2010 300K GREEN GT PROTOTYPE
Taken from the Green GT Le Mans Prototype-style racer when it first surfaced back in the Spring of 2009. Now, with none less than the president of the FIA Jean Todt on hand, the team behind the green machine has just revealed a new updated version.
Slightly different from previous versions, including a much-improved paint scheme – is more power. The twin rear-mounted motors can now kick out a peak 408 horsepower (300 kW) which they calculate can push the car past 180 miles per hour (290 km/h). That’s a 50 percent improvement. Also offering software-controlled torque vectoring should help it wend its way around the bends with less fuss.
It now holds 31 kilowatt-hours within a more powerful, liquid-cooled battery that sits in a flameproof, crash-absorbing enclosure made from aerospace composites and equipped with a fire-suppression system.
While not expect to see this one-of-a-kind prototype in serious competition any time soon, it could easily serve as the blueprint for future track attackers.
2012 CHRYSLER 300
2012 Chrysler 300 sedan is expected to go on sale in the States around spring of 2011 also preparing its world premiere at next month’s Detroit Motor Show. Chrysler has yet to release official info on the redesigned 300, however, exterior out goes the bad boy / gangster look of the first generation model, and in comes a more elegant, almost Buick / Lincoln-like styling approach with far more softer lines and heaps of chrome trim.
Interior from the various shots that have made their way onto the internet (see here), the cabin appears to have been redesigned from the ground up, featuring a more luxurious and upscale, but somewhat conservative, appearance.
In terms of the powertrain is expected to be similar to its Dodge Charger twin, offering buyers the option of a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the 5.7-liter V8 Hemi, as well as the choice of rear- or all-wheel drive.
