How come he gets a Euro-Civic diesel and we don't?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

I really really really really wanted this version of the Civic to be sold in the USA.

Not Fair !!!!

Wayne doesn't own or lease that diesel Civic, he just got the opportunity to do a short test drive in it.

I think he gets it for a week. One of the side benefits of owning a website that gets lots of media coverage. (You listening, Matt? )

Matt, you should totally try to borrow a Euro-Civic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my friends is an auto journalist, and he gets to test drive a 400 HP Lexus LS Hybrid :

http://www.leftlanenews.com/lexus-de...ls-600h-l.html
Quote:
Lexus has unveiled the LS600h L ? a performance hybrid version of its new flagship sedan ? at the 2006 New York International Auto Show. Scheduled to arrive in Spring 2007, it will be the world's first vehicle of any class or category to feature a full hybrid V8 powertrain. The LS 600h will combine an all-new five-litre V8 gas engine with combined massive, high-output electric motors and a newly designed large-capacity battery pack. It will deliver a peak, combined output of more than 430 horsepower. As a SULEV-rated (Super Low Emissions) vehicle, LS600h is estimated to produce just 20 per cent of the smog-forming emissions of a conventional five-litre V8. Power is delivered to the wheels via a 2-stange ECVT transmission. It also has the first LED front headlights of any production vehicle.
Obviously, I wouldn't want one, but it's nice to see the technology in action.

Hmmmm, math time :

20% of a V8 => 20% * 8 => 0.2 * 8 = 1.6 => V1.6
20% of a 5.0 liter => 1.0 liter.

Sooooooo, it's emissions are the same as a "2 cylinder 1.0 liter" car.

Gotta work on that MPG, though,
