Eternal bonds, layers and rings of nature evoke timeless perfection in the intricate systems that comprise the symbiotic relationship between man and machine. Well the four rings of Audi represent such a thesis and have led to the manifestation of their first open top super car. The magnificence of the V10 engine puts the R8 V10 Spyder in the same conversation with Porsche 911 turbo, Aston Martin Vantage V12 and Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG. After all, Audi has dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans this decade, so why not bring that winning spirit to public roads?
2011 Audi A8 4.2 quattro: Big Love
Ask any car-guy on the street about Audi and the R8 will likely be the
first thing out of his mouth. Cool as that car is, however, it's not the
most significant model in Ingolstadt's lineup. That title belongs to the
A8, the brand's aspirational big sedan. While it won't deliver huge numbers
on monthly sales charts or boil the blood like its mid-engine
super-sibling, the A8 leads the way for the rest of Audi's range in terms
of technology, luxury and design; it's what cars like the A4 want to be
when they grow up. The all-new fourth-generation A8 upholds this role, as
we recently discovered around the Mediterranean resort town of Estepona,
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: World Record Car
Only a few moments ago the new Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a
new landspeed world record with 268 mph on Volkswagen Group's proving
ground at Ehra-Lessien nearby the Wolfsburg headquarters. The Super Sport
is a consequence of the further development of the classic exclusive
1,001-hp Bugatti Veyron
16.4, launched in 2005. This model offers a stunning set of specifications,
such as the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds, the extraordinarily
precise driving performance in bends and excellent stability when braking
Volvo's Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake
2011 Volvo S60
"City Safety" meets "chill city" as Volvo re-invents itself to allow safety
and style to co-exist exceptionally in their latest project. Calm, cool and
collective were my initial thoughts upon driving the all-new Volvo S60
sports sedan. It's a very chill vehicle that looks great while creating
emotional feedback and response. It's calm and confident due to the
standard cadre of technological safety enhancements. A perennial leader in
automotive safety advancements, Volvo is always raising the bar beyond
traditional expectations. Now imagine if every vehicle on the road came
standard with City Safety and Pedestrian Detection. Our kids, family and
friends would be much safer on the roads!
2011 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG "Glamour Footage"
Sometimes bigger isn't always better. For 2011, AMG is introducing its own
special version of a new Mercedes-Benz V8 engine that produces more power
while getting better fuel economy -- an astounding feat, considering that
increasing either one usually decreases the other. Replacing the normally
aspirated 6.3-liter V8 in the $138,875 S63 AMG sedan, the new
smaller-displacement 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 features twin turbochargers, direct fuel injection, start/stop
technology and multi-spark ignition and produces 536 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft.

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
