Jaguar CXS Concept vs Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo

A few weeks ago, was released the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo. When I saw it, I thought, hummm, interesting... Not all the car, but the rear is very similar. Look the pictures, and judge yourself. (the Jaguar CXS Concept was my thesis project of the vehicle design master, and was published at Autopista car magazine, number 2792, 15 january 2013)

Audi R8

    The claim to make athleticism felt and seen.

Designing a really top-end sports car is one of the greatest challenges in car design. It is where technical precision and performance are stretched to the very limits of feasibility. In the new Audi R8 Coupé, our designers and developers have succeeded in creating a car which embodies our striving for automotive perfection and unusual design.

Ferrari 458 Italia

458 Italia

         The Ferrari 458 Italia continues to go from strength to strength and has garnered over 30 international awards in its short career. Yesterday, it added two further plaudits to that collection at the International Engine of the Year Awards when its V8 was voted “Best Performance Engine” and “Best Engine Above 4 Litres”.

High-performance ABS

Since the beginning of 2008 Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes have been standard on all Ferraris. The 458 Italia is no different and is equipped with 6-pot aluminium callipers with 398 x 223 x 36 mm discs at the front, and 4-pot aluminium callipers with 360 x 233 x 32 mm discs at the rear.

The 458 Italia boasts outstanding braking distances (100-0 km/h in 32.5 metres; 200- 0 km/h in 128 metres) thanks to the development and optimisation of the Bosch control logic and the evolution of Ferrari’s Pre-Fill logic, which reduces response times by activating the pistons in the callipers, thus minimising the gap between the brake pad and the disc as soon as the driver lifts off the accelerator. Similarly, these excellent results were achieved thanks to a specific calibration of the ABS for medium/high grip surfaces, and by integrating the ABS control logic with that of the E-Diff 3 to ensure a more accurate estimate of the vehicle speed and hence better braking torque control, as well as enhanced vehicle stability.
