Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS

The first thing that strikes anyone viewing the Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS is its body styling. Svelte and subtle it is not with bulges and air intakes all over the front, including the 70mm longer (than standard) forward opening bonnet. The bonnet isn't the only part of the Tornado 750 GTS that has been lengthened, the front and rear bumper/spoiler combinations have also been extended compared to the standard Porsche Cayenne. Whilst dimensions have increased weight has actually reduced, impressively the all carbon body styling is estimated to reduce the weight of the Tornado 750 GTS by 250kgs in comparison to a standard Cayenne.
The weight saving is doubly useful when one considers the power and torque of the tuned engine Gemballa {link} have produced for the Tornado 750 GTS. From its now 5 litre turbocharged engine the Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS produces a very impressive 750PS and 1050Nm of torque. Enough power to propel this über-Cayenne to 62mph from rest in 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 185mph. The extreme front body styling draws air into the engine, larger intercooler, radiator and brakes as well as actually drawing air away from hot areas in the engine bay too. Exhaust gases exit the engine through a custom designed exhausts system with 4 tailpipes.
With such explosive performance available Gemballa have had to improve the suspension and brakes considerably. Behind the 12x22" wheels, covered by 335/25 tyres, sit huge brakes (415mm diameter front and 380mm diameter rear) which offer excellent and durable braking. The handling has been radically altered and improved, the Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS sits some 70mm lower on coilover suspension. Even so the 750 GTS is no out-and-out sports car and has a higher centre of gravity than would be considered perfect for a car with 750PS.
Gemballa have created a sumptuous, refined and yet sporty interior with 4 sports seats, full leather and carbon seating, dash and door panels.
Exclusivity is assured as Gemballa are limiting the production of the £370,000 Tornado 750 GTS to 50 worldwide. Interested parties should contact Gemballa's Leonberg offices quickly as the über-Cayenne offers such performance that Gemballa are unlikely to struggle selling out, even in these difficult economic times.

New Design of Peugeot Retro Style 2010

Peugeot 505 is a car designed by world-class design house "Pininfarina" for PSA Peugeot Citroen in France, which was produced in mid-May in 1979 until the year 1992. This car first product was introduced for the first time in Cannes Casino with the slogan: "... with the 505, Peugeot models presents a new line in Which Each detail Reflect ... elegance and efficiency."
Peugeot 505 is produced at the Sochaux plant in France and some other countries such as in Argentina by "Sevel" from years 1981 to 1995, China, Nigeria and Indonesia (1981-1988). While for marketing, other than in the United States and Europe, the Peugeot 505 is also sold in Australia, Argentina, Chile, China, and New Zealand.

peugeot_505_turbo_familiale_1991Peugeot 505 Series is produced as a replacement for the Peugeot 504, with two models: the Peugeot 505 saloon (sedan) and the Peugeot 505 Family Estate, better known by the name of the Peugeot 505 Stationwagon. This last type of entry into Indonesia but most are owned by large foreign Kedutaan2. Station wagon variants that have a third row seats (8 passenger) This is a model of the Renault 21 Savannah competitors. Very high popularity in Europe because many are used as taxis. Two rows of rear seats can be folded to provide a flat storage of goods, with a capacity of approximately 1.94 cubic meters, with a total load can be transported is 590 kg.

Peugeot 505 coupe and sedan models cabrioSelain and station wagons, manufacturer Peugeot had made "prototype" Peugeot 505 coupe (2 door), Peugeot 505 cabriolet (convertible) and the Peugeot 505 pick-ups. Thus, in France many modifications change the form of a Peugeot 505 pick-up / trucks.

At the time of "test drive" for the first time, a Peugeot 505 was praised by many automotive journalists in terms of "handling" and comfort, especially on rough road conditions that have not been on the tarmac (I think the reason is not applicable in developed countries the majority of the infra structure already built) . Cruising capability at the relatively poor road also Peugeot-505-gr-GTI-gtdt-dangelditunjang by Ground clearance is high enough, and therefore in the 1980s, "Dangel" create a version of the Peugeot 505 Estate (station wagon) that uses four wheel drive (four-wheel drive) with the "Shorter gear ratio" and is equipped with two choices of engine types: diesel engine with intercooled turbo engine which has 110hp (81kW) and Gasoline engine with a power capacity of 2.2 L. 130hp (96kW).

Although fairly good sales, production time ranges that are so long for Peugeot to force manufacturers to continue to anticipate the market, by means of Peugeot 505 pick-up "Facelift" on the exterior, including replacement of the interior with new models in 1986. But production in Europe will remain declines with the launch of the Peugeot 405 that are smaller than the Peugeot 505, which is ultimately the manufacturer Peugeot closed the entire production in 1992 (shortly after the launch of the Peugeot 605). However, in Peugeot 505 Africans still produced, to meet the market demand that never subsided.

Overall, the prestige of the Peugeot 505 in many countries quite well not only in France and Germany, where the Peugeot 505 estate (station wagon) was used as an ambulance, hearse, police cars, military vehicles, and as a "road maintenance vehicle." In the city of New York City, Peugeot 505s are used to reinforce the fleet of taxis. In Africa because of toughness, the Peugeot 505 is known as the "Work Horse of Africa"
