Ford is unveiling an all-new Ford EcoSport 2013 for the Indian market. The Ford EcoSport features a conventional 1.0L EcoBoost engine with advanced turbocharging technology, direct injection, improved twin variable camshaft design and intelligent ancillaries to deliver performance that belies its small size.
2013 FORD ECO-SPORT
Despite its small capacity and proportions, the engine delivers power and performance that will rival a traditional 1.6-litre petrol engine while emitting less than 140g/km CO2. It will have 120 PS of power and be mated to a five-speed manual transmission, giving the Ford EcoSport a footprint that is small enough for urban driving yet robust enough for a trip out of the city.
The new 1.0-litre is the latest addition to Ford’s global family of EcoBoost engines, which currently range in capacity from 1.6 to 3.5 litres. Downsized EcoBoost engines feature turbocharging, direct injection and other technologies and replace larger engines with no loss of performance and with lower fuel consumption. Ultimately, this all-new engine will be made available in Ford models in China, Europe, North America and other regions.
Developed at Ford’s Dunton Technical Centre in the U.K., this direct-injected EcoBoost engine features a new compact, high performance turbocharger design. The extremely fast response of the turbocharger and its ability to reach nearly 250,000 rpm results in virtually no turbo lag and peak torque of 170 Nm from 1,300-4,500 rpm.
The all-new EcoBoost engine also features an exhaust manifold cast into the cylinder head, which lowers the temperature of the exhaust gases and in turn enables the engine to run with the optimum fuel to air ratio across a wider rev band. An advanced “split cooling” system reduces fuel consumption by warming the engine more quickly and unique to the 1.0 engine cast iron has been selected for the block, reducing the amount of energy needed for warm-up by up to 50 percent compared with aluminium.
WHEELSANDMORE BENTLEY CONTINENTAL SUPERSPORT
With special sportcatalysts, the ecu upgrade and within a remote controlled valve flap system, Wheelsandmore were able to increase the power up to 702 bhp and 650 lb-ft of torque for the Bentley Continental Supersports.
With serial power about 630 hp the Bentley Continental Supersports already is the most powerful and fastest sports coupe ever built by Bentley. But Wheelsandmore thought of much more and developed an ecu upgrade, combined with a handmade, stainless steel exhaust system. With special sportcatalysts, the ecu upgrade and within a remote controlled valve flap system, they increased the power up to 702 bhp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
As the Bentley Supersports is not only coming with the biggest engine, but also with one of the biggest carbon-ceramic brakes, measuring 16.54 inches, Wheelsandmore got to use all their experience and know how to construct special wheels for perfect handling and outstanding visual appearance. The 3-piece lightweight wheel set is outfitted with C-Sport model sizing 10,5×21 with Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres front and rear, wearing an enormous 4,5 outisde lip in the rear. A special tyre approval allows a giant highspeed at 209 mph. In this case the wheels are painted completely matte black with a red racestripe, but wheelsandmore is able to offer unlimited colour and surface combinations.
Finally the suspension can be switched up and down by using an electronic lowering module from Wheelsandmore called LowMaXX, which lifts up the car automatically around 0.79 inches at a speed of 44 mph to recover comfort and safety.
