In Frankfurt, BMW out the big guns with two concepts employing power in large parts of carbon. The BMW i3 comes in the form of a minispace to complement the duo’s big brother cut i8.Everyone now knows, the big offensive in the automotive market for electric cars segment. BMW is no exception and has every intention to attack, in terms of sportiness with its cut i8, but also mobility with i3.
This is an answer for those seeking an electric vehicle adapted to everyday needs for use primarily urban. Practice, designed to provide optimum efficiency, the i3 brand with style BMW’s entry into the electric era. Unlike many vehicles, the BMW i3 is not the result of the conversion of a vehicle, but rather a creation of its own. A process that has to rethink the organization of elements on board the car to an enhanced livability.
Stylistically, the i3 concept is strongly oriented towards the car of tomorrow. With its large windows to let in light, its doors for easy access antagonists. He tries to charm the public. Add to that a load volume of more than 200 liters, and you get a vehicle that should convince many. To counter the weight gain induced by the arrival of the batteries and all the artillery necessary to the effectiveness of electric vehicles, BMW has opted for building materials that provide both lightness and strength without adversely affecting the behavior road.
The architecture of the car, called the LifeDrive, combines two modules. Drive module includes the frame, the energy accumulator, the drive system and active functions in a collision. All in a structure consisting essentially of aluminum. Life module for its part is an interior light and resistant reinforced, not surprisingly, by carbon fibers. Its light weight helps to preserve the autonomy of the car while improving performance.

The automaker Hyundai continues to demonstrate its presence in the automotive world by presenting a number of concept cars and new cars that will be adopted updated technology. One of the cars with the latest technology is the 2012 model Hyundai Veloster. Hyundai wanted to fix the problem by introducing a version of the turbocharged engine is more powerful in order to compete with other competitors.
In the sector of kitchen runway, Veloster will be equipped with 1.6 L four-cylinder T-GDI. This machine is claimed to be capable of spraying power up to 208 hp (155kW) at 6000 rpm rotation with a maximum torque of 264 Nm (187 lb.ft) at 1600-5000 rpm range. These results make the power equivalent to the Golf GTI Veloster but lower torque 16 Nm.
BMW has launched BMW i8 Concept will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, a sporty plug-in hybrid electric motors and combustion engines after the Vision EfficientDynamics concept.
The Concept i8, very close to the concept Vision EfficientDynamics is a 2 +2 coupe which receives the electric motor of the i3 concept on its front axle and 1.5 three-cylinder block internal combustion high performance of 164 kW – 223 hp or – a torque of 300 Nm on the rear axle.
Both engines are connected by a “Keel energy” housing a battery high voltage but with fewer battery cells than the i3, which is all electric. Physically, the BMW i8 Concept features a low profile, large glazed areas and doors elytra. The cabin, which is heavily loaded with technology, is hosting a large information screen and a screen acting as the instrument cluster.
This combination allows thermal-electric 2 +2 to cover the zero to 100 km / h in under 5 seconds to reach 250 km / h, and not to consume more than 3 in the European driving cycle. The sports coupe can, thanks to its lithium-ion battery into an electrical outlet in 2 hours, 35 km to go all electric, even if there are plans for a mixed operation.
Screens that allow the driver to enjoy this i8 concept of intelligent mobility services – parking assistant, assistant traffic congestion, intelligent navigation in large cities and share premium car “Drive Now” – that BMW has to offer. To develop these new services, make the propeller also invests in young start-ups through its structure i BMW Ventures.
2012 New Hyundai Grand Avega With its sporty appearance, supported by a good engine performance.

Home modifications Germany, featuring spectacular Brabus Mercedes-Benz E-Class which they claim as the fastest four seat convertible in the world and "gahar" as it gets "800" touch. And these figures do not only identify changes but also about the power of 800 HP engines.
Thanks to the great powers to the experience of the engineers in developing the Brabus V12 engine from Mercedes-Benz S600 is modified in all parts of the maximum, starting from a special crankshaft, pistons made larger cylinder bore and cylinder heads improved to optimize the mix of sport camshafts. Plus, Biturbo system that has 4 air-to-water intercooler that is expressed by the turbocharged.
With major changes, the original engine capacity rose 5.5 liters to 6.3 liters. In addition to 800 HP power, maximum torque 1420 Nm, but is electronically limited to 1100 Nm in order to have a durable power.
Maximum speed 5-speed automatic transmission car is estimated at 400 miles per hour. But, especially for kabriolet limited to 370 miles per hour. When accelerate from 0-100 kilometers per hour is achieved in 3.7 seconds, while 0-200 kph takes 9.9 seconds and 300 miles per hour 23.9 seconds.
To offset the major forces, Brabus also perfected the feet. As recalibrated suspension with adjustable dampers. Included also replace brake systems that have high performance.
The width of the car body is made more definite by using a fiber material karbon.The goal, besides getting a lighter weight, aerodynamic factors that change can be obtained and tested in a wind tunnel. Because of the wide body, four wheels can wear tires rims wrapped in size 265/30 ZR 9.5Jx19 (front), behind 10-inch rims with 295/30 ZR tires.
