Aug 1 2014 1:35pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Say “Hybrid” and what most often comes to mind is a vanilla-flavoured commuter with plenty in the way of fuel savings but little in the way of sexy sizzle. That might have been the case in the early days of the technology a decade ago, but all one needs to do is look into the design studios of the world’s performance automakers to see that hybrids have made the leap into the sports car and even the supercar ...

Aug 1 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The industry is full of so many aftermarket companies that it’s hard to keep track of all of them. I admittedly don’t know all of them, including, at least up to this point, German tuning company K.MAN. The company used to call itself Chiptrick, which is actually a more memorable name than K.MAN, but that’s besides the point. What’s important is that K.MAN has developed a three-stage program for the Audi R8 V-8 tha ...
