Rough Ride – A Bumpy Road Ahead for Driving Schools
Potholes can be a serious danger to motorists and an expensive inconvenience for driving instructors. With the economic downturn hitting the industry, instructors are tending to hold back from buying a new tuition vehicle to save money on loan repayments with many more older driving school cars on the road. Older cars with increasingly worn suspension systems and less noise reduction can have difficulty in dealing with a rough road surface. The added noise factor from damaged roads can be a hindrance when delivering verbal instructions and disturb a pupil’s concentration.
Learner drivers tend to stare straight ahead and not look into the distance far enough which often leads to an instructor grabbing the wheel in order to swerve and avoid potholes at the last instance. Tyre damage can be severe and holes difficult to see if it has been raining heavily and standing water hides them from view.
The dangers are even more acute for those taking motorcycle training in Nottingham. A slippery road surface combined with potholes can be a nightmare for motorcyclists and car drivers must give them enough room should they need to swerve to avoid …
Waterless is Perfect
People often like to throw around the word perfect in places where it doesn’t fit. When referring to people there is often no way to say that someone is perfect as everyone comes with their own faults. With other things and products it is often hard to call something perfect as everyone has different opinions on whether it is good or bad. Sometimes though there is a product that is just so useful and so versatile that it really can be called perfect. We believe that the waterless car wash is one of those perfect products.

Royal Warrants of Appointment – The United Kingdom

The 700 Year Partnership
When British companies take their products to market in Germany they might not be aware that they are continuing a trade partnership that extends back seven centuries.The Hanseatic League of German towns began trading nationally and internationally in the late Middle Ages, and by 1320 they had a base in London at the site now occupied by Cannon Street railway station. This pioneering group is still remembered today with airline Lufthansa literally translated as “Air Hansa”.
As eager as British exporters are to make inroads with the “BRIC” economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China, we shouldn’t underestimate the importance of our longest standing partner. In 2011 Germany ranked second only to the United States as an importer of British goods, accounting for a total of just over A27.5 billion, up almost 20% year on year. Opportunities exist across all sectors, with key targets such as aerospace and automotive engineering particularly strong.

Proton Releases New Car
Malaysian automaker Proton, which is currently suffering from slumping sales, recently unveiled their newest sedan. The Malaysian government which has a majority share in the automaker is currently having talks with Volkswagen AG. This development is considered as the reason why Proton has set high sales projection for the new sedan. The sales goal was not only for the domestic auto market but also includes exports to Europe.
The new sedan was actually meant to be unveiled before. But due to some reasons, the automaker postponed the unveiling and has only recently decided to release the car. With the unveiling of the new sedan, the Malaysian automaker is calling for the Malaysian government to push on with the deal that will see Volkswagen pouring in money on the cash-strapped automaker. In return, Volkswagen will have a strong presence in the Malaysian auto market.
The arrival of the new Proton Persona has been well received by critics and consumers alike. The styling of the new Proton sedan is considerably better looking than other Proton models. Cars made by the Malaysian automaker have been scorned by many for overemphasized designs. The new Persona though has critics saying that …
2012 Brabus 800 Coupe – 800 Hp, 1,047 Lb-Ft of Torque – Need I Say More?
Brabus does it again! They took an already powerful Mercedes Benz CL and put it on a Swedish steroid diet, locked it in a gym and took an already beautiful face and gave it a facelift! The result of all this trickery is the 2012 Brabus 800 Coupe, which is similar to the 2012 Brabus Rocket 800 which we wrote about earlier.
You will note that all of the pictures of this model were taken at the Brabus Middle East branch, which is located in Dubai, UAE. There is a good reason for that, and it’s probably because you need Middle Eastern oil money to buy one of these. To be specific, this Brabus will set you back… well there was no stated price for the car, but because it’s not disclosed we believe it’s expensive, at least a quarter-million.
And once you purchase one of these, you will know that your not-so-hard-earned oil money was well spent. I say that because you will get what is hands down the fastest and most powerful luxury coupe at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show.
1985 Ferrari Testarossa Review
Ferrari has a formidable presence in the international motoring scene and there isn’t a car enthusiast in the world who can’t automatically paint a mental picture of the Ferrari Testarossa when called to task.The cherry-red finish with the silver rims and cream-colored interior is the combination that made Ferrari famous and that made the Testarossa the most admired car of the 1980s, leagues above Chevrolet’s Stingray Corvette.
Ferrari started production of the Testarossa in 1984, with the first model to hit the streets being the 1985. For the 11 years it was in production, there were a few minor tweaks to improve the overall appeal and functionality of the sports car, but the basic model stayed the same, and the original was always considered to be the best of the bunch.
Testarossa wasn’t just an average production model for Ferrari. This was to be the car to succeed the Berlinetta Boxer and hopefully put Ferrari back on the map. Everything about Ferrari’s newest sports car just stood out as dominant and “cool.” The name itself was derived from the red cam covers – testarossa literally means “red head” in Italian.
Undoubtedly, the Ferrari Testarossa instantly took …
