F1 Tyres Breaking The Compounds
As it is with any vehicle be it on-road or off-road, the tyres are one of the most important element of an Formula 1 vehicle. The tyres are the only medium of contact between the car and the road, making it extremely crucial to use high-performance tyres to be safe and simultaneously go faster with confidence. However, a good set of tyres should also be able to withstand immense braking pressure. Well, the Formula 1 tyres and road tyres only have one thing in common, the round shape. Other than
Mazzanti Evantra
Not many of us must have heard about Mazzanti Automobili based out of Italy. However, back in 2013, they had launched a high-performance coupe, christened the Evantara.

Just a few metres away is the Swiss border from the Stelvio Pass, just for your information. The Stelv
Lamborghini Countach
It was a good day, the year was 1971 and the date was the 11th of March. The city of Geneva was busy and was all set to raise the curtains at the Geneva Motor Show. The Lamborghini booth was buzzing, after all the most anticipated supercar was about to be revealed. Ferrari’s arch-rival was coming up with a supercar for the generations and once the veil was lifted, everyone in the room dropped their jaws to the floor. The Lamborghini Countach was presented to the public. What a spectacle that mus
History of Fiat - The most distinguished brand in Automotive History
Fiat has always been a niche brand and especially in Italy, it has been at the forefront of the Italian automobile industry. In 1899, Società Anonima Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino was founded in Turin, with Giovanni Agnelli as one of the Board of Directors. However, the innovative vision and a grand scheme for the company, saw Agnelli being appointed as the Managing Director of Fiat in 1902.

Push Button vs Key
Those were the good old days when you had a key that did most of the stuff in your car. Well, by most of the stuff, I mean, opening the door and then actually turning on the car. Wait, that sounded wrong, but you get it. Slowly, the car key came with buttons and you used those to lock and unlock the doors. But then, as we got lazier, the key turned into a key fob and the slot where the key used to go in, became a button. A Start/Stop button. Today, you even have wristbands to open your can and y

Is this a world we want our children to grow up in? As a true car enthusiast will say, manual cars are more engaging and who even drives an automatic car? And why the torture? But traffic is increasing. Cars are being reprimanded of free spaces to stretch their legs, every country doesn’t have an Autobahn and hence automatics have started to make s
