As a kid, I played Gran Turismo religously and always modified my favorites to the max. The first GT, I has the Suzuki Pikes Peak Car and maxed it out to the cheater car. Then the rest of the GT games, you had to earn every single license and earn every title to each race.
Well a few years back, Nissan did the GT academy through this video game and had to earn your way through a reality show. Well, it’s that time again and it’s making it’s way around the world started in Australia and now it is in the Philippines looking for that top video game racer and become a REAL racing athlete.
I wish I still played the game and it’s been so long since I had played GT. The last time I played this game was when the 5th installment came out. If I can use my current skills to get into the academy I will definitely jump on it in a heart beat. But my dreams are gone in joining the academy. For now anyway.
A few months ago, I saw the Honda Civic Hatchback prototype and there were no specs yet. This time we have some specs of the car and Honda is releasing the hatchback in Europe and the models will be the same as the U.S. and they will be LX, EX, and EX-L and this would be based on the next Civic R prototype for Europe (rumor has it that the U.S. will be coming out with the Type R as well).
The Civic hatch will be 174 hp and 220 nm (which is 162 pounds of torque) and is 1.5 liter turbocharged motor. So keep your fingers crossed, hopefully there will be news for the Type R soon.
A few years back, Mercedes made their Gran Turismo concept into a reality. This time they unveiled the Vision Mercedes Maybach. Check out the concept that was released on Instagram.
A woman was test driving a car in Arlington, VA and instead of pressing the brakes, she mistakenly went full speed on the gas pedal. No one was seriously injured and the sales consultant was okay.
As you can see, she also hit other parked cars. The vehicle she was testing was valued around $60,000. Do you think she has to pay for the damages and this vehicle? You can decide for yourself.
