2008 Alfa Romeo BAT 11

After more than 50 years, there is a new BAT model. The new BAT 11, based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, shares many styling cues with the classic BAT cars of the 50s. Based on a modified Alfa Romeo 8C platform, the BAT 11 continues some of the distinguishing elements of the original ‘Berlinetta Aerodynamica Tecnica’ cars designed by Franco Scaglione and developed by Nuccio Bertone.

These include the tapered fins and faired wheels, all in a context where soft propositions are combined with strong, robust lines. The monolithic form has a simple dihedral bodyside section with fins that seem to have been designed as a shawl that wraps around the car beginning from the front fender and extending to the top of the side windows toward the rear.

The front end is strongly tapered to a V-shape with a neat Alfa Romeo shield low down in the lean-forward nose. The V-shaped form continues into the wraparound windshield and continues at the rear, with a center fin butting up to the tapering rear window and a pair of open air extraction slots behind the rear wheels.

Meadow Brook Concours Chosen for North American Debut of B.A.T. 11

– B.A.T. 11 will make its North American debut at the 30th Annual Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance on August 3 in Rochester. This eagerly-anticipated news in the car world, event organizers say, is also big news for Michigan, home to B.A.T. 11 creator, Dr. Gary Kaberle. The debut will shine an even brighter international spotlight on an event that draws top collectors and thousands of visitors and car enthusiasts to the area.

‘I am thrilled to be introducing the world to B.A.T. 11 in my home state,’ says Kaberle. ‘Michigan is where I first caught B.A.T. fever as a teenager and sharing my latest dream with everyone here seems not only fitting, but right.’ I have been working with Stile Bertone since 2006 on this project and am delighted that it will be part of Meadow Brook’s exciting event.’

Alfa Romeo BAT 11

B.A.T. 11 has already gained worldwide attention, having appeared on numerous magazine covers and in scores of articles. It is the newest member in the family of Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica concept cars, which many aficionados say are among the most famous cars in the world. B.A.T. 5, 7 and 9 were designed by the legendary Nuccio Bertone and Franco Scaglione in the mid-1950s, built on the Alfa Romeo 1900 Sprint chassis and are highly regarded for their futuristic but functional curves.

Each B.A.T. car has its own vivid story. Yet, the histories surrounding B.A.T. 9 and B.A.T. 11 are fundamentally intertwined. Kaberle purchased B.A.T. 9 as a teenager with popcorn-stand money and a loan from his grandmother. He sold it 23 years later to help fund medical treatment for his wife, Debbie, who passed away two years later. Soon after, Kaberle started exhaustive research of the B.A.T. cars. He visited the Scaglione family in Italy and began working with Stile Bertone on B.A.T. 11, a project he calls ‘Dreams and Design for a Cure’ that honors his wife and the B.A.T. heritage.

Visitors to the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours will get an up-close look at the model mockup of B.A.T. 11, a stunning remake with Bertone-inspired advancements in its visor glass, dynamic graphics and sheer cut surfaces.

‘B.A.T. 11 is a design phenomenon with a great pedigree. It’s the perfect complement to our 2008 field of cars representing 100 years of design excellence, says event chairman Larry Smith. ‘We are honored that Meadow Brook has been chosen for its debut.’ Adds Dr. Kaberle, ‘What’s worth having, is worth sharing. What could be better than sharing a little B.A.T. power to celebrate design and life in Michigan?’

In addition to the exciting debut of B.A.T. 11, Meadow Brook’s 2008 show field will feature 1950-1970 Ferraris and V16′s from the 30′s. The 30th annual event celebrates the 100th Anniversary of GM, Sports Cars, Muscle Cars, and over 225 of the most desirable collector cars coming from 36 states. In the Meadow Brook Hall courtyard enthusiasts can see contemporary supercars as well as marques such as Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, Corvette, Lotus and Porsche.

Kia Cerato (2009)

Kia has give a preview of the new 2009 Kia Cerato at Australian International Motor Show this year. The new 2009 Kia Cerato will be launched on the market in 2009, and features the H-grille design - the “new face of Kia”.

The 2009 Kia Cerato’s new design is signed by chief design officer, Peter Schreyer, who believes that the styling is the No.1 purchase influence.

Kia Cerato (2009) will be equipped with either a 2-litre engine with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) or a 2.2-litre engine. The 2009 Kia Cerato has more spacious interior and a longer wheelbase.

2009 Kia Cerato

Press Release
Headlining the Kia stand at this year’s Australian International Motor Show is a preview of the new and very stylish Kia Cerato sedan, due for release to the Australian market early in 2009.

New Kia Cerato will be the first Kia released in Australia to feature the ‘new face of Kia’, the H-grille design from the pen of Kia’s global chief design officer, Peter Schreyer, who joined the
company in 2006 from the Volkswagen Group.

Schreyer’s corporate H-grille echoes his car design philosophy. According to Schreyer, design is the No.1 purchase influence but it is essential that new designs match both the Kia brand value and the vision of the Kia brand.

The new Cerato is the first mass production Kia that embodies Peter Schreyer’s thinking, and introduces the new Kia ‘face’ that is sporty with an element of aggression.

Eye-catching integrity of design is just one factor in new car buyers’ minds. Customers want quality, safety, reliability, value and low total cost of ownership. That’s where the efficiencies of Kia’s highly-developed production facilities are displayed in the all-new Cerato, building cars in a smarter way with more efficient use of materials.

New Cerato is the perfect choice for people seeking a modern, well-engineered and more efficient car to reduce their ownership costs without compromising quality, safety or reliability.

The new model will bridge the gap between small and medium cars with the space, performance, features and value that many Australian car buyers are seeking, without having to pay more for a medium-sized car with a larger and less economical engine.

Longer and wider than the current Cerato sedan and in fact more roomy than the first generation Toyota Camry sold in Australia, the new Kia Cerato has a longer wheelbase than its predecessor with a more spacious and comfortable interior room for five occupants and a bigger boot.

New Cerato will feature a new, efficient 2-litre engine with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for class-leading power and torque, delivering the pulling power and responsiveness of a 2.2-litre engine without the fuel consumption of a bigger engine.

Like all new Kia vehicles now sold in Australia, the new Cerato will be covered by Kia’s 5-year/unlimited kilometre warranty for private buyers (5-year/130,000kms for fleet buyers).

The final specification and pricing for Australian vehicles is still to be determined but the new Kia Cerato is unquestionably an eye-catching design that will match the space and performance that Australian small car buyers want and an outstanding value-for-money price.

Alanis Morissette - The 7-time Grammy winning artist has partnered with the German brand and its Mixed Tape online music magazine for the first video/single from her highly new album Flavors of Entanglement (Maverick/Reprise Records).

Alanis Morissette chose the Mercedes E320 BlueTEC for her clip since she is a strong supporter of environmental causes and organizations.

In this latest video of Alanis Morissette, she distributes environmental fliers and when a Mercedes E320 BlueTEC goes by she salutes in appreciation for the environmentally aware choice.

Press Release

Seven-time Grammy winning artist Alanis Morissette has partnered with Mercedes-Benz and its “Mixed Tape” online music magazine for “Underneath,” the first video/single from her highly anticipated new album Flavors of Entanglement (Maverick/Reprise Records). Alanis, a strong supporter of environmental causes and organizations, chose the fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC for the music clip.

“Making green choices on a local level is important in creating global change,” says Alanis. “I’m glad that Mercedes-Benz is introducing a great option with the new E320 BlueTEC, and thrilled to include it in the video for my new song ‘Underneath’ as it fits right in with the concept.”

In the video, which was shot in Los Angeles, Alanis is sitting at a bus stop wearing a “Save the Earth” t-shirt and distributing fliers to encourage concern for the environment. When a Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC passes by, Alanis salutes the Mercedes driver in appreciation for their environmentally aware choice.

Flavors of Entanglement will go on sale in Italy and Germany on May 30, and June 2 in most other countries except Japan and United States where it will arrive on June 2 and June 10, respectively. The new video is in extra large rotation on VH-1 following its debut on May 20. In June, the “Underneath” video featuring the E320 BlueTEC sedan will appear online both at Mixed Tape, the downloadable Mercedes-Benz music magazine (www.mercedes-benz.tv/mixedtape), and at the Mercedes-Benz USA BlueTEC micro site (www.mbusa.com).

BlueTEC denotes state-of-the-art engine and exhaust technology which produces the cleanest diesels available on the market today. Utilizing this technology, the V6-powered E320 BlueTEC diesel is able to provide the powerful torque of a large V8 engine with the low fuel consumption of a four-cylinder compact. This fall, the E320 BlueTEC sedan will be joined by a trio of Mercedes-Benz SUV’s using this advanced powerplant, including ML320 BlueTEC SUV, the larger GL320 BlueTEC, and the versatile R320 BlueTEC.

Beyond their fuel efficiency, from an environmental standpoint, BlueTEC vehicles are the cleanest diesels available in the world today. Since diesels inherently burn less fuel than gasoline vehicles, they also produce significantly lower emissions of carbon dioxide (C02). Also, in BlueTEC vehicles particulate levels are reduced to levels comparable – or better than – that of gasoline-powered vehicles. Last year, the Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC was named the “2007 World Green Car,” an awards program initiated, organized, and conducted by automotive journalists from around the globe.

As it is usual for Abt, the result is quite respectable and can be driven with fascination. The light and sporty high-tech material Carbon well visibly shapes the rear skirt, the side blades and the side skirts.

The exciting body kit of the two-seater was developed by the motor sports professionals from Kempten who also optimized the car in reducing weight and in distributing mass evenly. That optical features do not obviate technical sophistications but, on the contrary, lead to perfection clearly show the contours of the Abt Audi R8. Front skirt, side skirts, and rear skirt form a unit in which the rear wing, the side blades and also the exhaust system are harmonically integrated. A special highlight is the front skirt partially made of sight carbon. It is a component of the equipment version �Extravagant�. The customer is able to provide his Abt Audi R8 with attachment parts, at his own option with elements of sight carbon. A two tone structure is also possible by request. This equipment version also offers the customer the possibility to beautify his R8 with an Abt body kit made of high-quality GRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic).

Also the new BR wheel from Abt with its bi-colour paint perfectly fits the car. The front axis presents it in the size 9x20 inch, the rear axis in 11x20 inch. Thus the R8 appears much more dynamical. With Abt suspension springs and car lowering the team from Kempten improves the road holding even more as Christian Abt and his specialists exactly adjusted the suspension. With the Abt sports brake system (380 millimeters diameter), the fast super sports car from the Allg�u sets standards also in matters of delay.

The new Abt Audi R8 is a car which makes hearts beat faster. It perfectly brings the magic of speed onto the road even when standing still.

FORD�BUILT ENGINE FOR AWARD-WINNING MCRAE ENDURO RALLY CAR

The McRae Enduro rally car, powered by a Ford-assembled engine, has won the prestigious ‘Idea of the Year’ at the 2007 Autocar Awards, and been dedicated to the late Colin McRae by the team behind it.

The rally car, which will be competing in races including the 6,000 km cross-Saharan Dakar Rally, is powered by a 2.7�litre V6 turbo, 220 horsepower diesel engine built at the Ford Dagenham Diesel Centre in Essex.

The award was announced by Chas Hallett, Autocar’s editor to an audience of 480 global motor industry leaders and celebrities.

Receiving the award, Christopher Bibb, commercial director for the McRae Enduro operation based at Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex, said: “Rally driver Alister McRae, the younger brother of Colin, is our chief test driver.”

“As soon as testing started, Colin was keen to drive the Enduro, but for many reasons that never quite happened, and sadly now never will. We therefore dedicate our award to Colin McRae � one of Britain’s greatest sportsmen.”

Chris Harrison, director of Ford Component Sales, said: “As the supplier of the engine and other Ford components, we are proud to be associated with the Enduro.

“With an extensive portfolio of more than 100,000 components in Europe alone, Ford Component Sales offers an extremely attractive package to smaller companies.

“It makes sense for low-volume manufacturers to use the resources of a global giant by dipping into its extensive parts bin. Design and development costs are kept to a minimum, and reliability and quality at competitive prices are assured.”
