Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the 2015 New York International Auto Show as the brand prepares to launch its completely reimagined 10th-Generation Civic models beginning in the fall of 2015. With a sharper focus on spirited performance and class-leading versatility, the new Civic lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the first U.S. model to apply new VTEC® Turbo engines from the company's Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrain series.
Last week, this poor little McLaren 12C bore the brunt without any fault of its driver. It was actually being transported on a semi-truck to get some repairs done. But, the semi-truck got hit by a train which left the Mac mangled in a ditch with around $50,000 worth of damage. After getting stuck on the tracks in Orange Park, Florida, the trailer driver informed 911 warning them he was about to get hit by a train. He pleaded with them to stop the train somehow.
Do you remember Jon Olsson´s Audi RS6 which took part as his personal support vehicle in last year´s Gumball 3000 ? Back then it was already a fair bit more than your standard RS6. Not only did it make 700hp, but it has also been wrapped in a classic “Jon Olsson Style” swedish camo wrap, the suspension has been lowered and a very loud Milltek Straight Pipe Exhaust System has been applied.
