The Audi introduced the facelifted S5 Coupe, that obtained a design transformation and significantly, a new 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 328bhp (333PS) that will changed the last model’s 349bhp (354PS) 4.0-liter V8. It’s been approximately 2 years because Senner Tuning introduced its model from the Audi S5 Coupe called the “White Beast”. In touch with Audi’s present portfolio, Senner Tuning provides introduced a new package for that 2012 S5 Coupe. The German company provides rubbed down the S5′s 3.0 V6 TFSI, lifting output through 328bhp (333PS) and 440Nm (324 lb-ft) to 371bhp (377PS) and 500Nm (369 lb-ft) via a number of improvements which include a ECU optimization, a sports air filter and a customized exhaust system.
Utilizing a 5th era Ford Mustang through 2005 as its canvas, approximately of talking, Felge came up with that cosmetics package bundle which packages things through numerous stores including the US$10,500 Cervini-Bodykit freely influenced through the Eleanor which performed within the 2000 successful movie, Gone in 60 Seconds. The melody is actually curved away having a KW sports interruption having an Hydraulic Lift System (HLS) Kit and also beefier Brembo brakes all around. The vehicle trips upon Felge’s personal Hause Schmidt Revolution 20-inch blend wheels covered about Dunlop auto tires dimension 265/35R20 within the front axle and also 305/30R20 in the back, that will cost one more US$5,900.
The main design changes made by the team led by Marco Tencone include a revised front end, with the headlights with DRL Led technology and a new bumper with wrapping air intakes, which optimize the front air flows for both engine and brake cooling. At the rear of the new taillights have a more aggressive darker tone. Inside, the front and rear seats were completely redesigned, while the new steering wheel has a more sporty and muscular look. The 4.7 liter V8 engine has been tuned and now delivers an increased output of 460 hp.The new Maserati GranTurismo Sport, set to debut at the Geneva Show, will feature increased performances and a slight aesthetic restyling.
Recently previewed with the name F620 GT, the F12berlinetta features a new V12 engine and advanced architecture, aerodynamics, components and electronic controls, which make it the most powerful Ferrari road car ever produced, with an output of 740 hp, a 0-100 km/h time of 3.1 seconds, a 0-200 km/h sprint in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of over 340 km/h. The F12berlinetta was designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre in collaboration with Pininfarina. The car successfully combines uncompromising aerodynamics with harmonious proportions, which interpret the typical elements of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars. Thanks to careful aerodynamic studies, the downforce has been increased by 76 per cent (123 kg at 200 km/h) while drag has been significantly reduced – the Cd is 0.299. The dimensions are relatively compact, with a length of 4618 mm, a width of 1942 mm and a height of 1273 mm, while the total dry weight is just 1,520 kg, achieved through an all-aluminum construction.
Last year, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Jaguar E-type, the Swiss firm Classic Factory unveiled its Growler concept car. Intended as a modern version of the classic sports car, the concept was so well received that a new car-making company, Lyonheart Cars Ltd. has been opened in Coventry, U.K., for the purpose of turning out a limited run of the production version of the Growler – the Lyonheart K. The Jaguar E-type is such a classic, such a mind-numbingly beautiful car, some might argue that it was responsible for the decline of the British motor car industry. The E-type was one of the all-time classic cars. Brought into the world at a time when European car makers were putting out futuristic designs and the Americans were making their cars look like spaceships, the E-type hit exactly the right mix of the old and the new with its monocoque body, engine bonnet that seemed to go on forever and passenger cabin that looked as if it was hanging on for dear life. There was such an air of pure art to it that even the engine was beautiful, and it was no slouch when you pressed the starter. It’s independent suspension is legendary and it could do 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 7.1 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph (242 km/h). Unlike many high-performance cars, you could drive it at 10 mph without feeling like it was trying to rattle your fillings out of your teeth. In 14 years of production 70,000 cars were produced, which is remarkable when you consider how notoriously unreliable it was.
The Tokyo Motor Show, we’re greeted with this: the Subaru BRZ GT300 race car. Being a GT300 contender, the BRZ’s output will be limited to 300 horsepower and judging by the "Proud of Boxer" stickers flanking the front and rear, it’s sure to be packing some manner of flat four, likely displacing around two liters.Designed to compete in the GT300 class of Japan’s SuperGT touring car series, the BRZ is set to replace the Legacy B4 that’s competed in the series for the last two years.
Aston Martin builds what are widely regarded as some of the most beautiful road cars in the world and the GT3 is proof that the company’s race cars don’t lose those aesthetic attributes.Starting this month, Aston Martin and the company’s racing division begin track test of its newest GT3 entry, the V12 Vantage GT3. First appeared in April of this year, the V12 Vantage GT3 will go on to replace the Aston Martin DBRS9, which first entered the GT3 racing circuit back in 2006. Sharing the same bonded aluminum chassis and 6.0-litre V12 engine as its road-going cousin, engineers tuned the V12 Vantage into a race-ready behemoth with experience gained in the past 6 years. The car will be ready for the GT3 season of 2012.
The 2013 Boss also offers a unique functional design feature in the grille with removable covers where fog lamps would be.The powerful Boss engine yields 444 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque, while still offering a smooth idle and low-end torque for comfortable around-town driving. A race-inspired clutch with upgraded friction materials transmits power, while a short-throw, close-ratio six-speed manual handles gear change duties.
Significant aerodynamic work was done on the new Shelby GT500 to ensure the car has proper downforce for optimum performance at all speeds. Engineers were able to determine how to harness the air that was moving around and through the car to improve the cooling system, maximize downforce and minimize drag.The 5.8-liter V8 aluminum-block engine produces 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world. The 3,850-pound car also stays exempt from the gas-guzzler tax. A larger, more-efficient supercharger flowing more air through the engine is key to helping produce the massive 650 horsepower. The new TVS series 2300 creates 2.3 liters of displacement and is a unique design to the 5.8-liter engine.
