The New BMW M6 Coupe: One of the Most Beautiful Cars in the World With High Speed Engine Concept complimented with BMW Parts from Parts TrainWritten by Jenny McLane
The all new BMW M6 Coupe is most sophisticated and powerful 6 Series ever: five-liter engine capacity, 10 cylinders, 507 horsepower, 383 lb-ft maximum torque, and engine speed beyond 8,000 rpm limit.
The BMW M6 V-10 507 Hp Engine comes with all driving dynamics required for racetrack, while in terms of comfort and equipment it is simply ideal for all roads. Its chassis and suspension, elegant body in innovative lightweight technology, as well as wide range of luxury equipment and ten-cylinder high-speed engine gives car a dynamic and impressive performance.
BMW's high-speed engine concept allows an optimum gearbox and final drive transmission ratio in all cases, thus guaranteeing impressive thrust and momentum on road at all times. The engine control unit has ionic current technology serving to detect any tendency of engine to knock, misfire and suffer mis-combustion. This intelligent control unit is able to sense any tendency to knock via spark plug in each cylinder, checking correct ignition setting and recognizing any tendency to misfire and thus allowing engine to run as closely as possible to its theoretical limits, developing optimum power and performance in process.
Variable dual-VANOS camshaft control ensures an optimum cylinder charge cycle. This means even more performance, an improved torque curve, optimum responsiveness, lower fuel consumption, and emissions reduced to a minimum.
Audi 6, Named As the World Car of the Year, Offers World Class Parts at PartstrainWritten by Jenny McLane
Among list of thirty six new vehicles out of market before January 1, 2005 for at least five countries, on at least two continents, Audi 6 was named as World Car of Year for 2005. This was held during media preview for Canadian International Auto Show held last February 16, 2005 in Toronto. The decision came out from forty eight international automobile journalists representing sixteen countries that acted as jury. They use twenty separate parameters including acceleration, braking, vehicle dynamics, safety features, cargo, and off road capabilities. They then selected top 10 vehicles for final round of voting.
The final selection was rated on five key areas of importance to costumers: merit, value, safety and environmental responsibility, significance, and wow factor! - car's emotional appeal. The secret ballots were then collected and tabulated by KPMG, an international accounting firm. The World Car of Year programme is administered as a non-profit corporation with a Steering Committee of six journalists who oversee and monitor integrity of voting process. The Audi 6 surpasses Volvo S40-V50 and Porsche 911 in a close race to be declared as World Car of Year. "The concept of national borders is now almost non-existent in terms of where vehicles and their components are designed, engineered, developed, and built ... or where they are sold," said British automotive journalist, Graham Johnson, who is also a co-chair of award program. "Considering ever-increasing globalization of automotive industry," he added, "the concept of a World Car of Year award program was inevitable ... it is truly an idea whose time has come."
