This is just one of the many cases of too much power in a FWD car. It was so hard to get traction, but it all worked out on the 4th try.
The Saturn Aura:
The Saturn Aura was introduced in 2005 for the 2006 model year to replace the Saturn L-Series. Saturn had never intended to use the Aura Concept name for production, but the name ended up sticking as a result of its popularity. The Aura's design was produced under several different names including the Fiat Croma, the Cadillac BLS, the Chevrolet Malibu, the Pontiac G6, the Opel Insignia, the Opel Signum, and the Opel Vectra, Saab 9-3. The Aura marked the first time since the 70's that GM's German division Opel had products sold in the United States. The XR trim of the Aura utilized the concept's 252 hp 3.6 L V6. The XE trim made use of a 3.5 L V6 which makes 219 hp. An eco minded trim named the Greenline uses a hybrid 164 hp 2.4 L I4. The Aura was discontinued after the 2009 model year due to the Saturn division's termination by GM.
Limit Pushing - 2011 Genesis 4.6L 0-60 Test
After testing this car 6 times over the course of two months we concluded
that the time is 6.3 seconds. The car had almost 2000 miles on it by the
last test. It was bought new and has not been tampered with. I invite
anyone with the same car to publish a video where this car makes a 0-60
time under 6 seconds.
Here is a video from another owner confirming our time:
The Hyundai Genesis:
The Hyundai Genesis was introduced initially as a concept car in the 2007
and released to the market in 2008. The Genesis is internally known as the
BH model and marketed as a "premium sports sedan". The Genesis is said to
have been Hyundai's first entry into the European dominated luxury arena
competing with the BMW 5 Series, the Mercedes E-Class, the Infiniti M, and
the Lexus GS. The Genesis has four engine options including a 3.3L V6
(limited markets), a 3.8L V6 (Korea and North American Markets), a 4.6L V8,
and a 5.0L V8 (2012 model). The Genesis is sold worldwide and still in
Limit Pushing - Volvo S60 Top Speed Test
This is the AMERICAN spec. The EUROPEAN spec is faster.
Back for the summer. I thought I might as well start things off with
something other than the usual 0-60 tests, and this Volvo really did
impress me with its acceleration. So it's back for a Top Speed Test.
The S60 was the first Volvo to leave behind the 80's and 90's boxy design.
Built on the P2 platform, the S60, along with many other models, followed
much smoother contour lines than previous models. The S60 was at first
powered by a 247 hp 2.3 liter turbo 5
cylinder engine but was then upgraded to 2.4 liters increasing the power by
ten horses. In 2003 the S60 R was introduced with a Haldex AWD system,
Brembo brakes, a 296 hp I5 engine and a 6 speed transmission. The S60
utilized a suspension system called Four-C which upon selected could adjust
the car's electronically controlled shock absorbers to Comfort, Sport, or
Advanced while adjusting up to 500 times a second keeping the car level on
Limit Pushing - 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 0-60 Test
We could not achieve a very quick 0-60 time in the automatic version of
this new Sonata. This is the second time this summer that a 2011 Hyundai
was slow due to the auto transmission. This car is very cool and stylish
for the price, but if you are planning on buying a new Sonata, go with the
2.0L SE version.
The Hyundai Sonata:
The Hyundai Sonata was introduced in 1985 as the Y platform. It was sold in
very few markets including Korea and Canada. The body of the first
generation Sonata was closely based on the Hyundai Stellar's design. Twenty
four years later the sixth generation was released for the 2009 model year
as the YF platform. The redesign of the sixth generation quickly became an
award winning design. The YF platform won awards from reviewers including
Consumer Reports, Ward's Auto World, Kiplinger's Personal Finance,
Cars.com, Consumers Digest, and several others. The sixth generation was
badged the i40 in Western Europe and the i45 everywhere else. The YF was
sold in three trims, the GLS, the SE, and the Limited. These trims made
use of a 2.4L I4 making 198 hp and a turbocharged 2.0L I4 making 274 hp. The YF
platform is still in production today.
Limit Pushing - 2003 BMW 330ci Top Speed Test
Before I say anything, I (as well as everyone else) am very aware of the
BMW 155 mph limiter. In the United States, The 2003 330ci was limited to
This was one of our more interesting videos that 1) was not edited well
since it was made when we were just starting out 2) lost a lot of its
popularity over time.
So here is the re-release, I hope everyone enjoys it!
The BMW 330ci:
The BMW E46 330 ci was the highest end 3 series you could buy (that wasnt a
M car). The 330 sported a 3.0 Litre inline 6 (235 Hp) . There are a select
few 330ci that have the smg transmission. The body styles of the 330 were
the coupe, convertible, and sedan. The optional performance package
stiffened up the suspension, lowered the car, added M rims, and whited out
signals and tail lights.
Das BMW 330ci:
Das BMW E46 330 Ci war das höchste Ende 3 Reihe, die Sie kaufen konnten
(das nicht a.m.-Auto war). Die 330 sported einen 3.0 Liter inline 6 (235
Pferdestärken) zusammengepaßt mit einem automatischen Senden mit 5
Geschwindigkeiten mit steptronic oder einem Handsenden mit 6
Geschwindigkeiten. Es gibt wenig 330ci ein auserwähltes, das das
smg-Getriebe haben. Die Körperarten der 330 waren das Kupee, das
Kabriolett und die Limousine. Das wahlweise freigestellte Leistungspaket
versteifte sich herauf die Aufhebung, senkte das Auto, addierte m-Kanten
und whited heraus Signale und Endstücklichter.
2007 Saturn Aura
This is segment three from The Fuel Show 11/19/06. The team review the
2007 Saturn Aura
Tiburon GT vs. Scion tC vs. Aura XR
Went to meet a guy to sell him something and decided to setup a run. He's
been wanting to run his 07 Scion tC (160hp) against mah Tibbay (172hp) for
a while now. I told a another buddy of mine and he wanted to bring out his
new DD to hav fun; an 07 Saturn Aura XR (254hp), very nice car.
All 3 cars are bone-to-tha-muthafkn-stock as can be. Hopefully I'll be able
to mod the Tib in the near future though. In case you can't tell from the
vid the Aura stays even with me from a 25mph roll (I pull 1/2 car a head
when we do a 30mph) and then pulls me by 1/2-1 car above 90mph. I also beat
the tC in every scenario, even the last one where I had a bad launch. Enjoy
the video (and yes that song was put in there for shits and grins cuz these
aren't 800hp Supras racing so they don't deserve cool music).
2009 Saturn Aura Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Saturn Aura. The Saturn Aura sedan points to a new direction for not only
the Saturn brand, but for General Motors. Like the Saturn SKY roadster that
preceded it, the Aura demonstrates that General Motors is putting renewed
emphasis on its passenger cars to fend off the ferocious competition of the
import nameplates. With some key help from GMs European operations, the
Aura is significantly more refined inside, outside and on the road than its
GM cousins. And it matches up well against such top competitors as the
Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Saturn Aura.
While Saturn is putting more excitement into its cars, it has committed to
maintaining its popular "no haggle" pricing policy. For more new car

Review: 2007 Saturn Aura
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.
During the next few years, a flood of new models will be arriving in Saturn
showrooms equipped with stylish European design, sporty driving dynamics,
and value-laden price tags. The gorgeous Sky roadster was the first of this
new breed, and now, something a bit more practical, the 2007 Aura sedan.
2007 Saturn Aura XE Road Test by Edmunds' Inside Line
With a void left by the L300 sedan, which saw the axe in 2005, Saturn needs
a strong player in the competitive midsize sedan segment in order to
justify its existence. It needs the new 2007 Saturn Aura to be a Mr. Wolfe.
