Spy Shots: New Mercedes-Benz A25 AMG Could get More than 320-Horsepower

The people at AMG are hard at work with the development of the most potent model of the newly revealed Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback. Rumored to be named either the A 25 AMG or A 45 AMG, the hot hatch could make its world premiere as early as this fall at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

Power will come from a heavily modified version of the A 250's 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four, which is rated at 208hp (211PS). According to sources, in the AMG model, the four-cylinder unit is believed to deliver anywhere from 320hp to as much as 350-horsepower.

How to Destroy a Nissan 280ZX Cambodia Style

Classic Japanese sports models from the 1970s and 1980s are slowly but steadily gaining a strong following amongst auto enthusiasts and collectors alike, but not all people have the same feelings about these types of cars.

This owner of what appears to be an early 1980s Nissan 280ZX thought it would be a great idea to turn the Japanese sports coupe into something that resembles a cheesy arcade Ferrari simulator.

There is something very Crimsonesque about opener A Last Judgment: lots of tension, active guitar playing. The keyboards owe more to ELP, but the general outcome is one of tension, excitement with psychedelic overtones. Very good. This is in fact quite comparable to After Crying.
Very different is the extremely mellow, may I say cheesy, Romantic Rally. The bad thing is that the track is long as well. The song also has some more funky elements, but that certainly does not help. The guitar parts cropping up here and there are not bad, but not very distinctive either. Typical seventies jazzrock. A bit of Crimson comes up at the end (21st Century Schizoid Man).

Out Of 3-Dimension is a slow, somewhat ponderous piece with some lighter, dancing elements. This comes quite close to the old Camel. Plenty of melody and although quite mellow, the opening is quite atmospheric. The guitar playing reminds of Greece.

Mellow keyboards tinkle on Prayer, which has something of a Christmas atmosphere. The guitar lone and bluesy, and very melodic. There For that it is a bit too careful. But the semblance is there. All in all, a bit too obvious, although the guitar and keys can sound quite dissonant and wayward at times. The pace goes up a bit but it stays a bouncy affair. The keyboards sizzle towards the end.

Sweet Love is not bound to be a heavy track. In fact, we are back to how Prayer opened: melodic and mellow. The guitartist is good, especially during the softer slower parts where any error he makes will be plainly audible. But musically this is not my style. I am hoping for something a bit more proggy. A Tear Of Sphinx might be just that. At least, I have no reason to believe by the title that this is going to be a similar affair. There is an air of Middle Eastern mystery that pervades. Later the guitar cries out, but the music is again a bit too accessible for my tastes. There is a sense of urgency in the playing tho.

Tour Of The Deep Ocean is a long one. Almost 15 minutes in length, this is the epic track. Plenty of sad violin in the opening, slow and mysterious. Then the guitar comes in, Crimsonesque and all. Nice dark atmosphere and very good build up lead to sizzling keyboards. This is good stuff. A bit repetitive in places, but showing both melody, power and a bit of flashiness. However, it also includes some more introspective parts where the guitar cries out, quite lonely. Some of the melodies could come straight out of a Focus album. After this more accessible and melodic middle part, the repetitive drone of the beginning returns, getting the tension back into the song.

Jin.Zo-Ni.N.Gen is a title track of one of the bands albums. Do not ask me what it means. Again, this is one of the more rocky and off-beat tracks. The playing is a bit rough here. This one is similar in style to the previous song with strong sense of urgency and not without the necessary melody. Super Warp is the closer, more in the line of the usual jazzrock.

1. The Last Judgement 4:06
2. Romantic Rally 8:26
3. Out of Three-Dimension Space 8:34
4. Prayer 7:42
5. Sweet Love 6:39

Single Saudi Woman Offers N209 Million To Find Her Mr. Right

If you are looking for a rich wife, then read this story.

A Saudi woman is offering SR5 million (N209 million NAIRA) to get married — even if it is a Misyar marriage. (Misyar is a marriage contract where couples can live separately but get together regularly, often for sexual relations)

But wait. The woman has conditions which she will not reveal now. The main thing is that the new husband must “appreciate marriage life.”

The woman published the attractive offer in the Saudi Arabic language magazine Roa, which said applicants can write to it by e mail or fax. The announcement neither mentioned the woman’s name and age nor where she lives.
“Applicants should provide their contact number so the woman will contact them in case she agrees on the marriage,” the magazine said.

It quoted the woman as saying:”It does not matter whether the new husband is attracted to my money as the most important thing is that he must appreciate marriage life and marital duties…I am even ready to accept a Misyar marriage and pay him SRfive million at once…he will live with me in my villa and must accept all my conditions which I will reveal to him later.”

The magazine said the woman was married before but that she divorced her husband “was greedy and wanted only money.”

“I made the wrong choice first time….I want to make the right choice now…my main obsession now is to marry…I am desperate to marry,” the woman said.

I slept with our driver only 22 times, I did not know I was pregnant

Laugh wan kill me die oooo.....Now what should this be called??...You even know how many times you slept with him...hmmm..According to report,A Kuwaiti man put his Asian housemaid in the car and rushed her to the hospital after hearing her scream of pain in the stomach.
Doctors at the hospital in Kuwait City tried to assure the man his maid was not ill but pregnant. Instead of cheering, he was shocked, for the maid is not married.
When the angry man went to the maid on her hospital bed and asked her how, she replied that she had an affair with the family driver.
“I slept with him only 22 times and I did not know I was pregnant,” she told the man, who got a fresh shock.
 The man reported the maid and the Asian driver to the police.

Honda develops new CVT, available with Step WGN

The vehicle below will not make it's way to North America, however it's interesting to see what they are doing with the CVT....
Whether you are a fan or not, the CVT gearbox is here to stay. Point in case is the new CVT from Honda, which is part of their Earth Dreams Technology, specially developed for mid-sized Honda vehicles.

This new CVT features newly developed high-efficiency electric oil pump, high-strength belt and exclusive CVT oil raise transmission efficiency, which enhances fuel economy. It also features a wide ratio that gives more torque in the lower rpm range that translates to quick acceleration from standstill. In addition, the new CVT is equipped with the G-Design Shift that controls the gearing, throttle and hydraulic control to make the system respond quicker to driver input.

The take back from this new CVT is that it offers five percent better fuel economy than the conventional CVT, and 10 percent better than a traditional 5-speed automatic. The new CVT will not reach us yet. It is still new in Japan and will be first shoehorned into the Step WGN and Step WGN Spada.


Honda's Low Carbon Hatch and Smart Home

SMART HOME: All part of Honda's plan to monitor and ease a family's whole carbon footprint and not just that of their car. The Honda city electric vehicle shown could easily be an electric Jazz or a plug-in hybrid.

Japanese car maker Honda has been developing conventional plug-in and fuel-cell electric vehicles (EVs) for years. However, as well as merely swapping petrol power for electricity, Honda has also looked at how the power for its EVs is generated in the first place.

To demonstrate this, the company has even built a proposed future home to show how electric power for every part of a typical family's needs can impose less and less of an agenda on its neighbours and on the national power grid.

On the grounds of its Twin Ring Motegi racing and test track northeast of Tokyo, Honda has built what it calls its Smart Home, which is all part of a residential and transport management system that powers and manages the energy of the home. It represents the most effective way to live within one's energy means that I have seen.

The Smart Home's roof, on the southern, most effective sun-catching side in Japan, is covered with solar panels that replace the usual silicon-based photovoltaic setup with a copper, indium, gallium and selenium material.

Honda says its photovoltaic layer is one-80th the thickness of a typical monocrystaline silicon version, and while its overall energy conversion efficiency is just a little less than that of silicon, it converts more wavelengths of light into electricity.

The advantage of this is an ability to operate in low sunlight and shade more efficiently than conventional systems. Thus winter conditions are less of a problem.

A computer-controlled system, called the Smart E-Mix Manager, helps direct current into or out of all the devices that need it, to the most efficient end.

The Smart Home also includes a natural-gas, propane or even petrol-powered "cogeneration system" that uses a single- cylinder engine to produce 1kW of electricity and up to 2.5kW of recoverable heat energy for hot water and home heating.

A 2kW-hour lead-acid battery is also used to store surplus energy, and charge the electric vehicle.

The Smart Home is still in development and Honda intends to add additional features and amenities to it, such as independent electricity production in the event of a natural disaster.

Honda already has a system that uses solar cells of about the expanse of a typical garage roof to charge its new all-electric Jazz.

The system stores energy sufficiently well so that the car can be fully charged by morning, and if during the day, the charger is full any extra energy can be put into the national grid system and/ or directed back into the household.

The Jazz could have been designed from the start to use electric power, with its fuel tank mounted under the front seats and creating huge expanses of storage and passenger volume when compared with other B-segment hatchbacks.

The Jazz EV swaps its petrol engine for a 92kW electric motor, while the fuel tank is replaced with a lithium-ion battery that Honda says will give a range of about 190 kilometres. A special onboard charger setup allows the Jazz to reach a full charge in about three hours from a 240v system.

Slowing down and braking helps charge the car too, through the same regeneration methods already used by other electric car makers.

The battery cells and electric power unit dovetail elegantly with the car as a whole, although the battery pack does eliminate the under-squab flexibility of the Jazz's famous "magic" rear seat.

Also, changes had to be made to the car's rear suspension to accommodate its new method of propulsion.

This is no bad thing, as instead of the petrol car's fairly ordinary torsion-beam setup, it uses a more sophisticated multi-link arrangement.

As a result, the EV car rides so much better than the stock Jazz, and displays the kind of crisp turn-in and well-sorted body control that the petrol car cannot.

It is remarkably good fun, with a level of steering feeling - and not just for an electric system - that amazed me the moment I took the car through its first test-track corner.

Using a three-mode drive system, as in the CR-Z hybrid, the Jazz's throttle pedal can be primed to imbue three distinct responses from the almost silent drivetrain.

Sport allows the Jazz EV to launch off the line as if there's no tomorrow, along with a tell-tale yelp of briefly spinning rubber.

Switched into Econ mode, it's as if you've gone into slow motion by mistake. It probably preserves the battery a tad, and it offers slightly better range, so you may need to commute in this mode.

However, my favourite drive setting was Normal, which is quick enough for the Jazz to stay ahead of traffic, while showing a less alarming depletion of energy resources on the car's dash display graphic than the Sport setting does.

I have driven a few electric vehicles now - ground-up designs as well as factory and home-converted petrol cars - and while you could say the Jazz EV is one of the latter, albeit in a corporate kind of way, it is simply the most fun and convincing car of this type I've had my hands on.

True, they will have to do something about the car's range, and I will miss those clever theatre-like fold-up rear-seat squabs, but, my word, the car feels so right in every other area.

It's not beyond imagining a Jazz EV like this living with its family unit, say 50km or less from work.

It would have little effect on the grid or your power bill, but would provide as much fun or more than a conventional car, plus a pleasingly smug feeling that you won't be getting from our fossil- fuelled machines.

We won't be able to buy the Jazz EV just yet.

In Japan and in California, Oregon and some yet to be finalised East Coast states, about 1100 examples of the Jazz EV, which is also known as the Fit EV, will be available on lease for about $NZ480 a month.

That sounds like a lot for a small car, but this isn't just a small car. It proves that using electric cars can be fun and that you don't necessarily need forests of wind vanes and several flooded valleys to cope with charging them.


Toyota Brings in Security Guards to Personally Escort Sacked Workers in Australia

More than 200 workers Toyota workers at the firm's Altona plant in Melbourne, Australia, were in for a nasty surprise on Monday as the company went ahead with its original plan to axe 350 employees. The remaining workers will be sacked on Tuesday.

The announcement was made in January but up until today, nobody knew who was going to be sacked, despite repeated pleas from workers to end their torment. The company said that it axed the worst performing workers.

Both the workers and their union said they were extremely upset with the way Toyota handled the situation as the company brought in security guards to escort the employees in min-vans across the road to a special reception center to sack them.

The CB1000R uses a 998cc inline-four engine based on a previous generation CBR1000RR, but is tuned to produce more torque and horsepower in the midrange and bottom end-the perfect combination for a machine like this. The CB1000R's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) ensures crisp throttle response and both low- and high-rpm performance. In addition, there's no choke to mess with, and the CB1000R runs perfectly at all altitudes and temperatures, even on cold mornings.

RSC news from down under

Stew Ross sent me some pictures of his 90.
He's made some more progress, really like that pinstripe on the tank, makes me think about getting this tankshape for my RSC90, even though I was planning to make something like the later model tanks.

Note the RSC ignition cover

BMW R90/6 rebuild

It is comming together, thanks to my dad.
frame is newly painted, engine rebuilt with some high compression headgaskets and I'm still planning to put some other carbs on there.
Lightweight clutch and flywheel from the ->'81 beemers
Daytona sump to hold some extra oil, while still being able to use the center stand.

and then we put the tank and seat on, just to get the total picure of what it will look like.

For now with ducati fairing, stays will need to be built, but I'm looking for an MBV or Wüdo fairing, that will look better.
And it isn't ducati, as just about every big caferacer has a 900ss fairing.
