Four new car models

Dodge Dart:
As part of the Fiat takeover of Chrysler Group during bailout negotiations, the company agreed to build a small, high-MPG model in the U.S. Reopening the Belvidere plant in northwestern Illinois created 1,800 jobs. The Dart is a revival of a Dodge nameplate from the 1960s and 1970s. But the Dart's design is based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, much praised in Europe for its road manners and sprightly handling. (Fiat also owns Alfa Romeo.) 

On sale next month, the compact Dart will start at $15,995 for its base model. It comes with three engine choices: 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter four-cylinder options and a 1.4-liter turbocharged four. The turbo version has an EPA rating of 27 MPG in city driving and 39 on the highway. As a compact, it will compete against the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic, among other highly rated vcars.

 • Ford Focus:
The Ford Focus Electric, going on sale this month, as well as the gasoline versions of the Focus comes from Ford's renovated, flexible plant in Wayne, Mich. Ford says this flexibility keeps down costs because it can produce only as many of the expensive electrics, which run $39,500 before a $7,500 federal tax credit, as it can sell. 

 The gasoline-powered Focus, which went on sale last year as a 2012 model, won praise from reviewers for its pleasing styling and crisp handling. Like some competitors, the Focus also offers comfort and technology features not previously available in small cars. Its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine is rated at 26 MPG in city driving, 36 on the highway. List price ranges from $16,500 for the base model up to $22,700.

 • Chevrolet Sonic:
GM boasts that the Sonic is the only subcompact manufactured in the U.S. The Sonic is being built at the 1,750-employee Orion Township plant outside Detroit. Reviewers have praised the Sonic as a major upgrade in looks, performance, and comfort from the Aveo model it replaces. Available with the same choice of 1.4-liter and 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines as the bigger Chevrolet Cruze, the Sonic ranges in list price from $13,865 for the base model to $18,625.

 • Buick Verano:
This Buick compact is built at the same Orion Township plant as the Chevy Sonic. Producing a small car is part of Buick's shift away from being perceived chiefly as a maker of land yachts for elderly buyers. Reviewers say the Verano works for shoppers looking for a small car with decent power and a comfortable, upscale interior. With a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the Verano is rated at 21 MPG in city driving, 32 highway. List price ranges from $22,585 to $26,809.

Gotthard Base Tunnel Project | The world's longest train tunnel

The Gotthard Base tunnel near Erstfeld is the world's longest rail tunnel. Crossing the Alps, the world's longest train tunnel should become operational at the end of 2016. The train, which is 481 meters (1578 ft) long and weighs 787 tons, is constructed to produce concrete for the installation of the railway tracks in the tunnel. 

The project consists of two parallel single track tunnels, each of a length of 57 km. Scheduled to open in 2016, the main purpose of the Gotthard Base Tunnel is to increase total transport capacity across the Alps, especially for freight. 
The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is a railway tunnel beneath the Swiss Alps expected to open in 2016. With a route length of 57 km (35.4 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, it is the world's longest rail tunnel, surpassing the Seikan Tunnel in Japan. 

A secondary benefit will be to cut the journey time for passenger trains from Zürich to Milan by about an hour and from Zürich to Lugano to 1 hour 40 minutes.

The world's fastest accelerating motorcycle 2012 ZZR1400 is offered by Ninja. Ninja is the trademarked name of a series of Kawasaki sport bikes, which started with the 1984 GPZ900R.

Top Speed Car - Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 2012

Bugatti is lighting up the Auto Show floor with a special edition Bugatti Veyron Super Sport developed especially for the Chinese market. The special edition will be completely painted in black visible carbon, and then combined with an interior that mixes "Snow Beige" and "Beluga Black."

The black carbon paint is combined with polished and anodized aluminum insertions, a new set of alloy wheels, EB logos on the wheel caps, and a fuel filler cap and rear lid. The interior of the Bugatti special edition will get "Snow Beige" leather for the seats, and that color will transfer over to the floors mats and the stitching on the steering wheel as well. The doors and center console are all dressed up in carbon fiber.

Under the hood, everything remains unchanged. This beautiful beast will feature a 16-cylinder engine with a total output of 1200 HP. With this amount of power, the Super Sport will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 267 mph.

Shelby Reveals 950bhp Tuned Mustang

'They' say absolute power corrupts absolutely. We say pish: more is definitively better than less. And with that, may we present to you the Shelby 1000.

It is the most powerful Shelby ever built, and arrives on a wave of history: exactly 50 years ago Carroll Shelby premiered the Cobra at the '62 New York motor show, announcing the arrival of a new tuning house.

So for this year's milestone show, he wanted to set another marker for the ages. Having already achieved Big Numbers with the 800bhp Super Snake, his team of mechanics took the GT500 Mustang, stripped its 5.4-litre Ford V8 down to the block and beefed it up.
The head was flowed, the cooling was revamped and the exhaust was upgraded, and there's now a choice of either a Kenne Bell 3.6-litre or Whipple 4.0-litre supercharger on offer, that can, in Shelby's words, "crank out serious power all day long".

Ah yes, power. The street version produces around 950bhp, while a S/C 1000 track version offers up 1100bhp. The driveshaft is now stronger, mercifully, while the suspension includes new struts, sway bars and bushings, and Shelby tells us they worked closely with Ford Racing, Boria and Tremec to hone the wild ‘Stang.

They also held focus groups with Shelby customers too, who "overwhelmingly" asked for an understated exterior approach. "Everything was engineered and designed with a form follows function philosophy", Shelby VP Gary Davis says.

"For our return to the New York auto show," says Carroll, "I wanted something just as incredible that will show how far we've come and where we're headed for the next 50 years."

Just 50 will be built, and it'll cost you close to $200,000 - around £125k.

Skoda Is Panning a Volkswagen Touareg

Skoda has revealed plans to expand its range with a pair of new SUVs. And we got all the details following a chat with Eckhard Scholz, Skoda’s technical director, at the Geneva show.

Scholz told us: “There are several volume segments we are not currently in. We’re discussing both directions at the moment [MPV and SUV]: personally, I prefer SUVs.”

He continued: “There’s certainly space in the range for two SUVs, one bigger and one smaller than the Yeti. Whatever models we bring, they have to be compatible with our international markets – India, China and Russia.”

While the small SUV will use the VW Group’s new MQB platform, as shown on the VW Cross Coupe concept, the large one would need to be based on the Touareg’s underpinnings.

Scholz hinted: “Our big SUV needs an attractive price. It can’t be luxurious like the Touareg. It has to be practical and attractive. The Yeti is fantastic on road, but not so great off-road. In the bigger SUV segment, it needs to be a different concept with bigger wheels plus different engines and transmissions.”

Scholz didn’t offer a timeframe for these two cars, yet with the VW Group’s parts bin at his disposal, they could arrive in two years. In the meantime, a seven-seater Yeti is on the way.

He denied a Citigo vRS was also planned, using the 109bhp three-cylinder turbo from the VW up! GT, but said that an electric Citigo is in the pipeline and a two-cylinder petrol engine is under consideration.

2013 BMW M6 Convertible to unveil in New York

BMW has revealed their most powerful ever production drop-top in the form of the 2013 F13 M6 Convertible, a car who’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 needs no introduction.

We’re already quite familiar with the car already, but the Bavarians still wanted to show it at a major auto show in America before it hits the market, and so New York was chosen as a venue.

2013 BMW M6 Convertible to unveil in New York

Of the two models, first to arrive on US shores will be the M6 Convertible as a 2012 model year starting in June, while the Coupes will come this summer as a 2013 model year. Pricing will only be revealed at the car’s launch date.

As you might already know, both come with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 560-hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated as standard to a high-torque, seven-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission.

Transport is a major issue for organizers, having to cope with filter roads that are generally blocked with traffic and a creaking undercover system congested during high times.

Organisers are wanting to prevent the preconception that has dogged the 1996 Atl Game titles after some sports sportsmen never appear for their activities on time because of transportation problems.

Last week, associates of the RMT track partnership who perform on the London, uk Underground, known as the pipe, were provided a reward of 850 pounds each to perform during the Game titles, the newest provide in a long-running contest.

RMT had denied past provides, saying too many post were connected, and had officially announced a contest with London, uk Underground, one move short of contacting a poll. But partnership managers said they would consider the newest provide.

Deals have already been arranged with employees on the overground, track system and the key Olympic artery the Docklands Light Train.

"Discussions with the RMT are continuous," the TfL's Movie director of Game titles Transport Level Evers informed the London, uk Construction.

"We are assured that we will have a cope in place with them ... well before Game titles."

The questions by three boroughs to parts of the 109-mile ORN could lead to a judicial evaluation.

The boroughs, in reaction to an established appointment, dispute the ORN could cause traffic jam for companies and control citizens.

The Prime Minister's Task Force on Islamabad has aimed at the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to launch a decent public transport facility for residents of the central assets at the earliest.

public transport

Prime Minister's Task Force on Islamabad Chairman Faisal Sakhi Butt in a meeting held with CDA Chairman Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said that the provision of transfer facility for the residents is a main concern of the task force, which would help overcome the ever-increasing complexity of civic and development problems. He called for some viable solution to resolve the chronic issues of transport facilities, which is the need of the hour to facilitate the residents.

Faisal Sakhi Butt said that development projects worth billions of rupees had been executed without having any consultation with the residents of the city and other relevant stakeholders. The authority must take the residents of the city on board while executing any development project, he said. The government is committed to promoting the concept of public-private partnership to make the city the hub of economic activities.

He said that the prime minister had taken keen interest in development of the federal capital on modern lines and for this purpose the issues neglected during successive regimes had to be resolved. On the occasion, CDA Chairman Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said the authority was already working on the plan to launch a decent transport facility, providing the best travelling facility to the residents at nominal charges.

Suzuki Swish 125 Launched

suzuki swish
A month after the Suzuki Swish 125 was reveal at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, the Japanese two-wheeler producer has launched the gearless scooter at Rs. 45,431 ex-showroom, Delhi. The Swish 125 carries the same design idiom as the Suzuki Access 125 but looks better and exudes a more premium feel.

Powered by the same 125 cc, air-cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke petrol engine as on the Access, the Swish 125 has a maximum power of 8.7 PS @ 7,000 rpm and 9.8 Nm @ 5,000 Nm of torque – decent enough for the urban two-wheeler commuter. The scooter also features CVT, telescopic front shock-absorber with drum brakes in both wheels. The fuel tank and under-seat storage capacity of 6 litres and 20 litres, respectively, is the same as the Access 125’s. The Swish 125 also sports an attractive instrument panel, an aluminium grab rail for the rear passenger and a better looking muffler cover.

The scooter is targeted at those looking for a handsome vehicle that offers a little more attention-to-detail in terms of design. At Rs 4,000, it’s also priced a notch higher than the Access 125, which will continue to be sold alongside the new model that is being pitched as a slightly more premium option by the manufacturer.

In terms of competition, the Suzuki Swish 125 will lock horns with the Mahindra Rodeo and Duro apart from its own Access. So far, Suzuki Motorcycles have maintained a very conservative approach in terms of its offerings in the Indian two-wheeler commuter market, preferring to take one step at a time. With the Swish 125, Suzuki hopes to attract young urban buyers who want a bit of style and power from their scooters.

A Short History Of The COSTA CONCORDIA

The COSTA CONCORDIA was structured in January, 2004 as a bigger, modified version of the 102,587 gross ton COSTA FORTUNA and COSTA MAGICA which entered service in 2003 and 2004 respectively. The newest vessel would be the name ship of the “Costa Concordia Class” of five (5) nearly identical 114,147 gross ton ships that would take just about three hundred (300) more passengers than their predecessors.

Based on double-occupancy the latest Costa entrant would carry 3,004 passengers and a crew of over 1,000. At full capacity there could be up to 3,780 passengers aboard occupying the 1,502 staterooms. The overall length of the ship is 952 feet (290.2 meters), a beam of 116 feet (35.5 meters) and a draft of over 26 feet (8.2 meters). The newer Costa ships are based on a common platform as vessels in parent company Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet. The same basic design for the COSTA CONCORDIA, originated with the CARNIVAL CONQUEST class of ships beginning in 2002.

The rapid pace of building is well illustrated by the large number of ships delivered by Italy’s Fincantieri shipyards during the decade from 2002 to 2012. For just the two brands, Carnival and Costa, the yard produced 19 cruise ships, 11 of which share similarities of design with the COSTA CONCORDIA. Among their many subsidiary companies, Costa Cruises and their affiliated Aida Cruises brand were the primary beneficiaries of Carnival’s new building largesse. The COSTA CONCORDIA entered salt water for the first time from the Sestri Ponente yard of Fincantieri near Genoa, Italy, on September 2, 2005. The floating out ceremony was somewhat unusual in that it resembled a traditional ship launch more than a mere move to the builder’s wet dock. Carnival Corporation chairman Micky Arison was present for the blessing which was performed by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Archbishop of Genoa. An employee of the shipyard, Graziella Frisone, acted as Godmother. As she sent the ceremonial bottle of champagne against the hull, the bottle did not break. Widely regarded in seagoing lore as an extremely unlucky omen, another shipyard worker successfully smashed the bottle against the hull on the second attempt. On June 30th the largest Italian ship in history was delivered, followed by the official christening ceremony on July 7, 2006 by supermodel Eva Herzigova. Again underscoring the rapid building pace, the next ship of the class, the COSTA SERENA was floated out on August 4th and commenced her own maiden voyage in May, 2007.

Motorcycle among prizes for Jubilee

Harley-Davidson Corporation will contribute a high-end motorcycle to the 2012 Solano Wine & Food Jubilee, to be raffled off as part of the Jubilee's fund-raising efforts, organizers of the event said.

The annual Jubilee is a benefit for NorthBay Hospice and Bereavement.

The donation is part of the motorcycle company's new national program to help nonprofits, according to Ed Forbush, president of Iron Steed Harley-Davidson of Vacaville, and the Solano Wine & Food Jubilee in April is the first nonprofit organization to benefit from the corporation's generosity. Forbush worked with NorthBay Healthcare Foundation staff to prepare the winning grant that is bringing the donated motorcycle to Solano County.

The bike, a 2012 Electra Glide Ultra Limited in Vivid Black -- with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $23,999 -- will be raffled off as part of the Jubilee's $35,000 cash and prize raffle. It will be on display at venues to be determined, as well as at the Jubilee itself.

"We are extremely honored to have been chosen by Harley-Davidson to be their program's first recipient and want to thank Ed Forbush, who brought the opportunity to our attention," noted Brett Johnson, NorthBay Healthcare Foundation president. "We're already planning a number of events -- such as a Poker Run through Suisun Valley on April 21 -- to showcase this top-of-the-line Harley-Davidson motorcycle."

European Car Market Slipped in 2011

European Car Market
The European car market fell by 1.4% to 13.6 million vehicles in 2011, marking the fourth-consecutive annual decline and the outlook for this year looks bleak as tough austerity measures are expected to eat into demand.

“In 2011, most of the significant markets declined,” the European automobile manufacturers association, or ACEA, said Tuesday in a statement.

The French market dwindled by 2.1%, the U.K.’s fell 4.4%, while new-car registrations in Italy contracted by 10.9% and in Spain by 18% year-to-year, reflecting the region’s economic woes, particularly in Southern Europe, ACEA said.

Still, Germany—Europe’s largest car market—posted an 8.8% increase compared to 2010, backed by a more robust economy and better consumer confidence. There was a similar divide between car categories, with makers of luxury cars faring better than mass-market manufacturers. Registrations for BMW AG rose by 7.7% last year to 810,199 cars in Europe, helped by a 19% rise at its Mini brand. German rival Daimler AG’s market share in Europe was flat year-to-year as it eked out a 0.4% rise to 671,480 cars in 2011. Volkswagen, Europe’s largest car maker by sales, posted a 7.8% rise in new-car registrations to 3.17 million vehicles, driven by its luxury Audi brand as well as its VW and Skoda brands.

Bajaj RE60 four-wheeler unveiled

bajaj RE60

Four (4) years after Bajaj Auto showcased its ‘small car’ at the 2008 Auto Expo, the two- and three-wheeler giant has unveiled what it calls the RE60. “It is not a car. It’s a four wheeler,” said Rajiv Bajaj while addressing the media at hotel Taj Palace in New Delhi.

The RE60 will be built at Bajaj Auto’s Aurangabad plant and the launch will take place in a few months from now. The company refused to divulge the price. However, it said that the RE60 will deliver close to 40 kmpl and emit only 60g/km of CO2, making it one of the most fuel-efficient and green vehicles in the market.

The RE60 caters to the commercial passenger segment and is designed to gradually replace the autorickshaw as a mode of transport. And the Bajaj MD has a point, as the RE60, complete with four wheels and doors, is a much safer and convenient mode of transport compared to the three-wheeler autorickshaw.

The four-wheeler will have a 200cc, water-cooled, fuel-injected DTSi engine that will put out roughly 20 PS of power but the light kerb weight of just 400 kgs gives the vehicle a power to weight ratio similar to A-segment cars in India. The engine is mounted at the rear of the four-wheeler and as a result boot space is limited to 44 litres.
