As I mentioned earlier this week, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace turns out to be all kinds of amazing despite not being a sexy wagon. Turning smashed soda cans into 200+ mile an hour sports cars is pretty impressive, and the 3-to-1 recycled ratio Jaguar is planning to achieve by 2020 is something even Captain Planet would…
JLR’s new 3.0 straight-six will be available in both petrol and diesel form, with a power output ranging from 275 to 500+ horsepower, making the supercharged V6 a thing of the past.
Christian Von Koenigsegg is a lucky man. His unconventional ideas about automotive engineering—pioneering FlexFuel, camless engines and gearless transmissions—have made him and his small supercar company wildly successful. He’s lucky he didn’t try to start his business based on his theory of gravity, which he does not…
This is Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s new 2016 Ford Mustang RTR Formula Drift car. It has 900 horsepower, an independent rear end, and it likes to hit the three wheel motion.
Formula 1 is now attempting to break through a technological wall, seeking to get more than 1200 holes into a brake disc. This is a perfect encapsulation of everything wonderful and pointless about the sport.
Everyone knows that this week Elon Musk will teleport back down to Earth from his orbital platform and present humankind with his latest gift: the Tesla Model 3. Everyone is wondering what this more-affordable Tesla will look like, but I’m more interested in the idea of Teslas that don’t look like anything at all.
I know this is sort of a weird metric, but if you take a given carmaker and look at the horsepower of every production vehicle they’ve made, you can see their spread of horsepower. Most long-running car companies have a pretty large spread, but nobody beats Bugatti.
Carburetors aren’t just obsolete, they’re about two tech generations behind today’s direct injection. But they are still an effective means of getting fuel and air into an engine, and the action is kind of mesmerizing.
The company that came up with electric drive axle units for the Porsche 918, the BWM i8 and the Volvo T8s, GKN, is behind a lot of the leading-edge technology finding its way into supercars. And now, their upgraded units will also make it into affordable compacts near you, resulting in cheap hybrids for all.
Ever since the Audi TT got a dual-clutch transmission back in 2003, these are-they-manuals-or-nah gearboxes have become the hot new thing in the high-performance car world. But Audi first tried out a double-clutch more than 30 years ago, in the fearsome Sport Quattro S1 rally car.
If those numbers aren’t making your internal horseshit alarms beep and wail like aroused banshees, it’s probably time to change the 9-volt in there. But that doesn’t mean there’s not something interesting here, so let’s take a quick look at what we know about the Techrules supercar.
It seems strange that ultra advanced Formula 1 cars have tires with big sidewalls like your grandpa’s Plymouth. But there’s a reason why there’s so much rubber; these tires function as much of an F1 car’s suspension.
Dry weight, curb weight, gross weight, mass are all entirely different things, no matter what you might think. Koenigsegg is here to explain how different carmakers trick you into thinking their cars are lighter than they are, because it’s a confusing world out there.
The new BMW M4 GTS is almost hilariously expensive, nearly $100,000 more expensive than a base BMW M4. Part of the justification for the price comes down to a trick water injection system that blows from the car’s butt up its nose.
If you’ve ever been in a car crash and, while looking at the damage, regretted you don’t drive with a couple of mattresses strapped to your car, you’ll be pleased to hear this: automotive safety supplier ZF TRW is developing an external airbag system that could be in cars as soon as 2020.
The streets of Tehran are patrolled by Gasht-e Ershad, the notorious “morality police” who search the streets for people in improper clothes, then snatch them off in a van to for detainment. One new app amazingly helps women (and men) dodge them.
When it comes to sucking fuel and air into an engine, there’s nothing I love more than a good intake manifold. But that doesn’t mean they’re not occasionally terrifying. Which is what leads me to wonder: is there a scarier-looking intake manifold than the one on the Nissan/Infiniti 4.5-liter V8 engine?
