2010 Mercedes E-Class leaked and spied

Article file under

The first official images of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class have been leaked onto the web just as our spy photographers have caught yet another glimpse of the prototype model.

Codenamed W212, the new model range is planned to debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show which includes a new Coupe version which will replace the current CLK.

The E-Class range will boast a revised engine line-up, including petrol and Bluetec diesel units with an entry-level 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol unit and a new 2.2-litre turbo diesel.

A flagship AMG model will compete directly with its BMW M5 rival, boasting a 6.3-litre V8 engine with over 373kW of power.

An Estate model will also be included in the line-up, drawing its inspiration from the ConceptFascination model which made its premiere at the Paris Motor Show.

The next E-Class will share many characteristics with the S-Class including the wheel-arch extensions, rising character line below the door handles, massive bumpers, and greenhouse.

Driver assistance aids will play a major role in the new E-Class, boasting lane-departure warnings, an eye-movement monitor, traffic-sign identification, road-condition sensors, and stability control that accounts for crosswinds, camber changes, and tire wear.

2009 Ford Focus RS Revealed

Article file under

The highly anticipated Ford Focus RS super hatch has made its production model debut with a series of new official images and details.

First showcased in concept form at the British Motor Show earlier this year, overwhelming positive public response has meant the showroom-bound version is true to form.

Finished in Performance Blue as a tribute to the original Escort RS Cosworth and original Focus RS Mk1, the mechanicals also remain identical to earlier reports.

The 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine churns out more than 220kW, which is transferred to the asphalt via a unique Automatic Torque Biasing limited-slip differential developed by British engineering specialist Quaife.

This system works in conjunction with Ford’s new RevoKnuckle suspension setup to dull the side effects of such a high-powered front-wheel drive sports car.

Performance from zero to 100km/h is anticipated to be below 6 seconds with a theoretical top speed of more than 257km/h - simply astounding for a front-wheel drive hacth.

Its aesthetics are simply awe-inspiring, its rally-inspired front and rear diffusers plus oversized rear wing blend seamlessly with original RS trademarks to create a menacing appearance for the pinnacle of hot hatches.

Completing the look are 19-inch multispoke wheels which draw their influence from rally, of course, shod in low-profile performance rubber while the interior boasts Recaro bucket seats with body-coloured accents, carbon fibre trim and aluminium highlights.

The new Ford Focus RS is expected to cost less than AUD$56,000 in the UK, keeping it roughly on par with the WRX STi and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

More 2009 Subaru Impreeza

The full assessment of that question will have to wait until we can fully test the two cars back-to-back but the initial impressions are that while the latest WRX, at least in sedan form because that’s all we’ve driven, has a sharper feel and is certainly quicker than the MY2008 model it just doesn’t seem to have the sharp edge of the Lancer Ralliart.

There’s little doubt that at this point the arguments will begin but it needs to be said immediately that this latest iteration of the WRX is, in some respects a very definite attempt by Subaru Australia to get the car back to something closer to the WRX of old, and an acknowledgement by Subaru that it may have gone too far in softening the car with the release of the all-new Impreza range last year.

If you doubt that then in Subaru’s own words it has “put the boot in for Model Year 2009, adding power, torque and a raft of other aggressive ingredients.”

The newly released sedan variants, available in WRX and RS, although we have only driven the WRX version, share the same turbocharged technical advances.
The 2.5-litre turbocharged engine now produces 195 Kilowatts of power at 6000rpm and 343 Newtonmetres of torque at 4000rpm.

While Impreza WRX is meaner, it’s also greener - lower fuel consumption and emissions result from the engineering refinement.

Fuel consumption is improved in the combined cycle from 10.7L/100km to 10.4L/100km, while carbon-dioxide emissions are down from 252g/km to 247g/km.

2009 Ford Focus Coupe

Article file under

Alongside the redesigned Focus sedan for 2008 comes a completely new body style -- the Focus Focus Coupe. The two-door model replaces the hatchback offered as a part of the previous-generation Focus lineup.

For the most part, the Focus Coupe is identical to its sedan counterpart, minus two doors. It weighs the same, it has an identical wheelbase, and it's even the same overall length.

The Coupe shares the Sedan's new aggressive styling theme, which incorporates a more stylish grille, new headlights, and redesign taillights. It also boasts a redesigned cabin with silver metallic finishing on the dashboard and center console, available ambient interior lighting, and available leather seating with contrast stitching.

The ambient lighting system has seven available colors that can be selected using a switch. They are red, blue, aqua, purple, white, green and yellow.

The car is powered by a 2.0-liter, Duratec 20 dual-overhead-cam, inline four-cylinder engine delivering an estimated 136 hp. The new engine also offers improved air intake system, cooling and exhaust system are designed to improve the smoothness, efficiency, and response of the powertrain.

The new engine also brings a variant which qualifies in states adopting California emission standards that qualifies Focus as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle when using the Duratec 20E engine.

Suspension and chassis refinements improve ride and handling. Improved sealing and sound deadening are used to enhance audio performance and reduce road noise. Also offered is FordSync, the new Focus promises to serve as a "second home on wheels."

Rossi’s performance praised by WRC stars

All articles and picture under

Valentino Rossi’s 12th place finish on Wales Rally GB has been applauded by WRC drivers Sebastien Loeb and Jari-Matti Latvala and Ford team principal Malcolm Wilson.

The Italian MotoGP star and his co-driver Carlo Cassina drove a Stobart-backed Ford Focus RS WRC in the event and showed steadily improving pace throughout the weekend.

After ending Friday’s first day of the competition in 24th position, the pair made up 12 places on Saturday and Sunday, eventually finishing three and a half minutes outside the top ten.

“I’m very happy, firstly to finish the rally and secondly to set some very good times on Sunday’s four stages,” said Rossi. “The car was fantastic and I was finding it easy to drive when we got a precise setting. My approach was to take the race step-by-step and try not to make any mistakes and this worked well. I think this rally was very difficult and finishing it makes me very happy indeed. It’s been fantastic working with the Stobart team; they are all very friendly and hopefully we will get a chance to work again together.”

Ford team boss Malcolm Wilson said: “There has been so much excitement with Valentino in the team and his presence has been a massive boost to the squad; his times on Sunday were remarkable.”

Jari-Matti Latvala thought Rossi’s careful approach to the rally has been the right one. “For me Valentino did a good job,” said the Finn. “I remember when he was here the first time, because it was my first World Rally in 2002, and I had a feeling that year that there was too much pressure for him to suddenly arrive and do a great performance.
