A pure masterpiece in design and a supercar that has been taking it to the extreme. “Sesto Elemento” means “the six element” and refers to the atomic number if carbon, due to the significant amount of carbon in the production of this vehicle.
When it comes to the design the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is truly one of its kind. The all wheel drive, 6-speed semi automatic paddle shift is paired with a 5.2 litre V10 engine generating 570 horsepower @ 8000 rpm and about 400 ft/lbs of torque @ 6500 rpm. What makes this car truly unique is the chassis, body, driveshaft and suspension components are all made of carbon fiber reducing the overall weight to a mere 999 kilograms (2,202 lbs), a comparable weight to subcompact cars. This gives the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento a very strong power to weight ratio. Lamborghini claims that the Lamborghini Elemento has an acceleration time of 0-62 mph (0-100km/h) in just 2.5 seconds.
As for the interior, Lamborghini kept it simple with this one. It has only the basic comforts such as air-car stereo and air-conditioning. There are no actual seats

This is one of those questions that seems like a no-brainer until you try to tackle it. Why do people fall in love with their mode of transportation? The simple answer is that many people do not. While many claim to be enthusiasts and purchase their brand new Porsche as evidence, only a select few use excuses to hit the open road. These people are the true lovers and their lives would simply not be the same without cars.
Part of the reason we love cars is likely due to the fact that our parents, brothers, or friends loved cars and influenced us to take part in the culture. Similar to a dad bringing his kids to a baseball game and they in turn fall in love with the game, cars are typically something we learn to love over time. For me, it was riding in my dad’s 1997 Mustang Cobra convertible that forever turned me into a car lover. The burble and crackling of the 4 valve V8 making all the right noises has quite the impression on a 5-year-old.
Speed bumps are important as they help you to slow down thus preventing you from making an accident. While they are important, they can destroy your car if you don’t tackle them properly.
How bumps can destroy your car
Speed bumps can destroy different parts of your car. The most affected areas are shocks. These are units that absorb road imperfections. While the units are designed to take the pressure, they have their limit. If you hit bumps at high speeds you can cause them to bend in many different ways thus forcing you to buy new ones.
Bumps can also destroy your steering where they can break the steering rack mounts, throw the wheels out of alignment or even cause leaks in the power steering. Car experts have also shown that bumps can also damage your car tires. Tires are designed to touch the ground using only the flat surface. When you don’t tackle the bumps properly you force the sides of the tires to scrape the ground thus damaging them.
Guide on how to properly tackle bumps
The key to avoiding damaging your car is slowing down as you come across
Check the treads:
Car tyres wear down from time to time. Every tyre has its own lifetime and you need to make sure that tyre you are using is in its optimum life. When that time exceeds, the chance of getting trapped into a road accident increases. It is like the sole of a shoe! You can’t use the shoe once the sole has eroded. So you need to take a note of the lifetime of the tyre you are using for your case. There is a tread depth mark available in every country. You need to meet the representative from tyre companies of your locality in order to know the actual tyre tread depth mark of your country and try to follow that.
Keep your tyres align:
Suppose one of your tyres has worn down and you need to replace it with someone else. If the new tyre is not in sync with the rest three, the tyres will wear down at different times! So you need to make sure that tyres are aligned and at least you can curb down the chance of accident while driving on the roads!

Machines and vehicles depend on proper lubrication so that friction forces are reduced. If friction forces are not reduced, the machine or vehicle’s life cycle will be decreased. As such, if you want to get the most out of your equipment or vehicles, it is essential that their roller bearings are lubricated regularly and correctly.
Today, motor experts are recommending machine and vehicle owners to do or carry out optimized lubrication. Optimized lubrication means applying new grease on bearings when needed and using just the right amount and type of grease to return friction levels to an acceptable level.
To carry out optimized lubrication properly, here are some useful tips you should follow:
Identify when you need to lubricate the bearings.
It can be tricky to know how often to apply grease. Keep in mind that lubricating bearings, when they don’t need grease, will cause them to malfunction and get damaged, too.
The frequency of lubrication can be influenced by various factors, including heat and humidity, the dimensions of the ball bearings or roller bearings, frequency of use and duration of running time when in use, and type of grease used.
Are you getting ready to buy your next car? If so, you’ve probably started to search through lots at local dealerships.

Here are a few things to consider that might save you time, money, and a whole lot of stress.
Buying a previously owned vehicle is becoming much more common because many automobiles last much longer than previous models. Advancements in auto technology and improved maintenance practices have extended the lifespan of most cars to upwards of 200,000 miles. An option already on the market could still operate like new for many for miles and road trips.
Most importantly, used cars typically represent a great value. Even just a basic web search will reveal how much you can save for a vehicle that’s just a few years old. For example, a new option that retails for around $30,000 can be acquired a few years later for $20,000 or less. This choice will often be in nearly new condition but have a cheaper price tag because of depreciation. If

Always work with licensed mechanics who are capable of uploading the details of the services supplied, right to your vehicle history report. This way, each time a new treatment is performed, this will become a part of the report. When you get ready to sell, prospective buyers can order and review this document and can see that you have made every effort to take good care of

One of the car elements that are highly prone to wear and tear are wheel bearings. Automotive experts always say that quick detection, repair, and replacement of bad bearings can immediately protect the proper working order of your vehicle and save you from more and costlier maintenance.
Detecting worn-out wheel bearings is not a difficult task. There are tell-tale signs that you should be on the look-out for so that you can have the necessary repair or replacement carried out immediately.
These signs include the following:
Noise coming from the wheel or tire area of the moving vehicle. This is the most common and easily identifiable sign that your automotive bearings are already worn-out. This noise is usually mistaken as engine noise. However, when you listen closely, you will likely hear some grinding or grating noise that gets louder as the vehicle accelerates. In general, wheel bearings are not known for wearing out that frequently. As such, this noise is typically suspected to be something else and the problem overlooked. A more careful check-up of your car done by your mechanic can help you pinpoint this problem easier.
