Interior and exterior of Shelby GT500

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Review
Ford Mustang Shelby
The Mustang Shelby GT500 has always been easily differentiated from the other Shelbys due to the distinguished exteriors and the signature curved Cobra symbol on the front fenders and the front grille, not to forget the amazingly efficient heat extractors, the aluminum power hood, and the Shelby front that is exclusive with its deck lid spoiler, back diffuser, and the back fascias. The two versions, the convertible and the one with the coupe come with racing bands on both the sides and the top with 18 inch aluminum wheels that are forged and painted.
The interior of the car has leather sport stripes matching the exterior ones and the new feature for 2012 model will be the new sun visor that has illuminated double pride mirrors, simply brilliant. The Shelby comes with a list of impressive options and to add to that, two more have been included. The first one is the ‘dual zone control of the climate’ and ‘navigation’, called the novel electronics package, they come at $3,242 and the second one is the upgraded and new aluminum wheels that are about 18X9.4 in the front and 19X8.4 at the back, this is called the performance package and is priced at $2,994.
The engine of the new mustang will essentially be the same as the older version. It is a 103 pound machine which is lighter than the older version with all new aluminum block 4.5 liter pressurized V7 engine that offers 505 feet lb torsion and 500 hp. It matches a five speed physical transmission and offers a fuel utilization of 14 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway.
Competition
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 2012 takes on many models like the Dodge Viper and the BMW M3 and since the Viper is pretty much out of production, the only big competitor the mustang has is the M3 as of now. The M3 has a V8 engine that offers a 390 hp, maximum torsion of 410 nm or 285 lb-ft, and comes with an engine speed of 2,901 rpm. The coupe version is available at $48,402 and can be exchanged at $57, 051 and that is another plus point for the Shelby as it comes at a much lesser price.
The Corvette the coupe is normally available at $38,953 and the convertible is available at $43,602. These cars have a 420 hp aluminum block that offers 180 mph during testing. Both the cars, the Corvette and the Shelby carry a very strong fan base and looking the competitive features both the cars offer, it is completely the customers’ choice that will decide the sales decision. For one, the Shelby is faster than the Corvette but is also tad expensive in comparison.

Electric Taxi- The Reignited Miracle in Automobile Business

The concept of Electric taxi, saying in a broader circumference- electric car, is not new to the world, though it has not been in effect in a larger scale before 2010. Taxi services all over the world are getting prepared to turn their services in all electric form from decades. But, it is Nissan, who released their first mass market electric car in 21th century.
Electric vehicles are mainly of three categories- those that take power directly from an external power station, those that take power from stored electricity (which is originally stored from an external power source), and those that receive power from on-board electric generator (for instance, internal combustion engine or a hydrogen fuel cell).
In last few decades, the petroleum-based vehicles cost the environment in brutal ways. Petrol, Gasoline and fossil fuels pollute the environment with CO2 in larger scale which has fueled the Green House Effect. The Ozone layer has been suffering from constant heat created in earth. Ice caps are melting in mass scale. Though all of these are not happening because of petroleum-based vehicles, but they surely have a contribution in this killing of nature. And there comes the re-ignition of electric vehicles.
Though, the world has seen its first motorized taxi in 1897 ( created by Gottlied Daimler), which was sold to Stuttgart Transportation to start world’s first motorized company, still it is an upcoming era of electric taxi even in 21th century. In 1899, Thomas Alva Edison began his quest to create a long-lasting and powerful battery for commercial automobiles. But, due to the lack of technical support in that time, Edison abandoned that project after a decade.
It is seen nowadays, fossil fuels are getting short in stock in all over the world and these fuels are polluting the nature beyond limitation. Now, using fossil fuels costs a fortune, let alone its impact on the nature. For these reasons, automobiles companies are eager to launch electric cars in mass level. Taxi companies are also seeing their profit in this new generation of vehicles. Electric taxies can reduce their cost and they know, this service will give them more benefit even from the moral perspective of mass people in competition with other companies.
EcoCab is the first ever all electric taxi service in United States. Following the lead, and going in parallel ways, many companies have taken initiatives to roll their electric taxies on the road. Reputed companies naturally prefer to use cars from well reputed manufacturers. Coda Automotives, Wheego electric Cars, Nissan, Tesla Motors, Think, Fisker Automotive, Tango Commuter Cars, BYD, GEM, SABA Motors and Venturi are the leading car manufacturer companies which have been the reliable provider for electric cars for last few years
Recently Ireland has launched their first E-Taxi from National Radio Cabs and The ESB. A night’s charge can roll the wheels and even in day Fast Charge Points enable drivers to charge the cars from 0 to 80% in less than 30 minutes. In London, Taxi companies are using Nissan Leaf, Renault Fluence to run their electric taxi service. The revolution, which is being started in whole Europe, is also setting its foot all over the world.
That day is not far, when the readers of this article will travel on electric taxi service and that will put a smile on their face for the fare and the welfare of the environment.

Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk VI Costs £22,000

Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk There is no doubt that the world has seen an explosive increase in knowledge when it comes to automotive technology. Different car manufacturers had made it a point to make their products exceptional in terms of durability and functionality while making it affordable at the same time. If one does not have the right knowledge and guides on how to choose the right car, there is a higher chance that the choice made is regretted. As this might be the case, it is highly recommended to take a look at the different possibilities and options currently available in the market today. One of the products that one might consider is the Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk VI.

 

It was announced that Mk VI VW GTI will be made available this summer but it might not make it in the limelight because of the public’s main focus on the RS which seem to monopolize the market today. There are two main reasons that this will most likely to happen in summer. First and foremost, Golf’s size and overall design may not be too appealing to the general public. The next reason is that golf’s engine is not too powerful compared to other car types and brands.

While there are many disadvantages or drawbacks that make Golf unattractive for buyers, there are still reasons to love this car. Volkswagen still has tricks hidden in it sleeves.

Volkswagen has truly outdone itself when it took a MK GTI and also gave it a little twist to produce essential compliments. The engine is lighter compared to others but it offers more power with the least energy consumption as possible. As one examine the car, an individual will notice that it has less number of slip to make the chassis more powerful. Golf can also offer cushion and fashion statement with just one simple push of a button. The exhaust is also a great additional feature because of its 2-litre German hatchback maximum capacity.

The overall progress of the car is truly amazing. The latest GTI has been modified to take on a new face that will surely be a great wheel to drive during the summer afternoon and the new look will also get an aftermarket sales. There are many additional features added to its visual appearance such as the new style headlights, fog lights, and grille which are all located at the right places. The wheels of the color are black together with the inserts. All of these features look exceptional just like having a date in Nandos.

Another feature of Golf is that it can make a great car to easily maneuver through traffic and narrow roads. Generally, Golf is lighter compared to most cars, thus it can reach maximum speed within just a few seconds. It has a maximum speed of 240 kph,

Since there are other competitors of Volkswagen Golf, one can see a future where this car will have improvements in different aspects especially on its appearance. Of course, Volkswagen still wants to stick with their conventional box type look.

Nissan Tiida 2012 Car review


Nissan Tiida 2012 Car
Nissan Tiida 2012 is well packed together car by Nissan. It’s an advanced development and improvement taking over from the famous Pulsar and Nissan Sunny. This car surprised many designers due to its amazing and fascinating features. It even led to a major drop in the sales of the other types of cars like Pulsar and Nissan Sunny.
Nissan Tiida offers a variety of modern features for current and modern styled vehicles such as air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and many more interesting features. The idea Nissan Company has taken in face-lifting their previous models; Pulsar /Nissan Sunny has actually bestowed a decent and complete transformation in its appearance. It’s very clear that, given the correct equipment tradition could possibly appear completely attracting and interesting.
Moreover, Tiida has very good inside quality features and engine making it the right car that offers you a lot of satisfaction when cruising in the streets. It has a remarkable and enough space for commodities with the back seats folded and even for legs. You don’t have to strain while sitting especially the tall people. The back seats can accommodate about three people sitting very comfortably and contentedly.
However, the ride has some shortcomings especially to do with over bumping though it’s better and preferable to Ford Focus but there is need for little improvement. Again, the car slightly bounces up and down endlessly when driving on uneven segments of the roads. On the other hand, the Ford Focus produces strong constant thud on the same roads. Many times the drivers won’t notice these issues and thus I would rather you think about Nissan Tiida for a check drive.
For just 799,000 baht you will have your 1.8 liter Nissan Tiida that will guarantee you an exceptional performance and its worth your money.

There is usually a great car under a dull body and therefore you should never ignore what you see from the outside. Appearances may put you off sometimes. For this car when it loses some of its value you can always add slight makeup or structure it and sale it and you will obtain a good value from it.

World most popular cars 2012

Exports and imports of different cars in the world is a very big industry. Automotive production has a lion’s share in the economy and it is one of the reasons that most countries survive the global international crisis.

As this might be the case, the demand and supply in the car industry dramatically has changed during the past few years. Most consumers do not care much about how luxurious their car is. They put practicality over caprice. This shift in attitude might primarily be because of the increasing economic meltdown that is now taking places in many countries.

 

Chevrolet Cruze

This car is the flag carrier of GM as an attempt to expand the scope and market of Chevrolet. It is estimated that the car will cost not more than $20,000 but of course, it might go beyond that with added features and specifications. Chevrolet Cruze is also known as the Holden Cruze or Lacetti Premiere.

Ford Fiesta

Ford, as one of the largest automotive producers worldwide, has never failed to come up with superior and high class cars. Ford Fiesta is a proof of that fact. Estimated to cost at around $14,000, Ford takes on a new level of automotive production.

Honda Accord

This car may cost $22,000 but its all worth it. The Compact Accord is one of Honda’s finest works. This is exactly what Honda is making with all their products. One may be surprise that each Honda Accord may be different from one country to another. This is solely because Honda tries to modify their cars according to regional preference.


Honda Civic

This car is ideal for driving in narrow streets or in highly urbanized area. Since Honda Civic has a standard size, engine type, and design, it will be easy to maneuver the car. Honda Civic is also flexible when it comes to the type of fuel, be it diesel, leaded, or unleaded.

Toyota Camry

Toyota Camry is one of a kind car and it is larger than most average cars. Considered as a luxury car, it can offer optimum comfort and the best driving experience for its owners. Toyota is one big company that is able to provide top-of-the-line cars.

Toyota Corolla

There has been statistics made that show Toyota corolla as the best-selling car type worldwide. The car can cost at around $16,000. With so much affordability coupled with high performing engines, comfortable seats, and other remarkable features, Toyota Corolla is still the most loved car type.

Toyota Yaris

As a small subcompact car, it is the least popular car of Toyota. Yaris has its brother named Vitz and it does not do so well in the market. But because of its affordability at $13,500, there are still people who buy this car.

Volkswagen Golf

This peculiar box-looking car is a prototypical compact type. It may cost at around $18,000. Volkswagen is currently having some identity crisis in different parts of the world but it still shows some competitive sales over the past few years.

Volkswagen Polo

Volkswagen is will now make Polo available in the U.S. very soon. Since they do well in the local market, it is also estimated that Volkswagen will make a handsome profit in the international market. It is a big car and sometimes it is considered as a family car unlike Honda Accord that most people considered it as a limo.

Audi V10 R-Tronic Review

Audi V10 R-Tronic
The Audi V10 is one of the most prestigious sports cars ever available today. It is German made so its quality and durability can be ensured. The production started in 2006 and its production is still on-going. It was officially introduced to the general public in September 2006 during the Paris Auto Show. By that time, there was a little confusion on its name because it has similarities with the Le Mans Prototype R8.

There are almost 5,000 parts fit together to produce the Audi V10. The assembly area was in Neckarsulm, Germany. The factory can develop five to fifteen cars in just one day. Precision is very important when it comes to creation of cars. This is the reason that the factory uses over 95 lasers to inspect each part if they are within the 0.1 millimeters room for error.

After a certain period of time, Audi V10 has been developed to complement R8. By increasing the number of cylinder, R8 is transformed to V10. The attempt is not even comparable to the metamorphosis of Porsche by just giving it more numbers of turbo. There are no really major differences between the R8 Audi V10 and R8 V8 except that it is now equipped with more cylinders, better brake systems, and other specifications. If you like to have a supercar that you would like to use regularly, then R8 Audi V10 is the perfect choice. With the addition Gallardo audio system, it will also be ideal for different occasions. Do not go for 2 WD as this will be just a poor choice in times of British winter.

Audi V10 is equipped with a 525 bhp engines that can easily maneuver your car in an 8,700 red line by its tremendous power. It is also worth noting that the V8 vehicle has a transparent handling that just superbly increase the controllability of the car. Audi V10 will surely be on your side when you need speed through powerful engines. When you see Audi V10’s price, you might be a little hesitant to buy the super car but you can be rest assured that the money is worth it and you do not have to worry about extra fees because it’s all there is in the price.

Just in case you want to dig deeper and notice the ceramic brakes and R Tronic which some people consider it to be a waste of money, on the contrary, it is a perfect additional feature when you perform some track days. Indeed, there is no denying that Audi V10 is not a track day vehicle because it lack some features but this should not discourage you to buy it. The Audi V10 is primarily designed not for day track because it can offer more than that.
The car is intended to be supplied in various parts of the world. Initially, the car is available in Europe, Bahrain, United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, and South Africa. In 2009, Audio V10 was also exported to Buenos Aires, Lima, Santiago, Santo Domingo, Sao Paulo, Bogota, Mexico City, and Medellin.
