Elon Musk said that Tesla was the victim of the "vast" | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has accused a company worker of carrying out “extensive and damaging sabotage” to the company’s operations. In a leaked email, Musk says a member of staff made “direct code changes to the Tesla Manufacturing Operating System” under false usernames. The staff member also exported “large amounts of highly sensitive Tesla data to unknown third parties.”• Best electric cars to buy nowThe employee in question has been caught and interrogated. According to the leaked email, his motivation was “that he wanted a promotion that he did not receive.”Musk warns, however, that he suspects “there may be considerably more to this situation than meets the eye”, stating that there is a “long list of organisations that want Tesla to die”. Among the subjects in a potentially wider conspiracy, Musk lists Wall Street short sellers (who have bet on Tesla’s demise on the stock market), oil and gas companies and the “multitude of big gas/diesel car company competitors.”While he concedes such instances of sabotage are often motivated by “something simple like wanting to get back at someone within the company or at the company as a whole”, Musk urges the staff to whom he sent the email to “be extremely vigilant.”The leaked email was followed by a further email from Musk, detailing a small fire on the Tesla production line described as a "strange incident that was hard to explain". Musk said the fire could just be a "random event", but quoted businessman and engineer Andrew Grove's famous line that "only the paranoid survive".Tesla job cuts announced by MuskThis alleged act of sabotage follows the news that Tesla is to let go approximately nine per cent of its workforce, after Musk said it needs to “reduce costs and become profitable”.Musk said jobs would be lost from Tesla’s “salaried population”, but promised “no production associates” will be let go. In an email released by Musk on Twitter, he said the cuts will “not affect our ability to meet Model 3 production targets in the coming months."Blaming “some duplication of roles and job functions” that have emerged as the company has expanded, Musk said Tesla would be “evaluating the criticality” of each position, “assessing the specific skills and abilities of each individual in the company”. Tesla will, however, continue to take on new staff, as a “significant need for additional production personnel” remains within the company. Tesla has been dogged with delays surrounding delivery of its all-electric BMW 3 Series-rivalling Model 3 saloon, but continues to push ahead with future products such as the Tesla Semi truck, the new Roadster and an EV alternative the Volkswagen Golf, which Musk alluded to at the company’s recent shareholder meeting. Musk’s statement addressed the fact that Tesla “has never made a profit in the almost 15 years” since the company was founded, but highlighted that, along with Ford, it is the only US car company to never have been declared bankrupt.

The special-edition 570GT features a Saddle Tan leather trim throughout the cabin, accented by green leather inserts and contrasting green stitching. Other unique features include a dedication plaque mounted on the centre tunnel, identifying each vehicle as one of six in the collection.The Saddle Tan also extends to the exterior, adorning the pinstripes on the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser, along with a stripe on each door that runs towards the rear from a Union Jack emblem finished in silver-grey. Other special touches include MSO Black exterior components – the front splitter, door handles, side air intakes, side skirts, rear bumper, diffuser and spoiler, that all are usually finished in Dark Palladium or body colour.“Any McLaren is a very special vehicle, but we are also seeing an increasing number of buyers expressing a desire to personalise their cars with additional features and options as well as colour and trim choices outside of the core specification offered,” said Jolyon Nash, executive director of global sales and marketing for McLaren Automotive.
Brabham BT62 video test: Updated! | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG UPDATE: 19/06/18:Brabham’s Australian testing programme has concluded with a series of laps at The Bend, a motorsport venue near Adelaide. The car will now head to Europe, and specifically to Portimao, to begin it’s calibration to the Northern Hemisphere’s circuits. Of the testing so far, Brabham’s Director of Engineering and Technology, Paul Birch, said “Our testing in Australia has proven what the BT62 is capable of in terms of performance, pace and handling – and it’s seriously impressive. As the program advances into Europe, we’ll continue to balance and optimise the car’s set-up and configurations for different driving styles, tracks and conditions." Nothing in the way of new detail then, other than what we can glean from the video of the test released by Brabham. Showing the car lapping in the wet, two things are apparent. One, that it looks fantastic, and two, that it sounds absolutely mega, that 710hp 5.4-litre V8 screaming up to well over 7,000rpm. Hopefully more will become apparent once it reaches European shores, and perhaps there’ll even be a chance for us to have a go ourselves… (Dafydd Wood) ORIGINAL STORY, AS REPORTED 25/05/2018:"In a different league." That's how Brabham describes the BT62. The league it's differentiating itself from? Supercars and track-biased road cars; the fledgling manufacturer says it's better to think of it as an unrestricted GT racer. If that sounds like wishful thinking, then Brabham Automotive's Director of Technology and Engineering, Paul Birch, made another claim to back it up: "To give you an idea of just how fast it is, we eclipsed the official outright lap record at Phillip Island during testing - a record formerly held by an open-wheeled car. We didn't go out to set a time, and it wasn't officially recorded, but it demonstrates the car's potential." Now, anything a manufacturer says about lap times must be taken with a sceptical pinch of salt - and anything unverified by an official stopwatch, even more so - but assuming there's at least a kernel of truth in that statement (and given the lap record at Phillip Island is held by a 20-year-old Formula Holden car, there probably is), the BT62 would appear to be shaping up quite nicely. Certainly, as we covered off a few weeks ago, it has the ingredients (there's a 710hp 5.4-litre V8 under that body; and reportedly over 1,200kg of downforce pinched from the airflow). It would also, from the evidence of the first video, seem to have quite the soundtrack, too. Which is nice. What else have we learnt? Well, the first deposits have been taken, and production has begun at Brabham Automotive's advanced manufacturing facility in Adelaide. The company remains committed to delivering the first examples to customers later this year. We look forward to seeing the car on a European track. With a video data logger attached. #Brabham #BT62 #video #test #Updated #Carscom #Car #Reviews #car3x
Exhibition of the week: Pagani Huayra 'Tempesta' | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG In a bizarre way, it's hard not to feel a little bit sorry for the Pagani Huayra. Here is a 730hp Italian V12 supercar, launched from what has very quickly become one of Italy's most famous manufacturers, and yet it's never quite become as revered as many expected. While launched to considerable acclaim - you can see Chris Harris's verdict here - circumstances rather conspired against the Huayra. It was launched in 2012, just a few months before the hybrid Holy Trinity of LaFerrari, 918 and P1 changed the hypercar game. Not only that, but it was one of the first fast cars of recent years to endure the agonising switch from high-revving, atmospheric engine to a turbocharged replacement. Powerful and monstrously torquey though its twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 was, for emotional appeal it was always going to struggle against the Zonda's operatic 7.3. Ah yes, the Zonda. Like the elder sibling that won't relinquish the limelight, Pagani's insistence on creating yet more one-off Zondas once the Huayra was in production did rather undermine the newer car. While you can't deny Pagani the opportunity to make money, that attention remained on the Zonda for so long looked odd from the outside. Then there was the Huayra BC, arguably the making of the Huayra. Named after Horacio Pagani's mentor Benny Caiola, the BC was lighter, faster and more focused than the standard car. It also looked truly wild, which always helps. This Huayra isn't a BC; rather it's a Tempesta, a car which took the lessons learnt from the BC to create a handling pack for the base car. As such it featured exactly the same underbody as the special edition cars, four-way adjustable Ohlins dampers, forged aluminium wheels, and a titanium exhaust. Moreover it was developed by Dallara, no strangers to setting up very fast Italian things on four wheels. Consider it like the HGTE package that Ferrari offers for its supercars, introducing a sharpness and attitude that wasn't in the standard car, and that's what the Tempesta represents. Except, this being Pagani, the handling pack was taken to the extreme, costing €160,000 alone. Still, if you're buying a car as expensive as a Huayra, what's a mere 160k between friends? This right-hand drive Tempesta was registered last year and has covered just 700 miles. Combine that with its rarity - just 100 'standard' Huayras have been made (including Tempestas), alongside a few more Roadsters and BCs - and that'll help explain the £2.2m asking price. Yep, two million. And a bit. Which opens up a few other options, to be honest... If you want a Pagani, there will be all manner of Zondas available at this money, and each member of the Holy Trinity is priced at £2m (or thereabouts). That's before you consider any of the hypercar icons, too, like this Ferrari F50 currently for sale at £2,295,000. That said, it's hardly like the Huayra is going to be your only supercar if there's £2m spare for a car purchase.

McLaren tease 570s 'Longtail': Update!| Cars.com | Review Car
Update, 13.06.18 Well, there you go. Short of doing away with the cover altogether and having the exhaust manifold open to the heavens, it hardly seems like McLaren could have been more direct with the LT's new top-exit tailpipes. You can draw your own conclusions about the styling implications, but we rather like the result, which are pleasingly reminiscent of Harrier jet nozzles. Or something. Certainly they're going to be on the warm side with the engine running. Just visible south of them is...
