Car Buyers Lose Out In Fuel-Test “Cheating”

Car Buyers Lose Out In Fuel-Test "Cheating" Car makers are being accused of cheating official fuel tests, which throws the impressive reduction in CO2 produced by new cars into doubt. We could be paying fuel bills up to 25 per cent higher than those claimed by official tests for our ‘fuel efficient’ cars because makers are abusing the system, according to a leading transport pressure group. The criticism comes as new European figures show official carbon dioxide figures for new cars sold in the region last year dropped to 127g/km, equivalent to an 56.5mpg average.

That means that, on paper at least, makers have already exceeded 2015 targets to cut the average to 130g/km. But this is nothing like what owners achieve in real-life driving, according to the Brussels-based Transport & Environment (T&E) group, which has calculated the real average is 45mpg. “Fuel efficiency standards…are being undermined by an obsolete test,” said T&E’s clean vehicles manager Greg Archer in a statement. “The test procedures are a Swiss cheese, full of loopholes, that carmakers exploit to exaggerate improvements in fuel economy and emissions.” Source: The Telegraph

Say Hello To The Rezvani Beast Supercar

Say Hello To The Rezvani Beast Supercar

An upstart American supercar company, Rezvani, has created a car for people who value performance above all else. It’s called the Rezvani Beast, designed by California builder Fardees Rezvani.

Based on the chassis of the Ariel Atom, the Beast wraps a lightweight and stylish carbon-fiber body around the bare-bones track car, along with an interior that makes the Beast a more comfortable place to spend time on the road.

Say Hello To The Rezvani Beast Supercar

The Ariel Atom has long been an object of desire for track fiends, but its utterly minimalist nature can limit its appeal to the average passerby. The Rezvani Beast aims to change that, with dramatic exterior styling that bridges the gulf between track star and supercar.

“We wanted to get back to the basics,” Fardees Rezvani told Yahoo Autos. “We wanted to get back to a raw feel, a car with real tactile feedback, with a lightweight chassis.” And while the Atom is popular with people who want a track toy, Rezvani said it held little appeal elsewhere. “The Atom is fast up to 80 mph, but then it would hit a wall because of wind and aerodynamics. We can give this car a world-class design, but keep it ultralight and streamlined — make it appealing to road drivers.”

Only a few cars, such as the Bugatti Veyron and Nissan GT-R, accelerate faster than this bantamweight. Even the milder version, the supercharged Beast 300, is ridiculously quick. With 315-horsepower, along with an even lighter 1,470 lb. curb-weight, this ‘entry-level’ model could humiliate many Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Aston Martins.

Rezvani will use 3D printing, CNC milling, and CAD design to create its molds for the carbon fiber bodywork. It’s expected that about 1,000-1,500 man-hours of work will go into getting the car ready for full production over the next five to six months.

Lamborghini Dealer Gives 7-Year-Old The Best Birthday Surprise Ever (VIDEO)

Lamborghini Dealer Gives 7-Year-Old The Best Birthday Surprise EverThis Lamborghini-obsessed kid never dreamed that for his seventh birthday, he would receive the best surprise ever. There he was at a garden party with friends and family, opening presents and eating party food. Then it happened. A parade of Lamborghinis showed up at this little boy’s house, asking if they could take him for a ride to celebrate his birthday….

Needless to say he was quite excited. The boy is such a Lamborghini fanatic, that his father messaged Lamborghini North Los Angeles on Facebook to see if he could get him a ride in one of the low-slung supercars for his birthday. The dealer decided to do one better and send a whole parade.

The Ultimate Luxury Supercar

The Ultimate Luxury Supercar

If you’re in the market for a £200k supercar, then it’s hard to think of anything that delivers better value than the McLaren 650S, says Steve Sutcliffe in Autocar.

There’s never been a facelift quite like this McLaren 650S, says Nick. The car is almost £20,000 more than the 12 C model it updates, and you can still buy the old one. But does the car justify the price hike?

It’s pitched as “the world’s ultimate luxury sports car”, a car “as happy rat-running through potholed side streets at the end of a working day as it is nailing Cadwell Park’s notorious Gooseneck corkscrew corner”.

And the car lives up to its billing. The V8 engine delivers “the wallop of Thor’s own hammer right up to the 8,000rpm redline”, and “if the engine is close on perfect, then the ride and handling is more than a match”. The car, in short, is amazing – going effortlessly from “giving-mum-a-lift compliance to track-attack turn-in precision and control”.

The Lamborghini Inspired Super Yacht

The Lamborghini Inspired Super Yacht

A Lamborghini-inspired speedboat is being described as the apex of nautical engineering. The 15-metre sleek, innovative, gutsy vessel carries a $1.1 million price tag and is owned by rags-to-riches mogul Gino Gargiulo.

The styling is inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 anniversary model and the rest of the design also resembles the Aventador, while its interior is the epitome of luxury.

The supercar yacht was created by Marine Technology Inc. (MTI), who brought it to life by drawing up designs that take the most iconic features of the luxury automobile and transferring them to a working boat, capable of traveling 300 kilometres per hour.

Speedboats like this are an interesting sub-category of yachts. The immense power of the boat limits the number of people who could own one because owners would have to be thoroughly trained in order to safely operate it. Not to mention the price tag.

From the driver’s seat and the plush leather interior could easily be mistaken for the car, which is the intention. The distinctive yellow paintwork is also identical, and seeing the two super vehicles together is a breathtaking sight.

This is becoming a bit of a trend, with other supercar inspired yachts emerging all the time. If you could have your own, which supercar would you model yours on?
