zonda2spy6 597x376 I opener: AMG ends all speculations on Pagani C9s powerplant
Sometimes, you just have to nip expectations or speculations in the bud to tame people’s over-excitement down before they grow out of proportion. Otherwise, you’re going to have a lot of disappointed fans out there who’ll be less than interested in your new toys. That is why both Mercedes-Benz and Pagani decided to make it clear to everyone out there that no—the up-and-coming Pagani C9′s V12 engine will have absolutely nothing to do with the current V12 that’s rocking the SL65 AMG Black Series. Although it’s AMG that is solely responsible for developing the engine that’s going to rid each and everyone of the Pagani C9′s competition, the tuner was quite steadfast saying that the engine they’re working on was something borne out of a Mercedes engine, and not necessarily something similar.
To end all rumors, AMG says the V12 that resides under the Black Series’ hood is capable of 670hp and 730lb-ft. That motor is a hyped up version of the V12 that’s powering the base SL65 AMG. The engine that’s screaming from behind the C9′s cockpit? That’s not the same engine, or any derivative of the aforementioned engines whatsoever. It’s totally different, and that is where their statement ends? So we’re all pretty much left guessing what it really is. But does it really matter once you’re inside the C9?


Future Concept Vehicles
Iranian Engineer Designs Extreme off-road Mercedes Concept
Holy Crap this looks like a Mars Exploration Unit!

Siyamak Rouhi Dehkordi, a renowned engineer from Iran, has let his imagination loose and created a Mercedes-based Hexawheel concept. It is an extreme off-road automobile that a flexible frame and six wheels layout with Mercedes-Benz design.

The concept vehicle caters to the discerning needs of individuals who need to travel to extremely difficult conditions and treacherous terrains. There’s more to the concept than just an eccentric design. Hexawheel features a flexible frame that provides it with a massive 46 cm ground clearance enabling it to conquer large obstacles with ease.

Dehkordi’s vehicle shape reflects symmetrical angular shapes. Further, it uses a complex hydraulic system for vehicle operation which involves a diesel engine attached to a flexible hydraulic power transmission system.

The all-wheel drive concept has a total length of 4.8 m featuring two wheelbases with a length of 0.95 m each. Ironically, the extreme Hexawheel concept is inspired from the associated structure of an insect’s body. Yes, you read that right. Consequently, the vehicle’s weight can be evenly distributed among its three axles.

The creator, a 35 year old Mechanical Engineer, is an employee of the Iranian car company Saipa-Zamyad. This is not the first time he has come under limelight. Earlier in 2008, his Ferrari Zobin design was well received and was viewed more than 16,000 times online.

Corvette lovers roar into Atlantic City for Convention Center event

ATLANTIC CITY When John Casadia first laid eyes on a 1959 Corvette, he knew he had to have one. It only took him 45 years to get it.

“It was out of sight, of course, to a high school kid,” said Casadia,of Mayfair

Court in Vineland. “Then you go to college and you can’t afford it. Then you get married, and you can’t afford it. Then you get a house. ...

But when the former Vineland High School girls swim coach retired, it was time to’Vette up

I wanted one from this particular era,” Casadia said of his ’59 model. “I bought it sight unseen. I drove it for six months, then I started restoring it.”

To this day, he said, “I drive it all over. I even drove it here.”

Here, of course, was the second annual “Strictly Corvette” show at the Atlantic City Convention Center, where ’Vette lovers from across the country have come together to celebrate the legendary Chevrolet sports car in all its forms.

Even with that kind of requirement, there are about 200 vendors at this year’s show, including the Corvettes Unlimited

club from Vineland, sharing the 300,000 square feet of space with about 275 Corvettes.

 The Corvette has been with us for 50-plus years, making it the subject of an ongoing development program that few cars can match. Performance is formidable in the basic coupe, and improves with the new Grand Sportoption package. For the money, there is no better blend of style and speed.Base Price: $49,880 $107,830
