Amazing Car Parking in Wolfburg

Visitors to the Autostadt in Wolsfburg (Germany) are now able to experience the CarTowers from the inside! A special glass, panorama lift takes six guests through the same procedure as one of the 800 cars stored in the CarTowers. The transparent cylindrical buildings rise 48 meters above the grounds. They work like giant vending machines. As a new car arrives from the Volkswagen factory, it’s transported by robot to an empty storage slot in one of the towers.

Ferrari F1 Busa Trike- Modified Hayabusa

There’s so many ways to make a custom vehicle. like this japan modificator who made a Ferrari F1 from his Suzuki Hayabusa Bike. His amazing tuning was shown on 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon Exhibition. This Ferrari F1 Busa Trike with a high spec really reminds us to the original ferrari f1 car. but this people made this awesome vehicle modification from his suzuki GSX 1300R hayabusa.
Some conversions are good, some are great and some stand apart because of the ingenuity and effort the creator has put into its making. Here is an embodiment, straight from Yokohama, Japan. A man has done an amazing conversion that even Ferrari can’t help but appreciate. This man took the Suzuki Hayabusa and converted it into an awesome Ferrari Trike. Christened as F1 Hayabusa Ferrari, the trike has been modeled to look alike Ferrari F1 car. Don’t forget to check our previous post about F1 Steering Wheel.
The sad fact, however, is it won’t ever enter into production as the Ferrari has appreciated the conversion and has no problem with fan owning one, but hasn’t allowed the creator to produce the copies of his this F1 Hayabusa Ferrari. Nevertheless, hit the jump to checkout images and watch a video.

Such an awesome tuning of Suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa into a Ferrari F1 Trike.

Designed by 21-year-old Yuhan Zhang, the Volkswagen Aqua Hovercraft

Designed by 21-year-old Yuhan Zhang, the Volkswagen Aqua is an all-terrain hovercraft with four little electric motorized fans that provide lift and thrust along with a hydrogen cell powered engine. The styling of the Volkswagen Aqua is extremely clean and simple. There’s very little clutter to the lines, except perhaps at the rear due to the quartet of fans. The interior has room for two people, and features a similar minimalist vibe as the exterior.

BMW's Dream come true on two wheels - K1300 R

The German manufacturers are all set to make the pulses of Indian consumers go racing – with the launch of their K 1300 R super-bike. The power of the engine has been pumped up, the looks have been touched up, and overall this version of the bike looks and feels a lot better than the predecessor. All that should, however, not matter to the Indian buyer, who will anyway get a taste of a beamer super-bike for the 1st time here.

The overall looks really get your attention, as you would expect from any super-bike. But, the thing that BMW has really excelled in, is the muscle power it seems to have added in the looks compartment of this particular R version. The K1300R rolls on a 1mm longer wheelbase than its predecessor due to the lower mounting point of the revised Duolever front end. It helps in saving 1kg of unsprung weight, but it transforms the wheel of the front end. Overall, it’s very well built, but it’s certainly not the prettiest. Just bold and raw muscle power.
With an upgraded engine producing 173bhp @ 9,250rpm you would expect this bike to be a beast on the road. And that’s exactly what it feels like, most times. The only question is, would an Indian buyer find enough good roads here to enjoy this power-house of a bike? BMW have done a cracking job of integrating great features from other bikes in the BMW range into this new machine. The quirky quick shifter first experienced on the HP2 Sport has found its way onto the accessory list for the K1300R and the S. It works in the same way, allowing the rider to change gear without full throttle or shutting off; just applying a little pressure to the lever is enough. The system worked best if you made the change deliberate but unhurried - not always easy to do at full throttle.
Even though you have to love and appreciate the engineering and quality that BMW has integrated in this bike, you are left wondering if it is worth your dough for Indian roads. If money is not an object, then it should not even matter. If it is, then you would be well advised to look for other options.

Some fact you never knew about Cars

Did you know:
It’s rumored the Chevy Nova sold poorly in Mexico because the word “Nova” is close to the Spanish phrase “doesn’t go.” Maybe it didn’t sell because it was a Chevy…or because it was Mexico.
Only FOUR automobiles were registered in the United States in 1895. I guess everybody had to learn to share!
Toll Booths on The Garden State Parkway in New Jersey were supposed to remain until initial construction was paid off, sometime back in the late 1950′s.
Over 90% of car owners admit to singing while behind the wheel.
The first speeding ticket was issued in 1902.
In 1960, you could purchase a brand new Buick La Sabre for under $3000. With that you basically got two-doors, a (manual) steering wheel and an engine.
Early Ford vehicles contained Dodge engines. Some 1980′s Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouths contain Mitsubishi Engines.
Mary Anderson patented the windshield wiper in 1905 after she noticed snow and rain gathering on the fronts of trolley cars and automobile windows.
In 1898, the New York City Police Department used bicycles to pursue speeding motorists.
Japan produced the most passenger vehicles/most total vehicles world wide in 2006.
The World’s Oldest Car was built in France in 1884 for French Count De Dion.
In 2009, New York and New Jersey were surveyed as having the Worst Drivers in America.

Hot Wheels breaks world record in Life-sized track

When I was my children’s age, I had some neighbors that had those orange flexible tracks for Hot Wheelscars. Try as I might, I never could get one of those cars to go through a loop.

Clearly, I am not the person who planned this jump from Team Hot Wheels. You can watch a video of it after the jump, and see the longest jump by a four-wheeled vehicle on May 29th, 2011 at the Indianapolis 500.
I’m not certain, but it sounds as if this life-sized Hot Wheels vehicle has no engine. I guess they must have just got some giant hand to push it up the ramp before they pushed it down.
The driver is an X-Games veteran and stunt driver Tanner Foust, and the track is a 10-story drop. It went about 332 feet, and I would imagine it would not have gone that far if it had an engine weighing it down.
You will note that the landing look a little rough, and the video editing didn’t really help to see how it worked. Hopefully, the driver was well protected.
Man, if Hot Wheels had a theme park, I would ride this ride. Actually, I would probably chicken out once they got me to the top.

Another luxury car coming soon in India- Audi A3 Saloon

Audi has finally confirmed plans of the Audi A3 sedan for India. The concept A3 sedan was first showcased at the Geneva Motor show earlier this year. There has had been a lot of talk about the car coming to India since its first unveiling and now we can confirm, thanks to Autocar, that the new entry-level sedan from Audi will in fact arrive on Indian shores. Audi India’s boss, Michael Perschke said this one the sidelines of the launch of the new Audi A8 W12
The new Audi A3 saloon will one of the products that the company will be launching in India in the entry level premium segment of the market. The Audi Q3 crossover is the other product in this segment that is aimed to rival the BMW X1. According to previous reports, the new Audi A3 sedan could be priced around Rs 20 lakh making it quite an attractive prospect. However, the launch of the Audi Q3 could precede the A3 sedan, we suspect.

The styling as seen on the concept is typical Audi with the huge Audi corporate grille dominating the front. Headlights are similar to those on the new Audi A6 which will be launched in India on August 3rd. The A3 sedan is based on Volkswagen’s new MQB platform and to put things into perspective, the new Audi A3 sedan is 188 mm shorter than the Volkswagen Jetta and 260 mm shorter than the Audi A4.
As far as engines are concerned the 2.0 litre TDI could soon become the best seller once the car is launched. A more powerful engine with Audi’s patent Quattro four-wheel drive system could also be on offer. The announcement from Audi comes as the triad of premium German automakers in India plan to enter the high volumes, entry level premium segment. BMW will be coming with the 1 Series while, Mercedes Benz is preparing the GLC crossover for India.

Toyota to get top position in world's 'greenest brand'

Toyota has been named the greenest brand in the world in a new ranking by branding experts Interbrand.

The Japanese automaker managed top spot above other global conglomerates such as Siemens, Dell  and Johnson & Johnson, although fellow automakers Volkswagen and Honda also made the top ten list.
Interbrand said that Toyota, which makes the best-selling Prius hybrid, "is a leading example of making the environment a core management priority, while also engaging in a meaningful way with audiences around the world."
Volkswagen also won praise for its 'Think Blue' advertising campaign, green factories and car-sharing initiatives, while Honda was recognized for its green history.
Just outside the top ten was Hyundai in 11th place, BMW in 12th, Mercedes-Benz in 16th and Ford, in 20th place.
Curiously, electric car makers such as Nissan, Mitsubishi and Chevrolet all failed to score a place in the top 50, suggesting that consumers still aren't associating electric vehicles with the "greenness" of a brand.
"As corporate citizenship increasingly becomes the norm, green initiatives may be among the most visible and easiest to claim and yet, can be the most challenging to deliver performance against,” said Interbrand's Jez Frampton.
The survey was conducted among consumers in US, Japan, China, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Brazil, Spain, and India.
