With the hatchbacks of the world getting faster and faster and better equipped then most sedans, they really are becoming first choice for most car owners. I mean, what’s not to love? You can squeeze in the same amount of people into a hatch as you can with a sedan. The boot size might be slightly bigger in a sedan, but with today’s “black-arts design and spacial voodoo”, you don’t really get that much more with most sedans.
When mentioning Nick Heidfeld in any motorsport filled conversation, the common response is, “OH, that guy who raced in F1 and I think had a few podium finishes. Didn’t he crash quite a few times?” Well, that hasn’t changed now that he has entered the quiet, yet energy packed Formula E.
With the chassis of a 2 series, the interior space of a 3 series and the luxury of a 5 series! Add in awesome suicide doors and a crazy turning circle and well, who could ask for more?
A paint that allows the driver to animate the vehicle’s exterior when it’s dark in quite bright colours, but it looks completely normal during the day. Yes, read that part again! Pretty darn cool! If that still doesn’t make sense, check out the video below, this on the new Tesla Model S, pretty cool.
For those of you that love hot hatch backs and literally like leaving people in the dust, you will be very excited to hear that there is a Diesel powered version of the Focus ST is on it’s way, whether we are getting them here in sunny South Africa is another question, but the fact that it actually exists is awesome news!
Well played Mazda Canada, well played!
What petrol heads really wanted from the four-ringed precision Germans was a compact sports car that would get you more excited then Jennifer Lawrences’ leaked nude pics, and that’s while you’re stuck in traffic. Sadly, that was never the case with the first few generations of the Audi TT.
For those of you that are HUGE fans of the ever electric, ever Monstrous, GoPro hungry Ken Block might like this rather noisy and larger than life Nordic Tractor Terrors!
I bring to you Nordic turbo charged mayhem, the only way the Norwegians know how!
Finally, the age old argument that could never be answered in any pub even with modern day technology and the typical “just google it” has finally been solved by the Top Gear Festival guys.
Which is faster around a track? A supercar, superbike or a F1 car?
BMWs are a dime a dozen, but sometimes, just sometimes, you get to see some very special cars. I am not talking about the new 2014 BMW M3 and newcomer to automotive world, the M4. Nor am I referring to the E46 M3 CSL (WOW, mouthful). I am talking about one of a kind, privately owned, rebuilt BMW Race cars.
