McLaren Technology Centre: Google Street View

McLaren Technology Centre: Google Street View
The Google Street View team continues their plan to map out as much of the world as humanly possible, this time taking their panoramic lens inside McLaren’s Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, UK. What makes this particular Street View special is that the facility isn’t open to the public, so for most of us, it’s the only opportunity we’ll get to see these amazing vehicles in such detail.

2014 Honda Civic WTCC Racer
This artist’s rendering of the planned Honda Civic WTCC shows Honda’s plans for its 2014 FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) car, and it looks incredible. Due to a change in the WTCC regulations for 2014, Honda is able to increase the aerodynamics along with the tire width so we also see new wheel arch extensions.

Preparing for a Crash Test

Preparing for a Crash Test
We always assumed that crash testing vehicles involved just strapping a crash test dummy in the front seat, connecting the car to a winch, smashing it into a barrier, then inspecting the wreckage and viewing what the dummy’s sensors recorded.

Volkswagen Golf VII GTI Dark Edition

Volkswagen Golf VII GTI Dark Edition
While it’s not nearly as tricked out as Volkswagen’s one of a kind Design Vision GTI Concept, we’d still be happy to get behind the wheel of ABT’s upgraded Golf GTI. This blacked-out ride starts out with an amped-up turbo 2.0-liter four which has been fired up from the factory 230hp up to 300hp, resulting in a 5.8second 0-to-62mph time (0.6 seconds better than stock.) Other enhancements include a more aggressive front spoiler, front and rear skirts, black quad chrome exhaust, and black 20-inch rims with red accents.

Better in Snow: All-Wheel Drive or Winter Tires?

2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 Flies on the Nürburgring
With a light drizzle falling on the famed 12.9 mile Nürburgring track, the 505 horsepower V8 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 clocks in with an impressive lap time of 7:37.47. That time bests the published times for the Porsche 911, the Lexus LFA, and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

Parajet Skyrunner Flying Car

Parajet Skyrunner Flying Car
Part all-terrain buggy, part light aircraft, the Parajet Skyrunner is a flying car built on a lightweight, off-road chassis and powered by a Ford 1.0 liter Ecoboost engine. The Skyrunner is a capable vehicle both on the ground, where it has an off-road suspension, and in flight, thanks to its lightweight and reflex paraglider wing, although we’re not sure where you stow the paraglider after you’ve safely landed in front of Starbucks.

Hankook I-Flex Airless T-Wheel Tires
One of the biggest safety risks to drivers is the potential for a tire blowout. While today’s tires are more durable than ever, they still can fail catastrophically if they hit a sharp object in the road.
