Mazda Furai : Race Track
The Furai, which celebrates 40 years of Mazda's rotary engine and
international motorsports heritage is seen here in full intimate detail.
Furai is the latest in the Nagare design series from Mazda introduced at
the 2008 Detroit AutoShow (NAIAS). Based on a US Le Mans race series
Courage C65 chassis and featuring a 3 rotor rotary engine fueled by
ethanol. Hear the full sound these rotors make in this intimate video.
Info from Wikipedia : The Furai officially debuts at the 2008 North
American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Furai (風籟, Fūrai?),
meaning Sound of the wind, is the fifth and last of the Mazda Nagare line
of concept cars that have been made by Mazda since 2006. The chassis is
based on the Courage Compétition C65 Le Mans Prototype that Mazda last
used to compete in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously
and is designed to use E100 ethanol fuel, it is powered by a new generation
3-rotor wankel engine that puts out 450 brake horsepower (340 kW). The
engine is developed and built by renowned rotary tuner, Racing Beat, who
also built the car's rotary-shaped muffler canister.
The car bears the #55 number that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans winning
ancestor, the 787B. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai is fully functional
and is currently being tested at various tracks. It has run at Laguna Seca
Head designer, Laurens van den Acker, has stated in an interview with Top
Gear magazine that there are possibilities of the Furai being used for
racing in Le Mans, and he also has strong hopes that the car could be
brought to the market.
Montaje del Motor Renesis - Mazda RX-8 - NO REBUILD
Proceso de remontaje del motor Renesis de un Mazda RX-8. NO ES UN REBUILD
de Motor puesto que no se han cambiado ninguna junta de estanqueidad,
sellos de aceite o sellos de motor. Se ha limpiado todas las piezas y se
han reutilizado, con el propósito de practicar el montaje del motor y
almacenarlo de una manera mas compacta para en un futuro rehacerlo con
piezas destinadas a su uso en competición.
REPITO: NO REBUILD, el motor no funcionará puesto que no tiene juntas de
estanqueidad, es un video de propósito meramente instructivo.

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
