► 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.

► Corvette ZR1 returns to Nurburgring for new record (On Board)
Corvette returned to the world's most-demanding testing ground -- Germany's
famed Nurburgring -- and recorded lap times that rank among the fastest
recorded for a production car.
As detailed on video, the Corvette ZR1 recorded a lap time of 7:19.63, more
than six seconds faster than the
previous Corvette-best recorded in 2008. A lap video featuring the Corvette
Z06 will be released soon.
"Testing at the Nurburgring is one of the important methods we have to
validate our car in the toughest track conditions," says Tadge Juechter,
Corvette vehicle line director and chief engineer.
Measuring 20.8 km (12.9 miles) and including some 154 turns, the
Nurburgring's Nordschleife ("north loop") is widely considered the world's
most-demanding course. As was the case at Corvette's last test in 2008, the
car was driven by Corvette engineer Jim Mero and was a full production
model with no performance modifications. This test was to validate the
car's added performance technology coming to production later this summer
for the 2012 model year.
Corvette's improved performance for 2012 begins with the new, optional
Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires, which are available on
the two highest-performing models, the lightweight, 505-hp (377 kW) Z06 and
the maximum-performance, 638-hp (476 kW) supercharged ZR1. They are
competition-oriented tires, optimized for warm, dry conditions to increase
cornering and handling capability.
When combined with the Corvette's exclusive Performance Traction Management
(PTM) technology -- which manages torque delivery for maximum performance
-- the tires set new benchmarks for Corvette performance. Engineers
estimate an 8-percent gain in maximum lateral acceleration, to more than
1.1g, and improved braking distance.

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.

BMW i8 - For the pseudo-environmentalist billionaire in every one of us
I was thoroughly underwhelmed by BMW's latest concept on show at the
Auckland Museum today.
It has similar hybrid technology but a lower all-electric range than a
Chevrolet Volt, yet it costs $270,000 USD more.
Or think of it as an all-electric Tesla Roadster, but with less range, less
power, less acceleration, less style, less reliability - but with higher
emissions, and at twice the price.
The styling is a personal thing, but I found it too weird to gain
mass-acceptance. Perhaps thankfully, the finished product will look
Still, God only knows what market this car is aimed at. Even so, by 2014
(when this vehicle is ready for production) the competition will have
soared ahead with more practical, long-range all-electric vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model S is a visual masterpiece with an all electric
range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) - and full-scale production starts in

Citroen GT (the white car) + Citroen Survolt (the black/green car).
The Citroën GT is a concept car that has been developped by Citroën and
Polyphony Digital, the studio behind the famous game Gran Turismo. Indeed,
this car was meant only for the videogame, but the people liked it so much,
Citroën actually BUILT the damn thing! Apparently there were meant to be 6
Citroen GT in the world, for a price of 1,5 million euros. But they didn't
commercialize the concept, so I'm leaning rather towards a UNIQUE model
(although apparently 6 or 7 were made, but this is the only one we see out
there so...). This car has a V8 engine that gives 640 horse power to the
beast, giving it the opportunity to reach the speed of 330 km/h. I hope you
can hear the engine noise as much as I did in real life = it's really loud
!!! The Citroën Survolt (electric car) is also there! ;)
This was taken today during the Citroën Creative tour, at the Invalides in
Paris (métro invalides). This event will be held until sunday 26th (june
2011). So you still have time to go and see this beast on the road (test
drives at 11AM, 2PM and 5PM). Enjoy!
