Peugeot 505 Sedan, Car Pictures

The Peugeot 505 is a classic car. The Peugeot 505 was in many respects one of the last of its kind at a time, into the mainstream (as opposed to the prestige-) European manufacturers began to front-wheel-drive family cars, Peugeot has decided to rear wheel drive 505, the ontinuation the long tradition of family with fixed Peugeot 403, 404 and 504th.
The same technique was used as the 504, with independent rear on most saloon cars while still very practical to use a live rear axle. Choice of hand, but as time went on the 505 offered more power, luxury and economy. The 2.2 GTi model offers better performance and a luxurious interior, then, four-cylinder turbo and 2.8 V6 models. And of course there was the turbo-charged diesel with 2 / 5 GTD GTD between cooler and offer more power, in fact Peugeot was the first manufacturer to provide turbo-diesel cars, which we must always be grateful. The 505 qualities were highly valued, not only in Europe but also in Africa and Latin America. Excellent ride and handling are very well suited for harsh conditions in many countries, where they continue to give sterling service.Production of the 505 is no longer in France in 1992, but also in other markets sometime thereafter. It was never directly replaced, but still a very popular car, the last of the old line.

Giugiaro Hybrid Concept Car and Pictures

We don't know why Giugiaro named this after a long-defunct builder of idiosyncratic British sports cars, but the Frazer Nash concept is looking to become the world's fastest hybrid with a 186 MPH top speed.

Aside from a car which looks more Lamborghini than Targa Florio, the Frazer Nash Concept has a central boast of "World's Fastest Hybrid" with a claimed top speed of 186 MPH. Sort of an odd and probably specific claim around a traditional gasoline-electric passenger category since KERS equipped F1 cars will probably be kinda fast and there have been some pretty quick land speed record hybrids. Semantics aside, the Frazer Nash Concept will debut next month at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, where it will compete against the Rinspeed iCharge for most lauded one-off engineering exercises
Driving excitement and hybrid power are concepts rarely uttered in the same breath, but Giugiaro is promising the fastest hybrid in the world with a concept set to make its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. A new drawing of the concept leaked today reveals what it will look like.

So far information is scarce, with just a few hints on Giugiaro's site, along with a preview image. A full-on shot of the car leaked today, however, ruining the teasing aspect of Giugiaro's presentation. The photo reveals a car that looks much like the Quaranta concept from last year's Geneva Motor Show, which was itself promised to be powered by a hybrid powertrain.

Rumors of a Wankel rotary engine powering a generator have emerged, though the Quaranta was based around a 3.3L V6 petrol engine and two electric motors rated at 268hp (200kW) and 212lb-ft (288Nm) of torque together. The use of a Wankel seems an odd choice - though they are volumetrically efficient, they tend to use a lot of fuel for a given power output. There's also talk of a pure electric-drive system, says Automotive News Europe, with an electric motor on each wheel providing full-time AWD and a plug-in hybrid system similar to that of the Chevy Volt.Whatever is powering it, the hybrid drivetrain would push the car to a claimed 4.05 second 0-62mph (0-100km/h) time. The powertrain layout also makes the car four-wheel drive, since the engine powers one axle, and each motor powers one of the remaining wheels.Emissions are targeted at 50g/km CO2, or about half the output of the latest generation of hybrid econo-cars like the 2010 Toyota Prius or the 2009 Honda Insight.It's likely that the car to be revealed at Geneva is a further-developed version of the Quaranta, possibly even with a fully operational drivetrain. If that is the case, Fisker's Karma will have some serious competition on its hands in terms of outright looks as well as performance.

2009 Audi A5 , Cars Pictures

The Audi A5 and its high performance derivative, are compact executive or entry-level luxury cars. The new Audi A5 makes design statement of sportiness and elegance with its sporty silhouette, its precisely drawn lines powerful surfaces, its expressive front face and equally distinctive tail. The broad, low body measures in at 4.63 meters in length; its overall proportions are defined by the short front overhang and elongated transition from the C pillars to the short tail panel.

The large air inlets and headlights reflect the precision and modern technology of Audi while the LED daytime running lights underscore the sporty look of the A5. The mighty trapezoidal C pillar emphasize the car's sporty appeal and the marked outline of the wheel arches with their curving contours drawn into the wide shoulder line complete the unique look of sculptured dynamics.

Elegance, ergonomics and functionality dominate the interior of the A5, as do the exclusive materials used and the top-of-the-line craftsmanship that is a trademark of Audi. The entire cockpit architecture is clearly focused on the driver. The fourseater offers the generous space of a full-fledged touring car even in the backseat, and its 455 liters of trunk space means there is always room for those few extra shopping bags.

2009 Volvo S80L Sedan Concept Cars

2009 Volvo S80L Sedan Concept Cars, image, photo and picture. The S80L is based on the standard S80 sedan, but been locally tailored and specifically designed for the market in China, where it will also be assembled. It shares all the features with the shorter S80 but stretches an additional 14cm in length, with most of the extra space benefiting rear seat passengers. Five variants will be available, with various trims and engine packages to choose from.

Power of the top model comes from a 285hp (210kW) 3.0L T6 turbocharged inline six-cylinder, and is routed through an automatic gearbox to Volvo's AWD system. The combined drivetrain is enough to scoot the limo to 62mph (100km/h) in just 7.2 seconds - not bad for a fairly large car.

Volvo has enjoyed stable growth since entering China. It released its first locally built model, the S40, in 2006, and today it sells both the S40 and the flagship S80 in the Chinese market.
