Mercedes-Benz is a German brand of luxury and high-performance automobiles,
buses, coaches, and trucks owned by Daimler AG. Mercedes-Benz has, over the
years, introduced many of the technological and safety features that have
become common in modern vehicles.
Mercedes Benz SLR Commercial "It's for real"
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an Anglo-German sports car jointly
developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built jointly in
Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.
Daimler AG, owner of Mercedes-Benz, also owns 40% of the McLaren Group.
Due to the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined
arrangement and its driving characteristics lead some commentators to
classify the SLR McLaren as a GT whose rivals can be considered to be e.g.
the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and Ferrari 599 GTB.
It is the fastest automatic transmission car in the world. SLR stands for
"Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing). Mercedes-Benz has stated
that they will build 3500 SLRs in a span of 7 years, with an annual
production of only 500 cars. The car's base price is GB£300,000 (approx.
US$495,000 or €475,000, c. 2007).
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR of
1955, based on the W196 F1 car, yet named after the road-going 300SL
Gullwing. On 4 April 2008, Mercedes announced they will cease production of
the SLR. The last of the coupes rolled off the production line at the end
of 2007 and the roadster version is due to be discontinued in early 2009.
The brake discs are carbon-ceramic and provide better stopping power and
fade resistance than steel discs when operating under ideal working
temperature. Mercedes-Benz claims these discs are fade resistant to
1200°C. The front discs are internally vented and 370 mm in diameter. 8
piston calipers are used. Rear discs are 360 mm in diameter with 4 piston
calipers. During wet conditions the calipers automatically skim the surface
of the disks to keep them dry.
To improve braking performance there is an automatic air brake, when
engaged the rear elevation angle of the rear spoiler is set to 65 degrees.
The additional rear downforce in addition to the markedly increased
aerodynamic drag increases peak deceleration ~25%.
The SLR features active aerodynamics; there is a spoiler mounted on the
rear integral air brake flap. The spoiler increases downforce depending on
its angle of elevation (angle of attack). At speeds above 95 km/h the
spoiler/brake automatically raises to 10 degrees (15 in 722 edition), when
demanded via the driver's switch, the elevation can be increased to 30
degrees (35 in 722 version) for increased rear downforce, at the cost of
increased steady state drag.
The SLR McLaren sports a hand-built 5.4-litre, supercharged V8 engine.
The SLR sports a 232-kilogram (512 lb), hand-built, 5.4-litre (5439
cc/331.9 cu in), supercharged, all-aluminum, SOHC V8 engine. The cylinders
are angled at 90 degrees with three valves per cylinder and lubricated via
a dry sump system. The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore and stroke
is 97 millimetre (3.82 in) and 92 millimeters (3.62 in), respectively. The
Lysholm-type twin-screw Supercharger
produces 0.9 bar (13 psi) of Boost,
the turbine rotates at 23000 revolutions per minute, and the air is cooled
via two Intercoolers. The
engine generates a maximum power of 626 PS (617 hp/460 kW) at 6500
revolutions per minute and a maximum torque of 780 newton-metres (575
ft·lbf) at 3250 revolutions per minute. 2003 models were leaving showrooms
at 616 bhp (459 kW/625 PS) and now are slightly increased to 626 bhp (467
kW/635 PS) .
Unlike most of its contemporaries, its engine is front-mid mounted. McLaren
took the original concept car designed by Mercedes and moved the engine 1
metre (39.4 in) behind the front bumper, and around 50 centimetres (19.7
in) behind the front axle. They also optimized the design of the center
Mercedes Benz SLK Commercial "Birthday Present"
The R170-platform SLK 230 Kompressor was introduced in 1997 for model year
1998 to compete with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Setting it apart was
its folding hardtop, though its additional weight detracting from the
performance of the 185 hp 2.3 L supercharged I4 engine and automatic
transmission. The SLK was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1997.
A 5-speed manual transmission was added for 1999 along with the 215 hp 3.2
L V6 and 6-speed manual transmission in the 2001 SLK 320.
An AMG model was added in 2001, with a 354 hp (264 kW) supercharged version
of the 3.2 L V6. This SLK 32 AMG was the best-performing SLK ever, and was
a direct rival of the BMW M Roadster and Porsche Boxster S. It is only
offered with automatic transmission. The SLK AMG engine is also hand built.
Not all Mercedes SLKs were built in Bremen, Germany, the SLK 320 being
built in South Africa. The very first R170 Mercedes SLK was completed on
January 29, 1997 and last on April 7, 2004.
Summary of all versions and engine specifications:
· SLK 200 - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 136 hp I4 engine, 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 9.3
seconds, top speed of 208 km/h (129 mph). NB Exported only to Portugal,
Italy and Greece.
· SLK 200 Kompressor - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 192 hp I4 supercharged engine,

Mercedes Benz S400 CDI Commercial
The Mercedes-Benz W220 was a series of flagship sedans which constituted
the Mercedes-Benz S-Class during the early-to-mid 2000's. The W220 (and
similar W215 CL-Class coupés) started production in 2000. The W220 was a
replacement for the earlier W140 S-Class after the 1999 model year.
Compared to its predecessor, the W220 had somewhat smaller exterior
dimensions but offered more interior space, particularly in the long
wheelbase versions (although the boot is smaller than on its W140
predecessor). Production of the W220 totalled 485,000 units, slightly more
than the production totals from the W140. Production ended in 2006 when the
W220 and W215 were replaced by the W221 S-Class and the W216 CL-Class.
In many European countries, the diesel S320 CDI version became the most
popular model, making it the first S-Class in which a diesel engine
achieved broad appeal.
The W220 was not the first model to feature the company's new design theme
for the next generation of Mercedes-Benz. This honor was given to the
A-Class launched in 1997. Nevertheless, the W220 demonstrated a
significantly different stylistic mindset, with both exterior lines and an
interior design that express elegance and modernity. This can be seen as a
response to criticism on its W140 predecessor, which was sometimes labelled
as too big and too heavy.
Despite being smaller, the new car was roomier inside while the dashboard
carried over the new styling details first seen in the Mk I A-Class the
A facelifted version of the S-Class was introduced in 2003, offering a more
aerodynamic front-end and redesigned tailights, though the exterior style
remained largely analogous to the previous W220 models. Although the
facelift only made minor changes to the exterior, it addressed several of
the issues in the COMAND system and other interior features. Exterior
updates included a more upright grille angle, new transparent housing for
the headlamps (replacing the earlier opaque versions), and restyled lower
air intakes on the front bumper.
The W220 was available with more engine options than the W126 or W140. The
range started with a smaller 2.8L 197 hp (147 kW) V6 motor, although this
model was not imported in all countries, notably in North America. Very
popular was the 3.2L 224 hp (167 kW) V6, which was superseded by an
enlarged 3.7L 245 hp (183 kW) V6 in the S350.
The S430 was powered by a 4.3L 279 hp (208 kW) V8 and the S500 was powered
by a 5.0L 306 hp (228 kW) V8. The S430 also had a shortened wheelbase
variant, which was the entry-level S-Class model offered in North America.
The S55 AMG ('01-'02) was outfitted with a 5.4L 354 hp (264 kW) V8 motor
while the later versions ('03-'06) sported the same motor, but supercharged
to a rated 493 hp (368 kW). The S600 ('01-'02) was outfitted with a 5.8L
362 hp (270 kW) V12 engine while the later versions ('03-'06) sported a
twin-turbocharged (or Bi-turbo) 493 hp (368 kW) 5.5L V12. The justification
for having two models with the same power (S600 and S55 AMG) is that the
S55 AMG is sportier and more responsive, while the S600 is more luxurious
with a smoother ride.
For one month in 2001, AMG produced an S63 AMG, which was sold in very
limited numbers. The S63 was powered by a 6.3L 444 hp (331 kW) V12. An
undisclosed number of the cars were sold exclusively through AMG in
European and Asian markets.
The S65 AMG was introduced in 2005. Powered by a Bi-turbo 6.0L 612 hp (456 kW) V12 motor, the S65 was
the most powerful S-Class, as well as the world's most powerful five-seat
sedan with a staggering output of 604 hp (450 kW) and 738 ft·lbf (1,001
N·m) of torque.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1898 by Frank Seiberling
in Akron, Ohio. Goodyear manufactures tires for automobiles, commercial
trucks, light trucks, SUVs, race cars, airplanes, farm equipment and heavy
Even though he had no connection with the company, it was named after
Charles Goodyear. Goodyear invented vulcanized rubber in 1839. The first
Goodyear tires became popular because they were easily detachable and
required little maintenance.
Goodyear is known throughout the world for the Goodyear Blimp. The first
Goodyear blimp flew in 1925. Today it is one of the most recognizable
advertising icons in America. The company is the most successful tire
supplier in Formula One history, with more starts, wins, and constructors'
championships than any other tire supplier. They pulled out of the sport
after the 1998 season. It is the sole tire supplier for NASCAR series.
Goodyear participates extensively in motorsports both as a sponsor and as a
tire supplier. Their involvement includes NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula SAE.
From 1967--1999, Goodyear tires won the Indianapolis 500 a total of 29
times, including 21 consecutive years (1974--1994) where Goodyear was the
exclusive supplier for the race.
