2013 Audi S4: The Sleeper Sport Sedan! - Ignition Episode 69
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago heads back to Fontana and the
mountainous roads of Angeles Crest Highway to tackle the newest update to
the Audi S4, the considerably faster and more aggressive version of the
popular A4 sedan. The 2013 Audi S4 is just as precise but with much more
attitude and when equipped with the Sport Differential, the all-wheel-drive
sedan rotates almost like one of its rear-wheel drive counterparts.
Will the new Audi S4's V6T engine reign supreme over the previous
generation's V8? Will people even be able to tell the difference between
the S4 and that A4? Stay tuned to find out.

2013 Audi S6 Luxury Sports Sedan Review
The 2013 Audi S6 is considered a luxury sports sedan since it packs a
twin-turbocharged V-8 engine, standard
Quattro AWD, and a number of other performance upgrades. The base price on
this car is $71,900 but the price can swell closer to $90k once you tack on
optional packages and accessories. Even though the S6 is a performance
tuned version of the A6, it doesn't really scream speed on the outside
unless you know to look for the S-Badging.
Under the hood lives some serious hardware designed to create serious
speed; the kind that can get you into trouble very easily. The engine is a
twin-turbocharged 4.0 liter V-8 that
makes 420 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of
torque. 0-60 MPH happens in 4.6 seconds thanks in part to the Quattro AWD
system and the 7-speed S-Tronic transmission. Out back there is a sports
rear differential that makes sure power if put to the pavement.
On the inside the diamond-stitched premium sports seats are the first
indicator that the 2013 Audi S6 is a real performance machine. As you would
expect from a $70k car this machine is loaded with features and content. A
BOSE audio system is standard but for just $5900 more you can upgrade to a
Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System that includes 15 speakers and 1300
watts of pure joy. The Audi MMI controls all the navigation and

Racing Rover SD1,Third outing
Rover Vitesse 3500 V8.Competing in "youngtimer challenge" club racing in
Denmark.1200 Kg.guessing circa 220 HP.This time trying to follow BMW E36 M3
3 litre with some succes.However the waterpump stops after failure of
alternatorbelt and session is disscontiniued.Day ended later as fuelpump
gave up.Uprating since last outing was finetuning of springheight and
balance (sorting cornerweight with a ruler !!!) and installation of
"whiteline rear stabilizer".This transformed the car into a more
predictable friend softly changing from under to oversteer in a manner that
is very usable.Tracktimes fell with more than a second.
Extremely close call between Ueo and Komagata.

2015 Honda Accord Sport Sedan Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2015/?id=32972 The Honda Accord may
be the best-selling car in America if you only take into account consumer
sales. Otherwise it is a toss-up between the Camry and the Accord. But the
new Accord is more refined and much more exciting to drive. The trim level
tested here is the Sport trim level which starts at $24,665. The Sport trim
gets you fog lights, 18-inch aluminum wheels, Sport-tuned suspension, and a
Then engine is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft. of
torque. Even though this is called the Sport model, the transmission is
still a CVT unit. The good news though is the fuel economy is 26 MPG in the
city and 35 MPG on the highway.
The interior is a great place to be. The controls are perfectly laid out
with wonderful visibility. There is also a standard reversing camera.
Everything is logically arranged and marked. It is very easy to find all
the controls since there is not much clutter and technology. You can get
more features and options by getting one of the higher trim levels.

comes in both coupe and sedan form along with a convertible model. You can
get the G37 with as a RWD or AWD luxury vehicle. Base price for the 2012

Infiniti has always been the leader in horsepower in the entry
level luxury sedan segment and the G37 continues that tradition. The engine
powering the 2012 Infiniti G37 sport is a 3.7 liter V-6 that pumps out 328
horsepower and 269
lb-ft. of torque. You can get a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic
transmission. Of course the automatic is better for fuel economy but the
manual transmission is a blast to have. Gas mileage ratings are 19 MPG in
the city and 27 MPG on the highway.
A couple of great features found on the Sport Model of the Infiniti G37 is
the Intelligent AWD system which monitors wheel spin and adapts to changing
road conditions, the sport tuned suspension, Viscous Limited Slip
Differential, larger brakes, and 18-inch aluminum rims with performance
On the inside of the 2012 Infiniti G37 we find firm yet luxurious seats.
The Seats on the Sport Model have adjustable side bolsters to fit your
driving style. The interior design is a bit simple but there are lots of
great features. The Shodo Aluminum trim looks great alongside the gauges.
Intelligent Cruise Control automatically keeps your vehicle at a safe
distance when enabled. The touch-screen hard drive navigation system has
voice recognition, SiriusXM satellite radio, and more. Infiniti engineers
put a lot of time and effort into designing the Infiniti Studio on Wheels
by BOSE sound system.
If you have between $35k and $50k to spend on a sedan and you are looking
at the luxury car segment; then the 2012 Infiniti G37 is a great car that
is tough to beat.
