Portugal now has a fleet of eight Leaf police cars

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power drew big crowds who enjoyed three days of speed, power, ...

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPoP) turned on its annual kaleidoscope of horsepower, adrenalin and engineering intrigue this week. The four wheel lap record was shattered by a Caterham, the BAC Mono was the fastest road car, while the cars running against the clock included an Ariel Atom 500 V8, Radical SR3 SL, Aston Martin One-77 and Noble M600. There was a Volkswagen "Schwimmwagen" amphibian, an Edison-Puton Monowheel, and a curious BMW built during WWI using a 45.8-liter V12 BMW aircraft engine. The gallery is a wonderful pictorial celebration of CPoP.  Read More

The Juke Box car audio system puts the average bass thumper to shame

The Nissan Juke may be one of the fugliest cars on the market today, but the growing number of funky special editions is making it pretty interesting. We've seen the 480-hp Juke R and the kitted out Juke Nismo, and now we have the Juke Box, a Juke that's outfitted in 19,000 watts of speakers.  Read More

Audi takes Le Mans 1-2 with R18 e-tron quattro hybrids

Audi achieved another near perfect race result at the Le Mans 24 Hour today with the first victory of a hybrid vehicle and a stunning 1-2 for the Audi R18 e-tron quattro. Both Toyota hybrids didn't finish and neither did the Nissan Delta.  Read More

The Juke Nismo gets a body kit and performance upgrades

If you don't happen to have upwards of half a million dollars burning a hole in your investment portfolio, Nissan has another high performance Juke besides the Juke-R. The Juke Nismo isn't nearly as extreme as its big brother, but it does have a variety of enhancements over the stock Juke. And with its red mirror caps and aggressive body kit, it doesn't look half bad either. Nissan is revealing the production version of the hot-hatch crossover for the first time at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  Read More

If you're in the market for a new Nissan, you may just be able to throw away your tire gauge and erase terms like "cold pressure" from your mind. Nissan is launching what it calls the Easy Fill Tire Alert system, an intuitive feature that handles everything about tire pressure save for actually putting the air in.  Read More

Seth Kettleman's turboshaft-powered, jet fuel-burning 1983 Datsun 280ZX

Datsun's 280ZX was a pretty awesome car in its own right. Seth Kettleman, however, decided to take a classic 1983 model, and augment it in a rather unique way – he replaced its original six-cylinder power plant with an ex-US Air Force Garrett GTP turboshaft engine. The end result looks pretty sharp, but it really has to be heard to believed ... and, if you like what you hear, you can buy the car now for US$16,000.  Read More

As car ownership grows, congestion grows and parking in city centers becomes more expensiv...

Auto China is probably the most influential automobile show in the world at present. China now produces and consumes more cars than any other nation, so its needs will heavily influence personal transport globally in coming decades. Some early trends are emerging as to what we'll see, and as congestion in China increases and parking centrally becomes prohibitively expensive, a car will increasingly only get you part of the way to your destination. Geely and BMW both showed cars with inclusive last-mile transport at Auto China, but the number of last mile Transportation Appliance options under development by auto manufacturers is growing rapidly.  Read More

The DeltaWing Project - half the power, half the weight, twice the aerodynamic efficiency

Gizmag is essentially about new thought - new and better ways of doing things. Hence the DeltaWing Project which we detailed previously, is of greater fascination than most current auto racing projects because the 1.6-liter Nissan DIG-T turbo-powered car is hugely innovative. Racetrack testing is well underway and the car recently had its first serious outing in the wet at the U.K.'s Snetterton circuit.  Read More

The Infiniti LE is more than just a concept; it will be Infiniti's first zero emissions ve...

The first complaint about current mainstream electric vehicle options is that they don't offer enough range. The second is that they only come in small and, some might say, unattractive packages like the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi i-Miev. Infiniti may not have solved the former problem, but it's done its best to solve the latter with the LE concept. The concept gives the Nissan Leaf a sportier, more upscale brother.  Read More
