CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.

2013 Range Rover ► DEMO
The fourth generation of the iconic Range Rover line, the new model has
been revealed to the world via a dramatic event held at The Royal Ballet
School in Richmond, London.
The All-New Range Rover is the ultimate luxury SUV, following the
innovative spirit of the original design from over 40 years ago.
The world's first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminium body, the new Range
Rover takes the capabilities of the marque's flagship to a new level, with
even greater luxury and refinement, enhanced performance and handling on
all terrains, and significant advances in sustainability.
Range Rovers are renowned for providing occupants a sensation of serene
isolation from the hectic world outside, and the new model has been
engineered to meet the highest luxury car standards for refinement.
Meticulous attention to detail throughout the development process has
eliminated all unwanted sounds and traces of harshness, and measures like
the rigorously optimised body structure, acoustic lamination of the
windscreen and side door glass, and new dual-isolated engine mounts have
led to a significant reduction in noise levels.
The new chassis architecture is combined with completely re-engineered
four-corner air suspension, and together they have enabled engineers to
achieve even more luxurious ride comfort and refinement, in addition to
transformed on-road handling, with more confident and agile cornering.
With its highly acclaimed line-up of torque-rich engines, the new Range
Rover delivers swift and effortless performance. Customers have a choice
of two petrol (5.0-litre 375 PS LR-V8 and 510PS LR-V8 Supercharged) and two
diesel (3.0-litre 258PS TDV6 and 4.4-litre 339PS SDV8) engines, all of
which are now paired with a smooth and responsive eight-speed automatic
True to the Range Rover DNA, the new model features the unique Command
Driving Position, placing the driver in an elevated, upright seating
position - typically over 90mm higher than other premium SUVs - to provide
a supreme sense of confidence and control.
The all-new Range Rover has been engineered from the ground up to be the
most refined, most capable Range Rover ever. With the adoption of the
latest body and chassis technologies, the vehicle's all-terrain performance
has moved on to another level, both in the breadth and accessibility of its
off-road capability, and its on-road handling and refinement.
Amongst the industry-leading innovations is a ground-breaking
next-generation version of Land Rover's Terrain Response® system, which
analyses the current driving conditions and automatically select the most
suitable vehicle settings.
An all-new state-of-the-art lightweight suspension architecture delivers
class-leading wheel travel, providing exceptional wheel articulation and
composure to deal with the toughest conditions.
Outstanding traction and dynamic stability is provided by the proven Range
Rover full-time intelligent 4WD system, with a two-speed transfer box,
working in parallel with the sophisticated electronic traction control
The new Range Rover's unmatched breadth of capability is also reflected in
its tremendously strong structure with enhanced body geometry for
all-terrain conditions, wading depth which has improved by 200mm to 900mm,
and its position as the best towing vehicle in its class with a 3,500kg
To ensure exceptional durability and reliability, the new Range Rover has
been subjected to Land Rover's punishing on- and off-road test and
development regime, with a fleet of development vehicles covering countless
thousands of miles over 18 months of arduous tests in over 20 countries
with extremes of climate and road surfaces.
► Mercedes Ener-G-Force Concept - OFFICIAL TRAILER
Of course the concept of the Ener-G-Force for the Los Angeles Design
Challenge is pure, rendered science fiction. However, the notion of
designing tomorrow's off-roader fascinated the designers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad, California to such an
extent that they evolved the vision of a police version into a civilian
version and even built a 1:1-scale model. Like the "Highway Patrol Vehicle
2025", the shape of the civilian Ener-G-Force is modelled after the
G-Class, the off-road icon whose continuous history goes all the way back
to the 1970s and that to this very day still tackles the future as a
stylistically and technologically advanced SUV.
Like the police version, the model of the civilian Ener-G-Force is
unmistakably inspired by the G-Class, which has long been considered an
automotive icon. However, it presents a radical reinterpretation of this
classic that looks far into the future. Important genes such as proportions
and design elements were adopted conceptually and completely redesigned and
updated in a clean concept for beyond tomorrow. Ener-G-Force Designer
Hubert Lee: "Of course we wanted to take a clear step forward, but we also
wanted the G's characteristic features". The Ener-G-Force has a similar
profile, however with a high shoulder line and scaled-down glass areas.
While the clear design idiom of the G-Class has remained, all surfaces are
designed to express intensity and tension. The meticulously executed
details also are a clear indication that the Ener-G-Force is the product of
modern times. Like the G-Class, the Ener-G-Force sports a front with an
expressive radiator grille that incorporates the headlamps. LEDs in the
headlamps form lamp units in the shape of a G. This gives the Ener-G-Force
a strong, iconic appearance and demonstrates dominance. The front
indicators and position lights are mounted on top of the wings as a
significant G-Class element.
The mounted roof distinctive to the G-Class and the tripartite glass area
also cite the fundamental genes of the classic off-roader from
Mercedes-Benz, but represent a clear step forward. This is also evident in
the large wheels, whose 20-inch rims give the Ener-G-Force a powerful,
towering stance. The Ener-G-Force also plays on the utility factor in an
entirely new way. For instance, the distinctive feature in the rear is a
slightly off-centre pull-out compartment whose cover takes up the
characteristic look of the spare wheel carrier of the classic G-Class. This
pull-out tool box can hold a wide variety of equipment items that
consequently are quickly in reach without having to open the whole

SUV looks like it could eat rocks for breakfast but in fact the beast
conceptually use a"hydro-tech converter" to convert water into hydrogen for
very green fuel cell power. Perhaps a better way to look at this crazy
earth roaming monster is as a concept that might in the year 2025 replace
the current G wagon. The Ener-G-Force is packed with new technology or at
least the ideas of new technology. Check out this exclusive TFLcar video to

MONSTER: The Brabus B63S 700 6x6! - IAA Frankfurt 2013 (1080p Full HD)
Recently Mercedes-Benz launched the 6x6 version of the G63 AMG. Of course
Brabus couldn't wait to get their hands on it and went to work! Result: The
Brabus B63S 700 6x6! A true MONSTER!
Brabus lends the most exclusive G-Class of all times even more punch and
heavenly increased (544bhp to 690bhp) the power of this 6x6 Machine with a
5.5-liter V8 Biturbo with Brabus
B63S-700 engine. The torque got a pretty good improvement as well: 561nm to
708nm ! To realize this enormous power increase by 154 bhp, the peripherals
of the V8 are modified extensively.
The six-wheel drive powerhouse weighing around four tons sprints from 0 to
100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.4 seconds. The top speed is limited
electronically to 160 km/h (100 mph) due to the 37-inch off-road tires.
As a contrast to the striking black, chrome and carbon-fiber Brabus
exterior, the Brabus interior designers picked a fiery red Mastik
What do you think of this 6x6 G-Class by Brabus? Would you spend 410.000
euros on it? At least it will really take you anywhere you want to go.. and
