THE Quadrifoglio Verde badge first appeared as a lucky charm on Alfa Romeo racing cars in the early 1920s, heralding a period of sustained success in the motorsport arena. This sporty little number has curves in all the right places, from its rounded nose, through impressively bulging wheel arches along the flanks, to a squat and powerful-looking rear end that is finished off with a sports bumper, spoiler and twin... Contrasting colours on the wing mirrors and door handles, darkened glass, bespoke 18-inch alloys and red Brembo brake calipers all add to the hot-hatch look, which was given extra impact on the car I drove by the optional (£800) moody Magnesio... Slipping into the cabin, the interior design also very much reflects this range-topper's performance credentials with aluminium pedals, a leather-bound, racing-style steering wheel and leather and alcantara upholstery with integrated logos. For that proper racing car feel, you could go for the impressively supportive, body-hugging carbon fibre-backed bucket seats my car also boasted - but it'll cost you an extra £2,000 if you do. Of course, looks are only part of the package, with...
…where T is time, and V is voltage, as read by the ADC on the PIC24KV32KA304 (time is directly related to distance). Time measurement is accomplished using a module on the MCU called the Charge-Time Measurement Unit (CTMU), which is configured to convert the Stop Pulse to a voltage.
Despite the popularity of utility and truck-based vehicles in Australia, we’ve historically missed out on the heavy hitters in the pick-up truck range that buyers in the US can access so easily. That model was a high-priced, old-tech, poorly specified stripper that was built down to a price in Brazil. Even priced up near $90,000 for a dual-cab, it still sold like hotcakes… Where low volume importers have brought vehicles in to convert over the past decade or so, they have usually been prohibitively expensive. Thanks to Gympie-based Performax International, the days of Australians missing out on Ford ’s finest – and largest – utility vehicles in any significant number are over. Somewhat ironically, I’ve spent the past week-and-a-half behind the wheel of a Ford Ranger XLT as part of our upcoming towing comparison test. But if the current crop of dual-cabs available aren’t quite big enough, there’s the Ford F-250 Lariat: a realistic option for buyers needing extra space or serious towing ability. All F-250 models sold by Performax will be dual-cab, style-side models, but it plans to add variations to the range starting with the extra-cab, which offers less back seat space but a longer tray.
