Ferrari F40, Ferrari's First Near Racer Is Still Revered By The Experts

Image
Despite starting life in the 1980s, the Ferrari F40 is still one of the quickest cars in the world. It was the first production car to top 200 mph, and accelerated to 60 mph in 3.5-3.8 seconds, a time which is extremely difficult to beat. The F40 is a raw supercar; no frills, no concessions to creature comforts, but built to go fast. More or less a sports racing car for the road, for the true enthusiast. Anything that got in the way the performance was left off. Nor was it easy to drive. As one owner told us: "You have to concentrate every minute when you're driving the F40. Everything happens so fast." 2.9 liter V-8 engine turbocharged The car was based on Ferrari's 2.9 liter V-8, but highly turbocharged by a pair of IHT turbochargers to give 478 bhp, enough to give the light car its superb performance. In those days that was as much power as the average Grand Prix car churned out. The compact engine was mounted in a tubular chassis, which was clothed in a carbon fib

The Effects of Ethanol on Fuel Mileage

Image
Most gasoline powered cars run on straight gasoline although these vehicles can also safely run on an ethanol blend consisting of 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline. Known as E10 fuel or gasohol, many service station pumps across the nation offer this blend. A placard should be posted on the pump alerting you that E10 fuel is in use. Fuel Economy Ethanol, however, is less fuel efficient than straight gasoline. Cars fueled with E10 will typically see a drop in fuel efficiency by 3 or 4 percent. What that means is if your car is averaging 30 mpg, you will most likely average about 29 mpg with E10 fuel. Certainly, that doesn’t make for much of a difference for one fill up, but over the course of a year you’ll pay for it. Some vehicles are “flex fuel” rated and can run on either straight gasoline or consume E85 fuel which is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. These vehicles have modified fuel lines and a fuel tank in addition to certain computer diagnostic changes that ena

Tips on Buying a Used Mercedes Benz

Lots of people will tell you that buying a used car is much like a lottery. Not so, if only you follow the four easy steps outlined below. Trust No-One. This is not to say that your used Mercedes Benz reseller is necessarily lying to you, but that you should keep a critical and inquiring eye out on all the details of the car you’re considering to buy. Ideally, the seller should offer to run a pre-purchase inspection themselves, reveal all findings of the inspection by showing you the written report and offer to cover the fixing expenses of any flaws to the vehicle not disclosed in the advertisement. Ask for the inspection. Since we live in a world far less than ideal, and since a seller’s main purpose is to get rid of their used car as quickly and ‘painlessly’ as possible, you will probably not come across many sellers that offer to run the above-mentioned inspection. Should you find yourself in this situation, you definitely need to take care of the inspection yourself.  Additionally,
