Turning Gas Guzzlers Into Clean Cars

Turning Gas Guzzlers Into Clean Cars -

In Mexico City, more than 3.5 million cars navigate the streets, plazas and avenues of North America’s most populous urban area. That makes for a ton of exhaust, but luckily, there’s a solution to this environmental problem. Enter engineer/auto mechanic Alvaro de la Paz and computer scientist Hector Ruiz. Together, they’re transforming old gasoline-fueled automobiles into electric cars. Over the past decade, the pair has converted more than two dozen vehicles into zero-emissions automobiles. While that may seem like a small dent in an enormous cloud of exhaust, the pair hopes that their project will inspire younger generations to work for a brighter, cleaner future.

John Cena Buys Fancy Car, Sells It, Gets Sued By Ford

John Cena Buys Fancy Car, Sells It, Gets Sued By Ford

 

John Cena is being sued by Ford for allegedly selling his new 2017 Ford GT too soon after buying it for $460,000, the Washington Post reports. According to Jalopnik, approximately 7,000 people applied for a chance to buy the limited-edition supercar, and Cena was one of 500 selected to purchase it. In its lawsuit—filed Thursday in Michigan—Ford says it "reserves these unique vehicles for only those individuals who truly desire a special ownership experience, such as ... individuals who will be influencers and ambassadors of the vehicle and the Ford brand." Cena seemingly fit the bill, filming a YouTube video touting the wonders of the Ford GT. But the lawsuit claims the wrestler and actor broke contract with Ford when he turned around and flipped his GT for a profit.

 

 

As part of the process to buy the GT, Cena had to agree multiple times to maintain ownership of it for at least two years. But the lawsuit claims he sold it Oct. 20—less than a month after receiving it—and in doing so caused Ford "loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill." The lawsuit states Cena admitted to selling the car "for cash to take care of expenses" and said he would "make it right" but has not yet done so. Ford claims Cena "made a large profit" on the sale of the car and is seeking whatever he sold it for plus damages, TMZ reports. Those damages are said to exceed $75,000.

Driver Runs Ex-Traffic Cop Off The Road

Driver Runs Ex-Traffic Cop Off The Road

 A former traffic cop was forced off the road after a fellow driver failed to spot he was already overtaking a lorry. The shocking dash cam footage shows Mike Ashford-Smith begin to overtake a car and a lorry.

 

But as he gets alongside the SUV, it pulls out causing Mr Ashford-Smith to take evasive action in his Peugeot 207 estate.

He broke heavily but lost traction sending his car rolling over several times into a field.

He had been travelling with his wife along the A7 between Galashiels to Edinburgh when the crash happened.

Mr Ashford-Smith, who had to be cut from his car by the emergency services, said he was grateful to have his dashcam on, as it saved any arguments from the insurance companies.

The footage was passed onto Police Scotland and the vehicle was identified as belonging to a car hire company.

Tesla Unveils A New Roadster And It Is The Fastest Production Car In The World

Tesla Unveils A New Roadster And It Is The Fastest Production Car In The World

Tesla has unveiled a new Roadster, the new version of its original sports car. It’s the fastest production car ever made, according to Elon us, with speeds of just 1.9 seconds for 0 to 60 4.2 seconds for 0 to 100. It can handle a quarter mile in 8.9 seconds. “This is the base model,” Musk said, then went on to mention that its top speed is above 250 mph. and it has a 200 kWh battery pack that offers 630 miles of highway driving range. “It’ll be faster than that jet over there,” Musk quipped, as an airplane soared over the exultant crowd crammed into Tesla’s Hawthorne, California facility. As fans gasped, Musk said the Roadster had a 200kwh battery pack and a 620-mile range per charge, or over 1,000 kilometers. Again, another record shattered. Or so Musk claims. Imagine driving to Los Angeles to San Francisco, and back, without recharging, Musk teased. The vehicle has three motors, one in the front and two in the rear, all-wheel drive and torque steering.

Here's What Apple's Secretive Self-Driving Car Looks Like (It's Ugly)

Here's What Apple's Secretive Self-Driving Car Looks Like (It's Ugly)

 

Apple is still plugging away on its self-driving car experiment, Project Titan. We haven't seen a ton about it so far, but we know what its sensor rig looks like, and hoo boy, it's big:

https://twitter.com/macjshiggins/status/920326969522241536

The rig holds 6 LIDAR sensors, which obtain spacial data for the self-driving software:

Lidar comprises a series of rotating, stacked lasers that shoot out at different angles. Each layer is called a channel, and is made up of two laser beams. The signal from each individual channel creates one contour line, and together, those lines generate a 3-D image of the surrounding environment. That means that, the more lasers in each stack, the higher the resolution. Velodyne, for instance, manufactures products with 16, 32 and 64 laser channels.

[Bloomberg]

LIDAR sensors can run up to $50k apiece, so that rig is no cheap piece of equipment.

It's tough to say when Apple will unveil what its self-driving software is capable of, but it has the permits to test the technology on public roads in California, so progress is being made.

Woman Trades Single Packet Of McDonald's Szechuan Sauce For Volkswagen

Woman Trades Single Packet Of McDonald's Szechuan Sauce For Volkswagen

 

We've seen some questionably-priced cars, but this trade takes the cake on oddities exchanged. Fans of the TV show Rick and Morty have begun to trade in a new currency: Szechuan sauce. In a bizarre trade, one woman happened to acquire more than she bargained for, a 2004 Volkswagen GTI.

Let's rap a bit about where Szechuan sauce came from and understand just why it's getting such obnoxious pricing from the public. In 1998, McDonald's and Disney worked together on a promotion to celebrate the launch of the movie Mulan. Based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the plot of the Disney movie revolved around a young woman who disguised herself as a man to fight the Huns (alongside a Chinese army consisting of only men). As part of the promo, McDonald's released a teriyaki-flavored dipping sauce they called Szechuan sauce, and it slowly fizzled into the night once the hype of the movie wore off.

Fast forward to 2017. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's hit TV show, Rick and Morty, returns with the unannounced first episode of its long-awaited season 3 premier. At the end of the episode, Rick goes on a 30-second rant about how the entire show's plot is actually driven by his need for Szechuan sauce.

Naturally, fans bought right into the hype, and so did McDonald's. So much so, that they actually re-released the limited-edition sauce at some locations for just a single day. But many fans still couldn't get a packet for themselves, and the fear of missing out drove thousands to restaurants across the country.

So what do you do when you find yourself holding one of corporate America's coveted items? Sell it on eBay of course! A single packet of the sauce is easily running upwards of $100. Some people have theirs listed way into the thousands of dollars, and a promotional half gallon of the sticky sauce in a custom Pelican case is currently auctioning for more than $21,000 (another auction without the case is priced at $15,000). This entire ordeal of is making me question whether whoever buys it will actually dip their chicken nuggets like it's 1998, or save it by throwing it in that junk drawer in their kitchen and forget it exists until way past its expiration date.

But, if you're Rachel Marie from Macomb, Mich., you get more than a few hundred bucks. Originally looking to trade her Szechuan sauce for a collection of pins, she was surprisingly offered something even better. She is now the proud owner of a 2004 Volkswagen GTI. Luckily for her, it wasn't even a base model that she received in the trade. The German hatch features Volkswagen's 1.8-liter turbo 4-cylinder motor coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission, both of which options keep the car worth a bit more than its 2.0-liter and automatic counterparts.

"I didn't even think I was going to get pin offers," Rachel told us in an interview, "Then he offered the car."

Now, the sauce might not be as valuable as this six-mile Porsche 911 Carrera RSR, but the markup that some of these packets are going for makes you feel like you've stashed a classic car away for a few years. Rachel is now happily enjoying her new car while the new owner is presumably getting lost in the sauce, or maybe strategically selling it for (hopefully) more than his car was worth.


Hilarity Ensued When Twitter Tried To Figure Out What The Handle On Car Ceilings Is For

Hilarity Ensued When Twitter Tried To Figure Out What The Handle On Car Ceilings Is For

 

Let’s all be honest, you always find yourself holding on to that handle on the ceiling when you’re a passenger in a car. It’s just second nature to hold on to it for some reason. And yet not a lot of people know what it is for, or at least, never cared to wonder. But as usual, Twitter chimed in.

New Zealand Man Gets Drunk, Sells Car And Then Reports It Stolen The Next Day

New Zealand Man Gets Drunk, Sells Car And Then Reports It Stolen The Next Day

Sometimes waking up next to the village bicycle isn’t such a bad thing after all.

According to the New Zealand Herald, a New Zealand man went on quite the bender over the weekend and at one point needed more money to keep on drinking, so he did what seemed like the most logical thing at the time.

Yup, he sold his car.

The man’s car must have been one giant heap of shit because he was only able to fetch $800 for it, but that was enough to tie one on for the rest of the night and then some. Unfortunately when you drink that much booze, odds are you’re going to forget a thing or two when (if) you wake up the next morning. That was indeed the case this time around, as the man reportedly forgot the whole selling his car for drinking cash thing and called police to report that his car had been stolen.

“Thankfully the man who bought the car checked the registration the next day on the CarJam website, as he was worried it might be stolen,” Rotorua Police Senior Sergeant Dennis Murphy said. “The man came into the station with the car to let us know what had happened. We were able to get in touch with the original owner and told them to sort it out between them.”

The biggest takeaway from it according to Murphy? You guessed it: “Don’t drink and sell cars.”

A brand new Ferrari 430 Scuderia is going to set you back well over $200,000. You could make the case that Ferrari is the #1 sports car manufacturer on the planet based on engine quality, craftsmanship, history, and fan loyalty.

One man in England had just taken his Ferrari 430 Scuderia off the lot and out on the M1 highway when his life got flipped, turned upside down. Somehow, due to the wet road conditions and the driver’s inability to hold onto his sports car the man sent his Ferrari flying into the air, off the road, and into a pile of flames.

ONE HOUR is all he owned this Ferrari for, something he sheepishly told police after they sensed his embarrassment (via BBC):

In a statement on Facebook, South Yorkshire Police said: “Officers asked the driver what sort of car he ‘had’ to which he replied ‘it was a Ferrari’.
“Detecting a sense of damaged pride he then said ‘I’ve only just got it, picked it up an hour ago’.”

Aren’t you supposed to take some sort of a driving class taught by Ferrari dealers before getting behind the wheel? These are the most powerful cars on the planet. How the shit are you going to plow out onto the wet road and wreck this amazing vehicle within ONE HOUR of purchasing it? Someone needs to get that guy a Vespa.

Jaguar Driver Performs Incredible James Bond-Style The Man With The Golden Gun Mid-Air Corkscrew Stunt

 

 A stunt driver evokes James Bond as he performs a death-defying mid air corkscrew that appears to be straight out of The Man with the Golden Gun.

Terry Grant realised a childhood dream and set a new Guinness World Record by completing a high speed barrel roll in the new Jaguar E-Pac.

Grant took inspiration from Roger Moore’s famous twist in the classic The Man with the Golden Gun, to turn 270 degrees in the air over a distance of 15.3 metres in the car.

He experienced 5G’s of acceleration to perform the impressive barrel roll.

Guinness World Records adjudicators at London’s ExCel centre later presented the certificate to Grant as he guided the E-Pace over the jump, as part of the car’s unveiling.

Multiple record-holder Grant revealed it has always been a dream of his to complete the jump. He now holds the record for the furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle.
