Everrati delivery time stretches to a year due to strong demand

My Blog
[ad_1] Everrati may have only been founded in 2019, but the electric-vehicle conversion company has already expanded out of its native U.K. to the U.S. and Europe. Demand has also soared to the point that the wait time for some conversions has stretched to a year. Everrati offers a diverse array of conversions, ranging from classic Land Rovers to the 964-generation Porsche 911 and even the Ford GT40 (replicas only, thankfully). The most popular is the 911 conversion, with the builds handled in both the U.K. and U.S. In the U.S., the conversion is handled by local partner Aria Group which is based in Irvine, California. According to Everrati, many of its customers fall in the Millennial and Gen-Z camps. They have a desire for cars from the 1980s and…

How Koenigsegg reinvented the manual transmission for the CC850

How Koenigsegg reinvented the manual transmission for the CC850

My Blog
[ad_1] The Koenigsegg CC850 that debuted during August's 2022 Monterey Car Week is a re-imagination of the Swedish firm's first production car, and one of the highlights is a transmission like no other. The CC850 uses a version of the 9-speed Light Speed Transmission from the Koenigsegg Jesko, but with a new Engage Shifter System (ESS) that makes the automatic transmission transform into a 6-speed manual (it still maintains the full automatic mode with nine gears, though). This Engineering Explained video provides a deep dive into Koenigsegg's reinvented manual. First, the mechanical differences. the ESS gearbox has a clutch pedal like a conventional manual, but it's by-wire, and instead of one clutch, the ESS has seven. These clutches handle gear selection, eliminating the need for shifter forks and synchros. It…

2023 Cadillac Lyric, 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6, 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV: The Week In Reverse

2023 Cadillac Lyric, 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6, 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV: The Week In Reverse

My Blog
[ad_1] We drove the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 broke cover, and the BMW 3.0 CSL was both spotted and teased. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority. Our perception of the future of General Motors' luxury division came into focus when we drove the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. The electric crossover SUV wears a gorgeous design, and its high-quality interior isn't a parts-bin special. With more than 300 miles of range and a suspension firmly planted in the grand touring genre, the Lyriq might just be the beginning of something great at Cadillac. The McMurty Speirling warped both time and space as it flung itself up the hill at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The small electric car set a new record, climbing…

The company that turned a Ram 1500 into a luxury sedan now plans electric Mini restomods

My Blog
[ad_1] Italian vehicle customizer Aznom previously launched the Ram 1500-based Palladium luxury sedan, but now it's trying something a little greener. The company unveiled an electric Mini restomod called the Mini E-Classic at the 2022 Top Marques Monaco show this past weekend. The first customer example will roll out of Aznom's shop this summer, with "full production" scheduled to start in September, Aznom said in a press release.

Three driving modes—Eco, Normal, and Sport—are available. LED lighting and an upgraded interior with digital instrumentation and leather upholstery are part of the package as well. Aznom Mini E-Classic…

Cyan Racing’s wild Volvo P1800 restomod headed for production

My Blog
[ad_1] Swedish racing team Cyan Racing, the team that previously operated as Polestar until Volvo took over the name, will soon start accepting orders for its wild P1800 restomod first shown in 2020. The car isn't cheap, though. Motor1 has learned that pricing starts at $700,000 and that Cyan Racing will start accepting orders following a showing at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on August 9. The price is steep but the modifications are extensive. Starting with a donor P1800, the body is rebuilt using modern materials to improve stiffness. We're not just talking replacing panels here but increasing the width as well as repositioning the greenhouse. The changes allowed Cyan Racing to install a modern suspension system as well as 18-inch wheels, in this case a set of center-lock…

Ford patents ability to remotely rev engine

Ford patents ability to remotely rev engine

My Blog
[ad_1] Ford has filed a patent application for a system to remotely rev engines. Remote engine start has been around for awhile, but a patent application published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on May 5 describes revving the engine beyond idle speeds while stationary. This would be controlled by a device such as a smartphone, according to the application. The purpose of this is to make noise. A major part of the appeal of performance cars is their engine note, Ford noted in the application. Being able to rev the engine on command allows owners to enjoy the roar of a V-8 (Ford did use a Mustang to illustrate the concept, after all) even more. So it's essentially the opposite of the current Mustang's quiet exhaust…
