Taking part in a car race is fun so long as you are moving and there is a chance of winning. While the adrenaline rush and the danger involved as you push the car and yourself to the finish line is a feeling unlike any other, the action could come to a stop in an instance.
Accidents do happen after all, often leaving racers completely helpless to go any further. That’s exactly what happened to this guy during a race in GTA V, but instead of the usual crash, he is stopped in his tracks by something more unexpected and downright hilarious.
To see exactly what happened, make sure to watch the video from beginning to end.
Next Lexus IS Might Use The Same BMW Engine As Supra
Engineers are implanting a BMW heart into the Japanese sports sedan.
A new report coming out of Japan states that the next-generation Lexus IS will get the same BMW-sourced inline six-cylinder engine as new Toyota Supra.
According , the 3.0L V6, which produces 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque in the Supra, will be part of an engine lineup that also includes a 2.0L turbo, a 2.4L turbo, and/or a 2.5L hybrid powertrain depending on region.
It can also be found in the latest Z4 as well as the IS’s natural rival, the BMW M340i.
The next-generation IS is unlikely to change in size but will weigh less, topping the scale at approximately 3,395 lbs compared to the current IS’ 3,737 lbs.
Finally, the Japanese car magazine claims the IS F will make a return packing a variation of the in-house twin-turbo V6 found under the hood of the popular LS 500.
Lexus has not confirmed when the next-generation IS will debut, but there have been rumors that it could arrive in 2020.
Is Alfa Romeo Giving Birth To A Baby SUV?
Stelvio might be getting a little brother.
Alfa Romeo will reportedly release a brand-new crossover that slots below the Stelvio compact crossover.
Sources famaliar with the vehicle revealed to Greece’s that the model will ride on a model-specific version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the aforementioned Stelvio and the Giulia, meaning it will be rear-wheel drive or, optionally, all-wheel drive.
Power will likely come from a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine and, as unlikely as it might be for the small crossover segment, possibly a V6.
A sub-Stelvio crossover was a centerpiece of the five-year product plan Alfa Romeo presented in June 2018, so this is more than just a rumor. In fact, previous reports claim it will share platforms with either the Jeep Renegade or Compass rather than with the Stelvio.
If designed and built right, the little Italian high-rider could become the company’s best-seller, and releasing it as quickly as possible would help the company reach its goal of selling 400,000 cars annually by 2022.
Toyota Kills The Prius C, Replaces It With Corolla Hybrid
Buyers are encouraged to go for the new Corolla Hybrid instead.
Now that there is a hybrid version of the popular Corolla, Toyota figures it has one too many small hybrid vehicles in its lineup. It has quietly killed off the Prius C hybrid to give more breathing room for both the regular Prius and Corolla hybrid.
The Prius C debuted in 2011 as a smaller alternative to the Prius Liftback, but the Corolla Hybrid is bigger and more efficient, matching the standard Prius’s 52-mpg combined rating in the United States compared to the Prius C’s 46-mpg combined rating.
“You’re probably not going to see Prius C for long,” Toyota marketing vice president Ed Laukes told . “The Prius C has served its purpose well.”
The fuel-sipping Corolla is intended to maximize sales of Toyota’s hybrid powertrain platform by appealing to a broader group of customers who may be put off by the Prius’ polarizing looks but still want extremely good fuel efficiency.
