Cult of The Turbo ★ Ferrari F40 vs. Porsche GT2 RS vs. Noble M600 vs. Jaguar XJ220 [EVO TV] [HD]
turbo Engines: Their legacy & ongoing refinement in some of the very best cars on the road... or track.
The Ferrari F40, the first 200mph & still perhaps the greatest ever Supercar for it's raw, purposeful & meteoric performance, built nearly a quarter of a century ago; incredible legacy, & still considered Ferrari's greatest ever creation, for very good reason. When the real electronic age is upon us, cars like the F40 will always speak volumes for what petrol cars truly meant in the growth of an industry & procession of engineering.
The Porsche GT2 RS, the latest marque of this incredible Carrera, top of the fleet, and blistering in all aspects. The power it puts out, with the artistic but unforgiving handling still asks today how Porsche have managed to take the rear-engined format THIS far, let alone 610hp from a Flat-6 as standard! 170hp+ more than from their GT3 RS. There's never been anything like an extreme "turbo'd" Porsche.
Noble have always built amazing cars given their bearing against the big manufacturers. But having done so well with their small cut they've been able to build a car from the ground up. Twin-turbocharged V8 engine built in house has given them a base never previously used, having V6 TT Ford Duratec engines in their former models. All their chassis prowess is on display as they've built a genuine supercar, able to compete with their targets & having a nice price advantage on them too.
The mercurial Jaguar XJ220; British supercars are usually lead via Aston Martin who hold most of the acclaim, but Britains greatest contribution could well be the XJ220. An incredible project at the time, extracting immense power & speed from an already reknowned V6 [Metro 6R4 Rally Car] with the aid of 2 turbochargers, and at the time having the fastest production car on Earth. Definitely a cult favourite and a car for the ages in all aspects of what makes a car memorable; the styling alone still seems post-modern against the sleek machines of today.
Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up

Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
