Bullitt - An Homage to a Ford Icon

The similarities in hardware beg the question: is this car any more than a marketing gimmick? Compared to the GT, the biggest changes come in the power department. The Bullitt sports an intake manifold derived from its more hardened sibling, the GT350, as well as a larger throttle body to allow the extra air to flow into the block, and a high performance engine tune to allow for more tomfoolery. The results? A healthy 475 horsepower (15 more than the standard car).

Driving a Carerra S in its Fatherland Broke my Heart

Driving a Carerra S in its Fatherland Broke my Heart

After years of studying the 911 in detail, watching countless videos and reading every critique that I could get my hands on, I would be able to experience it first hand. It didn’t take very long until I began to get an idea of what Richard Hammond meant when he declared the GT3 the best car ever invented in 2013 – and I was only driving a Carrera S.

Audi's eROT System

Audi's eROT System

eROT is based on a 48 watt electrical system, capable of an energy capacity of 0.5 kilowatt hours and peak system output of 13 kilowatts. Instead of focusing this innovation primarily on fuel savings, however, Audi claims that this new system is focused on providing a more adaptable and adjustable suspension system. As Dr.-Ing. Stefan Knirsch explains, “It… presents us and our customers with entirely new possibilities for adjusting the suspension.” Audi explains that because it can “ideally” adjust to imperfections in road surfaces, a more optimal ride may be created. Additionally, CO2 savings from system implementation are estimated at up to three grams per kilometer. Audi also claims minimal fuel savings as a result of this new damper system, claiming ~0.7 Liters  per 100 kilometers, a figure which seems to stress that this system is not focused primarily on fuel savings.
