Bugatti Veyron Legend “Ettore Bugatti” revealed







The 2014 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse “Ettore Bugatti” Legend is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, as are all the other Legends. The super sports car is powered by a 1,200 PS, 8-litre W16 engine that transmits an unequalled 1,500 Nm at 3,000 to 5,000 rpm to the tarmac and rockets it from zero to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds. With a maximum speed of 408.84 km/h (254 MPH) with the roof down, the Vitesse is the world’s fastest production roadster ever built. 



It honors Ettore Bugatti, founder and patron of the brand, and is based on the historical model Type 41 Royale. As with the five previous Legends, only three of the final Legends model will be produced. It costs €2.35 million net.





The design of the carbon body of the Legends model “Ettore Bugatti” is based on a 1932 Type 41 Royale with the chassis number 41111 and sports a “yin-yang” color split. The front part is made of hand-polished aluminium and finished with a clear coating. Bugatti is the only manufacturer to use clear-coated aluminium on a production vehicle.

2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit Police car revealed







For 2015, the Dodge Charger Pursuit – America’s high-performance police vehicle – has been significantly redesigned, all while offering 370 best-in-class horsepower, factory-installed Mopar upfit packages and a all-wheel-drive (AWD) system for maximum tactical performance, all-weather traction and fuel-efficiency. 



2015 Dodge Charger Pursuit’s easily recognizable Coke-bottle design and scalloped body sides , sinister front crosshairs and aggressive stance and signature LED “racetrack” tail lamps all get a major makeover for 2015 with cleaner lines to create a sleek, chiseled, nimble and lighter weight appearance. The exterior redesign includes changes to the hood, fenders, front and rear fascias, headlamps, tail lamps and front doors.





Delivering best-in-class power, the Dodge Charger Pursuit V-8 with its 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine unleashes 370 horsepower, 390 lb.-ft. of torque, 0-to-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and up to 26 miles per gallon (mpg) highway with innovative four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology. The legendary Charger Pursuit powertrain set the fastest-ever lap time at the 2012 Model Year Michigan State Police (MSP) Vehicle Evaluation (1:33.70) at the Grattan Raceway in Belding, MI.





In addition, Dodge Charger Pursuit V-6 with its aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivers 292 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and offers E-85 flex-fuel capability and up to 26 mpg highway.

2015 McLaren P1 GTR revealed







With no need to meet the legislations for road legality, the McLaren P1 GTR will be the most track-tailored and most powerful model produced by McLaren Special Operations to date, with a clear target even more focused than its road-going sibling: to be the best driver’s car in the world on track. 



The front track of the McLaren P1 GTR design concept has been increased by 80mm and is coupled with a more aggressive GT-style front splitter. Reprofiled low temperature radiator ducts seamlessly flow into the leading edge of the aggressively flared front wheelarches, while the active aerodynamic flaps are retained from the McLaren P1 in the floor ahead of the front wheels. 





Below the rear wing sits the exposed, centrally mounted exhaust, which is an all new design, developed exclusively for the McLaren P1 GTR. Made from inconel and titanium alloy, the system maximises the aural characteristic of the higher output 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine to maintain, and further emphasise, the McLaren sound. The design of the exhaust has also changed, with a straight cut twin pipe setup now used in place of the single exit exhaust.

NEW Volkswagen Golf GTE hybrid revealed!






Volkswagen will present the new Golf GTE with a plug-in hybrid drive at the Geneva International Motor Show (March 4 to 16, 2014) as a world premiere. The new Golf GTE is driven by two engines: one 110 kW / 150 PS turbo direct fuel injection en-gine (1.4 TSI) and one electric motor with 75 kW / 102 PS. These two engines combine to provide the stated system power of 50 kW / 204 PS. If the electric motor is the sole source for propulsive power, the Golf GTE is capable of speeds of up to 130 km/h. 



When the full power of the TSI is used, the GTE sprints to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds; the Volkswagen Golf GTW achieves a top speed of 217 km/h on German motorways and race courses. However, the "V/max" is of secondary importance. Of more significance is the superior pulling power of the Golf GTE thanks to its alliance of a petrol engine and electric motor that produces a maximum torque of 350 Nm.

The new Golf GTE is driven by one 110 kW / 150 PS turbo direct fuel injection engine (1.4 TSI) and one electric engine with 75 kW / 102 PS. The combined system power from both engines is 150 kW / 204 PS. The electric motor is supplied with power from a high-voltage lithium-ion battery; the capacity of this battery which is equipped with liquid cooling is 8.8 kWh. The battery is charged from a charging socket behind the VW logo in the radiator grille. The battery weighs 120 kg, the Golf GTE a total of 1,524 kg. 




The gearboxes used by Volkswagen are an automatic shift and a 6-speed DSG with a triple clutch developed specially for use in hybrid vehicles.

The Golf GTE can be driven in various intuitively named modes. For instance, the driver can push a button to intentionally switch to the "e-mode" which makes the Golf GTE a zero-emission vehicle. In all-electric mode, the GTE can reach a maximum speed of 130 km/h; its maximum range in "e-mode" is 50 kilometres (if the battery is fully charged beforehand and dependent on the outdoor temperature and driving style). The driver can also use the GTE button to switch to the mode named after the car, the "GTE mode", which activates a very sporty side of this new Golf.
