The Mini Clubman’s 2,860-Pound Hitch is Rated R

Mini Clubman Hitch Pixelated, Image Source: Mini

Mini, the British brand built atop the idea of British fashionability, has been incredibly style conscious ever since BMW brought it back from the depths of English oppression. Its iconic Cooper still wears a silhouette that harkens back to the original, but offers modern safety equipment and enough room for life-sized humans. You can order the Union Jack placed on virtually any body panel. And those center-mounted speedometers — as much as they put Flava Flav on notice — were a charming touch, if completely useless.

Yet, posh Britons are a fairly easy bunch to embarrass. For example, flatulence is met with mortified exclamations of “My word!” before said flatulator escapes to another room to make tea.

So, with that in mind, how the hell did the Clubman’s tow hitch make it past the censors?

Yup … there it is. Introducing the Clubman: the new compact from Mini that’s incredibly excited to tow your next load. Truck Nutz not included.

This image was pulled directly off the Mini press site. I’m sure from any other angle it looks just peachy. But, what is seen cannot be unseen.

Musk Cracks the Whip on Tesla Production, Experts Say ‘Get Real’

Tesla HQ

Everyone and their 90-year-old great aunt knows that Tesla is putting all of its might into reaching a volume target of 500,000 vehicles in 2018, but more voices are now calling CEO Elon Musk’s timeline impossible.

Musk wants high-volume production to start in less than two years, but suppliers tell Reuters that the accelerated target is a pipe dream. Will delays in parts sourcing and other nitty-gritty issues throw cold water on Tesla’s plans (and customers’ Model 3 ownership dreams)?

In the past, Musk said he wants at least 100,000 Model 3 vehicles out the door by the end of 2017, and plans to raise (and spend) $2 billion to see that it happens. There are 373,000 Model 3 reservations to satisfy, as well as boosted Model S and Model X demand.

Not so fast, say a number of people in the know.

The Reuters report cites auto production consultant Ron Harbour of Oliver Wyman, who claims the assembly machinery parts could take up to 18 months to source and install. If the full 18 months are used up just getting the not-yet-finalized Model 3’s assembly line in order, it means production wouldn’t start until November 2017.

Industry forecaster Jeff Schuster of LMC Automotive called Musk’s goal “implausible,” pointing to issues in battery procurement.

Musk plans to source batteries from his massive Nevada Gigafactory, which is currently under construction. Any delay at the Gigafactory will hamper production, regardless of whether the assembly line is ready to go.

The materials that make up lithium-ion batteries are somewhat scarce, meaning there could be a limit on the pace of battery production, says Sam Fiorani of AutoForecast Solutions.

Musk plans to pour more cash into the Gigafactory, but a battery savior might gallop to his rescue with more money. Today, Panasonic announced it would speed up its planned $1.6 billion investment in the factory if Musk asks for it.

There’s no end to the skepticism surrounding Tesla’s production target, but many Musk naysayers also give a grudging benefit of a doubt to the man who can land a rocket upright on a ship.

BMW M4 Competition Sport Set For Limited Run In Spain

2017 BMW M4 Competition

The list of cool things native to Spain, topped by Jamón ibérico, La Liga and Ibiza, grows a little longer with the introduction of BMW’s newest addition to their M4 lineup, the M4 Competition Sport Edition. Limited to a run of just 60 units, Spain is the only market that will receive the middle-child of the M4 model range, sandwiched between the standard M4 and track-focused M4 GTS.

In essence, the BMW M4 Competition Sport appears to be a slightly less frenetic version of the BMW M4 GTS — a diet M4 GTS if you will — perfect for deep-pocketed customers who crave a little more flamboyance, just a few ticks more of performance, and occasionally require the use of their rear seats.

BMW M4 Competition Sport

A modest increase of 25-hp via tuning of the M4’s 3.0-liter S55 twin-turbo inline-six means the M4 CS now makes a total of 450-hp, with torque remaining unchanged from the standard M4 at 405lb-ft. In comparison to the M4 GTS, which with the help of water injection makes 500-hp, the increased output may seem insignificant, but note the GTS has a much narrower powerband than the CS, needing to be revved all the way up to 4,000rpm before max torque is available. The CS still produces peak torque at 1,850rpm, a figure which can be translated to read: “usable power.”

And though the extra horsepower does command some recognition, it’s the exterior touches to the M4 CS that make it worthy of a limited edition moniker. At the corners, the CS gets the same M star-spoke “666” style wheels as the M4 GTS, which are polished and forged — without the Acid Orange finish unique to the GTS. Behind the M light-alloy wheels BMW has equipped carbon-ceramic brakes, which are claimed to reduce unsprung mass by 14lbs.

BMW M4 Competition

As we slowly make our way up the M4 CS, we find a generous use of carbon fiber, employed for the front splitter, side skirts, and rear diffuser. These M Performance accessories are matched with the mirror housings and fixed rear spoiler, both finished in CFRP, the later weighing just 3.5lbs.

The M4 CS will only be available in three color combinations, using custom colors and trims from BMW’s Individual line. These include a Brilliant White exterior with a Cohiba fine-grain leather interior, San Marino Blue on San Marino Blue, and Jerez Black with BMW Individual Goldbraun seats and instrument panel.

BMW M4 Competition Sport Interior

Orders are currently being accepted for the BMW M4 Competition Sport Edition at a price of 132,900 euros (~$151,838 US). US customers who feel left out can choose to option their standard M4s with the $5,500 competition package, which comes with the same retuned 450-hp engine and the same 20” star-spoke M light-alloys as the M4 CS. The package also includes staggered tires, different seats (coupe only) and an M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes accented by high-gloss Shadow Line black exterior trim bits.

You won’t be in the limited edition club, but you can opt for a manual transmission if you choose to go this route, unlike with the M4 CS which only gets the dual-clutch automatic.

Aston Martin DBS vs Ferrari California

The Aston Martin DBS and the Ferrari California are a pair of cars designed for the great art of touring – two vehicles that tease with the promise of wind in your hair, long straight roads and endless sunshine, but which is better? Both cars hark back to the golden age of tourers – the Ferrari brings memories of the 365 California of 1966, while the DBS’ ancestor proudly roamed the roads of the same era with its bullish, muscular frame. Their descendants were both released in the late 00’s, 2007 for the Aston and 2008 for the California, making you think that someone, somewhere wanted the automotive contest of their fathers to once again rage free on the highways of the world.

Aston Martin DBS

Aston Martin DBS For Sale

The DBS sits in a similar frame to the DB9, packing a 5.9L V12 under the hood, whilst the comparatively svelte California is powered by a 4.3L V8. When it comes to the all-important facts and figures of performance, the Ferrari hits 60 in 3.8 seconds, fast enough to turn all but the neatest coiffure from high style to high times, half a second faster than its British cousin, which it also edges out at top speed – 193 to 191 MPH respectively. The California has a true sense of composure however, the speeds you hit never feel as all-consuming as they do on some other cars. Depending on your personality, speed demon or weekend cruiser, this could fall either into the pro or con category for you.

To drive, they both fit neatly into the GT category, but at different ends of the spectrum. The California feels comfortable on long journeys while maintaining a balance and ease of driving. The DBS on the other hand is more wild, with its traction control earning its pay handily on any high-speed drive, with the Aston having a tendency to go from an easy drive to a thrill-ride pretty quickly. It’s fun, and never feels anything less than fast but the California is a more balanced ride.

So the California wins round one, but when you think Aston Martin, the idea of sophistication, of design, of hand-stitched leather (how could we forget?) is never far from our minds, so let’s take a look at the car’s design and aesthetics. As mentioned above, the DBS’ body is broadly similar to that of the DB9, with a few additions to give a more aggressive, racing look, such as the deep cut vents you’ll find in the hood. Inside, you’ll find the same plush luxury you’ve come to expect – immaculate leather coats the surfaces, with magnesium alloy paddle ratio-selectors sitting comfortably behind the wheel. It’s inestimably Aston, while in some other cars it could come across as pretentious, in the DBS it just feels right.

Ferrari California

The California’s design has the classic Ferrari look, with swollen and muscular haunches sitting above the wheel-arches, and retro-style vents on the wings. From a cursory look at the interior, you’d feel like you were playing a game of ‘spot the difference’ with the Aston. Once again, beautifully-stitched leather abounds, but on closer inspection, the California lacks some of the class that can be found in the DBS, making up for it with increased driver comfort.

On the price front, a DBS with little mileage will set you back around $140K, with a California rolling up at around the same price, occasionally falling to around $120K.

The final verdict – the DBS puts on a very strong show, with a large, powerful engine pushing what feels like a mobile clubhouse to great speeds and providing a fun ride, but the California is able to just edge ahead on comfort and speed. It provides a more balanced package, delivering the traditional Ferrari blend of aesthetics and performance that is what led many of us to love cars in the first place.

Engine swap-a-bration: Concorso Italiano highlights once-repowered Ferraris

Share

For all their vaunted status and multiple millions they sell for these days, Ferraris were once used cars – yesterday’s news with an engine that in many cases proved a liability rather than another part of the mystique. So while an engine swap in any other car’s past might make for a curiosity, engine-swapped Ferraris qualify for a class all their own at this year’s Concorso Italiano.

As Randy Cook, author of two books devoted specifically to engine-swapped Ferraris – Bowtie Ferraris and Blue Oval, et al, Ferraris – noted, not every vintage Ferrari owner likes to admit that his car once relied on something as common as a Chevrolet or Ford V-8 for power. “Some people do, though some don’t want the notoriety,” he said. “Even when it’s public knowledge, some don’t want it to be publicized.”

Yet Cook has documented 99 instances in which former owners ditched the original Ferrari engine for one either more powerful, more reliable, or more easily serviced: 76 of them using Chevrolet engines, 14 using Ford engines, four using Buicks, two using Offenhausers, and one each using a Chrysler, Mercedes, and Maserati engine. Pretty much all of them occurred in the mid-Fifties through late 1960s.

Cook said he believes still more engine-swapped Ferraris remain undocumented. “My guess is that every one that went to South America had an American engine in it at one point,” he said.

Generally, Cook said, owners of street-driven Ferraris chose to repower their cars following a failure of the original engine. As for Ferraris dedicated to racing, about half got repowered following an engine failure, the rest because another engine was cheaper to maintain or because another engine proved more competitive.

“For example, they could still run the same class with a 5.0-liter Chevrolet engine that they previously ran with the original 3.0-liter Ferrari engine,” Cook said.

Ferrari serial number 0235.

Noteworthy examples of Ferraris that once relied on something other than Ferrari power include 0666, the first 250 Testa Rossa, which famously sold for $16 million five years ago (and which had a Ford V-8 installed in the mid-1960s); and 0235, a 212 Inter Pinin Farina cabriolet displayed at Paris and Brussels when new (and which later received a Chevrolet V-8).

Almost every engine-swapped Ferrari returned to Maranello power during the price bubble of the late 1980s and early 1990s, largely thanks to collector Dick Merritt, who stockpiled at least two dozen removed Ferrari engines during the years prior. Cook said that, to his knowledge, only one Ferrari remains with its swapped engine still underhood: serial number 1175, the 1959 250 GT Series 1 Pinin Farina coupe that he once owned and that inspired the Concorso class when Tom McDowell spotted it at last year’s event.

Perhaps due to the reluctance of current-day Ferrari owners to address the engine-swap history of their cars, Cook said he and McDowell are still searching for examples to fill the class. Among those slated to appear are the above mentioned serial number 0235 and serial number 0438, a 1954 500 Mondial once powered by a 320hp Corvette V-8.

Concorso Italiano takes place August 20 at Black Horse Golf Course in Monterey Bay, California. For more information, visit Concorso.com.

Four-Links – electric Ferrari, electric cabover, GMC Twin Six, fastback Grand National

Share

Servicing a Ferrari can sometimes cost as much as an entirely new car. And then there’s their apparent propensity to catch fire. But out of adversity comes opportunity, and Eric Hutchinson embraced the former to create the latter when he bought a fire-damaged 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS and converted it to electric power using three AC51 HPEVS electric motors good for a combined 465 horsepower. Engine Swap Depot has the details.

fourlinks_NissanEV4

* Another unlikely place for an electric drivetrain? A cabover truck. Yet that’s just what Nissan attempted in 1973 with its EV4-P and EV4-H concept trucks, as we learned from Japanese Nostalgic Car this week.

fourlinks_TwinSix

* A more typical cabover engine choice might be the GMC Twin Six V-12 of the 1960s, one of the last attempts to wring as much power out of gasoline engine packaging for big trucks before the era of diesel took over. Mac’s Motor City Garage has more on the unusual engine.

fourlinks_AeroGN

* Speaking (slightly) of appropriateness, how was it ever appropriate that Buick named its Grand National after the stock car racing series but it was Chevrolet and Pontiac’s chassis-mates to the Grand National that got the aerodynamic aids for stock car racing? As one of our readers pointed out earlier this week, one intrepid Grand National owner embarked on a project to rectify that by adding a Monte Carlo Aerocoupe’s rear glass to his GN and making it look factory.

fourlinks_tr6vr6

* Finally, there’s probably no more inspiration to swapping a Volkswagen’s VR6 into a Triumph TR6 than the nameplay, but as we see at Stance is Everything, at least one hot rodder went ahead and built a VR6-powered TR6 anyway.

Ramapo Concours d’Elegance announces 2016 classes

Share

The inaugural Ramapo Concours d’Elegance took place on the campus of Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey, last June 6. As with the Cars and Coffee events that inspired it, the show was a success, raising money to support both Ramapo College and the Hackensack University Medical Center. With the debut event now in the rearview mirror, the Ramapo Concours has announced its classes for 2016.

2015 Ramapo Concours d'Elegance

The Micro Car Class carries over from 2015.

Unlike more traditional concours events, which repeat popular classes and designate a few special or tribute categories each year, the Ramapo Concours features (nearly) all new classes for its sophomore year. Since BMW’s U.S. headquarters is in nearby Woodcliff Lake, and since BMW is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016, the Bavarian brand is featured heavily in this year’s festivities, with classes for Rare BMW Models; Early BMW Motorcycles; BMW 2002 – A Brand Icon; and BMW M Cars – New and Vintage. The show’s next class, Micro Cars, will likely be populated with more than a few BMW Isettas, the bubble car (built under license from Italy’s Iso) that kept BMW in the black in the mid to late 1950s. The Micro Car class is the only carry-over from 2015.

2015 Ramapo Concours d'Elegance

2015’s Shelby-Powered Class will be replaced by 2016’s 60s American Muscle.

Rounding out the 2016 event will be 60s American Muscle; Retired Race Cars (open to all years and models); Rally Cars; Lamborghini (all years and models); and Ferrari (all years and models). Each class will be judged for first, second and third place, and additional awards will include the Student Judges Award, the Presenting Sponsor Award, the President’s Award, and, of course, Best in Show.

The 2016 Ramapo Concours d’Elegance will take place on Saturday, June 11, followed by a scenic driving tour of the area on Sunday, June 12, ending at the Thayer Hotel on the grounds of the West Point Military Academy. The tour is open to all, though tickets (which include a catered lunch) must be purchased in advance.

Why the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan A Better Sport

There is good news for the next calendar year: The next-gen Lamborghini Huracan will offer that RWD experience. A departure from the first Huracan, which offered AWD, the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 will mark a return to the rear. Why does it matter? As with any new model, even the most pragmatic of test cycles cannot predict everything and every machine can be improved.
[embedded content]The clip above is the official introduction of the Lamborghini Huracan.

The Lamborghini Huracan 610-4 stepped in to fill the rather large shoes of the outgoing Gallardo—the social and non-threatening offering. That is not to say that the Gallardo is not a beast, it simply means it lies somewhere beneath the more extreme brand offerings. The Huracan was developed to serve in that capacity, beneath the more aggressive and powerful Lamborghini Aventador and Veneno machines. Let us take a look at how the next-gen Huracan will measure up:

The 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 at a glance:

  • While the AWD LP 610 car is certainly nothing worthy of a scoff, some drivers found it irritating on the track. The return to a RWD corrects the issues of using an AWD on the track, giving more of the decision-making power back to the driver and away from the computer. Track braking was also a problem area.
  • The RWD LP 580-2 delivers the solution to these woes via the capacity to nail the proper performance figures in admirable times while providing that distinctive and historic Lamborghini driving experience.
  • She hits the 0-60 mile per hour jump a shaving slower than her predecessor, and packs the same healthy 5.2-liter V10 tweaked to grip the back.
  • Further adaptations include the ever-so-slight grill changes. She is also 73 pounds lighter on her wheels thanks to the reduction in equipment feeding the front.

2016 Lamborghini HuracanThe first-gen Lamborghini Huracan in her regular attire.

2016 Lamborghini HuracanThe first-gen Lamborghini Huracan dressed for success. 

Overall, not only is the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 a return to RWD, she is around $30k less than the AWD, making it a win-win.

Ferraris of the Future On Show As Design Contest Heats Up

content_marketing_opi_photo594504-09-2013

The future of Ferrari sports cars has been on show with artist impressions of what models of 2025 might look like, according to CarScoops.com.

Designer Christophe Jourd’hui presented his visualized concept, the Ferrari ‘Getto’, to reflect his views on how the supercars of tomorrow might look. The concept was submitted as part of a Ferrari design competition, but has already attracted strong interest online from Ferrari fans.


Andrei Nedelea of Carscoops.comsaid that the design worked because it had such a strong concept. “The idea behind the car is the maximization of the sensation the driver gets when behind the wheel, through the use of a floating cockpit, which is sustained by chassis cross members from above, as well as jacks mounted in key points on the structure underneath it.”

The Getto, named after the Italian word for ‘Jet’, resembles a more space age but surprisingly familiar-shaped vehicle. While it has its own distinct shape, the Getto draws much of its design influences from the heritage and style of Ferrari models past.

From first glance at the plans, you can tell this car is fine-tuned for speed. Its low center of gravity would certainly give it a kick. Clearly not the best choice for those with a large family to taxi around, the Getto is all about speed and sophistication – even if it does look a little cramped.

The concept depicts a vivid red Getto – instantly striking with its classic Ferrari look. The sleek curves of the chassis reveal a much more aerodynamic approach to the design. It is unlikely the model will ever go into production, but some Ferrari fans are already calling for a concept prototype to be built.

Ferrari are currently experiencing weaker than usual sales in its key markets including the EU, China and the US. At present, only Japan is holding up in its demand for new models. Analysts have linked this directly to the worldwide recession, and the company is banking for fortunes to pick up when its customers return to spending mode.

With new ideas like the Getto and the competition that inspired it, Ferrari are hoping to appeal to the next generation of customers as early as possible.

Ferrari is operated by the Fiat Group, a company which operates a number of different car brands including Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Chrysler.

Lynch Chrysler Jeep Dodge, which sell some Fiat Group vehicles, said that Ferraris would always enjoy a special status amongst new car buyers.

“Ferraris have a certain glamour. But underneath the elegant chassis lies the same quality, reliable engineering that powers Chrysler. The future for Ferrari will see a continuation of new models that dazzle and impress, scoring equally on visual appeal as performance.”

Don’t expect to buy the Getto from your local Ferrari dealer any time soon. But as the company continues to innovate and change its approach, the designs it unveils will continue to play a role in the future of supercar design.

Tips to Host an Outstanding Ferrari Birthday Party

Ferrari Birthday Party

Whether you’re throwing a birthday party for your luxury vehicle obsessed child or turning 40 and celebrating the purchase of your next Ferrari, throwing a Ferrari themed birthday party is perfect for people of all ages. Themed birthday parties are awesome on all fronts, and especially awesome if that theme is based around one of the most incredible car brands in history. Not only is a Ferrari themed birthday fun for everyone, but they’re also easy and affordable to throw, too. It’s easy to make every aspect of your birthday party Ferrari related, and the guests will enjoy the creativity  (not to mention the luxury). If you’re looking for tips on how to throw the most awesome Ferrari birthday party ever, check out below.

Guest Gifts

It doesn’t matter if you’re throwing the party for yourself or for your 10-year-old son, you need to have epic party favors if you’re throwing a Ferrari themed party. While it would be nice to hand all of your guests keys to a brand new ride, unless you were in an original investor in a Fortune 500 company then that probably isn’t possible. Opt to make some custom Ferrari mugs from Minespress.com and customize them to your specifications. Include the date of the birthday party, the name of whoever was celebrating, and some pictures of Ferraris or the Ferrari logo. Mugs are a great gift for anything, and your guests will always remember the day every time they use the mug. For a younger person’s party, some miniature Ferrari models might be a good choice.

Decorations

Having awesome decorations is key to making sure that the Ferrari birthday party you throw is a success. Buying packaged party decorations simply won’t cut it, so you need to get creative. Grab some real racing flags and put them up around your house, and get some posters of Ferraris to put up too. Have some games for your guests and have the decorations be the prizes, so your guests can take them home at the end of the day.

Cake

The cake will be the centerpiece of the birthday party, so do not disappoint! If you can, have a custom cake maker craft the cake. This can be expensive, so if it’s not an option there are more affordable ones. It’s not hard to make an epic Ferrari cake on your own, just search around the web to find some inspiration. Add some “decals” to the cake by putting the date and the name of the birthday person on it. If you aren’t up for making a cake, cupcakes can be a great alternative. If you arrange them creatively, your guests will love the cupcakes.

Food

Standard birthday party food will be great for a Ferrari party, but it’s the arrangement that will make the party stand out. Arrange the food on plates with checkered flags on each entrée, and make sure that you keep the colors standard with the rest of the party. Lots of yellow and red is great; the visualization will make everyone enjoy the party more.

Entertainment

Perhaps at the end of the party everybody is tired and you just want to relax? Well, then, you should head out here and enjoy your favorite TV shows: Watch TV Shows Online FREE no sign up
