Lamborghini company prepares for a batch production an extreme roadster on the basis of flagman coupe Aventador. Italians yet do not speak about it directly, however their hints are difficult be not to understanding: Lambo brought to Geneva experimental spider Aventador J, pre-pre-series “Aventador” without a roof. Aventador J it is difficult to name the concept car because very soon we will see it on public roads, with 700-horse power motor V12, the robotized change speed gearbox from a coupe and an all-wheel drive. The carbon mono cock is changed: if on Aventador it consists of two parts – “cabins” and “roofs” which incorporate bolts and stick together, on a spider instead of a roof of steam massive carbon arches behind seats. It does not suffice only normal front and lateral glasses; there is no air conditioner and music systems.
But it is a lot of carbon: the front splitter and choke tubes are made of it, it is present on spokes of wheel disks. From carbon the framework of seats is executed, and in an interior the new material – Carbonskin in which carbon plastic threads are added by the rubber impregnation giving to a cloth softer and pleasant to the touch invoice is used.
And the most important thing, Lamborghini Aventador J … it will be sold right after the end of the Geneva showroom. Who becomes the buyer – is not specified. But to it certainly carries, after all the spider on base Aventador is only one car so far.
Serial Aventador without a roof, most likely, show in the autumn in Paris.

Magnificent clutch with road gives the chance for more dynamical driving, doing Rolls-Royce Ghost similar to a fantastic carpet-plane. It is the present Rolls-Royce for independent steering of the owner – from a driver’s place the fine kind on the cowl finished with silver, legendary figure Spirit of Ecstasy and road running forward opens.
Maserati Quattroporte is a song in metal, it is a masterpiece of the design thought which have created a unique business sedan, possessing all properties of a sport car. Maserati Quattroporte which are in one class from BMW 7 of a series, differs from it, as a prompt sea eagle from an eagle-heavyweight. And it thanks to the sports lines inherent in all cars of Maserati.

And switching of speeds at Quattroporte as at a racing car on a steering tube. The engine in volume of 4,2 l. And 8 cylinders located V-shapely, allows to accelerate momentum to 270 km/h. But it is base model. And here Maserati Quattroporte with a letter «S» already possesses “cursor” on 4,7 l and capacity in 430 h.p. But designers did not stop on the reached.
Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S novelty that is presented in Detroit in 2009, on 3 h.p. is more capacity, and the maximum speed of Maserati Quattroporte S – 285 km/h. Maserati Quattroporte S is the real dream of any judge of the Italian sport cars.

About sound insulation and convenience of interior of Maserati Quattroporte it is possible to compose legends. The powerful audio system allows to enjoy a sound, without disturbing associates. Climate Control and resetting of seats transform travel in Quattroporte into pleasure even if you will need to overcome half of Europe.

As it is found at manufacturers of limousines, the sedan “is stuffed” under the full program, and in the list of options some positions. The most interesting — separate rear armchairs with electric drives which can be established instead of a three-local seats. Interior quiet, executed English aristocratism, without hi-tech everyone there: 11 kinds of a skin, weight of a tree… It would be desirable to notice that in Continental Flying Spur it is equally cozy and it is spacious, especially amazes a space stock behind — and it at the car applying for a rank driver-s car!

Dynamics of this luxury car: 5 seconds to 100 km/h, the maximum speed — 305 km/h. The chassis all-wheel drive, with controllable redistribution of a twisting moment on wheels in real time. That is this sedan if something happens can force to capitulate sporty coupes from Porsche, Jaguar and Aston Martin.

New Aston Martin tries to combine a maximum of elegance and sporty. Virage Coupe should be something an average between Aston Martin DB9 and DBS. Powerful and aggressive DBS there was James Bond’s by car in 2006, in a film «Casino Royale». Specially firm color Casino Ice has been developed for it. The company exhausted such three hundred cars three of which broke on James Bond film series shootings.

It’s a highly technological car for complete control of a situation during any trip. New Ford Evos Concept was not limited to simple connection to a network the Internet, it went on much further in it. He knows the full information on the the owner. It scoops the information from social networks on which its owner usually hangs, therefore to it themes discussed there, for example about forthcoming trips where be are known. The gauge which defines pulse of the driver is built in sitting.
Evos Concept it is almost completely automated, he can warm up interior while its owner prepares to a trip, also itself counts a route on which it is necessary to go and it for the account of function of an operating schedule of a calendar. It lays a route of movement not simply a way, and considers factors of weather, plugs and a season, and also the navigator prompts the best ways of a bypass road of those places, on which at you an allergy. (Yes it can even it). There are also minuses in all this abundance of systems that is all on all the computer which follows established in it to the program, from for which can arise a number of disagreements for example: to you it is necessary urgently where that to go, and to you Evos does not allow from for yours for example sick heart. But that it is impossible to tell about its forms, it is obviously visible that surpassed all expectations in its beauty, beginning a bumper and big front with narrow headlights, and finishing roof bends finishing hatchback type, but nevertheless it is a sedan. With a high-grade back row of two separate seats, and one door inconveniently opening upwards on either side of. Why are not convenient? And you imagine if in the street a frost or unbeatable a heat. Interior in style of space vehicles in fantastic films with completely digital meter panel. And what for that absolutely unnecessary partition between seats the driver and an armchair of the front passenger. And in the rest all very much even is not bad. Will push this handsome man hybrid, 2 liters four cylinder petrol power unit. But in big parts it will be nevertheless an electro mobile on which engineers promise to squeeze out 800 kilometers a cruising range.
