A look at BMW's Vision EfficientDynamics
• High-performance concept study with BMW ActiveHybrid technology
visualising the dynamic performance typical of a BMW against the backdrop
of future demands in sustained mobility. BMW Vision EfficientDynamics as a
symbol for the future of Sheer Driving Pleasure in harmony with
• Development aim: The performance of a BMW M Car and a highly emotional
character combined with the fuel economy and emission management of a
modern small car in the premium class. As a result, this unique sports car
offers the most consistent rendition of the BMW EfficientDynamics
• Innovative approach in the context of BMW EfficientDynamics: The
exceedingly good balance of CO2 emission management and driving pleasure
results from a revolutionary vehicle concept developed all in one from the
ground up, achieving a new level of efficiency combined with a unique
driving experience. The overall result goes far beyond the sum total of the
individual features and components in this concept car.
• BMW Vision EfficientDynamics offers a realistic impression of the
unique potential of BMW ActiveHybrid technology and the great innovative
thrust of BMW EfficientDynamics.
• Offering a full-hybrid concept, the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics
concept car is powered by a three-cylinder turbodiesel and two electric motors. Overall
system output is 262 kW/356 hp, maximum torque 800 Newton-metres/590 lb-ft.
All-wheel drive featuring an electric motor on both the front and rear
• Anticipated performance: Acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in
4.8 seconds, top speed 250 km/h (155 mph) (electronically limited) , fuel
consumption in the EU test cycle 3.76 litres/100 km (equal to 75.1 mph
imp), CO2 emissions 99 grams/kilometre.
• As a plug-in hybrid, BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is able to cover the
entire fuel consumption drive cycle under electric power alone. Taking the
sources of energy used for generating the electric power consumed into
account (EU electricity mix), this reduces the CO2 emission rating to just
50 grams per kilometre.
• Electric power is generated without the slightest increase in fuel
consumption through a particularly efficient concept of Brake Energy
Regeneration. Energy is stored in 98 lithium polymer cells. The car is able
to cover a distance of approximately 50 km/31 miles in the electric mode
• Aerodynamics developed with know-how from Formula 1. CX drag
coefficient optimised to just 0.22. Forward-looking energy management uses
the maximum potential available in each case to minimise fuel consumption.
• Technology-oriented body design as a clear expression of consistent
lightweight technology and aerodynamic quality. Design language typical of
the brand, setting clear signals in terms of sporting performance and
• The 2+2-seater concept combines dynamic performance and supreme
efficiency with an enhanced level of all-round function. BMW Vision
EfficientDynamics symbolises BMWs commitment to offer an unprecedented
driving experience for up to four occupants.
• BMW Vision EfficientDynamics comes with gullwing doors opening up to
the side. Innovative, weight-optimised door kinematics makes entering the
car at both front and rear convenient and very easy.
• The interior of this unique 2+2-seater intentionally demonstrates the
very latest in modern technology. At the same time the use of natural
materials underlines BMWs strategy of sustainability borne out through this
• The roof and door inserts made of polycarbonate glass automatically
become darker as a function of incoming light.

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.

Military Vehicles [Swiss/Switzerland]: MOWAG Piranha 3C APC/IFV (Die Schweizer Armee)
The MOWAG Piranha is a family of armoured fighting vehicles designed by the
Swiss MOWAG, which since April 2010 has changed name to General Dynamics
European Land Systems - Mowag GmbH.
The MOWAG Piranha is available in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, and 10x10 wheel versions.
There are several variants within these versions, giving different degrees
of armour protection and several kinds of turrets, for use in a variety of
roles. Piranha derivatives have been assigned roles as troop transports,
command vehicles, fire support vehicles, tank trainers, and police
Four generations of vehicles have been produced, manufactured by MOWAG or
under license by other companies, and variants are in service with military
forces throughout the world. Piranha derivatives have been manufactured
under license by General Dynamics (Canada), BAE Systems Land Systems (UK),
Komatsu (Japan), Cardoen and FAMAE (Chile), and in the USA. The 8x8 US Army
Stryker vehicle is derived from the Canadian LAV III which in turn is based
on the Piranha, as is the LAV-25 family in service with the USMC. The
Australian Defence Force also has its own modified version of the Piranha I
8x8 known as the ASLAV (Australian Light Armoured Vehicle). The ASLAV is
operated by two cavalry regiments (the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and 2nd/14th
Light Horse Regiment) and is used in the armoured reconnaissance and
armoured personnel carrier roles. Some variants, like the United States
Marine Corps's Light Armored Vehicle-25 (LAV-25) and its derivatives, are
equipped with propellers for amphibious use, though their abilities are
limited to sheltered waters.
Ares Security Vehicles VR7 Armoured Land Cruiser
ASV's VR7-armoured Land Cruiser was successfully tested by the Beschussamt
Munich in Germany, a worldwide recognized independent ballistic laboratory.
321 bullets, 4 fragmentation grenades, 2 landmines and 12.5kg of high
explosive failed to defeat ASV's armouring. For more information please
