Of course, Chris Harris did another awesome review. This time, New BMW 435i… feels weird saying “4” in the front. Like I’ve wrote in few blog back, BMW have killed off 3 series and using “4” as new coupe series.

It was interesting to hear, how he stated that, 435i is most borning yet fun car… maybe that’s because BMW was aiming that luxury sport car? Or holding that “exciting” parts for M series? I don’t know

Teen Driving Facts

One of the reader send me this info (Thank you Felix). It’s pretty interesting… yet scary facts. This is not only for family… but couples & singles. You may not be teenager… but that doesn’t mean driver next to isn’t.

I enjoyed this fact:

“Talking on the phone doubles the likelihood of an accident and slows young driver’s reaction time down to that of a 70-year-old.”

Some days, feels like 70-year-old person has faster reaction than those teenagers.

Caterham Seven 620R

You thought, Caterham Seven 500R was crazy? Well, Caterham have made 620R!

The Caterham Se7en 620R Is The Most Extreme Se7en Ever

The Caterham Se7en 620R packs 310 supercharged horsepower, does 0-62 mph in under 2.8 seconds (if you’re fast enough with your shifts), and keeps going until 155 mph. Remember the Caterham R500? It just got better.

Debuting at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend with Caterham Racing GP2 driver Alexander Rossithis behind its wheel, the 620R comes with the following enhancements:

The car features a unique gunmetal chassis, an air-flow optimised nose cone and a race-developed cooling package. De Dion rear suspension and wide track front suspension units are complemented by high-performance dampers all round, while the car sits on lightweight, 13” alloy wheels fitted with track-inspired Avon ZZR tyres.

In the cockpit, there are more noticeable improvements, with features including performance-focused instrumentation and ergonomic switchgear.

Meanwhile, carbon fibre interior panels and dash plus carbon fibre race seats and a Q/R race steering wheel complete the sports feel to the interior.

After the 620R, Caterham will also offer the 620S, which will also have a 310 hp Duratec engine but “offers a little more accessibility,” whatever that means in Caterhamland. They certainly don’t recommend it for beginners:

While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this car for those inexperienced in driving Caterhams, we always ensure that even our fastest cars retain the manageable delivery of power that makes them accessible, despite the daunting statistics.

Yeah, right. That should keep the Health and Safety Department happy.

The price for all that? £49,995 (~$74,200). But don’t worry, Caterham is also preparing “a new ultra-efficient, affordable entry-level Seven that will sit at the opposite end of the range”. Sounds like a bargain? Oh yes!
