Cadillac Racing with CTS-V Coupe testing at Sebring
Cadillac is turning their attention to racing as the company has just
wrapped up testing of the new CTS-V Racing Coupe.
Set to enter competition on Saturday, at the Streets of St. Petersburg, the
CTS will battle other contenders in the highly-competitive Sports Car Club
of America World Challenge GT series. It will be driven by Johnny O'Connell
and Andy Pilgrim, who are no strangers to racing as O'Connell is a
three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series and Pilgrim claimed
victory in the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class.
As for the car itself, it features an aerodynamic carbon fiber body and a
supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 535 hp (399 kW / 542 PS).
While this is 21 hp (16 kW / 21 PS) less than the standard CTS-V Coupe, the
car weighs 1,000 pounds (454 kg) less than the production model.
According to O'Connell, "The CTS-V Coupe racecar has been very nimble
during testing and seems to brake very well. I not only expect it to do
well on a street circuit, but everywhere we compete."
2012 Audi A6 promo
Essentially a sedan version of the A7 Sportback, the redesigned A6 has a
conservative design that features LED taillights, an integrated trunk-lid
spoiler, a dual Exhaust system, and
optional LED headlights. If that isn't expressive enough, the optional
S-Line package adds modified bumpers, a sport suspension, a faux rear
diffuser, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin offers additional interior room as the car's wheelbase
has been stretched to measure 2910mm long. While that is certainly nice,
we're rather impressed by the cockpit's fashionable styling and high-tech
goodies such as a 1,300-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system and MMI navigation
plus with internet connectivity.
Under the hood, five different engines will be available at launch. The
most efficient is a 2.0 TDI which has an average fuel consumption rating of
4.9 L/100 km (48.00 US mpg) and C02 emissions of 129 g/km. It produces 130
kW (177 PS) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, which allows the car to
accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and top out at 228 km/h (142
On the other hand, the new 3.0 TDI V6 produces 150 kW (204 PS) and 400 Nm
(295 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to dash from 0-100 km/h in 7.2
seconds, before topping out at 240 km/h (149 mph). With this particular
engine, expect an average fuel consumption of 5.2 L/100 km and CO2
emissions of 137 g/km.
Moving further up, a second version of the 3.0 TDI churns out 180 kW (245
PS) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. It lets the A6 sprint from 0-100 km/h
in 6.1 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The average fuel consumption registers 6.0 L/100km and CO2 emissions are
On the petrol side, there's a naturally-aspirated 2.8 FSI V6 with 150 kW
(204 PS) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to a multitronic
transmission, the engine allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in
7.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph). It consumes 7.4
L/100 km (31.79 US mpg) and emits 172 grams of CO2 per km.
Lastly, the 3.0 TFSI V6 cranks out 220 kW (300 PS) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft)
of torque. This enables the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and
hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). In terms of
efficiency, expect 8.2 L/100 km (26.68 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 190
If those options haven't tickled your fancy, Audi will eventually launch a
hybrid variant that uses a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0 TFSI petrol engine
and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor. Boasting a combined output of
180 kW (245 PS / 241 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, the car
accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and hits a top speed of 238 km/h
(148 mph). Owing to its mediocre performance, the car is expected to have
an average fuel consumption of 6.2 L/100 km (38 US mpg) and CO2 emissions
of 142 g/km.
The 2012 Audi A6 will go on sale shortly and German prices start at
Aston Martin DB9 Virage promo
Under the brights lights in Geneva, Aston Martin revealed the Virage - a
"new" 2+2 model which sits between the DB9 and DBS models in the Aston
With the mildly facelifted DB9 launched last summer, the Virage has us
scratching our heads as we contemplate why Aston is passing the Virage off
as a new model. Same kind of confusion also ensued when spy photographers
previously caught it doing rounds at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. We
didn't know know to make of it.
Regardless of how you slice and dice it, the vehicle is a DB9 with a new
more assertive look. On the outside of the Virage, which if you're into
anagrams also spells Viagre, you'll notice a One-77 inspired aluminum front
grille, new front bumper fascia, new fender side strakes with built-in LED
repeater lamps, side skirts and rear diffuser.
The Virage uses the same front mid-mounted 6.0 liter V12 producing 490 bhp
(365 kW/497 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque. The power plant is mated
to a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission through a carbon fiber
prop shaft and the gearbox is mounted transversely on the axle for 50:50
total weight distribution.
0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) clocks in at 4.6 seconds and top speed is 299 km/h
