2012 Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Coupe Interior
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Mercedes Benz - Inside, the instrument
cluster with integrated screen immediately recalls the new CLS63 AMG with
three separate round gauges providing information on speed, engine rpm,
fuel level, and coolant temperature. Other display options are available
through the AMG main menu accessible via the multifunction buttons on the
steering wheel. The three-dimensional TFT color display located inside the
speedometer welcomes the driver by showing an AMG logo.
The specially shaped AMG performance steering wheel has been adopted from
the CLS63 AMG and includes flattened top and bottom sections, metallic trim
elements, grip areas trimmed in perforated leather, and aluminum shift
paddles. The instrument cluster and center console are trimmed in
high-gloss black piano lacquer while the dashboard and doors feature
aluminum trim; optional carbon fiber or wood trims are also available. The
rotary control for selecting the C, S, S+, M transmission modes and RACE
START is situated on the center console.
McLaren F1 In Detail
BrianZuk records in detail the legendary McLaren F1, this particular car
being chassis #28, a red over cream combination. The video shows the
exterior, interior, pedals, gauges, engine, wheels, side luggage
compartments, badges, key, trunk, and more of this stunning F1! This 1995
F1 was formerly owned by Michael Andretti. Hope you enjoy the video, one of
the most incredible vehicles I have filmed and will ever film...a timeless
masterpiece, and one of my all time favorites, if not my all time fav!
Special Thanks to McLaren San Francisco, especially Alessandro Ribola, who
spent over 2 hours with me showing me every detail of the vehicle :) Enjoy!

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG vs 2007 Ferrari F430 Drag Racing Racelegal.com 6-29-2012

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.
