Chevrolet Corvette, Shorter, More Powerful And Less Wind Resistance

A new Corvette is quite an event in the US sports car world, and the C6, as the 2005 model year Corvette is known, is no disappointment. With a slightly larger engine, a shorter body, firmer suspension, and a drag coefficient of only 0.28 very much top class the new car will be worth waiting for. New for Chevrolet is a roadster, with an automatically raising and lowering soft top well, not quite new as there was one about 40 years ago! There's also an option of automatically adjusted damping a true innovation. Droop nose, high tail and low drag Visually, this is instantly recognizable as a Corvette, not least because of that huge rear wrap-around window and the high wide tail. The nose now droops down more, and the lower apron seems to almost sweep the road. There is a wide, shallow air intake at the front, and fashionable teardrop headlamps. Presumably to reduce wind resistance and give adequate trunk space, the tail is higher than it used to be, and from most views the car looks

Bentley Continental GT, Supreme Long Distance Grand Touring Supercar

Image
Whatever some people may say, supercars need to look good and the Bentley Continental GT looks superb. It is a supercar that really causes heads to turn, and no wonder. The lines are so graceful, so well balanced, and hint at the tremendous pace of the car. And it is very, very fast, with a top speed of at least 198 mph or more and a 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds. So when you open the door and ease yourself into the driver's seat, the car has started to win you over, with that elegant interior of hand-stitched leather and wood. These effects don't always work, but here they are absolutely right. Quality tells. Start driving, and apart from a couple of minor things, this supercar wins you over again and again. It's a complex beast, though, not just because of that W-12 engine, designed to be as compact as a 12-cylinder can be. The car has a host of features including four-way adjustable dampers, air suspension with adjustable ride height in case you have to negotiate an awkwa

Hotter Version Of Audi A3 Gets VW Group’s Two Liter Engine

Hot on the heels of the new TT sports car comes the Audi S3. Oddly, the S3 gets a more powerful version of the turbocharged direct injection engine from the VW Group, so the Audi S3 steals the thunder. The new engine has a larger turbocharger and inter cooler, with a number of other mods, to push power up from the 200 bhp of the TT to 265 bhp at 6,000 rpm. The car gets the styling treatment you’d expect, with dark interior relieved slightly by aluminum trim and a fashionably sporty steering wheel with a flat part of the rim at the bottom. Externally, the car is unmistakably Audi A3 but with a few minor mods. Of course, there is a revised front end, which gets dummy lower side grilles a la VW Golf GTI, the now-familiar deep one-piece main grille, now with an extra little grille below. All pretty predictable stuff, as of course was the styling of the original A3. Uprated turbo gives plenty of all-round power But don’t be fooled. With this uprated turbo, the Audi S3 sports hatch can get t
