BMW 1-Series Convertible

BMW car Maker has unveiled new sport car modification for BMW 1 Series Convertible with accentuate efficiency and premium quality. The new design of the front fascia includes BMW’s innovative Air Curtain that counters turbulence near the wheel arches and so reduces the aerodynamic resistance of the vehicle.

Mercedes BLK

Mercedes started teasing thinking about developing a Mercedes BLK product back when BMW announced the actual X1 and Audi divulged the Q3 crossover. It was a particular market in which Mercedes couldn’t be competitive in for not enough a vehicle, because the GLK turned out to be recommended, why not fill the void in the fighting market by sliding any model. Mercedes BLK proved to be a model that became the idea very good idea, and will fill a void in the market competition and shift the model underneath. Mercedes BLK constructed on the same MFA architecture (Mercedes Front-wheel drive architecture) because the next era A-Class and B-Class. All of us expect to view a design language inspired through the Concept A-Class revealed earlier this year, however adapted to some production edition model. The interior will combine the latest technologies and will offer you enough space for about five-people. Mercedes BLK Features And Performance Under the hood of Mercedes BLK, expect to see the id

McLaren F1, Super Lightweight Coupe

This is the car that started the exotic supercar business. To be sure, there had been odd exotics, such as the Porsche 959 and the Jaguar XJ220, but it was the sheer brilliance of the McLaren F1 that created a new type of car for road or track. In fact, there were a batch of race cars as well as the 60-odd road cars built and sold for about $1 million each. Ahead of its time in structure, aerodynamics and sheer performance The specification was miles ahead of its time, not just in the amount of power available, but in the advanced body structure and aerodynamics. More than anything, though, this was a car that gained from its racing car heritage, whereas some suffer from it: it is simple, lightweight, extremely efficient, yet easy to drive. Much of the performance advantage comes from the simple, advanced design which made it very light a curb weight of just 2,504 lb (1,137 kg), which is 530 lb less than the Carrera GT, the latest design from Porsche. A huge difference. A top speed of

Porsche 911 Carrera, Supercar Performance All-Round

Porsche do many things so brilliantly that you're impressed as soon as you start asking the new Porsche 911 Carrera to get a move on. In fact, everything looks right as soon as you open the door and slide in. Quality beams at you, but more important on a fast car, once adjusted, everything seems in the right place. So when I got onto my favorite test route, I'm getting the flavour straight away. Ease out of a T-junction, squirt into a tight S-bend, where the road narrows a bit, with walls on each side, another squirt and brake for the the right turn off onto a minor road. Loves tricky bends and short straights It's a tricky bend, more than a right-angle, and is followed by a left-handler. The 911 just sails around without any roll, and soon I'm accelerating hard no I'm not as there's a slow car in the way, and a bend ahead. Check brake, and wait till after the bend, and the road is clear. Floor the throttle; the car we're overtaking seems to stand still as w

Maserati MC12 Versione Corse

A semi-racing car, the Maserati MC12 Versione Corse joins the band of truly exotic cars, as only 12 or so will be built. The car is based on the racing version of the MC12 the GT1 which won the FIA GT1 championships in 2005 and 2006. But this is a very high-powered car, although not up to the power output of the Ferrari FXX, Koenigsegg CCX. The Enzo-based 6.0 liter engine is tuned to develop 755 bhp, which will make the car mega-quick. To meet the GT1 regulations, the MC12 GT1 is detuned to 600 bhp, so this is a rare case of the private owner getting more power than the works team. This is a sort of trackday special, for the man or woman who has everything! Evidently, it does not meet the regulations that would allow it to be driven on the road, and there is no class of racing for which it is suitable, nor has Maserati announced any series of meetings for the car. Although the Ferrari FXX is in a similar situation, Ferrari has arranged a series of events for owners. Maserati V-12 engin

Bentley Continental Supersports, Improved Gearbox And Suspension

A two-seater from Bentley? If you were expecting a mid-engined coupe loosely linked to the Le Mans car you're in for a disappointment. However, if you want a solid smooth riding car that can get you to 100 mph in less than 9 seconds, and hurtle on to 200 mph , then this is for you. Why two seats? Well, in the 1920s Bentley produced a model called the Supersports which was a two-seater version of a four-seater. Otherwise, removing the rear seats and putting in a luggage shelf does little other than make the car less useful while saving 100 lb (45 kg) in weight. Not just to make it look sporty, but for practical reasons, there are deep air intakes at the side of the main grille art the front and air outlets from the engine compartment. These do make the car look more aggressive and high-powered, and the only other changes are slightly wider fenders to provide room for bigger wheels and a revised rear end. Those large air intakes at the front feed cool air directly to the twin inter c
