2013 Porsche Sport Cars Prototype 918 Spyder



 2013 Porsche Sport Cars Prototype 918 Spyder
Porsche will offer one of the world's first plug-in electric supercars in 2013. With two electric engines and a V8 based of their RS Spyder Le Mans prototype. Porsche has confirmed that the project is going according to plan and that the 918 Spyder will begin production in September of 2013, possibly after a showing at the Frankfurt motor show, with the first cars being delivered to owners before the year is out, although Australian buyers will miss out on the most extreme Porsche yet, as it will only be made in left-hand-drive.

The company has released pictures of prototype versions of the open-top petrol electric sports car that can sprint from 0-100km/h in less than three seconds, while sipping as little fuel as a Toyota Prius. Porsche says the 2013 Porsche Sportcars Prototype 918 Spyder will reach 200km/h in less than nine seconds before cracking 300km/h in less than 27 seconds. The complex hybrid drivetrain is primarily driven by a rear-mounted 4.6-litre V8 engine producing about 425kW of power. It’s teamed to a 90kW rear-mounted electric motor and a single 80kW front-mounted electric motor, giving it four-wheel drive. Porsche says the maximum total output is 575kW, while the torque output is rated at more than 750Nm. Porsche said that when it’s all said and done, the 918 Spyder should pump out 770-hp with a 0 to 62 mph time of 3.2 seconds with a top speed of more than 200 mph. Fuel-economy should come in around 3 liters/100km or 78.4 mpg US.

2013 Porsche Sport cars Prototype 918 Spyder “Race Hybrid” is the mode for the highest possible performance and especially sporty dri -ving style. The combustion engine is chiefly used under high load, and charges the battery when the driver is not utilising the maximum output. The electric motors provide additional support as necessary in the form of a boost when the driver requires even more power. The electric motors are used up to the maximum power output limit in order to provide the best possible performance for the race track. In this mode, the battery charge state is not kept constant, but instead fluctuates across the entire charge range. In contrast to Sport Hybrid mode, the electric motors run at their maximum power output limits for a short time, thus ensuring better boosting. This increased output is balanced out by the combustion engine charging the battery more powerfully.
The main source of propulsion is the 4.6-litre, eight cylinder engine delivering more than 570 hp of power, which was directly derived from the power unit in the successful RS Spyder and explains why it delivers engine speeds of up to 9,000 rpm. Like the RS Spyder’s racing engine, the 918 Spyder power unit features dry-sump lubrication with a separate oil tank and oil extraction. In order to save weight, the four extraction pumps are made of plastic. Further extensive lightweight design measures resulted in.

The 2013 Porsche Sportcars Prototype 918 Spyder’s multi-link chassis is inspired by racing car construction, comple -mented by additional systems such as the adaptive shock-absorber system PASM and rear-axle steering. Basically, this comprises an electro-mechanical adjustment system on each rear wheel. The adjustment is speed-sensitive and executes steering angles of a few degrees in each direction. The rear axle can therefore be steered in the same direction or the opposite direction to the front wheels. At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels. This makes cornering even more direct, faster and more precise, and reduces the turning circle. At higher speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels. This minimises the “pushing” of the vehicle’s rear end when changing lanes quickly. The result is very secure and stable handling. The exhaust system is racing car inspired, with short muffler pipes that come out of the top of the car’s rear end, next to the engine. The seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission has been fitted upside-down to lower the 1700kg car’s centre of gravity. It also has rear-axle steering for better control through slow corners.
All that technology is expected to come at a price, though. Estimates suggest the 2013 Porsche Sportcars Prototype 918 Spyder could cost upwards of $750,000. As to be expected, the plug-in hybrid sports car will command a princely price tag, which Porsche has indicated will start at $845,000.

2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept


2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept

In 1963, Ferruccio Lamborghini initiated the company with the intent of creating supercars to compete with models from Ferrari. Now, as a celebration of this event 50th anniversary of the well-known Italian sports car brand Lamborghini in 2013, Ferruccio Lamborghini as an homage to, a transportation design student at Staffordshire university Mark Hostler, has designed the futuristic super sports carconcept – 2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept

Actually this concept is part of his course assignment and it is a great blend of past and future designs of Lamborghini. Mark Hostler of Staffordshire University in England has created a concept car in tribute to Lamborghini's 50th anniversary next year.The transportation design student created his Ferruccio concept to directly compete against Lamborghini's Italian rival's legendary Ferrari Enzo.The super-aggressive 2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept takes its cues from the lineup of V12s the Italian supercar maker has produced over the years.

As per the designer, the concept is "a car that takes inspiration from the company’s lineage, and also showcases the current design language and innovations of the company in their trademark flamboyant style." The concept’s front end, bonnet, and super-wide rear end were inspired by the Countach. The front and rear wings were inspired by the Miura, while the sharp nose and mirrors, and aggressive air intakes across the body and roof take their inspiration from the current Lamborghini design language.

"The 2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept is a car designed to showcase both the past and future of Lamborghini, showing how new design and technologies blend seamlessly with the company's rich heritage and history," said Hostler of his creation.The technological aspect comes in the form of efficient parts and pieces. Motivation comes in the form of a more fuel-efficient 5.0-liter V12 complete with direct injection, camless valve system and 'several turbochargers.'

Lamborghini Ferruccio utilizes both aggressive styling and engineering. The style of it is quite similar to a jet fighter. The designer knows very well that Lamborghini has to fulfill the strict emission regulation therefore he developed a power plant that helps the car to retain its V12 while also work as an environment friendly machine. Fuel consumption will be reduced to a great extent with the mean of direct injection and a computer controlled camless valve system.
The concept was designed to use a small 5.0 liter V12 engine with two turbochargers and feature direct injection technology. 2013 Lamborghini Sports Cars Ferruccio Concept is able to develop about 600 hp power output and 650 Nm of torque since it’s powered by a five-liter V12 dual-turbocharged engine with direct injection technology.
