► 2014 BMW C evolution
With 11 kW continuous output (homologation according to ECE R85 to
determine motor outputs) and 35 kW peak output, the "C evolution" has a
powerful motor and provides a high level of riding fun. The top speed is
electronically limited to 120 km/h. The scooter supremely handles motorway
riding and overtaking - even with a passenger. It is also capable of
effortless hill starts on steep slopes with a pillion passenger. In terms
of acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h, it comfortably holds its own against
current maxi scooters a capacity of 600 cc or more.
Compared to conventional combustion engines, the electric drive of the
"C evolution" also offers significant advantages at low speeds in
particular. Thanks to elaborate power electronics settings, the alternator
offers the rider an instant, spontaneous response. There are no delays in
torque build-up at all as are typical in combustion engines due to the
clutch engaging and disengaging.
At 8 kWh, the storage capacity of the battery is extremely generous and
ensures a range of up to 100 kilometres. This means that realistic
zero-emissions riding in the big city and in urban environments is no
problem at all. As in other areas, BMW Motorrad has been able to draw on
synergy effects with BMW automobiles here. For example, the "C evolution"
uses the same lithium-ion storage modules as are installed in the BMW i3.
Here, developers paid particular attention to the quality and service life
of the storage modules so as to ensure that the range is preserved even
after many years of service life and in very cold weather.
One of the main technological challenges was optimum cooling of the
high-voltage battery. On the one hand it was necessary to avoid excessively
low temperatures due to the fact that the interior resistance of the cells
is heavily increased as a result, thereby reducing power. On the other
hand, the temperatures must not be too high since this would impair the
lifetime of the cells.
While in electrically powered cars a cooling agent is normally used to cool
the battery, air cooling is used in the "C evolution" in order to save
space and weight. The heat of the high-voltage battery is dissipated by
means of an aerodynamically optimised cooling air shaft at the centre of
the battery casing through which there is a constant flow of air. To ensure
optimum heat dissipation, the battery base has longitudinally arranged
However, the battery casing in die-cast aluminium not only holds the cells
with their special architecture but also the entire electronics unit for
monitoring the cells. It also acts as a load-bearing chassis element.
The power electronics for the electric drive is installed behind the
battery casing. This not only takes care of controlling the alternator
within a range of 100 to 150 volts but also responds to rider commands, for
example by detecting the position of the throttle grip. The system also
processes information from the brake system and decides whether energy
should be recuperated and how much recuperation torque is to be applied to
the rear wheel if required.

2012 Lexus IS F: Toyota's Turning Point? - Ignition Episode 33
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago pilots the 2012 Lexus IS F at the
test track and on the winding road. The IS F may have ushered in the
rebirth of sporty, fun-to-drive cars for Toyota, but how does it stack up
today against formidable competitors like the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63?
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013
Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two
cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they
both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch,
and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the
Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and
yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something
year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is
possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as
we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so
similar to each other.
Lexus IS F - In Action
BrianZuk records Lexus's 416hp IS F In Action on some backroads and on the
freeway! The video includes various footage of the IS F revving,
accelerating, doing launches, flybys, in car footage, gauges, engine,
exterior, interior, and much more! Be sure to turn up your speakers, the IS
F's V8 has a great deep sound! Enjoy...

2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim
at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a
chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare
how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very
well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check
out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all
three cars head to head.
2013 Subaru BRZ vs Scion FR-S 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The almost identical 2013 Subaru BRZ and the 2013
Scion FR-S herald the return of the light and affordable rear-wheel drive
sports car. Jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru there's very little that
separates the two twins except for minor suspension differences. But since
both cars can be purchased as with either an automatic transmission or a
manual one we of course want to know which one is faster to 60 @1 mile above sea level...the
automatic Subaru BRZ or the 6-speed manual Scion FR-S? Check out this fun
TFLcar Mashup Review to find out.
