Kia Picanto 3-door 2012 exterior, interior.
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.
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.

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."

Ich kann nur sagen es war unbeschreiblich!
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.
Lamborghini Gallardo Sound + ACCIDENT!!
I have filmed a friend's Lamborghini Gallardo during a trackday event.
Video shows first some track scenes. At the end of the day my friend left
the racetrack. The main road was very tight, there was another car coming
from the opposite way. Worried about scratching his car against the other,
my friend moved too much on the right side of the road and half of the car
fell down. Actually, we were in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere.
It was a pretty difficult situation to move the car. Before all the haters
starts to write negative comments about my friend.. it's just an accident,
it could happen to everyone.

2011 Jaguar XJL/XJL Supercharged Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour/Review
I also have a brief start up and Exhaust clip at the end of this video of the
2011 XJL Supercharged! I chose to do the video on this
caviar/truffle/ivory color combo because I thought it really accentuated
the design and style of this all new interior, which in my opinion is
breath taking. Fantastic craftsmanship and comfort and all the features
one could ever want, all wrapped up in a new body that's long, sleek yet
dominating and soft at the same time. I trust you all will be just as
impressed with the newest generation of the XJ line as I was! In this
video I give a full in depth tour of the all new 2011 Jaguar XJL + brief
comparison of the XJL Supercharged. I take viewers on a close look through
the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing
of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also
show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds
under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give
others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
