2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG vs 2007 Ferrari F430 Drag Racing Racelegal.com 6-29-2012
Friday night race your ride at qualcomm stadium racelegal drag racing 2007
Ferrari F430 vs 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG The body styling of the F430 was
revised from its predecessor, the Ferrari 360, to improve its aerodynamic
efficiency. Although the drag coefficient remained the same, downforce was
greatly enhanced. Despite sharing the the same basic Alcoa Aluminium
chassis, roof line, doors and glass, the car looked significantly different
than the 360. A great deal of Ferrari heritage was included in the exterior
design. At the rear, the Enzo's tail lights and interior vents were added.
The car's name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror.
The large oval openings in the front bumper are reminiscent of Ferrari
racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 "sharknose" Formula One
car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill.
The F430 features a 4.3L V8 petrol engine derived from a shared
Ferrari/Maserati design. This new power plant was a significant departure
for Ferrari, as all previous Ferrari V8s were descendants of the Dino
racing program of the 1950s. This fifty year development cycle came to an
end with the entirely new 4.3L, the architecture of which is expected to
replace the Dino-derived V12 in most other Ferrari cars. The engine's
output specifications are: 490 PS (360 kW; 483 hp) at 8500 rpm and 465 N·m
(343 lb·ft) of torque at 5250 rpm, 80% of which is available below
3500rpm. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only
4 kg and engine dimensions were decreased, for easier packaging. The
connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the
four-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were copied directly
from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency. The F430 has a top
speed of 196 mph It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds.
Height of an adult female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the
critical dimensions of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the
engine and the rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note
this here because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is
utterly bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what
it represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes
with bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its
churning carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very
antithesis of the overly complex and overweight half. The SLS is a serious
super sports car," says AMG chief of development Tobias Moers before taking
a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car that still managed to weigh in
at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572 pounds," he says, nearly 300
pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the 182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's
mass in check is its entirely aluminum construction (save for that
driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum
structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes says.

Efficiency, safety and connectivity– the Future Truck 2025 revolutionises
the key elements of goods transport
Future Truck 2025 – Perfect synthesis of technology and design
Daimler Trucks strengthens technological leadership
Blind Spot Assist important step to accident-free driving
Daimler Trucks invests 1 bln. Euro per year into research and development
Dr Wolfgang Bernhard: "Our Future Truck 2025 provides compelling answers to
the challenges that our customers will be facing in the future. Our aim
therefore is to press forward with readying this technology for the market
and to bring it to series-production standard. I am convinced that this
will open up a whole new business perspective for Daimler Trucks."
The technology of tomorrow is already a reality at Daimler Trucks, in the
shape of the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025. The autonomously driving
truck was presented on the eve of the 65th International Motor Show for
commercial vehicles in Hanover, Germany. Its perfect synthesis of
technology and design means: The Future Truck 2025 is more than simply a
new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will
be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.
