Wouldn't this sound also really confuse ducks? A group of researchers from South Korea have developed a car horn that’s less stressful for people to hear but still alerts folks to a vehicle’s presence. The new sound is similar to a duck’s quack. They presented the study at the Acoustics '17 Boston conference of the Acoustical Society of America. “The selected sound can be utilized in any motor vehicles available at the market so that not only the drivers honking but also the pedestrians hearing the car-horn sound can live more comfortably without hearing any annoying noise from the streets,” authors Sang-Hwi Jee, Myung-sook Kim, and Myung-Jin Bae from Soongsil University in Seoul, South Korea, write in the study’s abstract.

The same report mentions the Dodge Charger will spawn a Chrysler-badged crossover version. Chrysler has a grand total of two cars in its portfolio, and to make matters worse, one of them will allegedly go the way of the dodo. While the Pacifica minivan is expected to soldier on into the next decade, production of the 300 sedan is apparently slated to come to an end in 2020 without a replacement in sight. When FCA brands presented their 2018-2022 product roadmaps (see below) , we got slideshows from Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Jeep, and Ram, but not from Chrysler. That’s an obvious sign the 93-year-old brand does not have a bright future up ahead. Or does it? Here's what's coming from FCA brands: Ferrari Reveals 2018-2022 Roadmap With More Hybrid Models Maserati 2018-2022 Roadmap Officially Revealed: Alfieri Coming Alfa Romeo 2018-2022 Roadmap Officially Revealed: 8C, GTV To Return Jeep 2018-2022 Roadmap Officially Revealed: 8 PHEVs, … [Read more...] about Jeep Grand Commander Coming To The U.S. As A Chrysler?
Turner and Gunn replace Dalla Lana 's long-time teammates Pedro Lamy and Mathias Lauda at the wheel of the new-generation Aston Vantage GTE, which is eligible to race in GTE Am for the first time in the 2019/20 season. Dalla Lana, Lauda and Lamy had contested the WEC's GTE Am class as a trio since the 2015 season, taking the class title together in 2017, but were joined in the #98 car in last month's Prologue test at Barcelona by Turner, Gunn and Matthieu Vaxiviere . For Turner, it marks a full-time return to WEC action, the 45-year-old having been relegated to a part-time schedule for the 2018/19 superseason. "I'm really looking forward to joining Paul and Ross in the #98 car and challenging for the 2019/20 GTE Am championship," said Turner. "It’s going to be very hard work and I think it is going to be the most competitive season in the category, with some very quick cars and some very strong line-ups. "Paul is an extremely talented driver with a … [Read more...] about Aston Martin refreshes WEC GTE Am line-up
As a globally known personality, the world champion's words carry weight, and he's been granted the opportunity to use his fame for good. To his credit he has consistently done exactly that – and this week in Bahrain his focus has turned to human rights. The sport travels to several countries where the subject is an issue for campaigners. It's inevitable that as a major international event a Grand Prix attracts attention, and generates accusations of "sportswashing." The Bahrain GP has been the subject of that attention for many years, even before the protests in the country that led to the cancellation of the 2011 race. Back then Hamilton drove for McLaren – a team part-owned by Bahraini interests – and while he has always been honest inevitably he was wary about expressing strong personal views on potentially contentious subjects. Since then, he's got older and matured as a human being. He's grown into the role of spirited campaigner on many important subjects. … [Read more...] about Why Hamilton’s taken action on human rights
The album includes hits from the Carrera RS 2.7, the 911 GT3 RS, and many more. What’s the best sounding Porsche ever built? The 959? The 917? Well, if you were to ask Stuttgart directly, it would have to be the five cars you see in the video above. Following last week’s display of five rarest factory models , the company has amassed another five of its most iconic, aurally appealing vehicles onto a single video. First up is the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Only 500 examples were produced new, each one with a 210-horsepower (154-kilowatts) six-cylinder boxer engine. Though it may not sound like much on video, the RS 2.7 was a true force to be reckoned with on the track, and was the fastest 911 model available at the time. 911 GT3 RS stretches its pipes. And at the number two spot, the 887-horsepower (652-kilowatt) 918 Spyder taunts its 4.6-liter hybrid V8 setup. But if you know your Porsche history, than it should come at no surprise which car takes home the … [Read more...] about Porsche’s 5-song EP is the best album of the year
