In 1896, when he was still the chief operating engineer of Detroit’s Edison Illuminating Company, and not yet famous as a car maker, Henry Ford was invited to accompany his boss to a banquet in New York, honoring their big boss, Thomas Edison. At the dinner, the topic turned to the then newly invented automobiles [...]

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

However good the parent, the arrival of a new baby can have the unfortunate effect of making older siblings feel neglected and unloved. We didn’t expect those kind of feelings in the automotive world, but a stunt recently posted on the Internet involving a Tesla Roadster reminds us of a jealous sibling clamoring for attention after the…

Video: Rare Gumpert Apollo crashes at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

With the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed well under way and the fact that million dollar supercars race up the short hillclimb seemingly continually throughout each and every day of the event, it was only a matter of time before Goodwood?s first 2012 crash occurred.

Rather than it being a cheap-to-repair hot hatch, the car involved in this serious incident was none other than an ultra-rare Gumpert Apollo in the closing meters of the hillclimb. The crash was captured on film, and the above video displays the true severity of the crash in which both the driver and passenger suffered minor injuries.

No official cause for the crash has been identified thus far, but it seems pretty obvious to us that the driver went into the left-handed bend with a little too much speed which prompted the rear-end to step out, resulting in the car sliding uncontrollably into the hay barrier.

Fortunately, this relatively soft crash barrier would have helped reduce the impact of the crash, while the Apollo?s carbon fiber monocoque undoubtedly played a role in protecting both occupants.

A commenter on Shmee150?s blog has claimed that the female passenger was stuck in the car for upwards of an hour before being admitted to hospital for no less than 5 hours with bruises.

The success of a car brand is most often measured by the number of units its dealers move off their lots. There’s another piece of marketing at work, though, that’s often behind those sales numbers: Brand perception. An automaker’s brand goes way beyond the logo on the grille or the name attached to the trunk [...]

Video: Watch a 17bhp Renault Twizy drift

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

When one thinks of a drift car, an electric-powered urban transport vehicle definitely doesn?t fit the bill. In an ideal world, one would want a rear-wheel drive car powered by a front-mounted engine producing as little as 200HP like the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. That being said, the Renault Twizy does have at least one of those aspects with it being rear-wheel drive.

It?s almost hard to believe just how little power the Twizy has when one really thinks about it. Any car below 200 or even 150HP is often viewed as underpowered in today?s modern world of automobiles, but the Twizy only pumps out 17 horsepower from its tiny electric motor which also produces 70Nm of torque which can help propel it to 75 km/h.

However, Autocar set out to find out if the tiny 1+1 vehicle could drift when thrown around a drifting circle covered in water, and what would you know, the car turned out to be quite the drift machine.

However, due to the fact that the Twizy is almost laughably underpowered, it genuinely seems like the Twizy is drifting in slow motion and the presenter goes onto reveal that under these conditions, its battery would only last 10 minutes.

Now we?re sure no one out there is going to purchase a Twizy for its drifting capabilities, but it?s definitely interesting to know that almost any car out there can drift.

There’s absolutely nothing unusual about a Chevy Chevelle built for pro touring, as long as you’re talking about a second generation model, built from 1967 to 1972. In 1973, the Chevelle grew noticeably in length, width and weight, while at the same time new emission standards emasculated its once-potent V-8. A few years earlier…
