BMW Z8 with Alpina rims @ City Centre Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting]

BMW Z8 with Alpina rims @ City Centre Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting] The BMW Z8 was a roadster car produced by German automaker BMW from 2000-2003. It was given the E52 BMW model code. The Z8 was the production variant of the 1997 Z07 concept car, which was designed by Henrik Fisker at BMW's DesignworksUSA in Southern California. The Z07 originally was designed as a styling exercise intended to evoke and celebrate the 1956-'59 BMW 507. The Z07 caused a sensation at the '97 Tokyo Auto Show. The overwhelming popularity of the concept spurred BMW's decision to produce a limited production model called the Z8. There were 5,703 Z8s built, approximately half of which were exported to the U.S.[1] From concept to production The original Z07 had been designed with production in mind. As a result, practical and regulatory considerations necessitated very few changes for the production model. Nevertheless, the windshield of the Z8 was extended upward, and a larger front airdam was fitted. Both changes were implemented to provide aerodynamic stability and a reasonably placid cockpit environment. The four-spoke steering wheel of the concept car was replaced by a three spoke design. The hardtop was changed from a double-bubble form with a tapering faring to a single dome with a truncated convex backside. The concept's exotic driver's side helmet fairing was eliminated to allow easy operation of the power soft top. Despite these changes, the Z8 remained extremely faithful to the concept car. The side-mounted turn indicators were integrated into the side vents in a fashion that rendered them invisible until activated. The vintage simplicity of the interior was preserved by hiding the modern equipment under retracting panels. Complex compound curves were preserved through the use of an expensive MIG-welded aluminum space frame. The Z8 even retained the concept's five-spoke wheel design, albeit without the race-style center lug nut. Features The $128,000 car had an all aluminum chassis and body and used a 4.9 L (4941 cc) 32-valve V8, that developed 400 hp (300 kW) and 500 N·m (370 ft·lbf) torque. This engine, known internally as the S62, was built by the BMW Motorsport subsidiary and was shared with the E39 M5.[1] The engine was located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with 50/50 weight distribution. The factory claimed a 0--100 km/h (0--62 mph) time of 4.7 seconds; Motor Trend magazine achieved 0--96 km/h (0--60 mph) in 4.2 seconds. Road and Track measured the car's lateral grip at .92. Car and Driver magazine also tested the car and found that it outperformed the contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in three important performance categories: acceleration, handling, and braking. As with most BMW products, its top speed was electronically limited to 155.4 mph (250 km/h); the car's maximum top speed with an unlocked chip was 186 mph (299 km/h)[citation needed]. The Z8 included an innovative use of neon exterior lighting. The tail lights and turn indicators are powered by neon tubes that offer quicker activation than standard lightbulbs and are expected to last for the life of the vehicle. Every Z8 was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with rear defroster. Unlike many accessory hardtops, which are provided for practical rather than stylistic considerations, the Z8 hardtop was designed from the outset to complement the lines of the roadster. In order to keep the interior uncluttered, a number of convenience functions were integrated into multifunction controls. For example, the power windows and mirrors were controlled by a single instrument. Also, the center-mounted instrument cluster was canted slightly toward the driver. The displacement of these gauges to the middle of the dash was intended to offer an unimpeded view of the hood and the road ahead. In order to promote the Z8 to collectors and reinforce media speculation about the Z8's "instant classic" potential, BMW promised that a 50-year stockpile of spare parts would be maintained in order to support the Z8 fleet. Due to the limited volume of Z8 production, all elements of the car were constructed or finished by hand, thereby compounding the importance of ongoing manufacturer support for the type. The price point and production process allowed BMW to offer custom options to interested buyers. A significant number of Z8s with nonstandard paint and interior treatments were produced over the course of the four-year production run by BMW Individual, a division of BMW AG. As a Bond car The car was featured in the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough and in the games James Bond 007: Agent Under Fire and 007 Racing. In the film, it was sliced in half by a helicopter equipped with tree-cutting saws in Azerbaijan

2x Audi R8 4.2 V8 FSI (revs!) @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting]
2x Audi R8 V8 FSI @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting] The Audi R8[3] (Typ 42)[5] is a sports car with a longitudinally mounted mid-engine,[3][6] and uses Audi's trademark quattro permanent four-wheel drive system.[3][7] It was introduced by the German automaker AUDI AG, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group, in 2006. The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by AUDI AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH, and is similar to the Lamborghini Gallardo.[8] The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame,[3] and uses an aluminium monocoque which is built around space frame principles. The car is built by quattro GmbH in a newly renovated factory at Audi's 'aluminium site' at Neckarsulm in Germany.[3] In 2005, Audi announced that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new road car in 2007, the Audi R8, based on the Audi Le Mans quattro concept car, appearing at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show, and 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There was some confusion with the name, which the car shares with the 24 Hours of Le Mans winning R8 Le Mans Prototype (LMP). 6-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx described the R8 as "the best handling road car today".[9] The Audi R8 is used as a safety car in Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters and British Superbike Championship racing series. 4.2 V8 The Audi R8 was initially equipped with a 4.2 litre V8 engine. Specifically, it is an all-aluminium alloy 32-valve (four valves per cylinder) petrol engine,[3] utilising Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI),[3] and has a displacement of 4,163 cubic centimetres (254.0 cu in).[3] It develops a motive power output of 309 kilowatts (420 PS; 414 bhp) (Directive 80/1269/EEC),[3] and generates 430 newton metres (317 ft·lbf) of torque,[3] on 98 RON 'Super Unleaded' petrol. It is basically the same engine used in the Audi B7 RS4, but is modified to use dry sump lubrication system. This V8 is a highly reworked, high-revving variant from the existing 4.2 litre V8, but includes cylinder-direct fuel injection (Fuel Stratified Injection), and four valves per cylinder, instead of five (as used on the previous non-FSI variants). It also uses two chain-driven double overhead camshafts (DOHC) per cylinder bank, and utilises variable valve timing for both inlet and Exhaust camshafts. The transmission options are either a Lamborghini sourced six-speed manual gearbox with metal gate for the shift lever, or an Audi-developed R tronic[3] gearbox - which is a semi-automatic, without a traditional clutch pedal with automatic gears shifting mode.[13][6] These options are the same as those available on the Lamborghini Gallardo. A double clutch Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG), now badged by Audi as S tronic, is not available (as of April 2010[update]). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_R8_(road_car)





Combo: AM V8 Vantage & Jaguar XK-RS & Mercedes E63 AMG @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf
Combo: AM V8 Vantage & Jaguar XK-RS & Mercedes E63 AMG W212 @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting] Aston Martin V8 Vantage The Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage are a series of hand built sports cars from the British manufacturer Aston Martin. Aston Martin has previously used the "Vantage" name on high performance variants of their existing GT models, notably on the Virage-based car of the 1990s. The modern car, in contrast, is the leanest and most agile car in Aston's lineup. As such, it is intended as a more focused model to reach out to potential buyers of cars such as the Porsche 911 as well as the exotic sports and GT cars with which Aston Martins traditionally compete. Jaguar XKR-S Jaguar's new XKR-S supercat has quite a pedigree. With a top speed of 174mph and looks to match, it's the quickest Jag to go on sale since the legendary XJ220 supercar -- and the firm's fastest-ever coupé! Developed by a small team of engineers, the XKR-S benefits from a host of suspension modifications, plus uprated brakes. And the speed limiter has been removed from the 420bhp 4.2-litre supercharged V8, so the model can accelerate far beyond the 155mph cap Jaguar normally places on its cars. Only 200 examples will be available worldwide, with 50 in the UK. At £79,995, the Jag costs £9,000 more than the XKR on which it's based, so it's sure to be exclusive -- and has the looks to match. Every model is painted in Ultimate Black and fitted with new 20-inch forged alloys wearing Pirelli PZero tyres. A neat bodykit comprising a front splitter, rear spoiler and venturi-style lower rear bumper gives even more visual aggression. Those aero parts reduce drag and help to cut lift, making the new Jag more stable at high speed. Inside, XKR-S branding adorns the steering wheel and seats, while a revised instrument cluster features a fresh speedo to reflect the raised top limit. A Bowers and Wilkins stereo system has been specially tuned for superb sound quality.

With a 518 hp (386 kW) engine, the E63 can hit a top speed of around 200 mph (320 km/h) (electronic limiter off), and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.3 seconds.

Ferrari 360 Modena (RED with BLACK rims) @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting]
Ferrari 360 Modena (RED with BLACK rims) @ Königsallee, Düsseldorf [Autogespot - Carspotting] The Ferrari 360 is a mid-engine midsize two-seater sports car produced from late 1999 until 2005. The 360 replaced the Ferrari F355 and was itself replaced by the fairly similar Ferrari F430. For the 360, Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new all-aluminum space-frame chassis that was 40% stiffer than the F355, yet 28% lighter despite a 10% increase in overall dimensions. Along with the new frame was a new Pininfarina body styling that broke ranks with the last decade's sharp angles and flip-up headlights, replacing them with a rounded appearance that harkened to the 1960s. The new V8 engine, common to all versions, was only slightly larger and more powerful than the F355's at 3.6 litres and 400 bhp (300 kW) of power, but the lighter frame and added stiffness improved performance; the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration performance improved from 4.6 to 4.4 seconds. An engine replacement resulted in the V8 road model that followed, the F430 (internally referred to as the evoluzione or evo) which came out in 2004. Nine versions of the basic 360 were produced, of which six were road models: 360 Modena, a fixed roof two-door luxury sports coupe, available with a 6-speed manual or F1 electrohydraulic manual 360 Spider, a convertible variant of the Modena Challenge Stradale, an F1 electrohydraulic manual 360 Challenge inspired variant of a 360 Modena. 360 Modena F1 360 Spider F1 Three were factory race cars: 360 Challenge, a 360 F1 electrohydraulic manual stripped out circuit racing variant of the 360 Modena . 360 GT, a GT racing variant of the 360 challenge race cars, more extreme than a Challenge. 360 GT-C, based on the 360 GT with 360 CS parts to compete in the N-GT class. The ninth version, 360 Barchetta, was a one-off wedding present from Ferrari to Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo. The first model of the 360 to ship was the 360 Modena, named after the town of Modena, the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari. Its six-speed gearbox is available as a manual, or F1 electrohydraulic manual. The car went into production in 1999 and remained in production until 2005 when it was replaced by the F430. The Modena was followed by the 360 Spider, Ferrari's 20th road-going convertible. Other than weight, the Spider's specifications match those of the Modena almost exactly. The Challenge Stradale (or CS) was a later addition to the road line. It was essentially a lightened version of the Modena, dropping 110 kilograms and drastically improving its handling through optimizions such as uprated titanium springs (lowering unsprung weight), stiffer bushes (from 360 Challenge cars) and uprated rear anti roll bar (the same anti-roll bar as used on 430 Scuderia). Changes included larger 19" BBS wheels, the use of carbon fiber for the frames of the seats and mirrors, titanium springs which were also 20% stiffer, and Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brake disks. A variety of option allowed for further weight reductions, including replacing the leather interior with fabric, removal of the power windows and mirrors, and deletion of the stereo. Lexan side windows were available in Europe only. It was officially introduced in March 2003 at the Geneva International Motor Show and went into production shortly thereafter. The CS can be compared to Porsche's GT3 RS model in design approach and many magazines have placed them head to head in road tests. Jeremy Clarkson compared the two and chose the CS to be his favourite. But the Porsche was the faster of the two. [edit] Specifications [edit] Engine All models featured the same layout: No. of cylinders: 90° V8 F131 Bore & stroke: 85 by 79 mm (3.34 by 3.11 in) Total displacement: 3586 cm³ (218.8 in³) Redline: 8500 rpm For Modena, Spider, Modena F1 and Spider F1: Maximum power: 405 PS (300 kW; 400 bhp) @ 8500 rpm[1] Maximum torque: 373 N·m (275 lbf·ft) @ 4750 rpm[1] For Challenge Stradale: Maximum power: 425 PS (317 kW; 420 bhp) @ 8500 rpm Maximum torque: 373 N·m (275 lbf·ft) @ 4750 rpm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_360
