German publication, Bild am Sonntag has stated that Audi had been using transmission-linked defeat devices to give love carbon dioxide readings while undergoing testing. According to CARB, the software forces the transmission to go into a “low performance” mode that does not deactivate until the wheel is turned more than fifteen degrees (normal driving). No word on legal actions, but we will be sure to keep you posted.

We all love the Dodge Hellcats, but we also understand that they are 707-hp monsters that can get away from you in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, three teens from Missouri didn’t have the same God-given common sense that we were all blessed with. According to police reports, the three teens stole two Dodge Challenger Hellcats from a dealership and proceeded to wreck them almost instantaneously. Essentially, these clowns only got to the cowbell part of Lowrider before wrecking. Pro tip: don’t steal cars.
