All it has allowed to keep weight of the car within 1350 kg.

Ferrari FF

Posted on Saturday, January 22, 2011

ferrari ffFerrari declared about occurrence of a new legend – the Italian company has presented new super car under name Ferrari FF. Letters FF in this case designate not Fantastic Ferrari, but Ferrari Four. Before us all-wheel drive Ferrari car! Also it is the present sensation – before this time all serial Ferrari had a drive gear only on a rear axle. New Ferrari FF will come in the stead big 612 Scaglietti. The length FF makes more than 4,9 m, and in the interior is available four high-grade armchairs, in addition and a luggage compartment here too very decent – a minimum of 450 l and if to combine rear armchairs, also all of 800 l. In movement all-wheel drive Ferrari will be resulted by the 12-cylinder petrol motor in volume of 6,3 l which gives out already 660 h.p. and 683 Nm. For comparison, old 612 Scaglietti had the motor in volume of 5,75 l, and it's capacity made 540 h.p. Agree, not the most bad increase turns out. However, even the 660-strong motor nevertheless won't make Ferrari FF fast and powerful, after all in a stock Italians have model 599 GTO which possesses already 661-strong engine and easier body. As a result at 599 GTO the weight parity to capacity makes 411,8 h.p. on ton, and at FF – 368 h.p.

Together with the engine the 7-step robotized transmission with two clutches will work. And still there should be a system stop start which will allow to save fuel in plugs. However, if the driver doesn't want it to do, stop start can be disconnected easily. Besides, it is not excluded that in the future there will be a charged version of Ferrari FF with system KERS which will accumulate energy received at braking and if necessary to give out, in this case capacity of the motor will grow on 101 h.p.

Features of all-wheel drive transmission don't reveal yet. However already it is now clear that it is a question of system a constant all wheel drive where electronics begins to distribute if necessary the moment between all four wheels. In many respects thanks to all-wheel drive transmission acceleration time will occupy from 0 to 100 km/h only 3,7 sec, and the maximum speed of the car is 335 km/h.

Aston Martin Cygnet will cost about 36 000 euros. It's of course much more expensive than Toyota iQ.

Why Aston Martin made a decision to release such car? British explain that on their statistiсs every third owner of traditional Aston Martin has in the garage a midget car like Mini or Smart for every day trips in a city. Such clients, probably, will prefer the tiny machine of favourite mark. Other explanation is covered that European norms manufacturers are obliged to make so that harmful blowouts of all lineup on the average must kept within certain norms. It is possible to smother engines of sport cars, or possible to add a midget car in a ruler. Aston Martin has preferred the second. However, if so expensive machines are on sale in circulation about 4 000 copies in a year, as it is planned, the company also won't bad earn.

After investments into expansion of manufacture Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera prepares to make 19 similar cars (at the moment Italians finish building of the third versatile person which will be soon transferred to the customer). For the first time the three-door versatile person constructed on base Bentley Continental GTC Speed, has been shown last year on a showroom in Geneva. And this car has caused certain interest from potential buyers. And thanks not only to unusual appearance. The car has been made very qualitatively and didn't make impression of any fake. Generally, similar body type is called shooting brake, and at one time it was experimented by some European firms. Mainly English. In particular it is possible to remember Aston Martin V8 Vantage Shooting Brake 1999. But, despite all attempts to give it a start in life, shooting brake are remained exotic.

Unusual body, the extended aluminum doors, slightly altered interior and the appearance of luggage compartment in volume of 400/1200 liters, in all the rest, this car is similar to Bentley Continental GTC Speed.

New Chrysler 300

Posted on Friday, January 14, 2011

new chrysler 300The luxury sedan Chrysler 300C, issued since 2005, became favourite object for tuning studios and the frequent hero rapper clips. The novelty presented on the Detroit showroom (now without a letter "C") obviously applies for the big intelligence. On a photo above — a fresh sedan, below — former model. Completely new interior looks a little elaborate because of a chrome and tree abundance, but in comparison with former generation it is a great advance. The angular interior of old generation was created, apparently, by the same designers that make cabins of pickups. Now available all elements of beautiful life: armchairs with heating and ventilation, the touch screen and many other things.

In Chrysler company have seriously reflected about profitability of a large sedan: the problem — to make so, that the big and powerful model consumed less than 8 l/100 km in the commixed cycle. Now on change to 3,5-liter motor developing 249 h.p., has come 3,6-liter, giving out 292 forces. It isn't entered yet in demanded restrictions of fuel consumption. But soon Americans promise to solve this problem: already on the way the new, 8-speed box (instead of 6-step), and with it necessary profitability will be reached.

Capacity of the 5,7-liter motor is raised from 340 to 363 forces. Here already about any impressing indicators of the depressed consumption of fuel speech doesn't go. Other motors on Chrysler 300 won't put first, but, possibly, Americans won't refuse tradition to create super-power sedans with a prefix SRT8 in the name. The former generation developed 431 force and typed hundred for 5 sec.

Fiat 500 Mopar

Posted on Thursday, January 13, 2011

fiat 500 moparThe oldest American manufacturer of spare parts and accessories company Mopar, based in 1937, already many long years is some kind of the court supplier of Chrysler concern. And after Chrysler became the strategic partner of Fiat, Mopar began to work and with Italian cars. So, in Detroit Mopar has presented improved version of the kid Fiat 500, the limited party which will be soon offered to American buyers. Americans didn't begin to be engaged in radical bleeding of the Italian hatchback and were limited only to exterior correction. A car body was painted in a black dull paint, on a cowl, on a roof and on the rear door have started up a double blue strip, on the machine have put in black light-alloy disks and have generously added chrome – cases of mirrors, a fringing of headlights of a natural light, a gasoline tank cover, a branch pipe of an exhaust system and door handles now chromeplated.

Interior have tightened a black skin and have decorated with blue inserts, plus to it the check point and handbrake hand lever have finished with carbon. It has turned out stylishly and, the main thing, cheaply.

Certainly, to name it high-grade tuning not possible, but designers Mopar didn't put before themselves a problem to transform Fiat 500 into a hot hatchback. Their main purpose – to force the American public to pay attention to this car. And they for certain will achieve this purpose, Fiat 500 looks fresh.
