The wait is almost over as Acura has announced the 2021 TLX Type S will arrive at U.S. dealerships this May.

Set to become the first Type S in more than a decade, the car will be powered by an all-new turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 355 hp (265 kW / 360 PS) and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque. It’s paired to a sport-tuned ten-speed automatic transmission and a standard Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system with torque vectoring.

Sticking with the performance theme, the TLX Type S has a double-wishbone front suspension with a multi-link rear and adaptive dampers. The model rides on 20-inch wheels that are backed up by four-piston Brembo front brakes and available Pirelli P Zero Summer tires. Last but not least, there’s an exclusive Sport+ driving mode that has been “specially engineered to provide additional performance and driver enjoyment.”

Full details will be announced closer to launch, but the Type S features a sportier exterior with an open-surface diamond pentagon grille that allows for increased airflow. The model also has a front splitter, a rear spoiler and a four-tailpipe exhaust system that is separated by a diffuser. Rounding out the highlights are LED lighting units and an exclusive Tiger Eye Pearl paint job.

Besides the sporty looks, the TLX Type S is pretty luxurious as it features 16-way power adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation as well as Ultrasuede upholstery. Drivers will also find a 10.2-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Rounding out the highlights are a flat bottom steering wheel, aluminum trim and a 17-speaker ELS Studio 3D sound system. The model also has ambient interior lighting, a wireless smartphone charger and the AcuraWatch suite of driver assistance systems including Traffic Jam Assist.

Detailed pricing should be announced in the coming weeks, but Acura confirmed the model will start in the “low $50,000s.”  That’s competitive with the Cadillac CT5-V AWD which begins at $50,395 before a $995 destination charge.

BMW B58模組化直六引擎曾在2016年、2017年、2019年,與2020年獲WardsAuto十大最佳引擎殊榮。

就在歐洲車商們紛紛放棄燃油引擎轉往電動車領域發展之際,BMW執行長Oliver Zipse日前表示,BMW將持續在發展燃油引擎上研發,如果你對電動車沒有愛,那這會是一個好消息。BMW要如何面對更嚴格的歐盟7期的排放標準呢?相信過不久就能在市場上看到答案。


歐盟7期排放法規草案在2020年底出爐,氮氧化物(NOx)的排放量將被限制在30毫克/公里(當前Euro 6d的NOx排放限制為80毫克/公里,誤差容許值34.4毫克/公里),此消息一出似乎就敲響了燃油引擎的喪鐘,車商們紛紛宣布將轉往電動車領域發展。Volkswagen工程師曾對此表示,若要達到這樣的標準,勢必得限制換檔時機,車輛只能緩慢前進,毫無駕馭樂趣可言。BMW尚未公布引擎有哪些重大技術突破來應對歐盟7期排放法規,不過最直接的影響肯定是售價,研發新引擎技術很燒錢啊!

預計在2025年推出全新電動車Neue Klasse

除了宣布繼續研發燃油引擎外,BMW最近在電動車領域上動作也不少,除了最近發表的iX純電動休旅車與i4純電轎跑外,也預告了將在2025年推出全新的純電車款Neue Klasse(德文,英文意思為New class),並立下在2025到2030年間BMW集團純電車銷量將以每年超過兩成的速度成長。

知難而退的歐洲車廠目前有Jaguar Land Rover、Audi,以及BMW集團旗下的英國汽車品牌Mini等。Audi前陣子宣布不再研發新的燃油引擎,最主要的因素就是歐盟7期排放法規會大幅增加燃油車的開發成本,執行長Markus Duesmann受訪時表示,我們決定放棄研發新的燃油引擎,未來將重心放在電動車上;Jaguar Land Rover在今年二月發表了Reimagine全球戰略計畫,Jaguar預計在2025年傳型為純電豪華品牌;Mini則是預計在2030年轉型為電動車品牌,不再提供純然油車款。

The 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron delivers an extraordinary 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque. However, it pales compared to this insane Dodge Viper.

The Viper has been brought to life thanks to Calvo Motorsports and was actually purchased by the owner because his modified Corvette Z06 was beaten by another Calvo-tuned Viper in a street race. The car was initially equipped with Calvo’s CM1600 package but it has now been outfitted with a plethora of bespoke modifications that make it an absolute animal.

In modifying the car, Calvo has increased the V10’s capacity to 9.0-liters, strapped on a pair of huge 8686 turbochargers, and fitted a dry sump, a Motec management system, and heaps of other upgrades. It is rocking a flex-fuel setup and when running on E85, churns out an insane 2,630 hp at 7,150 rpm at the rear wheels and an equally as crazy 1,985 lb-ft (2,691 Nm) of torque at 6,650 pm. Bugatti Chiron, eat your heart out.

This clip from That Racing Channel shows the car being put through its paces on the street and even though it wasn’t using its 2,600 hp tune, the way it accelerates down the road is truly mind-blowing. What’s particularly impressive about the car is that despite being rear-wheel drive, it manages to put the power to the ground very efficiently.

Owning and driving a car with this much power obviously isn’t for everyone, but as far as Dodge Vipers go, this might be the most impressive of them all.
