Top speed is more than 100 mph.

Facts About The Famous Alfa Romeo BAT series cars

The famed Alfa Romeo BAT series cars were concepts created through a collaboration between Alfa, Italdesign, and Bertone. BAT stands for "Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica", and these vehicles were far more than just stylistic exercises.

                               Front View of 1953 Alfa Romeo BAT 5 Concept Car
They were intended to explore the aerodynamic effects of fins on automobiles, and one of the advantages that emerged was enhanced stability at high speed. The drag coefficient is a still remarkable 0.19 Cd, which is impressive by any standard. Although powered by a modest 90 hp motor, the BATs could do over 125 mph thanks to the advanced aerodynamics.


                                          1955 Alfa Romeo BAT 9 Concept Car  
 The BAT 5Õs wild fins design reflected the world's growing obsession with outer space and speed. Classic cars like this were on display at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, California.
                                                         1953 Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 5
Mechanically based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, the Alfa Romeo Bertone BAT 11 pay artful homage to the fabulous Alfa Romeo BAT cars of the early to mid-1950s. There is a chance this vehicle may see limited production. Exciting cars like this were on display at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.

DRIVING PLEASURE : RENAULT ALPINE A110-50

          
       In 2012, THE ICONIC ALPINE A110 TURNED 50. TO CELEBRATE THE EVENT,  RENAULT DESIGNED A CONCEPT CAR : RENAULT ALPINE A110-50 
DEDICATED TO PERFORMANCE AND DRIVING PLEASURE.
This movie was shot with Jean "Jeannot" Ragnotti,who is a French former rally driver for Renault in the World Rally Championship. He conquered the Monte Carlo Rally in 1981,[1] what was the first turbo victory in the history of the WRC, alongside compatriot Jean-Marc Andrié against the might of the ultimate four-wheel-drive upstart, the Audi Quattro. In the following season, he took his Renault 5 Turbo to victory at the Tour de Corse. The Maxi version of the same Renault 5 was to reign again on the asphalt stages of European rallying, when in 1985, Ragnotti claimed the Tour de Corse again with Group B rallying at its zenith; a win that came on debut of Renault 5 Maxi Turbo. The 1985 Rothmans Tour de Corse would also prove to be a tragic affair after the fatal crash of Attilio Bettega on SS4 (Zerubia) of the event.In the 1990s, Ragnotti continued to drive for Renault, this time in their front-wheel drive Clio Maxi.

First Corvettes Rolling Off Assembly Line

The very first Corvettes roll off the assembly line at the Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan. The Corvette was the first consumer automobile with an all-fiberglass body, originally selling for $3,250.

1953 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

The Corvette made its debut in 1953, and is widely considered "America's Sports Car". Its origins date back to the end of World War II, when returning GIs sang the praises of the lithe sports cars they had seen overseas, such as MGs, Jaguars, and Alfa Romeos. GM designer Harley Earl, always quick to sense a trend, convinced GM to create its own original sports car. Earl chose fiberglass for the body, making Chevrolet the first big company to use the new miracle material in a mass production vehicle. Mechanically, the early 'Vettes used mostly off the shelf components, including a modified "Blue Flame" six cylinder engine. Corvette prototypes made a huge impression at the auto shows, and from this, a legend was born.

Bentley - Power On Ice - the ultimate winter driving experience

In the month of January and February 2015,as the ice thickens on the lakes of northern Finland, a very special circuit begins to take shape. On the edge of the Arctic Circle, close to the country’s border with Russia, a vast and frozen surface is turned into a driving course unlike any other. It is the home of Bentley Power on Ice, the driving experience created especially for Bentley in this remote and beautiful part of the world, which – in the middle of winter – becomes the perfect playground for an all-wheel-drive vehicle.. This year the Power on Ice 2015 Bentley line-up will have the breath-taking new Continental GT3-R. Participants will get an unprecedented first drive in Bentley’s most dynamic and powerful luxury road car ever.
With two full days of driving and tuition from a dedicated instructor, you will see that – even on sheet ice – there’s plenty of speed to be found. Especially when you’re in the driver’s seat of a powerful Bentley fitted with studded tyres. In other words, ice driving provides the thrills of an extreme sport, from the comfort of a hand-stitched, heated leather seat. Finland has produced some of the greatest drivers the world has seen: rally champions, F1 champions and champion ice racers. Among them is four-time WRC champion Juha Kankkunen, who personally designs the Bentley Power on Ice tracks, each of which is ‘shaved’ into the icy surface using specialist equipment.
At Bentley Power on Ice, guests also have the chance to experience a fast lap with Juha. After all the driving, you can make the most of the stunning location with a range of activities. For example, there’s snowmobiling, ice karting and a nighttime husky sled adventure. You could also enjoy a traditional Finnish smoke sauna, and dinner at an historic reindeer farm. Register your interest using the form below or call the Bentley Driving Team on +44 (0)1675 445 945 for more information or to book your place.
