2011 910HP KOENIGSEGG AGERA
The Agera is as wide in the front as in the rear of the car. This gives very good balance in the corners and gives a small turning circle as there is good space for the front wheels to turn within the wheel
Thanks to a large air filter, long intake runners and unique Agera, supercharger impellers, power is now 850 hp running on regular petrol and the maximum Torque of 920 nm is reached at 5000 rpm.
The electronically adjustable rear wing comes with auto setting or manual control, in order to have as little compromise as possible between low drag and down force, depending on situation and mood.
BMW MEGACITY VEHICLE TO BE REVEALED IN 2012 LONDON GAMES
According to reports, BMW’s under-development Megacity Vehicle (MCV), which was slated for commercial launch in 2013, is going to debut in near-production form one year earlier, at the 2012 Olympics Games taking place in London.
The Olympic Games is the most watched event on television, with huge audiences, making it an ideal platform to unveil a car that will revolutionize the way mainstream cars are engineered and built.
BMW is an official partner of the Games and is likely to use the event to showcase the MCV’s advanced technology and design. The MCV might also be used to ferry officials and players between the Games venues.
The rear-engine, rear-wheel drive electric car will have many of its components built from lightweight composite materials like reinforced carbon-fibre plastic to reduce weight and increase range. It’s expected to be smaller in size than the 1 Series, but slightly larger than the MINI Cooper, with a seating capacity of four.
The new Megacity Vehicle is expected to sport a 134 horsepower electric motor running on lithium-ion batteries and driving the rear axle. A range-extended version complete with a compact internal combustion engine acting as a generator will also likely be launched.
The zero-emission urban car will however go on sale only in 2013 and will be launched under a new ‘sub-division’ similar to BMW’s M performance division.
