When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.
► 2012 BMW S 1000 RR on Track (193 hp)
Like its predecessor, the new RR knows no compromise, providing the highest
level of sporting character and riding dynamics. The convincing features of
the new S 1000 RR are its improved handling with absolute riding stability,
supreme engine performance with perfect everyday practicality, and a
resounding dynamic performance. The highest level of active safety is
safeguarded by the most advanced brake system today on the market, the BMW
Motorrad Race ABS. When accelerating, the rider is supported by the Dynamic
Traction Control system DTC. Both of these systems have been optimised for
the perfect interaction.
There have been no changes to the superior engine power of
142 kW (193 hp) with a weight of only 204 kilograms including 90% fuel
(206.5 weight with Race ABS).
Concept with optimised riding dynamics.
One of the primary objectives pursued for the revised S 1000 RR model was
to improve ridability by Boosting
thrust and enhancing the linearity and harmoniousness of the power and
torque curves. The reconfigured throttle improves overall response.
The new, optimised design raises response sensitivity, tightens the
twistgrip angle, and reduces the twisting force.
Suspension with improved handling and feedback.
The modifications to the new RR suspension have been instrumental in Boosting its riding dynamics. For
instance, the upside down fork and the spring strut feature a new internal
structure, providing an even wider range of damping forces from comfort to
Moreover, the suspension geometry has been modified with new values for the
steering head angle, offset, position of the swing arm pivot, fork
projection, and spring strut length to yield even better handling, steering
accuracy, and feedback for the new S 1000 RR. This has required
modifications to the main frame that also included enlarging the cross
sectional area of the intake air guide through the steering head for
greater air flow efficiency. This package of suspension optimisations is
rounded off by an adjustable mechanical steering damper.
Instrument cluster with new functions.
The engine speed display has been redesigned for better readability. In
addition, the display can now be dimmed and provides more functions. For
instance, the lap timer can now present "Best lap in progress", and if
required, "Speedwarning" can inform the rider when he exceeds a particular
Refined design and new colours.
The new S 1000 RR not only benefits from the advanced developments for the
engine, suspension, and cockpit. It has also gained yet another step ahead
in terms of design. The tail section now presents a considerably leaner
look. There have been some discrete changes to the asymmetrical side
panels, and the centre airbox cover now sports side aperture grilles. On
the top part of the panels, a new, telling identifying feature takes the
form of two winglets that enhance the aerodynamic qualities.
In the most sporting colour combination of Racing red and Alpine white, the
RR exudes power and speed even when it is stationary, whereas plain
Bluefire lends it a decidedly extravagant look.
Sporty dynamics is conveyed by Sapphire black metallic, and in BMW Motorrad
Motorsport colours, the new S 1000 RR testifies to its direct relationship
with BMW Motorrad Motorsport. The distinctive RR logo has been slightly
Additional visual accents take the form of wheels painted in glossy black
and the red spring in the central strut. The matching swing arm either
presents an anodised coating or is kept in black.
Also the ergonomics has been improved in the form of new heel plates for
the rider. The stabilisers on the passenger footrests have now been
designed for a leaner look.
Extended range of optional extra and special equipment.
For individualising the new S 1000 RR, BMW Motorrad is expanding its range
of optional extras and special equipment ex works with a number of
attractive features. Riders with a particularly sporty bent can now equip
their RR with an HP titanium Exhaust
system (with or without ABE) or the HP race data logger. Also the heated
grips offering two levels and fitted as optional extra can take the bite
out of the early morning run on the racetrack or longer rides in cold
2015 Audi TT ► Development, Test and Production
To start with, the new TT will be available with one TFSI and one TDI
engine. At 135 kW (184 bhp) and 169 kW (310 bhp), both four-cylinder
engines offer solid power, but their consumption figures been reduced
compared with the second-generation TT. This also applies to the 228 kW
(310 bhp) 2.0 TFSI, which powers the new TTS. A start/stop system is
available as standard in all power units, while a sound actuator (part of
Audi drive select) provides a sonorous sound.
The TT 2.0 TDI ultra, which will be available at launch with manual
transmission and front-wheel drive, consumes on average only 4.2 liters of
fuel over 100 km (56 US mpg) -- equating to CO2 emissions of 110 grams per
km (177.03 g/mile) and creating a new best value in the segment. As with
all the engines in the new TT, the two-liter diesel, which delivers 135 kW
(184 bhp) and 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) torque, fulfills the limits of the Euro
The 2.0 TFSI is available in two versions -- in the TT with 169 kW (230
bhp) and 370 Nm (272.90 lb-ft) and in the TTS with 228 kW (310 bhp) and 380
Nm (280.27 lb-ft), in conjunction with an even sportier sound. The Audi TTS
advances in the top performance range -- it takes 4.7 seconds to accelerate
from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph), while the top speed, which is limited to
250 km/h (155.34 mph), is just a formality.
As standard, the 2.0 TFSI in the TT, as well as in the TTS, works with a
manual six-speed transmission, or optionally with the six-speed S tronic.
The dual clutch transmission changes gears at lightning speed and without
any noticeable break in traction. In manual mode, the transmission can be
controlled as required either by rocker switches on the steering wheel (a
standard feature on the TTS) or using the selector lever. In efficiency
mode in the Audi drive select dynamic driving system (another standard
feature on the TTS), the S tronic engages freewheeling when the driver
takes his foot of the accelerator pedal.

All the cabin elements have been completely redesigned and carefully
studied to combine exceptional standards of sportiness, comfort and
The dash is decidedly compact and uses a sleek horizontal movement along
with two-tone leather trim to accentuate its dynamism. The sculpted volumes
underscore the fact that the main dash is separate from the tunnel, freeing
up space and creating a sense of lightness.
The flowing central tunnel is dynamic and functional at once. The signature
F1 bridge frees up a great deal of space to stow various odds and ends
while the main function buttons are now more in a more ergonomic location.
The sides also now feature comfortable leg-rest padding and higher up there
is more storage in the compartment beneath the armrest, which also features
Meticulous focus on ergonomics, quality and attention to detail has also

redesigned with attention paid to the profiles of the seat backs,
guaranteeing rear passengers a more comfortable seating position and more
The rear seats mean the California T can accommodate up to four: two
children or, alternatively, two adults on shorter trips. Equally, they can
be used to increase luggage space on journeys as their backs fold down to
communicate with the luggage compartment so that longer items such as golf
bags or skis can be stowed, too.

2014 Ford Fiesta vs Chevy Sonic Turbo vs the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Review ( Part 1)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic turbo are small economy cars that almost directly
compete. Of course the difference is that the Fiesta is normally aspirated
while the sonic has a small turbo. How
does this effect a cars performance when the road gets steep, the altitude
get hight and the car is loaded to the rafters with with people? From
Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a
maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation
and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the
Chevy Sonic turbo.
