Review : Nissan GT-R 2012

Nissan GT-R 2012
The latest version of the supercar-wheel-drive Nissan GT-R goes on sale in Europe since January 2012. On the 2012 version of the interior has undergone minor changes. It changed the backlight of the instrument panel and center console, while as regards comfort, is now standard with the rear parking camera and were renewed Bose woofer installation. The price for the time being, remains unknown, but no further changes to the equipment is likely lurks around 100,000 €. In this way, the GT-R will continue to be the coupe for more than 500 hp more affordable on the market.

Review : Nissan GT-R 2012
For those looking for extreme sensations, Nissan has given a "Track Pack" (only available for the right-hand drive versions, in Japan, United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa), designed for those who often goes to the track, which eliminates two rear seats to reduce the total weight of the car. In this package there is a more precise tuning of the suspension, a high-performance braking system with ventilated discs, alloy wheels and a spoiler made of carbon fiber to improve air distribution and lighten the slightly ' front axle.

The most interesting change concerns once again the engine with six cylinders arranged at 3.8 V. Not only is it more powerful (549 hp hours), but thanks to greater efficiency of cooling systems, exhaust and intake, the consumption fell to 11.8 liters. Although it may seem insignificant in absolute terms, we must consider that it is almost 70 horsepower more than the initial version. This new engine management system has produced other direct benefits, including improved torque from 612 to 632 Nm, which will be delivered in continuous mode between 3,200 and 5,800 rpm.

Review : BMW M5 (2012)

The new M5 V10 says goodbye to the air and start to mount the same engine as the X5 and X6 M, a 4.4 eight-cylinder that produces 560 hp V-(and 680 Nm) and that for the first time in the history of this model will use two turbo-compressors (in this case double entry) to beat the performance of all its rivals. Among the elements that make possible such services include the exceptional power / weight ratio achieved with the increased presence of aluminum (3.3 pounds per horsepower), the Quick Start Launch Control system that offers the dual-clutch gearbox and a set Drivelogic saving Efficient Dynamics measures (such as start / stop and brake energy recovery) which adds a mode of transmission that favors the use of less fuel consumption.

And no doubt there has been successful. At least now, neither the E63 AMG Mercedes-Benz or a Porsche Panamera Turbo is able to offer more power, better acceleration and improved fuel consumption figure. BMW has literally surpassed all schemes achieving an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and from 0 to 200 km / h in 13.0 seconds, with an approved mixed use which has been reduced drastically from 14, 8 liters of the previous generation to less than 10 liters (9.9 exactly). The maximum speed, which as usual is limited electronically to 250 km / h, can be increased up to 305 km / h with the Drivers package (just like on the X5 and X6 M).

Even the standard equipment, of course, a number of improvements, such as the introduction of modern elements (traffic sign recognition, night vision system, Internet connection, etc..), The adaptive lighting for xenon headlights iDrive to control or command data over a 10.2-inch screen.

The new M5 will allow the driver to adapt to any situation driving the car, and the possibilities are many. You can choose three modes for the automatic gearbox, sequential gearbox for the other two, three levels of suspension stiffness, different types of intervention for the stability control and limited slip differential and a number of alternatives to show the information through the Head-Up the display.

Potential Dangers Found in Automobiles
Potential Dangers Found in Automobiles

For all of the energy, both political and economic, that is spent on the external affects of cars, not enough is spent on the dangerous effects of the chemicals inside of cars and the long-term medical conditions that it can cause in riders. There are so many potential dangers that have been found in automobiles in recent studies that there has actually been political action against the materials that are used inside the plastic and cars, as well as the materials that are used for many other parts of vehicles in general.

Below are some of the more relevant dangers that have been found in automobiles by recent studies, and what you can do to avoid them.

– Compounds in the plastics

If you have ever wondered how they get the plastics inside of vehicles to feel all different kinds of ways – hard when they need it hard, soft when they needed soft – the answer is chemicals that can do a great deal of harm to you if you are around them too much. Many of the materials and plastics in vehicles are also used in PVCs, which have long been shown to be quite detrimental to the long-term health of humans if used improperly.

However, with vehicles, these compounds used in these plastics take on a new level of potential danger. Because of the temperature fluctuation inside cars, these compounds act to become more dangerous when exposed to summer temperatures. They also become quite dangerous if you allow the inside of your car to get dirty, as these compounds will input themselves into the dust particles that you breathe and off of your dashboard and windshield.

Some of the long-term negative effects that prolonged exposure to these compounds in the plastics can cause are mesothelioma, asthma, liver dysfunction and digestive dysfunction. All of these conditions are conditions that cannot be cured, and remain as a permanent lower quality of life for those people unfortunate enough to contract these conditions.

However, you can avoid a great deal of these compounds if you simply keep the inside of your car clean and free of dust particles. These dust particles tend to accumulate on the dashboard and on the inside windshield, so make sure that these two areas are especially clean when you get ready to drive.

Also, another way that you can stay away from these particles is to have someone else clean out your vehicle and do the appropriate services around the brakes, struts and engine parts. However, if you insist on doing these functions yourself, beware of asbestos especially in older vehicles. Exposure to asbestos can also lead to mesothelioma. They are in parts like drum brakes, gaskets, clutches, etc. Make sure that you were a gas mask when you are under the car and when you are lifting the hood of the car in order to access any part of the car that is plastic or that gets extremely hot when the car is in use.

New 3.0 V6 Biturbo for Audi TDI (News)

The letter of introduction of this new engine, already available on models A6 and A7 Sportback is really important: 313 hp, 650 Nm of torque and a power consumption of just 6.4 liters. Apart from the data on consumption, anyone who attempted to guess the structure of an engine with similar characteristics would have thought a V8 or even a ten-cylinder engine. Instead, with the support of the turbocharger and injection system that operates up to 2,000 bar of pressure, Audi managed to pour all this potential on a six-cylinder engine.

Although it sounds strange, even a 3-liter twin-turbo engine can fit into the logic "downsizing." This technique, which undoubtedly marked the first decade of the century, is to supercharge displacements less interesting data to keep power and torque. Audi was the last to introduce a new example in this regard, and has developed a new and undisputed leader in terms of efficiency.

Performance should not add much. A6 5.1 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, just 2 / 10 in less time requiring Avant A6 or A7 Sportback. As for consumption, the data obtained is approval of 5.6 and 6.4 liters of the road on the combined cycle, which is equivalent to CO2 emissions of less than 170 grams per kilometer.

BMW Dynamic Light Spot

BMW has developed a system to recognize pedestrians at night, which directs them automatically to a beam of light to alert the driver and clearly mark its position. This is called Dynamic Light Spot, and is available as optional equipment.

These systems work together with the night vision system, which uses an infrared camera (or thermal cameras), which requires no previous emission of ultraviolet light (and save energy). The camera is placed at the top of the windshield with the point of view up to 24 degrees and has a range exceeding 100 meters.

Headlights have additional lights that respective light beams and directing lights for pedestrians (or animal) that detects recognition system. This makes it stand out from the shadows (and usually at a distance that light to illuminate as much as only the feet).

This additional light will turn on only when pedestrians are too far away (outside the scope of the low beam, which should be between 50 and 80 m), when the car approached, and the lights that normally illuminate pedestrians and additional lights went out.

This system recognizes the positive people at a distance of 97 meters on average, regardless of the weather. If the driver saw the pedestrian before (or other constraints) can react and prevent the occurrence of various violations and scope.

A study by BMW, pedestrians wearing dark clothing at night and driving with dipped lights, recognizable at a glance by the driver when and only 29 meters away. To give us an idea, running at 80 km / h, stopping distance is about 60 to 65 m. With the new security system is three times the distance at which we are aware of pedestrians or animals.

This system seems very attractive. Now we have to see how much it costs and how quickly became popular makes and models in general (and affordable).
