台灣福特確定會在 1 月 8 日正式發表 Focus Active 跨界休旅車。有著比 Focus 較高的車高,對手明顯就是鎖定 Corolla Cross。近期國外 Youtube 頻道《km77》,選擇了加長版 Focus Active Sportbreak 跨界旅行車進行麋鹿測試,結果。

跨界旅行車設定的 Ford Focus Active Sportbreak,進行麋鹿測試,最好成績停在時速 75 公里。

Focus Active 是以 Focus 為基礎所打造,離地高度為 150mm,比 Focus 的 120mm 更高,另外具備黑色輪拱、車頂行李架等訴求。Ford 也找來先前幫 Focus 代言的林依晨代言 Focus Acitve。

相較於 Focus Active,《km77》測試的 Focus Active Sportbreak 因為是旅行車,所以車尾較長,但同樣都是擁有離地較高的訴求,能具備基本的輕度越野能力;不過也由於離地較高,對於進行麋鹿測試,是一項不小的考驗。

在《km77》測試下,Focus Active Sportbreak 的麋鹿測試最好成績為時速 75 公里;再上去的時速 76 公里測試下,第一個過彎就已經明顯失控,導致根本無法再進去第二個彎;時速 77 公里時同樣也是如此,在第一個入彎時,更直接撞掉一個三角錐,並且也無法進入第二個彎道。

台灣準備在下週,舉辦 Focus Active 發表會,同樣具備離地高的優勢。


Ford Focus Active Sportbreak 麋鹿測試影片



The Corvette C7 Z06 is a very good sports car, but someone obviously thought that a number of modifications would improve its looks. Mission accomplished? We wouldn’t say so.

The car’s exterior is painted in a shade of baby blue which on its own isn’t particularly nice. Obviously, the car’s owner wasn’t satisfied with simply driving around in a baby blue Corvette and thought it would be a good idea to fit it with an aftermarket bodykit.

This bodykit includes flared front and rear wheel arches which, oddly, look to be painted in a slightly different shade of blue than the rest of the car. Making these wheel arches look even worse are the panel gaps, black exposed screws and the black rubber surrounds, as these Reddit photos show.

Other modifications include a set of black Forgiato wheels and a front bumper inspired by that of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Unsurprisingly, this Ferrari-esque bumper doesn’t work very well with the rest of the car’s design.

Speaking of the C7 Corvette Z06, it was revealed just before Christmas that General Motors will extend warranty cover for select Z06 models due to the overheating issues they can encounter when driving on the track.

A document from the car manufacturer has revealed that extended warranty coverage applies to 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 model year Z06s. To fix the issue, dealers will install an updated radiator package while also fitting new shift point calibration software for Z06 models with the available six-speed automatic transmission.

There’s something about homologation specials that just feels so right – and Toyota’s have improved a lot over the last 20 years.

To prove the point, Fifth Gear’s Jason Plato took the Toyota GR Yaris out on track against the Celica GT-Four ST205. Built from 1994-1999, the ST205 was the most powerful Celica up to that point.

Made to homologate Toyota’s entry into the World Rally Championship, the ST205 used a 2.0-liter four that made 239 hp and could get all the way up to 152 mph. Its most famous bit, though, as Plato alludes to in the video, is its turbo.

Or, rather, the race cars’ turbo, which one of the finest pieces of motorsport cheating ever devised. But don’t take my word for it, take Max Mosley, president of the FIA at the time’s word for it.

“It is the most sophisticated and ingenious device either I or the FIA’s technical experts have seen for a long time,” he said. “It was so well made that there was no gap apparent to suggest there was any means of opening it.”

Essentially, Toyota defeated a restrictor device designed to keep air out of the turbocharger. This had the impact of allowing an extra 25% more air into the turbos which allowed 50 more horses to come out of the engine.

But it was also a very well made car, with a very sophisticated suspension for the day. Even today, Plato reports that the handling is excellent. The Celica is a reminder that the ‘90s were a sweet spot for both Toyota and the car industry.

Despite that, it can’t keep up with the brand’s latest homologation special – even if Toyota eventually decided to run an improved version of last year’s car in the 2021 season.

The GR Yaris makes 268 hp from a 1.6-liter engine. Although that’s not an enormous amount more than the Celica’s 239, it is enough to get it to 60 mph more than half a second quicker.

Its advantage is much more apparent on the track. In Fifth Gear testing, the Yaris is seven whole seconds faster than the Celica. Goes to show how much progress has been done in the last 20 years.
