Ariel Atom 3.5R Unleashed(May 08, 2014)Anyone else see there is an American company that is fitting carbon fiber bodies over the atom chassie? Looks really good and improves aerodynamics and increases top speed.
I forget the name though, saw it on yahoo autos.
Mercedes S Class May Soon Be as Electric as Tesla(Mar 14, 2014)Tesla and Mercedes have been working together before the model S hit the road.
It was tesla tech in the SLS Ecell.
I wouldn't doubt for a second of Mercedes were to do this with their a class.
This is the Best New Car You Can Now Buy (Supposedly)(Feb 27, 2014)All cars can catch on fire, the media and investors blow the model S out of proportion.
I read somewhere that tesla has the lowest instances of fire, in relation to sales volume, in the entire US cat market.
Gray Design Unveils Ferrari F458 Curseive(Feb 06, 2014)It actually looks a lot better than the liberty walk kit.
Go back and look at the Liberty kit, it looks like a bolt on kit compared to this.
This has much cleaner lines and no exposed hardware.
Duke Dynamics Reveals Ferrari 458 Velocita(Feb 03, 2014)Look how tight the factory hood to bumper gap is compared to this! It's more than double.
This is sad, taking a work of Italian art an adding this junk.
Good luck to waiver buys this.
Koenigsegg One: 1 Coming to Geneva(Jan 28, 2014)Where did all you guys hear the VW track is the only place to run speed records at?
Does it say that in Google and every kid believes it as truth?
People have been breaking speed records for over a hundred years now in salt, dirt and asphalt.
Koenigsegg One: 1 Coming to Geneva(Jan 28, 2014)Equipment to produce a new tire.
Best idea would be to make some sort of solid aluminum wheel and run it on the salt flats.
Koenigsegg One: 1 Coming to Geneva(Jan 28, 2014)There are plenty of places that these cars can reach these recorded beating speeds. Bonneville, El Mirage, and various other land speed tracks.
The issue is the tires.
It costs millions in tire development, mold tooling and injection molding
Mustang Diesel, Electric, Hybrid Possible(Dec 09, 2013)@Jackson, I just lol'd.
I swear there needs to be an IQ test before you can post on here.
Diversifying a product to appeal to a world wide audience and keeping the heritage aspects kills off just about any product.
Everyone knows that.
Mustang Diesel, Electric, Hybrid Possible(Dec 09, 2013)Is everyone on this app 13 years old?
They are saying these motors a optional!
How is having economical motors going to kill the Mustang?
Are you kidding me!
There will still be the 5.0 and some sort of a Shelby to come.
Ford Mustang's New Benchmarks: M3 and 911(Dec 09, 2013)Here is the motor trend link:
Here is a German video at Hockinheim:
If they can do this with an old school solid axel, imagine what they will be able to do with a modern IRS.
OPEN YOUR EYES!
Ford Mustang's New Benchmarks: M3 and 911(Dec 09, 2013)I don't see why this new gen mustang can't hang with the M3/4 and 911.
Remember Motor Trend tested the 2012 Laguna Seca Boss and it beat the M3 around Laguna by over 4 seconds. It was within a second of a R8 V8.
Don't hate until the numbers are in
Audi RS8 Ain't Gonna Happen(Oct 17, 2013)The S8 will be quicker to 60 than the S65.
But the raw power the the AMG TT V12 will rip the R8 from just about any race above 40mph where traction is less of an issue.
Audi RS8 Ain't Gonna Happen(Oct 17, 2013)VW group would need to use the twin turbo W12 from the Bentley line up.
This would then, in their eyes, encroach in the Mulsane.
Something they would not do.
And as previously stated the current S8 does 0-60 in 3.5.
Ford GT40 Slips and Slides Around Goodwood Track(Sep 18, 2013)You do when you have a tone of HP, a light weight car and a wet track.
The only reason that thing was all over the place was due to him pushing hard. Look at the other GT40's on the track, they were planted and he was passing like they were standing
Good Guys and their Godly Mods(Jun 11, 2013)This might be one of those re-bodied C5 corvettes.
I've seen a few of them at different car shows, they are pretty nice.
VelociRaptor SUV: A Gift Fathers Actually Want(Jun 06, 2013)No people on car buzz are children.
The people that will buy this SUV already have the viper and vet in the garage.
They have plenty of money.
I don't think Hennessy will make 30 a year but I bet be will do 10 or 15.
So who is crazy?
Kia Quoris Coming to America(May 24, 2013)I remember the first Lexus that came out, people said the same thing.... It's too expensive for a Jap car.
Lexus seems to compete pretty well with the Germans now.
The progression each model year will continue to be refined and eventually compete
ZR Auto's MC12 Corsa at Driven 2013(May 15, 2013)It does not hurt the collectibility.
It's a wrap, and it can be removed in a few hours.
If anything it will preserve the paint.
Either way I'm not a fan of the pattern or the color.
Supercars Invade the Highway(May 14, 2013)I read a story how the sultan of Bruni commissioned AMG build two replica 300's based on an SL55, both were right hand drive as well.
By the looks of the wheels this could be one of those.
Nismo GT-R Coming to Tokyo(May 04, 2013)This car is around a year old.
Obviously this car was built to maximize down force within the rules for the series it was built for.
Typically most road race cars don't go over 185 mph, circuit depending.
Top 5 Modern Speedsters(May 02, 2013)Will will is it hard for you to believe rich people like to have more than one car?
I have friends that have over 20 cars, many of them are only for fun or racing and some are just to look at.
Depreciation Kings: Mercedes CL55 AMG(May 01, 2013)My dad has a 2005 CL65, and that car is still one of the fastest on the road.
It's so easy to go from 40-120mph.
I don't think many cars can keep up with it once its above 30 mph and out of traction issues.
Depreciation Kings: Range Rover(Apr 28, 2013)People buy new because they don't have the cash and finance it for 6 years.
Granted you can typically finance a used car from a dealer also.
People usually just look at what the monthly payment is and if they can afford that they buy it.
Expensive Failures: Cizeta V16T(Apr 15, 2013)I'm guessing they used 4 heads with two cams each.
Only a common block and a single crank connecting essentially two motors.
I would be curious if it has two water and two oil pumps.
Range Rover Sport Leaks Early(Mar 13, 2013)This guy just lost his job.
Could you imagine how big of a mess these guys just made for range rover.
This tint shop won't get another job from a major manufacture again.
Porsche Upgrades 911 GT3 R(Mar 13, 2013)Brandon's got it.
The cool thing is that is essentially the same motor that's in the GT3 RS 4.0.
I was at willow springs and a guy had one of the 4.0's, the white with the silver stripe down the center.
BAD ASS CAR.
But for $250k ???
5 Ferrari-Powered Sportscars(Mar 04, 2013)Instead of changing the Enzo to a long tail version they made the MC12.
And made enough money off the sale of the 50 cars for a full year of international racing.
5 Ferrari-Powered Sportscars(Mar 04, 2013)And to the people saying it looks too long, this is basically the long body version of the Enzo.
This is why they made it, for aerodynamic purposes. Just like Porsche did for the 917 program and their long talk variants.
5 Ferrari-Powered Sportscars(Mar 04, 2013)Adam are you joking.
If you talk to people who are in the know they will all pretty much agree that the MC12 is by far the better looking variant of the Enzo.
5 Ferrari-Powered Sportscars(Mar 04, 2013)I'm not sure about the 600E but I know a lot about the W124 500E that was produced from 1990 - 1994 in a small subset of Porsche.
Porsche mainly assembled all the components that were made by Mercedes who did not have the facilities to build them.
Final C6 Corvette Rolls into History(Mar 04, 2013)"Will Will" with 215K of them on the road go pick up another one and push it as hard as you WILL!
I'm a purist and believe that the last one should go right where it is. To be preserved for hundreds of years.
I want my kids to go see it with me.
Final C6 Corvette Rolls into History(Mar 04, 2013)Don't get me wrong, I'm a Viper guy but believe that a 2006 Zo6 is the beat track day car for the money.
I have a GTS coupe turned into a full race car, we used to race "viper days" in the early 2000's but the Z06's are the best bang for the buck
Final C6 Corvette Rolls into History(Mar 04, 2013)It's sad because this is brand new, but it already looks old now that I've seen the C7.
And there is no way I could have said that two months ago.
I feel sorry for the amount of depreciation the C7 just caused all C6 owners.
Cigarette and AMG Launch 42' Huntress Speed Boat(Feb 11, 2013)The towing capacity of a g Wagon is around 10,000 lbs.
That boat is probably around 20,000lbs.
Yeah it could pull it, but not safely and not very far.
The range would probably be less than 100 miles.
Arab Supercar Attracts 100 Orders(Feb 11, 2013)It's one thing to take an order.
But it's another thing to build the car and actually collect the money.
I doubt they deliver half of them on time, if at all.
5 Upcoming Geneva Motor Show Stars(Feb 08, 2013)They don't Alex.
Ever seen an open cockpit race car!
Pretty much all you got is your wind screen on your helmet.
The small wind deflectors only push a little Air over you.
Heavy objects like rocks or tire marbles will hit you.
But that's the fun
