      they should stick an uprated V8 from B8 into the new B9 RS4. That would be a dream combo.

      Looking at the new Huracan V10, that 4.2 V8 could be tuned to produce up to 490+ hp, which would make it...

      I would take the RS5.

      M3/M4 does nothing for me, sure it's a very accomplished car, but it doesn't sparkle like the previous generations.

      a)long safety car period during #8's stay in the box
      b)Both Audis had a problem with their Turbo setup and both spent some 20ish minutes off the track while they were being fixed.

      The European version weighs around 1020 kg with fluids, but no driver. On the same measurement, Lotus Exige weighed exactly 100 kg less(920 kg). So it is no lightweight car.

      VW has confirmed B8 Euro Passat will feature a new, 2 liter twin turbo TDI with 240 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Launching this fall.

      What I find extremely impressive about this engine id the weight

      3 liter V6 380 hp and 750 Nm diesel weighs LESS than a petrol 3 liter I6 from the new M3/M4.

      It is only 3 kilos heavier than...

      My pick of the e34 generation would be the Alpina B10 4.0 or 4.6, closely followed by an 3.8 e34 M5.

      As far as I can tell, from watching Clarkson's shows for 10+ years, that man is a lot of things, but a racist I think not.

      the 6.0 W12 is capable of well over 500 hp, the reason why VW restricted it to 450 was the gearbox.
      In the Phaeton, it makes 450 hp @ 6000 rpm.
      The VW Nardo W12 had a more extreme version of the...

      Bentley is now using the 8 speed ZF with W12 engine, would it be possible to marry that with Phaeton's engine?

      Be careful, IIRC, the ECU is holding back the engine due to the inability of the 5 spd auto gearbox to handle extra torque.

      6.0 W12 is capable of 600+ hp in naturally aspirated form(VW Nardo W12)...

      One of the things I wonder most about this new JP film is whether they will make dinosaurus feathered, which they should, or will they want to stay true to their appearance from the previous 3 movies.

      I still vividly remember the first time I watcher Jurassic Park, now some 20 years ago. Great movie, awesome book. I very nearly became a paleontologist because of that movie and that book.
