Cristela Alfonzo's life inspired her Cars 3 character

  Cristela Alfonzo's life inspired her Cars 3 character Cristela Alfonzo had admitted some of her own personal life was added to her character Cruz Ramirez in the latest Pixar movie 'Cars 3'.Cristela Alonzo says some of her own life was used for her character in 'Cars 3'.

It’s still an impressive car though, if a flawed one . It may be about to die , but tech-heads will still be impressed. ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE: It has had a long innings and its timeline is bewildering, but if you buy the right edition the Vantage can still make sense.

Gasoline cars are still the preferred choice when it comes to buying a car . Which brings us to the point whether an interested car buyer should opt for gasoline or diesel. A diesel engine will simply refuse to die down.

Spare a thought for all of these cars that hundreds or even thousands of engineers toiled over for months on end to develop – none of which will live beyond 2017.

Dozens killed in Portuguese forest fires

  Dozens killed in Portuguese forest fires Dozens of people have died in a number of forest fires in central Portugal, as temperatures pass 40C.  The Portuguese government says the number of dead is now 39, with many dying in their cars as flames swept over a road.Interior Ministry official Jorge Gomes said 16 people died in their cars between the towns of Figueiro dos Vinhos and Castanheira de Pera and three people died from smoke inhalation in Figueiro dos Vinhos.Prime Minister Antonio Costa said: "Unfortunately this seems to be the greatest tragedy we have seen in recent years in terms of forest fires."The number of fatalities could still rise.

Ahh, the hot hatch. That most humble of performance icons, so incredibly loved by the petrol head that its mad to think it took the major car makers nearly 70 years before realising that a big engine in a small car was a recipe for success.

Some are on sale in South Africa already, while others are due soon. Which one should you buy ? It won Best Premium Hatchback in the inaugural Cars .co.za Consumer Awards. Is The Golf Segment Dying ? Hannes Oosthuizen.

Some have gone already – but should you shed a tear? In some cases you should, and dealers will be trying to shift them too, so it’s a great time to pick up a bargain.

Bird: We need to be aiming for the top five .
Sam Bird says that the team need to aim to finish in the top five tomorrow after falling down the grid during the first of two races in Berlin. The 30-year-old qualified fifth for the race, but fell down the order during the race. He finished in seventh after Sebastien Buemi was disqualified later due to illegal tyre pressures. “It would be tough,” Bird commented after the race, “but we need to be aiming for the top five tomorrow because we could have been in the top five today. “Tomorrow’s going to be even tougher. Qualifying’s going to be tougher but then the race is longer.” The first race in the double-header weekend at Berlin lasted for 44 laps. Tomorrow the 20 drivers will be racing for 46 laps. Bird said that DS Virgin Racing seem to be not as strong with saving energy in their cars compared to the likes of Renault e.dams and Mahindra. “It was difficult. It looks like the Mahindras and the two Renault powertrain cars and the Abt cars are maybe a little bit better than us at the moment. So that makes tomorrow quite difficult.” Bird’s team-mate Jose Maria Lopez finished in fourth place after qualifying in second. The Argentine was beaten to pole position by Lucas di Grassi by 0.001s.
