AUDI

Audi has become quite renowned for sneaky previews of their latest models. Just as they did with the ads for the S1, Audi has done it again by teasing us with sketches of the highly anticipated Q4 concept.

Audi’s Q4 is a concept SUV tat will combine both fuel and electrical motors. The company has labeled the all new Q4 as a ‘plug-in hybrid crossover’.

Luckily for us, the sketches won’t be the nay thing we will be able to see about the car for a long time. The Q4 will make it’s official debut at the Beijing Auto Show next week. So while it’s all good and well to look at the sketches, we only have a week to go to see the official, real-life model.  (more…)

LAMBO CRASH

Ouch. That’s about all there is to say about this rather nasty crash involving a beautiful black Lamborghini Aventador.

Tesla’s electric sedan, the famed Model S, has been hailed by many as “the safest car on Earth”. While some of that statement might be true, there seems to be one, little factor that is a throne in Tesla’s safe side. And it’s quite a big one – fire.

Over the past few months, Tesla has been plagued with complaints of it’s model S catching fire when it is in a crash or comes into contact with road debris.
