The prancing horse
A recent big birthday (also by a competing brand) and the announcement about Ferrari’s Engine of the Year awards have inspired us to come up with our list of favourite red Italian cars…
Have you seen our Top List of 0-100km/h times? You should, it’s really quite impressive. Anyway, we don’t just strap our fancy equipment to most press cars for testing their acceleration, no sir, since late 2016 we also do a once-off emergency stop from 100km/h. Here follows the list of cars from best to worst, by stopping distance:
Like last year, we asked you to vote for your favourites through our new website and social media pages but, unlike last year, y’all must’ve been so drunk that you couldn’t be bothered.
Whether you are storing your current car for a few weeks while going on holiday or if you are a serious car collector, here are a few pointers about storage which we picked up over the years:
Welcome to one of NamWheels’ more regular features – our list of top 5 car-related items. Do you long for more action in motorsport? Well, we might have the answer for you…
Have you ever experienced road rage or had someone hoot at you while waving a specific finger in your general direction? Chances are that you made one of the following mistakes which are becoming quite a common occurrence on our roads. That’s a hint, by the way. Please don’t do any of these!
Times are tough. You’re living on two minute noodles and your shoes have holes in them but you saved plenty of big notes (and a meaty deposit) for a shiny new car. Of course you could always look at a more affordable second-hand car (which offers better value) but we are focussing on new cars only.
So we don’t just drive around aimlessly, take random photos or count all the cup holders of test cars – oh no. Whenever we can, there’s a quiet stretch of road which we like to visit with our clever GPS device and a GoPro to measure and film a car’s acceleration. So; for your and everyone else’s entertainment, here is a list of all our measured 0-100km/h times (most with video!) from fastest to slowest:
So we thought of doing something fun for this top5 list but the local motor industry isn’t exactly fun at the moment; quite the opposite.
With that in mind we came up with a slightly more serious list – things we consider vital when purchasing a vehicle. Tough times and lacking funds should not be a reason to stop dreaming about your next car. We hope that these tips will encourage you to go out there and find your dream car!
So here’s something different. Each year we list our favourite new cars which were launched over the last 12 months but this time around, instead of us telling you which ones we liked, our Facebook page invited YOU to vote your favourite new ride of 2016.
The list of candidates was chosen from the launches we attended or vehicles we thought were brilliant newcomers and worthy of being included in this line-up.
