  • Suck It, Mustang: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Loses More Camo, Comes Into Clearer Focus

    A lighter and tighter Chevrolet Camaro this way comes. We last checked in on Chevy’s future pony car a few months ago, when we published aerial spy photographs of the car being evaluated at General Motors’ proving ground. That prototype was well-camouflaged, but its general shape gave it away as the 2016 Camaro. The car pictured here is clearly a Camaro, and its details are now on clearer display—and from a more normal vantage point. Now that the Camaro has shed its bulky cover-up, we can speak to the car’s design. The form-fitting camouflage on this prototype reveals styling…

  • Zagato and Aston Martin team up once again to build a one-off shooting brake

    admin
    26 Sep 2014 | 4:02 pm
    Aston Martin and Zagato came together to create a unique and one-off model: the Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake Zagato. Built specially for a particular European customer in mind, the Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake Zagato was designed to be “a modern interpretation with design cues of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Volante of the mid 80s,” further emphasizing Aston’s and Zagato’s strong relationship. The world premiere of the one-off Virage Shooting Brake Zagato takes place at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2014 gathering, where Zagato also plans to…

    The Germans are still on their binge of trying to fill in every niche possible, and this latest digital rendering is an example. The Audi TT just entered its third generation and rumors in the past spoke of Audi’s interest in expanding the TT’s lineup with different bodystyles. The first example we saw of that was the Audi TT Offroad Concept from the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. This latest example implies Audi’s interest in making the TT into a four-door coupe. But what could be a greater indications that the TT family might actually grow are the similar design cues as the Audi…
  • Recalls: The Ferrari 458 Italia and Spider get recalled in the US

    26 Sep 2014 | 6:54 am
    Get this. The Ferrari 458 Italia and 458 Spider are being recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration not because it’ll spontaneous combust, but because someone could get trapped in the golf hole that they call a trunk. But really, we wonder, how one could end inside a 458′s tiny boot. Should one be accidentally tempted and abducted in the trunk of a 458, they should be able to escape out of the front by pulling a release. But there is no release. So the NHTSA is instructing all 458s to be retrofitted with an inner trunk release so the captive could open the…
  • BMW M Division gets a new department head to take Friedrich Nitscke’s place

    26 Sep 2014 | 6:26 am
    BMW is doing some internal work by giving their coveted M Division a new leader. Since 2011 it’s been under the helm of Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, who’s responsible for cars like the new M3, M4 and M5. Taking his place is former managing director of Audi Quattro GmbH, Franciscus van Meel. This could be a sign of things to come, such as the influx of xDrive all-wheel drive M-cars. All-wheel drive is becoming very popular and more readily available, especially in the luxury performance department after Mercedes-Benz added 4MATIC all-wheel drive to the S-Class and E-Class AMG models.

    The Truth About Cars

  • Toyota Recalls 690K Tacomas Over Rear Suspension Issues

    Cameron Aubernon
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Own a 2005 through 2011 Toyota Tacoma? It may be under recall due to rear suspension issues. Toyota informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of its plans to recall 690,000 2005-2011 Tacoma 4×4 and Pre-Runner trucks to fix the leaf springs in the rear suspension. The possibility is there for a leaf to fracture “due to stress and corrosion,” then make contact with other components once moved out of place. Should said component be the fuel tank, a puncture could occur, leading to fuel leaks with the potential for fire to occur if an ignition source is nearby.

Automotive News reports the designer, whose father gave the world the aforementioned sports car, is hard at work on bringing back the RX line. Though nothing is set in stone, and that the Skyactiv engine “is a wonderful powertrain,” Maeda insists the next RX must live up to its name. However, engineers are still at a loss as to how to make the rotary engine cleaner to meet…

Alas, the spyware could land the owner in legal hot water in a dozen states, to say the least.

    During the Mercedes-Benz family’s most recent growth spurt, the entry-luxe CLA and the top dog Mercedes-AMG GT S have grabbed inordinate attention. More significant is how the new C-class fares against rising hostility in the premium compact-sedan class. Traditionally, Audi has been the style and luxury leader and BMW has defined exemplary performance, while Cadillac’s ATS, Acura’s TLX, and the latest Lexus IS are fresh party crashers. But, as we’ve determined by driving and testing the new Benz Cs, the silver star aspires to topple that order. As the brand’s top seller, the C-class…

  • Not Astron! Asterion! Photos Appear of Reported Lamborghini Mega-Hybrid Set for Paris Debut

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:09 pm
    In the early 1970s, Lamborghini was setting the world on its ear with the futuristic Countach and their Italianate take on the AMC Marlin, the mighty Espada. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, was working hard to integrate twin balance shafts into a modest overhead-cam four-banger. The result of these endeavors? Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ’80s-bedroom-wall sensation, didn’t find true success until it fell into the hands of the Volkswagen Group in 1998. The Silent-Shaft-equipped Mitsubishi Starion, however, spearheaded…

    The late 1960s and early ’70s were an important period for exotic-car design. Four cars defined the era and set the stage for the wedge-shaped supercars that would later symbolize the ’80s. Those show cars were the Alfa Romeo Carabo, the Lancia Stratos Zero, and the Lamborghini LP500 concept, all designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, along with Pininfarina’s spectacular Modulo, styled by Paolo Martin. Growing up, the Modulo was always the one that stuck with me. First, it was a Ferrari. The basis for the Modulo, remember, was a 512S chassis and drivetrain. But man, that…

    Back in the late 1990’s, auto manufacturers were scrambling to add more variations of the SUV theme “song” to their line-up. Gas prices were low and North Americans were in love with their sport utes. Dodge made quite an entry to the SUV marketplace with the Durango in 1998. Based on their new (at the time) Dakota pickup truck, the Durango offered up to seven passenger seating, the most cargo space in its class, and thanks to the body-on-frame construction, 3.5 tons of towing capacity. Buyers were so smitten by the trucky first generation Durango that they even ignored the tail lamps…

BMW’s two-year research project will study what the automaker calls “highly automated” driving on highways in Beijing and Shanghai.

For example, a 2015 Audi A3 I recently tested had an “efficiency program” display as part of the driver information system in the instrument panel that, of course, shows current fuel economy. But it also displays how certain car features — such as air conditioning — influence mpg. It uses distance traveled and consumption data from the trip computer…

While a furtive glance down at a device is now a common sight on roadways — and if seen by law enforcement can cause a driver to be ticketed — vehicles from General Motors may soon be watching whether drivers are distracted. According to The Financial Times, GM plans to incorporate head- and eye-tracking technology in…

With Marco Wittman already crowned series champion, two-time champion Ekstrom found himself out of contention earlier than usual this season.

An ever-present exhaust growl rises up through the floor, turbocharger whine pierces the afternoon air and downshift pops bounce off canyon walls. Satisfied and in need of respite, I rolled the windows back up. Wrong move.

    The newest Mercedes-Benz C63’s engine, despite having 2 liters less displacement, will make up to 503 horsepower, making far more powerful than the car it is set to replace. Anyone who misses the old naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V8 will soon be won over by a rush of power from the new engines and improved chassis of the C63. Following the naming trend of the Mercedes-AMG GT, the new sedan will not technically be a Mercedes-Benz, but rather the Mercedes-AMG C63. The base C63’s output rises to 469 horsepower, while the C63 S boasts 503 horsepower.

The establishment features Ferrari, Maserati, and the occasional "previously owned" Rolls-Royce Motorcar and such. Why, I even thought I saw a more-pedestrian BMW on the premises.

    As Tigerstrypes' recent post emphasized, Kia has made a stealth ascent within the US auto market, moving from punchline to serious contender in the space of a generation. Once considered the ultimate in disposable transport, Kia's lineup has morphed into a kaleidoscope of seeming contradictions: Kias can be both derivative and innovative, cheap and luxy, aspirationally flashy and plain-jane commuter. The company's marketing injects goofball hamster-laden whimsy into a famously risk-averse industry; its design cues manage to be distinctive but not "polarizing"; and we…

    Generation 1 and 2 Dodge Viper RT/10 roadsters are raw, rough, impractical, uncomfortable and unforgiving. But no one ever bought a Viper thinking they were getting a modern interpretation of the 1965 Imperial. People bought Vipers because they wanted the modern interpretation of the 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra. And on that promise the Viper roadster delivered. Like a British sports car stuffed with a howling large-displacement American engine, the Viper was unapologetically crude. There were no outside door handles, cockpit wind and rain protection was an afterthought, the car’s handling and…

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist I wrote a column a couple years ago (see here) that mentioned an unspeakable truth: Relative to now — classic muscle cars were slow. Back in the day, when the typical passenger car took 10 seconds (or more) to get to 60 MPH, a car that could get there in seven was faster-than-light. Today, it’s Camry Speed. Today, the performance (0-60, quarter mile, top speed, etc.) delivered by most factory-stock ’60s and ’70s-era V-8 muscle cars has been equaled — or bettered — by family cars with V-6 engines. Today’s V-8…

One of the few — one of the two — that’s not is VW’s Jetta TDI. Its only competition is the Chevy Cruze diesel, which is the only other diesel-powered sedan you can currently buy for less than $25k. But in the Chevy’s case, just barely. Its MSRP is $24,985 — and unless you possess epic haggling skills, the out-the-door price (including taxes and tags) is almost certain to be over $25k. Meanwhile, the Jetta…

    Filed under: Budget, Minivan/Van, Europe, Paris Motor Show, Hatchback, Kia The Rio may not be the most popular Kia in the United States - not by a long shot - but it was the brand's top seller globally last year. Little wonder, then, that although the current fourth-generation model was only introduced in 2011, the Korean automaker is already rolling out a facelifted version. Set to be revealed later this week at the Paris Motor Show, the 2015 Kia Rio has been updated inside, out and under the hood. The front end gets a new grille, bumper and foglights, there's a new bumper around back, and a…

    Filed under: Classics, Videos, Celebrities, Specialty, TV/Movies A new Batmobile is on the way for the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it blends the military styling of the one in the Dark Knight trilogy with some of the sleekness from the version in the '89 Tim Burton movie. With a new model imminent, it's a perfect time to honor three of the most famous shapes for the Caped Crusader's ride, and a group called The Piano Guys are doing just that in a new music video featuring a medley of Batman theme tunes played on a cello and piano.

    Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Tesla Motors, Legislation and Policy, USA, Videos Getting a Tesla Model S for just $50,000 is a steal, but when it's a salvage title car and was written off as totaled by an insurance company, the bargain might not be worth the headache. That's what a San Diego man is learning now that he's having trouble getting his fancy but damaged electric vehicle to work. Tesla has a different version of the story, of course. Peter Rutman has spent $8,000 in repairs for his EV, but there's one important bit of help he still needs: official activation from Tesla. Rutman is…

Since taking the wheel at Cadillac, he instigated moving the luxury division's base of operations to Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood and introduced a new naming scheme for the future of the brand, like he did at Infiniti. The polarizing boss recently explained his feelings about the future of Cadillac in more depth on his Facebook page, but unfortunately only his friends could read it.

    Using the ‘wearable computer’ Google Glass to compose a text message while driving is no safer than using a mobile phone handset to type the message, a new report has found. The findings come from a University of Central Florida (UCF) study, which concluded that the level of driver distraction caused by each device to perform the task was similar.

Take Rowen Japan, for example: It has introduced what it calls the Silver Wolf (Yes, we know, this particular one is black…), an F430 coupe with a downright devilish body kit, Prodrive wheels and a racing-style Heat Blue Titan exhaust system.

The most recent tuner to offer a glimpse at its pumped-up pony is a company that has been associated with Ford almost as long as there’s been a Mustang: Roush Performance. The body kit, 20” wheels and quad-tip exhaust all look positively killer but, as we know, Roush Performance Mustangs are as much about go as they are show, and its new ones will continue…

But lately, it seems like that rule is becoming rather flexible (No pun intended.). Ferrari built a small quantity of Scuderi Spider 16Ms (basically a convertible version of the 430 Scuderia) near the end of the F430’s production run, and Chevrolet is not only selling the new Corvette Z06 with the regular C7 Stingray…

    Despite Kia's recent entrance into the uber-lux car segment with the 2015 K900, a full-size sedan, many of us may still think of Kia as a budget brand. With the launch of the reinvented 2015 Kia Sedona, some families may pause before spending around $40,000 for the fully loaded minivan, which you have to do to get all the nifty features. This puts the Sedona in the same price range as the bulk its competitors; read, no major cost savings here. So why should a family consider springing for the rather pricey Kia minivan?

    If Monster Tajima Built An Electric Car...The Future Has Arrived It is always fascinating to look back in history and see how designers imagined the car of the future. The stylistic exercises of the ’50s and ’60s spawned some pretty quirky concepts more inspired by sci-fi films than by function. But if we ask ourselves the same question today, it would be just as hard to form an accurate view of the automobile 30 or 40 years from now. While style and form are ever-evolving and difficult to predict, one thing is pretty much a given – the future of the automobile almost certainly…

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:25 am
    Itching to venture off the beaten path, but don’t necessarily want a crossover? It’s a desirable proposition from a growing niche of consumers. You might think of Subaru as the go-to brand for rugged wagons or even Audi with its Allroad wagon, but Volvo has just updated its V40 to make it a strong contender. The updated V40 Cross Country is finally receiving all-wheel drive to aid drivers in those multi-terrain adventures. Power is supplied by Volvo’s new Drive-E powertrain which features a 245 horsepower 1.7-liter T5 engine. Not only is the new powertrain more powerful and more capable…

    Infiniti knows just how to create a head-turning concept. They’ve done it before with the Essence concept — a vehicle that we can see hints of today in the Q50 sedan. Now, ahead of the Paris Motor Show, Infiniti is gearing up to show an all-new concept that should rival Essence’s stunning beauty. Teased this week but slated to be unveiled in October, the Q80 Inspiration is Infiniti’s vision of a category-defying, top-of-the-line four-seat fastback. It boasts a long wheelbase and a wide stance. With 22-inch five-dual-spoke lightweight alloys, the concept has an imposing look.

    Fiat has admitted that an all-electric variant of its 500 subcompact isn’t a money-making venture. In fact, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a recent speech, “If you are considering buying a 500e, I hope you don’t buy it because every time I sell one, it costs me $14,000.” Needless to say, the automaker doesn’t have high hopes for this new model. Still, Fiat’s 500e is yet another option for the growing number of drivers interested in ditching gasoline in favor of driving an electric vehicle. The 2015 Fiat 500e is rolling out…

This new trim level features the fresh styling of completely redesign XC90, but it’s been tweaked to attract drivers looking for a sportier aesthetic. Mechanically, Volvo hasn’t changed anything from the standard XC90, which is also available in Momentum and Inscription trims. Instead, the sportier model is about more expressive design. In an attempt to deliver that expression, the R-Design model features a revised grille with horizontal slats, a…

    Rick Cole returned to the Monterey auctions this year after a long absence, bringing with him a new format with on-site previews and on-line only bidding. Rick was the first to hold a collector car auction in Monterey, conducting the first one in 1986 and continuing well into the next decade. Until Christie’s appeared on the grounds at Pebble Beach, the Rick Cole auction in Portola Plaza was the only game in town, the place to be late on Friday and Saturday evenings long after racing at Laguna Seca had concluded for the day.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: Too Much Truck?

    tgriffith
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    I think I figured out why midsize trucks are suddenly back in vogue. Remember when the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma were small? Back in the 1980s and 90s, those small trucks were significantly cheaper than their bigger brethren. By the 2000s, though, the Ranger faded away and the Tacoma grew to the size of an F-150, and often more expensive. Now, the big trucks have grown even bigger, with price tags that are sending folks back to the comforts of something smaller. Yes, we have entered the era of the $47,000 truck. Car and Driver took a stab at building a new 2015 F-150, and ended at just…
  • Should Isuzu Have Another Chance at America?

    Our old Isuzu Rodeo rarely made it from home to school without breaking down. We never did determine exactly why the Rodeo would lose power while cruising on the highway, but every time it happened we were able to pull off to the shoulder and restart the engine without trouble. The process became a quirk of the car, which served me and at least one brother well in our college years. The Isuzu didn’t last long in the family once college was over, because our view of the brand had soured a bit. In early 2009, the brand left the U.S. market for good. Memories of that old Rodeo came back…

  • Why isn’t the Replacement of a Windshield Covered by some Car Insurance?

    Manny

    Damage to a windshield can be both annoying and potentially dangerous if it isn’t fixed in a timely manner. Once a chip occurs it’s very easy for it to spread. If this happens when you’re driving you can see the potential dangers that may occur. Taking all this into account it can seem unfair that windshield repair is not necessarily included on your car insurance. You should check whether this is the case when you take out your car insurance and decide whether you need any additional coverage. Is windshield repair and replacement ever covered on my car insurance? If you have…

This is particularly true in the technology industry with mobile phones being constantly updated, and it can also true of the automotive industry.

Analysts predict that the British brand will sell a record 4,000 cars this year, despite RR not showing interest towards pushing large volumes. The volume spinner, if it can be called that, behind this impending record is the Ghost. As expected, Rolls Royce would manage to rake in the record sales figures thanks to its entry level model, or as Rolls Royce would call it, its “least expensive model”, the Ghost.

  • 2014 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Review

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Hyundai is trying to give the popular Honda Civic Coupe a run for its money and it looks like they are succeeding. Hyundai updates their compact Elantra Coupe for 2014 and it gets more power, a sportier suspension and more driver engagement than the outgoing model. More power is always good for driving enthusiasts, but it can be harder on the pocketbook at the gas pump which is the case with the new Elantra Coupe. But it could be worth the cost if it translates to better driving dynamics on the road. This week we’ll find out as we test drive the 2014 Hyundai Elantra Coupe. Our tester…

  • 2014 Lexus GX460 Review

    24 Sep 2014 | 4:34 pm
    Most people will never use their luxury SUV for off-road adventures, but with the Lexus GX460, you definitely can. When you think of a tough SUV, Lexus doesn’t usually come to mind. We think of Land Rover and Jeep, but not Lexus. The 2014 Lexus GX460 has the looks and feel of a luxury SUV, but its platform is shared with the off-road capable Toyota 4Runner. This big Lexus SUV is designed to hold up to regular use over rugged terrain, and is up to the task of taking on more challenging trails. And for someone needing to tow a boat, motorhome or recreation toys, the GX460 fits the bill.

  • Subaru Impreza

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Launched in 1992, the Impreza quickly became one of Subaru’s most iconic vehicle, mostly due to its successful early campaigns in the World Rally Championship. Kept in production for eight years until 2000, the first-generation Impreza was sold with a bevy of flat-four engines displacing from 1.5 to 2.5 liters and in three body styles, four-door coupe, sedan, and five-door hatchback. The second-gen model, also known as the "bugeye era" Impreza was built between 2000 and 2007, and it was the first to lack a coupe version. The third-generation model followed in 2007, with a refresh to…

  • Spy Shots: Next-Generation Chevrolet Camaro Drops Camo

    Chevrolet is getting bolder in testing its upcoming sixth-generation Camaro in public. The camo-covered car was just spotted outside the Nürburgring sporting five-spoke wheels, quad exhaust pipes, a rear wing, and what looks like heat extractors on its hood. While official details are still scarce, these spy shots afford us the best look so far.The car as a whole looks smaller than the current Camaro. Its doors and rear deck lid appear to be shorter than before. Its roof looks lower as well — a fact that weekend track warriors might cringe at when thinking about dawning a helmet.

System says Service Reversing Sensors, done the usual, cleaned sensors, roof line led's light up and then go out as expected, panel switch off led is illuminated, personal settings show it as off and won't let you turn it on (I guess this is because the system is showing a fault).

    As the “going green” trend continues to gain popularity, many people are finding passion in plants. It’s not a new idea; people have long grown food in their yards, and in the 1940s, the government even encouraged them to keep “Victory Gardens” and buy local produce so that commercially grown food could go toward the troops overseas. Now, even though there’s no World War encouraging the trend, people are getting back to shopping local and growing their own produce in an effort to live more eco-friendly lives.

  • Steffen’s B7 Avant with RS4 Conversion from Norway

    Nick Roshon
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:06 am
    This latest featured ride comes to us from Norway and is modded to the max! The owner Steffen bought the car with some mods already done to it, but as many enthusiasts know there is always more to be done. Steffen started with the interior, scouting some beautiful RS4 bucket seats off ebay.de from a totaled RS4. Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…
  • Chris Sandelli’s Camo Allroad

    6 Sep 2014 | 9:32 am
    This month’s Featured Ride first caught my eye from my friend David’s coverage of Wuste 2014, and then I saw the car (and owner) pop up in my Instagram feed as @CRSANDELLI and I had to reach out to Chris and learn more. Chris was kind enbough to share more information and pictures which I’ve posted here, and he happens to work at Audi Denver in Littleton, Colorado, so be sure to hit him up if you need any help with a new or used Audi in that area. While this car looks extreme, the mod list is actually fairly straightforward: Suspension: Airlift Performance Series bags with…
  • Big SoCal Euro 2014 Event Coverage

    The Big SoCal Euro Gathering has been my favorite car show for the last two years (see 2013 coverage & 2012 coverage) and this year was no exception – another incredible event of all makes and models set at the massive Qualcomm Stadium parking lot here in sunny San Diego, California. The show had something for everyone, ranging from full-on race cars like the GMG LMS R8 to wild show cars like the Vollkomen Design Porsche above, as well as plenty in-between. Like previous years this “Euro Gathering” had many of the pros of a good car show without any of the cons; there…
  • Photo Shoot: My B7 Audi S4 on Volk LE37s

    Nick Roshon
    25 Aug 2014 | 9:03 am
    I recently found a set of used and very rare Volk LE37s on the Audizine Classifieds and refurbished them – the wheels are very similar to the more common TE37s, but unlike the TE37s these come in a 5×112 bolt pattern. The other main differences between the TE37s and LE37s are the center caps, decals, and finish – but they’re more or less the same wheels otherwise. The wheels have been discontinued so there isn’t a lot of information about them out there, but what I do know about the wheels is this – they’re 19×8.5 with an offset of ET35, they are…
  • oCarbon Flat Bottom CF Steering Wheel Trim

    Nick Roshon
    24 Aug 2014 | 3:49 pm
    As regular readers of this blog may know, I’ve worked with oCarbon in the past to commission some custom made interior trim and B- and C-pillars for my S4 to replace the OEM parts – and now oCarbon has outdone themselves once again with a new surround for my flat bottom steering wheel, completing the look I was going for. It’s a direct swap for the OEM piece, and the install process is fairly painless. I couldn’t find a DIY online to replace the steering wheel trim on a TT, A3 or similar flat bottom steering wheel, so I thought I’d create a quick one here with…

The French car-maker hopes this long-awaited new-generation model will re-establish it in the small car segment against rivals such as the Volkswagen Golf when it launches around the end of October. The outgoing previous generation was one of the oldest and tiredest in the segment, and Peugeot has made some pretty dramatic changes as part of its stated plan to move upmarket.

The 2016 Lexus GS F – which has been outed in prototype guise in the past – was spotted in an undisclosed location in Europe in these new images, with the car wearing chequered camouflage, with its disguise prevalent over the car’s most stylised elements, including its front and rear bumpers, side skirts and front fenders. That front bumper is drastically different to the one seen on the more luxury-focused GS variants, with oversized air intakes and a lower spoiler – though the…
  • GM talks camouflage, shows a little of the next-generation Holden Volt

    29 Sep 2014 | 9:08 pm
    Overnight GM showed off a heavily camouflaged photo of its next-generation Chevrolet Volt, which we’ll again know as the Holden Volt. The side-on shot (above), with Volt chief engineer Andrew Farah parked in front it, reveals nothing that our earlier spy photos haven’t already shown. What was more interesting was what the company said about the car’s camouflage. Every car maker worth their salt has a large proving ground filled with all types of road surfaces, corners, obstacles and high speed loops. Despite that, automakers still need to test new cars out in the open under…
  • DIY: Alloy And Metal Exterior Detailing

    Trent Nikolic
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:21 pm
    New vehicles certainly have less chrome, alloy, and various external metal surfaces than old cars do. That said, there’s still plenty of cars with chrome detail trim and brushed alloy surfaces, not to mention (often expensive alloy wheels). For the purposes of photography check out the nasty chrome bumper on the 1958 Volkswagen Beetle above. It’s not pretty no matter which angle you look at it from. A little bit of elbow grease, and some Meguiars metal polish though, and look at the shine we managed to get back in a few short minutes. Obviously, we’d need to go to work for a…

    It seems that Volkswagen’s target to becoming the largest carmaker in the world in a few years’ time is currently facing a hurdle inside its organization. Relations between management and its workers have become worse overtime, as well as the current production situation at the carmaker’s main site in Wolfsburg could be an indication. Witnesses told Reuters that the carmaker’s supposedly automated e-Golf assembly line at the plant has been teeming with worker handing metal sheets to robots. VW saw the need for such improvisation after the e-Golf failed a simulated…

  • Next-generation Mazda RX sports car will only arrive with a rotary engine, design chief says

    Mazda’s global design chief Ikuo Maeda seems determined to convince company officials that the brand needs a new RX model. Maeda, who designed the RX-8 sports car while his father was the creator of the RX-7, says that he will never give up but still, nothing has been decided. What’s for sure is that the next-generation sports car won’t get a fuel-injected Skyactiv engine. Maeda is convinced that the upcoming vehicle should get a rotary engine because even its name, RX, refers to ‘rotary’. For those who don’t know, the RX-8 was phased out in 2012 due to…

    29 Sep 2014 | 10:26 pm

Engineers when developing this Italian super chic may not have taken a brainstorming session over such camping usage. But then it could be a surprise for them when one such example out of 1,315 had actually taken the challenge in real world condition. As seen here, the perfected tents are tied to the rooftop, and the red Ferrari is taking up every task thrown to it just…

Owners of a collector car valued in the $1 million to $5 million USD probably own many cars although maybe only one at $5 million and the individual values may vary quite a bit and go below $1 million for a single car, or many cars.

It will be a while before you stop worrying about every “new” noise under the hood. That ticking noise, for example. Is it just a lifter, an exhaust leak, or a rod bearing about to let go because you weren’t hyper-vigilant enough during assembly? The irony, of course, being you bought this older machine for its relative simplicity. Things aren’t always so simple.  And yet, they are. I’m…

  • Is car sharing really good for the environment?

    Timothy Alcock
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:58 am
    Car sharing or lift sharing can be a convenient way for two or more people to make a journey, be it to work, on a day trip out or for other reasons.

This is important, especially with the rising costs of fuel and the numbers of vehicles on our roads increasing congestion and journey times. But is car sharing a good route to take, and is car sharing really good for the environment? Car sharing is best suited to those who reside in the big cities where there is the benefit of great transport links, and people…

From there on it went from a great car to a superb one.

When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store.

    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

    It’s about that time of year when a number of states start getting into Daylight Savings mode (New Zealanders did the change last weekend).  This peculiar hangover from Victorian England often leads to an increase in traffic accidents as the entire country (minus those sensible, sensible states that don’t bother with the whole palaver) goes through jet lag. Especially the springtime changeover where you have to get up an hour earlier than usual. There has been some research into how the Daylight Savings changeover affects traffic responses.  An article published in the New England…

  • Classic, Vintage and Antique – How Can You Tell?

    Megan
    21 Sep 2014 | 2:55 pm
    A decent slice of the driving population isn’t into new cars so much. OK, they might drive newer models to get from A to B and for general bread-and-butter driving. But when they drive for pleasure, they look to the past: to classics, vintages and antiques.  Sometimes, you may hear the word “veteran” bandied about. When we hear the word “vintage” pop into our heads, we usually get mental pictures of something with big goggly headlamps, seriously sprung upholstery, a square top and big mudguards.  The Ford Model T would be a prime example.  When “classic” is mentioned, mental…

    Across the globe, there’s commonality now that the internet is part of our lives and we can see that commonality in road rules. Red lights and Stop signs mean stop, green means go, roundabouts confuse. Yet, in real terms, driving on our roads really isn’t that complicated, as so many seem to think. Let’s have a look at some of the more basic rules. Indication: this is one of the simplest, yet, seemingly, most misunderstood parts of driving.

    I don’t know about you, but does it seem, in the light of Megan’s wonderful contributions recently, that the ability of people to take responsibility for their actions has decreased to the point that it’s almost illegal to be seen as doing so? Road rage is here and it’s here to stay. Yet there really are no reasons why it should be, BUT it’s also too easy to understand why road rage exists, given some of the truly awesomely garbage antics that are meant to be examples of driving, that we see on our roads daily.

    Much like all names in existence and made up, car names can also run from bad to weird. Whoever came up with Buick Reatta or Pontiac Aztek might have thought it clever, but a majority of car owners thinks it’s hard to remember much less spell. But if the name goes something like Jaguar or Mustang, everyone just assumes without question that the vehicle would be powerful and amazing on the road. While it’s so easy for people to poke fun at car names, very few know the lengths car companies go to just to develop a really rousing, interesting label. Ford Explorer and Dodge Ram may have had…

      Before studying the cooling system of the automobile engine, it is important to know how the heat is generated in the engine. As we look at the process of heat generation, the purpose, need and function of the cooling system is much easier to understand. The main source of heat in the engine is the combustion of the air-fuel mixture. There is also friction between the rotating and moving parts inside of the engine. Friction can be reduced or controlled by using a lubrication system,on the mechanical components, but the main source of heat is the heat produced in the combustion chamber.

For the past two years, Audi has been making noise at different technology events and auto shows by showcasing the autonomous driving capabilities they are developing. Until now, the company – which is owned by Volkswagen – has been hesitant to put an actual date when the self-driving features might be available on actual cars. Audi CFO Axel Strotbeck detailed a system during a keynote address at the Frankfurt School of Finance where a car can follow…

Over 50 years later there are some who would call this man a prophet. But in fairness to Minow, who was Chairman of the FCC at the time, his point was more impartial as he said, “When television is good, nothing is better.

    Internet marketing content has tightened its scope. This is a fact you need to realize and respond to in creating core product content for today’s online shopper. The new rule of thumb: more specific content produces much better results. Specific content generates clicks which causes more traffic. Until you provide everything about a particular model in exact detail, online visitors will drift until their exact considerations are met. For example, content must describe a Toyota Camry far beyond a “popular sedan” to the degree of a 2014.5 Toyota Camry LE Automatic, Sunroof with GPS. This…

    Do drivers in Asia prefer their supercars with less power and a more comfortable suspension set-up? McLaren clearly reckons that’s the case, because its new 625C has been created especially for the region. As the name implies, the 625C’s 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 engine produces 616 bhp (460 kW / 625 PS) rather than the 641 bhp (478 kW / 650 PS) enjoyed by the 650S. Incidentally, the final 12C also had the same lower output. Not that the horsepower deficit affects performance much. With optional Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres fitted, the 625C Coupé accelerates from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h) in…

The driver of this E46 BMW M3 thought that trying to keep up with a motorcycle would be a good test of their skills – on public roads no less. The BMW driver tries to hang with the motorcycle for some time through the twisting and winding roads, but doesn’t anticipate hitting traffic (why would they on a public road).

      Before studying the cooling system of the automobile engine, it is important to know how the heat is generated in the engine. As we look at the process of heat generation, the purpose, need and function of the cooling system is much easier to understand. The main source of heat in the engine is the combustion of the air-fuel mixture. There is also friction between the rotating and moving parts inside of the engine. Friction can be reduced or controlled by using a lubrication system,on the mechanical components, but the main source of heat is the heat produced in the combustion chamber.

    28 Aug 2014 | 5:45 pm
    I’m not a fan of working on carburettors. My biggest problem is with the fiddly little pieces, which I am pretty sure are designed to shoot out on disassembly and disappear into the ether. Amal carbs got it right though, long long ago. A flathead screwdriver and spanner, and the whole things comes apart quite easily. Can see why riders used to be more likely to do any carburettor work themselves. Remove two bolts and a fuel line, then you can take it off and strip it down. Simplicity itself, a ten minute job to pull it down and put it back together, with a minimum of moving parts that…

    Because we love the smell of two stroke and dust clouds. It’s the backwards lean that is so impressive. Favourite bike of the meet, a CX500 dirtbruiser. Couldn’t corner, but roostertailed like a mofo coming out of corners. Almost rubbin racin, which is even cooler because it’s on dirtbikes. Most of these bikes I would be scared to take on the road, let alone on dirt. Old school dirt trackers. Nothing like a bare metal tank to show how you’re more about go than show. Sweet little Bultaco tracker, it’s testament to the build quality that bikes like these still…

    Many times I have traversed the internet and stumbled across niche automotive groups that honour vehicles which would have otherwise disappeared into the ether of history. Fanatics of the most passionate kind, worshipping machines which back in their day were known to have faults. Today I have become one of those fanatics.  A sidevalve 250cc engine of around 1950 vintage, this beautiful piece of the puzzle is only the beginning of a long and frustrating time. And I have already started. Armed with my handy 50s motorcycle guide, I have all the knowledge of the period to help me with getting…

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…

In 2009, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced her wish to have one million electric cars on German roads by 2020, but it’s beginning to look like Merkel might have had her head in cloud cuckoo land with that one. In the words of Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, from the CAR Center for Automotive Research at Duisburg-Essen University: ‘(Merkel) might have just as easily said that we would have 100,000 cars driving on the moon by 2020’.

    It’s not often that golf and cars cross paths, with the exception of some terminology – ‘driver’ for example! However, in honour of the Ryder Cup we are taking a look at how cars and golf balls could be interlinked more closely. A recent study has found that manufacturing cars using dimpled material may improve fuel efficiency. Dimpled surfaces, like those found on golf balls, can dramatically increase the distance of travel because the drag caused by air resistance is cut in half thanks to the irregular surface. A dimpled surface holds the airflow closer for longer, reducing the…

  • Fuel Pump – Five Most Common Symptoms of Malfunction

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:53 pm
    A fuel pump is an essential component of a car engine as it delivers the liquid gasoline from the fuel tank to the engine. Mechanical fuel pumps were used earlier for cars with a carburettor- based fuel system; however, the present cars use a fuel injection system and require an electronic fuel pump which provides fuel at a much higher pressure. The purpose of the fuel pump is to pump fuel from the fuel tank to the engine and also to maintain correct pressure in the fuel line (low or high) depending on the requirement so that correct amount of fuel is delivered. The malfunctioning of the fuel…

    Penny-wise and pound-foolish? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. So many of us think first about saving money and last about whether or not what we’re buying (or not buying) is a good deal. That goes for something as small as a bottle of laundry detergent or as big as a new car.If your laundry comes clean with a bargain detergent, go for it. However, when it comes to buying that new or used car, give your choice a second thought if you’re thinking of cutting corners by eliminating safety features.As long as your next vehicle is brand new or is a used car built since ’98, air bags…

Last year’s build, for example, was a 1,000-hp Bisimoto Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

When our cars need servicing or repair, we have to trust that they are well cared for by the mechanics that we take them to. The trouble is, you will sometimes find that car mechanics do a poor job. Mediocre at best, if you will.What would restore your faith in car mechanics? You could service and maintain your car yourself, but there’s always a chance you might not have the right tools or parts for…

    This 2010 Honda Civic came to Conway Collision after it slid off the road during one of the many snowstorms that hit our region last winter. No one was hurt,  but the car’s  side, front and rear ends were severely damaged, as evidenced in these photos.

Surprisingly, it is also one of the most overlooked part, when it comes to car maintenance, as not many are aware of the specific type of engine oil the motor requires, neither do most understand the right viscosity and other aspects which the engine needs. It should be easy now, as Malaysia’s Petronas, one of the leading lubricants company in the world, has signed up with Maruti Suzuki (MSIL) as their Genuine Lubricant Partner for the supply of MGDO 5W40 for diesel vehicles. The Petronas Syntium…

    The Kawasaki Ninja 250 which was sold in India, has moved on to a more rounded cubic capacity number. However, if these spy pictures and the report from TMCblog is to be believed, the next Kawasaki Ninja 250 could well be a 4-cylinder machine. This mysterious, fully faired motorcycle in the pictures is supposedly the next Ninja 250 and surprisingly, the front borrows a lot of styling cues from the Ducati Panigale, just like the Yamaha R25. The windscreen appears to be a static unit, while the rear-view mirrors do look like they belong to the Kawasaki family. Click here for pictures of the…

    The Feds Why on earth would politicians in Washington know what’s best for truckers? If you ask the feds about why truckers have faced increased regulation and stricter limits on driving times, they’ll tell you it’s about safety—that more restrictive Hours of Service laws will reduce driver fatigue and crashes. Safety Is Everyone’s Concern Truckers understand the concern for safety, but politicians struggle to understand the perspective of truckers—that’s why federal regulators should leave truckers alone. Nobody wants trucking to be unsafe! Outsiders should trust that truckers…

Even so, it might not be a good idea for you to bring them along, no matter how much fun you both think it’s going to be. Lack of Movement Kids need to play and move around as much as possible.

Now, they’re back and causing panic in New York subways, Chicago skyscrapers, Cincinnati hotels and highway motels and trucker hostels across the U.S. and Canada. What Are Bed Bugs?

    Things Car Drivers Shouldn’t Do Sharing the road with car drivers is a necessary but frustrating evil of being a professional truck driver. Car drivers often seem to be clueless about the vast differences between zipping through traffic on four wheels and maneuvering a heavy-haul 18-wheeler down the highway. Here are a few of the things we wish car drivers wouldn’t do: Trucking Tips #1: Don’t cut in front of a truck without plenty of clearance. Heavy tractor trailers can’t stop on a dime. It takes a truck considerably more time and distance to slow down than a car. If you cut in…

    Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows two compatible devices to communicate with each other. In an automobile, it lets you operate a mobile phone “hands-free,” meaning you don’t have to hold the phone while making or taking a call or accessing the phone’s address book. While Bluetooth has become the auto-industry standard for hands-free phone technology, compatibility varies from phone to phone. To make matters worse, the interface and features vary from car  to car. In this article we review the basics of Bluetooth technology in automotive applications.

    Back in the early 1980s, Chrysler was the only one of the big three automakers that did not have a diesel engine in their model lineup.  In 1978, General Motors offered a 350 cu.in V8. in their Oldsmobile line.  Ford followed in the early eighties with an International Harvester 6.9L V8.  In 1982, Chrysler jumped in and sourced their first diesel from Mitsubishi. It was a 4.0 liter, in-line six diesel, which was thrifty and reliable, but at 105 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque, it was considered relatively underpowered. However, it proved popular enough that the company realized that needed a…

    The hammer went down for a final time and the auction is now officially over, and whilst the DVLA rightly congratulates itself on pulling in £4,022,047 after fees and tax at Twickenham this week, it is worth making a few serious points: Firstly, the number of lots sold exceeded 1,400 on the day – usually there are more unsold that get picked up later by the dealers. The excessive £30k hammer price for 26 O (after £26k, £22k and £20.5k for 22 O, 23 O and 24 O a few months ago) suggests that the buyer may have thought they were bidding for the iconic Ferrari-friendly 25 O, held back for…
