Honda stops sales of some 2016 Civic models

The Civic model is quite an essential one for Honda in the US, alongside the CR-V SUV and Accord midsize sedan, as all three nameplates sold more than 1 million units for the third year in a row. And to issue a stop-sell for it is not quite good for its image and annual figures.

Honda has discovered that its 2016 models could suffer serious engine problems, because of a missing or mis-set piston rings that could cause units to stall or fail. Therefore, the automaker told its dealers at the end of January not to sell anyCivics anymore, declining to give details of the number of cars affected by the issue.

Honda spokesman Chris Martin said the company will issue a recall statement once the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will approve the recall plan, but replacement parts were not available at the time the automaker issued the stop-sale. Hondasaid it expected to be ready to provide all the parts and tools necessary for the repair sometime in mid-March and it would notify right way the owners. Civic’s problems come in the middle of the airbags crisis triggered by Takata’s defective inflators, which forced Honda to lower its forecast for consolidated sales revenue for the current fiscal year by 50 billion yen (443 million dollars).

Hennessey’s twin-turbo, supercharged Hellcat Challenger

Hennessey has come up with a unique package for the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, adding a set of turbochargers to the factory supercharged Hemi. The company claims over a thousand horsepower at the transmission from the aptly named HPE1000 Challenger.

The Hennessey HPE1000 Challenger’s twin turbochargers feed the supercharger for a hefty increase in power. The package is somewhat simple in construction, taking the otherwise-stock Hellcat Hemi and adding unique stainless steel turbo manifolds, twin-ball-bearing turbochargers, a new air to water intercooler system, a high capacity fuel system, and a good engine tune.

The stock Hellcat Challenger produces 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque at the transmission, with roughly 11 pounds of boost pressure. The Hennessey HPE1000 package uses the triple-charging setup to pack 15psi of boost, for a whopping 1,032hp and 987lb-ft of torque.

With a set of sticky drag radial tires, the team recorded 0-60 times of just 2.7 seconds and a quarter mile best of 9.9 at 142 miles per hour.

Audi RS Q3 performance unleashed – 367 hp/465 Nm

#Audi has introduced a new top-shelf variant for its #Q3 range, called the #RS_Q3_performance . Sitting just above the #regular_RS_Q3 , the new variant features the same 2.5 litre TFSI five-cylinder engine, but is tuned to deliver more power.

The Audi RS Q3 performance variant delivers 367 hp and 465 Nm of torque from 1,625 rpm to 5,550 rpm – 27 hp and 15 Nm more than the regular RS Q3. Audi explains that the extra power has been achieved by increasing the cooling capacity of the main radiator and an optimising the vehicle’s fuel pump. But despite the power bump, there’s still not enough to beat the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG’s 381 hp and 475 Nm.
