Super Bentley! Bentley Supersports @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show

MORE GENEVA AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/2010bentleycontinentalsupersports.html Just when you thought you'd heard the last of E85 ethanol, here comes Bentley with its alcohol-burning 2010 Continental Supersports. In this one way, this 621-horsepower matte-white terror is like a Chevy Tahoe. Otherwise, not so much. Now we suppose that if you've got the jingle to buy an example of this fastest and most powerful Bentley model ever, then you could probably afford to have someone deliver the E85 by the tanker truck to your garage. Otherwise, it won't be easy to find the stuff. Fear not, as the car's W12 engine will make the same horsepower running on regular old premium gasoline, too. Either way, Bentley says that while the Supersports will be available worldwide this fall, cars for the North American market won't be FlexFuel capable until the summer of 2010, following regulatory approval. The first several hundred U.S.-market cars will officially be gas only. Why did Bentley bother with all the ethanol stuff if the car can make the same power on gas? It's the first step in Bentley's plan to make its entire range compatible with renewable fuels by 2012. This should reduce the CO2 output of its fleet and deflect at least a little of the criticism that comes when you produce cars that deliver only 13 mpg in the city. Anyway, the car — it's fast. The company estimates it'll do zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds and top out at 204 mph. That's no small feat for a vehicle that weighs 2.5 tons. The Speed model, says Bentley, will get to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and top out at 202 mph. Though the Supersports has gone up in power with its turbocharged 6.0-liter W12, it has gone down in weight, dieting 243 pounds compared to the now totally slow-in-comparison Continental GT Speed. That's thanks to lightweight 20-inch wheels, standard carbon-ceramic brakes (which, despite being utterly massive at 16.5 inches across up front and 14 inches in the rear, save 44 pounds compared to conventional brakes), lightweight carbon-fiber sport seats and a few other things. Despite all of this, the Supersports will weigh in at about 5,000 pounds. The ZF six-speed automatic has been modified to shift 50 percent quicker than the standard box. The all-wheel-drive system now comes with a rear-biased torque split (40 percent front/60 percent rear compared to 50/50 for the Speed model). The suspension has been retuned with new dampers and antiroll bars. The standard Continental body has been modified to accommodate a 2-inch-wider rear track and suck 10 percent more air into the engine. The Supersports comes with four unique paint options — two pearlescent and two matte — and is finished with "smoked steel" trim in place of chrome. Inside, the Supersports two-seater is slathered with carbon fiber and Alcantara synthetic suede trim. Pricing hasn't been set for the Supersports yet, but figure about $250,000 or a little more than 20 percent higher than a Speed model. Bentley reckons it can sell about 250 Supersports at this price in the U.S. in a year.

Bank-Breaker! Aston Martin One-77 @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/astonmartinone77new s.html eased to within an inch of its life on the Web, the Aston Martin One-77 finally made its first official public appearance at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, providing a rolling showcase of supercar technology. Said to be inspired by DTM racing, the One-77 is described immodestly by Aston as the company's "definitive sports car." According to Chief Executive Ulrich Bez, it is "the ultimate expression of Aston Martin." Still months away from production, the One-77 is about to commence durability and performance testing. Aston engineers are particularly keen to see how the new 12-cylinder engine, jointly developed with Cosworth, unwinds. The normally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 is designed to produce a whopping 700-plus horsepower, feeding the rear wheels through a new six-speed "robotized" sequential manual gearbox with paddle shifters. The performance targets are 0-60-mph acceleration in 3.5 seconds or less, and a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Underneath the stunning skin is a rigid carbon fiber tub, developed in cooperation with composite specialist Multimatic. The One-77 features double wishbones and adjustable shocks as well as carbon-ceramic brakes and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (255/35ZR20 front, 335/30ZR20 rear). One small perk that lucky owners will enjoy as part of the projected seven-figure price tag: As part of the delivery process, Aston engineers will set up the car's suspension to the owner's individual taste.





Essential: Infiniti Essence @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/genevainfinitiessen cenews.html Infiniti Essence @ Pebble Beach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8tQgM0Aweg More Articles: http://www.insideline.com Car Prices & Info: http://www.edmunds.com Twitter Feed: http://twitter.com Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/ins... Hi-Res Videos: http://www.hulu.com/edmunds-in side-line Yes, Geneva is a Swiss show, traditionally well attended by the Italian design houses and German tuners. But at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, a Japanese designer is the talk of the Palexpo — thanks in no small part to his new Infiniti Essence. Nissan's upscale brand would have us believe this sensational coupe concept is "the essence of Infiniti." In fact, it is the essence of Shiro Nakamura, Nissan's senior vice president of design, not to mention a glimpse into the future design direction of Infiniti. Nakamura's team has crafted a sleek two-seater with a panoramic glass roof that is all but devoid of ornamentation. Japanese cultural cues abound inside and out. The designers drew inspiration from, among other things, Japanese calligraphy, traditional lacquerware, even the kanzashi, a hairpin used by women when wearing a kimono. The aim, according to Nakamura, was "to merge all existing Infiniti design cues with fresh design language." The sinuous, sculpted shape is wrapped around a traditional front-engine/rear-drive sports car layout. But the Essence is hardly traditional in its powertrain, safety technology and even its post-modern minimalist cabin. Nakamura's team created a stunning asymmetrical cockpit with staggered seats, separated by a curving console that sweeps into the dash. The driver's "cocoon" is finished in black, while the passenger is swathed in red. The cabin is trimmed in leather, Alcantara and hand-painted wood and features chronometer-type dials, an aluminum gearshift knob, a red engine-start button and a flat-bottomed steering wheel flanked by paddle shifters. Nissan chose a powerful gas-electric tandem, configured as a parallel hybrid so the two power sources can work independently or together. The 3.7-liter direct-injection V6 is fitted with twin turbochargers and makes 434 horsepower, while the electric motor adds another 158 hp, providing total output of nearly 600 hp. Energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery pack. Advanced safety technologies include distance control assist, lane departure prevention, side collision prevention and back-up collision prevention. The pièce de résistance is a collaboration with Louis Vuitton — a bespoke three-piece luggage set that's fitted to the trunk of the Essence. Naturally, each piece carries the initials of the owner. Guess what "SN" stands for.





TT Pumped Up: Audi TT-RS @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=142446 Audi's big performance news for the 2009 Geneva Auto Show is the long-awaited launch of the TT RS, its high-output all-wheel-drive compact. Sadly, the car is "not approved for U.S. launch," according to Audi. The TT RS features a turbocharged 2.5-liter direct-injection five-cylinder engine rated at "far more than 300 hp," the company said. The car will rocket from rest to 60 mph in well under 5.0 seconds, with top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. The TT RS also will benefit from a number of chassis upgrades, including larger brakes. Audi, in its initial pre-show publicity blast, notes that the car will deliver "explosive acceleration, driving delight and unrivaled sound."





On a Rolls: Rolls-Royce 200EX @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/rollsroyce200exconc eptnews.html Rolls-Royce has officially announced it will unveil a near-production-ready concept sedan at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show next month. Called the 200EX — a name that recalls some of the British carmaker's early "experimental" prototypes — the luxuriously equipped four-door previews a new entry-level Rolls-Royce that will go on sale later this year. Known until now by its internal working code RR4, the new Rolls-Royce is expected to be priced to compete against upmarket sedans such as the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Holding firm to the strategy taken with its 100EX and 101EX concept cars — both of which have reached the showroom with little change, as the Phantom Drophead and Phantom Drophead Coupe, respectively — the 200EX is said to closely resemble the definitive production version of the RR4. "There will be some very minor difference, but what you see in Geneva is for all intents and purposes what we'll be bringing to Frankfurt later in the year," says Rolls-Royce's newly installed CEO Tom Purves, referring to plans to show its new model at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. As yet, there's no word on what model name the 200EX will receive. However, Rolls-Royce says it plans to resurrect a name from its past lineup. Among those rumored to be under consideration are Shadow, Wraith, Seraph and Spirit. Rolls-Royce designers have adopted a far less formal look for the 200EX than any previous model sporting the illustrious Spirit of Ecstasy. The exterior features many of Rolls' traditional design cues and boasts classical unadorned surfacing, but each element has been reinterpreted to give the new car a cleaner and more modern appearance than the imposing Phantom. Among the more flamboyant styling flourishes is a prominent grille, thin LED headlamps, a stainless steel hood, large chromed door handles, rear-hinged doors at the rear, a wide C-pillar and an angled trunk. The wheels are 20 inches in diameter, wrapped with 255/45 profile front and 285/40 profile rear tires. Describing the appearance, Purves called it a "modern execution of timeless Rolls-Royce elegance, breaking with some areas of tradition but retaining the core values. We expect the more informal design to broaden the appeal of the brand." These first official photographs don't provide any real comparisons in scale, but the 200EX is much smaller overall than the Phantom; its length, width and height are put at 212.5 inches, 82.9 inches and 61.0 inches respectively, making it 3.5 inches longer, 1.3 inches wider and 2.8 inches higher than the Continental Flying Spur. The new concept car's cockpit upholds Roll-Royce's long-held reputation for class-leading opulence, luxury and comfort with a sizable leather-trimmed cabin that offers seating for up to five adults. An upright dashboard boasts distinctive Art Deco overtures similar to those found in the Phantom. It is adorned with a combination of classical wood and chrome, offset with etched glass and piano lacquer trims. The 200EX rides on a modified version of parent company BMW's latest large-car platform as found beneath the new 7 Series, featuring unique wheelbase and track measurements. Rolls-Royce is holding back on revealing further specifications until closer to its production sibling's launch later this year. The only information released so far confirms that the upmarket sedan will be powered by a "new-generation V12 engine." Details remain scarce, but insiders at Rolls-Royce headquarters point toward a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter direct-injection gasoline unit developing close to 500 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. It will drive the rear wheels through a new eight-speed automatic transmission developed in conjunction with German transmission specialist ZF. The production version of the 200EX will be assembled at the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood, England — the same site responsible for the Phantom. A recent refurbishment has resulted in the addition of a new assembly line and an expansion in operations to handle an expected increase in volumes from today's 1,000 cars up to around 4,000 by 2012.
