How to make a Concept Car with Clay sculpting DIY - The real Fast and Furious
The Real Fast and the Furious. A full size concept for the streets. Here is
a speed up time-lapse of the JZ Cobra Concept car for those that requested
it. This JZ Cobra Concept was designed and built using clay sculpting or
clay moulding to get the shape. The JZ Cobra concept uses a Toyota Supra
chassis to build upon and therefore is sometimes referred to as a reshell.

2015 Mercedes Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo - Concept Car
Take a look at the making of the Mercedes-Benz AMG showcar with no
Mercedes-Benz team put in a lot of work to make a sketch into a reality.
Passion is what drives car design.
The mystery concept car Mercedes-Benz has been teasing for the past couple
of days has turned out to be this stunning supercar concept, designed for
the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 video game. It's called the "AMG Vision Gran
Turismo", and according to Mercedes it presents a vision for the supercar
of tomorrow. From the video game to the studio to the live debut at the
2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new conceptual supercar turns heads with
its sleek, futuristic curves.

The project was actually started because of a challenge put forward by Gran
Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi. He asked design studios from all across
the globe to come up with a concept using the theme "Vision Gran Turismo".
A handful of these, including the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, were selected to
be transferred to the virtual world where they will be available in Gran
Turismo 6 through online updates.
But for Mercedes, the challenge was also an opportunity to explore future
design. For the German automaker, future design looks to contain extreme
proportions, sensual contours and a high-tech quality. Signature styling
elements for the brand are also present, including a long hood, compact
greenhouse and broad shoulders.

The cabin's design continues the raw, performance theme; in fact, it has
been inspired by a Formula One race car's cockpit. It's said to feature a
pair of bright red sport seats that form part of the structure. The
dashboard has been designed in the form of two gullwing doors which are
positioned on each side of the steering column. As a result the actual
doors themselves, also gullwings, appear to be an extension of the
instrument panel. Finally, the steering column visibly penetrates the
firewall to the engine compartment, creating a visual connection between
the driver and the heart of this supercar, a hand-built AMG V-8.
The engine delivers a claimed 577 horsepower and 590
pound-feet of torque, which is the same rating as the twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 in the latest S63 AMG.
However, on the concept, the Exhaust
gasses exit from eight individual tail-pipes. And just for Gran Turismo 6,
AMG's sound specialists have created a powerful, sonorous Exhaust note.
Performance should be scintillating given the fact that the concept weighs
just 3,053 pounds, made possible due to its lightweight aluminum spaceframe
structure which also incorporates plenty of carbon fiber.

Handling the design of the concept was a team of designers made up of staff
based at Mercedes styling studios in Sindelfingen, Germany as well as in
Como, Italy and Carlsbad, California. The world debut of the concept took
place this weekend at the opening of a new Mercedes R&D center located in
Sunnyvale, also in California.
When might we see a design similar to that of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo
on a production Mercedes? The automaker's upcoming sports car, the 2015 AMG
GT, already appears to share some similarities with the striking concept,
albeit in toned down form. We suspect elements will also filter across to
regular Mercedes lineup as well.

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder First Test: Fastest 0-60 Time Ever? Plus Porsche 959! - Ignition Ep. 109
On this week's Ignition, Carlos Lago has a second go at Porsche's 918
hypercar. The goal: to run the 918 through the full gauntlet of MT's
instrumented testing, including 0-60, quarter mile, braking, figure 8, and
a blistering real-time hot lap around Big Willow race track with pro driver
Randy Pobst. Carlos also gets a rare chance to experience the 918's
ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile
history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it's technology
only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918
attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology,
including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated
electric motor to provide extra Boost. Can Porsche's new hypercar achieve the
same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned
for the record-breaking review.
Watch our original first drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder here:
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 (S-Class) Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/s-class/2014/?id=32972 Mercedes says
their design goal for the S-Class is the “essence of luxury” and they
sure have hit the nail on the head. With a base price of $92,900 the S550
is reserved for those who can live the life of luxury. On the inside of
this luxury sedan there are high end materials everywhere. From the
perforated leather trim, to the 2-tone dash, to the warm wood; the interior
is a great place to spend time.
The driving experience is what you would expect from the luxury flagship
that is the Mercedes S-Class. Under the hood there is a 4.7 liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 455 horsepower. Keep in mind
this is the entry level model. But cruising along in quite comfort and
luxury is the way to go.
