Car | Honda S2000 Car

Onecar of the car I can say that is a collectors choice is the Honda S2000, not only because it's a tough roadster and has great aerodynamic design, well sure it doesn't look that great now because this design has already been standing ever since 1999, and to tell you the truth Honda S2000 still looks fairly good, good enough that they only maintained its design and the reason why Honda is so confident about this, is because they know that this car was well known as a "perfect roadster" in terms of looks and performance, so why change right.

But of course there's been a slight modification made for this 2009 Honda S2000 CR, as in "Club Racer" Honda made a special tweaks making this car become a true racing machine that won't back down in a competition, aside from making this car lighter Honda S2000 CR is also equipped with a firmer suspension and has a quicker steering ratios, they've also added a fully functional front and rear spoilers that is specially designed to get more grip on the roads.

Honda S2000 CR is a mid engine rear wheel drive designed car, that equips a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder 16 valve iVtec engine that produces a 237 hp @ 7800 rpm, and 157 lb ft @ 6800 rpm of torque and comes with a 6 speed manual transmission that enables this car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed 150 mph, totally not a bad deal for a roadster, and by the way this is one of those cars that is made to be modified, and with right kind of modifications made, this car could be even more awesome.

The Honda S2000 CR version comes without stereo, air condition and top because this model is made for race, so they took away the unnecessary racing equipments that could cause a heavier weight for this car.

Car | Nissan 370Z Car

If Nissan 370Zyou're wondering how the Nissan 370Z looks like, well you won't need to wonder anymore because we'll show you everything we'll even tell you how it feels like to drive this car on the road, The 2009 Nissan 370Z 's appearance was made similar to its predecessor the 350Z, almost the same shape, but they trimmed it in a little bit, Overall measurements show that they've trimmed down its size to approximately 3 inches shorter than the 350Z. They've even mix a bit of the GTR design on this Nissan 370Z and to tell you the truth I personally like the shorter length idea of Nissan but I really don't like the headlight design of this car I think 350Z 's headlight looks way better but I think that's the only edge the 350Z got over the 370Z , but even with an disappointing headlight design, overall this car still looks exoticly good.

Nissan 370Z the ride, this car is a sports coupe obviously with 2 front seats and a medium cargo space, as to its cockpit, the design is quite well, but the materials used in making it isn't that appealing as it suppose to be, it's almost the same as the 350Z 's a bit better though.but not enough to satisfy luxury sports lover, and aside from a unsatisfying cockpit this car also a problem with the loud road noise and drivetrain noise it produces, but to think Nissan's objective was to produce an ultimate weapon for race not a luxury sports car and that makes it acceptable, because in terms of power and performance, this Nissan 370Z is furious, as you may know this car is powered by a new 3.7 liter V6 engine that blast a 332 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 270 lb ft. at 5200 rpm of torque and comes with a 6 speed smooth shifting rev match transmission for a smoother downshift, or a 7 speed paddle shift automatic transmission that pushes this Nissan 370Z to a top speed of 155 mph and accelerates it from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and because its shorter and a bit wider than the 350Z, this car was able to handle itself pretty well even better than its predecessor.

New Car | BMW GINA New Car

Anew car futuristic car that has the weirdest and most stunning features made by BMW, this new car is known by the name BMW GINA which stands for "Geometry and Functions In 'N' Adaptions", it has a great design and great unique features, such as the shape changing feature which is one of the main features that really caught my attention on this new car BMW GINA.
Unlike normal cars which consist of elements like front apron, bonnet, side panels, doors, wheel arches, roof, trunk lid and rear deck BMW GINA replace this with a new structure components which is a Special fabric that is supported by a metal wire frame made specially for its shape changing purposes, this metal frames used in this new car are a high strength metal that is enhanced by carbon fiber struts that has a high flexibility rate, this Metal Wire Frame design was properly optimize for safety crash protections, so there should be no issues on BMW GINA's vulnerability.
The shape changing feature of BMW GINA uses an electro hydraulic control to move its substructures, using this the driver could change the shape of the outer skin to satisfy his own taste.
Imagine that its just like us, bones being wrapped by skins and the same concept has been used for this futuristic new car, very unique and intriguing indeed, but as for now BMW GINA is still a research model and still has no certain date of release nor will it ever be, so we'll have to Jack up our jaws as of now because this new car was made by BMW only to preview their new ideas.
