Mazda Shinari Concept
Mazda has releases its future design direction with the sleek Shinari concept car. which will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September. The stylish four-door coupe previews the look of the next generation of Mazdas and ushers in a new design language.
With the launch of the new concept, Mazda also announced that the company’s future design language will be described by the word Kodo, which is Japanese for soul of motion. Talking about the new design language, Ikuo Maeda, general manager of Mazda Motor Corp.’s design division said:"this design will lead to the next generation of Mazda design and will lead to other elements."
The coupe shows the future face of Mazda's family of vehicles -- an aluminum signature wing, the line that runs through the headlights and under the grille -- as well as the overall styling trend for future production models.
The Shinari as a four-door coupe is a clear signal that Mazda is targeting the premium segment where similar vehicles such as the Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche Panamera and upcoming Fisker Karma already reside. In order to do so Mazda officials ackowledged that interior quality levels must improve.
The company has not released any official information on the Mazda Shinari yet. When it will, we'll be able to show you high resolution images of the Mazda Shinari and to offer a full set of details on the new concept.Mazda Shinari ConceptMazda Shinari ConceptMazda Shinari ConceptSource :These are the first pictures and details of a new supercar from fledgling Canadian company De Macross Motors Corp (DMMC), which was set up in 2009. It's called the GT1, and CAR has been given the lowdown on this new supercar.
The power of the De Macross GT1 will come from a 5.4-litre V8 engine produced by North American company Roush Yates Racing Engines. If you're not familiar with this company, you just have to know they also provide the engines for Ford's NASCAR activators. This means the De Macross GT1 will have some serious muscle under that skin.
Performance figures aren't forthcoming yet, but with a chassis made from carbonfibre and aluminium, don't expect it to lose out at the lights too often. De Macross claims the GT1 will be 'comparable to other supercars in this elite category such as the Pagani Zonda' in performance and price.
De Macross hasn’t released the performance and pricing features for the vehicle, but the company claims that these will be comparable to what the mighty Pagani Zonda offers.
We can expect a first full-scale GT1 to be completed in November 2010, with testing to follow. First orders will be taken ’somewhere in 2011′ and DMMC reckons on selling around 200 cars maximum.De Macross GT1De Macross GT1De Macross GT1De Macross GT1De Macross GT1De Macross GT1
