DMC Injects The Bentley Bentayga With An Extra 100 Horsepower



By: Sam McEachern
The Bentley Bentayga is indisputably the world’s fastest and most powerful SUV, however German exotic and luxury car tuner DMC felt the need to go ahead and inject it with an additional 100 horsepower anyway.
DMC has dubbed its take on Bentley’s first-ever SUV the ‘Bentayga Gigante’, with the latter half of that nameplate likely referring to the monstrous amount of power being pumped out by the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12. The engine churns out a significant 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque from the factory, but after DMC’s exhaust and engine management tune is applied, it gets a bump to 700hp and 778 lb-ft. Acceleration stats stay the same, however the top speed rises from 187 mph to 193 mph.

DMC has also tried its hand at improving the appearance of the Bentayga with forged alloy wheels ranging from 22-inches to 24-inches in size and carbon fiber accents for the hood, rocker panels and rear liftgate. The treatment continues inside with carbon fiber steering wheel accents, custom Italian leather upholstery and hand stitched leather floor mats. DMC says it can also expand on its interior customizations program if the customer desires.

It's Official: Volkswagen World's Largest Automaker 2016. Or Maybe Toyota?

If you have been dying to find out whether Toyota defended its title of World’s Largest Automaker in 2016, or whether Volkswagen fulfilled its dream of becoming the world’s largest, you now have the official answer: This year, World’s Largest Automaker is whoever you want it to be. Volkswagen has beat Toyota. Or maybe not.
This will be a long story, full of numbers. If your eyes glaze over already, I will let you go with the news that Volkswagen is finally ahead of Toyota -- if you believe the published numbers. If you share my perverse fetish for car counting, and if you read the rest of the story, expect your beliefs to be shaken.
worldslargest16
A few minutes ago, Toyota announced global sales of 10,175,000 units in 2016, and global production of 10,213,486 units. A few weeks ago, Volkswagen said it delivered 10.3 million vehicles worldwide in 2016. General Motors releases its global data only quarterly. Until that happens on February 7, we need to estimate. GM is out of contention.
In terms of production, the two main contenders are separated by nearly 100,000 units. This is a surprising development.
In terms of sales, the distance is even greater. Oddly enough, the World’s Largest Automaker title is not bestowed based on how many vehicles an automaker has sold. Global automakers are ranked on how many cars they have produced. The ranking is done by OICA, the Paris-based International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers institution that is nearly as old as the automobile. OICA has been maintaining these stats longer than even I can remember. OICA is the go-to-place for Wikipedia, and for statistical number crunchers from Germany’s Satistisches Bundesamt to the United Nations. OICA has its reasons for ranking automakers by production instead of sales, we will touch on some below. For now, let’s simply remember that the world’s automakers themselves do not trust their own sales statistics enough to be measured by them.
If we want to establish the World’s Largest Automaker according to the official OICA rulebook, then we need to rank them by production. That brings a problem: Toyota publishes monthly production statistics, Volkswagen does not. Volkswagen publishes “deliveries,” a distinction that isometimes is lost on the harried reporter.
What are "deliveries?" A few days ago, I discussed this matter with Leslie Bothge, Volkswagen Group’s Wolfsburg-based spokesperson for sales, production and procurement. I told her that so far, I have used Volkswagen’s delivery data in lieu of the missing production data, and if that’s wrong, would she be able to produce a production number? Ms. Bothge said that deliveries and production “differ slightly,” because after all, “a car that was produced in 2016 may only have been delivered in 2017.” And no, citing internal policies, she would not provide a production number.

Aventador Replacement to Retain Naturally Aspirated V12


By: Sebastien Bell

The mad scientists at Lamborghini are in no hurry to turbocharge the V12, according to Lambo boss Stefano Domenicali. Like Luke Skywalker, the Aventador and its successor will fight the good fight with their breathing unassisted.
With the industry (read: Ferrari) moving increasingly towards Darth Vader-like turbocharging, there were fears that Lamborghini, standard bearer of old fashioned vehicular fun, would cut the V12 from the lineup like a limb. That turns out, though, not to be the case.
“Our position in the [Volkswagen] group must be different, and a naturally aspirated V12 engine is part of that difference,” Domenicali told Australia’s Car Advice.  “I don’t think we will be left behind at all by not adopting turbo charging. There is space for us to be different.”
Not only does this apply to Aventador, though. Domenicali revealed that the next big Lambo will have a V12 heart.
“The Aventador has more than five or six more years to run and the next platform also has a V12 at the centre of the project,” said Domenicali.
Although electrification will arrive with the Urus, the Lamborghini V12 is still safe.

Mk8 GTI to Produce 260 hp with Electric Help




By: Sebastien Bell
It’s the Newport Folk Festival all over again as the GTI is embracing the Volk revival and going electric. The next generation GTI’s traditional gas engine will reportedly be backed by a 48V electrical system. The mild hybrid system will boost performance while improving economy.
Set to launch in Europe as a 2020 model, Autocar reports that the R&D department have set a hp target of 260 hp, similar to the current GTI Clubsport.
The 48V electrical system will integrate a starter motor and might also allow VW to bin the traditional turbo in favor of an electric compressor, a la Audi SQ7 TDI. The electric compressor would allow for torque that comes lower down in the rev range and sustains longer. There could also be a boost button, to give you a little more juice at the top.
Volkswagen-Golf-GTI-clubsport-Mk7-2015-412
Europe’s current 1.5-liter Golf TSI Bluemotion already uses a similar system, but it uses twin 12V electric motors. This allows for cylinder deactivation and engine-off coasting. The coming 48V is set to improve on the current system.
The Mk8 Golf will have a slightly longer wheelbase and a slightly wider track width. That said, it will stay on the MQB platform, albeit a modernized version with more lightweight materials that should help it shed about 110 lbs.
According to Autocar, the outward design has already been set. Designed by Michael Mauer, responsible for Porsche’s current offerings, the Mk8 is said to be immediately familiar as a Golf. Despite that, it will have more pronounced wheel arches, a more upright tailgate, a thin grille, and smaller, more angular headlights.
With less weight, more power, a broader torque curve, and a design penned by the man responsible for Porsche’s handsome lineup, the new GTI, and indeed the Golf family, is looking good.

Watch: Aircooled VWs Frolicking in the snow


By: Sebastien Bell

Few things in life are more entertaining than watching Finns drive in the snow. Throughout the history of motorsport, humble Finland has produced a disproportionate number race winners and in this video we see what happens when they get their hands on aircooled VWs.

As with anyone, Finns seem to like nothing more than a good crash. Few people are quite as quick to jump into action, though. The giggling, the teamwork, the just get back on the road and finish the stage attitude are all deeply charming.
And then there are the cars. Beetles and a Fastback wail bassily in the frigid, snowy stage of the Rengon JM-Putki Rally. As if these cars weren’t desirable enough already, watching a Beetle with rally lights powerslide through the forests of Lapland just pushed an aircooled VW up from idle desire to irrepressible need.
