IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One- sweet grand tourer at heart

Even though Mercedes has built a road-legal AMG GT3, tuners have been there to make some changes on it and add some better looks and power. Meet the IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. Don’t be fooled with the massive aero parts or the wide arches on IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR One. The car is still a sweet grand tourer at heart. It just happens to look like the bastard child of Godzilla and Predator.

Mind you, IMSA Mercedes AMG GT RXR does have some motorsport skills. It’s not all show. Stating with a AMG GT S, the tuner has replaced major body parts with lightweight carbon fiber pieces. So you have the weight advantage. Then there is the race car-grade aerokit, complementing the  adjustable race suspension, new axle parts and the forged aluminium wheels. The V8 engine is also improved with tweaked turbochargers and a new cooling system. Las but not least, you get track-ready Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tires.

Toyota and Lexus rank the top 2 brands for reliability again?

Based on costumer reports Toyota and Lexus rank the top 2 brands for reliability for the fifth year in a row. The rankings of the remaining 25 brands reflect a game of musical chairs, however. Consumer Reports’ 2017 Auto Reliability Survey found “growing pains” among automakers with new and updated cars and light trucks, with “wonky” engines and “jerky” eight- and nine-speed and continuously variable transmissions, as well as infotainment systems, among the top problems.

The magazine said its survey shows some but not all automakers are quick to respond to major problems between model years. The 2016 Hyundai Tucson crossover scored poorly with owners due to transmission issues, but complaints about 2017 Tucson transmissions dropped by more than half. Similarly, gripes about the in-car electronics on the 2017 Civic were so improved that the complaint rate was only a third of that for the 2016 version.

Yours for an estimated $12,000-18,000 at auctioneers Historics at Brooklands’ November sale, it’s the kind of Porsche you just don’t see every day. Alongside Ferdinand Porsche’s businesses building Porsche cars and the Volkswagen Beetle during the 1950s, he also built tractors. His company built some 120,000 of them as Porsche Allgaier models before buying the latter company outright in 1957. This tractor, therefore, is one of the last associated with the Allgaier name.

Toyota recalls 310,000 Sienna minivans in the U.S.?

About 310,000 Sienna minivans are recalled by Toyota Motor Corp. in the U.S.. The carmaker will work on fixing shift levers that could move out of park, perhaps causing the vehicle to roll away. The recall affects 2005-07, 2009 and 2010 Siennas, the automaker’s North American unit.

“Grease inside the shift lever assembly could transfer to other internal components,” causing them to malfunction, Toyota said. The problem may cause the shift lever to slip out of park without the brake being pressed. This could cause the vehicle to roll away and may lead to a crash. The company said Toyota dealers will remove and replace an “appropriate amount” of grease and replace the shift lock solenoid.

This McLaren will certainly become the most expensive F1 ever sold?

This McLaren F1 is like no other and it’s up for sale with only 148 miles on the clock, which means it covers only the delivery mileage. It never got registered by its single owner, and still wears its factory protective wrapping. By the way it includes all the original accessories including the tool chest and luggage set.

This 1997 example is finished in Dandelion Yellow, while on the inside you’ll find a dark grey interior with contrasting yellow inserts on the driver’s seat. Gordon Murray’s signature is hand-painted on the body, and you get an spare, LM-style exhaust and a GT R steering wheel along with the deal. This is the closest thing to a new McLaren F1 in existence, and it’s up for sale at specialist dealer Tom Hartley Jnr. It’s listed – as you’d probably expect – as ‘£POA’, but this will almost certainly become the most expensive F1 ever sold, exceeding the current record of $15.62 million.

GM now supports an educational effort that includes the Ford name, but the gift is meant to ensure GM is part of the museum’s innovations for future generations.
