Swimming Fiat 500 (Jetskis) at Surf Championships in California

Swimming Fiat 500 Jetskis in America
Swimming Fiat 500 Jetskis in America

Hey Guys

"Fiat 500 .. Motorboat ..., ah."
Earlier today when I was walking I checked my Mails and just read them quickly, I read something about a Fiat 500 and a Motorboat. Well, it's maybe something like the Cigarette Racing and Mercedes-Benz AMG - a Technology/Design-Cooperation.

When I just came home I read the E-Mail again, on my Notebook this time, and I couldn't belive my eyes when I checked out the Pictures .. "no way, no way, no way" everytime I've seen another Picture. But what are these SWIMMING FIAT 500 all about??!?!?


Well, in America there is currently the U.S. Surfing Champrionship taking place in Sunny California. And as the Fiat 500 is currently the best selling car in its class they thought that they have to do something special - and I bet most of the viewers couldnt belive their eyes when they first saw the swimming Fiat 500 on the edge of the bay in Huntington Beach. But no, its no animation or hollogramm, the Fiat 500 are REALLY swimming.

The clue about the fast driving 500's is that they are modified jetskis! Four in total were blowing the viewers minds away - and mine. Besides two normal Fiat 500 there is also a Fiat 500C and a Fiat 500C Abarth 500. A Fiat 500L will be added to the water-fleet soon. Fiat says in the Press Release that "Visitors to the surfing championships have witnessed a spectacular promotion of Fiat North America".

Unfortunately, a serial production of the Fiat 500 jetskis is not planned...

How would you react if such a Fiat is overtaking you on a lake?

TEST: Skoda Octavia RS 2.0 TDI Hatchback 2013

Skoda Octavia RS Hatchback in Rallye Green
Skoda Octavia RS Hatchback in Rallye Green

Hey Guys

Test Driving the 2013 Skoda Octavia RS is ... fun! And Surprising! To know why, keep on reading my Test Drive Review of the Skoda Octavia RS 2.0 TDI Hatchback. A Review of the Octavia RS Combi follows soon & do you already know my Review of the vRS Mega Man-Pram?

Already at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK Skoda unveiled the "fastest Skoda ever" for the first time. The fastest model of an entire Company, that's a statement!

Clever Sportsman

What's so Special?


As mentioned before, the Skoda Octavia RS is THE fastest Skoda ever! With either 184 hp (2.0 TDI ) or up to 220 hp (2.0 TSI) the RS deserves it's name! Making the 0 – 100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 6.8 seconds with the TSI it's now 6 seconds faster than it's predecessor and the maximum speed is at 248 km/h (154 mph). The Combi / Estate will be available all over Europe from August 2013, the Sedan / Hatchback follows in October – but both can be already ordered.


What's to Like?


What I really liked while driving the Octavia RS Hatchback was, that it's super comfortable. Even with 200 km/h (124 mph) on the Autobahn, the maximum speed I was able to do, It felt like I was driving just something like 140 km/h (87 mph). My biggest Surprise during the Test Drive, the fuel consumption was down at 6,6 litres per 100 km/h, with the manual transmission. So I needed just 3 litres on my 50 km in the inner city traffic and high-speed on the Autobahn – well done, Skoda! (To be honest, I expected much much more...)

Besides the „unter the hood“-features I really like the new & fancy Skoda Exterior Design-Language. Can you remember when Skoda looked nothing than boring and unobtrusively? These Days are definitely over!
A characteristic Skoda Grille, distinctive air intakes with honeycomb structure, standard bi-xenon headlights, an lowered Body, the shorter Overhang createy optical sportiness as well as the black diffusor on the back in combination with trapezodial chrome exhaust pipes and LED-headlamps.
The Colors are something I really enjoy about Skoda in general as well. Years ago there were Cars in so so many colors driving around our Streets but nowadays, all the Cars are blue, silver, white or black. But Skoda's? Silver Grey, Rallye Green, Blue, Yellow, Red, … Yes, Skoda is not just 'Simply Clever' but brings also color and joy into our daily lives.

Inside the leather-textile seats not just look but also feel comfortable, the steering wheel suits my hands and I can reach all the buttons on it easily without leaving my eyes from the Street. In general the Interior definitel feels like a better value for money. Did you know that you can even have heated seats in the back? In the back!


What's to Dislike?


The enormous SPORTY-Feeling is missing! But hey, the RS Hatchback, as well as the RS Combi / Estate, are no pure Sportscars, they are normal ones with a little extra. As long as you have the Sound Generator on (automatically in Sports Mode) you have a nice engine Sound, but after turning it out – and switching to Eco Mode – you hear completely nothing from the engine and/or the exhaust. What's a bit sad is that just one of the two trapezodial chrome exhaust pipes is used – the left one. (check out THIS Picture).

In general, the Touchscreen-Display is really nice and the menu is easy to understand buuut when I was on the passenger seat and wanted to change some Sound-Settings I often mistyped and landed in wrong menus and I once even miss-tapped the back-Button. But as the voice control is working very well at least the navigation shouldn't be a problem and for other settings you should have a minute to park on the side and do it not while driving.

Apropos Navigation, what was really confusing to my is that the Navigation always mentions the intermediate destinations. First it says that we reach our destination soon and then later that it's just an (automatic) intermediate destination. Unfortunately I haven't had enough time to check the settings and maybe remove a hook from a certain setting but after the first „You reach your Destination soon“ I did what written above – mistyped through the Menu to find out that there were some Kilometres left to our final final destination.


For who is it?


I would place the RS Hatchback not entirely in the "family"-level but pretty close. The "RS" is in general for everyone who wants a bit more: a bit more sound, a bit more sporty exterior, a bit faster accelerations and a bit more € or $ or .. to pay. Based on my crazy Brain I would create the typical Skoda Octavia RS Hatchback driver like this: Aged around 30, wife or Girlfriend and one to two Childs. Every morning he drives his Kid(s) to Kindergarten or School and afterwards to work. In the evening hours he loves to take the Country Roads and some extra kilometres/miles back to their House in the outer circles of a bigger Town to enjoy the Sporty Mode and dynamic driving. On the Weekends his wife/Girlfriend takes the Car out for Shopping and on Sunday they use to go to Theme Parks or doing a Picnic next to a Lake or in a Field in the middle of nowhere.


Make sure to read my Review of the Octavia RS Combi / Estate as well as I seperated my Like's and Dislike's on both Reviews, as the Cars are almost identical!
In an another following Post I'll answer all the Questions you asked me via Facebook and E-Mail. If you have any more, just comment below and I'll find an answer!

2015 Ford Mustang is the sexiest Car on Earth!

2015 Ford Mustang
2015 Ford Mustang

Hey Guys
For me the 2015 Ford Mustang will be THE hottest Car on the Planet in 2014 (at it's debut) and beyond! With it's aggressive Front and the mean-looking Headlights the left lane on the Autobahn will be yours, definitely!

The former Inventor of the "Pony Cars" has now, finally, turned into a wild stallion. The only thing I'm asking for, dear Ford Motor Company, please place a nice and big engine under the hood so the outcome in the back will sound sweet and adequate as well as the possibility for nice 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) sprints.

2014 Kia Soul European Debut at Frankfurt Motor Show 2013

red 2014 Kia Soul
2014 Kia Soul

Hey Guys

The all-new 2014 Kia Soul urban crossover will make its European debut at the 65th Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Frankfurt on 10 September, before going on sale across Europe early next year.

Inspired by the 2012 Kia Track’ster concept, the 2014 Soul introduces a thoroughly fresh, more grown-up appearance, whilst still instantly recognisable as a Soul.

The new vehicle – shown in European specification for the first time – echoes the outgoing model’s upright stance, squared shoulders, wraparound greenhouse, high-mounted tail lights and confidence-inspiring SUV ride height. The new Soul also features an all-new interior, with higher quality materials and a more driver-focused design.

When the car goes on sale in 2014, buyers will also be able to choose between three different roof colours – black, white and red – as well as up to 11 exterior paint finishes.

The pair of new Kia Souls displayed on the Kia stand at IAA Frankfurt will also exhibit a new SUV Styling Pack, featuring piano black bumper trim, side skirts, wheel arches and a black painted roof. The new range of Soul accessory kits are designed to enable owners to fully enjoy and exploit the versatility of this unique compact SUV.

The biggest technical change for the 2014 Soul is the adoption of an all-new platform, based on that of the latest Kia cee’d. The result is greatly improved ride and handling compared with the outgoing model, as well as more mature and refined on-road behaviour. The second-generation Soul will also be the best in its class for refinement, a result of the car’s upgraded suspension, 29 per cent stiffer bodyshell and comprehensive soundproofing. Interior noise levels are reduced by approximately three decibels.

The 2014 Kia Soul will feature premium features (depending on model), including: front LED daytime running lights and rear LED ‘halo’ lights, xenon headlights, keyless entry and push-button engine start, automatic climate control, cruise control, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, heated front and rear seats, panoramic glass sunroof and heated and electrically folding exterior mirrors.

Having the Windows down and the volume up with "weird" Music, the smell of morning dew plays around my nose while my eyes are more and more awake. My foot pushes the pedal further and further down, always in search of the perfect photo location and the beautiful morning light. Endless Roads, the wind ruffled my hair and this kind of "Freedom"-Feeling which totally removes the chains from the mind. After about one hour and after a short sleep in the back I finally found the perfect Location, somewhere in the cross of the Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and France.. Bonjour CLA!

Hey Guys
Thanks to the Internet I sometimes feel like I have been to so many Places as I see so many Pictures and Videos that I really start to think that I already went there in Person. Last weekend I had such a Déjà vu when I went to the Nurburgring as I was able to join the Warm-Up Lap of the BMW Ring-Taxi around the Nordschleife. Seriously, who doesn't know the most famous gas station at Döttinger Höhe with their Webcam or Pictures of the thousands of Cars waiting to do a Lap on the Nordschleife?!

Outside the little House where you can book your Taxi-Drives around the Nordschleife there was already a - on the first look - inconspicuous Car waiting: a white BMW 5-Series. Wait, this is the Car? Okay, it was a M5 F10 with 560 hp and a maximum torque of 680 Newton meters 1500-5750 rpm. Well, these numbers are impressive .. but it's still a "family Car"?!

How the future Audi RS3 Sedan might look like

Audi RS3 Sedan
Audi RS3 Sedan
Hey Guys

On autofilou.at I found some Renderings of an Audi RS3 Sedan this morning. But the Question is, does the already sporty-looking Audi A3 Sedan / Audi S3 Sedan really need an RS-version?

In my Opinion this Rendering bei Theophilius Chin looks like a mixture of the Audi A1 Clubsport and, for sure, a brave A3 Sedan. The Rims look anyway very sexy but the rear spoiler, well the rear spoiler seems a bit miss-placed but as Spoilers are normally used for a reason it hopefully fulfills the purpose.
