Dacia Sandero and the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Dacia Sandero and the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. Both cars are biting at the Geneva Motor Show. The one sold as the cheapest car in Geneva Motor Show, the other most expensive car Geneva Motor Show.

Dacia Sandero, a 5-door hatchback produced jointly by the French manufacturer Renault and its subsidiary Dacia of Romania, which has the lowest price range is 7000 euros (USD 80 million) for the Sandero LPG.

While other variants, such as the Sandero St. Pauli special edition, 1.2-liter engine dibanderol Euro 9900. Black Line Sandero Euro 9600 (USD 120 million), and Logan MCV Black Line 13,350 euros (USD 162 million).

While the Dacia Sandero dibanderol started Kiss FM until 9400 euro 11,300 euro (USD 141 million), with various options such as exterior features stickers, ABS, AFU, air conditioning, onboard computer, electric windows, 15 inch pelk, and hydraulic steering.

There are several options for engines Dacia Sandero, which is 1.0 liters of gasoline and ethanol, 1.2 liters of gasoline, 1.4 liter LPG gas, 1.5 liter I4 Diesel and 1.6 petrol and ethanol.

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, which dibanderol fantastic price USD 19 billion! Bugatti Grand Sport Cabriolet regarded as the most expensive and most rapid in the world.

The engine capacity of 7993 cc 64 valve turbocharged Quad capable of providing power of 987 bhp. With so Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport can run 0-100 km per hour is only 2.7 seconds, with a maximum speed of 400 km per hour!

For daily driving, a Ferrari sports car is a bit of a drag. The California — a GT, which is to say, a long-distance touring car — is calibrated to a much more humane and realistic standard.
The base price of the 2009 Ferrari California is $197,350. The version I tested was about $210,000.

Audi R8 (AUDI)

2009 Audi R8 (AUDI)
Motor Trend says, “Therein lies the beauty of the R8: It’s exotic yet uncomplicated, high-tech but low maintenance, a dream car that can double as a daily driver, a boulevard cruiser that can switch to a track ace.”

Jay Leno’s garage is actually three airplane hangars, so we know he’s a great car collector. Watch as he goes out for an in-depth drive in his 2009 Corvette ZR1, which also happens to be the first one off the assembly line. .

So you were able to convince the wife that the BMW M5 Touring was the perfect vehicle to carry around the 2.5 kids, but the your bachelor buddies who don’t know a thing about cars are still teasing because you bought a wagon. What is an ulta-rich insecure soccer dad to do? It seems Japanese tuner Mitaka has your self esteem. The kit includes no performance parts because BMW is already pretty damn good at doing it themselves. Instead this program includes a new front bumper, new side (…)

Okay, really its hard to tell the difference between the stock pipes for the Nissan GT-R and the WR35MP Willall Racing Mid-Pipes that are being revved in the video. We probably wouldn’t even be posting this if we we’re addicted to the exhaust notes of great supercars. .

Mercedes SLA rendering

Mercedes | future cars | Mercedes SLA
Rumors about a small two-seat roadster based on the A-Class started to heat up again last week last week. What we heard then was that it was going to be based on Vision SLA concept. Now AutoCar has taken the lines of that concept car and reskined it to give an appearance closer to the rest of the Mercedes family. If this little roadster becomes a reality, it probably won’t see production before 2012. By then it should be in hot competition with Volkswagen/Audi’s future mid-engined (…)

We already knew that the 2009 GT-R will gain five more extra hp, but what we didn’t know is that Europe would get it first. But that’s okay, because this is the first time Europe gets to taste the GT-R, as it get officially launched there today. Europe’s Godzilla comes with a few more changes. Now stickier Dunlop SP Sport 600 DSST tires are standard. The GT-R is now offered in three different versions: standard, Premium edition and Black Edition. All come with price increased of 3.8 (…)

Subaru | 2009 | concept cars | Detroit Auto Show
The rumors have been going around for a while that Toyota and Subaru are going to team up to build a small Celica-sized coupe. It seems this may actually come together next month at the Detroit Auto Show. While some manufacturers are pulling out of Detroit, Subaru may be using this show to unveil its version of the small sports car. It would be unlikely that Subaru would deviate from its current theme of offering all cars with all-wheel drive, so this one should follow suit. Plus, by (…)

Hydrogen

A hydrogen car is an automobile which uses hydrogen as its primary source of power for locomotion. These cars generally use the hydrogen in one of two methods: combustion or fuel-cell conversion. In combustion, the hydrogen is “burned” in engines in fundamentally the same method as traditional gasoline cars. In fuel-cell conversion, the hydrogen is turned into electricity through fuel cells which then powers electric motors. With either method, the only byproduct from the spent hydrogen is water.

A small number of prototype hydrogen cars currently exist, and a significant amount of research is underway to make the technology more viable. The common internal combustion engine, usually fueled with gasoline (petrol) or diesel liquids, can be converted to run on gaseous hydrogen. However, the most efficient use of hydrogen involves the use of fuel cells and electric motors instead of a traditional engine. Hydrogen reacts with oxygen inside the fuel cells, which produces electricity to power the motors. One primary area of research is hydrogen storage, to try to increase the range of hydrogen vehicles while reducing the weight, energy consumption, and complexity of the storage systems. Two primary methods of storage are metal hydrides and compression. Some believe that hydrogen cars will never be economically viable and that the emphasis on this technology is a diversion from the development and popularization of more efficient hybrid cars and other alternative technologies.

High speed cars, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, submarines, and space rockets already run on hydrogen, in various forms. There is even a working toy model car that runs on solar power, using a reversible fuel cell to store energy in the form of hydrogen and oxygen gas. It can then convert the fuel back into water to release the solar energy.

BMW’s Clean Energy internal combustion hydrogen car has more power and is faster than hydrogen fuel cell electric cars. A limited series production of the 7 Series Saloon was announced as commencing at the end of 2006. A BMW hydrogen prototype (H2R) using the driveline of this model broke the speed record for hydrogen cars at 300 km/h (186 mi/h), making automotive history. Mazda has developed Wankel engines to burn hydrogen. The Wankel uses a rotary principle of operation, so the hydrogen burns in a different part of the engine from the intake. This reduces pre-detonation, a problem with hydrogen fueled piston engines.

However the major car companies like DaimlerChrysler and General Motors Corp, are investing in the slower, weaker, but more efficient hydrogen fuel cells instead. Hydrogen fuel cells run directly on hydrogen fuel, or on hydrogen produced in the vehicle from reforming methane or gasoline (this from petroleum), or natural ethanol, while hydrogen internal-combustion cars run on hydrogen only.
