    Filed under: Concept Cars, Hatchback, Misc. Auto Shows, Skoda, Racing A few months ago, Škoda revealed its all-new Fabia, a model that will undoubtedly be a vital product for the Czech automaker, yet it hardly registered on our scale of the most exciting debuts at the Paris Motor Show this year. But this... this is more like it. What you're looking at is the Škoda Fabia R5 Concept, a preview of Škoda's upcoming new rally machine. Looking like a Fabia on 'roids, the R5 concept previews the brand's new contender for the second top rally class. That means a 1.6-liter turbo…

You slathered a Toyota in leather and fake wood, filled every crevice with sound deadening, swapped out a few body panels, and stuck a Lexus badge on the trunk. Or, if you were GM, you might have skipped a few steps and gone right to the upscale-badge part. But today, nobody operates so simply or crudely. Most manufacturers’ portfolios are filled with vehicles that share significant parts of their makeup. In some cases, one basic layout begets multiple body styles and sizes, sold by several brands at vastly…

    Nissan is on the verge of revealing a new Titan full-size pickup just as the American Big Three begin their pickup overhauls. And to remind us, Nissan teased the new Titan in a quick video. From what we know, Nissan is building up some serious hype for the Titan, which in its current form, has been with us since 2003. For instance, Nissan revealed to be serving up a new potent 5.0L diesel V8 from Cummins as an option for power, to cater to the lovers of diesel full-size pickups. Additionally, the Titan is rumored to be offered in a wider array of forms than before along with a standard V6…

After debuting in the Golf, it could find its way into other Volkswagen Group models based on their latest MQB platform, much like the seven-speed unit sees widespread use.

    28 Nov 2014 | 7:04 am
    2015 promises to be a big year for Toyota. The US market is increasingly important for Japan, Inc., and that market is growing. 16.4 million new light-vehicles are expected to be sold in the US in 2014, and 2015 estimates are as high as 17 million. The updated Camry will help capture a large slice of that growth, but you need competent product across the board when every basis point counts. Yaris sales have never led the subcompact segment, but they’ve become particularly soft lately with over 50% going to fleet buyers. The new “European flavor” of the refreshed 2015 Yaris is arriving…

While this is true, there are many tangible benefits to BMW’s advanced carbon fiber manufacturing—such as driving down the material’s cost and getting ahead of competitors—and now it has even drawn the praise of one Elon Musk. Yep, forget the diesel and hybrid Bimmers that sell for normal-ish money—Tesla CEO Musk is turned on by the i lineup’s exotic construction. According to a Der Spiegel…

  • 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.

    It's big and it's comfy, and it drives quite well: if you're looking for a minivan substitute, the Buick Enclave might fit the bill. But there's still too much hard plastic for the price. Find out more in my review over at Metro.

    Sebastian Vettel's press office has denied claims the German driver reached mind-numbing speeds on the public roads of Abu Dhabi last week.

When Mark Webber retired at the end of 2013, 24-year-old Vergne was disappointed to lose out on the seat to his Toro Rosso teammate Daniel Ricciardo. What really didn't help me is that Red Bull had no idea that Vettel ... Keep reading

  • EPA Delays Biofuel Renewable Fuel Standard Decision

    Paul Riegler
    23 Nov 2014 | 5:15 pm
    The Environmental Protection Agency announced on Friday that it was postponing the issuance of final Renewable Fuel Standards, the rule that set the levels of biofuel that would be required to be blended into convention fuels, for 2014. 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…

    Honda is replacing airbags nationwide, not just in humid states, from Autoblog. With a Senate hearing scheduled for November 20, the investigations into the exploding airbag inflators from automotive supplier Takata are just beginning. Honda is among the automakers most affected by the problem with over five million vehicles potentially in need of repair in the US, according to the last estimate from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But the actual number being fixed could be even higher because the company is also working with worried owners nationwide. According to the…

    US closes Ford steering probe without recall, from The Telegraph. U.S. safety regulators have closed an investigation into steering problems in more than 500,000 Ford full-size cars without seeking a recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating problems in the 2004 through 2007 Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis and Marauder cars in July. The agency was looking into complaints that a heat shield could rust, dislodge and cause the steering shaft to jam. Investigators reviewed 18 complaints about the problem and found that it occurred infrequently,…

  • Review: 2014 Scion tC

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

    Chris Haak
    2 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    There are trips that one dreams about, and trips that one never forgets. My trip to Baja to test the new BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires falls into the latter category. I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in. The tires survived what we threw at…
  • Top Muscle: “Light Painting” the Muscle-Car Masterpieces

    Charles Krome
    12 Jun 2014 | 9:38 am
    I made an interesting discovery recently when I got my hands on a tome called “Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America’s Fastest Decade.” The team at Motorbooks had sent it to me for review and—unsurprisingly—I was expecting to learn a thing or two about rare muscle-cars when it arrived. Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…
  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Jeep Renegade

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

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.

    Have you ever dreamed about climbing a ski mountain in a Jeep? I know I have. The thought of scaling peaks in a 4×4 has crossed my mind countlessly over the years while riding on the chairlift. So when BF Goodrich asked if I might be interested in a hands-on demo of their their brand new All-Terrain T/A KO2s at Hunter Mountain on a tricked out Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I jumped on the opportunity. This was not an ordinary media junket. I didn’t need to get on a plane, dress up, or sit through a slide presentation. All I needed to do was gather up my cameras, drive Slambo up to…

    If you’ve never had the need to get rid of a junk car, count yourself lucky. Dumping a clunker can be a real hassle. The trick is to minimize your financial loss without spending a huge amount of time, effort and expense. I’ve had to unload more than a few junkers over the years and it’s never been fun. For most consumers, junking a car is a losing proposition. But for entrepreneurs, there’s plenty of money to be made. Think about all of the print, TV, and radio advertisements you’ve endured for WeBuyAnyCar, for example. Their pervasive jingle is a highly-effective earworm. If they…

Valvoline sent a crew to shoot a day-in-the-life with me a few weeks back. They did an awesome job of capturing what drives me every day. We took a nice long ride in Slambo, heading out from Rancho Indebto all the way down through the Pinelands to Tuckerton, one of the towns on the Jersey Shore that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

    This 2015 Audi Q3 compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV) is a new segment entry for the German luxury automaker. Its coupe-like profile, deep Audi signature grille and distinctive exterior lighting succeed in giving it a fairly sporty look, and given its modest exterior size, its 5-passengers interior is relatively roomy, quiet, comfortable and premium in virtually every detail of craftsmanship, materials and consistently tight panel gaps. Its standard and only engine is a 200-hp 2.0-liter TFSI (turbocharged and direct fuel injected) 4-cylinder driving the front wheels through a…

The RC 350's 306-hp V6 drives through an 8-speed "Sports Program Direct Shift" (SPDS) automatic with rear drive or a 6-speed automatic with available all-wheel drive. An F SPORT version offers Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) and Lexus Dynamic Handling with rear-wheel steering, and a white-hot RC F model antes up 467 V8 horsepower.

    Here comes Ford with all-new aluminum-bodied F-150s, lighter by several hundred pounds than the 2014s they replace, with even better capabilities and substantially more available features. 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. Or it can perform, tow and haul…

    Nissan might have gotten off on the wrong foot earlier this year, when they introduced the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR, a brand new trim level, as the “sporty” model in the lineup. After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…

This wouldn’t be Kia’s first foray into the world of luxury sedans, but it is certainly a bold move.

    I just wanted to toss this out for Car Lust reader contemplation. The past couple of months I've been wrestling with the question of what to do with my Mustang II.

As the link above indicates, it was my only car for nigh onto 25 years so it got its share of dings and such, and I eventually replaced the engine and exhaust because the old one was pretty wheezy, dirty, and expensive…

But you know what? It didn't matter. This velvety-smooth little hybrid, combining everything that's perfect and balanced about Ford's Fusion platform with the ultra-efficiency of a plug-in hybrid, managed to shine through the most dreary miasma that Seattle's late-fall days had to offer.

When I first posited such an idea to the owners of these respective cars via a post on Facebook, I didn't think they'd take me up on the deal, and figured it'd be nothing more than a friendly comment. Shortly after that initial post, however, we'd…

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata

    Kurt Ernst
    28 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Introduced at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, the Mazda MX-5 Miata reminded the car-buying public of the joys of affordable open-air motoring. In the decades since, the Miata has become both the world’s most popular two-seat sports car and the most raced car in the world, both a testament to the Miata’s impressive handling and proletarian price point. To many fans, the first generation cars (NA, in Miata-speak) are the purest, thanks to their light weight, simplicity and utter absence of luxury. Finding a clean, low-mileage NA is becoming more difficult with each passing year, which…
  • Buick Wildcat I to highlight next year’s Buick National Meet

    28 Nov 2014 | 5:59 am
    Photos courtesy Joe Bortz. More radical concept and dream cars would come along with exotic drivetrains, impossible bubbletops, technology out of sci-fi comic books, and outer-space styling, but few showed a more precise vision of the immediate future than the 1953 Buick Wildcat dream car. While that future has long since passed, the Wildcat remains around today and will go on display at next year’s Buick Nationals. Perhaps because it was designed and built under the supervision of Buick chief engineer Ned Nickles and not under the supervision of an advanced styling studio, the…
  • Can you carry on the Jensen Interceptor’s legacy?

    “Jenny,” the 1967 Jensen Mk I Interceptor that changed Doug Meyer’s life. Photos by Myles Kornblatt. Editor’s note: This piece comes to us from Myles Kornblatt, Curator, Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection. Besides curator of the Miami Auto Museum, Myles contributes to multiple publications as well as AutoMinded.com. It’s usually a bit of a cliche to mention how an epic journey begins with one step, except in the case of Doug Meyer, whose first stride involved a Jensen Interceptor crashed through his garage door. He and his wife, Keri, are the owners of…
  • Detailing tips for vintage single-stage paint

    Steve Berry
    28 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    We just sold our 1971 Volvo 142S after nearly 7 years of ownership. The original single-stage Safari Yellow paintwork is 43 years old and has always been, to me, the most interesting thing about this car. Before listing the car for sale I challenged myself to elevate the paint to its fullest potential as a farewell project for the old Volvo. My wife and our very-original Volvo 142 shortly after we purchased it in January, 2008 In the past I’d taken very simple steps to care for the paint. The car is almost always parked in the garage and given an infrequent bucket wash and bi-annual wax…

    Photos by author. The search for further information usually intensifies shortly after we’ve purchased the vintage vehicle we desire. This blog will discuss a few manuals, books, booklets, and fold-outs geared toward the technical aspects of classic cars, which I have found useful for working on my GM models or for just learning more about what was available for them. If the previous owner was really into his ride, there’s a possibility that some of the types of reading material mentioned in this blog have been included in the sale. Regardless, you should still be able to find…

  • 2015 BMW M235i Review

    NMA
    28 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist The best fights are not one-round knockouts. They’re the savage slugfests. Rocky vs. Apollo Creed. The new M2 vs. the new M4. It’s not what BMW intended. But the match-up is inevitable. Both of these super coupes are powered by the same basic superlative straight six (the V-8 is gone in lower-tier M BMWs thanks to Uncle and his fuel-efficiency mandates) and while the M4’s version of the 3.0 six is stronger, the M4 is also heavier — and so it accelerates only a bit more quickly. In fact, it’s close enough that a quicker M2…
  • NMA Reboot: Ethanol Industry Gets Reprieve but Long-Term Outlook not Good

    NMA
    27 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    This weekly post features recent news stories that highlight and update themes previously covered throughout NMA E-Newsletters and Alerts. Editor’s Note: The ethanol industry dodged a bullet recently after the Environmental Protection Agency deferred action on permanently lowering the amount of renewable fuels that must be blended into the U.S. gasoline supply. And while delay gives the industry time to regroup and lobby for higher levels, the final quota will likely be less than the original mandate required. The NMA has argued against the federal ethanol mandate for many years. In this…

  • BMW Diesel Sport Wagon: The Family Bimmer

    NMA
    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. The real story is the BMW diesel engine which has a unique…

Or you might get a call from CEO Mary Barra for feedback on the company. The strategy is part of a new initiative from the automaker to be more proactive about fixing small issues before they grow into a year like 2014, with over 26-million recalled autos from GM in the US. The company is trying to reverse a culture without a priority on reporting flaws with vehicles. "We have to identify issues before they become a problem. We…

But this... this is more like it. What you're looking at is the Škoda Fabia R5 Concept, a preview of Škoda's upcoming new rally machine. Looking like a Fabia on 'roids, the R5 concept previews the brand's new contender for the second top rally class. That means a 1.6-liter turbo…

Artist Ryan Humphrey was looking for a design to repaint his ratty Toyota pickup, and as a Van Halen super fan, he set on the classic scheme of Eddie's guitar for the look. The paint job is made up of a crisscrossing geometric pattern of black and white stripes with a red body. The eye-catching, rock-inspired design should give Humphrey no problems finding his pickup in a parking lot. In a video…

    Black Friday deals may be on the minds of many shoppers right now, but it's also a good time to grab a deal on a used car. Since April, when prices were at their peak for the year, late-model used-car prices have fallen every month thereafter and currently average $21,758 — a decrease of $1,660. Prices for used Audi A3 and A6 cars surged last month, but they gave up their gains and then some in November. A3 prices fell 6.6 percent ($1,590) this month to lead all models, and the A6 was second with a 5.6 percent ($2,087) drop. The all-electric Nissan Leaf had the third-largest decrease in…

  • Why a MINI should be your next car

    Andrew Mrozinski
    27 Nov 2014 | 7:39 am
    If you are considering getting a new or used car that can provide you with excellent drivability, economy and style, as well as being an established make in the car markets, then a Mini – or more specifically the more recent generations of Mini Coopers – are just what you need. Mini is a household name in the motoring world, ever since it first made its impression on us when it became incredibly popular in the 1960s with its unique size and design. It also found more international fame from its racing history and appearances in blockbuster films and television. More recently their…

    14 Aug 2014 | 6:53 am
    Nearly a month ago, Dodge announced the 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Today, the Chrysler brand introduces a similarly equipped Charger and lays claim to the fastest four-door ever. It’s called the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat. Surprised? If you’re a Dodge fan, probably not. A sedan packing this much power sounds like a recipe for not only multiple run-ins with the law but wide-eyed children will be screaming, “Stop Daddy, you’re scaring me!” But after good ole Dad lays a few patches, those same kiddies will be reduced to giggling hysteria and squealing, “More,…

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.

Trucks capable of close to 30 miles per gallon on the highway are now here, and we have trucks that can pull 12,000 pounds, but we will never have a truck that pulls 12,000 pounds while getting anything more than about 9 miles per gallon.

    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…

    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.

  • F1: Vettel exit spoiled Jean-Eric Vergne's Red Bull future

    27 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    From GMM Jean-Eric Vergne says he was a contender to replace the Ferrari-bound Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull. But the Frenchman, who has instead been dropped from the energy drink company's F1 roster altogether, explained that circumstances simply conspired against him in 2014. When Mark Webber retired at the end of 2013, 24-year-old Vergne was disappointed to lose out on the seat to his Toro Rosso teammate Daniel Ricciardo. A similar story unfolded this year: when Vettel made his shock decision to go to Ferrari for 2015, Red Bull once again chose Vergne's Toro Rosso teammate - now the Russian…

That is the claim of Andy Green, the technical boss of Force India, who thinks a team with a lower status in pitlane might have been punished very harshly by the governing FIA for a similar infraction. After qualifying for the 2014 finale last Saturday, stewards disqualified both Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo when their wing was found to be overly flexible.

Shares in the electric car manufacturer jumped 7% in after-hours trading last night despite a mixed earnings report that saw revenue miss the market estimate, losses grow and sales forecasts lowered. In an earnings season that has proved punishing for many major ‘growth’ companies, that the markets appear to have let Tesla off so lightly is surprising.

    25 Nov 2014 | 1:06 pm
    As one of the largest industries in the world, automobile manufacturing contributes significantly to the global economy, while also creating a lot of waste in the process. Automobile manufacturers are making great strides in creating cleaner, more environmentally-friendly vehicles, which helps to cut down on the waste generated before, after, and while cars are on the road. For wrecked, older, and end-of-life vehicles, the auto salvage industry plays an important role in keeping unnecessary materials out of landfills by properly disposing of and recycling materials from cars. What exactly is…

    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…

    Big companies often have large-scale programs to reward star-performing employees.

But business expert Kevin Kruse, author of “Employee Engagement for Everyone,” says you can always find ways to let your employees know you appreciate them — without spending a lot of money. “Recognition is one of the top three drivers of employee engagement — growth and trust are the other two,” Kruse says.

    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.

    Last month I spent some time with GMC Marketing Manager, Stu Pierce, talking about the brand’s purposeful upscale approach to building the new Yukon, Yukon Denali and the longer wheelbase XL versions.

Since its conception in 2008 as the RX 400h, the Lexus RX hybrid has been a major staple in a rather miniscule hybrid SUV segment. Taking a quick recap and spin in the 2014 Lexus RX 450h Hybrid reminds me of why the brand has stood out among others to offer such an compelling vehicle, one that appeals to the fuel mileage conscious who want a little extra utility yet…

  • Federal Government moves to harmonise ADRs with international standards

    Tim Beissmann
    26 Nov 2014 | 9:23 pm
    The Federal Government has updated another two Australian Design Rules (ADR) in a move intended to bring our regulations more into line with international vehicle standards. Assistant minister for infrastructure and regional development Jamie Briggs says the latest ADR reforms are a step towards ensuring that every time a UN regulation is updated the relevant ADR can be updated automatically, allowing the latest technology to be made available to Australian consumers as quickly as possible. Briggs says the automatic adoption of UN regulations also removes unnecessary layers of bureaucratic…

    The reborn European-made Suzuki Vitara will arrive in Australia just after the middle of 2015 priced aggressively from as little as $23,000, and will lure younger buyers with its interesting cabin personalisation and brand-leading technologies such as Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.  Down the line, it could also be a candidate for the downsized turbo-petrol engines that Suzuki’s engineering team is currently considering for launch — at the behest of global regions such as Australia — inside 12-18 months. Watch this space.  The Vitara — a name synonymous with the small SUV segment it…

  • Ford Focus, Fiesta, EcoSport warranties extended over dual-clutch transmission shudder

    Ford Australia has extended the warranties of almost 50,000 Fiesta, Focus and EcoSport vehicles equipped with the brand’s six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Dubbed a customer satisfaction program rather than a product recall, the action addresses a defect that may cause the ‘Powershift’ auto gearbox to exhibit “excessive transmission clutch shudder during light acceleration”. Ford says the condition may be caused by a fluid contamination of the clutch due to leaking transmission seals. Ford Australia told CarAdvice approximately 47,000 owners have received notifications…

    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.

  • 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…

    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…

    Besides the 3-Series Plug-In Hybrid Prototype, BMW also showed a new prototype based on the 5-Series GT that features Power eDrive plus TwinPower Turbo technology. According to BMW, this technology aims to increase overall efficiency and the dynamism of upcoming hybrid vehicles.

What’s surprising is that the future hybrid system will deliver combined outputs in excess of 670 hp (500…

    United States District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan has ordered General Motors to furnish customers any portions of 2009 performance evaluation of its former chief executive relating to recalls and ignition-switch issues. GM’s hired investigator, Anton Valukas, has said that former GM CEO Rick Wagoner may have watched a presentation showing stalling by the Chevrolet Cobalt just three weeks before he was axed by the government in March 2009. Valukas’ finding was the first sign that a top honcho at the carmaker was aware of defects in the Cobalt’s ignition switch. GM was…

    Skoda has just brought the Fabia R5 Concept at the 2014 Essen Motor Show, a vehicle that previews the successor of the Fabia Super 2000. As expected, the vehicle is based on the third-generation Fabia and was modified in order to face the competition. As a result, it comes with a wide body kit, a roof scoop, a new rear roof spoiler, racing wheels, high-performance brakes as well as a stiffer suspension. The rear end also shows a new central exhaust tailpipe. Under the hood, we will find a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, bolted to a 5-speed sequential gearbox. According to…
  • Auditor says that Canada green-lighted a $12.1 billion bailout for carmakers with limited data

    andrew@4wheelsnews.com
    28 Nov 2014 | 5:21 am
    The federal government of Canada wasn’t given all the information regarding the final restructuring plans of General Motors and Chrysler Group when it green-lighted a C$13.7-billion ($12.1 billion) bailout for them in 2009, the Auditor General of Canada said in a report. The submission of the final restructuring plans was one of the conditions agreed during negotiations for the loans. Both the United States and Canada bailed out GM and Chrysler from financial collapse as they race to save the North American auto industry. The Canadian and Ontario governments granted C$10.8 billion in…

The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 245 hp and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The big surprise is that fuel consumption of this vehicle is just 2 l/100 km (140 mpg), while CO2 emissions are 50 g/km. Using just the electricity stored in the lithium-ion battery, the 3-Series…

    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 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…

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.

    When it comes to auto recall, there must be a strong reason why such thing happens, and the issue of air bag recall from Takata Corp is increasing as the company initially refused to work together. The recall happens as it is suspected that the defect airbag has inflators that can burst and explore, sending metal fragments flying toward different directions. This is certainly a serious issue as the metal fragment can cause serious injuries, even death. Several complaint reports have been investigated, including an owner of Ford Mustang that suffered from an injury when his air bag deployed.

  • How Long Should Car Tires Last

    sysco32
    26 Nov 2014 | 10:18 am
    How Long Should Car Tires Last There are two main ways in which tires deteriorate: too much use and with age. If you drive anywhere from 12 to 15 000 miles a year, the car tires should last for about three or four years. While driving only 6 000 miles annually won’t wear the tires out, they will get old anyway. That includes the spare car tire even if it has never been used before, it gets old with time. How long should car tires last? Nobody knows for sure, because it depends on many things. Some say you should replace it 6 years after production, some say it should last even 10 years…

Well, because maintaining the correct pressure will ensure your tires last longer and handle better, obviously. But also, you save money on fuel. Most people do not check the car tire pressure until something bad happens. But know this: in cold weather tires lose up to two pounds of air per month, and don’t even get me started about hot weather.

Basically, it is the indication of the tire’s speed capability or in layman’s terms, the maximum speed your tires can handle before they start losing control. Why do you need to know about it? Because, safety first, right? Knowing your car’s tire speed rating means that you know that certain point after which your car may spiral out of control if you are not extra careful. That means in ideal conditions! It does not include rainy weather and bumpy roads. Also, tires with higher tire speed rating are…

    Looks like Cadillac is planning on making a convertible again. You know I have been harping on making the ATS into a convertible. I just love the idea of a roadster type convertible like the XLR. Car and Driver has a great article on this. I hope they make it and make it affordable.  Cadillac’s ATS-Based Convertible Back on the Table – News – Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog Cadillac’s on-again, off-again convertible is reportedly back on again.

    Last night I went ahead and changed the look and feel of the blog here. Although it looks kind of the same there is huge difference behind the scenes. Our website is now able to be read on a tablet or iPad for the first time without having to squint. While the main site is still not 100% where I want it to be the blog here is almost they way I like it. Sure I could have done a total redesign but like most people I hate change and I am sure our members don’t like change much either. One thing the new update lets us do is have larger photos on the site. Let’s face it we are all…

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

  • Diesel or petrol: making the choice

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

You got better miles per gallon. It was cheaper to run. Heck, it was better than sliced bread.

And it’s taken less than 15 years for the U-turn. Let me tell you now. If you own a diesel sell it now before everyone realises what’s about to happen. And…

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…

    With the development of driverless car technology, many influential visionaries predict that in twenty years we will not drive our cars anymore – they will drive us. While the technology already exists, albeit in its initial phase, and the prospect of not having to worry about traffic congestion and accidents anymore certainly seems something to look forward to, the fact is – today’s young generation will almost certainly still be a generation of drivers. This is not to say that these drivers will not be immensely helped by technology. On the flip-side, this also means that they…
  • 10 Coolest Police Cars Around The Globe

    Lily Berns
    15 Aug 2014 | 2:25 pm
    For more than 100 years police have used cars to reach the places where the accident occurred, or to catch the criminals. Probably, many people have been accustomed to the fact that these cars are not much different from ordinary street vehicles (of course, except their coloring). So, partly it’s true. But in some countries policemen use vehicles, most of which we can confidently call “the sport cars” – engines in hundreds of horsepower, acceleration to 100 km/h in a few seconds… Check the list of the coolest police cars used in different countries all over the world…!

  • Exclusion of Drivers from Auto Insurance Policy Coverage

    Joe Moore
    21 Jul 2014 | 4:51 am
    Standard auto insurance policies in the USA assume that every eligible driver in your household will drive the insured vehicle at some stage. So, they would ask their applicants who else in their home can drive and include the details of those people in their premium calculations. Including them would make sure that the company charges the right premium. Also, inclusions would reduce any arguments about who was insured or not. There have been cases in the past where the scope of the policy has been questioned by relatives on policyholders. It still may be possible to exclude a certain driver…

    I look forward to Thanksgiving as both a family-holiday and a time to pause and be thankful for blessings on a personal level – good friends, good fortune and a good people in our office who have my back. We have a dry-erase wall in the office and right now it is covered with “hand” turkeys drawn by the employees. The wall is covered with things they are thankful for in their lives ranging from “wine and chocolate” to “Auburn beating Alabama” to “thankful for grandbaby”, “thankful for my dog, family, friends and wok friends” to “thankful for he troops ooh-rah”.

Millions of people are heading out today (the biggest travel day of the weekend) to be with loved ones and share holiday fare unsurpassed for aromas and palatable pleasure. My holiday wish is for safe travel and enjoying quality family time. Of course it will be interesting to see how many people ask to be excused early from the festivities because at some stores the doors open at 6 p.m. Thursday for early bird black Friday sales – now that’s one marketing move that I hope…

    As I wrote in yesterday’s introduction, my initial curiosity was the size of Direct Mail as a marketing tool but what became more intriguing was the battle of postal mail versus electronic mail. One thing is perfectly clear – big bucks are being thrown at direct contact. Data from the respected Winterberry Group estimated in 2014 that direct and digital spending will surpass $140 billion dollars (compared with $124 billion in measured media).  Direct Mail was projected to increase by 1.1 percent to $44.5 billion while digital advertising was estimated to be $50 billion, up 14 percent…

I found a story from Hubspot.com that reviewed Harvard’s position favorably but judging by the article’s comments it was a good thing they were not in the same…

    23 Nov 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Beneath the bonnet of the new 2015 Shelby GT350 sits Ford’s most powerful normally-aspirated production engine ever. A 5.2 litre V8, it produces more than 500 horsepower (370 kW) with around 540 Nm (400 lb/ft) of peak torque. Helping to achieve that output are numerous modifications such as the reworked cylinder heads and valve gear. Furthermore a motorsport-inspired flat-plane crankshaft is fitted, which allows the firing order to alternate between both cylinder banks. Completing the drivetrain is a six-speed manual transmission and Torsen limited-slip differential. Although performance…

    Ryan Konko
    28 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    We have some leftover rolls from Thanksgiving for you. Jeeps are pretty capable machines and somewhat durable depending on the model, generation, year, etc. They’re not exactly designed to rip through the streets unless there’s a big SRT badge plastered on the fenders and rear tailgate. They’re certainly not designed to drift around either. This Jeep driver thought they’d show off their drifting skills in an empty parking lot and things were actually going quite well considering the four-wheel drive powertrain and off-road chassis. That is, until the SUV rolled over while going…

    For 25 lucky individuals. Twenty-five years ago, Audi ran its 5000 CS Turbo on the Talladega Speedway in Alabama to set a speed record. The 2.2-liter, five-valve, turbocharged five-cylinder engine spit out a whopping 650 horsepower and was able to log an average speed of 206.3 mph (332 km/h) around the track with a top speed of 217.48 mph (350 km/h). Fast forward a quarter-of-a-century and Roland Mayer, the former Audi engineer during that time is now paying homage to the incredible feat with a limited run of just 25 MTM S8 Talladega models. “Typically only those with a past have a…

    I have to admit; vans are not the obvious choice of vehicle to buy when you want something to “pimp up”! Most petrolheads will customise cars, especially high-performance ones. But vans have a long and rich cult following, dating back to the days when VW Transporter 2 vans were brand new. You won’t see many modded vans on the roads of Britain.

  • The History of Computer Viruses

    James Simpson
    24 Nov 2014 | 11:39 am
    Viruses have plagued the computing industry for decades. No matter how advanced antivirus software becomes, hackers are always one step ahead. Prior to the 1980s home computers were virtually non-existent; therefore, viruses weren’t a widespread problem. Fast forward a few years to the early 1990s and there were only 1,200 in existence, most of which [&hellip

  • A Scooter but different – Berham Customs ACMA

    blueline02
    25 Nov 2014 | 5:45 am
    It can be hard to customise old school scooters. Their flowing lines don’t lend themselves to modification as they tend look sweet enough in standard trim. Today’s feature bike is a scooter that definitely breaks the rules though. Built by Berlin’s premiere custom workshop, Berham Customs, this 1953 ACMA Vespa was given a new lease on life, showing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. From the start of the build, Martien from Berham Customs knew how the build should look: ‘I just wanted it to look like someone had found a 50 year old custom project and…
  • Project C10 – Inspiration

    blueline02
    12 Nov 2014 | 3:17 am
    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…

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:50 am
    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…

    My name is Ian, and I am a vintage motorcycle fan. It is only recently that I have become involved in the vintage motorcycle world, after admiring the scene from afar for some time now. I use the term ‘involved’ because it is the most apt term to describe the relationship one has while involved in this culture. Whether it be upkeep and maintenance, the club community, or actually riding the machine itself, you definitely feel ‘involved’ whether you plan to or not. Albeit my project thus far is rebuilding a BSA C10 motor, I have learnt more in the last month of ownership than I learnt…

Turbo charging or supercharging an engine is fairly simple and can be done inexpensively, but there's a few places where skimping can cause headaches. Leaking boost flex hoses and clamps are the bane of existence with many DIY turbo setups. A good way to correct this issue is by replacing the silicone or rubber hose connections with V-Band clamps.
  • Beginners Metal Shaping Project- Making a panel blister.

    18 Nov 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Metal shaping is one of those things that seems like black magic to beginners. There really is a science behind the process that takes quite some time to learn and understand. 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".

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.

    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…

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.

    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…

They rely on the reliable and safe operation of their trucks to make a living, and their family and loved ones travel the same roads as everyone else. The frustration all truck drivers and trucking company owners have with the current Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scoring system is not because drivers want to take unsafe shortcuts or cover-up poor practices.

    Many people are now using private number plates to promote their businesses. Charlie Mullins, for example has made his fleet of vans at Pimlico Plumbers stand out with a clever range of reg numbers as you can see above. This brought him a lot of publicity and arguably made Pimlico one of the most well known plumbing companies in the world. Over the 25 years since DVLA Auctions began, many other businesses have seen the benefit of one or more plates that are unique to their own area, such as this example from Chanel.. ..and this one from a Driving Instructor..

    Under new police plans, cyclists could be forced to display some form of ID on their bikes like car number plates, in an attempt to stop rogue riders, it was revealed this week. Katy Bourne, Sussex’s police and crime commissioner, thinks the move is necessary so that bikers can be caught and prosecuted if they break the law. The plan comes after complaints from both pedestrians and motorists about the behaviour of some of the UK’s ever growing number of cyclists. They regularly mount pavements, go through red lights, kick out at cars that get in their way and even perform…

    A brand new McLaren P1 has been totalled less than 24 hours after it was delivered to its 27-year-old driver in Dallas, Texas. The million-dollar hypercar met its early demise just before 8:00am in a single vehicle accident, with the driver explaining that he had hit a wet spot on the road which sent him smashing into the guard rails. With the McLaren P1 among the fastest accelerating and best handling cars on the planet, we aren’t buying that story – but isn’t writing-off your million dollar supercar on day one punishment enough?

  • Volkswagen Golf R32 with a twin-turbo Gallardo engine swap

    George Skentzos
    25 Nov 2014 | 1:03 am
    Tuning firm Asgard Performance has done the unthinkable and dumped a twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V10 engine from the Lamborghini Gallardo into the body of a Volkswagen Golf R32 – and then added twin-turbochargers. The result is a positively outrageous 1,100kW monstrosity which weighs in at just 900kg, making this one very fast tuner car. Clearly shoehorning a Lamborghini engine under the bonnet of a Golf was never going to happen, so the engine resides instead at the back of the car, separated from the driver by a sheet of plexiglass. Asgard Performance have only released a few warm-up…

    We’ve seen people do some pretty crazy things on YouTube involving very expensive cars, but wakeboarding behind a Ferrari F50 is definitely a first. Professional wakeboarder Jorge Gill does just that, connecting his tether to the rear spoiler of the Ferrari F50 before it lets lose on a road running parallel to a canal. As if that isn’t enough, after a presumably wet Gill hops back into the F50 the driver tears off in a plume of tire smoke.

    You must have seen so many drag races, where results turned out to be unexpected (a more powerful car losing to a lesser one), but none of those would have been half as exciting as this one. That is because of the fact that this race was not between two sports cars or supercars, but it was a cycle that took on a Ferrari. There is no doubt that what is achieved by Switzerland’s Francois Gissy is impressive, but what is more impressive is the fact that he established a new world record of speed and that too on a cycle. On 7 November 2014, Gissy achieved a top-speed of 331km/hr in just 4.8…
