BMW, 501

Because of the lost of Eisenach factory, it was very hard for BMW to build a new start after the War. Only in 1951, BMW presented a new model on Auto Show in Frankfurt: 501. Also named “baroque angel”, because of its body bent lines, this offered many new and interesting things. Its docile frame was much appreciated. Even the transmission offered something new: it wasn’t directly attached to the engine and it was connected on the propeller with an articulated axle. This arrangement was made for the advantage of a refined engine suspension. The 6 litres engine, a modified version of 326, developed 65 hp and it was great, excelled in refinement with 501.
Three years lather, the “baroque angel” created a sensation: when BMW 502 debuted on Auto Show in Geneva, the journalists received very enthusiastic the first engine made by easy alloy on a series car and the first engine with 8 cylinders after the first War.

Thrust SSC – 766 mph

Thrust SSC
The title of “fastest car in the world” hasn’t resisted too long. And, of course we can talk and explain in many articles all about this. This one is about the series car that can be register and can circulate on public roads, but it’s no longer in production, which is powered by a internal combustion engine, a rocket model or one borrowed from a supersonic jet. Since 1997, the title for the fastest vehicle belongs to Thrust SSC, which surpassed the sound barrier: 1,241.727 km/h. The supersonic speed was hit thanks to a couple of 25,000 lb turbojet engines, produced by Rolls Royce, which develop 100,000 hp. Wow! That sure is amazing! Don’t you think? It is kind of unbelievable! Thrust SSC weighs 10 tones and has recorded the maximum speed in the Black Rock desert Nevada, USA on October 15, 1997. If we talk about an internal combustion engine, things are changing every year or maybe sooner. You all know that Brabus TKR is a super car powered with impressive performances, which will be a great rival for Bugatti Veyron. Those 1,005 hp permit it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 1.67 seconds and reach a 434 km/h top speed. Fascinating world… the automobile world! 🙂

BMW M5 + 1

BMW M5 6 speeds
Without any extra pay, starting with next year you can command your BMW M5 with manual transmission gear box, with 6 speeds. This super German car was available, since its beginning, only with a sequential transmission (called SMG) with 7 stages, this being a complain reason for the fans. The official explanation was not good: because of its power generated by the huge V10 (5 litres), speeds diagram was very complicated, and it couldn’t be put on a manual variant. It is funny to think that the Americans made the biggest noise! 🙂 Eventually, the Germans renounced at one step and created a gear box which can satisfy any request! With richer equipment, the care is available over the Ocean, starting at €64,892.

Brabus- a 225 mph Police car

Brabus Rocket
If you stay in a country and you have many fast roads, you surely need some good patrol cars. And, if the Italians have a 640bhp Lamborghini Murcielargo LP640, is the time now for the Germans to show what a real police car means. So, they offered a Brabus, based on the Mercedes Benz CLS. Brabus Rocket set the record for the world’s fastest production saloon, by hitting 227.2 mph at the Nardo high speed bowl in Italy.
brabus-rocket_4.jpg brabus-rocket_5.jpg brabus-rocket_6.jpg
The car is used as a PR exercise, but the Rocket is very real and can be yours for £235,178. For this price you will get a great modified Mercedes V12, which starts life as a mere 5.5 litres in the S-Class. Brabus has also a couple of turbochargers and a performance exhaust system to ramp up the power to a 730 bhp. The peak torque is of 973 lb/ft, 5 speed automatic gearbox, accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds, 12 piston callipers grabbing on to enormous ceramic brakes and 19 inch alloy wheels. Great car to patrol with! I want to be a police officer! 🙂

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster

New Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster was presented in Los Angeles, this year. There is less than a year since the V8 Vantage was presented in North America, and Aston Martin was taken the top of the sexy sport cars. This convertible is adding a second line-up of exclusive automobiles. You only must take a look of this beautiful coupe, and for sure you will recognize it as an Aston Martin.
aston-martin-v8-vantage-roadster.jpg
V8 Vantage Roadster is perfectly proportioned; the top is hidden below a rear tonneau cover automatically; constructed from lightweight alloys, advanced composites and magnesium. I observe Vantage Roadster as a great sport car that provides a great driving experience, and if you drive it, you will have a journey to remember. V8 Vantage is powered with 4.3 litres, V8 engine, producing 380 hp, having a Graziano 6 speed gear box, with manual transmission (Sportshift transmission- an automatic manual system that allows very quick shifting via steering column mounted paddles).

Aston Martin accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds and has a top speed of 175 mph. Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is expected to be presented in showrooms in the 2nd quarter of 2007. I’m eager to see this beauty!
