2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 vs Lexus GX460 Off-Road Mountain Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL350 Bluetec and the 2013
Lexus GX460 are both luxurious 7 seater family haulers that can certainly
go off-road. However that where the similarities end. Under the hood of the
Mercedes is a V-6 turbocharged diesel
engine while under the hood of the Lexus is a more traditional gasoline
powered V-8. Of course we wanted to know not just how well the brand new
2013 Mercedes GL compares to the Lexus when it comes to ride and handling
but perhaps more importantly how the Mercedes compares of-road when the
going very muddy. You see the Lexus is based on one of Toyota's most off
road worthy vehicles...the Land Cruiser. So how did the big Merc do? Check
out this off-road Mountain Mash-up Review to find out.
2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost First Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost extended wheelbase is
obviously a car that you won't see on every street corner. At just over
$350,000 it is one of the the most luxurious, exclusive and expensive cars
that you can purchase. So if you are a car guy or gal, this must be one of
the cars that you probably want to drive at some point in your life. In
other words, it is a bucket list ride. In this first drive review video
Roman gets to check-off the Rolls-Royce Ghost from his bucket list.

2013 Porsche Panamera GTS 0-60 MPH Mile High Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS is an
all-wheel-drive monster of a four seater sports car that's filled to the
brim with go fast technology including launch control, air suspension with
multiple sports settings, and perhaps most importantly a 4.8 Liter V8 that
produces 430 horsepower and an Exhaust note that's auditory viagra. In this
video review Roman and Nathan not only find out how fast the Porsche
Panamera GTS will go from 0-60 MPG @ a mile above sea level but also how it
drives, handles and performs in the mountain canyons of Colorado.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a saloon automobile made in England by
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a BMW subsidiary. It was launched in 2003 and is
the first model introduced during the BMW era. The Rolls-Royce Phantom
Drophead Coupé, and the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, are both based on the
2003 Phantom. It also won the Top Gear Car of the Year Award for 2003.
Customers can choose from 44,000 paint colours, and specify any leather
Car has a power reserve dial indicating how much of the engine's power
is left available to the driver. This is to provide a sense of tremendous
power in reserve, and to hide "crude" underlying mechanicals from its
owners. The instrument cluster is not shared with any other vehicle. Doors
are remote operated.
The rear doors are rear-hinged, a style commonly referred to as suicide
doors, but called 'coach doors' by Rolls-Royce. Because of the rear-seating
position in relation to the rear inner-door handles, buttons are mounted on
both C-pillars which operate hydraulic motors in order to close the rear
doors. An electronic lock prevents the doors from being accidentally opened
when moving. The car will automatically brake to a walking speed if a coach
door remains open when driving off. The rear doors also house umbrellas
that are stored within the doors, and can only be accessed when the front
or rear doors are open. The fabric of the umbrella is coated with Teflon to
assist in shedding water when the wet umbrella is stored within the door.
The traditional Spirit of Ecstasy ornament has an automatic electronic
retraction mechanism to prevent theft and protect pedestrians in the event
of an accident. It may also be retracted by the driver at the touch of a
button, and retracted when the alarm is armed. The base contains a sensor
which detects movement, and will retract if tampered with.
The 'RR' logos on each of the wheel hubs are independent bezels in
order to always remain upright while the wheel is rotating.
Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review with Chris Moran.
Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Introduced for model year 2010 as the second all-new Rolls-Royce under
parent company BMW's ownership, the Ghost is a slightly smaller, sleeker
and less-costly alternative to the statelier Phantom. Of course
"less-costly" is a relative term when referring a car that, starting around
$250,000, costs as much as a nice house or condo in many areas of the U.S.
As with the Phantom, the Ghost is a combination of contemporary German
technology and classic British artisanship. The car's spaceframe body and
engine come from Deutschland, while the interior trim and final assembly
continues to hail from England.
We got to spend several days living with the Rolls-Royce Ghost, and truth
be told it made us feel like a media mogul rather than a mere automotive
Unlike the Phantom, which is also available in a "Drophead Coupe"
convertible, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is only offered as a "saloon," as
four-door cars are called in the U.K. It comes wrapped in broad-shouldered
styling that is both formal and aggressive. The automaker's traditional
upright chrome grille caps the front end, flanked by narrow Xenon
headlamps. A tall beltline runs the length of the car with a bit of a curve
to it and meets the gently sloping roofline at a well rounded rear-end
treatment. At a massive 212.6 inches long, the Ghost fit in our garage with
only a few inches to spare.
Wide-opening rear-hinged "suicide" doors make ingress and egress into the
Rolls-Royce Ghost's voluminous rear cabin easier; an electronic lock
prevents these doors from being opened while the car is moving. As the
car's heritage warrants, the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament resides just
above the front grille. However, in a high-tech nod to the realities of
modern motoring, it automatically retracts into the vehicle when the Ghost
is parked for the sake of security. A cap at the center of each wheel is
engineered to rotate separately so that the "R-R" logo remains upright at
Our tester came in a Claret (i.e maroon) paint treatment with the extra
cost ($5,750) silver satin bonnet (hood) treatment that we found a bit
garish, though it proved to be an attention getter.
Under the Rolls-Royce Ghost's long hood resides a 6.6-liter V12 engine that
generates a generous 563 horsepower and is strong
enough to propel this nearly 5,500-pound vehicle to 60 mph in a claimed 4.7
seconds. All those horses are channeled to the rear wheels via an
eight-speed automatic transmission, and tradition dictates that it's
operated via a column-mounted shift lever. In this case it's BMW's
electronic gear-select system in which you push the lever up for reverse,
down for drive and depress an end button in to put the transmission in
park; it works well enough but half the time we accidentally engaged the
windshield wiper stalk instead. The powertrain delivers smooth and
stunningly quick acceleration on demand, yet remains docile around town so
as not to overpower a driver. The Ghost is rated at meek 13-city/20-highway
mpg fuel economy, which should be of little consequence to a well-heeled
The Rolls-Royce Ghost rides on a sophisticated double wishbone suspension
up front with a multi-link array at the rear and automatic damping
height-adjustable shock absorbers at all four corners. It delivers a smooth
ride yet remains surprisingly tractable through the curves. While the car's
easygoing steering creates a certain disconnected feeling from the road,
hairpin turns and sudden curves didn't seem to unnerve the suspension, with
only a modest amount of stability control intervention coming to the fore
during the most-extreme maneuvers. The car was rock solid and smooth
sailing at highway speeds, with the ability to leap fairly athletically
from one lane to another when called upon. We felt a few bumps and jolts
over pockmarked pavement, due largely we suspect to the standard run-flat
tires (which by nature are stiffer than conventional rubber), but by the
same token the ride is never floaty or bouncy, which will certainly spare
rear-seat riders from ever feeling seasick in this land yacht.

Rolls-Royce Ghost Test Drive and Review-- Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
A test drive in a 2010 Rolls-Royce with Chris Moran. Rich people are
different from the rest of us. Their wants and needs involve parameters and
details completely foreign to the proletariat. While we use our vehicles
for transportation, utility and sport, the rich view their automobiles as a
necessary accoutrement to their elevated lifestyles.
For the ultra-wealthy, an appropriate equivalent might be an original
Remington bronze or Picasso painting. And just as they need art in their
mansions, they need beautiful transportation. The 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost
lives up to those lofty requirements by simultaneously being a rolling work
of art and a status symbol beyond reproach.
Like access to the Queen, our time with the Ghost was strictly limited, so
comprehensive driving impressions will have to wait. But what we did get
was a rare glimpse into what the world's richest inhabitants will enjoy
when the Ghost goes on sale this year. And as you'd expect, life is good on
this side of the financial Bell Curve.
In the world of automobiles, there are better vehicles than the 2010
Rolls-Royce Ghost. Some may feature more complex and innovative
engineering. Others may provide more performance. There are certainly more
expensive and exclusive cars.
But none of these facts matter. To those attracted to the newest, smaller
Roller, what matters more is how the Ghost goes about its business of
enhancing a well-off individual's life.
Certainly, the engineering is solid. It's what you'd expect of
Rolls-Royce's caretakers at BMW. Approximately 20-percent of what's used in
the Ghost is related to the current and previous generation BMW 7 Series.
In other words, Rolls-Royce started with premium stock and went no where
Certainly, the 2010 Ghost has more street presence than BMW's flagship. The
differences are so great that most would never know the two were related,
even with the knowledge that the hallowed British marque is under German
The Ghost's lines are artfully drawn, not a bit fussy or over done. They
are simple and elegant, and impart a sense of solidity. Important details
such as the coach doors (otherwise referred to as "suicide" doors by the
unwashed masses) allowed designers to make a single element of the front
and rear door handles. The design simply looks right. Tiny details
reinforce the aura, including the "RR" centers that spin freely within the
wheels so the logo remains upright at all times.
While there's not much to set the Rolls apart at the rear -- those chromed
Exhaust tips are a $3,200 option -- up
front the car's heritage is unmistakable. Set off by the optional $5,000
Silver Satin Bonnet finish, the smaller-than-on-the-Phantom recessed grille
looks appropriately updated and none-too-large given its surroundings. The
strong horizontal shape of the Xenon headlamps (with integrated running
LEDs) accentuates the fenders and provides another familial styling cue. A
single line of turn signal LEDs rest directly below the main lamps, and
standard foglights would apparently be gauche.
And, of course, one cannot overlook the Spirit of Ecstasy. She's been the
brand's mascot since the very beginning, and looks remarkable for being 99
years old. She first adorned a Rolls-Royce in 1911, and has been used in
various poses ever since. To protect against theft and in the event of a
collision with a pedestrian, she quickly retracts into the faux radiator
shell. Find her image in the gallery and look at how lovingly she was
sculpted. If you look close enough, you can see how her young eyes look
eagerly ahead. While setting a good example for all, her eager attitude is
warranted given the performance available from the Ghost.
Based on the twin-turbo V12 from the
fourth-generation E66 7-Series, the Ghost's engine has been stroked from
6.0 to 6.6 liters and produces 563 horsepower at 5,250 rpm with
575 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm. The gearbox is based on a unit
spreading through BMW's ranks, the excellent ZF eight-speed automatic.
