New sport

Given its improved technology, each Toyota Sienna rides good and clean track in the turns, but no more than the newest addition to the line: the sporty SE.

SE is designed for those who enjoy a more sporty design with high performance. The front has a more aggressive and the visual side skirting lowers the vehicle. Aerodynamic sculpting of cuddly 19-inch alloy wheels, specially designed for sporty driving. Separation of the SE away from other qualities, smoked rear lights create a striking visual statement. SE sitting lower on sport suspension to speed feedback and improved handling. In addition, the instrumentation is built with an exclusive and unique interior colors and trim.

Comfort is the key

Cottage of the new Toyota Sienna is a conceptual leap forward, the mixing of more personal space, bigger load capacity, and improve teamwork.

The interior is more than two inches longer, and the seats now have a longer flight, which can accommodate a wider range of shapes and sizes.

The front seats have more travel in the rear and the steering wheel has a less vertical position so that the driver can take a comfortable driving position. The driver of instruments and controls are clear and precise, and width greater cabin to create an expanded personal space for driver and front passenger.

Numerous storage areas, cupholders and cargo space is strategically located in a privileged position. Conversation mirror, sunglass case, a leading integrated console allows eye contact with the rear passengers.
The entire cabin is an open field to create a light and airy atmosphere. With the wider field of view of the rear passengers can look easy.

Both cabins seven and eight seats can be configured to a full contingent of passengers, a load of freight, or a combination of both convenient. In seven-seat cabin, the captain chairs second row slides 23 inches rearward movement of the legs to create for passengers the highest and easier to get in and out. They can be moved near the front seats to make it easy to care for a child passenger, while providing easy access for passengers in the third row.

The center console sliding on the qualities and limited hard XLE four-wheel drive can be shared between the front passenger and second row. The bracket slides into the illuminated area of ​​the second row for easy access to both rows, so the need for storage and passenger comfort can also be served.

For passenger comfort even more, is normal to be in the second row to the limited extent, including the legs and footrest. Second-row seats in all grades have dual armrests, and a mechanism for the movement of an assignment for the seat must be removed.

There are eight models of cars, the second row middle seat can be removed and stored on the left side of the storage area. When the center-seat storage, cup holders and storage compartment is revealed. Eight passengers inside can be easily optimized for seven passengers, and quickly reconfigured back to eight.

The second row seats also have a long fall and end up, allowing them to slide back and forth on the rails spread, making more room for passengers or goods, as required. All of the second row, regardless of the setting out of the way with one touch for easy access to the third row of seats.

60/40 Split and Stow third-row seats folded into one manual, front wheel drive limited power capacity. The third line has been moved back about two inches for added comfort. When the third row of seats is sufficient storage space of five golf bags or four large suitcases. Four clips of food on hand, two rear and two backs in the second row, the convenience of storage.

It's easier than ever to load the Toyota Sienna, with wider doors and a row of seats in the second key. By sliding the second row of seats down to the back, an appointment is created on the road, making it easier to enter, exit, install a child seat, or put a child in a seat. The second row of seats can be moved all the way forward, just behind the front row to maximize cargo capacity behind, especially in the third row stored flat.

With the third row stowed and removed from the second row, the cargo area is about eight feet long by four wide. Open the back door is wide and spacious, set at a height that makes loading and unloading.

Cabin air filter comes standard with air conditioning system, which monitors the temperature of the three different areas.

Innovative Technologies

Toyota has a rear seat Dual View Entertainment Center is another innovative solution. The system uses two displays side by side to create a perfect 16.4 inch widescreen image from a single source. When two separate entertainment options are needed, the system can divide the screen into two individual screens, each with input from various sources. Used as a single screen, it can easily be seen from the third row, and can be operated remotely from anywhere. Used as two screens, the system can adapt to the preferences of two separate passengers who wish to play a video game or watch a DVD simultaneously via the second AUX.

Other technical innovations include the first camera Panorama Toyota behind the monitor. It offers two views behind the vehicle, including a 180 degree view, and display a back-up guides, helping motorists to turn off the parking lot or driveways.

VW Concept XL1 (2011)


Future of mobility is one of the most interesting of our time. The key question: How can the energy consumption of cars will be reduced if all stops were removed to be effective? There is now an answer to this question, and Volkswagen is delivered in the form of the new Concept Volkswagen XL1. Combined consumption: 0.9 l/100 km. No other hybrid car powered by an electric motor / combustion engine the most efficient mix of fuel. The prototype made its world debut at the Salon in 2011 in Qatar Motor (26 to 29 January 2011).

Conceptually, the XL1 Volkswagen is the third step in the evolution of Volkswagen's strategy in a liter. When opened the new millennium, Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Piech, now chairman of the Supervisory Board of Volkswagen AG, made the visionary goal of marketing a production car that was practical for everyday use with a consumption of 1.0 liters fuel per 100 km. The new XL1, Volkswagen demonstrates that this goal is within reach.
New Volkswagen XL1 to achieve CO2 emission value of 24 g / km, thanks to a combination of lightweight construction (self-supporting, and add-on components made of carbon fiber), very low coefficient of drag (Cd 0186), and a plug-in hybrid system - consisting of two-cylinder TDI (35 kW / 48 hp) electric motor (20 kW/27 hp), 7-speed dualclutch (DSG) and lithium-ion battery. Results: The fuel consumption of 0.9 liters per 100 kilometers, the new Volkswagen XL1 allows only 24 g / km of CO2. Because it is designed for plug-in hybrid prototype XL1 can run up to 35 kilometers of pure electric mode, ie do not cause emissions in use. The battery can be recharged by conventional electrical outlet at home. Of course, the reform of the battery is also recruited to recover energy while slowing down, and save as much as possible to the battery for reuse. In this case, the electric motor acts as generator.

Despite the high levels of efficiency, developers were able to design a development organization that provides more daily, with side by side seats instead of the tandem arrangement is seen in the first two 1-liter Car made in 2002 and L1 presented in 2009. The new Volkswagen XL1 produces wing doors make it easier to enter and exit the car. Further progress is made by body parts carbon fiber reinforced polymer pieces (CFRP), a technique used in the automotive Formula 1. Once again, Volkswagen has managed to achieve significant reductions in production costs - an important step to return a limited production run XL1. Background: collaboration with suppliers, Volkswagen has developed and patented a new system for the production of carbon fiber in this process is known as ARTM (Advanced Resin Transfer Moulding).

Plug-in hybrid concept

With the new XL1 Volkswagen is implementing a concept plug-in hybrids are more fuel-efficient technologies in the common rail turbodiesel engine (TDI) and dual-clutch transmission (DSG). TDI produces its maximum effect at 35 kW/48 hp 0.8-liter engine only. The set is housed hybrid above the rear axle car driving. The real hybrid module with an electric motor and the clutch is placed between TDI and 7-speed DSG, this module is integrated into the DSG gearbox, instead of the usual wheel. The lithium-ion battery provides E-motor with energy. The flow of energy at high voltage and the battery or the E-motor controlled by power electronics that operate at 220 volts. Volkswagen XL1 body electrical system is supplied with the necessary 12 volts via a DC / DC converter.

E-motor Interaction and TDI: The electric motor is accelerating TDI (stimulant), but as described can also feed the XL1 concept itself for a distance of 35 km. In this mode, the TDI is decoupled from the driveline to disengage the clutch, and closes. Meanwhile, the clutch on the side of the gearbox is kept closed, so the DSG is fully committed to the electric motor. Important: The driver can choose to drive the Volkswagen XL1 in pure electric mode (if the battery is charged). Once the mode button on the electrical panel is pressed, the car is powered solely by electricity. Restarting the IDA is a very soft and comfortable: In what is known as "pulse start" while driving TDI engine, the rotor of the electric motor accelerates, and is coupled to the clutch motor. This speeds up the TDI at the required speed and starts.

The entire process takes place without any shocks, so that the driver hardly notices the TDI engine restart.

When the XL1 is braked, the electric motor acts as a generator that uses the energy of braking to recharge the battery (renewal). In certain operating conditions, the load is divided in the TDI engine and an electric motor can be moved so that the diesel has the lowest efficiency. Fishing gear is automatically transferred to 7-speed DSG is also always be chosen to minimize power consumption. The motor controller regulates the flow of all energy and disk management tasks, taking into account the power demand at any time by the pilot. Some of the parameters used to implement the state power to provide optimal conditions are: accelerator pedal position and engine load as well as energy supply and mix of commercial energy and electricity at any given time.

The two-cylinder TDI used in the mass production of technology: 0.8-liter TDI (35 kW/48 hp) came from the 1.6-liter TDI, which is to drive cars like the Golf and Passat. 0.8 TDI has the same information as the 1.6-liter TDI common-rail distance between the cylinders (88 mm) diameter cylinder (79.5 mm) and stroke (80.5 mm). In addition, the concept of a twin-cylinder Volkswagen XL1 and mass-produced four-cylinder engine uses an internal action to reduce emissions. They are particularly piston recesses multiple injections and single injection in the direction of individual projects. Excellent, good engines, common-rail operation was moved to a two-cylinder engine. In addition to the balance within the room that controls the speed of rotation of the engine, while optimizing the engine is running smooth.

Meanwhile, the aluminum of the TDI was built for rigidity and accuracy, which in turn leads to very low friction loss. With the aim of reducing emissions, recycling of exhaust gases and an oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter is used. Equipped in this way, the 0.8 TDI already complies with the limits of the Euro-6 emissions standard.

Designed for the efficiency of the cooling system of the car. Control only by activating the TDI engine externally cooled electric pump when the engine operating conditions so require. This includes the cooling system is automatically controlled air intake system for the front of the cooling system of the vehicle to reduce drag. This thermal management strategy will also help reduce fuel consumption. Another electric water pump, which is used only when necessary, around the bottom loop to cool the temperature of the coolant starter generator and power electronics.

CFRP body is a technical masterpiece

The development team made extraordinary progress in the design of the CFRP body - in the form of its lightweight construction and aerodynamics. A comparison with the Gulf illustrates how innovative body concept for the new XL1 is.

The drag coefficient of the Gulf of success is very good for the compact segment: CD (0312) x (2.22 m2 frontal area) is equal to a total of 0693 m2 trawl (Cd.A) offer this references benchmark car in its class aerodynamics. Meanwhile, Volkswagen XL1 overcomes this performance with a 0186 value of CD and frontal area of ​​1.50 m2. The product of these two parameters gives a total drag, or the value of 0277 m2 Cd.A which is 2.5 times less than the Golf.

Designing a new era is 3888 VW XL1 mm long, 1665 mm wide and only 1,156 mm high. These are extreme dimensions. The Polo has a similar length (3970 mm) and width (1682 m), but it is much higher (1462 mm). The height of the new XL1 is approximately the same as a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (1184 mm). So it is easy to see how such a wonderful Volkswagen seems on the road - long and wide as a polo, but with a lower profile than a Lamborghini.

The wing doors for the new Volkswagen XL1 is also reminiscent of a sports car luxury. They consist of two points: making the A-pillars and windshield just above the roof structure, not just appear, but slightly forward as well. The doors also extends far into the roof. Once opened, they release an abnormally high amount of input and output space.

Visually, the new XL1 also adopts a style of lines L1 introduced in 2009, but the new prototype has a more dynamic, thanks to its greater width. The design of the whole body was subjected to uncompromising laws of aerodynamics. Opposite, with VW XL1 concept of the greater width of the car, then shrinks back. Seen from above, resembles the type of XL1, a dolphin, especially at the back where the lines optimally in accordance with the airflow over the vehicle body to reduce the air resistance of Volkswagen.
In side profile, reflecting the style of roof lines that trace an arc of a pillar back to the rear. The rear wheels are fully covered to avoid air turbulence, air flows here are optimized for small spoilers front and rear wheels. Observers will look for Mirror vain; replace the wing doors are small cameras that take on the role of mirrors that transmit digital images of the environment behind the car for two screens inside the vehicle.

The front of the new Volkswagen Concept XL1 does not exhibit the typical radiator grille, but reflects the current style of 'design DNA' Volkswagen, of which most of the horizontal line. In particular, a black cross-track (an area where no grid), which combines energy-efficient dual-LED lights form a continuous band. The air intake for cooling the actual design of the TDI engine, battery and interior is in the lower front section and an electronic control of the Louvre. Sideindicators Strait is also designed for LED technology, these are the bow "L" shaped wheel vertical and the horizontal line under the headlights. This will create a front-end, which - although it has been completely renovated, and its extreme dimensions - can be immediately recognized in the design of Volkswagen's clean lines.

Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 [Reviews]








New Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 is the expected result of a car co-operation in recent times. Cosworth developed the first real road car since 1996, the latest limited edition Impreza offers fans the thrill of the car performance, combined with the exclusive right to life - the production is limited to 75 cars.

Listening-Cosworth, a turbo car is one of the most sedans acceleration. The familiar 2.5-liter engine turbocharged 'boxer' is converted to produce the force by 33 percent more than Cosworth relies heavily on extensive experience in Formula 1. The engine that drives all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, and boasts an impressive 400 hp and the new model reaches 62 km / h in just 3.7 seconds, going on to cover the quarter mile in 12, 75 seconds at a terminal velocity of 107 km / h. The maximum speed is limited to 155 mph.
Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 has a full range of components Cosworth designed engine, the turbo system, exhaust, suspension, brakes and wheels and subtle improvements to the exterior and interior style to create a truly pronounced high-performance hatchback car with everyday functionality.

Marketed only in the right hand drive form in the United Kingdom, the Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 is available in a choice of three exterior colors (Spark Silver, dark gray, and the San Remo Red), and is priced at £ 49 995 on -the-road.

The engine delivers 33 percent power hike

At the heart of the new Subaru Impreza Cosworth is a heavily revised version of the famous mark horizontally, on the contrary, all-aluminum boxer engine. "Flat-four 'power is disconnected from the machine, hand finished, and the number of internal components are replaced during good and associated articles, as defined by Cosworth.

As with all Impreza engine "Boxer", the apartment STI Cosworth with twin overhead camshafts per bank (DOHC) and Active Valve Control System (AVCS) variable valve timing of the supply and improve low-speed pulling power.

Focus on an update of the Cosworth engine was to keep the maintenance improvements of a simple, efficient and closer to the original design of equipment to ensure reliability and ease of a normal Subaru dealerships.

Internal improvements are high-performance pistons, which are manufactured using the same methods are used to create Cosworth Formula 1 pistons. Special features to reduce the accumulation of carbon to minimize friction and reduce weight.

Forged connecting rods are made of high strength 4340 (EN24) steel and special bearings Cosworth engine offers a unique combination of design, metallurgy and engineering. Heavy duty cylinder studs high performance head gaskets multi-layer and a high pressure pump is also equipped with oil.

The overall result is a huge increase in torque, the highest RPM range, and significantly improved in-gear acceleration. This makes the Impreza more adaptable and daily traffic, but also much sharper tool path.

New turbocharger and "breathe" exhaust systems

A new system design has a new Cosworth supercharger compressor and relief valve actuator to provide increased boost pressure and deliver more power.

A single exhaust system was developed to allow the engine to "breathe" more easily and release their full potential. Increased capacity of collectors and downpipes tubular diameter in order to accelerate the elimination of hot gases. The first catalyst is a non-restrictive design and exhausts to the exhaust note of a single tone.

After the update in-depth performance Cosworth, with a new computer map, the boxer engine in the CS400 produces 33 percent more horsepower (400 hp at 5,750 rpm vs. 300 hp at 6000 rpm for standard Subaru Impreza WRX STI) and 542 Nm of torque, while remaining within the limits of torque to the design capacity of the original transmission Impreza.

Manual transmission and all wheel drive

To handle the increase in power-tuned Cosworth engine, gearbox Subaru Impreza STI six-speed manual, which is synchronized carbon applied to the top three ratios and a short-range clutch to accelerate change.

It also updates the oil bath controlled the pressure plate, bearings and disc. The gearbox and final drive ratios are the same.

The Subaru Impreza Cosworth full-time four-wheel-drive front wheel drive and rear limited slip differentials, features a 50/50 front to rear torque distribution, as the default, however, the distribution of electronically torque is varied according to changing conditions. The multi-mode driver control center differential with viscous coupling senses which axle has the best grip and varies the split ratio in milliseconds to distribute torque accordingly, thus maximizing traction and minimize slippage.

Fine Suspension

Improve management of the Cosworth Subaru Impreza, steering feel and driver feedback - without compromising ride comfort - it was a priority for the development team.

Subaru have available the original suspension and main components, Cosworth and a team of engineers worked with Bilstein Eibach Chassis and technicians to design a tour package / handling / director, who was perfectly suited to the improved performance of the new model.

Eibach springs and Bilstein Special new inserts with unique features of depreciation, were made to the specifications of Cosworth. The ride height has been lowered 10 mm front.

The advantages of this reduction is twofold. First, there is a big improvement in ride quality in general, the Impreza's easy to live with day to day. Secondly, the limit behavior in more focused and serene. Improved damping means less pitch and roll when cornering at the corners, which means that drivers who wish may return to the office early and get the most out of the car Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive.

Update "racing" brake to improve braking power

To match the new Subaru Impreza Cosworth super pace, commissioned Cosworth to develop AP Racing front brakes more powerful. Larger diameter (355 mm) vented front discs have been adopted, with kettle-style racing with six-piston calipers in the personal operating larger brake pads.

The performance difference is immediately apparent. Harder pads to minimize the loss of color, which means that drivers can rely on AP plugs actually slow down time and time again.

The standard Subaru Impreza WRX STI rear brake discs, brake balance and all of the ABS home has been preserved.

"Stand-out" looks, plus new style wheels

The excellent performance of the Cosworth Subaru Impreza is reflected in its "stand-out appearance and standard xenon headlights.

Rolls-Royce Ghost [Reviews]


Rolls-Royce Ghost is the most powerful car that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has ever produced. However, Rolls-Royce power is delivered in a very different manner to other cars. It arrives in an elegant, cosseting way that some have described as being designed to lower the pulse, not raise it

The principle of simplicity extends to the act of driving Rolls-Royce Ghost. The host of complex engineering software and technologies beneath the surface serve to create driving easier and more enjoyable, not to intrude or confuse
Rolls-Royce Ghost is more driver-focused than any Rolls-Royce car before it. The driver sits in a slightly elevated position after the wheel, described as the authority position. This makes the view of the road much clearer. The fascia has been kept deliberately clear; it is spacious in design and has an intuitive layout. The controls are neatly sculpted, with the more important functions emphasised by accents of chrome. The soft light of the instrument panel glows through the familiar black-rimmed steering wheel, which in turn employs a number of violin keys as well as an ergonomic roller-ball control

The control centre display is concealed after a veneered panel until its services are called upon. All features such as satellite navigation, telephone, communication and entertainment functions are displayed here and managed via a central rotary controller, flanked by quick-access buttons on the front centre console

The optional driver assistance systems and technologies in Rolls-Royce Ghost are notable for their discretion and ease of operation. From the moment the driver approaches the car, optional Comfort Entry allows simpleaccess, unlocking the doors once the key fob is within 15. metres and the cool chromed handle is grasped.when you are in the car, voice control allows you to select from the control systems menus without using the central controller

For ease of manoeuvring, cameras located about the car serve a number of purposes. Rear, front side and top view cameras may combine to give a fish-eye view at blind junctions or provide ground images with obstacle recognition and reverse path prediction once parking

Positioned discreetly within the grille is a Night Vision camera. once activated, this safety feature works with Pedestrian Recognition to detect objects up to 300 metres away and display them on the central screen in the dash. The car's. control system receives infrared heat images from the camera and, taking into account the car's. speed and direction, classifies them to assess imminent danger. It then determines what action, if any, needs to be taken and if necessary displays a warning to the driver

The Head-up Display relays crucial information such as speed or navigation directions onto the windscreen directly in front of the driver. This information is visible only to the driver and may be tailored to show only the details required and at a position suitable to the driver
Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver should the car start to drift out of its current lane. once activated, it uses an integrated camera, located just in front of the rear view mirror, to monitor road markings and the vehicle's. position. The driver is warned by a discreet vibration through the steering wheel. If the driver uses the directional indicators before and behind the lane change, the wheel will not vibrate

High Beam Assistance automatically manages the operation of dipped and main beam lights while driving at night. once activated, the same camera used by the Lane Departure Warning system monitors the light from any source at the front of the vehicle and automatically dips or raises the headlights accordingly. Adaptive, directional headlights also improve illumination of the road ahead and adapt to the road conditions, be they rain or fog or simply once the car is making a turn

Porsche 918 RSR (2011) [Reviews]


Dr. Ing. hc F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, continues to expand its operations and effective skills through intensive development in the field of hybrid technology. With the Porsche 918 RSR, a manufacturer of premium sport cars, has a high-end of 2010 a successful synthesis of hybrid concepts. The two-seater mid-engine coupe 918 RSR clearly shows what happens when the technology installed 911 GT3 R and the hybrid design of the 918 Spyder is transferred to a modern, innovative, super sports car.

With its highly efficient storage unit, the 911 GT3 R hybrid race car has proven to be a loving attention during the implementation of competition on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the race for the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) at Road Atlanta / USA. UU. and race in Zhuhai China ILMC. It has demonstrated its potential for massive performance in real conditions to compete against larger competitors. The 911 GT3 R hybrid, known internally as the "laboratory of the race" has exceeded the expectations of Porsche Motorsport. Competitiveness, high reliability and exemplary fuel efficiency combined with optimal performance underscores the idea that Porsche engineers basic power generation a more intelligent way. The 911 GT3 R Hybrid gets its extra power from its own dynamic of the vehicle during braking. Porsche is now the transplantation technology in the mid-engine coupe Porsche 918 RSR racing version 918 Spyder concept.
In the tradition established by the classic Porsche racing cars like the 908 long distance long story short (1969) and 917 short-tailed (1971), Porsche's designers have created a link to the post-modernist "form follows function "philosophy. The Porsche 918 RSR, flow lines "elegant is dominated by muscular wheel arches, air intake and a cabin chair similar dynamic. A fan wheel visible between the consumption of the ram air tube and a spoiler RS Spyder back the size and more emphasis on the role of the laboratory course. The new "blue liquid metal chrome" color that has been created especially for the sculpted forms, while the hybrid orange typical of Porsche brake calipers longitudinal stripes and admirable button ready.

The technology also dominates racing in the lightweight, carbon fiber reinforced plastic torsion (CFRP) monocoque. The V8 engine is a newly developed direct-injection engine of the successful RS Spyder race car and now has an output of 563 hp at exactly 10 300 / 918 rpm in the RSR. Electric motors of two front wheels 75 kilowatts each contribute a total of 150 kW maximum power drive exactly 767 hp. This extra power generated during braking is stored in battery optimization of the wheel.

The Porsche 918 RSR, the two electric motors provide the function of front axle torque vector variable torque distribution. This increases to greater agility and improves steering response. Mounted above the rear axle, the central engine is integrated with a racing transmission is also based on the RS Spyder racing car. This six-speed transmission takes constant with the trees and the gear tooth longitudinally mounted straight drive is operated by two shift paddles behind the wheel racing.

Functional equipment of the car emphasizes its motor sport purist. Whether it is characteristic that open the doors up and the vents in the roof, between the door wing, very fast to lock on the front and rear lids carbon fiber, two roof-mounted antennas to stand and radio telemetry, RS Spyder and small, side or front Flic air separator under the front lip or no profile racing slicks on 19 "wheels with central locking, the vehicle can be clearly recognized as an experimental laboratory Racing.

Unlike the 918 Spyder concept car no frills atmosphere dominated racing in the interior of the Porsche 918 RSR. The seat is molded brown leather mention the history of hot gentleman driver gear wheel racing and a display of leisure on the steering column in front of the screen provide the pilot information. Instead of the futuristic, ergonomic center console with advanced touch interface of the 918 Spyder concept car, the 918 RSR cockpit ventilated by a minimalist console with toggle switches. Instead of another seat, is the battery of the steering wheel to the right of the console.
This battery is an electric motor driving the rotor of which rotates at up to 36,000 rpm to store the rotational energy. Load occurs when two electric motors on the front axle to change their function during the braking process and act as generators. At the touch of a button, the pilot managed to capture the energy stored in the wheel and charged battery to use it for acceleration or passing maneuvers. The electromagnetic brake inertia in this case also issue up to 2 x 75 kW, corresponding to a total of 150 kilowatts from its kinetic energy to the two motors on the front axle.

This extra power is available in about eight seconds, when the system is fully charged. A successful 911 GT3 R Hybrid, this extra power can also be used to support consumption, depending on the situation of running, for example, delaying a pit stop or reduce the volume of fuel and vehicle weight.

The new Porsche 918 RSR Lab competition, the Porsche is now raising the concept of hybrid race, experimentally. In the 918 RSR, "intelligent performance Porsche" is research on methods to improve efficiency further intensified sustainable under the conditions of the track, lap times, pit stops and reliability - a trade Porsche, which was the demonstration its success for over 60 years.

Finally, since the number of 22, pays tribute to the anniversary of the victory. Back in the days when the victory at Le Mans, all is not yet fully routinely include the Porsche racing department, the pilots, Dr. Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep were the first to cross the finish line in 1971, the 24-hour classic . Course record set by the Porsche 917 coupe short tail - 5335.313 km (3315.21 kilometers) at an average speed of 222.304 km / h (138.13 mph) - do not stay undefeated forever, but exactly 39 years to 2010. At that time, 917 Martini colors have been tested and very ahead of its time: the magnesium chassis sets new standards in the space domain lightweight Porsche.
