Presentatie Mercedes Concept A-klasse (English Subtitled)
De volgende generatie Mercedes A-klasse gooit het over een geheel andere
boeg. Dat wordt een rechtstreekse concurrent van A3 en 1-serie. Ook krijgt
Amerika voor het eerst te maken met de kleine Benz. Vandaar dat we voor de
presentatie van de concept A-klasse naar New York moeten.
Volkswagen Passat vs Peugeot 508 (English subtitled)
Is een forse facelift voor de Passat genoeg om hem te laten meekomen met
een gloednieuwe concurrent zoals de Peugeot 508? We kijken met welke auto
je de meeste offers moet maken om in aanmerking te komen voor een lagere

Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! - Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six
speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on
Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet
gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take,
as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this
latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a
2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT
ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the
breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest
Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova"
Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear
The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and
a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass.
It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from
High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim
Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup
with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction
Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like
stock VW Bug tires.
The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With
a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers
from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI
controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of
torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country
trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The
key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive
trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car
uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a
Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

There has been a lot of conversation lately about electric cars and racing,
with some even talking about introducing the technology into the F1 stage.
Nissan, on its part, has a lot to gain in terms of awareness given the
brands focus on the development of dedicated electric vehicles like the
With this in mind, the Japanese carmaker developed a purpose-built
prototype racer loosely based on the production Leaf that will receive its
first public outing at the 2011 New York International Auto Show . Compared
to the production model, the Lead NISMO RC (for Racing Competition), does
away with the rear doors, rear seat, trunk, audio system, navigation,
carpeting and other amenities, while gaining a mid-ship location for the
battery pack, electric motor and inverter.
The dedicated racer also gets a full carbon fiber monocoque bodywork with
removable front and rear sections, fixed windows, LED headlights and
taillights and driver-adjustable rear wing.
It features a 3.9-inch shorter wheelbase, and is 0.8 inches longer and 6.7
inches wider than the production Leaf, with the most dramatic change
concerning height as the RC sits more than a foot (13.8 inches) lower than
the road-going model, and ground clearance is limited to 2.4 inches. More
importantly, at 2,068 pounds (938 kg), the race version of the Leaf weighs
in at about 40 percent less than the production vehicle.
Underneath the carbon fiber skin, the NISMO RC features a mid-mounted
lithium-ion battery and a 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 207
lb-ft of torque, both sourced directly from the production model. However,
power is transferred to the rear-wheels versus the production Leaf's
The NISMO RC also makes us of a double-wishbone suspension design front and
rear and driver-adjustable brake balance, while it rides on 18-inch 6-spoke
wheels and P225/40R18 Bridgestone racing tires.
Nissan says that in preliminary testing, the NISMO RC returned 0 to 62 mph
(100 km/h) acceleration time of 6.85 seconds and a top speed of 93 miles
per hour, adding that it is projected to have a running time of around 20
minutes under racing conditions.
Anticipation is running so high for Scion's version of the Toyota FT-86
sports coupe that some couldn't wait for the official reveal of the FR-S
later today at the New York Auto Show, and dropped the first pictures of
the car onto the web.
From what we can tell from these two photos, the Japanese automaker has
changed the design again with the FR-S sporting a new front bumper that
does away with the Geneva Show FT-86 II's aftermarket-like LED strips,
while also featuring a different rear bumper and diffuser, as well as more
pronounced rear fenders. The gaudy side vents are also gone while the study
is equipped with different exterior mirrors.
That's about all we have on the Scion FR-S for now, but we'll bring you all
the details and photos later in the day.
The 2012 XF benefits from revisions to the grille, hood, and front fenders,
which incorporate new triangular side vents, while Jaguar also added larger
tail lamps with full-LEDs for stop, tail light and turn signal functions.
In addition, the trunk lid trim has been redesigned. The XFR's newly styled
bumpers and alloy wheels complete the exterior makeover.
Inside, the changes are more subtle with the XF gaining a new steering
wheel, revised seats, a modified instrument panel and optional 1200W Bowers
& Wilkins premium sound system. In North America, the 2012 XF continues
with the existing engine lineup that includes a 385HP 5.0-liter
naturally-aspirated V8, a 470HP 5.0-liter supercharged V8 and a 5.0-liter
supercharged V8 with 510HP in the XFR.
In Europe and other markets, however, Jaguar is introducing the 2.2-liter
four-cylinder AJ-i4D turbo diesel, which
is a development of the Ford unit found in the Land Rover Freelander. The
oil burner puts out 190HP and 450Nm of peak torque, and is linked to a new
8-speed automatic transmission.
Jaguar says that with this engine, the XF reached 60mph (96 km/h) in 8.0
seconds en route to a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h), while returning a
52.3mpg UK (equal to 43.6 mpg US or 5.4 lt/100 km) on the EU combined
cycle, making it the most economical Jaguar ever.
