VATH Press Release:

“Good optimising” has been the motto of the company VÄTH near the town of Aschaffenburg for more than three centuries. With the tuning kit V25 (for about 1 200 Euros) the performance of the original 204 HP with an unchanged hub room size of 1 796 cm³ has been increased using motor technology to 255 HP (188 kW) and 370 Nm torque. This translates to a new maximum speed of 260km/h, which should in no way be underestimated.

In combination with the VÄTH charged air cooler (€1 118.60 ) and the VÄTH sports exhaust system (€2 011.10), the car can even reach 270 HP!. In addition to the motor-technical improvements, the external appearance of the C-class is part of the obligatory program at VÄTH:

The C class presented here has been upgraded with special modifications to the coveted C63 AMG optic and tuned aerodynamically as well as visually with the VÄTH Carbon Motor bonnet (€4 641), the Carbon Front Spoiler Lip (€1 416.10) as well as through a Rear Diffsor (€1 773.10) made from carbon andTrunk Spoiler (€333.20). Car lowering and a great set of wheels perfect the sporty silhouette.

Speaking of wheels: These are weight-optimised tailored rims 8.5×19 inches in size at the front and 9.5×19 inches at the bank, covered with 235/35ZR19 and 265/30ZR19: this costs around 4046 Euros. The brake system has been adjusted to the new additions to be able to bring the vehicle to a stop much in much less time: 360 mm braking discs with 6 piston fixed gauges at the front and 320 mm braking discs with 4 piston fixed gauges at the back do their job reliably under any circumstances (complete for €5 355).

A complete running gear worthy of a racecourse has also been built in and has height and strength adjustible buffers as well as progressively harmonised springs so that the car drives comfortably on the one hand but still extremely precisely on the road. Carbon can again be found on the interior, this time in combination with an Alcantara roof interior lining (€980.00).

The bottom line is not exhorbitant sums, but a result that can be seen absolutely anywhere.

DeLaSalle Electric Car - Ultra Light-weight Aerodynamic Body

DeLaSalle Electric Car
The new electric car designed by Student DeLaSalle School in Kansas City, Missouri, in collaboration with technical engineers Bridgestone Americas' Center of Akron, Ohio built. The DeLaSalle electric car has just completed testing on Bridgestone's Texas Proving Grounds and its developers believe it may have set a new world record for efficiency.

DeLaSalle The electric car as a class project, led by instructor Steve Rees built. DeLaSalle The electric car is a plug-in electric built in 2000 Lola Indy Car chassis.

The students have developed the DeLaSalle electric car's driveline, electric propulsion system and the full, ultra light-weight aerodynamic body. Dressed with Bridgestone Ecopia EP100 tires, the DeLaSalle electric car managed to get during testing an efficiency equivalent to a 300 mpg fuel consumption.
The developers are petitioning the Guinness World Records to consider their electric car as a new world record.

Specs and New Line Photos - Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport
Bugatti released Bugatti Veyron Super Sport specs list with a new line of photos of the new hypercar. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, will be sold in extremely limited production, but it will be capped at 415 km/h, or 257.8 mph, just over 10 mph short of the actual record speed it reached. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport develops 882 KW (1,200 hp) at 6,400 rpm and 1,500 Nm of torque at 3 000-5 000 rpm.

The top speed of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which is also the record for a production model, is 415 km/h. The car can actually go a lot faster, but it's limited for customer safety. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport needs 2.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h, 7.3 secodsn to reach 200 km/h and 16.7 seconds to reach 300 km/h. Its gearbox shift time is 0.1 seconds.

The official Bugatti Veyron Super Sport specs say the car has a fuel consumption of 37.2 liters / 100 km in the urban cycle and 23.2 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle. Don't be surprised if the actual, day-to-day use, figures a higher.

Fuel consumption is equally brisk, drinking down 6.3 mpg around town and 16.2 mpg on the highway for a Euro combined cycle of 10.2 mpg. But between the $38,000 tires and $21,000 service appointments, the cost of fuel will be the least of the owner's worries.

G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 - Fastest Four-door Sedan in the World

G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5
G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5
G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 of the fastest four-door sedan in the world, The G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 engine tuner SK III bi-compressor, that a massive 750 hp / 551 kW, which developed over minutes at 800 hp 7500-8000 rpm and 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm develops updated equipped min .

The tuner said that the G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 can teleport 0-100 km / h in 4.35 seconds at 200 mph in 9.5 seconds to 300 km / h in 25.8 seconds. The G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 is added to the V10 engine, two ASA T1-316 compressors that can improve the performance of a theoretical 900 hp.

TheG-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 also includes a new aerodynamic package, the front wing and rear skirt, side skirts and a rear spoiler. The interior of the G-Power Hurricane RR BMW M5 contains many improvements, including a 400 mph speedometer, style carbon accents, a sport steering wheel and leather upholstery.

G-Power Press Release:
Following up on the G-POWER M5 HURRICANE RS powered by a G-POWER twin-supercharger engine with 750 hp/551 kW, which has set the record for the ‘world’s fastest sedan’ at 367,4 km/h in early 2010, G-POWER did it again. But this time with 372 km/h! With this target in mind, the development for the new evolutionary HURRICANE RR with 800 hp began. A few weeks ago, the air is tight with tension when the G-POWER engineers give their “go” for the M5 HURRICANE RR to manage the ultimate test:

High Speed. It takes only a few minutes to change the standard 20 inch G-POWER forged wheels to 19 inch ones. The wheels, especially fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires that Michelin are certified for top speeds of more than 370 km/h. The HURRICANE RR is ready to go, the test track as well. Apart from the swop of the wheels the HURRICANE RR is completely standard and relies predominantly on its power of the bi-supercharger engine. And just a few laps later it is done.

The analysis of the engineers states a top speed of 372,1 km/h. World record! Once again to achieve this extreme performance, the twin supercharger system of the high-revving V10 has been redesigned. The two superchargers named ASA T1-313 have been replaced by larger ASA T1-316 units. They are both driven by a belt and do provide each cylinder bank with supercharged air. This means more space for the supercharged air by up to 25 percent. The air volume being transported by these modified superchargers is able to generate a theoretical power output of more than 900 hp.

The pre-compressed air from the superchargers is cooled for a maximum power output. A complicated aluminium casting - painted in G-POWER orange - replaces the standard air box on top of the engine, and its direct inlet is responsible for the spontaneous response characteristics which give the G-POWER motor its incomparable response and also much more torque.

The inner workings of the 10-cylinder, four-valve engine are optimised by light, precisely balanced MAHLE high-performance forged pistons with lower compression and increased mechanical strength. As the standard connecting rods and piston pins were equally not up to the considerably increased forces, here too, recourse was had to special parts. An optimized mapping of the engine electronics also contributes to the increased power output of 800 hp / 588 kW, available between 7,500 and 8,000 rpm. The engine delivers its peak of torque of 800 Nm at 5,000 rpm.

But the G-POWER HURRICANE RR does not only set new performance standards for top speed. With an acceleration of just 4.35 seconds from nought to 100 km/h, 9.5 seconds up to 200 km/h and 25,8 seconds up to 300 km/h the two-ton sedan is also leading his class. The G-POWER technology is available for all current M5 and M6 models. The G-POWER SK III bi-supercharger engine conversion with 750 hp / 551 kW starts at 56,000 Euros (net).

In addition to the most powerful BMW engine ever being fitted to a street-legal BMW M5 a new aerodynamic for maximum efficiency was key. The HURRICANE RR is equipped with the G-POWER “HIGHLINE” body kit. In addition to provide the necessary downforce the body kit is also designed to provide significant more air flow to cool the engine. The body kit consists of front and rear skirts and spoilers, doors render and the rear spoiler.

Two tons of weight and a top speed of 372.1 km/h naturally require extreme demands on the tires, being fitted on special G-POWER forged wheels. Our technology partner Michelin provided high-performance Pilot Sport tires in the dimensions 255/35 ZR 19 at the front axle and 305/30 ZR 19 at the rear axle for this reason. For every day use the G-POWER HURRICANE RR runs on 20-inch Silverstone CLUBSPORT wheels with the dimensions 245/35 ZR 20 and 285/30 ZR 20 front and rear.

Even more contributions to the HURRICANE RR’s high-speed talents are coming from a G-POWER high-performance brake system and the height-adjustable G-POWER RS coilover suspension that is adjustable for both compression and rebound in nine settings.

The interior of the record car features a tachometer reading up to 400 km/h, clear-coated carbon-fiber panels for the dashboard, center console and door panels. An ergonomically shaped G-POWER sports steering wheel with especially perforated Kjerba Nappa leather is completing this package. The G-POWER HURRICANE RR can be ordered as a complete car, only. Any current M5 model – sedan or station wagon – can also be equipped with the individual G-POWER components of the world record holder.
