Audi A5 “Rhythm Of Lines” TV Ad

Not exactly the ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ themed ad we were expecting from Audi. Dubbed “Rhythm of lines”, the artistic and rather pansy for our taste, commercial begins with a swiveling line moving along the screen forming various shapes before joining a bunch of bright coloured swirling lines, “dancing” to the rhythms of classical music. In the end, the lines form the shape of Audi’s new A5

Man Gets Even With Cops By Paying Parking Fine With Dog Poo!

If you thought you had a bad day at the office, I’m sure you can sympathize with the poor employee at the Austin Police Department that opened an enveloped filled with dog poo and a check for a parking ticket. Apparently, the man that was outraged at the fine he received when he parked his car outside of his residence and decided it was time for revenge. The women that opened that envelope

Watch Out: Popular Car-Jack Method In The UK Gets You Pawned

Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the most effective as they’re the ones you least expect to happen. In this video we see how a high number of vehicles in the U.K. have been stolen via car-jacking. Before you say “what else is new”, note: the car-jackings occur without the use of any sort of weapon or threat. How? Two people, usually a man and a woman, go to see a private-sale car they found on

2008 Peugeot 308 Snapped Totally Uncovered

Let down. That’s how we feel after seeing the first totally unmasked pictures of the upcoming Peugeot 308. If we didn’t know better we’d say that the car we’re looking at is nothing more than a 207 after a couple of nights on the Procrustean bed and an intermediate “butt to butt” contact with a Nissan Tiida. Judging from the images, we bet that most people will either pass the 308 for the current

2008 Saab 9-3 Aero “Scooped”

Logical. Since Saab was rather parsimonious with the official press kit including only a handful of front view pictures it was bound to happen again. Caught in a parking lot in Sweden by a reader of “”, we get a better view of the sedan’s rear quarters with the crystal clear tail-lamps and the redesigned bumper. According to the Swedish car registry, the car we’re looking

Nanjing Restarts MG Production In The U.K.

A couple of months after Nanjing presented the first Chinese built MG sport cars and sedans back in March and the British carmaker’s new owner announced that it’ll end the Longbridge plant’s two-year production hiatus with the assembly of the first MG TFs on May 29. It should be noted that Nanjing Auto doesn’t specify whether they’ll fully build the TFs in Longbridge or just assemble the roadster

Videos: Nurburgring Sideways With A 640Hp Mercedes CL55 MKB

In its most simple definition, drifting is when a driver gets a car sideways for an extended period of time. Aimless? Yes. Fun? Definitely. Easy? Certainty not. Drifting is an art form if you will, acquiring plenty of technique on the drivers part. And by God, German drifting champion, Werner Gusenbauer has the word “technique” engraved on both his hands. Gusenbauer took a 640Hp MKB

GM To Build Corsa Based Opel & Chevrolet Compact SUV’s In Antwerp

BMW X3 E21: Based On ’83 Chevy Blazer Chassis!

Wait a minute, I just had an epiphany; this ain’t no X3, it’s a SC3 (Sports Crossover). Yeah, that sounds so much better. This “Ultimate Redneck Machine” was created via a shotgun marriage between a 1981 E21 320i body and a 1983 Chevy Blazer 4×4 Chassis, complete with a 2.8 V6 Automatic with overdrive trans powertrain and 33×15 Tires. Could be yours for a mere $2.500 / €1.850. If anything, you’ll

DeLorean With A 300Hp Mazda Rotary Engine

Did you know that John Z. DeLorean’s original plans for the iconic DMC-12 included a Citroen Wankel rotary engine, dubbed Comotar (developed by NSU and Citroën)? Of course, that never happened and the DeLorean ended up with an underpowered 130 bhp V6 engine jointly developed by Renault, Peugeot and Volvo. However, some lads decided to hook on DeLorean’s original vision and replace the ill-fated

Real Madrid Players Test Out New Audi Models

Promotion: communicating with the public in an attempt to influence them toward buying your products and/or services. Now, why the hell would someone be tempted to buy the new A5 just because they saw David Beckham behind its wheel, beats me. I’m not saying that Audi’s promo tactics are pointless -well, unless you support Barcelona or Atletico Madrid, that is. Heck, we’re posting/promoting it so

Honda Attacks Canadian Government Over Low Consumption Rebate Policy

For those of you how have might missed the story, the Canadian Government issued earlier this year an eco-rebate system that provides a refund of up to $2,000 for cars that have an avg, consumption of less than 6.5-liters per 100km, but nothing to those above that line. Honda’s Fit (Jazz in Europe) boasts an avg. consumption of 6.6-litres per 100km while Toyota’s Yaris achieves a 6.4-liters
