Chevrolet Cruze hatchback production version - 2011 Geneva
The Cruze hatchback is meant to make the model, and the Chevrolet brand, a true competitor in the most important segment in the European market.
Trading on the Cruze' racing credentials, having won the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) last year, Chevrolet touts it's top-selling global nameplate as well-suited to European driving tastes. Its body-frame integral system (BFI) and chassis-tuning providing for a tight, sport ride for the 5-door hatch.
The Cruze hatchback features a 400 liter boot capacity and a 60/40 split rear seating, as is typical of European hatches.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 promo
Right on queue the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 has been revealed at
the Chicago Auto Show - except the name for the top spec pony-car isn't Z28
- it's ZL1! Although billed as the "fastest Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet"
the ZL1 is still undergoing development with performance specs to be
released towards the end of 2011 and a market launch targeted for early
Packing an LSA 6.2-liter supercharged engine producing an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW /
557 PS), the ZL1 uses a high-performance Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual
transmission. Carrying the "MG9" designation, the transmission with its
dual-mass flywheel and twin-disc clutch has a higher torque capacity.
"Camaro ZL1 is about
high-tech performance and design, and is a type of car no one has ever
brought to this segment previously," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of
Chevrolet marketing. "It's the most technically advanced Camaro ever, so we've chosen a
name from the most elite and exclusive Camaro in history."
Exterior improvements are seen in the new front fascia (à la Transformers)
and hood with air extractors. The front fascia also features a lower
splitter and new vertical fog lamps. Other exterior changes include an
aluminum hood with raised carbon fiber center section, new rocker panels,
new-design 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, custom designed Goodyear
Supercar F2 tires, dual-mode Exhaust
system with new tips and ZL1 badges on the grille, hood and brake calipers.
Other major features include Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and
electric power steering.
The ZL1 name is derived from the all-aluminum racing engine of the same
name, which was developed in the late 1960s and installed into a handful of
regular-production 1969 Camaros. Only 69 were built with
the engine, but they've achieved mythical status among enthusiasts, as they
represented the pinnacle in Camaro performance -- until now.
The 2012 ZL1 model is designed to be a major leap forward for the Camaro, bringing a new level of
performance capability to the segment.
Ferrari FF Concept - 2011 Geneva
Love it or hate it, the car is arguably Ferrari's most practical car. It
features as much cargo space as a Mazda2 sedan, with 450 liters (15.9 cubic
feet), a number that nearly doubles when the rear seats are folded down.
Being that it is a Ferrari, the car still has to offer exhilarating
performance. On its way to a 335 km/h (208 mph) top speed, it races from
the line to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, according to the automaker. A
seven-speed double-clutch transmission and new Ruote Motrici four-wheel
drive pretty much guarantee that every time behind the wheel will be a
BRABUS 700 Biturbo based on Mercedes SLS AMG - 2011 Geneva
The Brabus 700 Biturbo, based on the
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, has hit the floor at the Geneva auto show today.
Engineers at the German tuner have devised their own twin-turbo system to fit to the SLS's V8 engine to
achieve an output of 700 PS (514 kW / 690 bhp) and 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of
torque. The B63 bi-turbo system features
a left-turning charger attached to the left side of the engine, as opposed
to most right-charging, right-side fitted twin-turbochargers. This type of fitting allows for
improved gas flow and dynamics.
Brabus also provides an intercooling system, performance Exhaust manifold, sport air filter system, does
an ECU remap and fits its own forged pistons that reduce the compression
ratio to 9.0:1.

The Alfa Romeo 4C Concept has made its debut at the Geneva auto salon

Romeo 8C Competizione. It features a lightweight chassis with carbon-fiber

2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev - 2K
2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT
This has a 1.4L turbo 4 Cyl making 138
HP while paired to a 6 Speed auto.
These car are a definite step up over the Old Cobalt which was an Overall
POS when it came to quality & the bland Styling. The Cruze is pricier
tho it comes with a much better interior. Frontend looks sleek but the
rear is rather bland & dated look. I honestly feel the 2012 Focus will do
much better than the cruze as it will have more option, has better interior
quality, bigger engines that deliver the Same MPGs, better ride, & comes in
diffrent forms vs the Cruze which only is avail as a sedan here in the
Interior is much better considering its a GM vehicle but still they crapped
out by placing hard, rough, cheap surfaces in common areas one would touch
within the interior.
Engine choices are also odd. Both the Base 1.8L 4 cyl & 1.4L turbo 4 Cyl deliver about the same power & neither
is much more economical than the other. So engine options are frugal.
Overall, the car is a step up over what GM built in the past & I'd consider
this the best quality small car GM has delivered, tho they couldve done
better especially with the rear styling, interior, & price.
