Audi E-Tron will go to a Serial Production

Representatives of company Audi have confirmed that they will exhaust the first Electric Super Car E-Tron. However, this model will appear on sale only in 2012, and its circulation will make only 1000 copies. Will cost how many Audi e-tron while, naturally, it is not informed, but nobody hides that it will be the most expensive serial Audi for all history of existence of the company.

Let's remind that the premiere concept e-tron has passed in September of this year on a motor show in Frankfurt. Electric super car was at this exhibition one of the most interesting exhibits. Still, after all this car is set in motion by four electric motors (one on each wheel) which eat from the litievo-ionic accumulator battery located behind seats and having liquid cooling. Total capacity of motors in peak reaches 313 horsepowers, and the size of the maximum twisting moment and is at all magnificent. Already from zero "turns" cursors in the sum give out attention! 4500 Nm.

Thanks to such indicators! A coupe from a place to 100 km/h dispersed all for 4,8 sec only. Maximum speed could be and above, but developers have decided to limit it on a mark of 200 km/h. On high speeds too much energy leaves on overcoming of aerodynamic resistance and resistance. All-wheel drive e-tron possesses the expressed rear-wheel habits as 70 % of pull-rod almost always are necessary on rear wheels.

Also was not a secret that the car will receive name Duster. And, nevertheless, occurrence of official photos has caused a great interest.

Beautiful Duster to name difficult. The car at the Romanian designers has turned out any gloomy, but, probably, they and achieved it. After all for off-road cars similar appearance – the blessing. Especially when target audience are men. However, it is necessary to tell at once that high-grade off-road car Dacia Duster nevertheless is not. Yes, it will have an all wheel drive system and a road gleam in 200 mm. But thus the car will do without a powerful frame, and blocking of differentials here too will not appear (after all at the heart of Duster the platform from Logan) lies. Besides, Dacia will begin release and budgetary versions with a drive gear only on one shaft.

Well and under cowl Duster will start to put well familiar to us on model Logan the gasoline engine in volume of 1,6 l (110 h.p.). Also there will be a 1,5-litre diesel engine in two versions: 85 h.p. and 105 h.p. Base complete set Duster will appear not too rich (but silly to expect updates from such cheap off-road car).

It is interesting that is primary Volkswagen Amarok, the pickup will be called so, first must bet shown only in January, 2010 during start of rally Dakar - Amarok will represent itself as there an escort car of command Volkswagen.

Apparently, at first Amarok will be sold in more comfortable version with a double cabin (the length of the car will make 5250 mm), however, in 2010-2011 there should be more accessible cars with an unary and "one-and-a-half" cabin (in the latter case will be two doors, but in interior it will appear nevertheless two rows of seats).

Americans have made unique Chevrolet Camaro

In the USA such cars as Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro became for a long time cult and in public favourite cars. A success basis – bright appearance, sports character and the small price. And to remain not noticed in similar muscle car is impossible. But what to do, when it would be desirable to possess the favourite car, but not such, how at others? Correctly, it is necessary to go to one of numerous tuning studio. For example, in Fesler-Moss.

Though they and perfectly know it and will suggest to finish cardinally yours Chevrolet Camaro SS. However, besides the car will ask for the works exactly $110 000. Or $140 000 if you do not have car. If the similar sum does not confuse you, Fesler and Moss will start business. Then, after the lapse of two weeks, you can learn the car only in general, so to say, lines. For what it is necessary to give such, frankly speaking, considerable money?

First, Fesler and Moss "will get up" the car in a new body from composit materials that will give to the car even more an aggressive look. Secondly, implant in under cowl space 6,2-litre "eight" LS9 capacity of 640 h.p. (819 Nm) borrowed at Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 together with which six-step "mechanics" will work. Well and still will finish something «on a trifle» - there will be the strengthened brakes, the modernised exhaust system, the underestimated ground clearance and 22 inch disks. And the most important thing, on the car will stand the tablet with serial number and the modest inscription saying that "circulation" of a child of Fesler and Moss will make only 60 copies that allows to carry Fesler-Moss Camaro SS to collection rarities. But there is more to come. As car habits have strongly changed, to the owner as a bonus will suggest to pass two-day training on a racing line. And it is correct, after all to search for mutual understanding with similar "racer" to begin with better on a racing track, instead of on roads of the general user. As they say, from a sin far away.

Unfortunately, Americans have told nothing about dynamic characteristics of the super car. But it is possible not to doubt that they managed to make the uncommon car. And the main thing, rare.

It is expected that besides present off-road cars H2 and H3 in some years in the market will appear Hummer H4 and even Hummer H5.

That will represent these cars while to tell difficult. But it is obvious that "four" and "five" will be less present H3. That is it is possible to assume that H5 it will appear rather compact off-road car which begins to compete with Jeep Wrangler.
