The most fiercest V12 engined supercar of Peugeot

~Technology Breakthrough~ One of the rarest supercars in history would be discussed today comes from one of the French car manufacturers, Peugeot. We'll go into details on examples of this particular supercar in a moment, but first, let's talk about the origins of the Peugeot 907 Concept.

The Peugeot 907 is a concept car built by Peugeot, and first revealed at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. The concept car was created by the company's head of styling Gérard Welter and designer Jean Christophe Bolle Reddat to celebrate the opening of the company's new design center in Vélizy and the closure of the forty year old design studio in La Garenne.

It was one of three concept cars unveiled by Peugeot at the show, alongside the Quark and 1007 RC. And the Fleet News described the concept car as "Peugeot's answer to the Ferrari 575M Maranello before it was unveiled in September 2004, where these two cars have the similar design, which is both have a long snout.

The car concept was never designed for mass production, but rather was intended to be a prototype featuring Peugeot's new design techniques.

The engine is mounted directly behind the front wheels, and side exhausts exit behind each of the front wheels. Unlike many concepts, the 907 can be driven like any other production car. Under the hood, two 3.0-liter V6 engines are combined together to form a V12 with a burst the power of 507 hp.
Then the monocoque body is made of carbon fiber and also uses four-wheel control arm suspension at all revolutions while a sequential shift transmission distributes power to the rear wheels. The windshield curves upward to form the roof, while the hood has see-through perspex inserts that reveal the engine's twelve intake trumpets. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FLEETNEWS | WIKIPEDIA | SUPERCARS | DRIVETRIBE ]

Seen Dodge Firearrow Concept series

Indeed, it has become an almost indisputable certainty if a neat fusion of style between America and Italy is capable of producing a series of beautiful and iconic cars. And Dodge Firearrow is one example.

These concept cars were designed in the early 1950s by the Chrysler Corp design chief in the time, Virgil Exner and built by Carrozzeria Ghia, a Turin-based renowned coachbuilder. And no half-hearted, these Dodge's concept cars were made serially ranging from the model I to IV. Now, let's us talking about those Firearrow concepts as follows;

1. Dodge Firearrow I
In 1953, the first Firearrow concept came out of Chrysler's advanced styling studio and was a dummy. Later, three Firearrows followed led to Dual Ghias. The Firearrow I was a true roadster and painted in Red and Gray, while the interior was yellow with maroon piping. Its wheels were full wheel covers and the bodyside molding wrapped all of the ways around the car and has dual headlights.

The Dodge Firearrow, a sleek, 34-inch-high sports roadster, is a new 'idea' car of the Dodge Division, hand-crafted by Ghia of Turin, Italy. At that time, William C. Newberg, president of Dodge, says that certain design features of the experimental body may well be reflected in future Dodge production models, but there are no present plans to produce the Firearrow.

The car is shown for the first time on November 12, 1953, at Chrysler Corporation's annual new car press party in Detroit. And today, it is on display at Petersen’s Museum although the seats are now brown.

2. Dodge Firearrow II
The second series of roadster-styled concept car of Dodge itself is built on a 119-inch chassis and equipped with a Red Ram Hemi (241 cubic inch engine) combined with a four-speed Gyro-Torque semi-automatic gearbox, so then the car is claimed to be capable of spewing power up to 150 horsepower.

It painted in yellow and looked a lot like Firearrow I, except the body side molding didn’t wrap around the car, chrome wire wheels replace the full hub caps, single headlights replaced the dual, and Firearrow I’s split bumper was changed.

But, it retained the two-seats behind the dashboard and striking frameless windshield when it appeared in 1954.

3. Dodge Firearrow III
In 1954, the two-seat Firearrow Sport Coupe appeared and proclaimed as the third series of the Dodge's models. As with the earlier roadster, the metallic blue coupe was essentially a 1954 Dodge.

Dual headlights returned and now flanked a concave grille cut with narrow verticals. It also featured with the crash protection front and rear was provided by modest bumperettes. A wraparound backlight gave the Sport Coupe a particularly rakish aspect.

The third in a series of four unique Firearrow concept cars made, it has been said that this concept car had the skillful blending of the best ideas from Europe and the American design studios of Virgil Exner and brought an entirely new kind of beauty with a look of poised power.

4. Dodge Firearrow IV
The fourth series of Firearrow convertible arrived late in 1954. Despite being the series' first four-seater model, it shared many styling cues with the previous Sport Coupe model, or can be said, it was basically a soft-top version of the coupe.

The Dodge Firearrow IV was the only road-legal concept car that was actually prepared to enter the production line and adorn many car shows in the United States in 1954. And if you look at the specifications, this concept is similar to the Firearrow II which was also designed by Exner and built-in Turin by Ghia on a 119-inch chassis by using the same drivetrain.

The concave grille returned, though it now carried a grid treatment instead of the coupe's slim verticals. As for the convertible's leather interior, as it was a diamond pattern done in hard-to-ignore black and white, it was definitely an acquired taste. Additional sizzle was provided by the car's bright red body.

Although the Firearrows never made it into production, no one would let them die. And recently (on April 2020), the Dodge car enthusiast actually has the opportunity to have the Dodge Firearrow II and IV concepts through Mecum Auction. *** [EKA[13072020] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSTYLING.RU | AUTOWEEK | SUPERCARS.NET]

The classic Isetta design back alive into a Microlino electric-powered vehicle

~Got A Spirit~ Dense cities, traffic jams, limited parking spaces sparked the idea of ​​the world's car manufacturers to create small cars. If we know city cars, then there's a Swiss auto manufacturer, Micro Mobility System AG. recently introduced an even tiny car which named the Microlino.
The Microlino 2.0 electric-powered 'bubble car' posed along with the Microletta, its three-wheeled sibling. (Picture from: Microlino-Car)
And if we look at the shape, it makes us to remind the figure of a classic tiny car called the Isetta. We will give a little information about the legendary classic tiny car. This tiny car is also commonly referred to as a “bubble car,” perhaps due to its small round shape resembling a soap bubble.
From the shape of the legendary Italian bubble car, BMW Isetta (in pictured is 1956 BMW Isetta Cabrio) then Micro Mobility System AG. was inspired to redesign a modern electric-powered vehicle named Microlino. (Picture from: Microcarmuseum)
If you are an automotive enthusiast, you may have heard of the tiny Isetta crowded milling around on the streets of the European cities in post-World War II. Well, that's a unique shaped tiny car with a door in front. Initially, the car is designed and made by the Italian firm of Iso SpA. in the 1952. And then, the legendary tiny car was produced under licensed by many brands worldwide, ranging from VELAM, De Carlo, Romi, up to BMW, and under the last manufacturer emblem made it known famous by the name of BMW Isetta.

From the shape of the legendary Italian bubble car, then Kusnacht-based auto company was inspired to redesign a modern electric-powered vehicle. The model was first introduced in 2015, and today  the development version under the name of Microlino 2.0 is being demonstrated for the first time. As we mentioned before, the car designs is based and inspired by the famous tiny car Isetta.
The Microlino 2.0 electric-powered 'bubble car' has thick retro impression, that can be seen from its classic rounded style in a more modern way. (Picture from: Carvagamza)
It could be said, not just inspired, but it looks almost the same in all angles, except the drivetrain. And the thick retro impression can be seen from its classic rounded style but is now packaged in a more modern way. The roof is made higher to increase headroom. The A-pillar is made longer to increase visibility. But the exact dimensions were not disclosed by the automaker, only mentioned that the car has a length of 2.4 meters, means it's more compact than a small MPV.
 
In addition to its small appearance, another uniqueness is the access to in-out of the cabin. Like the Isetta, the source of its inspiration, the Microlino also has only one door that is used as access for the driver and passenger which is placed in front. So the car's muzzle also functions as a door. So when the door is opened, the windshield and part of the A-pillar would be opened.
The Microlino 2.0's front also functions as a door. So when the door is opened, the windshield and part of the A-pillar would be opened. (Picture from: Carmudi)
For the exterior, the Swiss auto manufacturer makes it as simple as possible with The rear wheel tracks are made narrower than the front wheels. The car main accessories such the front and rear lights are in a straight line. Round mirrors blend with the headlights and rear fender that swallows a quarter of the wheel.

Well, when we look into the cabin, we will be surprised. Since the interior is almost empty and there is nothing, there are only a few digital devices and not many buttons. It seems that all the settings on this tiny car can be done through a single instrument panel display.

The rack steer stands independently without having to go through firewalls like a “normal” car and it can be folded for easy in or out passages. Then no infotainment system, big screen or anything. So in this car all those functions can be done by using the smartphone that has been provided with a special holder on the dashboard.

This Swiss automotive company said that the Microline 2.0 was developed from the previous version by changing the material from the chassis to iron and aluminum. The axles are widened to accommodate independent suspension at the front and rear. Its electric motor is claimed to be more powerful and efficient by around 15%, but there are no further details about the power and torque.
The rear wheel tracks of the Microlino 2.0 electric-powered are made narrower than the front wheels. (Picture from: Carvagamza)
This small car utilizes the NMC battery as its power supply which is said to be able to make it run up to 90 kph (very sufficient for city use). Furthermore, the automaker provides two battery options to drive the motor, namely 8 kWh or 14.4 kWh with a range of about 125 km and 200 km. By looking at the small battery capacity, it certainly makes it fully charged faster, and claimed that it only takes about 4 hours through a household power source.

Now for the price, the Microline 2.0 is priced starting at €12,000 (or approx Rp. 194 million), and we thought that's a quite expensive for a micro car. The Swiss manufacturer said that 17 thousand people already have ordered the car. Meanwhile for mass production, it would only start next year. We'll just have to wait...! 
The Microletta electric-powered three-wheeled vehicle concept is uses two 4,2 kWh batteries. (Picture from: Carvagamza)
Well, the Micro Mobility System also provides another vehicles called the Microletta. If the Microline is a four-wheeled vehicle, then this one is a three-wheeled vehicle with a retro style too. What's interesting, besides the shape is cute like a toy, the Microletta could be riden without the need for a driving license like a motorcycle in general.
This three-wheeled vehicle uses two batteries with a capacity of 4.2 kWh each, making it capable of running as far as 100 km. In fact, each battery can be removed and replaced with a fully charged battery if needed. It's just that the Microletta is still a concept vehicle and is in the finalization stage. If it is completed and produced later, the price is estimated to be around €4,900 (approx Rp. 79 million).
 
The emergence of various innovations and concepts of electric-powered vehicles, indicates the seriousness of the world's automotive industry in welcoming electrification. An inevitability that will happen soon, as the use of petrol and diesel engines will be reduced or even banned in the near future.😁 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MICROLINO-CAR | ]

Here's the almost forgotten Iso's unique GT car

~Nice blend~ Before the 2nd World War, Renzo Rivolta already had a successful fridge manufacturing business named Isothermos. And in the 1940s, the company's business sector turned to the production of scooters under the Iso brand. In the motorized vehicles production then developed into the production of the small-engined bubble car called Isetta in between 1953 and 1955 (although the production under licensed in other countries continued until 1964).
The Iso Grifo 90 was appeared with a sleek body lines and intended to mark the Iso's brand reviving in the 1991. (Picture from: OldCarConcept)
Although there is a delay in the production of the next car. It seems that the company has been steady in a four-wheeled vehicle production sector which at that time was producing very different cars named Iso Rivolta, which appeared as a rear-wheel drive salon, two-doors, four seats, is powered by the Chevrolet-owned V8 OHV engine with a capacity of 5,359 cc. The car was designed by Giotto Bizzarrini with a bodywork carried out by Carrozzeria Bertone and had been set to be a trend for the future of the ISO brand.
The Iso Grifo 90 is designed by Marcello Gandini with the chassis and powertrain developed by Gian Paolo Dellara. (Picture from: OldCarConcept)
Not long after, the company's factory based in Milan made the Grifo model, then the Fidia appeared in 1967. The last production car from Iso was the Lele. In 1966 Renzo Rivolta, the man behind the company passed away and his son Piero took the company's control.😭
The Iso Grifo 90 has certain changes to the interior so that the potential customers would feel like they were sitting in a very special car. (Picture from: OldCarConcept)
Entering the 1970s, the company made a bad move, when deciding to race in the Formula One with Frank Williams, it was an improper decision because carried out when the company's financial condition was not good due to the global situation at the time was in the middle of the oil crisis. The combination of these events caused the fall of the Iso brand in 1975.
The Iso Grifo 90 prototype is based on the Corvette C5 Z06 with the aluminium body was fitted to a tubular steel chassis frame, so it weighs only 1,200 kg. (Picture from: OldCarConcept)
In the late 80s, Piero Rivolta and Piero Sala thought the time was right to introduce the brand back into the market with a new GT. He contacted Gian Paolo Dallara to develop its chassis and powertrain and Marcello Gandini to design its outline, which clearly showed all the styling cues of the 90s. The model was named Iso Grifo 90. The prototype was presented to the press in 1991 and it was meant to be produced in a limited series starting from 1994.
The Iso Grifo 90 prototype is powered by a front mounted turbocharged 5.7-litre Chevrolet V8 engine (tuned by Callaway). (Picture from: OldCarConcept)
What was actually presented, though, only just a prototype, with neither an engine nor a normal interior. Not even the wheels on the car could spin. However, a lack of funds forced the automaker to suspend project development. 

Since then the car model hasn't been seen the daylight until in 2007, when the mock-up for the original model is found by Federico Bonomelli, the owner of the "Mako-Shark" multi material producer which also known as the Iso Rivolta collector and decided to produce the car. Together with his brother, he redesigned the car and got approval from Piero Rivolta to produce 12 units of the Iso Grifo 90.
Federico Bonomelli posed along with one of the classic and rare cars of his owned, the Iso Grifo 7Litri. (Picture from: AutoClassMagazine)
The new prototype is based on the Corvette C5 Z06 with the aluminium body was fitted to a tubular steel chassis frame, so it weighs only 1,200 kg. It powered by a front mounted turbocharged 5.7-litre Chevrolet V8 engine (tuned by Callaway) with 490 hp driving the rear wheels through a six-speed gearbox coupled with the Brembo's brake system and differential locking. The car was predicted to exceed 300 kph and need a mere 4.5 seconds to reach 100 kph.
The rolling prototype of the Iso Grifo 90 was completed in 2010. However, the economic crisis hit at the time, made the initial enthusiasm for the project had waned, so Federico Bonomelli decided not to build 12 cars of the rest. It seems that the Iso's modern GT car model is very unlucky, and had biggest problem is the unsuitable time.😐 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARTYPE | OLDCONCEPTCARS | AUTOCLASSMAGAZINE | CURVES-MAGAZIN | CALLAWAY | DYLER ]

Let's get to know one of the most hardest to tame wheely monsters

~Rest in Peace~ Might be those of You still remembered a tragic accident that claimed the lives of the famous Hollywood artist Paul Walker and his best friend Roger Rodas in November 2013 while driving with a German sports beast, the Porsche Carrera GT. The tragic accident also reminds us of how wild and ferocious the performance of the sports car made by the German manufacturer, Porsche in between 2004 to 2007.
The Porsche Carrera GT (in pictured with the color of Fayence Yellow) is one of those four-wheeled monsters that is wild and hard to tame. (Picture from: Reddit)
The car's ferocious performance cannot be separated from its early processes which originated of the Porsche 911 GT1 and Porsche LMP1-98 racing cars that's should be ended due to in part of the FIA and ACO rule changes in 1998. Then the Stuttgart-based manufacturer planned a new Le Mans racing car prototype for the 1999 seasons.
The Interior of the Porsche Carrera GT (in pictured under Custom White) is trimmed in a soft leather plus with the Bose audio system and a navigation system as the standard features. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
Initially, the car was intended to use a flat-6 engine equipped with a turbocharger, but it turned out that during its development Porsche changed the mind and redesigned the car so that it could be powered by a new V10 engine, this automatically caused the project completion time to be extended up to the 2000.
The Porsche Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 liter, V10 engine is capable spewed out the power of 604 hp. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
As qouted of Wikipedia, the V10 engine mentioned above was originally made secretly by Porsche for use on the Footwork's F-1 racing cars in 1992, but was later deferred. This engine was next planned for the Le Mans prototype and was increased in size to 5.7 liters. Once again in mid-1999, the project was canceled after the first car in testing for two days.
The Porsche Carrera GT is built based on carbon fibre monocoque and chassis. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
It could be happened, as some of Porsche's top brass are said to be more interested by doing the new Porsche Cayenne project which also involves the Volkswagen and Audi. Therefore the new SUV project required a lot of engineering experts, so having to take it from the company's racing division, which automatically caused the Le Mans racing car project to have to cease.
The Porsche Carrera GT (in pictured with the color of Guards Red) was shown for the first time to public at the 2000 Paris Motor Show, as an attempt to draw attention to the company's booth. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
However, there is another speculation regarding the discontinuation of the Porsche's new Le Mans racing car project, as the chairman of the Volkswagen Group at the time, Ferdinand Piëch prefers the Audi R8's Le Mans prototype to race in those world's famous endurance racing events, so he doesn't want the R8 to face with the Porsche's new racing cars on the tracks in the 2004 seasons. As we all know that both of the Porsche and Audi are subsidiaries of the Volkswagen Group.
The Porsche Carrera GT (in pictured with the color of Basalt Black) is produced by the Porsche's new plant in Leipzig in between 2004 to 2007. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
Meanwhile in part of Porsche's internal top brass wanted to keep the project still alive and carried on with its prototype version is powered by the 5.5-liter V10 engine. At the end, the Porsche Carrera GT concept car was shown at the 2000 Paris Motor Show, as an attempt to draw attention to the company's booth. It turns out in accordance to the initial plan, the newest Porsche concept car managed to attract many serious interests from the world's automotive enthusiasts who are willing to queue to have it.

The surprising interest on the Carrera GT concept car and the revenue influx generated by the new SUV of the Porsche Cayenne, helped the Stuttgart-based auto company's top brass decide to develop the Carrera GT road version sports beast, which would be produced in small quantities at the Porsche's new manufacturing facility in Leipzig.
The Porsche Carrera GT (in pictured with the color of GT Silver Metallic) is produced as many as 1,270 unit world wide and should be ceased due to changes in air bag regulations in the US. (Picture from: RMSothebys)
The Carrera GT sports car is powered by a 5.7 liter, V10 engine is capable spewed out the power of 604 hp, while its original concept car which had a 5.5 liter V10 engine had 550 hp. Then the engine power is used to drive the rear wheels which are channeled through the 6-speed manual transmission system. The gearbox is attached to a beechwood knob gear inspired by the one used in the Porsche 917 Le Mans racing car. In its second year of production, the carbon fiber ones are also provided.

Furthermore, the German's auto company is claimed the sports car can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.9 seconds before reached a top speed of 205 mph (330 kph), in fact in its road tests, that the car can be accelerated from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 mph (160 kph) in 6.8 seconds. In addition, the Carrera GT has large side inlets and air dams that help to cool its large V10 engine framed under the carbon fibre rear bonnet.

As for its brake systems, the sports car fitted with Porsche's latest Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite braking system, the 15-inch (380 mm) SGL Carbon disc brakes are fitted inside the 19 inch front and 20 inch rear 5-spoke alloy wheels. Similar to other Porsche models, such as the 911, the GT includes an electronically operated large-size rear wing which deploys while the car runs at speeds above 113 kph (70 mph). 

The Carrera GT sports cars have 5 basic color options for its sporty's exterior appearance, including the Guards Red, Fayence Yellow, Basalt Black, GT Silver Metallic and Seal Grey. Later, the German car manufacturer also provides custom colors to be applied to the sports car.

Then its interior is trimmed in a soft leather, then there's the Bose audio system and a navigation system were standard. In typical Porsche fashion, the ignition system is located to the left of the steering wheel. This placement dates back to the early days of Le Mans racing when drivers were required to make a running start, hop into their cars, started the cars and begin the race. The placement of the ignition key allows the driver to start the car in the left hand and put it into gear in the right hand.
The German's auto company began production of the Carrera GT in 2004, and sold it with a price tag of $448,000. The company's initial plans to produce as many as 1,500 units. But then in August 2005, the Stuttgart-based car manufacturer announced that its Carrera GT sporst car production only until 2006. 

This is due to changes in air bag regulations in the US and as of May 6, 2006, the German auto manufacturer has produced and sold of 1,270 units world wide. FYI, the first Carrera GT went on sale in the United States automotive market by January 31, 2004 with 604 units had been sold in the country.
 
What are the factors that making the Carrera GT sports car's performance such the untamed beast? 
Many competent parties in the world's automotive said, that the Porsche-made sports car is very agile and difficult to control while speeding on the streets with the characteristics of each unit being different from one another, so it requires special skills to tame it. Then another possibility is the lack of a traction control system that makes the Porsche sports car like the un-tamed monster. Even though this sports car should be equipped with a traction control system that functions to correct the tires so they don't get out of line. Do you have another ones? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | ID.MOTOR1 ]
