► 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.
► NEW Lamborghini Veneno Roadster WORLD PREMIERE
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster made its public debut on board the Italian
naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour on 1 December 2013.
At an exclusive 'Italian evening' attended by authorities, clients, VIPs
and media, the limited edition super sports car, of which only nine will be
produced, was formally unveiled on the flight deck of the 240 metre ship
while docked in Abu Dhabi's Mina Zayed port.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is a fully road legal, open top car,
bringing the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype to the road, with
extreme design and breathtaking performance. The nine units will be built
during 2014, priced at 3.3 million euro excluding taxes.
With a maximum power output of 552 kW / 750 hp, the V12 Veneno Roadster
accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355
km/h. Shown in Abu Dhabi in the specially developed colour 'Rosso Veneno',
each client will be able to individualize the colour of his Veneno Roadster
to suit their personal preference.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was unveiled in the presence of His
Excellency Giorgio Starace, Italian Ambassador to the UAE and the Admiral
of High Seas Forces, Paolo Treu. Guests on board Nave Cavour enjoyed
hospitality from chef Corrado Corti of Italy's famous Hotel Splendido in
Portofino, who flew in especially for the occasion. Singer and actress
Elena Bonelli opened the event with the Italian national anthem; fashion
designer Giada Curti offered a tableau vivant of her creations with ten top
models. One of the happy few to sit in the Veneno Roadster was former
captain of the national Italian soccer team and 2006 world champion Fabio

► 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.
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.

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.

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!
