Shooting of the Fast and Furious 9 has already commenced and someone has spotted the new Toyota Supra on the set of the car action movie.blogentry-133713-0-61015400-1566472257.thumb.jpg.0bbf523236213153af201f3811995ad0.jpg

Filming is currently taking place at Tbilisi, Georgia, where some action-packed stunts have taken place. Thanks a Instagram user, we can also see that a orange Supra will feature in the 9th installment of the movie, a nod to the original that was driven by the late Paul Walker.

Other than that, the article on Car and Driver also reported that a black 1970 Dodge Charger was present on the set. You can bet that the car will be driven by Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!



    A very green Toyota Levin

    At a recent classic car show in Japan a tuning company called Tec Art's, not to be confused with the Porsche tuning company Techart as it has that funny Japanese punctuation, had exhibited another one of those classic Japanese cars that have been tweaked by adding current automotive tech. This makes the a 20 or 30 year old classic run reliably on current technology for the ease of its owners. Tec Art's Eco Hatchi-Roku (86) is one of those type of modded cars but it has a twist. This old AE86 is an eco-mentalist's dream of a tree hugging classic car.   According to the design brief, the car is supposed to be more fuel efficient the original 4A-G engine and environmentally cleaner too. The engine is still a 4A-G but it now runs an APEX Power FC stand alone programmable ECU. This allows Tech Art to precisely tune the engine's air-fuel ratio.   The power steering has been modernized by replacing the hydraulic motor system with an electric motor (see photo above). It uses the original steering rack but it has been modified so that an electric motor assists in the turning. The only drawback to this system is the lack of feel. The benefit is usually a 3% savings in fuel consumption. I'd rather have the hydraulic system thank you.   Another upgrade is that a variable intake system is used. The intake manifold has two intake valves that switches between high and low rpm. To increase torque at low rpm the valve closes on one side (for more tumble and swirl) and at higher rpm both valves opens up. The valve control is manual where the driver can use a setting (for torque) for city commuting and the other for fast road driving.   Amazingly, this old 86 can make 18km/l. And at highway cruising speeds 19.6km/l was achieved. This means that this old car is as economical or even more economical than a Honda Jazz. A Levin at the very best made 11-12km/l. The best thing was that no power was sacrificed for this figures to be achieved and the Eco-86 made 129.9ps (at the wheel) and 161Nm of torque from the ancient 1.6 4A-G engine. The stock 4A-G made about 125bhp at the flywheel, so it still is a good improvement. Tec Art's intends to get 20km/l by spending more time fine tuning the system.   Quite an amazing achievement, modernizing a classic into something quite eco-friendly. Quite, as nothing had been said about having catalytic converters or stuff like that.  



    Europe: Hyundai Motor Group overtakes Toyota in sales

    Hyundai Motor Group has sold more cars than Toyota in Europe during the first 10 months of 2010, overtaking the popular Japanese brand as the leading top Asia brand in the continent.   Hyundai and Kia sold a combined 521,369 vehicles during the first 10 months of 2010 according to date from the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association. Toyota with Lexus brand has a combined sales figure of 511,754, down 17 percent over the same period last year. Hyundai Motor Group has seen its market share in Europe rise to 4.5 percent for the period while Toyota experienced a reduction in market share from 5 percent to 4.4 percent Year on Year.   The Korean automaker has done well in the slumping European market, keeping demand going with popular models such as the Hyundai ix20, the i30, ix35 SUV and the Kia Cee'd hatchback. The European market is down 5 percent for the first 10 months of 2010 to 11.6 million unit sales. However, not all automakers experienced a reduction in sales during the period. For instance, Nissan



    Ferrari's F70 is on the way

    If you thought the original Enzo was a one off car, you'd be wrong. Because there's a new one on the way. The F70 has been confirmed to be put into production and it could be released as early as next year. The ultra-light carbon fibre supercar was first previewed as the 2007 Millechili concept which weighed only a ton!   The original Enzo was built as a tribute to Ferrari's founder, and it was meant to showcase how Ferrari's F1 technology could be used on the road. And boy does the current Enzo show how the limits of a road car can be pushed using Formula 1 gadgetry. I've always felt that the Enzo wasn't entirely a good looking car, just like how F1 cars these days look more like carbon-fibre tubes with wheels. It was built with no compromise and design was influenced mostly by the way the car faired in the wind tunnel. Ferrari had built the 'Ultimate' supercar in their already stellar stable. But with the new F70, things are about to get even better.   The new Enzo will use a 562bhp, mid-mounted V8 which is derived from the 458 Italia, with a chance that twin turbochargers will be thrown in to add more punch. More F1 inspired aerodynamic designs and weight shedding will be put into the F70 as well and surprisingly, Roberto Fedeli, Ferrari
