Here’s a video showing you how to create the LED eagle eye rings for your car. That is really awesome, just looks like the one in bimmer. What we called that, angel eye, eagle eye or something. Huh, look pretty much the same. Video after the break.
The reflective tape upgraded to the ring is to make it brighter and stand out better. This simple little trick traps the otherwise lost light that would have escaped into the reflective bowl, causing irregular light pattern inside the headlamp which blends out the ring. It’s not about having the brightess ring; it’s about making it stand out and doing it cheap. LED is the way to go.
Say Hello to the Alfa Romeo Mi.To a hot little car from the italian automaker. Due to be launch in all the major markets starting in July (unfortunately not in the U.S. – yet) the Mi.To is essentially a Fiat Grande Punto wrapped in an 8C Competizione inspired costume.
Available exclusively as a three-door hatchback, the 4-meter long Mi.To will be offered at launch with two petrol engines, a puny 78Hp 1.4-liter and a 155Hp turbocharged 1.4-liter and one turbodiesel, the 120Hp 1.6 JTDM. All engines are paired with a 6 speed manual gearboxes.
Italian photographer Matteo Ferrari took pictures of people who drove the same car for many, many years.
That is crazy! It is a concept from Toyota called the Aygo Crazy. Crazy is powered bt turbocharged 1.8L VVT-i engine with an output of 240 DIH hp and 240 Nm of torque. Crazy is customized with a custom-made body, 17-inch alloys and beefy Goodyear 225/45 rubber.
Crazy weighs 1,050kg and Crazy is capable of 127mph (est), but speed is not its defining quality: this is a machine that exists to be responsive and alive to the driver’s commands.
This is not any new episode of Top Gear, it was added in YouTube a year ago. Just wanna share a little about Perodua Kenari with you guys. There are lots of Kenari here in my city, everywhere. Some said that Kenari’s cornering sucks but I don’t think so. Don’t try to swing around with your Kenari (if you have one at home). Just check it out in this Top Gear segment will do, a cornering test on Toyota Prius, Perodua Kenari and Smart car.
The 2009 Yamaha VMAX is powered by an all-new 65-degree 1679cc V4 engine. Featuring lightweight aluminum chassis, a 5-speed transmission with a slipper clutch, wave-style brake discs with ABS and Brembo master cylinders, and complete suspension adjustability in both the front and rear. The 2009 Yamaha VMAX will costs you $18,000.
Hello GTR fans, here are some shots of the 2009 Nissan GT-R from vanq photography. It is spotted in Singapore, painted in flat black or matte black. At first glance, I thought it was a screen shot from the Gran Turismo game, lol. A thumb up for the photos, nice work.
It is called the “GINA Light Visionary”, this Bimmer Concept has a body made out of cloth. The metal body of the car has been replace with a special, flexible, highly durable and extremely expansion-resistant fabric material that stretches across a metal structure.
With the development of the BMW GINA Light Visionary Model the BMW Group presents trendsetting solutions. Chris Bangle gives us a first impression of the ideas behind the process of sculpturing an experimental study. This is the story behind this innovation!
The latest car to go under their knife is the Ferrari Enzo, and despite the fact that many Ferrari purists would argue that the Enzo is perfection embodied, Edo would disagree.
Changes include a new ram-air intake system, high-flow air filters, FXX style headers, high-flowing cats, a new exhaust system with remote-controlled butterfly valves to adjust sound levels on the fly, and a modified ECU that helps power levels reach 700 hp and 527 lb.-ft. of torque.
That power is then moved through a retuned transmission that replicates the shift times of the FXX bretherin, and then out through the 19 and 20 inch blacked out rims that are an Edo special.
Suspension has also seen some improvements, with compression and rebound that have been adjusted to match the FIA GT MC12.
According to Edo, 62 mph is now dispatched in just 3.5 seconds, and the car will reach 186 mph in just 22 seconds.
I guess even perfection has some room for improvement!

The strikingly aggressive and aerodynamically highly effective front apron (spoiler) perfectly aligned to the wheel arches (widened 35mm on each side), directly becomes apparent. On the upper side of the wheel arches, imsa CFK air ducts have been integrated, resulting in a significant reduction of the drag effect caused by non-aerodynamic airflow at higher and highest velocity. The imsa side-skirts on the underside guarantee the optimum airflow to the imsa diffuser, which has been developed for an aerodynamically perfect interaction with the imsa rear spoiler. Imsa herewith achieved to considerably lower the downforce at higher and highest speeds. The benefits for the driver are a significant enhancement of driving stability, safety and enjoyment.
