Audi Deutschland showcases A3 Cabrio with six doors
I'd say it's as rigid as a wet pancake...

2017 Audi A5 Coupe renders show predictable design refinement
Those rear lights look like the last generation of the Saab 9-5! http://zombdrive.com/images/saab-95-2897.jpg

2016 Lexus GS facelift arrives at Pebble Beach with new 200t rear-wheel drive version [video]
It makes a huge difference. Here in Ireland, the annual road tax of a non-hybrid GS (based on CO2) would be €2350 (but its not sold here due to the high tax band), while the tax on the Hybrid 450H is only €270, representing a saving of over €2000/year. Thats a big difference!

2016 Lexus GS facelift arrives at Pebble Beach with new 200t rear-wheel drive version [video]
Initially I wasn't a fan of Lexus's new design language, but after seeing a couple of new IS300H's in the flesh I'm beginning to warm to them. I think that this new GS looks good and aggressive from the front, but the angular grill and lights are a bit inconsistent with the side profile, which is smooth and rounded. A few added creases on the doors would really add a lot.

Next generation Toyota Supra and Nissan 370Z rendered
The headlights and bumper looks like a typical 1990's Jap import. Looks extremely dated

Tesla asking 210 USD for its new Model S diecast models
What is this? A car for ants? It needs to be at least 4 times this size… ;)

New MX-5 owner crashes his car right after delivery, Mazda replaces it
For a MX-5 which was rear-ended by a F150, the rear damage seems extremely low down. I would have thought a F150 would easily drive over an MX-5!

Ford previews their camera-based Front Lighting System [video]
Oh I know, its not a lot at all, but its still more than "No roundabouts" ;)

Hate to be pedantic here but there are over 3,500 roundabouts in the states...

Next-gen Mercedes CLS to ditch Shooting Brake version
I have, only twice though.

Next-gen Mercedes CLS to ditch Shooting Brake version
I like the MB shooting brakes, however, they're not very well focused on their target market. Generally people who buy estate cars buy them for practicality, not aesthetics. And having a sloping roofline and narrow rear-hatch makes it difficult to load/carry large items. An E-class estate is far more practical and cheaper too!

Lotus announces Evora 400 Roadster and 4-Eleven; details SUV
I think what Olivier is trying to say is why invest so heavy in lightweight body panels and then lump a heavy V6 into it, when instead a forced induction 4-pot can provide the same power for less weight.

2015 Fiat 500 facelift goes official with subtle cosmetic revisions
It's funny, when the 500 first came out, I wasn't a fan, but lately they have really grown on me. Even 2008 500's look fresh, while the first gen BMW mini is starting to show its age

2016 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 Avant officially introduced with up to 120 kg weight loss [videos]
It's like they took the front and rear LED's off an Insignia and attached them to the current A4. Very innovative Audi...

MTM Audi A1 Nardo Edition is the ultimate pocket rocket with 450 PS and €120,000 price tag
I'm struggling to believe this thing hit 201mph with 437ps. I'd agree its quick because its light, but at those speeds, aerodynamics play a huge role. The standard A1 isn't exactly slippery with a drag coefficient of 0.32, while that massive wing would only increase this figure. If slippery supercars struggle to reach the 200mph barrier, I just can't believe that this does...

Possible Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG official image emerges along with up to 400 PS output
I like how these horsepower wars are going down between MB and Audi. Mk1 RS3 - 333bhp, then Mk1 A45AMG 360bhp. New RS3 then comes out with 367bhp. So MB increases standard bhp to 381bhp. Brilliant!

New generation Vauxhall Astra priced from £15,295
Jeeze Aygo, what is with you correcting me all the time? Road tax, motor tax, carbon emission tax are all essentially the same thing - an annual tax to use the roads...

New generation Vauxhall Astra priced from £15,295
Yes, this is true. Diesels produce an ungodly amount of NOx's and particulate matter compared to petrols. But 91MPG is still better from a consumers point of view, where diesel is cheaper than petrol at the pump. Also, where annual road tax is based on CO2 emissions, it also suits the consumer to drive diesel.

Those MPG and CO2 stats for the diesel are very impressive. They're even better than the Prius and Auris Hybrid!

I like how the tachometer lights up everything below the needle, reminds me of night-mode in the old Saabs

Real-world test shows Lamborghini Huracan bests its official fuel economy by 11%
Yes, but fuel economy is the opposite of fuel consumption. I said fuel consumption, not economy...

Good Guy Lamborghini, overestimates fuel consumption rather than underestimates it.

Is that a chrome strip that runs from the headlights the whole way around the car? What's that about?

Opel Astra K officially unveiled with up to 200 kg weight loss (22 pics)
As a metallurgist, I can confirm that "lightweight" steels do in fact exist. They're very different to typical steels used in say RSJ's. By adding a both Aluminium and Nickel to typical steel, a fine, less dense, intermetallic compound forms, adding both strength, and decreasing the density of the steel. Now, you're totally correct in saying that the density of any kind of steel is greater than Aluminium, however, these ultra high strength steels are stronger than Al-based alloys. Thus, when making things like axles and chassis', less material is required. This means that yes, these steels are denser than Al-based steels, but because less material is required, the overall weight of the final components balance out. While these steels are cheaper to produce than Al-counterparts, meaning cost savings of the finalised product too. Sorry for the long comment!

Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 could get 5-cylinder turbo engine
I wonder is it the same engine they're developing in the the Golf R420? Never thought I'd see the day where a Golf and a Lambo share the same engine. And I hope this day never comes!

Audi Q8 officially confirmed for 2019 launch
Audi's nomenclature must really annoy people who have OCD. The A4, A6, A8 are standard bodies, and the A5 and A7 are coupes, fair enough. But the A3 isn't a coupe, while the A3 coupe is essentially called the TT. Then, on the Q range, the odd and even numbers are reversed, where odd numbers are standard bodies (Q3, Q5 and Q7) while the coupe SUV's are going to be even numbers? Oh dear oh dear...

Volkswagen Golf R420 spied for the first time
Was just thinking the same thing, although that colour is a bit similar to the last gen Golf R32 too!
