One Lap of the Web: Cop-car guide, an inside look at Morgan Motors and the best hybrid carsWed, 10 Jul 2013
We spend a lot of time on the Internet -- pretty much whenever we're not driving, writing about or working on cars. Since there's more out there than we'd ever be able to cover, here's our daily digest of car stuff on the Web you may not otherwise have heard about.
-- Just when we think everything is going smoothly when we're driving, those flashing lights pull up behind us. Stay ahead of the game and check out this guide from Jalopnik covering the headlight outlines of the most popular cop cars on the road.
-- Former movie director and avid car collector James Glickenhaus sheds light on his new one-off supercar, dubbed the SCG 003. The first new car from his own brand will feature a car simpler than the supercars coming out on the road today (no electrical motors or hybrid powertrain). With a target weight of 1,600 pounds and 500 hp, this car is sure to be a riot. Check out more details here at Motor Authority.
-- Hybrid cars are (sort of) all the rage these days, thanks to increasing gas prices, stricter CAFE regulations and a host of other issues. If a hybrid is in your future plans, check out Left Lane News' top-10 hybrid cars on the market today.
-- Morgan Motor Co. is different from most manufacturers today; they still use wood for frames, incorporate classic designs and instill traditional methods into building their cars. Take a peek into their operations below and see how they roll.
