Efficiency across the range
The Kia Picanto 3-door offers brand-new 1.0- and 1.25-litre Kappa-family
petrol engines, which deliver fuel economy of up to 67.3mpg with CO2
emissions as low as 99g/km. The larger engine is available with Kia's
EcoDynamics fuel-saving technology - an Intelligent Stop & Go engine
stop/start system - or, alternatively, with automatic transmission.
The three-cylinder 1.0-litre unit develops 68bhp and 95Nm of torque. The
1.25-litre four-cylinder engine is offered in three guises, all developing
84bhp and 121Nm of torque. In standard form it averages 60.1mpg. With a
four-speed automatic transmission fuel consumption is an impressive
53.3mpg. Finally, there is the EcoDynamics version with fuel consumption at
The same new running gear developed for the five-door Picanto also appears
on the 3-door. It features MacPherson struts at the front and a coupled
torsion beam axle at the rear, a layout which gives the best combination of
ride and handling while minimising intrusions into passenger and luggage
The new set-up ensures the Picanto is stable in a straight linear speed and
supple over typical British bumps. A stiff rear axle aids agility while
also contributing to the car's impressive stability and comfort.
Jay Leno Reviews Jaguar C-X75
Jay Leno became the first person outside Jaguar to drive the C-X75 on a
public highway, ahead of its North American Debut at the L.A. Auto Show.
Leno, a long-term Jaguar enthusiast, thinks that despite being so cutting
edge, it still looks like a Jaguar with certain key features like the
detail on the buttress behind the driver's head that is reminiscent of the
new XJ or the back end is having hints of E Type and even the D Type. If
the car is produced, it will be powered by twin turbines charging four

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has
unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for
TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max
action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original
Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based
Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design
Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor
and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre
behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours
project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those
that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said.
"We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd
Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to
styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the
April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take
body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design
Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version,
which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are
limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry
is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on
bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to
interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also
drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and
clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further,"
he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an
industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the
wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other
cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it
further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor
as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but
still brutal and tough."
Jaguar C-X75 Electric-Turbine Concept
The C-X75 hints at an exciting evolution of Jaguar's design language while
paying homage to some of its most admired cars of years gone by. Advanced
design features such as a ground-breaking propulsion system and active
aerodynamics allow for an elegantly simple fuselage section that remains
stable at very high speeds.

NEW Jaguar C-X16 Hybrid Concept with 375HP - U.S. Debut
All about guns at http://www.firearmsguide.com - Presentation of Jaguar
C-X16 on LA Auto Show 2011. This is U.S. Debut.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars
"C-X16 draws inspiration from both our sporting qualities and our current
leading-edge research into future powertrain technologies and consequently
delivers an irresistible proposition on both emotional and rational
The front-mounted supercharged V6 engine develops 375HP (280kW) and
332lb-ft of torque from a capacity of 3.0-liters. A modular development of
Jaguar AJ-V8, the all-new power plant points the way to the next generation
of highly efficient, powerful, gasoline fueled internal combustion engines.
The new V6 uses the same lightweight aluminum architecture as the
eight-cylinder engine with a high-pressure, die-cast block with
cross-bolted main bearing caps for increased strength and refinement. The
dual-cam, four-valve cylinder heads are constructed with recycled aluminum
to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing.
Optimized for bore and stroke, the V6 also features a second-generation
Direct Injection fueling system with a compression ratio of 10.5:1. An
electronic bypass for the sixth-generation twin vortex Roots-type Supercharger allows much more precise Boost control to reduce fuel consumption.
PERFORMANCE AND REFINEMENT
These advances in efficiency allow the V6 to produce a specific power
output of 125HP per liter. Allied to the performance-Boosting electric motor the result is
astonishing -- 0-62 mph (0-100kmh) in 4.4 seconds, a governed top speed of
186 mph and roll-on acceleration of just 2.1 seconds between 50 and 75 mph.
To ensure the power plant delivers not only the power but also the
refinement that Jaguar cars are famous for, the V6 features a patented
system of independently rotating balancer weights at the front and rear of
the engine. Anyone familiar with the smooth, powerful V8 will find that the
V6 shares all its power delivery and refinement characteristics, with of
course its own stirring soundtrack, while delivering improved economy and
emissions meeting SULEV 30 and EU VI standards.
The Jaguar C-X75 supercar concept introduced a game-changing approach to
performance cars with its range-extending hybrid powertrain. Now, the C-X16
represents a further avenue of research in Jaguar's mission to develop
sustainable powertrain technologies and bring them to production.
ADVANCED ALUMINUM ARCHITECTURE
The Jaguar performance ethos has its roots in the company's Advanced
Aluminum Architecture program, which focuses on agility, power-to-weight
and sustainability benefits. The Limo Green project, conducted in
association with the UK's Technology Strategy Board, combined this
lightweight construction with a highly experimental hybrid powertrain that
was further developed in the C-X75 supercar concept.
Fernando Alonso drives Ferrari 458 Spider
Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in
Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be
presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver
enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing
Horse - with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological
content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an "en plein
air" version - on the roads around Maranello.
Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high
performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is
able to deliver.

Jaguar XF Powertrain and Dynamics
Key among the enhancements to Jaguar XF is the introduction of the
2.2-litre AJ-i4D turbodiesel engine. The
unit features low-friction pistons and a water-cooled turbocharger to increase efficiency plus active
engine mounts and modifications to the sump and block to reduce NVH levels.
The result is not only Jaguar's most fuel-efficient engine ever, but one
which offers levels of refinement on a par with the previously-fitted
2.7-litre V6 diesel and all the performance expected of a Jaguar sports
saloon. Further refinement is assured on all models by the use of
additional acoustic shielding and the use of computational fluid dynamics
to smooth exterior airflow.
Power output is 190PS with an impressive torque figure of 450Nm to provide
the muscular performance expected of a Jaguar. Reaching 60mph in 8.0
seconds, the car will go on to achieve a top speed of 140mph. Nevertheless
the unit still manages 52.3mpg on the EU combined cycle - making it the
most economical Jaguar ever - and emits just 149g/km of CO2 and is Euro
Stage V compliant.
New 8-speed automatic
The engine is perfectly complemented by the all-new 8-speed ZF automatic
gearbox. Specifically adapted by our engineers for its first-time
application in a Jaguar, the transmission offers a host of benefits
including both improved acceleration and economy. Gearchanges are completed
in just 200 milliseconds - four times faster than the average human resting
heartbeat - while driver control is enhanced by the ability to perform
multiple downshifts using the paddleshift technology. The use of
lightweight materials ensures the overall weight remains the same as the
previous six-speed transmission, while improved pump design and gear
control elements increase efficiency. Standard on all Jaguar XF diesel
models, it reduces the CO2 emissions of the 3.0-litre V6 to 169g/km and
improves fuel consumption to 44.8mpg.
