Audi TT Moving Closer to R8

cr 466d42d8790a9c39982bf46f566eb67b Audi Tt Next GenerationThe next TT will include the MQB Modular-Transversal architecture.  Audi is looking to its first generation car for its next generation.  It is anticipated that it will have a shorter front overhang and a longer wheelbase relative in relation to the car’s overall profile.  The overall footprint or vehicle size will remain relatively unchanged.

The TT's interior is flawless leaving no history to its VW Golf lineage.  A crafted interior is modern with a bit of flair with its faux suede and leather upholstery.  10 way power seats and navigation system bring the TT to full functionality.

The Audi was one of the pristine cars arriving in the late 90's with its dramatic front and rear profiles.  The Audi TT name is generated from a successful motor racing tradition of NSU Motorenwerke AG which later merged into the Audi Brand.  Both Technology and Tradition have been connected with the TT signature.

The TT was named after the Tourist Tropy race which is held on the British Isle of Man (Motorcycle Race).  The front or all wheel drive is a 2 seat tourer not fully fitting into a sports car or sport coupe or roadster classification.  Its heavy curb weight and soft suspension prevented the full sporty feel and perception.  There are sporty TTS and RS variants, however, if that is your cup of tea.

The TT is all about unique style and relaxing ride.  The optional magnetic ride suspension and all weather traction give the TT some additional offerings.

Stars and Cars: Lindsay Lohan Hits a Man with Porsche Panamera

Lindsay Lohan's Porsche Panamera

Tell us what you think if we mention Lindsay Lohan other than drugs, alcohol, party all the time, lesbian love with DJ Samantha Ronson, the detention, problem with father, and Herbie movie which probably one thing she did it right. So, what’s up with LiLo this time? Well, it seems like the not so A-list Hollywood celebrity is going to add more record on her rap sheet as she reportedly involved in hit and run with her Porsche Panamera.

Yup… it seems like the Porsche 911 wasn’t big enough for Lindsay Lohan to store her stuffs and so she changed the ride into Panamera which offers her more room with the same power and speed. According to autoevolution.com, the actress wanted to leave a club in Hollywood and when her Panamera couldn’t exit the parking lot due to the group of people who were standing on the way. The classy German saloon tried to turn and got out but accidentally hit a man in the process.

Actually, Lindsay Lohan’s Porsche Panamera was barely scrapped and the man who later found out that he was the manager of a local establishment wasn’t injured. Furthermore, our aforementioned source reported that LiLo fled the scene with her Panamera without anybody getting out seeing if the person was alright. Good thing for LiLo as she wasn’t drive the German four-door saloon although no official report who drove the vehicle.

For Sale: Al-Thani Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV

Al-Thani Lamborghini LP670-4 SV

It seems like the Al-Thani royal family of Qatar about to buy new supercar as they empty one of the slots on their garage. The empty slot used to be the parking lot for Turquoise Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. For royal family, selling one of their valuable supercar collections doesn’t mean they lose everything. Our suspicion is that the Al-Thani royal family is planning to buy another supercar which we don’t know what it is. So, how much does Al-Thani have to charge for the Murcielago LP670-4 SV?

Al-Thani Lamborghini LP670-4 SV interior

Okay, breathe slowly, folks… Al-Thani puts the price tag for their Turquoise Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV is £234,500/$365,227/€281,359. Expensive? Well, we are dealing with the super ride of Qatar royal family here, so “cheap” or even “affordable” is not on the diction. The technical sides of the Italian Raging Bull are 6.5L V12 engine that offers the unmistakably 661 horsepower. In order to reach that amount of power, Lamborghini revised the valve timing and intake system.

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV owned by Al-Thani royal family of Qatar just like other 350 units of supercar where the Italian Raging Bull company constructed the Murcie from carbon fiber. From the panels, interior parts, exterior, and exhaust system; all made from carbon fiber. The Al-Thani Murcielago LP670-4 SV is number 266 from the 350 units, and unfortunately, we haven’t got any info on the odometer.

Is it true Porsche will create a new concept car?

Porsche wanted to continue to compete with its rivals such as McLaren, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. To that end, Porsche tried to create a new concept car with mid engine. The problem, the project is still just a discourse, because, Volkswagen, the parent company has not granted permission.

If the project is to be executed, then the concept car will be sold at a cheap and produced by a finite number. This car seems to be a combination of the Porsche 918 Spyder and 911. The engineers at Porsche have designed the car. But according to Mathias Muller, Porsche boss, if the project was not approved because of the possibility of financial factors.

A little leak from the Porsche, these cars will use CFRP as its main materials. Of course, the use of CFRP is to reduce the weight of the concept car. Moreover, Porsche has often created the light cars, such as 911 GT2 RS and Carrera GT.
