Next-gen 7-Series’ electric version spotted

My Blog
[ad_1] A prototype for BMW's next-generation 7-Series has been spotted again. The tester is for a battery-electric version that's likely to feature some styling elements distinct to the rest of the 7-Series lineup, like a sealed-off grille. It may also have a unique name, such as "i7." Other shots show prototypes with internal-combustion engines. 2023 BMW i7 (7-Series) spy shots - Photo credit: S. Baldauf/SB-Medien There's a lot of camouflage gear to hide the true shape, particularly around the C-pillar to mask the latest take on BMW's signature Hofmeister kink. There is also a rearward facing camera mounted to each of the front fenders, as well as multiple cameras and a large sensor in the grille area. The latest spy shots show the true shape of the grille, which is…

Hyundai restomods a Pony and Grandeur with electric powertrains, wild LED lighting

My Blog
[ad_1] Hyundai recently revealed two restomods of important models from its past with electric powertrains. Over the weekend, the automaker unveiled an EV concept based on the first-generation Grandeur. Launched in 1986, the Grandeur was Hyundai's first attempt at a flagship luxury sedan, setting the stage for today's Genesis luxury brand. The Grandeur EV restomod retains most of the original car's boxy styling, but with subtle tweaks to the grille, side moldings, exterior mirrors, and wheels. It also has the pixelated headlights and taillights that are a feature of Hyundai's new Ioniq EV sub-brand.

2022 GMC Sierra 1500, 2022 Audi A3 and S3, 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades: The Week In Reverse

My Blog
[ad_1] We drove the 2022 Audi A3 and S3; Ford revealed a new Bronco Everglades is coming; and GMC introduced the 2022 Sierra 1500. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority. We drove the 2022 Audi A3 and S3 on Colorado mountain roads, which was the ideal setting for these smart, small sport sedans. Both cars feel tied down to the road, and while the S3 gets more power and better brakes, it's still more of a canyon carver than a track machine. GMC unveiled the 2022 Sierra 1500 with new high-end ATX4 and Denali Ultimate trims. The $80,000 Denali Ultimate comes loaded with all the equipment and features a luxurious interior with Mount Denali topographical maps etched into the dash and seats. The ATX4 improves upon…

The Bugatti Bolide’s air scoop was designed like a golf ball

The Bugatti Bolide’s air scoop was designed like a golf ball

My Blog
[ad_1] The Bugatti Bolide track car has some radical design features, including a massive roof-mounted air scoop with an unusual design inspiration. It turns out the engineers borrowed an aerodynamic trick from the humble golf ball. Golf balls are remarkably aerodynamic. Their dimpled surface allows them to travel about twice as far as a smooth ball, according to Bugatti. That's because the dimples create turbulence on the surface of the ball, allowing air to adhere better and as a result reduce drag. One of Bugatti's engineers decided to apply the same principle to a car. Bugatti Bolide dimpled roof scoop This engineer began experimenting with dimpled surfaces as part of a master's thesis, adding dimples to the cooling channels of a 3D-printed titanium brake caliper Bugatti developed. For the Bolide,…

My Blog
[ad_1] Peugeot on Monday revealed the first details of the hybrid powertrain for its FIA World Endurance Championship Le Mans Hypercar (LMH) class race car.

The Ford Mustang almost got a V-10 based on a truck engine

The Ford Mustang almost got a V-10 based on a truck engine

My Blog
[ad_1] The Ford Mustang has never had an engine with more than eight cylinders, but in the early 2000s, Ford considered upping the cylinder count. Engineers briefly worked on an aluminum V-10 for the Mustang, according to a recent DrivingLine report. The Mustang V-10 would have been based on the 6.8-liter Triton V-10, used in the F-Series Super Duty pickup truck and Excursion SUV at the time, as well as E-Series vans and buses. The Triton engine was an outgrowth of Ford's modular line of V-8 engines; it was effectively a 5.4-liter V-8 with two cylinders added on. To create the Mustang V-10, engineers at Ford's Powertrain Research and Advanced Engine Development group took the same approach, but with the smaller 4.6-liter V-8. This resulted in a 5.8-liter V-10 that…
