Car | Pontiac Solstice Car

WithPontiac Solstice the use of the top selling roadster in U.S. as the base this new coupe will surely capture peoples heart, introducing the Pontiac Solstice Coupe, the new coupe was similar to its concept that was shown at the North American International Auto Show in 2002. it looks like a modern supercars with classic lines in it, making it look very elegant, this car is suited for people who loves dramatic styling with fairly good performance.

supercarsThe Pontiac Solstice Coupe offers 2 level of powers, the base which is powered by a 2.4 liter Ecotec 4 cylinder engine that produces a 173 horsepower and claims this car can accelerate from a standpoint of 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds with either of its transmission, while on the on the other hand the GXP model is equipped with a Turbocharged 2.0 liter Ecotec engine that enables this car to burst a 260 horsepower and also claims to accelerate from 0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds they claim to have same results with automatic or a manual version of transmission.

For people who loves the breeze when driving, the Pontiac Solstice also offers this removable roof panel feature, in which it can fully open the cockpit just like a convertible, the removable panel is framed in lightweight magnesium and nicely done that weighs only 31 pounds, but the sad part is when it is removed it doesn't fit in the back of the car, so you'll have to leave it behind and because of that you'll be soaking wet when it rains,
but they have a solution for that, which they suggested for the buyer to install a soft top that does fit in Pontiac Solstice 's cargo area in disassembled form, to use it you'll need to assemble the 3 pieces together, which isn't that hard to do but who would want to do that specially when you're outdoor, and besides the soft top would cost another $1100, so my advice is... leave top on.

Exotic Car | Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Exotic Car

ThisFerrari 612 Scaglietti Ferrari model is not as popular as of the Enzo or the F series introducing the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Exotic car which was named after Sergio Scaglietti in honoring him for his stylish designs made in the past for Ferrari, this model offers a 2 door 4 seater layout, this exotic car isn't loved by everybody like the Enzo because of an unsatisfied design I guess which I find hard to believe, but no matter how much criticism this car gets you can never take away the comfort and convenient this car has to offer over the sportier type Ferrari's out there, supercarsFerrari 612 Scaglietti is the friendliest supercars Ferrari has to offer as of this moment, why? because Ferrari 612 Scaglietti has the room no other Ferrari model has, it probably is even roomier than some its competitors like the Aston Martin's DB9 which we consider the back seat as for design use only, this Ferrari's back seat can comfortably fit a fully grown 6 footer.

Well we should face it Ferrari 612 Scaglietti isn't the best sports car out there right, but I think this exotic car isn't made to be the best sports car but rather it's made to be an all around car of Ferrari, meaning you can have the looks the performance of a Ferrari sports car and get the comfort and convenience of a luxury car in one, which makes this model unique over the other Ferraris.

And just because its not the best sports car out there it doesn't mean you can easily blow by it, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is actually the second most powerful Ferrari out there coming behind Enzo, this exotic car is powered by a 5.7 liter V12 engine that can produce a monsterous 540 horsepower @ 7250 rpm and a 434 lb ft. of torque @ 5250 rpm that is transmitted through an either 6 speed manual paddle shift gearbox or a 6 speed automatic gear shifting mode and with the use of the aluminum space frame and body which cuts down the weight. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti performs an excellent acceleration of 0 to 60mph in 4 seconds and can blast to a top speed of 199 mph before you even catch a breathe.

Exotic Car | Lamborghini Estoque Exotic Car

AtLamborghini Estoque the 2008 Paris Motor Show we saw a lot great cars there's a lot of unique concept cars but one of the exotic car that excites us the most is no other than the Lamborghini Estoque, which was designed and planned be launch in 2012 to join the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide in the so called all purpose sports car, or sports sedan, but of course they planned to be the best in that league and so that is why as of now the specs of this Estoque is still uncertain and still a lot of could be's, but Lamborghini is most certain that this exotic car would be more of a green friendly car and if they started the production, it would still take another 3 to 4 years to fully develop this Lamborghini Estoque,
supercarsAs the Lamborghini 's say this Estoque is not designed for top speed only, but rather it is about comfort, drivability, torque and speed all in one, several options are being considered to be their platform, either the Porsche Panamera's or Audi’s A7, as for the engine of Lamborghini Estoque we expect it to be from Gallardo's DOHC 5.2 liter 40 valve, V10 engine, that produces an estimated 560 horsepower with a 398 ln ft of torque, it would also consist of Gallardo 's All wheel drive system that allows Lamborghini Estoque to deliver at lower revolutions. The estimated Top speed of this exotic car is 200 mph, and could accelerate from a standpoint 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
As for design there is never a doubt in our bone that there would be anyone complaining about its design for Lamborghini is the company that produces really unique and fine designed supercars and they never did disappoint us even once, so as for Lamborghini Estoque, it's definitely going to stand tall exterior or interior.
Lamborghini plans to produce only 2,000 to 3,000 units of Estoque annually with only one powertrain and if the demand increases, Lamborghini will consider more different options.

Thissupercars is a great concept car that is yet to be release in mid 2009, the new 2010 Alfa Romeo Mito GTA, this is 3 door hatchback that was made to join in the market with the popular Mini Cooper which more likely will give the Cooper a hard time, from their previous model of Alfa Romeo Mito which was only powered with a 1.4 liter engine, this new model GTA will be powered by a turbocharged 1.7 liter engine, which they were able to squeeze out a powerful 240 horsepower, impressive judging by the numbers yet we still don't know the acceleration speed as of now, but with this given numbers we have right now, our prediction is that this Alfa Romeo Mito GTA will definitley be Alfa's main focus when it is released.

alfa romeo mito gtaThe stylish design of this car is obviously inspired by the 8C Competizione, from its front grill to its fender vents, its rear on the other hand is equipped with a unique large twin tailpipes that makes it look more sportier, other modifications made in this new Alfa Romeo Mito GTA other than its design is the new active suspensions, the D.N.A. and the light weight scheming technique which was always use to max out the true potential of a car.

The Active suspension of the Alfa Romeo Mito GTA features a real time adjustment of shock valving which helps prevent body rolls, and about the D.N.A. system Alfa GTA gives you an option to choose from either sports, normal or an all weather mode of adjustments, which the car auto adjusts the steering, traction control and stability in which it fits the situation.

About the Light Weight Scheme of the Alfa Romeo Mito GTA, has the same method as the other car companies did, which was making use of a lot of carbon fibers such as its tailgate spoiler, roof and door mirrors, and as for its chassis, suspensions and brakes are all made of Aluminum, which effectively cuts down the weight, and with this scheme combined with the newly improved engine, the 1742 cc of displacement was able to achieve a 240 horsepower.
