2012 Renault Twizy review

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

The Renault Twizy is an electric quadricycle ? halfway between a car and a motorcycle. It has four wheels, but is only 2338mm long and, more importantly, just 1396mm wide.

The two occupants ? a driver and a passenger ? sit in line, instead of adjacent to each other. The 17bhp/38lb ft electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack that gives a range of 62 miles and requires…

Roding Roadster is fit for a role in The Avengers

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , ,

The Roding Roadster 23 is here, and having been faithful to its renderings, it looks like it’s come good. We knew it would have proper fenders from the latest drawings, but the red-and-black livery makes the little roofless coupe pop.

Roding still hasn’t decided to spill all of its secrets, not that it looks to have many, but we know there’ll be just 23 examples offered. Behind those huggy seats is a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine from BMW producing 320 horsepower and 332 pound-feet, charged with propelling a car that weighs just 950 kilograms (2,090 pounds). An installable hood goes in the trunk section up front.

In the information from the company’s site below, however, Roding indicates that “the first cars to be produced” are a limited edition of 23, which makes it sound like they’ll be around for more than a couple dozen cars.

Reckless Racing 2 video game turned into radio-controlled reality

Reckless Racing 2 in real life

If you’ve never played Reckless Racing 2, odds are you’ve taken the helm of similar games in the past. Players are given control of a vehicle viewed from above as it bashes its way around a dirt track with other cars.

Sony Ericsson recently partnered up with noted car hacker James Brighton to create a real-life version of Reckless Driving 2 using a pair of droptop MG models and Sony’s new Xperia Studio smartphone. Sony and Brighton then invited Martin Noriander, the developer behind Reckless Racing 2, and journalist Hunter Skipworth to compete head-to-head with the real-life cars.

Who came out on top? We won’t spoil it for you, but we will say there was a good bit of carnage as the duo tried to manipulate their chariots around the course. See below to check out the quick video for yourself.
