2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo 0-60 MPH
http://MPGomatic.com drops the hammer on a 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo for a 0-60 MPH acceleration test.
The Veloster turbo is fitted with a
twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-liter
inline four cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower (HP) and 195
pound feet of torque. The little four banger is equipped with dual overhead
cams (DOHC), variable valve timing (D-CVVT), and direct injection (GDI).
This six-speed manual turbocharged
Veloster was fitted with summer-spec Michelin tires. The 0-60 MPH test was
performed with Traction Control OFF.
2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.

Redline Review: 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8
After seven years on the market, Hyundai proves it can build a value
oriented luxury sedan that has the potential to run with the best from
Germany, America, and Japan. For generation two, the 2015 Genesis now
features more distinctive styling, nearly autonomous driving technology,
and updated refinement bringing it closer to its direct rivals. Those of
you who wants a luxury sedan that doesn't follow the norm should stop by
your local Hyundai dealership, but those looking for more sportier dynamics
may find some competing vehicles more to your liking.
Miata spanking 2012 & 2013 Boss 302s and corvettes. Read Description.

Uploading this really long vid just to show my friends that said "no
way..." The last 4 clips stuck on are of laps at 1.28.23~1.28.15 To show
consistency later in the day. This was my first track event where I could
go as fast as I wanted too. Doing the events at Ford's Test track we always
had speed limits... Still learning and I'm sure I could get much faster. Watching these as I spliced them
together I can pick out mistakes I made everywhere... Still... Not as many
as the people I pass :) Or maybe I just wanted it more... idk. At any rate
it was a ton of fun! Can't wait for the next one!
Full laps with pass validation through the next few turns or even full laps
if it leads up to more passes. Clips are un edited except for the clip of
my pulling from my parking spot to the staging lane, that was played at
300% to speed it up. All other clips played at normal speed. (you can tell
by watching)I will be using these clips with others to make a nice short
video that will be designed around entertaining while this one is just pure
racing, no fades, no mixing clips for the right effect, just one camera
shot all the way around showing the speed and the chase.
Chased the Fox body for a while... that guy was fast! (At least compared to
(Open track day with the Shelby Club having fun and chasing each other
around. Passing only on the back straight, and blue flagged to do so. )
The white Fox Body has a 346ci engine built for Endurance racing... That
car is prepped, just not aero changes.
My car is a 1991 Miata with Enkie Wheels, Dunlop Star Spec tires, a Racing
beat header, Lightened Flywheel, and home made roll bar. Other wise stock.
Tires are 205 50 15s on 15x7 inch rims.

Mazda Super20: The Purest Miata? Ignition Ep. 74
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago drives the Mazda Super20, a former
SEMA show car built to celebrate 20 years of the Miata and to highlight the
car's ties to motorsports. Packing R-compound rubber and a Supercharger, this Miata is certainly capable. A
trip to the test track and a mountain road will show us just how capable.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

The Answer is Always Miata - /TUNED
Ask any car guy, what would make a good first car? Miata. What would make a
good weekend car? Miata. What would make a good tuner car? Miata. What
would be a good race car? Miata. What could I drive that Chris Harris won't
like? Miata. It seems the answer is always Miata. This week, CJ Wilson
Racing and Continental Tire invite us to Austin, TX to test two of their
best Miatas on the track.
2015 Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h Detailed Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB
Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF
While Land Rover arguably invented the concept of a luxury SUV with their
first Range Rover, the 1998 Lexus RX is the vehicle that's had the single
biggest impact on the luxury industry. Initially derided by the press as a
lifted Camry with delusions of grandeur, calling the RX a run away sales
success would be an understatement. Lexus' original crossover now accounts
for over a third of the brand's total volume in America and holds the crown
as the best selling luxury vehicle on our shores. Trouble is, the RX has
grown over time and is now a half-step too big for European tastes. In the
hopes of dominating a third of Lexus brand sales in Europe, Lexus engineers
went back to the drawing board and created s little brother for the RX: the
2015 Lexus NX.
The right-sized Lexus crossover is, as you'd expect, almost exactly the
same size as the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, BMW X3 and Acura RDX. That puts the
NX slightly ahead of the Mercedes GLK, four inches ahead of the 2015
Lincoln MKC and a full foot longer than the Range Rover Evoque. With 6.9
inches of ground clearance the NX should be just as dirt-road capable as
the average luxury soft-roader and interestingly Lexus bothers to publish
approach and departure angles. In case you're now wondering, approach is
28.7 degrees in 200t and 300h trim and 16.8 deg in the F-Sport because of
the flatter front end. Departure remains 24 degrees on all models.
Before you ask, the NX isn't a shrunken RX and it isn't a luxury RAV-4
either. Lexus claims that 90% of the parts are unique to the NX and those
that are shared are primarily related to the optional hybrid system. Thanks
to the clean sheet design, the NX is the first Lexus that looks comfortable
in the new corporate uniform.While other Lexus models (namely the LS) wear
the "spindle" grille surprisingly well, other aspects of the new design
language haven't translated well to the luxury brand's utility vehicles.
The "Nike swoosh" LED daytime running lamp modules that look oddly
out-of-place on the IS sedan actually work on the NX and I found myself
wondering why. I think the answer can be found in the headlamp module which
is much sleeker than in other Lexus models thanks to standard LED low
beams. Overall the combination allows for a more balanced front end.
From tip to tail there's no doubt that the NX's design won't be for
everyone, but I find that refreshing for a brand long known for
design-restraint. I wouldn't exactly call it the looks ground breaking or
polarizing, but this is as close as Lexus has even been. Although Lexus is
making an NX F-Sport Hybrid, Lexus has chosen to not offer the aggressive
grille and fuel-sipping engine combo in America.Under the hood beats the
first turbo engine Lexus has sold in
America: an all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While the
engineers spent most of their time telling members of the press how
fantastic their turbo design is, I was
more intrigued that this seems to be the first non-hybrid drivetrain that
can switch between an Otto and an Atkinson cycle. (Mazda tells me they do
not consider the SkyAcitv design an Atkinson cycle.) The technology behind
this is a new variable valve timing system that can adjust the intake and
Exhaust cam timing independently
allowing for a late intake valve closure when efficiency rather than torque
is required. Also on the trivia list is an air-to-water Intercooler instead of a more typical
air-to-air unit. The result is 235 horsepower from 4,800-5,600
RPM and 258 lb-ft from 1,650-4,000 RPM.
Rather than borrowing the 8-speed automatic used in the RX350 F-Sport (and
the XC60), Lexus chose to refresh an existing 6-speed auto and tweak it for
the turbo engine's low-end torque. The
engineer I spoke with claimed that the rationale behind the missing gears
was that "an 8-speed automatic isn't as much fun with paddle shifters."
Make of that what you will.
2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv Off-Road Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv is all new from the
ground up. It is the first car that features Mazda's new SkyActive approach
to building lighter, more fuel efficient, and more responsive cars. It
heralds a new style which in the industry is called a new design language.
Unlike the former Mazda Tribute which shared a platform with the Ford
Escape and had what many people thought was a Mazda's smiley face, the new
2013 Mazda CX-5 breaks all new design and performance ground. Check out
this video as we review the 2013 Mazda CX-5 SkyActiv AWD both on and
2013 Subaru BRZ top speed run
Like me on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/jtphotos2
At the end of May I got a call from the Subaru dealership telling me my
2013 BRZ Limited had arrived and was ready for me to take delivery. After
a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the
car was capable of. I shipped the car to the autobahn to do some high
speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed. The car is limited by its
aerodynamics unfortunately so I had to get a good stretch which favored the
car which allowed me to get up to 147 MPH. This isn't very high speed
compared to other exotic cars but for a 200HP Subaru I was very impressed
seeing what it's capable of on the top speed spectrum! For those of you
who don't know this is a rear wheel drive Subaru and the car is fantastic
to drive along with drifting ;)
