BMW i3

More than a month ago we reported on BMW’s green, electric concept car, the i3.

Now, finally, the day has arrived that we get to show you real life photographs of the car, as it was shown off at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The i3 marks a break through for the German car manufacturer, as it is their first electric car. It is estimated that the i3 will be able to travel approximately 80 – 100 miles, or 130 – 160km on electric power, before it would need a recharge.

The i3 is also a leader in innovative, ‘green’ car manufacturing. Most of its oddly shaped body is composed of lightweight composite materials. These include reinforced carbon fiber plastic, while the i3′s chassis is composed of aluminum and magnesium. It is the first mass-produced car with such attributes.

So, without further a do, here is the all new, 2014 BMW i3 – ready for action:

Ford vs Renault

Chris Harris is back, and this time he is taking a Renault Clio RS 200 EDC against a Ford Fiesta ST.

Both of these cars are rather small in size, but I’m betting they’ve got big personality! You know what they say, dynamite comes in small packages…

You can check out the video below – and, as always, Mr. Harris is entertaining and charming and knows what he’s talking about!

Which one would you prefer? The Renault or the Ford? It’s a tough one for me…

Paper LA

Many us can only dream of owning a Lamborghini one day – never mind a top of the range Aventador!

But, for one man, he would go to any length to make his dream of owning a Lamborghini Aventador a reality – even if it means he’s not exactly getting the ‘real’ thing…

Taras Lesko decided that he will, in fact, own a Lamborghini super car even if he has to build it himself. And build he did! The only exception? His medium was different than what you’d expect. No steel or metals, but… paper! (more…)
