The engine of the year for us in the USA is most definitely the new 2.5L 5 cylinder turbo that is being introduced in the TT-RS this autumn.  The TT-RS is probably the most exciting sports car being released on US shores in 2011 after the truly remarkable BMW 1M.  I had a conversation with Audi Of America’s product manager today about the imminent launch of the car.  The details are still in their final stages, but the first cars will be delivered in the early Autumn it seems.  Exciting stuff—especially as I have a few friends ordering one.   For anyone here interested—ordering guides are now available from Audi dealers across the US—pricing, however, is not finalized yet.  The car will be arriving, however, with the upgraded 360hp “RS Plus” configuration.  It’s gonna be an epic daily driver…

So here’s a car which shares the glorious engine….but a car which will never make it to US shores in this form—-that being said, the 2013 Audi A3 which is slated for US shores may end up with an RS3 version with the same glorious engine—so all is not lost!

2011 video game preview: Dirt 3

Next week, i am trading in my dusty, neglected old Playstation 2 for a new Playstation 3 with Gran Turismo 5.  Gran Turismo 5 is released next week, on the 24th….i’m damn excited.  The previous games in the series have been amazing…..each one bettering the previous.

Here’s another game I just found out about today.  It will be out in 2011.  It’s called “Dirt 3” a continuation of the Dirt series of Rally games.  Looks like my GT5 disc is going to have some company in the flat!

faster beast: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport!

CLICK ON ANY OF THE PICS TO GET HI-RES

No, 1001 HP simply wasn’t enough!  It is now 1200 HP, and the top speed is now officially 267 mph, which makes it THE fastest road car in the world…………..again!

It is quite simply the fastest, most outrageous, maddest, and amazing car in the world—-and it’s been reborn to be even better.

Toyota = FAIL FAIL FAIL!

Well Toyota has really f*cked up, haven’t they?   Too bad Prius weren’t recalled though….that’s sad. Recall a bunch of Lexus-es (Lexii for plural??) while you’re at ToMoCo…for being BORING!

At least 5.3 million cars are being recalled across Europe and the United States.  Toyota has stopped production of all of these cars, AND if you are gonna walk into a Toyota showroom and try to buy a Corolla (why!??!), they will not let you—–as Toyota will not sell you a new car affected by the recall.

Massive fail…..Toyota is in BIG trouble.  Japan gonna bail em out? let’s see what happens….
