What It Was Like Riding In The McLaren Senna With Senna

Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgB2hWtutemcVUyXQRS_Dtw?sub_confirmation=1 Going over 100 mph. Bruno Senna is at the helm. I'm riding shotgun. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is awesome.   The morning of the day I rode shotgun in a McLaren Senna with Bruno Senna at the helm during the hill climb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed started off with potential disaster. Some smug coach bus driver got his bus stuck in the main Goodwood parking lot entrance even after being told the bus would get wedged in because it was too big to fit through. He didn’t listen. The line of traffic already waiting to enter quickly became a traffic jam and my ride to the Goodwood Festival of Speed from the hotel was delayed. 0   Would I miss my scheduled time in one of the newest and most extreme hypercars cars in the world with the nephew of a Formula 1 legend and an accomplished racing driver in his own right? Nope. I managed to get there in time thanks to an alternate route (the bus was still stuck for hours), given my helmet, and met Bruno Senna at the paddock where the orange McLaren Senna waited. This is also the first pre-production model off the line, which will later be shipped to the Senna family in Brazil. We were told the day’s hill climb schedule was running on time. And then it wasn’t. For whatever reason that had nothing to do with the bus, a slight delay turned into well over an hour, so Senna and I got to talking. 0 8 0   We talked cars, racing, and life. Mostly the first two. We talked about his uncle and how Ayrton Senna’s greatness was not only at the track but also through his charities, which still exist today. Bruno Senna is currently a factory driver for the McLaren GT3 program. The Goodwood Festival of Speed, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is perhaps the greatest car show in the world. McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls-Royce... you name it, they’re all here along with a seemingly endless number of retired race cars. Porsche is also marking its 70th anniversary and it’s easy to spot the massive tower with several models, including a 917, 918, and 911R, mounted at the top overlooking the entire festival. 0 8 0   And then there’s the hill climb. Beginning on Thursday, day one of Goodwood, drivers do practice runs in supercars and hypercars and a few lucky passengers, such as yours truly, get to join the fun. This was Senna’s second practice run and he would get a third one in before today’s grand finale where drivers, sans passengers, go all out in timed runs. There will be a winner. But it’s all for fun because everyone, public, media, racing drivers and automakers alike come to Goodwood to celebrate cars and speed. It’s a shared passion among the 150,000 or so in attendance each day of the four-day festival. What was it like to experience speed in a McLaren Senna? Let me put it like this: I’m now determined to go to racing school. 0 8 0   I’ve officially caught the bug, symptoms of which I’ve detected for some time ever since I drove a BMW M235i at the Nurburgring and Spa back in #WhatItWasLikeRidingInTheMcLarenSennaWithSenna #CarCulture, #Feature, #GoodwoodFestivalofSpeed, #Motorsport, #Supercar, #McLaren, #McLarenP1

6 Cars Mitsubishi Should Build To Become Cool Again

6 Cars Mitsubishi Should Build To Become Cool Again: https://carbuzz.com/news/6-cars-mitsubishi-should-build-to-become-cool-again. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgB2hWtutemcVUyXQRS_Dtw?sub_confirmation=1 None of these are far-fetched. All are totally doable.   It’s been a tough few years for Mitsubishi, but finally things are beginning to look up. Not only does it have a new superstar CEO, but also major financial backing thanks to the Renault-Nissan Alliance coming to its rescue. But look at its US lineup today; it’s bland. Back in the 1990s, sports cars, sedans, and SUVs dominated and Mitsubishi was, in a word, cool. How to bring that back? Obviously the automotive market is very different today, but we have six specific ideas that are also totally doable, technologically speaking, and that cater to consumer demand. 0 13 0   Let’s face it: Mitsubishi needs a new SUV. We’re not talking about another crossover, but a true off-road capable 4x4 that harkens back to the days of the Montero and Montero Sport. We brought this subject up with a senior Mitsubishi exec last March at Geneva and he confirmed the company is keen to make this happen. Mitsubishi is aware of the revival of mid-size off-road 4x4s in the US, like the 2020 Ford Bronco, and it also has hardcore SUV heritage. The Pajero (the Montero’s name in overseas markets) has won the gruelling Dakar Rally a record 15 times. Mitsubishi could turn to Nissan for help, who just so happens to have a great mid-size pickup truck platform available. Speaking of which... 0 13 0 13 0   Mid-size pickup trucks are making a comeback, and the Nissan Frontier is ancient compared to new entries from GM and the upcoming Ford Ranger. We’ve heard Nissan is prepping a new Frontier for the US, and that presents an opportunity for Mitsubishi to have a new truck of its own. To avoid internal competition, Mitsubishi could start with the new Nissan’s basic architecture and give it something unique. Off the top of our heads, make it a plug-in hybrid for even better efficiency. Mitsubishi already has this PHEV system in the Outlander, so it’d make sense to use it for more than one vehicle. On the other hand, if Mitsubishi is serious about that SUV, simply remove its rear seats and roof and turn it into a truck, with our without PHEV tech. 0 13 0 13 0   Continuing with off-road vehicles, we’ll just come out and say it: Mitsubishi ought to build a fully electric SUV, the first of its kind to come from a mainstream automaker. Before Mitsubishi became a part of the alliance, it was already investing heavily in battery tech. Renault-Nissan is doing the same. Why not combine all of that knowledge into an all-electric architecture designed specifically for rough surfaces? Think about it: lots of instant torque at each wheel will be extremely beneficial for rock crawling. Plus, wouldn’t it be cool for Mitsubishi to meet or beat Tesla to this segment? 0 13 0 13 0   We know everyone misses the Evo, the last cool car Mitsubishi had. Although the company claims the Evo won’t come back as a sedan, there is still a potential future for the nameplate and its high-performance AWD capabilities.

This Is What A Future All-Electric VW Supercar Could Sound Like

This Is What A Future All-Electric VW Supercar Could Sound Like: https://carbuzz.com/news/this-is-what-a-future-all-electric-vw-supercar-could-sound-like. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgB2hWtutemcVUyXQRS_Dtw?sub_confirmation=1 This is no ordinary soundtrack.   Late last month, Volkswagen’s I.D. R Pikes Peak race car driven by Romain Dumas set a record-breaking time of 7:57.148 after blasting its way up the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. That's a full 16 seconds faster than Sebastian Loeb's 2013 record. But unlike all other contenders past and present, the I.D. R concept is an all-electric machine with a total of 671 hp. Combined with all of that instant torque, powerful battery and state-of-the-art aerodynamics, this concept’s technology will, eventually, find its way to production cars. 0 7 0   Remember, this is the Volkswagen Group, which includes exclusive brands like Bugatti, Lamborghini and Porsche. All of them stand to benefit. But what would a VW Group-built all-electric supercar (or hypercar?) sound like? Volkswagen has just released helicopter footage of the I.D. R Pikes Peak’s record-breaking run, complete with an interesting soundtrack. 0 7 0   It doesn’t sound like your typical internal combustion engined car, nor would we expect it to. Instead it’s something different. Like a blaring whistle? Or, perhaps, a spaceship. The jury is out about how electric cars should sound, but we already knew there’ll be a significant amount of artificial sound required. Electric motors are extremely quiet, especially compared to gasoline engines. But with every new technology, there are problems and solutions. We’ll have our first chance to hear VW’s electric cars in 2020 when the production-spec I.D. hatchback debuts. 0 7 0 7 0 7 0 7 0 7 0 #ThisIsWhatAFutureAllElectricVWSupercarCouldSoundLike #ElectricCar, #HillClimb, #Supercar, #Technology, #Video, #Porsche, #Porsche918Spyder, #Volkswagen, #VolkswagenGolfR, #Lamborghini, #LamborghiniAventadorSRoadster, #Bugatti, #BugattiChiron

Tesla's Productivity Boom Means Lower Federal Tax Credits

Tesla's Productivity Boom Means Lower Federal Tax Credits: https://carbuzz.com/news/tesla-s-productivity-boom-means-lower-federal-tax-credits. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgB2hWtutemcVUyXQRS_Dtw?sub_confirmation=1 Simply put, buying a new Tesla is going to cost you more unless you buy one soon.   You would think that reaching the milestone of 200,000 delivered vehicles would be a cause for celebration (and it is), but it also means that the current $7,500 federal tax incentive for electric vehicles is going to be phased out. Tesla is the first EV manufacturer to reach the cut-off point for the incentive and it will be interesting to see how consumers react to the increased pricing. Buy your Model S, X or 3 before January 1st, 2019 and you will still be eligible for the full $7,500 discount. 0 8 0   That amount will halve to $3,750 for the first half of 2019, then be halved to just $1,875 from July 1st until the end of the year. This should mean that demand will increase over the next few months as customers try to take advantage of the higher tax credits. It is worth remembering that the credits apply to delivered vehicles, so a delayed delivery may mean a lower tax credit. The current trade war with China may also affect Tesla's prices going forward. This means that while Model 3 production is finally getting some momentum, customers waiting for the cheaper base versions may not be eligible for the full $7,500 rebate by the time their cars finally get delivered. 0 8 0   There are also several state-based incentives across the U.S. that come with their own terms and conditions and these should still apply to eligible customers. These can range from minor rebates of $1,000, up to a $5,000 tax credit if you happen to live in Colorado. For more information on the various electric vehicle incentives take a look at Tesla’s info page. 0 8 0 8 0 8 0 8 0 8 0 8 0 #Tesla, #ProductivityBoomMeansLowerFederalTaxCredits #ElectricCar, #IndustryNews, #Tesla, #TeslaModelS, #TeslaModelX

The 2018 Hyundai Accent is all new, and brings a big feature list to the small car segment To see how far the automotive industry has truly come in the past ten years, drive a small car. No, not an electric city car or a pint-sized performance rocket, but your average, everyday subcompact economy car. Ten years ago a well-equipped small car came with AM/FM radio with a CD player (!), power windows, height adjustable seats, and perhaps even power locks with a key fob remote. Those kinds of things wouldn’t even make it into a press release these days. 0 19 0 The 2018 Hyundai Accent takes things to an entirely different level again for subcompact ‘economy’ cars, but it’s not just the long list of features, it’s the types of features and the total impression they make in a car that has more presence than its small footprint would suggest and a cabin that is modern and well executed. At the heart of it is a touchscreen infotainment system on a seven-inch display, a system that is brilliant for its simplicity and effectiveness. Press an icon or one of the fixed buttons around the screen and something happens right away, no waiting, no delay, no frustration. That is a luxury I could get used to. 0 19 0 That seven-inch screen is optional, and a smaller five-inch screen is standard, but it’s still a far cry from the pencil-thin digital readouts most affordable cars used to have. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included with all but the base model SE, making your entertainment and communication controls even more familiar and seamless. The touchscreen will likely be the center of attention for entertainment, but your attention should be on the road first, and that is easy with the Accent. The 2018 Accent is one of the most undemanding cars I’ve driven in ages. 0 19 0 Everything is straightforward and familiar, and although the small 1.6-liter four-cylinder only makes 130 hp and 119 lb-ft of torque, and while less powerful than its predecessor, that is generous for this class and the car weighs 2,679 pounds at most (2,502 with the manual transmission), so it gets going from stoplights with decent pep. However, the more speeds climb, the more it struggles, and it’s not a car you’d call fast, especially with the six-speed automatic transmission we drove. The manual might give you a bit more jump, but the automatic is also seamless, with a conventional shifter that will take no time to get used to, and would make the commute a breeze. 0 19 0 The manual used to always be the frugal option with a lower cost of entry and lower running costs, but the automatic now holds a slight edge in efficiency. The EPA rates the automatic at 28 mpg in city driving, 38 on the highway and 32 combined, with the manual transmission one mpg less efficient in both highway and combined. During my week of suburban shuttling and family duty, we averaged an okay but not great 27.7 mpg, although one highway drive yielded a decent 35 mpg. The 1.6 is the o
