2011 Hyundai Sonata, Luxury For Family

2011 Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai strives to set itself apart in the sedan market in 2010, with green marketing, and complete redesigns. The 2011 Sonata, which comes in three different flavors, is a contender in the mid-size sedan market with bold styling and green engine technology. Claiming to destroy the mold that most sedans have been made from, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata breathes renewed spirit into the niche, offered in GLS, SE, and Limited editions.

2011 Hyundai Sonata
As anyone with a family will attest, safety in a vehicle becomes priority one, and tops the list of standard features found in the Sonata. For example, the 2011 Sonata comes equipped with electronic stability control, which enables drivers to carefully out maneuver any obstacles on the road. What better way to protect passengers than to avoid the accident in the first place? But when the worst happens, the 2011 Sonata’s reinforced unibody design coupled with advanced front airbags makes for the safest family car on the road.

Outside, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata looks like a much more powerful vehicle than it really is and camouflages it’s ability to be a fuel efficient car capable of seating five. Underneath the hood the Sonata comes equipped with a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder, which is capable of 200 horsepower. Despite the big power numbers from a small engine, the 2011 Sonata is also capable of delivering a staggering 35 miles per gallon. Thanks to fuel efficient technology like ‘Continuously Variable Valve Timing’ and even sport tuned suspension allows the 2011 Sonata to meet Ultra Low Emission Vehicle standards.

All work and no play makes Sonata a dull boy, that’s why Hyundai thought well enough to equip the 2011 with fun features like 400 watt Infinity sound system. Hard to believe but the sun roof even comes as standard equipment on the SE and Limited editions of the SE. For the thrill of driving a high end car, Hyundai even equipped the 2011 Sonata with push button start, that is capable of sensing if the keys are in your pocket.

The interior of the Sonata appears luxurious, with ergonomic engineering and design that makes the car appear to be much more expensive than the $19,000 price tag. Hyundai Sonata drivers will be fortunate to set in comfortable seats, designed by special Seat Engineers. Drivers also have access to a whole host of technological goodies like Dual Climate Control, rearview camera, navigation system, HOMELINK, and even an iPod Jack as standard. The new 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a family sedan worthy of Bill Gates at a price we can all afford

Dodge Nitro Detonator, Igniting Performance

2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator
Promising to deliver more style, capability, and value than ever, Dodge has released a special edition Nitro called the Detonator. For the 2010 Nitro model lineup Dodge has added more of everything, including power, restyled interior and exterior cues, that will come in 3 distinct editions including the Nitro Shock, Heat, and Detonator. Supporting the claim that the new 2010 Nitro offers more value, Dodge has made many options standard on the Detonator edition, that were otherwise nickel and dime’d into the previous SXT models.

2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator
Instead of relying on past years model labeling like RT, SXT, and others established by the Dodge brand, Dodge is now using exciting names. For example, the Detonator is most comparable to the 2009 Nitro SXT, except for the addition of options to make it a better deal. Standard features of the 2010 Detonator include better safety equipment, 20″ MOPAR painted and polished rims, decals, massive speaker system, and even Dodge’s ParkSense rear-park assist technology.
2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator Wheel
If you subscribed to the theory that past Nitro models offered more bark than bite, you’ll be happy to know they improved horsepower and torque across the entire lineup. The 2010 Nitro Detonator comes with 23% more horsepower and 12% more torque. 260 horsepower and 265 lb ft of torque is delivered via a 4.0 liter V6, which powers all three aptly named Nitros.
2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator
Somehow Dodge has managed to cram more power and a plethora of interior upgrades at an attractive price point. For just $25,995, buyers are treated to color matched cloth interior that matches the exciting exterior paint job. The 2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator debuted at the Detroit Auto Show featured an eye plucking yellow, complete with fender decals. From the looks, the bark is still there, but with the added performance, extra standard options, the bite can be felt. According to the official Dodge website, the 2010 Dodge Nitro Detonator should start igniting dealer show rooms soon.

Mitsubishi RA Concept Car

Mitsubishi RA Concept Car
Research and development teams at Mitsubishi have been working on building a car that can combine a green personality with a high performance demeanor. The Mitsubishi RA concept car is the result of such an endeavor. The RA was built to utilize clean diesel technology without sacrificing adrenaline producing performance. Like most concept cars, it’s extreme in it’s design and aspirations, but worth taking a look at.
Mitsubishi RA Concept Car
Drive train wise the RA concept car is comparable to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. It features Super-All-Wheel-Control (S-AWC), which helped make the Evolution a winning rally car capable of maneuvering over the roughest terrain. Included in this system is stability control which is capable of adjusting torque and braking to help maintain a straight line. When all components are working together it provides maximum traction, control, cornering, and vehicle stabilization.
Mitsubishi RA Concept Car
Powering the RA concept car is a 2.2 liter 4 banger 16 valve turbo diesel engine. To achieve it’s high efficiency while maintaining performance attributes, the engine features Mitsubishi’s MIVEC that offers constant variable valve timing control. The small liter engine is capable of producing just over 200 horsepower, but an amazing 300 ft lb of torque. This high torque engine, coupled with the light weight design of the RA, makes for performance you can feel in the seat of your pants. Consider this, the RA’s engine produces more torque than the 4.6 liter V8 found in the 2010 Ford Mustang.
Mitsubishi RA Concept Car
Exterior wise, the RA concept car reminds me of the legendary Eclipse. What sets this Mitsubishi apart is it’s diesel engine and full time all wheel drive. It’s like Mitsubishi took the best parts of the Lancer Evolution and mated it with the sexy body lines of the latest generation Eclipse. They even went so far as to add Lambo Doors, just like many after market car enthusiasts do to customize their rides.
No indication has been made that the RA Concept Car will actually be produced, but its a great platform to build upon. Any research and development done to further performance and efficiency deserves everyone’s attention

2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI

2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Big changes, at least cosmetically, have gripped the upcoming 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Gone is the narrow body, the 2011 will be sporting an all new redesigned wide body platform with stability to match. The first change from the 2010 WRX STI to the 2011 is the widened front bumper, featuring sharp angles, and matching stretched fog lights. But that’s not where the changes end, this upgrade to the STI comes in 2 different model types, both spelled with a four letter word…fast!
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
The 2011 WRX STI front bumper wraps the blacked out fog lamps in a 3-dimensional styled lip spoiler. This aggressive styling, coupled with a fresh grill and blackened base makes this STI an intimidating ride on any road. Not all the wide cosmetic changes affect just the front end, the rear of the car also benefits from wider rear fenders. Furthermore, for the first time ever, Subaru is offering the 2011 Impreza WRX STI in two model types, 4 and 5 door versions.
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
New in 2011 is a freshly tuned suspension, which offers a lower riding height than previous years. The 2011 STI shown at the 2010 New York Auto Show featured a higher spring rate setup, which eased the chassis down on 18″ rims. The impressive stance coupled with a high luster paint set the car apart amongst a sea of vehicles looking to compete with the longing stares of consumers. What’s great about the Imprezza WRX STI is that it can back up the bark with a high performance bite, rivaling cars twice the price.
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Not only has the 2011 Impreza WRX STI gone on a diet, but it also features the juiced up 4 cylinder from the 2010 model years. 305 horsepower from a turbo charged and intercooled 4cylinder, linked to a 6-speed manual transmission makes even a trip to the grocery store a thrill. As in previous STI’s the 2011 features a transmission capable of multiple settings, which allow the driver to select performance points to fit their own driving style. All of the auto settings are built upon Subaru’s infamous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Inside the 2011 WRX STI, things haven’t changed a whole lot. There’s a new color scheme for the seats and panels, wrapped in black and silver highlights. Also, trim on parts of the dash and switches show off a new for 2011, Dark Cast Metallic.
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
The 2011 Impreza WRX STI will rocket into Subaru show rooms some time later this year. Industry analysts expect the sporty multi-door to be priced close to the 2010 model year, at around $35,000

Prior Design Mercedes-Benz SL R230 PD Series

Prior Design revealed their most recent work just in time for the industry trade fair “Tuning World Bodensee”. For your approval and consideration: we present the PD-Series based on the Mercedes-Benz SL R230.
The goal of the Kamp-Lintfort company was to transform the seemingly bulky Mercedes-Benz SL R230 into something more ideal and appealing. Thus, they came up with a design clearly inspired by the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. This new aesthetic package for the SL R230 is comprised of a smooth and sleek form, huge air intakes and powerfully built sides to impress every enthusiast to date.

Looking at specific elements, let’s start with the front of the vehicle. The first thing that will catch any viewer’s eye is the incomparable breadth of the vehicle granted by the awe-inspiring size of the fenders. From the fender of the car, the eyes are drawn to the front area using smooth lines. After examining the facelift headlights equipped on the car, the viewer will then notice a front mounted spoiler with big, imposing air intakes. The hood is also equipped with several air intakes reaching up into the windshield, supplying much needed air to racing tuned engines.
Large rims making up the side area of the car give the vehicle an intimidating look commanding recognition. Side skirts are expertly placed to connect the sides making it seem as if the entire body work of the vehicle was made to form a single piece.

Checking out the car further will inevitably bring the viewer to the rear of the car, where the curve of the fenders gives an impression that the SL R230 is incredibly broad and spacious. The two rear fenders are connected by a flawlessly contoured rear bumper, where one can find a diffuser available either in full or slight carbon fiber.
A unique wheel tire combination set has been custom-made for PD series. Each rim is made from a three-part stainless steel outer bed with a black finish. The two front tires are measure 10x20 inches with 265/30 R20, while the rear tires measure 12x20 inches with 305/25 R20.
Suspension settings can be fully customized by the driver, mechanically or electronically, using an incorporated Airmatic system.

Hulme CanAm Bear 1 Test Car

The Hulme CanAm is named after Denny Hulme, New Zealand’s racing prodigy and F1 World Champion. It is the only road-legal supercar to carry the name of an F1 Champion, and it doesn’t disappoint. The vehicle is said to achieve speeds of above 200 mph, and comes in the form of a high-performance mid-engine roadster. The car is intended for use both in open roads and the racetrack, combining raw power, outstanding craftsmanship, extraordinary performance, and is guaranteed to provide any driver with an exhilarating driving experience.

Under the hood of the Hulme CanAm is a 7-liter Chevrolet LS7 V8 Engine, producing a monstrous 600 horsepower balanced out by 600 Nm of torque. Control for this whopping amount of power is accomplished via a close-ratio, six-speed CIMA manual transmission, where paddle or sequential transmission is also an option. Due to the construction of the vehicle, the car weighs less than a ton, and 600 hp for a lightweight car means that the Hulme CanAm can accelerate from 0 to 100Kph in less than three and a half seconds.
Despite the incomparable performance values of the vehicle, the guiding principle maintained by Hulme engineers in designing the car has been to focus on driving enjoyment. Power distribution and aerodynamics maximize the car’s handling on either the road or a racetrack. The Hulme Can Am is developed and hand-crafted by the Hulme technology team, and their design paid off in granting the car a lightweight carbon composite chassis and body, along with racing tuned suspension and braking.

Each Hulme CanAm Bear 1 Test Car costs a deposit of £10,000 for an option to order. An enthusiast would want to take note of the fact that only 20 of these supercars from New Zealand will be put into production. The managing director of Hulme, Jock Freemantle, guarantees that the deposit is fully refundable if the option is not escalated into an order, or if the order for this supercar is not satisfied. Before the car is introduced at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed, a private viewing and test drive will be made available to those who have purchased an option to order the vehicle. If the potential buyer is not satisfied and wants to cancel the option to order, his funds will be immediately refunded

G-Power BMW M3 GT2 S and the M3 Tornado CS

Performance wise, both modified BMWs rely on the same SK II S supercharged V8 engine. This engine produces 600 horsepower at 7800 rpm, and 580 Nm of torque at 5300 rpm. Both vehicles clock in at a top speed of 320 Km/h, or 205 mph, through a 6-speed manual transmission.

There are slight differences for the acceleration values of both vehicles. The BMW M3 Tornado CS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, while the BMW M3 GT2 S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. The M3 Tornado CS can accelerate from 0 to 200 in 11.8 seconds.
Looking at the body work, the GT2 S is equipped with a carbon fiber body kit. The front, rear and side skirts along with all four fenders covering the front and rear wheels are modified and replace and changed into carbon fiber parts to reduce the overall weight of the car. Additionally, a front and rear mounted carbon fiber spoiler improves the vehicle’s aerodynamic potential. On the other hand, a hood mounted carbon spoiler and a rear carbon diffuser on the M3 Tornado CS compensate for the spoilers equipped on the GT2 S, helping the M3 Tornado CS achieve greater down-force.

There is also a difference in the rims and tires equipped between the two BMWs. G-Power decided to use forged Silverstone Clubsport alloy rims on the Tornado CS, measuring 9x20 inches in the front and 10.5x20 inches in the rear. For the GT2 S, G-Power went along with using Silverstone RS forged rims with measurements of 9x20 inches for the front and 11.5x20 inches for the rear. The Tornado CS uses a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tires, while the GT2 S is equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.

GTA Spano

The 2010 GTA Spano features a glass roof. This innovative feature is complimented by a unique lighting and opaqueness system. The chassis of the vehicle is made from a combination of carbon fiber, titanium and Kevlar. The car’s composition and general form is inspired by aeronautic technology. It is equipped with a rear mounted 8-liter supercharged V10 engine producing an outrageous 780 horsepower, kept in check using a six speed sequential manual transmission or a semi-automatic paddle shift transmission similar to those used in F1 racecars. These features make the GTA Spano the fastest, road legal automobile in Spain, since it can accelerate from 0 to 100 Km/h in just 2.9 seconds, achieving a top speed of over 350 Km/h. An AP Racing Carbon-Ceramic braking system is equipped on the vehicle. This includes a forced ventilation system, 6 piston brake calipers and an ABS system.

GTA Motors wanted a concept that emulated competitiveness, uniqueness and sophistication. They wanted to design a car that has not been seen to date. Their aim to produce such a revolutionary automobile certainly paid off.
Examining the side of the car, one can see that the doors fit flawlessly into the air intakes. Also, the doors do not have handles and access into the vehicle is achieved by pressing the GTA logo. This layout assists in aerodynamics and lowers the temperature of certain parts of the car such as power steering, brakes and oil coolers to name a few.

The front of the car dictates a strong and smooth image, observed from the huge side-mounted air intakes and its rounded hood. The rear of the car is characterized primarily with the use of glass, which improves air flow under the car and cools down the engine. There are two additional air intakes at the rear and the vehicle uses a twin muffler system, highlighting the vehicle’s racing capabilities. A set of four custom-made, angled rims are mounted around the car; 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear using Pirelli P Zero tires. Only 99 units of this supercar will be produced and exclusively distributed.

RZ Ultima Concept

The Ultima GTR was introduced a decade ago in the year 2000. It could run up a strip at full speed in below ten seconds. It had the fastest response rates with the quickest acceleration and deceleration from 0 to 100 mph and vice versa. Any production car would trail behind this sort of performance.

Now, a new concept has been released based on the Ultima GTR. Enthusiasts of the original GTR will appreciate all of its performance re-integrated into a modern, more refined look. The new RZ Ultima concept is still in its design phase, but once put into production it can be the greatest supercar.
The guiding principle in developing the 2010 RZ Ultima GTR is that the chassis and transmission of the original 2000 Ultima GTR would remain unchanged. Racer X Design highly valued the frame of the vehicle, since they believed that the original frame of the GTR epitomized the essential qualities of a supercar: tremendously fast, tasteful, elegant and exclusive. The RZ Ultima GTR ensures supercar quality to enthusiasts and more.

Racer X Design is a company that has developed and assembled a few of the best show cars to date. The company was constantly awarded first place in the XLR-8 live competition, Racer X Design offers a myriad of body detailing services, from developing vehicles for car shows to building full concept cars.

TopCar Porsche Panamera Stingray

TopCar recently released the Stingray set of enhancements to augment the already tremendous performance and eye-popping looks of the 2010 Porsche Panamera.
First off, the appearance of the newly refitted 2010 Porsche Panamera Stingray by TopCar exemplifies astounding form filled with elegance and poise.

The entire body kit of the car has been constructed with lightweight and stylish carbon fiber. A front mounted chin spoiler is positioned above the front apron, which in turn has wide air intakes. Complementing this design is a sleek and smooth carbon fiber hood with built-in air inlets. Side skirts expand the width of the rear apron, adding to the overall striking appearance of the car. Forged R21 light alloy rims give the car an imposing appearance without sacrificing efficient weight distribution. Moreover, the new Panamera Stingray gets a harmonious finish to its new look from a new rear spoiler, and it fits perfectly over the retractable original. Enthusiasts will also appreciate that engineers have used Nappa Leather for the interior, supported by a carbon fiber chassis, further reducing the weight of the Panamera Stingray. The construction of the entire body kit is exceptionally aerodynamic and lightweight, reducing the vehicle’s final drag coefficient to 0.24.

Now let’s look at the performance of the improved Panamera Stingray. The most dominant performance upgrade is the new pair of mufflers that enables the Panamera to produce a thunderous 550 horsepower. The vehicle’s suspension has also been tuned to racing specifications, giving it an ultra low ground clearance. This grants the car more down-force and increased acceleration.

Most Stolen Cars in America – Top 10 List

There is nothing like the feeling that you get when shopping at the mall or working at your job all day and heading back out to your car just to see that it is no longer there and has been stolen. A car is stolen every 26 seconds in the United States costing Americans millions of dollars. Every year, Insurance companies release their lists of the country’s Top Ten Stolen Cars. These lists give consumers an idea of what cars to not buy if they want to minimize the chance of this happening.
1) 1994 Honda Accord: A popular car with the consumers is also a popular car with the thieves. With this kind of popularity, there is a high demand for parts to keep them running.
2) 1995 Honda Civic: A very popular car in the 1990s makes the Civic a popular target for thieves. Many people like to by used ones to fix these cars up creating a demand for aftermarket parts.

3) 1989 Toyota Camry: Being such a reliable car in the early 90s mean there is a demand for parts keeping thieves busy puts this car on the Top Stolen Car list.

4) 1997 Ford F-150 Pickup: Being one of the most popular trucks on the market puts the Ford F-150 on one of the most popular trucks to be stolen. Many other trucks produced by Ford use many of the same parts giving reason why this is probably so popular.

5) 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup: Being the fact that the 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup is a work truck, possibly filled with building supplies or more expensive cargo probably gives thieves incentive to snatch one of these vehicles if to come upon one.

6) 2000 Dodge Caravan: Hard to believe that minivans are actually on this list but they are. The 2000 Dodge Caravan makes it to number 6 on this list probably due to the double sliding doors making the van such a good cargo carrier.

7) 1996 Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee: A classy SUV for the mid-nineties, the 1996 Jeep Cherokee/ Grand Cherokee is a favorite among thieves. Hard to believe with all the problems they had with the drivetrain.

8 ) 1994 Acura Integra: Noted for the popularity of street racers keeps the 1994 Acura Integra on the list for cars most stolen. This quick little car is a favorite for high performance and reactive speed.

9) 1999 Ford Taurus: The Ford Taurus was a very popular economical car during the late 1990s making parts to currently keep them running in today’s economy also very popular. Because of this, the Ford Taurus is on the Top ten Cars Most Stolen list.

10) 2002 Ford Explorer: A very popular SUV for the early part of the 2000s was the 2002 Ford Explorer. Mixed with the fact that many other Ford vehicles shared many parts put this vehicle on the Top Ten Most Stolen Vehicle list.
