Lucas di Grassi happy with place at Virgin

Posted: 30 Sep 2011 05:25 AM PDT

Lucas di Grassi insists he is happy with his formula one debut this year, despite grappling at the back of the grid with the new Virgin team.

The Brazilian 25-year-old, who slotted into the Renault reserve role late last year, was disappointed to miss out on the race seat in the wake of Nelson Piquet’s ousting.

That place went to Romain Grosjean, and then in 2010 to the Russian pay-driver Vitaly Petrov. “In formula one it’s not always just about talent,” he said in an interview with Formule 1 Race Report. “There are also politics and some decisions you can do nothing about,” added di Grassi.

But although now struggling for reliability and pace, and having been outqualified by teammate Timo Glock at every race so far, di Grassi insists he has no regrets. “Without experience in formula one you have nothing,” said the Paulista. “I am pleased with the progress of my career, because I have followed the right path.” Di Grassi insists that a team like Virgin is a good place to develop as a formula one driver. “It means I can also make some mistakes, because we are all in a learning phase,” he added.

Newey staying put at Red Bull

Posted: 29 Sep 2011 05:25 PM PDT

Adrian Newey looks set to stay at Red Bull for the foreseeable future. The 51-year-old Briton joined the Austrian team from McLaren in 2006, and as chief technical officer is widely credited for the success of the dominant RB6.

Germany’s Sport Bild claims Newey, arguably the most sought-after figure in the entire world of formula one, intends to stay put.

“Contractual matters are confidential, but it’s true,” team boss Christian Horner said of the report. “Last year, Adrian requested to remove a clause that would have ended his contract this year,” he revealed.

Former grand prix winner Gerhard Berger backs the move, insisting that Red Bull will remain on the pace “as long as Newey and Vettel are there”.

June 21 has been set as the deadline for the teams’ actual application and dossier, at which time EUR12,750 must be paid.

The frontrunners must be successful GP2 team ART, headed by FIA president Jean Todt’s son Nicolas, and the Spanish Le Mans competitor Epsilon Euskadi.

422race.com claims that more than one team may be selected by the FIA, in case HRT or Sauber run further into financial trouble.

New York village in talks for US GP

Monticello Motor Club track

Another possible venue for a future United States grand prix has emerged. After talks for a race in Jersey City reportedly collapsed, it is now suggested that Monticello Motor Club, about two hours from New York City, has been earmarked as a possible alternative.

Autoweek published a letter from the club’s president Ari Strauss to members revealing that the club – located in the Town of Thompson in Sullivan County – is in talks with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

The letter also said Strauss met with Ecclestone a few months ago, and that F1 track designer Hermann Tilke has already visited the venue.

Strauss said Tilke “confirmed that our track and surrounding properties, with some expansion and minor track modifications, is an excellent location for a grand prix”.

He explained that he is working on securing the “backing and support of local, state, and federal politicians and organisations” and warned that “securing F1 is like winning the Olympics, competition is fierce, and this is not a done deal”.

Buick Regal GS high performance version

Buick Regal GS

In an ongoing effort to be more appealing to a younger demographic, Buick manufacture is developing a sportier version of the Buick Regal.  If all stays on track, the company could release the car on the market in 2011, according to The Detroit News.

Essentially a rebadged Opel Insignia OPC (except the powertrain), the Buick Regal GS started as a concept car at the NAIAS earlier this year, and the production car might show little difference.  As a design study, the car used a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivering 255 horsepower (190 kW, 259 PS).  The all-wheel drive car featured a six-speed manual transmission, and four-way Recaro front seats.

With the release of a German-produced Buick Regal, the company has managed to strike a nerve with a slightly younger crowd.  The average Buick buyer is now 65-years-old, instead of 72.  Still, the automaker would like to see that number fall even lower.

“Buick kind of lost its way. We built big, floaty, quiet cars — what our customers wanted at the time,” Buick representative Dayna Hart told The Detroit News.

“The GS would be the next step, more performance-based.”

Buick is expected to introduce a small four-door inside the next year-and-a-half.  They are also planning on smaller crossover vehicle based on the Buick Enclave.

Italian Police Briatore’s yacht

Flavio Briatore's yacht

Italian police have seized Flavio Briatore’s yacht. A week after the banned former Renault boss hosted Bernie Ecclestone on the 60-metre Force Blue on the Monaco harbour, police boarded it on Thursday.

They had followed the yacht with high speed boats to the port of La Spezia, near the northern city of Genoa, with the 60-year-old Italian, his wife Elisabetta and new son Falco all on board.

Local prosecutor Walter Cotugno ordered the boat be impounded on the suspicion it is improperly registered as a charter.

Investigators suspect Briatore has registered it in the Cayman Islands, with a hire price of 275,000 euros a week, in order to obtain a tax break and to avoid paying sales tax when anchoring in European harbours.

They suspect the yacht is not chartered at all and in fact is used only by Briatore’s family.

Nissan GT-R Spec V

The Nissan GT-R Spec V is the first factory special edition to come from Nissan Manufacture Japan. While the GT-R Spec V does not add a whole lot performance-wise to standard GT-R cars, its powerful styling enhancements, weight savings and trick high gear boost controller should ensure every unit will be snapped up by the Nissan devout in Japan.

The GT-R Spec V carries the same engine as other GT-R cars, though a boost controller is added which provides additional torque in high gear to pass that imported Corvette ZR1 on the highway, or the Nurburgring. Operated via a button on the dash, the extra boost engages for 80 seconds, then disengages on its own, presumably to save load on the engine.Other Spec V performance extras include a high-flow titanium exhaust, adjustable more-aggressive Bilstein shocks and carbon-ceramic composite Brembo brakes front and rear.

The GT-R Spec V interior reveals the most obvious change here: no rear seat. Left behind are some rather strange looking luggage compartments, though the base GT-R’s rear seat is not so useful anyway, and weight savings will be appreciated.

Outside the GT-R Spec V gets carbon fiber and titanium everything: a new rear spoiler that is sure to please Spec V clientele, a tricky carbon front grill and brake ducts, skirts and some beautiful Rays wheels also available from the NISMO performance shop for other GT-R models.

Peugeot 308 GTi

Peugeot 308 GTi

Peugeot manufacture has launch new series there is Peugeot 308 GTi.For many fans of the French marque it’s time to say “finally”. It’s been more than 10 years since Peugeot has brought out a GTi in this class of vehicle.

The Peugeot 308 GTi will come with the same 1.6 litre THP 147 kW (200 PS) engine that will be featured in the RCZ coupe model. That engine makes the 308 GTI competitive with the 155 kW (211 PS) of the Golf GTI – the benchmark GTI for this segment.

The THP engine, fitted with a twin-Scroll turbocharger and a high pressure direct-injection system with VTi technology (variable valve and timing injection), produces 275 Nm (203 lb-ft) of torque and will come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 7.7 seconds while fuel consumption will be 6.9 liters/100 km and CO2 emissions 159 g/km.

A sound system technology has also been employed to make sure the engine rumble provides for just the right sporty sound that customers will be looking for. For the proper GTi ride the 308′s front MacPherson suspension gets larger bearings with specific damper settings for the 22 mm rods (20 mm in the standard car). The rear torsion beam suspension also gets the same damper treatment.

On the outside are 18-inch wheels with 225/40 R18 tires, a rear spoiler, a lowered rear bumper fitted to a black (Perla Nera) diffuser and dual chrome exhaust pipes. The front fascia also gets a lowering panel borrowed from the 308 CC and a carbon-style insert beneath the front bumper.

GTi-badges are featured on the side and rear of the car. On Peugeot 308 GTi interior are an aluminum foot rest and gear knob and a leather sport steering wheel.The new 308 GTi goes on sale in France on June 10 with prices starting at €26,900.

Car shipping International

Posted: 25 Sep 2011 05:25 AM PDT

Car shipping International is always considered as a tedious task and most often people hire auto transport companies for the job. Transporting your car to a local destination won’t bring up hullabaloos but if you are moving abroad it would surely cause some tensions for you. Car shipping would the best option for people who are moving overseas. It may not seem to be popular and finding a reliable car shipping company would be really troublesome.

People go for car shipping because of many reasons. Usually shipping companies are employed to transport valuable cars and antique cars that cannot be driven over a long distance. Even ordinary cars are transported through ships if the family moves abroad. Sometimes, the car manufacturers make use of car shipping services to move their fleet of cars at times of relocation or for a new showroom.  The process seems to be simple and if proper care has been taken while selecting the company, the car shipping would be entirely risk free.

Planning beforehand is essential before shipping your car since the vehicles are considered to be the most valued possessions. You cannot afford to buy a new car everyday and you give great importance to it too.  You would want the car to be shipped carefully and responsibly without causing any damages. So it is important to plan the whole process before leaving your car in the hands of professionals. Proper homework is indispensable before hiring any car shipping company.  After short listing a few reputed companies, you must compare the quotes and services offered by them. Try to avoid companies that have had a bad record. It is important to know the history of the company and also ask your acquaintances to suggest a company if they have gone through the same before. The insurance is also a vital factor to consider since that would cover the damages caused during the shipping if any.

While comparing the prices offered by the companies, certain factors should be kept in mind. You must check if you are able to afford the price. The package the company has offered should suit your needs. You must make sure that you would not end up paying more afterwards due to low-quality shipping services. It is good to find out if the company is having any leeway for you to negotiate on price. Also find out about the benefits in hiring a particular company.

Before the signing the contract, you must do all clarifications regarding the services offered by the company. You must select the delivery service like door-to-door service that would leave your car right in front of your home. Tell them clearly if you want your car to be handled with extra care. If you have any particular shipping needs, you must inform them. Once you are clear with them, they would convey their provisions and limitations. It is really important that you take note of everything that the shipping company tells and all promises should be in written format than words.

The insurance coverage is also an important concern. You must reach consensus with the company on the reimbursement terms before hiring them. The terms and conditions should be mutually agreed for avoiding dispute later. You must take initiative to make the deal clear so that the car shipping would be done perfectly.

Ford Will Be Keeping the Flex in U.S. market

Posted: 25 Sep 2011 05:25 AM PDT

Ford Flex

Ford Flex

Ford will be keeping the Flex in U.S. market lineup, despite disappointing sales and the introduction of a new Ford Explorer SUV coming later this year. The Flex was meant to be Ford’s family-friendly people-mover for the North American market after the automaker exited the minivan segment with the discontinuation of the Freestar model in 2006.

But the boxy styling of the vehicle has attracted critics and sales of the Flex have been low. Ford sold only 12,598 units in the first four months of this year – an 14.8 percent increase over the same period last year but still a modest number. By contrast, Explorer sales ballooned 41.2 percent for the same period.

The new Ford Explorer will be offering three rows of seats, like the Flex, and lots of cabin space. But Ford will be keeping the Flex around because its sells for a starting price of $29,725 (€23,598) and provides good margins for Ford.

“We think the kind of person that is buying a Flex will continue to do that despite the new Explorer,” said Doug Szopo, executive director for global product planning at Ford.

Audi S7

Our spy photographers have captured the first pictures of the Audi S7.

Taken near the Nürburgring, the photos reveal the S7 will feature a four-tailpipe exhaust system, attractive wheels, a high performance braking system, and a retractable rear spoiler. Other goodies will include modified bumpers, a chrome grille, and a sportier suspension.

Under the hood, power will likely be provided by the RS5′s 4.2-liter V8 with 444 hp (331 kW / 450 PS) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. If that isn’t powerful enough, Audi will offer a RS7 with a 580 hp (433 kW / 588 PS) 5.2-liter V10 or a 572 hp (427 kW / 580 PS) 5.0-liter TFSI V10.

Considering that the A7 will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the S7 may debut simultaneously or possibly at the Geneva Motor Show next year.
