The Milton Keynes-based team appears to have gone out of its way to make sure that no detailed images of its new RB16B can be accessed by rival teams prior to the first day of pre-season testing in Bahrain. After conducting a filming day at Silverstone with both its RB15 car from 2019 and the new RB16B on Wednesday, it was noticeable that of the 76 images the team released after running, none of them were of the new car. Shots were captured of Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez and Alex Albon all in action and in the garage over the full day of running, but each was captured driving the RB15 only. All of the full car garage shots, panning shots and front views were of the old car. The RB16B was missing in action. While it would not be amiss of a second-rate team and photographer to accidentally send out the wrong car images and omit any shots of the new machine, Red Bull is a sharp outfit that knows what it is doing. So you can bet that the choice of images that were … [Read more...] about Red Bull’s missing RB16B fuels tech secret intrigue

Home Car reviews oi-Promeet Ghosh By Promeet Ghosh Updated: Thursday, February 25, 2021, 18:42 [IST] Rating: 3.5 Toyota and Suzuki entered into a partnership back in August 2019, with the aim of sharing products and also developing new technologies for the Indian market. Through this partnership, Toyota entered the premium hatchback segment in the Indian market by launching the Glanza, which was essentially a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.

Try and spot the changes, we dare you. Not to be outdone by the refreshed VAG trio (Golf, Octavia, Leon) and the new Renault Megane, Peugeot is about to introduce a mild facelift for its 308 C-segment hatchback. As these “accidentally” leaked official images are showing, there aren’t going to be any drastic styling changes since the designers are only making subtle tweaks. The most significant modifications are noticeable at the front where the grille has a different shape and comes with an updated mesh. The dotted LED daytime running lights have been replaced by a more modern continuous line located in the same position as on the pre-facelift car. Peugeot also revised the bumper by giving it bigger side vents and new fog lights. At the back, it seems only the graphics of the taillights have changed, although the bumper too might have gone through some updates as well but we can’t see all the details at this point because of the poor quality of the images. … [Read more...] about 2018 Peugeot 308 Facelift First Official Images Escape Online
