Audi B5 S4 Burns Bugatti Chiron to Everyone’s Surprise

Audi B5 S4 Burns Bugatti Chiron to Everyone’s Surprise

Quite the Surprise at the Drag Strip

When an Audi B5 S4 and a Bugatti Chiron pulled up at the drag racing strip, many people may have suspected a Chiron victory. But, to everyone’s surprise, the Audi B5 S4 ends up outperforming the Bugatti. Beginning with a rolling start, both cars stroll forward. From there, the gas pedals mash. Both cars accelerate aggressively down the track. Somehow, that B5 S4 is keeping up, and passing! To no surprise, the B5 S4 contains enough mods to add over 1,000 horsepower to the base power level. Defeating the 8th fastest production vehicle is no easy task, so props to the S4 owner! This occurred at the SCC500 Rolling 50 1000 event in Germany.

Audi B5 S4 Specifications

Unfortunately, the Audi B5 S4’s performance mods are not readily available to discuss. But, there is an estimation that this car pushes 1,300 horsepower! Phew! That’s fast! Obviously, the car sports BBS wheels, a lowering kit, and a ton of modifications under the hood. This B5 S4 goes by the name “ARLOWS”. Since all modifications aren’t known, let’s review the basics of the base model.

The Audi B5 S4 was an amazing car in the past, and still is today. Starting with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, this car produces 261 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Being such a small, lightweight car has its perks. The newer models are blatantly larger, to the point the modern A4 is the size of the A6 of this generation, if not bigger. From 0 to 60 mph, the stock B5 S4 takes only 5.6 seconds. With a top speed of 155.3 mph, this car is a beast from the past. This car has always been a mod dream car due to the build being accessible for massive growth in ability.

Bugatti Chiron Specifications

The Bugatti Chiron is the 8th fastest production vehicle in the world. So, being beat by an Audi B5 S4 may have been shocking for the owner. But, in reality, many cars can reach this level of power with modifications. Regardless, cars like the Chiron are hypercars meant to be respected at an entirely higher level. The black with red secondary color Chiron in the video has a 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.

This motor runs in conjunction with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Producing a whopping 1,479 horsepower, this car is a beast. But, the S5 is a much lighter car, especially with mods and reductions. From 0 to 60 mph, the Chiron takes only 2.5 seconds. No wonder this car is a dream for many!

And… the B5 S4 Wins!

The “ARLOWS” Audi B5 S4 is such a beast that defeating the Chiron wasn’t too difficult of a task. The race may have been close, but as Dom says:

“Ask any racer. Any real racer. It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning.” – Dom Toretto in The Fast and the Furious (Vin Diesel)

Those who have seen this movie will absolutely understand where this statement comes from. If not, get out there and see the damn movie! Regardless, The Fast and the Furious is a great racing film from the past. But, back to the race. In conclusion, the Audi B5 S4 is an amazing tuner car which is capable of defeating the crème of the crop.

Light strips run along the bottom of the car and connect the low profile headlights. To take the idea of “sleek” even further, the 255/25 R 24 front tires are partially covered. Furthermore, the back 305/25 R 26 tires finish out the “prowler” feel of the car.

Is This EQ Silver Arrow Really Electric?

There’s no doubt about it, electric vehicles have come a long way. The Arrow is fully electric, running on an 80 kWh battery. Its motor delivers 750 hp and has a range of up to 248 miles.

If the outside of this car doesn’t have saliva dripping off your chin, then consider the interior.

Forget the very practical 3D projection of your rear surroundings. Let’s talk about the ability to superimpose a virtual race track on the road ahead of you. Add ghost cars that you can race and see how meshing the virtual with the real creates a whole new reality.

PLUS… you can even configure sound settings so that your “electric” vehicle shirks stealth mode and sounds like a Formula 1 racer, or a V8-powered gas engine. How cool is that?

Audi Considers Reviving Horch to Battle Bentley & Rolls

Audi Considers Reviving Horch to Battle Bentley & Rolls

Horch Might Be Making a Comeback!

Audi has said that they plan to revive the Horch name for their A8 sedan. The most powerful version of the A8 will rival both Bentley and Rolls in terms of luxury and performance.

The Audi A8 W12 Powertrain

Audi A8 - Front Corner - M 93 - Wikipedia - EuroDrift
Audi A8 – Front Corner – M 93 – Wikipedia – EuroDrift

Automotive News reports that the new Audi A8 will come with options for either the V8 or the W12 that is currently only used by Bentley. Specs for the A8 Horch W12 include a 585 bhp, 6.0-litre engine which is more powerful than Audi’s previous generation A8 W12.

In the Bentley Continental, the W12 puts out about 582 horsepower and uses a 6.0-liter engine. The Rolls-Royce Phantom boasts 563 bhp. The modifications planned for the new Horch A8 will now make it competitive with the other W12 cars.

The History of the W12 Engine

The W12 engine was originally used in aircraft engine designs during the 1920’s and Formula One racing cars in the 1980’s. The modern version of the W12 is part of the Volkswagen Group W12 engines and used on several concept and production vehicles.

  • Audi 
    • Avus Quattro (concept version only)
    • A8L W12
  • Bentley
  • Spyker
    • C12 La Turbie
    • C12 Zagato
    • D12 Peking-to-Paris (prototype version only)
  • Volkswagen
    • GTI W12-650 (prototype only)
    • Phaeton W12
    • Touareg W12
    • W12 (concept car)

The Revival of the Horch Name

A journey through the Audi history – The Horch Museum Zwickau – Audi Germany – YouTube

The revival of the Horch name pays tribute to one of Audi’s original founders, just as Mercedes’ revival of Maybach did.

Right now, Audi has no plans for a stand-alone model under the Horch name. Audi has said that they don’t plan to use the moniker on any other vehicle but the Audi A8. It seems fitting that their top-of-the-line vehicle would carry the name of their founder.

Despite the fact that the plans for the Horch A8 W12 are complete, no production date has yet been set.

Porsche Taycan EV Specs Include 600+ Horsepower

Porsche Taycan EV Specs Include 600+ Horsepower

The Taycan Numbers Are In!

Finally, Porsche has released specs for the all-new Taycan EV vehicle, previously the Mission E. The Porsche Taycan EV specs are quite impressive. But, first the pronunciation of the name needs to be made clear. Porsche pronounces “Taycan” as “TIE-con”. Yes, it sounds like you are going to a comic con knock-off for ties. Regardless, this car is a beastly EV. To make up for the name, simply refer to the stats below!

Specification Estimates by Porsche

Porsche Mission E - Side with Open Doors - IAA 2015 - Wikimedia - EuroDrift

Porsche Mission E – Side with Open Doors – IAA 2015 – Wikimedia – EuroDrift

The Porsche Taycan EV specs are not exact but are simply expected ballpark numbers. The Porsche Taycan EV sports two permanently excited synchronous motors. These electric motors produce over 600 horsepower. This allows the Taycan to hit 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds with AWD. Furthermore, 124 mph will take around 12 seconds… phew! Lastly, the Taycan will contain a 800 volt battery. This battery will allow the Taycan to complete trips of over 300 miles per charge. Furthermore, a specific charger type will charge for 250 miles in as little as 15 minutes.

A Partnership for an EV Future

With 300 miles per full charge, the Taycan will be capable of completing long distance road trips. But, many people worry about charging stations. Availability was a debate of the past, but not for long. BMW, Daimler, Ford, Porsche, & VW intend to build 400 fast-charging locations by 2020. The goal of this is to ensure charging stations are every 100 miles or so, at least in Europe. Regardless, this will heavily resolve many worries about charging EVs. With this leap in tech, EVs will be able to become a much worthier competitor. In conclusion, the Porsche Taycan EV specs are impressive and it is expected to have production info later in 2018.

BMW M Models to Release as Electric Vehicles (EVs)

BMW M Models to Release as Electric Vehicles (EVs)

An Electric Future for BMW M Models

“For sure, all M vehicles will be electrified by the end of the next decade.” – Frank van Meel (BMW’s M Chief)

In recent years, auto manufacturers are moving towards electrifying their lineups. Not surprisingly, BMW must hop on the bandwagon at some point. BMW M models will release as electric vehicles at some point in the next decade. The quote above is a statement from Frank van Meel at a press conference to CarAdvice journalists. So, expecting an electrified M2 or M5 may not be a crazy thought. Either way, electric vehicles (EVs) are the way of the future. So, hopping on board is a requirement for most manufacturers at some point.

A Step-by-Step Process for BMW

2018 BMW M2 - Front - PAS 2018 - EuroDrift

2018 BMW M2 – Front – PAS 2018 – EuroDrift

Below, a quote by Frank van Meel can be seen discussing a step-by-step process. For BMW, the BMW M model lineup will change with the right technology. Currently, BMW is working on its own hybrid technology. Astonishingly, BMW is designing its own electric motor, gearbox, and platform, from scratch. This is occurring while BMW is working on its fifth-gen architecture that’ll include powertrain options. But, BMW M is not in a rush to electrify the lineup. The BMW M division will await its own “better” technology.

“That’s going to happen step-by-step. The important question is the timing question – what’s the right time for that? If you’re too late then you’re too late, but if you’re too early then you don’t have the ‘straight to the point’ technology.” – Frank van Meel (BMW’s M Chief)

Dissatisfaction with Electrical Components

2018 BMW M4 - Front - PAS 2018 - EuroDrift

2018 BMW M4 – Front – PAS 2018 – EuroDrift

One of the main reasons that the BMW M model lineup is not electrified is the components themselves. Below, Meel can be seen showing disappointment with electrical components. From his perspective, they are quite heavy which will effect weight and power-to-weight ratios. This will obviously lower the overall performance of the vehicle… but maybe not. BMW should look to Tesla for an understanding of EV technology. Why? Because Tesla has a sedan that can reach 60 mph in under 3 seconds. That is faster than most sports cars, including Ferrari and Lamborghini. So, electrical component weight is a poor reason for not advancing the fleet.

“Look at today’s electrification components, they are quite heavy and, for us as a motorsports company, overall vehicle weight and power-to-weight ratio is key.” – Frank van Meel (BMW’s M Chief)

The EV Future of BMW

Why BMW is Going All in With Electric Cars – Bloomberg – YouTube

In the future, within a decade, BMW M models plan to release with electrification. Regardless, by 2025, BMW plans to offer 40% electric powertrain models to the market. Electric vehicles are a growing trend and the way for the future. The beautiful sound of engines will be missed, but just as everything else, things change. It is time for the world to accept the future of the automobile. Performance and respect to the environment are both obtained with EVs. In conclusion, BMW is joining the ever-growing EV market with its models, one by one.

BMW iNext EV: Arriving in 2021

BMW Sets High Goal for EV Models

In recent years, BMW has shown high interest in achieving success within the electric vehicle (EV) market. In 2016, BMW announced the plans for the iNext EV vehicle. The BMW iNext EV will be a “new innovation driver, with autonomous driving, digital connectivity, intelligent lightweight design, a totally new interior and ultimately bringing the next generation of electro-mobility to the road” (Quote by BMW CEO Harald Krüger). The BMW iNext EV will probably take after the BMW i Vision Dynamics Concept. Furthermore, the list of features within the iNext EV are sure not to disappoint. At the BMW Annual General Meeting, the CEO presented the initial design for this new tech flagship.

435 Mile Range & SAE Level 3 Autonomous Driving

BMW i Vision Dynamics Concept - Side - Manufacturer Picture - EuroDrift

The BMW iNext EV boasts a ton of amazing features. Firstly, the iNext EV will offer a mileage range up to 435 miles. And yes, this is on one charge, not two or three. Secondly, there will be SAE level 3 autonomous driving tech with level 4 arriving within a year or so. This means that eyes on the road and hands on the wheel do not apply. Scary? Maybe. Not really. These features in themselves are a great feat for the BMW engineering team.

Expect 25 Electric BMW Models by 2025

BMW Vision Next 100 – interior Exterior and Drive – CAR TV – YouTube

By 2025, BMW plans to offer 25 electric vehicles, with 12 being fully electric. This means that BMW will offer mostly hybrids but with almost half being fully electric. This is quite an impressive goal and there will no doubt be competition in this field for the years to come. Recently shown in Beijing, the BMW all-electric X3 may arrive as early as 2020. Later in 2018, BMW will show the iNext EV as a “Vision Vehicle” concept to the world. Production for the iNext EV should begin in Dingolfing, Germany in 2021. In conclusion, BMW is aiming to achieve a full offering of electric vehicles in less than 10 years.

Note: The BMW iNext EV and the BMW i Vision are not the same vehicle. The BMW i Vision is shown above for an understanding of the futuristic designs of BMW.

VW Emissions Scandal & Why They Deserve a Second Chance

For the 642,000 people working for Volkswagen, the actions of a few have altered their lives irrevocably.

You are probably aware that from 2006 to 2015, VW based their US sales strategy on selling “clean diesel” vehicles such as the Passat and the Jetta. They claimed that these vehicles rivaled electric-hybrids like the Toyota Prius in both performance and emissions.

Sales records show that as many as 580,000 found their way into the garages of unwary consumers. All of these customers thought they were buying high-performance, EPA-friendly autos.

But they weren’t.

Instead, they were actually purchasing vehicles which spewed 4x the legal limit of noxious fumes allowed by the US Nox Regulations.

Who’s to Blame for VW Emissions Scandal?

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan - Front - PAS 2018 - EuroDrift

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan – Front – PAS 2018 – EuroDrift

So, how did this fraud continue for close to a decade? Who knew and who didn’t?

Actually, the emissions scandal was the work of only a handful of people.

About 40 people, worked together to cover up the results of the failed emissions testing. The fraud went all the way to the top and there is little doubt that the CEO, Winkerton, knew of the issue in 2016. Many feel that he knew about it before then and may have had a hand in its execution.

Once the story broke, vehicle owners began filing civil lawsuits and criminal investigations began. Several executives found themselves facing jail sentences and VW’s CEO was forced to resign. In addition, the company was hit with billions of dollars in fines and settlements.

2nd Chances for VW Workers

Volkswagen’s diesel scandal, explained – The Verge – YouTube

Unfortunately, the lasting implications for the 642,000 auto workers who had nothing to do with the VW Emissions Scandal are real. VW sales have still not returned to same levels they were before the diesel scandal. Some US auto dealers reported that they had days during the past two years when they didn’t see a single customer in their showrooms.

Yet, finally, this past quarter, VW sales have started to climb.

According to Autodata, it looks as if VW has gained 12% over previous year’s sales. This could mean that the public is willing to forgive and forget now that those who engineered the VW Emissions Scandal have had to pay the piper.
