look at them and see a certain attractiveness that you didn't notice before. Not really the…

    When was the last time you saw an AMC Gremlin on the road? And when you saw that Gremlin trundling around, what sort of shape was it in? Speaking personally, outside a car show context I haven't seen a Gremlin in at least a decade, and even back then the Gremlins I saw were hopelessly bedraggled--fade paint, missing glass, blowing smoke, and just generally neglected. Unfortunately, owners tend not to care for cars they perceive as cheap and disposable, and so they tend not to survive in good condition. As a result, vintage economy and entry-level cars now seem rarer to me than their…

    One of the coolest parts of going to Porsche's Camp4 Canada was learning all about how the circuits used for the driving experience are crafted. It's a delicate art, trying to balance how much snow and ice are underneath the cars. The people who run and maintain the tracks, Mécaglisse, are artists, and they take great pride in their art. Here are a few things we learned about the circuit, and how they keep such excellent surfaces. 1. First of all, Mécaglisse is a four-season racing circuit with multiple configurations. At the beginning of every winter they wait until its cold enough to…
  • Porsche Cars North America February Sales By Model

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:30 am
    Yesterday, on the same day the all new 911 GT3 RS was revealed, Porsche Cars North America announced their February 2015 sales figures. With a total of 3,202 units delivered during the month, this marks the first time in recent history that sales numbers did not increase on a month-over-month basis. Porsche says the decline of 30 units, less than 1% off last year's figures, is due mainly to the west coast port dispute and the horrible cold and snow that many parts of the U.S. struggled through last month. Still, taking into account February's slight decline, PCNA's sales remain 12.8% higher…

With a new Chevrolet Camaro poised for introduction in the coming months, GM wants to keep the model fresh in the eyes of consumers until the sixth-generation car takes its bow. One innovative way to do so is to look back at five generations of Camaro, as seen through Chevrolet’s current design executives. Ed Welburn is vice president of GM Global Design and the current owner of a 1969 Camaro. Asked for his take on the first generation of Chevrolet’s “approachable, attainable sports car,”…

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1988 Volkswagen DoKa Pickup

    Kurt Ernst
    5 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Volkswagen’s DoKa (short for DoppelKabine, or double cabin) pickups have a small but loyal following in the United States, enhanced, perhaps, by their forbidden fruit, not-recently-imported-here status.  That forces prospective buyers to shop offshore, importing examples built prior to 1990, until the occasional clean example surfaces on these shores. This 1988 VW TriStar DoKa, for sale on Hemmings.com, appears to fit that description; aside from a few dents that pay tribute to its past life as a commercial vehicle, the body and paint are in good shape, and the interior appears to be…

Retaining the same name and much of the same wording as the earlier piece of legislation – the Corn Ethanol Mandate Elimination Act of 2015, which failed to make its way into…

Which is probably why people were more aware of car maintenance in those days. You really didn’t have much choice. Today, it’s easy to neglect maintenance stuff because there’s less to do — and less often. Spark plugs that last 100,000 miles. Oil changes every 10,000 miles. As opposed to spark plugs that lasted 12 months — and oil changes every 3,000 miles. But cars are still machines and machines still need…

Nissan has made this seven passenger SUV into a well-mannered, fun and versatile vehicle capable of handling most any terrain and with enough options to satisfy any taste. Perhaps, best of all, the Pathfinder starts around $30,000. In other words, Nissan has priced this gentle giant under the cost of many mid-sized sedans. The Pathfinder is a radical departure from older generations and provides ample evidence that Nissan knows how to produce a seven-passenger SUV that can match luxury…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The fuel price and supply shocks of the 1970s sent many of the world’s prestige automakers scrambling to come up with more efficient machines to keep their fiscally-flush customers in the fold. Mercedes-Benz, of course, was not one of them, for it was already offering thrifty-at-the-pump mid-size cars with four- and five-cylinder diesel engines (and had been on a regular basis since the 1950s). So popular did these models suddenly become over here in North America that in 1978 the company began building a turbocharged version of its 3.0L inline-five…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The Lamborghini Aventador is pretty extreme as driving instruments go, yet tuners have been finding ways to make it even more extreme pretty much since day one. So far, Lamborghini has stayed on the sidelines but, considering the company eventually released SV (short for Superveloce) versions of most of its previous mid-engined V12 models (Miura, Diablo and Murcielago), you had to have had some inkling that this bad boy was coming. Formally-titled the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV, this low-slung screamer adds reshaped front air intakes and splitter,…

    Nissan took the styling of its two-row SUV from mild to wild for 2015, but the changes to the Murano are not just skin deep. A redesign increased its length and width, which translated to a couple extra inches of backseat legroom and more cubic feet of cargo space. Since we were able to fit three car seats across the backseat of the previous version, the bigger Murano should have no problem in this department, right?

    Gas prices in my area are inching up again after getting into the dollar-and-a-half-per-gallon range. Today, prices at my local pump sit at around $2.15. That’s still a far cry from the $4.75 I was paying not long ago, but not nearly high enough to make me consider giving up gas and going electric. The consensus is similar for consumers across the nation, as electric cars haven’t made much of a dent in sales so far this year. The price premium on new electric cars just doesn’t make the investment worth it. What about the used market, though? There’s a wide range of EVs…

    Outside of Star Trek, Leonard Nimoy was better known for his art and photography than for his affection for automobiles. The recently passed Nimoy spent nearly all of his acting days piloting a space ship, but spent at least a little time piloting a Mercedes-Benz in a now-classic Audi commercial that featured the two Spock actors dueling for lunch.

The ’80s list featured a good number of discontinued cars, but only one car no longer in production made this one.

    The first time i read about Toyota i-Road was when Toyota did a test driving in Tokyo, i saw the news and couple of youtube videos were it was twisting and turning in a narrow suburban road with ease. My initial reaction was that i got amazed at the change of design from normal tradition cars, i always had a notion of how a car design needs to be and how a car needs to move. But Toyota i-Road completely broke my perception about cars in general, i always believed a car needs to look like every other car on road and needs a bit more space on road to move safely but in reality the city roads…

    5 Mar 2015 | 3:40 pm
    This time the winner is Toyota Camry. In February 2015 the number of deals almost reached 40.000 (32,942, to be precise). And you might remember that Camry has already grabbed the number one spot three times in seven months. In December 2014 it outsold its direct rival, Nissan Altima, but still lost a bit to another Toyota’s best-seller, Corolla. But in February 2015 Camry gained a victory (+13.6%). America’s second best-selling car in February 2015 was Nissan Altima. Its sales went down 7.7% as compared with the same month of the previous year. This fact can partly be explained by…

    Last year Ford’s Escape held first place on the list of best-selling SUVs and crossovers. But as in February 2015 there was a 10% decrease in the number of sold cars, Ford slid to fifth spot. The winner was The Honda CR-V. It’s safe to say that it led the SUV/crossover segment. Having outsold Toyota RAV4 by 355 cars Honda grabbed the number one spot (22,298 sales). Chevrolet Equinox with its 21,723 sales was put at number 3 in the national ranking (+0.6% as compared with February 2014). Then comes Nissan Rogue that leaped to fourth place due to its 24.6% growth. Utility vehicles produced…

    DON’T:  Allow your pet to ride with his head outside the window. He could be injured by flying objects or debris flying into his eyes, and some dogs have even jumped out of the window of a moving car. "Turn off power windows in your car when your dog is in his harness, as they can be accidentally opened with a simple press of their paw,” advises Lauren Genkinger, president of Adopt a Golden Atlanta.

    DON’T: Let your dog ride loose in your car. Keep your pet in the back seat in his crate or with a harness attached to a seat buckle. Lauren Genkinger, president of Adopt a Golden Atlanta, recommends not allowing your dog in the front seat to avoid driver distraction and injury to the animal if there is a sudden stop or accident and the airbag goes off. If you choose a crate, make sure it's large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down, and turn around in. Always secure the crate so it won't slide or shift in the event of a quick stop.  And P.S., it's smart to get your pet used to the…

    Porsche has come at full force to the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. Porsche has not only brought along the fastest Cayman they have ever made, they have also brought along the brand new 991-generation 911 GT3 RS for the track enthusiasts. The technology and performance that Porsche has thrown at the GT3 RS are simply staggering. Porsche only reserves the “RS” designation for the most hardcore, yet street legal, cars that they make.

    4 Mar 2015 | 10:00 am
    Driving enthusiasts know that the sweet spot in the Porsche line-up is the mid-engined Cayman sports car. Not only is it cheaper than the 911, the Cayman should theoretically have a better chassis balance because the mass of the engine is located between the front and rear axles instead of it hanging over the rear axle as it does in the 911. However, there has always been this feeling that Porsche has purposely held back the performance of the Cayman so that it wouldn’t step on the toes of it’s big brother. The Cayman GT4 is Porsche’s answer to those doubts, and the options list looks…

The idea here is to streamline parts buying from multiple manufacturers, and not only aims to make finding the right parts for your ride easier, but also make the installation and identification a smoother process. You can search by car make and model as any site or app will let you, but you can also search by engine (super useful…

  • Ferrari 488 GTB Storms Into Geneva :Video

    5 Mar 2015 | 10:00 am
    Although it is not the first time that Ferrari introduced a twin-turbocharged V-8, probably none before it created so many waves as the engine in the 488 GTB. With 0.6 liter less displacement than the screaming 4.5-liter V-8 in its predecessor, the new twin-turbo V-8 in the 488 GTB is a downright monster from just about every angle. Yours truly is not very fond of the more muffled exhaust sound compared with the high-revving V-8 in the 458 Italia, but I can certainly appreciate the engineering behind the new powerplant.With an output of 661 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, sent to the…
  • Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator Goes Live

  • BMW 1 Series Sport Cross

    5 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    Just when it starts to look like BMW has created a car to fill just about every niche it could possible conceive, rumors begin to emerge about a future niche-filling model in development. Where could the German automaker go beyond Gran Coupe, Grand Tourer, Gran Turismo and coupe-inspired crossovers? If Automobile Magazine is right, BMW is working on a new off-road version of the 1 Series that could wear the Sport Cross name.Going after the active-lifestyle crowd who demand a somewhat capable vehicle that isn’t too expensive or harsh on the environment, the BMW 1 Series Sport Cross is…
  • Mini Countryman Park Lane

    5 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
    After introducing the bonkers Clubman Vision Gran Turismo, Mini didn’t see fit to come empty-handed to the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and therefore brought a special edition of its Countryman crossover. Called the Countryman Park Lane, the special model was named after a London street in the upscale Mayfair district, while hardcore Mini aficionados may remember that this is not the first ever Park Lane model featured in the carmaker’s lineup. A more luxurious version of the classic Mini featured the Park Lane moniker in 1987, as did a posh modern Mini back in 2005.At first glance,…

    5 Mar 2015 | 9:35 am
    When I leased my '14 Altitude GC last May, the salesman mentioned that Jeep offers lease pull ahead options halfway through the lease. Can anyone confirm this? Or is there anyone who has a '13 lease that may be over soon and has been offered to pull ahead to a new one? I'm curious because my altitude did not come with the Back up Camera or Nav and I know the '15's do come with them. Thanks

    Hello all! I am new to a WJ, and new to Jeep Garage. After reading forums over past couple months, i decided to join. So old guys, please help by letting me pick your brain. 2000 4.7 WJ. the 247 was bad, so I swapped a 242J into it. Swapped rear shaft too. After the swap, it would grind terribly and not shift into 4x4. Turns out, a previous owner had replaced the driver wheel bearing/hub and driver axle shaft. But when they replaced the axle shaft, they used the one for Quadra-Drive, so it was an inch and a half too short. That was an easy fix, so took it on a road trip. Seemed good until I…

Whenever I'm using the Nav, the thing not only gives me voice guidance (great) but also does a double "beep beep" chime sound occasionally, or sometimes CONSTANTLY (like crawling along in slow traffic on parramatta road today). I've turned off speed warning in the dash and in the Nav software and any other alerts/POI data but I have NO idea why this chime keeps singing away whenever it feels like it...

    Few changes are more wonderful — or important — than becoming a new parent. If you had a baby in 2014, your new addition can affect your 2014 tax return in several ways. Know Your Tax Credits New parents may qualify for a variety of tax credits, including the following. The Child Tax Credit enables you to deduct up to $1,000 from your tax bill for every child under the age of 17, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

    There’s a new compact SUV in town, one that gets 26-city and 34-highway miles per gallon. Chevy’s new for 2015 Trax is powered by a 138-horsepower 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that sends power to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.

    The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the classic cars you see most often. And in contrast to gull-wing door cars and so on, you can even see it on ordinary roads, although little space and a small boot render it inconvenient for ordinary uses. Rameder, one of the leading providers of transport accessories for cars, thus sells a towbar for many Beetle models dating from 1967 to 1984 at www.rameder.eu. The rigid hook with its welded ball head enables the Beetle to tow small trailers or caravans. And at a vertical coupling load of 50kg, affixing a bicycle rack is no problem either.

  • New-generation Smart a no-go for Australia

    Trent Nikolic
    5 Mar 2015 | 5:54 am
    Hot on the heels of Mercedes Benz Australia confirming that it was keen to make the Smart business model work in Australia, representatives have been forced to admit that the new version won’t be available in Australia for the foreseeable. The German manufacturer’s Australian arm has been forced to accept that the business case, largely based on pricing, simply can’t work for the local market where competition is fierce in the compact car segment. See more on that story here. “We wouldn’t have been able to get the new Smart until 2016 in any case,” explained Mercedes-Benz…
  • Audi ‘A0′ rival to the Smart car mooted by chief

    Mike Costello
    5 Mar 2015 | 5:02 am
    An Audi ‘A0’ city car remains a possibility for the Ingolstadt brand as a new range-opener, according to the company’s board member for technical development Ulrich Hackenberg. Always keen to expand into new segments — the TT Q crossover and Q8 being two forthcoming examples — the company also sees potential for what would become a rival for Mercedes-Benz’s Smart brand. Speaking at the Geneva motor show this week, Hackenberg hinted it was something the company was working on, though potentially only in concept guise as a toe-in-the-water exercise similar to what Lexus did with the…
  • Borgward is back :: Plans full-scale model range, rollout begins in September

    Mike Costello
    5 Mar 2015 | 5:01 am
    Returning German luxury brand Borgward, absent for 54-years but relaunched in Geneva this week, will use the Frankfurt motor show in September to premiere the first model in what it says will become a large scale-line up. Expect this first vehicle to be a mid-sized luxury SUV (what else?) with the option of a plug-in electric (PHEV) drivetrain, styled by former Saab design director Einar Hareide. The company will then reveal another two or three models each year beginning in Geneva next March until it honours a “commitment to deliver a complete model range” of “accessible…
  • Italdesign GEA imagines itself as an autonomous luxury sedan

    Derek Fung
    4 Mar 2015 | 8:23 pm
    With the Italdesign GEA, the famous Italian design house has taken a stab at what a luxury autonomous sedan may look like and contain. Riding on massive 26-inch alloy wheels, and measuring 5.37 metres long, 1.98m wide, 1.46m tall and sitting on a 3.33m wheelbase, the GEA promises its four occupants plenty of space. In autonomous driving mode the GEA dims into windows to same colour as the vehicle’s body. When the car is steering itself, the passenger cabin can be configured into one of three modes: business, wellness and dream. If business mode is selected, the front passenger’s…
  • Ferrari 488 GTB premieres at Geneva: twin-turbo mid-engined V8 seen, heard in action

    David Zalstein
    4 Mar 2015 | 7:36 pm
    The first-ever Ferrari 488 GTB has debuted at this week’s 2015 Geneva motor show, accompanied by the first full video of the twin-turbocharged mid-engined V8-powered successor to the 458 Italia in full attack mode. Coming 40 years after Ferrari launched its first-ever mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta, the 308, the new 488 GTB launches with a dry-sump 3.9-litre V8 developing 492kW at 8000rpm and 760Nm at 3000rpm. Sounding noticeably deeper in its exhaust note then the aurally stimulating 425kW/540Nm naturally aspirated 4.5-litre V8 used to power the 458 Italia, the 488 GTB – or Gran…

  • The PB review: Suzuki Vitara SZ5 AllGrip

    Gavin Big-Surname
    25 Feb 2015 | 4:46 am
    The Suzuki Vitara is part of the furniture in Britain. Since its launch in 1988, it has become the near brand generic for the lifestyle-led SUV. Equally at home on the streets of Chelmsford as it is on the tracks of Ceredigion, the Vitara was a crossover in the days when a crossover was simply a means of getting to the other side of the road. Loyal fans have grown to love its no-nonsense appeal. A Suzuki Vitara gives you the sense it will always get you out of trouble, whilst doing its best to keep you out of trouble in the first place. The flip-slide is the ‘Barbie and Ken’ image of the…
  • Suzuki Celerio: two into one does go

    20 Feb 2015 | 2:09 pm
    You can’t help but feel a little bit sorry for the new Suzuki Celerio. It was all going so well for the latest entrant into an already crowded segment. Just about every motoring journalist and their dog had converged on the Leicestershire countryside and come away with a sense that Suzuki had done a pretty good job. Many would have approached the Celerio with low expectations, so it probably overachieved. Job well done, then? Well not exactly, because within days of the UK press launch, a couple of Suzuki Celerios on test with What Car? and Autocar suffered total brake failure at…

    And so, after what seems like an eternity left in the wilderness, PetrolBlog is back. In truth, the spirit of PB never really went away, it just wasn’t being spouted on the interweb. But the fact is, on the eve of its fifth birthday, PB just couldn’t stay away for any longer. So apologies for that. A small crowd has gathered in the lock-up to witness the re-launch. Mavis from accounts has raided the petty cash to find 50p for the meter. Brian from personnel has sorted out the health and safety. And Bill, well nobody really knows what Bill does. But he’s wearing a party hat.
  • Raining champ: Ford Focus ST review

    Gavin Big-Surname
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:45 am
    Typical isn’t it? You fly to Spain in search of some sun, only to be greeted with some properly British downpours. Not the ideal weather in which to test-drive Ford’s latest blue collar hot hatch hero. Barcelona was the destination for the launch of the new Ford Focus ST, which can now be ordered – should sir or madam wish – with a diesel engine. Aside from some truly impressive economy figures, the diesel’s primary weapon over the petrol version is the bucketloads of torque on offer from the 2.0-litre TDCI unit. How does 295lb ft at 2,000 to 2,750rpm sound? Of course,…

    The Proton Impian may not be the most fashionable name on the used car market, but it could have been worse. In Malaysia, the Impian is known as the Waja. Yep, the Proton Waja. Suddenly the Impian doesn’t sound too bad after all. Truth is, I’ve had a soft spot for the Proton Impian ever since it was launched in the UK back in 2003. To say it’s a handsome car would be stretching things a little, but in profile and from the rear, it looks good. And it’s a proper four-door saloon car, designed from the ground up to be a sedan. No Shatchback nonsense here, thank you very…

    Carmakers are finally seeing growth in Europe after years of slump, but remain cautious of the possible effect of the current situation in the Russian auto market.

    The Sway Concept that Nissan unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show is a study that previews the next-generation Micra and the way that the Japanese manufacturer is experimenting in order to see how it can bring fresh ideas to the compact segment.

    There’s very little as satisfying as the snarl and pop of a high-revving, minimally muffled turbocharged four-cylinder, and this turbo Hayabusa-powered Campagna T-Rex three-wheeler is a great example of that. It also looks like a great way to die. Okay, so maybe you’d opt to go out in something other than a 280-horsepower...

    Most people underestimate the complexity of moving out; thinking that they can do everything and they will manage just well. Well, moving out may seem like a simple thing to do, but you will actually deal with loads of stuffs and small details of planning.

    What is BAS? The emergency brake assist has been known also as BA or EBA. So when somebody asks you what is BAS, you tell them that this is a state of the art braking technology that will significantly increase the braking pressure in those dangerous road situations. And since it is scientifically proven that we as people do not apply enough pressure when we are faced with danger, I think it is good to have it around. Explanation When we step on the brake pedal, the EBA system interprets the force and the speed of this action and detects if we are trying to do an emergency stopping of the…

The original abbreviation stands for electronic stability program and it is a lateral dynamics improvement system which along with the traction control and anti-lock systems makes sure we have a more stable driving experience. How Does It Work? Skidding causes dangerous car accidents on the road and this wonderful invention is guaranteed to stop eighty percent of…

    16 Feb 2015 | 5:50 am
    How Traction Control Works/ASR/ETS TCS (traction control system) or ASR (German for Antriebsschlupfregelung) or even ETS in some vehicles is a safety component for our cars. It helps us use as much of the road traction as we can when we’re driving on those slippery low-friction surfaces. Using this system, our wheels are less likely to slip and the vehicle to not handle as well. However, if we’re trying to drive on ice, nothing will help us, not even this useful invention. So, to learn how traction control works, we have to be driving on wet, uneven, icy or loose roads or maybe even when…

We’ve seen the German car before but this is the first time we see it in metal.

The 0-100 km/h sprint is possible in 6,8 seconds when the model is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox.

    Small car. Torquey diesel. Scintillating performance. I get personal with the 2015 Volvo V40 diesel. Powersource. It’s “just” two litres in size yet manages to twist out 400 torques, from 1750 revs to 2500. Peak power is 140 kilowatts, at 4250 rpm. Sipping from a 62 litre tank at just 4.5L/100 km (claimed, combined). From a standing start (the V40 also has Stop/Start technology), there’s a momentary hesitation before the engine comes on boost and slingshots the car away. It’s front wheel drive, meaning that there’s torque steer, it feels heavy initially…

Volvo has stayed with forced induction for the T-5, it’s also downsized to a four cylinder of two litres capacity. Peak power, a not inconsiderable 180 kW, is seen at 5500 revs whilst torque, all 350 Nm of it, is mesa flat from 1500 through to 4800 revs. Again, it’s the eight speed auto that’s fitted, in keeping with Volvo’s commitment to increasing economy and decreasing emissions.

    Image taken from BTCCCrazy.co.uk Charlie Cox is often remembered as the voice of the latter part of the Super Touring era of the BTCC. Starring alongside Murray Walker in 1997 and John Watson between 1998 and 2001, Cox had a magnificent blend of excitement, drama and inimitable wit behind the microphone. However, it was not just behind the microphone that Cox made a name for himself. It was behind the wheel of his independent Mondeo in 1995 that Cox etched his entry into the evocative history of the BTCC. The 1995 BTCC season was a landmark year for the championship; it was the first time…

    Men may be daredevils on the road, but it’s the ladies who have real driving smarts. An impartial instructor would confirm that the fairer sex make more apt students. As a group, they’re good listeners and are open to learning. While guys (well, most of them) have a love affair for speed and power, women are more practical. Safety ranks high in their list of priorities. Male car enthusiasts often have the lingo and the secret handshake. Still, enthusiasm is a poor substitute for skills and knowledge. Unfortunately, we continue to live in a world where cars were identified as “macho”.

The first was when they used a dirt-resistant paint that led to a creation of a self-cleaning vehicle. If other car manufacturers followed their lead, it could have been the end for the car wash business. The…

In the case of the perfectly posh X6 SUV, the peppy cargo and people hauler goes from something nicely suited for hauling a soccer team around to a beast more at home on a Grand Prix circuit. Already outfitted with a substantial 445-horsepower engine, the men and women at the M division added two Honeywell turbochargers to generate an amazing 567 horses.

The classic kidney grill, part of the design since 1933, was originally implemented to reduce drag. The long, sloping hood helps distribute weight evenly to all four wheels. Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts. The familiar BMW logo, known as the “Roundel,” is based upon the colors in the…

But then disaster strikes – out of nowhere, a stuttering boxcar slams into your car door. You scream as your car swerves off-road, smashing into a nearby ditch with the dull thud of a football hitting a damp pitch.

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

Built around a 911 Turbo bodyshell, the new model is immediately identified by a huge rear wing, prominent vents above the front wheels and an internal roll cage. Less obvious – but instrumental to achieving an unladen weight of only 1,420 kg (3,130 lbs) – are the carbon fibre engine and luggage compartment covers, a titanium exhaust silencer and a uniquely-shaped magnesium roof panel. Other racing-influenced standard features include a pit lane speed limiter, centre-locking forged alloy wheels and…

    2 Mar 2015 | 2:34 pm

Encouragingly, the innovative Citroën C4 Cactus secured the runner-up spot, but a 92-point gap meant the French contender actually ended up a distant second.

    5 Mar 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Mini cars with mighty skills. Drifting is extremely fun and tempting in a regular car and with small-scale RC cars, it’s one of the coolest things ever. While at the WARU Circuit in Yokohama, Japan, the team at Kuma Films stumbled upon a group of people drifting around a miniature track with RC cars and pulling off all sorts of moves. These drifts and stunts aren’t easy, especially when you have a group of people attempting it at the same time on a mini course. When it all goes right, it’s brilliantly entertaining and fun to watch. //www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiYecg-gBuY Source: Kuma…

    Bringing the off-road to Geneva. Earlier, the team at A Kahn Design turned a few heads with their new Land Rover Defender Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6×6 Concept.

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

  • Locating Car Brake Fluid Leaks

    Brake fluid is an essential part of your car’s braking system. It is used to transfer the pressure from the footbrake into movement that in turn applies your car’s callipers to the disc brake. The first sign that you might have a leak within your brake fluid system is usually therefore indicated by the responsiveness of the footbrake pedal. If you start to notice that the pedal does not feel quite right, or that it is slightly spongy and taking longer to return to its normal position than usual, this is often the first sign that you have a problem. If the problem is particularly severe…

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

    Part of being a good metal worker is the ability to read a panel and what needs to be done to correct an issue or make the metal do what you want. Once you are "in-tune" with the metal you can correct some pretty crazy damage in a panel. This really comes in handy when you're faced with body damage. In most cases a smashed up bolt-on panel like a front fender would just warrant a call to a sheet metal supplier, a trip to the junkyard, or an eBay search, that is if you have a "common" vehicle.

Because drivetrain technology had hit its stride by then, cars like 5.0 Mustangs are still running and driving just fine. But many cars from the 80s and 90s have clear coat paint that is just peeling and flaking off in chunks. Some cars, like the Plymouth Neon, seemed to have paint and clear coat failing before they were even off lease.

    There are so many myths when it comes to proper car care in the winter that it’s pretty hard to keep them all straight. We often have customers ask us about the best ways to start their cars and get moving on cold mornings, so we decided to compile them all into one FAQ post. Q. Should I let my car warm up before driving? A. Unless your was built before 1990, the answer is no. Modern cars don’t have carburetors that need to warm up. Post-1990 vehicles should be ready to go in just 30 seconds. For more information, refer to a previous blog post. Q. Should I start my car every day…

    In a new article released by CNN, auto repair shops throughout the country are making claims that major auto insurance companies are pressuring them to use cheap or damaged parts for repairs or risk losing business. In some cases, these faulty parts can make a vehicle dangerous to drive. However if the shop refuses to make the cheap repairs, the insurance company will steer business away and point their clients toward a shop that is willing to go along with the program. While most major insurance companies deny these claims, more than 500 garages from 36 states are joining in a lawsuit…

    Mike Mardinly
    21 Jan 2015 | 8:44 am
    For many, winter mornings begin by letting the car warm up while they finish breakfast. While this time does allow for the cab to get toasty warm, are you aware that there is no actual need for that idling? In fact, unnecessary idling could be hurting your health and wallet. Before the 1980’s, idling was a necessary practice for American drivers. Back then, carburetors needed time to warm up in order to get the right mix of fuel and air to start. However, automakers began swapping carburetors for fuel injector systems in the ’80’s. Modern fuel injector systems regulate the…

    It comes as no surprise that Toyota remained number-one in terms of number of vehicles sold in 2014. The company has been holding the pole position for some time now and even now, it seems unlikely they will let go anytime soon.

It all depends on how the company is able to deal with the challenges it is expected to face in the current year. Let's see if Toyota's smooth ride lasts.

    4 Mar 2015 | 5:31 pm
    The maddest and most powerful incarnation of the Lamborghini Aventador supercar gets revealed at the Geneva motor show.  Lamborghini has revealed its maddest bull yet at this week’s Geneva motor show, the new Aventador LP750-4 SV. The SV is designed to be a harder, faster and more track-focused version of the standard 690hp Aventador V12 supercar. It uses the same 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, but revisions to its variable valve timing system and exhaust mean the engine in the SV develops 740hp. That’s enough to slash the standard car’s 0-62mph time from 2.9 seconds to 2.8…

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

    Tim Wright was one of the co-founders of Tesla Motors. In fact, he says he is the one who pitched the idea of electric cars to Elon Musk.

    Is Gas In Our Future? While electric vehicles get a lot of attention currently, there is another alternative fuel that is among the most abundant and clean burning available.

    I doubt there’s been a week since I sold my Soarer that I haven’t tripped over another Toyota Soarer somewhere. Whether they’re the Twin Turbo or V8 variety, it seems Australia imported over a tonne of Z30 models over the years and now given their relatively low price, they can be found pretty everywhere. (So it’s now up there with Commodores, Falcons and once upon a time the Hyundai Excel). What you rarely see however, is the earlier second generation Z20 models running around – which is a shame really because they look the business and scream 80’s more…

This is odd, because the glory days of rally were much like those of F1, where the stars were real personalities and death came to competitors and fans who came too close. A new flick is in the works called Group B, which is not only based on the Group B era, but also bears the same title.

Forget for the moment that there is no Canadian date this year – that appears to be a result of a communication error. The first ever Trans-Am race was held on an old airforce training base called Sebring, located in Florida on March 25, 1966. Bob Tullius won the over 2,000 cc class at that race driving a Dodge Dart.

    Although there were plenty of other exotic cars for us to gawk at the duPont REGISTRY LIVE Hangar Party, which kicks of the 2015 Boca Concours d’Elegance, there was a pair of Lamborghinis that kept calling Andrew’s name. If you haven’t figured out by now, one of my co-host Andrew’s favorite cars of all time is the Lamborghini Countach. The wedge-shaped design which has bled over into every Lamborghini model produced since, is probably the reason why Andrew has us stop and gawk at any and every Lamborghini we come across! So when we came across the Aventador and Huracán that were…

    A couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of watching hundreds of imports, domestics, classics, and exotics swarm over the parking lot of JM Lexus for the JM Custom Creations Elite Import Bash. We were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of vehicles that were in attendance – so much so that we only managed to snap a few pictures of our own! Luckily, our buddy Wilfred from Street Inferno came through in the…ahem, clutch…and sent us over some of the awesome shots he was able to snag. Check out the gallery below, and send us your own photos from your local shows any time…
  • How Not To Be A Jerk: The 10 Commandments of Car Show Etiquette

    You know what’s fun? Pointing out the flaws in other people. Sure, we aren’t “supposed” to do it, but we all do. Just take a look at how popular our 5 (Un)written Rules For Car Show Attendees post was! Know what isn’t as fun, though? Looking in the mirror and pointing out our own flaws. Many of us have been in or around the car show scene for a long time now, and we believe we know how to act. However, just this past weekend Alex and I bore witness to just what can happen when things get out of hand. Guys, it’s time for a dose of our own medicine; Following…

  • Texas C6 Corvettes duke it out on the drag strip

    VetteTV
    5 Mar 2015 | 1:21 pm
    Take one C6 Corvette ZR1, pit it against a heavily modified twin-turbo C6 Z06, and you’re bound to have an awesome quarter mile face off. Unfortunately things didn’t go exactly according to plan here, as the Z06 had a poor launch, and was seemingly having some grip issues at the top end, but it still hit an impressive 166 mph, and the video sounds pretty epic. Turn up your speakers and let us know your thoughts! If you’re shopping for a new or used Corvette be sure and stop by the market here.   The post Texas C6 Corvettes duke it out on the drag strip appeared first…
  • Oliver Gavin hits up the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in a C7 Corvette Z06

    Chevrolet is committed to making the new C7 Corvette a global success, and with magazines like the U.K.’s TopGear adorning the new Z06 with accolades, it’s clear they are well on their way. For the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Chevy showed up to the party with a handful of Corvettes and Camaros, plus they brought along four-time Le Mans winning driver Oliver Gavin to show the new Z06 off. Job well done as Gavin pulled up to Geneva spectacle in a brand new yellow Z06, decked out in his full Corvette Racing attire. You can be sure plenty of carparazzi were on hand to snap away.

  • C6 Corvette Z06 gets “Drifty” on track

    Exotics Racing in Las Vegas is a well known driving experience program that integrates classroom education, high-speed ride alongs, and laps on-track with one-on-one coaching from a racing instructor. With that being said we’d venture to guess this Corvette C6 Z06 driver skipped the classroom part and left the race coach on the sidelines. We’re just kidding of course, this is Exotic Racing’s Z06 track drift experience they offer to its customers for $99. Check out the video here for a POV of the 2-hot lap thrill ride.

    Last week we posted up a thoroughly enjoyable “real world” review from the guys at Everyday Driver, who pitted the mighty Camaro Z/28 against the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Today as bonus for us gear-heads, we come across this two minute clip of raw footage from that review, consisting only of sights and sounds of the big bad Chevy, and lets just say it’s rather eargasmic! So grab a beer, sit back, relax, and turn up your speakers, and thank us later!   The post Two glorious minutes of Camaro Z28 rumblings appeared first on VetteTV.

    In this edition of “Wayback Wednesday”, we travel back to the summer of 2013 when funny Jay Leno was visited by Al Oppenheiser, Chief Engineer at General Motors, and the new (at the time) Camaro Z/28. Jay was the first person outside of GM to give a America’s newest track star a thorough test. As a refresher, the Camaro Z/28 features a massive 500-hp, 7.0-liter dry-sump LS7 V-8, mated to a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission, carbon brakes, and standard limited-slip diff. Always a great selection of new and used Camaros for sale here. The post Camaro Z28 visits…

  • Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 200AS caught testing in Pune, likely to be launched in May!

    Bajaj has always pushed the envelope when it comes to innovation. It has played a major role in molding and shaping up the Indian 2-wheeler segment. The two wheeler manufacturer revolutionized the market with the launch of classics like the Chetak and Pulsar. Both those models have been the epitome of their respective segments. Though the Chetak has been discontinued, the Pulsar legacy still lives on. Bajaj was the first company to introduce a fun to ride, 150 cc motorcycle that looked as good as it rode. Bajaj plans to milk this cash cow, and has introduced many variants of the Pulsar. The…
  • What makes SUV’s so popular?

    So what makes a Sports Utility vehicle so popular? We live in a generation where 4WD SUV’s roam city streets, rather than off them. So many SUV’s seldom go their intended path. SUV’s are tough vehicles and are meant to be thrown into the wild. They can munch miles on the highway, and go to places, which will make hatchbacks wet their pants. Yet I see so many of them owned by wealthy businessmen and corporate honchos, who wouldn’t utilize even half of their SUV’s potential. What’s the use of having a 3.0 liter 4WD Fortuner, when it’s going to be spending most of its time…

  • Yamaha R15 gets two new colours to choose from!

    2 Mar 2015 | 2:11 am
    The Yamaha R15 was launched in 2011, after which it hasn’t received any new mechanical (or cosmetic) upgrades. Last year the company released new colours for the customers to choose from, but apart from that nothing major. When the bike was launched with two new colours last year, though no official statement was made, dealers claimed new upgrades had been made on the bike. They claimed the bike had received a new O2 sensor, and had been upgraded to have better throttle response This time however, the Yamaha R15 bike has received new colours and no mechanical changed whatsoever. The new…

    Here’s a video of two legendary McLaren cars flexing their muscles on a racetrack. The McLaren F1 was a car way ahead of its time. The P1 too, when launched, was way ahead of its time in terms of design as well as engine capability. The McLaren P1 is nothing short of a scientific masterpiece. It’s the perfect combination, where science meets art. The McLaren F1 GTR is one up on the P1. The car has used different materials to help reduce its weight, and make its body design more functionally aerodynamic. It’s a beautiful piece of machinery, which goes very, VERY FAST! The track specific…
