This is just one of the many cases of too much power in a FWD car. It was so hard to get traction, but it all worked out on the 4th try.
The Saturn Aura:
The Saturn Aura was introduced in 2005 for the 2006 model year to replace the Saturn L-Series. Saturn had never intended to use the Aura Concept name for production, but the name ended up sticking as a result of its popularity. The Aura's design was produced under several different names including the Fiat Croma, the Cadillac BLS, the Chevrolet Malibu, the Pontiac G6, the Opel Insignia, the Opel Signum, and the Opel Vectra, Saab 9-3. The Aura marked the first time since the 70's that GM's German division Opel had products sold in the United States. The XR trim of the Aura utilized the concept's 252 hp 3.6 L V6. The XE trim made use of a 3.5 L V6 which makes 219 hp. An eco minded trim named the Greenline uses a hybrid 164 hp 2.4 L I4. The Aura was discontinued after the 2009 model year due to the Saturn division's termination by GM.
Limit Pushing - 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 0-60 Test
We could not achieve a very quick 0-60 time in the automatic version of
this new Sonata. This is the second time this summer that a 2011 Hyundai
was slow due to the auto transmission. This car is very cool and stylish
for the price, but if you are planning on buying a new Sonata, go with the
2.0L SE version.
The Hyundai Sonata:
The Hyundai Sonata was introduced in 1985 as the Y platform. It was sold in
very few markets including Korea and Canada. The body of the first
generation Sonata was closely based on the Hyundai Stellar's design. Twenty
four years later the sixth generation was released for the 2009 model year
as the YF platform. The redesign of the sixth generation quickly became an
award winning design. The YF platform won awards from reviewers including
Consumer Reports, Ward's Auto World, Kiplinger's Personal Finance,
Cars.com, Consumers Digest, and several others. The sixth generation was
badged the i40 in Western Europe and the i45 everywhere else. The YF was
sold in three trims, the GLS, the SE, and the Limited. These trims made
use of a 2.4L I4 making 198 hp and a turbocharged 2.0L I4 making 274 hp. The YF
platform is still in production today.
Limit Pushing - 2011 Expedition Top Speed Test
Finally ending Ford's reign over the Limit Pushing Channel is the top speed
of the new Expedition. We have read reports that this thing can top 135
mph...limiter removed...so we knew the limiter must be set low. Please
don't shoot the messenger. This is as fast as it goes with the limiter on.
The Ford Expedition:
The Ford Expedition was introduced in 1997 as a replacement to the Bronco.
It was previously slotted between the smaller Ford Explorer and the larger
Ford Excursion, but as of the 2005, it is Ford's largest SUV. It is the
second Ford to use the Expedition name, as it was part of the Explorer
Sport's trim models in 1995. The Expedition offers up to eight passengers'
seating and a V8 engine, similar to the Lincoln Navigator. Over 1,500,000
Expeditions have been sold since its introduction.
The second generation Ford Expedition was introduced in 2002 for the 2003
model year and featured an all-new 4-wheel independent suspension with
"hydroformed" fully boxed frame that was 70 percent stiffer. The all-new
rear suspension was multi-link independent and reduced rear unsprung weight
by 110 pounds, improving the suspension's wheel travel and its ability to
track uneven terrain or road surfaces for improved control and ride
quality. The Second generation was powered by a 5.4 liter Triton engine
which produced 260 hp and 365 ft-lbs of torque. The Expedition had an
available heavy-duty trailer tow package for a best in class trailer towing
capability of 8,900 lbs.
Limit Pushing - 2003 BMW 330ci Top Speed Test
Before I say anything, I (as well as everyone else) am very aware of the
BMW 155 mph limiter. In the United States, The 2003 330ci was limited to
This was one of our more interesting videos that 1) was not edited well
since it was made when we were just starting out 2) lost a lot of its
popularity over time.
So here is the re-release, I hope everyone enjoys it!
The BMW 330ci:
The BMW E46 330 ci was the highest end 3 series you could buy (that wasnt a
M car). The 330 sported a 3.0 Litre inline 6 (235 Hp) . There are a select
few 330ci that have the smg transmission. The body styles of the 330 were
the coupe, convertible, and sedan. The optional performance package
stiffened up the suspension, lowered the car, added M rims, and whited out
signals and tail lights.
Das BMW 330ci:
Das BMW E46 330 Ci war das höchste Ende 3 Reihe, die Sie kaufen konnten
(das nicht a.m.-Auto war). Die 330 sported einen 3.0 Liter inline 6 (235
Pferdestärken) zusammengepaßt mit einem automatischen Senden mit 5
Geschwindigkeiten mit steptronic oder einem Handsenden mit 6
Geschwindigkeiten. Es gibt wenig 330ci ein auserwähltes, das das
smg-Getriebe haben. Die Körperarten der 330 waren das Kupee, das
Kabriolett und die Limousine. Das wahlweise freigestellte Leistungspaket
versteifte sich herauf die Aufhebung, senkte das Auto, addierte m-Kanten
und whited heraus Signale und Endstücklichter.
Limit Pushing - 2010 MX-5 Top Speed Test
Not the greatest feeling at these speeds, but one hell of a car.
The MX-5, also known as Miata (a name that means "reward" in Old High
German), was introduced in 1989 utilizing the Jinba ittai design meaning
that the car would be as light weight as possible with minimal mechanical
complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements. This handling
mindset was carried across all three generations. The first generation sold
over 400,000 units from 1989 to 1997. It made use of a 1.6 I4 engine to
1993 and a 1.8 L after that. The first generation (NA) is known for its
characteristic pop up headlights. The second generation (NB) was launched
in 1998 with it's major changes including fixed headlights and a slight
power increase. In 2005 the third generation (NC) was introduced with a new
2.0 L engine. The MX-5 is the best selling convertible ever with numbers
breaking 900,000 MX-5s ever sold. It has won many awards over the years
including Wheels Magazine 's Car of the Year for 1989 and 2005; Sports Car
International's "best sports car of the 1990s" and "ten best sports cars of
all time"; 2005-2006 Car of the Year Japan; and 2005 Australian Car of the
Year - and making Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list 10 times.
