A unique combination of a turbo-charged, fuel-injected, six cylinder internal combustion engine (ICE) is coupled with two energy recovery systems (ERS), with one harnessing exhaust heat and the other recapturing braking friction to provide additional electrical horsepower.

Formula 1 blogger, Matthew Somerfield, presents his own explanation of the various aspects that factor into the latest hybrid F1 technology.

Smoke IS the Bandit- The Challenge

0 Comments

Gotta LOVE this new ad campaign from Mobil 1, which riffs on the 1977 classic, Smokey and the Bandit. A moustached Tony Stewart, who nails that famous Burt Reynolds laugh, plays the lead role from the comfort of his hammock. See episode one, The Challenge, above.

Pepsi Max & Jeff Gordon: Test Drive 2

0 Comments

Jalopnik editor, Travis Okulski, recently found himself the target of the latest Pepsi Max/Jeff Gordon viral advert. While not quite as great as the first Test Drive spot, it's still pretty funny. And be sure to notice that tiny disclaimer in the video, "do not attempt to run from the police." LMFAO.

World's Fastest Audi

0 Comments

The onboard footage of this world-record-setting landspeed run at the Bonneville Salt Flats is pretty great. Watch an 1100 all wheel HP Audi make it's pass.

eGarage.com along with QuattroWorld.com travelled to the Bonneville Salt Flats a few hours outside of Salt Lake City, Utah to document Jeff Gerner's attempt at breaking a world record. He gave it a great effort last year, but came up short on his back up attempt. This year he showed up to the Salt Flats with a renewed excitement and nearly 1100 all wheel horsepower to try again.
