1974. godina. Čvrsto držim ručicu punog gasa i naginjem motor što više mogu. Znam da svaki zavoj treba savladati još brže i još niže. Moj sportski moped od 50 kubika radi perfektno. Sve sam mu promijenio, tu je prošireni ispuh s rezonantnim auspuhom, prošireni usis s većim sportskim karburatorom, spuštena glava motora, bolje karike, prilagođeni prijenos, fastback, hebli, gume... sve. Tu sam i ja, klinac od 14 godina koji voli miris Castrola, stazu i uživa u lijepom danu na Mičevcu. Otpuštanje gasa, naginjanje, pun gas na izlazu, hajdemo još jednom, neumorno, mogao bih tako cijeli dan...

The road to electromobility leads across a technological bridge on which the best attributes of two technologies are combined into a new, environmentally friendly drive concept. It is of course much too early to bid farewell to the internal combustion engine. But in the future, this well-proven drive technology of more than 130 years standing will have to share the space under the bonnet with one or more electric motors if the emissions limits prescribed by the EU Commission are to be complied with. Mercedes-Benz already reacted in 2014 by bringing the first model with plug-in hybrid technology to market. In 2015 this was followed by two further models, and by 2017 nine more models are to be available with this drive system.

Jaguar F-Pace u Hrvatskoj starta cijenom od 400 000 kuna za osnovni model sa 180 konjskih snaga, ručnim mjenjačem i pogonom na stražnje kotače. 3.0 diesel motor s 300 PS, automatskim mjenjačem, pogonom na sva četiri kotača i punom opremom, podupla cijenu pa i više od toga. Ima li razloga da čovjek posegne tako duboko u džep, iskreno nema.
40 years ago, Audi presented the first five-cylinder gasoline engine in the second-generation Audi 100. Enhancements and new developments followed, with turbocharging, emissions control and four-valve technology, rally engines and five-cylinder diesel units.
