Rise of the Turbos

With the recent Paris Motor Show underway, there are dozens of reveals that would have any motor junkie reeling with joy.

The improvements in technology have allowed turbochargers to become more efficient while simultaneously becoming less costly. In fact, within the next 5 years, nearly 40% of vehicles in America are expected to be turbocharged.
