Audi A8 W12

Posted on Sunday, April 18, 2010

Audi A8LAudi only in the beginning of this year has begun sale of new generation of model А8, and today there were first photos of extended "eight", and equipped already motor W12 which gives out 500 h.p. (earlier А8 had at the order only petrol and diesel units in volume of 4,2 l: 373 h.p. and 350 h.p. accordingly). Outwardly Audi A8L not too strongly differs from usual А8 though to notice distinctions it is possible without special pressure. "Long's" main advantages are hidden inside, after all car dimensions are increased by 130 mm. And all additional millimetres have been given rear passengers.

Total length Audi A8L makes 5267 mm. That is "eight" now is the greatest car among «a German three». Certainly, Audi A8L overtakes a Mercedes-Benz of S-class and BMW 7th series only on some millimetres, but for Audi and this advantage was important. Though A8L it is interesting not only the sizes. On the second row of seats in this car the present kingdom of luxury: smart armchairs with possibility of resetting and four programs of massage, 4-zone climate control, supports for feet, the liquid crystal monitor, the huge hatch and many other things (by request it will be possible to equip the car still with a folding little table for work, a refrigerator and other).

Under a car cowl can stand not only shown earlier 4,2-litre V8, but also motor W12 in volume of 6,3 l which gives out 500 h.p. and 625 Nm (the previous version of engine W12 had volume of 6,0 l, and its capacity equaled 450 h.p.). Thus the motor, despite volume increase, at once on 12 % became more economic – now it spends 12 l for each 100 km of a way.

W12 is capable to be dispersed from 0 to 100 km/h for 4,9 sec. only, and the maximum speed by German tradition is limited at level of 250 km/h. Extended А8 with motor W12 will be issued only in an all-wheel drive variant where 60 % of the moment are transferred to a rear axle, and 40 % on a lobby.

Focus RS500Representatives Ford with pride have informed – the most powerful version Focus which is called Focus RS500, already is completely sold. And, admirers "hot" Focus have bought all 500 copies RS500 in 12 hours without knowing even the price for this model. According to representatives Focus, they did not expect so a great interest to Focus 500RS. Dealers have not been advised at all of existence of the given model! As a result between buyers and sellers often there were silly enough conversations – people asked to sell the car about which the dealer knows nothing.

At the moment only in one Great Britain it is accepted an order of 500 demands on Focus RS500. And after all this car was supposed to be sold in all countries of Europe. As a result the quota to Great Britain is limited only by 101 car.

Let's remind that Focus RS500 will be equipped with the 2,5-litre 5-cylinder unit capacity of 350 h.p. (460 Nm). For comparison, "usual" Focus RS has under a cowl the same motor on volume, but capacity of 305 l. Thanks more powerful engine. Focus for can be dispersed to 100 km/h for 5,6 sec (Focus RS carries out the same exercise for 5,9 sec) All Focus RS500 decided to paint exclusively in black matte colour. Thus brake calipers will be red. In interior there will be a special tablet with car number.

Peugeot 508This autumn on a motor show in Paris company Peugeot will present model 508 which will come instead of Peugeot 407 and Peugeot 607. As the sedan will look, we already know – in March in Geneva showed Peugeot 5 Concept. But recently in Internet appears first drawings of the new versatile person which promises to become one of the most beautiful cars of such class in the market. We will notice that new "five" from Peugeot will differ not only impressive dimensions (the sedan has of 4860 mm at length, and the versatile person promises to be even more), but also appearance which will be made in new style of the company. Henceforth at Peugeot any more will not be agape mouths and the huge stretched headlights!

Besides, the information that on new Peugeot 508 installation of the hybrid engine will begin proves to be true. It is a question of installation Hybrid 4 which unites a 163-strong turbodiesel in volume of 2,2 litres and the 50-strong electromotor (it will give the energy to rear wheels that will make the car all-wheel drive). Total capacity of a hybrid will make 200 h.p. - toe-outs in numbers are connected by that capacities in such installation are not summarised directly. It is expected that average fuel consumption at the diesel hybrid versatile person will make only 3,8 l on 100 km of a way.
