2015 Mercedes - Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept - Official Promo
On November 20th 2013 (local time), the inaugural model in the Vision Gran
Turismo project, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, was revealed at
the Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Center near San Jose,
California. The producer of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, was
in attendance, sharing the satisfaction of witnessing the unveiling
together with the Mercedes-Benz staff involved in the creation of the car.
Following this, the AMG is scheduled to be transferred to Los Angeles where
it will be displayed at the Mercedes-Benz booth on the opening day of the
LA Auto Show.
In collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz has come
up with a striking sports car that features gullwing doors and some
seriously sensuous curves. The image the design team had in mind was that
of a big cat closing in on its prey, and this has been realised in both the
elegance and sense of agility and alertness in the completed model. The
shape of the front grille is modelled on the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL,
the winner of the Carrera Panamericana in 1952, a race famed for its
unforgiving conditions. However, the grille differs from the classic model
in being made entirely from LEDs, capable of lighting up independently in a
variety of patterns .
The body is distinctive chiefly for its impressive curves and powerful and
prominent fender, both of which follow firmly in the tradition of
Mercedes-Benz's impeccably proportioned sports cars. The car pays homage to
classic competition cars with features that include the use of trigger
catches to fasten both the bonnet and rear hatch. It is also equipped with
a moveable rear wing. The chassis is made from an aluminium spaceframe with
carbon fibre components, meaning that its weight is reduced to 1385kg (3053
lbs. ), significantly lighter than normal for this type of sports car.
Underneath its elongated bonnet, the AMG has an optimised 5.5 litre V8 twin
turbo engine, boasting an output of
585ps (577 BHP) with a substantial torque of 800N-m at 2000-4500 rpm. With
its ultra-light body, the AMG achieves a power-to-weight ratio of
2.37kg/ps. The sound designers for the AMG have come up with an elegant
specially-tuned Exhaust note for the
eight independent Exhaust pipes which
have been integrated into the tail lights. Rival drivers will hear this
strong and distinctive engine roar as the AMG races past them.
With the worldwide release of Gran Turismo 6 on 6th December , you will be
able to get behind the wheel of this incredible car, a revolutionary model
that introduces Vision Gran Turismo to the world*. Get ready to experience
the sports car of the future, brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.
Vision Gran Turismo is a project where the world's leading automobile
manufacturers develop exclusive concept cars for fans of Gran Turismo. The
AMG is the first in a series of audacious and ambitious models that you
will not want to miss.

Waldorf Nomad in steel
You may have heard something different, but this is my version of hearsay
and innuendo. At some time in the past this project (Cormad) was designed
and built by someone who was less than professional in their approach to
how they fabricated and built custom cars. The original GM concept vehicle
was built from Nomad drawings and a donor Handyman 2-door wagon and
constructed very quickly. Some say the Nomad roof, C pillar and doors were
metal with the rest of the body done in fiberglass. The Comad was built
the same way with a fiberglass front end, but its been discarded in favor
or steel. Since more than one will be built, wooden bucks have been
designed and used to facilitate the panel-beating. This version also has
been sectioned 3 inches through the middle of the body.
The frame uses modern C-4 components for both the front and rear
suspension. The first example uses a LS-7 motor, but later models can have
any type of motor you want. The plan is to build 5 Waldorf Nomads and 5
Corvairs (fastback model) with the next versions built out of aluminum
instead of steel. Its real, its here and if youre lucky it should be done
sometime before summer.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays
for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be
delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery,
vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of
any new vehicle launch.
The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support
production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million
for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame
in-house for the first time.
The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful
standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460
lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465
lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system. It is also the most capable
standard Corvette ever, with Z51-equipped models able to sprint from 0 to
60 in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve
1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.
Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette
Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market --
an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other
car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than
29 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car,
which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June
Pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe starts at $51,995 including
destination. The Convertible is priced at $56,995 including destination.
Production of the Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.
