A German-flagged container ship headed straight towards shore and
briefly ran aground in Hong Kong on Sunday afternoon (April 6, 2014).
The 192.5-meter-long Hansa Constitution was travelling along the busy
East Lamma shipping channel when it suddenly veered off course.
The Hong Kong Marine Department said the ship's main engine broke down.
People familiar with the shipping industry say the captain and Hong
Kong maritime authorities decided to the best course of action was to beach
the vessel to prevent it from colliding with other ships on the busy
The crew dropped anchor at the last minute, making loud screeching
noises, to slow Hansa Constitution as it headed straight towards the sea
wall outside the University of Hong Kong sports grounds in Pok Fu Lam.
The ship ground to a halt at around 15.22 local. It then slowly
reversed, as Marine, police and fire services rushed to the site. It was
eventually towed free. No one was injured.
The ship was travelling from Yokohama in Japan to Chiwan port in

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG action
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Automotive fascination and high-tech at the
highest level: the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which is due to be launched
in spring 2010. This Gullwing model captivates with a purist design,
intelli-gent lightweight construction and superior handling dynamics, and
is bound to cause a sensation in the super sports car segment. The new SLS
AMG is nothing short of a masterpiece by Mercedes-AMG GmbH. As the first
independently developed vehicle, the super sports car is the highlight in
the company's more than 40-year history. It not only takes AMG, the
perform-ance brand within Mercedes-Benz Cars, into a new era, but also
demon-strates development expertise of the very highest order.

Mercedes Benz SLR Commercial "It's for real"
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an Anglo-German sports car jointly
developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built jointly in
Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.
Daimler AG, owner of Mercedes-Benz, also owns 40% of the McLaren Group.
Due to the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined
arrangement and its driving characteristics lead some commentators to
classify the SLR McLaren as a GT whose rivals can be considered to be e.g.
the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and Ferrari 599 GTB.
It is the fastest automatic transmission car in the world. SLR stands for
"Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing). Mercedes-Benz has stated
that they will build 3500 SLRs in a span of 7 years, with an annual
production of only 500 cars. The car's base price is GB£300,000 (approx.
US$495,000 or €475,000, c. 2007).
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR of
1955, based on the W196 F1 car, yet named after the road-going 300SL
Gullwing. On 4 April 2008, Mercedes announced they will cease production of
the SLR. The last of the coupes rolled off the production line at the end
of 2007 and the roadster version is due to be discontinued in early 2009.
The brake discs are carbon-ceramic and provide better stopping power and
fade resistance than steel discs when operating under ideal working
temperature. Mercedes-Benz claims these discs are fade resistant to
1200°C. The front discs are internally vented and 370 mm in diameter. 8
piston calipers are used. Rear discs are 360 mm in diameter with 4 piston
calipers. During wet conditions the calipers automatically skim the surface
of the disks to keep them dry.
To improve braking performance there is an automatic air brake, when
engaged the rear elevation angle of the rear spoiler is set to 65 degrees.
The additional rear downforce in addition to the markedly increased
aerodynamic drag increases peak deceleration ~25%.
The SLR features active aerodynamics; there is a spoiler mounted on the
rear integral air brake flap. The spoiler increases downforce depending on
its angle of elevation (angle of attack). At speeds above 95 km/h the
spoiler/brake automatically raises to 10 degrees (15 in 722 edition), when
demanded via the driver's switch, the elevation can be increased to 30
degrees (35 in 722 version) for increased rear downforce, at the cost of
increased steady state drag.
The SLR McLaren sports a hand-built 5.4-litre, supercharged V8 engine.
The SLR sports a 232-kilogram (512 lb), hand-built, 5.4-litre (5439
cc/331.9 cu in), supercharged, all-aluminum, SOHC V8 engine. The cylinders
are angled at 90 degrees with three valves per cylinder and lubricated via
a dry sump system. The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore and stroke
is 97 millimetre (3.82 in) and 92 millimeters (3.62 in), respectively. The
Lysholm-type twin-screw Supercharger
produces 0.9 bar (13 psi) of Boost,
the turbine rotates at 23000 revolutions per minute, and the air is cooled
via two Intercoolers. The
engine generates a maximum power of 626 PS (617 hp/460 kW) at 6500
revolutions per minute and a maximum torque of 780 newton-metres (575
ft·lbf) at 3250 revolutions per minute. 2003 models were leaving showrooms
at 616 bhp (459 kW/625 PS) and now are slightly increased to 626 bhp (467
kW/635 PS) .
Unlike most of its contemporaries, its engine is front-mid mounted. McLaren
took the original concept car designed by Mercedes and moved the engine 1
metre (39.4 in) behind the front bumper, and around 50 centimetres (19.7
in) behind the front axle. They also optimized the design of the center

Mercedes Benz C63 AMG Commercial
DaimlerChrysler introduced a new generation of the C-Class on January 18,
2007 and displayed it in the 2007 Geneva Auto Show. Sales started on March
31, 2007 in almost all European countries. The new vehicle has an extended
wheelbase and tracks, a stiffer bodyshell and a design inspired by the most
recent S-Class and some hints from the CLS-Class. The model has three
levels of equipment - Classic, Elegance and Avantgarde. A high performance
AMG version with a 6.2 L engine followed in September 2007, labelled C 63
AMG with 457 PS (335 kW)to rival the Audi RS4 and BMW M3. The Classic and
Elegance lines retain the traditional Mercedes-Benz radiator grille, with a
three-point star bonnet emblem. The Avantgarde line has a grille similar to
that on Mercedes' sport coupe models, with two horizontal bars and a large
centre-mounted star. In the UK the Classic line is known as the SE and the
Avantgarde line is known as the C-Class Sport, and comes with an AMG
bodykit, and AMG alloy wheels as standard. The North American version is
slightly different, as the Classic model is dropped. The Elegance is known
as the C-Class Luxury and the Avantgarde wearing the AMG sports package is
known as the C-Class sport. Both lines have an additional amber light in
front of the front wheel well. New saloon and estate versions were
announced in 2007, while the CLC-Class Sportcoupé will remain based on the
W203 chassis. There will be an increase of component-sharing with other
Mercedes' models, namely the redesigned E- and S-Class, as well as the
upcoming GLK-Class compact SUV. One of the most technological breakthroughs
of this car is a special system exclusive to this class, named 'Agility
control' package. This is an innovative system, which through its unique
concept provides drivers with excellent agility and the traditional,
luxurious Mercedes ride quality. It achieves this feat through a complex
hydro-mechanical set up, which constantly analyses road conditions and
driving 'habits', resultantly it adjusts damper & suspension settings
acordingly to provide the driver the best possible balance between ride
comfort and agility. To take things still further , there is even an
'Advanced agility control' package drivers can opt for, this system is an
upgrade to the standard one, offering a 'sport' mode button. The 'Advanced
agility' package is a first for the C-class, and will be seen in future
models, as the GLK.
Versions of the car are available with a choice of rear- and all-wheel
drive (in the latter case an improved version of the 4MATIC system, not
available in right-hand drive format), along with a variety of four and
six-cylinder engines (and a 6.2 litre V8 in the C 63 AMG). Engines are the
straight-4 M271 and V6 M272 petrol engines, straight-4 OM611 + OM651, and
V6 OM642 Diesel engines. Six-speed manual transmissions are standard on all
models (except the C 350), with the 7G-Tronic seven-gear automatic
transmission available for six-cylinder engines (7G-Tronic is available for
C 230K, C 280, C 300, C 320 CDI and standard for C 350) and a five speed
automatic transmission available for the four cylinder models. In the
United States, the C 300 Luxury and C 350 Sport are only available with the
7G-Tronic transmission, and the C 300 Sport comes with a six-speed manual
transmission, and the 7G-Tronic automatic transmission as an option.
The development of the W204 C-Class involved the use of a "digital
prototype", which put a 2.1 terabyte digital replica of the car through a
15 million mile road course. This is an industry first which allowed for
crash testing and more, before a physical prototype was actually
The C 63 AMG is reportedly the first AMG Mercedes designed from the ground
up for performance, as compared to previous AMG cars which were more or
less focused on the engine. The C 63 has a revised front end architecture
that is taken from the CLK 63 AMG Black series. The revised 7-speed
automatic transmission now has three shift modes - Comfort, Sport and
Manual - with the last one running with the converter locked allowing the
driver to hold the engine at the rev limit. The ESP can now be completely
turned off, interfering only under heavy braking. The car also has the
quickest, most responsive steering of any Mercedes to date. Car and Driver
recently tested the car and got a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds; a 0-100 mph
time of 9.2 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.3 seconds at 116 mph (187
km/h). The top speed is electronically limited to 151 mph (243 km/h). This
makes the C 63 the fastest production 4-door sedan in the world in terms of
The 2007 Mercedes-Benz C Class was awarded "Car Of The Year" in Australia
by Australian Motoring Magazine "WHEELS", edging out the Ford Mondeo and
Mazda 2 for the award. It was also awarded "Executive Car Of The Year" by
Top Gear Magazine for the 2007 Top Gear Awards.
