Car of the Week – 2014 Audi RS 5 RS 5

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The all-conquering Audi RS5 storms into 2014 with a few detail tweaks that enhance what is already the most extreme four-seat performance car the brand makes. The car packs some changes to the honeycomb grille’s color options and a handful of other refinements like redesigned LED optics out back and adaptive cruise inside.

The RS5 is so hardcore macho that it makes the R8 4.2  seem like a posh cruiser. The engine literally thunder-claps up its rev range in seconds with a bassy baritone from the front and a bellowing growl from the giant exhaust out back.

Jaguars New Crossbreed SUV

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Jaguar F-Pace’s official unveil is only weeks away now, but we’ve seen and heard lots about it already. It’s been spotted winter testing, and it’s even been used as a support car for the Tour De France, but it will finally debut in production form at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

It’s Jaguar’s first ever attempt at an SUV, and its been seen in concept form, spied testing and teased for years now. But the wait is nearly over as it’ll go on sale at the start of 2016, expected to start from around £30,000.

That price tag puts it right in the firing line of premium rivals such as the Porsche Macan, Audi Q5 and It also means the F-Pace will go right up against its Jaguar-Land Rover siblings, the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque. 

Jaguar describes the F-Pace as more of a “performance crossover” rather than a traditional SUV. The name purposely aligns it with the F-Type sports car and distances it from the more rugged products offered by sister company Land Rover. Despite the performance bias, we’re expecting a range of four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines to sit alongside a hot supercharged V8 variant, possibly carrying the F-Pace SVR badge.

The all-conquering Audi RS5 storms into 2014 with a few detail tweaks that enhance what is already the most extreme four-seat performance car the brand makes. The car packs some changes to the honeycomb grille’s color options and a handful of other refinements like redesigned LED optics out back and adaptive cruise inside.

The RS5 is so hardcore macho that it makes the R8 4.2  seem like a posh cruiser. The engine literally thunder-claps up its rev range in seconds with a bassy baritone from the front and a bellowing growl from the giant exhaust out back.

Audi’s two layers of performance upgrades mean that RS5 can be laser focused on delivering crushing acceleration and track performance at the expense of touring comfort. The increase in drama from the Audi S5  to the RS5 is akin to the C63 AMG  versus the C63 AMG Black Series  .

The Most Expensive Jaguar in the World — 1953 Jaguar C-Type

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
  • The auction was held yesterday by RM Sotheby’s in Monterey, California
  • Three people bid for the car before it was eventually sold for £8.4million
  • The stunning car managed to win fourth place at Le Mans back in 1953

The C-Type was successful in racing, most notably at the Le Mans 24 hours race, which it won twice.

In 1951 the car won at its first attempt. The factory entered three, whose driver pairings were Stirling Moss and Jack Fairman, Leslie Johnson and 3-times Mille Miglia winner Clemente Biondetti, and the eventual winners, Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead. The Walker/Whitehead car was the only factory entry to finish, the other two retiring with lack of oil pressure. A privately entered XK120, owned by Robert Lawrie, co-driven by Ivan Waller, also completed the race, finishing 11th.

In 1952 Jaguar, worried by a report about the speed of the Mercedes-Benz 300SLs that would run at Le Mans, modified the C-Type’s aerodynamics to increase the top speed. However, the consequent rearrangement of the cooling system made the car vulnerable to overheating.[2] All three retired from the race. The Peter Whitehead/Ian Stewart and Tony Rolt/Duncan Hamilton cars blew head gaskets, and the Stirling Moss/Peter Walker car, the only one not overheating having had a full-sized radiator hurriedly fitted, lost oil pressure after a mechanical breakage.[3] Later testing by Norman Dewis at MIRA after the race proved that it was not the body shape that caused the overheating but mainly the water pump pulley that was undersize, spun too fast, caused cavitation and thus the overheating. In addition the header tank was in front of the passenger-side bulkhead, far from the radiator, and the tubing used was 7/8 inch. When the tubing diameter was increased to 1 1/4 inch and the water pump pulley increased in diameter, the car ran without problem. What the body shape did do though was to create enormous tail lift, which caused the cars to squirrel their way down the Mulsanne (properly called the Hunaudières) straight at speeds over 120 mph (193 km/h). The chassis numbers of the cars were XKC 001, 002 and 011, the last existing today as a normal C-type, the others being dismantled at the factory.

In 1953 C-Type’s won again – placing 1, 2, and 4. [4] This time the body was in thinner, lighter aluminium and the original twin H8 sand cast SU carburettors were replaced by three DCO3 40mm Webers, which helped boost power to 220 bhp (164 kW). Philip Porter mentions additional changes:

Further weight was saved by using a rubber bag fuel tank … lighter electrical equipment and thinner gauge steel for some of the chassis tubes … [T]he most significant change to the cars was the [switch to] disc brakes.[5]

Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt won the race at 105.85 mph (170.35 km/h) – the first time Le Mans had been won at an average of over 100 miles per hour (161 km/h).

Disc brakes were novel in 1953, and Jaguar’s win, partly due to their superiority, set off a scramble to include discs in production cars.

1954, the C-Type’s final year at Le Mans, saw a fourth place by the Ecurie Francorchamps entry driven by Roger Laurent and Jacques Swaters.
