New Lamborghini V12 Engine Assembly
Finally, some hard facts right from Lamborghini.
The Italian supercar-maker has announced details on its new V12 power plant
which is expected to debut in the upcoming Murcielago replacement recently
speculated to be named Aventador.
The new engine is a naturally aspirated 6.5 liter V12, known internally as
the L539, with a total output of 515 kW (700 PS) at 8,250 rpm and 690 Nm of
torque available at an engine speed of 5,500 rpm.
The new V12 was developed by Lamborghini at its Sant'Agata Bolognese
facility. It comes with a classic cylinder bank of 60 degrees and is
compact - measuring 665 millimeters tall, 848 mm wide and 784 mm in length.
It has a bore diameter of 95 mm and a cylinder stroke of 76.5 mm. The
nitride-hardened crankshaft weighs just 24.6 kg while the engine weighs a
total of 234 kg.
The 6.5 liter V12 also comes with two mufflers in a single casing - one
low-volume and the other high for that pitch-perfect Lambo sound.
Also newly developed to accompany this engine is the ISR (Independent
Shifting Rods) transmission. A 7-speed, single clutch gearbox with
exceptionally quick shift times due to the independent shifting rods -
Lamborghini claims almost 50 percent less than a standard dual-clutch
gearbox. The independent shift rods work similar in concept to a
dual-clutch - as one rod is disengaging the current gear, the second rod is
already engaging the next one.
Weight reduction is a theme here too, as the new gearbox weighs in at just
The transmission comes with three driver settings - Strada, Sport and Corsa
mode - with Corsa mode made for high-performance driving that also includes
a launch control function.
2014 Lotus Elite Paris Promo
The Lotus Elite has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.
On sale in 2014, the Elite is a 2+2 hardtop convertible which measures
4.60m long, 1.90m wide, and 1.32m tall. Styling is virtually identical to
the Eterne four-door coupe, but there are minor differences including
revised taillights and a sportier dual Exhaust system.
Power comes from a front-mid mounted 5.0-liter V8 engine which produces 620
PS (456 kW / 612 hp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the
Elite to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, before hitting a top
speed of 315 km/h (196 mph).
A hybrid variant will also be offered and it will use a Kinetic Energy
Recovery System (KERS) and a transmission with two integrated electric
motors. While the company is staying mum on details, Lotus said the hybrid
will have CO2 emissions as low as 215 g/km.
Pricing is expected to start at £115,000 which puts the Elite between the
£99,900 Maserati GranCabrio and the £124,000 Aston Martin DB9 Volante.
BMW 1-Series M Coupe teaser video from Paris
Well, the car made it to Paris but it didn't stick around for the show.
BMW has released these teaser photos of the 1-Series M Coupe posing rather
coyly on the Champs d'Elysées hiding mostly behind a black veil.
What we do get to see is the wider track this model is sporting as opposed
to the standard 1-Series. We also get a glimpse of the air vents on the
rear bumper, the outline of the undercover rear spoiler, and the previously
Under the hood we suspect a twin-turbo
inline 6-cylinder (the N54) dialed up to around the 350 PS (257 kW / 345
bhp) mark. The 1-Series M will likely come only with a 6-speed manual
The 1-Series M Coupe is slated for launch sometime in 2011.
