Ferrari 612 Scaglietti--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran

http://www.SupercarNetwork.com A beautiful Ferrari 612 Scaglietti presented by Chris Moran. This gorgeous Ferrari is furnished by our friends at D&M Motorsports. Presented by Chris Moran Twelve cylinders. Twelve. To the less-than-knowledgeable automotive enthusiast, that's how many V's this car has and it's twelve V's are derived from the monumental Enzo Ferrari. Yes, it's a V12 engine. In this humble man's opinion, anything with a 12-cylinder motor qualifies as exotic. Combined with the ultra-exclusivity of the 612 Scaglietti, this car is truly is Ferrari's everyday supercar. Let's go all the way back to the 12-cylinder Ferrari Testarossa. Launched in 1985, the Testarossa was a wildly designed, anything-but-conventional modern-day supercar. While Ferrari had been making great cars in the mid 80's, they never quite had the wow factor of the poster-worthy Lamborghini Countach. In the rear of the Testarossa sat the 4.9 liter Flat-12 engine. What's a flat-12? Sometimes called a "boxer", the pistons basically fire at each other on a 180 degree flat angle, hence the name "flat". The benefit is a lower center of gravity than a conventional v-style layout, aiding the handling in the process. The Testarossa ushered in a successful flagship model for Ferrari. With nearly 10,000 produced over it's 10 year run, it captured much of the marketplace in which it helped define. In 1992, Ferrari revised the Testarossa to become the 512 TR. Largely unchanged, there were minor refinements to the driveline and appearance, and a Boost in power from 381 to 421 horsepower. In 1995, the F512 M was created to commemorate the last year of the Testarossa. With a new front-engined replacement on the way, they made only 500 of the F512 M. This car is indeed a rare collectible. When the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti arrived on the scene, the first adjectives to describe the appearance were not very kind. It seemed somewhat bulbous in appearance, It's soft lines dampened its aggressive edge A very large car by Ferrari's standards, it's a real 2+2 configuration, with the front-engined V12 following the tradition of it's predecessor. Just to illustrate, the 612 Scaglietti is within 6 inches of the current CL550's length and has a four inch wider berth. That's no small car. Under the hood is a 5.8 liter V12, in this car it's mated to the 6-speed F1 manual. While single-clutch sequential transmission are pretty much a thing of the past, the Ferrari F1 setup always amazes me at how smooth and transparent it is. I had chance to experience the newest F1 "Superfast" in the F430 Scuderia. That's the best a single clutch with ever get. It's a two-pedal setup that is still a true manual transmission. You have a computer that manages the clutch, depending on the vehicle settings and driver inputs. To drive as a manual, you engage the right paddle located on the steering wheel to upshift, the left paddle to downshift. If you don't feel like shifting, press the "AUTO" button prominently displayed on the console. The computer will manage the shifting for you, so you can drive it as you would any other automatic sedan. Don't get me wrong, this setup will never be able to duplicate the silky-smoothness of a torque-converter in a traditional automatic, but it does a great job trying. Taking those virtues into account, add the most important ingredient, the 5.8 Liter 48-valve V12 engine. It's rated at 540 horsepower, making abundant torque in the low revs. This engine just wants to be run to it's redline all day long, as if it's not happy unless you are purposefully trying to spend the night in jail.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
An in-depth review of Mercedes' newest world-class supercar, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Hosted by Chris Moran. SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds. Height of an adult female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the critical dimensions of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the engine and the rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note this here because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is utterly bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what it represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes with bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its churning carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very antithesis of the overly complex and overweight half-million-dollar Mercedes SLR McLaren. "The SLS is a serious super sports car," says AMG chief of development Tobias Moers before taking a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car that still managed to weigh in at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572 pounds," he says, nearly 300 pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the 182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's mass in check is its entirely aluminum construction (save for that driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes says. The most distinctive aspect of the SLS's appearance is, of course, its roof-hinged gullwing doors, an homage to the iconic 300SL Gullwing. But AMG personnel took pains to point out that the doors are the only thing the SLS has in common with the 300SL. "We do not build a retro car at all!" AMG boss Volker Mornhinweg explains sharply. "In fact, we think it is the most advanced super sports car you can buy today." Those gullwing doors look spectacular. Unlike with the original SL, where one had to slide over a wide sill because of the space-frame structure underneath, it's easy to access the SLS's cabin. There's only one issue: Riders need long arms to reach the distant handles at the bottom of each door to pull them closed. The interior is simple and uncluttered, much like a current SL roadster's. While the car's structure is a pure AMG design, most of the parts, except for the shifter, are from the Mercedes bin. The instrument cluster is clear and easy to read, and we love the round HVAC vents. The center console has an aluminum finish, with carbon fiber an option. Press the starter button on the center console, and the now-familiar, AMG-designed 6.2-liter V-8 awakens with an angry yelp. The idle is deep, and the revs rise and fall race-car swiftly. Code-named M159, the engine is basically a reengineered version of the M156 unit that's fitted to AMG's "63" models. The M159 comes with an all-new magnesium intake, forged pistons in place of cast ones, and optimized tubular Exhaust headers. The engineers also switched from a wet sump to a dry arrangement, allowing the engine to be mounted lower to benefit the SLS's center of gravity. The maximum output of 563 horsepower is delivered at 6800 rpm, and peak torque of 479 pound-feet comes at 4750 rpm. In order to satisfy emissions standards—EU5, LEVII, ULEV—the Bosch ME 9.7 AMG engine management is set up to recharge the battery during deceleration. It's another way of trying to eke out decent fuel economy, which, based on Mercedes' European estimates, should equate to roughly 13 mpg city and 20 highway. -Car and Driver, November 2009
