Audi TT car review

Stig drives the Audi AS1 and the Audi TT MTM Bimoto around the track. The AS1 is super-light and the Bimoto has two engines so they should both be very fast - but can either of the German cars beat the British Radical in the power lap times?

Car Reviews - 2011 Range Rover Supercharged

Car Reviews - 2011 Range Rover SuperchargedBy Jason Neeson

Unlike many of the modern day Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV), the Land Rover Range Rover is a true off road capable SUV that feels just as comfortable on paved roads as it does in the dirt. The Range Rover has a body on frame construction, like a truck, which makes it a very capable off road vehicle. The Range Rover has been in production since the 1970's and is classified as a luxury vehicle. Many of the early models from the 1970's can still be seen driving around, which is a testament to their durability and high quality.

The modern Range Rover is extremely luxurious with all of the latest technologies one would expect from a luxury car. The interior is lined with premium soft-touch leather and includes a lot of insulation to reduce cabin noise. It can seat five adults comfortably and is equipped with the highest quality sound system and includes an in-dash 6 DVD system for the occupants to watch movies. The 2011 Range Rover comes with a hard disk based navigation system that can be synced with local traffic control centers to avoid highly congested streets. The front leather seats are heated and cooled and also have a massage function, which comes in very handy after a hard day's work. There is a three zone climate control system for the driver, front passenger, and the three rear passengers.

On the exterior, the 2011 Range Rover has the same basic shape as models from the 1970's but it has been refined over the years to give it a contemporary look fit for the 21st century. The vehicle comes with aluminum wheels, High Intensity Discharge (HID) head lights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail-lights.

Under the hood is a supercharged 5.0 liter Ford V8 engine that produces 510 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 461 pound feet of torque at 5,500 rpm. The power is delivered to all four wheels via a six speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The Range Rover can reach 60 miles per hour from standstill in 6.2 seconds, which is very impressive considering it weighs over 4,000 pounds, and can reach a top speed of over 140 miles per hour.

There are various styles and configurations that the Range Rover can be order with. There is the standard version which starts at around $70,000, the next step up is the supercharged version which costs around $100,000, and the extremely luxurious version called the Autobiography that costs well over $125,000 and is fitted with all leather interior surfaces including the dashboard, door panels and even the ceiling.

For those looking for a bit less off-road capabilities and more sporty driving dynamics, there is the Range Rover Sport which comes with a completely different sporty body.

Ford Fiesta Zetec Car Review

Ford Fiesta Zetec Car ReviewBy Melissa Pye

Driver Comfort & Visibility
Overall the visibility in the Zetec is good. There are only 2 areas of slight concern for vertically challenged people like me (Entertainment

This is worth a mention. Not only can you control your choice of tunes with a button on the steering wheel, but you can connect just about any portable music player including a USB stick, MP3 player and iPod. The Zetec also has a small screen located in the centre of the dash showing you what is playing.

It's no good looking sexy in your car if you're not safe. The Fiesta has you covered. ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution and front passenger and driverairbags are standard across the range. The Zetec also has Dynamic Stability Control, Emergency Brake Assist and head, thorax and driver knee airbags as standard. You can opt for these additional safety features on the other models for a small $1,000, which is well worth it.

Rear Passenger Comfort
It's not a huge car, so the back seat will not sit 3 burly blokes comfortably. But at least their noggins won't hit the roof thanks to the more than generous head space. However, if you're shipping around kids or small dogs, then space is not an issue.

Some good storage options for a car of this size. There are front door pockets which will hold a bottle of water, a good sized glove box and a small coin holder on the right hand side of the steering wheel. In the rear you'll also find pockets on the back of the front and passenger seats. It's got 3 good drinks holders that are well positioned in between the driver and passenger seats.

The boot is not huge, but you will easily fit in a gym bag and some shopping with the rear seats in use. We popped in 2 overnight suitcases and 2 brief cases with ease. If you need even more space, just fold the rear seat down.

Green Factor
Plenty of green news here. It consumes about 6 litres per 100kms, has a greenhouse rating of 7.5 out of 10 and has been awarded 4 stars by the GreenVehicleGuide. Cheap to run and not too harsh on the environment.

The Drive
We took the cars for a spin in the Adelaide Hills to really test its road holding, acceleration and braking. The Fiesta loved the hairy turns and steep inclines. It performed incredibly well and was a very fun car to drive. One very clever feature is its speed sensitive steering called Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS). Basically the steering is lighter when you're going slower, like parking, and it firms up when travelling at speed, which gives it a sporty feel.

What We Love About the Fiesta
Healthy list of safety features, great audio system, iPod and MP3 player compatibility, blue tooth technology (in the Zetec) and the seat trim. You've got a choice of 11 exterior colours with a stand out lime metallic. And yes, we do love its styling. It's sporty, cheeky and a little bit sexy!

Test Drive Tips
The indicators are located on the left hand side of the steering column, thanks to its European origins. Not so bad if it's raining, but on a dry day you'll feel a bit of a goose putting on your wipers each time you go to use your indicators!

If you are thinking about test driving this car, you might also want to consider the Hyundai Getz, Kia Rio, Toyota Yaris, Suzuki Swift and Holden Barina.

Give a Gift - Give Away Your Scrap Cars!

Give a Gift - Give Away Your Scrap Cars!By Stuart Breaker

There are plenty of people out there who spend plenty of their time scratching their heads wondering how best to get rid of their old cars. It can be an expensive business, and not a lot of people want to try to keep their old cars on the roads. Of course, plenty of people do this, but it is not the best news in the world for all of these old cars to still be out on the roads given the environmental factor. Old cars have far worse emissions by and large in comparison to newer cars, so it is always a good thing when an old car is put to bed in the proper manner! Of course, if you are less worried about the environment and more worried about your own pocket, it is worth remembering that most cars that are more than ten years old will be worth less than what you spend on them in any given year.

So it seems fairly clear that the best thing you can do with old cars - both financially and in terms of the environment - is to get rid of them, and this doesn't have to be a chore. A lot of people are now discovering a fantastic program where you can have your old car towed away for free. If you want to scrap cars, all you have to do is get in touch with the company who will take your car for free! Not only will they take your car for free, they will also donate any money that is made on the car to a charity of your choice! The process is so simple. All you have to do is to get in touch with the company, and then that company calls in an affiliated scrap merchant, and they come and collect the vehicle. The vehicle is either scrapped, or it is sold at a salvage auction, and the proceeds go to a charity of your choosing. You can select from hundreds of different ones on the website!

When you consider how much money you could potentially spend on the constant repair of an old car, and you then consider the cost of a new vehicle, if you really think the whole thing through you will realise that you will be better off in the long run with a much newer car. Of course you will have an initial payment to make, but over the years you will save an enormous amount of money. Getting rid of your old car is so easy, and when you have an opportunity to help others so easily,then it is a great choice to make. is perfect for anyone who is looking to scrap a car and likes the idea of being able to help those in need. They are committed to car recycling, and are proud of their position as a company looking to help charitable foundations wherever possible.
