2012 Fisker Karma - 3 Top Gear Review by 11 year old Josh Asarnow - Jay Leno
11 Year Old Josh Asarnow introduces the brand new 2012 Fisker Karma while on vacation in West Palm Beach, FL. Jay Leno, you are a huge inspiration! I would love the opportunity to interview you in your Car Garage. I bet we would have fun too! Check out Josh, his 3TopGear You Tube Channel and his reviews: http://www.youtube.com/3topgear Electric Luxury And Performance. Plug In Or Fill Up. Finally, sustainable design without compromise. Introducing the Fisker Karma, the first true electric luxury vehicle with extended range and the freedom to plug in or fill up. With the ability to toggle between the all-electric Stealth Mode or fuel assisted Sport Mode with the simple shift of the paddle, the Karma delivers high impact performance while maintaining a low impact on the environment. The Fisker Karma -- a bold expression of un-compromised responsible luxury Design The elegant lines of windswept sand dunes and the muscular grace of a cheetah inspired the design of the Fisker Karma. The design team's inspiration were also led by the understanding of the principles of order, and the harmony of opposing structures, textures and elements. Interior Materials The components that form the Karma's interior are as unique as they are essential to continuing Fisker's sustainable and accountable design philosophy. Every Karma produced reflects Fisker's dedication to the use of reclaimed, recycled and reusable materials: Wood trim is sourced from reclaimed lumber, seating foam is fashioned from soy-based bio fiber and the carpet backing is created from recycled post-consumer materials. The Karma EcoStandard features an interior environment that's tinted a rich shade of black (Black Onyx Monotone) and emulates pure grain leather. The EcoSport's leather comes from the world's first closed-loop leather manufacturing plant. Not only is the leather sourced from farms that abide by the Five Freedoms of Humane Animal Treatment, approximately 85% of the entire hide is used (more than double the amount used by traditional automakers). The Karma EcoChic is the most advanced sustainable trim package available. It features 100% post-industry virgin textile Premium EcoSuede to surround occupants in a lush and sustainable driving environment. 22" Wheels The Fisker Karma is the first production vehicle to feature 22" Circuit Blade wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires as standard equipment. The wheels are powder-coated to provide an enduring finish and limit harmful VOC emissions in the manufacturing process. The Karma also comes standard with a race-inspired braking system -- featuring large rotors and Brembo™ Monobloc calipers that incorporates regenerative braking in order to capture kinetic energy during deceleration. Command Center A simple touch screen interface was designed to manage the premium audio, navigation, iPod™, Bluetooth™ and climate control systems. To reflect Fisker's signature design detail, a chrome bezel surrounds the flat screen glass surface -- perfectly complementing the jewel-like quality of the instrument gauge cluster. Solar Roof Featuring the largest solar glass roof ever designed for a production vehicle, the Fisker Karma harnesses energy from the sun to extend the driving range for up to an additional 200 miles/322 km annually. Custom designed to be a wonder of both art and engineering, the roof visually conveys the Karma's advanced technology and environmental purpose. Reclaimed Wood The Karma's uniquely refined interior wood trim is 100% sustainably sourced from Fallen, Sunken and Rescued Wood™ to ensure that no live growth is ever used. Fallen Wood™ comes from fallen trees in the western United States. Sunken Wood™ has a white oak finish with a beautiful patina, created naturally after resting at the bottom of Lake Michigan for over 300 years. Rescued Wood™ is recovered from trees from wildfires in California. Lighting Every Karma comes standard with Bi-Xenon headlamps and low energy LED lamps throughout the vehicle. The Karma also uses low-voltage LED exterior lighting, including the car's reverse, rear fog and side marker lights to conserve power wherever possible.

Tank Trap Part 1! - Top Truck Challenge 2014
Purchase the official action-packed TTC 2014 DVD at http://www.4wheelparts.com/Apparel-Books-DVDs/Top-Truck-Challenge.aspx?t_c= 85&t_s=415&t_pt=100393 Tank Trap Part One This is the event most Top Truck Challenge competitors anxiously await—or dread. The Tank Trap is a quarter-mile-long course designed to force each competitor to fight for every inch of forward progress. The Tank Trap is a standard feature at the Hollister Hills SVRA, but for TTC, it’s modified to our specs using heavy equipment and water. As in previous years, Tank Trap (located in a deep, natural valley) had an approximate 195-foot climb in elevation from start to finish. Due to water restrictions from the 2014 California drought, we had to cut back on the number of water holes, though we used the same numbering system as in previous years. A few yards into the course, competitors had to navigate the 5-foot-deep Water Hole 2. From there, they entered the infamous 100-yard-long “Canyon” that contained steep rock walls in excess of 7 feet in height, slippery steep rock waterfalls, nasty ledges, and generally inhospitable terrain. If they made it through the Canyon, it was onto Water Hole 3 and then a series of deep, slippery, dry climbs and descents. Provided they were still moving, they came fact-to-face with the deep, off-camber “Crevice” before dropping into Water Hole 6 and Water Hole 7.
