Preview: Seegefrörne-Rally 2011


Hey Guys

Here's one Preview Picture of todays Seegefrörne in Meckenbeuren near Friedrichshafen, Germany.
I hope I can post soon some of my more than 500 pictures. Maybe tomorrow, but its not sure if I go to the Award ceremonie or not. If I dont go, I have time to edit the pictures. And If I go I take again tons of pictures and you'll have to wait longer for them. But in any case: definitely next week you'll see them! :)

I just edited two different pictures of the Austin Healey Sprite Mk1. I've also edited them in a bit different way - which one do you like more? The one on the top or the one under this?

Some not so usual Police cars

Hey Guys
I just found some nice versions of police cars. Would you like to be pursued up by one of them?

At the moment Opel thinks about using THIS version of the Ampera for emission free and nearly silent drives and observations in bigger cities in Germany.

Opel Ampera
Based on the Ford Taurus the "Inceptor" could be the follower of the "Crown Vics" in the US.
Ford Taurus
The "Tune it safe!" BMW to show you how to tune and customize your Car right. First introduced at the Essen Motor Show 2009.
Tune it safe! BMW
In 2006 they also customized a CLS "Tune it! Safe!"



The prototype of the X3, with lots of LED'S as light signals.


The Carbonmotors E7 as a competitor to the Ford Taurus "Inceptor" with suicide doors.

Pretty well known, the Italian Lamborghini Gallardo.

Car of the Week: McLaren Mercedes SLR


Hey Guys

Because it's my Birthday (yai, finally 18!) today I've chosen my favourite car for todays post: the McLaren Mercedes SLR :)

First some shots with 2 of my 4 SLR models (damn, where are the other ones :/) and later I gonna add some self-taken shots of SLR's.
Hope you like them! :)


Now something about the SLR
The SLR is a jointly production by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive. Up from 2003 they biult during their 7 years production time about 500 cars a year in Porthsmouth and in Woking, Surrey, England (McLarens Homebase). The base price was GB£295,337 (approx. US$450,000, €351,269, CHF 500,000 or C$ 499,999c. (2009) and made it (in 2008) to the ninth most expensive street legal car.
The letters SLR stand for Sport, Liht, Racing (or, in originally german meaning "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport").
From 0-100 kmh / 62 mph you need 3.2 seconds, from 0-200 kmh / 124 mph 9.6 seconds and from 0-300 kmh / 190 mph 24.8 seconds. With it's 626 HP you can reach a top speed of 334 kmh / 208 mph.

There are also some special editions of the SLR, like:
The 722 Edition with 650 HP and a top speed of 337 kmh / 209 mph. The name goes back to Sir Stirling Moss' starting number '722' at his participation at the 1955' Mille Miglia with a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. They did also some modifications to reduce some weight.

The Roadster were brought to the dealers in September 2007 with a price at about £350,000 ($534 485 U.S.). It has 617 HP and, with the roof retracted, you're able to understand conversations between the co-driver and yourself perfectly up to a speed of 200 kmh / 120 mph.

The Roadster 722 S was realeased in 2009 and they produced only 150 units of the 334 kmh / 208 mph as a limited edition.

The 722 GT is the 'Rece Version' of the 722, with a wider bodywork, a racing wing and diffuser and some more modifications. It was built since 2007.

The last project of the nice Collaboration between McLaren and Mercedes was the to 75 units limited edition, the Stirling Moss, named after Sir Stirling Moss in year 2009. It's only buyable for current SLR owners.
It's inspired by the, now classical, 300 SLR and has 640 HP with a top speed of 350 kmh / 220 mph.

Wednesday Event No. IV "Seegefrörne"



Hello People

seegefroerne

For not German-speaking people the name of this event maybe sounds a bit crazy or weird, but that doesnt matter! ;-)
The Seegefrörne is a Rally around the Lake of Constance, from the 25th - 27th February 2011. The inolved Countries are Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Statistics say the whole Lake of Constance freezes completely about every 70 years. Even Cars are able to drive on the ice, if its frozen in propably some decades again . .
And because of that historical event some organized this event. Oldimters around the Lake, while Winter!
In your heads are rumoring Sentences like "What? Oldtimers driven in winter?" or "Poor historical cars"? Maybe you're right, but isn't it fun also to drive with your open Cabriolet through a beautiful, winter, landscape? Or even every closed car is able to enjoy the 'Winterwonderland' around the lake!
Everyone's invited to take part, if youre car isnt older than 30 years!

If you wanted to participate, its alright too late,. The latest entry day was the 4th February, but youre of course invited to come to the official-stop-cities! You can see them in the Map below!
There Clubs organize (mine, too!) something to eat and some Tests the drivers have to pass.


Because I'm doing pictures for my Club I'll also will for here, and, of course, I'll try to upload them the same evening (26th, Saturday).


Hope you liked this post and don't forget to follow me on Facebook or with the 'Google Friend Connect' for not missing posts! :)

Nice G-Power Video!

Hey Guys!

Today while school some classmates reminded me on that Video and, of course, we watched it together. The funny thing about it was, there were no speakers in school and so my two classmates just synchronosized whats happening, and all was right!
So, it doesnt matter if you understand German or not, just watch at 4:00 (of cource also the whole vid) and you'll see a nice scene with a GT3 RS :)

Hope you like that Video (it's not owned by me!) and don't forget to become a fan on Facebook or Follow with the 'Google Friend Connect'

Car of the Week: Lamborghini Revénton



Hello People

Sorry for not posting the last days, but now I am back again with a new Car of the Week: the Lamborghini Reventon!

From 2008 - 2009 Lamborghini priduced just 20 of this V12 Monster in its hometown Santa' Agata Bolognese in Italy. Every car got a stamp between the driver's and the passender's seat with the serial number. The 21st model, 0/20, was produced for the Lamborghini museum.
This Million Dollar Baby (~US$1.31 million, or ~£840,000) can reach a maximum speed from up to 340 kmh (211.3 mph).
Like Lamborghinis tradition, also the Reventon is named after a fighting bull. The bull Revénton was killed in 1943. The name also means "explosion" or "he who seems to be about to burst".

Most of the mechanical elements were directly taken from the Murciélago LP640, the exterior was inspired by "the fastest airplanes". It was just one colour available: "mid opaque grey without the usual shine." A nice interior gadget is a "G-Force-Meter" which shows you the magnitude and direction of g-forces upon the car.

Number 1/20 was delivered to Lamborghini of Las Vegas in Nevada and Number 20/20 to Lamborghini Houston, like two more cars.

Usinfg the engine from the Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, the Roadster version was born. Only 15 units for 1.100,00 € each.



Now some pictures (all were taken by myself): the real Reventon I've seen at the Klassikwelt Bodensee in 2009 ant the stand of Lamborghini St.Gallen and the small Reventon Roadster was shooten while baking a pizza :)

















Pictures taken by myself


Here's a fascinating Video about the Revénton Roadster: 






Wish you a great start of the new week!
