► BMW Vision ConnectedDrive
Via the Passenger Information Display, the passenger in a BMW Vision
ConnectedDrive vehicle can also take advantage of additional
functionalities provided by intelligent networking. As a co-pilot he can
evaluate information or address details for the navigation system received
online and forward them to the driver's instrument panel if necessary. Thus
the interaction between the driver and the passenger and networking with
the environment reach new levels. The Emotional Browser makes an even more
varied and individually-tailored choice of information possible. During the
journey, this system captures and filters additional information about the
environment through which the vehicle is currently travelling, in terms of
people, mood or location. This personal configuration can be set at the
start of the journey, but can also be adjusted on the road to be more or
less detailed, to suit individual requirements.
2013 Mercedes GL 350 BLUETEC [HD]
The market launch of the new GL-Class will provide customers with three
models to choose from: the GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC with V6 diesel engine, the
V8 petrol-engined GL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY, and the high-performance GL
63 AMG variant with V8 biturbo petrol
engine. The new models now come with a wide variety of equipment as
standard which was either not available, or only available at additional
cost, on the preceding model.
Prices starting at €60,900 (€72,471 incl. VAT) for the entry-level
Not to be overlooked as part of the added-value details fitted as standard
are also the new engines. They boast better performance with increased
output and torque, while at the same time enabling a reduction in
consumption levels of up to 20 percent to be achieved. As a result, the 190
kW (258 hp) GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC achieves an NEDC consumption of 7.4 l/100
km. The V8 petrol model, the GL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY, produces 320 kW
(435 hp) and powerful torque levels of 700 Nm while consuming just 11.3
l/100 km (NEDC).
► 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4S - DRIVING
As with the predecessor model, the new Targa generation comes in two
versions available exclusively with all-wheel drive. The 911 Targa 4 is
powered by a 3.4-litre, 350 hp (257 kW) flat engine. Equipped with the
Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Sport Chrono package, this model
accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and boasts a top
speed of 282 km/h. Its NEDC fuel consumption figures are between 9.5 and
8.7 litres/100 km, depending on transmission, which corresponds to a CO2
emissions level of between 223 and 204 g/km. The top model is the 911 Targa
4S, which delivers 400 hp (294 kW) from a displacement of 3.8 litres. This
model reaches a top speed of 296 km/h and, with the PDK and Sport Chrono
package fitted, accelerates in 4.4 seconds. Its fuel consumption fluctuates
between 10.0 and 9.2 litres per 100 km, depending on transmission, which
corresponds to a CO2 level of between 237 and 214 g/km. With these figures,
the model is on a par with the high standard set by the 911 Carrera 4
cabriolet models in terms of engine and road performance, as well as
efficiency. Both sportscars are certified for compliance with the Euro 6
The new 911 Targa models will be launched onto the market in May 2014. In
Germany, the 911 Targa costs EUR 109,338 and the 911 Targa S EUR 124,094,
inclusive of VAT and country-specific equipment in each case.

2011 Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow Concept
For the 2011 Los Angeles Design Challenge, which was seeking to find the
most spectacular new film car for Hollywood, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Sindelfingen (Germany) and
Carlsbad (USA), have joined the ranks of the screen-writers.
The designers at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad,
California have created a Hollywood-style homage for Mercedes-Benz to 125
years of innovation in automotive technology and design. The leading roles
are played by two high-tech characters which have been instrumental in
reconciling safety and stylish design in automobiles: the Mercedes-Benz
Silver Arrow cult racing car and crash test dummies.
The film "Silver Lightning" is set in the near future, in an age of
artificial intelligence. Two crash test dummies by the names of Hans05 and
Franz02 take on evil ruler Dr. Crash-Barrier to save their beloved Mercedes
Silver Arrow. They engage in an action-packed, nerve-jangling duel with the
ruthless battering ram before finally outfoxing him. The Mercedes-Benz
Silver Arrow Concept is a low-lying sculpture on wheels. A feat of
technical innovation is the diagonal, hubless roller which allows steering
in all directions. The futuristic Silver Arrow's proportions are
reminiscent of the legendary sports car from the late 1930s and the
Uhlenhaut SLR from the 1950s.
Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

2014 BMW i8 Review
Subscribe : http://www.youtube.com/user/Auto1News?sub_confirmation=1
What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
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.
