Taking bling to a whole new level, the Isotta Urban Glow range has finally hit South African shores.
ISOTTA, for first time into the automotive market has introduced products with Swarovski original crystals. (Cristallized TM – Swarovski Elements)
The ISOTTA URBANGLOW is made by several car-style products, all completely made in Italy and embellished using original Swarovski crystals. The insertion of each single crystal is made by hand and it requires special material to be well fixed into the correct housing.
As according to VWs plans, development of the next generation Golf is well underway. The Golf VI is being developed to be cheaper to build than the current Golf V, which has had VW management lamenting many ills: the electronics are too complicated and require highly qualified personnel, increasing training costs. The doors and the multilink rear suspension also require complex assembly techniques, leading to production times almost double those of rivals which leads to high production costs. The result is a car which in 2004 generated â‚¬900 million less than expected, one of a myriad reasons why VW has considered a replacement much earlier than originally planned. (more…)
The Lamborghini Gallardo V8 was caught testing at the NÃ¼rburgring race track. As you can notice from the video, the V8 Gallardo will use the same exhaust note as the Audi R8 and the exhaust pipes are smaller than on the V10 Gallardo.
Lamborghini will borrow the current V8 engine from the R8 for a more affordable Gallardo. The new supercar will sit bellow the current V10 Gallardo, but above the current Audi R8. The V8 will bust around 430 hp in the new Gallardo, but with the low weight of the supercar, the performance will be better compared to the R8: 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph.

Weight saving is becoming a very crucial factor for todayâ€™s performance cars. Just as manufacturers are trying to squeeze out that extra kilowatt, at the same time they are also trying to shed that extra kilogram. It is quite common for super cars to use carbon fibre body panels to reduce weight and this has been slowly making its way to normal road cars such as the new 2008 BMW M3 which will have a carbon fibre roof. Even AMG boasts using 19 inch alloy rims for their Black Series CLK63 that just barely weighs 11kg each, which is about 3kg lighter than the CLK63′s standard wheels. (more…)
Friday 13 July will see the second round of the new and popular WesBank Bike Night at WesBank Raceway. The biking equivalent of WesBank Racewayâ€™s hugely successful Illegal 2 Legal programme, WesBank Super Series Bike Nite is aimed turning the world-class A Grade drag strip into a safe biking playground for all social bikers from SuperBikes to quads from 7pm till late under floodlight. R6,000 prize money will be up for grabs between the S (below 1,000cc) SB (Superbike), the SuperMoto and Quad bike classes. Exhibitionists can do their wheelies and stunts for product prizes, while spectators will applaud safely behind concrete walls and fences.
Cars will be allowed onto the drag strip from 9pm to get their adrenaline fix, but they will not be able to dip into the bikers R6,000 prize kitty! Entertainment will include drifting as well as some hugely popular spinning displays by none other than the King of Spin â€“ Magesh!
R50 to race as many times down the strip as time allows, plus an annual MSA club license (R110 and available on the night). Bikers must wear their crash helmet and wear long pants and protective jackets.
Admission is R40/adult or R20/child for spectators coming by foot or car, and bikers will only pay R20 per bike, with a passenger included! Gates open at 6pm, and racing starts at 7pm until 11pm.
Besides the driver skill there are quite a few other ingredients needed before drifting can be achieved with a SUV. Building on the success of 2006 whereby Gatebil built a 634 bhp E90 3 series BMW taxi, they have come up with the perfect recipe once again for another bizarre project. Well the first ingredient is definitely a very large 7 seater SUV in which case the Volvo XC90 fully qualifies this criterion. Remove all the 4×4 functionality to leave it rear wheel drive. Slap in a huge American V8 motor caple of pushing out 787 bhp with 1010 NM of torque. Then lower the suspension and add 22 inch wheels. And voilÃ , the perfect SUV drift machine and probably the fastest taxi in the world as well.
