Blips And Cold

Recently you improved the power of your Mazdaspeed3 by adding a cold air intake. I have a 2007 Mazda MX5 Miata and was considering this, not expecting the power increase you received, and was wondering what this would do to your mileage since no gears are changed. Would it be better or worse with similar driving habits Also, in your test of the new Nissan 370Z you talked of the engine blipping the throttle during downshifts so heel-and-toe pedal-work is not necessary.

The latest GTI has a crisper look than its predecessor with sculpted rather than molded lines. The current model's Audi-like front end has been replaced by a new nose with a massive lower air intake (flanked by relocated foglights) and a narrow grille complete with red outline in homage to the first GTI. This gives the car a wider, more aggressive stance, a design theme that's carried along the slightly concave-looking sides (set off by beefy aero sills and a creased beltline) to the rear end,...

When a Cadillac CTS-V and the brand-new Jaguar XFR arrived at our offices, it was obvious a proper road trip was in order. But not just any old road trip would do. We needed to take these two pinnacles of sports-sedan-dom on an epic adventure, somewhere they could stretch their really long legs. After all, the CTS-V and XFR pack some serious heat, armed with 500-plus-bhp supercharged V-8s, suitably stiffened and electronically adjustable suspension systems, big brakes, limited-slip...

And yet, that NASCAR car races at much higher average speeds for longer periods of time. On the banking we put loads on the tires unheard of in any...

The One-77 is a fusion of high-end technology and traditional craftsmanship and that is illustrated nowhere better than in the sumptuous lines Reichmann and his design team have created for the aluminum body. In an echo of how Aston body panels were once hand-beaten and rolled in the days of Newport Pagnell, so is it true of the One-77. This is particularly evident around the front gills and the C-pillars where the metal has been formed into an impossibly complex series of negative and positive...

The 2010 XFR easily ranks as one of the most impressive cars ever to come from Jaguar. What makes the XFR truly leap is an all-new direct-injected V-8 dubbed the AJ-V8 Gen III R. This 5.0-liter actually takes up less space in the engine bay than its 4.2-liter predecessor (it's shortened by 0.94 in.) due to the relocation of the oil pump within the engine architecture, while the weight has remained virtually unchanged. But it's the 4-lobe Roots-type supercharger that steals the show here, the...

There are plenty of good wheels out there for less than 30 thou sound transportation we admire. W Just as undeniably, there is something quite grand about gliding along in a big luxury sedan.

The Real Atkinson Cycle Identifies Itself

Honda had a neat cutaway of its experimental Extended-Expansion General Purpose Engine, a single-cylinder powerplant intended for portable generators, lawn mowers and the like. Particularly noteworthy is its Atkinson cycle featuring an expansion ratio distinctly different from its compression ratio. We've come to associate the term Atkinson cycle with hybrids. Indeed, everything from the Toyota Prius to Ford Fusion to Preserve Your Automotive Investments. Experience the shine of One-Step...

Turbo Pickups

Why haven't manufacturers of small pickups offered the option of a small gasoline turbo engine recently It seems it would offer a good combination of efficiency and power. The last one I remember was built by Toyota in the mid-'80s. Small pickups seem to have been passed by during the recently concluded truck frenzy, probably because there was more profit in larger trucks. Thus, we haven't seen much new in small-truck development. Taking your thinking further, why not a small turbodiesel pickup...

BY SAM MITANI international editor Since the government announced its new Federal CAFE standard for automakers doing business in the U.S. a few months back, the media buzz has been focused on electric vehicles. Next year, we'll see the first wave of mass-produced electric cars on U.S. roads, leaving one to wonder how smooth the public transition will be going from gasoline to electric. Public perception is one thing, but asking Americans to adapt to a new lifestyle is quite another. We're a...

V12 AdVantage

Aston Martin thinks stuffing a 510-bhp V-12 o into its Vantage is a good idea we agree NURBURG, GERMANY A quarter of a mile beyond a coffee stop on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage's launch, the route encountered a series of tunnels. There's only one course of action to take when you're piloting a 510-bhp V-12 sports car lower the windows, downshift a gear and nail the throttle. The 3700-lb. 2-seater lunged forward with ferocity, while the sound bouncing off the tunnel walls was like a Gatling gun....

Updating 40liter Fords

I have a 2004 Ford with the 4.0-liter 6-cylinder sohc engine. It is rated at about 180 bhp. I noticed in the February 2009 issue of Road & Track that the new Mustang offers a 4.0-liter sohc six, but now with 210 bhp. Given that these engines are not exactly the same, what kind of changes have been made to raise the horsepower with the same displacement More importantly, can these changes be retrofitted to the 2004 engine Are you sure about the 180-bhp rating Our research shows the 4.0-liter...

Add To Engine

The race itself is getting increasingly competitive each year. The pole-winning Ford GT of German Dirk Adorf led for most of the first hour, only to spin while lapping slower traffic. And from that point on, all through the night and well into the morning, the winning Porsche RSR had a great battle with the fastest of the Audi R8s, which by regulations were allowed to carry 20 liters more fuel, which meant they could stay out for one lap longer than the Porsches. To counteract that advantage,...

Sure sounds like a low-flying piston fighter plane. We were at the Reims circuit in France's Champagne district. Home to many French Grands Prix, Reims hasn't been used for racing since 1972, but has been preserved and its pits spruced up to look as they did decades ago. Bonham's, the auction house, brought the Auto Union to Reims for a demonstration as the car is to be auctioned at this year's The Quail concours on the same weekend as the Pebble Beach...

Hiroyuki Koba, the Ducati-riding 47-year-old chief engineer of the Lexus HS 250h, likens himself to a conductor. And yes, this new Lexus is his symphony, an artful balance of several key elements luxury, hybrid powertrain, advanced technology and ecological sensitivity all directed to form a harmonious sedan. Hence, the HS name. As some have suspected, the HS 250h is based on a version of the Toyota Prius' platform, even sharing its 106.3-in. wheelbase. But that's where the similarities end....

Fuel

While we hear a great deal about how much fuel goes into a Formula 1 car at any pitstop, what do we know about what goes into that fuel Great question for Shell's Dr. Lisa Lilley, who can be found in the Ferrari garage at every Grand Prix. Dr. Lilley explains that 99 percent of the F1 fuel has the same composition as pump gasoline. That other 1 percent She isn't saying. In fact, the regulations give tight limits for each member of the hydrocarbon group, only certain percentages permitted of...

Just as two of what are now known as the Detroit 3 were on the verge of Chapter 11 or worse SAE International held its Annual Congress in that very city. You'd fear that such a confab would be moribund indeed, but as a whole engineers are optimists as well as realists. Giving the opportunity to advance their art through interaction, they offer a bright future if only they survive the all too dismal present .
