  1. Smoke bellows after a suicide car bomb blast attacked a military convoy in Lashkar Gah, Helmand province, Afghanistan November 15, 2015 Reuters/File KANDAHAR: A car bomber attacked a NATO convoy in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Sunday, killing one civilian and wounding four others but without causing casualties among international forces, officials said. Qudratullah Khushbakht, a spokesman for the Kandahar governor, said the attack happened on the airport road, killing a woman and wounding four other people. However a spokesman for the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said there had been no injuries among troops in the convoy. ?We can confirm a suicide bomber attempted an attack on a patrol in Kandahar, Afghanistan, earlier today. However, there were no fatalities or injuries sustained by coalition forces,? the spokesman said in an emailed statement.
  2. Awan denies ownership of the white Toyota SUV impounded by Customs officials. ? Geo News ISLAMABAD: Authorities on Friday impounded a not-customs paid vehicle in Islamabad, which was allegedly under use of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Firdous Ashiq Awan. Customs officials reportedly stopped a white Toyota Land Cruiser on the motorway and demanded documents from driver on Friday, which were provided. Upon inspecting the documents, it was revealed that the vehicle was non-customs paid, with its chassis number forged. When asked, the driver, Imran, told officials that the vehicle is under use of PTI leader Firdous Ashiq Awan. "I have been driving the vehicle for 3 to 4 months and have travelled to Lahore, Sialkot and Islamabad," the driver said in response to the officials' queries about the vehicle. Pictured is the driver, Imran, who was taken into custody. ? Geo News Awan, who has also served as federal minister for information and broadcasting between 2011 and 2013, denied ownership of the SUV. "This is not at all my car," the former minister said, rejecting the claims as "false and baseless." Customs sources, on the contrary, maintained the impounded vehicle belongs the PTI leader. The driver of the said car was taken into custody. The SUV has been dispatched to a laboratory for further verification, it has been learnt.
  3. While Indian cricketers, including the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and others have been winning accolades for their exploits on the field, Mumbai batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been going through a rough patch with little runs to show and limited opportunities at hand. The 29-year-old, who is currently plying his trade in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, has been restricted to the sidelines with Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan looked upon as first-choice openers for Team India. In the only ODI game he played against the Lankans, Rahane managed to score just five runs before struggling further in the Test series. BCCL Clearly, the times have been hard for Team India's vice-captain on the cricket field. But, recent developments suggest that the troubled times have now transcended from Rahane's cricket career into his personal life as well. To make matters worse for him, it has been reported that the Mumbai cricketer's father Madhukar Baburao Rahane has been taken into police custody on alleged charges of mowing down a 67-year-old woman in Kolhapur. Ajinkya Rahane's Father Arrested After His Car Runs Down A Woman In #Kolhapur. 67 Year Old Woman Died In Hospital. #AjinkyaRahane's Father, Mother And Sister Were On Way To #Konkan When Accident Happened. #RIP ðð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/h0u6siiB6g — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) December 15, 2017 According to media reports, Madhukar was driving his Hyundai i20 on National Highway No. 4 when he lost control of the vehicle in the Kagal area and accidentally hit a woman named Ashatai Kamble. The victim was taken to the nearby hospital where she later succumbed to injuries. The Kagal police station registered a case against Madhukar under section 304 A, 289, 337 and 338. Rahane's family - his father, mother and sister - was headed to Tarkarli in Konkan via the Pune-Bengaluru highway for a vacation when the unfortunate accident left them shell-shocked. Rahane is scheduled to leave for South Africa along with the Indian team for the highly-anticipated tour which includes three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is. With a lot of pressure to perform amid immense criticism, the latest developments are bound to add to Rahane's woes.

  5. Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveils the Roadster 2 during a presentation in Hawthorne, California, US, November 16, 2017.Photo: REUTERS MIAMI: SpaceX confirmed Wednesday its CEO Elon Musk plans to blast his cherry red electric car off toward the Red Planet when the company´s Falcon Heavy rocket launches for the first time next month. Many wondered if Musk was joking last week when he tweeted his plans for the Falcon Heavy´s inaugural payload to be his "midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity," the classic song by the late David Bowie. "Destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn´t blow up on ascent," the famed space enthusiast and Internet tycoon said on Twitter on Friday. But SpaceX confirmed to AFP on Wednesday that the plan is for real. Touted as the "world´s most powerful rocket," the Falcon Heavy is designed to one day carry crew and supplies to deep space destinations such as the Moon and Mars. It can propel 119,000 pounds (54 metric tons) -- or the same as a fully loaded Boeing 737 jet -- into orbit, twice the load of the Delta IV Heavy, currently the biggest rocket in operation. The Saturn V moon rocket, which last flew in 1973, was more powerful. There were also two bigger rockets during the Soviet era -- the N1 which was the most powerful first stage ever built, though it failed to launch successfully; and Energia which only launched twice. The Falcon Heavy is essentially three of the California-based company´s Falcon 9 rockets put together, with 27 Merlin engines instead of nine. SpaceX says it will cost a third of what it costs to launch the Delta IV. A date has not yet been set for the Falcon Heavy launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, which has been delayed several times -- but SpaceX says it should happen in January 2018. According to astronomer and blogger Phil Plait, who was able to reach Musk for more details about the plan, the car won´t be sent into orbit around Mars, but will enter "an orbit around the Sun that takes it as close to the Sun as Earth and as far out as Mars." Other items may be added to the payload as well. "Just bear in mind that there is a good chance this monster rocket blows up, so I wouldn´t put anything of irreplaceable sentimental value on it," Musk was quoted as saying.
  6. DUBAI: Gulf Car Festival, the annual event will be held at the Burj Al Arab from December 7 to 9, after its successful inaugural run last winter. In the car festival more than a century of automotive art are on display, from a 1913 classic made by Clement-Bayard to hypercars from Ferrari, Porsche and Dubai company W Motors. ?From our point of view, it went really well and achieved all its objectives,? says James Brooks-Ward, the director of the organisers, Desert Gate Events to a foreign media outlet. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/56d8f74ad93e877e83c141572ceb73ae.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9MTIvNS8yMDE3IDc6MTQ6MzIgQU0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT1QVFRpYXBIL1Jvb0hkRkpxRUhQVkZnPT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] ?For the 2017 edition, there will be 50 cars on display. We have two new manufacturers on board: Jaguar Land Rover and Porsche. Both have some great classics to display and some very interesting new models. ?The elements of manufacturers, classics from around the region and modern bespoke models worked really well last year, providing an interesting story of the car?s evolution,? he says. ?We were keen not to change this but to enhance the event as the exclusive automotive garden party for the Gulf region. There is limited space on Burj Al Arab?s North Terrace, so we insist that everything must be the best-in-class in the region.? Carmakers of Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce and Bentley, while classics highlights include a 1922 Mercedes SSK, a wallet-worryingly expensive 1959 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder and, for off-road connoisseurs, a Series I Land Rover from 1951. British royal Prince Michael of Kent and Sandra Button will judge the festival. ?We wanted to make sure that although we come from an international concours background that this is an event by the region, for the region,? Brooks-Ward explains. ?This means that although one cannot forget the Ferrari 250 GTO from the UK [last year], I was really pleased to see a wonderfully presented [Jaguar] XK120 Roadster from Dubai win a prize. ?We are trying to innovate with each new edition and this year we will be hosting a dinner for the owners, as well an additional evening event at Burj Al Arab,? he says. ?The important thing not to lose sight of, from our perspective, is that the focus must always remain on the cars and the experience of the weekend.?
  7. File photo/ Reuters NEW YORK: A driver deliberately plowed a car into six people during a fight outside a hookah bar in the New York City borough of Queens in the early hours of Sunday morning, killing one and injuring five others before fleeing, police said. One of the struck people was in critical condition while the other four were stable, Lee Jones, a New York Police Department spokesman, said. Two other people were stabbed during the brawl, and were also in a stable condition. Police are still looking for the driver, who was driving a white Hyundai Sonata, Jones said.
  8. Arguably one of the most exciting youngsters in the Indian team, Hardik Pandya has earned the trust of his captain and the selectors on the back of some scintillating performances in the recent past. He has enthralled fans with his blistering batting abilities, while his bowling skills continue to aid Team India in crucial situations. Today, he has a lucrative IPL contract and various brands are running behind him to represent their products and services. But, life has never been this good for Pandya before. There were no fans, no money and not even enough food on the table for the Baroda cricketer. All he had was passion and the will to overcome all odds to achieve what once looked like a far-fetched dream. In fact, the Baroda cricketer had to resort to hiding his car as he did not have enough money to pay its EMIs for two years. Speaking on the show 'Breakfast With Champions', the 24-year-old revealed that he intended to save everything he used to earn back then to pay his car's EMI. Instagram/@hardikpandya93 “I have struggled for three years. We used to save Rs 5 and Rs 10. I still remember in IPL, we got around Rs 70 thousand and we thought we would survive on it for some time. Because we were struggling for almost three years then. We had not paid EMI for two years. We were smart, we used to hide our car. We didn't want the car to go. Everything we earned in those three years was supposed to be saved for the car rather than having something new for us or buying something. It was just car's EMI and food that mattered to us at that time,” he said. Instagram/@hardikpandya93 But, his struggles finally came to an end after Mumbai Indians won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title in his first year with the team itself. “God is kind. My first year, we won the IPL and then I got a cheque of Rs 50 lakhs. From there, I got a car for free and I bought a new car as well. Imagine, three months back we were struggling and fighting for money and within three months I have Rs 50-60 lakhs in my pocket. It was all about saving at that time,” he added. From being a local cricketer who charged Rs 400 per game, Pandya has surely come a long way to become one of the pivotal cogs in the Indian team.
  9. Locals and officials inspect a car that was bombed in Yemen. REUTERS/Nasser Awad/Files ADEN: Assailants detonated a car bomb outside the Yemeni Finance Ministry offices in the southern city of Aden on Wednesday, killing at least two people, hospital officials and residents said. They said the force of the blast shook the Khor Maksar area of Aden ? the temporary capital of the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi ? and causing severe damage to the six-storey building. The force of the blast also shattered windows of adjacent houses, they said. Ambulances were seen racing to the scene, as sounds of gunfire were heard in the area, they said. No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion. An official at the city?s main government-run Jumhouriya hospital said that two people have arrived dead to the hospital, while three others were in critical condition. He said that medics have said they believe that more casualties were at the scene of the blast, but no one could reach them due to an exchange of gunfire that was taking place in the area.
  10. The German car industry risks running short of key raw materials for automotive batteries, hampering a planned boost in the production of electric vehicles (EVs), Germany?s largest industry association BDI warned. ?The risk of running into bottlenecks in raw material supply is increasing because demand is growing faster than production capacity,? Matthias Wachter, head of security and raw materials at the BDI was quoted as saying by Sunday paper Welt am Sonntag. ?Without sufficient supplies for instance of cobalt, graphite, lithium or manganese there won?t be any future technology ?made in Germany?,? he added. Demand for these materials is expected to soar as carmakers rush to embrace EVs in response to governments around the world cracking down on pollution. German carmaker Volkswagen said it is pushing to secure long-term supply contracts to avoid material shortages as it aims to invest 34 billion euros (30.42 billion pounds) in battery-powered cars by 2022 to challenge Tesla Daimler?s Mercedes brand plans to offer an electric version of every model it sells by 2022, while rival BMW, a pioneer in electric cars with its i3 model, has vowed to achieve mass production by 2025 with 12 fully electric models. Recycling companies such as Belgium?s Umicore or US group Retriev Technologies are preparing to extract metals from old batteries so they can capitalise on an expected shortfall in materials.
  11. File Motorcycle crashes are much more likely to cause severe injuries, fatalities and extensive medical costs than car accidents, a Canadian study suggests. While plenty of previous research has documented the potential for motorcycle collisions to lead to far more extensive injuries than car crashes, the current study offers fresh evidence of the financial toll, researchers write online November 20 in CMAJ. Researchers examined data on 26,831 patients injured in motorcycle crashes and 281,826 hurt in car accidents. Overall, the injury rate for motorcycle crashes was three times the injury rate for car crashes, the study found. Severe injuries were 10 times more likely with motorcycle crashes. Motorcycle crashes, meanwhile, cost about twice as much as car accidents to treat over the first two years after the collisions. The average cost with motorcycle crashes was about US$4,569 compared with about US$2,349 for car accidents. ?We have shown that (accidents involving) motorcycles are considerably more dangerous and costly than (those involving) cars, and it is likely that will always be the case,? said lead study author Dr Daniel Pincus of Sunnybrook Hospital and the University of Toronto. ?The study matters because despite considerable improvements in motor vehicle safety over the last 20 years, mortality and morbidity attributed to motorcycle trauma has remained stable or increased,? Pincus said by email. ?Estimating the medical costs of care for motorcycle crashes may provide an additional incentive to improve safety.? Pincus and colleagues looked at medical records for Ontario residents who were treated in emergency departments or admitted to the hospital after car or motorcycle crashes between 2007 and 2013. To evaluate the medical costs of crash injuries, researchers examined compared costs of treating accident victims to a control group of otherwise similar individuals in Ontario who were not in collisions. The annual injury rate for motorcycles was 2,194 people out of every 100,000 registered owners, compared with 718 people out of every 100,000 registered car owners, the study found. With costs roughly doubled and injury rates roughly three times higher with motorcycles than with cars, researchers estimated that the total health costs of injuries was about six times higher for motorcycle owners than for car owners. The study wasn?t a controlled experiment designed to prove whether or how motorcycle crashes might cause worse injuries or higher medical costs than car crashes. Researchers also lacked data on costs covered by private health insurance or indirect costs such as lost wages or reduced productivity incurred by individual patients. Even so, the findings add to the evidence linking motorcycle crashes to a higher risk of injuries, said Dr Lois Lee, an emergency medicine physician at Boston Children?s Hospital and researcher at Harvard Medical School who wasn?t involved in the study. Because motorcyclists are much more exposed on the road, there?s a much higher risk that crashes will result in injuries to the thorax, abdominal area, head and extremities, Lee said. Helmets help prevent head injuries but don?t protect the rest of the body. ?Motorcyclists should understand the increased dangers associated with riding a motorcycle and that the risk of serious injury and medical costs are significantly increased compared with riding inside an automobile involved in a motor vehicle crash,? Lee said by email. ?To try to mitigate head injuries, motorcyclists should wear a helmet and follow the posted speed limit.?
  12. Nothing is more exhilarating than a race machine's engine rumble and its no good if not deafening. That's precisely why a video of the rare Apollo Intensa Emozione doing test rounds on the Cremona Circuit in Italy has car enthusiasts hooked! You can watch the Apollo IE crushing it in this video and fight off the rush with some cold water (we've already done that). The hypercar had been in the news before it's launch, earlier last month. Its makers announced that only 10 units of its kind would be produced in its lifetime, each costing $2.7 million or Rs. 17.50 crores, approximately the same as a Bugatti Chiron. © Apollo Much like its name suggests, it is an intensely emotion eliciting machine, inside out. Blackish grey carbon fibre body work with red accents in brake callipers and wheel caps make it appear like a bat ready to swoop in on its prey. Even the red leather interiors immediately capture your attention. © Apollo But the most significant thing about the IE is what its makers call an "unadulterated sensory experience". Unadulterated? There's a reason why the car sounds like thunder on wheels. The rumble emerges from a belly that feeds on pure gasoline. © Apollo The Apollo IE has a 6.3 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine-- a guzzler and spitter of raw internal combustion generated power. No help from turbo chargers or any sort of hybrid packs, whatsoever. The IE is as old school as it gets. And it's doing pretty good generating 780hp all by itself, power enough to take it to a top speed of 335kmph. That's why they are justified in calling it the "car that lives and breathes with intense emotion". © Apollo Surprisingly, though, even at 780hp, the IE is not street legal. All 10 racers that are to be produced are track-only and will never be seen on the roads. Makers may choose to do as they please, although it's a bit surprising that power heavy cars like Bugatti Chiron and Hennessy Venom F5 come with street homologation but Apollo has decided to keep their beast within circuit binds. © Apollo In that case, we'd like to see it set fire to as many race tracks as possible, our ears have already been alerted, but our eyes are wide open for some blinding vroom action!
  13. Suicide attacks in Iraq are usually claimed by the Daesh group KIRKUK: A suicide car bomber killed at least 21 people in an attack on a busy market in a town north of Baghdad on Tuesday, a security official said. Dozens more were wounded when the attacker blew up the vehicle in the middle of the fruit and vegetable market in Tuz Khurmatu, the official said. A doctor at the town´s general hospital put the number of wounded at 80, some of them lightly injured. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Suicide attacks in Iraq are usually claimed by the Daesh group, which has suffered a string of military defeats and last week lost control of the last town the jihadists held in the country. Tuz Khurmatu is home to a mixed Kurdish, Arab and Turkmen population. It was the scene of deadly violence in mid-October when Iraqi forces retook it from Kurdish control in response to a Kurdish independence referendum. Turkmen MP Niazi Maamar Oglu said an attack of Tuesday´s magnitude had not been seen in the town "for years". A security chief in Salaheddin province, Mehdi Taqi, told AFP that a curfew was imposed immediately after the bombing. "There are still some areas west of Tuz Khurmatu that serve as hideouts for [Daesh]and we will soon be carrying out operations to clean them up," Taqi added.
  14. Pictured is the ill-fated car. ? Geo News MURREE: Six members of a family died after a car plunged into a ravine near Murree Sunday evening, rescue sources said. The incident occurred in Bangara village, rescue sources said, adding the deceased included four minors. They were identified as Haji Asif, his son Faisal Abbasi, and four grandsons. The bodies were shifted to a local hospital for further formalities.
  15. The ultimate road warrior is here, and it's brought to you by Tesla! 0-100kmph in 1.9 seconds Whaaaaat! The fastest production car (by acceleration) on the planet has maed an appearance and it's groovy AF, very shagadelic! Source: Tesla Tesla has finally unveiled their modern roadster and it's a slap on the faces of the fastest marque cars we've ever known. We would recommend it be driven with the top on lest the driver and passenger find their hair being ripped off their heads! The days of the reigning stallion Tesla Model S are now over, even though it'll continue to be a favourite family car for many. But it's safe to say the Model S will rest in the shadow of the sporty and delicious cherry red roadster. The Model S was capable of jumping from 0-100kmph in 2.28 seconds, thanks to the truly ludicrous 'Ludicrous Update', making it the fastest production electric vehicle in the world till a few hours ago. Tesla Musk's real competition is himself, literally, ergo the new roadster. Even the Flash would take longer to attain that kind of acceleration. Ok, perhaps not, but 1.9 seconds is lightening fast (Don't quote us)! Know what's the best part about this? Those that can shell out $200,000 or INR 1.30 crores to buy the base model, can make this ultra fast acceleration a part of their day to day lives. The question that naturally arises: would the higher end model go faster? Source: Tesla Musk is such a tease since he didn't shed any light on what the higher end models were capable of. Even if they came with a similar powertrain, we're sure that another crazy software update could change the way we look at acceleration, in no time. For now, we can go ga-ga over a few things that are absolutely revolutionary about the new roadster: 1. 0-100kmph in 1.9 seconds (can't stress on it enough). 2. A break through mileage of nearly 1000km on one charge-- it's more than two times what the Model S offers. 3. A top speed of over 400kmph. The Model S's 250kmph is a joke in front of that! Also, how much above 400kmph has us licking our lips in sweet anticipation. The one car we would be pitting this roadster against, though, is the Hennessy Venom F5 that seems to be teasing with a top speed of 485kmph! It would be fun to watch them line up over a quarter mile! 0 to 100 km/h in 1.9 sec pic.twitter.com/xTOTDGuwQj — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 17, 2017 4. Three motors, two that power the rear and one powering the front wheels, making it a four-wheel drive. The Model S came with only one that was capable of producing 362hp. Could the Roadster be pumping thrice the power? Could it be over 1000hp? You'd have to wait till 2020 to find out because that's when Tesla plans to make its first deliveries. 5. The design of the Roadster is striking, rounded in the right places and angular where it is required! That red bodywork, though! Source: Tesla We know most shy away from electric vehicles because they are exorbitantly priced and their mileage is limited, Musk has broken ground with the new specs and produced a mind bending hyper car and it costs the same as the cheapest Ferrari (Portofino). What would you choose, an electric roadster that takes you to places at crazy speeds or a classic because of its legacy? Take a look at this video and mull things over while we deal with the goosebumps!
  16. Lamborghini teamed up with researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston to design and create the car. Photo: Lamborghini World?s first self-healing sports car, Terzo Millennio, has been unveiled by Lamborghini. The car can use its sensors to detect any damage and self-repair itself by filling the crack with nanotubes. The car is powered by supercapacitors rather than conventional batteries. Lamborghini teamed up with researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston to design and create the car. Speaking about the project, CEO of Lamborghini Stefano Domenicali said: "Collaborating with MIT for our research and development department is an exceptional opportunity to do what Lamborghini has always been very good at ? rewriting the rules on super sports cars,? according to Telegraph. "Now we are presenting an exciting and progressive concept car. "We are inspired by embracing what is impossible today to craft the realities of tomorrow; Lamborghini must always create the dreams of the next generation." Professor Mircea Dinca, from the MIT, added: "The new Lamborghini collaboration allows us to be ambitious and think outside the box in designing new materials that answer energy storage challenges for the demands of an electric sport vehicle. We look forward to teaming up with their engineers and work on this exciting project." The project started a year ago, Mr Domenicali added: ?Exactly one year ago we have signed an agreement with the MIT-Italy Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology which marked the start of a collaboration between two outstanding entities for the creation of a project that intends to write an important page in the future of super sports cars for the third millennium."
  17. ADEN: Daesh claimed responsibility for a car bombing that security sources said killed 10 people, including civilians, at a security post in Yemen's government bastion of Aden on Tuesday. The militant group claimed the attack in the southern port city via the encrypted messaging app Telegram, adding that a Yemeni suicide bomber had detonated the vehicle. Aden's security chief told AFP: "Eight members of the security forces and two civilians were killed in a car bombing in the central district of Abdul Aziz." "There are a large number of wounded, some of them in serious condition," Brigadier Shalal Shaya said, attributing the blast to a car bomb. Witnesses earlier told AFP they heard a loud explosion followed by gunfire at the main office of UAE-trained security forces in charge of guarding state-owned facilities. The Zayed bin Sultan mosque, which is located near the security office and funded by the United Arab Emirates, was also damaged in the attack. The United Arab Emirates, which has trained government forces in southern Yemen, is a key member of a Saudi-led military coalition. The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 with the aim of rolling back gains made by Houthi rebels and restoring the government of Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power. But the mission has expanded to include operations against militant groups, both Daesh and Al-Qaeda, which have used the chaos of the war to gain footholds in government-held southern Yemen. Daesh also claimed a major attack in Aden on November 5 that killed 35 people, sparking a hostage crisis in a city that had seen a period of relative calm in the war-torn country. The Yemen war has killed more than 8,650 people, the majority civilians, and pushed the country to the brink of famine.
  18. Let's talk about the bodywork of cars. Most performance automobile makers have been using carbon fibre composites, or plastic mixed with metal to cut down on the overall weight of their vehicles drastically. It's light and it can be moulded easily, making it the perfect material for super, hyper and megacars, but there's a teensy bit of a problem here-- it's plastic mixed with either aluminium or steel and never in the history of materials have plastic, aluminium or steel been considered premium, no matter their mind boggling properties. That's why, today we talk about a car that is made with a super light metal that is premium by birth, mind and even lighter than aluminium or steel. © Icona Feast your eyes on the Icona Vulcano Titanium, labeled "the world first titanium supercar". Ooh! The Vulcano's makers say that the inspiration behind its conception is the world's fastest airplane, but to be honest, when we look at it we see a mean looking car that could transform into a jet on command! Never have a vehicle's seams attracted us this much, every crevice is like an underlined promise for some mean action. Icona just released a video of the Vulcano in performance, check it out And there's a reason why the Vulcano's bodywork alone is so appealing, 10,000 man hours have gone into creating this through hand crafting. Every bend and lift that improves the performance as well as adds to its aesthetic appeal has been brought out through the sweat and skill of the best coach builders. Carbon fibre mixed with titanium, which is a rather rigid metal to work with despite its light weight, but only the flourish of titanium stands out and it's almost blinding. It's like a fresh glazed donut hot out of the oven, raw and appetising, gone within seconds of you laying your eyes on it. © Icona That's just the appearance; the powertrain of the Vulcano is equally impressive. While it comes with an optimised power push of 680hp, its 6.2 litre V8 engine can be tuned to produce over 1000hp, so it is at par with the all new Mercedes-AMG ProjectONE that has enthusiasts raving. Much like the ProjectONE, the Vulcano can be taken for a ride on asphalt by a daily driver as well as the race track by a Formula One racer. © Icona The Vulcano made its debut back in 2013 at the Shanghai Auto Show, but only as a concept. Naturally, it roused the interests of many but only for a short while, as no light was laid on its production specifics till August 2016 when it was announced for sale. The car will also be making an appearance at the Dubai International Motor Show this year because Arabs are going to want to own a car that's not only light as air and premium, but also so expensive that it would blow several toupees off! © Icona So how much for this fine whip? Place $2.78 million or Rs. 18.20 crores on the table and take one home, if your mouth has been left hanging, snap it shut because that's how much a car created from a rare and premium metal costs. We'd give away our life savings just to see what it looks like! Check out its production video here.
  19. KARACHI: Passenger car sales jumped 24 per cent to 70,040 units during the first four months of the current fiscal 2017/18 as consumer buying power improved on decades-low financing rate, analysts said on Monday. Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (Pama) recorded passenger car sales at 55,859 units in the July-October period of FY2017. In October alone, local assemblers sold 19,400 cars, showing a 34 per cent increase over the same month a year earlier. ?The monthly sales were highest in the history,? Mohammed Sohail, chief executive at Topline Securities said. Sohail attributed the upward trend to improving buying power, growing popularity of ride-sharing in the country, like Uber and Careem, and low auto financing rate. Analysts said the government?s recent measures to tighten the noose around used car imports also led to a surge in the demand of local cars. The government is likely to bind car exporters to pay duties on used cars in dollars from next year. Cars are imported in Pakistan under personal baggage and gift scheme under which overseas Pakistanis could export cars to the country. Though regulatory duty was not imposed on small used cars, their arrival is slow due to the restrictions, according to the analysts. Topline Securities, in a report, said Pak Suzuki was the major beneficiary as the majority of used car imports fall under lower engine capacity segment. Pak Suzuki?s sales were up 36 per cent to 46,941 units in the July-October period. Honda?s car sales grew 55 per cent to 17,110 units due to the success of new models: Civic/BRV and the recently revamped City. Toyota recorded a 10 per cent rise in car sales during the four months. The brokerage said the industry?s sales grew 32 per cent to 83,809 units in July-October. A total of 21,757 tractors were sold during the period under review. Tractor sales are expected to increase due to lower general sales tax, a Rs2 billion subsidy on tractor buying by Sindh government, and fertiliser cash subsidy. Sales of trucks and buses rose 23 per cent in the July-October period. The upward trend is expected to continue, fuelled by China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects, higher road connectivity, low financing rate, and the change and enforcement of axle load limit per truck on highways by the National Highways Authority. Sales of motorcycles and three-wheelers were recorded at 636,756 units in July-October FY2018 as compared to 504,779 units in the same period a year earlier.
  20. When you think of John Cena, the first thing that is most likely to cross your mind is WWE and his muscles. One of the most famous and loved superstars of WWE, the man has tried his hand at many other things apart from wrestling. From acting in movies to becoming a rapper, he has done it all. And just when we thought there are no more surprises, we stumbled upon a YouTube channel and our lives, as we know it, changed. Forever. via GIPHY If you are an ardent fan of John Cena, you might be aware about his passion for cars and how his collection can make anyone die of jealousy. However, the fact that he also reviews cars is not known by many. And from what we have seen till now, we can declare that he is a total pro at it. YouTube channel 'The Bella Twins' has a separate playlist of videos under the name 'John Cena: Auto Geek' that show John being the crazy enthusiast that he is in around 16 videos. And it won't be wrong to say that these videos perfectly display the close relationship that exists between John and his cars. He talks about the first car, a vintage Jeep Wrangler that he purchased with his first WWE paycheck and we have to agree that it's a beauty. We then see him talk about a number of cars which range from classics to the rare ones like the 2017 Ford GT. He even went ahead and compared a Maserati to a bad relationship. Yes, a Maserati which, for most of us, is the stuff of dreams. Then, of course, there is some casual show-off as John presents to us his stunning 2006 Roll Royce Phantom. The best part about these videos is that we can see how naturally all of this comes to him. He doesn't try too hard simply because he doesn't have to. The immense amount of knowledge and his love for cars are signs that the man deserves to have his own show. If you want to watch more of his videos, then have a look at the playlist:
  21. If you are any other regular bloke and your girlfriend asks you to help her sell her old car with nearly 140,000 miles on it, chances are you will possibly procrastinate for an hour or so, check with your friends if they need it or sell it at a much lesser price. Well, anyone would do that because chances are quite bleak for such old cars. But, when it came to selling her 1996 Honda Accord, Carrie Hollenbeck whipped out her master card that was until now hidden up her sleeve – her fiancé Max Lanman. © YouTube Clearly, commercials are the best platform for marketing any product, starting from a mere toothbrush to a luxurious car. Lanman, who is a filmmaker by profession, put this knowledge to practical use by creating a parody ad to sell his fiancée's old used car. With this one ad, Lanman has turned the tables and has redefined creativity for this entire generation, making any leading advertising agency burn with jealousy. With this ad, Lanman also proved how easy it is to fool a person into believing anything and everything that is mentioned in a commercial. The couple listed this hilarious ad on eBay while selling their car, which they have named 'Greenie'. © YouTube So did the trick work? Hell yeah! It not only worked, but even catapulted the biddings, which started at a $499, to thousands. Within the first week, the bidding had reportedly reached $150,000 and the video had nearly 4 million views. Such insane were the number of reactions and bids that eBay had to cancel the listing due to “unusual bidding activity”. From the driver putting the key into the ignition, 'Stuart Little' the mouse' nemesis Snowbell the cat keeping the driver company, to a man with a baritone voice (in the backdrop of peppy music) narrating the car's unique features; this ad was so good that millions of people wanted to take the car home. So, eventually, eBay again decided to help 'Greenie' find a new owner and the biddings are said to end soon (possibly by the end of this week). Lanman reportedly said, “A few years ago, I was driving to Big Sur with my (then) girlfriend Carrie to go camping on Highway 1. While we were traversing gorgeous switchbacks, it felt like (we) were driving in a car commercial and that's when it hit me that it would be really funny to make a high-end commercial for a crappy car.” Well, Lanman gets full marks for his ingenuity and creativity and making it look like a professional car advertisement. An overjoyed Lanman was further quoted as saying, “I'm beside myself. I could never have imagined that this thing that I made with my friends…is now being watched by people all over the world.” © YouTube The ad further concludes that this car is “for people that have life figured out and just need a way to get somewhere.” Well, such words of wisdom are rare to find these days. Currently, both Lanman and his fiancée might be basking in the new found fame, thanks to Greenie who has been driving them with an almost flat tyre; and they have all the reasons in the world to do that. As for Greenie, well if a person gets his morning cup of coffee along with a furry animal to cuddle with inside a car, what more can one possibly ask for! After all, like this fake ad says, “Luxury is a state of mind.” Source: NBC Bay Area
  22. TOULOUSE: A man rammed a car into three Chinese students near the French city of Toulouse on Friday, injuring one of them seriously, police sources told AFP. The 28-year-old driver, who was arrested immediately afterwards in the city's Blagnac suburb, acted "deliberately" but was not on a list of known extremists, one source said, asking not to be named. He had previously suffered severe psychiatric problems and was released from a court-ordered hospital stay in December 2016, the Toulouse prosecutor said. The man had about 10 previous convictions, the prosecutor told the BFMTV news channel. The investigation is to be handled by regular judicial police rather than Paris's anti-terror unit, he said. BFMTV said the man was known to police for previous non-terror crimes. All three of Friday's victims, who were on a crosswalk when the ramming occurred, were in their twenties, with a 23-year-old woman the most seriously injured and two men aged 22 and 23 also hurt. The woman's life is not in danger, police said. France has been a victim of a series of vehicle attacks by militants inspired by Daesh, but there was no immediate confirmation of the driver's identity or motive. In July last year, a Tunisian man ploughed a 19-tonne truck into a crowd in the southern city of Nice, killing 86 people. Toulouse in southwest France is the home of the Airbus plane manufacturer.
  23. New Delhi on Thursday announced driving restrictions that will take half the cars in the city off the roads after a spike in pollution that doctors have labelled a public health emergency. Photo: AFP file NEW DELHI: New Delhi on Thursday announced driving restrictions that will take half the cars in the city off the roads after a spike in pollution that doctors have labelled a public health emergency. "The situation in Delhi is so bad and if the pollution can be brought down in any way, we will do it," the city's transport minister Kailash Gahlot told reporters as he announced plans to limit private car use to alternate days from Monday.
  24. There are race cars like the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo, fantasy cars like the Batmobile, luxury daily drives like the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead and then there are cars like the Lykan Hypersport--a new breed of cars altogether. A car that is modelled after a werewolf is a level up from all cars that you've seen or experienced in your lifetime. Sure it isn't a space craft, but it's got features that you could find on one, making it a drool-worthy piece of mean machinery. © W Motors We'll come to the specs in a bit, but let's talk about one of the most luxurious things about the Lykan first- its LED headlamps. Did you know that each of its eyes is encrusted with 220 diamonds? Your girlfriend has been dreaming about you giving her a Tiffany trinket for a while now, and here we have a car that comes encrusted with them (by the way, the buyer can opt to choose the stones to outline the headlamps). © W Motors It's not just the headlamps that are out of the world, though. Another extremely bewitching feature of the Lykan is its 9 inch "holographic mid-air display system with interactive motion". Mind you, this state of the art system is exclusive to the Lykan and is a first of its kind. The system allows the driver and riders to integrate with the multimedia and functional systems and control them. © W Motors © W Motors The system can understand and respond to gestures, help customise the dashboard and even store information on an integrated hard drive, spy style! Spaceship, anybody? Now over to the juicy meat. The Lykan is a pure Middle-Eastern road beast conceptualised and brought to life by W Motors (that explains the Diamonds, because what is luxury if it isn't flaunted through in-your-face affluence). Only 7 units of the car have been produced to date, making it a rare jewel in the world of automobiles. We mentioned that its design was inspired by the first werewolf in history, which explains its sharp wind-cutting angular body and ribbed rear. The entire body is made of carbon composite making it light as a feather, ergo, super duper fast. © W Motors Arab's first supercar, the Lykan packs a 3.7 litre F6 twin-turbo engine that is capable of producing a pull of 780 ponies. The vehicle can go from 0-100kmph in 2.8 seconds and promises of a top speed of 385kmph. The car made its debut in 'Furious 7' two years ago. So why exactly are we talking about it right now? Because not only does this car fly, old as it might be, it still stands strong among the most expensive and rare cars in the world till date. It is priced at $3.4 million or a whopping Rs 22 crore, and you'd have to be one in seven globally, to be able to get your hands on it. It is also still the only car to have a holographic display and infotainment system, to this day. Clearly it's a supercar way ahead of its time, which is why we thought it prudent to do a quick revisit. Diamond-studded headlamps…it'll be a while before we get over that.
  25. Hennessey Venom GT. 7.0 litre twin turbocharged V8 engine A power push of 1451hp A top speed of 435.31 kmph 0-100kmph in 2.4 seconds A masterpiece. A world record holder. A vehicle to reckon with. © Hennessey And then there is the Hennessey Venom F5. 7.4 litre Twin Turbo V8 Engine Ponies at work generating power over 1600hp Teasing with a top speed of 485kmph 0-100kmph that would be significantly lower than any of the street legal cars to have been made in this world, but that can only be ascertained once it's out for performance testing. © Hennessey The car was recently unveiled at the SEMA 2017, Las Vegas and we can't stop thinking about the mind blowing specs. Let us focus on the "All-American" 1600 horsepower, to begin with. The only street legal car in the world that is able to produce that kind of power is the one-of-a-kind Maxximus G-Force. It is able to do 0-100kmph in 2.1 seconds. Do you know what that means for the Venom F5? If not the same duration, then under and we're getting goosebumps just thinking about how much under. © Hennessey This banana coloured eat-worthy monstrosity has been created to break hearts and records at the same time. Despite the power of 1600 race gods bestowed upon the beast, the car is actually street legal. Forget that, even F1 cars struggle to attain 485kmph and here's a street legal F1 racer ready to put on a show on city roads and highways. Whaaat? That means, for those who are able to get their hands on it, the hyper car will be as good as an aircraft on the road! The Venom F5 is expected to do 0-300kmph in less than 10 seconds and 0-400kmph in under 30. How much under 30 seconds will make the Koenigsegg Agera RS sweat for a while because they set a record for doing it in 26.88 seconds, earlier last month. © Hennessey But that's not all, the Agera RS was also crowned the fastest production car in the world just a few days ago. When the 1600hp is at play, however, we can only imagine how soon there could be a re-coronation ceremony-- there's a high possibility that the Venom F5 would take over with its nose held high (or firmly laid in the ground, because it's a low flat-floored car, after all)! © Hennessey The makers say that the "Venom F5, (is) named for the most powerful tornado speed winds on the Fujita scale" and that it is designed "to be timeless so that in 25 years it will still have a level of performance and design that will be unmatched". It may be timeless but it will be wiping out several performance records from the timeline of automobile history, to be honest, that's what we're super excited about. © Hennessey The Venom F5 is expected to be priced at $1.6 million or Rs. 10.33 crore and only 24 units of it are being planned to be built in its lifetime. Buyers can expect deliveries in 2019, and we'll wait for the vroom-smash!
