Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 coupe 2010

At 86, Carroll Shelby’s name still draws. With 540 hp and a fully evolved chassis, the GT500 has tire-melting power and surprising control, even if the ride tosses your head on rough roads. With GM and Chrysler on the ropes, no Camaro or Challenger is likely to challenge it.

The 2010 Chevy Camaro SS Muscle Car

With Dodge and Ford having already enjoyed the spotlight in this segment, Chevy has to be back with a bang. Is this car worth the bit of attention? The answer is an emphatic yes!

The 6.2 liter V8 under the hood screams power – this beast is capable of rocketing from zero to Camaro LS3 Enginesixty in right around four and a half seconds. With more horses and much better time zero to sixty than either the new Mustang or the new Challenger – Chevy clearly made their point where most people want to see it, in sheer power.

A pleasant, unexpected surprise from the 2010 Camaro SS comes in terms of audibles – or lack there of. There is no question that the engine is powerful, in fact at more than 425 horses it’s super powerful – in Muscle cars it’s customary for the engine noise to be almost loud enough to drown out any and all conversation that would take place in the cock-pit, that doesn’t happen with this incarnation of the SS. A little quite for the Camaro as the Chevy has opted to keep the volume on the engine down. Surely this will leave many car enthusiats dissapointed. If you have to hear what’s under the hood, then roll down your window.

Another big surprise for a powerful Muscle car – the EPA just gave the 2101 Camaro SS “excellent fuel economy ratings”, which is highly unexpected, but could be a very strong selling point as the prices of gas continue to fluctuate. The Camaro is not excatly apollogetic about keeping mother earth green. At 16 MPG city and 24 MPG highway the guilt is washed away once you enjoy that power.

Chevy doesn’t preclude anyone from owning this car either – the base V6 Camaro starts at a very affordable twenty-three thousand and the ultra powerful V8 SS starts at right around thirty thousand.

Is there anything that Chevy could change that would make the 2010 Camaro better? Sure there were some minor issues or concerns.

For starters, much like the new Dodge Challenger, the driver’s view could be a bit better. With the current body style, there Camaro 6-Speed manualare a few more “blind spots” than would be considered comfortable, though some minor adjustments in interior design for the next version could most likely easily clear that up. For the next version, Chevy could also look to eliminate some of the plastic in the interior in favor of a little more chrome and cloth.

Aside from those few minor adjustments, Chevy absolutely did not disappoint with the 2010 Camaro SS. This car, all in all, is a fantastic piece of machinery and is at least head, if not head and shoulders above the competition in its class.

Mazda Hydrogen Hybrid?

A car that can run on hydrogen and gasoline. Alternative fuels are good for the environment and reduce our reliance on a scarce resource, but they’re not always practical. For a while now we’ve had the technology for hydrogen cars, electric cars, biodiesel cars and more. Why aren’t they in widespread use yet? Because regular people can’t use these vehicles to meet their needs as efficiently as cars that run on Conventional fuels.

What do regular people need? A car that is reliable, reasonably priced, safe, cost effective to run, and can get them where they need to go. One of the roadblocks has been limited range for the amount of fuel a car can store. A tank of gasoline can get you about 300 miles before you have to fill up. We’re pretty used to that. We don’t have to stop for gas every hour, and there are plenty of gas stations within our range. Even if you’re travelling between cities, you can certainly find gas stations less than 300 miles apart. What if your car ran on something else? First you have the issue of how far it can go on a fill-up or a charge. We need to develop ways to store enough energy in the available space with the available technologies. This presents a problem with some of the technologies, including electric and hydrogen. The second problem is availability of fuel wherever you might want to go. Until more customers buy a fuel, it won’t be cost effective for service stations to offer it.

So what’s the solution? How are we going to move from conventional to alternative fuels, as we must do? Hybrids. We need cars that can run on an alternative fuel but also have a gasoline backup. They will greatly reduce our use of gasoline immediately, while providing the flexibility to use something we know we can rely on.

Mazda’s new Premacy Hybrid runs on Hydrogen and gasoline. This increases its range to about 125 miles, double that of the Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE of 3 years ago. That’s still less than conventional fuel cars. Is it enough? For a lot of people it probably is. Especially when you consider the lower fuel costs and the fact that it produces far lower emissions.

Mazda Premacy Hydrogen Rotary Engine Hybrid

But you won’t see any new Mazda Premacy Hybrids on the road in the U.S. This technology is still in the experimental stage. Mazda has just leased a few of these cars to Iwatani, an energy development company in Japan. They’ll use the cars for business purposes and provide feedback to Mazda.
Will hydrogen hybrids become a viable option in the U.S.? It’s difficult to say. A lot depends on the advances that Mazda is able to make on hydrogen technology and on how well other technologies, especially electric hybrid cars, perform.

Toyota Matrix 2009 Redesigned

If you are looking for an affordable vehicle with a lot of versatility, then the 2010 Toyota Matrix is the car for you. The Matrix was designed for people who want a vehicle with a sporty image and high functionality. It’s practical, stylish and affordable. It’s rated one of the best compact cars for hauling people and cargo in its price-class. The Matrix has a high safety rating; three stars for front-passenger protection and four stars for rear-passenger protection.

Its large cargo area can be expanded by folding rear seats and folding the front-passenger seat. The Matrix also has: a durable plastic cargo floor, adjustable tie-downs for securing any bulky/messy cargo, a roomy backseat with five inches of head room (allowing it to accommodate adults), all-wheel drive, antilock brakes, and stability control. Under the hood, the Matrix has a 1.8L four-cylinder engine putting out 126-hp and 122 lb-ft torque. The Matrix will also get a combined 28 MPG according to Fueleconomy.

A New one-piece “GENESIS” Begins

What features, or design ...
Spell of two multiple-choice "GENESIS" is changing!

Racing Wheel features only pursued for sure. I would also choose the design only if you can put up with all the others. However, the design and function, or how little wheel that both. They do they get the satisfaction that you stand for something real. "Professional fund" Forging a fabless three vertices in one piece and asked what all the pieces wheel.

Parallel to the forging durable, easy to take someone like a cast one piece wheel design. Fabless nearly impossible to attempt this conflict has done. Pursue the design and functionality without compromise, reached conclusions about how the latest RIM molding process MAT (Most Advanced Technology). 2.3 is the next generation of forged wheels formula a formula applied to the casting wheel rim of the wheel spinning piece of molding methods. MAT By applying this process, significant changes in internal organization of the material. Even in dense tissue with only aluminum forged wheels, (metal flow) has become possible to achieve. The major strength of the material up, you have succeeded in forging a par with strength and rigidity.

Get the ultimate lightness and strength.

"Genesis" design technology to all feedback wheel racing activity has been accumulated in the top fabless category. 20,19,18 of weight reduction due to lower spring-inch large diameter and required. MAT also benefit from the strength of the material received by the process and made it possible to thin the rim. Rim Kara traditional 1 / 3 will realize that it is vivid and thin I asked.

The traditional one-piece wheel casting is adopted Andakattodezain been possible. The first two to give the press the effort of fabricating process, achieve significant weight. Thus, casting a very traditional one-piece wheels for 40% of the weight to be successful. And make sense of the beauty and visual volume throughout undercut the back spoke up. This is consistent with the idea of fabless customers with three-dimensional surface configurations.

Finally Naru the area of engineering art.

This latest casting technology also contributed to the design surface. Including undercut earlier, exceeding the freedom to forge. 10-spoke radial evolution of the orthodox systems of motor sport. With excellent stress distribution in the corresponding conventional reverse Zoridezain Bikkukyaripa was also impossible. Of course, MAT benefits of thin-spoke recipe is immeasurable. The center caps were decorated with ornaments, including logos, ring, divided into three-piece construction cover. Give the design of the cover portion is an extension of the spokes. Visually look larger while the size and shape of one normal limb and they will decorate your feet stylish than ever. Result, the completion of a compromise unpredictable unique design without sacrificing any of the fabless design and functionality.
