AutoComplete: VW I.D. R smashes Pikes Peak EV record
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
The Volkswagen I.D. R is a winner, baby.
Volkswagen's electric race car shattered the Pike's Peak hill climb record for electric cars, clocking a 7:57.148 run across 12.42 miles and 156 corners.
It beat S��bastien Loeb's previous record from 2013 by about 15 seconds.
If anything, it goes to show that with a little bit of ingenuity and a whole lot of money, go a long way in breaking records.
Harley Davidson is packing up some of its US operations.
The motor cycle manufacturer will eventually outsource production of bikes destined for Europe After retaliatory tariffs raised the overall price of each bike by about $2,200.
For now though, Harley refuses to let consumers bear that extra cost.
But with an annual tariff-absorption price tag of about a hundred-million dollars, Harley Davidson's largess can only last for so long.
The final Dodge Demon and Viper have been auctioned off for charity, and the result will definitely please the United Way.
The pair of cars went to the Barret-Jackson auction and a lucky care fanatic paid a cool $1 million for a little slice of automotive history.
The pair of cars also came with custom build sheets, authentication kits and leathers, iPads filled with media, and a demon crate.
Congratulations to both the United Way and that lucky new owner.
