    Probably for the first time I drove on a rough road at night. Ivan see a slight vibration in the light on the road. It's mainly low down and off to the corner a bit. Not a problem if it because the headlights are mounted on rubber or something, but maybe if something's loose. Anyone noticed anything similar? Or know how the headlights are mounted.
  • Driving Home the Idea of Safety

    The College Driver News
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:40 pm
    Everyone should take road safety seriously, from motorists to pedestrians, from parents to lawmakers. Children must be taught how to perceive traffic danger at a young age so that they will be able to avoid accidents, and parents should act as role models, exhibiting good driving behaviour and following the rules of the road.   All drivers have to take the theory and hazard perception tests to get their licences. The UK has one of the best road safety records in the world, but more can be done to prevent serious injuries…

  • Redesigned 2015 Toyota Camry Debuts at NYIAS

    Automedia News
    16 Apr 2014 | 3:37 am
    In response to its reputation as a vanilla economy sedan, the 2015 Toyota Camry has debuted at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) with new looks and attitude to ramp up excitement. The Camry is already the best-selling car in America, and Toyota believes the changes will make it even more competitive against the Altima, Accord and Fusion. The most obvious change is to the exterior, replacing the bland former design with a more attention-grabbing look. The 2015 Camry sports a gaping black front grille reminiscent of the current Lexus spindle grille, plus a more curvaceous…

  • 2014 NYIAS: 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe – Heir to the CL Class and SEC throne

    Sawyer Sutton
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Call it what you like, but this long wheelbase coupe sold alongside Mercedes’ flagship S-Class sedan appears to be a sublime mix of luxury and overtaking power. With 585 horsepower and 663 ft-lbs of torque, a 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 is fettered by 143 fewer pounds than in the CL 65 that it replaces (somewhere in the neighborhood of 4,700 lbs). AMG’s variant of 4Matic all wheel drive is an option to nail the power down and, depending upon configuration, this two-ton bruiser can take a peek at 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. and is limited to 155 mph. Pricing for the S-Class Coupe has…

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:59 am
    Though the shape is no stranger, it’s still nice to see Alfa’s booth here at the show. In the coming year, Alfa will offer up 1,000 copies of their 4C sports car as pictured above. Though much of this car’s appeal is in the aesthetics, even more is in its performance. 0-60 happens in 4.5 seconds, 1.1g gets pulled on the skidpad, the car weighs 2,103 lbs, and there are 240 horsepowers and 350 ft lbs of torques. Everything is carbon fiber, and, like the BMW i3, that construction is very real and obvious, thanks to high, unpainted sills and other surfaces throughout…
  • 2014 NYIAS: BMW offers up the 2015 4 series Gran Coupe

    Sawyer Sutton
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:05 pm
    Having increased the number of trim levels from 30-something to 80-something in the past 7 years, BMW has filled nearly every niche they can and, at the end of the day, decided to create a few more despite allegedly only selling about 5% more cars. With possibly the most attractive four-door coupe this side of the Audi A7, BMW tried a couple of times to get this design right: previous attempts include the 3 Series Gran Turismo, 3 Series sedan and the X4. Offered with the N20 2 liter turbo four putting out 240 horsepower and the N55 3 liter turbo six with 306 horsepower, the 4 Gran Coupe is a…
  • 2014 NYIAS: Invisible, Self-Driving, Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept

    Sawyer Sutton
    16 Apr 2014 | 11:16 am
    Borrowing heavily from the Ford Explorer, the new Disco concept is a mass of softened edges, and fuel economy boosting curves. With a C-pillar that vaguely resembles the 1st generation Mercedes M-Class, Land Rover is playing quite conservative and while a rounded Discovery is a nascent concept, the design language shown here is an evolution of what we have already seen on the newer Range Rover.

    Sawyer Sutton
    16 Apr 2014 | 11:05 am
    20% stiffer than the fixed-head previous generation C6 Z06, the convertible version of America’s sports car is no longer just designed to draw 11s on the pavement, bite you if you don’t drive it on the track, and fold in half under the twist found in the 625 bhp and 635 ft-lbs from the car’s 6.2 liter supercharged LT4 V8, which can be hooked up to an 8-speed automatic or a 7 speed manual with automatic rev matching. Though the power may be straightforward, the strengthening and weight savings may not be. The body is a beautiful hodge podge of carbon fiber and sheetmetal. The…

  • GM Saved From ‘Park It Now’ Order, Looks To Strengthen Liability Protections

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    The Detroit News reports U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos delivered a six-page ruling in favor of General Motors, saving the automaker from issuing a “park it now” order that would have proved costly both financially and in reputation. Had the order gone forward, it would have set a precedent that not even the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration could attempt in its limited penalty power. The attorney representing the plaintiffs in the lawsuit for the order, Robert Hilliard, may appeal. In other legal news, GM has filed a request with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court…

    In an interview with Bloomberg at the 2014 New York Auto Show, Volkswagen America CEO Michael Horn says the Phaeton will return to the United States market as early as 2018. Autoblog reports the full-size luxury sedan — which last sold in 2006 on our shores — has been under consideration by the automaker for a return sometime between 2018 and 2019. No word has been given on whether or not the 2018 Phaeton will be underpinned by the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, as it was the last time the sedan was sold. Whether the return will be marred once more by customers scoffing at the…

    After several years of dormancy, Ford revived the Escort name for a concept sedan at last year’s Shanghai Motor Show. That concept is now production-ready, and will make its debut this weekend at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. Autoblog reports the Escort will be made locally in China through a joint venture, and may sport either a three- or four-cylinder powerplant driving the front wheels. As for other global markets, an Escort was spotted in Europe earlier this month undergoing testing, but nothing more has come of it.

    For those who opt to save $11,000 by selecting the 2015 BMW 228i Coupe over the M235i, a new Track Handling Package will soon join the options list to help bring the coupe on par with the M235i’s handling skills. Though power will remain the same — a 240-horsepower four cylinder — Autoblog reports the package will enhance the 228i Coupe’s handling through BMW’s Adaptive M Suspension, Variable Sport Steering, and for stopping power, M Sport Brakes. A set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels aid in delivering the goods to the road.

    In an effort to help boost lagging sales, the 2015 SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Edition was unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show. The Viper ACE will be limited to 50 units, with the last 10 receiving both a Time Attack package injection and matte gunmetal “Metallic Matte” paint. Orange stitching in the upholstery and gunmetal bezels make up the rest of the story. As for how much, it may fall under the standard SRT Viper’s base of $100,000, though SRT has yet to say anything on pricing.

  • Jetta CC? VW Challenges Mercedes’ CLA With a Small(ish) Four-Door Coupe Concept [2014 Beijing Auto Show]

    Jens Meiners
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:18 pm
    The concept of a four-door coupe, pioneered by the Mercedes-Benz CLS and taken up by Volkswagen with the Passat CC, can be taken downmarket. Following the introduction of Benz’s boldly styled CLA, VW is following suit with a four-door “mid-size concept” to be introduced at the 2014 Beijing auto show. Volkswagen’s concept is 181 inches long, 56 inches tall, and 72.4 inches wide, about an inch shorter and lower than the Jetta sedan, but more than two inches wider. Complementing the concept’s low, wide stance are 20-inch wheels wrapped with 245/40 rubber. The mid-size…

    Vezel is dead. No, we’re not talking about some unfortunate Russian dissident, but the new Japanese home-market subcompact crossover that’s based on Honda’s natty (and 10Best–winning in past years) subcompact Fit hatchback. Actually, the Fit-based cute-ute is still coming to the U.S., but has been renamed HR-V to conform to the acronym-based naming strategy that sired the CR-V, its larger cousin. The letters will adorn the little crossover once production of the America-bound version starts later this year at Honda’s new Fit assembly plant in Celaya, Mexico. The HR-V recently was…

    We were already enthusiastic about the new 2-series coupe, but BMW turned up the volume with the announcement of a Track Handling package option for the 228i. There’s an $11,000 difference between the base 228i and the much sportier M235i, and BMW is using the new package to bridge that gap. The Track Handling package will consist of four elements: adaptive suspension, special Michelin Pilot tires on 18-inch wheels, variable sport steering, and upgraded brakes. The package is offered on all 228i coupes, whether equipped with the six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. With the adaptive…

    According to a rather florid press release, the 2016 Mazda Miata chassis on display at the New York auto show is book parts. To wit: “With no richly layered, character line-laden sheetmetal to hide beneath, the Skyactiv-Chassis lays out a narrative of MX-5′s continuing story with a perfectly arranged table of contents.” To parse that a wee bit, it means the fourth-gen example of the erstwhile Eunos Roadster will apparently wear some bold implementation of the company’s Kodo design language, giving us an excuse to exclaim, “KODO: SOUL OF MOTION” and revel in the warm whonngggg…

    Ah, Subaru. While the company has made great strides in going mainstream over the past few years, they still are not quite on the radar for the casual car buyer, who cannot be bothered to think about cars. You buy a Subaru because you seek one out. Sure, the easy thing is to just walk into a Honda or Toyota showroom, but even as Subaru is losing its quirkiness and expanding their appeal, their legion of fans remain loyal. I should know, I have relatives who have owned Subaru’s for nearly thirty years. And I get the appeal. My cousin taught me how to drive a stick shift in his 1976…

    While some race car drivers are happy to pursue the dream in one series or another, real racers can often be found spending their personal time racing other types of cars. Those guys tend to be the ones that compete in different series at the same time and when the paying rides in one series dry up, they head to some other form of motorsport. They race because they have to in order to fuel their passion. It would seem that Arie Luyendyk Jr. is just one of those guys.

The flick featured lots of incredibly cheesy 80s Euro synth tunes and fantastic footage of the most fearsome cars ever built, complete with flames and jumps. Also on tap was a decent amount of in car footage, something we didn’t see too often at that time. There was one particular scene that featured the fancy footwork of one Walter Rohrl.

    When Hyundai entered the luxury market in 2008 with the Genesis, it had a lot to prove. Feature for feature, the car showed it could hold its own among more established luxury brands and become a modest success, which led Hyundai to reach even higher with the Equus. With the all-new, second-generation 2015 Genesis, Hyundai still has to try harder to prove that it can compete. For example, the 2015 Genesis has many of the advanced features found on cars in this class: heated and ventilated 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof and driver assists such as automatic emergency braking to…

For years, the company (which owns MSN) has provided a majority of the software for automakers’ infotainment systems, and it became a major part of the branding for the Ford Sync system. But as automotive infotainment has evolved toward integrating smartphones to bring cloud-based content and services into a vehicle, Microsoft wants to move beyond supplying embedded software.

    London’s boxy black taxi cabs are as iconic as the city’s double-decker buses and Big Ben. But their mostly diesel engines also add to London’s air pollution. Mayor Boris Johnson, for example, recently set a goal for all of London’s taxis to become zero-emission by 2018. The most obvious and British-based answer to meeting this objective is the extended-range plug-in taxi from Metrocab. Produced by the English sports car and engineering company Frazer-Nash, the Metrocab uses a 1.0-liter gasoline engine along with a 12.2-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Mayor Johnson gave a thumbs-up…

    Debate the looks of the 2015 Infiniti QX80 all you want. Actually, you don't have to. It's always going to look like a melted brick. A melted brick with chrome portholes that still manage to look like a $12 add-on. Too bad, because it's actually really nice.Read more...

  • The BMW i8 Is Wonderful Because It Feels Like The Future

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    When I was a kid, I used to try and imagine what kind of cars we would drive in the far-flung future year of Two Thousand Fourteen. Would they fly? Would they hit unfathomable speeds with amazing new technology? Would they look just like concept cars? I love the BMW i8 because it delivers on that promise. Read more...

    NEW YORK — Volkswagen  debuted a concept version of what is destined to become the Golf SportWagen, which replaces the Jetta SportWagen in the automaker’s U.S. lineup. The move follows Volkswagen’s U.S. introduction of the 2015 Golf. The Jetta SportWagen was actually a previous-generation Golf variant and was sold as such in other markets.  The take rate for the diesel-powered version of the Jetta SportWagen in the United States was consistently upwards of 80%. The new Golf SportWagen is lighter than the current model, due to its use of high and ultra-high strength steels.  The…

  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Jeep Renegade

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

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

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

My personal history with the Lexus IS dates to when my father spent an inordinate amount of time at the local Toyota/Lexus dealer in the early part of the last decade snapping up most of their low-mileage…
  • Review: 2014 Toyota Tundra SR5 4×4 CrewMax

    Chris Haak
    6 Jan 2014 | 5:00 am
    It’s hard to overstate what huge plans Toyota had for the its then-new Tundra pickup, circa 2007.  The company spent a fortune developing their jumbo-sized 2007 Tundra, talking to people who used trucks (though every truck manufacturer says they do that), shedding the “good but small” mantra of the first-generation Tundra and going with a truck that went toe-to-toe with the dominant American-brand pickups.  Toyota even built an all-new factory for the Tundra in San Antonio, Texas, in the heart of truck country.  Strong initial sales tapered off, and the Tundra remained an…

  • 2015 Chrysler 200 Rated at 36 MPG Highway

    mpg-o-editor
    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…

    MPG-o-Matic 2014 BMW 328d Sport Wagon xDrive Review Summary: The BMW 328d xDrive isn’t just the most fuel efficient all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle sold in America today, it’s a marvelously fun to drive alternative to the gas-sucking SUV. We found the 328d’s official fuel economy ratings (31/43/35) to be conservative and easily achieved highway figures in the 50 mile per gallon (MPG) range. What if an automaker rolled out the most fuel-efficient AWD on the market but held off on the fanfare? What if that highly capable all-season machine rode on rails and was capable of…

  • Getting Real with Synthetic Fluids – Part I

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jan 2014 | 4:23 am
    Synthetic fluids are a cornerstone of Ain’t Fuelin’s Mindful Maintenance program. They offer a higher level of protection for the drivetrain, reduced friction, and the potential for an incremental improvement in fuel efficiency. All that said, one of the best parts about switching to synthetic oil is the increase in the number of miles driven between oil changes. In the video that accompanies this post, I demonstrate how easy it is to perform a D-I-Y oil change on a (slightly) lifted Jeep Wrangler TJ. We affectionately call our ’98 TJ “The Heep.” It’s also known as “The…

    While increasing the fuel efficiency of passenger vehicles is a stated goal of government of the United States of America, our appointed officials have allowed the perpetuation of a tax that penalizes the owners of certain vehicles. Although our government has put forth a great effort to encourage the adoption of vehicles that include some form of electrification, little has been done to due the same for clean diesel-powered vehicles. One could almost say that they’ve been discouraged. The U.S. Government levies a tax on diesel fuel that is six cents per gallon greater then the…

    Engineers wanted to do something truly revolutionary with the new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible unveiled in New York this week: Make it as light, strong and capable as the coupe. Cutting off the roof certainly makes that a tall task. But the 2015 Z06 Convertible boasts some incredible figures that suggest it will give the coupe a run for its money. Using new technologies like an all-aluminum structure and laser welds, the 2015 Z06 Convertible has a nearly identical curb weight to the coupe despite the extra weight from its power top. Combine that with the same performance…

  • 2015 Hyundai Sonata Grows Up In NYIAS Introduction

    16 Apr 2014 | 5:59 am
    On the heels of their most successful model ever, Hyundai today introduced the updated 2015 Sonata with hopes of pushing the bar up even higher. The new Sonata is again interestingly styled, but in a different direction from the long swooping lines that drew new buyers to the old model. This is a more grown up Sonata, in more ways than one. The 2009 predecessor to the 2015 Sonata blew the doors off the segment, with shocking style and interior quality for the money. After a boom in sales that spread throughout the brand, the Sonata lost some of its luster as competitors caught up. The…

    In response to its reputation as a vanilla economy sedan, the 2015 Toyota Camry has debuted at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) with new looks and attitude to ramp up excitement. The Camry is already the best-selling car in America, and Toyota believes the changes will make it even more competitive against the Altima, Accord and Fusion. The most obvious change is to the exterior, replacing the bland former design with a more attention-grabbing look. The 2015 Camry sports a gaping black front grille reminiscent of the current Lexus spindle grille, plus a more curvaceous…

The most common examples today are the parcel vans used by UPS, FedEx, DHL, and your friendly neighborhood letter carrier.

    We here at the Car Lust garage have somewhat discussed this before... the lack of any real color choices (Except for what shade of grey/silver you might fancy) on today's cars. But I am here today to say that at least on a few models, a delicious shade of metallic brown has returned. This Lincoln MKZ Concept Car shows a deep choclate-looking hue: Trucks also once again come in brown. The 2014 Toyota Tundra is certainly anything but Camry Beige. Ford's F-150 also offers a nice, rich brown. Even MINI offers an "Iced Chocolate" that's hard to turn down: Do you like the…

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:49 am
    The prestigious New York Auto Show is currently in progress. This morning as part of the show in New York, Porsche's GT3 was presented the award of "2014 World Performance Car".

The WCAs are presented each year, divided into four categories: Car Design, Green Car, Performance Car, and Car of the Year. Winners are determined by an international panel consisting of sixty-nine members of the automotive media hailing from 22…

    The Collier family has a long history with automobiles and motorsport. Using their success in subway and rail car advertising as a springboard, the Colliers would go on to found the car club that would become the SCCA, have great success at Le Mans, and grow one of the most extensive collections of cars, and automotive literature in the world. The Collier Collection and related "Revs Institute" in Naples, Florida, have a world renowned reputation for excellence, and until recently, have been kept under wraps to public visits. In the mid-1980s, Miles Collier, a third generation sportscar…
  • Did You Know That Each Team Is Allocated Fuel On A Per Lap Basis During The 24 Hours Of Le Mans?

    Pepper Girl
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:23 pm
    That's right, each team is allocated a certain amount of fuel, petrol or diesel for each lap covered. There is a slight margin for error and drivers can make up mistakes made during one lap in the next two laps (basically giving them a three lap window to stay within their allotted fuel amount). If they are unable to stay within their allocated amount (corrected or otherwise) then they are penalized with a stop and go or drive-through penalty. This 4th video (in 12 video series) from the Automobile Club de l’Ouest explains how the fuel itself is playing a part in helping teams to reach a…
  • Porsche 928 V8 Powered Street Rod For Sale

    Bradley Brownell
    14 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    What do you do if you're a hot-rod fan that wants to stick out from the crowd? If you've ever been to a street-rod show, you'll know that many of the cars on display use the same visual cues, they all use Chevrolet small-block V8s stuffed into fiberglass recreations of 1932 Ford "three window" bodies. It's all a bit homogenized, a bit boring, to be frank. This little drop-top Ford does things differently. Using a proper Porsche 928 V8 overhead cam engine, this hot rod makes a rumble that is distinctly German sounding. While the body is still that instantly familiar Ford roadster shape, the…
  • Take A Hot Lap In The Porsche 918 Spyder With Patrick Long

    14 Apr 2014 | 8:40 am
    Last week we showed you what launch control in the Porsche 918 spyder looks and sounds like. This week's video features Porsche factory driver Patrick Long on a hot lap around the Circuit of the Americas. Watch as the Porsche 918 exits pit lane under all-electric mode, accelerates under sport hybrid mode, and uses the hot-lap button on the back straight at 170 mph. The "Hot Lap" function releases the final reserves of the 918 Spyder and can only be activated from the "Race Hybrid" mode. Basically, pushing the hot lap button provides maximum power output for a few fast laps by utilizing all of…

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1963 Kellison J6

    Daniel Strohl
    18 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Buying a car from the original owner can be a rather special experience – you get to hear from no less assailable source the reasons why the car was ordered or bought, any reasons behind certain upgrades or modifications to the car, and all the human interest stories that go along with it. But the one thing most original owners can’t tell you is the details of how the car was built. The seller of this 1963 Kellison J6 on Hemmings.com, however, can – he says he bought the body straight from Jim Kellison and built the car himself specifically for street use, and has apparently…

Most men try flowers to make things right with their wife and get out of the doghouse, but when you’re married to Rita Hayworth, you gotta try a little harder than that – after all, not even a one-of-two Italian-bodied Cadillac was enough to get her back. For the judges at this past weekend’s La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, however, the same Cadillac had enough cachet to take a Best of Show award. In the early 1950s, Italian coachbuilder Ghia looked to stabilize its business by developing concepts or vehicles for a…

Unlike many in the hobby, his tastes run to more than a single brand or model; instead, the bulk of his cars are from domestic manufacturers, built in the late 1930s to early 1950s. There are exceptions to the rule, such as his 1966 Jaguar or 1960 MGA, but all have one thing in common, regardless of vintage or manufacturer: As of this writing, they’re for sale.

  • Tech 101 – What oil viscosity ratings mean

    Jim O'Clair
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    Choosing the correct oil viscosity can be an important factor in determining the life expectancy and performance of your engine. Using the correct-viscosity oil can also keep the engine running at its peak efficiency, and plays a small part in the overall fuel economy of your vehicle. Modern engines have very different viscosity requirements over vintage engines, and manufacturers invest a lot of time and money to determine which mixture of oil and oil additives will work best with their engine components. This is why you often see original equipment recommendations for new weight ranges that…
  • Would you buy this Buick for $75?

    Thomas A. DeMauro
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Photo courtesy GM. Back in the 1980s, scanning the local want ads for muscle cars was a weekly ritual. Regardless of whether or not I had money, I could easily formulate any scenario necessary to justify looking for another car. Truth be told, I can still do it today. It doesn’t matter how many unfinished projects I have, it always seems that just one more would be better. One Monday afternoon in the mid-1980s, while perusing a fresh edition of the Want Ad Press, I came upon what seemed like the deal of a lifetime. It was a 1967 Buick GS 340 for just $75! It had to be a typo, right?

It’s the 320i — and it comes with a slightly less powerful version of the 2.0 liter engine found in the 328i . . . and a 36 MPG (highway) EPA rating. It also comes with a $32,750 sticker price — vs. $37,300 for the more powerful (and thirstier) 328i.

    14 Apr 2014 | 8:35 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Trucks, like high-performance sports cars — like minivans for that matter — are specialty vehicles. Which means they’re compromised vehicles. Some things, they’re very good at — usually, much better at them than a jack-of-all-trades family car. A high-performance sports car, for instance, can be driven faster around a race track (or your favorite winding country road) than a family car before it approaches the limits of its ability to hold the road. But the flip slide of this extra capability here is less capability there. To…

He didn't just pluck a random 911 off a dealer lot. He specially ordered his car with thousands of dollars in extras tailored just to him, and he captured all of the options on his YouTube channel. The love affair didn't last long. Eventually the channel became a place for Nick to air his growing list of grievances about his deteriorating 911. Eventually, his mix of righteous indignation and sarcasm went viral.

There is a likely hood that the film will not be a huge success, with movie review sites such as The Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic giving the movie 23% and 37% retrospectively, although interestingly enough IMDB has given the movie a much more decent score of 7.5/10.

    With the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen concept, now bowing at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, the German automaker heralds the all-wheel-drive diesel hatchback as a "bigger, more spacious, and more fuel-efficient replacement for the Jetta SportWagen."

    An AE86 Is For LifeThe perfect companion What is car life? There is no definitive answer to this question, and that’s a great thing. It could be the guy that saves up his money for years so he can go down to the dealership and buy the car of his dreams. It could be the wealthy guy with a garage full of rare classics that he sometimes drives and sometimes just stands back and admires. It could be the fellow that spends every weekend at the race track trying to shave fractions of seconds off lap times, or the person who has spent countless hours on a build or restoration without even firing…

To be honest, I’ve thought the same thing at times. It’s like when there’s a band or song you like but then you start to hear the song every time you turn on the radio. You get tired of it pretty quickly. Overexposure can damage even the coolest, most interesting stuff.

    Gripping With A Drift Car?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EA6W8ra9qkI Max Orido has been working hard to set himself a challenge in D1. His ZN6 has taken a great deal of work to get right since he first debuted it a few seasons ago, and during it all often didn’t yield the best results. But since then the Lexus IS F-sourced 5.0L V8 engine that originally powered the Toyota has given way to a more reliable LS7 swap, and thanks to a little ‘gas’ is able to produce 700hp and 90kg/m. As you can imagine, that amount of horsepower and torque comes in quite handy when your aim is travelling…

    15 Apr 2014 | 6:28 pm
    Volvo is synonymous with safety, so perhaps it’s no surprise that the automaker just unveiled its very own child seat concept. But leave it to the Swedish brand to put its own unique spin on this basic, ubiquitous safety  device. Aiming for a lightweight, less bulky alternative to the traditional child seat, Volvo came up with an inflatable concept made of drop-stitched fabric. It can be inflated in less than 40 seconds and weighs just 11 pounds. When not in use, Volvo’s concept can be deflated just as quickly. And, it can be stowed in a weekend bag together with other necessities for…

There is a full range of exciting engine options to compliment the sporty new NX. This includes a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine for models donning NX 200t and NX 200t F Sport badges.

    As a teenager, I drove a 1984 Honda Accord. It was charcoal gray, just like every other 1984 Accord in existence. On more than one occasion I remember walking up to the wrong one, even putting my hand on the door handle, before realizing it wasn’t my car. For me, the first indication that it wasn’t mine was the lack of a wet towel jammed between the leaky sunroof and the headliner to prevent rainwater from dousing my head. While it would’ve been nice to drive away in a car with leak-proof roof, I never did steal anyone’s car in place of mine. Many years later my mom…

    Toyota or Lexus? Can the most boring car in the world be transformed into something exciting? When a car is meant as a reliable and practical mode of transportation, it inherently isn’t exciting. When a car winds up in as many rental fleets as driveways, we can assume it’s not a car that’s driven by auto enthusiasts. While there’s nothing offensive about the styling of cars like these, they will never catch your eye, either. Yesterday we took some shots at Lexus for pushing the design envelope too far, and now there’s news that the 2015 Toyota Camry is following…

    Radical styling in a mass-market car doesn’t usually make sense, which is why it rarely happens. Think of the Hondas and Toyotas of the world and you’ll conjure up visions of bland four-door sedans and efficiently shaped crossovers. They are fine looking automobiles, of course, but nothing that’ll cause whiplash in a passerby. Hyundai and Kia started to change things with designs that demanded attention and helped justify increasing prices. Just compare a 2014 Optima with a 2008 Optima and you’ll see my point. Over the years, Lexus fell into a design category perhaps…

If I’m not mistaken, the last 4-cylinder Porsche was the 1995 968. It’s been said that no other car in history has inspired more conversations with the Lord, especially at highway speeds in the rain. A bit underpowered yet a challenge to control and with a ride that could graciously be described as “harsh,” the 968 soon gave way to the now-legendary Boxster. That’s the car that established the…

Check out these photos of a rather dapper, though casual, McCartney as he took his C5 Corvette on a “long and winding road” Tuesday that ended at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Looking rather slim and trim, the rocker seemed to be enjoying his time behind the wheel of his Corvette, which he purchased in 2005 and reportedly loves climbing behind the wheel whenever he is in the…

Recent technological advancements enable the building of a modern Z06 Convertible, said Corvette chief engineer Tadge…

    Ferrari’s attempts to try and pull some positives away from a dismal week in Bahrain came unstuck as the Fernando Alonso was forced to withdraw from testing after just 12 laps. In the first of four in-season tests, Ferrari had been testing their new turbo hybrid engine in a bid to try and find some extra pace out of a struggling car, as well as focusing on a lack of traction and driveability from a power-unit that has failed to deliver. After a modest first day of testing, Ferrari failed to find any real answers to their problems after recording just 12 laps on Day Two in Bahrain, topping…
  • Nissan Leaf the Overwhelming Choice for EV Drivers Worldwide

    admin
    4 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    Although electric vehicles (EV) make up a small percentage of the overall number of vehicles, the number of EVs is growing rapidly. More people have become averse to fossil-fueled cars to the point that even hybrid cars are not an acceptable option. For them, EVs are the best option for vehicles that don’t pollute from the point of operation. So far, the world leader in EV unit sales is the Nissan Leaf. The car recently passed 100,000 units sold since it was first released in 2010. Nissan expects the market to mushroom with a total of 1.5 million units worldwide by 2020. About the Leaf One…

    While running fast laps at several of the country’s most challenging tracks, Camaro Z/28 engineers noticed the tires were providing so much traction and the brakes so much stopping force that the wheels rotated inside the tire – an unexpected challenge that required fast thinking. “We were told to build a fast car – period,” said Mark Stielow, Camaro Z/28 program manager and pro-touring expert. “We knew on Day One we’d need to bring some of the best suppliers onboard to make it happen.” The suppliers included Pirelli and its P Zero™ Trofeo R tires and Brembo for…

    Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo has made its re-entry into the US market with the Alfa Romeo 4C. The 4C made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and has been wowing Europe since then. The brand by itself was set to re-enter USA last October, but a restructuring of Fiat’s European projections put that on the hold. The 4C is a mid-engined two-seater coupe that houses a turbocharged 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine making 240 hp at 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 350 Nm between 2,100 rpm and 4,000 rpm. It gets a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. The car has a length,…

The production-version of the compact crossover was first introduced in Japan at the Tokyo Motor Show last year as the Vezel. The Vezel is a huge hit in Japan, with the company getting almost 25,000 bookings within the first 3 weeks of its launch. However the company does not plan to launch the Vezel in India in the near term, as a smaller Brio-based SUV has received the green light to hit the jetstream of the Indian mini SUV market.

    Every automobile owner should have their vehicle's resale value in mind even before they attempt to sell it. Drivers can take several proactive steps to ensure that their vehicle maintains an acceptable resale value. Let's take a look at some ways to accomplish this without breaking the bank. It is important you keep your car as clean as possible. A clean car will be much easier to sell than a car with dirt, rust, and stains.

    When BMW unveiled the M3 and M4 at the Detroit Auto Show back in January, we told you that the new sportsters were starting at $62,000 and $64,200, respectively. That leaked info, though, only told a small part of the story for the new M cars. Now, we have the complete pricing sheet on the new coupe and sedan, direct from BMW. The pricing intel that we had at the time was correct – prices start at $62,000 for four doors and $64,200 for two. Those prices don’t include the $925 destination charge. Potential customers should also plan on spending an extra $550, as seven of the eight…

    No one’s going to confuse the massively popular Ford F-150 pickup truck with a green vehicle, but at least it performs well in an environmental sense when compared to its brethren. The Automotive Science Group (ASG) took on the odd (to us, at least) task of measuring which pickup trucks are friendliest to the environment and found that the big seller in the Blue Oval’s flagship F-series came up big, while the Toyota Tacoma came up, well, slightly smaller. That’s a good thing. Among the 245 light-duty trucks that ASG studied, the 3.7-liter V6-powered F-150 won ASG’s…

Though these thoughts occur to every motorcyclist, they’re less toxic…

While the two may seem worlds apart, they are borne of the same basic instincts, and that's saying something. To me, the Impreza has always been the underdog -- the one no one saw coming -- and in its latest iteration, I think that's never been truer. Is it the best compact out there? No. However, it's definitely one of the top contenders, and I don't think enough consumers are aware of just…

    Being a race car driver for the Mercedes AMG team certainly has its perks. Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton showed off the latest addition to his personal car collection on Instagram by posing with his new Mercedes Benz SLS Black Series. Of course he couldn't leave out his "old Benz" either so his white Mercedes SL Black Series was also in the shot. Source (@lewishamilton) Shout out to Grant for the tip!

    What better way to compliment your supercar collection whilst simultaneously boosting your status than adding big cats to the equation? A few months ago, Arab, Humaid Abdalla AlBuQaish gained his fifteen minutes of fame by revealing to the world his car and big cat collection via Instagram. Not only does this mega-wealthy young man possess a lion, a tiger and a cheetah, he's best friends with them. Whilst they like nothing better than using expensive Italian machinery as climbing toys, they also reciprocate the love and affection Humaid Abdalla AlBuQaish gives to them. For the rich men…

    Funny comes in all shapes and sizes; just ask Danny DeVito and Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias. It’s in your TV shows, commercials, and hidden under every banana peel. Funny is everywhere except a mortician’s office and in legal paperwork. Even then, sometimes something funny can slip through the cracks and wind up on an official traffic sign or safety sign. Work is stressful and humorless enough, but when you tack on all of the safety signs telling you what to do, it can drive you nuts. Hopefully these funny signs will help break up the tension and give you some good ideas…
  • Pony Week: 50 Years Ago Today, the World Met the Ford Mustang

    Chris Nagy
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:24 am
      April 17th 2014 marks a special day among blue oval fans as well as automotive enthusiasts in general. On this day back in 1964, the Ford Mustang was unveiled to the world. Developed as an affordable dream car, it should have been no surprise that the Mustang achieved such instant success. Instead of a planned production of 100,000 units for the first year, the 1965 Ford Mustang (starting at a $2,368 price tag reasonable even for its time) more than tripled the company’s forecast. As impressive a single year was, the 49 additional years has seen the Mustang live on has an enduring…

Accepting the fact we commonly see vehicles of future model years released ahead the actual calendar start, there are times the introduction is so deep in the previous year it is hard to classify it from the future year. Advertised as a 2015 model year car, the Audi A3 sedan is now publicly available. For European automakers, the choice has been made to play down model years with the introduction of a new vehicle leading to some confusion among the public. Introduced in April of 1964, the first-generation Ford…

It was also the first all-wheel drive Mini, which made it ideal as one of the few Coopers that can hit the beaten path when called upon.The 2015 Countryman doesn’t offer a lot of changes that…

Sure, the facelift is not as spectacular as the one seen on the Charger, but it should be enough to keep the Challenger marketable until the next-generation model arrives.Those who were looking forward to see some engine updates will end up a bit…

My 2011 Civic was better and I just rented a Chrysler 200 and the headlights were way better to light the road... Maybe it's only a question of adjustment, my truck seams to beam a little high, so not much light on the pavement. Does somebody knows if they can be adjusted? I know they are self leveling, but is there a way to change the setting?

Not a problem if it because the headlights are mounted on rubber or something, but maybe if something's loose. Anyone noticed anything similar? Or know how the headlights are mounted.

Powered by Toyota’s carry-over 1.8-liter DOHC in-line 16 valve 4, the 2014 Corolla S Premium produces 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque while earning a respectable 29 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. Thanks to the 3.9-inch longer wheelbase, the 11th generation Corolla is a better handling, roomier vehicle. The driver will notice the smoother ride quality and better connection to the pavement. Rear seat passengers should appreciate the 41.1 inches…

I was pretty happy with the changes that the brand made when launching the 2011 seventh generation model, and although I am optimistic, my opinion of the aesthetics of the 2015 model is still up in the air. I always wait to see a car in person before I make any personal judgements on styling, and sometimes I just prove myself to be the old curmudgeon who dislikes change. Time will tell!

    For decades, the prospect of electric cars has hovered around the industry, spiking interest when oil prices spiked. But eventually, relief at the pump cooled consumer desires, and few took sustained interest in electric automotive power. It was written off as impractical, expensive, trendy, or all of the above. Manufacturers stuck with improving fuel economy for gas-powered vehicles and, like the market, left electric power for later consideration. When an apparently permanent overall rise in the price of crude oil emerged in the last few years, Ford Motor Company went to the forefront…

While WVO is by no means the answer to all our transportation problems, it does have some redeeming qualities: Emissions testing of WVO shows that it produces lower levels of CO and PM (particulate matter) than diesel when tested in the same vehicle (tested…

    Audi-badged cars haven’t show up frequently at classic car auctions. Occasionally, you’ll see examples of the rare and very pretty 100 Coupé but older collectors still see pre-war Horchs and Auto Unions as the definitive collectible Audis. This is changing as the kids who were thirteen or so in the early 80s—and worshipped at the altar of the all-conquering Sport Quattro— are starting to hit their stride in terms of time and disposable income.  It all bodes extremely well for the collectability of rare and high performance Audis from the 1980s on.  Here are some of the biggest Audi…

  • Preview: The Next Audi TTS

    Nick Roshon
    21 Mar 2014 | 3:38 pm
    With all of the attention the 2015 Audi A3/S3 is getting, the new TT design has been somewhat overshadowed – but fear not these photos courtesy of Car & Driver show exactly what to expect when the refreshed Audi TT hits the states! There is no confirmed date on when we’ll see the new body style, with Audi announcing that the 2015 TT will be a carryover of the current body style – my guess is we’ll get this car either as a 2015.5 or a 2016 model, but it’s tough to say and that’s pure speculation on my part… The new body style is fairly…

However, this new batch of photos had the vehicle’s side and rear camo stripped down, which gives us a full view of its design. The front portion is still covered in gray wrapping…

    17 Apr 2014 | 5:25 pm
    The head of design for Korean brands Kia and Hyundai says there’s room for both brands to grow in different design directions and remain unique despite their close bond. Speaking to the Australian media at the New York auto show, Hyundai and Kia’s chief designer, Peter Schreyer, said the task of keeping the two brand’s characters unique is not a big challenge. “First of all I think that the two companies are quite different,” Schreyer said. “If you did not know they were brother and sister companies, nobody would even talk about the similarities anyway.” While Hyundai and Kia…
  • 2015 Subaru WRX STI Review

    17 Apr 2014 | 5:21 pm
    There’s a lot to be said for history and heritage, but it also means a car like the 2015 Subaru WRX STI also has a mighty weight to carry in motoring terms when the new kid on the block has such high standards to live up to. Subaru fans will be expecting serious performance and ability from this new STI given the brand’s reputation for rally-bred performance at a relatively affordable price. And price is where the big highlight comes for the 2015 Subaru WRX STI. Given the razor sharp starting price of $49,990 – a massive $10,000 cheaper than before – a whole host of potential new fans…

    Honda North America will turn its back on the Vezel name for the brand’s new baby SUV, instead reviving the Honda HR-V badge. The announcement came at the 2014 New York auto show where Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of automobiles for American Honda, said the new HR-V and all-new Fit (Jazz) city car will be key to the company’s success in the coming years. In Japan, the car bears the awkward name Vezel. “Both Fit and HR-V demonstrate how great things can come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda,” said Conrad.

    The all-new 2015 Subaru Outback has been revealed at the 2014 New York auto show, 20 years after the first ever Outback model was revealed in the Big Apple. The new Subaru crossover wagon carries more of the XV-style body cladding that we’ve come to expect, with new dark plastic protection plastics on the body sills and front and rear bumper bars. Roof-rails will be standard on all models, and bold front fog-lamps also feature. The new front-end styling only loosely ties the Outback to its Liberty sedan sibling, and the company admits is working hard to define the two cars as separate…

    Justifying a love for the Volkswagen Passat GT 16v may be a tall order. You only need to think about the barroom chat that will inevitably unfold once you’ve announced your new car purchase. Mate: “So, you’ve bought a B3 Passat estate?” You: “Yes, but it’s the GT 16v model, which was so much better than the 8v.” Mate: “OK, but it’s still a Passat wagon, right?” You: “Yes, but it’s got the same engine as the MK2 Golf GTi and the dashboard you’d find in a Corrado VR6.” It’s at this point you should…

    14 Feb 2014 | 4:57 am
    Renault has only gone and done it. The all-new Renault Twingo will indeed be rear-engined and rear-wheel drive. Suddenly, the 2014 Geneva Motor Show can’t come soon enough, as this will be the first chance we’ll get to set eyes on what promises to be one of the stars of the show. Aside from the obvious highlights – which naturally centre on the Twingo’s rear-end – details are predictably rather thin on the ground right now. But we do understand that Renaultsport and Gordini variants won’t be too far behind the launch of the standard car. If you can call a…

    Delphi redesigned the ignition switch for the Cadillac SRX to increase its torque around two months before it had the supplier make similar changes to the Chevrolet Cobalt ignition switch, a Delphi manager said in a letter to the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    Back in September, BMW unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) the Concept X5 eDrive. For the 2014 New York International Auto Show, BMW came back with an updated version of the Concept X5 eDrive that previews the hybrid version of the X5.

    Hyundai Eon, the last word in the category of Datsun GO and Maruti Alto K10, is bound to get a 1.0L 3-cylinder engine, instead of the existing 814cc 3-cylinder motor. The major reason for the change is to beef up the existing product instead of launching a new one to compete the new arrivals of segment. The existing engine of 814cc produces 56 PS of power at 5500 RPM and 75 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM, and it was borrowed from the Santro. Now, this all new whole one liter motor is expected to be based on the 1.2-litre Kappa of 3-cylinder. Hopefully, the enhancement in the cubic capacity will…

  • How did the Mini become so iconic?

    Aurora Johnson
    3 Apr 2014 | 8:49 am
    Has there been a single British car in automotive history that has been more iconic and quintessentially British than the Mini? It is all a matter of opinion, but looking at it from an objective point of view, the answer is probably not. There may be a handful of British cars out there that each of us like more than the Mini, but in terms of worldwide association with Britain, the Mini surely must be the clear winner. There are other cars which came into being in the sixties which are also iconic as British cars from that decade, such as the Jaguar E Type or the Triumph Spitfire. But it is…

Our machines are worthy contenders to be battling for grid position at the high end of sports car manufacturing, with Mclaren, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Bentley and…

    Volvo XC90? Released in 2002, the Volvo XC90 was an instant hit. An SUV with individual looks, it was perfect for big families in that it offered a roomy, 7-seater cabin which was utterly practical, while also incorporating the usual high level of safety that Volvo are known for. Since then, the Volvo has had only minor updates, the main one being in 2007 for the interior and exterior, and one in 2012 incorporating LED rear tail lights. However, the XC90 is still on its first-generation model and is in obvious need of an update, with the possibility of one coming in 2014. So, is it still…

From 1981 to 1998, the second generation was available and re-badged for different countries (Samurai, Sidekick, Sierra, Katana, Caribbean, SJ410 etc). From 1998 to date (2014) there’s been the third-generation Jimny and no change in shape or design, showing that the old saying ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ really applies here. The Jimny is neither an SUV or a crossover, but a true and proper 4×4 vehicle which is both rugged and…

    CarPlan Demon Foam? Once used only by professional detailers and hardcore car cleaning enthusiasts, snow foam is fast becoming a popular product for the everyday guy. Snow foam is usually used as a pre-wash product before you use shampoo and wash mitt/sponge on the vehicle. You simply hose the entire car in the stuff, leave it to settle and work its way into and under the grime on the bodywork, before rinsing it off. This removes the majority of road grime and heavy traffic film safely, before you move onto a final shampoo wash. It’s ‘safe’ in that it creates less chance of…

    The Chancellor’s new budget has outlined a number of new measures which should help motorists this year. As expected, fuel duty will be frozen until spring 2015, with the planned rise in September being abandoned. George Osborne has said this will make petrol 20 pence per litre cheaper on average than it would have been under Labour. The Budget also confirmed increases to excise duty in line with inflation, so from April 1 bands from D upwards will see their costs increase by £5 or more. Drivers will also be able to pay for their vehicle duty monthly, biannually or annually from…

    79 per cent of drivers are worried about driving, feeling that a crash could be just around the corner, according to a recent survey. This ‘Accident Anxiety’ is mostly caused by tailgating (45 per cent), road rage (41 per cent) and uninsured drivers (29 per cent), which, put together, are responsible for killing 130 people and injuring another 26,500 every year. The majority (81 per cent) of those surveyed have opted out of making a journey as a result of their worries. 83 per cent of drivers aged 35-44 years old are affected in one way or another, the highest of any age group.

    A green petrol, which will meet EU environmental regulations, is not as efficient as our current blends of renewable fuels, and could even cause an increase in CO2 exhaust emissions, according to tests carried out by What Car? magazine. The E10 fuel contains 10 per cent bio-ethanol and is being rolled-out across the UK as part of the Government’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions; aligned with the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive which requires 10 per cent of road transport energy to be sourced from renewable sources by 2020. A recent test by What Car? magazine has shown that…

    Smoking in cars with children present could soon become illegal in a bid to save lives. Peers will soon be voting on the issue, with a ban already in place in America, Australia, Canada and some areas of Europe. Shadow health secretary, Andy Burnham, said: "When it comes to improving the health of children, we are duty bound to consider any measure that might make a difference. "Adults are free to make their own choices but that often does not apply to children and that's why society has an obligation to protect them from preventable harm. "Evidence from other countries shows that stopping…

While it’s true that World Series of Poker or World Poker Tour pots can sometimes reach beyond the hundred thousands (or even the millions, though that’s much rarer), winnings are more often than not closer to the $50,000 mark.

    Yamaha is known to update its products quite frequently. Let it be colours, features or mechanically. Mechanical changes are usually caused by public demand and other changes are carried on many areas of the motorcycle. The R15 V2.0 was the perfect example. People wanted a more stunning looking motorcycle and Yamaha went ahead and did it. The case is the same with the FZ too. While everybody was happy with the package and styling, people wanted more power and torque from the same chassis and if possible a bigger engine too.

While the current generation model was launched in 2010, the car’s boring looks never really portrayed the true capabilities of the SUV. The facelift however, promises to change that apart from offering a complete set of updates and changes to the cabin. To begin with, the design changes on the 2015 Touareg is rather evolutionary than revolutionary.

    In the automotive world it’s not uncommon to have a design regarded as a classic. Ferrari’s 248, Holden’s 48-215, Ford’s GT40, Aston Martin’s DB5 and Jaguar’s evergreen E-Type. Enzo Ferrari called the E-Type “the most beautiful car ever made.” Controversial due to its phallic styling, especially when painted red, its immensely long bonnet in comparison to its compact cabin gives it proportions at odds to its handling. A svelte, curvaceous car, it’s still regarded as outstandingly beautiful over fifty years later. Spread over three distinct…

    Megan

    There’s no doubt about it: there is only a limited amount of fossil fuel in the world. Even running around in hybrid or purely electric vehicles may only go part of the way towards solving the problem, depending on how the electricity used to power the cars in question is generated. If the electricity is generated by an oil-fuelled generator, electric cars merely move the issue of burning fossil fuels further along the production line.  If the electricity is generated using something sustainable, then that’s less of a problem. Enter biodiesel and other biofuels.  Biodiesel is almost…

An interesting side note, did you know that if you start typing his name into Google, the suggested searches include ‘Hermann Tilke boring’ and ‘Hermann Tilke ruining F1′. What does that tell you?

Well, the guys at autoweb.co.uk did and they’ve produced the fascinating infographic below to celebrate the centenary of this classic British marque. Of course, Aston Martin will forever be associated with another British icon – superspy James Bond. In fact, 007 can be seen behind the wheel of an Aston in ten different films.

See, in the 1980s, kids had these things called “part time jobs” in order “pay for their own stuff.” For a couple of grand, you could drive something interesting. And nowhere did more of those cars come out than Daytona Beach, Florida during Spring Break. Both the Sun-Sentinel and a photographer named…

    Some cars deserve to be put on a pedestal and admired for the rest of time. Others warrant a quiet life of weekend visits to a concours d’elegance. But some beckon to be driven and thrashed to within an inch of their life. This particular car is from the latter group – the Renault Clio Williams. Built in 1993 to homologate entry into the French Rally Championship, the Clio Williams was a blue-bodied, gold-wheeled superhatch that wasn’t actually designed by Williams at all. Renault Sport, the automaker’s racing cousin, developed the car and slapped a Williams’ name on it for…

    This year’s 2014 New York Auto Show has quickly become land of the high-powered convertibles. The Corvette Z06 is obviously the big kahuna, and the Porsche Boxster GTS is packing some handsome power — but the bavarians brought along something sexy of their own. The BMW M4 Convertible is the handsome, foldable hardtop opposite the M4 coupe. With its two-door layout and aggressive M persona, the M4 convertible gives you all the performance of the coupe, with the added enjoyment of wind in your hair and bugs in your teeth.

    Toyota has taken the wraps off the facelifted 2015MY Camry this week at the New York Auto Show in United States. It looks considerably more upscale than its predecessor as it has taken several styling cues from the Avalon. We notice the implementation of a larger front grille as well as a beefy lower air intake while the headlights and taillights have also been tweaked. Opt for the SE variant and you get a sportier front appearance with mesh grille inserts and black accents. The new XSE derivative brings a sport-tuned suspension, bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels and an updated power steering…

  • Citroën unveils the DS 6WR

    16 Apr 2014 | 7:41 am
    Citroën’s strategy to make DS a separate sub-brand is set to continue with the 6WR. An SUV inspired by the Wild Rubis concept, it’ll be launched first in China. At 4.55 metres (14’ 11”) long and 1.86 metres (6’ 1”) wide, the DS 6WR is roughly the same size as a Citroën Grand C4 Picasso. A long wheelbase, 19” wheels and a bold front grille design all contribute to a very different look, though. Power comes from either the e-THP 160 or THP 200 direct injection engines, both of which feature a twin-scroll turbocharger and come connected to a six-speed automatic transmission.

With its massive wheels and tyres, elevated ride height, short overhangs and two-door body, the 2008 DKR looks nothing like a production 2008. The design is a case of form following function, so there’s plenty of suspension travel and the aerodynamics have received a lot of attention too. Significantly, Peugeot has decided to make its Dakar contender two-wheel drive, primarily because such a configuration is…

    Nissan has unveiled its all-new third-generation Murano mid-size crossover. A ‘floating’ roof, boomerang-shaped lights, a bold grille and dramatic surfacing all contribute to a striking design. Indeed, it bears a very strong resemblance to the Resonance Concept that first appeared at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. 2015 Nissan Murano. Scroll down for more images. Nissan describes the five-person interior as a ‘social lounge’ that focuses on comfort. The seats use a three-cushion structure and they can be climate-controlled in the front and heated in the rear.

  • Friday FAIL: The Three-Wheeled Ford Mustang

    Ryan Konko
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZUDzNrvarc You only need three wheels to go for a drive. Driving on three wheels is only cool when you’re driving a car equipped with a hydraulic suspension around a corner. Just ask Ice Cube. But when you’re just missing a wheel and driving down the road like it’s no big deal, you’re a complete idiot. We have absolutely no idea what the background story is or why someone would even consider doing driving without a wheel. It’s incredibly dangerous and stupid, and easily a candidate for this week’s Friday FAIL. As pointed out by some of the…

    This GT3 is ready for the track. The days of repainting a car are over. The costly and almost-permanent method of customizing your vehicle has since been replaced by less-expensive wrapping. Fostla is one of the companies in Germany that specializes in covering vehicles with specially-designed foilings and has demonstrated their latest work on a 991 Porsche 911 GT3. The Porsche 911 GT3 doesn’t need help when it comes to getting noticed, but a new wrap can never hurt. Fostla installed their new, entirely reversible wrap starting with a glossy white base layer.

  • Audi Exclusive Offers Up a $146K Audi RS 7 Dynamic Edition

    That’s more expensive than an R8, folks. The R8 is Audi’s flagship supercar. It has all the performance, technology, and prestige packed into one athletic supercar. But, there’s model car that’s arguably a bit more exclusive than the average R8, has two more doors, and is also more expensive – it’s the Audi Exclusive RS 7 Dynamic Edition. The Audi RS 7 may put up some supercar numbers and have an engine capable of shutting the door on a few exotics, but it’s not an R8. It is however $146,045, which is about $30K more than the base V-8 Audi R8 and just $5K under the V-10…

Hennessey Performance strapped on a pair of turbochargers to the 427 cu. in. V-8 engine. The motor was outfitted with all sorts of new forged internals from the camshaft to the…

    This is crazy when we saw this footage, all of our editors were shocked. Is Russia making Ghost Cars? Or a video editing software is used? Imagine you get your hands on a “ghost car” and you drive according to your own rules on the road? It is fascinating, but it would be pointless to have all those shiny metals on the road because no one can see your ghost car. Maybe a possibility in near future to have a paint or design that makes the car stealth and invisible to other people on the road. Surely, more accidents! Well, it is interesting because you can see there is no car and it appears…

In the wake of a world that is increasingly digital, there has been an unspoken cloud of dissatisfaction when it comes to bringing new exciting technologies to our cars. Driverless cars are ambitious, but they are still far off. Apple has however allowed us to dream again. Infotainment systems have so far left something to be desired. Their exaggerated complexity has been their undoing. As far as user friendliness goes, smartphones have got it figured out. This perhaps explains why Apple sought a simple…
  • 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

    Ahmad Wali
    7 Apr 2014 | 12:52 pm
    As far as luxury SUVs go, The Range Rover Sport has a solid place. It is a brand that represents opulence; one that is regarded as an emblem of sophistication by those who demand for the finer things. The outgoing model had its story of success in both the British and American markets, with most buyers adoring its luxury and performance. Rewriting the Script For all its reverence, Land Rover found the formula that had since worked since 2006 to be insufficient for a 2014 model. The script was rewritten, the design rethought, and the 2014 version modelled using an entirely new mound of clay.

  • Customer Expectation, Amateur Photographer and The VAT Man

    6 Apr 2014 | 2:45 am
    How do you manage customer expectation? I think the answer is you have to do the best “You” can, sometimes it’s not enough. Usually you never know what you did to push the customer over the edge and make them buy from you. Occasionally they tell you when you’ve agreed a deal, almost as if they need to get it of their chest, some are too embarrassed, Sometimes it’s the price, sometimes you have the right thing at the right time in the right colour, but sometimes it’s just the little things you do.When I was working at weekends and during the school holidays washing cars at a…

  • Passion & Practicality – High miler Laverda 3C

    blueline02
    14 Apr 2014 | 3:30 pm
    In Australia Laverda motorcycles are rare, customised Laverdas are even rarer, and customised Laverdas that are ridden on a regular basis are almost unheard of. Today’s bike falls into the last of these categories, an Italian beauty that’s not afraid to put miles under it’s tyres, and it comes in the form of Marty’s 1974 Laverda 3C. After twenty years ownership (including three as an everyday rider), and showing no fear in riding it on a regular basis, this bike shows that you can have something special as your daily transport. It helps to have bitchin’ mechanical skills as well.

    Some things in life don’t stand up to being described in words. A tropical sunset, a new born baby, you will find the sum of the words do not give a fitting description to the experience being felt by whoever is doing the describing. In the motorcycle world, the equivalent of this is attempting to put the Brough Superior SS100 on paper. The sleek lines and beautiful chromework do not lend themselves easily to descriptions of a literary nature, always equaling something less than the whole. I’m willing to give it a try though.

It was called ‘Questions & Answers for automobile students and mechanics’. Here are 10 questions: 1) in relation to the engine, what is the ‘two to one’ shaft? 2) what practical use is a ‘hydrometer’ to a touring driver when it comes to the issue of fuel quality? 3) What are the principles of a…

Then came the following generation Dodge Viper SRT, and that one I didn’t care for because I kept reading the C6 Z06 Corvette was faster. The problem was that generation never made any advances from the GTS model except for exterior styling. It still didn’t have any type of traction control, there was no comfort driving it, and the interior didn’t have any…

  • Toyota FJ Cruiser Has Seat Belt Defect, Toyota still working on Remedy

    Toyota announced that there is a Seat belt recall of FJ Cruiser models from 2007 to 2013. Unfortunately for owners of these cars, even with the issue discovered, Toyota is still working on how to actually fix the issue. The problem stems from a design oversight, Toyota mounted the seat belts for the driver on the rear door of the vehicle. The reason they did this was because the FJ Cruiser doesn’t have a B-Pillar, and there was virtually no other place to put the seat belt. It’s an open design and because of this when the rear door is slammed closed it is slowly cracking the anchor of the…

    Whatever happened to Flight 370 was the question of the week, but I had other fish to fry. I was on a quest to discover if it was Elvis Presley’s personal over the top sense of style that influenced Las Vegas’ tastes, or was it the other way around? Welcome to the 40th edition of West Coast Eastwood’s West Coast Report, and in particular our giant Hullabaloo 40th birthday special filmed entirely in Las Vegas on genuine Kodachrome film.

    What was once described to me as the “Best Little Show in Texas” has grown into one of the largest traditional hot rod and kustom car shows in the country. 2014 makes the 13th Annual Lonestar Roundup in Austin, TX. For the 4th time I made the 1300 mile round trip from my home in central Kansas straight down I-35 to the Roundup, for the 2nd time I took my own ride. The show has grown considerably since my first trip, it’s quickly finding the limits of the Travis County Expo Grounds.

    Only a few guy from the golden age of kustomizing and hot rodding are still with us, and even less are still working on cars. One of the best is Gene Winfield and even today, well into his 80's he's still traveling the world kustomizing old cars and teaching classes about metal shaping, leading, and anything you want to know about custom cars. I was lucky enough to catch up with him at one of his recent metal working seminars to get the process he uses to apply lead to a panel.

    It's not new, it's long been an idea that has been considered by many vehicle manufacturers, to use a camera rather than a mirror.  But unlike other proposals to eliminate the physical rear view mirror, Nissan is merely proposing an added rear view camera.Nissan is at the top of the game when it comes to cameras.  They've pioneered the Birds-Eye view around the vehicle for full perimeter awareness.  So when it comes to proposing the idea for a simple rear view, it's definitely nothing new.  But who's to say that you can't just toss out the physical mirror for a digital…

    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.

That car looked so incredible, there was nothing like it at the time, it almost took you by surprise it was a Dodge. Then came the following generation Dodge Viper SRT, and that one I didn’t care for because I kept reading the C6 Z06 Corvette was faster. The problem was that generation never made any advances from the GTS model except for exterior styling. It still didn’t have any type of traction control, there was no comfort driving it, and the interior didn’t have any…

  • GM Recalls LaCrosse and SRX For a Transmission Software Issue

    31 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    General Motors recalled about 27,000 vehicles due to a software issue in the transmission of the 2013 Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac SRX. The Buick’s made from April 25, 2012 through March 6, 2013 and Cadillac’s produced May 29, 2012 through Feb. 18, 2013 are effected.The technical issue is that the transmission sometimes involuntarily shifts into sport mode.

Non the less they are being proactive, urging drivers to come in and…
  • Toyota FJ Cruiser Has Seat Belt Defect, Toyota still working on Remedy

    Toyota announced that there is a Seat belt recall of FJ Cruiser models from 2007 to 2013. Unfortunately for owners of these cars, even with the issue discovered, Toyota is still working on how to actually fix the issue. The problem stems from a design oversight, Toyota mounted the seat belts for the driver on the rear door of the vehicle. The reason they did this was because the FJ Cruiser doesn’t have a B-Pillar, and there was virtually no other place to put the seat belt. It’s an open design and because of this when the rear door is slammed closed it is slowly cracking the anchor of the…

The investigation affected an estimated 2.7 million vehicles: 1993-2004 Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Liberty models. Initially, parent company Chrysler refused a voluntary recall of the affected vehicles. They stated that the two models in question met or exceeded all safety standards at the time they were built in their respective classes, and that NHTSA’s findings were “based on an incomplete analysis…

Kinetosis occurs when the balance systems of your inner ear conflict with what you see in the world around you. For example, a bumpy car journey involves seeing the stationary interior of the car at the same time as feeling like you’re moving around. Or, when you can SEE motion but can’t actually feel…

Once you’ve finished spring cleaning (don’t neglect your vehicle, either), it’s time to pack up for the weekend.

    David
    31 Mar 2014 | 2:31 pm
    Following claims that some Jeep models were igniting fires, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched an investigation early this month. This is an exaggeration. The investigation affected an estimated 2.7 million vehicles: 1993-2004 Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Liberty models. Initially, parent company Chrysler refused a voluntary recall of the affected vehicles. They stated that the two models in question met or exceeded all safety standards at the time they were built in their respective classes, and that NHTSA’s findings were “based on an incomplete analysis…

    A 1992 pre-production Viper with the VIN #4 is on the chopping block, among 92 other originals. The electric blue model is currently residing at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington, although not for long. Chrysler recently announced its intentions to have each of the 93 original pre-production Dodge Vipers it had previously donated to schools across the country for educational purposes destroyed. Despite having an estimated $250,000 value, the Viper still appears to be doomed: Jay Leno himself was turned down from purchasing the model in an attempt to save it. Due to…

  • 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…

But regulators cautioned that any new rules would be years away.

That’s right, AAA reported that about 17 percent of fatal accidents are caused by drowsy drivers. While it is more difficult for police to determine sleepiness as a cause for an accident than drunk driving, there are certain road clues that lead to that conclusion. For example, drivers who fall asleep tend to be in the car alone, drive into barriers instead of other cars, and show no attempt to…

  • Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines: Worth the Change?

    Off road vehicles and race cars have been equipping their brake system with braided stainless steel brake hoses for years.  They have been proven to be less prone to damage from puncture, and they don’t stretch or swell the way your typical brake lines will.  There are some disadvantages as well, such as an inability to see if the Teflon inner portion of the brake line has suffered any damage and the outer layer being abrasive to other car parts it may come into contact with. There is no room for leaks inside of your brake system.  The ability to stop your car is dependent on the brake…

If your car is using the R134 refrigerant then you are good to go to recharge the AC system yourself. You’re going to need to…

    Car insurance doesn’t have to break the bank. With so many options for deductibles, add-ons, discounts, and carriers, a little research prior to purchasing goes a long way. Although insurance companies and agencies will vary, these tried-and-true savings methods are the best ways to reduce your premium. Opt for the Higher Deductible Not always the best option, but choosing the higher deductible automatically comes with savings. This is because higher deductibles translate to lower premiums, so you’re paying less per month for the policy. The downside, however, is that you have a…

Used or refurbished fire trucks are a good choice for many of these places because they can save money while still providing the department with a quality truck to assist them in fighting fires.

    This winter was one of the longest, coldest, snowiest winters in recent memory. Spring felt like it would never come.  But this week, with temperatures a balmy 70 degrees, it looks like spring is finally here! Also here, unfortunately, is a very real reminder of the winter of 2014: potholes. Potholes are irregular, bowl-shaped holes in the asphalt layer of roads caused by the freeze, thaw, freeze cycle. (That just about tells the whole story of January and February here in Philadelphia and across the country.) Potholes are more prevalent this year than ever before.  By mid – March,…

    In an effort to save money, especially in difficult financial times, you might consider cutting back by not buying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If everybody has to have insurance, what is the point? It is true that all states (except New Hampshire – not surprising – their state motto is “Live Free or Die”) require drivers to have basic insurance coverage. But the fact is that 1 in 7 drivers are ignoring the law and driving without basic coverage. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist insurance covers two types of losses – bodily injury and property damage. Bodily injury…

Overinflated tyres, on the other hand, can cause steel ring expansions, worn out treads and eventual blowouts. You can take your car to the fuel station or local tyre service outlet every month to check the tyre pressure. But if you want to avoid stepping out on a lazy Saturday morning, simply check the tyre pressure yourself with the tyre pressure gauge. There is a wide variety of pressure gauges available…
