Top Gear visits the farm for next Stig

http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/29/top-gear-visits-the-farm-for-next-stig/Top Gear visits the farm for next StigFiled under: , , ,

A Stig who's identity isn't a secret? Why, that just won't do, will it? As you might expect, then, Top Gear presenters Clarkson, Hammond and May are hot on the trail of a replacement Stig, and they've apparently found just the place: a farm. And not just any farm... a farm where Stigs are cultivated, no less.

Clarkson has reportedly found a perfect candidate who will be unveiled at the Top Gear Live event at Earl's Court in London next week. It's not known whether this new Stiggy will be the final model used for the next series of episodes, leaving only one real question left that still needs answering: What color will the next Stig be?

We vote pink. Sabine, anyone?

BMW M3 Competition Package Fire Orange is only for Japan

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/egmcartech/~3/d_WxNyeKhvQ/BMW M3 Competition Package Fire Orange is only for JapanBMW M3 Competition Package Fire Orange The Japanese are known for producing reliable, affordable, practical cars. That doesn't mean, however, that they can't appreciate a good thing when they see it. Following up BMW's release of the red Tiger M3 in China, the German automaker has released the Competition Fire Orange in the Land of the Rising Sun.In addition to the distinctive orange alluded to in the name, the M3 recieves new 19 inch wheels, with blacked out kidney grills, chrome exhaust tips, and hood air intakes. That air is going to a special version of the 420 bhp V8 that normally powers M3s, and will be assisted by the dual clutch transmission BMW uses in its M series cars.Tack on the carbon fiber on the exterior mirros and the carbon fiber interior trim, and this currently unpriced special model is certain to be a hit- even if it's not what we normally…

2011 Subaru WRX STI vs Robot Spider - Click above to watch video after the jump
Needless to say, we're already fans of the 2011 WRX STI. Subaru, in turn, is apparently a fan of 80's pop band A-Ha and their breakthrough video for Take On Me. A new ad for the sporty Japanese sedan shows car versus robot spider duking it out in sketchbook form. The ad touts the WRX STI as "pure performance", while the 305 horsepower turbocharged boxer and symmetrical all-wheel drive system are clearly useful in fleeing a fate of mechanized death.

Check out the ad after the jump, as well as the A-Ha video for a refresher on life in 1985. Thanks for the tip, Kevin!

Bugatti Veyron vs. BMW S1000 RR - Which is fastest?

Bugatti Veyron vs. BMW S1000 RR - Which is fastest?: "Filed under: , , , , ,


Car guys insist that their four-wheeled machines are as fun as any motorcycle. The two-wheeled, leather-clad bike folks laugh at this notion, then scream off into the twisties at 9,000 rpm. The discussion can go back and forth until both parties are blue in the face. Inside Line decided it would be fun to put two powerful examples, one car and one motorcycle, to the test. These aren't just run-of-the-mill vehicles, either: In one corner is a 2010 Bugatti Veyron while in the other sits a 2010 BMW S 1000 RR. The battleground? Forest roads around Molsheim, France


The Veyron obviously has the power advantage, thanks to its quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,001 horsepower. The 190-horsepower BMW, however, has a huge weight advantage and the agile bike can get around any Citro├źn-shaped obstacles that it might come across.

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Debuts In Los Angeles

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Debuts In Los Angeles: "It took them so long, but finally Chevrolet confirmed the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible for debut at this year’s Los Angeles Autoshow in November. They’ve even released a picture of the car as a sort of teaser. The other fact that’s confirmed is the starting price of the car which is $30,000 USD, a bargain really for something this cool. The engine lineup and other specs are yet to be announced.

2011 MINI Countryman WRC

2011 MINI Countryman WRC: "Mini is the third company to reveal their WRC car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, and they have the most interesting car of them all. As you know in 2011 Mini will make a big comeback to the world rally championship after many years of absence. But they are not coming back with the original Mini, they’ve decided to prepare a rally version of the new Countryman crossover vehicle.This Mini too, like all the other 2011 WRC cars, is powered by a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder Di turbo-charged engine. This unit has proved to be up to the task during the first shakedown in Portugal. it, in its standard form, develops 135 kW / 184 bhp, and accelerates the MINI Cooper S Countryman from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds. For the Mini WRC it should be able of putting out around 300 bhp.The power transmission takes place via an Xtrac 6-speed, sequential gearbox. For its outings on the rally stages, the MINI Countryman chassis has been fitted with a roll cage developed by Pro…
