Peugeot 308 GTi (2016) at the IAA: The GTi is much stronger and more expensive than the Golf

Peugeot shows a new hot-hatchback with the 308 GTi at the IAA in Frankfurt. The compact sports car makes with its 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine 272 hp - and is therefore quite unremarkable. But: A special equipment makes it particularly striking.

07/01/2015 Roman domes Powered by

What we have puzzled: Throttles Peugeot to secure the performance of their turbo engine from the RCZ R in the 308 GTi, the sports car a unique selling point? The clear answer is yes and no!

Peugeot 308 GTi (2016) in Germany particularly strong

They exist, the restricted version. It makes 250 hp, 22 less than the top model, the 308 GTi 270. However, this is not important to us: "The weaker version does not come to Germany," says Peugeot man Ulrich Bethscheider-Kieser talking with sports car. Good, because the strong variant has the advantage not only of something died eiger tern engine power.

But first, let's stay in the 1.6-liter engine. We know already from the RCZ R, and have it may already thoroughly enjoy. In the 308 GTi Peugeot still puts it two PS. And makes the compact becoming the most powerful production sports history. The maximum power of 272 hp is at 6,000 / min. on, the engine is roaring at 6,500 revolutions in the limiter. In not even 2,000 rpm the engine heaves 330 Nm of torque to the crankshaft, the power transmission takes place - always hand connected - to the front wheels.

Torsen limited-slip differential on the front axle

To implement the power not only in the longitudinal but also in lateral dynamics, a Torsen limited-slip differential arranges the distribution of power between the two front wheels. This, technically quite complicated measure, Peugeot Sport will eliminate the typical on front-wheel drive understeer when accelerating out of bends. The locking action is 37% when accelerating, braking 30%. 

The values ​​for the standard sprint to 100 km / h move with smooth six seconds at the level of the sports car. At 250 km / h sharp Peugeot 308 GTi is captured electronically. The enlarged brake system with four-piston front stops the pretty but unremarkable hot hatchback. He is painted in black and barely distinguishable from weaker GT-brother. Only the GTi sticker and the double-flow exhaust system indicate the power under the hood. But: A paint option is likely to bring the attention that he deserves the 308 GTi, namely the combination of red and black, as we already know it from the more compact 208 GTi.

The French make lightweight properly

Here, the Peugeot 308 GTi is not a bulky vehicle: With a length of 4.25 m, it is marginally shorter than a VW Golf GTI, but is associated with a slightly wider track strong on the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. And now beware: The Peugeot 308 GTi is a real lightweight! With 1,205 kilograms (without driver, full gas tank), he has the weight of the Golf GTI by more than 200 kilograms (Super Test Golf: 1,406 kg). On the similarly strong, 1,311 kilo Renault Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy Peugeot has still good two talents advantage - if you like to give the manufacturer faith. A first test will provide clarity, until then, we are impressed. 

The low weight is the result of consistent lightweight construction. So Peugeot philosophizes not for hours about spaceframe and Co., but is thought to easily. Various chassis parts are made of aluminum, so in about the transverse control arms on the front axle. Furthermore, the French manufacturer of Paris relies on the use of high strength steel. This material is characterized in that it is a result of admixtures of elements such as vanadium or titanium by a multiple solid. Characterized the thickness of the steel parts can be reduced - without any loss of safety for the occupants.

Peugeot 308 GTi from 34,950 euros

Driver and front passenger, meanwhile, look to a reduced, minimalistic, stylish interior. Many buttons, toggle and rotary switches? None. All essential features were - integrated into the touch screen, which was planted in the center console, between the ventilation outlets - as in normal 308er.  

Also anything but ordinary: the small steering wheel and instruments overlying with counter scales for speed and engine speed. Almost like Aston Martin. Much lower than the elegant British the Peugeot 308 GTi is both the price and the consumption. 100 kilometers of the 1.6-liter turbo will consume only 6.0 liters of premium petrol, at least in the laboratory. In reality, this value is expected to be around eight to nine liters.  

For their 308 GTi the French call a base price of 34,950 euros. He falls more expensive than the VW Golf GTI with Performance Package. This GTI will cost at least 30,400 euros with us. The Peugeot 308 GTi can be ordered now and available from November, 2015.

Audi studies, concept cars, concept cars: All studies from the Avus to Steppenwolf

Audi has presented sensational trials on many fairs. In addition to spectacular superbikes with over 500 horsepower compact cars, luxury vans and SUVs are wild regularly. Some have already gone into production. Others are sure to follow soon. Follow us on a journey with many surprises.

But not only fast and high the Ingolstadt can. Another highlight was certainly the Audi Avantissimo at the IAA 2001, which showed a luxury station wagon with a twin-turbo V8 and 430 hp. Even then it was clear, although the study received much attention, mass production will not give it.

Viper ACR-record attempt at the Nurburgring: crowdfunding team fails at the 7-minute barrier

The Nurburgring record attempt of privately financed Viper ACR team has failed. Faster than 7: 01.3 minutes made it none of the drivers at the Nordschleife of the ring. In the end, the team can still be proud of yourself!

09/06/2017 Roman cathedral, Andreas Haupt 11 comments Powered by

Whether Russ Oasis is disappointed? Maybe a little, after all, it was his idea to send the Dodge Viper ACR on its final mission: The record for street-legal vehicles on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring should be cracked. A unique project, for the record attempt was crowd funded by donations from Viper fans and Nürburgring freaks. No manufacturer, neither Dodge nor FCA, was behind it. Only Kumho sponsored the tires.

Lance David Arnold goes almost under the seven-minute limit

In the end it did not work: Replacement drivers Lance David Arnold, who stepped in for the active in the VLN Luca Stolz and Dominik Farnbacher, punched in his fifth round a 7: 01.3 minutes in the asphalt of the "Green Hell". Anyone looking at the round can immediately see that there's a lot would have gone: Arnold connected a few times, true in some corners not perfect racing line and could here and there put something pace. "The Viper was also a full tank at this time."

"Everyone believed that the Viper ACR good for a 6: 55-minute round would be good enough," says Russ Oasis. And with each he does not mean any spectator, but its technicians and the drivers themselves, all three would have said. "The car is just amazing!"

Nevertheless, the lap time of 7 may: impressive 01.3 minutes well. That, after all, is No. 3 in the all-time list of the Nordschleife heroes. The ACR is therefore behind the Lamborghini Huracán (6:52 minutes) and the Porsche 918 Spyder (6:57 minutes). And unlike the Lambo and 918, the Viper ACR uses only rear-wheel drive and a manual transmission instead of four-wheel and dual clutch transmission.

And at the end falls but a ring record

Means that the Viper ACR has decided to go a record cracked, namely for rear-wheel-driven, manual transmission sports car. Our sport auto Supertester Christian Gebhardt had broken the record for this very sports car some time ago - with the Viper ACR is not dissimilar Corvette Z06 he clocked a 7:14 minutes.

Lance Arnold could have done faster - without a doubt. But it should not be. The Viper ACR already fought throughout the record attempt with tire problems - the Kumho V720 simply held not long enough. And at some point the consequences were clearly noticeable. At 220 km / h - in the middle of a curve - the left front tire burst Arnolds Viper. He brushed the Leitplante, then slid across the track to the other side, and crashed into the other guardrail. Luckily he was not injured. In sharp contrast to his service vehicle, which was heavily damaged. Shows an image must have been the impact as severe.

The blog "Nürburgring: Bridge to Gantry" brings it pretty much to the point: "You see this not as a Viper broken car, but as a hero with scars from his fight. A fallen champion, who has fought for thousands of fans around the world. Without factory support without automatic without questionable tires or turbos with more steam than specified. "

So long, Viper ACR!

Background: fundraiser for the Viper ACR

A group Viper fans tinkered over the last few months on relinquishing the legend once again to the Nordschleife. The original goal: the hardcore version of ACR (American Club Racer) should the Porsche 918 Spyder snatch the record of 6:57 minutes. The now others have done. The Lamborghini Huracán-performance roared in 6:52 minutes through the Green Hell. The electric runabout Nio EP9 should even have plunked down a lap time of 6:45 minutes.

Although the bar now so much higher, the fans have not let up. The Viper Club of America gathered on the Internet via a crowdfunding site money for the venture on the Nordschleife. It should be collected through donations 159,000 US dollars. With the money two Dodge Viper ACR are hauled across the Atlantic, paid the route rent and operating costs are amortized on site. A Texas Viper dealer had previously agreed to provide the two required ACR.

The fund raising has paid off: 378 Viper fans donated a total of 165,160 US dollars. This corresponds according to the current exchange rate around 147,000 euros. Power per head on average about 388 euros. Who for the planned trip to the Nordschleife, which was originally passed in April in the eye, but now to take place in July, paid 10,000 US dollars or more will be invited to the track.

Can the displacement giant with 8.4-liter V10 really set a new record? According to the latest improvements is hard to imagine. There is a reference. The 2010 model lapped with Dominik Farnbacher the dreaded Eifel track in 7: 12-13 minutes (article). The current Viper ACR with 654 hp and 814 Nm should already can undercut. Especially as the engineers put especially great resources in aerodynamics. With its wings work of the US sports car to nearly a metric ton of output at 285 km / h. 13 US routes, the Viper already holds records.

Either way: It would be a worthy farewell for the Viper. For the last ride on the Nordschleife Dominik Farnbacher and Luca Stolz were chosen. The Viper ACR comes with the "Extreme aerodynamics package" and will compete on Kumho semi-slicks in the dimensions 295/25 R 19 in front and 355/30 R19 rear.

In our photo show, we show you the Dodge Viper ACR.

Terrafugia TF-X: New dream of flying car

Terrafugia developed flying cars. Now, the inventors have presented their second project - the Terrafugia TF-X with four seats and a hybrid drive.

07/27/2015 Uli Baumann Powered by

Other than a few computer drawings and an animated video, there is nothing Habhaftes the new model. Configured is a four-seat model with foldable wings and rotors pivoting on the wing tips, and a propeller at the stern. In order for the TF-X should be able to takeoff and land vertically. For emergencies, the TF-X carries a parachute system on board.

Terrafugia TF-X Auto Flight
Terrafugia TF-X - the flying car 3:08 min.

Terrafugia TF-X flying in earlier than 8 years

the Terrafugia TF-X is driven by a hybrid engine. In the takeoff and landing phases are to drive the rotors for electric motors. In flight operations a Nitro takes over the drive of the rear propeller. the batteries can be charged from the power outlet or during flight operations by the combustor. The hinged on the roof wings can be folded down, the rotors then disappear into the vehicle flanks. The cruising speed in the air is said to be around 320 km / h, the range at 800 kilometers.

So far, there is the Terrafugia TF-X only as a 1: 10 model for testing in the wind tunnel. To series production about eight to 12 years old can go into the country according to the company.

ADAC krock Sida: krockkuddar skyddar inte

ADAC har studerat sidokollision. I många fall, sido krockkuddar ger inget skydd, de intagna slinka igenom bältet eller skadade ens varandra.

2016/09/27 Uli Baumann en Kommentar

Vid sidokollisioner till säkerhetsunderskott för den åkande på den motsatta sidan av effekterna show i de flesta fordon. Detta var resultatet nuvarande tester av ADAC. I sådana kollisioner är risken att föraren glider i sidled ut ur bältet vid kollision finns. De nuvarande krockkuddar är inte konstruerade för detta lastfall. Även om de utlöser, men erbjuder inget skydd. Konsekvenserna är svåra skador i huvudet - bröstet, höften och bäckenområdet genom att trycka inredning, dörrklädseln och sätesdelar - på grund av låga invändiga bredder främst ett problem med små bilar. I värsta fall, förare och framsätespassagerare även studsa tillsammans och skada varandra.

Förare och framsätespassagerare kan skada varandra

Utvärderingar av ADAC olycksforskning har visat att vid var tredje tung sidokollision olycka tar passagerarsidan plats. För närvarande är de säkerhetssystem som säkerhetsbälten och krockkuddar, men är främst inriktade på optimalt skydd i kraschar på förarsidan.

A crossover model, the elements of the Race Touareg with the line of a coupe combined. so does the future of the X-series?

BMW X9 futuristic crossover design

The classic BMW kidney, the restless front end feels any case, hardly committed. The profile in turn acts organic: The sides bulge out swinging on the wheel arches of BMW X9 and end in dashing rear wings, perched above the powerful exhaust system. The evil brother of the X6? Bruce Wayne would look the martial might like. But: Whether Batman would also order the roof rails from the BMW-shelf?

BMW X9 designer Khalfi Oussama despite the young age not unknown: the self-made man from Tunisia, BMW has imputed a new design language in the past. And the nameless, aggressive coupe that was it would redound to Batman Honor: Subtle stylistic devices are also misplaced.

Study is only the beginning of a young design career

Meanwhile, 18-year-old also has the design of Audi and Ferrari "revised" - because in the future he would like to design the flagships of European automobile companies. He has never set foot in a university by its own account. "I'm not rich in money, but in ideas." Technical details it contains the world so far in front of yet.
