AutoComplete: Bugatti put its new titanium brakes through hell and filmed it
Here is what making news on Roadshow.
If you're gonna put fancy skeletonized 3D printed titanium brake calipers on a car that would do damn near 330 miles an hour, then you better make sure they work flawlessly Thankfully that's what Bugatti just did and they had the genius idea to not just film the test, but to release it to all us plebeians who will never get to mash the stop pedal on a big Bugatti.
Ford is recalling 874,000 F-150 and Super Duty trucks over concerns that a faulty engine block heater could cause a fire.
Basically, crud and water can work its way up the cable from the heater itself and cause corrosion, which can, in theory, lead to a short circuit.
No es bueno, friends.
Around half the affected trucks are in the US, and the other half is in the Great White North.
It's a quick fix, thankfully, and Ford will start notifying owners soon.
It may not be quite ready for public consumption but freighliners EM2 Electric Box Truck is now loose in the streets for testing.
Well, to be more specific, one of them is.
Penske is the lucky company to take delivery of it and it will be assisting freightliner and its data collection and ahead of it's scheduled 2021 release of the truck to the masses.
The EM2 will 230 miles on a charge and Daimler says it will fast charge to 80% at around 60 minutes.
