The yellow RS 4 is one of the best cars I’ve ever driven (there’s a video on Carfection’s YT channel somewhere). It’s SO COOL.
In theory a sound idea, but... insurance. And I like my skin actually ON my bones.
I will shit myself inside out laughing if Ginetta trots out a Corvette. Thing is... I can see it happening.
You can melt them if they get too close, then make your escape.
I converted UK to US (always do for Jalopnik pieces!). Write for your audience and all that. Though I did drop the ball on the weight. Damn stubby fingers.
The MPGs figires are UK - US conversions. The figures have been adjusted for a US audience! I even spelt ‘litre’ wrong and everything. Heh.
A while back I did Malaga to Crickhowell in 32 hours. It was about 1500 miles. I wouldn’t recommend sleeping in the car in a French truck stop, but the drive was fun enough. Car was a Boxster GTS and the fabric roof let all the heat out so I woke up shivering a few times...
Oooooooooh yes. The more you drive, the more chance you have of accidents happening.
They cost more than a fully loaded M4, but not quite that much.
I’d love to agree with you, but I’m 99% sure it isn’t. Once the clam is cracked you have to replace the whole thing, and that shape of S2 Elise clam isn’t made any more. The cost of having a fresh one made (I think there’s a company in Belgium that does them and that’s about it), painted, shipped to the US, etc, is…
None of mine. I was there on scribbling duty!
Pirelli Sotto Zeros will do you in the snow. Drove a 570S through the snow in them earlier this year... Tape will sort the seats. Maybe.
I got him to sign my book...
Fastest Car was painfully awful. Can’t say I’m holding out much hope for these new ones either...
This line: “You may have to wait 25 years to import one to the U.S., but it’ll be worth the wait.” Will help you with that!
Hello! I am indeed here! I’m freelance now and the good folk at Jalopnik have taken me in from the cold and offered a warm place to tell stories.
To get a bit nerdy - with cylinder shut off at highway speeds and decent aero it’s not outside the realms of possibility if you’re in controlled conditions. However, I’d say the figure is ambitious as it was measured using NEDC testing (the imminently ‘old way’ of measuring MPG, etc) which is... flawed. WLTP testing…
That was UK converted to US. That’s what Ford reckons it’ll get in freedom gallons.
i30N is Focus size, not Fiesta. Else I would have. It’s also one of the most uncomfortable cars ever built.
That’s kinda the point of me being here...
