Scion aiming for no less than 20,000 annual FR-S sales

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

2.

The Scion FR-S may be the unfortunate love child created from the Subaru and Toyota sports car collaboration, but the American company still has ambitious plans for its latest sports coupe. It has revealed that it plans on shifting 20,000 units annually for the foreseeable future.

Scion?s vice president Jack Hollis stated that “We’re confident we can sell every one we get our hands on.? So it?s clear that Scion believes the FR-S can help give the brand that little boost of life it?s been looking for for many, many years. Not a great deal of reviews have been published about the Scion FR-S, but if it?s as similar to the Toyota GT 86 and the Subaru BRZ as we?re led to believe, then it should be a true sports car which Scion should be proud to sell.

Just as a quick reminder, the Scion FR-S shares the same 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder engine as both the GT 86 and BRZ, and produces no less than 200HP. Sure that may not sound like a lot, but the FR-S tips the scales at around 2,500 pounds and when combined with a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive, the FR-S promises to be the perfect, affordable driver’s car.

Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series DTM Safety Car

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

With the 2012 DTM season ripping its inaugural race, the time was ripe for the series to introduce the vehicle that would serve as its official safety car. This year, the German Touring Car Masters Championship has tapped the 2013 Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series to serve that role.

Following in the reins of the the C63 AMG, the BMW M3, and a host of several Audis, the C63 AMG Black Series has been fitted with a number of modifications in order to serve its role as the DTM’s official safety car.

Among them include an aerodynamically optimized light bar on the roof and energy-efficient, fast-response LEDs in green and orange. The car also has a modified AMG sports exhaust system and a special rear silencer that allows the car’s 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine to produce 517 horsepower and 457 lb/ft of torque. This makes it capable of hitting 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds with an electronically-limited top speed of 186mph.

For the exterior, the car carries a slew of packages, including an AMG Aerodynamics Package that carries a genuine carbon fiber front splitter on the front apron and a fixed carbon-fiber rear aerofoil with an adjustable blade. It also has the AMG Track package that includes rear axle gear cooling and a set of 19″ forged AMG wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx Race tires. Lastly, there’s the AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber package that includes exterior mirror housings, inserts in the side sill panels, and a diffuser insert, all made from carbon fiber.

For the interior, the C63 AMG Black Series Safety Car was given a pair of AMG Sport bucket seats, each coming with four-point seat belts, and an AMG Performance steering wheel wrapped in Nappa leather and Dinamica.

By Huw Evans

BioGasBus

In Nordic European countries, notably Norway, Sweden and Finland, Biogas is being adopted as a fuel source for both vehicles and power plants.

Sweden has already made use of it in municipal buses, while a similar program in Norway?s capital of Oslo has already seen around one-third of its municipal bus fleet switch to biogas.

California-Only Diesel Fuel To Cost More, Damage Economy?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

How do you solve a problem like diesel? On the one hand, diesel cars are highly fuel-efficient on longer runs, and produce good power and torque figures in their modern-day guise. It’s also vital for the transportation and logistics industry. On the other, diesel cars are more capital and materials-intensive to make, require stricter control of…

But it was no less awesome for that fact, and these videos continue to demonstrate just how awesome it is. Sure, it’s nearly useless, not for sale, and in many ways, a bad idea. But it’s a fantastically bad idea, and…

TopSpeed Rendering: 2014 Mercedes SLC

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

1.

A few days ago, Mercedes Head of Design, Gorden Wagener, officially confirmed that the new baby SLS – also known as the SLC will officially be unveiled sometime in 2014. This new model will take on vehicles like the Porsche 911 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and will be priced from about $130,000.

As previously reported, the future SLC will drop the famous SLS model’s gullwing doors, but will feature the same design language as the current SLS. Under the hood, Mercedes will place a twin-turbocharged 5.4-liter V8 engine with an output of about 500 HP. There were rumors suggesting that the next baby SLS would use an inline-6 engine, but we strongly doubt that Mercedes will drop their usual V8 engine for a sports car. The engine will more than likely be a downsized version of the V8, with its capacity taken to about 4.0 liters, but those are rumors as well.

Video: Nissan Project 370z – Stage One

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Back in February, Nissan announced it needed the help of fans everywhere to design and build the coolest 370Z ever. Called the “Nissan Project 370z,” this project was an extremely successful marketing ploy as it caught the attention of many.

After almost two months, Nissan has announced that Stage One of the project is now complete. In this stage, fans were able to choose the powertrain, turbo kit, exhaust, suspension, and brake setup for the Nissan 370Z. Stage Two is next and it will be all about the car’s design.

The results of Stage One were not surprising; fans want more power! With that in mind, Nissan added a Greddy twin turbo kit that increased the total output to an impressive 500 HP. In order to support the extra power, the new 370Z was equipped with a Greedy Ti-C catback exhaust system. Next, the car was equipped with a KW suspension kit and a stop-tech big brake kit.

That’s pretty much all the work done for right now, but more will follow, so stay tuned!
