Shenanigans With Jet Engines : Videos

Remember the old urban legend about a guy who attached a JATO bottle to a car? That myth came from a time when miniaturized jet/rocket technology was still in its infancy, but it didn't stop people from telling and retelling that story no matter how implausible it seemed from a technical and financial standpoint.

Technology has since caught up with urban legend, as proven almost every week by the TV show "Mythbusters," but good outcomes remain elusive when jet engines are attached to small vehicles.

Submitted for your approval: a Mini Cooper with a small and very functional jet engine bolted to the interior of the cargo compartment, attempting a run at the Snetterton raceway in Norfolk, England.

The jet engine itself is a Rolls-Royce Viper 203 sourced from an Avro Shackleton bomber, good for 2,800 pounds of thrust. The fuel economy is a bit on the bad side: almost 16 gallons a minute.

Aaaaaaand it smashes into a wall.

The SP-200 SIN Announced! : News
The SP-200 SIN Announced! : News

The American supercar lineup, including the 1,700 hp LM 2 Streamliner by Lyons Motor Car, is getting another addition thanks to PSC Motors. The Las Vegas-based startup has revealed their new hybrid hypercar today, according to an article from MotorAuthority.com.

The hypercar, called the SP-200 SIN, looks to be one of the most powerful and fastest vehicles to come out of the United States, or the planet, for that matter. This accolade is all thanks to the claimed 2,400 hp output, which is up from their first claim of 1,700 hp.

Powering the car is a twin-turbocharged 9.0-liter V8 engine, as well as an electric motor. On it’s own, the V8 engine is said to produce 1,650 hp, while the electric motor zaps out 750 hp. Mated to these power sources is an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends all of the power to the rear wheels. With a full charge, the rear-axle-mounted electric motor can propel the car by itself for 60 miles.

With this insane amount of power and a weight of 3,750 lbs, PSC Motors claims the SP-200 SIN will complete a 0-60 mph run in 2.6 seconds and will hit a top speed of 280 mph.

As of right now, there are only digital renderings of the car, but PSC Motors is looking to start production in 2016 and are taking orders for the five planned examples of the car now.

2016 Mazda Mazda2 : Current Models
2016 Mazda Mazda2 : Current Models

Like most Mazda cars and crossovers, the diminutive Mazda 2 was designed to deliver signature sporty handling and a fun-to-drive character. It's a standout among subcompacts for its reflexes and an ability to produce driver smiles, but not without flaws revealed by newer competitors. The 2016 Mazda 2 marks the model's second generation and looks to amend its deficiencies with a styling overhaul, a new chassis and engine, and new technology.

Complementing the Mazda 2's curvier lines and larger grille -- design elements incorporated from the Mazda 3, Mazda 6 and CX-5 models -- is a re-engineered chassis. The 2 will be the latest model to benefit from Mazda's "Skyactiv" engineering philosophy of lightweight construction and fuel-efficient technologies. The new Mazda 2 should sit atop a longer wheelbase, with overall body length increasing by perhaps 6 inches or more. It will also be slightly taller.

The current Mazda 2 may be the best-handling car in its class, but it's not particularly powerful, fast or fuel-efficient. The standard 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine generates just 100 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque, well short of competitors like the Ford Fiesta or Honda Fit. Meager power output can sometimes mean better mpg, but Mazda 2 models equipped with automatic transmissions trail competitors in combined fuel economy (manual transmission models more closely match rivals, but again with less power).

Mazda hasn't announced a U.S. engine lineup yet, but the Mazda 2 will offer some combination of the three engines offered in Europe and Japan: a 1.3-liter four-cylinder, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a 1.5-liter diesel four-cylinder.

The smaller engine isn't likely for American buyers, nor is the diesel, making a new Skyactiv 1.5-liter the obvious replacement for the current engine. Whether the new four-cylinder makes more power remains to be seen, but that power should at least be more accessible with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

These alone will be worthy upgrades over the current five-speed manual and four-speed automatic units. Factor in a slightly lighter chassis and the new Mazda 2 should improve on its current 0-60 times of 9.9 seconds (manual transmission) and 10.7 seconds (automatic).

The 2016 Mazda 2 should also make impressive leaps inside the cabin, starting with a new infotainment system controlled by a dial-button array in the center console and a dash-mounted color display. Smartphone integration and navigation will also be available through the Mazda Connect suite of apps and connected services.

A longer wheelbase and increased overall length may also give the Mazda 2 more luggage space. Its current 13.3 cubic feet is average for the segment.

The 2016 Mazda 2's promise of enhanced style, performance and technology make a compelling argument for waiting until it goes on sale in mid-2015, however. Check back for a full review of the new Mazda 2, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.

Legarto Invisium : Concept Cars
Legarto Invisium : Concept Cars

Designed as a 2015-age car in 2012, the Legarto Inivisium is a brain-child of Polish designer Paulo Czyzewski (spelled much differently in actual Polish, mind you). You might recognize him as the bloke who cooked up the Bugatti Gangloff, one of the more famous concepts of this decade.

This concept deviates from the usual over-the-top "concept" tropes: impossible angles that make cars look like Playstation models and dangerously implemented curves that give Czyzewski's concepts an otherworldly feel... the same feel that makes it seem not many of his visions will see it to reality. An Invisium dream, if you will.

Okay, I'll stop.

The Legarto Invisium looks more realistic, is the point. The interior is something else to behold (although most concept interiors looks doable, to be honest), but the chassis seems to take after a Jaguar XK. You know, a car that both exists and is pretty popular. The look is more modern, which is funny, because originally when I set out to feature this car I was looking for the anticipated specs. It's likeable as a concept, and looks extremely customizable, and I'd like to see one happen.

Whenever that'll be. Sergio happened, even if it DID eventually get a windshield.

You can’t get back all of those keys, wallets, and iPods that have mysteriously “disappeared” over the years, but thanks to a new device launching later this year, you may never lose anything else again.

This gizmo is simply called Tile. Crowdfunded through an incredibly successful Selfstarter campaign, Tile allows you to use Bluetooth-like sonar to ping and find any item that’s gone missing—as long as it’s in your immediate vicinity—or utilize other people’s accounts and devices to approximate the location of the item (a benefit over other similar devices already on the market).

Down to business, then.
The actual Tile is about 1/3 the size of a credit card, with a sticky adhesive that allows you to place it on just about anything you want. Tile then pairs with a number of Apple products (iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad 3rd and 4th generation, and the 5th generation iPod Touch), from which you can hone in on whatever you’re looking for. As you get closer to your lost item, you’ll get a message on your device showing that you’re getting warmer. It also has a built-in speaker that chirps when you’re close enough to activate it. If you’re not close enough to ping what you’re looking for (or someone actually swiped your stuff), the app will crowdsource and use other people’s accounts to point you in the direction of what you’re looking for through a dropped pin on your map.

While $19 per tile may seem a little steep, it’s a good investment—and lot cheaper than replacing a lost bike, tablet, or computer. The biggest drawback of the device may be its battery life: your Tile is going to die after a year of use, so you’ll have to replace it every 365 days.
