I'd have concern about the effect such large, powerful magnetic fields would have on their surroundings. For example - safe to be around if you have a pacemaker? Will it erase a hard drive? etc. etc....

Depends on what you mean. When you say "technology" do you mean software? Or do you mean technologies such as D4S, active torque vectoring, rear wheel steering, etc, that are mechanical in nature?

These clutches aren't subject to nearly the same abuse as what's in a manual transmission, or even a DCT in normal conditions (meaning not using launch control). The clutch is engaging two parts that...

I think the issue is calling it a GS F is a black eye for the F brand. It should have been an GS500 F Sport, like the CTS V-Sport uses the ATS-V's engine, so would the GS500 F Sport use the RC-F's...

You can't look at it as if Lexus failed to achieve a solid performance out of the car. The car performs exactly like they wanted it to. The suspension is a little softer, but this lets it absorbs all...

I have A/S3 on my S4... in Houston. Cold weather here means a cold front came through and dropped a lot of rain, so when it's cold it's nearly always wet, which is not an ideal situation for summer...

Every car sold in the U.S. is required to take E10. There is no advantage to ethanol free gas in regards to the "health" of your vehicle, except for the station owner who can make a lot of money off...

Driving over mileage is not a big deal. That's some of the cheapest mileage you'll pay for the car. And if you trade it in before lease end for a car of the same make, any dealer will waive the...

All the paper stats don't translate to an enjoyable driving experience. Case in point, the Viper should be a phenomenal ride, but it's an extremely challenging car to drive. The RC-F pursued the...

I would expect a lot of leases for a car like this, many more than the IS-F. Shouldn't be too difficult to pick up one lightly used if you keep your eyes open.

The problem is that most people evaluate this as whether or not they'd like to own the car and drive it, rather than appreciating it as a piece of art.
