The Ugliest Untitled Car Ever

by on Jul.09, 2013, under Car Accessories, Formula1, Fun

Of all the things cars should be, having looks which are at least worth looking at is a must.  A cars body if not even worthy of a glimpse means a very low sale of the car. Same is the story of the car made in 1985 by Mosler. It is also known as Consulier GTP. Only hundred of cars were ever made. That also was within a large span of eight years from 1985 to 1993. This car in blunt words is probably the ugliest car ever made. Everything about this car from the glasshouse, the haggard bin accessories to the weirdly shaped silhouette say “Do not look at me and definitely do not buy me.”
Strong car inside
This exteriorly yucky car holds a super cool, strong and impressive interior.
This car even though being so ugly has been a topic of intrigue and probing by die-hard car enthusiasts. What they discovered stunned them.
The car is light as can be according to its era. It has a Chrysler 2.2 litre tuned turbo engine having four cylinders. The chassis is a monocoque carbon-fiber built by Mosler. The body panels of the car consist of both Kevlar and CF.
The first in car production of that time. All this has made this car one of the fastest of its era.
This car had such speed that the company owner challenged anyone to run any other car at a time better that the Consulier at the One Lap America. No one ever won that challenge and due to the cars dominance it was banned from the race league.
The Gist
In today’s world this car should cost more than ten thousand dollars. But that is true only if one is completely willing t ignore the fact that it looks hideous. This car is all about the inner beauty trounces outer ugliness.

Ford Set To Increase The Number Of Jobs At Its Ohio Plant By 450

The Ford 2 liter Ecoboost engine is all set to be built and developed at the Brook Part plant in Ohio. As a result, the world famous company plans to add 450 jobs to its Ohio plant to help in the smooth production of these engines. Further, the Ohio plant is also set to receive a $200 million funding boost to help it cope up with the engine demands and manufacturing processes. At present, this engine is only being made in Spain. This plant will transfer the entire manufacture of the 2 liter Ecoboost to Cleveland and will continue to make smaller engines for the European markets. One of the main reasons for this shift is that Ford has managed to sell about 530000 Ecoboost engines in the United States from about 2010 to 2012 and plans to sell 500000 engines in the year 2013 itself. The popularity of the 2 liter engine has been such that it is soon supposed to give the 3.5 liter V6 engine a run for its money as the most popular Ford engine to be sold in the U.S. 

Ford Predicts Lukewarm Sales For The Focus Electric Compact Car

Ford recently added about 700 dealerships to its existing list of dealers who have been authorized to sell the all electric car by Ford called Focus Electric. However, despite this massive increase in dealerships, the company expects lukewarm sales for the vehicle. The latest estimates have put the sales of the electric vehicle at about just 5% of the total sales of its hybrid and electric vehicles in the year to come. Moreover, almost 90% of the electric vehicle sales have come from the golden state of California. One of the main reasons for the lukewarm response has been its inferior quality when compared to Nissan’s Leaf. Nissan sold about 7716 of its leaf models while Ford managed to sell only 683 of its electric version. Another reason is that the Leaf is available for as little as $18800 while the Ford Focus would cause one to spend about $29200. As a result, it has mostly been received by people looking for a trendier vehicle irrespective of its cost.

The Formula 1 Safety     

by on Dec.28, 2012, under Formula1, Fun

When it comes to safety, Formula 1 considers this thing as a very important and paramount aspect in the field of racing.  The truth is that there had been countless tragedies and accidents have already occurred not only in the part of the drivers but to the spectators as well.
However, during the past few years, there have been many ways that have been done to protect people joining and taking part in the Formula 1 car race. Drivers and fans were all given what they need to protect themselves during the race.
In this regard, people taking part in the race get their needed protection, thus giving them the privilege to get rid of potential injuries while enjoying their favorite car racing sport.
The following are a number of the important safety measures that are commonly used in all Formula 1 car racing events.
The monocoque or cockpit provides the driver as his survival cell. This is basically an extra strong portion of the racing car that serves as a protective shield, a cell or a cocoon of the driver when in times accidents occur. This includes the driver’s seat and fits the exact dimensions of the driver.
Another safety measure for the driver is wearing the right and proper overall – the one that is imposed by the authorities of Formula 1 themselves. The overalls of the driver should also be combined with gloves, helmet, and boots, thus forming a seamless barrier. The overall required by Formula 1 to drivers is made up of Nomex, a kind of synthetic fiber that also protects the driver from possible fire brought up for at least twelve seconds.
Additionally, the logos of the sponsors appearing on the car are also required to be composed of the same material to discourage fire enhancement during an accident.
The HANS (Head and Neck support system) is a kind of collar that is made from carbon fiber. It perfectly fits around the driver’s neck and this protects his neck and head in the occassion of accident, crash, and collision. This solar is connected to the driver’s helmet through three straps. This allows the head to move freely while deflecting frontal impact.
Helmet size did not change but now Formula 1 helmets are made from lightweight yet stronger materials.
And of course, a 5-point harness is also found securing the driver on his seat. 5-point simply means the 5 straps that are connected to the shoulders, sides, and amid the legs respectively.

Formula One Racing Cars: Design Features

by on Aug.01, 2012, under Car Accessories, Formula1, Fun

To achieve fuel efficiency, a car joining the Formula One should come up with an aerodynamic design. Aerodynamic designs are similar to those that are commonly used for fighter jets. The only thing that makes it different from a Formula One car is the fact that the fighter jet leaves the ground while the Formula One car does not.

Another important design that should be found in a Formula One car is a down force that firmly holds the tire on the ground surface. A tight grip on the ground or on the race track is the benefit of a car that comes with such kind of design. Formula One confirms that tires and down force are essential components of safety and speed.

Formula One cars should also come up with brake designs that are specially made. Basically, you will find the brakes to be mush similar to stock road vehicles. However, these cars come with components that are more extraordinary. This is due to the fact that these cars usually work at high speeds which simply mean they come up with high temperatures.

Overall, the engine comes with a light weight design, powerful, and efficient which is indeed a very tall order.
