My Awkward Interview With T-Pain

| Video | 04.12.2017

While judging this year's Sony Gran Turismo Awards in Las Vegas, I received an invite to interview a rapper called T-Pain. Naturally, I accepted to see if he could help me with a rap hit of my own…Cue the awkward interview!

Man’s Appreciation Of Vintage Cars

| Auto News | 04.12.2017

Like it or not, you probably have a drive (no pun intended) to try out vintage cars. In fact, for many men, there is a mysterious and intriguing force that compels them into not only appreciating vintage vehicles, but also to go out of their way to own them. Whether we’re talking about the earliest […]

2019 Infiniti QX50 – INTERIOR

| Video | 04.12.2017

Smart power and greater control from advanced VC-Turbo internal combustion engine;
Infiniti's VC-Turbo engine is the world's first production-ready variable compression ratio engine – and it makes its production debut on the new 2019 Infiniti QX50. This unique variable compression technology represents a breakthrough in combustion engine design – the all-new QX50's 2.0-liter VC-Turbo continually transforms, adjusting its compression ratio to optimize power and fuel efficiency. It combines the power of a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with the torque and efficiency of an advanced four-cylinder diesel engine.

The VC-Turbo changes its compression ratio seamlessly with an advanced multi-link system, continuously raising or lowering the pistons' reach to transform compression ratio – offering both power and efficiency, on demand.
A high compression ratio gives greater efficiency, but in certain applications poses the risk of premature combustion (knocking). A low compression ratio allows for greater power and torque, and avoids knocking. In operation, the 2019 QX50's VC-Turbo engine offers any compression ratio between 8:1 (for high performance) and 14:1 (for high efficiency). Deploying smart power for greater control, the empowering engine exemplifies Infiniti's driver-centric approach.

The blend of performance and efficiency represents a compelling alternative to diesel, challenging the notion that only hybrid and diesel powertrains are capable of delivering high torque and efficiency. The engine delivers 268 hp @ 5,600 rpm and 280 lb ft @ 4,400 rpm. The VC-Turbo's specific power output is higher than many competing turbocharged gasoline engines, and comes close to the performance of some V6 gasoline engines. The unit's single-scroll turbo ensures immediate accelerator responses, on demand.
Equipped with the VC-Turbo engine, the 2019 Infiniti QX50 is competitively efficient, expected to deliver gasoline fuel economy of 27 mpg (U.S. combined, front-wheel drive; 26 mpg all-wheel drive). In front-wheel drive specification, this offers a 35-percent improvement in fuel efficiency over the V6 gasoline engine in the previous QX50, while the new all-wheel drive model's 26 mpg represents a 30-percent improvement.
Other highlights include compact packaging and weight-saving technologies. The engine block and cylinder head are cast in lightweight aluminum alloy, while the transformative multi-link components are manufactured in high-carbon steel alloy. Compared to Infiniti's 3.5-liter VQ V6 engine, the 2.0-liter VC-Turbo weighs 18kg less and requires less space in the engine bay.
The engine employs the world's first multi-link system and an electric motor with a unique Harmonic Drive reduction gear to transform its compression ratio. The electric motor is connected to the Harmonic Drive with a control arm; as the Harmonic Drive rotates, the control shaft at the base of the engine rotates, moving the multi-link system within the engine. As the angle of the multi-link arms changes, it adjusts the top-dead-center position of the pistons – and the compression ratio with them. An eccentric control shaft changes the compression ratio of all the cylinders at the same time. As a result, the engine capacity varies between 1,997 cc (for a low 8:1 ratio) and 1,970 cc (high 14:1 ratio).

New ProPILOT Assist technologies support single-lane driving
The suite of driver assist technologies in the all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 is called ProPILOT Assist, which, as a package, helps the driver control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving. Equipped for the first time in an Infiniti model, ProPILOT Assist effectively helps to reduce the stress of stop-and-go driving and highway cruises. ProPILOT Assist takes over single-lane driving operation at the push of a button, without the driver's input on acceleration, braking, or steering. The driver can choose to let the car operate on their behalf in stop-start traffic.
The technologies that make up the full suite of QX50's ProPILOT Assist system include Direct Adaptive Steering and Intelligent Cruise Control. These are supported by additional technologies, including: Distance Control Assist; Back-up Collision Intervention; Predictive Forward Collision Warning; Blind Spot Warning and Intervention; Lane Departure Warning and Prevention; and Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection. Other notable safety features available to 2019 Infiniti QX50 buyers include pre-crash seat belt technology, adaptive front lighting with high beam assist, a tire inflation indicator, and lighter steering for certain parking situations….

Cute Naked Black Sportster Ironhead

| Moto News | 04.12.2017

The Sportster (code beginning with XL) is continuously produced since 1957 by Harley-Davidson. But the Ironhead engine is the original Sportster engine only produced from 1957 until 1985 when it was replaced by the Evolution engine in 1986. And for many custom builders and core bikers the iron cylinder heads (instead of aluminum) engine is […] cyrilhuzeblog.com
