    The long-rumored Mazda2-based Scion is a step closer to reality, with Mazda unveiling the sedan version of the Mazda2. With the Scion iM serving as the hatchback in Scion’s new lineup, the next Scion will be a traditional sedan. The unnamed Scion will be built at Mazda’s Mexican factory, and is likely to retain the 1.5L Skyactiv engine for superior fuel economy.   The post Mazda2 Sedan Gives Hints To Next Scion appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

    Next to the revealing of the Cadillac ATS-V was the unveiling of the all-new Cadillac ATS-V.R Race Car, which puts Cadillac back on the map for some serious touring car racing. That said, you can almost look at the ATS-V as a sort of homologation car (though not really). The plans is to have the new Cadillac ATS-V.R Race Car compete in some serious FIA leagues which also feature cars from Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and Porsche. ”The V-Series is the highest expression of Cadillac’s rising product substance,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac…

  • Report: The BMW 2-Series could gain 230i and M240i nameplates

    admin
    21 Nov 2014 | 4:47 pm
    Some BMW enthusiasts websites heard through the grapevine that the 2-Series lineup could consist of the 230i and the M240i, then the M2. According to 2 Addicts and F30 Post, the new 228i and the M235i would get renamed as such to follow BMW’s current nomenclature shift, that also has the BMW 328i and the 428i becoming the 330i and the 430i while the 335i and 435i turn into the 340i and the 440i. If this were 1999, that would mean the 330i and 440i get power from a 4.0L engine or while the 330i and the 430i get a 3.0L unit. Well, this isn’t 1999 and that isn’t the case.
  • 2014 LA Auto Show: Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker create the Rocket for LA

    admin

    There were some hints and previous reports about a new car from Henrik Fisker, though it wasn’t exactly one from his failed EV brand. It was in partnership with Galpin Auto Sports and Ford to create the Rocket, a 2015 Mustang-based car that’s supposed to epitomize the idea of the “ultimate muscle car.” For starters, it definitely looks like the ultimate muscle car. But the Galpin-Fisker Rocket Ford Mustang is more than just show as there’s lots of go too. For instance, under the hood sits a heavily modified 5.0L V8 with a Whippler supercharger to produce around…
  • 2014 LA Auto Show: Jaguar does the unthinkable, gives the F-Type a manual transmission

    admin

    The Jaguar F-Type is hardly news and already loved by many. But it seems Jaguar just did the complete unthinkable because they introduced a rather special type of F-Type–one that comes with a manual transmission. Yup, you read correctly. The Jaguar F-Type can now be had with a third pedal. Yes, there are a few catches. For one, the manual can only be had with V6-equipped models and comes from the same company that makes the F-Type’s eight-speed automatic, ZF. But that’s not all as the F-Type can now also be optioned with all-wheel drive for the 2016 model year. But that gets…

    The Truth About Cars

  • Audi USA Sold More A3s Than A4s In October 2014

    Timothy Cain
    23 Nov 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are times changing, or was October nothing more than an optimal arranging of circumstances in favour of Audi’s smallest sedan? Audi USA sold more A3s than A4 sedans in October 2014, a serious shift from a year ago when the old A3 hatchback was dead and Audi sold 3040 A4s. Before we assume this will be the new way forward for Audi in America, remember that the A4 is at the end of its rope. The next generation A4 has already been spotted in camo form, and while the current car clearly remains competitive in the marketplace, it is an older design. The A3, on the other hand, was released in the…
  • Junkyard Find: 1975 Dodge D100 Pickup

    Since many Dodge D-series pickup parts fit my ’66 A100 van I’m always on the lookout for members of the species while visiting the junkyard. Today’s D100, which I found in a Denver self-service wrecking yard a couple of weeks back, is a little too new to offer many bits for my Dodge, but it’s still interesting enough for this series. Growing up in a Navy town, ex-Navy D100s of this vintage were common sights on the street. Most of them were still in their government-issue gray paint with the Navy serial numbers still visible, but some got rattle-can paint jobs like…
  • Chart Of The Day: Jaguar vs. Land Rover

    Timothy Cain
    22 Nov 2014 | 5:10 am
    The reasons for the drop of the red line and the steady rise of the grey line on today’s chart are perhaps too numerous to count. Additional product for one brand. Less intervention at another. A move toward high-riding vehicles helped one brand. A move away from traditional cars harmed the other. These two factors are made all the more apparent when one brand employs a full lineup of SUVs/crossovers and the other has yet to bring its first utility vehicle to market. One brand’s message has been artfully constructed over a few decades; the other’s has been muddied for at…

    Back in 2006, when I started autocrossing my Mazda RX-8 on stock shocks and Dunlop all-seasons, I took great pride in telling all of my friends that I was “going racing” each weekend. They would look at me in awe, and say, “You race cars?” “I sure do,” I would reply, and I then I would show them pictures of my car, resplendent with number and class magnets. I usually neglected to mention that I never got out of second gear during these “races,” or that I typically drove faster on the way to the event than I actually did at the event. Nor did I…

    A few years ago, during the darkest hours of the GM bankruptcy, Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter found himself on a conference call with company execs and government overseers. A conversation on the bolts and screws of bailing out GM suddenly halted when one of the federales, a Corvette fan, wanted to know the plan for the C7. “At the time, there was no plan,” recalled Juechter as we stood trackside at Road Atlanta this past October. “We were at full stop.” READ MORE ››

    There’s been no shortage of debate surrounding Ford’s decision to adopt aluminum construction for the new 2015 F-150 pickup, and now we have some key metrics that will feed the fire: EPA fuel-economy ratings. The headline number that Ford is keen to hang its efficiency hat on is for trucks equipped with the 282-hp 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine and two-wheel drive, so we’ll start there. That truck has earned an EPA city rating of 19 mpg and a highway rating of 26 mpg. Combined fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg. Those numbers go head-to-head with the EPA numbers for the mid-size 2016…

    There are two paths to creating a high-performance sedan. First, install a large and powerful engine under the hood. Then, you can either announce its presence to the world by adding spoilers, fender flares, a body kit, stripes, scoops, and assorted whirligigs—or you can avoid all that and keep the power in hiding. The exemplar of the latter approach is the Audi S6—the sleeper from Ingolstadt has always flexed its muscles beneath a tailored suit. READ MORE ››

Ford has an answer for that at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show—it’s the track-ready version of the legendary pony car. This is the outrageous new 2016 Shelby Mustang GT350. MUST SEE: Galpin And...

    I was a judge in the Canadian Truck King Challenge, which this year added a new category of commercial vans. We drove them empty, put heavy loads in them, and finally, spun them around some very tight turns and through narrow alleyways in a downtown-driving sprint. Find out who won in my story over at the Toronto Star.
  • What's the best new pickup truck?

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

In a brief statement on its website, the agency said that the delay stems from what it called “significant comment and controversy” over the biofuel targets since its proposal was released last year.  It questioned if the rules would be able to achieve “the volumes of renewable fuel targeted by the statute.” Instead, the agency will take up the rule…

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

    Paula Tompkins

    The majority of customers want to test drive before they purchase. This means the test drive is a pivotal visit, especially as the average number of customer visits to dealers prior to purchasing a vehicle has dropped from five to only one in some areas. (http://www.mckinsey.com/client_service/automotive_and_assembly/latest_thinking ). McKinsey & Company’s Innovating Automotive Retail report reveals a silver lining: when consumers are buying a vehicle, they still rely on dealers even though the interaction is shrinking.

Claims for breach of contract, for example, typically permit a plaintiff to recover only actual damages. Other claims, however, carry the possibility of so-called “punitive damages,” or damages that are awarded to deter the defendant and others from engaging in bad behavior. Tort…

    1 Nov 2014 | 10:55 am
    Toyota’s Scion sub-brand has been struggling since the auto market crashed during the Great Recession.  Sales are about a quarter of their pre-recession peak, and the best-selling Scion model, the tC, had fewer sales (19,094) during 2013 than did the slowest-selling Toyota car model (Yaris, 21,342).  Members of the inaugural Scion buyer demographic class (those who were 22 years old in 2002) are now in their thirties with children, families, and better jobs, and don’t want a brash, quirky car.  Scion’s buyers have grown up, and the brand must grow up with them.  We spent…

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

Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…

    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…

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

Famed Lotus race-car designer/builder Colin Chapman touted "adding lightness" (instead of more power) to make his cars lap faster, and that "enlightened" approach works equally well for pickup trucks. A lighter truck body enables a lighter frame, lighter suspension, lighter brakes, lighter powertrain, etc. A lighter truck handles better, stops shorter and performs better.

After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…

    Porsche is planning a work of art as a new landmark for visitors, employees and fellow citizens at its headquarters in Stuttgart. Their intent is to erect he sculpture on the rotary/roundabout in the center of the intersection on Porscheplatz. Porsche says, that ultimately, their aim is "to achieve a visual link with the Porsche Museum by creating an interesting and living scenic impression". If the 24 meter (78 feet) high sculpture looks familiar, that's because we saw something very similar in 2013 at The Goodwood Festival of Speed. While Porsche didn't mention it in their press release, we…
  • 10 Things We Learned Driving Porsche’s New 991 GTS

    Over the weekend, we experienced Porsche's fantastic new 911 GTS ahead of its world debut this week in LA. Over the course of the three day affair, we learned quite a lot about Porsche's newest 911. For starters, we learned reasons the GTS is one of the best deals in Porsche's current lineup, we learned why you should consider one, and we learned about what makes the GTS different from a Carrera S. Here's more of what we learned in no particular order. 1. Why the 991 GTS is better than a highly optioned Carrera S: If you take a look at the specification sheet, the GTS models, on paper, are…

    This group of brand-new 993s was sitting on some really expensive turf. Cap Ferrat, between Nice and Monaco, was the French site selected for the press introduction of the last air-cooled Porsche in 1993. Car manufacturers in general like for those doing the story on their latest models to be located in nice digs, well fed and happy. The thought apparently being that happy journalists make for sale-producing, complimentary new car intro stories. Or, maybe the PR people just like being there themselves; probably some of both. I shot the color opener for our story — of a blue car at dusk -…

    The McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder are two of the quickest supercars on the planet. But which is the fastest? Our friends at EVO put together this epic track battle and the results are incredibly close. What did you think? Was it a fair comparison? Notice anything about the configuration of the 918 during its timed lap? What about the smile on Jethro's face? To me the winner was obvious, obviously different.

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1960 MGA 1600

    Dave LaChance
    23 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    There’s nothing pretentious about an MGA, your basic, classic  British roadster, and this pleasantly scruffy 1960 MGA 1600 has earned Driveable Dream status in the hands of its long-term owners. The 1600, launched in 1959, has a 1,588cc pushrod B-series four for better performance over its 1500 predecessor, as well as front disc brakes. More than 100,000 examples of the MGA were built before the MGB, with its fancy roll-up windows and its 1,798cc engine, nudged it out of production. The seller makes no claims of originality for the paint or the leather upholstery, and doesn’t…
  • SIA Flashback – Driveable Dream: 1928 Model A Business Coupe

    Daniel Strohl
    23 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    At first sight, the 1928 Ford Model A Business Coupe that Jeff Koch photographed and wrote up for SIA #199, February 2004, looks like a good candidate for restoration – it’s still all there and not totally chewed through by rust. And it’s an unusual fixed-cloth-top bodystyle, to boot. But then again, those all make it pretty decent qualities for preservation as well, which is what the owner of the car – who found it in a north-central Michigan barn – had decided to do when Jeff caught up with him.

    Daniel Strohl
    22 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Most of the new gasser builds we see nowadays sacrifice some of the outright straight-line performance aspects of the gassers of old for some measure of streetability. This 1940 Willys gasser for sale on Hemmings.com – which, lacking any provenance in the description, appears to have been a recent build – might be street legal, but looks as though the builder made as few concessions to streetworthiness as possible to maintain the look and feel of an old-school gasser. From the seller’s description: Frame and all body parts original to this car. Rebuilt 1957 392 Hemi Muncie 4…

    The 1967 Le Mans-winning GT 40 Mk IV on display at The Henry Ford in 2011. Photos courtesy Ford Motor Company. Ask most race fans to name the first time an American team won Le Mans with an American car, and most will point to Ford’s 1-2-3 sweep of the podium in 1966. While many identify the 1966 Le Mans-winning GT 40 Mk IIs as American, the fact of the matter is the cars’ chassis were constructed in the U.K., which makes the correct answer “1967.” The 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans was won by an American manufacturer, with an American-built car (the GT 40 Mk IV) driven by…

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:43 am
    By The Car Family There is something for everyone in the BMW 328 all-wheel drive diesel wagon. For the family there is room for five and a dog or two. For the enthusiast there is the typical excellent BMW handling, suspension, and brakes. For the frugal there is the 30 plus mpg highway mileage and the reliability of a diesel engine. And for the adventurous that all-wheel drive makes light off-roading an enjoyable task. Of course, all these ingredients come at a cost and the wagon’s base price is just north of $40,000 BMW.

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

I’m generalising of course, because there are still a handful of manufacturers that strive to create almost bespoke works of art by using […] The post One Hammer Strike At A Time: Meet Ando-san appeared first on Speedhunters.

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

    If cars ran on water, the price of H2O would probably jump to $4 per gallon, and filling our tanks wouldn’t be any less expensive than using gasoline. The good part, though, would be that we’d have an unending supply, and we could drive forever without polluting our environment. Cars powered by water won’t ever happen, but cars powered by hydrogen, which emit only water, are happening already. Much like electric cars, hydrogen-powered cars aren’t very practical, because there is no refueling infrastructure in place. Unlike electric cars, fueling up involves filling a…

  • Banner Booster Year: Better Child Seats

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

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

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

However, they're also the most dangerous method of transportation. Did you know? Driving a car is the riskiest thing most people do in their day-to-day lives. According to a Virginia Tech Transportation Institute study, nearly 80% of all crashes involve driver inattention within three seconds before the event. Such types of inattention that increase crash risk include talking on a cell phone (increases risk by 30%);…

    At this point in the calender cycle, we’re probably all familiar with Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos (if you’re not, don’t feel left out – watch here). Naturally, as acts of controlled hoonage grow in popularity, younger and younger kids are going to become fans. And like monkeys, kids see, kids do. Obviously, without the aid of a thoroughly sorted open class rally car with 6-inch diameter piping creating more torque than a windmill, little kids aren’t going to be able to do smokey 720-degree burnouts. However, the real issue here is car control – you either have it or you don’t.

  • Ford Unveils the Next Snake: the Shelby GT350 Mustang

    Matt Winte
    19 Nov 2014 | 5:28 pm
    It was at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, when Ford pulled the cover off of the Mustang that a legend was born. The problem was it was seen as a secretary’s car and not taken seriously as a performance car. That’s when one of the great partnerships was formed when Carroll Shelby, a chicken farmer from Texas, who happened to know a bit about making a car fast worked his magic on the Mustang. What resulted is the 1965 Shelby GT350. The 1965 and 1966 Shelby GT350s would go down in history as two of the best Mustangs. Now 50 years into the life of the Mustang, Ford is reintroducing the…

    Since the brand’s inception in 2003, Scion’s goal has always been to offer something that stands out in a crowd. So far they’ve been pretty successful, with offerings like the xB, xD, tC, iQ and the FR-S. Appealing to a younger audience and offering them something they can’t find in other brands, Scion has carved quite a niche out in the market. Their newest offering aims to further expand their market reach and enter into a new segment of the market with the iM Concept car revealed Wednesday, ahead of its Nov. 19 debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. A five-door compact…

  • Video: Alpha Omega GT-R Runs the Quarter Mile in 7.7 Seconds

    21 Nov 2014 | 10:00 pm
    It looks like the folks over at AMS Performance have scratched another entry into the history books with the Alpha Omega GT-R, this time via a 7.70-second blast down the 1320 at 186 mph. Throw in the fact that this car sports a full interior and stock body, and that accomplishment becomes even more impressive.The team battled uncooperative weather and malfunctioning timing equipment at Royal Purple Raceway in Bayside, Texas, but managed to lay down the record-setting run once the clocks were fixed, the rain clouds had dispersed, and the track had dried.Watching the video, it appears as though…

    Kia’s surprising absence at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show caught some people by surprise. But as it turns out, those who were looking for Kia went to the wrong auto show. The Korean automaker did attend a show, and it even presented a new concept vehicle. But it wasn’t in LA; it was over 7,000 miles away in Guangzhou, China. Yes, Kia was in attendance at the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show where it presented the KX3 Concept, a preview model for a C-segment SUV that will be exclusively sold in the Chinese market. On a slightly less obvious level, the KX3 Concept could also be a spiritual preview…
  • Mazda6

    21 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    Introduced in early 2002, the Mazda6 traces its roots back to 1987, when the 626 was enlarged from a compact to a midsize sedan. Although sporty and somewhat luxurious, the first-generation Mazda6 wasn’t the gorgeous sedan we’re all familiar with today. It took Mazda about 10 years to refine the sedan, which entered a new era in 2012, when the third-generation model rolled out. Designed around the company’s KODO-Soul of Motion styling language, the Mazda6 arrived on U.S. soil with a 2.5-liter, Skyactiv-G unit under its hood, one of three engines offered with the sedan.

    It wasn’t all that long ago that the idea of a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle seemed like a dead-end endeavor. The prospect of a world full of cars that consume hydrogen and emit only water has always ranked right up there with flying cars on the list of things that have always been right around the corner. The technology remained too expensive for public consumption, and when hybrids and EVs began selling huge numbers, it seemed everyone just sort of forgot about it. Except for Honda.The Japanese company has arguably more experience than any car company in the world when it comes to hydrogen…

    Hey guys, I just finished the JW Speaker Fog light upgrade on my 2011 WK2 and it looks fantastic. Unfortunately, it looks so fantastic that my headlights look dim and yellow in comparison (they are the standard halogens). I've read a lot of different methods to upgrade the headlights, everything from projector retrofits to swapping out the housings (expensive). Has anyone tried replacing the stock low beams with an H11 LED bulb? See: H11 Philips LED bulb | H16 Philips LED bulb | H8 Philips LED Fog bulb. I know using HID bulbs in reflector housings is a no-no, but do the same issues apply to…

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

    There are some radical engine swaps made on VW Golfs, but this is the first time we see on of this on a VW Golf Mk4. Asgard Performance managed to put a 10 cilinder Lamborghini engine on a MK4 R32. The result is on of the most extreme MK4s in existence. The engine power is near 1500ps and the engine produces 1760Nm torque. Weight is just 900kg and that makes a power to weight ratio of 0.75 hp per pound or 1.66ps per kg. The only problem is that there aren’t yet any videos of the car in motion… The post Asgard Performance Bi-Turbo VW Golf appeared first on VW Tuning Mag.

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

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

    22 Nov 2014 | 4:16 pm
    Chevrolet has whipped the covers off the Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo concept car, which emphasises fantasy and thinking outside the box over being production-ready. The Chaparral concept is powered by a laser setup that’s similar to the one that’s been envisioned for various types of spacecraft. A 671kW laser, mounted in the middle of the car, fires beams of light into a shroud that focuses all that energy to create shockwaves, which then thrust the car forward. There’s also an air-powered generator on-board, but Chevrolet has yet to elaborate about how that…
  • BMW M3 Review – featuring E92

    Jez Spinks
    22 Nov 2014 | 1:38 pm
    Before you read any deeper into this BMW M3 review, let me declare some bias. I’m more of an M3 person than an M4 one. It’s not just about the four-door practicality, as most M3 generations sold in Australia have been coupes; or the fact the M3 saves you $10K over the M4; it’s also about that badge. M3 carries a heritage that will turn 30 in 2015, and I’ve had some pretty special experiences in previous generations. I did the majority of my performance driving training in the E46 M3, and a few years ago I made a high-speed, trans-European trip in the E90 – painted in a sinister…
  • Mercedes-AMG confirms ‘green monster’ for production

    Matt Campbell
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:27 pm
    If you remember the manic Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6, you probably thought to yourself: ‘I wonder if they’ll make a more hardcore four-wheel version of the standard G63 AMG G-Wagen?’. According to Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers, who spoke exclusively with CarAdvice at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, there will be a four-wheel-drive version of the Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 in the near future. “Soon,” was all Moers said about the car, but that’s clearly enough to assume the car will enter production in 2015. The G63 6×6 went on sale in select markets in 2013, priced at an…
  • Audi Q8 ‘coupe’ SUV confirmed

    Derek Fung
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Audi’s management team has given the go-ahead for a new “coupe” SUV, which will be known as the Audi Q8. Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi’s technical chief, told Autocar at the Los Angeles auto show: “The Q8 will come. It will be something new, following designs established on the Prologue concept.” Similar to the relationship between the BMW X3 and X4, as well as the X5 and X6, the Q8 will be based on the next Q7, but with a greater emphasis on style and performance. In Hackenberg’s words, the Q8 “will be positioned as something more emotional and more…

  • A wealth of choice: misbehaving in the new generation of Rolls-Royces

    Daniel Bevis
    14 Nov 2014 | 12:51 pm
    James Donnelly is a lovely man. A softly-spoken Scot, ex-Merchant Navy, he knows more about Rolls-Royce than you can shake a polished walnut burr stick at. He’s the kindly face of 21st-century R-R, giving tours around the uber-futuristic Goodwood factory. Word of his wit and warmth spread to PetrolBlog HQ, so we decided to pop across the South Downs to hear what he had to say. We were welcomed into a conference room to first hear from head of marketing Marc Mielau about an exhibition that’s soon to run at the Saatchi Gallery. Did you see that Channel 4 series, Inside Rolls-Royce? Good,…
  • Why sciatica will drive you mad

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    11 Nov 2014 | 7:42 am
    I’ll be honest, I hadn’t even heard of sciatica until a couple of months ago. Essentially, it’s back pain and – I’m ashamed to admit – I never really had much sympathy for people who suffered from it. Back pain was a problem for other people, not for me. But now I have a deep and uncomfortable understanding of sciatica and – perhaps more importantly – the threat it poses to my chosen career. When doctors and physios tell a motoring writer to avoid driving and sitting down, you know there’s trouble ahead. Thankfully – touch wood…
  • The PetrolBlog review: Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC Lineartronic

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC is an impossible car to love. In fact, I don’t even think Subaru UK is too fond of the WRX STI’s frumpy and rather dowdy sibling. Its return to the UK was announced with little fanfare back in March, it went on sale in May and yet very few people know of its existence. It’s understandable really. To Subaru UK, the Impreza WRX STI must be like an excitable puppy – a high profile icon with an ability to sprinkle magic across the entire Subaru range. It would probably lick your face, if you asked it nicely. The Subaru Impreza 1.6i RC, on the…
  • The MINI One 3-door Hatch is the real Special One

    Gavin Braithwaite-Smith
    16 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    You could spend an awful lot of time and money ‘upgrading’ your new MINI 3-door Hatch. I had a play with the online configurator and it wasn’t long before my £16,450 Cooper D was the wrong side of £25,000. Don’t get me wrong, the end result was a seriously well-equipped car, but to spend that amount of cash on a new MINI would be bunkum. The good news is, you don’t need to. On a wet and windy day in the Cotswolds, I had a play in the all-new MINI One with MINI’s new 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol engine and I’m delighted to report it’s nothing short of brilliant. Proper junior…
  • Is this the end for the 3-spoke alloy wheel?

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

    Bentley introduced the all-new Grand Convertible Concept at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show and we expect to see very soon a production version hitting the dealerships. The new vehicle also gave some ideas to TheOphiluschin a.k.a. “The Master of Photoshop”, which created a rendering of what appears to be an impossible dream. TheOphiluschin created a rendering of the Bentley Grand Coupe, two-door version of the Mulsanne, which would be a successor to the Brooklands Coupe. Honestly to tell you, the rendering looks incredible and if built, the Bentley Grand Coupe would be a rival to…
  • Lexus will go for a three-row crossover instead of offering the RC convertible

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:41 am
    The Lexus LF-C2 Concept a.k.a. the convertible version of the RC Coupe made quite a buzz at the 2014 LA Auto Show, but don’t make any plans folks as the Japanese manufacturer will not offer such a vehicle. Apparently, dealers requested for a three-row crossover and that’s why, the company had to put on hold the RC convertible. So, Lexus is working on a three-row crossover, but what’s more interesting is that the upcoming vehicle will not use an extended version of the RX’s wheelbase, but the one used by the upcoming LS flagship sedan. The rear-wheel-drive platform will…

    Honda executive Rick Schostek has told the United States Congress that the carmaker failed to properly inform National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of some crashes in which Takata airbags exploded and to provide customers of the dangers that some models present. Schostek also admitted that Honda still has no knowledge of the extent of the issue, although he said that the carmaker is working to find out and to make repairs as soon as possible. He remarked that he understands the confusion of consumers on whether they have to get their vehicle repaired. Schostek generally took…

    Opel will soon offer a flagship SUV and decided to invest over $300 million (EUR245 million) in its Ruesselsheim site in Germany, which will be in charge of building the vehicle. General Motors chief executive Mary Barra said the SUV will be a second flagship for Opel after the Insignia midsize sedan. Opel said it plans to roll out the SUV by end of the decade.

While the latest model of the Toyota Sienna scored “acceptable,” the Dodge Grand Caravan (MY2008-2015), the Chrysler Town & Country, and the Nissan Quest (MY2011-2015) minivans got a “poor” score. The 2015 Toyota Sienna joins the Honda Odyssey (good) -- which underwent the small overall test earlier -- as the only minivans to gain the IIHS "Top Safety Pick-Plus" rating used…

  • New Mini Cooper Launched In India For Rs 31.85 Lakh

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

    If had thought Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 was all that Glendwagens had to offer, needed to think again. As Germans doesn’t stop at all, and there isn’t a dead-end for any of the G-Class to them, here’s one more example that landed fresh from the scoops of spy-shots. As seen, the three-pointed star logoed automaker is testing a 4×4 version of the G63 AMG 6×6, which for some may sound as an act of insanity and vagueness. To comment it in right detail, there is an advantage of the 4×4 over that behemoth to those who use it duel-purposely. The 6×6 couldn’t be made…

    When looking at 2012 luxury SUVs, you will find more variety than ever with the introduction of several new models, especially in the compact luxury class.

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

Tata sold 3300 units of the Zest per month, while Maruti sells 18,000 units of the DZire Without a second doubt, the Zest has certainly been a major step up for Tata Motors after a long spell of disappointing offerings in recent times. The compact sedan managed to impress all with its potent powertrain and a very impressive feature list that has been made available at a highly competitive price.

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

The first Sportage was an average looking, average performing, plasticky mid sizer when released in 1993 and is now a great looking, sensationally performing, non plasticky mid sizer in 2014. It’s been on the shortlist to review the Sportage and was eventually lobbed the keys to the diesel powered SLi, clad in Kia’s “Sand Track” metallic paint. The question was, simply, is the Sportage worth the fuss?

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

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

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

Based on expected gasoline consumption, that’s a savings of $60.9 billion.

    This is how zee Germans do luxury. Back in December of 2012, the final Maybach model rolled off the assembly line and the brand ceased to exist.

Just like the Mercedes-AMG sub-brand, Mercedes-Maybach joins as the epitome of luxury and exclusiveness from the German automaker, the first of which is the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Available in S 600 and S 500 variants, the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has a redesigned exterior, 200 mm larger wheelbase and length, and…

    Grindin’ down the street. We’ve all seen stupid and oblivious drivers that have neglected their cars, have no regard for others on the road, and should not have their license. This driver spotted in Newark, NJ is one example of someone who should not be behind the wheel. Jane, the driver of the car recording the video, had heard the car before her and her passenger actually saw it spitting out sparks from driving on a bare wheel rim. The duo, along with a limousine behind them, followed the three-wheeled car for ten minutes as it drove into downtown Newark. Luckily, somebody had called…

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

    A trip to the Australian Transport Museum at Alice has given me some unexpected inspiration for the little C10 engine I am rebuilding. I think I would like to go for a full vintage look, using these bikes as the starting point for my ride. The New Hudson is the look I want to aim for, with a few mods to make for ride ability. The New Hudson is a stressed engine bike with an under slung tank, and total oil loss system. The biggest problem is the lack of a transmission, meaning that the rider has to push the bike to start it, and the lack of a drive system means the engine is either running or…

    Today, Ducati is one of the first names a person might think of when asked to name a major motorcycle manufacturer. It wasn’t always that way, with Ducati starting out as an electronics and appliance firm. Oh how far they have come. In the mid 1940s, a Turin lawyer and a self taught engineer had an idea to build a clip on engine, that could be fitted to bicycles. By 1946, the prototype had been manufactured, the short muffler giving a yipping sound as it kicked over, the nickname given to the power unit was Cucciolo, Italian for ‘puppy’. The engine was a success, with demand…

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

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

    21 Nov 2014 | 8:49 am
    According to AAA, the roads will be packed with Thanksgiving travelers next week. They’re estimating that roughly half million Philadelphia-area residents will travel 50 miles or more over the holiday weekend — that’s the highest number since 2007. AAA is also estimating that 88% of those Philadelphians will travel by car. Many of these travelers are motivated by the recent drop in gas prices, allowing a larger budget for holiday travels. In fact, drivers will probably pay the lowest prices for gas over Thanksgiving in the past five years. The national average will be just…

  • Five Tips to Avoid Expensive Auto Repair

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

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

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

  • Calculating Effective Labor Rate

    Michael Larkum
    11 Nov 2014 | 1:49 pm
    Calculating Effective Labor Rate is a simple exercise that every Service Manager, Dealer, and GM should be able to do. The stronger Service departments in North America make sure advisors, technicians and any other productive personnel understand this key metric since it drives a significant portion of the Service Department’s profitability. Unfortunately, too often the numbers are just pulled from the DMS without any real analysis on how the metric is calculated and what it means. Let’s explore the basics: The first step to make sure everyone is clear on what Effective Labor Rate is. Ask…

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

Before you bother tracking your Bounce Rate, Pages per Visit, or Impression Share, make sure you are tracking the operational steps that sell cars. After all, you can drive all the web traffic you want but it’s not going to lead to any more volume if you are…
  • Shop Supplies – The Little Things Add Up

    Michael Larkum

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

But it is silly to think that growth in this area will continue unbridled, and we tend to think that the opportunity will not be as robust 10 years down the road as it is now. Car dealers have always been good at finding money, so once F&I profits level off what will be the next frontier for your profitability?

You might be wondering why GM needs to entice people to bring in their cars for repair as without proper repair it won’t function effectively. The reason is the reputation GM has built for recalling cars for virtually any reason, big or small. The latest recall by the company is because of a…

Here is a closer look at the simple spark plug, an important yet undervalued car part: The Importance of the Spark Plug Despite what most car owners may think, engines don’t just burn fuel by themselves.

    Advancement in brake pads is set to keep them working longer and reducing overall wear and tear. Fixing brakes in the European auto parts market can be a rather costly affair.

    Let us be straight forward here. The new 2016 Mazda CX-3 goes to the US dealership early to mid next year and it will not be available as a manual, if anyone is really bothered with that.

It is a revolutionary car bringing the design previously seen on the latest Mazda CX-5 but somehow shrunken to fit the car based on the platform of a new Mazda 2. Yes, that is right, this CUV is closely related with the Mazda 2, which is slightly disturbing to know,…
