Eagle E-type Low Drag GT Coupe (2014) CAR video review
The Eagle Low Drag GT is a Jaguar E-type with modern 'enhancements' -- it
features a fuel-injected 4.7-litre straight-six producing 345bhp, plus AP
Racing brakes, Ohlins shocks and lightweight magnesium wheels. No more than
six will ever be made, each taking 7000 man-hours to build, hence the
pricetag of £700,000.
Fifth Gear: Audi RS3 vs. BMW 1-Series M
Fifth Gear UK and its famous host Tiff Needell compares the Audi RS3 versus
the all-new BMW 1 Series M Coupe. The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two
things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of
However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five
cylinder turbo drives all four wheels
via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW, on the other
hand, has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo and it sends all its power to the rear
wheels via a good ol' fashioned six-speed manual.
While the 1M is rumored to redline at around 7,000 rpm, the RS3 is able to
rev up to 6,800 rpm.
The RS3 sprints to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6 seconds. Top speed is
electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph). The compact car weighs in at
only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 pounds). On the other hand, the 1M is rumored
to run to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and weigh in at 1611 kg (3,552 pounds).
So, who takes the win home?

Nurburgring Lap 1M Coupe vs CSL
A lap with a Bmw 1M Coupe on the Nurburgring. The car was awesome and no
problems whatsoever. BTG lap time was 8.15 with traffic and i also needed
to back off throttle for an accident in the last part. Without traffic and
the accident under 8 min BTG is possible. I am following a CSL. Which is a
nurburgring track day car. CSL has a cage, big brakes, lightweight Exhaust and race seats en runs on pilotsport
cup tires. The 1M coupe was completely off factory. I was amazed how well
this 1M coupe runs on the Nurburgring.

Porsche's new 981 Boxster is an all-new design. Bigger, but lighter than
before. We went to the launch event in the South of France to see how good
it was. And whether a man can now buy the girl's Porsche.
