2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Review

Written by Admin on . Posted in Range Rover Sport, Sports Cars, SUV

The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover has come with improvements over its other models. The aluminum chassis and the light weight (which has come down by 700 pounds) make this car one of the best in 2014. The fuel economy ratings have improved to quite an extent and the unique part of this car is it has eight speed automatic transmissions. Compared to other cars which give V8 engines the Land Rover Range Rover has come up with a supercharged V6 engine to give a better mpg and solid performance. The new model has been more spacious by increasing the length and the width has also been changed. The room inside the cabin has increased and for the first time there is a third row in the car. But this third row is small and meant for kids. The design is sleek and the front part looks really aggressive.

The body of the car is sleek enough but the interior is spacious enough to fit two trim levels. The trim level has different packages and each package has different features. The SE trim has the following features:

In addition to this, there are towing packages and a rear entertainment system too. The emergency brake system and the cruise control have improved by great margins. The third row that has been included is optional. It can be folded down to increase the space in the back. The performance of the car is also worth mentioning. The engine has the ability to develop 510 HP and as much as 461 lb ft of torque. Both the V6 and V8 engines have eight speed automatic transmissions to balance the car. Coming to the pickup of this model it has the ability to sprint to 60 in just 5 seconds. The V6 engine also covers almost the same distance.

The 4 Fastest Cars on the Planet

Written by Admin on . Posted in Sports Cars

As of Valentine’s Day, a new record has been set in automobile speed. Imagine, if you can, a vehicle capable of driving 270.49 miles per hour, claiming the coveted title of “fastest car in the world.” The cars that claim the titles for second, third, and fourth fastest certainly have nothing to be ashamed of, boasting speeds that most people will never travel on the ground in their lifetimes. The next time you’re stuck in traffic on the interstate, just sit back and dream of driving one of these incredible automotive wonders.

1. Hennessey Venom GT

1

On February 14, 2014, the Hennessey Venom GT set a new record for speed on the space shuttle landing strip at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, when former racing driver Brian Smith took it to an incredible 270.49 mph. Because of technicalities, the Venom GT isn’t eligible for the Guinness World Record for speed even though it still is the fastest car in the world. However, the car does hold the Guinness World Record for going from 0 to 300 kilometers per hour in 13.63 seconds. Let that sink in for a moment. John Hennessey, the Texan responsible for building this marvel, isn’t finished yet. He projects that the car is capable of hitting 278 mph on a longer track than the 3.2-mile NASA runway; although, that record remains to be set.

2. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

2

 

The longtime rival of the Hennessey Venom GT used to hold the title for the world’s fastest car, but since Valentine’s Day, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport must settle for the number two spot, with a top speed of 268 mph. The French supercar boasts aggressive and unique styling and a price tag of $2,425,904 as of 2011. Although the Venom GT has reached the highest recorded speed, the Super Sport still technically holds the Guinness World Record (but not been without its challenges).

3

Prior to the Super Sport model claiming the #2 spot, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse held this position for it’s race in China, where it topped out at 254.04 mph. This car was unveiled shortly thereafter at the Shangai Motor Show in April 2013. This Veyron still holds the record for the fastest open-top production sports car, an achievement it doesn’t let the world forget in a hurry.

3. Koenigsegg Agera R

4

Close your eyes and count up to three seconds. Now, imagine that, in those three short seconds, you could step on an accelerator and make your car go from 0 to 60 mph. What seems unimaginable is a reality with the Swedish Koenigsegg Agera R. While the manufacturer claims that the car is capable of a stunning 273 mph—faster than both the Hennessey Venom GT and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport—its top verified speed is 260 mph. The vehicle is impressive enough for royalty, which may explain why the Royal Family of Oman snapped one up at the Geneva Motor Show.

4. SSC Ultimate Aero

5

Although it has since been passed up by the three previously-discussed supercars, the SSC Ultimate Aero, an American-built vehicle, held the Guinness World Record for the world’s fastest car for three consecutive years from 2007 to 2010. The Aero’s top recorded speed is a stunning 257 mph, approximately 100 mph faster than the typical speed of an aircraft during takeoff. A snazzy feature is the SSC Ultimate Aero’s braking system, which consists of a spoiler that deploys and lifts up to 8 inches when the brake is pressed—both functional and perhaps just a little bit showy.

Used Cars for Sale in Edinburgh by Owner

Written by Admin on . Posted in Used Cars

Used car by owners for sale is an idea that can eventually come up to every person’s mind in the Edinburgh’s market of used cars. The conception is that sales from owners usually save money. But, this could be either very true or very wrong.

The plan would be efficient if the proper research is provided, and could be the worst experience if you skipping to do it. It can lead to a higher total budget when the repairs are added to the balance. From this, careless buyers do not gain no sympathy from some individuals and dealers when it comes to the consequences of selling a used vehicle.

This article is focused on pre-owned vehicles for sale in Edinburgh. Private sellers do not have to pay rental, employees and a lot of other costs concerned with running a auto dealership.

This makes used cars listed by owners to be cheaper than the identical at any dealership. This is why people are able to find cars from owners for sale in Edinburgh.

When turning to the private sellers, person should know that each human always looks for his or her best interest, because not only buyers do so. Therefore, it does not hurt to ask some questions and in future use the available services to receive the answers. There are some services that can provide you with info relating to accidents that vehicle have been in, and some mechanical problems were determined. Thus, the best advice that can be given to the buyer is to get the seller that is able to provide an inspection report done by a mechanical shop. You could then determine the condition of your vehicle that can be the excellent, good, or fair based on this report.

Second hand small cars in Edinburgh for sale are listed in a huge number of marketing channels. Just start with local newspapers and get an idea of what is out there.  After this, you can visit trade magazines, and finally use the power of the internet. Bear in mind that all methods mentioned above charge to list a vehicle, and the more cars they list the greater will be their profit. Utilize the internet and visit websites that are free to list the vehicles, and better yet, seek for those that can provide free advice and useful tips to their users. The method these websites operate enables them to get profit from the buyers who visit their site, as appose to the sellers listing their autos.

Finally, you should understand that the asking price is not equal to the final of pocket value. After purchasing the vehicle, you should pay tax, registration, license and mainly important initial preventive maintenance (fluid flushes, oil changes, etc.). Pre-owned car by owner for sale could be the best dream, but sometimes the worst nightmare. It depends on the level of awareness of the history of vehicle, and the basic research buyer does.
