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

    Image: Flickr All headlights have the same function, but there are a couple of differences when it comes to the bulbs. There are three main types used in modern headlights, LED, Halogen and Xenon (HID). Which is “best” is subjective and a matter of opinion, there isn’t a one size fits all headlight. Learn the pros and cons of each and find what works best for you. Halogen ACDelco halogen bulb Halogens are the most commonly used due to their simplicity and low cost. Bulbs typically last around 1,000 hours and are relatively cheap to replace. The downside is that out of all the bulbs,…

  • Report: Lexus’ LF-SA Concept gets leaked ahead of Geneva

    28 Feb 2015 | 6:51 pm
    Lexus teased the arrival of a new concept car due at Geneva and now, it appears the whole concept was leaked, thanks to a discovery by CarScoops. Instead of being a possible pitch for a replacement for the CT200h, the LF-SA Concept looks to be more of an idea for a new city car. Not much else is known, but should the LF-SA reach production, it would sit below the CT200h as the new entry-level Lexus. Source: CarScoops

    AutoBlog reports that Rep. Ed Perimutter (D-Colorado) recently introduced a new bill calling for the ban and prohibition of automated traffic camera enforcement all across the United States of America. According to his remarks, Perimutter believes that these automated systems don’t fundamentally protect motorists as described, but rather only provide more revenue for municipalities looking for more cash. Traffic and red-light cameras have been increasingly scrutinized over the past year after technical issues brought attention to the devices. Additionally, motorists expressed their…

    James Glickenhaus has been known to be working on a new successor to his P4/5 project as part of his Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus collaboration, known as the SCG 003. Now, the car has been fully revealed on the web. Meet the road-going SCG 003S and the track-only SCG 003C or Competizione. Both ride on an all-new bespoke carbon fiber chassis, versus the original P4/5’s Enzo roots and the P4/5 Competitizione’s F430 starting point.

  • Report: Toyota Tacoma’s chief engineer downplays diesel version

    admin
    28 Feb 2015 | 5:51 pm
    With General Motors leading the revival of the midsize pickup truck segment, pressure against other competitors of this segment has grown significantly. Perpetuating the pressure against these competitors, such as the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier, is the fact that GM is offering a new 2.8L Duramax turbodiesel four. And a diesel engine is a highly coveted item in the world of the pickup. But if you were hoping for a diesel with the Tacoma to match GM’s move, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen. AutoGuide spoke with the Tacoma’s chief…

According to a new report from Automobile, the next BMW M3 should sport at least 500hp, 69hp more than the current model, thanks to the help of electric turbocharger technology and a new water injection system, like the one found on the 2015 M4 Coupe MotoGP safety car. The next M3 should also ahve a lower center of gravity, a wider track, and a longer wheelbase. Meaning, yup. That indicates the M3 should grow in size. The suspension…

    Last year, our own Murilee Martin found a Euro-market Volkswagen light-duty commercial van during one of his many junkyard adventures. As often happens here at TTAC, we had a brilliant contribution from one of the B&B, fictionalizing the story of the van’s final days. Then, just two days ago, the van’s last owner showed up to tell the true tale. The Crabspirits tale of the VW LT van was depressing, hilarious, earthy, and insightful all at once: Hermann was burning. Hermann scratched at his full, grey beard. Beads of sweat lay within. He could feel it running down his chin,…
  • The Finally Defunct Bugatti Veyron’s U.S. Sales Run: By The Numbers

    Finally. The Veyron is done. Bugatti reportedly sold the last Veyron, a car which will be displayed at the Geneva auto show in March, to a customer in the Middle East. Volkswagen-owned Bugatti’s 450-unit production run comes to a close after nearly a decade of delivering cars to customers. Although the cars routinely sold for more than $2M, Bloomberg referenced Singapore-based analyst Max Warburton who believes VW lost €4.6M per car, more than USD $5M. Unlike the detailed sales reports we see each month from Volkswagen of America’s namesake brand, Veyron-specific numbers were…

    Kansas City’s KCTV reported this week on an attempt to repair a 2012 Missouri state law that has led to a dramatic increase in car thefts. The law, which allows people to sell vehicles 10 years or older without a title, was originally intended to help rural property owners dispose of derelict vehicles and outdated machinery that would otherwise be left to rot. Criminals, however, soon discovered that they could scoop up virtually any vehicle that met the standard and sell it to scrap yards for a tidy profit. The primary culprits, the story asserts, are crooked tow truck drivers. Old cars…

    Wrangler owners all know that they’ll one day wake up with the sudden urge to bolt on a couple thousand dollars’ worth of aftermarket parts. And in those precious disorienting seconds, Chrysler wants to them to default to mouthing the word, “Mopar”—hence the mission of this yellow Jeep landing in Geneva. Beyond its awkward Rocks Star name, this is your basic Wrangler Rubicon softtop with half doors, only with a kickin’ 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder banned from our home turf.

    The last time we reviewed a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, it was 2009, and none other than P.J. O’Rourke wrote an enlightened piece full of magnificently qualified praise for the glittery land yacht, with cheeky nods to the people who buy them. We certainly won’t attempt to match O’Rourke’s sage perspective, social insights, and penchant for literary flourish. But we can tell you about the new Phantom Drophead Coupe “Nighthawk”, one of nine produced exclusively for the U.S. market, and how it feels to drive it in an area of the country where the car is even more in its…

    The 2008 Cobalt is one of the GM vehicles affected by the company’s massive ignition-switch recall.

The Senators posit that employees who speak up about safety defects should receive up to 30 percent of any federal fines eventually imposed.

    1 Mar 2015 | 5:53 pm
    HAMPTON, Ga. – In the early stages of the Folds of Honor 500, it appeared the race would unfold into another battle between Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano. Similar to Saturday’s XFINITY Series romp, Harvick and Logano dominated the first half of the race - leading 162 of the first 176 laps. Logano logged 84 laps at the point, but faded and eventually finished fourth. Harvick finished ... Keep reading

    20 Feb 2015 | 7:10 am
    Apple, notorious for being one of the most secretive tech companies, may be planning to build an electric vehicle that would become available by the year 2020. The veil of secrecy was pierced last week when the Wall Street Journal ran a story about Project Titan, an EV project that hundreds of Apple employees are working on. Since then, news of Apple’s recruitment of automotive industry experts has surfaced and, according to a court filing, electric-car battery maker A123 systems sued the computer company for poaching some of its top engineers with the goal of possibly creating a battery…

    Gasoline prices in New York in January 2015 After months of seeing significant decreases in fuel prices, motorists began to pay more at the pump in the past few weeks, although they remain significantly lower than they were a year ago. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel was $2.865, $1.124 lower than a year ago, but $0.03 higher than the average price last week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Here are five tips that will ensure a safer drive. 1.)       Winter tires Make sure to have winter tires (which were used to be called “snow tires”) fitted to your car. They provide significantly better performance in snowy conditions than all-season tires and are necessary for those cars with summer/performance tires. Be sure to check tire inflation regularly, cold temperatures reduce tire pressure. 2.)       Raise…

    2015 Audi A3 TDI As diesels become more popular in the United States (three carmakers, including Audi, currently offer six models each, while the total number of diesel models on the market five years ago was 12), many rules are being broken. Just a decade ago, the idea of a sporty diesel would have been unthinkable, yet the BMW 335d broke that barrier in 2010. With the redesign of its A3 range, Audi introduced the A3 TDI sedan in the United States. The Audi looks like the other sedans in the current Audi lineup, which is not a bad thing at all. It comes only in sedan form, and Audi has…

  • Valvoline Launches Full Synthetic High Mileage Oil

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

    By all accounts, Tesla is a completely different type of auto manufacturer. It defies convention and throws it all in the face of the traditional automakers. They are, without a doubt, the darling of the tech crowd … and for good reason. The Tesla Model S is a truly spectacular car.

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

While I’ve been to NAIAS a number of times over the years, this was the first time I flew home knowing that I need to start doing things differently, ASAP. Although the price of gasoline may have plummeted, there’s still a mission (make that multiple missions) that must be accomplished. Gas will not stay this cheap forever. Ford kindly flew me in with a crowd of “Digital Influencers” and I lived happily in the big blue snowglobe with my new comrades.

  • The Sneaky Hot 1974-1983 Volkswagen Rabbit (aka VW Golf Mk1)

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

    23 Feb 2015 | 10:00 am
    When was the last time you saw an AMC Gremlin on the road? And when you saw that Gremlin trundling around, what sort of shape was it in? Speaking personally, outside a car show context I haven't seen a Gremlin in at least a decade, and even back then the Gremlins I saw were hopelessly bedraggled--fade paint, missing glass, blowing smoke, and just generally neglected. Unfortunately, owners tend not to care for cars they perceive as cheap and disposable, and so they tend not to survive in good condition. As a result, vintage economy and entry-level cars now seem rarer to me than their…

    Former billionaire Eike Batista was once Brazil's richest man. I say "once" because he is said to have lost nearly everything in 2013 after his EBX conglomerate fell apart and his oil firm OGX filed for Latin America's largest bankruptcy. Adding insult to injury, his Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, just one of a number of luxury vehicles he owned, was confiscated by the police earlier this month under court order. The reports we read say the Porsche (and other cars) were seized under suspicion that Batista was selling assets frozen as part an ongoing insider trading case against him. Eike Batista…

    Kurt Ernst
    1 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Launched in 1978, Porsche’s 924 Turbo was meant to bridge the gap in both price and performance between its entry-level 924 and its range-topping 911. Though early models had reliability issues (compounded by owners unfamiliar with the care and feeding of turbocharged engines), by 1980 Porsche had sorted these out, bumping output to 177 horsepower in the process and making the car nearly as quick as a 911. Even back in the day, the 924 Turbo was a fairly uncommon car, and clean examples are rare indeed today.  Though this 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo, for sale on Hemmings.com, may not be…

    * Once you get past the siren songs and the tautological arguments of the first few minutes of this circa 1953 GM video – not to mention the GM propaganda throughout – you actually get a pretty good look at the process of designing a car in the Fifties, from sketching and rendering through clay and plaster. * How is a Citroen DS21 like the rock band Nirvana? Record exec Jeff Suhy, for one, appreciates them both, but it goes deeper, he argues in the latest video from Petrolicious: It touches on how a cultural movement can be both immensely popular and iconoclastic at the same time.

    * Was Duncan Hamilton drunk as a skunk during the running of the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans, as the tale goes? While we’d like to believe that racing was indeed a more lassez faire endeavor in the Fifties, Le Mans was just as important a motoring event as ever then, and national and corporate reputations were on the line for that race, so the likelihood of Jaguar staking its success on two blokes who’d been up all night drinking may not be all that plausible. Still, as Venn Motor Sport (and Cafe Roadster and Motorpunk) tells the story, it makes for good entertainment. * Another…

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

    The state government in Victoria is set to halt a program that would have seen many 70km/h and 90km/h speed limits lowered. Under a scheme commenced by the previous state government, each of these speed limits was to be reduced by 10km/h. The policy followed advice from Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission (TAC), which claims the chances of a fatality following a collision doubles with every 5km/h above 60km/h. But a campaign by the RACV and community newspapers to scrap the s... Read more The Motor Report is Australia's fastest growing auto website. Click through to read the full…

  • Rolls-Royce SUV Rendered, Yet One More Guess

    1 Mar 2015 | 3:42 am
    Nothing upsets purists more than when a beloved marque deviates from an established formula and heads into entirely new territory. When Rolls-Royce eventually reveals its first-ever SUV - and it's coming - there's sure to be plenty of dropped monocles. But the reality is that SUVs, particularly high-end ones, are big business. By throwing its hat into the uber-luxury SUV ring, Rolls-Royce can finally take advantage of this demand. It will also compete against ri...

  • Video: Nissan GT-R LM Nismo Testing through the Eyes of GoPro

    Tom Anderson
    27 Feb 2015 | 3:56 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Click here to view the embedded video. The Nissan GT-R LM Nismo is the most outrageous mainstream racing car to come along in decades (other than the Delta Wing, which was, of course, designed by the same guy), but it’s just like any other new racecar in that it needs to undergo thousands of miles of on-track testing before it’s truly ready to take on the competition. Action camera company GoPro paid the Nissan team a visit when the latter rolled into Florida’s Palm Beach International Raceway for testing, recording essentially the same sights and…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 has certainly been one of the more successful GT3 racecars competing globally over the last few years. There’s just one not-so-slight problem: The street version of the SLS is no longer in production. However, it does have a successor of sorts in the form of the Mercedes-AMG GT, so it shouldn’t shock you that Merc’s new GT3 machine – officially debuting at next week’s Geneva Motor Show – is based on the GT. Officially called the Mercedes-AMG GT3, this new racecar follows much the same formula as its predecessor:…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The compact luxury crossover segment is one of the hottest in the automotive industry right now, so Lexus was smart to (finally) jump on board with the aggressively-styled NX. And when we say “aggressively-styled,” we mean it looks like it’s ready to suck your face off through its hourglass-shaped maw and store your remains in its Kardashianly-proportioned rump. However, Wald International decided to make the littlest Lexus crossover even more of an attention magnet. Part of the company’s Black Bison range, Wald’s body kit for the NX features…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Just 10 years ago, the idea of Audi producing a mid-engined supercar bordered on preposterous. After all, Audi parent Volkswagen already had Lamborghini in its stable, and was hard at work on what would become the Bugatti Veyron, so what was the point? Well, point or no point, the Audi R8 has been quite successful for the interlocking rings brand, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the company has cooked up this new second-generation model.

The Fast and Furious movie franchise has spawned its fair share of video games but, as with most video games based on movie and TV properties, none of them were particularly memorable (not for the right reasons, anyway). That might be changing in about a month’s time (March 27th, to be exact), because that’s when Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious drops. But although this game uses the Forza Horizon 2 engine, its Southern Europe map and special variations of some of the car models, it’s actually a…

    Despite its recent rise, a gallon of regular gas is still $1.06 cheaper today than it was a year ago, according to AAA. That's led prices for used electric vehicles to plunge, The Wall Street Journal reports. Related: How Would Chevy's Bolt EV Stack Up Against the Nissan Leaf? How much? Try more than $2,000.

    Gas prices have increased for 31 days in a row, raising the national average for regular unleaded to $2.34 per gallon, as refinery maintenance and an explosion at a Southern California refinery reduced gasoline production in some areas.

    We thought we would follow up our Today’s Most Popular Cars From the 1980s list with its logical sequel: ’90s cars. We looked at our data again and determined which ’90s cars garnered the most interest from CarGurus shoppers. We have to say, this list surprises us a bit less. The ’80s list featured a good number of discontinued cars, but only one car no longer in production made this one. Nineties cars are probably a bit more practical than some of the nearly ancient ’80s models (cars on this list are likely at least 11 years younger), and most of these cars…
  • Will Toyota Finally Build a Diesel Tacoma?

    The 2016 Tacoma: Now in diesel? Trucks and diesels go together like salt and margaritas. The two just belong together, but in the United States there’s been a wedge in the relationship. What’s kept the high-torque long-lasting diesel engine from the majority of the truck market here? Money, of course. All the big bad-boy trucks here have diesel options. Ford, Chevy, and Ram all offer oil-burners made to handle the biggest of the big truck jobs. But what about the casual truck guy who just wants to tow his boat to the lake under diesel power, but doesn’t want to buy a…
  • The $28 Million Barn Find: It Wasn’t Mine

    You’d think everyone who ventures into the countryside finds forgotten but beautiful cars inside rotting old barns. As often as the topic of “barn finds” comes up in the auto world, it appears they are as common as finding a Starbucks on a downtown corner in Seattle. Barn finds are rare, though, at least if we’re talking about finds that could be worth some cash. I was lucky enough to have a barn find of my own once, but it was a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. Granted, it was the Sport edition, but it wasn’t exactly on par with the old Bugattis and Ferraris people…
  • Sell the Honda, Buy a Kia?

    A friend of mine had a beautiful, low-mileage Honda Pilot for sale. This is the kind of guy who keeps the paperwork on everything he buys and has required service performed at the recommended intervals and only at authorized locations. He buys reasonable, practical items, but only gets the top-of-the-line versions of them. Let me give you an idea of what kind of guy this is. When I purchased a used hot tub from him, he handed me a manila folder with every piece of paper it came with and receipts for every service and part, sorted by date. And laminated. So when this guy sells a car, the…

  • How Healthy Truckers Create Safe Roads

    Manny
    9 Feb 2015 | 3:38 pm
    Statistics show auto accidents cause a staggering 12 percent of work-related deaths. This puts truckers in direct danger, making the need to stay safe a top priority to stay sustainable, and in some cases, alive. Driving long distances can get the best out of all truckers, including professionals with decades of experience. The truth is, accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. A branch on the ground, or a child carelessly crossing the street, can easily set off a pileup, endangering the lives of everyone on the road. Staying sharp, fit, and alert is the key to minimizing accidents and…

If you were a child in the last several decades, you probably remember playing with Legos. Most boys I knew had buckets full of Legos. Kids used to build forts, houses, towers, and many other buildings that they could play in back then. Eventually, though, we grew up, and those colorful little blocks of happiness found their way to the back of the closet. Well, for some folks, these blocks were pulled out of the closet and used to create some of the…

    Standard Motor Parts (SMP) has just launched a new app and they’re giving away a crapload of free stuff for checking it out. I’ll explain what the app is and what I think of it, then keep reading for info on the contest. What’s this app all about? The idea here is to streamline parts buying from multiple manufacturers, and not only aims to make finding the right parts for your ride easier, but also make the installation and identification a smoother process. You can search by car make and model as any site or app will let you, but you can also search by engine (super useful…

  • Kia Steps up Its Sex Appeal with the Sportspace Concept

    Jordan Wheeler
    25 Feb 2015 | 10:38 am
    I never thought I would call a Kia sexy, but here it is. The Kia Sportspace concept will make its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March but Kia sent out a few pre-show photos. All I have to say is wow! The Sportspace takes Kia’s design language a little further but still manages to look reasonably production ready. There are a few concept items like the HUGE wheels and no door handles. However, it really looks like it could be a close shape for the next Optima. More than likely, we poor Americans will never see this sweet wagon on our shores though. I understand that the…
  • Ram Trucks: Houghton’s Heros

    21 Feb 2015 | 1:01 pm
    Reading by the warmth of the fire, with a cup of tea denotes a classic winter picture.  Yet, for the Ram Heavy Duty that writes its own books and prefers octane over Earl Grey, the perfect snow day is quite different.  The cold is something to be embraced, not tucked away from.  It’s an opportunity to refine a sense of purpose for Ram, now championing best-in-class ratings for both fuel economy and towing. We are going well north to Houghton, Michigan, where Ram takes merciless winter weather and literally “plows” through it.  A series of intense vehicle tests, on a…

  • NASCAR Sprint Cup Car Stolen from Georgia Hotel, Found Abandoned Along Rural Road

    1 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    A pair of Georgia car thieves got a little more than they were expecting on Friday morning after they ended up stealing a NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar that was being prepped for this weekend’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The good news is that the $250,000 racecar and the 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty were recovered less than 24 hours after being stolen, but the trailer and the rest of its contents (including a $100,000 backup engine and at least $17,500 worth of other equipment) are still missing.Rather than being shipped in a big car-hauling semi, the No. 44 Team…

    It’s not everyday that you see a supercar burning on the side of the road, but when you do, we’re used to it being either a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. Not this time though, as the footage above depicts a flaming Porsche for a change, filmed while it combusted in a Costco parking lot not far from the Hot Rod Magazine offices.Bystander Robert Radke, who owns the coincidentally named mefiburn.com and also drives a Porsche, was on hand to capture the burning 911 Turbo S with his smartphone.

  • Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Vs Koenigsegg Agera R: Video

    1 Mar 2015 | 4:00 am
    As much as I love supercars, I’ve never been a fan of the Bugatti Veyron. Despite Bugatti’s claims, the Veyron has nothing to do with the brand’s racing origins. Unlike the EB110, the Veyron wasn’t developed with racing in mind. Bugatti built it for the sole purpose of becoming the world’s fastest production car in its attempt to shatter a record McLaren had held since 1993. I could also mention I find its potato-shaped design rather ugly, but I’m well aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Rants aside, from a performance standpoint, the Bugatti…

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling about 25,000 of the 2015 Chrysler 200 for a potential transmission replacement. The recall affects V6-powered models equipped with the brand’s new nine-speed automatic transmission. In the affected models, the park rod may become dislodged or broken, preventing the gearbox from shifting into Park. If the park lock does not engage, the vehicle may roll away."Inconsistent assembly procedures at a supplier’s plant have been linked to five reports involving customers who could not shift their vehicles into park," FCA said in a statement, adding…

  • Should I let my 3.0 warm up?

    Ampt
    1 Mar 2015 | 8:28 pm
    So I've had my '15 GC for 2 months now, and put on 6k miles already. I'm up in Wisconsin where the Winters are cold, and the summers are for road construction, so I'm used to letting my vehicles warm up at least to minimum temps before driving them, but am new to the whole diesel scene. My question is this: Should I let my diesel warm up in the morning before driving it? I know with the EGR and DPF systems, idling for long periods of time is bad, but I also know that Diesels run off of compression and heat, which may incorrectly lead me to believe that I should let it warm up before driving…

    My Virginia inspection failed, due to no Brake light indicated in dash when the parking brake was pulled. So I dug around here and found how to pull the center console, and ordered the sensor from the stealership. Once I had the existing sensor removed and in hand, and noticed its simplicity, I decided a little sanding and scraping to clean the contacts was in order. And, PRESTO, she lights up now! Not sure if the new in box part will work in my 05. Kj, or if it's likely to ever need replaced. Just glad I didn't open, hope I don't get that special order/restocking fee crap when I attempt a…

I gave it a try but at a 100 kph. the little V6 was reving at 3000 rpm. Makes me think if I get a head wind I need more power.

    Sometimes it’s rather funny to sit around and listen to some of the younger generation enthusiasts ponder over classic vehicles. I never considered myself an expert on classics, but I have worked towards getting a better grasp on automotive history dating back to over 100 years ago. Modified Jensen Interceptor from Fast and Furious 6 movie. For those that are intuned to classic vehicles, you will fondly remember Jensen Motors, a British car maker founded in 1934. Since that time, you can probably remember seeing one or MAYBE two such vehicles in local shows or even on the road at one time.

I tried buying an adapter, but none of them worked – so for a while, I went without streaming music such as Pandora in my car, but I could only handle so much pop radio before I caved and looked for alternatives…and along comes the $80 ViseeO Tune2Air Bluetooth Adapter, which works perfectly with the OEM iPod cable.

The person might have had his or her head somewhere in Bizarro World when it was conceptualized. The car does remind me though of the face of a dragonfly, and a locomotive.Staring at it makes…

    A gorgeous Brabus Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe was recently spotted by Motorward at the showroom of Alain Class Motors in Dubai. The car came in a shiny black finish, plus some of the signature customization elements brought about by the popular Mercedes tuner.The enhancements brought about by the Brabus package were just mellow though compared to its other projects. It lacked the usual flashy personalized bumpers, side skirts, fenders, air intakes, and rear spoiler of the firm. However, the specialists of the tuning company really did a great job in the choice of wheels and leather materials…

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, founded by avid Ferrari collector, American James Glickenhaus, will unveil its first supercar at the upcoming Geneva show. Dubbed SCG003, the car will be shown off in both racing and road-going forms at the motor show. The SCG003’s styling is said to be heavily influenced by aerodynamic needs of race cars. Out of weight and rigidity concerns, much of the car is constructed out of carbonfibre. According to the company, the car’s rear…
  • Labor government to keep higher speed limits in Victoria

    Paul Maric
    1 Mar 2015 | 2:53 pm
    The Andrews Labor government has stopped a progressive reduction of 70km/h and 90km/h speed limits following a campaign by community newspapers and a peak Victorian motoring club, the RACV. Originally implemented by the previous Coalition government, the policy aimed to reduce speed limits to 60km/h and 80km/h respectively in 70km/h and 90km/h zones. The policy was originally implemented due to advice from the Victorian body responsible for paying claims for road accident victims, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). The TAC claimed that for every 5km/h increase in speed above 60km/h,…
  • 2015 Toyota Prius C i-Tech Review

    Tim Beissmann
    1 Mar 2015 | 2:30 pm
    We were left a little underwhelmed by the Toyota Prius C when we last tested it in September. Our key criticisms of the Japanese brand’s smallest and best-selling dedicated hybrid were that it was too expensive and had a flimsy interior, average steering, a harsh ride, a coarse and noisy engine, and a hybrid powertrain that was only slightly more fuel efficient than its most frugal petrol rivals. Good news, then, that Toyota has just released an updated version that addresses a number of our concerns. Prices of both variants, the badge-less Prius C entry model and the high-grade i-Tech, are…

    A crossover-style version of the Hyundai i20 will be unveiled on March 17 in India, dubbed the Hyundai i20 Active. The more rugged looking model – described by Hyundai as an “SUV looking car” – is based on the Indian-market Hyundai i20 Elite hatchback, and we’ve seen spy shots of the new SUV version of that car in the past week. The Active version is set to feature the expected off-road styling enhancements such as roof rails, underbody bash-plates and plastic-clad flared wheel arches teamed to bulkier front and rear bumpers. Having been designed by the…

  • The PB review: Suzuki Vitara SZ5 AllGrip

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

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

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

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

    Daimler AG wants to gain substantial cost savings to offset higher costs for technology to cut carbon dioxide emissions, for at least the next few years, according to Chief Financial Officer Bodo Uebber. Larger carmakers have invested large amounts of money for development of fuel-efficient vehicles, but consumers are now being prompted by lower fuel prices to instead purchase larger, less-efficient models. Ford Motor Co. has already warned its investors that consumers in the United States may not pay the full costs of technology to cut greenhouse gas emissions – mainly because gasoline…

The sources said the revised Fisker Karma will be known as Elux Karma, with the Fisker to be dropped.

The similar type of styling is also evident at the fat rear, where the designer added fresh set of exhausts and a diffuser. The front grille has shrunk in size, but the rear is beefed up. Thought the whole design gives it an appearance of Lamborghini Huracan that sits on a long wheelbase. Peeping into…

    16 Feb 2015 | 5:55 am
    What is BAS? The emergency brake assist has been known also as BA or EBA. So when somebody asks you what is BAS, you tell them that this is a state of the art braking technology that will significantly increase the braking pressure in those dangerous road situations. And since it is scientifically proven that we as people do not apply enough pressure when we are faced with danger, I think it is good to have it around. Explanation When we step on the brake pedal, the EBA system interprets the force and the speed of this action and detects if we are trying to do an emergency stopping of the…

    16 Feb 2015 | 5:53 am
    What is ESP? Learning what is ESP may be a little bit complicated because while most of the manufacturers use this abbreviation, others will use DSC (dynamic stability control) or VSA and VSC (vehicle stability assist or control). The original abbreviation stands for electronic stability program and it is a lateral dynamics improvement system which along with the traction control and anti-lock systems makes sure we have a more stable driving experience. How Does It Work? Skidding causes dangerous car accidents on the road and this wonderful invention is guaranteed to stop eighty percent of…

This invention improves the handling and control of the automobile and has been improving considerably ever since the first came out. It is a bona fide life saver that will enable us to steer even we are braking heavily on that slippery road. Inner Workings When we are asking what is ABS, we usually want to know the parts and components that make up this structure. Those are: Wheel speed sensors Calipers Hydraulic motor Valves for pressure release Computer or control module So,…
  • How Traction Control Works

    sysco32
    16 Feb 2015 | 5:50 am
    How Traction Control Works/ASR/ETS TCS (traction control system) or ASR (German for Antriebsschlupfregelung) or even ETS in some vehicles is a safety component for our cars. It helps us use as much of the road traction as we can when we’re driving on those slippery low-friction surfaces. Using this system, our wheels are less likely to slip and the vehicle to not handle as well. However, if we’re trying to drive on ice, nothing will help us, not even this useful invention. So, to learn how traction control works, we have to be driving on wet, uneven, icy or loose roads or maybe even when…

Drinking, texting, nodding off while driving can be a catalyst to something awful that will make us want to know how airbags work in order to save our life. Everybody knows the basics, the vehicles collide (like that song from Howie Day) and the airbag comes out of its shell to save the life of an innocent human being.

    Rocinante is such a whore. 100hp, historic vehicle. In the last decade, new technologies have escalated the horsepower arms race. We all know the Bugatti Veyron had 1,000+ horsepower, but when you can get 700hp from your local Dodge dealer – with a warranty – or even 200hp from less than 2.0L in a Nissan Juke, it’s a good time to be a gearhead.  WELCOME TO THE 100HP CLUB The 100hp club. If your vehicle makes 100hp or so, welcome to the club. My little Rocinante, a 1989 Mitsubishi Pajero, with a carburetted 2.6L 4-banger – in its prime, 25 years ago – made 108hp. A…

This compares with average historical figures that have typically ranged between three per cent and five per cent per annum depending on the vehicle sector.  The statistics are therefore slightly higher than might be normally expected from lifecycle factors. CAP said that the figure is ‘a genuine…

    The government will now put your name and photograph in the newspaper in addition to issuing a hefty fine if you are caught over-speeding under the new draft of Road Transport and Safety Bill. Over-speeding was the reason for 56% deaths of 1.38 lakhs on Indian roads in 2013 While obituaries are the easiest way to get your name and photograph in the newspaper (if you don’t believe in doing something substantial or overly paying the media folks for a front page news), the government has now devised a new plan to make sure that your photo appears in the paper without much effort.

  • 2015 Volvo V40 Luxury Car Review

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

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

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

    24 Feb 2015 | 5:54 am
    Yutaka Katayama, better known as Mr K, the first president of Nissan in the US has died at the age of 105. He was most known for introducing the very cost-effective Datsun Z sports car to American consumers in the early 70s. Mr K stepped down from his position in Nissan and retired altogether from the company in 1977. However, his voice has continued to be an influence for the Z cars, as well as the Nissan brand itself in the US. Katayama was president of the US sales and marketing subsidiary from 1965 to 1975. But in the 1900s, Nissan used an actor bearing similarities to Mr K to feature in…

    It is the goal of countries, like Japan, to promote sustainability and environmentally safe ways to perform, produce and live in general. This is most likely the reason the Land of the Rising Sun now has more vehicle charging hubs than gas stations. According to Japan’s number two car manufacturer, Nissan, there are now 40,000 charging units across the country, including those in private homes, while there are only 34,000 petrol stations. Nissan also said they’re expecting an increase in demand for electric cars, while their rival Toyota said they have been overwhelmed with orders with…

This is exactly what the car manufacturer managed to do when they debuted the Glow-in-the-Dark Nissan Leaf at the Chicago Auto Show. From the name itself, you can pretty much surmise what makes this vehicle unique and wonderful. Nissan has been on a mission to take the lead on the use of specialty car paint. The first was when they used a dirt-resistant paint that led to a creation of a self-cleaning vehicle. If other car manufacturers followed their lead, it could have been the end for the car wash business. The…

But the 2016 Honda Pilot is about to change this.

What it lacks in body style, it makes up for its practical use. At some point, however, mom or dad would want to drive something that is not considered a family car at first glance.

  • Car Brand Loyal or Car Brand Hopper – Which One Are You?

    Author
    10 Feb 2015 | 11:11 am
    Car brand loyalty may be something new to your ears, but manufacturers have actually been offering buyers incentives for sticking to a single brand. According to an R.L. Polk survey in early 2013, 48% of the people who bought a car in 2012 chose the same brand they owned in the past. The survey found that car companies Ford (61.2% repeat buyers), Benz (57.7% repeat buyers) and Toyota (54.4% repeat buyers) had the most number of loyal customers. Still, car brand hopping is a huge concern for many automakers in that more than half of buyers don’t want to stick to a single brand. Loyalty,…

The classic kidney grill, part of the design since 1933, was originally implemented to reduce drag. The long, sloping hood helps distribute weight evenly to all four wheels. Four circular headlights are a relatively new design feature originally conceived to separate higher-end 3-series models from their lesser counterparts.

  • Sunbeam Tiger: Carroll Shelby’s Forsaken Mistress

    Bill Wilson
    1 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    Automotive history is like show business. Both are filled with heartbreaking stories of those who came close to stardom, only to fade into obscurity. For example, consider the Sunbeam Tiger, built by the British-based Rootes Group from 1964 through 1967. The peppy little roadster had a strong engine, sporty looks, and the backing of no less than Carroll Shelby himself. Sadly, the Tiger missed its shot at lasting fame and fortune. This is a shame, because it really was a great automobile. The Tiger was a performance version of the Sunbeam Alpine, which first appeared in 1953. The Alpine was a…

    Speeding up the motorway, you hammer the accelerator pedal until it hits the floorboards. Your heart races with the sound of the engine revving. Blurs are all you see on either side of you, the hyper-real speed of the motorway thrashing your windscreen like a Pollock painting. Then, as though from nowhere, a boxcar veers into view. You smash on the brakes, skid off-road and thunder into a crash barrier. Your neck feels like it could unscrew at any moment and your legs are atrophied in pain. But you’re lucky to be alive. You are the problem – the boy racer endangering the lives of others.

    Jim Taylor

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

    Getting your car serviced regularly is an important part of owning a vehicle. Servicing ensures that the car is running safely and at optimum performance. It identifies if any parts need to be replaced or are in danger of wearing out in the near future. When you purchase a car it will come with a manual that lays out the appropriate schedule of servicing for your vehicle. For the best results, it is recommended that you stick to this schedule, but you do have a choice about who does your service: the manufacturer (or their registered dealerships) or an independent mechanic.

Given that the new car has been built to comply with FIA GT3 regulations, it's simply known as the Mercedes-AMG GT3. There are plenty of differences compared to the road-going model. For example, the usual 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine has been ditched in favour of a normally-aspirated 6.3 litre V8 unit which was previously used in the SLS AMG GT3. Its output is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transaxle transmission. As well as various aerodynamic appendages,…

    Do you remember the days of the iconic BMW M3? Thanks to the German car maker’s model name shakeup, you aren’t able to get a three-door 3 Series M3 convertible anymore.

  • Honda Civic Tourer 2015 Review

    6 Feb 2015 | 9:17 am
    Honda Civic Tourer 2015 is an absolute stunner providing balanced performance and luxury. It provides sufficient space and good driving dynamics. However, there are many other cheaper alternatives that you can choose. When it comes to storage, Honda Civic Tourer has a huge capacity in the boot and you can also fold the back seats to add more room. The rear visibility is poor and dash control buttons are scattered all over the place. Refinement is disappointing as well considering the price of the car. The car comes with plenty of pre-loaded features such as 16inch alloy wheels, DAB radio and…

  • Locating Car Brake Fluid Leaks

    Justin Smith

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

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

  • How to Repair Clearcoat Defects

    20 Feb 2015 | 11:16 am
    Since the 1980s the automotive manufacturers have been painting cars with two stage, base coat/clear coat systems. That may not seem all that long ago to some of us older guys, but these cars are now 30 years old and entering prime project car territory. Because drivetrain technology had hit its stride by then, cars like 5.0 Mustangs are still running and driving just fine. But many cars from the 80s and 90s have clear coat paint that is just peeling and flaking off in chunks. Some cars, like the Plymouth Neon, seemed to have paint and clear coat failing before they were even off lease.

  • A Proper Meter for Vehicle Efficiency: Miles per Dollar Spent

    Wes
    22 Feb 2015 | 9:40 pm
    Miles per Dollar Spent is the new vehicle efficiency metric There’s been much controversy over the environmental cost to drive electric versus the old standard to drive using petroleum.  But how many miles per dollar spent can your vehicle transport you? The results of a California Bay Area website may or may not shock you. The AfterOilEV blog has a simple metric with alterable values so that you can estimate for yourself, the local costs and values.  How far does your dollar go?  Although those who drive electric may have a much shorter range, is their cost really that much less.

     Big City Car Smart is attempting some new strategies on selling the brand in the US, and one of them is the Big City Car.  Rather than just innovate, Smart has gone overboard to the point of ridiculous. Of course it is possible to sling mud at one’s opponents, but why not just make fun of yourself?  The new Big City Car is real, at least as a prototype, but it is unreasonably large.   And it is merely a 1.5 scale model of the current Smart City car.

    Nearly three fourths of vehicles in 2014 offered some type of blind spot assistance, while at least half offered lane departure warnings. Consumers are purchasing vehicles for the promise of improved safety, but we have to question just how well these technologies work. AAA recently released a report that answered just that question. The answer? They work well — for the most part.

  • Technician Pay Plans

    Michael Larkum
    2 Feb 2015 | 10:40 am
    Below are some thoughts on what overpaying a technician can do to your profitability and a suggestion on how to set up a simple, effective pay plan that will protect your bottom line. Let’s start with what you [hopefully] know: In order to run a profitable service department, your gross margins (i.e. the difference between what you collect from the customer and what you pay the technician) must be above 70% on retail, warranty and internal labor, preferably 72-75%. These margins can be weak if discounting is rampant, pricing is faulty, or technician pay plans are not set up properly.

    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…

  • Shop Supplies – The Little Things Add Up

    Michael Larkum
    25 Apr 2014 | 1:10 pm
    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…

    Mike Mardinly
    24 Feb 2015 | 8:58 am
    There are so many myths when it comes to proper car care in the winter that it’s pretty hard to keep them all straight. We often have customers ask us about the best ways to start their cars and get moving on cold mornings, so we decided to compile them all into one FAQ post. Q. Should I let my car warm up before driving? A. Unless your was built before 1990, the answer is no. Modern cars don’t have carburetors that need to warm up. Post-1990 vehicles should be ready to go in just 30 seconds. For more information, refer to a previous blog post. Q. Should I start my car every day…

    Mike Mardinly
    17 Feb 2015 | 8:34 am
    In a new article released by CNN, auto repair shops throughout the country are making claims that major auto insurance companies are pressuring them to use cheap or damaged parts for repairs or risk losing business. In some cases, these faulty parts can make a vehicle dangerous to drive. However if the shop refuses to make the cheap repairs, the insurance company will steer business away and point their clients toward a shop that is willing to go along with the program. While most major insurance companies deny these claims, more than 500 garages from 36 states are joining in a lawsuit…

  • Are You Still Idling Your Car on Cold Mornings? Don’t Believe the Myth.

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

  • Toyota Still #1 will 2015 be a Smooth Ride?

    17 Feb 2015 | 7:50 am
    It comes as no surprise that Toyota remained number-one in terms of number of vehicles sold in 2014. The company has been holding the pole position for some time now and even now, it seems unlikely they will let go anytime soon. The company was able to sell more than both GM and Volkswagen, its biggest competitors. However, some industry insiders believe 2014 could be the end of Toyota’s reign as the best-selling car brand on the planet. It all depends on how the company is able to deal with the challenges it is expected to face in the current year. Let's see if Toyota's smooth ride lasts.

    27 Feb 2015 | 4:37 am
    Consumer Reports has named the Tesla Model S as its overall top pick for the second year in a row. For a publication that uses superlatives sparingly, it lavishes praise on the Model S. For all of the impressive new vehicles released in 2014, none was able to eclipse the innovation, magnificence, and sheer technological arrogance of the Tesla. That’s why it’s our best overall pick for the second consecutive year. Through the course of their life cycles, cars become obsolete quickly as newer models appear with updated gizmos.

  • Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE hybrid teased

    The Volkswagen CC is a “four-door coupe” based on the Passat that features sportier styling, but none of the green powertrains available on that more mundane model globally. VW looks to be on the way to rectifying that with the Sport Coupe Concept GTE, a four-door hybrid that will debut next week at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and preview the next CC. The styling in these design sketches is certainly more dramatic than the humdrum regular Passat, with a super-low roofline and thin headlights and taillights that look stretched out by speed. However, green car buyers will probably…

    The teaser campaign has begun for what will likely be revealed as the Lamborghini Aventador SV at the Geneva Motor Show, promising to be the “most reactive car”. The Super Veloce moniker – Italian for “super fast” – is reserved for only the most brutal V12 models from Lamborghini meaning the end result should be something rather special.

The driver of the minivan accused the Honda S2000 driver of running a red light and causing the collision, a story which the police sided with until the dashcam footage emerged clearly showing the Honda S2000 wasn’t at fault. The owner of the S2000 is hopeful that it isn’t a write-off, but with an $8,000 repair bill it’s not looking promising.

    12 Jan 2015 | 7:16 am
    We all know that in today’s world, one of the bitterest competitions being led is between law enforcement that tries to catch speedy drivers off guard and fine them or take away their driver’s license and the drivers that use radar detectors, laser jammers and other ways of avoiding the law enforcement. The more adapted and advanced the speed guns and the laser guns the police use are, the more adapted the radar detectors will become in time and therefore the competition is very tight. The market for radar detectors is huge, with hundreds of models produced by well known and trustworthy…

Their latest creation, the RS6 Clubsport, takes MTM’s triple threat to new heights. Debuting at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Clubsport starts life as an already fast and capable RS6 Avant but MTM got a little carried away after that. For starters, the Clubsport wears an impressively un-subtle orange-over-gray paint job with white checkerboard squares splashed across the rear quarter-panels.

    Wintertime in Wisconsin is a great time to try to do screen door repair, right? We have an older screen door purchased a while back from Lisbon in Milwaukee that I took down due to some issues, and I wanted to try to spruce it up when I had some spare time. As luck would have it I had a three day weekend, and with nothing else to do other than sit in the Firebird and dream of warmer months, I decided to replace the screen and get started on fixing my door up.

That means that a manufacturer doesn’t just show off a new car during say, the Super Bowl, and then head to the big race in France in June. Thousands of laps worth of testing go into campaigning a Le Mans contender. Despite having dominated IMSA in the early Nineties, Nissan has never won at Le Mans, so you know that every ounce of effort is going to be put into developing the innovative LMP1 GT-R LM into a winner.

    Auto manufacturers tend to market the all out performance and handling of all wheel drive cars, but handling is a relative thing and if all four wheels are spinning, chances are that all is not well. The driver of a Nissan GT-R recently found that out the hard way at Edinburgh Speedway in Texas, when the car was launched hard off the line and lost traction, causing it to turn hard right, into the Armco barrier. Unlike a cement wall, which would have contained the car and caused a bit of body damage and perhaps a damaged wheel and tie rod, the Armco folded like a chip bag and Godzilla crossed…

Enjoy 60 seconds of glorious tire-screaming-engine-roaring automotive music. As a refresher, Chevrolet’s “no lift shift” on the Camaro allows the driver to keep the accelerator floored during shifting, and the computer does all the work.
