N this type car RadX cannot drive 1.... no lesen 1

 

Bro, trying to lure me to the dark side (read Tiko) right? Hahaha... And don't get me started about leather... now guess what is so special about this spok car? :grin:

 

Lamborghini Aventador SV

Got it? Nope? Leather, it got a very special leather... [:p]

 

This is the first production car to feature Lamborghini's innovative Carbon Skin® material. A significant example of Automobili Lamborghini's leading position in the research, development and production of CFRP materials, this material is the lightest available and it is flexible and robust. Incorporating a highly specialized resin, the woven carbon fiber fabric is extremely soft to the touch, yet very hard-wearing. The Superveloce's inner roof and parts of the cockpit are clad in this highly exclusive material.

 

Reportedly, the material is made of woven carbon fibers (in a 2×2 twill pattern) that have been soaked in a specially formulated resin. Described as an “entirely new impregnation system” not previously used in the market, the resin stabilizes the fiber structure after it is cured, yielding a composite that remains strong yet soft and flexible. Although it is not breathable in its current format, the resulting matte fabric is said to have excellent drape and hand (a soft feel to the touch) and conforms to a wide variety of contours.
 
Luciano De Oto, chief of the Lamborghini Advanced Composite Research Center (ACRC), says, “You can imagine all the uses in applications that require flexible, light and strong materials,” noting that beyond auto trim upholstery, other possible uses include high-end clothing and luggage. De Oto also says the new CarbonSkin fabrics have passed Lamborghini’s wear and aging tests and actually contribute to absorbing deformations made by a seat occupant’s back and head. “For sure, this material is a step forward in the standard conception of automotive interiors,” he adds.

Maybe Lamborghini may introduce some clothes made of this material under it's apparel line, but don't think will be affordable for the masses.  :a-confused:

This is the 1st generation Mazda MPV, which was not sold in Singapore. 

 

autowp.ru_mazda_mpv_151.jpeg

 

autowp.ru_mazda_mpv_68.jpeg

 

autowp.ru_mazda_mpv_148.jpeg

 

The special thing about this first people mover from Mazda is with the drive train and transmission.

 

The MPV was designed from the ground-up as a minivan specifically for the American market, and was introduced in 1988 for the 1989 model year. It was based on the large rear-wheel-drive LV platform of the Mazda 929, and this larger platform allowed such options as a V6 engine, and optional four-wheel drive. However this large platform created some liabilities in other markets. When it was introduced in Japan in January 1990, it was regarded as a luxury vehicle, as its engine displacement and exterior dimensions exceeded Japanese government regulations for vehicles classified as "compact", and as a result, Japanese buyers were liable for additional annual taxes.
 
Its selectable 4WD system is not to be confused with all road conditions "all-wheel-drive" systems; the MPV can be switched into locked 4WD with a switch mounted on the column gear selector. A dash mounted switch controlled the center differential, creating a locked power distributions on the front and rear axles. The 4WD is not for use on dry roads, but can be engaged and disengaged while moving.
 
This was also the only Mazda MPV generation with a manual transmission, offered in the '89 through '91 model years. The middle row was available as a 3-person bench, allowing seating for eight, when most minivans only seated seven.

This is not a normal W124...

 

autowp.ru_mercedes-benz_e500_3.jpeg

 

autowp.ru_mercedes-benz_e500_7.jpeg

 

I know you will be screaming in your heart, what the heck is Carbon82 talking about? What can be so special about this >20 years old Mercs? Well, the answer started from the model badge, on it boot cover...

 

Mercedes Benz W124 500E ('91 - '93) / E500 ('93 - '95)

 

autowp.ru_mercedes-benz_e500_10.jpeg

 

mercedes-benz_e_500_limited_24.jpg

 

From 1991 to 1994, Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E (W124.036). It was created in close cooperation with Porsche; each was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly — taking a full 18 days to complete each model. Design began in 1989 and into 1991. Called '500 E' through model year 1993, for model year 1994 it was face-lifted along with the rest of the range and renamed to 'E 500'.

 

The 500 E had a naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine derived from the 500 SL (R129) roadster. Called the "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" by the press, performance tests of the day yielded impressive results: 0–100 km/h times of 5.5 to 6.0 seconds and acceleration through the quarter-mile in 14.1 seconds at 163 km/h. The top speed was redline limited at 6,000 rpm to 260 km/h. It was rated at 16.8 L/100 km (5.9 Km/L) in the city and 13.8 L/100 km (7.2 Km/L) on the highway.

 

Because of its look, limited numbers, hand-built construction, and unique pedigree, the 500 E is already considered a "classic", even within Mercedes-Benz. Only 10,479 units of 500E & E500 were built between 1990 - 1995. 

 

1990 => 46 units
1991 => 2,566 units
1992 => 4,416 units
1993 => 1,596 units
1994 => 1,735 units
1995 => 120 units
 
The 120 units produced between January to May 1995, were last-request cars for special customers before the series ceased production. These last cars were produced in the Porsche Rossle Bau building alongside Audi RS2 sport wagons, as that production contract went into full swing with the same work-staff that built the 500E and E500.
 
Now you know why I get so excited earlier, when I thought I spotted a E500 on our road... [:|]

Want to make a guess how many cup holders can a passenger vehicle have? Any car, be it a 2 seater coupe, 4 door sedan, MPV, SUV, etc.

 

I hear 8, or was it 10? What? >10?? Well, I am sure you will be as surprised as me when I revealed the answer...

BN-WW193_backgr_16U_20180105121318.jpg

 

Each red rot denote a cup holder, so start counting now. [dizzy]  And BTW, also make a guess which car is this... [:p]

 

 

 

OK, now got it? I mean both the number of cup holders as well as the model name of this car? [sly]

 

 

 

BN-WW192_fallba_4U_20180105121317.jpg

 

And this is how the new 8 Seater SUV from Subaru look like...

Why would anyone need so many cup holder in a car? 1 for hot drink and 1 for cold drink for each occupant? And the spare 3 cup holder for errr ... [idea]  bottles containing tap water for clearing bird shit from the car??

 

Now, since there are so many holder, and if really all were utilized during a journey, maybe time for Subaru to consider adding a portable toilet to the car... :grin:  :grin:

It is hidden in it boot

Got it? Yes, it has a 2nd pair of tail light, hidden in it boot.

 

Why there is a need for the hidden tail light? Well, if you take a closer look at the tailgate, it open up in a whole piece, including the external tail light affixed to it. And for the obvious reasons, it is unsafe to have the car stopping by the road side or in darkness, since other motorist will not be able to see it under dim light condition, thus there is a need to add the inner pair of tail light, to make the car more visible (when the boot is open) in the dark.

 

There is another Opel model that has the same hidden tail light, for the same reason.

Anyone can guess why is there a ghost button on the remote of Koenigsegg Regera?

The answer is actually already in the photo I have posted. :excl:

 

In case you still don't catch it, it is for showing off, and I am not joking. [nod]

 

Pressing the ghost button on the remote control will open up all movable doors and cover of the million $$$ super car, as you can see in the video below. :yuush:

 

 

And it is not just the Regera, the latest Jesko have the same feature too (and they call it the "Ghost Package")!

Watched a documentary called Apex where they talked about hypercars.

The ghost emblem on Koenigsegg belonged to an old fighter plane squadron.

Koenigsegg converted the old hanger into a manufacturing plant. 

Only the cars built there will carry this ghost emblem;  koenigsegg cars built elsewhere do not carry this emblem.

Yes, Christian Erland Harald von Koenigsegg, the founder and CEO of the Swedish high-performance automobile manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive AB, explains that they stick a little ghost on all their cars because of a fire. A fire that forced them to move into an old airplane hangar that once housed the Swedish air force’s Johan Röd squadron, a squadron that used the ghost symbol and the English motto “the show must go on” on their Saab AJS37 Viggens and other aircraft.

 

By adopting the ghost badge, Koenigsegg is helping keep the show going on for the old squadron, which is a pretty worthwhile thing to do.

 

Just to 27:00 mark for the fire and ghost symbol

 

And some planes that featured the ghost symbol

Actually car makers not just sell cars they also sell in-car gadgets.

 

I wonder how Audi and Citroen sell their cars in the US when their regulation requires the car tail lights to be fixed when the boot opens? To them it's a safety concern.
