The first generation Volkswagen Polo had a sedan variant called the Derby and this tradition has continued even until the version before the recently unveiled new model, where the sedan version was called the Volkswagen Polo Classic. The Polo Classic is sold in countries like Brazil, South Africa, China and even Australia. Thus it would only make sense for the Polo Classic sedan to be updated following the release of the new Polo hatchback. Anyway the point of this post is the image above, Theophilus Chin’s artist’s impression of what a new Polo Classic sedan could look like. Not hard to make it look decent since the base car was already such a looker!

Lamborghini reveals the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce

Bologna-based sports car maker; Lamborghini has released the more powerful and lighter Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. As the name suggests, this latest Murcielago features a 670HP 60 degrees, longitudinally mounted 6.5 liter V12 power plant (dry sump lubrication) with 660Nm of torque that is able to catapult the “bull” to the 100 km/h mark in 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 342 km/h. The power plant with 12 cylinders, 48 valves and 8,000 eagerly awaiting revs is coupled with a 6 speed manual transmission.

Power is transmitted to all four wheel via Lamborghini’s permanent all wheel drive system to ensure effective traction and subsequently, excellent handling. The Murcielago is fitted with a double wishbone suspension system all round, with a lifting system that enables the front end of the car to be raised by 45 mm to ease garage entries and so on. Stopping power is provided by Carbon Ceramic (CCB) brakes with ABS.

These high performance brakes are nestled behind exclusive “Ares” alloy-forged wheels, bearing the exclusive five twin-spoke design and wrapped with high-grip Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The Italian sports car maker has also added a new exhaust system that, apart from the obvious help in terms of performance, it also offers a beautiful acoustic experience.

On the inside, Alcantara and carbon fiber make up most of the interior which is finished in, among others; light weight bucket seats as well as light weight cockpit and roof lining. Offered in a number of body colours including; Giallo Orion, Arancio Atlas, Bianco Isis, Grigio Telesto and Nero Aldebaran (with matt white and matt black offered as an option), the exterior is treated to a slightly modified front end with a matt black finish as well as slightly larger air intakes. The lower end of the side features air scoops for the oil cooler which are also finished in matt black.

The rear end is mostly taken up by a single flat and extremely wide exhaust tailpipe, a two-level diffuser system finished entirely in carbon fiber and a transparent engine cover. A larger, fixed carbon fiber wing mounted on two carbon-fiber brackets which help offer better aerodynamic grip at high speeds is also available as an option. Overall, the light weight construction utilized on the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce accounts for 100 kilograms in terms weight savings, over MurciƩlago LP 640.

Geneva 2009: Lamborghini reveals a new “bull”, the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce

Italian-based sports car maker Lamborghini has released the Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce at the Geneva Motor Show which is actually a more powerful, and lighter Murcielago. With 670HP and 660Nm of torque produced by its 6.5 liter V12 power plant, and with an overall weight that is 100 kilograms lighter than the Murcielago LP 640, it does not seem difficult for the LP 640-4 SuperVeloce to take the credit.

With certain design cues carried over from the Reventon, this all wheel drive super car with a two-level diffuser and a fixed carbon fiber rear wing looks the part as well. Other features include a lifting system which enables the front end of the car to be raised by 45 mm to ease garage entries, Carbon Ceramic (CCB) brakes with ABS and more.Read More
