Mazda – Engineered to Celebrate Driving !!!

Every Mazda was was built with the goal of bringing joy to the people. They engineer a responsive drive that makes people feel connected. The safety technology gives even more confidence behind the wheel. 

Design

Each and every car in Mazda’s lineup is made to appeal to the senses, and design is the language used to communicate. The design philosophy of Mazda is KODO: “Soul of Motion”, which allows designers to imbue each model with its own personality while staying true to a unifying theme. The Process called “Exploratory Preparation” begins with human hands creating true art. 

Mazda uses more clay than any other carmaker. The Artisans shape the clay until the ideal lines reveal themselves and only then do they collaborate with digital modelers. This traditional/digital partnership takes the best of both worlds to create uniquely appealing designs. The color designer and master painter work together to make sure the designer’s color is translated perfectly onto the newly built cars. 

Interior Indulgence

The Expert fabricator like Koji Fijii who crafts it into a scale model and his goal is to create a model even “more perfect than the real car”. The designers take great pride in every aspect of an interior being intuitively placed and pleasing to the touch. An environment is created that encourages a bond between driver and car after countless sketches and revisions. 

Innovation

Mazda’s new technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. i-ACTIVSENSE is the moniker for Mazda’s suite of available advanced safety technologies. It uses milliwave radars and cameras to keep you in tune with your surroundings. 

The i-ACTIV AWD system delivers traction and confidence on every type of road surface and in every type of weather. the i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system converts kinetic energy into electricity as the car decelerates. It can then be used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system or any other electrical equipment. MAZDA CONNECT allows you to access the information you need and the entertainment you want.

Safety

Active Safety Technology helps the driver prevent accidents by supporting his or her ability to predict and avoid hazards through visual and auditory alerts. Pre-Collision Safety Technology helps reduce the severity of a collision when one becomes unavoidable. The passive Safety Technology includes the rigid SKYACTIV-Body with ring structure, seatbelt with pretensioner and load limiter, anti-intrusion brake pedal, SRS Airbag Systems, and more. 

The Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) reduces accidents and congestion by receiving and transmitting information about the location of pedestrians and other cars, then relaying it to drivers. Although it is not yet available, they continue to invest in this technology in the hope of one day making accidents a thing of the past.

2017 Kia K900 – Challenge the Luxury!!!

The 2017 Kia K900 is Kia’s first rear-drive full-size luxury sedan and, in size, it slots above the front-drive Cadenza and new-for-2018 Stinger.

Interior

The K900’s spacious interior provides abundant comforts—ranging from available heated and ventilated front and rear seats to available power-reclining rear seats with Air Cell Lumbar Support. From the 17-speaker surround sound Lexicon Logic 7 audio system created by GRAMMY Award-winning Harman, to the Dynamic Parking Guide System, to the hydrophobic glass that helps repel water, the K900 is packed with innovations designed to enhance your driving experience.

 A bright 9.2” screen makes it easy to use UVO, our voice-activated infotainment and telematics system. The available Surround View Monitor utilizes four externally mounted cameras to simultaneously provide real-time video of the K900’s surroundings and show an all-around, bird’s eye-like view on the 9.2” monitor. 

Design

The K900’s exterior design displays a certain amount of heft and maturity – it doesn’t attempt to appear windswept or sporty, aiming instead for a more conservative look. The Kia Design Team blended the features such as world-class wheelbase, prestige distance, sweeping shoulder line that gives the K900 its athletic bearing and confident stance. 

The available Dynamic Bending Light (DBL) works in conjunction with the full LED headlights to deliver a beam that adapts—depending on vehicle speed and turning angle. The smooth character line, extending from the front grille across the doors, highlights its elegance.

Comfort

The K900 delivers a quiet cabin and a smooth overall ride with foam-padded cabin for exceptional insulation, a high-strength steel structure and a fully-independent front and rear suspension. The available 16-way adjustable power driver’s seat with power lumbar support, a heated steering wheel and laminated the windshield and side windows to help ensure the quietest cabin possible. 

The Trimmed in soft Nappa leather and the available Power-Reclining Rear Seats recline at your whim. Also the Ventilated Rear Seats deliver a cushion of air for additional comfort you command. The full-length, tinted Panoramic Sunroof, framed by the available premium headliner, allows driver and passengers to experience soft natural light and a feeling of spaciousness. 

Performance 

Kia continues to offer the K900 in three trims with a choice of two engines such as a 311-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 and a 5.0-liter V8 that cranks out 420 horsepower. Fuel-economy figures stand at 15 mpg city, 23 highway, and 18 combined.

Safety

The 2017 K900 continues to offer full range of standard safety features, such as full-length side-curtain airbags, hill-start assist, and traction control. The Luxury V8 trim adds a surround-view monitor, while optional safety equipment includes a head-up display, advanced smart cruise control, and autonomous emergency braking. 


The available Blind-Spot Detection uses side mirror-mounted radar to help detect vehicles alongside and behind the K900. The Lane Departure Warning System uses a rear view mirror-mounted camera to read and help analyze the road ahead.

Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli Hypercar To Make Turin Debut

The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is a hypercar from Mazzanti. Mazzanti is already an established boutique supercar builder. With this Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli, they promise that it will have 1000hp of total output and all of that power will come from a heavily turbocharged V8 powerplant.

15 years ago Mazzanti started out in business and their new monstrous Millecavalli is based on a standard Evantra model. The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is hand-built to order and production limited to five examples a year. The standard car has 715hp on tap and is capable of going from 0-100km/h in 3 seconds.

mazzanti hyper car

However, with the help of incredible twin turbochargers, the Millecavalli will, according to company founder Luca Mazzanti, manage the 0-100km/h dash in just 2.7 seconds and will hit a top speed of 400km/h, that’s 250mph and into Bugatti — never mind Ferrari LaFerrari — territory.

“In order to create this extreme Hypercar, we applied technologies coming from motorsport that no one else has ever used on a street-legal car before,” said Luca Mazzanti.

These include larger inlets for cooling and a roof-mounted airscoop plus active aerodynamics to direct air over the rear wing.

In theory, it is not that difficult for a car to travel well in excess of 200mph, but getting a car to travel that fast while remaining stable and still feeling like a quality, premium product is no simple feat.

“When the performance is so important, nothing is left to chance, but each element is the result of the meticulous work of people with great expertise and a true passion,” said Mazzanti.

The company has revealed nothing regarding price tag of this hypercar but it is expected to cost over €1 million making it a direct competitor with Koenigsegg and Pagani. This car will be limited to just 25 completely hand-built examples.

The 2016 Turin motor show runs from June 8-12.

McLaren 675LT Spider Debuts

The sports car maker McLaren is introducing a new model in the 675LT range. This model will be called the 675LT Spider. The Spider is virtually almost identical to the coupe save for a three-piece retractable roof and unique color and wheel options. Like the coupe, McLaren will make only 500 copies of 675LT Spider.

McLaren 675LT
The Spider’s mighty 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine produces the same 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque as the coupe. It comes with some exciting updates like more efficient turbochargers, a new camshaft, lightweight connecting rods, revised exhaust manifolds and cylinder heads, and high-flow fuel system. In first gear, the traction control system limits torque to 443 lb-ft to improve acceleration and minimize wheel sleep. The McLaren 675LT Spider is just 0.2-second slower than the coupe and reaches 0-62 mph in only 2.9 seconds. The 675LT Spider has a weight of 2,800 pounds, which is about 88 pounds heavier than the coupe. The extra 88 pounds comes from the retractable top.
Though it is 88 pounds heavier than the coupe because of its fixed-roof sibling, the 675LT Spider is still about 220 pounds down from the McLaren 650S Spider. The 675LT Spider achieved this weight by using carbon fiber in a generous way. Carbon fiber can be found in 675LT Spider’s side skirts, front bumper, rear fenders, diffuser, rear deck, Longtail Airbrake, and more.
The 675LT Spider comes standard with 10-spoke, 19-inch forged alloy wheels. Two other wheel options are 5-spoke or 20-spoke design with liquid metal or diamond cut finishes. McLaren has removed the 35-pound air conditioning system from the 675LT Spider, but you can install it as a no-cost option.
The limited edition McLaren 675LT Spider is expected to arrive in U.S in summer 2016 and the priced around $373,000.
