2023 Cadillac Lyriq EV – Futuristic Styling and Tech That Won't Make It To Production

2023 Cadillac Lyriq EV – Futuristic Styling and Tech That Won’t Make It To Production

The Cadillac Lyriq Looks Great, but A lot of What You See Won’t Arrive on the 2023 Production Model

After some light teasing, Cadillac has finally revealed the Lyriq SUV, but in its current form, it’s just a show car, and the debut video was littered with reminders that not all the technology you see will make it to the production model. With that tidbit out of the way, Cadillac should be commended for showing up late to the EV party in style, most of which is thanks to that new Ultium long-range battery and a new modular electric platform that will pave the way for all of GM to build countless EVs.

Audi To Over-Complicate Cars With Supercomputers and Repair Costs Could Skyrocket

Audi To Over-Complicate Cars With Supercomputers and Repair Costs Could Skyrocket

Supercomputers in cars sounds fun, but when you house most electronic controls in one place, a single failure could mean big bucks

If you strip down most modern cars on the road today, you’ll find a handful of different computer systems. You’ll find a body control module, an engine control module, and some even have smaller computers like modules that control the anti-lock brakes, airbags, or various other bits of technology. This was accurate ten years ago, and as cars have gotten more advance, these very control modules have been tasked with doing more while being interlinked together via a CANBUS system, and some are even complemented with additional control modules for smaller tasks. If one module failed, you could usually replace it and go about your life, albeit after paying a small fortune for the new computer, programming, and installation. Soon, however, Audi looks to simplify things by bringing everything together into by big supercomputer that’s being called an “Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Computer.” It sounds simple, but it’s actually far from simple. Let me explain…

2021 Gordon Murray T.50

2021 Gordon Murray T.50

The Gordon Murray T.50 Is the Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 and Takes Aerodynamics to a Whole New Level

The 2021 Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 is a supercar designed and built by Gordon Murray, the mastermind behind the iconic McLaren F1. A lightweight, aerodynamic car powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 engine, the T.50 was designed as a spiritual successor to the F1, with a focus on the driving experience rather than extreme performance. The T.50 shares many similarities to the old McLaren F1, but every aspect has been improved through the use of new-generation materials and modern technology. Let’s find out more about the T.50, described as "the most driver-centric supercar ever built" in the review below.

1993 McLaren F1

1993 McLaren F1

Arguably the most iconic supercar of the 1990s

Update: The Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 - the Gordon Murrage T.50 - has launched with a similar three-seat configuration and ultra-lightweight, Cosworth-built engine, and the most impressive aerodynamic system of any supercar on the market today. Check out our full review of the Gordon Murray T.50 or all of our recent coverage of it

The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.

Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.

Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.

This Tesla Model 3 Just Proved How Versatile Electric Cars Are, Even in Water

This Tesla Model 3 Just Proved How Versatile Electric Cars Are, Even in Water

EVs are better swimmers than fuel-powered cars, but they are no Michael Phelps!

Unless your internal combustion engine car is rated for a healthy wading depth, taking it into the waters is the worst idea. These fuel-powered mills are susceptible to hydrolocks that could seize the engine in the worst-case scenario. But, is it the same with EVs? Not really. Electric vehicles don’t have an ICE, so they are not prone to hydrolocks, and this Tesla right here proves it.

As you can see in the video, this Tesla Model 3 floated and swam across to the other side in what appears to be rather deep waters for a sedan. This right here goes on to prove how versatile EVs are.

2020 Hyundai Venue - Driven

2020 Hyundai Venue - Driven

Hyundai introduced the Venue subcompact crossover for the 2020 model year as an all-new model that’s based on the same platform as the Ascent compact sedan. As a subcompact, you can get a well-equipped model for less than $20,000, but that affordability doesn’t come without its tradeoffs. Being an all-new model, we’ve been itching to see how Hyundai’s latest entry to the U.S. market holds up, especially against long-running nameplates like the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Kicks. We finally got our chance with the mid-level SEL trim, and this is what you can expect from it.

These two are not exactly direct rivals, but they’re both hot hatches priced similarly… hence this video

A German Court Just Set Precedent For Touchscreen Infotainment Systems to Be Labeled As Driver Distractions

A German Court Just Set Precedent For Touchscreen Infotainment Systems to Be Labeled As Driver Distractions

Touchscreen infotainment systems might be short-lived

Here’s a scenario: You’re driving down the road in your Tesla Model S, and it starts to rain. The wipers automatically come on and set the speed to whatever it deems necessarily thanks to the automatic rain sensors. However, this speed isn’t fast or slow enough, so you reach over and navigate through the menus on your big touchscreen infotainment system to make the adjustment. Suddenly, you end up off the road and embedded into the side of a rather large tree. Sounds bad enough, right? Well, what if using that touchscreen, even for a safety feature, can be considered distracted driving and can cause you to lose your license and pay a fine? Seems ridiculous, right? Well, accident aside, a German court has just ruled that using the touchscreen in a Tesla counts as distracted driving, setting a precedent that could, eventually, lead to legal trouble for anyone spotted touching their screens while driving.

EV West Aims For New Electric Speed Record With a Tesla-Powered Lakester

EV West Aims For New Electric Speed Record With a Tesla-Powered Lakester

There are high chances that we may have a new record holder this time

Although the infiltration into the market will take time, I think it’s high time all of us accepted that EVs are no more a ‘niche’. It’s not just the automakers that are investing in electrification; even aftermarket companies have realized that this is the future and they are adapting to the new ‘electrified’ culture. One such company, EV West, has taken this up a notch by using its technical knowhow to break the land speed record for an electric vehicle. Can it break the record set 23 years back?
