2009 Fiat 500c

Since the success of the retro style Fiat 500 that came out in Europe, it should come as no shock that a 2009 Fiat 500c is on the way. This is a great version of the car that now has a great drop top to go with it. The design of this soft top does not make it your typical convertible car at all. However, the main goal was to make this car stay true to the original 1957 open top model cars, and they have done just that. Although you will not get the full top down “experience”, it is more than enough to please most riders.

Just like most convertibles today, putting down the top of the 2009 Fiat 500c only takes the push of a button. At the start, this car will come out in three different colors. These colors are red, black, and ivory.

Now for the good stuff! The 2009 Fiat 500c comes with a 75hp, 1.3 litre diesel engine. You can get a 100hp, 1.4 litre gasoline engine if you want. The manual transmission models will, of course, showcase new automatic start and stop technology. It's always worth noting that this car is really good on gas mileage. Thus, for people who are looking for both a car to drive them around everyday and a pleasure car, this car is perfect for you.

This car is set to launch in Europe this spring, but if you keep your fingers crossed, you may hear a rumour that Chrysler is planning on bringing the 2009 Fiat 500c to the US. Although this has not been planned out, you could always special order your car from overseas.

2009 Jaguar XK Series

There are a lot of great cars out there, but the Jaguar XK series offer both sporty features and luxury all rolled up into one. The 2009 Jaguar XK Series is a 2 door, 4 passenger sports car. It comes in both a hard top and convertible model.

When the car first comes out, it is going to come with a standard 4.2 liter engine. It's going to be a V8 with over 300 horsepower! Of course, even with this engine, it is still going to get a lot of miles to the gallon. In fact, the Jaguar XK will get 25 miles to the gallon on the highway and 16 miles to the gallon in the city. If you opt to go with the convertible model, then you get a little bit more bang for your money. You will get a 4.2 liter, V8 engine, but it will have 420 horsepower and comes supercharged. Even with this feature, it still gets 15 miles to the gallon in the city.

The thing that people love about the 2009 Jaguar XK is the performance and the comfort of these cars. They are quick, and they have a lot of cool features. However, a lot of people are not happy with the backseats. Like with most sports cars, the backseats do not look like they are intend for human use.

Overall, this is a car that you are going to be happy with. It has a great surround sound audio system that it comes with it, as well as a USB input so you can load up all your MP3's to it.

The All Electric 2009 Roadster

When you think of sports cars, you normally do not think of sports cars with electric engines. However, the 2009 Roadster is going to change the way you look at sports cars forever! This is a 2 door, 2 passenger convertible sports car that comes in only one trim for now. When this car first comes out it will have a 248 horsepower engine and red line at 13,000 rpm. The one speed automatic transmission is, of course, the standard for this car.

The starting price for the 2009 Roadster is going to be at $109,000. However, the amount of money you save on gas is going to be well worth the high price tag. The lithium ion battery that comes with the car is going to have a life use of over 100,000 miles. The actual life of the battery is not yet known. However, the company that makes the car promises that you can get replacement batteries for very cheap, making these all electric cars last a lot longer than the gas cars, mostly because the engine takes much less of a beating. With gas engines it has to deal with the combustion chambers. As you can guess, these electric cars are run a little bit differently.

This car does have a lot of speed to it. In fact, it is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds (3.7 seconds to be more precise). The car gets about 120 mpgge (miles per gallon gasoline equivalent). Although everything runs off the battery, the car gets about 90% efficiency from battery to wheel.

A hobby for automaniacs

Drivers and tennis players should visit a website where they have a wide range of rackets and accessories to choose from. Shopping for the right racket is not easy: they come in different styles and sizes and the buyer should pay attention to the head size, technology, price and brand.

For example beginners should consider a racket with a head size of 107-125 sq. in. because they allow the player to focus and perfect the swing. Intermediate players should consider a head size of 99-106 sq. in. because it offers both power and control over the game. For advanced players, the head size is smaller: 90-98 sq. in. which are more control oriented.The website provides a buyer's guide and useful advice for many products: strings, nets etc.

The website also has a guide for buyers, where all the questions are answered, so that the buyer can make a good buying decision. Apart from rackets and racquets, the website offers a wide range of accessories like: nets, strings, rebounders, ball machines, gym floor covers, bags, shoes and apparel for men and women. Almost all brands are covered: Boris Becker Tennis, Head, Gamma, Prince,Reebok and many more. Prince tennis rackets have a special offer: for every racket you buy, you get a special bag offer.

The good news is that tennis players can take advantage of the online sales and get their equipment for very special prices. Then they can drive their favourite car to the tennis club and enjoy an active day.
