New Chevrolet Camaro on the way

Well, if you have been on the look out for the next Camaro, look no further. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is on its way. First to be released as a hardtop and then move to a convertible a little ways down the road. As of right now, they have two different models that are coming out. There is the V6 model and the V8. The V6 is going to have 300hp while the 6.2L V8 engine will be pushing 420. Either choice you go with, you will be getting a 6 speed car that comes in both manual and automatic. No matter which model you choose, you can bet that this is a car that can get up and move!

The overall look of the car is very nice. It almost has the look of the new Chargers that are out right now. These are four seater cars that come with a 19 gallon fuel tank. The cars come stock with 18 inch rims, but you can opt to get the 19 or 20 inch rims as well. As you can tell by the design, the makers wanted to bring the Camaro back to a body style that has sold well before. So you can kind of say that it is a body style that is back by popular demand. People have been waiting for the next Camaro for a long time, and it's finally going to be heading our way in 2010. This is one sports car that you are not going to want to miss out on so start saving now.

Road version of Murcielago R-GT available soon

Murcielago R-GT has always wowed car enthusiasts. This track-only, upgraded version of the original Lamborghini Murcielago features the same V12 engine only this time, the Murcielago was assisted by Reiter Engineering. Through this upgraded version, it became a rear wheel powered car which gave way to many upgrades such as air restrictors. Power is then upgraded and the speed of the car is based on how far it can be pushed by the driver. The latest version of this car came out in 2006. The latest version now has a rear wing and new body design. Because of the upgrade and performance, The Reiter Engineering designed Murcielago became a very popular race car.

Because of its fame, Reiter Engineering decided to redesign the car to make street legal. The street legal version was first shown in Essen Motor Show in Germany. But the redesign can’t be easily seen at first glance. It still has the same body work except that exhaust has been moved sideward on top a little bit. The brakes and advanced suspension will also be available to the street legal car. No exact definition on its difference yet but if you base in on front design, the engine has been modified a bit to take up less fuel. The price is not yet indicated however, it is safe to say that this car will not be for the middle class consumers.

Reiter Engineering is one of the most recognized names in the racing industry particularly in cars. It’s affiliation with Lamborghini started in the year 2000 with the Lamborghini Diablo.

BMW Z4 will be revamped

The highly esteemed BMW Z4 will be revamped wherein its main feature will be the aluminium rooftop which is also convertible. Before the new design, the Z4 comes with hard case or convertible but only has a soft top. The new aluminium rooftop convertible will only take at least 20 seconds to open and close. The rooftop could be controlled either from the dashboard or with a remote control.

But aside from the rooftop changes, significant changes on the body will also be implemented. The new Z4 will be a lot longer and even wider. With these changes, more elbow room will be provided in this hi-speed car. Because of the increased in width, the windows have significantly increased – more than 40% increase in its windows will be experienced by the owners of the new Z4.

The addition of aluminium rooftop however will also increase the weight of the Z4. Popular estimates suggest that an increase of more than 90kgs should be expected when compared to previous Z4 cars. But this will be compensated with a revved up engine which increases speed and more clutching options.

This will also usher the newest production practices of BMW. The Z4 will now be built in Germany. The Z series used to be part of the production repertoire of the USA plant. The USA branch of Z4 will now focus on SUVs specifically the X5 and X6. The changes on the production location however, will never change the location of its initial introduction. The new Z4 will be unveiled in the Detroit Motor Show in January 2009.

Rolls Royce: a fine luxury car

When it comes to luxury cars, there is one name that comes to mind. That name is Rolls Royce. This is a car that has been unmatched for a long time in the type of luxury that it has to offer. The amazing workmanship that goes into every car is mind blowing. Although this is one of the high end British luxury cars, it is worth every penny.

Of course, this all brings up one really good question. What makes a Rolls Royce a luxury car? What does it have that other cars do not? After all, a car is just a car. Usually luxury is all in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to something like Rolls Royce, everyone looks at this as a luxury car. You see, what this car is able to do over other cars is to actually capture and harness the great energy that makes a car beautiful. This is not just like a normal car, it’s like a living organism!

Rolls Royce has always been known for great things, like amazing design. However, they also have other features that some cars lack. For example, most Rolls Royce cars have things like heated steering wheels and high grade leather seats. If that is not enough to blow you away, then you may want to check out all of the cutting edge electronics that are in this car as well. There are a lot of cars out there that are great, but none of them are as great as the Rolls Royce.

A car for the Spyder-man in you

If you’re looking for speed in land and water at the same time, this is your car. Spyder is an amphibious sports car that can be used in land and water. On land, the car is powered by a Corvette engine which features 450 HP. The engine comes with five manual transmission mechanisms with full disk brake systems.

The trick in making the car float is in the floatation foam. Once the car hits the water, the foam will immediately take over and will ensure that the car will work as if it’s still running on top of the water. The suspensions of the car are also retractable so the wheels will move upward when transferring from the car engine as source of power to another source of power when in the water.

That leaves us to the engine that will be used in the water. Berkeley Marine Jet will be used when using the car in the water. Based on the pictures, controlling the car in the water is a breeze since you will not need any additional steering wheel. You just have to stick with the same steering wheel and enjoy the waters.

There are two factors through that are holding back the attention of the Spyder - the car can’t have the federal requirement for bumpers and air bags. The bumper would greatly affect the speed of the car on water and might even drag it downward. The airbag will just be released because of the impact of the car to the water. But if you have a large lot where you can just drive and ride the waters without restrictions, this car could be yours for only $175,000.00
