But that’s not all. The German tuner has also made some changes on the outside where the M5 was fitted with an assortment of carbon fiber parts to match the extra muscle provided by the upgraded engine. The V8 sounds positively glorious and the 21-inch black alloy wheels further contribute to the sedan’s sinister appearance perfectly suitable for a mafia car. … [Read more...] about 713-Horsepower BMW M5 By Manhart Sounds As Angry As It Looks

With the extra $5,000 the Mustang receives 20 more horsepower—now with 330—without more torque, which remains unchanged at 350 pound-feet (475 Newton-meters) of torque. Thankfully, that's not all for the price. The High Performance Package also adds upgraded aerodynamics and suspension (from the Mustang GT), and a tuned quad-tip exhaust. … [Read more...] about Mustang 2.3L High Performance Pack Is $5K Extra For 20 More HP
Obviously, the body kit alone doesn’t set this Prius on the ground. The car featured here also rides on a coil over suspension setup with air ride control, capped with a set of custom wheels and tires that appear to redefine the term low profile. All in all it’s not an unattractive makeover, though admittedly, the Toyota Prius was never really an attractive car to begin with. All total, Liberty Walk lists this upgrade at $7,900, though you can also buy just the full body for $2,990. The company also sells each component separately so you can build your special Prius one piece at a time, should you so desire. … [Read more...] about Toyota Prius Gets Liberty Walk Body Kit Because Why Not?
Toyota launched its first hybrid vehicle 20 years ago, and the circumstances surrounding environmentally friendly vehicles have since changed dramatically. The growing popularity of the Prius led to the creation of a new customer standard of choosing cars based on their environmental performance. As the number of companies developing and launching hybrid vehicles increased, so a new segment of "hybrid vehicles" was established. In addition, now that customers around the world are opting to purchase hybrid vehicles and other fuel-efficient vehicles, the entire automobile industry has been able to contribute to the solution of global environmental problems. Having passed the 10 million vehicle milestone, Toyota will continue to create ever-better cars for its customers. … [Read more...] about Toyota has sold over 10 million hybrids to date
Another area that Pirelli’s engineers have worked on is the tyre’s capability to ‘talk’ with existing electronic driver aid systems. In the case of ABS, for example – assuming the same car and tyre size – a tread pattern optimised to work in synergy with the car’s own electronics is able to brake sooner. Tests carried out when braking from 100kph have shown that the new Cinturato P7 needs an average of four fewer metres to stop: a reduction of between seven and 10%. The development of the new Cinturato in collaboration with the world’s leading carmakers, through virtual tyre models, has meant that the tyres can be optimally tuned to work together with existing driver aids. One good example is lane control systems. If twinned with an ‘unknown’ tyre, these systems can potentially make continual corrections, as they are not familiar with the specific dynamics of the tyre. If the same car is equipped with a new Cinturato P7, … [Read more...] about New Pirelli Tire Auto-Adjusts To Temperature, Driving Conditions
