KIA WILL REVEAL RIO SEDAN SOON
The new generation of the Rio was recently unveiled in hatchback form at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show earlier march. Kia will lift the covers off a sedan version of its new Rio series in a world premiere at the upcoming 2011 New York International Auto Show in mid-April.
The new Kia Rio hatchback has grown in size over its predecessor and, at least in Europe, it will also be offered in a sportier looking but less practical, three-door body style. The upcoming sedan model will most likely differ from the B-column and back, featuring a longer rear end with a more spacious boot.
While for European, Rio Hatch will be offered with a choice of three- and four-cylinder engines with outputs ranging from 70-to-109HP. No word yet on what type of engines will be available for the North American market model.
2011 FERRARI 599 GTB FIORANO
Tuning specialist Anderson Germany has some goods to offer with its new program for the Italian model, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. According on Anderson Germany’s list is the exterior that is finished in black with red pin stripes and matching alloy wheel designs. A new bodykit -again- from Hamann Motorsports is also part of the package.
2011 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano leaves the factory with a 6.0-liter V12 engine delivering 620 ponies and 608 Nm (448 lbft) of peak torque. A new sports exhaust system from Hamann adds an extra 30HP for a total output of 650-horsepower with Anderson Germany claiming that the increase helps improve the standard car’s 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 3.7 seconds, though the company did not release any numbers.
