Motul’s formulated a special line of oils for classic and modern classic cars based on their age-specific needs.

Car History Timeline: From 3-Wheeled Buggies to Self-Driving Vehicles

Few inventions in history have transformed our lives, culture and environment as much as the automobile. Before 1900, most people spent their lives within a few miles of where they were born. Cars changed all that, allowing people to travel easily, with empowering freedom and autonomy. Henry Ford’s Model T—and factory assembly line—opened a world of mass production, echoed today in every sneaker and smartphone. During World War II, Detroit’s automakers helped secure Allied victory by transforming their factories into “arsenals of democracy,” producing jeeps, tanks, fighter planes and more. After the war, highways began girdling the globe, giving birth

2022 Honda Civic Sedan Features a Cleaner Look, Carryover Engines

  • The new 2022 Honda Civic sedan is here with an attractive redesign and an improved interior.
  • It features the same 2.0-liter and turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engines as before.
  • Honda says it will go on sale in the U.S. this summer.

    Honda Civic generations tend to alternate between revolution and evolution. The outgoing 10th-generation car took big steps forward in terms of styling and performance, so it stands to reason that its successor features a more conservative redesign. Given the new 11th-generation 2022 Civic’s more mature looks, we think that’s a good thing. The new model boasts cleaner styling, carryover engines,

    This Is What Toyota’s Hydrogen Combustion-Engine Racecar Sounds Like

    Toyota is going racing with a hydrogen combustion engine, mainly as an experiment and continuation of Toyota’s somewhat unhinged obsession with hydrogen. Still, I think you will agree that it sounds good.

    Which is to say that it sounds like a car:

    This video is courtesy of Toyota Times, which is some combination of a publication for Toyota fans/promotional content for Toyota/star vehicle for the Japanese actor Teruyuki Kagawa. And no, I don’t understand the existence of Toyota Times either.

    Still, Toyota previously said a three-cylinder hydrogen combustion engine would power a car based on the

    Spending the day at the track is one of the great joys of being a car enthusiast. You can cut loose without fear of a speeding ticket, enjoy exploiting a car’s grip and handling as intended, and refine your high-speed driving skills.
