else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious

The 950 HP Switzer E900 GTR - /TUNED
After last week's Runway Tuner Shootout, Matt couldn't resist taking the
winning car, the E85 powered Switzer E900 GTR out for a little drive. What
he finds is not just another GTR, because this is the fastest street car
he's ever driven.
The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.
2014 BMW M235i vs Lexus IS F Drag Race: Mighty V8 vs Inline-6 Turbo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 BMW M235i and the 2014 Lexus IS F don't
really compete...or do they. Perhaps only on a drag strip at one mile
above sea level in a proper drag race. In another fun and informative
TFLcar video review Nathan and Roman decide to find out which is faster in a straight up drag race. The
mighty V8 of the new fire breathing Lexus IS F or the small but fast turbo-charged 3.0L in the new BMW M235i.

2015 Lexus NX 200t F-Sport Luxury Crossover Test Video Review
sover-first-drive-and-review-124741/?id=32972 The NX is an all-new model
for Lexus which has never had a compact crossover SUV in its line-up. This
is not uncharted territory as the RX-line has been one of the best-selling
crossovers year after year. The Lexus NX is based on the Toyota RAV4
platform but sources say that this vehicle is 90% different. This crossover
does come across as a real Lexus and not simply a rebadged vehicle.
Under the hood is a brand new 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-clinder engine that makes 235 horsepower and 258
lb-ft. of torque. This particular model has the F-Sport package which adds
unique styling, different wheels, stiffer suspension, tighter steering,
Premium LED Headlights, and more.
Design wise the NX fits in with the rest of the Lexus Family featuring the
unique Spindle Grille up front. Everywhere you look there are character
lines to make the NX stand out. The front bumper is aggressive and the rims
are very cool indeed. This is certainly a very stylish crossover.
Lexus is looking to attract a younger group of consumers. There is no
question the distinct styling will attract younger buyers. Another factor
is the fact the NX will fill the entry level gap that is missing in the

2015 Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h Detailed Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB

While Land Rover arguably invented the concept of a luxury SUV with their
first Range Rover, the 1998 Lexus RX is the vehicle that's had the single
biggest impact on the luxury industry. Initially derided by the press as a
lifted Camry with delusions of grandeur, calling the RX a run away sales
success would be an understatement. Lexus' original crossover now accounts
for over a third of the brand's total volume in America and holds the crown
as the best selling luxury vehicle on our shores. Trouble is, the RX has
grown over time and is now a half-step too big for European tastes. In the
hopes of dominating a third of Lexus brand sales in Europe, Lexus engineers
went back to the drawing board and created s little brother for the RX: the
2015 Lexus NX.
The right-sized Lexus crossover is, as you'd expect, almost exactly the
same size as the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, BMW X3 and Acura RDX. That puts the
NX slightly ahead of the Mercedes GLK, four inches ahead of the 2015
Lincoln MKC and a full foot longer than the Range Rover Evoque. With 6.9
inches of ground clearance the NX should be just as dirt-road capable as
the average luxury soft-roader and interestingly Lexus bothers to publish
approach and departure angles. In case you're now wondering, approach is
28.7 degrees in 200t and 300h trim and 16.8 deg in the F-Sport because of
the flatter front end. Departure remains 24 degrees on all models.
Before you ask, the NX isn't a shrunken RX and it isn't a luxury RAV-4
either. Lexus claims that 90% of the parts are unique to the NX and those
that are shared are primarily related to the optional hybrid system. Thanks
to the clean sheet design, the NX is the first Lexus that looks comfortable
in the new corporate uniform.While other Lexus models (namely the LS) wear
the "spindle" grille surprisingly well, other aspects of the new design
language haven't translated well to the luxury brand's utility vehicles.
The "Nike swoosh" LED daytime running lamp modules that look oddly
out-of-place on the IS sedan actually work on the NX and I found myself
wondering why. I think the answer can be found in the headlamp module which
is much sleeker than in other Lexus models thanks to standard LED low
beams. Overall the combination allows for a more balanced front end.
From tip to tail there's no doubt that the NX's design won't be for
everyone, but I find that refreshing for a brand long known for
design-restraint. I wouldn't exactly call it the looks ground breaking or
polarizing, but this is as close as Lexus has even been. Although Lexus is
making an NX F-Sport Hybrid, Lexus has chosen to not offer the aggressive
grille and fuel-sipping engine combo in America.Under the hood beats the
first turbo engine Lexus has sold in
America: an all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While the
engineers spent most of their time telling members of the press how
fantastic their turbo design is, I was
more intrigued that this seems to be the first non-hybrid drivetrain that
can switch between an Otto and an Atkinson cycle. (Mazda tells me they do
not consider the SkyAcitv design an Atkinson cycle.) The technology behind
this is a new variable valve timing system that can adjust the intake and
Exhaust cam timing independently
allowing for a late intake valve closure when efficiency rather than torque
is required. Also on the trivia list is an air-to-water Intercooler instead of a more typical
air-to-air unit. The result is 235 horsepower from 4,800-5,600
RPM and 258 lb-ft from 1,650-4,000 RPM.
Rather than borrowing the 8-speed automatic used in the RX350 F-Sport (and
the XC60), Lexus chose to refresh an existing 6-speed auto and tweak it for
the turbo engine's low-end torque. The
engineer I spoke with claimed that the rationale behind the missing gears
was that "an 8-speed automatic isn't as much fun with paddle shifters."
Make of that what you will.
