Koenigsegg and Qoros to reveal Super EV concept at Shanghai

Chinese carmaker Qoros has joined forced with Koenigsegg to develop a new four-door Super EV concept which will make a debut at the Shanghai motor show later this month. The concept’s also been dubbed 9 Qlectriq. However, its official name will only be announced at the event.buyreplicawatches.co.uk

According to a report by CarNewsChina, the EV concept has a 0-100kph sprint time of 3sec, and a range of 500km. Neither Koenigsegg nor Qoros has clarified the capacity of the battery pack or the power output.

A carbon-fibre monocoque makes up the car’s architecture, with four doors and four seats. The murky teaser images which have been released show a rakish but chunky coupé silhouette, with short overhangs and a similar layer surfacing appearance to the BMW i8.

Qoros showed an electric concept, as well as a cam-less-engined concept at the Guangzhou motor show late last year. But the 500km range of the Super EV dwarf’s that of the Qlectriq concept from the show.

Koenigsegg has previously stated on social media that it plans to look further into electric vehicles, although it’s not yet known if this latest concept is penned for production, or is an exploratory car.

New sedan to join VW’s electric ID line-up

Volkswagen is expected to unveil a new ID electric sedan concept at the Frankfurt motor show in September. The sedan will join an ID SUV, set to be unveiled at the Shanghai show next month, alongside the already revealed ID Buzz MPV and ID hatchback.  Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen’s design chief, has promised a “surprise” for the sedan. The ID models preview Volkswagen’s EV ambitions, with the brand aiming to sell one million electric cars annually by 2025. The electric concepts represent ‘families’ of models, each of which will have different identities and body styles but a common theme, according to Bischoff, including what he calls “a no-grille” philosophy.  “Volkswagen was born with no grille,” he said. “With ID, we’re looking into the future but have our original identity with a closed front end.”  Bischoff added that each ID model will feature a lower air intake for battery cooling when charging, and each will  watches be identified by its headlights and an illuminated VW badge. MPV models will have a “friendly, positive” demeanour,  http://www.replicasrusdirect.com/ as previewed by the ID Buzz concept, while the upcoming SUV will be “non-aggressive but self-confident”.

Lamborghini Huracán Performante launched in India at Rs 3.97 crore

Nürburgring record-smashing supercar is 40kg lighter and more powerful than standard Huracán.

A little over a month after making its debut at the 2017 Geneva motor show, the Lamborghini Huracán Perfomante has been launched in India. The Perfomante is best known for smashing the Nürburgring production car lap record, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder’s time by 5s. Driven by Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli, the Performante recorded a lap time of 6min 52.01s. The Lamborghini Huracán Perfomante costs Rs 3.97 crore (ex-showroom).

The Performante enjoys the distinction of being the most powerful Huracán in Lamborghini's range. It is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 developing 640hp, up 30hp from the standard Huracán AWD coupe and 600Nm of torque, up 40Nm. The engine is mated to a tweaked seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox paired with a Haldex permanent four-wheel-drive system.

The car rides on 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. It can sprint to 100kph from rest in 2.9sec, 0.3sec faster than the regular Huracán with a top speed of over 325kph.

Owing to an ultra-lightweight carbon-fibre and aluminium construction, the Huracán Performante is 40kg lighter than the standard supercar. Use of the new material is focused on active aerodynamic elements such as the flaps on the rear wing and inside the front spoiler. The flaps are electrically actuated to help save weight.

The rear wing features an inner air channel, which splits to the left and the right to allow aero vectoring for high-speed cornering. According to Lamborghini, the wing gives the Performante 750 percent more downforce than a standard Huracán with no wing.

At the front of the car, flaps inside the spoiler close when the active aerodynamic system is off and then open when it is on, reducing frontal air pressure and directing it through a channel under the car in order to reduce drag for optimum acceleration and top speed.

The design of the Performante heavily reflects that of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo racer. Other modified touches include a bronze engine manifold cover, which has been used on past Lamborghini special editions such as the Diablo 30th Anniversary.

2017 Jeep Compass for India revealed

Jeep is set to showcase the India-spec Compass SUV to the media on April 12, 2017. The manufacturer has released a video of the SUV on its website. The Compass will be Jeep’s first locally assembled model with production planned at Fiat’s Ranjangaon facility.

For India, the carmaker is expected to have an extensive line-up of models which will include a petrol, a diesel, an automatic and a 4x4 drivetrain in the hopes of making an immediate impact in the segment.

Although the company is tight-lipped about engine details,best replica watches we believe the diesel will be a Multijet 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine that should put out 170hp and 350Nm of torque. The automatic gearbox, a nine-speed unit, is likely to be paired with this engine. For the petrol Compass, it will be a 1.4-litre Multiair engine that puts out 140hp. The engine uses a turbocharger and has electro-hydraulic solenoids between the camshaft and the valve to achieve precise variable timing. This helps the engine claim more power and efficiency than a regular variable valve timing engine. True to Jeep's off-roading credentials, the 4x4 system will have a low ratio and a traction management system for various terrains like sand, mud, rocks, etc.

In terms of exterior styling, there is expected to be little that'll set the India-spec SUV apart from the international model. The interior, however, could get a few changes such as dual-tone upholstery and plenty of metal-finished trim to meet the preferences of Indian customers. Higher variants for India are likely to offer leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof and locking differentials to give it true off-road credentials.

The Compass will compete with models like the Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V, but its 4x4 option is what will set it apart. Expect prices to be in the region of Rs 18 to 25 lakh.
