News: Jaguar XKRS convertible

New convertible from jaguar with 5.0 liter supercharged engine generate about 550hp and 6800 torque. The car has 6 speed automatic transmission. With a total weight of 2185 kg the car can go from 0-60km/h in 4.5sec.

Here is some special feature from jaguar website

Jaguar Drive Selector
The XKR-S’ six-speed automatic transmission is controlled by the JaguarDrive Selector™, a beautifully designed cylindrical control that rises into the driver’s hand once the ‘Start’ button is pressed. The driver simply turns the selector to choose Drive or Sport automatic gearshift mode. For maximum driver involvement, gear changes can also be controlled manually with the one-touch paddles behind the steering wheel.

Jaguar Drive Control
JaguarDrive Control™ provides a choice of modes to suit road conditions and driving style. Winter mode offers a dampened accelerator response for more progressive control in slippery conditions, with bespoke shift settings that delay and soften gear changes. Dynamic mode interacts with the management electronics to give a more responsive accelerator reaction, quicker gearshifts and a more sporting drive.

Active Front Lightning
The Active Front Lighting system features dynamic pivoting headlamps and cornering lamps that react to the car’s speed and steering input. The system can deflect the headlight beams by up to 15°, to cast light deeper into corners.

Toch Screen and screen navigator
The 7" Touch-screen controls most major functions and keeps the number of conventional switches to a minimum. A masterpiece of clarity and intuitive functionality, it is used to operate the in-car audio system, Bluetooth® telephone system, satellite navigation and climate control.

Portable audio interface
The Portable Audio Interface provides full-function control of an iPod® or other MP3 player via the Touch-screen. USB mass-storage devices can also be accessed through the Touch-screen and other players can be connected to the car through the standard-fit 3.5mm stereo auxiliary input port.

Bowers and Wilkins sound system 
The XKR-S is fitted with a Bowers & Wilkins 525W sound system featuring Dolby® Pro-Logic II Surround Sound for extraordinary sound quality throughout the cabin. Designed and tuned for the XK range by Bowers & Wilkins, it offers exceptionally clear reproduction, enhanced by Kevlar® cones in the larger speakers and aluminium domes on the tweeters.

Reverse park camera
The Reverse Park Camera is discreetly hidden in the XKR-S’ boot lid finisher. It sends pictures from behind the car to the 7" Touch-screen, with parking guidance for the driver.

News: 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder

Automobili Lamborghini is expanding the most successful model line ever built under the sign of the bull with a very special car – the new Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder combines the open spyder body style with purist rear Wheel Drive. This version brings together that stunning level of open-air driving fun that can come only from a super sports car with a folding roof and an unbelievably agile and spontaneous handling.

"With the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder, we are expanding the Lamborghini lineup with a purist model that adds yet another dimension of driving fun. This will appeal in particular to a very special group of customers that enjoy a spirited driving style and also like to experience the sheer pleasure of open-air driving," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "This special model with rear-wheel drive is a logical expansion of our lineup of spyder models with all-wheel drive."

The most important technical characteristics of the Lamborghini LP 550-2 Spyder are already recognizable from the model designation – LP stands for Longitudinale/Posteriore, for the mid-engine built longitudinally in front of the rear axle. 550 refers to the power output in hp, and the 2 stands for the drive to the rear wheels. At Lamborghini, the word spyder means the ultimate synthesis of a fascinating, powerfully expressive super sports car design, the ultimate open-air thrill and sheer pleasure for all the senses.

A driving experience of the highest precision

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder with rear-wheel drive is the perfect fit for the kind of sports car driver that enjoys a particularly hands-on and spirited style of driving. The setup is laid out to ensure that the rear end remains reliable and stable at all times, while the front axle steers with the highest level of precision and limits movement to an absolute minimum.

Thanks to the supremely powerful V10 engine, controlled oversteer is not a problem, although always and only to the extent prescribed by the driver. Its easy-to-control road manners and the ESP assistant system developed for these vehicles make the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder an outstandingly safe sports car to drive.

Further developed chassis, drive system and engine

In order to shape this unique character of driving fun and safety, the engineers in Sant'Agata Bolognese carried out extensive modifications to the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder, developing it specifically for these new characteristics. Not only was drive concentrated on the rear axle, the vehicle was also completely retuned in all its dynamic details. This Includes a specific dampers setting. The aerodynamics were also adapted to account for the change in the distribution of forces.

The vehicle show out its goods with a rear axle with the 45-percent locking differential, and the adoption of the e-gear transmission. All completed with a fine adaptation of the ESP stability control system. While the standard program puts a priority on stability, the CORSA program allows larger drift angles and delivers a highly intensive appreciation of the full dynamics of the LP 550-2. All the excellent characteristics of the Gallardo chassis are fully retained – its pleasing bodyroll comfort, as well as its excellent directional stability at high speed.

Outstanding performance is guaranteed

The heart of the Gallardo – the 5.2-liter ten-cylinder – was also retuned and its characteristics optimized for rear-wheel drive, delivering that perfect and breathtaking synthesis of high-revving pleasure, pulling power, exuberant temperament and powerful melody in all keys. In the LP 550-2 Spyder, the compact and lightweight power unit delivers 405 kW (550 hp). Thanks to systematic Lamborghini lightweight design and an extremely low dry weight of just 1,520 kilograms, phenomenal performance is guaranteed – the LP 550-2 catapults itself from zero to 100 km/h in just 4,2 seconds. And its top speed of 319km/h guarantees it a place among the ultimate super sports cars. The soft-top of the Gallardo Spyder is designed for unlimited top-speed enjoyment both open and closed.

Careful individualization of the lineup

With the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder, Lamborghini is expanding its most successful model line of all time (to-date a total of nearly 11.800 have been built in Sant'Agata Bolognese) with a stunning variant that continues the successful individualization of its lineup. This includes the LP 560-4 Spyder, as well as the ultra-high-performance Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, which boasts an even further weight reduction through carbon-fiber lightweight engineering. The latest version among the coupe variants is the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale – the road-going version of the race car featured in the world's fastest single-brand racing series.

News: GT-R gets even more power and other refinements for 2013

While it is not the hardcore Track Pack we were hoping to get (that goes to Japan to replace the SpecV), Nissan has released some changes to the GT-R for the 2013 model year. Like the upgrades made for 2012, the 2013 model will benefit from a number of engine and suspension refinements to increase its already stellar performance.

Some reworked intake and exhaust tubing results in 15 more hp than the 2012 model for a total of 545. Torque is also up to 463 lb-ft, also an increase of 15. In addition, the suspension has been retuned. Other enhancements include the addition of a new blue lighting treatment inside the tachometer and a rear-view camera as standard. A carbon spoiler has also been added to the Nissan GT-R Black Edition model.

The 2013 Nissan GT-R is offered in Premium and Black Edition submodels and is scheduled to go on sale in January 2012.

Malaysia VIP: Sultan Johor Bentley Mulsanne paint with Royal Color

Sultan Johor Bentley Mulsanne with Johor Colour.

At the heart of every great car lies a great engine. So when creating the all-new Bentley Mulsanne, our engineers were presented with a unique opportunity: To design an all-new powertrain that would deliver the effortless performance expected of a grand Bentley, whilst retaining huge amounts of power in reserve.

While other powertrain configurations were considered by the Mulsanne engineers early on in the project, it became clear that the massive torque trademark of every grand Bentley could be best achieved with a V8 engine. And though the base configuration is similar to the engineering design classic first built in Crewe fifty years ago, the Mulsanne V8 has been completely redesigned to integrate the latest technologies.

The result? A remarkable 6 ¾-litre, 90-degree V8 engine, an all-new 505bhp engineering marvel that generates 1020Nm of torque. All the major building blocks of the engine are new and have been designed to optimise performance. They also contribute towards meeting three key objectives: maximising torque, refinement and efficiency. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the introduction of two new electro-mechanical control systems: cam phasing and variable displacement. The pioneering use of these two technologies in combination allows the Mulsanne’s engine management system not only to actively adjust the V8’s breathing, but to effectively throttle back four of the cylinders entirely, independently of the others, when not required.

This ability to finely control the engine’s fuel-air intake and timing allows for the maximum availability of huge amounts of torque. At the same time, it ensures that the engine operates in as economical and refined a manner as possible when more relaxed motoring is the order of the day. Variable displacement also has a significant effect on the new engine’s fuel consumption thanks to its ability to idle four of the eight cylinders when cruising. This, in conjunction with the new eight-speed automatic transmission with quick-shift, reduces CO2 emissions and offers a potential 15 per cent saving in fuel compared to the previous V8.
