Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express
Fore more videos visit: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/
British motorists tend to run summer tyres on their cars all year round,
regardless of the weather. However, as our exclusive comparison test shows,
this can be very dangerous.
We headed to Sweden to compare the performance of summer tyres with winter
tyres on snow and the results were quite shocking.
Lamborghini Huracan review
The Lamborghini Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern technology and
old-school Lamborghini theatrics.

The new Lamborghini Huracan LP6104 has a big task on its hands.
Not only must it beat the Ferrari 458 and the McLaren 650S, it needs to
outperform the Gallardo - the car it replaced - in the showroom, as the
Gallardo was the manufacturer's best-selling model ever, with 14,000 sold
over a 10-year career.
Happily, the Lamborghini Huracan gets off to the best possible start.
Perhaps the design is a little conservative by Lamborghini's standards, but
in the flesh, the aggressive proportions, aggressive front end and floating
C-Pillar push all the right buttons.
Like in the Lamborghini Aventador, the interior of the Huracan pays homage
to fighter jets, with a flip-up ignition switch, angles everywhere and a
new cockpit-like 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the wheel that
can be configured in a variety of ways.
The Lamborghini Huracan also gets a whole range of brand-new technologies.
For starters, there's this all new chassis which is made from a combination
of aluminium and carbon fibre. This makes the Huracan not only 10 per cent
lighter than the Gallardo, but also 50 per cent stiffer.
There are also new three-stage adaptive dampers, as well as a variable
ratio electro-mechanical steering system that varies the ratio on how quick
A new electronically controlled four-wheel drive system can send up to 70
per cent of the power to the Huracan's rear-wheels in normal driving, and
up to 100 per cent when you really need it.
Most importantly on the new Lamborghini Huracan, though, is a new,
seven-speed twin-clutch box that shouldn't feel like you're getting kicked
in the head every time you change gear.
Rather than downsizing or turbocharging,
Lamborghini has stuck to its guns by using a developed version of the
Gallardo's naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10.
The Lamborghini Huracan gets stop-start and a few other tweaks to make it a
little bit cleaner, but most importantly, it's now got 602bhp and 560Nm of
torque. It'll do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and it has a top-speed of 202mph.
The Lamborghini Huracan's acceleration is pretty vivid. Perhaps it doesn't
quite have the free-revving nature of a Ferrari 458 or the turbocharged hit of a McLaren 650S, but it's
definitely lost none of the aural drama that the Gallardo had.
The biggest change here with the Lamborghini Huracan, though, is its
breadth of abilities.
It has something called the 'Anima' switch, meaning it has three driving
modes. In 'Strada' mode, it softens the suspension and dials back the
ferocity of the steering, the gearbox and the throttle.
'Sport' mode is somewhat of an interim mode and it's pretty good for
fast-driving on road. But since we're testing the Lamborghini Huracan at
the amazing Ascari circuit in Spain, it would be a shame if we didn't go
for the full-fat 'Corsa' mode.
Fling it into a corner and the steering is quite light, but it's absolutely
pin-sharp. In terms of feel, it's a bit like a Ferrari 458 and you can feel
the variable ratio really helping you out, meaning there's no full-opposite
The carbon ceramic brakes on the Lamborghini Huracan are standard-fit now,
and they're absolutely brutal in the way they stop the car.
With the four-wheel drive system, there's also tonnes of grip. However, if
you provoke the Huracan a bit, you can get it to act a bit like a
rear-wheel drive car.
Perhaps it's not as lairy as the Gallardo used to be - that used to like to
gets its tail out at the slightest provocation - but you can still have
some fun with this thing and feel it moving underneath you. The tech used
in the Huracan can also make a pretty average driver look pretty
The question is though, is do you actually want a Lamborghini that flatters
you and covers up all your driving mistakes? Some will say that a
Lamborghini should scare the life out of you and your passenger. Then it
should spit you into a hedge when you're not at the top of your game.
But, we'd disagree because the new Huracan is a glorious fusion of modern
electronics and old-school theatrics.
If you want something that drives like a pig and breaks-down every five
minutes, you can always take your £186,000 and spend it on something from
Lamborghini's back catalogue.

The new VW Beetle is perfect for those seeking a retro cool soft top whilst
still enjoying a certain degree of practicality and everyday comfort. The
Coupe was introduced in 2012, with the cabriolet joining the range in 2013.
There's plenty of different specs to suit all tastes and budgets, but
thankfully this one that we are in today has head turning looks for the
right reasons and has managed to impress us at CarBuyer.
And that's because it really does look the part with its non threatening
smiley face and distinctive bulbous wheel arches. The small spoiler on the
rear plays up to its cheeky and playful side, too.
But first and foremost we are interested in its practical side. Despite not
having a huge amount of space -- which is to be expected from a car like
this -- the folding roof doesn't affect bootspace in any way thanks to the
fact it folds on the outside of the boot. Thanks to this, you will always
get this much room [point], no matter where the roof is.
And although quite cramped, these seats are brilliant for occasional use --
as opposed to having none at all.
The first thing I noticed when I got in this car was the combination of
tones, there's some tasteful shiny painted, colour coded, trim here, soft
touch materials, which enhance the overall quality and the retro theme we
saw on the outside is very much present in here too. There are six
equipment levels available however the mid-level Design provides everything
you really need including air-conditioning and DAB radio, while the options
list includes a touchscreen sat-nav and a upgraded Fender sound system. The
50s, 60s and 70s versions are a bit more expensive, but if you want retro
flair, those are the cars for you. Anyway, enough tech, let's get this roof
It can be operated of speeds up to 31mph so you can put the roof up and
down as much as the weather fluctuates on your journey.
Bringing me on to my next point, it isn't noticeably noisier to travel in
than the coupe thanks to the multi layered fabric hood that provides plenty
of sound insulation.
Bringing me on to my next point, there is hardly any wind buffeting with
the roof down, as long as you have installed the easy-to-fit wind deflector
thus allowing me to talk to you about how economical this car is.
As expected there are a number of different petrol and diesel engines to
choose from. However the most economical is the 1.6 Bluemotion Diesel
returning a claimed 62.8 miles to the gallon and emitting just 118g/km of
CO2. All can be teamed up with a manual or Automatic DSG gearbox, apart
from the one that we're in today - the 1.4 twincharged engine only comes in
manual and that returns 41.5 miles to the gallon and certainly has enough
pace to complement the comfortable ride.
And that does bring me on to the Beetle's downsides. While it drives much
better than the outgoing model, mainly due to the fact that it shares its
platform with the previous generation Golf and is just as much fun as the
Coupe due to extra bracing, it isn't quite as much fun as the practicality
smaller MINI Convertible. The biggest sour grape in the Beetle fruit bowl
though is the price. It's £2,000 more expensive than the MINI, and that's
quite a lot!
Well that pretty much sums up the new Beetle Convertible, it's an easy to
live with retro inspired cool soft top that turns heads for all the right

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
debuted today at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show but we got to drive it
before it broke cover along the ocean in California. The new Beetle
Convertible carries on a decades long tradition of topless motoring and
this newest Beetle plays on the VW Beetles reputation with three special
addition cars that include a 50's 60's and 70's theme. Check out this first
drive video review as we bring you the new car in all of its editions from
the sunny beaches of Southern California.
Volkswagen Beetle Cabrio roadtest (English subtitled)
De huidige Volkswagen Beetle is net even wat minder bollig dan de vorige
generatie. Dat geldt zowel voor de open als voor de gesloten versie. Ook
rijdt de nieuwe coupé helemaal niet onaardig. Maar hoe zit dat als je het
dak eraf haalt? We reden de goedkoopste cabriolet van VW in de Franse
zee-Alpen. Wel sneeuw, maar gewoon met het dak open.
Stuck fährt das neue Beetle Cabrio
Zum Fahrbericht: http://motorzeitung.de/news.php?newsid=148457
Rennfahrerlegende trifft Auto-Ikone: Die Gelegenheit, das neue Beetle
Cabrio über die Straßen Malibus zu bewegen, ließ sich Hans-Joachim Stuck
nicht entgehen. Und der Profi ist begeistert: „Eine Legende wurde neu
erfunden", bringt er es kurz und knapp auf den Punkt. Zweifellos ist das
sonnige Kalifornien das perfekte Jagdrevier für ein solches Fahrzeug. Aber
auch wenn die Sonne einmal nicht scheint, wird aus dem offenen Beetle in
9,5 Sekunden ein vollwertiges Coupé. „Da zischt nichts, da bläst
nichts", ist Stuck begeistert, ebenso wie von der Motorisierung, vor allem
von dem besonders sauberen Clean-Diesel und dem Zweiliter-turbo in Kombination mit dem DSG. Hier geht die
Post richtig ab.
