Ingolstadt has whisked the covers off the sportiest version yet of the A5 Sportback, the S5 that will be displayed for the first time at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The S5 Sportback uses the same 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine as the latest-generation S4 sedan that cranks out 333 horsepower and 440Nm (324.53 lb.-ft.) of torque between 2,900 and 5,300 rpm.

The 3.0 TSI engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission that puts power to all four wheels through Audi's a Quattro drivetrain while a sport differential, which variably distributes power on the rear axle between the rear wheels, will be offered as an option.

2009 Belgian GP Circuit Preview

The favourite track of many of the drivers is one of the few remaining from the old guard. While more and more high-tech circuits are filling the race calendar, a lap at Spa leads a good seven kilometres through woods, over hills and along public roads. And then there are legendary corners too, like the hairpin ‘La Source’ at the very start and above all the infamous ‘Eau Rouge’. It’s a spot that gets the drivers’ adrenalin pumping – year after year, lap after lap. At 300 km/h it’s down into a dip. As on a rollercoaster, the drivers are pressed into their seats, shoot down at top speed and then up the other side, seeing nothing but the sky.

Take ride on the circuit from the drivers' perspective!

BMW has shown super car Vision EfficientDynamics

BMW has published official photos new concept Vision EfficientDynamics. It shows to us how according to the Bavarian engineers, sports cars some will look in near future. To count that Vision EfficientDynamics will appear on our roads, it is not necessary. And it is a pity – the car looks is more tremendous, and not only during movement, but also at rest. After all here doors open on type «a side panel of a seagull» (usually such "counter" competitors from a Mercedes-Benz used). From technical point of view Vision EfficientDynamics too it is very interesting. In movement this sport car is resulted at once by three engines! The core is the diesel engine to which is helped by two electromotors. And a diesel engine here not idle time – it has only three cylinders and volume of 1,5 l. But thanks to the current technologies this motor gives out essential 163 h.p. and 290 Nm.

As to electric motors, they too the uneasy. One of them helps a diesel engine to rotate a rear axle (it gives out 38 kw, or approximately 51 h.p., and 290 Nm). And here the second electric motor works independently, and it already twists a front axle. Capacity of this motor can be different. At quiet movement it is a question about 60 kw (81 h.p.), but at speedup capacity grows to 82 kw (110 h.p.) and even to 104 kw (140 h.p.) . However, the motor is capable to develop 104 kw only throughout 10 with. But for overtaking of it should suffice. In city conditions Vision EfficientDynamics is capable to pass only on one electropull-rod to 50 km. On assurances of representatives BMW, full gymnastics lithium-ion of accumulators from the usual electric socket connection occupies 2,5 hours. But it is possible to use special stations of additional charge which have pressure in 380 volt. In this case accumulators will be charged all for 44 minutes. Average fuel consumption of German super car makes only 3,7 l of solar oil on 100 km of a way. Probably, for this reason fuel tank Vision EfficientDynamics has volume only 25 l. But it should suffice that the car with completely charged accumulators has passed at once 700 km! Amazing result. And what you think about it?

Ford Edge from Steeda tuning!

You want, that you Ford Edge became faster and has begun to sparkle new, unusual sides? No problem, tuning company Steeda has already prepared for you a surprise. The Tuning Whale under name Steeda Edge Sport, according to its developers, “perfectly will approach those who wants all and at once”.

By a word all"in tuning studio most likely mean a weather-cloth from eight elements, the smoothed internal furnish, a cross proline on leather seaters, blacked-out front and rear headlights, and also the polished 22-inch aluminium wheels. That, is valid – almost all.
Except all aforesaid the car is equipped by brakes Brembo and exhaust system Magnaflow. The data about engine completion while is not present.

Audi will receive motor in volume of 1,2 l

Company Audi has decided to establish on the cars the engine in volume only 1,2 l. It is a question of the petrol unit 1,2 TFSI with a turbo-supercharging which gives out 105 h.p. and 175 Nm (at 1500-3500 rpm) – it will receive 3-doors hatchback Audi A3 and 5-doors A3 Sportback. In Audi perfectly understand that the car of a premium-class with a motor in volume of all in 1,2 l at first sight looks not so well. However thus Germans underline that such А3 0-100 km/h for 11,1 will be capable to be dispersed with (for 3-door А3, 5-doorsj Sportback will type one hundred for 11,3 sec). And the maximum speed of models will make 190 km/h. Indicators, in general, quite tolerable. Thus fuel consumption 1,2-litre «Audi A3» will make only 5,5 l of gasoline on 100 km. And the price similar A3 should be very interesting.

Sultan Lamborghini LM002 have decided to sell

Lamborghini LM002 is possible to name quite authoritatively the predecessor of such cars, as Porsche Cayenne and Spyker D8. As a matter of fact, it is a unique crossover of this manufacturer that already in itself interesting.

9ff GT9-R: the car without roof!

The German tuner 9ff works recently very fruitfully. Has not had time to cease still news that masters of studio have created a package of additions for Porsche Panamera which after "operational development" has increased capacity of the motor to 650 h.p. as again all have started talking about 9ff. All the matter is that foreign editions the information that the German studio prepares for an exit special, open version of model Porsche 9ff GT9-R has filtered.

Now Germans have conceived to create three cabriolets 9ff GT9-R and to sell them in the market the United Arab Emirates where, as it is known, rather and it is not enough poor people. If any cars from this series 9ff GT9-R do not find the buyer, German will be compelled to accept orders and from other markets.

From the studio press release 9ff it is known that new version tuning sport car to receive same power "stuffing", as its "colleague" - a compartment. It is a question about 1120 — the strong engine which is capable to accelerate the car to the first 96 km/h for 2,8 sec and to disperse it to speed limit in 413,51 km/h. What dynamics of a course the model variant in a body will show a cabriolet it is not known, however the tuner declares that maximum speeds will differ not much more from coupe indicators 9ff GT9-R. Well, rather impudent statement, as drop of dynamics at cars without a roof — an everyday occurrence.

Cabriolet cost 9ff GT9-R yet is not informed. Concerning a debut exit of model there is not confirmed information that the novelty will be officially presented at the Geneva exhibition which will take place in March of the next year.
