Besides the problem of space for cars moving on the road, space for a parked vehicle is a greater problem considering that private vehicles remain parked for most of their time.
Parking became a problem and cities were looking for a solution to park as many cars as possible on as little space as possible.
Today let’s explore the “World’s Largest Parking Lots“
Canada’s West Edmonton Mall (20,000 spaces)
This huge shopping complex will be able to satisfy your every need, including supplying you with a parking space in its huge parking lot; even more interesting factor is that it has made it into the Guinness Book of World records.
Disney World, Magic Kingdom and Epcot Lots (11,000 + 12,000 spaces)
The Epcot parking structure is the larger of the two, spreading over 160 acres, or about 7 million square feet whichever is easier for your mind to grasp. Maybe comparing it to 140 NFL football fields will help you understand its vastness even better.
Seattle – Tacoma International Airport (13,000 spaces)
This is North America’s Largest Parking Structure under one roof!!
Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, McNamara Terminal (11,500 Spaces)
This enormous parking structure is the largest of its kind to have ever been completed at one time.
Universal Studios (10,200 spaces)
Another entertainment facility with a massive parking lot is Universal studios. It has a twin tower parking structure, with the South Facility being only slightly larger than the other one.
Today let’s look at few Car memes that brings smiles on your face:-)

See what a Charger can do….
Every MAN would have done this!!!
End of the Journey would not be safe though.. LOL
Paris banned old cars from its streets on Friday to reduce air pollution. Environmentalists hope this will also drive dirty vehicles from the centers of other European cities.
Data published by France’s public health agency this month showed air pollution kills 48,000 people each year in France, some 400,000 in Europe and around 3.7 million worldwide.
From Monday to Friday, any car registered before Jan. 1, 1997, will be barred from the city’s streets.
However, near the National Assembly and Champs Elysees avenue, some owners protested by parking their vehicles to denounce a ban they say will hurt poor people most and slash the resale value of their vehicles.
Marc Martin, who uses his ageing Peugeot van to deliver picture frames to clients says, “I drive 50 km per week, I don’t have the means to change vans so I will continue using it, I’ll get fined every week and there you go,” He also says, “And if it goes too far, I’ll close my business, people will lose their jobs, that’s it. What can I say, not much. This law is pathetic.”
The ban could be extended in 2020 to all combustion-engine cars more than nine years old, says Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
Motorists who flout the ban face fines of 35 euros ($39) after an initial tolerance period, an amount that is set to jump at the end of the year.
According to a driver defense group, 40 million d’Automobilistes, more than half-a-million vehicle owners in and around Paris will be hit by this ban and they are going to take legal action to seek financial compensation for drops in the value of now-banned vehicles.
Norway is planning to ban petrol and diesel-fuelled vehicles from 2025 and several Europian cities are testing various anti-pollution measures based on tolls for city center access or selective car bans during surges in pollution levels.
Semi trucks are extremely important for the world’s economy, they transport a significant portion of the world’s cargo — and that’s leading to a rash of innovation in the space that mirrors what’s happening in the automotive world. Automakers are working on a different system like Self-driving trucks, electric powertrains etc.
This time, Siemens has come up with a new technology called eHighway. The system is being tested on a two-kilometer stretch of the E16 highway north of Stockholm, Sweden in partnership with Volkswagen-owned Scania. The trial will use two diesel hybrid vehicles manufactured by Scania and adapted, in collaboration with Siemens, to operate under the catenary system.
The trial aims to create a knowledge base on whether the Siemens eHighway system is suitable for future long-term commercial use and further deployment.
“By far the greatest part of the goods transported in Sweden goes on the road, but only a limited part of the goods can be moved to other traffic types. That is why we must free the trucks from their dependence on fossil fuels so that they can be of use also in the future. Electric roads offer this possibility and are an excellent complement to the transport system,” commented Anders Berndtsson, chief strategist at the Swedish Transport Administration.
The sensor system enables a rod carrying current called pantograph to connect and disconnect from the overhead line at speeds of up to 90km/h. From the overhead catenary wires, the system draws power when the truck start the drive. Another great thing is that the truck travel with zero local emissions. Thanks to the hybrid system, operation outside of the contact line is also possible, thus maintaining the flexibility of conventional trucks.
Another eHighway demonstration project is being developed by Siemens in California. This Test will be conducted throughout 2017 to see how different truck configurations interact with the eHighway infrastructure in the vicinity of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is a hypercar from Mazzanti. Mazzanti is already an established boutique supercar builder. With this Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli, they promise that it will have 1000hp of total output and all of that power will come from a heavily turbocharged V8 powerplant.
15 years ago Mazzanti started out in business and their new monstrous Millecavalli is based on a standard Evantra model. The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is hand-built to order and production limited to five examples a year. The standard car has 715hp on tap and is capable of going from 0-100km/h in 3 seconds.
However, with the help of incredible twin turbochargers, the Millecavalli will, according to company founder Luca Mazzanti, manage the 0-100km/h dash in just 2.7 seconds and will hit a top speed of 400km/h, that’s 250mph and into Bugatti — never mind Ferrari LaFerrari — territory.
“In order to create this extreme Hypercar, we applied technologies coming from motorsport that no one else has ever used on a street-legal car before,” said Luca Mazzanti.
These include larger inlets for cooling and a roof-mounted airscoop plus active aerodynamics to direct air over the rear wing.
In theory, it is not that difficult for a car to travel well in excess of 200mph, but getting a car to travel that fast while remaining stable and still feeling like a quality, premium product is no simple feat.
“When the performance is so important, nothing is left to chance, but each element is the result of the meticulous work of people with great expertise and a true passion,” said Mazzanti.
The company has revealed nothing regarding price tag of this hypercar but it is expected to cost over €1 million making it a direct competitor with Koenigsegg and Pagani. This car will be limited to just 25 completely hand-built examples.
