By the British team developed supersonic car "Blood Hound" (Bloodhound) will be October 26 this year in the United Kingdom Cornish New York Airport runway test, is expected to reach 322 km per hour, and will be the end of next year in the South Africa Desert Challenge World Record. "Blood Hound" manufactured by the United Kingdom, cost up to 10 million pounds (according to 1 pound = 8.6495 yuan conversion, equivalent to about 86.5 million yuan), the maximum speed of up to 1000 miles / hour (1609 km / h).
In fact, the "Blood Hound", in October in the United Kingdom Cornish Newquay airport runway test is only a "slow" test drive. Compared to its maximum speed of 1609 km / h, is expected to reach 322 km per hour is clearly in the "jogging", F1 racing straight top speed is about 380 km / h. One of the reasons for the "jogging" is that the 2744-meter-long airport runway is too short to drive at full speed. In addition, since the original design of the hybrid rocket engine mounted on the top of the car has not yet been completed, the "blood hound" test was carried only by the loaded European "Typhoon" fighter engine.
The British Broadcasting Corporation quoted the design team as saying that the runway test in October was to improve the performance of the "Hounded Hound" in order to regain some "Hounded Hound" data, which was significant for challenging the world record in South Africa next year. Mark Chapman, the team's chief engineer, said the test will be an exciting time for the team from design to actual operation. At the same time, it will also be a good display platform, Chapman looks forward to attract more investment to solve a few subsequent issues.
The current world record of car driving is 1228 kilometers per hour. Hybrid Rocket Engine R & D is completed, the "Blood Hound" is expected to challenge the world record in two phases, respectively, to achieve 1287 km and 1609 km per hour.
According to previously reported, "Blood Hound" pencil-shaped shell is made of aviation grade aluminum forged, the body length of about 13.4 meters, the weight is 7.5 tons, 1.83 meters in diameter wheels are made of high strength titanium alloy, which is to To prevent the wheel speed too fast and fly out from the body.
The Soldier Hound was able to reach the Sonics because it was equipped with a new fighter engine, and when the vehicle was accelerated to 300 mph, a hybrid rocket engine located on the roof would continue to accelerate for the vehicle; the rocket engine included a Traditional rockets and a separate engine fuel pump, which allows the "blood hound" maximum power to reach 135000 horsepower, equivalent to 180 F1 racing power.
It is understood that the runway test in October will be the former British Royal Air Force pilot Racing Rods Andy Green (Andy Green) Lieutenant Colonel is responsible for driving, the end of next year's South African Desert challenge world record tour will be completed by it. Andy Green is also one of the R & D and designers of the "Hound Hound" supersonic car.

 New Mini Cooper in the test Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

"We are in no hurry and I'm not getting paid, why should I drive fast, which only increases the traffic risk," says Niki Lauda in the current movie "Rush", as he sits at the wheel of an ordinary road car. Racing rival James Hunt contrast drifts with his British Mini, even if there is nothing to win. Driving as an emotional experience and as vile "From-A-to-B": These two settings are pioneer in the field of the cyclists. And today? Is the Mini still a prime example of the emotional aspect as in the days of Hunt? We have tested the launching on 15 March 2014, the third generation of the car to Puerto Rico. Three cylinder under palm trees Caribbean, palm trees, sand: Despite fine weather I sit down in the morning at ten not the cinematic beach of San Juan, but in the new Mini Cooper. The new generation of the runabout is powered by a 136 hp turbo gasoline engine, which I'm particularly excited. For the first time comes with a mini three-cylinder used, and this type of engine I am - I like the throaty sound harsh, other wrinkles on the nose so many, because it sounds discordant, uncultivated. How will the beloved "Rrrrrr ..." feel in this little car? Small cars are what the city? Not the Mini Already in the first meters is clear that the motor pushes mightily. The turbo makes out for neat torque from below - for those who like to cruise times. Wers sporty like, you can can be brought in 7.9 seconds to highway speed. This figure already reveals a lot. But the kids always straight from zero to hundred hunt? That would be like with the Formula 1 racing into the area, complete nonsense. For me it is inland in the mountains, and since curves are hip, gas and brake, accelerator and brake. I fly at 20 meters high bamboo trees over, scarecrow chickens and chase away stray dogs. Wiesel Flink dashes of Cooper around the corners like a well-trained city Dachshund, the one takes the leash in the forest. Curves, mountains, roads are just the only welfare for the Mini. Small cars are what the city? Maybe, but not the Mini. The total package brings the fun Is it the gear, in the steering, at the circuit on the motor? Hard to say, it is the total package. So go-kart feeling? Well, that often parroted slogan is a merciless exaggeration. Who untrained times an hour go kart driving, know the next day how sore muscles feels in his arms. With a Cooper one does not happen. But it is true that curvy mountain roads as much fun with any other car in this class. Wers detailed wants: Yes, the steering is direct. Yes, the six-speed transmission boasts easy access. And yes, it gives a crisp feel. There are also seats offer excellent lateral support in the back, causing the lower support not really tell on the thighs....

 How good is the new generation of the Nissan Qashqai? Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Damn, now just do not say anything back to the name. But Qashqai is also a (incidentally selected conscious) masterpiece of ineffability. The customers did not seem to bother as Nissan's compact SUV has since 2007 found good 1.5 million fans in Europe. Even on the German car market dominated native of the Qashqai could enormously points. Although he was actually 2013 already on the way out, took up 26,710 SUV friends. For comparison: He is prior to the Skoda Yeti (22,045 pieces) and is in its segment only from the top dog VW Tiguan surpassed (57,838 copies). Refreshed inconspicuous Now blow the Japanese to Halali and bring the second-generation Qashqai Tiguan for hunting in position. One has to have a closer look to identify the successor can. In length it is nearly five inches longer, while the height has been lowered by 1.5 inches. Visually engages the new Qashqai on the design of its predecessor, but got out of the stylists more dynamic and sharpness pressed into the sheet. But no need to worry: the grotesque excesses in the style of a Mercedes GLA not take place. Why should they? Finally, the current design has paid, also benefit the visibility thereof. By the way: Anyone looking for a successor to the seven-seat Qashqai +2, must pick up the 4.66 meters long, the new X-Trail in the future. clever solutions Thoughtful presents the boot here to fit at least 430 liters of luggage inside. The headroom under the tailgate has been increased by 20 centimeters to 1.86 meters. If the rear backrests folded, creating a flat surface, the maximum boot capacity is 1,585 liters. In practice convince both the low sill and the variable cargo floor called "Flexi-Board". The highlight here: The front section can be raised as a room divider, which pays off when stowing of smaller purchases. We continue to work forward and check the rear. There, the legroom is good, although not limitless lush. Then we familiarize ourselves with the cockpit. Major problems are not, almost everything is in the right place. Thoughtful details include center armrest with tons of storage space and USB connectivity, five-inch TFT display between the instruments and the electronic parking brake that automatically triggers when the car moves. What generally is striking is the significantly improved material selection and perceived quality.

 Dancing on Ice: The Maserati Ghibli S in Q4 four-wheel test Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Not always do all what I want. So ists here. The two tons of car do not move in the direction that I want. I turn the steering wheel and open the throttle, but the Maserati pushes to the right of the curve out and not mess left around the bend, where he should go. But outside it's so pig smooth that every cat thrives only on the tips of claws. With winter tires on ice The profile of the tire pressed into a thin layer of snow underneath is pure ice. "You have to wait until the front wheels have grip until you give gas," said Luca reports from the passenger seat, "Can you feel that?" After the third round on the ice track in the middle of the Italian Alps, I feel what he means. Luca Rossetti is professional rally driver and instructor at Maserati. He knows what he's talking about. He kanns perfect, I'm still practicing. On the first lap he was driving because the whole looked more playful. Since he has also explained to me that we would actually have on an ice track as spikes, we do today but with normal winter tires. By feeling the curves I need four rounds to be wagging the Ghibli in the curves so skillfully that ass, as if to tap the village beauty to the land Disco. Then he heard me. I understood how the four-wheel system ticks. So I'll brave and let the big sedan racing down a mountain. I know that the 180-degree turn will be down no problem. Release the throttle gently back down and feel when the front wheels grip again. Then open the throttle and notice how the big car follows my behest driving and easily oversteering comes through the bend. Wow, that's a great feeling! Luca is thrilled. "Yes," he beams, "which is a Maserati!" He says it with so much enthusiasm in the Italian voice that I would buy him the car immediately. But not only because Lucas conviction, but also because of the Ghibli Q4 really fine things can. We drive the icy mountain namely up again, as if it were a Convertible summer trip to the lake. Balance by 50:50 In the middle of the hill, I stop and look at the display behind the steering wheel. It will show you how the torque just distributed between the axles. On a non-slip, dry road engine power drives only the rear wheels. But once on the rear axle will stay out of the grip, the muscle game is distributed. The system sends the power with the help of a multi-plate clutch to the front. This happens within 150 milliseconds, so to speak, in a blink. As a result, even prevail to 50 a balance of 50. And that shows the display from me immediately after I take the foot off the brake and put the accelerator is pressed. In a rear-wheel drive nothing had happened now maximum, the Ghibli but set in motion, as if he were pulled by a rope. Sport button sharpens throttle response and sound Once at the top, I press the Sport button on the center console and give the accelerator pedal spurs. The acknowledgment of the Maserati with a dull, comforting hiss of his four tubes, increases faster gas at, turn up later and leaves the curve wagging the bottom a little more dance to the outside. The heavy car remains still managed provided that I do not want to break the law of centrifugal force. That this is also true for the four-wheel-Maserati, I realize as I turn off all control systems and make only the wheel let. Even now, the Italians clings so confidently around the bends that I had no fear of a winter trip to the refuge. Wers completely safe willl presses the button from the Ice Mode. Then the function for the best possible traction is optimized.

 BMW 518d Touring in review: rich 143 hp for the large Bayern? Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

The BMW 518d is the cheapest of five, who is currently having. With a base price of 39,900 euros, the sedan scrapes narrowly missing the magic forty thousand, the combined costs 42,400 euros. For this, there's the fives with a 143-hp two-liter diesel engine. Naturally raises the question of whether the large Munich befitting moving forward with this engine. In recent beginners, the 520d, at least 184 hp from the same unit to be fetched. The smallest diesel now gets first diesel in the five-set a formal not quite correct "18" in the name. The gasoline-variants are the 18er's for a long time. You often heralded by boredom and glue-pot mentality. How does the 518d will hit (universal turbos)? Test car well stocked As a test car we have a station wagon, which is traditionally called Touring BMW. The comparatively small engine makes the storage space Bavaria for fleet managers as for higher-income fathers equally interesting. The BMW press department has kindly drawn from the solid and the list of extras pretty well executed. Now although we have an almost fully-equipped BMW stand, but a test car price of just under 72,000 euros can even auto editors Once swallow. This should be an entry level (Fiat turbo)? Good usable storage compartment The packaging of the small diesel is a familiar sight, the current 5 Series is already on the market since 2010 and has worked with the make-up pen 2013 just a bit. As a combination, he brings quite ordinary storage qualities. For a trump card in the car quartet but it was enough, as traditionally, BMW estate cars, not. 560 liters fit in the normal state of the rear seats in, 1,670 liters if you fold down the backrests. A Mercedes E-Class swallows the maximum value of almost 300 liters more. For the BMW trunk can be well loaded and folded down seats there's an almost flat base. Correct fine inventions are details such as the separately opening rear window and when the curtain which swings open as if by magic, if you tear open the disc or the big mouth. Well stocked Cockpit The space behind the wheel is as usual the best thing in a big BMW. Since the Munich have again built around the cockpit just around the driver, they will feel as in control of events. Control elements such as the iDrive controller on the center console are easy to reach, the large screen in the dashboard can be read without glare. The car had driven by us comfortable, stop giving sports seats on board, but these cost extra charge. For this, there's the "driving experience switch" next to the selector lever already factory. By pressing a button, the switching times of the optional eight-speed automatic, throttle response, and set in our case, the hardness of the damping (nissan turbo).

 In Tests and drifted: VW Golf R Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Irritated is the German car pile-journalists at Arvidsjaur Flygplats and looks on a yellow sign that explains where to recover his hunting rifle. Where we ended up here, I wonder. Do you have to defend themselves against polar bears here? But then I turn around and see familiar: Advertising Bosch Scores featuring the logos of Audi, BMW, Mercedes-AMG and VW. That's almost everything about this tiny airfield. But the Swedish town near the Arctic Circle can be proud of the Airport, because Arvidsjaur counts only a few thousand souls. The town lives by the German car manufacturers that act here times as travel agents: For example VW gives tours for adventure seekers who want to slip down with the Golf R afloat over the ice lake Arvidsjaursjön. Also, we are there for, we test the new all-wheel drive (forged connecting rods). At minus 23 degrees on the ice lake The next morning I get up at seven clock early on the ice lake. The crackling cold eats slowly into me, the thermometer on Holztipi shows minus 23 degrees Celsius. But I'm lucky: The day before it should have been minus 34 degrees. Before me are around twenty golf R with the engine running on the ice, push their smoke in the darkness like a pack of chain smoking. The Golf R comes later turn, I say to my colleagues and am writing a few rarities. First offers a Golf with the symbol GTE. Wait a minute: GTE, not GTI? Right, we should think of the people athletes, however, the E stands for electric. This is the VW version of the soon venal Audi A3 e-tron. So a plug-in hybrid. Although the thing can drive 50 kilometers electrically and we are this morning first to go into the car, the display shows only 20-kilometers to rest - clear, cold sets the batteries (engine connecting rod). Plug-in cross-Golf In purely electric starting, we miss no force. No surprise here operates an electric machine with impressive 320 Newton meters of torque - the need to first put the studded tires on ice. Together with the 150-hp TFSI engine results in a system output of 204 hp, so the model name rightly to the GTI recalls. And so I schliddere after a few minutes by car from the bare ice, as I sat in a rally car. But that's by design. Finally, Audi Board development Ulrich Hackenberg only on the eve of the event corrects a VW spokesman: The Hybrid Group models are sporty, said Hackenberg, not only the Golf R! To protest the VW engineer in the back seat with no word against the uneven gait. On my few minutes of spin - down more than transversely along - I win, although no evidence for hybrid system, but I close before acquaintance with the ice (crankshafts for sale).
