「暴力鴨」Toyota GR Yaris可說是目前全球最夯的新生代日系小鋼砲，英國汽車媒體媒體《carwow》這回又要來個最原始且直接的直線加速對決，對手就是同樣來自日本、曾奪下紐柏林賽道「最速前驅」頭銜的Honda Civic Type-R！

【影片在此】正確來說這可能不是一場公平的比賽，畢竟以馬力來說Honda Civic比GR Yaris強大許多，不過由於本次對決是在溼地完成，所以力量和速度並不能直接看出勝負，摩擦力和車重也變得相當重要。
在第一場比賽中，GR Yaris儀錶板上出現轉向輔助系統故障的訊息而結束，恢復之後便可以看到這並不只是一場傳統的比賽，還加入了動態起跑競賽與煞車制動測試。在靜止起步加速比賽上，GR Yaris的前段擁有明顯的優勢，儘管Type R後來居上，仍以些微差距落後GR Yaris；不過在動態起跑的部分，Type R明顯佔上風，沒多久就將GR Yaris拋在腦後；而煞停的部分，Type R則因為車身較重，而吃了一場敗仗。
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is an imperfect car. It was built only for the 2018 model year, with roughly 570 US-market models finished in TorRed.
The reason why we call it imperfect is because a great many things need to go right for it in order to do what Dodge claims it can do. Plus, there’s a lot of prep-work that goes into getting your Demon ready to launch.
Of course, with everything going as planned, this is without a doubt one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the world, thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 that’s rated at 808 HP (819 PS) on 91 octane gasoline and 840 HP (852 PS) on 100 octane fuel.
So what can you do if you want a new one? First of all, since production has ended, settle for “barely used” instead, like this 209-mile (336 km) example getting auctioned off through Bring a Trailer. Second, get ready to pay above sticker price, especially if it’s well-kept.

The sticker on this Demon reads $86,762, with additional features including the Air Catcher headlights, Air Grabber hood, fender flares, Demon badging, black fuel cap, black decklid spoiler and dual exhausts. Inside, there’s black cloth on the bolstered front seats to go with white stitching and Demon embroidery. The steering wheel meanwhile is wrapped in Alcantara for superior grip – which you need if you’re planning on launching the car hard.
As for the Demon Crate, it packs the race-tuned ECU, a Snap-On tool kit, Demon branded jack and those silly, yet very useful, narrow drag racing wheels for the front axle.
Officially, the Challenger SRT Demon is capable of hitting 30 mph (48 km/h) in 1 second, 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.3 seconds, 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.1 seconds and a top speed that’s factory limited at 168 mph (270 km/h). It can also cover a quarter mile in just 9.65 seconds at 140.09 mph (225.45 km/h).
How much will it go for? Well, there surely is no way of knowing, but at the time of writing, and with five days left in the auction, it had already attracted a highest bid of $100,000.
LG Chem intends on more than doubling its production capacity of battery cells it makes in China for Tesla in 2021.
Tesla has ambitious plans to continue its ramp-up of production around the world and needs its battery suppliers to keep up.
According to Reuters, LG Chem will ship its increased output from China and Korea to Tesla’s factories in Germany and the United States. This move comes after LG Chem added production lines in South Korea earlier this year to meet demand from the automaker’s Fremont factory in California.

“Tesla simply doesn’t have enough battery cells,” an individual with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. “So LG Chem is going to more than double China output.”
“We’re continuing to expand capacity for cylindrical battery cells in response to growing demand from automakers but we can’t comment on specific customers,” added an LG Chem spokesman.
Last week it was revealed that LG Chem will invest $500 million over the next year to raise annual production capacity of 21700 cylindrical battery cells at its Nanjing plant. This will see the number of production lines increase from eight to at least 17.
LG Chem currently supplies the battery cells to the Tesla Model 3 built in Shanghai. Each vehicle uses 4,416 battery cells and each LG Chem production line can produce up to 7 million cells a month. With 17 lines up and running, it will be able to cater to up to 323,000 vehicles annually. The company will also be the sole supplier of battery cells for the Model Y built in Shanghai, as well as handling the initial supply of battery cells for Teslas built at the Berlin plant.
