Saab PhoeniX concept revealed in Geneva

A year after gaining independence from GM, Saab is rising from the ashes with the stunning PhoeniX concept. Penned by Jason Castriota, the PhoeniX wears Saab's new Aeromotional design language which incorporates aircraft-inspired styling elements. Notable highlights include butterfly doors, winglets, a twin-ripple hood, LED 'ice-block' headlights, and a distinctive front fascia which will likely been seen on future production models. According to Castriota, "The PhoeniX establishes a new reference point for the future of Saab product design. It symbolizes a renaissance of the innovative spirit and passion that drove Saab to build its first car. We're now taking the visual DNA forward with what we call 'aeromotional' design, adding emotion, power and fluidity." No interior pictures were released, but Saab says the cabin has a minimalist design with a 2+2 seating arrangement and an afterburner-inspired instrument cluster. More notably, the concept features an Android-based IQon infotainment system which can download third-party apps via the internet. Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops 200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up by a rear axle electric motor (dubbed eXWD) which churns out 34 PS (25 kW / 34 hp) and gives the car an all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this setup, the concept can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). More importantly, Saab estimates the PhoeniX will have a combined fuel consumption of 5.0L/100 km (56.5 mpg img / 47 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.

Alfa Romeo 4C Concept world premiere - 2011 Geneva
The Alfa Romeo 4C Concept has made its debut at the Geneva auto salon today. The 4C Concept is a two-seat, rear-wheel drive sport coupe about 4 meters long and with a wheelbase just short of 2.4 meters. It features a mid-rear mounted 1.8 liter turbocharged power plant allowing for a 40/60 weight distribution (front axle/rear axle). Much of the technology and materials of the 4C are inherited from the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. It features a lightweight chassis with carbon-fiber and aluminum body structures for a total curb weight of less than 850 kg (1874 lbs). http://www.worldcarfans.com/111030130930/alfa-romeo-4c-concept-world-premie re-in-geneva





2012 Kia Rio promo
Kia has introduced the new Rio at the Geneva Motor Show. Available in three- and five-door body styles, the redesigned model features a bold front fascia, deeply sculpted doors, and optional LED daytime driving lights. It measures 55mm longer, 25mm wider, and 15mm lower than the outgoing model. Furthermore, the 2,570mm wheelbase results in a spacious cabin and a luggage compartment which can hold up to 390 liters (13.8 cubic feet) of cargo. Speaking of the interior, the cabin is described as "clean" and "sophisticated." While we wouldn't go that far, material quality seems significantly improved from its predecessor. Additionally, the Rio offers options such as passive entry, Bluetooth connectivity, and heated front seats. Under the hood, four different engines will be available. The entry-level 1.25-liter petrol produces 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque, which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 13 seconds and hit a top speed of 167 km/h (104 mph). Moving up the 1.4-liter petrol rewards owners with 109 PS (80 kW / 108 hp) and 136 Nm (100 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra power, the dash from 0-100 km/h takes 11.5 seconds and the top speed is 181 km/h (112 mph). On the diesel side, there's a 1.1-liter three-cylinder that develops 82 PS (60 kW / 81 hp) and 94 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque. This anemic engine means 0-100 km/h clocks in at 16.4 seconds and the top speed is 161 km/h (100 mph). If you don't have all day to wait around, the 1.4-liter four-cylinder churns out 90 PS (66 kW / 89 hp) and 216 Nm (159 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 14.2 seconds and top out at 171 km/h (106 mph). The five-door Rio will go on sale later this year, while the three-door variant will be launched in early 2012.





MINI Rocketman concept - exterior design
MINI has unveiled the Rocketman concept which draws inspiration from the original 1959 Mini. It measures a compact 3,419mm long, 1,907mm wide and 1,398mm tall. The overall design is a little busy, but the car has an attractive Bermuda grey body with exposed carbon fiber sections that hint at the concept's carbon fiber space frame construction. Furthermore, the Rocketman features a wraparound greenhouse, a glass roof (with optical illumination), LED headlights, projector-style taillights, and 18-inch lightweight wheels. No word on what powers the concept, but MINI hinted the Rocketman is capable of having an average fuel consumption of 3 L/100km (94 mpg imp / 78 mpg US).





Lotus Eterne 4-door Concept Paris Promo
Lotus has stuned the media with the Eterne four-door coupe unveiling at the Paris Motor Show today. Details are limited, but the car is based on 2014 Elite. This means power will likely be provided by a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 620 PS (456 kW / 612 hp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. A hybrid variant will also be offered and it will use a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) and, possibly, a Lexus-sourced transmission with two integrated electric motors. Set to go on sale in 2015, the Eterne will carry a base price of approximately £120,000. Stay tuned for more photos and details. http://www.worldcarfans.com/110093028740/lotus-eterne-four-door-sedan-surpr ise-reveal-in-paris





Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes. This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on 1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders*** Stockholm, Sweden. A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police. At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace. At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a chopper were involved in this chase. A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped with a Racefit Growler Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
