    After seeing some shocking footage on the news lately, we thought refreshing our minds regarding school bus safety laws might be a good idea. We share the road with school buses so often, that sometimes we forget just how dangerous a situation can become if we’re not being attentive. Everyday, nearly 1.5 children are transported to school in PA. Nationally, 19 school-aged children are killed each year in school bus related crashes. That being said, Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law is as follows: You must stop when you meet a school bus with red signal lights flashing and…

    Photos courtesy SIVAG. The long and slow collapse of the Bertone coachbuilding corporation appears as though it will come to an end this month as Lilli Bertone, the widow of company scion Nuccio Bertone, has put up for sale the last vestiges of the company, including dozens of concept cars and the rights to the Bertone name itself. After Nuccio Bertone’s death in 1997, the once Turin-based company – which included both a coachbuilding factory and a design firm – saw a variety of leaders, but ultimate control always rested with Lilli Bertone and her two daughters, Barbara and…

  • Report: The new Bugatti Chiron should sport over 1,480hp and cost 2.2 mil euros

    admin
    31 Aug 2015 | 3:30 pm
    CAR recently received the scoop on the next Bugatti Chiron which they say could have as much as 1,480hp and 1,106 lb-ft of twist. And that’s quite a lot more than the standard Veyron’s original rating of just 1,001hp. But that’s not all as the estimated power figures should enable the Chiron to get close to the 300 MPH, and we mean, real close, like 288 MPH as its projected top speed. That’s faster than the top speed of most single prop-engine Cessnas. According to the latest finding, the new Chiron is also estimated to cost around 2.2 million euros when it gets…

    A member on BMW 2-Series enthusiast site, 2Addicts, apparently heard through the grapevine through “insider sources” that a BMW M2 CSL is actually in the works, when the M2 itself hasn’t even been revealed. So what’s known about this possible M2 CSL? Well, given BMW’s history of making more track-focused versions of their M cars, like the original E46 M3 CSL, the M2’s version will basically be just that. The insider source said the M2 CSL will be for the Coupes only, so there’s a possibility for a standard M2 convertible, a Concept car is due…

    Again, this happened. An impending new model was revealed inadvertently through the showcasing of its miniature die-case form. Say hello to the all-new 2017 Volvo S90, and boy, does this get us excited for the new model. Volvo is currently on a quest to redesign its entire lineup, which first began with the 2016 Volvo XC90. Now, the S90 will follow to replace the aging S80 sedan as the Swedish automaker’s flagship. Designed with cues from the Volvo Estate Concept and the 2016 XC90 in mind, the new S90 looks to be one heck of a looker, with its raked and swept-back roofline, to its…

As previewed by the design renderings officially released by Hyundai themselves, the Elantra appears to be faithful to its new design direction. Clearly moving up market with a much more mature and sleek design, the new Elantra gives off the vibe and appearance of being a shrunken down Genesis sedan, and that’s not a bad thing at all.

The new S-class cabriolet symbolizes our passion for individual and timelessly exclusive mobility, which we share with our customers.” The statement’s attributed to Daimler board member Ola Källenius, but we imagine in it printed up in some ’60s-swank typeface in a dusty back issue of Sunset magazine.

In Volkswagen’s stomping grounds, it was once again sponsored by the German car company with two Beetles in the mix driven by Tanner Foust and Scott Speed. This year, the track was moved to the north side of the stadium, adopting part of the track left over from the ill-fated American Le Mans Series (ALMS) Cadillac Grand Prix in 2002.

What’s more, the .757 mile course – one of GRC’s longer, faster courses – was set up on Belle Isle, incorporating part of the Grand Prix track which IndyCars more commonly zoom around. The counterclockwise course wrapped around the fountain in four turns, with the Joker Lap a quick turn around the fountain’s north side…

    This year has seen a shift in how V8 Supercars goes about testing, with Monday earlier this week being our one and only private test day at our home circuit, Winton. The idea this year from the category, in the name of cost-saving, was to have slightly longer practice sessions at the race meetings, generally a total of two hours on the Friday, and less private test days –from two down ...

  • Triple Eight confident despite testing setback

    1 Sep 2015 | 5:28 pm
    The championship-winning squad hit Queensland Raceway for its crucial pre-Sandown 500 test yesterday, rolling out a brand new chassis for Jamie Whincup in the process. However, the test didn’t go to plan. A vibration issue left the new car stranded in the garage for the majority of the day, robbing the team of valuable track time ahead of the three long-distance races. “With a year ... Keep reading

  • 2015 BMW i3 – Road Test and Review

    Jonathan Spira
    31 Aug 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Although clearly a Bimmer, the BMW i3 isn’t only different from any BMW that’s come before but it’s also different from almost every car currently on the road. Its appearance is polarizing: “stubby,” “futuristic,” and “tall” were the comments we heard frequently while it was in our short-term fleet for close to two weeks. George Jetson, your car is ready! The BMW i3 with optional range extender is built on an aluminum chassis powered by an electric motor that is augmented by a two-cylinder gasoline-fueled engine that drives a generator. The car also introduces a new design…
  • Diesel Prices Down Around the Country As Holiday Weekend Approaches

    Jesse Sokolow
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:40 am
    Fuel prices in the United States continue to fall and the end is not in sight after the price of a barrel of oil briefly dipped below $40 last Friday, a six-year low. On average, drivers are spending 25% less at the pump this year versus last. The lower prices have spurred U.S. drivers to take to the road and oil refineries are struggling to keep up with the demand. The average price for a gallon of diesel fell $1.260 from a year ago to $2.561, a price that was $1.135 less than a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of…

    Lower Fuel Costs, More Traffic to Blame Traffic deaths in the United States are expected to hit their highest level since 2007, according to figures released by the National Safety Council. Using a review of the first six months of the year, the group said that traffic deaths were 14% higher than in the same period in 2014. Serious injuries were up 30%.

    Service managers needn’t wait for outside help to drill advisors on positivity, communication and other ‘soft’ skills. Have you had a less-than-great encounter with a dealership service advisor? Was that service representative rude? Did he come off as though he could care less about your needs, unwilling to serve, as though you were getting in the way of his routine? My wife and I recently had just such an experience, and it has stayed with me.

    Cookie the Dog's Owner
    28 Aug 2015 | 12:01 am
    One of the more surprising things at the Studebaker meet last Saturday was the microcar delegation. There were four King Midgets in attendance. They were down next to the Packards, which made for quite a study in contrasts. It didn't register with me until I was looking at the photos the next day, but the little fella between the King Midget Model III and the Packard in the photo above looks like a cyclekart. I'm kicking myself for not getting a better look or a good clear picture of it. In my defense, I missed the cyclekart in large part because I was fascinated by another display…

There was also a restored '55 sedan... ...and some very nicely restored examples of the 1956-58 flat-front body style,... ...and some of the "final generation" (1964-66) Lark derivatives.

The most exalted of the whole exaltation was this wickedly weaponized Wagonaire. I normally don't go for hot rod black, but the teal accents (and matching shoes) really set it off. The prime mover is suitably ferocious.  Not sure what the function of the beer can on the firewall is, though. Here's one more Lark to take note of, should you be looking for a project car.

    Up until now, all the Porsche's coming out from RWB found Nakai-san have always been based on classic, air-cooled Porsches. But what if he did something more modern? Something more aggressive. Something totally out of left field? What would about a RWB Cayman GT4? What would that look like? That's exactly the question that well known rendering aficionado Jon Sibal asked himself when he drew the rendering you see below. According to Jon's post on Instagram he created it for Nakai-San. What's unclear is if he was asked to do so or if he simply created it because he wanted to. Either way, I for…

    Photos courtesy SIVAG. The long and slow collapse of the Bertone coachbuilding corporation appears as though it will come to an end this month as Lilli Bertone, the widow of company scion Nuccio Bertone, has put up for sale the last vestiges of the company, including dozens of concept cars and the rights to the Bertone name itself. After Nuccio Bertone’s death in 1997, the once Turin-based company – which included both a coachbuilding factory and a design firm – saw a variety of leaders, but ultimate control always rested with Lilli Bertone and her two daughters, Barbara and…

  • Hemmings Find of the Day – 1969 Subaru 360 Van

    Kurt Ernst
    1 Sep 2015 | 6:00 am
    Early Subaru models remain largely a curiosity in the United States, as the brand didn’t really enjoy commercial success here until the late 1970s. That means you probably won’t see another 1969 Subaru 360 Van, like this example for sale on Hemmings.com, at the local show-and-shine or even an import-only cruise-in. With a 356cc two-stroke two-cylinder engine, rated at 25 horsepower, the 360 Van is best suited for light hauling in an urban setting, but it probably returns exceptional fuel economy around town. While not necessarily practical, it certainly will be attention-getting once the…

    Much of the civil unrest in suburban St. Louis over the last year has been linked to public frustration with onerous traffic enforcement coupled with court systems that operate more like debtors prisons than actual institutions of justice. In 2013, Ferguson, population 21,000, issued 33,000 arrest warrants for unpaid traffic tickets and other minor offenses. Thankfully, Missouri has enacted a new law that bans towns from jailing motorists who can’t pay their traffic fines and that caps the amount of revenue cities in St. Louis County can collect from traffic revenue.

    Renault has added a new model to its local Renault Sport line-up, with a reshuffle of its Megane RS range. In comes the new Megane RS 275 Cup Premium - replacing the outgoing 265 Cup Premium and bringing a longer list of standard equipment. As the name suggests, the 275 Premium bumps horsepower from the 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine from 265 to 275 HP (201kW, and 360Nm), and the new arrival scores a “raspy” (says Renault) lightweight Akrapovic exhaust system.

  • Potter & Rich Recon MC8 is an Aggro Audi R8

    1 Sep 2015 | 2:58 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The first generation Audi R8 might be old news, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting. This is particularly true of the R8 V10, which is the model a London outfit by the name of Potter & Rich started out with before creating – along with some highly respected names in the tuning world – the wild and eye-catching ride you see here (Yes, we’re still talking about the car, you horndogs…). Officially christened the Potter & Rich Recon MC8, this amazeballs Audi is instantly distinguishable by its complete carbon fiber body kit cribbed…

The Italian company offers a host of different speaker families, each with different models for various applications, locations and other factors. One such family of products is the Venere, which is welcoming a new, stylish member to the brood.

  • Dähler BMW M235i Cabrio is an M2 Preview

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:22 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The BMW M235i is a damn fine compact premium sport coupe (or convertible, if you’re the sun-worshipping sort), but it is not, as its multiple-numeral name suggests, an actual M Car. No, BMW is instead saving the M2 designation for a more hard-edged, hyperactive version of the F22 platform that we hear will be making its debut either at Frankfurt next month or here in L.A. come November. What sorts of numbers can we expect that car to put up? A Swiss tuner called Dähler has a few ideas… Dähler (which concentrates on BMWs but also offers parts and…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life It’s said that three of the most important words in the world of real estate are location, location and location. But who wants to live on a white, sandy beach fronting clear blue water if the actual house is a 40 square-foot paper-mache shack? Thankfully, there’s a house for sale that, in addition to being situated on a beautiful plot of land in Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia, is big, luxurious and, oh yeah, different. How “different” are we talking about? Just look at the darn thing! This remarkable house (which is called Alkira) is part…
  • Kawasaki W650 Superrench by Angry Lane is a Speedway Stunner

    26 Aug 2015 | 8:44 pm
    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life One of the most popular motorcycle customizing motifs these days seems to be the flat-track speedway racer. You know what we’re talking about, right? Low slung bikes bereft of bodywork and fitted with racing number plates on the front and sides, mixing it up on dirt ovals up to one mile in circumference? Yes, those. It turns out interest in the speedway aesthetic has made it all the way to Hong Kong, where a shop called Angry Lane built the custom Kawasaki you see here. It’s called Superrench, and it’s based on a 2000 Kawasaki W650. But instead of…

    I’m just going to come straight out and say it: there has always been a certain ‘way of things’ when it comes to modifying an older rotary in New Zealand. It’s not necessarily a negative either, but simply the manifestation of our nation’s taste for personalising Mazda’s offerings of the 1970s and ’80s. The way the rotary scene has shaped […] The post The 616 Step Success Plan appeared first on Speedhunters.

    As the Formula 1 season continues with this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, in about a month is one of my favorite grand prix's and tracks of the series, Spa-Francorchamps or, more specifically, the Belgian Grand Prix. Originally designed in 1920, Spa-Francorchamps saw its first race in 1922 and first grand prix in 1925. Racing fans have seen the track revised several times, the most recent in 2007. Located in the predominantly French-speaking southern region of Belgium, Wallonia is home to Spa. The area is known as the Walloon Region, which is home to a third of the Belgian population but…

    With the American market in mind and an exciting sports sedan as their goal, Alfa Romeo unleashed their engineers to create an all-new four-door, the Giulia. Behind the signature Alfa grill is a high performance gasoline-powered turbo V6. It’s been a little confusing as the rumors about this engine either being sourced from Ferrari or benefiting from similar tuning. Alfa Romeo clarified things today when in their release they explain the engine was, “…tuned by engineers from a Ferrari background.” I’m not sure this helped to clear the confusion but no matter.

The strike authorizations came with overwhelming support – in both cases 97 percent of the unionized members of the two US automakers gave a positive feedback to the idea of using a strike as a means of negotiation if needed. The strike votes are simply procedural measures taken by the union members at all three carmakers and won’t force such an action if it isn’t…

    Although the crop of new vehicles released in recent years comes pre-equipped with safety and comfort features that looked futuristic just a decade ago, these additions have made people crankier as they come with quality issues and increased pricing. According to the latest edition of the American Customer Satisfaction Index, last year’s overall car buyer satisfaction slid 3.7 percent for the third straight year – now at 79 out of a maximum total of 100. Naturally, the decrease was expected, given that last year the automotive industry called back through safety campaigns a record tally…

    Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors have been building cars in this country for over 100 years. During that time they have produced vehicles deserving of tremendous praise as well as vehicles that are better off forgotten. Consumer Reports, the American magazine that reviews everything from cars to stereo equipment, has been doing its thing since 1936. In all that time, never has an American automaker produced a vehicle CR found to be perfect. Tesla, the American maker of electric cars, sold its first Model S in 2012.

As we sat near the water and discussed life, we discovered a common love: cars.

    Once upon a time automotive transmissions were simple things. Three-on-the-tree was a popular manual transmission mounted on the steering wheel through the early ‘70s. Automatic transmissions hit their stride in the ‘50s and have become ubiquitous to the point that they can be found in more than 90 percent of vehicles in America. That helps explain, in part, why manufacturers offer such a variety of automatic transmissions. Also driving their development has been a need for greater fuel economy as automakers struggle to hit a corporate average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon by…

But after seeing photos of the C6 with the grafted C7 headlights, I am totally sold on this mod.

  • 3 Best Caravan Towing Cars of 2015

    If you own a caravan there are a lot of things to consider when purchasing your next car. So how do you go about picking your touring tow car? The first thing to consider is what you want from a car when it won’t be towing your caravan. Will it be used for quick trips to the shops and the school run? A 4×4 is great for loading up with kids and shopping but it is not an economical day-to-day car. Do you want something easy to park or do you want something that can effortlessly tow heavy loads? Always make sure that you have a good estimate of what you caravan weighs, not empty but when…

    The redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot was developed without any prototype models. The innovative computer-driven manufacturing process saved the company several months of time and millions of dollars. As Jeff Tomko, president of Honda Manufacturing Alabama, puts it, the car was created “in a virtual world”. What does this mean? The development processes included a lot of computer simulation work and 3D printing. For instance, engineers printed a transparent panel that helped to route wires through the dashboard. This makes a great difference because to build a typical test model, the company…

The photo is blurry and low resolution, and the car is heavily camouflaged, so not much can be seen. You may notice sharp headlights, as well as the iconic horseshoe grille. However, that is just a prototype so the design may well be changed. The picture was shot at an airport in Los Angeles. Judging from this, one can suggest that the car was heading to Pebble Beach.

Although this sum is a record, it looks quite realistic if you take into consideration we are talking about a 1992 Ferrari F40 in a mint condition. There are several more reasons for this price in addition to especially good condition of the car. The total number of F40s ever made is just 1,311, and that is the last model signed personally by Enzo Ferrari. Also, it is one of the last privately owned F40 in the world.

    31 Aug 2015 | 11:00 am
    During the brass era of automobiles, from about 1900 to 1915, pretty much every car was a luxury car. Before Ford’s 1908 Ford Model T put the nation on wheels starting in 1907, automobiles were primarily seen as playthings for wealthy folks. Even Fiat, who’s known these days for more pedestrian economy cars and family vehicles, started out as a luxury manufacturer.Fiat is one of the pioneers of the automotive age. The company built its first car in 1889. In addition to its forays into racing, Fiat was known for its luxury cars, and was one of the top importers of chassis into the…

When Toyota released the Prius, it quickly became known as the face of hybrid vehicles. With competition becoming fiercer each year, Toyota needs to keep improving the Prius to keep it in the No. 1 slot in the hybrid market in its next generation.Rumors suggest that the next-generation Prius will take its market dominance to a whole new level.

  • Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Cabriolet

    31 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    Best in Show at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this year was awarded to a 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A owned by the Patterson Collection of Louisville, KY. The exotic-sounding Italian name should make it clear that this is a serious chunk of automobile, but not everyone knows just how serious. Though the name hasn’t matched the staying power of its peers, Isotta Fraschini was, back in the Roaring Twenties, the car one chose when a Duesenberg wasn’t ostentatious or extreme enough. Yeah, this car is that serious.Back when the Duesenberg Model J was a high-level…
  • Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet

    31 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    As one of the biggest automakers in the world, Volkswagen’s got a lot on its plate, so much so that I can understand if some of its models don’t get nearly the same amount of attention as the others. But what’s happening with the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet is a real head-scratcher even by VW’s standards.Volkswagen released the seventh-generation 2013 Volkswagen Golf Mk. VII in 2012. Since that time, the model has given birth to a handful of variants, including the 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen, the 2017 Volkswagon Golf Alltrack, and the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf, to name a few.

  • '04 Overland 4.7 v8 - Overheat - hydraulic fan?

    DarthMorgan73
    1 Sep 2015 | 6:35 pm
    I have a 2004 Overland 4.7 v8 with 135k. Overheating despite new radiator, water pump, t-stat, radiator cap and temp sensor. No signs of head gasket issue (no white smoke from exhaust pipe, no loss of coolant, no sign of combustion gas in reservoir tank). I've read some articles referencing the hydraulic fan, and the hydraulic fan solenoid. The fan does spin under normal temp, and does pick up speed once it goes over 210, but I wonder if it is not doing enough. Has anyone resolved their cooling issue by replacing the solenoid?

    Curious if anyone has ever experimented with dip on SRT reps. I've always played around with dip but never on my jeep. I'm sure it'll help protect the wheels from a salty winter. I guess i'm asking for advice or pictures. ALSO what color? Black would be the same as i have now, but i was thinking a cool color like white or like a silverish would look different. Any input at all is welcome :D

    In the early years of your adult life, debt can add up quickly.

  • 2016 Toyota Prius teased as company’s hybrid sales pass eight million

    Mike Stevens
    1 Sep 2015 | 7:27 pm
    It may already have been revealed this week through a pair of cheeky spy shots snapped aboard a cargo plane, but you can’t stop the teaser train: here’s the first official look at the new 2016 Toyota Prius hybrid. Those earlier shots, snapped aboard a cargo plane bound for the Frankfurt motor show where the new Prius will debut, offered a clear look at both ends, revealing much of the fourth-generation hybrid’s sportier styling. Today’s teaser image hints at the hatch’s tall LED tail lamps, which begin deep into the rear bumper and hook up into the rear quarter panels as they extend…
  • 2016 Audi S4 sedan spied without camouflage, Frankfurt debut expected

    Mike Stevens
    1 Sep 2015 | 6:29 pm
    The extra-hot 2016 Audi S4 has been spied in sedan form once again, this time without a single shred of camouflage. Although the example shown here is getting around with lower-specification wheels and no badges, the quad exhaust pipe leave little doubt as to its identity. It remains to be seen if the grille and front bumper shown in these new spy photos will be swapped for darkened and more aggressive examples for the S4 model, although the mesh-covered intakes in the lower corners appear to be the final product. The new 2016 Audi A4 made its online debut in June, shown in a range of…
  • 2015 Renault Megane RS275 Cup Premium hits Australia from $52,990

    Mike Stevens
    1 Sep 2015 | 5:33 pm
    Renault Australia has introduced the 2015 Megane RS275 Cup Premium, entering above the continuing RS265 Cup as the new top model in the French carmaker’s popular hot hatch line. Priced from $52,990 plus on-road costs, the RS275 Cup Premium replaces the $47,990 RS265 Cup Premium that launched in Australia in June last year. The change means there is now a $9000 jump between the two series production Megane RS models. As its name suggests, the RS275 (275hp) is more powerful than the RS265 (265hp) it replaces – which, in modern metric terms, represents a boost from 195kW to 201kW at…
  • 2016 Ford Focus Review

    Tim Beissmann
    1 Sep 2015 | 4:38 pm
    The Ford Focus may be one of the world’s best selling cars, but the Blue Oval brand insists topping local sales charts isn’t a priority for its overhauled small car. Proving this, the 2016 Ford Focus ‘LZ’ range drops the entry-level Ambiente specification, which had a circa-$20K starting price that appealed primarily to fleet managers and put it head-to-head with rental car specials such as the Toyota Corolla Ascent and Hyundai i30 Active. The decision to distance the Focus from the base model sales battle is the latest move in Ford Australia’s company-wide philosophy of…
  • Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 limited edition hypercar will debut in 2016 – report

    Derek Fung
    1 Sep 2015 | 3:09 pm
    The Italian supercar brand’s next limited-edition hypercar will allegedly be badged as the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4. According to TF1, Lamborghini’s upcoming small production run model will be known as a Centenario LP770-4, instead of the widely rumoured name of Hyperveloce. Instead of its regular policy of naming its cars after famous Spanish fighting bulls, the Centenario, if the car is indeed badged as that, is said to honour the centenary of the birth of the company’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini. Born on April 28, 1916, Lamborghini founded his eponymous sports…

If you’ve read my reviews of either the 2015 Kia Soul ConnectPlus 1.6 CRDi (long-term) or the first-generation Soul Quantum, you’ll know that I really like this particular Kia and its turbo-diesel engine. With hybrid and electric cars starting to become popular quickly, Kia introduces its first full-production all-electric car, ignoring the hybrid route altogether, and naming it the Soul EV. Surprisingly, Kia states that they’ve been ‘engaged in EV for 30 years’, and as a test-bed in 2011 the company decided to build 2,500 electric versions of the…

While the high-spec Quantum’s LED running lights, neat alloy wheels, blacked-out rear glass and gunmetal paint have kept that particular car still looking fairly modern, some of the range now look distinctly outmoded. The arrival of the second-generation Kia Soul in 2013 sees it benefit from completely fresh styling all-round, a 20mm longer wheelbase, a 15mm wider body, and the…

This is a tough segment with heavy competition from big manufacturers, but as this is a Lexus it’s aimed directly at the luxury end of the market, narrowing the field of rivals. Importantly, the modern NX will attract a younger slice of the market too, as aside from the CT the rest of the cars in Lexus’s range naturally appeal to a market of a what Lexus describe as a ‘younger, style-conscious [and] typically urban, active customer base.’ We were…

    It’s usually a good idea to send your car for a service and a tune-up every 30,000 miles – or every two years – in order to keep it in optimum running condition. Fortunately, most of the work done during a service can actually be carried out at home by anyone who’s confident with taking the DIY approach.  As a result, we’ve decided to go through some of the major tasks on our blog. TWO THINGS THAT ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Always wear safety glasses when carrying out work on your vehicle, and also look at obtaining latex gloves and closed toe shoes for…
  • Ford launches car that can see around corners

    Editor
    7 Jul 2015 | 3:42 am
    Major motoring manufacturer Ford is to introduce a camera designed to help motorists see around corners when their view is being obstructed. The Front Split View Camera will be available as a £400 option on both the all-new Ford Galaxy as well as the S-MAX.  It will display a 180-degree view from the front of the car, with the camera itself being installed in the grille.  The camera will allow drivers to easily spot approaching vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists. Eight cyclists have been killed in London this year alone, with the Department for Transport (DfT) reporting that a…
  • Chinese smog levels force government action on polluting vehicles

    Editor
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:09 am
    China has been cracking down on high-emission transport in an effort to lower the huge amount of smog evident in its major cities. Subsequently, a vast number of scrapyards and recycling sites now contain thousands of completely abandoned buses, cars and trucks.  None of the vehicles in the scrapyards were able to meet even the most lenient of emissions standards. Reports of Beijing having over 20 times the amount of air pollution considered healthy by the World Health Organisation led to the initiative: it’s believed that vehicle emissions accounted for almost a third (31.1 per…

    Ron Rodney
    19 Aug 2015 | 3:55 pm
    There's an easy way to remember when your road tax is due This is just a quick post, not for you because I know you know this already. This is for your friends or family who may not be as smart as you. I read an article recently that said people are forgetting to renew their road tax and more people are being fined. They're saying it's happening because people no longer see the tax disc on their windscreen so they don't know when the road tax runs out. Whether that's true or not here's a simple way to make sure your friends and family don't get caught out. All you have to tell them is to go…

    This Halfords story is one of the many reasons to choose one of the quality garages we recommend. The independent garages we recommend truly care about the cars they work on. And if you think this story is an isolated case, in April 2015 a Halfords mechanic was caught speeding in a customers car via the dashboard camera in the car and in 2013 Halfords got fined over £19,000 for missing repairs. Here's the latest story that first appeared in the Bristol Post. A car service sting by trading standards found "multiple failings" at a Halfords Autocentre site and led to fines and costs totalling…

    One of the many signs on the dashboard of my Volvo is flickering on and off at the moment, but I probably don’t need to worry about it. This is because I do know the real meaning (rather than the silly meanings ) of my dashboard lights and the thing that’s showing is the one for the windscreen wiper fluid. It’s only showing when I go up or down slopes, suggesting that the liquid is slopping up and down, leaving the sensor high and dry momentarily. Of course, no light on your dashboard should be ignored indefinitely and all the fluids need to be kept topped up. The last thing I want is…

But, there’s also a vast amount of slicker and more beautiful rides that you can easily bring over stateside. The car has to be older than 25 years. If the classic automobile you’ve been eyeing on was originally manufactured more than 25 years ago, then you’re lucky. This is the first box you’ll be checking off on the standard importation form.

Although the company had some success, including the sporty V-12 Hydrogen 7 concept vehicle in 2006, the problem with storing hydrogen for long periods of time coupled with other inefficiencies made BMW take a different approach. The German automaker is now working on a hydrogen fuel cell alternative that resembles the new hybrid i8. By using hydrogen to power an electric…

Debuted at the Geneva Auto Show, the concept car is an exercise in design and efficiency that utilizes lightweight engineering to go with a super luxury interior and technologically advanced user interface. In the vein of the new i3 and i8, the concept car is made mostly of composite material to reduce the weight and add miles per gallon.

  • Seat updates the Ibiza Cupra for 2016

    1 Sep 2015 | 3:49 pm
    While the 2016 Ibiza Cupra looks virtually identical to its predecessor, there have been some major changes. They start beneath the bonnet, where a 1.8 litre turbocharged petrol engine replaces the old 1.4 litre unit. So what’s the effect of that extra displacement? Well, power is increased from 176 bhp (132 kW / 180 PS) to 189 bhp (141 kW / 192 PS). Arguably more important for mid-range pace is peak torque, which is up by 70 Nm (51 lb/ft) to 320 Nm (236 lb/ft) - a huge 28% rise. The usual performance benchmarks aren’t much improved, though. The 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint time drops from…

    31 Aug 2015 | 10:49 am
    Kia has released some external shots of the all-new Sportage, which is due to be unveiled at September’s Frankfurt International Motor Show. Compared to the outgoing model, its styling represents a gentle evolution. The side view seems almost identical, for example, even though the wheelbase is slightly longer than before. A revised frontal aspect is the most obvious change. There’s a bolder ‘tiger-nose’ grille, plus the headlights have been moved higher and they now effectively flank the bonnet. The rear end meanwhile gains slimmer light clusters that are joined by a narrow chrome…

    Watch out. The new Ford GT is going to be making its return to the 24 hours of Le Mans next year and while the car’s development is still in the early stages, it’s got us all sorts of excited. The new Ford GT GTE/GTLM was caught testing at Sebring in late August and while the car looks amazing with its black bodywork, spoilers, and design, it sounds like an absolute monster. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 engine emits a devilishly sinister note with lots of grunting and popping coupled with turbos whistling and a gearbox whining.

    Are you thinking about buying a BMW but aren’t sure which to get? Don’t rule out these underrated vehicles. BMW 228i Not many people consider buying the 228i, but I think it’s easily one of the best BMW models we’ve seen in the last 20 years or so. It’s a surprisingly nimble and attentive drive. It’s much more graceful and elegant than most BMW cars. This might be part of the reason why a lot of people didn’t buy the car. But they made a big mistake by rejecting the 228i. Luckily, they can now be found at great prices. So, don’t listen to all the negative press the car gets.

    You might not think it but the likelihood of a diesel owner putting petrol in their car is high! One reason for that is because the filling station nozzle for petrol is narrower than a diesel one. That means it’s easy to insert a petrol nozzle into a diesel filler neck, but not vice-versa. Still, that’s little comfort to you if you’ve gone and filled up with petrol in your diesel vehicle! By now, you are perhaps wondering what you should do next.

  • Changing a Brake Calliper

    Justin Smith
    7 Aug 2015 | 3:10 am
    Brake callipers are the assemblies on your wheel that apply pressure to the disc rotor. Due to the high levels of heat and friction created in the arrangement these parts are especially prone to fatigue and wear. Your owner’s manual should provide you with a service window that tells you when these parts should be approaching the end of their lifespan and will need checking and replacing. Fortunately changing your brake callipers is a fairly simple task that can be completed by someone with a modicum of mechanical knowledge. It is very important that you give yourself the right amount of…
  • How to Replace a Car’s Rear Bumper

    Justin Smith
    23 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    One of the biggest dangers when driving is other road users. When you’ve stopped at a junction no-one wants to hear that crunching sound that indicates a good rear-ending from the vehicle behind. At low speeds your rear bumper can absorb the shock and strain of a collision, but often it will take tremendous damage in the impact. In such cases you can quickly and easily buy a spare rear bumper and replace yourself with very little mechanical knowledge. This is a relatively easy job and one that can be performed with only the most basic of mechanical knowledge. To complete the task at hand…

Your front bumper is the part of the car that will deflect most bumps and bangs on the road, saving you a fortune at the panel beaters. However, over time the wear and tear on this part can cause it to fail and need replacing. This is one of the less complex mechanical jobs that you can perform on your car, and it can be attempted by even those with the most basic of technical knowledge.

They are slightly curved in shape, looks similar to metal bow from an archery set, without the string.   They are available in different varieties.

I've seen way too many.  The other, and sometimes more difficult method is to remove parts that were originally there.  Not only does it make the vehicle look more seamless it also separates it from all the others.

Any good metal worker will tell you that you need to match the hammer and dolly as close as possible with the shape of your panel you're working on. When you're working on a curvy car like something from the late 1930's through the 1950's you will be hard pressed to find a flat panel on the vehicle. This means that you will need to use tools to match. Back in those days the selection of specialty hammers were vast, some being specifically used for one…

When you first hear that tree limb hit your vehicle, instinct might tell you to remove it and check out the damage yourself. However, that is not a good idea. The damage is done, and you could hurt yourself or cause more damage by trying to pull down the limb.

  • Driver’s Ed: Driving in a School Zone

    Emmett Young
    27 Aug 2015 | 5:08 am
    So it’s been quite a while since you stepped foot in a Driver’s Ed class. Aside from the more obvious road rules, it’s easy to forget specifics about traffic laws. With many schools beginning class this week, we want to make sure you know all the traffic laws relating to school zones and driving around a school bus. Just remember that each day 1.5 million school kids are transported on PA roads, so it’s important to follow the laws and keep children safe. PA School Bus Stopping Laws According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, all drivers must take…
  • Millennials More Likely to Lease Cars

    Emmett Young
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:55 am
    According to a study by Edmunds.com, millennials are the American generation most likely to lease a vehicle rather than buy. In the entire industry, leasing accounts for an average of 26.7% of new car purchases each year. When it came to millennials, leasing accounted for 29% of new car purchases, a 46% increase for this age group over the last five years. Leasing gives millennials, and other generations, the opportunity to drive a luxury car while sticking to a stricter budget. Rather than focusing on long-term financial benefit, many are accepting that funds will be limited for some time…

    Summer is a popular time for parents to teach their teens the laws of the road. Teaching your child to drive certainly isn’t easy, and the distraction of cell phones, ipods, and friends doesn’t make things much easier. How can you be sure your son or daughter fully understands the dangers of distracted driving? And how can you be sure they’ll follow the rules when you’re not around? Before we get into some helpful tips, we want you to know that your worries are not unfounded. Realistically, mobile devices are a huge distraction for teen drivers, and the fact that using…

    Searching for new ways to create vehicles which will please the tastes of Asian buyers, P.T. Honda Prospect Motor from Indonesia created a fairly remarkable small crossover with seven seats. Remember, we are talking about Asia now, so a seven seater there actually isn’t a huge slab of sheet metal on wheels. It is rather a compact, refined and over engineered piece of small real estate which can provide comfort for four (barely), but if you really want to train for the Guinness book of world records for the car with most people in, than fitting more than five there would be a great start.

It is well engineered, nicely weighted, very well equipped and fabulously refined. However, some think it should be even faster and even more intense than it is.

    It seems the newly revamped Corvette Stingray can’t seem to catch a break. Or a Viper. Hell, it’s so slow it can’t even catch a cold. Lining up in this short flick is a Challenger SRT Hellcat and a Z06 Corvette Stingray. The vid is a bit long, and you’ll get the idea of what happens repeatedly after the first few races. The Corvette Stingray matches up on the street with a Hellcat Challenger and they complete several passes. All of them are a rolling start. The races are at night, and the chase car has a Hellcat badge on it as well. It’s probably the only…

Those harmless chips can cause the entire glass to shatter all over you and instead of protecting; it could end up harming you. Even a tiny glass piece lodged into your eye during the shattering could make you blind. Less dramatically, even a crack outside your field of vision can refract the light, causing a glare thus, making driving a harrowing experience for you. Do not sweat over emptying your wallet yet!

  • What to Expect from the 2015 Hyundai Tucson

    Usman Sheikh

    Medium SUVs haven’t always had an easy ride. Sometimes they try to appeal to everyone but end up appealing to nobody. So, what can we expect from the 2015 Hyundai Tucson? Practical Interiors As always, Hyundai gets the interiors just right. They’re not fancy or overblown; they’re just right. Practicality is the key focus for Hyundai, and that’s not a bad thing. The seats are comfortable, and the leg and headroom are more than adequate. You can easily fit five very tall people in the car and still have plenty of room left over. That’s how much space the Tucson gives you. Loading and…

They come out from time to time, and Lambo unveiled the latest at the Quail motor show, one of the many swanky events that surround the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance. It’s got a name only Lamborghini could come up with: the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster. That’s more than a mouthful, but it tells you everything you need to know, so let’s break it down.

  • Australia’s incredible Solar panel-powered EVX Immortus

    An Australian startup named EVX is looking to end range anxiety once and for all by developing a science fiction-esque electric coupe called Immortus that’s fitted with 75 square-feet’s worth of solar panels on the roof, the trunk lid, and the hood. The solar panels generate enough electricity to continuously keep the battery pack topped-up if the driver holds a steady speed of approximately 40 mph. Of course, infinite range only works if the sun is out, meaning Seattle residents, Scottish nationals, and those who live in an area where the word “monsoon” is often heard…

    If you’re looking to buy an SUV in the near future, you should consider these 6 cars. Nissan Juke Some people think that driving an SUV can’t be fun, but the Nissan Juke proves those people wrong. It’s a fast, nifty car that’s great fun to drive. It’s light and easy to drive as well, so you’ll feel in complete control of the car when you’re behind the wheel. You can find these cars at Autoworld, so take them for a test drive to see what I mean. And that’s not something you can say about most big SUVs.

    Since Mini’s phenomenal relaunch in 2001, we’ve seen countless new models hit the market. In fact, the Mini range is one of the most bloated motor ranges on the market. Not that that’s a bad thing. Mini have brought us some of the most exciting small cars on the planet. Not least the Mini Cooper S and the long-awaited five-door Mini last year. At the end of 2014, the company took a long, hard look at the range and decided to slim it down. They cut the unnecessary models, and made the others better. In the last month, they’ve announced new designs for 2016. It’s safe to say that the…

  • SEPTEMBER 2015: ’73 VW THING—THE TOUGH GUY SIBLING OF THE VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

    admin
    31 Aug 2015 | 8:53 pm
      The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most beloved cars ever built thanks to a humble, reliable image and cutting edge cute car status.   They were bulletproof little cars but they weren’t like Jeeps because Jeeps looked harmless and tough at the same time.   The Volkswagen Thing was the answer.   Things were the offspring of a search for a military vehicle that would perform a Jeep-like function in Europe. Technically they were the VW Type 181 and they bore some resemblance to the WW II Kubelwagen.     Things didn’t set the world on fire for sales but they…
  • SEPTEMBER 2015: ’71 PONTIAC GTO CONVERTIBLE—CAN YOU HOUSEBREAK A GOAT?

    admin
    31 Aug 2015 | 8:52 pm
      The Pontiac GTO is largely recognized as the car that started the affordable muscle car era.   The concept was pretty simple—take a low-end, lightweight Tempest, stuff a 389 under the hood and keep the price so low a high school kid with a part time job at a grocery store could swing the payments.   Pontiac never said anything about gentle manners.   Alan Hilgartner is a huge GTO fan and he’s the proud owner of this ’71 GTO convertible. Alan’s story is like many other car guys because it begins and ends with the same sentence: “I used to own one”.   Alan…

    Rick Staigh met his future bride Sheron in a car guy version of romance. Sheron was underneath a 1953 Pontiac installing a lower radiator hose when Rick first laid eyes on her. Actually, Rick first spotted Sheron’s pink slippers sticking out from under the car while she worked on it and was curious about their owner who was clearly a car girl.     Every red-blooded car guy in the world would envy that moment because Rick was about to meet the ideal woman wearing those pink slippers: a girl who knew how to work on cars. He used even better judgment and married Sheron before some…
  • SEPTEMBER 2015: ’64 DODGE MAX WEDGE—CAN YOU LIVE WITH THE MILEAGE CONSEQUENCES OF A SCARY MOPAR?

    admin
    31 Aug 2015 | 8:51 pm
      Max Wedge is a name that struck fear in the hearts of anyone who went up against one at the track. The legendary Ram Chargers began a campaign of havoc on the ¼ mile with the 413 Max Wedge and it evolved into the 426 Max Wedge in ’63 when Chevy and Ford upped the ante. They were scary Mopars built for the track so what’s it like to drive one on the street?     Vern Landals is the kind of guy who will ask a question like that and actually provide the answer—so he built one. Vern is a builder with a lot of talent and ambition plus he leans heavily toward classic Mopar…

The gold (that elusive project) was found in the back 40 acres or under a partially collapsed shed so you had to find that nugget under a lot of gravel. Old iron has spiked in value because the value of the metal itself has climbed and that spike has dried up a supply of projects and/or parts cars because these old cars and trucks are worth more as a cube of metal.

    Last week we told you a few things about the 2016 Toyota Prius that we learned from spy shots we weren’t able to share with you. Now we have actual photos of two cars nestled in the belly of a cargo airplane. It is unlikely Toyota expects to ship all its new cars to the States this way! The company plans the first public showing of the redesigned car in Las Vegas on September 8, Perhaps these two cars are destined for that event?

    Ever since the Tesla Roadster departed showrooms, a handful of startups have tried to fill a similar two-seat electric cars car niche. The latest is a company from Japan called Green Lord Motors (GLM), which recently raised 1.7 billion yen ($14 million) to develop its sports car and explore other models.

  • Atlanta launches electric car fleet program

    1 Sep 2015 | 4:15 am
    Advocates are making a big push to put electric cars in the driveways of more U.S. citizens, but privately-owned passenger vehicles aren’t the only ones on the road. Government agencies operate large fleets of vehicles, which could potentially be electrified as well. Atlanta is about to take a big step in that direction. The City Council recently approved legislation that will give Atlanta one of the largest municipal fleets of electric vehicles in the U.S. by the end of this year, officials say. The fleet program dovetails with Atlanta’s “Power to Change Plan,” which…

    In 2010, Nissan introduced the LEAF to the marketplace, followed closely by the first generation Chevy Volt. If you were an electric car advocate back then, the future looked bright indeed. What does the electric car market look like today? 5 years later, electric cars represent less than 1% of total US sales (and that includes plug-in hybrids). Nissan and Chevrolet are getting ready to roll out second generation versions of the LEAF and the Volt. Other than that, it is same old, same old – a flock of low end “compliance cars” for the tree huggers on the Left Coast and a…
  • Lower gas prices mean higher US carbon emissions

    Steve Hanley
    1 Sep 2015 | 4:09 am
    Lower gas prices are encouraging Americans to drive more, which leads to higher emissions from automobiles. That’s a reversal of the trend toward driving few miles and spewing less carbon dioxide out of the nation’s tailpipes that began 7 years ago. In 2007, Americans started driving less, buying less gasoline, and putting less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. According to Inside Climate News, gasoline usage hit a peak that year and then shrank as much as 18 percent nationwide, hitting a low of 8 million barrels a day in January 2012. This reflected the enactment of landmark…

    Joseph Cargil
    25 Aug 2015 | 1:00 am
    Long Haul Truckers Truckers certainly enjoy “free agency,” as ATA economist Bob Costello calls it. Signing bonuses and competitive rates per mile spur many truckers to jump from one employer to another frequently. Early in 2015, however, we saw the lowest turnover rate since 2009. First quarter job numbers showed an 84% turnover rate according to the Wall Street Journal. In the last quarter of 2014, that number was 96%. The rate had been over 90% for several years. We’ll have to see if the trend continues and more drivers choose to stay with their current employer. Should I Stay or…

    You know those cars you see around that have mismatched colours due to an accident and a lack of the right coloured panels available at the time? Well once upon a time Volkswagen thought this effect might be a great idea to produce from factory and hence forth the Polo Harlequin was born… If multi-billionaires the Wiggles designed a car (other than their iconic Big Red Car of course) the Polo Harlequin would be it! Yes back in 1996 (and thankfully only being an idea that lasted during 1996) there were four different coloured versions of the Volkswagen Polo and then a fifth version that…

    The Ferrari 488 GTB goes on sale here in Australia in December 2015….but (and it’s a Sir Mix-A-Lot sized but here) if you pay for one in December, you’re still going to have to wait a couple more years before it actually is able to be parked outside of your mansion and bragged about to your cashed up friends. Finding that wait a touch on the long side, baulking at the mortgage level cost of $470k AUS and keeping the focus on the fun that is a used car, we’ve decided instead to find a few more bargain Ferrari’s more in line with average (not much) earnings.

    Back in 1988 a designer had a dream – a car where both the driver and passenger were separated by a wall and could only talk to each other electronically. Just like most smartphone owners behave today while in a cafe, while Instagramming lunch. After countless huffs of paint cans coupled with endless re-runs of the TV show Beyond: 2000, the Italdesign Aztec was born! I only became aware of the wonderment and absolute insanity of the possibly inspired by Back to the Future Italdesign Aztec through The Iron Chef Imports facebook page – someone in Japan has put one up for sale and it…

A long time ago when I couldn’t tell a rotary from a rotisserie, I enjoyed the adventurous tales of people with too much money and occasionally zero taste in Hot 4’s magazine. Of course not everyone could afford to restitch everything inside their rides with purple cow hide nor drown their car in fresh candy apple red paint and so the readers rides section was probably born. You could submit your ride and with everything crossed, hopefully be able to one day claim your pride and joy had…

    Share this Post Kia presented the first official photos of the new Sportage’s progressive and attractive exterior from every angle. The ‘face’ is perhaps the part that went through the biggest change on the upgraded model. Its headlamps are no longer integrated with the grille; instead, they sweep back along the outer edges of the more sharply-detailed bonnet and bolder wheel arches. The Sportage’s lower, wider ‘tiger-nose’ grille, immediately shouts out Kia’s design identity and contributes to a more imposing appearance. The smooth and slim…

    Google’s dictionary defines “familiarity” as “the quality of being well known”, or “recognisability based on long or close association”. If there is one vehicle that the general public is probably familiar with in the “sports sedan” category, it has got to be the BMW 3 Series. Ever since the first generation 3-series was launched in 1975, the 3 Series has been BMW’s best-selling model globally, accounting for around 30% of the brand’s annual total sales. It’s no wonder then, that there are so many of them around. However in the last couple of years, much to the chagrin…

  • Lingenfelter Corvette howls against 1000-horsepower Ford GT

    VetteTV
    1 Sep 2015 | 4:03 pm
    This, if anything, is a battle of forced induction. Case in point: that Ford GT is packing a twin-turbo system by Heffner Performance, which—true to its name—is rocking up to 1,150 horsepower. And the Lingenfelter-modified Corvette C6 Z06 has the company’s supercharger with 670 horsepower. That’s quite a horsepower difference. But in a race like this, is that an ass-whooping or a surprise victory? After all, we’ve seen plenty of underdogs triumph in drag races. Nope. The Ford GT destroys the Corvette. As is to be expected. But as it crosses the finish line, the Corvette still…

With the egotistical license plate, “V8EATIR” attesting to its mission, this tiny, noisy Mazda RX-2 surprises us by making good on that promise. A mad 13B rotary engine packs so much power, the Mazda pops a hell of a wheelie. No matter how fast that C6 Corvette Z06 could have been, it never seemed to stand a chance.

It’s a stock Viper, sure. But with the new Z06 producing 650 horsepower, is the Viper as mighty as it once was? This race will tell you no. From the passenger side view, the Z06 passed the Viper handily, then kept roaring to the finish. “Jesus what the hell is done to that ZO6 making a Viper look like a damn Honda. Holy shit,” said one commenter. We’d agree with him. That is one hell of a Corvette. The…

    How do LED lights Work? Light emitting diodes, a.k.a. LED lights are quickly becoming the light source of choice among tuners and car junkies for both interior and exterior applications. LEDs deliver maximum light using minimal power, making them perfect for use with 12V automotive systems. Light-emitting diodes are completely different than traditional, filament-based incandescent and halogen lights. Unlike old-school incandescent (Edison-style) bulbs, with LED lights, there’s no filament to burn out or heat up. In fact, these tiny little lights aren’t actually lights at all…

    Happy Mustang Monday everyone! Did you all have a good weekend? Mine was great but too fast. We got to spend the day at the ballpark yesterday where I took in an Orioles game with my son, dad, and grandfather. The O’s lost their fourth straight to the Twins… even after being up 3-2 in the top of the 9th with 2 outs. They blew the game with a string of errors, but we got to see 12 innings of great (but very hot) baseball. Good times for all (except the Orioles)! On the way I saw plenty of Mustangs, including two 2015’s – a green and a black. The drivers could probably…

    I’ve got a major dilemma. My family desperately needs the space upgrade that a minivan can provide and my wife refuses to drive one. To her minivans are the “mom jeans” of transportation and she is not ready to let go of her low-rise denim just yet. I see her point, and I feel it too. In a way it’s like buying a minivan is buying your own tombstone and saying “yep, I’m officially  old.” The practical side of me is winning out though, and so now I need to convince her that buying a minivan is not putting the nail in the proverbial coffin of cool. I’m just not…

  • Abu Dhabi Shows Off A New BMW M4

    neo
    1 Sep 2015 | 11:57 am
    The idea behind the BMW M4 is brilliant, yet simple. This is basically a technologically-engineered driving tool meant for precision driving, resulting in the ultimate high-performance sports car. Now, it would be wrong to call the M4 a supercar, but it’s pretty close to reaching that title. I guess its looks holds it back, but not by far. So, customizing your BMW M4 might get it closer than you think; adding an AC Schnitzer rear wing, Akrapovic exhaust tips and carbon fiber inserts – like they did to this particular vehicle – is not a bad idea. The coupe is equally stunning…

    31 Aug 2015 | 1:27 pm
    I think it’s about time this blog talked about the BMW M1. No, not the souped-up version of the 1-Series, the mid-engined sports car produced by the Bavarian behemoths from 1979-1981.
