Citroën C6 and Grand C4 Picasso launched

| Labels: | 0 comments |









The C6 Exclusive, which is powered by a 3.0l V6 engine offering 215bhp at 6,000 rpm and 290Nm of torque at 3,752rpm, is certainly striking, with design lines that blends elements of coupé and saloon.

A long wheelbase and flowing, aerodynamic profile lends the RM398,000 vehicle massive presence; the windows hug the curve of the roof arch, which in turn blends smoothly into the rear pillars in a subtle nod to coupé styling, an effect that is taken one step further by the frameless doors.

The interior of the C6 creates an immediate impression of space and comfort. The pure lines of the dashboard, the choice of premium materials and comfortable, sculpted seats round up a thoroughly inviting cabin.

In terms of equipment levels, the list includes ESP, ABS and EBA systems, Xenon headlamps, 18-inch alloys with 245/45 series rubbers, active suspension, a host of airbags (driver and front passenger, driver's knee protection, lateral thorax airbags and front/rear curtain airbags), an automatically-controlled three-position rear deflector that deploys dependent on vehicle speed, as well as a heads-up display.

As for the Grand C4 Picasso seven-seater MPV, this five-star Euro NCAP rated vehicle is powered by a 2.0l 16-valve VVT engine putting out 143bhp and 200Nm, with a four-speed auto tranny in tow.

Plenty of glass - and light - on this one, with large windows and panoramic windscreen and sunroof helping to make things bright and spacious. Lots of usable configurations behind as well, from the three individual second row seats and the two individual third row seats, all of which are retractable.

Storage aplenty too, from the four large enclosed compartments in the dash to the tables/storage pockets on the rear of the second row seats. Other features and aids include an automatic parking brake, dual zone climate control with air vents for all three seating rows, ESP, cruise control with speed limiter and multiple airbags, all of which come as standard. Ten body colour choices abound.

Tips on Filling Fuel for your Vehicles

Monday, May 5, 2008 | Labels: | 0 comments |

This is a Message received from a friend:

I don't know what you guys are paying for petrol... but here in Durban, we are also paying higher, up to 47.35 per litre. But my line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every litre.

Here at the Marian Hill Pipeline, where I work in Durban, we deliver about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline.
One day is diesel; the next day is jet fuel, and petrol, LRP and Unleaded. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 litres.

ONLY BUY OR FILL UP YOUR CAR OR BIKKIE IN THE EARLY MORNING WHEN THE GROUND TEMPERATURE IS STILL COLD. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground, the denser the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening.... your litre is not exactly a litre.

In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products play an important role. A 1degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.

WHEN YOU'RE FILLING UP, DO NOT SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER OF THE NOZZLE TO A FAST MODE. If you look, you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode, you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created, while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS IS TO FILL UP WHEN YOUR TANK IS HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank, the less air occupying its empty space. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.
Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated, so that every litre is actually the exact amount.

ANOTHER REMINDER, IF THERE IS A FUEL TRUCK PUMPING INTO THE STORAGE TANKS, WHEN YOU STOP TO BUY, DO NOT FILL UP - most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Hope, this will help you get the maximum value for your money.

DO SHARE THESE TIPS WITH OTHERS! LET’S SHARE INFORMATION AND BENEFIT ALL, FOR THE BETTER OF MANKIND.

BMW M1 Hommage Officially Revealed

| Labels: | 0 comments |








The BMW M1 Hommage, the M1, blew out the candles at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este this weekend. In honor of the car's thirtieth birthday, BMW rolled out the new BMW M1 Hommage, a concept/design study that pays tribute to the original M1 and shows what could be possible if BMW were to produce a new mid-engined sports car. Technical specifications have not yet been announced. There appears to be no interior, and BMW doesn't even bother mentioning specific powertrain possibilities. The M1 Hommage is strictly a design exercise meant to celebrate an icon.

Malaysia Shell Launches New Ferrari Model Cars

Sunday, March 2, 2008 | Labels: | 0 comments |

Lets visit SHELL petrol stataion today to collect the new set of 7 Ferrari model cars.

To celebrate over 60 years of shared passion for performance by Shell and Ferrari, Shell today launched a new limited edition scale model (Scale: 1:38) collection of the highly popular model GT Ferraris with improved features.

The range had been launched in Singapore earlier on end of February.

This is the second and most ambitious of Shell’s Ferrari model car promotions. The first promotion in November 2006 saw about 280,000 of cars sold over a 12-week period.

The Ferrari model cars are designed as a collectable set of seven. Careful thought has been put into the selection of the models featured. The result is a mix of new and historic racing and road Ferrari GT cars.

Models represented include:

• Ferrari FXX – The most advanced GT car ever created at Maranello, the FXX is the flagship in the new Ferrari model car collection. This limited-edition GT car was created so that Ferrari’s most dedicated and passionate clients could become test drivers. Only 30 of this special prototype were ever produced.

• Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano – Ferrari’s stunning new all-aluminium Gran Turismo flagship model was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006. The sporty 12-cylinder two-seater was voted ‘Car of the Year’ by several leading car magazines. It can reach a top speed of over 205mph/330kmph.

• Ferrari F430 Challenge – An intensive series of tests at Ferrari’s private track, Fiorano, honed the many talents of the F430 Challenge. As always, the transfer from Formula One is significant – particularly in the braking system and Formula One gearbox.

• Ferrari 250 GTO – This superb early 1960s berlinetta proved to be an excellent racing car. The 3.0-litre, V12 came first in its class at 24 Heures du Mans in 1962, securing its legendary status amongst racing enthusiasts. The 250 GTO has a maximum output of 290bhp at 7400rpm.

• Ferrari F40 – One of the fastest, most powerful legal street-cars in the world, the F40 was produced from 1987 to 1992. The 3.0-litre, V8 engine has 478bhp at 7000rpm. It can reach a top speed of 201mph/324 kmph. It raced at the 24 Heures du Mans and in the American IMSA championship.

• Ferrari Challenge Stradale – Ferrari used its experiences in the International Ferrari Challenge series to develop what is often described as a ‘racing car for road use’. Powered by a centrally-mounted V8 engine reaching 425 bhp at 8500rpm, it can reach a top speed of 186mph/300kmph.

• Ferrari 575 GTC – One of Ferrari’s most exciting competition cars, the 575 GTC is designed exclusively for Ferrari’s gentleman drivers and is raced across several different series. The all-new 12-cylinder engine can still push out 810bhp.

The Ferrari model cars are available from now all Shell stations. Every RM40 spent on Shell V-Power entitles you to purchase a Ferrari model car at RM5.90 each. Alternatively, spend RM40 on Shell Formula Petrol 98/95/92, Shell Diesel or 4-litres of Shell Helix Super and get a Ferrari model car at RM8.90 each.

These promotions are valid while stocks last. Terms and conditions apply.
