Avengers Join Forces With Audi!

The Avengers Are Nothing Without An Audi!

Avengers Join Forces With Audi!

We might think of Marvel’s Avengers as the complete team of superheroes, but it seems that there is another member of the team that has so far gone without any acknowledgement. This video has been created to address this error and yes, that unsung hero of the Avengers is the Audi! Watch the video to see how and where this versatile and sporty car fits in, and then decide for yourself if Audi is the latest member of the Avengers.

The Avengers are back and ready for anything. So is the all-new 2015 Audi TTS. With quattro all-wheel drive, a turbocharged 265-hp TFSI® engine, and high-performance ultra lightweight technology, the TTS has its own superpowers. And it doesn’t hurt that it happens to be pretty easy on the eyes, too.

Ford Speed Limiter!

Ford’s Speed Limiter Means No Speeding Tickets!

Ford Speed Limiter!

There was a time when the only way you would get a speeding ticket was if the Traffic Police were out with speed cameras stopping all vehicles that went over the limit. However, these days it’s different, as technology has taken over and for most drivers the first that you know about it, is couple of weeks later when a fine drops through your letter box. Well it looks like technology could be working in favour of the driver at last as Ford are launching a new Speed Limiter function that means the car sticks the speed limits and therefore the driver will not be fined or get any points on their licence either. The windscreen mounted camera monitors road signs and slows the car down to the current limit.

Once the speed limit increases the driver is able to accelerate up to the next speed limit and so on. This is an amazing idea and it also means that all of those speed cameras dotted around the UK’s road network will one day become obsolete. According to the man that knows Stefan Kappes, active safety supervisor, for Ford of Europe he said that;

Drivers are not always conscious of speeding and sometimes only becoming aware they were going too fast when they receive a fine in the mail or are pulled over by law enforcement. Intelligent Speed Limiter can remove one of the stresses of driving, helping ensure customers remain within the legal speed limit.
