The trademark BMW i Black Belt running from the bonnet over the roof to the car’s rear end is now complemented by A-pillars and roof lines that also sport a black finish. The range of paint finishes for the remaining body elements has been extended to include Melbourne Red metallic and Imperial Blue metallic. Besides these two new additions, customers can also choose from the non-metallic shades Capparis White and Fluid Black as well as Protonic Blue metallic and Mineral Grey metallic.
Libby Wade BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:21. BMW Motorsport returns to Le Mans with the FIA WEC in 2018. The last time a BMW race car featured on the grid was back in 2011, with the BMW M3 GT2. One year prior to that, the Jeff Koons’ (USA) BMW M3 GT2 Art Car had caught the eye, as it wrote the latest chapter in the story of the BMW Art Car Collection at Le Mans. Among the BMW Art Cars that had started previously at Le Mans were Alexander Calder’s (USA, 1975) BMW 3.0 CSL, the BMW 320i designed by Roy Lichtenstein (USA, 1977) and Andy Warhol’s (USA, 1979) BMW M1. BMW Motorsport‘s greatest sporting hour in Le Mans came in 1999, when Yannick Dalmas (FRA), Joachim Winkelhock (GER) and Pierluigi Martini (ITA) took overall victory in a BMW V12 LMR. The McLaren F1 GTR, powered by a BMW engine, had previously triumphed at the "Circuit de la Sarthe" in 1995. The first time a BMW car started at the 24 Hours of Le Mans was back in 1939, when a BMW 328 claimed a class victory after 236 laps of racing. After 1972, BMW cars regularly lined up at the endurance classic.
Eleanor Norton BMW, 2017-10-14 15:16:14. The driving experience in the BMW i models has played no small part in the growing appeal and popularity of electric mobility. Following systematic refinement, the BMW eDrive technology aboard the new BMW i3 and new BMW i3s enables drivers to enjoy locally emission-free mobility with wonderfully instantaneous power delivery, efficient use of energy and an optimised range for a level of everyday practicality that even extends beyond the demands of purely urban travel. Both models draw their energy from the lithium-ion high-voltage battery developed by the BMW Group with a capacity of 94 ampere hours (Ah) or 33 kilowatt hours (kWh). A range extender engine can be ordered as an option for both the new BMW i3 and the new BMW i3s.
Caitlin Duncan Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:08. Infusing life into the body of the car: this is the core concept of KODO design. But expressing this sense of vitality can be achieved in a number of different ways. Bringing out the beauty of natural phenomena through exquisite, ever-changing patterns of light is an aesthetic that is unique to the art of Japan. A living drama is created from the dance of light and shadow as they change from moment to moment, and the Japanese are particularly attuned to these delicate transformations. This interplay of light and shade, together with the notion of "the beauty of empty space," has been incorporated into the side view of this model. The reflection of light over the surface flows linearly with the movement of the car, creating a vehicle that seems truly alive. The predominant highlight on the body shoulder is strong and sharply-styled, emphasizing a powerful physique, while softer, more elegant light patterns shimmer across the empty spaces extending over the vehicle; the combination of these two different light effects brings the Mazda Vision Coupe truly to life.
Paige Dodd Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:06. The impression is of a space that reaches ahead as the car navigates the road. The interior of the Mazda Vision Coupe, just like its exterior, has a satisfyingly deep and three-dimensional feel; its lines run smoothly from front to back, exuding a sense of speed. Structural forms such as the center console, door trim and instrument panel intersect with one another without touching, creating a sense of ma inside the car. The spaces that are created encourage the flow of air throughout the car, and the three-dimensional framework makes occupants feel safely ensconced without any sense of confinement. In recent times, car interiors have come to be dominated by large displays. Although considerable amounts of information need to be supplied to the person operating the car, these screens can easily become a barrier that blocks the driver view. This model features a see-through screen developed by Mazda; it functions as a display only at those times when it is required, creating an interior space with perfect visibility for the driver needs.

Paige Dodd Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:07. In this model, we have sought to create a beauty that special to cars-with a cabin further to the back and forming a single smooth line, based on the "golden ratio" of classic coupe proportions. The silhouette creates the feel of a high-performance machine, with a hint of powerful forward momentum. In creating the form of the body, the focus has been on stripping away everything that is unnecessary. The sense of rhythm and movement displayed by Mazda cars in recent years has been transformed into a simple three-dimensional shape that aims to embody a "less is more" aesthetic. From the Mazda badge on the front to the badge on the back, a single powerful axis runs right through the car, evoking the look and feel of supple steel, with all the car movements centering on this central vector. The result is a form that is extraordinarily simple yet full of a sense of latent speed: the "one motion form" that is the outstanding feature of this model. Having created a four-door coupe as our basic framework, we have invested tremendous time and care on the bodywork, especially the play of light across its surface.

A 15.5% increase in torsional rigidity over the current model reduces flexing that might otherwise slow the vehicle response to steering input from the driver. Increased use of ultra-high strength materials including 1,180MPa steel on the A-pillars and 980MPa steel on the side sills and B-pillars. To enable stress-free conversation in the cabin, great effort was devoted to reducing the low-frequency road noise heard when driving on coarse surfaces as well as high-frequency wind and tire noise when travelling at higher speeds. Compared to the outgoing model, the all-new Mazda CX-5 achieves around 10% clearer conversation levels in the cabin at a cruising speed of 100km/h and reduces noise by some 1.3dB when traveling on rough roads.
Eleanor Norton Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:05. The SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are likewise a product of Mazda non-stop efforts to continue advancing the Jinba-Ittai driving sensation. Like the SKYACTIV-D, this means smoothly delivering the ideal linear response to driver input, behaving precisely as intended and providing the corresponding feedback. The engines are mated to six-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatics or SKYACTIV-MT manual transmissions. i-stop, idle stop system providing some of the fastest restarts around, is standard equipment, while i-ELOOP, Mazda unique brake energy regeneration system, is available for all powerplants except the 145PS versionof the SKYACTIV-G 2.0. Diesel-powered Mazda 6 wagons are also offered with Mazda intelligent i-ACTIV AWD system, which features a front-slip detection warning system.
Niamh Hart Mazda, 2017-10-31 21:30:05. Short for "Intelligent Energy Loop", Mazda fuel-saving i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system was the world first such passenger car technology to utilise a capacitor to store electricity recovered during braking. Mazda focused on the recurring deceleration and acceleration cycle of everyday driving conditions. Determining that a typical deceleration phase lasts only about 10 seconds, the company adopted an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) to quickly capture and temporarily store the recovered electricity rather than a dedicated lead-acid starter battery or lithium-ion unit.
