2010 Mercedes-Benz Sport Cars Biome Concept

2010 Mercedes-Benz Sport Cars Biome Concept
Born out of the 2010 LA Auto Show’s Los Angeles Design Challenge, in which automotive designers are given free range to envision the future of transportation, the Biome is meant to blend seamlessly into the planet’s ecosystem. That means all components of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Sport Cars Biome Concept car are “grown” organically, and it emits pure oxygen and is fully compostable at the end of its service life.

The basis for the Biome Concept is a vehicle that "grows in a completely organic environment from seeds sown in a nursery." Not only that, but it's powered by a combination of the sun and a chemical bond from an imaginary liquid dubbed BioNectar4534. It's all natural, all organic and all science fiction.
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME is a natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad.

This year the competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz Sport Cars Biome Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs (around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz Sport Cars Biome Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more trees and at the same time maintain natural resources.
The Los Angeles Design Challenge is part of the Design Los Angeles conference, taking place from 17 to 18 November 2010 as part of the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Best Aprilia RSV4 2011

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, though we expect it to be This special . Tricolour. livery as they call it is symbolic of the Italian flag and pays tribute to Max Biaggi and his recent world championship aboard the machine. Rounding out the changes is a slightly updated paint scheme, featuring the traditional Aprilia black/red but with an added green and white accent to the lower. A new 200/55-17 rear tire has been specially designed for the RSV4 APRC by fellow Italians Pirelli, featuring a dual compound design aimed to give riders a capable tire for both aggressive street and track use. Internal gear ratios are also, optimized for track use, likely meaning they are closer together and feature a taller first gear, though exact details have not yet been released, and produce slightly more power.

 In terms of changes to the machine’s actual hardware, the RSV4 SE keeps the same 65-degree V-Four powerplant as the previous Factory model, though it now features a new exhaust that is claimed to be lighter 2011 Aprilia RSV4 APRC SE A new exhaust system is both lighter and produces more power, while Aprilia and Pirelli have teamed up to develop a new dual-compound 200/55-17 rear tire designed specifically for the RSV4 APRC SE.  Because Aprilia realizes that this machine is designed for the track as much as it is the street, the instrument cluster features two totally different settings, Road and Race, allowing the rider to toggle between two optimal setups, one for each environment, with a simple push of a button.

The New Aprilia RSV4 2011

This technology has only been seen on top level racebikes for the past few years, so to have it available on a street legal production machine this quickly is quite remarkable. The system is armed when the rider squeezes both traction control buttons on the left handlebar when at a complete stop and it features three different settings that, like the rest of the bike's systems, can be adjusted independently each other. A first for a production sportbike of any kind, the launch control system allows the rider to essentially pin the throttle and let out the clutch with haste while the engine management controls the rest with the aim of getting the best possible launch.
The RSV4 has three different APW (Aprilia Wheelie Control) and APL (Aprilia Launch Control) modes as well, while the new Special Edition machine also gets a quick shifter as standard to allow for full throttle up shifts with a simple dab of the left foot. The launch control is a first for any production sportbike.  The mode selector on the left handlebar controls the traction, wheelie and launch control features on the new Italian V-Four.

The system can also be adjusted on the fly via a toggle on the left handlebar and does so instantaneously, giving the rider the ability to use multiple different settings during a single lap if so desired. The sophisticated system runs in conjunction with the ride-by-wire throttle that the RSV4 Factory already has as standard to not only be able to reduce torque when the rear wheel spins but also let the rider control the exact amount of rear tire slippage on corner exit. This advanced electronics system features eight different traction control settings and is called ATC (Aprilia Traction Control). It's a self adjusting electronics system that utilizes wheel speed sensors and a host of other parameters to provide the rider with wheelie control, launch control and variable traction control that is able to adapt to different types of tires basically, it’s the TC system off of Max Biaggi’s world beating World Superbike, just adapted for street use.

And what does it do? Aprilia Performance Ride Control. So what does APRC stand for?  The boys from Noale, Italy, are back at it once again, this time updating the World Championship winning RSV4 Factory with a host of new goodies for 2011, introducing a new top of the line model dubbed the Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC SE.

The Radical Fury Can This Really Be A Honda 2011

Optional Available in Dark Red Metallic and Black beginning in December 2010. Because when you’re aboard one of the coolest rides around, sometimes you just don’t want your ride to end.

Now available as an optional ABS model with Honda’s Combined Braking System, the 2011 Interstate expands its prowess as a prime choice for the open road. Honda Interstate: High Style For A Cross Country Ride Sure it’s fun to have a stylin’ ride, but it can be even better yet when high style merges with the ability to rack up big miles and that’s what the Interstate is all about. Optional ABS and CBS color and availability date TBD. Available in Dark Red Metallic, Pearl White and Matte Orange Metallic beginning in December 2010. Who would have ever thought it possible?

Yet despite the extreme lines and head turning looks, the Fury is backed up with the same fit and finish, functionality, affordability, quality and reliability built into every Honda. Here we have the rolling incarnation of the pure, undiluted chopper essence, a machine that simply looks right, sounds right and goes straight to the heart of the radical in all of us.

Paralleling the surge in industrial output, the demand for its commercial vehicles (CV) is so strong, analysts are forecasting sales to grow over 15% as truck freight rates get better and consumers as well as The positive results make a good conviction in the management's sales projection of 240,000 units for the 2011 fiscal year with the China market getting 25,000 units. Market analysts from Religare Research have forecasted that JLR's sales to average 19,400 units on a monthly basis. Year-to-date aggregate sales oh Jaguar Land Rover sales have reached 92,759 units, 46% year on year. Sales revenues in the US and other world markets were likewise in line with growth trends.

August posted a sales volume growth of 29% year on year as JLR sold 16,220 units. The growing demand for commercial vehicles has seen the increase in Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) sales that is sure to boost positive sentiment among investors. But come 2010, a more upbeat economy that is seeing the end of the global recession has translated into sales that have brought the new Jaguar Land Rover division of Tata Motors into the pink of health. Understandably, those months would not be seeing any encouraging sales for the two marques. Bought for around $2.3 Billion from cash-strapped Detroit automobile leader Ford Motors, those brands went into Tata's umbrella just as the fury of the global economic crisis was taking its peak.

It was only a year ago that Tata Motors must have felt they made the wrong investment decision acquiring the prestigious British marques Jaguar and Land Rover.
