BMW M5 Forza Cup

BMW F10 M5


In commemoration of Forza Motorsport 4's Europe release, Forza 4 teams up with BMW for the special BMW M5 FORZA CUP. Applicable for Forza 4 players in Germany, this special Community Monthly challenge pits German Forza 4 players to race against the clock at the Nurburgring GP Circuit using the all new BMW F10 M5. The player with the fastest lap time will be the lucky winner of the all new BMW F10 M5 to drive it on real life.

iPhone 4S

Apple iPhone 4S

The pride of Apple, the iPhone 4 just underwent its first mid-life update as the new iPhone 4S. It's better but does it matter? Let's see...

Picking up where the previous iPhone 4 left off, this new 4S has some of its good features that some people would adore this updated version. First off, there's Siri. So who is Siri? Think of Siri as your personal assistant on the go. You can use Siri when you want to ask something such as knowing what time it is, set a reminder on your calendar, ask for directions, almost anything. Siri knows almost everything as if you're being helped by someone. It would be generous to ask Siri for help but it would be best to know how to use the iPhone 4S by yourself. If you're stuck, Siri is there to help.

The iPhone 4S is the first to equipped with the all new iOS5 operating system and this new system has loads of new features such as Notification Center, iMessage, Twitter integration, Reminders, Newstand, and now you can take full advantage of the all new iCloud feature. The new iCloud feature allows you to store songs, movies, photos, and more, providing all-access on all devices.

What's more, this one has a dual-core A5 chip that provides two times the power, seven times the graphics, making the most out of its powerful chip that provides the best battery life, faster response, and impressive graphics that makes playing games more vivid.

This phone has advanced optics with custom lens, larger aptitude, and a sensor to provide more lively yet powerful photo shooting and you can record videos in amazing 1080p HD so when you upload them on Youtube, you might shock the world with fame with perfect sound, perfect picture, perfect quality. Well, almost perfect...

My Comment:
The iPhone 4S may be the minor update to the iPhone 4 but I think this new phone looks cool if you're a first-timer who has no knowledge to iPhone models yet. Some seasoned iPhone users may have to think twice about buying the new iPhone 4S or wait for something special. It maybe somewhat a lacking force but this iPhone 4S has a 60% chance to succeed against the Androids. The odds are somewhat made me sad...

OH MY GOD! Tomtom stops selling Top Gear Limited Edition Navi!

Tomtom Go Live Top Gear


Well, this looks embarrassing. The Top Gear-Tomtom collaboration resulted BBC violated its contract. It's too late now. About 54,000 Tomtom Go Live Top Gear limited edition models were made and shipped through stores days before BBC revealed their biggest mistake.

What's the biggest mistake? They violated something from the contract. It's Section 15, Article 4, Paragraph 7. It says that “Those working on consumer programs must take particular care not to endorse any product or service which could be covered in the programs on which they work and they should have no commercial or other links which could appear to influence their BBC work”.

As of now, Tomtom ceases production of the Tomtom Go Live Top Gear limited edition navigation systems and it no longer allow Tomtom users to download the "Jeremy Clarkson Voice Pack". The proceeds from these sales will go to BBC's Children in Need and a charitable donation to Tomtom.

The World-Proven, now Forza-Proven, Spark

Chevrolet Spark in Switzerland


The Chevrolet Spark... If my memory serves me correctly, this compact Chevy built from Changwon, South Korea, is proven to be more popular worldwide not only by its sleek European design but also its fuel efficiency, performance, safety, and pricing that made this city car a smart buy. That car made it popular thanks to its appearance on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon as Autobots Skids and Mudflap.

Chevrolet Spark in Germany

The Chevrolet Spark is probably the best Forza 4 starter car I have ever chosen because once I got inside the Spark, you can't resist its affinity. Once you get used to this compact, you have a tendency to take full advantage of this starter car. Cars like the Vauxhall Agila, Peugeot 107, Citroen C1, or the Nissan March/Micra K13 are not probably my type because of its round shapes. Only the Chevrolet Spark impressed me when the first time I played this game.

Chevrolet Spark in France

The Spark is more than just racing in the hands of a world-class owner. This can can be modified through various uses on other races, and you can decorate the Chevy Spark as you like. It would be best to replicate Skids or Mudflap because this is ""Just For Fun". In addition, why not make some kind of Korean license plate using the "Create Vinyl Group" and when you're done, slap it on the Chevy Spark's back and they will say that this car's fresh from Korea. Of course, the Chevrolet Spark is made by Koreans for the world.

Chevrolet Spark in Italy

I'm sure that there is such thing as a Chevy Spark Owners Club somewhere in Forza 4 but in the meantime, let's enjoy the best of the world-proven Chevrolet Spark on Forza Motorsport 4, especially when you put it on the Top Gear Test Track for recreational purposes...


Kia's ALL NEW PRIDE "all set" for B-Spec Racing

2011 Kia Pride Race Car


For a car like Kia's ALL NEW PRIDE (recently launched last month), it seems that this compact wants to follow the footsteps of the Forte Koup in the world of motorsports and indeed this B-Spec Race Car uses the Kia Pride Hatchback/Rio 5 as a foundation for this B-Spec Racer that will make a premiere at this year's SEMA Show.

Press Release:

Kia Motors America to Debut B-Spec Rio 5-door Race Car at 2011 SEMA Show

Fresh off its first ever GRAND-AM road racing championships, Kia Motors America will announce the first expansion to the brand's U.S. motorsports program at the upcoming SEMA Show by unveiling a "B-Spec" showroom stock race car based on the all-new 2012 Rio 5-door that will begin arriving in dealerships later this month. KMA's B-Spec entry was prepared by the company's racing partner, Kinetic Motorsports, who will provide racers with the necessary components (competition roll cage, safety equipment, suspension components, etc.) to build and compete with their own car.

"Outstanding value has always been a foundation of the Kia brand, and with the rapid development of the Kia Racing program and the launch of the 2012 Rio 5-door we have a unique opportunity to introduce Kia to a new and passionate racing community by providing an affordable and great-looking race car that delivers best-in-class horsepower in the rapidly expanding B-segment," said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing and communications, KMA.

The Rio 5-door B-Spec car was designed to easily be raced across multiple sanctioning bodies, including GRAND-AM, World Challenge, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and others.

Kia will provide more details about the Rio 5-door B-Spec program, and unveil five additional vehicles developed with high-profile partners, during its SEMA Show press conference on Tuesday, November 1 at 9:30 a.m.


Verdict: It seems for a compact like the Kia Pride/Rio UB, it does have a racing potential...

Forza Motorsport 4

Forza Motorsport 4
The world-class Forza Motorsport franchise is back on its fourth installment of the best selling XBOX 360 racing game everyone love because of its world-class car selection, world-class tuning, and world-class personalization.

FM4 is a safe haven for the car enthusiasts who are willing to tackle against the modern conventions of today's industry where fuel economy reigns over performance. Here, this game provides more features than the previous three games and it is the first Forza game to feature Top Gear-related content because of the collaboration between the Forza Motorsport franchise and BBC's Top Gear franchise.

WORLD-CLASS CAR SELECTION:
Forza Motorsport 4 offers over 500 cars from over 80 manufacturers, each with their own unique exterior, interior, performance, and the pride of nations, spanning half a century of cars from North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Australia. You can see some of your old favorites such as the Lexus LFA, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Bugatti Veyron, Honda Civic Type-R Euro, Subaru Legacy B4 BM9, Nissan GT-R Spec V, McLaren MP4-12C, Lamborghini Murcielago SV, and others. There's also newcomers to the game as well such as the Honda EK-9 Civic Type R, the Ford XB Falcon as seen from Mad Max, Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf, Lexus CT 200h, and the cars from Top Gear's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment such as the Suzuki Liana (known in Japan as the Aerio) sedan and the Kia c'eed.

New on this game is the AutoVista feature where players can explore different cars by the way the doors are opened, getting inside the vehicle, hear engine sounds and you can hear commentary from Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson. To unlock more cars for Autovista experience, you can take part on Autovista challenges and if you win, you can explore more about these cars on Autovista.

More new cars are coming soon as DLC packs starting next month but to keep you covered, players can purchase a Season Pass that covers six months of upcoming DLC content coming soon.

WORLD-CLASS RACETRACKS:
Forza Motorsport 4 takes you around the world to race against some of the finest racers for a true globe-trotting experience unlike any other. New to this game are Bernese Alps (original track takes place at Switzerland), Hockenheimring (world circuit takes place at Germany), Indianapolis Motor Speedway (world circuit takes place at North America), Infineon Raceway (world circuit takes place at North America), and The Top Gear Test Track.

WORLD-CLASS GAMEPLAY:
Forza Motorsport 4 changes the racing gameplay with its impressive gameplay and since this is the first to allow two ways to play; one by controller and other hands-free courtesy of Kinect. The way you turn, drift, or pass is rated by four bars at the left side of the screen. The level-up system been changed and there are different benefits. For instance, if you leveled up your driver level, you can choose one of the different car bonuses varying by class and if you spend hours racing with your car, you'll gain affinity levels which is somewhat similar from Ridge Racer 7. Higher affinity levels on car brands will give you discounts or cash bonuses. Aside from racing, there are some mini-games you can find such as Car Bowling, Car Soccer, Tag Virus, and others that you can find it more enjoyable than racing.

WORLD-CLASS PERSONALIZATION:
Customization is Forza's top priority and players can customize with various engine tunes, tire setups, transmissions, body kits, drive train conversions, and other tuning essentials to make it more powerful depending on the budget. Also the top priority is decorating your ride with various decals handmade by you and others. From here, you can create versions of famous race cars, liveries, or even itashas as well. Creativity in FM4 is the biggest world-class priority.

WORLD-CLASS CONNECTIVITY:
The biggest priority of FM4 is online connectivity. The new Rivals mode is somewhat similar from Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3 because you can challenge against other players' ghosts for the best record and winning against these will give you cash prizes. If you noticed that someone beats your ghost, you can issue them a revenge and try the very best you can. New to Forza 4 are "Car Clubs" where you can start your very own "owners club" on the net much like you're starting a car club in real life. Join a car club or become the admin of the car club, whatever floats your boat. This is the best way to connect with Forza Faithfuls from around the world.

The Limited Collector's Edition will give you world-class bonuses such as a special disc case made of metal, The Cars of Forza Motorsport 4 by Top Gear booklet, VIP Membership (requires online connectivity), VIP Car Pack, BMW Custom Design Car Pack, and for pre-order bonuses, Launch Bonus car pack.

You are in control.

S. Vettel at the Nissan Gallery

A day after the Japanese GP at Suzuka Circuit, where Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel (known to fans as S. Vettel) defended his "Formula One World Champion", a special meet-and-greet with Sebastian Vettel was held at the Nissan Global Headquarters at Yokohama.

Sebastian Vettel F1 2011 World Champion
Celebration Event

This Sebastian Vettel F1 2011 World Champion Celebration Event held at Nissan Global Headquarters was packed with a talk section where the best staff from Nissan and Infiniti interview all about S. Vettel's fastest accomplishments aside from being a 2-time F1 World Champ. There was also the autograph part where everyone wants their stuff signed by S. Vettel himself. Even the ladies from Japan just can't get enough of the youngest F1 champion.

How did an owner of the Mitsubishi i MiEV goes Biribiri?

Biribiri lands to this i-MiEV


Spotted at the 2011 Ita-G Festa, what you see is not some kind of a Mitsubishi i-MiEV you would expect.

The owner of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV uses its "electric car" advantage to make an itasha i-MiEV fully loaded with everything BIRIBIRI! That is, Mikoto Misaka from the To Aru series. Obvious? Because she's BIRIBIRI, the owner took an advantage to her powers in order to create an i-MiEV itasha packed with everything Mikoto Misaka. You would wanna guess where would the i-MiEV charger attached? Simple, to a pile of Misaka Sisters figures.

If electric cars became a common, who can make an electric itasha?

You can't have this M3 (but you can do this on GT5)

BMW M3 Showcar "Chrome Bullet"


This is no ordinary M3 at its first glance because this kind of M3 was colored in "Chrome Silver", calling this the BMW M3 Showcar Chrome Bullet.

No, you can't have this kind of M3 but you can do this on Gran Turismo 5. If you have a "Chrome Silver" in your color collection and if you have a BMW M3 E92 in your garage, try and paint with this.

Check out the gallery:

Is this the 2012 JDM Subaru Impreza?

Is this the 2012 JDM Subaru Impreza?


Is this the 2012 JDM Subaru Impreza?

Is this the 2012 JDM Subaru Impreza?

Is this the 2012 JDM Subaru Impreza?

The 2012 all-new Subaru Impreza already made its world premiere at the 2011 New York Auto Show but a certain Minkara blogger leaked some photos that what it claimed to be the all new, fourth-generation, Subaru Impreza. The exterior and interior details look somewhat similar to the ones shown at the New York Auto Show.



For the Japan-spec 4G IMPREZA, the hatchback model will be labeled as IMPREZA SPORT (スバル・インプレッサスポーツ) while the 4-door sedan model will be labeled as IMPREZA G4 (スバル・インプレッサG4).

G4? R U KIDDING ME? OWWS? HINDI NGA?! Whoa there. Looks like the Impreza G4 is what's too similar to the Legacy B4. Previous Impreza sedan was called Impreza Anesis but for the 4th generation Impreza sedan, it is called G4? Impreza G4? Geez...

Also, the new Impreza will be powered with two newly developed FB boxer engine. One is the all-new FB16 engine that produces 114PS of power and 150Nm of torque while the FB20 engine (as seen on the Forester), produces 150PS of power and 196Nm of torque. Available transmission variants will be a Lineartronic CVT or a 5-speed Manual transmission, depending on the variant.

It will also have Eyesight (アイサイト) system as well too. This system can discern other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists using twin cameras. It can also adapt automatic braking too just like the naughty Volvo S60. Looks like both the new "Impreza Sport" and the "Impreza G4" are going to be naughty.

Both the new Impreza Sport and the new Impreza G4 will be making a premiere next month with sales commence this late December 2011, some sources say.

2011 - Let's celebrate the World Champ

Let's Celebrate the World Champion!


The Japanese GP held at Suzuka Circuit became historical. For a man like Sebastian Vettel, he needs one last point to defend his title but he successfully got 15 points (when he landed 3rd place). With the score of 324 points, Sebastian Vettel was once again defending his title as F1 Champion. Japanese GP winner, Jenson Button from McLaren-Mercedes now has 210 points.


And for something special because S. Vettel defended his crown as the "World Champion", Gran Turismo 5 has a double treat for the players for a limited time. Beginning now up until October 16, 2011 23:59 Japan Standard Time, players can take part of the Sebastian Vettel F1 2011 World Champion Celebration Event, where they can race against the clock with the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2010 S.

The Gran Turismo Red Bull X2010 S. Vettel can now be yours once you start up the game and logged in to your PSN account. If you don't have the X2010 S. Vettel, then this is good news for you but for those who already have one, keep it as a souvenir. This bonus is valid until October 16 and you can receive this prize only once.

UK Top Gear fans want Top Gear USA

Top Gear USA Season One DVD

R U KIDDING ME? VXR8 GTS wins MPG Marathon! Owws? Hindi Nga?!

2011 Vauxhall VXR8 GTS


You might think that hybrids and diesels always win the Fleet World MPG Marathon, but chances are that you are wrong. On the Fleet World MPG Marathon, the Vauxhall VXR8 GTS emerged as the champion on this kind of fuel consumption battle.

R U KIDDING ME? Owws? Hindi Nga?!

The Vauxhall VXR8 GTS, British version of the HSV GTS, emerged victorious on the two-day, 350 mile fuel consumption battle but how? This Vauxhall VXR8 GTS was driven by Top Gear online editor, Chris Mooney, along with Vauxhall archivist and eco-driving expert, Andrew Duerden.

The VXR8 GTS's fuel consumption is 7.4km/L (21.0 MPG UK) but Mooney managed to improve it even further by 53%, resulting to 11.4km/L (32.14 MPG UK)!

Looks like there is a lesson learned that fuel economy is not relied on the car itself but for the driver himself that makes the difference, whichever comes first...
