Auto Show Detroit Autorama 2015

Prices Pictures Car Reviews : - Auto Show Detroit Autorama 2015 - The Detroit show this year was more global than ever before. He was also very relevant. The new metal production was usually the guy who could relate to without much explanation , and concepts were attractive , but not too fancy .

Toyota - Lexus had a great show. Finally, there is clear evidence of what the company president Akio Toyoda, and its engineers have promise for a while.



You want to make cars that are more of the device: Rent really crave the people .

The Toyota FT-1 looks good, and especially shows how the company is developing a voice distinctive design for all cars.

But if there is a production of spin-off (big if) is a way away. Lexus, shown for the CR- F, is a few years ago the parent company in getting its distinctive design .

And the RC -F should take a bit of an event and see - brake calipers behind the headlights come naturally aspirated engine.Not so happy for VW Audi show.

VW has meant growth in the…

First Ride: The Chevy Camaro Z/28 Part 2

Image
OK, this is the entire mechanism. Anything else?
Aerodynamics has toyed with. , Thanks to the openings square jaw front splitter, hood and valve cover, a rear spoiler are fitted with an extra lip and a few other small things that not only Z/28 Free will all lift, which generates an output 150 pounds, also . Chevy bowtie logo in front of the radiator grille is also emptied to allow air movement.
And the suspension has a fundamental right to have to make all the above changes for the better review. Highlights: front springs are 85 percent stiffer than a Camaro SS rears, 65 percent are heavier. Bushings rear suspension to give 25 percent vs. 50 percent stiffer and less flexible more steering feel.
All work is done, the team of "light" the Z/28, the rear seat is not a framework to have to save weight, the rear glass is 0.3 mm thinner than the standard, and the air conditioning is 12.9 kg is only included as an option.
What's it like to drive?
Along the way, it's …

First Ride: The Chevy Camaro Z/28 Part 1

What's this? Looks like a Chevy Camaro ...
It is. But look a little closer. This is not a regular Camaro. This is version Z/28 an appearance in the line-up of the fifth generation car for the first time. The name, a bit like the code used Z06 Corvettes jumped up, has its roots in the internal code of the production of GM. The Super Sport package Camaro (SS) was known as the Z/27. So, as the new car was even more extreme, became known as the Z/28. And the name is fixed since.
Where does it fit in the Camaro range?
Not the most powerful model - the compressed 580bhp, has ZL1 300 pounds heavier this honor. However, focusing on the track anyway. When the ZL1 is designed to blow away the competition on the road, the Z/28 all devices has not been developed to send a best lap time deprived. When Chevy says: "We have given everything not make it go faster, or was required by law.
So what is left?
The LS7 V8 engine is given a breath of cold air from the previous generation of the …

First Drive: Chevy SS

Image
Chevy SS - This looks strangely familiar .As it should be. Is Australian fighter built sedan, which we know in the UK as the Vauxhall VXR8 , and the people Down Under know and love, as Holden VF Commodore . Now it is the U.S. export as a spiritual successor to that budget scorching four-door Chevy Impala SS .Wait, is not the Commodore as the Pontiac G8 in the U.S. known ?It was. But if Pontiac has Schnitzel GM brand family after the restructuring in 2010 , the G8 went with him.So it is exactly the same as the Vauxhall VXR8 , only Chevy SS badge on it?No, this is not the compressor , active damping and a choice of manual transmission. And many other details that need to visit two websites to check one by one .Can we call it a four-door Camaro ?Yes and no. Yes on the same Zeta - mounted Australian engineering platform as the Camaro and gear are no different. But there are some differences , such as wheelbase and some tools that make them significantly different.What is offered than o…

First Ride: The C7 Corvette Convertible

I've been waiting to hear more about the new Stingray Convertible . What 's the story?Developed at the same time as the hard top, you would think that the convertible was unnecessary , since all ' Vettes now Targa - style removable roof panel . So you can get your fresh air and have a solid roof over your head when finished. But then topped version of software is running and makes all the sense in the world. There are several reasons for this.
What?This naturally as a wide , unobstructed view of the outside. You can clearly hear the harsh exhaust note . Airflow with the roof down and windows up is actually better , less fuss , as deleted in the hardtop with the roof section . And with the roof down , the Roadster version looks much better than the hardtop .What about the lack of trunk space - but there must be some problems ?While there is an enormous amount of space back there , but the good news is that there is a constant size . The roof mechanism is walled off the b…
