All interior switches have seals for moisture. We haven’t had any fail from a spill.
But now you can get grabby with your passenger without the lever in your way.
I beg to differ.
Man, I never get tired of well-executed racing shots where the vehicles are panned—get the blurred background so the cars pop.
Great shots Kurt! And thanks for lots of Acuras!
I predict that Elizabeth Werth will consume more questionable cocktails.
I think that's just straight-up bragging.
Damn it’s amazing how angry Corvette fans get if you are even slightly critical of this car. I got the most comments I ever got by making a “Corvette-owner-you-kids-get-off-my-lawn” joke. Why so salty, Vette fans? Saying that a vehicle line being aged out in sales volume akin to Harley Davidsons might want to think…
I made a mistake editing this...The fuel injectors doubled in quantity, not size! The ZR1 has both direct injection and secondary port injectors, the latter of which add extra fuel under heavy load, which is unique to this car. (Fixed.)
Please Jalopnik - have this guy write more of your car reviews. I got halfway through it and had to go back up to check the name of the author because the review was so well written. Please keep up the good work (and maybe review the Veloster N next...)
You do realize GM all but banned Jalopnik because Patrick crashed (I believe it was) a test mule Camaro on a track a few years back, right? Has nothing to do with Kurt, he wasn’t even at Jalopnik yet.
No, VW hadn’t bought porsche yet when the Up was introduced. In fact, Porsche was poised to buy VW at that time.
Even Genesis uses unique switchgear and interior components as does the Kia Stinger compared to the rest of Hyundai and Kia cars. VW uses stuff that could pass muster in an entry leve luxury car in the Golf. GM uses crap parts in everything from their Cruze to the Cadillac ATS-V to the ZR1 supercar killer. In a Cruze…
That would be a problem for small manufacturers like McLaren. GM sells lots of luxo Cadillacs. They can amortize the cost of the fancy switch gear over a lot more cars than say, Porsche. So as Kurt Bradley said- quit with the excuses.
Let’s not start calling Camrys by their body codes, please. No one knows them, and more importantly, no one gives a shit to learn them. Camrys deserve no enthusiasm.
So is there a way to build it with the engine in the back? Asking for GM.
Natural light is the best light, thanks!
Seriously, nice work, all. All excellent photos.
