Lamborghini’s New Supercapacitor

With a long history of making waves with its traffic-stopping designs and innovative tech, Lamborghini has unveiled its latest creation, the Sian hybrid supercar! As expected, the Sian hybrid has ditched the traditional battery pack in favor of a supercapacitor to power its electric motor. Hybrids typically use a lithium-ion battery pack to store energy. Then, where applicable, it transfers electrical current to a motor to help the gas-powered engine or take over propulsion entirely.

Importance Of Detailing Your Car

You might have the preconceived notion that car detailing is all about racing stripes and other bright decals and vinyl. When in reality car detailing just means a thorough cleaning of your vehicle from the inside out. When you go to get your car detailed you can choose to have them focus solely on the interior, exterior, or both. You can also choose the level of detailing you want from a quick wax and shine to a more extensive detailing which includes buffing out scratches and other exterior blemishes.

While buffing out blemishes is a bonus at the very least we recommend a basic exterior detailing. This normally includes everything from a wash to applying a sealant. Detailers normally start with a high-powered wash immediately followed by a hand washing with a mild soap. The exterior wash is extremely important since it will remove all of the debris from your car you accumulate from daily driving. Some debris like road salt are abrasive and can cause damage over time. When road salt is left to its own devices it will start to break down the protective barrier on your vehicle and eventually cause paint damage and even rust. Corrosive materials that end build up on your vehicle over time is the biggest reason we recommend getting your vehicle detailed every so often.
