  3. Data from Wapcar automotive news shows that AfroDuck's record has fallen. A video posted to YouTube with little fanfare at the end of July shows the driver of a McLaren 720S whizzing through New York in 21 minutes and 3.16 seconds - breaking the 24:07 record that has put the AfroDuck on the hot list, making him a fugitive and forcing him into exile in Canada. The latest video taken by Fred Smith to Jalopnik's attention at Road & Track, shows the anonymous driver of a white McLaren 720S making a 24.5-mile detour around Manhattan on June 29, 2020, at 2:36 am. The driver claimed to have been stopped by 24 of the 58 red lights along the way, and a snapshot of McLaren's dashboard from the end of the race shows the car, with just over 1,200 miles on the clock, recording speed. the average speed of 69 mph and fuel consumption averaged 5.9 mpg in the 21-minute run. (For reference, the same route takes about 42 minutes if you follow the rules of the road.) The McLaren race moment was remarkable, as was the way the video was posted. As the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, New York City went into lockdown on March 23, 2020. The city was still largely closed when the McLaren driver recorded this lap, in the early hours of the morning. Monday. Apparently, the driver hopes to avoid the fate of AfroDuck by keeping this record a secret for more than 2 years: the video was only uploaded to YouTube on July 21, 2022, almost 25 months after the race was announced. has happened. This is McLaren's 4x accelerated Manhattan lap story; We have also included live speed video in cars at the end of this article. Challengers of illegal public road speed records had a field day in the age of the COVID lockdown. Cannonball cross-country records have been set and broken with astonishing frequency throughout the lockdown era because of daredevils taking advantage of empty streets and the fact that police and emergency crews are busy managing a global pandemic that has killed more than a million people in the United States alone. It is a miracle that, as far as anyone knows, no one has been killed or injured in any selfish attempt to set records with no price, no regulatory authority, and fading glory. bland. Consider what happened to AfroDuck. He completed his 24-minute lap on August 26, 2013, driving a 2006 BMW Z4. AfroDuck's video went viral just three days later, and when Jalopnik first spoke to AfroDuck - whose real name is Adam Tang - in the days that followed, he was sure he would never be arrested. This optimism turned out to be naivety. On September 4, Ray Kelly, then NYPD commissioner, set his sights on AfroDuck's back. Just a day later, Tang, 30, was taken into custody by the NYPD on charges of speeding, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, traffic equipment violations, dangerous lane departures, and excessive monitoring. rigid. His BC-registered blue BMW Z4 was seized. Tang pleaded guilty and had his license suspended (he was later arrested for driving with that suspended license). After an experiment that sometimes turned into a comic comparison between Tang's knee and Formula 1 racing, Tang fled to Canada. His license and passport were revoked, but he was able to get his Z4 out of the NYPD and apparently he crossed the Canada-US border with his Canadian birth certificate. Tang was found guilty of second-degree endangerment and reckless driving in November 2014 and sentenced to one year in prison. He remains in Canada, blatantly appearing on television and blaming his treatment at the hands of the NYPD on his image as a "nice Canadian". As Tang wrote in an article published in Jalopnik, access to the famous automotive internet essentially ruined his life in New York, forcing him to flee to Canada – a decision that had the ability to save him from facing long-term legal consequences. This year, Road & Track interviewed Tang, who describes himself as the victim of "malicious prosecution" by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. Since returning to Canada, Tang told R&T he was contacted once by a Canadian police officer, but he said the officer told him "we won't do anything what" about the US containment order. Here is the full, unedited video of the McLaren 720S doing a 21-minute lap in Manhattan.
  4. According to the news from Wapcar.my, Honda launched the 11th generation Civic at Gauteng in August, following the recently launched HR-V SUV. The Japanese automaker was once hugely known for great cars and even better reliability, but sales have declined in recent years. The launch of their latest models could revive the automaker's reputation and fortune in the local market. The new Honda Civic for sale in the market immediately impresses with its slim, clean sedan styling and purposeful stance, thanks to the placement of the wheels on the outer edge of the wheel arches. A continuous styling line runs from the nose to the sides of the trunk, and the car looks stylish. And that extends to the refined yet sumptuous interior, fully equipped with all the latest connectivity, safety and driving aids. Many of these features are operated from the spokes of the traditional Honda small-diameter steering wheel. It's only available in one model, and that's the Civic RS sedan. It has an impressive 1.5-liter four-cylinder multi-valve turbocharged petrol engine and CVT transmission. For fear that I will hear groans from readers at this point, let me hasten to add that this is without a doubt the most successful demonstration of a continuously variable transmission I have tested for now. It perfectly mimics the best examples of traditional multi-speed automatic transmissions, with programmed steps of how the belt interacts with the CVT's cone system. So you effectively benefit from appropriately kept fixed ratios during tough acceleration, but the transmission shifts continuously when the engine's red line is reached. So: there's no terrible humming that gets in the way of lesser CVT versions. The 131kW motor is a free-spinning gem, slamming through the 6,000rpm power peak with a thrill and a never-intrusive sporty note, even when you hit the pedals loudly. When operating smoothly, thanks to the distribution of maximum torque of 240 Nm at just 1,700 rpm, Honda claims an overall consumption of 6.2 liters / 100 km. This number is completely believable because the CVT gearbox is very efficient in cruise mode, allowing low rpm when opening the throttle lightly. The fuel tank can accommodate only 47 liters, which sounds small. But with great economy achievable, this translates to a range of 700 km or so, which is quite acceptable. The Civic's cabin is a very quiet place. The seat upholstery is a mix of suede and leather, elegantly stitched in red cotton to continue this Civic's sporty RS theme. And lest the question: what about the new Civic Type R? When it comes to Civic Type R, Honda has ensured that the next-gen Type R, will be launched next year, which is for a lot of car enthusiasts. And it is the last sports hatchback available. That sparks up the fact that the new Civic's interpretation is a sedan. Honda had attached homage to 10 predecessors of the Civic, which can be traced back to 1972. South Africans never liked this first interpretation, but in the early 1980s, the Honda brand entered the four-wheeler arena with a second version. In fact, this second version of the Civic, a small sedan, was launched here as the Ballade. And that name was used for several subsequent generations of Honda compact sedans in the 1990s. When the Civic's nameplate arrived in the late 1990s, it was in hatchback form. During the early years of Honda's presence in South Africa (Honda motorcycles have been sold here since the early 1960s), the brand quickly gained a reputation for exceptional quality. That is, customers can rely on them without any worry. The quality and solid air of this new Civic RS are evident from the moment you walk in and close the door. And once it's in motion, you realize that the fine balance between precise steering response and ride quality is once again the key feature you appreciate in a top-of-the-line Honda. The RS comes with standard 18-inch alloys and low-profile tires, but the ride is never harsh, despite the firm suspension. Road noise is also minimized. On the safety front, the new Civic sedan has six airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking system), cornering assist and an electronic driver assist suite. These include Collision Mitigation Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Monitoring Camera, and Automatic High Altitude Control. To create a distinctive interior atmosphere, the RS also comes with a 12-speaker Bose Surround Stage sound system, seemingly tailored for the new Civic. In addition, for those in luxury, the power-adjustable front seats and body shape provide ample rear head and legroom for full-sized adults of a domain configuration. Typical South-African. Honda also pays great attention to the arrangement of control buttons in the front part of the cabin, and the placement of digitizers, switches and buttons so that it is reasonable and easy to see. I love that mesh feature in the dash that spans the entire width of the cockpit, giving the car a bit of retro-modern personality and breaking the rigor of the mostly charcoal interior. Overall, this is a car that competes very strongly, both in looks and in feel, with the compact sedans from Audi and BMW. It sells for R669,000 and includes an impressive five-year or 200,000 km warranty, a five-year service pack, and three-year AA roadside assistance insurance.
  5. The 500cc stage of MotoGP competition is considered by many to be the sport's golden age, a time when the world's best riders had to battle unruly, gearless two-stroke monsters electronic and up to 200 hp per tire. This was also a time when the USA was a global power in Grand Prix competition, with four different American riders becoming 500cc World Champions from 1980 to 2000. This begins with the final three title wins for the Great Kenny. Roberts was reserved by his son, Kenny Roberts Jr, who won the 2000 championship at the Suzuki factory. Before Roberts ascended the throne, however, he raced the previous decade for his father's team, who ran the Marlboro Yamaha factory team from 1990 to late 1996, when eldest brother Roberts took the unprecedented step of creating created his own machine called Modenas after failing out with Yamaha. The whole story speaks to the importance of this 1996 Yamaha YZR500 OWJ1, the last Yamaha run by Roberts. It was also the first to be ridden by his son, who, after graduating from the 250cc class, drove it to a season-best 4th place finish at the 1996 Czech Grand Prix. Rick Degan Now and his team at RMD Motors are pitching the richly sourced Yamaha for $400,000. For decades, Degan has been at the forefront of bringing rare gems out of Japan, however, this particular Grand Prix bike comes from Kenny Roberts' own personal collection, after having been sold to Degan a few years earlier. And we can look forward to the performance of Yamaha Motorcycle Philippines. When I sold the bike to my current owner in the UK three years ago, he cycled it up and down, says Degan. The suspension has been fixed, the engine has been reworked, and it recently received a little more maintenance before Kenny Roberts took the machine up the hill at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It is in full working order, though. even though there are no spare parts included with the purchase. And according to Degan, RMD Motors can package the bike and ship it by sea or by air. There is another interesting American connection to this bike that goes beyond riders and team owners. Legendary American tuner and racer Bud Aksland developed his own cylinders, pistons, and various internal engine components for Team Marlboro racers Kenny Roberts Jr and Jean Michelle Bayle. The team's third rider, Japanese Norifumi Abe, drove another engine spec under his contract with Yamaha Japan, while the other two were free to use any spec. they want. This means that their machines are generally faster and produce more power than Abe's, a fact that doesn't sit well with Japanese Yamaha, as you might expect. Degan said this is an extremely rare piece. In addition, factory 500cc Grand Prix bikes are rarely for sale, and this would make a great motorcycle for the right collector.
  6. Stonic made its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, leaving people with a deep impression of its youthful and urban design. After being officially introduced in Taiwan in 2019, Stonic precisely targets its customers from the young (especially those who are single) to freelancers. Stonic aims at a practical car with a European-style fashion appearance and a micro-motion control system. And perhaps it can explain why the tags like Kia Stonic Philippines, Kia Stonic Malaysia, etc, can draw so many individuals’ attention. Moreover, I learned the news that the latest model launched in 2022 introduces the smart petrol-electric GT-Line model for the first time. It enjoys a sporty look outside, a customized design inside, and is equipped with an electrical system that is both tax-friendly and fuel-efficient, which has made the competition in the Taiwan CUV market more fierce than before. Let’s start with Stonic’s exterior design, which is the most charming part of the car, like a pearl on a crown. Stonic, led by KIA Europe's design center in Frankfurt, Germany, was awarded two international design awards, the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Product Design Award, shortly after its release. The exterior design of the Stonic 1.0T intelligent petrol-electric GT-Line further enhances its sporty atmosphere. The front end is designed with KIA's exclusive tiger-nose-style water shield, combined with the GT series' sporty exterior with three contrasting colored air vents below. The design, as well as the four-point, LED DRL and the Tiger-Eyeliner-style headlights, with their metallic-like geometric LED fog lights on the outside, step away from the stereotypical uniform face that the street is familiar with. Plus, it also features exclusive 2-tone matching. There are two types of test drives: Xiong Cang Gray body color with striking golden roof color and Xiong Cang Gray body color with beautiful red roof color, combined with the slim body shape of the hatchback body, with exclusive 17-inch Piano permission. As for the interior, as soon as you sit in the car, you can strongly feel the inner frame is all hard plastic and has a "hands-on" direction, but personally, I like this design. t have to worry about "natural decay" after a few years. In addition to being non-stick to hands, easy cleaning and maintenance is the most competitive advantage. And because it's a GT-Line model, a sporty D-Cut steering wheel is used, with metal and carbon fiber trim panels and composite seats with Tiger Nose motifs, along with metal adjusters, brake pedals, etc. On the exterior, it is obviously a charming design. Although the major tool is a traditional analog pointer, the onboard computer is a 4.2-inch color integrated form. The original 8-inch touchscreen multimedia audio and video system works seamlessly, and it also has wireless connectivity found only in millions of luxury cars. Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto functionality, so drivers don't have to struggle with a bunch of cables every time. Another pity is that wireless charging comes at an extra cost. We strongly recommend installing a clean "wireless" space in the front seats. In terms of power, it is equipped with a new generation "Smartstream" 3-cylinder in-line turbocharged gasoline engine. Although the power is still the same as the previous generation (120 hp / 6,000 rpm) with higher fuel efficiency and 48 V light diesel-electric system, torque increased by 2.9 kgm compared to the previous generation, reaching 20.4. kgm. As soon as you begin to accelerate, you would experience an incredibly fast speed! In fact, the engine generates torque instantly, compensating for the empty period before the engine revs up until the turbo is activated, completely eliminating the common problem of engines. Low displacement turbochargers are difficult to start. As the throttle gets deeper, however, tracking weakens, and it reverts to the performance of this tiny engine, but it's more than enough for town stopping and going, and even a bit like a car. Another advantage of the 48V diesel light electric system is that even if the idling engine stop function is activated, as long as the system's 0.44 kWh lithium battery still has power, the air conditioner will still have a red alarm light if it is in the hot summer in Taiwan. We can say that it is super useful. Moreover, the vibration when activating the engine's idling stop function is also significantly reduced, which encourages people to activate this function and contributes to protecting the environment. In addition to the above basic functions of the 48V oil light system, the slightly modified Stonic system also includes a "Sail" mode of surfing. After releasing the throttle at 30~120km/h in ECO mode, the system automatically determines if the engine can be turned off to allow the car to run in pure electric mode, that's why gasoline smart Stonic 1.0T - electric GT-Line can reach a speed of 19.9 km/L One of the secrets of excellent average consumption. In the ADAS section that Taiwan buyers pay the most attention to, the SCC intelligent cruise control system, which meets SAE Level 2 standards, can be said to be the most detailed and reassuring during operation! Smooth and linear acceleration and deceleration, together with the advanced LFA lane keeping assist system at top speed (0~200km/h), as long as you hold the steering wheel lightly, the car can be kept stable. centered in the right lane and with absolutely no drift or drift, you won't feel tired after a full day of test driving. Along with FCA Front Active Brake Assist "including pedestrian, driver and vehicle detection", BCA Active Collision Avoidance Brake Assist for blind spots and Master Brake Assist RCCA collision avoidance for rear traffic and other assistance systems, it adds to Taiwan's narrow streets with many cars. However, the SCC's operating speed range is 10~180km/h, and there's not much opportunity to use it in stopping and going in urban areas, so a little attention is needed. Other safety designs include a body structure that uses more than 51% advanced AHSS high-strength steel and is equipped with six SRS auxiliary airbags, providing the vehicle with comprehensive safety protection equivalent to a big car. For "sweet blood" drivers, the feeling of European driving is also the unique charm of the Stonic 1.0T petrol-electric GT-Line smart line. Although it looks like a CUV, it feels very close to a hatchback! Not to mention, you can easily travel through the streets and alleys of the urban area. After hitting the mountain road, the chassis is solid and the roll resistance is good, combined with the solid feel and precise steering, you can really enjoy a small turn. In Sport mode, if you need to climb slopes or accelerate, the engine will also intervene in time to provide instant torque. Paired with the seven-speed manual and dual-clutch automatic, there's no problem with the occasional rush. Many friends are also looking for the ideal CUV in their minds. Although there are many choices from domestic to imported, or there is no ACC, or there are many cars, or taxes are not good, etc. At this point, I will recommend KIA Stonic 1.0T Smart Hybrid GT-Line to them. Fuel consumption is amazingly nice, and the annual tax is only 8,640 yuan. No matter whether it is evaluated in terms of security, economy, or attractive appearance, they all deserve praise.
