  • Audi’s electrified future.

    The introduction of mild hybrids to Audi’s model range is set to edge efficiency ever closer to the kind of economy figures enjoyed by TDI owners. But it doesn’t mean the death of the diesel engine, as the introduction of cutting edge technology can be paired to both TDI diesel and TFSI petrol engines. Audi says that within ten years, its entire model range will feature the technology. The key elements of the new system are an 11 Ah capacity lithium-ion battery pack and belt starter generator, with the latter replacing the current starter motor. Coasting becomes possible from around 9mph upwards, so that if the driver takes their foot off the accelerator, the car will coast along for a short time with the engine off, saving fuel. It’s possible to recuperate up to 5kW (7bhp), with the generator returning that power, reducing fuel usage and boosting economy as a result. And while this system can be integrated into current 12-volt systems, Audi is on the verge of announcing that it will put a new 48-volt system into production, with a capacity of harnessing 12kW (16bhp), that will allow coasting for up to 30 seconds, delivering even better efficiency compared to the 12-volt system. The company first gave a glimpse at the technology in the Prologue Concept car last year at the Los Angeles motor show. Other benefits of the introduction of a 48-volt electrical system includes the ability to have much smaller cable cross sections, reducing the weight of the wiring harness, and because it has four times the power, there’s opportunities to add additional innovative technology for the suspension and drivetrain. Further into the future, Audi’s engineers plan to convert the auxiliary systems, like pumps, superchargers for the engine, transmission and air conditioning system to 48 volts. Today these are driven hydraulically or by the engine, but in the future they will be powered by electricity and lighter and more compact. Audi will soon announce an electromechanical active roll stabilisation system, which features an electric motor and a three-stage planetary gearbox that separates the two halves of the stabiliser from each other. For relaxed and comfortable driving, the two halves are decoupled, resulting in cossetting ride comfort. For the sportier driver, the tubes are interconnected and twist against each other, delivering a tauter, more dynamic ride, and less roll when cornering. The front and rear stabilisers can also be adjusted independently allowing even greater degrees of fine tuning. The system is also capable of harnessing energy, and the motor can act as a generator, converting it to electrical energy. But Audi’s engineers are already looking at a second, more advanced project using the 48-volt setup, though it is still in the very early prototype stage. Being developed under the working title of eROT, an electromechanical rotary damper replaces today’s hydraulic item. The system isn’t too far apart from the active roll stabilisation arrangement in terms of basic principles, but a strong lever arm absorbs all of the forces that occur on a bumpy road, and via a series of gears, the force is transmitted into an electric motor, which then converts it to electricity. Recuperation is, on average, around 150 watts on an average road, with a freshly resurfaced road generating as little as 3 watts, while a badly maintained country lane may generate as much as 613 watts. Over a cross section of different roads, CO2 emissions savings could be as much as 3g/ km or four to five mpg.
  • BMW news.

    Just weeks after the new 7 Series arrived in BMW showrooms, the German firm has revealed prices for the more powerful 740d editions. Paired exclusively to xDrive fourwheel- drive, the 3.0-litre turbocharged engine develops 316bhp and a mighty 502lb ft of torque. But despite this, the most frugal edition is still quoted as being able to achieve 55.4mpg on the combined cycle, and emits 134g/km. Prices start at Ј72,060 for the 740d xDrive and top out at Ј79,675 for the long wheelbase 740Ld xDrive M Sport model. These flagship editions are available to order now.
  • Life in the old dog yet....

    It might not be as light on its feet as its newer rivals, but Yam’s smooth, secure, comfy FJR1300 is still a valid tourer. Updates a couple of years back - multi-function dash, flashy finish, better suspension, high-tech options - added class, and for ’16 there’s more refinement. It’s got a six-speed gearbox at last, for both better acceleration and more relaxed cruising, plus an ‘assist and slipper’ clutch based on the R1’s system. Got LED lights too and a matt silver paint option, plus AE/AS versions have cornering lights.

  • 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe
    The F-Type R Coupe is something totally different that amazes the customers. It has a brand of its own. The customers may assume that the car is just the same as the previous versions, but besides having the same basic dimensions and proportions, the car is entirely different. The car has the same narrow interior and a sweeping roofline, which is very beautiful. The rear view featured by the model is much as the E-type Coupe. The customers can get the roof panel as aluminum or even panoramic glass according to his or her choice. But, the weight of the roof is what kills the performance of this super model. ...see full review

  • 2014 McLaren 12C Coupe
    It has a separate spider version which is heavier than the normal version by 90 pounds. The spider version of this car is electrically operated and is convertible. The seats are a bit too broad and wide, which are comfortable no doubt, but can be reduced a little bit. The trunk is also spacious and can accommodate medium sized bags along with a few small backpacks. Its shifter paddle is very lightweight and can be stretched to two sides along the steering column. But the navigation system is a disappointment as it does not functions properly at all the locations. The sensors which were earlier somewhat irritating have also been improvised and modified. ...see full review

  • 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan
    Hyundai has come with its latest outlet sample in the last October; the best result outcome with 2015 Genesis Sedan at South Korea. But as of one the whole work of the engineers for our lavish drive on roads seem to be hopeless as of which is simply not justifiable to our hunt especially making the trip as a striking flop at box office itself with no reasons of course not explainable too. For a finer reach of our roads, the British is taking pain to tune the cars accordingly that has become the toughest task to perform at. ...see full review
