Ferrari Roller Coaster- Worlds fastest Roller Coaster in FERRARI WORLD

Theme park season is almost here, and if you look hard enough, your local park might be offering a sneak peek of the upcoming season any day now. No offense to Six Flags, but we’re thinking about planning something a little bigger for 2010. That’s why we are eager to see exactly what’s up with one of the world’s newest theme parks: Ferrari World. Sure, it doesn't yet have an official opening date and it’s a lot further away than Harry Potter’s new home, but driving a Ferrari around the United Arab Emirates sounds like a worthy alternative. Here are just a few things to look forward to when Ferrari World opens in Abu Dhabi later this year.

· GT Rollercoaster
This coaster will bring guests one step closer to actually driving a Ferrari as crazy and quickly as can be imagined. There’s two competing tracks, so you’ll be racing your buddies while sitting in something that resembles the latest in Italian super car design. The cars are replicas of a Ferrari F430 Spider, but they could definitely pass as the real thing if they had an engine. Designers have even included different launch sections which they hope will simulate real racing conditions, but you’ll probably just be trying to hold on as you reach speeds of about 60 mph.

· Yas Hotel
Any above average theme park needs an on-site hotel where visitors can rest up and recharge after a day in the parks. Ferrari World takes it to the next level with their Yas Hotel. It’s a 500-room hotel that surrounds one of the newest Formula 1 race tracks in the world. There’s loads of connectivity options, and they’ll even bring you an Xbox if you ask for one. If there’s a downside to this hotel, it might be that it is just too fancy. We’re not used to five-star lodging after a day of corn dogs and soda, but we’ll probably get used to it even if the place does look like a giant penis.

· F1 Rollercoaster
This thing is going to be the park’s biggest attraction, and that might be why they’re keeping things hush-hush for the time being. We do know that this is going to be the fastest coaster in the world, and it will claim this record by hitting speeds between 125 and 150 mph. We haven’t been able to find a guaranteed top speed, so don’t be surprised to see that things creep a little higher as we approach opening day.

· The Roof
In total there will be about twenty rides and attractions featured at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, all dedicated to everything racing and performance. There’s one of those drop towers to simulate extreme g-forces, but the one here will go over 100 ft in the air and will drop you back through the roof. The whole park is inside a 21-acre, Ferrari-red roof, and it's is topped with the largest Ferrari logo in the world—just so you know how to find it from the sky, we guess.

Another Big Launch for India Automobile Industry- Nissan Micro to be launched in India in July !

Japanese carmaker Nissan on Tuesday said it plans to sell 100,000 vehicles in India by 2013, for which it will launch nine models in the next two years, including the sedan version of its latest compact car Micra – slated to be available in the country by July.

In order to achieve the sales target the company will enhance its dealership network to 82 by 2013 from eight at present.

"Our target is to sell one lakh units in India by 2013," Nissan Motor India Pvt ltd MD and CEO Kiminobu Tokuyama said a day ahead of the inauguration of a manufacturing plant developed by the Renault-Nissan alliance.

On increasing the number of dealers, he said, "We will have 82 dealers by 2013 from 8 dealers currently."

The company, which sells only imported models like sedan Teana and SUV Xtrail in India, will launch nine models by 2012, of which five will be locally produced and four will be completely built unit (CBU) imports, he said.

"The second model in 2011 will be a sedan based on V- platform, on which Micra is built and the third will be a multipurpose vehicle on the same platform in 2012," he said.

Tokuyama said India will be a key export hub for Nissan, shipping both CBUs as well as parts.

"For CBUs, exports target is 110,000 units by 2011 to over 100 countries and it will rise further to 1.8 lakh units later on," he said, adding that the firm will also export components to its other plants in China, Thailand and Japan.

The Ultra Low-Cost Car "TATA NANO" No longer be 1 Lakh !

The One lakh car need not be One Lakh anymore. Yes, with the increase in steel prices as high as 25% in April 2009, 2% excise duty on cars, 2% price hike on tyres, and increasing labor costs, all are pricking the price tag of Nano.

Although, Tata was reluctant to announce the newer prices of Tata Nano, the situations around, obviously infers that except the lucky first 1,00,000 owners who booked Nano, attracted solely because of Tata and the 1,00,000 rupees price, all others who shall book later this year , might need to shell out an additional Rs.30,000, applicable for all the three,Base, CX and LX versions.

What Nano had done more than its boastful ultra low price is the platform it has created in global automobile industries for low cost middle-class targeted cars. A notable point at this juncture is that out of every 1000 people in India, less than 10 people have a four-wheeler, promising a fantastic future for small cars in home land.

Fireballs: The Best Possible Outcome When Straight-Piping A Lambo

It might look like something out of a Burnout video game but this is what happens when you slap custom-made straight pipes onto a Lamborghini Gallardo. The result: Belching blue fireballs. Our inner hoon couldn't be happier.

This is what Lamborghinis are supposed to be — flame-snorting, ridiculous, bombastic, outrageous machines worthy of the charging bull on the badge — machines that should be feared as much as respected. In fact, there's something very wrong about a Lamborghini not consumed with a desire to maim or incinerate its operator.

Click Next to learn more about this bumper-melting beast.

This work is the creation of Fluid MotorUnion, who designed a completely new straight-pipe exhaust system using computational fluid dynamics to optimize for back pressure, flow and system weight and then manufactured it in stainless steel.

Based on popular demand, here is a high-resolution, desktop worthy version of this image, hosted by the fine gentlemen at Fluid MotorUnion

At full chat, the dual tips will belch fireballs due to an unexpected quirk in the flow profile. They emerge with such explosive force as to produce a shockwave. Sweet.

[via 6SpeedOnline]

The stainless steel system develops an additional 30 HP over stock 25 lb-ft of additional torque. Those numbers are great, but shooting fire is totally worth the undoubtedly high price of entry.

[via 6SpeedOnline]

Since the car will live in the real world the system is fitted with vacuum and servo actuated valves from Hyperflow which mute the wild wail of the unrestricted F1 sound coming from the Lambo's V10. Here you can see the entire exhaust system with temporary vacuum lines running to the valves. At the flick of a switch or under agressive tip-in those valves open back up and attempt to set the world on fire.

A Million Dollar Announces Million Dollar Prize for Unintended Acceleration Research

Looking to make a million bucks? Well, all you have to do is figure out the root cause for unintended acceleration in vehicles. said that it is going to offer $1 million to whoever (or a group of people) can figure out once and for all what’s causing the unintended acceleration issues in Toyotaand other vehicles. Of course, you have to come up with a solution as well.

“We have heard compelling testimony from consumers. Many incidents are not fully addressed by recalls. NHTSA is responding to the challenge with more of what they have already done: additional investigations. Isn’t it time to try a different approach? We at think so,” commented CEO Jeremy Anwyl. is currently working on coming up with rules for a new prize in hopes to attracting the best thinkers in the world.

“‘Open source’ created a forum for great programmers to contribute in building great software. Let’s see if this kind of ‘crowd sourcing’ can work in the pressing area of automotive safety,” said Anwyl.

Most Awaited Car of the year- Volkswagen Polo to start from Rs. 4.34 lakh !

Volkswagen launched its premium hatchback Polo in India on Tuesday.

Bookings have opened and the deliveries would begin from March 8. The car will be made available by the 40 Volkswagen dealers in the country. The ex-showroom (New Delhi) price of a 1.2 litre petrol variant is Rs 4.34 lakh and the high-end diesel variant Rs 6.70 lakh.

Mr Neeraj Garg, Member of Board and Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said, “ It is for the first time that we are entering the volume segment and we hope that Polo will be the major growth driver for us. Our aim is to capture 8-10 per cent of the market in 3-4 years.”

The first Polo from VW's Chakan plant rolled out in December 2009. It was unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo in January. The annual production capacity at Chakan is 1,10,000 units.

Polo has added to the competition in the high-end compact segment which includes Hyundai i10, i20, Maruti Swift, A-Star and Ritz, apart from Fiat's Grande Punto and Skoda Fabia. This category is the fastest growing segment which grew 55 per cent at 2,25,000 units so far in this fiscal. “We think it will grow even faster. And, we will garner a fair share,” Mr Garg said.

Asked about production and sales targets for Polo, he said that the company's entire focus was on the domestic market and there would be no production constraints. “We will serve as much as the market can absorb.” The Polo is priced below the Skoda Fabia, a hatchback from Volkswagen's group company Skoda Auto India. The Fabia starts at Rs 4.92 lakh and goes up to Rs 7.71 lakh. There was speculation in the market as to whether the Polo would be positioned above or below the Fabia, as worldover the VW is a premium brand compared to the Skoda. Ford India will shortly launch its hatchback Figo, adding to competition in the segment, which will intensify further once Nissan launches its hatchback in May.

Volkswagen will launch a new sedan in the second half of the calendar year.
