Ford GT, The fastest Car in the World, beats Ferrari in Speed

Gone are the days when fastest cars used to be Ferrari. With Ford’s new supercar Ford GT having a top speed of 246 mph, 2017 Ford GT has become the fastest car in the world putting behind the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren. The Ford GT, with the racing version, has already beaten Ferrari and Porsche at the track of Le Mans. Mr. Raj Nair, the Executive Vice President, Global Product Development and Chief Technical Officer of Ford, specially mentioned about the speed of the supercar, saying, “The Ford GT has racing in his blood.”

Ford GT: Engine and Specification

The supercar is equipped with twin turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine which is a part of Ford’s EcoBoost family of engines. The engine produces a mammoth 647 HP at 6250 rpm and 550 lb-ft of torque at 5900 rpm. That’s real fast! With the racing version of the engine, at Calabogie Motorsports Park in Canada, Ford has beaten both McLaren 675LT and Ferrari 458 Speciale. Ford GT’s timing was 2 min 9.8 sec whereas McLaren’s time was 2 min 10.8 sec and Ferrari’s was 2 min 12.9 sec.

Mr. Dave Pericak, the Global Director of Ford, said, “Our expectation has always been that the EcoBoost V6 would perform exceptionally well in the Ford GT –- both regarding power as well as aerodynamic efficiency. We are extremely pleased with how it performs, both on the track and on the road.”

The new version of GT has gone through a drastic change in the engine than its previous version. The previous GT was powered by 5.4-liter V8 engine, producing 550 bhp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Although with this high powered engine, the official released EPA of the new GT shows that it is even more frugal in fuel efficiency compare to its V8 version predecessor.

The seats are fixed, and the steering column and pedal box adjust according to driver’s size. It makes sure that the weight distribution does not vary with the change of driver.

The Fast and the Furious 8: Cara Delevinge and Ruby Rose to Join Hands with Cipher

The curiosity buds of every viewer got tickled to a larger extent right after the makers of the action franchise, The Fast and the Furious announced that the eight installment of the series will actually come into existence. The exhilaration level spiraled even more when the fans got to know that the upcoming entry is named as The Fate of the Furious. And its now time to get thrilled once again as The Fast and the Furious 8 will be released in the nearby single screens and multiplexes on the 14th of April. It is expected that more than half of theaters will get booked one day before the release as the fans are excessively hyped with the upcoming movie. People are expected to go head over heels for Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel once again while some are just waiting to watch each and every fight and action sequence which are obviously going soar the potency and depth of the plot. Therefore, witnessing the scenarios as well the happenings of the forthcoming movie of the franchise on the 75mm screen is something very interesting. As far as the earnings of the eight installment is concerned, the movie is obviously going to amass an enormous amount and there is no doubt in it at all. The theaters are going to be packed up and some may not get tickets on the weekends if they end up booking it late. Therefore, the moviegoers must book their tickets one day before the release of the action film itself. Nevertheless, several people got lucky a few days back as they got chance to watch The Fate of the Furious beforehand only and everyone of them have only spoken positive about the plot. And this is another hint that the movie will be gaining a mammoth amount at the global box office.

However, it doesn’t seem to be a impossible for a franchise which is known as the biggest one under Universal Studio and another reason is the immense success of each and every entry. But we wonder how much exactly the movie is going to earn as we predict that The Fast and the Furious 8 might even become the highest grossing film of this year. And might even cross the records of other Hollywood movies which have performed immensely well in the past.

Talking about the story, a spell will be created by Cipher whose character is going to be depicted by the celebrated Charlize Theron, and on the other hand, we may also end up witnessing Ruby Rose and Cara Delevinge shaking hands with Cipher in order to support her in whatever she does. Cipher is cruel, ruthless and won’t spare anyone and she will eventually lure Dom and will influence him to an extent where he will end up backstabbing the people who mean a lot to him.

However, The Fast and the Furious 8 is surely going to deliver a thrilling and a nail-biting plot.

Although many people push their car batteries until they finally die on them, but that should never be the practice. A car’s battery has a specific lifetime like anything else on this planet, and every car owner needs to know how to run the life-span assessments on a car’s battery. From a car is started to it is put into the parking lot after a busy day, a car battery goes through countless charging and discharging sessions eventually making the battery wear out. The best car battery care tips are here, to guide a car owner through the essential battery maintenance tips.

Be a Little Proactive with your Car

A lot of people just tend to start a car and drive it all year long and never pop the hood by themselves. Sure, the service centers are all there to provide all the essential services but there’s no regret looking under the hood yourself, is there? Keep a timetable of regular battery maintenance and check the liquid levels and connectors of your battery according to that. Especially when the weather is extreme, regular checkup of battery is more necessary.

Annual Test of your Car Battery

The car battery technology has moved a long way. There isn’t much necessity for regular official maintenance of sealed lead maintenance free acid batteries that’s bought within the past few years. But for safety measure, you should still have the battery checked once per year even if everything seems alright. A car service center can disconnect and reconnect a battery properly and get things restored in proper order, in case you don’t want to do the job by yourself.

Make sure the Battery Matches your Requirements

Batteries aren’t smartphones and there isn’t a lot of specifications the owners need to care about. However, a replacement battery should properly fit the battery space allocated inside a car’s hood. A smaller battery that does not fit inside the battery housing might produce trouble with the connection and the terminal. The terminals should be properly aligned with your car’s connectors. These never usually cause an issue because everything’s aligned according to universal standards, but you should still take a closer look.

Get a Brand New Battery, Not Refurbished

When replacing a battery, always get a brand new unit. Refurbished units may be available with the car service centers for a cheaper deal but that’s a waste of money as you would need to replace that battery within few months, and you could be deserted in the middle of nowhere if the battery unexpectedly dies on you. Also, don’t buy a battery that’s more than 6 months old. Every battery has some sort of codes to define its age like A for January and 6 for 2016; etc.

Be Friendly to the Nature

Recycle your old battery with a dealership so that you don’t harm the nature. A lot of battery stores would offer you a discount if you return the old battery to them while buying the new one.

Conclusion

Chances are, the best car batteries won’t even need this much attention. But don’t let that fact make you any careless. Check out our buying guide of best car wax.

France vs. Racism: Accusations and Logic

France finally declared their 23 man squad for UEFA Euro Cup 2016 amidst a lot of hubbub. French coach, Didier Deshamps made one of the most balanced and powerful teams ever possible in the history of the nation. However he had to make a few very difficult choices when it came to choosing the most deserving players. Deshamps left out Benzema from the final list. This sparked a lot of controversy which was spearheaded by some of the most famous personalities of the nation.

EuroFrance_2233366b

Befuddling Accusations

Jamel Debbouze is a well known stand-up comedian and actor who is currently responsible to rekindling the controversy regarding taints of racism in the team selection process. He is of Franco-Moroccan origin and he lamented on television saying, “None of our representatives” have been chosen for the main French team. This followed a much debated accusation brought on by Eric Cantona. Cantona is a former Manchester United and France striker who accused Deshamps of excluding Karim Benzema and Hatem ben Afra. do not forget to check France VS Switzerland Live Streaming.

Why are They Nothing Less than Ridiculous?

These accusations were quite baffling as the current French team is one of the most multi-racial team ever possible. And as far the accusation for not including anyone from North African origins, Deshamps selected Adil Rami. Rami is a talented central defender of Moroccan origin, born and brought up in Corsica. He was added to the 23-man squad evidently due to the injuries sustained by other players.

Why was Benzema Excluded?

As far as Benzema is concerned, he has been entangled in some legal issues which include blackmailing his French teammate. It is evident from player performance that if he had not been busy with his legal problems he would have been the first choice for Deshamps’ 23-man squad. On the other hand, Arfa was never a sure pick due to his inability to perform constantly. He is quite an unstable player with flares of brilliance. He was always included in the larger training squad but when it came to the final 23 he did not have sufficient consistency to play with the big guns.

The Harsh Truth

A former professional coach from France confirmed, “Race is always a very sensitive issue. Even if there were not North African players in the main team it wouldn’t be Deshamps’ fault. Benzema would have definitely made the cut if he had not been tangled in legal outcomes of his actions.” It is worth mentioning that, the original squad indeed did not feature any players of Algerian, Moroccan or Tunisian origin. However the statistics, health conditions, legal issues and current squad analysis shows that it was in no way a conscious decision. This has not dissuaded either Cantona or Debbouze from making direct accusations against Deshamps for bringing in racial factors as far as the selection for the main team was concerned. do no forget to check Euro Cup 2016 Schedule.
