Foreign news sources are reporting that the Mercedes engineers are working on a 500hp C-class, which will set to compete against the upcoming M3 and the Audi RS4. They are also saying that the AMG version will get the typical AMG styling in the front, rear and side; as well as 19in alloy wheels. The engine will be a V8 that will be able to let out its rour with 4 exhaust pipes. This description sounds amazing, if it will look anything like the picture above, then Mercedes has certainly created a contender if not a winner.

Ex-Totoya engineers stole from Ferrari

In South Africa, acts like murder, treason, or plotting to overthrow the government rank among the most heinous crimes a person can commit. In Italy, stealing secrets from Ferrari ranks right up near the top of the list, too.

Following a long, drawn out process, two former Scuderia Ferrari engineers, who stood accused of stealing secrets from Maranello and giving them to rivals at Toyota F1, have been convicted. Pending appeal, Angelo Santini was sentenced to nine months and Mauro Iacconi to 16 behind bars on charges of industrial espionage. They left the Italian based supercar manufacuter and joined Toyota F1.

It’s ‘Veyron Time’ at the Gumball 3000

buggati-veyron-at-gumball-i.jpg
It is that time of the year when the entire automotive buzz comes to literal halt, irrespective of what related event is in progress for it is April and the only place the buffs want to be at, is the Gumball!

The Bugatti Veyron will feature in this years run. It is being equipped with Laser Pro Park, a system that is basicly a parking aid with a twist. Other than helping you park the over a million dollar Bugatti Veyron in small parking spots it somehow makes it impossible for laserguns to get a reading. This means you can drive the Bugatti at speeds it’s made for without having to worry about a big fine from a cop with a lasergun!

The present buzzz is the fact that Veyron will be the new entry into the famous run and the most expensive entrant to date.

Keep watching ZoopedTube for videos from the run posted daily!
