Mercedes-Benz 2012 CLS 63 AMG

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG

It is 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, completed by a unique hood and wider fenders. The machine is 5.5-liter V8. With twin turbo and direct injection, it produces 550 hp of power and 590 lb-ft of torque gives you the optional performance package. The two engines are set to AMG’s compact, lightweight, quick-shifting MCT seven-speed transmission.

They increase the use of aluminum to this car, but the weight is still 4,114 pounds.  Don’t worry, it’s light. While the fuel economy is 23 mpg. This car will be launched in May (in United States) and you’ll get the information about the price before the launch. But the current model stickers cost you about $100,000.

Lamborghini 2015 Urus SUV Review

Pictures of Urus

The Cadillac Escalade Platinum has been a fixture for pro-athletes, rappers, movie stars, rock stars and the new Lamborghini Urus could very well be a suitable alternative for this genre.  Further customization of the Urus will put it in a unique market niche for the very wealthy.  Lamborghini‘s superstar SUV will be an aggressive car with a angular stance and a superior interior.  The Urus will be quite costly and someone looking for a similar vehicle in the same market niche might find the BMW X5, X6, Range Rover or the Mercedes M-Class easier on the wallet.  The Urus is going to be an expensive vehicle for the very, very wealthy which will be built in China.  China is known for minting more millionaires than any other country in the world in case you didn't know.

The Urus was originally unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.  It is believed that the Lamborghini Urus will compete with the Porsche Cayenne on a similar level.  Target markets include the Russia, the US, the UK, Germany, the Middle East and China.  The Urus will compete well in its market niche by offering a lighter curb weight.  Both the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 will be alternative vehicles of choice for the smart consumer.  The Urus will be known for its power underneath the hood with the size of an SUV.

Some feel the Urus looks similar to the Ford Focus or Range Rover Evoque side-on, BMW X6 from the rear.  Some have even suggested if it comes in black it could resemble the Bat Mobile.  Lamborghini vows the Urus will be the lightest and best-handling vehicle in the segment.

Lamborghini represents the place where passion overwhelms business sense and has lost money for decades and is only somewhat profitable today.  Lamborghini's vintage, heritage and image are still held as the pinnacle of sports cars.  This keeps the capital investment moneys flowing for a vehicle such as the Urus.  The biggest hurdle facing Lamborghini is to differentiate the Urus from Audi and Porsche if it must use the same basic materials.  Lamborghini has always offered too much opulence and car for most of its drivers.  The Lamborghini Urus has a great opportunity for success if it doesn't break the bank.

Design Intent Urus Features:

  • The Lamborghini Urus SUV will offer an output of approximately 600hp.
  • The dash is slated to be carbon-fiber with a mesh of touchscreen controls.  It will also feature a bright red gear shifter
  • The seats appear sectional and unique
  • The Urus will have 4 seats like Range Rover’s Evoque
  • The rear headroom is going to be low based on the vehicle profile
  • Beneath its hood will be a 5.2-liter V10 engine and approximate 584 hp
  • The Urus has a 600-hp power target and 3,000/vehicles per year @ $200,000 each
  • The Urus and the Bentley EXP 9F are similar in design.
  • Stealth-fighter "like" intakes
  • Geometric wheel openings
  • A tall hatchback shape
  • The tail-lights which appear very similar to the Estoque

It is widely suggested that sister brand Bentley and Italian rival Maserati will likely enter the SUV niche market.  Despite this scenario Lamborghini expects its SUV to become the top-selling model because of strong demand in China, the United States, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.  Porsche's success is envied which now relies on its Cayenne SUV for more than 50% of its total world sales.  As automakers introduce new models in China sales have been soaring and thus the Urus has a real good chance.  Up to ½ of the 3000 vehicles/annum may be targeted for the United States market. Lamborghini is looking for the approval of its corporate parent Audi to put the Urus on sale in late 2015.  If Lamborghini can sell the Turbo V8 vs a V10 it could avoid the 2015 regulations in Europe and elsewhere that makes engines of multiple cylinders challenging to sell through the fuel economy regulations.  The 600 hp seems to be the minimum size Lamborghini would implement.  Lamborghini is hoping to reach 5,000 units a year. In 2011 Lamborghini had total global sales of 1,600 units amongst its current models (Gallardo and Aventador coupes and roadsters)

 
 

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan First Drive

Volkswagen Tiguan 2012

At first glance, seems an awfully long way to Munich for the opportunity to travel to a player mid-cycle refresh. But Volkswagen has good reason to ask us to carry across the Atlantic to the updated-for 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan First Drive : Momentum.

The compact crossover is a little knock to the grid when it came to the United States in May 2008, a 2009 model year. While demand has been spectacular at home in Europe, VW has started for the North American buyers, despite the entry of a white-hot segment. But that is changing rapidly. Last year, sales increased by less than 14,000 units to nearly 21,000 Tiguan, and this year it is on the way to a new record, selling close to 3100 only in May And with a number of useful updates for 2012, there is every reason to believe that the little brother of the Touareg are more expensive to find more and more popular among consumers.

All-In-One in 2010 Volkswagen Transporter

2010 Volkswagen Transporter

Volkswagen’s Transporter and People Mover celebrates the 60 years of production this month, and to celebrate this achievement, VW introduced the 2010 Volkswagen Transporter. It is a spacious MPV and able to load a group of kindergarten choirs and bridge club members.

Just plain speaking, the new 2010 Volkswagen Transporter is very thorough half-body revision with almost all the changes made forward of the “B” pillar. The reshape makes a lot of sense from a cost perspective, and has helped Volkswagen pass on big savings to its customers. It’s also certain to come as good news to wallets of existing customers wanting to transfer expensive custom-made body modules from their previous Transporter to the new model with the cargo bay remaining mostly unchanged.

So, what new improvements are there in the 2010 Volkswagen Transporter? Yes, they are. The new 2010 Transporter offers a 3.2 tonne admissible total weight; new infotainment program, new climate control system, antenna integrated in exterior wing mirrors, gear shift indicator, new headlamps and taillights, new front mudguards, grille and bonnet, new fog lamps with integrated cornering light function (optional), new wet clutch seven-speed DSG transmission, and of course, new fabrics and new colors.

The 2010 Volkswagen Transporter is powered by 2.0-liter turbo-diesel unit with three variants of outputs 75kW, 103kW, and 132kW. Volkswagen claims the power delivery has been improved with more torque offered earlier in the rev range for greater flexibility and negligible turbo lag. Fuel-economy usage has improved significantly by as much as 16 percent.

Of course fuel consumption of 2010 Volkswagen Transporter figures will vary depending on configuration, transmission type and load carried, but we predict a 132kW TDI engine uses just 8.7-liter/100km in the ADR combined-cycle test, a seven percent improvement over the current 2.5-liter unit.

With lower operating costs, better fuel-economy and superior safety than the previous model, the 2010 Volkswagen Transporter represents a reasonably priced and realistic alternative to less appealing and lesser specified Japanese and Korean rivals.

The price tag for 2010 Volkswagen Transporter $36,490 sets the new generation of vans and people movers and Volkswagen really expects the sales number boosts up to 2,500 units.
