Over the past year, Tesla has been in the news quite a bit for their Autopilot malfunctions. Just yesterday, a Tesla driver in Laguna Beach hit a parked police car while using his autopilot. Tesla responded by saying that customers must “maintain control of the vehicle at all times.” While the news continues to portray
When he’s not DJing and tearing up the stage, Getter is modifying his beautiful Audi R8. For Getter’s latest car modifications, Getter decided to have Impressive Wrap cover his Audi in Avery gloss dark grey and had Zito wheels installed. “Love it dude… Hell yeah!” Getter says. “About to skurrt on out of here, dude!”
A twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, boasting 647 horsepower at 6,250 rpm and 550 pound-feet of torque at 5,900 rpm, will be the hallmark of Ford’s new 2017 GT supercar, and of course, deadmau5 already bought one.
With a top speed of 216 mph, the new GT is the fastest production car in Ford’s history, and in track testing, the GT outperformed both a McLaren 675LT as well as a Ferrari 458, clocking a time of 2:09.8 over the others’2:10.8 and 2:12.9, respectively. The new model also has a dedicated Track Mode, which lowers the beast 50 mm, restricts select air channels, and extends the rear wing for more downforce and braking power, amongst other things.
Only 250 of the vehicles will be produced per year, and production is taking place in Canada’s Multimatic in Markham, Ontario. It’s only a matter of time before we see some mischievous uploads from deadmau5 regarding his new toy…
Studies have long battled over whether or not loud music negatively impacts driving, and there is plenty of research to support both sides of the argument. However, when it comes to hearing and reacting to emergency vehicles nearby, that’s all about to change.
An experiment in Stockholm, Sweden is outfitting ambulances with a system that interrupts in-car audio when the emergency vehicle is in proximity. The interruption is similar to emergency weather updates or other crisis, and all that is required is receiving cars to be equipped to support the Radio Data System format, which encompasses nearly all of today’s vehicles.
The interruption system also operates according to speed, which gives advanced notice to vehicles traveling at higher speeds, taking into account highways. Only a small number of ambulances will be field-testing the new system in the early part of this year, though the technology’s effectiveness remains to be seen. If it works, those precious seconds saved by having traffic
For Lexus’s latest marketing campaign, they’ve devoted a team of engineers to creating the Lexus LIT IS: a high-tech concept car outfitted with 42,000 LEDs (well, 41,999 to be exact). What’s more, each LED is “programmed with dynamic designs, and able to react to music and movement.”
The finished design immediately recalls the kind of full-scale production you’d see at a festival or rave, with flashing LEDs that arguably even outdo many modern day stage productions.
Unfortunately for any car enthusiasts with deep pockets, the Lexus LIT is not actually for sale and merely a concept design. With that said, it did make its way into Dua Lipa’s new video for “Be The One.”
Watch Lexus’s full reveal of the LIT IS above — set to a flurry of dance tracks — which showcases the gorgeous potential of the concept car.
You wanna talk about “Lit”? Take a look at this new concept car from Lexus which features nearly 42,000 individual LEDs and a mile of wire.
This concept isn’t for sale, but it’s damn pretty to look at and completely functional. The LEDs respond to gesture and music and are able to create complex patterns across the surface of the car. The only thing you can’t do is spell out “Fuck you” on the front grill when someone cuts you off.
You can really see the car in action in the music video for Dua Lipa’s “Be The One.”
We saw the ryders assemble in Hollywood, CA at the prestigious Avalon Theater for the debut of JOYRYDE’s C.A.R. (Calling All Ryderz) stage set up, which resembled an all out apocalyptic drive in movie theater decked out head to toe with a real 969 Dodge Charger DJ booth, giving a truly authentic vibe to the show. JOYRYDE continues his live stage production and this time he’s bringing it to New York City on December 30th at the renowned Webster Hall. Ryderz of the big apple will get the chance to see JOYRYDE as you’ve never seen him before!
