Future Cars - Camaro Concept


The Camaro concept made its first appearance at the 2006 North American International Auto Show, with styling that wowed the crowd and the styling will not change all that much when the car goes into production. The fifth generation Camaro will be based very closely on the concept, which is powered by a 400 horsepower aliminum small block LS2 V8, has a T56 six speed manual transmission and what GM says is a sophisticated chassis with four wheel independent suspension.

The engine is fitted with Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation technology to save fuel, enough says GM for the concept to get 30mpg or better.

While the concept does have four seats, the ones in the rear are for very short people only, as there’s not much room in there.

"Millions of people of all ages fell in love with the Camaro for all of the right reasons," said Ed Welburn, GM vice president, global design. "Camaros were beautiful to look at and offered performance that could rival expensive European GTs. Yet they were practical enough to drive every day and priced within the reach of many new car buyers."

And then, after the Camaro coupe came the convertible at the North American International Auto Show in 2007. The production convertible will follow the coupe, with an on-sale date in late 2009. This time the concept came in orange pearl paint, with gunmetal gray racing strips.

Tom Peters, General Motors' director of exterior design for rear-wheel-drive and performance vehicles, says they wanted to make the car stand out more: "We opted to go with bright metal accents, as opposed to satin finish, for things like the exhaust tips and fuel filler, and even the rear lights have a polished look. The wheels are different, too. We wanted to do an update of the redline tires from the 1960s, but instead of the red line going around the tire, it's actually on the wheels."

The changes to the concept are obviously around the rear end of the car. Even though the car is a concept it has been engineered to take a folding roof in the trunk. The windshield will be taller on the production version as well. The roof itself is not fitted, and there’s the possibility that a hard top folding roof may be on the production car.

And by the way, it seems that the story of Bob Lutz walking in on the team developing the Camaro concept when it was close to its completion and simply saying ‘no’ and then walking out again was slightly incorrect. It was actually General Motors' Chairman and CEO, Rick Wagoner who ordered a redesign at the last minute. Apparently the design was far too closely styled after classic Camaros.

Do you realize what Hermes is? can you realize what Hermes birkin bag is? This brand Hermes only suggests extravagance, design and elegance. Hermes bags are well-known for their awesome shape, bold color and exotic skins. Birkin and its sister Kelly are probably the most well-known bags by Hermes, which have huge amount of followers all near to the world.

Dating back again to 1981, the chief executive of Hermes Jean-Louis Dumas sat up coming to Jane Birkin over a airline from Paris to London. She just positioned her straw bag within overhead compartment of her seat, however the contents fell decrease toward ground, leaving her to scramble to replace the contents. Birkin explained to Monsieur Dumas that it experienced been difficult to discover a leather-based weekend bag she was fond of. Then in 1984, he designed a dark supple leather-based bag for herself, as well as the bag was dependent over a layout in 1892. She employed the bag for herself and later on altered her mind. However, the bag has turn out to be an icon granted that then.

Something one of a kind would make Hermes birkin bag a good offer more unique. Birkin bags are designed and marketed in different sizes. every individual amid the bags may maybe be made to purchase with different customers-chosen hides, colors, and hardware fixtures. there are numerous other confidential options, along the lines of diamond-encrusting, that is instead luxury.

hybrid cars-2014 Jag2014-jaguar-f-type-s-v-6uar F Type S V 6 is the best latest car 2015 you have been longing to have in your possession. Interestingly, it comes with either 19 inches or 20 inches wheels that give it that much needed balance.
