LaFerrari: The Ferrari Hybrid Speedster

Ferrari-LaFerrari_2014_2

More than a thousand people have expressed a desire to purchase LaFerrari a few days after it has been released, so it is not surprising news that the mighty Italian super car has already sold out right way. This ultimate speeder is equipped with a 6.3-liter V12 engine that develops 800 hp and 700 Nm of torque,  the unit is also paired with an electric motor which gives an additional 163 hp and 270 Nm of torque. LaFerrari with its 963 hp can accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds and achieve a top speed in excess of 350 km / h. The car has been produced in only 499 copies, and only 120 pieces intended for the U.S. market. LaFerrari has never been a car that you will easily be able to obtain, even for those who are willing to easily reach into the pocket and pull out $ 1.4 million, which is a high cost to pay for the pride of the Italian automotive industry.

 

aFerrari is the fastest and most powerful production car in the company’s history. With a price that exceeds one million euros in Europe, it is also the most expensive model of this manufacturer from Maranello and for the end, Ferrari has announced that in the 2013. The total production of all models of the company will be 7,000 cars, which is 300 fewer than in the 2012th year. Ferrari is showing us that each new model which comes from their factory is ultimate sport car. Every new model of their special releases is aerodynamic wonder. It is important to say that some people think that there are some rules in order to have one, beside money of course, some people say you should to be an owner of at least 5 Ferrari vehicles in your garage. It’s important to have experience with the Ferrari before you make the purchase. For further details please visit us at Exotic Car Rentals in Clearwater, FL

A History of Audi

 

Audi TTS Roadster Sideview

Audi is a name that has been around for more than 100 years in the motor industry and comes from the Latin for ‘hear.’ The name came about from the founder August Horch who after several failed attempts at trying to start a car manufacturing business he finally succeeded with the luxury brand Audi.

Audi began production in 1910 and the first cars to be produced were huge inline-four engine models starting with a 2612cc. Over the next 14 years, the team at Audi produced larger cc engine cars including a 5720cc and culminating in their first ever six-cylinder model with a 4655cc mount. August Horch had left the company, to take up a post with the Ministry of Transport in Germany, before this milestone had been reached. Audi went on to become the first ever German production car maker in 1921. Their car, the Audi Type K, was to become very popular in Germany during the 1920s as it was a left-hand drive car that enabled a better seeing position for overtaking maneuvers.

A History of Audi

Towards the end of the 1920s, Audi stepped up a gear and launched itself into the luxury car market. The majority shareholder, Jørgen Rasmussen, acquired the equipment for Audi to start building eight-cylinder engines at the Audi plant. Further improvements would come when Audi merged with Wanderer, DKW and Horch to form Auto Union, now known as Audi, where they launched the first front-wheel-drive six cylinder cars in Europe. To represent the four coming together a new logo was designed and it is the same four-ring interlinked chain famously seen on Audi cars today.

After WWII, the plants were stripped down to nothing as they were used for military engineering against the allied forces. Production would not commence again until 1949 and it was back to the small two-stroke vehicles and even a 125cc motorbike. Daimler-Benz made the largest investment in the company in 1958 when they took an 87% holding and the following year took an impressive 100%. The making of two-stroke engine cars did not suit the growing boom of the 1960s and by 1964 Volkswagen had become a 50% share holder increasing this to 100% just two years later.

Volkswagen decided to use the Audi name on these vehicles from this point onwards and upgraded many of the older models to four-stroke and given a gentle facelift. Audi was launched in the US in 1970 and slowly spread across the world with a great reputation for reliability and good all-round car.

The Quattro was shown to the world in 1980 and fast became the car of choice for discerning man of style. The Quattro brand helped to establish Audi again back in the luxury sports car market and keep them where they are today. The cars being produced from Audi in the present are examples of pure fun wrapped in style and luxury. From the humble A1 Supermini to cars like the formidable TT that has graced our eyes to the supercars like the Audi R8 roadcar or Audi RS6, an estate car that firmly believes it can keep up with F1 racing cars.  For further details please visit us at Exotic Car Rental Miami

A Convertible That Drives Like a Coupe

 

m0uwiaivxfxb1nqfaxfi

Do you like small tight cars that grip the pavement like the wheels are glued to it, even while driving at over 100 miles per hour? If so, the 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider is the car for you. This car is designed specifically for people who enjoy open road driving at fast speeds with the top down.

And that last part is the most important thing about the 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider. Unlike most convertibles, the 488 Spider loses almost no speed, acceleration, or handling compared to its hard top brethren. It still has a sprint speed of 3 seconds, it still offers precision steering, and it still has some of the best brakes you can find on a high performance vehicles. Any true car lover will absolutely love the features built into this car:

  • 3.9L Twin Turbocharged V8 Engine
  • 661 Horsepower
  • Automatic Convertible Top that Opens at Speeds Up to 28 MPH
  • 7 Speed Twin Clutch Automatic Transmission
  • Mid Engine Layout

This Ferrari is a rare vehicle indeed. Besides holding its own against hard top competitors, it is a rare vehicle where you actually want to listen to the hum of the engine. The powerful engine emits a pleasant sound that can almost be compared to a lullaby, though you should obviously be careful not to fall asleep while tearing over open highways or around tight mountain curves.

Performance isn’t the only place where this vehicle stands out. It also an eye-pleasing beauty that stands out in a crowd. The flowing design is actually a bit understated around the wheel wells, giving the impression that the car is more like a jackrabbit than a jaguar. The design aesthetic is further complemented by inverted lines on the hood that giver a sharp, high tech look.

Finally, the interior completes the picture painted by the exterior and the specifications. Black leather racing bucket seats mold precisely to driver and passenger to ensure that everyone enjoys a smooth ride, even while tearing around hard turns or driving at extra legal speeds. Nearly all standard dashboard controls are found on or near the steering wheel, including a GPS display that is visible through the steering wheel.

Clearly designed with racing in mind, the 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider is the future of high speed, top down driving. Check out  Exotic Car Rental Miami

BMW i8 – The New Standard in Economy and Power

Green is definitely the new gold standard in the automotive world. As companies like Tesla and Ford continue to make more environmentally friendly and fuel efficient vehicles and engines, the rest of the industry is taking note and racing to keep up. This race for the best green technology isn’t better showcased than in the annual International Engine of the Year Awards, awarded by Engine Technology International.

Green technology is so well respected that the winner of the coveted International Engine of the Year award for the last four years has been an engine designed specifically to be ecologically friendly. For the past three years, the meant the Ford EcoBoost engine. But, this year even more ripples were sent through the industry when the winner of the award was the BMW i8 Powertrain.

This may not seem like such a big deal, except for one very important fact. The BMW i8 Powertrain is a hybrid engine. A hybrid engine is a rather unlikely winner because along with fuel economy and low emissions, performance is an important part of the judging criteria. And that is what makes the BMW i8 Powertrain truly impressive. It didn’t just do adequate in performance. It displayed amazing performance, a trait rarely seen in a hybrid engine.

As a brand new engine introduced just this year, the BMW i8 Powertrain makes a statement. It unquestionably raises the bar by which all engines, especially hybrids, will be judged in the future. It isn’t the most ecologically friendly (Tesla won that award with an electric engine), nor does it offer the best performance (unsurprisingly Ferrari won that award), but the way it combines green technology with performance technology is nothing short of unparalleled. This award is certain to raise the stock of BMW, a company that already has impressive credentials and respect in the automotive community. With the BMW i8 Powertrain setting the standard this year, next year’s awards are certain to be exciting.

Mercedes-Benz-GLC_2


2016 Mercedes Benz GLC

Mercedes Benz markets the 2016 Mercedes Benz GLC as a compact crossover. If the 2016 Mercedes Benz GLC is considered a crossover, then a Mercedes Benz SUV must be the size of a tractor trailer. This new Mercedes Benz is a big car, way bigger than the average crossover. Most other companies would market it as a full SUV without the slightest embarrassment. It is a statement about how Mercedes Benz builds its vehicles that this car is being marketed the way it is.

The question, then, is what does this incredibly large crossover have to offer for car buyers? For starters, it offers four wheel drive, a rather handy benefit for any vehicle. It is also quite light, probably the biggest argument for calling it a crossover instead of a SUV. Between those two features, you have a crossover that handles almost as well as your average sedan. Anyone who has ever driven a SUV knows how useful that is, especially since good handling also equates to increased safety for the large number of friends and family riding inside of your 2016 Mercedes Benz GLC.

  • 241 Horsepower 4 Cylinder Engine
  • Four Wheel Drive
  • Distronic Plus With Steering Assist
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assistance
  • Collision Prevention Frontal Warning System

Family Safe Vehicle

Mercedes-Benz-GLC_1

Looking at those features, you will immediately notice that safety is a primary concern of the engineers that built the 2016 Mercedes Benz GLC. For a car designed to shepherd large numbers of people, usually families, this is incredibly important. And unlike many cars designed to be incredibly safe, the GLC is also incredibly stylish. It is large, but not domineering, with subtle curves that make it look a bit like a gentle giant of a car. The interior is equally soothing to the eyes, mixing wooden trims with leather upholstery to create a suave look. It is nearly the perfect family car because it is utilitarian and safety oriented while also being attractive enough that nobody will object to riding inside it.

Lamborghini-Urus 2


2018 Lamborghini SUV

Lamborghini recently made a huge announcement providing information about a vehicle it will be producing in the future. Surprisingly, though, this announcement isn’t about a vehicle that is due to be released in 2015, 2016, or even 2017. No, Lamborghini’s newest announcement is about a vehicle that is due to be released in 2018. If you are doing the math, that is sort of like announcing what college you are going to in your freshman year of high school. Despite the long delay to production, this is an announcement worth paying attention to.

According to the official word, starting in 2018, Lamborghini will be producing a SUV called the Lamborghini Urus. While Lamborghini has built a concept car and showed it off, you shouldn’t expect any ratings or reviews for the car for quite some time. Instead, the only real information available is what Lamborghini has announced officially and what can be determined from a visual inspection of the Lamborghini Urus concept car. The latter is possibly the most interesting part of the information available, because the Lamborghini Urus concept car looks nothing like any other SUV on the road today. You can visit places like Exotic Car Rentals in Boca Raton, FL for more information

Features

If it is possible, the Lamborghini Urus may be the car that pulls it off. The Urus concept car may be the most aerodynamic SUV ever produced. If it were just a few inches shorter in terms of both height and length, the vehicle would almost certainly be considered a sedan. And given the muscular curves of the body which look like they are borrowed from a Camaro, if it were about a foot shorter in height, it could easily pass for a modern sports car. It isn’t surprising that a vehicle made by Lamborghini has beautiful lines and curves, but it definitely makes for an unusual looking SUV.

The real question is whether it will actually provide the utility that is expected in a SUV. Looking inside the concept car doesn’t give any answers. The current interior is entirely placeholder parts, with no sense of actual final design. On first glance it simply looks too compact to provide the kind of comfort and storage space that would be expected in a SUV, but Lamborghini has a reputation for amazing engineering, so it is way too dismiss this vehicle.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4

The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 is pretty much the dream car of anyone who has ever whistled at the sleek frame of a sports car or race car. The body design literally looks like it is made specifically to grace posters or be driven by supermodels in movies. A distinctive tail wing highlights the light futuristic body that is as much designed for visual appeal as it is designed for aerodynamics. The minimal road clearance makes the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 almost look like it is sliding over the ground. It is a truly impressive style intended to cause breath to quicken and hearts to skip a beat.

The obvious question is whether the Aventador actually has performance to match its looks. Car enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that it most certainly does. This is a vehicle that can reach 60 miles per hour in under three seconds and sports a top speed of 217 miles per hour. That is fast by any standard. In fact, the only real competition that the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 has in the retail market is from other Lamborghinis. That is a good position for a car with these type of specifications to be in. You can visit places like Exotic Car Rental Miami for more information

A Car That Owns the Road

It should be no news to anyone that the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 is designed primarily with performance in mind. Surprisingly, the interior is actually designed with a bit of an eye towards comfort, but it certainly isn’t a car that you should expect to take on long country drives. Racing seats are designed to improve your performance on the track, not offer a comfortable saddle for hours of carefree driving. But assuming you don’t expect the car to be something that it isn’t, the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 is a car that will truly own the road, whether that road be an open highway or a closed track.

This exotic car packs more than 600 horse-power, with construction and body panels consisting of carbon-fiber. The light weight material also use active aerodynamics. The introduction of the Ford GT 2017 has set a new bench mark, a bench mark that many new cars will struggle to meet.

The Ford GT 2017 features bolted front аnd rear subframes made frоm light-weight yet robust aluminum. The car’s rear wing is adjustable, making for aerodynamic capability. The adjustable wing helps to keeр car’s mid-engine planted with a relatively low center of gravity during high speed performances. Of course, the suspension in this car offers superior damping, with a ride height that is adjustable.

The power output is different than that of previous GT models, with the Ford GT 2017 using Ford’s next-gen twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. This engine propels the car at more than 600 horsepower. The engine’s build has incredible torque, backed by GT’s EcoBoost. This car is pure power – there is no complicated, hybrid technology powering this supercar. Pure horsepower from a powerful gas engine that feeds into the rear wheels is what powers this machine.

The Ford GT 2017 reviews has noted that this supercar has one of the best power to weight ratio, making it a highly responsive vehicle. Instead of spearheading vehicles in its class, its power to weight ratio is one of its best in the market, period. News and review sites has noted the car’s wheel – they actually seem to be standard, normal aluminum wheels, which is contrasted by its beautiful body. Ford is considering including more light weight, carbon wheels. You can visit places like Exotic Car Rentals in Naples, FL for more information

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST

A good SUV is almost by definition a family friendly car. Extra seating capacity and extra storage space basically defines the primary needs of a family vehicle and a car isn’t really a SUV if it doesn’t have both of those features. Despite the fact that the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST is actually a little tighter on space than the average SUV, it more than makes up with that in a number of features designed specifically to protect the passengers.

This new Range Rover has an improved suspension that reduces body roll while improving the turning ability of the vehicle. Trading off a little cabin space for a less ungainly driving experience is a great deal, especially for a vehicle that will be regularly transporting your entire family. Additionally, the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST has a feature that automatically contacts emergency services if air bags are deployed during an accident. This is one of the best safety features that exists that takes advantage of modern advances in automotive technology.

Possibly the most impressive feature of the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HST is the one that has nothing to do with actually driving it. This vehicle can be linked to your smart phone using the InControl application. This means that you can review the status of your vehicle at any time, even when you aren’t actually in the car. It also allows you to make changes to the state of vehicle. Unsurprisingly, you can use it to lock or unlock the vehicle, but that isn’t the only trick available. You can also turn on the engine in order to set the interior of the temperature before you get into the car. This is great for really hot or cold days when you want to escape the weather by getting into your vehicle, rather than having to bear it for another 5 to 10 minutes while the AC or heat turns on.

2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder

The 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder is about to be released and it is pretty much a pure upgrade of the previous model in just about every way. It is only “pretty much” better in every way, as opposed to “definitely” better because the rear of the car is actually a little bit off-putting. An oddly shaped tail and a strangley contoured rear engine compartment cover make the rear of the 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder look ever so slightly like the rear end of a tadpole. But since you are more likely to be admiring the car from the front or side, from those angles it still looks like a classic, quirky little roadster.

The other thing you should know about this Boxster is that Porsche bent over backwards to make it lighter. The end result of that is a car that doesn’t have a built-in radio, built-in air conditioning, or built-in GPS. Since it does have a sound system, you shouldn’t need a radio, unless you enjoy listening to sports while you drive, and this is a car literally designed for top down driving, which means the AC isn’t a big deal either. But if you purchase this vehicle, you will almost certainly want to opt for navigation in order to get the best driving experience possible.

A Car for Cruising

Porsche-Boxster_Spyder_1

If you’ve ever read a review of a Boxster before, the information you are seeing here should look very familiar. It is still a quick little roadster that is designed for cruising on long windy highways on beautiful summer days. In this way, there is basically no difference between the new Boxster and the older model. The differences are primarily technical in nature and pretty close to invisible until the end of the day when you realize that you have driven a little bit farther or a little bit faster or used a little bit less gas. It is small changes mostly, but that is because Porsche was starting with a car that was already a masterpiece.
