VW Announces Finished XL1(Feb 21, 2013)The difference is that instead of going 260 mph, this gets 260 mpg. It's still an incredibly innovative vehicle, and some of the tech could soon trickle down to make Jettas and Golfs more efficient.
VW Announces Finished XL1(Feb 21, 2013)I think this thing's pretty damn cool, like a supercar built for efficiency instead of performance. It's a unique looking low production vehicle made out of carbon fiber, with the lowest drag coefficient of any car ever built.
VW Announces Finished XL1(Feb 21, 2013)It's simple, lightweight, and efficient. Nobody complains about Lotus interiors being plain, this is designed similarly to be as light as possible.
Nissan Withdraws from DeltaWing Program(Feb 13, 2013)Supposedly Ben Bowlby isn't even involved in the Deltawing project any more, it's completely owned by Panoz now. Michelin, Highcroft racing, and pretty much everyone else who was involved dropped out, and now it's powered by a Mazda engine.
GT86 to Underpin New Supra, BMW Z4(Feb 12, 2013)*Keep the BMW's straight 6. Flat 6 is different, it has the cylinders horizontally opposed to each other like Porsches, Subarus, and the GT-86.
Watch This Bugatti Blast to 218 MPH(Feb 01, 2013)Redge, air resistance increases exponentially with speed so you'd probably need at least twice that much power to get to 290. But I'm pretty sure I remember reading that Bugatti said they wouldn't try to reclaim the record once they lose it anyway.
Top 5 $50k Sport Coupes(Jan 31, 2013)Why doesn't Audi make their sports cars faster than their luxury cars? The S8 can go from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, I don't get why they'd make the TTS a good second and a half slower than their huge full size sedan.
F150 Revealed at Private Preview(Jan 31, 2013)The Venom is capable of beating pretty much any supercar in the world, but most drivers wouldn't be able to drive it anywhere near its limits.
Lamborghini Reveals Gallardo GT3 FL2(Jan 29, 2013)No it's not Tim, this is a brand new GT3 racing car for the 2013 season. You're probably thinking of the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale which looks pretty similar to this.
Megafactories Visits Lexus LFA Works(Jan 23, 2013)Does anyone know what that square opening in the vent under the taillights is? Those look really out of place, but otherwise this is one of the best looking cars in the world IMO.
Top 5 Detroit Production Car Debuts(Jan 19, 2013)@William: I've literally never heard anyone complain about the Vette having round taillights, they've been implemented really well into each generation. That being said, I'm glad Chevy mixed it up with the C7, this new rear looks great IMO.
Jeep Wrangler Pickup Still Possible(Jan 19, 2013)Is the next-gen Wrangler really due in 2015, or is Carbuzz just making up numbers again? The YJ came out in 1987, TJ in 1997, and JK in 2007, so I'm assuming we won't see the next Wrangler until 2017.
Nissan to Debut Updated 370Z at Chicago(Feb 02, 2012)I agree with Ian; the Z has gotten way too expensive for most people, Nissan needs a cheaper, lighter sports car. And an S16 would be perfect for the job.
Report: Shelby SuperCars No More, Now Only SSC(Jan 27, 2012)@Max this was designed by the same guy who designed the Maserati Birdcage concept and the GranTurismo, so I see where you're coming from with that. He also did the Ferrari P4/5 and Saab Phoenix, 2 of the best looking concepts IMO
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 21, 2012)I know it's just marketing, but I think people would gain a lot more respect for McLaren if they gave one to a car enthusiast who couldn't afford one instead of a rich guy who already probably has tons of exotics that he doesn't care about.
Video: Nissan GT-R Shows How to Weave in Highway Traffic(Jan 09, 2012)As someone else said, this is much safer than distracted driving, at least this guy's paying close attention to the road. And to the 4 people asking what the camera car is just read the damn article! It says it's a Murcielago right above the video.
