Audi R8 super car wows paris show
October 09, 2006
new ultra-high performance Audi R8 combines the time-honoured
hallmarks of the best of the classic sports cars with
futuristic construction, transmission and suspension
technologies, all underpinned by the steadfast reassurance
of the quattro four-wheel-drive system.
longitudinally directly behind the cockpit of the comparatively
lightweight, 1,560-kilogramme aluminium-bodied Audi
sports car is a high-revving V8 petrol engine delivering
420 bhp, and contributing to an exceptional power-to-weight
ratio of 269 bhp per tonne. Spinning freely to its 8,250
rpm limit, this acclaimed unit punches the R8 through
the 62 mph barrier in just 4.6 seconds and, in the right
conditions, can carry it on to a top speed of 187 mph
– an unprecedented high for a road-going Audi.
purists can choose a six-speed manual transmission to
channel the 430 Nm of torque to the four driven wheels,
but they may also be tempted by the racing-inspired
R tronic sequential shift gearbox with joystick and
paddle control, which uses ‘shift-by-wire’
technology to provide exceptionally rapid gear changes.
mounting the potent eight-cylinder unit as close as
possible to the centre of the new R8, in deference to
racing legends such as the Le Mans-winning R8 sports
prototype and Auto Union Type C Grand Prix car, Audi
engineers have achieved near perfect 44 per cent front
/ 56 per cent rear weight distribution for optimum handling
balance. Dry sump engine lubrication - another racing-derived
element – also furthers this aim by enabling the
V8 to be mounted as close to the road as possible to
lower the centre of gravity.
M GmbH presents the M6 Convertible

officially unveiled its wicked M6 coupe at the recent
Geneva motor show, but it was no secret that a BMW M6
convertible wouldn't be far behind.

The lightweight 19-inch twin-spoke wheels are a dead
giveaway to its Motorsport pedigree as are the extended
the important specs should mimic the coupe, with a 507-horsepower
V10 under the hood and a seven-speed sequential manual
gearbox sending the power to the rear wheels. With the
standard 6 Series cabrio weighing in about 400 pounds

convertible to be slightly less spectacular than the
hardtop. 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and a limited topspeed
of 155 mph (250 km/h).

true Bond style, specific details of the new DBS remain
top secret, although Aston Martin Design Director, Marek
Reichman, said: “This car encapsulates a link
between our elegant DB9 road car and the powerful DBR9
race car. It signals an evolutionary development of
Aston Martin’s world renowned style and elegance.
hinting at our future design direction, the DBS also
has very clear links with our heritage – it is
instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.”
Martin Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich
Bez added: “The DBS continues our proud and lengthy
association with James Bond.
DBS is not of the understated elegance of a DB9, nor
the youthful agility of the V8 Vantage. It is explosive
power in a black tie and has its own unique character
which will equal that of James Bond.”

is scheduled for release in November, 2006.
six-cylinder engines enter new dimensions of performance
May 08, 2006
the latest expression of individual style - the all-new
BMW 3 Series Coupe. With totally new looks, the newest
BMW Coupe once again sets the benchmark for elegant
design, luxury and value. In true BMW tradition, it
also establishes a new standard of performance and driving
dynamics with the introduction of an exceptional engine:
the first inline six-cylinder with twin-turbochargers,
high-precision fuel injection, and an all-aluminum crankcase.
performance potential of this new 300 horsepower engine
ensures that the 335i Coupe offers a significant improvement
in performance while maintaining a level of efficiency
for which the BMW 3 Series is renowned. The 335i Coupe
will be joined in the U.S. by the 230 horsepower 328i
addition to the standard six-speed manual, both models
will be offered with an available six-speed STEPTRONIC
automatic transmission. Designed for responsiveness,
the new automatic enhances driving dynamics without
sacrificing fuel efficiency.
additional dimension of driving dynamics, with the benefit
of outstanding traction, will be offered with the introduction
of BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive. BMW xDrive is the most
sophisticated and responsive all-wheel drive system
on the market. It has proven its merits, in terms of
agility and safety, in the ten models currently offered
with xDrive in the U.S. Beginning this fall these merits
will become available to Coupe drivers for the first
buyer who chooses a Coupe wants a car that satisfies
their demand for elegant looks as well as driving dynamics.
With all this in mind, BMW engineers and designers set
out to create a unique yet unmistakable blend of design,
features and - most particularly - driving pleasure.
Motors’ new luxury 2+2 convertible
May 12, 2006
Continental GTC will be officially unveiled at the New
York International Automobile Show in April 2006. When
the stunning convertible goes on sale later this year
it will complete the Bentley Continental model range,
following the introduction of the highly successful
Continental GT in 2003 and four-door Continental Flying
Spur in 2005.
With a top speed of 195mph (312km/h), a sophisticated
all-wheel drive system, state-of-the-art 12-cylinder
engine, advanced air suspension and ultra-stiff body
structure, the Continental GTC displays all the poise,
exhilarating performance and dynamic handling of the
Continental GT. In common with its stable mates, the
interior of the new Continental GTC provides an unrivalled
standard of craftsmanship, utilising natural wood veneers
and leather hides of the finest quality, which are on
full display when you lower the elegant, electro-hydraulically
operated soft-top roof.
Continental GTC becomes the second convertible to grace
the current Bentley range. It follows the recently announced
return of the evocative Azure name for Bentley’s
Arnage-derived flagship four-seater convertible.
While the Azure offers the ultimate glamour, sophistication
and accommodation for adults in supreme comfort, the
2+2 Continental GTC is designed for customers looking
to enjoy the phenomenal performance, style and excitement
of the Continental GT with the additional benefits of
classic open-top Bentley motoring.
As on the entire Continental range, the GTC’s
design has also been influenced by the need to ensure
perfect aerodynamic balance at speeds close to 200mph
(320km/h). The convertible spent many hours in the wind
tunnel to ensure a low drag coefficient and like the
coupé and four-door versions it utilises an underbody
diffuser and specially sculpted rear bumper and bootlid
edge to provide downforce and stability at high speed.
