Lamborghini Aventador J - 2012 Geneva Auto Show

Article file under

Describing it as "the most uncompromising open super sports car in its entire history, Lamborghini took the wraps off of the stunning Aventador J in Geneva. Although based on the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Coupe, this literal one-off exercise takes the stun factor to a whole new level.

"With the Lamborghini Aventador J, we have molded our brand DNA into its most definitive form to-date. This automobile is as extreme and as uncompromising as only a Lamborghini can be," noted Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "Nowadays we are confronted with several regulations that we face in the spirit of challenge. The Aventador J is the proof that, despite the rules, Lamborghini will always make people dream, even in the future."

The Lamborghini Aventador J draws its name from the FIA's sporting code, specifically "Appendix J" that covers technical specifications for race cars in various classes. This raging roadster also pays historic homage to the 1970 Lamborghini Jota, which was a super-hot concept variation of the automaker's Miura production model. While carbon-fiber reinforced polymer remains at its superlight core, the Aventador J's structure has been thoroughly reworked to help it cope with the rigors of going topless. That includes the addition a pair of fixed roll hoops behind the seats and a new X-shaped bracing element that frames the mid-ship engine compartment.

In addition to dispensing with the LP700-4's fixed roof and replacing the front glass with a pair of laid-back wind deflectors, the full-composite bodywork on the Aventador J boasts even more dramatic cues. The front clip is dominated by a huge air intake with functional winglets and features a narrower cross section than its coupe cousin accented by a periscope-style rearview mirror. At the rear, an equally massive diffuser balances the front scoop while four huge exhaust outlets, Lambo-signature five-element taillights and a fixed rear spoiler complete the all-function, all-the-time look. Body bits not rendered in bare carbon fiber are painted in a special high-intensity red finish that features a semi-chrome look. Like the LP700-4, the Aventador J also has doors that open upwards, prominent side air intakes and wraps its huge low-profile performance tires around bespoke central-lock wheels that match aluminum with carbon-fiber inserts that act as mini cooling fans for the brakes.

Substances in Automobiles Are Dangerous

Source - Sharing with Brian Turner (internet)

Billions of people rely on vehicles for everyday transportation. While some people may not own a car, many people rely on buses, taxis, scooters, and other vehicles for commuting. Most people are aware of the dangers of reckless driving -- however, many people may not know about the hidden dangers lurking in many automobiles.

Modern vehicles are not made in a single factory. They are manufactured from thousands of parts sourced from all over the world. While a large car manufacturer can control what happens in their own country, it can be hard to control the actions of some suppliers and foreign manufacturers.

Many vehicles contain dangerous levels of toxins. Exposure to these toxins can result in mesothelioma, heart disease, cancer, and birth defects. Mostly in older vehicles, toxins like asbestos was used in many different automobile parts such as brake linings, gaskets, hood liners, clutch plates, etc. All mechanics and hobbyists should be aware and take safety precautions. While many people many enjoy the 'new car' smell in a recently manufactured automobile, this smell can contain deadly solvents, heavy metals, and vaporized manufacturing resins.

It's important to guard oneself against these hidden dangers in modern vehicles. The following simple tips will help vehicle owners minimize their exposure to these chemicals.

Never enter a vehicle on a hot day with the windows rolled up. The warm temperature inside a vehicle can vaporize many solvents and dangerous chemicals in the vehicle like benzene. Always roll down the windows when first getting in a vehicle. It's also important to avoid leaving any children or pets in a vehicle without ventilation.

There are several ways to minimize one's exposure to these toxins when buying a vehicle. Most of the noxious toxins in a vehicle will dissipate several years after manufacture. A used vehicle will contain lower levels of these dangerous toxins. Try to purchase a vehicle that is at least 2-3 years old. This will help ensure safety for both the driver and his or her passengers.

It's also important to understand where a vehicle was manufactured. Most vehicles in the United States are put through their final manufacturing states in a domestic facility -- most of the production takes place outside the United States. All cars are required to have a sticker indicating the origin of the vehicle. This sticker is usually found on the driver's door of the vehicle.

Many people rely on air conditioning in a vehicle to cool them down on a hot day. While this can be a great way to create a comfortable environment inside a vehicle cabin, it can result in the concentration of deadly toxins. Avoid the use of the air recirculation feature in a vehicle. While recirculating the air inside a vehicle can help save money, it will expose drivers and passengers to higher levels of toxins.

It's important to understand the hidden risks found in many modern vehicles.

2012 Ford Mustang V6

Article file under

My first car was a used 1981 Ford Mustang. It was a complete piece of garbage, but it was the best I could do with $900 worth of hard-earned busboy tips. It only had one side mirror, the power steering fluid had to be filled every two weeks and there was a nail in the dashboard. I would have removed that last bit of nonstandard hardware, but whenever the Brown Bomber didn't want to turn over, touching the nail for luck seemed to work. But compared to my friends' cars, mine at least looked the fastest. Looks don't win at the stoplight, though, and my rust-colored 'Stang featured the double whammy of a 109-horsepower 2.8-liter V6 and an automatic transmission.

To say that my Mustang's powertrain was a disappointment could be the understatement of the century, but I wasn't the only V6-powered Mustang owner suffering from horsepower humiliation. It would be another 30 years before Ford would offer a V6-powered Mustang with anything more than mule muscle, but that's where we are today. The 2012 Mustang boasts a legit 305 horsepower, or more punch than the 4.6-liter V8 under the hood of the 2009 Mustang GT. I have no doubt that the 2012 Mustang is vastly superior to my 1981 shame machine, but does that 305 horsepower and a vastly improved rear-wheel-drive chassis make this Mustang one of America's great performance bargains?

2013 Porsche Panamera Facelift Spied, new rear end in the works

Article file under

The Porsche Panamera is scheduled to receive its first facelift for the 2013 model year. Test vehicles have been spotted by our spies over the past few months, but these latest spy shots confirm the model will receive a redesigned rear end.

Unfortunately we don't get to see much of the changes. A temporary makeshift bumper looks to have been grafted on to the rear, so we'll have to patiently wait to take a peak at final styling changes. However, the German sportscar brand aren't well known for massive redesigns on their models, generally favouring evolution rather than revolution.

The front end remains the same as we have seen in previous test vehicles. Large black panels hide some minor modifications to the headlights and the front fascia closely resembles the new Porsche 911 (991).

The range of engines is unlikely to change, although Porsche engineers will probably tweak a few minor details for improved performance and fuel economy figures.

Top Speed Rendering: 2013 Porsche 918 Spyder

Article file under

Porsche unveiled the 918 Spyder Concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, followed by the 918 RSR Racing Lab at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. Both concepts will be used as base versions for the 918 Spyder production and racing vehicles scheduled to arrive in 2013.

The production version 918 Spyder was officially confirmed for an end of 2013 launch with the first deliveries beginning in early 2014. Porsche will build only 918 units and will price each unit at $845,000 on the US market.

The Porsche 918 Spyder Concept is powered by a 500 HP 3.4 liter V8, along with a pair of electric motors producing 109 horsepower each. But for the production version, this engine will be replaced with an engine featuring a larger displacement of 4.6 liter based on the RS Spyder LMP2 race car. This engine will deliver a total of 550 HP and will be combined with three electric motors that will increase the total output to an impressive 720 HP.

2013 srt viper sales to be restricted at launch

Article file under

If you can't wait to get your hands on the 2013 SRT Viper, you'd better get used to twiddling your thumbs unless you're a member of the Viper Club of America.

According to MSNBC, initial sales of the highly-anticipated model will be restricted to loyal customers. This is a nice way of rewarding previous clients and will likely ensure the first batch of production vehicles doesn't end up on eBay with a huge mark-up.

As we have previously reported, the 2013 SRT Viper will debut at the New York Show before being launched later this year. Specifications remain a mystery, but rumors suggest the car will have an 8.7-liter V10 engine with more than 600 hp (450 kW / 608 PS) and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque.

Latest 2013 ferrari 599 prototype spy photos in Maranello

Article file under

Here are the latest spy photos of the Ferrrari 599 replacement, codenamed F152, taken during some tests on public roads as well as the famous Ferrari entrance in Maranello.

As previously reported, the F152 is rumored to forgo a carbon fiber body, like the ones found in the Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren MP4-12C, in favor of an aluminum body structure due to high construction costs and little benefit to performance.

Speculated to carry the name F620, the new front-engine rear-wheel drive supercar will be based on the new Ferrari FF and use the same 6.3-liter V12 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Power output is expected to increase from the FF's 660 PS (485 kW / 651 hp) to 710 PS (522 kW / 700 bhp).

The F620 is expected to have it world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.
