A fast Mini?</strong><br />Not just any fast Mini, no siree. This is the new John Cooper Works Mini Cooper, the beefier, more fear-inducing version of the Mini Cooper S.</p> <p><strong>How fast can it go?</strong><br />Mini claims the manual version will propel you to 100kph in 6.3 seconds, with a top speed of 247kph. The automatic will have the same 247kph top speed, but hits 100kph in 6.1 seconds. Pretty nippy then.</p> <p><strong>How does it manage that, then?</strong><br />More grunt beneath the bonnet, naturally. Performance differences include a revised 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine petrol engine. The B48 to all you BMW engine boffs. It also weighs 100kg less than the previous John Cooper Works, has specific suspension tuning and gets a Brembo brake system.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>But how will people know that I&#39;m driving a special Mini?</strong><br />Apart from the fact that you&#39;ll be hurtling away from traffic lights like a greased whippet? There are some design tweaks that show off more agressive styling; for starters, there&#39;s a new, custom designed front bumper with larger air ducts, new LED headlights, a wider spoiler on the roof, a deeper rear bumper and a pair of centrally mounted chromed tail pipes. And that&#39;s not all.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>You mean there&#39;s more?</strong><br />Yup. The new John Cooper Works gets upgraded front seats with integrated headrests, a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and a new gear stick. And who doesn&#39;t like a new gear stick? There was a resounding &#39;ooooh&#39; when we laid eyes upon it.</p> <p><strong>I&#39;m sold. When can I get one?</strong><br />The new Mini John Cooper Works is expected to go on sale in April 2015 for &pound;22,460 (RM122,685). It&#39;s getting a full public debut at the Detroit motor show in early January.&nbsp;</p> <p>[Sources:&nbsp;<a href="http://luxurylaunches.com/transport/2015-mini-john-cooper-works-unveiled-its-the-most-powerful-mini-ever.php">Luxury Launches</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/detroit-motor-show/new-mini-john-cooper-works-unveiled">Autocar</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The view most people will have of the Mini John Cooper Works" alt="The Mini John Cooper Works is the most powerful production Mini ever" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/MiniCooperRear_0.jpg?1418694028" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Racy seating" alt="The Mini John Cooper Works is the most powerful production Mini ever" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/MiniCooperSeats_0.jpg?1418694028" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="A shapely gearknob" alt="The Mini John Cooper Works is the most powerful production Mini ever" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/MiniCooperGearStick_0.jpg?1418694028" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/mini-john-cooper-works-most-powerful-production-mini-ever/news#comments Cars Hot Stuff Mon, 15 Dec 2014 11:54:50 +0000 Elissa Loi 1455458 at http://www.stuff.tv The Full Moon motorbike is barking mad http://www.stuff.tv/my/do-you-fancy-dancing-devil-pale-moonlight/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Akrapovic&#039;s new bike concept crams a 1524cc engine beneath its crazy curves </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Probably not the best choice for first-time riders" alt="Akrapovic Full Moon concept" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/full-moon.jpg?1418606722" /> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>What. Is. That?</strong><br />We know it&#39;s shocking but take a deep breath. This is the Full Moon concept from Akrapovic, a Slovenian exhaust manufacturer that is more accustomed to fashioning very loud tailpipes for superbikes and supercars. The bike is part of an annual tradition where the crazy Slovenians create an equally mad custom machine to show off at the bat-plop-bonkers Bad Salzuflen Custombike Show in Germany.</p> <p><strong>Does it actually work?</strong><br />Yes it does, because underneath that shapely rump is 1524cc S&amp;S Knucklehead engine. There are also two custom-made Akrapovic exhaust pipes that run the entire length of the sleek machine, essentially making the majority of the motorcycle a giant exhaust pipe.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Surely the rider would get a very hot bum...</strong><br />Luckily the designers have thought of that and covered the toasty tailpipes in plenty of hand-formed sheet metal, so the rider&#39;s posterior is shielded from a roasting. Other notable features include that 30-inch composite front wheel, which requires specialist automated steering that&#39;s hidden beneath the bodywork to ensure it actually goes around corners.</p> <p><strong>How long did it take to make?</strong><br />Over 800 man-hours went into this creation, which includes lots of time-consuming metalwork and engineering solutions to combat the issue of that gigantic wheel. The Akrapovic chaps even had to fashion a bespoke front brake disc to cope with the wheel&#39;s enormous circumference.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Akrapovic Full Moon concept" alt="Baby got back" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Full_Moon_1_Large-1c65a467-ee1f-4777-8f59-698f46fd7971.JPG?1418606722" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Akrapovic Full Moon concept" alt="Footplates not conducive to cornering" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Full_Moon_2_Large-efa78e4a-4df2-4a48-a9cc-1d4fdcc7357a.JPG?1418606722" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Akrapovic Full Moon concept" alt="It&#039;s all about the tailpipes" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Full_Moon_3_Large-cf62fbfe-05ce-439d-8315-fc4b852bad10.JPG?1418606718" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>What is it like to ride?</strong><br />We are guessing terrible.

But if this is a sly dig at the unfortunate name, the answer is no. The XX bit is a designation Ferrari reserves for extreme models, like the beefed-up Enzo-based FXX of 2005. The unfortunate &#39;K&#39; part refers to the Kinetic Energy Recovery System that helps the latest model achieve warp speeds.</p> <p><strong>Just how fast is this thing?</strong><br />The &#39;standard&#39; LaFerrari pumps out a mind-altering 938bhp&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but the FXXK squeezes even more power from the ferocious 6.3-litre V12 engine, so it now produces 848bhp, while an electric motor chips in an additional 187bhp. Say hello to 1035bhp, over 664lb ft torque and a claimed 0-62mph acceleration figure of around the 2.5 second mark.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Surely that sort of power is completely wasted on public roads...</strong><br />This is one Ferrari you won&#39;t see blasting up and down the King&#39;s Road; many of its major components have been overhauled for track use only. To get all geeky on you, the intakes have been redesigned, camshafts overhauled and most importantly, any shred of exhaust muffler has been deleted. That means it will be earth-shatteringly loud and an MOT tester&#39;s worst nightmare.</p> <p><strong>Why has someone stolen part of the rear spoiler?</strong><br />That must be the new aero package you&#39;re referring to. The things on the back are GT-inspired wings that work in conjunction with the retractable spoiler to either add downforce through corners and under braking or make the car slipperier on the straights. There is also a glut of carbon fibre diffusers, wings and lips that make the FXXK practically impossible to park in your local superstore.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Don&#039;t worry, the rear spoiler is meant to be like that" alt="Ferrari FXXK" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Ferrari-FXX_K_2015_1600x1200_wallpaper_05.jpg?1417918239" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Has the on-board tech also been tweaked?</strong><br />Yes: engineers have overhauled the hybrid KERS system and changed the selectable driving modes to reflect its racing status. Qualify gives the driver access to unlimited power for a limited number of laps, Long Run eases off a bit and gives consistent performance over longer periods, Manual Boost gives instant maximum torque delivery for overtaking manoeuvres and Fast Charge rapidly charges the on-board lithium-ion batteries. It&#39;s clever stuff; but don&#39;t expect Apple CarPlay to be mated to a fancy touchscreen inside, it&#39;s all performance fettling knobs and dials.</p> <p><strong>I might win the National Lottery on Saturday, how do I buy one?</strong><br />Erm, you don&#39;t. Ferrari is yet to announce pricing or the number of FXXKs it plans to gift the world. Rumour has it, all models are already accounted for and they cost the well-heeled customers &pound;2m (RM11m) a pop. You might want to buy an extra lottery ticket.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/ferrari-reveals-1021bhp-laferrari-fxx-k-updated" target="_blank">Autocar</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/aston-martin/james-bonds-new-motor-aston-martin-db10/news" target="_blank">James Bond&#39;s new motor is the Aston Martin DB10</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1201" height="900" title="The interior is stripped back for race use only " alt="Ferrari FXXK" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Ferrari-FXX_K_2015_1600x1200_wallpaper_06.jpg?1417918239" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/holy-fxxk-ferraris-latest-1036bhp-monster-too-powerful-road/news#comments Cars Hot Stuff Fri, 05 Dec 2014 17:18:52 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1454818 at http://www.stuff.tv Mio wearable translates cycle spin stats for your smartphone http://www.stuff.tv/my/mio/mio-wearable-translates-spin-stats-your-smartphone/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You put the ANT+ in, it puts the Bluetooth out.

It&#39;s a replica of a real fossil, one of a Tyrannosaur named (by its discoverers) Stan, that was unearthed in South Dakota&#39;s Black Hills in 1992. What made Stan special was that his fossil is perhaps the most complete ever found, with 190 bones found near intact with no crushing or distortion. Silicone moulds were used that captured every detail of the resin casts of Stan&#39;s bones - you can even see puncture wounds in his skull and see he had a broken neck and ribs. Poor dude.</p> <p><strong>How big is, err, the model?</strong><br />Think 40 feet or 12 metres.

The Quadrofoil has four of these little blighters (hence the name), which makes it look a bit like one of those weird War of the Worlds aliens when it&#39;s out of the water but ensures that it gracefully breezes across your local lagoon when the freaky stalks are submerged.</p> <p><strong>You said it&#39;s battery-powered&nbsp;</strong>&ndash;<strong>&nbsp;but aren&#39;t electricity and water bitter enemies?&nbsp;</strong><br />Yes they are, but the Quadrofoil&#39;s advanced lithium-ion battery packs and 3.7kW motor are securely contained in a watertight housing. Other notable safety features include shock-absorbing hydrofoil blades and an airtight &#39;top module&#39; that means the passenger seating area floats even if you take out all four hydrofoils by running over shallow rocks.

There&#39;s even space for a passenger to come along for the ride in a neat staggered seating system that allows for a full 360-degree view of the sights.</p> <p><strong>But isn&#39;t there something cool about blapping around the coast on a noisy Jet Ski?</strong><br />Petrol is expensive; oil and noise aren&#39;t very good for anything living in the water and some of the world&#39;s most beautiful locations have banned most motorboats and personal watercraft for these very reasons. The Quadrofoil skirts this legislation and avoids the &#39;hooligan&#39; reputation. </p> <p>However, it will set you back nearly &pound;12,000 (RM63,000) for the standard version or a whopping &pound;17,300 (RM90,826) for the more powerful 5.5kW electric motor. Despite a rapid two-hour charge time and estimated hourly running costs of around RM2, it&#39;s still a lot more expensive than a Jet Ski.

There&rsquo;s a foot pedal for the bass drum and the option to add another for hi-hat action.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Oh, come on.

These last something like 20 times longer than DLP bulbs and give off very little heat, so don&rsquo;t require a noisy cooling fan.</p> <p>Oh, and it has an optional USB-chargeable battery, so you can take it pretty much anywhere and print. You could even take it on a camping weekend and, er, we dunno, use it to print out fishhooks or something.

So you&rsquo;re not going to be 3D printing a football on this thing (don&rsquo;t 3D print a football anyway &ndash; it&rsquo;d be really hard on your toes).</p> <p>On the plus side, it does have an extremely high print resolution of 328 microns on its Z axis (a lot higher than most other 3D printers) meaning it can create incredibly smooth prints where the layers of resin are barely noticeable.</p> <p><strong>So, let&rsquo;s talk about this affordability</strong><br />Well here&rsquo;s an area in which the iBox Nano really appeals. If you back its&nbsp;<a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/826799607/ibox-nano-worlds-smallest-least-expensive-3d-print" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a>&nbsp;campaign to the tune of US$229 (RM980) or more, you will receive one as a reward (you&rsquo;ll also need to shell out US$50 for shipping, mind). It comes with 95ml of resin in one of three colours. The downside is that these rewards won&rsquo;t be available until April 2015. Still, plenty of time to save up for more resin.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/826799607/ibox-nano-worlds-smallest-least-expensive-3d-print" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a>]</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/hot-stuff">SEE MORE HOT STUFF HERE</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="iBox Nano" alt="iBox Nano" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/ibox-nano-black.jpg?1414459804" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/ibox-nano-world-s-smallest-cheapest-3d-resin-printer/news#comments 3D printers Hot Stuff Mon, 27 Oct 2014 16:19:06 +0000 Elissa Loi 1451515 at http://www.stuff.tv
