2019 Suzuki Jimny Crash Test & Rating
 
02:33
In the frontal offset test, there was insufficient pressure in the driver's airbag to prevent it from 'bottoming out', allowing the head to contact the steering wheel. The score for the head was penalised for the behaviour of the airbag and the displacement of the steering wheel, and protection for this part of the body was rated as marginal. The passenger compartment was extensively deformed in the offset test, especially around the door-frame and the score for the driver's chest was penalised for this unstable collapse. Combined with marginal dummy readings, protection for this body area was rated as weak. Although dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger, structures in the instrument panel and dashboard were thought to pose a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes, and protection was rated as marginal. In the full-width, rigid-barrier impact protection of the head of the rear passenger dummy was rated as weak, based on dummy readings during the test and protection of the chest of both driver and rear passenger was marginal. Tests on the front seats and head restraints showed marginal protection against whiplash injury in a rear impact. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused. However, the Jimny did not qualify for these points as Euro NCAP requires good head restraint performance as a pre-requisite for AEB points. In the frontal offset test, protection of all critical body areas was good except for the necks of both dummies, protection of which was rated as adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was good for all critical parts of the body. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Jimny is designed could be properly installed and accommodated. The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, with poor results recorded at the front of the bonnet and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs but protection of the pelvis was mixed. The AEB system showed weak performance in tests of its pedestrian avoidance in daylight and does not operate in low light. The system cannot react to faster-moving road-users like cyclists.

2018 Subaru XV Crash Test & Rating
 
02:45
The passenger compartment of the XV remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Subaru demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good for all critical body areas. However, the pelvis of the rear passenger dummy slipped below the lap section of the seatbelt. Protection of the pelvis was rated as poor and the score was penalised. Protection was otherwise good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and the XV scored maximum points. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other parts of the body was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit 'Eyesight' autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries are caused, with collisions avoided at all test speeds.

Brabham BT62 Testing
 
01:41
Powering the BT62 is a naturally aspirated 5.4-litre V8 that produces 700bhp and 492lb ft of torque. No official 0-62mph figures have been given, but it’s safe to say that a power-to-weight ratio of 720bhp per tonne should yield impressive results. The car has been designed with rear-wheel-drive only in a deliberate effort to 'challenge and reward the driver in equal measure’. You’re not completely on your own, mind – there are some driver aids such as launch control to help the car get off the line cleanly. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

Kia 7 Speed Double Clutch Transmission
 
04:33
As with Ford, VW, Chrysler, and a growing number of auto brands, Kia has developed a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as a replacement for its current six-speed automatic. The new transmission will start cropping up in global Kia models starting in 2015 with U.S. models receiving it after 2015, though Kia did not specify which models would be first to get it. Compared to the six-speed DCT currently used in the EU-market cee’d models, the new transmission is expected to deliver a fuel-economy improvement of seven percent and a five-percent improvement in 0–62 mph acceleration times. Like most new DCTs, the new transmission features dual dry clutches and two input shafts, allowing for seamless torque delivery between shifts as well as gear-jumping to the optimal ratio, should the driver ask for it. If that was to apply to the current Forte sedan, with its 173-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, for example, that would raise its fuel economy from 24 mpg city/36 highway to about 26/39 while bringing its 7.4-second 0–60 run to about seven seconds flat. We could also see this transmission being a good match as an option for the sexy GT4 Stinger sports car, should that thing ever happen.

2019 Suzuki Jimny Off Road Capabilities
 
04:17
Everything surrounding the driver and front passenger is built for professional use. Crafted for carefree dependability, the instrument panel and surrounding parts have a scratch and stain-resistant grained finish, and the grip and switches are easy to operate so that it can be handled in off-road conditions as well as while wearing gloves. The meters set in cubic housings are always lit up for clear viewing on and off-road, when the vehicle often passes between sunlit and shaded areas. For intuitive operation of the audio system, a Bluetooth®-compatible Smartphone Linkage Display Audio unit with a 7-inch infrared touchscreen is equipped on higher grades. Luggage Space The rear luggage space can be expanded by folding the rear seats, creating a 377 litre*1 luggage space which is 53 litres larger than its predecessor. Flat all the way across, the quarter trims and seats have been carefully designed to increase storage width, and the backs of the rear seats and luggage room floor are coated with plastic*2 for easy dirt/stain removal. Five utility screw holes are available on each side under the quarter windows along with four luggage hook screw holes around the floor area for flexible usage of the luggage space. *1 Measured without luggage box using the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) method. All figures are manufacturer data. *2 Availability depends on vehicle configuration Uncompromising performance Authentic off-roaders must be tough enough to handle the harshest conditions. From its ladder frame structure to its 1.5-litre engine, the all-new Jimny is built for rough-road adventures. But on-road ability was not compromised, with the higher torsional rigidity of the ladder frame providing a more comfortable and solid ride on the road, and newly equipped steering damper on the front suspension minimising steering wheel vibration and kickback. Whether navigating the urban jungle or exploring off the beaten track, the Jimny is sure to satisfy adventurous minds. Off-road capability The Jimny incorporates the four essentials for serious off-roading — a ladder frame, the three angles, 3-link rigid axle suspension with coil spring and part-time 4WD with low range transfer gear. Designed for professionals, it features ALLGRIP PRO*. *ALLGRIP PRO is Suzuki’s 4WD system designed for high off-road ability. The ladder frame structure provides a solid base for suspension components when driving off-road and also helps protect the vehicle body even on bumpy surfaces. For the all-new Jimny, a new “x-member” and two additional cross members have been added for further reinforcement and increased torsional rigidity. The ample approach angle of 37 degrees, ramp breakover angle of 28 degrees and departure angle of 49 degrees allow the Jimny to climb over obstacles and steep hills without scraping its bumpers or underbody. Rigid axle suspensions thrive in bumpy off-road driving. When one tyre is pushed upward by an obstacle, the connected tyre on the other side is pressed downward, giving superior grip on uneven terrain. The Jimny equips the rigid axle suspension on both the front and rear, allowing it to travel even on rough roads. The Jimny features a part-time 4WD system with low range transfer gear, which can be easily switched from 2H (2WD-high gear), 4H (4WD-high gear) and 4L (4WD-low gear) modes by a shift lever directly connected to the transfer gear. Compared to the 4H mode, the 4L mode can transfer more torque to the tyres while in lower gears, for better traction on steep slopes and rough terrain. When two wheels diagonal from each other lose traction, the Jimny’s brake LSD traction control automatically brake the slipping wheels to redistribute torque to the other side and allow the vehicle to gain traction. This system allows the Jimny to escape slippery surfaces as well as bumpy rough roads that vary on the right and left sides. 1.5-litre engine The former 1.3-litre engine is replaced by a 1.5-litre engine in the all-new Jimny. It delivers stronger torque at all rpm than its predecessor, with ample torque at low revolutions enhancing driving performance especially while driving off-road, where low revolution is often needed. Despite the increased displacement, it has smaller overall dimensions than the engine it replaces, with 15% reduced weight, contributing to enhanced fuel efficiency. 5-speed manual transmission and 4-speed automatic transmission The 5-speed manual transmission has optimised gear ratios for the new engine and also offers better fuel efficiency. The shift lever has been redesigned to reduce vibration, and also provides a more solid and direct feeling when changing gears. The 4-speed automatic transmission has also been redesigned to offer less friction and better fuel economy. The shift pattern has been changed from the former gate type to the straight type to simplify operation. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

Reconfigurable Wheel Track & Extreme Travel Suspension By DARPA
 
01:11
Reconfigurable Wheel-Track (RWT) Wheels permit fast travel on hard surfaces while tracks perform better on soft surfaces. A team from Carnegie Mellon University National Robotics Engineering Center (CMU NREC) demonstrated shape-shifting wheel-track mechanisms that transition from a round wheel to a triangular track and back again while the vehicle is on the move, for instant improvements to tactical mobility and maneuverability on diverse terrains. Multi-mode Extreme Travel Suspension (METS) Pratt & Miller’s METS system aims to enable high-speed travel over rough terrain while keeping the vehicle upright and minimizing occupant discomfort. The vehicle demonstrator incorporates standard military 20-inch wheels, advanced short-travel suspension of four-to-six inches, and a novel high-travel suspension that extends up to six feet – 42 inches upward and 30 inches downward. The demonstration in May showed off its ability to tackle steep slopes and grades by actively and independently adjusting the hydraulic suspension on each wheel of the vehicle.

Dodge Challenger Demon vs Toyota Prius With Hellcat Engine Drag Race
 
01:56
Built by American Racing Headers (ARH), the PriuSRT8 keeps the Prius’s basic shell intact but replaces everything else with hardware that can support a 800whp V-8 engine. It has a custom ladder frame, a four-link rear suspension, a nine-inch rear axle, a carbon-fiber driveshaft, a six-speed Tremec manual transmission, and a full roll cage. Standard Demons come with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that cranks out 808 hp, but owners can increase that to 840 hp with the Demon Crate package. So equipped, Dodge claims that the Demon will demolish the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. Weight-saving measures have been taken wherever possible, and even passenger seats are optional. The Demon is a rare piece: the U.S. will only get 3000 units. Video credit: Dodge, Roadkill Nights Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

Porsche 911 901 Number 57 Restoration
 
03:36
The Porsche 901 is a legend. That’s because it was the forerunner of the 911. In the autumn of 1963, Porsche presented the 901 as a show car at the IAA. One year later, Porsche unveiled a production-ready vehicle – but within just a few weeks, the coupé had to be renamed as a result of a trademark dispute. From then on, it was known as the 911. All of the customer vehicles produced up to that point were manufactured as 901 vehicles, but sold as 911 vehicles. For 50 years, the Porsche factory collection had lacked one of these rarities – until August 5, 2014, when a single phone call changed everything. It was on this day that Alexander Klein, Manager Classic Car Collection at the Porsche Museum, received an enquiry from German television station RTL2. He was told that a couple of “barn finds” had been uncovered in the form of two old 911 vehicles. A team filming a docu-soap had found them while salvaging a long-abandoned collection. When they mentioned the number 300 057 in their description of the vehicle, “the penny dropped”, says Alexander Klein. This is the chassis number of one of the first 911 vehicles ever produced, built in autumn 1964 as a Porsche 901. Eleven days later, two experts from the Porsche Museum went to a former farm in Brandenburg to inspect the two vehicles. They first encountered a gold-coloured 911 L from 1968 in a very poor state of repair. At the very back of the barn, for the most part still covered by a thick layer of dust, the two visitors from Zuffenhausen found the remains of a red 911. Both of its front wings were missing and large sections of the vehicle had already been eaten away by rust. Save for the instrument panel, most of the interior consisted of mere fragments. The brakes were seized, and so was the engine. But the chassis number was pristine, and it proved beyond all doubt that the vehicle was an original. One of the museum team’s long-cherished dreams was finally within reach: To have in its collection a 911 from 1964. Time was running out – the car needed to be sold as soon as possible. In order to make the right offer, it was agreed that a detailed inspection should be carried out in Zuffenhausen. Two valuation reports provided by external experts delivered the same verdict, and it was far beyond the seller’s expectations. Porsche paid EUR 107,000 for the red original 911, and EUR 14,500 for the golden 911 L. The latter will remain in exactly the same condition: as an unwashed, living history. The inventory carried out by the two experts revealed that a great deal of work needed to be done to the historically significant 911, henceforth known by the nickname “Number 57”. The engine and transmission were not the original units installed but were of an identical type. Many components were very heavily corroded and unusable. Other parts – such as the inner and outer sills on the right-hand side, as well as the front bumper and its mountings – were missing completely. Things didn’t look much better in the chassis area. All the axle and axle guide mountings on the front and rear axles had been severely affected by pitting corrosion. The two longitudinal beams in the area of the rear axle cross tube had rusted away completely. And these were just a few examples. Nevertheless, the classic vehicle contained a number of details that delighted Kuno Werner, Head of Museum Workshop: “Many of the features only included in the very first models have been preserved in the car”. One example is the leather sleeve around the shift lever, which was only installed in this form during the 901 era. The experienced museum experts were also presented with a number of puzzles during their investigations. For instance, it was only after extensive research that the two square pipes under the seat adjustment system could be identified as a seat raising mechanism that was available from the factory on request. The seats themselves have a history of their own. The Number 57 and the 911 L arrived in Zuffenhausen together with two pallet cages full of parts. In amongst this mish-mash of things were two 911 seats. It had been assumed that they belonged to the Number 57, but the backrests had five “pipes”, which was the name given to the vertically stitched subdivisions of the seat cushion. The first 911 vehicles had seats with six pipes. And the museum experts were surprised to find that the six-pipe seats were fitted in the gold-coloured model from 1968, which Porsche had bought at the same time in Brandenburg.

BMW xDrive All Wheel Drive System Explained
 
03:01
The BMW all-wheel drive system, xDrive, ensures your BMW has the best possible traction at all times, enhancing agility and keeping you safely on track, even on fast bends. xDrive is the permanent all-wheel drive system from BMW: under normal circumstances, it distributes driver power between the front and rear axles in a 40:60 ratio, and changes this figure variably when the road surface or overall driving conditions change. Acting virtually instantaneously and a manner so subtle as to be go virtually unnoticed by the vehicle's occupants, xDrive can direct up to 100% of drive forces to one axle. Enabling the driver to start up effortlessly even on slippery surfaces or steep hills, xDrive routes all power to the axles with the greatest traction. When parking, the system reacts to the need for high manoeuvrability at low speed by opening the clutch completely so the powertrain functions optimally. At the first sign of understeering, drive power to the front axle is reduced. If oversteering is detected, xDrive directs more power to the front axle. Thanks to this dynamic redistribution of power, vehicle stability returns to normal even before the driver notices anything amiss. Driving on a winding road or taking a fast bend in dynamic style is particularly enjoyable with xDrive: you feel as if your BMW is being guided along the curve. xDrive ensures that none of drive power is wasted on a loss of traction: every kilowatt of power is effectively brought to bear on the road. xDrive is regulated by Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and uses information from the latter system’s sensors to monitor road conditions. In addition, brake force courtesy of DSC is used when there is traction difference between the two sides of the vehicle and wheel spin is likely.

Introduced by VisitEngland in 2014, the accolades are available to attractions that are part of the Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme and are allocated through a scoring system based on an annual unannounced assessment. They recognise attractions that ‘go the extra mile to provide a high quality day out.’ With a dedicated team of tour guides, MINI Plant Oxford welcomed well over 21,000 visitors from all over the world last year to see how a new car is built here every 67 seconds. The VisitEngland accolade builds on the TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ awarded to the team in September. Frank Bachmann, Managing Director of MINI Plant Oxford, said: “We’re privileged to welcome so many people to get a closer look at how MINIs are made and our tour guides and staff pride themselves on making those experiences special. Huge congratulations to everyone on the plant tours team - this award is testament to all of their hard work and dedication.” Andra Pirvu, Project Manager for MINI Plant Oxford tours, said: “Achieving a Visit England accolade is something that everyone on the team is extremely proud of. Telling the story of the plant is central to what we do and so to be recognised in the ‘Best Told Story’ category is fantastic news.” MINI Plant tour guide and former plant worker, Terry Stringer, said: “As someone who worked here for so long it’s been fascinating to see how the plant has changed and developed to become such a global success story. We now have many thousands of people from all around the world coming to see us and we try to give them the best experience we possibly can. I guess this award is a recognition of everyone’s work over the past year.” MINI Plant Oxford is a member of VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme, which represents a wide range of tourism experiences across England, from museums and galleries, farm attractions, historic houses and gardens to churches, cathedrals and country parks. In November the plant’s tour was recognised with a VisitEngland ‘Quality Rose Marque’ - a sign that the MINI Plant Oxford tour has been independently assessed and meets the high standards that visitors expect. VisitEngland Director Andrew Stokes said of the accolades: “These attractions offer a warm welcome, unique storytelling, high quality food and drink and unparalleled customer service and rightly deserve these accolades. They provide visitors with amazing experiences and create reasons to travel the length and breadth of the country, increasing the economic benefits of tourism.” Tours of MINI Plant Oxford run Monday to Friday and last just over two hours. There is a maximum of 15 people per group and the minimum age is 10 years old. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

2017 Ford F Series Super Duty Assembly Plant
 
04:27
To help guide the design and engineering of the all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty, Ford connected with customers through a special “Insiders” program to focus on receiving honest feedback from owners who use Ford trucks every day for everything from ranching, to farming and industrial work. Nate Berges, a participant in the Insiders program, owns several Super Duty pickup trucks, in addition to a fleet of chassis cabs for his family’s awning company, of which he is the fourth-generation owner. “Ford trucks are the only trucks I will every buy,” said Berges. “Ford trucks get the job done – period.” Yesterday, Berges had the rare opportunity to watch UAW-Ford employees build his new F-350 at Kentucky Truck Plant, where he was able to drive it off the end of the line. Today he told the employees, “It’s an experience I will never forget.” Berges today joined Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas, Congressman John Yarmuth of Kentucky’s 3rd District, Greg Poet of the UAW National Ford Department and several hundred Ford employees at Kentucky Truck Plant to officially welcome the all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty – now on sale now at Ford dealers across the U.S. The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the toughest, smartest and most capable Super Duty pickup and chassis cab lineup ever. Super Duty is one of the many cars, trucks and utilities that UAW-Ford workers build in the U.S. In fact, Ford builds more vehicles and has more hourly employees in the U.S. than any other automaker. Super Duty is part of F-Series, America’s best-selling truck for 39 years. If you like DPCcars videos please subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 R
 
03:10
Porsche has designed a new customer racer for GT3 series worldwide for 2019 based on the 911 GT3 RS production sports car: the 911 GT3 R. During the development of the up to 404 kW (550 hp)* racing nine-eleven, special attention was paid to particularly efficient aerodynamics, further optimised safety as well as lowering the cost of servicing and spare parts. The lightweight body design of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car featuring intelligent aluminium-steel composite construction has proven to be the ideal basis for the near-production race car. The roof, front hood and fairing, wheel arches, doors, side and tail sections as well as the rear lid and interior trim are made of particularly light carbon-fibre composite material (CFRP). All windows consist of polycarbonate. Powering the new 911 GT3 R is a cutting-edge four-litre flat-six unit which is largely identical to the high-performance production engine of the road-legal 911 GT3 RS. Direct fuel injection, which operates at pressures up to 200 bar, as well as variable valve timing adjustments of the intake and exhaust camshafts ensure a particularly efficient use of fuel. Moreover, compared to its predecessor, the normally-aspirated engine offers significantly better driveability and a broader usable rev range. The engine response is more precise due to six throttle butterflies. Power from the rear engine is transferred to the 310-mm-wide rear wheels via a Porsche sequential six-speed constant-mesh gearbox with an electronic shift actuator for particularly fast and precise gear changes. As in the GT road-going models, the driver changes gears via shift paddles conveniently positioned on the steering wheel. The clutch is electro-hydraulically controlled, which eliminates the need for the clutch pedal and assists quick race starts. Typical of the 911, the weight distribution ensures excellent traction and braking performances. The spectacular aerodynamics of the 911 GT3 R also follows the example of the road car. The distinctive wheel arch air vents on the front fairings increase downforce at the front axle. Measuring 1,900 millimetres in width by 400 millimetres in depth, the rear wing lends aerodynamic balance. The tyre circumference at the front axle has grown from 650 to 680 millimetres. In tandem with the new Porsche double wishbone suspension, this ensures superior braking performances and consistency over the duration of the race. The brake system of the 911 GT3 R also underwent further modifications and now offers increased stiffness and more precise control of the ABS. At the front axle, six-piston aluminium monobloc racing brake callipers combined with ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a diameter of 390 millimetres ensure outstanding braking performances. Fitted at the rear axle are four-piston callipers and discs measuring 370 millimetres. Another development focus was on the safety features of the 911 GT3 R. In order to improve pit stop performance, the 120-litre FT3 safety fuel cell can now be refilled from the left or the right depending on the circuit layout. The doors and the side windows can be removed. The new racing bucket seat affords pilots even better protection in the event of a collision. The seats are now bolted at six points. In combination with the adjustable pedal box, the driver’s centre of gravity is optimised and offers increased safety in the event of an impact. In addition, the driver is protected thanks to a side impact element positioned in the driver’s door, which consists of a carbon-fibre Kevlar aluminium construction with energy-absorbing plastic foam. The cockpit has been redesigned. All controls have been perfectly aligned to suit the needs of the driver. For the first time the 911 GT3 R features air-conditioning. This ensures ideal interior cooling and, thanks to the direct connection to the seat and driver’s helmet, enables particularly efficient cooling of the driver, which in turn helps them maintain concentration and a constant performance over the race.

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Drivetrain, Chassis, and Suspension
 
02:18
The Ranger Raptor powertrain features cutting edge technology to offer more power and torque, better fuel economy, less weight and with off-road specific calibrations for engine, transmission, driveline, steering, brakes and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. In a revolutionary move to deliver incredible performance and responsiveness, a 10-Speed transmission is combined with a new 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine in the Ranger Raptor to deliver a maximum of 213PS (157kW) of power and 500Nm of torque. Ford engineers have tested the new powertrain extensively in order to prove out durability. This testing includes running a ‘thermo cycle’ on the engine, heating both turbos to the point of glowing red for 200 hundred hours non-stop. It can withstand this torture thanks to the turbo bearings and low-pressure (LP) turbo being water cooled to reduce temperature, avoid over-heating and protect the air induction components. Working as a team, the smaller, high-pressure (HP) turbo is connected in a sequence to the larger, LP turbo and is controlled with by-pass valves that determine the operating mode depending on engine speed. At lower engine speeds, the two turbos work in series, enhancing torque and responsiveness, while at higher engine speeds, the small HP turbo is bypassed, and the higher LP turbo provides boost to deliver more power. The Ford-designed and Ford-built 10-speed automatic transmission is shared with the F-150 Raptor and has been created with high-strength steel, aluminium alloys and composites to optimize durability and weight. Having 10 gears means a wider ratio-span resulting in better acceleration and responsiveness. With more room to optimize gear spacing, engineers could customize gear progression far more efficiently than before, providing more accurate – and quicker – upshift and downshift capability. The all-new electronic system features real-time adaptive shift-scheduling algorithms engineered to help ensure the right gear is selected at the right time. A unique transmission calibration also includes a ‘Live in Drive’ function, meaning that the paddle shifters are always available for manual gear selection override. The Ranger Raptor’s chassis frame is a new unique frame that is specifically designed for the vehicle to travel at high speeds off road and endure the punishment that off road racing provides. Ranger Raptor’s innovative new coilover rear suspension uses a Watt’s link setup with solid rear axle to provide superior lateral control off-road while also helping improve ride and handling. The frame design incorporates new geometry for the large suspension, providing the Raptor DNA increased track and wheel travel. Built to withstand high-impact off-road events, Ranger Raptor’s frame consists of various grades of high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel. The stiffened side-rails are made from increased HSLA grade steel to absorb off-road high speed impacts. The front accommodates strengthened protruding shock absorber towers, while a new bespoke coilover rear suspension with an integrated Watt’s linkage allows the axle to move up and down with very little lateral movement. Two recovery hooks rated at 4.5 tonnes can be found at the front, plus reinforced spare tyre mounting cross-members for the larger 17-inch Raptor rims. The braking system on the Ranger Raptor offers extreme stopping power through new and bespoke components. At the front, twin-piston calipers have been increased by 9.5mm in diameter, while the ventilated rotors are an impressive 332 x 32mm in size. At the rear, Ranger Raptor comes with disc brakes with a brake actuation master cylinder and booster to increase braking performance. The 332 x 24mm rear rotor is ventilated and coupled with a new 54mm caliper. “The standout experience of the Ranger Raptor, hands down, is how far you can push it off-road versus any other available production road vehicle in our markets, and still ride like a millionaire on-road,” said Damien Ross, Chief Program Engineer, Ranger Raptor, Ford Motor Company. “Everything about the Ranger Raptor builds on the already outstanding sophisticated feel and functional capability of the Ranger, and then goes further. From a driving dynamic fun standpoint, it is really an exceptionally special vehicle.” Raptor’s race-bred suspension has been specifically crafted to tackle undulating terrain at high-speed while remaining in complete control and comfort. The Position Sensitive Damping (PSD) shock absorbers (dampers) provide higher damping forces at full jounce and rebound to enable better off-road capabilities, and lower damping forces in the mid-travel zone for a class leading plush ride during on-road trips. These settings are truly calibrated for the best of both worlds. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

VW Oettinger Body Kit Install
 
04:05
VW Group specialist, Oettinger Sportsystems, has worked directly with Volkswagen to produce new body kits for the Volkswagen Golf performance models. With design enhancements on offer for the Golf GTD, GTI and R, these new kits will enable buyers to make their ride unique directly from the showroom. An all-new exhaust silencer completes the more aggressive look. At the front the Oettinger kit adds a new spoiler and splitter which not only look the part but have been proven to improve airflow under the car in-line with VW’s geek-level aerodynamics on the ‘out the box’ cars. In fact, they’ve been so anal about making the system work that it was heavily tested in a wind tunnel. So it’s not just a fancy frock. Probably the most obvious change at the back of the GTD and GTI is the new stainless steel quad exhaust system. As the R is already well endowed with exhaust pipes, these have just been honed and with all models the 84mm diameter will stand out. It’s not all show and nothing else; as well as the look the sound has been altered with new mufflers to make it ‘more sporty’. We’ll leave that to the ear of the beholder. However on the R at least there is valve control so drivers can switch on the ‘loud’ when it’s required. Between those four pipes now sits a rear diffuser which – as with front end – actually works aerodynamically, rather than being a bolt-on afterthought. At the top of the rear now sits a new roof spoiler which ‘underlines the powerful appearance that the Oettinger body kit brings to the trio of potent Golfs’. That’s according to the blurb – we just think it looks good compared to standard. New side skirts complete the overall look of the car. Here is a time lapse install on a VW Golf.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Towing & Trailering Features
 
02:32
The all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 will introduce several levels of towing features to improve customers’ trailering experiences — all light-duty Silverado models have myChevrolet® trailering phone app capability and customers can add the Advanced Trailering System, which includes access to the system in-vehicle. The Trailering Camera Package works in conjunction with both of these technologies and provides a more comprehensive trailer view. Chevrolet is also helping to take the guesswork out of calculating the combined weight of customers’ truck and trailer combinations thanks to an industry-first trailering label. In developing the all-new Silverado, Chevrolet spoke with 7,000 customers over the course of 18,000 hours. Sixty percent of those surveyed named towing as a key purchase consideration. Another recurring theme was the difficulty many customers have with certain aspects of trailering. To address this, all four trailering levels offered on the 2019 Silverado 1500 will provide customers more confidence, easier trailer hitching and improved connectivity between the truck and trailer. “Ultimately, these technologies serve to eliminate common pain points of towing and help provide customers with a less stressful experience while trailering,” said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors. myChevrolet® app trailering features for smartphones Included with the purchase of all 2019 Silverado 1500s, the myChevrolet® app will offer select trailering features such as pre-departure step-by-step towing checklists and a glossary of towing terms for compatible smart phones and data plans1. The myChevrolet® phone app also allows drivers to conduct a trailer light test that uses an automatic exterior light sequence to help confirm that the trailer is properly connected. In the past, this was a two-person job – now a single individual can properly connect a trailer and check the lights. The trailer light sequence can also be activated via the Advanced Trailering System. Advanced Trailering System For customers who tow more often, the Advanced Trailering System provides features to make towing a more seamless process. The system is standard on LTZ and High Country trim levels and available on LT, RST and Trail Boss trim levels. The system includes: Auto Parking Brake Assist: Customers who’ve dealt with the frustration of perfectly aligning their truck and trailer hitch only to see the truck roll when they put it in park will appreciate this industry-first technology. It sets automatically when the vehicle is put into Hitch View to help avoid vehicle movement after the customer lines up the truck with the trailer and then shifts to park. Hitch Guidance with Hitch View: This adds a dynamic backing guideline to the Rear Vision Camera system to help customers line up their hitch, adding some precision and a visual cue to reduce the difficulty of aligning a hitch to a trailer. Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System: When properly equipped, this optional feature can monitor the tire pressure of the trailer tires using the truck’s infotainment system. This system also allows customers to monitor the temperature of their trailer tires to help prevent blowouts from overheating. Requires optional equipment and dealer installation. Advanced Trailering System Infotainment app This infotainment app that comes with the available Advanced Trailering System allows customers to track the mileage, fuel economy and transmission temperature of their truck while towing2. Customers can create and store up to five profiles, including guests, for different trailer types. Brake gain memory is part of this system and works with the Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, which provides fingertip control of the trailer brakes, to let the customer set and save the controller’s brake gain setting for each trailer within their profile. Another industry-first, Trailer Theft Alert, can activate the truck’s lights and horn if the harness of the trailer attached to the truck is disconnected3. Customers enrolled in the OnStar Safety & Security Plan will also receive a theft alert via their preferred method of contact: phone, text or email. The available wireless trailer tire pressure and temperature monitors listed above are also integrated into this system. Four sensors come with the Advanced Trailering System, with more available as accessories. Dealer installation is required. Trailer Camera Package This all-new package enhances trailering views with three cameras that provide a 270-degree view: Standard Rear Vision Camera. Two side view cameras mounted in the side view mirrors. An optional fourth accessory camera that mounts to the trailer provides an even more comprehensive view while towing.

Fastest Lap Record At Nurburgring By Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo Explained
 
08:38
Another milestone on the 919 Tribute Tour! We are referring to 29th June, 2018. The 919 Hybrid Evo was on the starting grid at the Nürburgring to write motorsport history once again. The mission was to set a new record on the 20-kilometre Nordschleife circuit. The driver: Timo Bernhard. The result: 5:19.55 minutes. Like almost no other racing circuit, the Nürburgring together with its legendary Nordschleife places supreme demands on materials and the skill of the driver. The challenging route weaving its way through the densely wooded and winding terrain of the Volcanic Eifel region is unforgiving and always presents a real challenge even for consummate professionals. Records have been set, heroes have been celebrated and legends have been born at the Nürburgring for as long as anyone can remember. The 919 Hybrid boasts an impressive track record of victories at the Eifel circuit which is so steeped in history. When the World Endurance Championship made its first appearance in Germany in 2015, the two Porsche teams claimed a rousing first and second place finish. First on the podium were Hartley, Bernhard and Webber. Dumas, Jani and Lieb occupied second place. The successful trio of Bernhard/Hartley/Webber were again the first to cross the finish line in 2016, and the sister car finished in fourth place. The next first and second place finish came in 2017. Once again Bernhard, Hartley and Bamber had their noses in front, closely followed by the Porsche trio of Jani, Lotterer and Tandy. The 919 Tribute Tour continues – be part of it! The next stop is the 25 Hour VW Fun Cup at Spa-Franchorchamps from 6th to 8th July, 2018. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc

Porsche 911 RSR Historic Livery
 
02:17
Porsche fields two special Porsche 911 RSR at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans: The factory-run cars with the starting numbers 91 and 92 will compete sporting the traditional Le Mans liveries of the 1970s and 1980s. The #91 contender is decked out in the iconic blue-and-white finish with red and gold stripes, reminiscent of the Rothmans sponsor colours of that era. The #92 car adopts the famous “Pink Pig” design of the 917/20 from 1971. Porsche unveiled the two circa 510 hp racers from Weissach on Saturday at the official test for the Le Mans 24-hour race. By presenting these special designs, Porsche commemorates its eventful history at the prestigious marathon in the Sarthe Department on the occasion of its anniversary year “70 Years Porsche Sports Cars”. Moreover, the two cars are real head-turners for fans. “With these much-loved designs, we want to thank our loyal supporters who have cheered for us both on and off the track at every race, but particularly at Le Mans, where we as record winners with 19 outright victories received incredible support every year,” says Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars. The 911 RSR with the number 91, driven by Gianmaria Bruni (Italy), Richard Lietz (Austria) and Frédéric Makowiecki (France), echoes the Rothmans paintwork of various Porsche race cars. An example is the Porsche 959, which won the 1986 Paris-Dakar rally flying the colours of the British tobacco manufacturer. In circuit racing, the Porsche 956 C and the Porsche 962 C celebrated major successes: Each of these two blue-and-white Group C sports prototypes clinched overall victory twice at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – the 956 C in 1982 and 1983, and the 962 C at the 1986 and 1987 races. The finish of the number 92 car, shared by race drivers Kévin Estre (France), Michael Christensen (Denmark) and Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium), harks back to the Porsche 917/20 that tackled Le Mans in 1971. This one-of-a-kind race car was designed to combine the aerodynamic advantages of the short and long-tail versions of the 917 and thereby ensure that the previously untested car would win the qualification. The 917/20 was dubbed the “Pink Pig” due to its pink paintwork with sections of the car labelled in butcher-style cuts. The idea implemented under the Porsche designer Anatole Lapine caused a stir at the Sarthe. Still today, the 917/20, also known as the “Truffle Hunter”, is one of the most famous Porsche cars ever. A total of ten Porsche 911 RSR racers will contest this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans – four fielded by the factory and six by customer teams. The two permanent vehicles from the Sports Car World Endurance Championship (WEC) will line up on the grid sporting the custom design; the #93 and #94 works vehicles will compete under the usual white, black and red livery, which from a bird’s eye perspective alludes to the emblem of the Porsche brand. The 86th edition of the Le Mans 24-hour race will be contested from 16-17 June. Get More Great Car Videos - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc
