The best part is the re-writing of history.
Makes it sound like GM et al are coming up with lots of innovations.
Honda has had VTEC for over 10 years !!
Renault has had electro-pneumatic valve train in it's test engines for almost the same time !!
Direct injection was Mistubishi a few years back- not quite sure precely when.
Just LOVE the way it's all written as if GM and Ford and small US companies are 'innovating' :) Sorry guys, nice try :)

Like the way they dismiss the diesel engine, as having already made it's big jump forward by using turbo's and multivalves. Of course these things have never been used in gasoline cars isn't it?
