Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, 2020 Honda Civic Type R, 2021 BMW 5-Series: This Week’s Top Photos

My Blog
[ad_1] Bugatti has just launched the Chiron Pur Sport and describes it as the company's most extreme hypercar yet. The $3.6 million heavy hitter has been designed for the track, and comes with enough leeway in its stability control that steering via the throttle is possible. 2021 Acura TLX Acura unveiled its redesigned 2021 TLX this week, which includes a new Type S performance range-topper. The sedan offers a racier shape, a stiff new chassis, and an all-turbocharged powertrain menu with future performance potential. 2020 Honda Civic Type R Honda is out testing its next-generation Civic Type R, but the current generation still offers plenty of thrills. This week we tested the updated 2020 model. 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition Another car we tested was the 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone…

Mercedes teases next S-Class just as photos of unmasked car leak online

My Blog
[ad_1] Mercedes-Benz is months away from revealing a new generation of its S-Class, and the automaker has just teased the car in a video presented by CEO Ola Kallenius where he welcomes back workers returning after the coronavirus shutdown. A camouflaged example of the new S-Class appears at the 2:07 mark. [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E_PbyQ5r-M[/embed] Mercedes released the video on Tuesday, the same day that Cochespias posted multiple photos of an almost fully unmasked example on Instagram. The photos show the new S-Class from most angles and also reveals the interior, which looks to be taking on a very modern look. A large, tablet-like screen spans almost the full center stack and the steering wheel looks to contain most of the actual physical buttons of the car. What's perhaps most interesting is the…

10 things you didn’t know about disinfecting your home!

10 things you didn’t know about disinfecting your home!

Home Improvement
It was one of those idyllic spring mornings when I thought about how nice it is to see nature reborn. Flowers blooming, birds chirping and for a while, I have to admit, I thought maybe I was a child of nature too. … When BAM! My daydreaming was abruptly interrupted by my frightened and terrified voices. I just realized that the food closet was filled within one night - hundreds of ants. And while they seemed to have found the Garden of Eden in my house. And for me at the same time i felt like Adam when he was expelled from paradise. After countless hours of trying in vain to destroy them, I came to the following conclusion: Nature is wonderfully provided you don't have to share your home…

2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line, 1964 Pontiac Banshee prototype, Travis Pastrana: The Week In Reverse

2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line, 1964 Pontiac Banshee prototype, Travis Pastrana: The Week In Reverse

My Blog
[ad_1] We drove the 2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line; a 1964 Pontiac Banshee prototype surfaced in a weird place; and Travis Pastrana said he's going stir crazy. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority. We spent some time in the 2020 Volkswagen Passat R-Line and found it fell short of being sporty. The 19-inch aluminum wheels are the sportiest thing on the handsome yet understated family sedan. The hard interior plastics impart the Passat's feel of a rental car from 2015, but it has a large rear seat perfect for Uber or Lyft duty. The Lexus GS is dead. The luxury automaker confirmed on Friday that the GS sedan would not return for the 2021 model year. The GS will end its run with a Black Line Special…

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan spy shots

My Blog
[ad_1] Volkswagen's Tiguan is a great choice for young families looking for a roomy SUV but who are not quite ready to move up to a mid- or full-size offering. An updated version will soon arrive as a prototype wearing barely any camouflage gear has been spotted. The current Tiguan only arrived in 2017 but has been on sale overseas since 2015, thus it's not surprising to see an updated version testing in the wild. 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift spy shots - Photo credit: S. Baldauf/SB-Medien The prototype reveals that the updated Tiguan will sport revised fascias front and rear and new internals for the headlights. The prototype is for the standard wheelbase version sold overseas but similar tweaks should appear on the long-wheelbase Tiguan we get here in the United…

1980 Briggs & Stratton Hybrid six-wheeler visits Jay Leno’s Garage

1980 Briggs & Stratton Hybrid six-wheeler visits Jay Leno’s Garage

My Blog
[ad_1] Briggs & Stratton is best known for making lawnmower engines, but the company has experimented with cars. One of those cars was recently featured on "Jay Leno's Garage." Decades ago, Briggs & Stratton built a one-off, six-wheeled hybrid. Work on the car began in 1978 and was completed in 1980—long before hybrid powertrains became mainstream. But fuel economy was still an important issue in the late 1970s and early 1980s, which is why this car exists. Jay's guest from Briggs & Stratton, Engineering Technician Craig Claerbout, says the car was built to show that Briggs & Stratton engines could power a car on the highway, they just needed a little help to get there. The car can be driven using its air-cooled gasoline engine (essentially a lawnmower engine), electric…

[ad_1] Nissan's R35-generation GT-R has now been in production for more than a decade, and while many believe it's time for the Japanese giant to give way to a successor, Nissan is content to make the current car better with each passing year. The 2020 Nismo GT-R is the latest and greatest, and Nissan says it's 2.5 seconds faster around its development track than the 2019 was. So, what makes this $210,000 Nismo GT-R even better than the lizards that came before it? We turn once again to Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained to give us an in-depth look at just what makes the 600-horsepower 2020 Nismo GT-R the fastest Godzilla produced to date. The first ingredient is weight reduction. Compared to the 2019 model, 2020 Nismo lost nearly 50…

This 1969 Mustang Mach 1 packs a 1,000-horsepower kick

My Blog
[ad_1] If you bought a Ford Mustang Mach 1 back in 1969, you spent around $3,125 for a souped-up pony car powered by a 351cid carbureted V8 engine that pumped out 250 horsepower. Or for another $26, you could opt for a four-barrel intake rated at 290. Or, for $357, you could equip your Mach 1 with a 428cid Cobra Jet V8 with Ram Air setup good for 335 horsepower. That was a hot set up 50 years — yes, half a century — ago. But that was then and this is now, and while you might still like the look of that vintage fastback Mustang, even 335 horsepower just doesn’t cut it. There are, however, folks out there eager to provide you with the vintage look but with modern…

BMW made a V-16-powered 750iL named “Goldfisch” in 1987

BMW made a V-16-powered 750iL named “Goldfisch” in 1987

My Blog
[ad_1] The 1980s were a time of excess, and brought with them the rise of BMW and Mercedes-Benz as the cars of choice to project success. It should come as no surprise, then, that German automakers and excess overlapped more than once. This V-16-powered 1987 BMW 750iL is one of the best examples of the intersection between "Why would they build that?" and "Why not?" Dubbed the Goldfisch (yes, it means goldfish), this one-of-a-kind 7-Series featured a 6.6-liter V-16 engine derived from BMW's existing V-12, BMWBlog reported in November. The resulting mill was so large it wouldn't fit under the hood of BMW's long-wheelbase sedan without significant modifications.  1987 BMW 750iL “Goldfisch” To find that space, BMW elected to move the radiator to the trunk. In fact, BMW mounted two…
