The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.

The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.

Yes the Bugatti was going ALL OUT because that was what he was here for.
Transmission in Sport mode and mash the pedal 100%. On the return-way he of
course did not give 100%.
Why no standing start? We wanted to do it but then we would have to support
the Bugatti owner with a new set of Michelin Pilot Pax tyres (€25 000)
and we did not have those means readily available. But we can always set up
a crowdfunding for it if you are up to it? Email me email@example.com
From 50 km/h (the start) the cars go through the gears. Agera S shifts at
around 50 ms. The Veyron
does not shift at all, it just changes clutches (double clutch, DSG),
interruption time 0 s. The more the speed increases, the more time
between the (fpr Koenigsegg timeconsuming) is the need for shifting is
needed. The Agera S does not need to compensate the shift times with faster acceleration between the
shifts. Agera S frontal area: 1,87 m2 CD 0,35 Veyron frontal area: 2,0 m2 CD =
0,42 (lowest possible). Better acceleration at speed. And also +30 HP and
-500 kg does also help.
Koenigsegg Agera R vs BMW M6 (English subtitles)
Swedish Auto Motor Sport - Koenigsegg Agera R review (Googletranslate)
Koenigsegg Agera R (Swedish hyper-car) and BMW M6 (German Sports-car)
The Koenigsegg Agera R is a mid-engined sports car made by Swedish car
manufacturer Koenigsegg as of 2011.
The Agera R can accelerate from 0--100 km/h (60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and a
theoretical top speed of approximately 420 km/h (260 mph), although this
has not been officially verified.
But engineers at Koenigsegg say that with special tyres the car can
accelerate to 440 km/h (272.8 mph).
On September 2 during test sessions in Ängelholm the Agera R broke six
world land speed records for a production car, including 0--300 km/h
(0--186.4 mph) in 14.53 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 14.6
seconds set by the Bugatti Veyron. The Guinness Book of
Records has confirmed these results, and all data was measured and
collected by a third party with the officially accepted Racelogic VBox
Koenigsegg Agera R - 402km/h EPIC Fly By on the Nurburgring!
Like on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/Gumbal
Last couple of days I visited the Gran Turismo Events on the Nurburgring.
Koenigsegg Norway also enjoyed this great event with their Official Test
Car 7031 Streetfighter and the World Record Car Agera R.
When the awesome 1115 HP Koenigsegg Agera R passed the pit lane on
Döttinger Höhe on Thursday everyone was amazed by the speed of the car.
Using the whole 3.5 kilometer straight, the Koenigsegg logged a "quite
impressive" 401.6 km/h before braking before the bridge at Tiergarten.
The Agera R has a normal Koenigsegg road setup, was driven on 98 oktan fuel
and on standard Michelin Pilot tires.

In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
