New Rolls Royce – Elegance and Style

Rolls Royce are a British car producer and one of the few to focus on luxury as the reason for purchasing them – today the brand is identical with high-end luxury, a very high price tag and a no negotiation attitude to comfort and style. Not for Rolls Royce is the race car rare breed though their engines are found everywhere, including in contemporary jet aircraft!

In 1904 Frederick Royce met the noble Charles Rolls – Royce was an electrical engineer while Rolls was the son of a blue-blooded Baron, but he was also a serious car fan. A partnership was formed with Royce building the luxury automobiles and Rolls accountable for selling them. The company they shaped was Rolls Royce and was based upon Royce’s embryonic car business and ongoing life at Christmas 1904.

The Silver Ghost was launched in 1907 as the first true Rolls Royce vehicle (previously they had been budged Royce designs). The Silver Ghost was motorized by a 6-cylinder engine and the interior was painted a silver color (hence the name Silver Ghost). The standing for quality was established with the Silver Ghost when one was finally driven for more than 15,000 miles without engine failure – a notable feat in those days.

The initial success of the business came to a tragic end in 1910 when Rolls, an adventurer and speed freak, was killed flying a bi-plane, again a novelty sport afforded only by the very rich. Nevertheless, the company sustained and with the advent of World War One, the Silver Ghost chassis was used as the basis for the British armed car used in the conflict.

The following decade, known as the Roaring Twenties, was typified by high expenditure and lavish living which meant that Rolls Royce did well. The cars also got their moniker of “Roller” and despite the foreword of the Baby Roller, the trend was for bigger cars. As a result, the Phantom I and II were designed and launched which capitalized on the make name and standing for luxury with cost not an object.

Throughout the rest of the 20th century, the company has prolonged and developed further models, cushioned from the worst of economic downturns and another World War by relying on royal support and a reputation for high presentation producing quality engines. In the Second World War for example, the iconic Spitfire fighter plane was motorized by a Rolls Royce Merlin engine.

The 21st century has seen the foreword of a new range of cars including the Silver Spur and Silver Spirit, both carrying the luxury tent into new territories and the new millennium. The all new Phantom was launched in 2003 and was obtainable not only as a luxury sedan but also came as a coupe and an adaptable model. Rolls Royce celebrated 100 years of making fine luxury cars in 2004 but more launches have emerged since then. The Rolls Royce Ghost packs a powerful presentation punch – a top speed of 155 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 acceleration record in only 4.8 seconds. While Rolls Royce’s are built for console, there is a genuine lion under the hood.

Jaguar Confirms Latest Supercharged Six for F-type and Introduces a Turbo Four [Beijing Auto Show]

May 16, 2012 in Auto News, Cute Cars, Strange Cars by admin

Two new engines with enforced induction will join Jaguar’s roster in the company’s push to grow sales in the U.S., Europe, and China.

A supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 has been derived from Jaguar’s dazzling 5.0-liter V-8, and will make 340 hp in most applications. The future F-type sports car will debut the engine, and will wholly offer a special 380-hp version. We’re guessing the high-po V-6 is being kept out of the sedans for now because it would overlie with the naturally aspirated V-8, which is rated at 385 hp. Since the F-type is almost certainly not being engineered to take a larger eight-cylinder engine, there’s no risk of duplication. Jaguar isn’t chatting about torque for either version of the supercharged six yet, but a variant of this engine previewed in the C-X16 impression car the forbearer of the manufacture F-type delivered 332 lb-ft.

On the smaller side, Jaguar is established a 240-hp turbocharged four. In all probability, this is the same 2.0-liter train used in the Range Rover Evoque itself borrowed from Ford although the Jaguar version is rotated for longitudinal fitting. Jaguar’s turbo four has the same dislocation down to the cubic centimeter, bore, and stroke as the Evoque’s four, as well as Ford’s 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine in the Escape, Explorer, Edge, and more. Based on that, we’re pegging the still-not-announced torque rating for Jaguar’s version of this engine at a strong 250 lb-ft.

Both engines will use eight-speed diffusion, sourced from ZF and also used by BMW, Audi, Chrysler, Rolls-Royce, and Bentley. It’s likely that the F-type will also offer a physical gearbox with its V-6, but it hasn’t been established yet. You’ll probably be forced to choose the routine if you want the elective engine stop-start system, though.

Audi Q2: The newest intel!

May 14, 2012 in Cute Cars, New Cars by admin

Our elite images reveal the new baby SUV which is expected to be previewed by a idea in the next 12 months. And as you can see, it will look sportier than the five-door Q3.

The dense body means it should be light sufficient to run the A1’s engine family, too, which will mean the latest 1.4-litre direct injection four cylinder turbo, total with cylinder deactivation. With the lion’s share of sales predictable in Europe, it will come with a competent 1.6-litre diesel, too.

Inside, the Q2 is being set up as a severe four seated, with a folding rear seat layout to maximize what promises to be partial luggage space. That’s because the roofline is probable to swoop down considerably to produce a smaller, high-rise SUV in the fashion of BMW’s X6.
