About BMW X6 ActiveHybrid Reviews

When you first hear about a 480 HP hybrid, you think it’s just a joke. That’s because the general opinion regarding hybrids is some sort of slow, frugal machines that save the planet one polar bear or baby seal at a time. Well, BMW thought otherwise, and decided to create ‘the most powerful hybrid in the world”, the X6 ActiveHybrid. We drove it around this summer, so let’s see what we found out:About BMW X6 ActiveHybrid Reviews

Looking from the outside, it’s hard to spot the differences between this beast and a regular X6. The trained eye will notice the power dome in the hood, the special Titanium Silver paint, as well as the special 20-inch Aero wheels which lower drag. Of course, you will also spot the ActiveHybrid badges, which tell the world that even though you have a monster of a car, the aforementioned polar bears or baby seals are still being rescued.

On the inside, you’ll still have a tough time spotting the differences between a regular X6 and the hybrid version. The only major difference is in the lower part of the tachometer, where instead of the active fuel consumption, you now have a charge indicator for the battery pack that powers the electric motors.

Besides that, however, everything’s normal, including the lovely cup holders. One thing still puzzles me though, why doesn’t the X6 have any dedicated handles on top of the doors. The driver may hold onto the steering wheel in tight maneuvers, but due to the 480 HP always lurking under the bonnet, the passengers might want something else to hold onto, not just the handles in the door covers.


On the road
This is the part I’ve been waiting for the most. The X6 ActiveHybrid has 3 engines: a 400 HP and 440 lb-ft of torque twin-turbo 4.4-liter gasoline one, as seen on the X6 xDrive50i, but with slight alterations, and two electric motors, capable of 91 and 86 HP, respectively.

For those who passed basic calculus, you’ll probably figure out that 400 plus 91 plus 86 doesn’t exactly equal 480. This is because the engines aren’t always running on maximum capacity. On speeds under 25 mph (40 km/h), the gasoline engine doesn’t do anything, and the motors are providing zero emissions travel. If you step on the gas a bit more firmly, the massive twin-turbo 4.4-liter springs to life, growling under the hood.


You get used to this sensation pretty easily, and it really puts a huge smile on your face the fact that you can drive around slowly, and at just one press of the gas, you’re emitting sounds worthy of a motorsport race. The electric motors tend to help out in the acceleration department, or anytime you need a bit more torque. When the car is cruising at highway speeds, the electric motors are on full capacity, while the gasoline engine gets used less, in order to reduce consumption.

The technology sounds impressive, but how does the X6 ActiveHybrid handle on the street? Sadly, not all that great. When I heard about the power output, I was expecting something a lot more exciting. Even the 7 Series, which is practically a boat on wheels and has less power, was more fun that this one.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s powerful, the engine sounds great, but you kinda expect something more. In overtakes, if you don’t put the gearbox in sport mode, you don’t even feel you’re driving a 480 HP car. Also, the suspension system is a bit stiff, especitially for an SUV, but if you think about it makes sense, because it’s needed to keep the car under control.

When I took it around the city, the reading was around 15-16 mpg (US). When I took on the highway and national roads, with plenty of overtakes, you would’ve thought that the gas tank sprang a leak, as the average didn’t get better than 11 mpg.

Needless to say, it’s not even close to the official fuel estimates. After three days and 620 miles (1,000 km) traveled, the average was 13.8 mpg. While some may say that it’s a lot, for a 2.5 ton beast, with a 0 to 62 mph time of 5.6 seconds and 480 HP, it’s a bit decent.

Even though my expectations were quite high, the BMW X6 ActiveHybrid is a pretty sensational car, with a great interior. Still, factoring in the fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions (which aren’t low at all), the ActiveHybrid badging only shaves off a bit of the guilt you will have for buying an SUV in order to save the planet. Basically, and without bad intentions, this is more of a proof of concept for BMW, made for bragging rights, than a real hybrid for the future.

Pricing is also a real headache. In our country, the X6 ActiveHybrid starts at $111,499 (without value added tax), and the model we had was a whopping $148,000, a whole lot more than an xDrive50i or a heck of a lot more than an xDrive35i model. In the USA, pricing starts at $88,900 MSRP.

Still, even though I find it useless, I’m glad it was built and that I had a chance to drive it.

We liked:
- the briliant sound of the gasoline engine;
- the overall look, more aggressive than the regular X6;
- the handling outside the city, on the open road.

We didn’t like:
- the huge price;
- the bad fuel average;
- the handling inside the city.

A Great Top Five NHRA Championship 2011

NHRA Championship
A Great Top Five NHRA Championship 2011, take a look :

A Great Top Five

Of the top five, two cars have lagged a bit: Larry Dixon and Spencer Massey. Dixon hasn't been to a final in awhile - yes, that sounds strange but true. Since winning Denver a couple months ago, Massey has only one semifinal and no finals. This is hard to do but I'll check them off the list of possible champion.

It gets tougher than splitting hairs now. Many runner-ups but then a first round loss at Indy makes me think this may not be Schumacher's year so I'll have to eliminate Tony.

Del Worsham versus Antron Brown. Worsham has been the best car over the course of the year. Brown has been the best car over the last two months - he has won three of the last four events including the last two. I believe we have the answer with the Indy final between these two … which Brown won.

So Antron Brown is our Top Fuel champion for 2011. Much will probably be made of the fact that Antron Brown is a black American and the first to win Top Fuel. Does it matter? Not to people in drag racing who don't pay attention to what someone's color is. So we'll leave that to others.

Brown is one of only a select group who have won meets in two different pro classes (several wins in Pro Stock Motorcycle). He will have to thank his two crew chiefs, Brian Corradi and Mark Oswald plus the car's owner, Don Schumacher who had the foresight to see Brown, the bike rider, as a Top Fuel pilot and eventual champion.

It will make for a great story. Don't agree? Okay, let the playoffs begin and we'll find out. Happy racing..!!


Funny Car have original connections to California

funny car
Funny Car have original connections to California. Drag racing got its start in the desert salt flats of Southern California and the state became the birthplace of drag racing .
Late in the '60s, Funny Car developed and by the '70s, arguably were the most popular cars in the sport. Advertising not only said 'Sunday, Sunday, Sunday' but also giant fields of Funny Cars appeared with additional advertising stating '64 Funny Cars'. And I saw these huge fields in person - it was amazing.

Whether that's the reason or not, the current drivers in Funny Car have original connections to California. And there seems to be more Funny Car drivers who come from California, with many still living here, than any other class. Here are the ones we know about who are currently in the points standings.

Mike Neff - Neff grew up in Hemet, which is about as close as you can get to the desert without officially being in the desert. He worked with other Californians like Larry Minor, Joe Gibbs, Cory McClenathan, Gary Scelzi and of course, John Force.

Robert Hight - If you didn't know already, Hight is the son-in-law of John Force. Hight is originally from Alturas, which is in the far northwest of the state. He still lives in Anaheim Hills.

Jack Beckman - Originally from San Fernando and the Southern California area, he was introduced to the sport by his uncle John, who I happen to know.

Cruz Pedregon - From Torrance, Cruz is the son of the famous early dragster driver Flaming Frank Pedregon who was a friend of my father. You can add Cruz's younger brother Tony to the list, too.

Ron Capps - Originally from San Luis Obispo on the Central Coast (where I now live), from what I know, he still lives in Southern California.

John Force - Bell Gardens is Force's birthplace and he still lives in Yorba Linda - and next door to where my cousin lived for many years.

Actually when you look up the older drivers and those who have retired, the list grows. Of course, other classes have Californians too but Funny Car has by far the biggest field. And if it seems we're just all one big family, we are (see related articles).

Again, whether the Funny Car fever or the movie Funny Car Summer back in the '70s created this phenomenon is for sociologist to figure out but Funny Car drivers come from the Golden State.

Hey man, I know dude, maybe it's like the laid back California attitude that does it? Cool dude.

Bugatti Veyron Fastest ,Fantastic and Most Expensive Car In the World

Fastest ,Fantastic and Most Expensive Car In the World Bugatti Veyron . One car that is favored by the high and mighty in the higher echelons of society is the Bugatti Veyron. One thing worthy noting is that, this car is not only the world’s fastest car, but also the most expensive and bestselling car in the world. This beautiful car is assembled at Molsheim in Alsace (France) by Bugatti Automobiles in collaboration with The Volkswagen Group. This car which measures 4,462 mm length by 1,998 mm width by 1,159 mm height and weighs 1,888 kg is a 2-door coupé with a targa top.

World’s Fastest Car

The chariot is a display of power on wheels with its powerful 8.0 litre, sixteen cylinder turbocharged 1,001 metric horsepower engine which enables it to sustain a permanent all-wheel drive through its 7-speed transmission gear system and can attain a top speed of 431.07 km/h (Bugatti Veyron Super Sport).

The manufacturer claims that it can accelerate from a speed of 80 km/h to 312 km/h in 22 seconds and also decelerate from 400 km/h to a standstill in 10 seconds within 500 meters. This top speed is however limited electronically by the producer to 415 km/h to protect the car’s tires. At this speed, a lot of heat is generated which led to the installation of a total of ten radiators with 3 for air-to-liquid intercoolers, 3 for engine radiators, 1 for air conditioning, 1 for the oil radiator, 1 for the differential oil radiator and 1for the engine oil radiator (Most modern vehicles have only one radiator).


The Bugatti Veyron is acclaimed as the world’s fastest road-legal car. At a speed of 220 km/h, the car’s hydraulics are automatically designed to lower the car’s ground clearance to an average of 9cm (Its normal ground clearance is 12.5 cm) which simultaneously deploys a wing and a spoiler to improve the vehicle’s maneuverability that helps to keep the vehicle on the road. For top speed driving, a special key is flipped on the left of the seat which checks car’s conditions before retracting the rear spoiler while shutting the front air ducts. The ground clearance then automatically drops to 6.5cm (almost hugging the ground for greater stability) before the car accelerates towards the 400km top speed where it consumes 45,000 litres of air during each minute (It is claimed that a normal man uses this quantity every 4 days).

This admirable car which has customizable interiors and exterior colours was designed by JozefKaban of the Volkswagen group and dedicated to Pierre Veyron (A French racing driver) has in the past been named Car of the Decade (2000–2009) by Top Gear (BBC TV).

Most Expensive and Best Selling Car

With a price tag of $2,500,000 (Bugatti Veyron Super Sport) this chariot is far beyond the reach of many common citizens thus, making it a reserve for the rich.

The Bugatti EB110 Turbo Flashback Reviews

The Bugatti EB110 Turbo
The Bugatti EB110 Turbo Flashback Reviews. The Bugatti EB110 is a mid-engine sports car from Bugatti Automobili SpA. It was apparent on September 15, 1991, in both Versailles and in advanced of the Grande Arche at La Défense in Paris, France, absolutely 110 years afterwards Ettore Bugatti's birth.

The car has a 60-valve, quad-turbo V12 powering all four auto through a six-speed gearbox. The 3.5 L (3499 cc) agent has a bore of 81 mm (3.2 in) and a achievement of 56.6 mm (2.23 in) and is able of 553 hp (412 kW; 561 PS) at 8000 rpm. Acceleration to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3 seconds, and the GT has a top acceleration of 215 mph (346 km/h).[1]

The Bugatti EB110 Turbo

The car uses a bifold wishbone suspension, with the anatomy congenital by Aérospatiale, an aircraft company, and fabricated from carbon fibre. Equipped with Gandini's acclaimed appropriation scissor doors, it has a bottle agent awning that provides a appearance of the V12 agent forth with a speed-sensitive cyberbanking rear accession that can be aloft at the flick of a switch. The shift-knob is placed afterpiece to the disciplinarian so that beneath time is taken to shift. Five pre-production prototypes with aluminum anatomy were built, followed by eight with blended chassis. Following these, it is believed that alone 95 GT and 31 SS accumulation models were constructed.

In 1992, a lighter and added able archetypal with 603 hp (450 kW; 611 PS) at 8250 rpm, the EB110 SS (SuperSport) was introduced. This car is able of 216 mph (348 km/h) and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds.

Early in 1994 Formula One disciplinarian Michael Schumacher purchased a banana-yellow EB 110 Super Sport, giving the aggregation a abundant accord of publicity.[2] Derek Hill, son of American Formula One Champion Phil Hill, was one of the three drivers on a aggregation that competed with an EB 110 in the United States at the 1996 24 Hours of Daytona.

Hard times hit the aggregation in 1995 and, as aftereffect of administrator Artioli's over aggressive acquirement of Lotus in accession to the company's adventure to advance the EB112 four aperture car, the aggregation was bankrupt. Dauer Antagonism GmbH of Nuremberg, Germany, bought the semi-finished EB 110 cars in the accumulation bulb additional the genitalia account through the defalcation trustee. The actual anatomy and a adaptation of the agent were after developed by B Engineering into their Edonis sports car.

Despite after antagonism for Ferrari from 1996 advanced and a aerial contour blow with a barter the antecedent year (for which he abhorrent the braking system) Schumacher connected to absorb the EB110SS. Schumacher awash the car in 2003 to Modena Motorsport, a Ferrari barn specialising in service, chase alertness and sales of archetypal Ferraris in Germany.
