Top 10 Vehicle Safety Devices

If you are purchasing a new vehicle, make sure that it has as many of these safety devices as possible, to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. It may cost a little bit extra, but it is definitely worth it if these things are going to save lives.
There are many other new safety devices that are helping to keep people safe while they are on the roads.
Sometimes, we wonder if technology is hurting more than helping us, and in some cases, it may be. One way that today's technology is really helping us is by providing us with many more devices in our vehicles to keep us safe. Throughout the history of motor vehicles, there have been some significant changes. For instance, in the beginning, vehicles didn't even have seatbelts or windshield wipers. We have come a long way since Henry Ford first started rolling cars off the assembly line. Today's automobiles have all kinds of wonderful features designed to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Here are 10 of the top vehicle sa…

Yellow bird spotted : New 225 Mph-911 CTR with 700hp & carbon body structure

Image
The CTR weighed 2535 pounds and had about 470 horsepower, making it one of the very quickest cars of its era. When Road & Track tested the car, it ran from zero to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and from zero to 100 mph in 7.3 seconds on its way to an 11.7-second quarter-mile. It was possibly even better known for its oversteer-heavy handling, immortalized in the video “Fascination on the Nürburgring,” in which German tester Stefan Rosser wrestles it around the Nordschleife at huge speed and frequently ridiculous angles. Even today, when Nürburgring in-car video has become ubiquitous, it is genuinely thrilling.


Although the new CTR looks strikingly like a 964-generation 911, it isn’t a restomod in the manner of Singer’s products. Rather, it uses carbon-fiber body panels wrapped over a carbon-fiber monocoque and steel front and rear crash structures. There’s an integrated roll cage, and the car features a control-arm suspension at each corner with pushrod-operated coil-over dampers. It’s p…

Liquid glass’ promises to protect your phone from bumps and scratches

If you’re the type that worries about wayward car keys or nail files scratching your pricey smartphone’s screen, fret no more. ProtectPax, a new project on IndieGoGo, is a self-described “liquid glass” protector that claims to strengthen any display.

It sounds almost too good to be true. ProtectPax’s crowdfunding page describes it as a “nano protector” pioneered by titans in the aviation and aerospace industries. Titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the gel fill microscopic valleys on your smartphone’s screen, effectively reinforcing it against bumps and bruises.


“It’s as hard as sapphire or ruby and acts like an optical filter,” the ProtectPax team says. “Your screen [will be] more uniform than when it left the factory.”

Applying it is relatively easy, apparently. All you need do is wipe your smartphone’s screen dry, rub ProtectPax across the surface with an included sealing cloth, and wait ten minutes until the gloss turns “shiny.” Once that’s done, the screen’s ostensibly protected f…

How to spot FAKE wheels ? Know how dangerous they are.!

Image
WHY ARE FAKE WHEELS SO DANGEROUS?  Many fake wheel manufacturers skip essential safety testing. as they are not Willing to pay for the cost of such evaluations and Just want to get the Wheels made as cheaply as possmle.

Fake Wheels are often made With gravity casting. which leaves the wheel With irregular areas of density and lacks the compresswe strength reqUIred by safety standards for wheel manufacturing.



Most fake Wheels do not have a proper protective finish applied. leavmg it vulnerable to serious corrosnve damage.

Fake wheels are rarely tested for performance factors such as dynamic fatigue, braking, cornering and impact. all of which are basic checks for genume wheels.

The materials used in the manufacture of fake wheels are often qUIte porous. making them highly susceptible to cracking or completely shattering.

Fake wheels are manufactured to generic measurements, meaning that they won't meet the requwed fitments to satisfy the vehicle's brake system or suspenston.

2018 Jaguar F-Pace: A New Turbo Four and a Portfolio : The beast

Image
For those with bigger budgets who wish the F-Pace smelled more like a Range Rover, there’s the also-new-for-2018 Portfolio trim level. The softer, extra-pleated Windsor leather seats with 22-way adjustment and winged headrests are exclusive to the Portfolio, which only comes with the F-Pace’s 340-hp V-6. Otherwise, the Portfolio is a Prestige loaded up with three option packages, head-up display, gloss ebony veneer, and 20-inch wheels. Jaguar expects a limited showing, as it’s only offered in Yulong White with Sienna Tan upholstery and, at $64,195 to start, is now the most expensive F-Pace in the lineup, topping even the more powerful F-Pace S.





With a twin-scroll turbocharger, variable valve timing and lift, a new direct fuel-injection system, and an exhaust manifold integrated with the cylinder head, the Ingenium engine is claimed to return greater efficiency and faster warmups. (EPA fuel economy estimates for the F-Pace equipped with the new engine are forthcoming.)

Ferrari 812 Superfast Claims 211 MPH, Even More Insane V-12 Power



For its 70th birthday, Ferrari is once again resurrecting the Superfast name, first seen on the 4.9 Superfast that was the quickest car we tested in the 1950s. Then as now, Ferrari’s most powerful 12-cylinder engine resides in this new 812 Superfast, a hairier evolution of the extreme F12tdf introduced for 2016.
Ferrari bored out its naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 to 6.5 liters and fitted a new 5076-psi direct-injection system for just shy of 800 horsepower (the 8 in the name is a reference to the car’s 800 metric horsepower)—call it 789 in American.


He intake tracts to maximize airflow, the new V-12 achieves that lofty power output at 8500 rpm, along with 530 lb-ft of torque at 7000 rpm. That equals the LaFerrari’s power and bests its 516 lb-ft. It also beats the F12tdf’s 769 ponies and 520 lb-ft. Lest a turbocharged 488GTB enter the debate, a full 80 percent of the Superfast’s torque is available at 3500 rpm. Ferr…

LIGHTNING MOTORCYCLES WORKING ON ELECTRIC BIKE THAT COULD GO 500 MILES PER CHARGE

Image
Electric vehicles like the ones Lightning Motorcycles produces need to go farther on a single charge if they want to become a more dependable option for drivers.

Each year, as people work to become less dependent on fossil fuels, the number of all-electric vehicles increases. However, limited range prevents electric vehicles from completely replacing gas-powered ones. Richard Hatfield, head of Lightning Motorcycles, wants to change everything by creating the first all-electric motorcycle that can travel 500 miles on a single charge.

Lightning Motorcycles built its first electric sport bike in 2006 and has been breaking records since. Three years after its first bike, the company broke the world land-speed record for an electric-powered bike. In 2013, the company won Pikes Peak, a 12-mile race climbing almost 5,000 feet. Completing the 500-mile drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a single charge is the next record Lightning has in its sights.

Currently, Tesla holds the record for t…

Hyundai may buy Chinese batteries amid political tension

Hyundai Motor Co. said Wednesday that it may buy batteries from Chinese companies for a planned China plug-in hybrid after South Korean battery makers failed to make a list of approved vendors last year.

The decision comes amid growing concern in South Korea that Beijing may be retaliating over Seoul's decision to deploy a U.S. anti-missile system. China argues the defense system could undermine its security.

Hyundai to enter China's luxury market with Genesis brand

Hyundai Motor Co. will launch its stand-alone Genesis luxury brand in China within two to three years, as the Korean automaker tries to compensate for thin profits in China's mass-market segments.


Rolling out Genesis in key markets such as China marks a shift for a company, which lacks the brand cachet and tradition of Germany's BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi. Those brands dominate the luxury market globally and in China.

Hyundai Motor said it was conside…
