Building a car is no easy task. Hundreds of hours, sweat, blood and dollars have to be thrown at a project. Imagine, though, stopping at regular intervals to document the build, then putting all those photos together to create one heck of a stop motion video of the build. Well, here’s one that’s bound to blow your mind.
From BBC – The Silverstone Circuit has signed a 17-year deal (17 years??!! – Ed.) with Formula One to host the British Grand Prix. Silverstone was the host of the first Grand Prix championship in 1950, and since 1987, hosted every British Grand Prix in Formula One. Donington Park was supposed to be the new venue for the British Grand Prix this year beginning next year, but their finances fell through the floor.
From LA Times – OMG! Danica Patrick is in NASCAR. On Tuesday, Danica Patrick announced that she would drive in a “limited number” of races in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. Danica’s IndyCar resume consists of 1 win, 3 poles, and 81 starts. Her first season was in 2005, and she finished 5th (best career finish) in 2009. Not bad for a 27 year old, but in my personal opinion, it’s better to be great at one thing, than so-so in many things.
From Reuters – Volkswagen is buying a 20% stake in Suzuki for $2.5 billion. This is not too long after Volkswagen just bought a 49.9% stake in Porsche AG. After this transaction, VW will have stake in 11 different car brands. VW’s goal is to become the world’s number one automaker by 2018. Toyota, we await for your rebuttal.
From Suzuki.com – Are you a new car buyer looking for a sporty mid-sized sedan? Are the Acura TSX and Audi A4 on your list? If so, how about a free $100, or maybe a car that you overlooked? From now until January 31st, 2010, if you purchase a 2010 Acura TSX or Audi A4 within ten days of test driving the Suzuki Kizashi, and submit proper documentation within 30 days of purchase, Suzuki will give you $100. This is a great offer in my opinion, a total win-win situation. Have you taken the Kizashi Test-Drive Challenge? If so, we’d love to hear your experience!
We’re so confident you’ll love the Suzuki Kizashi, we’ll give you $100 if you test drive it and still buy an Acura TSX® or Audi A4®.
“The car ran to 60 MPH in 7.8 seconds, and the 1/4 mile in 16 seconds at 88 MPH. This puts it in the same league as the Acura TSX.”
— Road & Track
“Kizashi is easily the most athletic car in its class, and even a few rungs up … We tested the Kizashi against even some cars a few classes up like VW Passat, Acura TSX and Audi A4.”
— Left Lane News
Suzuki is confident that the Kizashi provides a compelling alternative to pricey premium sports sedans. So confident, in fact that we will pay $100 for any qualified buyer of a new 2010 Audi A4 2.0T or 2010 Acura TSX 2.4 if they first test-drive a Kizashi and still decide to purchase the more expensive premium branded sedan.
