The BMW i100: Curve Hugging Earth Loving

Posted by on Oct.11, 2012, under Concept Cars, Eco cars, Electric cars, Hybrids Comments Off on The BMW i100: Curve Hugging Earth Loving

BMW is not generally thought of as an “eco friendly” car. While their powerful sports sedan cars (most notably the M3 and M5) are certainly more polar bear friendly than a Ferrari or Lamborghini, they are nonetheless powered by thirsty engines that burn lots of gasoline even on city streets. However, BMW has slowly been shifting towards better fuel mileage by reducing the number of cylinders in their cars and by lightening the vehicles overall. Therefore it should be no surprise that they have secretly been working on a high-powered hybrid, the i100.

Ever since Audi won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with its diesel-electric prototype car, German engineers have decided that hybrid cars are the way of the future. With Porsche and Volkswagen unveiling hybrid hyper cars at autoshows in 2011 and 2012, it was only a matter of time until BMW put something into the fray. And now it has: the BMW i100.

While it may carry a 1-series designation, its sleek, aggressive styling is a far departure from the normally reserved “baby beemers” with which it shares a marque. The styling is intended to separate it from more traditional Japanese hybrids, which are known for their boxy shape and upright stance. It also stands out from them in terms of horsepower: the base model is expected to have 170 horsepower, which will allow the small car to out run and out accelerate the vast majority of hybrids on the market. 

And if that isn’t enough, an M-series version is planned. With a specialized six-cylinder diesel engine providing electrical power and a special capacitor system boosting the output, it is expected to be blisteringly fast. It is also clear that BMW has worked hard to make the car excellent in corners, as indicated by the low stance, and BMW’s extensive Nurburgring testing. 

Both the regular and M-series versions of the i100 are expected to go on sale sometime in 2013. With so much power under the hood, it is clear that these BMWs won’t be your grandmother’s friendly hybrid. Hybrids are now in the realm of sexy sports super cars, and it’s clear they won’t be looking back.

Trident Iceni great diesel car

Posted by on Aug.26, 2012, under Concept Cars, Eco cars, Futuristic models Comments Off on Trident Iceni great diesel car

The latest version of Trident says it’s using a 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel that combined with some undescribed system its calling Torque Multiplication that’s good for 430 hp and 950 ft.-lb. of torque; those with additional pounds at their feet can pay for upgrade to 660 hp and 1,050 ft.-lbs. In the base version, the Iceni can reach 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

By using a diesel, the Iceni GT can burn a variety of fuels, from regular diesel to used restaurant oils, and at cruising speed of 70 mph, can travel 2,000 miles on a tank of gas. If all these figures sound too good to be true, it’s because they are a bit; it’s not that diesel engines aren’t capable of fantastic performance, but that the technology for doing so usually takes more engineering than a handful of people can pull together. While Trident didn’t reveal much about the engine, General Motors builds a 6.6-liter diesel in its trucks good for 397 hp and 765 ft.-lbs.

Trident also didn’t release the weight of the Iceni, which should be a substantial disadvantage to any of its competitors. With the company taking orders next month and vowing production by the end of the year with a starting price of $119,000, we’ll see how sharp this Trident is soon. Source: Autos dot Yahoo dot com
