  1. What is the difference between a muffler and an exhaust system? Both component are mounted beneath the car's chassis and serve as a conduit for the exhaust gases to leave. However, the muffler is only one component of a car’s exhaust system. There are several components in this system that work together to efficiently remove gases from an engine's cylinder. The catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, and muffler are among these components. First, exhaust gases is emitted through the exhaust manifold. It has several chambers connecting to the exhaust system’s cylinder exhaust ports. These chambers are all connected to one point of exit, from which the exhaust will be transmitted to a catalytic converter. Catalytic converters are often installed in cars’ exhaust system for environmental benefits. It cleans exhaust gases, converting highly hazardous gases like carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons to less damaging carbon dioxide. The muffler is the final component of the car’s exhaust system. Overall, the exhaust system is designed to make the car more cost-effective and ecologically benign.
  2. Since its introduction in 1998, Lexus’s IS model has been continually evolving with several noticeable refinements, yet still retains premium characteristics from the first model. The first-generation IS model already received positive feedback from buyers and presses, making it reputable in the design department. In 1998, this model was chosen for Japan's Car of the Year, an outstanding step to leave an impression in the car market. The executive sedan received a slight redesign five years after its debut. The fog lamps, headlamps, 11-spoke wheel design, and taillights were all refined, while the interior remained largely the same. In 2005, the second-generation Lexus IS has an overall sharper and more angular exterior design. It kept the executive sedan elements from the previous generation while adding key athletic features that helped set it apart to this day. In 2006, The performance-oriented IS F made its debut, with a further emphasis on its nameplate's sporty nature. The inline-six engines were phased out during this generation, and V6 engines were introduced in their place. The third-generation Lexus IS entering the car market in 2013, showing what Lexus' greatest designers can do. It features the brand's spindle grille in the front, as well as crisp character lines all around the car. The current IS F Sport model is equipped with a V6 engine that is capable of producing 300 horsepower. On the other hand, the IS 300h has a 2.5-liter hybrid engine that works in tandem with Lexus' E-CVT so as to maximize its efficiency.
  3. Automobili Lamborghini has finally debuted the new version of its famous Countach after teasing its return. The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 was created to pay homage to the famous design of the RWD mid-engine sports vehicle while also embracing 21st-century style.
