Abu Dhabi Police tests the Lykan HyperSport !

If you have seen Furious 7 than probably that was the last time you saw a Lykan HyperSport, Vin Diesel was driving it through a window of the Etihad Towers in one scene.

“We brought it into the country last week for pilot-testing,” said Brig Hussain Al Harthi, director of central operations. “We haven’t bought it yet because we want to test it first to see if it fits Abu Dhabi Police’s requirements.”

W Motors, a Dubai company, produces the car in Turin, Italy, together with Magna Steyr. The car costs 12.5 million Dirhams.

So keep you eyes open for this really rare car that lets even a Koenigsegg look like mass-ware.

Free Parking in Dubai on May 16!

The  Roads and Transport Authority  (RTA)  announced today that all parking areas in parts of Dubai will be free of charge during the holiday marking the Prophet’s Ascension Day ( Isra and Mi’raj) corresponding to Saturday May 16.

For now, the RTA said, the parking yard at the Fish Market as well as its multi-level parking are excluded from this exemption in order to provide parking slots for intended users.

The RTA also calls upon the public, especially motorists, to ensure the optimal use of parking spaces and urges motorists not to park their vehicles on pavements or block the movement of other vehicles, or they will risk applicable fines.

In Pictures: Audi TT Clubsport

The Audi TT clubsport turbo has a power-boosted 2.5 TFSI engine with very impressive performance data. From 2,480 cc of displacement, the five-cylinder engine produces 441 kW (600 hp) of power and 650 Nm of torque, the latter from 3,000 to 7,000 rpm. This means that it produces 176 kW (240 hp) and 260 Nm per liter of displacement. The Power is transferred via a manual six-speed transmission.

Thanks to systematic lightweight design, the TT clubsport turbo show car has an unladen weight of just 1,396 kg. The car completes the standard sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and its top speed is 310 km/h. The TT clubsport turbo plays out its big advantage over the first few meters of a sprint. Its electrically driven compressor lets it cover up to 16 meters within the first 2.5 seconds – which is six meters further than a comparable car without this innovation. That is a difference of around one and one-half car lengths.

Audi reveals the Prologue Allroad concept at Shanghai Auto Show

Earlier this year we saw the Audi Prologue Avant concept, at Geneva, this time we get to see a new member of the Prologue concept range, namely the Allroad concept. Audi decided to choose the Shanghai Auto Show to reveal this model.

We all know what Allroad means to Audi. We talk about a more rugged appearance, a higher ride and other minor tweaks to make the car better on other surfaces than normal roads. At the concept’s heart sits a 4.0-liter TFSI engine as well as an electric motor. With a massive total output of 734 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque, the prototype sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3,5 seconds.

All this power goes to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox while the 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery offers a zero-emission driving range of 54 kilometers. It remains to be seen how and when this concept will transform into a production model.
