All-New 2017 Honda Civic Si From $23,900 In The U.S.

Honda’s first-ever turbocharged Civic Si Coupe and Sedan will become available at Honda dealerships across the U.S. starting from tomorrow.

The new 2017 Honda Civic Si is priced from $23,900 MSRP for either the Coupe or the Sedan bodystyle.

Under the bonnet lives Honda’s turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol with direct injection and dual-variable cam timing, producing 205hp and 192lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a short-throw six-speed manual transmission.

The new generation is also significantly lighter from previous Si models, with the Si Sedan being down 96lbs from the previous model with a curb weight of 2,906lbs and the Si Coupe being 113lbs lighter from its predecessor, at 2,889lbs.

The more rigid chassis benefits from sport-tuned suspension with two-mode adaptive dampers, a limited-slip differential, larger brake rotors and more rigid stabilizer bars, among others. The front upper control arms are ultra-rigid and come straight from the Civic Type R.

The exterior look is enhanced with a gloss black fascia, larger lower air intakes, 18-inch alloys and a chrome-finished center-mounted polygonal exhaust. The Si Coupe further adds a rear full-width light bar and a raised rear spoiler.

The cabin features bolstered sport seats with red stitching that runs across the interior. The red detailing continues onto the driver’s TFT meter as well as the audio illumination.

All-New 2018 Honda Civic Type R From £30,995 In The UK

The current fastest front-wheel drive production model around the ‘Ring, the new Honda Civic Type R, is set to arrive in Honda UK dealerships this July.

The entry-level version will cost upwards of £30,995, with the GT version asking for an additional £2,000, priced at £32,995.

GT models come with features like blind spot monitoring, cross traffic monitor, dual zone climate control, auto dimming rear view mirror, Honda’s Connect infotainment with Garmin Navigation, wireless charging, high power audio and LED front fog lights as standard.

Honda’s latest hot hatch is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol unit that pumps out 316hp (320PS) and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of peak torque. Mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox, the new Civic Type R managed to reclaim the title of the fastest front-driven production vehicle around the Nurburgring by posting a 7min 43.8sec lap time, nearly 5.5 seconds faster than the VW Golf Clubsport S and 7 seconds faster than its predecessor.

The chassis is now longer, lower and wider and gets a revised McPherson front suspension along with a multilink rear setup, with torsional rigidity increasing by 39 percent when compared to the outgoing Civic Type R.

All-New 2018 Honda Civic Type R Spot From $35,000 In The U.S.

As Americans prepare to get their first taste of a Type R branded model from Honda, it appears as though one reservation holder has tried to make a serious buck before the 2018 Civic Type R’s launch.

A couple of days ago, Tire Meets Road discovered a Craigslist ad (since deleted), where the seller was looking to off-load his spot for a new Type R for a crazy $85,000. To put that into perspective, the world’s fastest front-wheel drive production around the ‘Ring is expected to start at $35,000 in the U.S.

In the advertisement, the seller claimed that delivery of the car was scheduled for June 15th or potentially sooner and that strangely, it was unknown what color the car will be.

“I am solely selling this vehicle because of an opportunity to make money to fund my other interest. I am absolutely in love with this car and have no problems keeping it if I am not satisfied with the offers,” the seller said.

Craigslist is full of trolls and there’s a very good chance the seller doesn’t even have a Type R on order. However, if the advertisement was real, it could be just the first in a number which are likely to appear prior to the car’s local launch.

All-New Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon From £81,130 In The UK

Mercedes announced the pricing and range details of their super-fast and super-cool E63 Estate for the UK market.

Powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, the long-roof version of the E63 gets the same, eye-popping numbers with its four-door sibling, meaning 571hp for the regular version and 612hp for the E63 S.

For the first time in the model’s history, power will be transmitted to all four wheels as standard, thanks to the newly developed 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system with fully variable torque distribution between axles and a dedicated Drift mode for the range-topping S model.

The 612hp version can also hit 62mph from naught in 3.5 seconds, with top speed being electronically limited to 155mph, unless you specify the optional AMG Drivers package which lifts the limiter to a more Autobahn-suited 18 6mph(300km/h). Read the rest of this entry »

2018 BMW M2 Facelift Shows Up Unexpectedly

Images of the facelifted BMW M2 momentarily emerged on the Bavarian company’s Belgian site, prematurely revealing the planned changes for the entry-level M model.

Bimmertoday grabbed these images -which are apparently edited versions of the original press photos- before they were taken down, allowing us to take an early peek of the updated BMW M2.

Don’t expect any major visual differences, with the updated M2 only getting a set of new full-LED headlights and an similarly revised set of taillights, leaving the rest of the aggressive exterior as it was.

The new lighting units will also be used on the lesser 2-Series Coupe and Convertible models, while the interior is expected to be subtly updated as well, getting the latest generation of the iDrive infotainment system.

Mechanically there will be no differences from the current model, with a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six unit still providing 365hp (370PS) and 343lb-ft (465Nm) of peak torque and the chassis remaining unchanged.

The BMW M2 remains one of the most rewarding models in its price range after all, but for those looking for something more edgy, the Bavarian company is planning a more focused version, the M2 CS, due to be launched next year.

¡Increíble!: Vea las espectaculares pruebas del primer auto volador

La empresa alemana Lilium Aviación ha probado con éxito el primero avión del mundo de despegue y aterrizaje vertical (VTOL) para uso personal. Se adelanta a sus rivales en la carrera hacia el pionero de los ‘coches voladores’.

Impulsado por sus motores de turbina 36, ​​el biplaza VTOL puede alcanzar una velocidad de crucero de 300 kilómetros por hora y mantenerla durante una hora en una sola carga de baterías. La firma, que cuenta con el respaldo del cofundador de Skype Niklas Zennstrom, ha probado las capacidades del vehículo para despegar y aterrizar como una aeronave, así como flotar y realizar vuelos cortos.

La prueba allana el camino a Lilium para lograr su objetivo final de crear el primer taxi aéreo.
Sin embargo, Lilium no es la única empresa que está desarrollando la tecnología de los automóviles voladores: AeroMobil anunció el pasado jueves que planea aceptar pedidos para la “primera edición limitada” de sus coches voladores. La compañía eslovaca estima que su coche, valorado entre 1,2 millones y 1,5 millones de euros, podría ser entregado a partir de 2020.

Mientras tanto, la firma china Yi-Hang se está preparando para hacer realidad su avión no tripulado de pasajeros Ehang 184 disponible para viajes en taxi bajo demanda en Dubái. Además, Airbus, la firma alemana E-Volo y Terrafugia –con sede en Boston–, han estado trabajando en proyectos similares en los últimos años con diseños que van desde los multicópteros dotados de rótores a híbridos entre coche y avión.
