Let's make the connection. They're actually giving away. Mark a hot -- models of this card during the president publicly the stuff that's a cool yeah and does the cards -- the V6 -- to the existing give them. Let Daniel have one where they automatic different -- -- -- three engine if you get the manual spelled 99 and unity at the automatic. Little bit -- got more power. That's your full on total power for -- they're both still six point two liter BA seven commitment to music displacement and you're gonna get around pretty quick no matter what. That's big performance cars -- when he took a look at the team and our. Yet that's. Basically ports are celebrating sixty years America's that they take in the -- yet they -- -- 121 pounds that helps part of an avenue Cleveland pounded the radio. But then you'll also get a little bit to make it happen and that's that's -- that's not practical -- an insurance across Africa and they'll -- the aluminum door panels. The into your door panel found -- eleven GT three. Devices may surprise right agreements with lightweight -- in -- -- in more horsepower three and thirty video recorders when he. Yet she'd admitted that after. Lighter and also more expensive 66300. Dollars. If for the sport that's pricey it comes in a really nice. Re -- Beattie who -- Clinton and and green. But that could put out that although you get noticed that the track. Even if -- slow and -- and what you drove a car that -- was mostly fast but the Volvo. Which easy. The C thirty you believe that this is a kind -- -- than working a lot on under an alternative site for and the Jonas. Plug in versions of -- -- different -- cars and -- the preschool on battery electric version. And the working on real production version of this -- to test drive the they're gonna let -- take -- out on the streets background LA you know really nice though like most -- cars -- and push on its -- and it just goes silently -- -- really easy and and actually at the pretty fun handling. Good weight distribution that -- around the corners and you felt was the effect would -- -- global representative in the -- and -- line cursing your interest press read about a hundred miles range. Four hours to recharge okay so that's pretty standard but they -- quoting what believe the idea gets here real -- -- electric cars -- -- there you can enter Dell battery pack which there -- there privacy American battery pack -- -- -- to start a bit -- That's right for America act as we -- its own by now you -- political slop. -- they'll we -- bots no of the day. -- -- Do you don't want although he spent the Arctic at CNET dot -- digging keep track of the horse -- and it is -- government mine emblem resident and they're gonna want we'll write you an episode the next one and take a quick break -- podcast come back with more stuff -- -- auto show.

Packet Arctic -- folks especially since the 28 LA auto show. I'll -- electric cars so Ralph Fort -- is rep for in an EB version would burst from of the test Lemerre. Again this is basically what they're -- that. Vehicle zero. Kind of love glorified test -- -- basically the standard -- for with some minor. You know styling quick -- Within the power train been basically built by Tesla that you would in fact received that the uniform buttons for -- drive. 00 in his journal roadster. The idea being that these are gonna be a limited run -- test -- that will run through 2011. And -- and suites will we should actually see a more finalized version of that that the probably gonna have been even further tweets and maybe even the specific to the vehicle power train. And then maybe some. Even more wilder. It's different -- and you. -- and so this is a pretty quick turnaround from -- -- total investment which was this past summer right. Fifty million dollars exactly though he's an exceptional work and ended when when you have a modular power dreamland is really easy to content. Now look like a pretty good card and when I saw I mean in dollars look like. Midsize SUV. Did this when I mean I haven't seen rapport nightly network brigade commander of we're gonna -- -- But they're still quoting a hundred mile range under regular driving condition that not be here real world conditions they were emphasizing on that in a similar in kind of packaging to that was the Toronto crossed -- -- way. From Nissan kind of in the same category I guess is one of chunky kind of you know crossover -- vehicles but this is they say the first -- all wheel drive. It's -- all wheel drive crossover convertible. -- all those conditions to get a lot of them are. -- -- need a bit of well rules -- the first -- -- -- right yeah well what it lets us at all wheel drive right but they did end up I gotta tell yet I think they got it and there. It's really got a quirky. You know like Sony look ugly cars Friday at the audio quality -- -- -- but green but yeah it's just like they didn't. Which will -- what they cut off at the back it looks as though they left some of the seat filler sticking up is if I had done it in my backyard that's good -- -- -- -- it is -- to -- the source way I don't like -- -- -- but super exclusive photograph through the roof and it's and it's not -- I didn't see an improvement out of it -- -- over the room. I am PT cruiser convertible needs and not cool but we did that beauty contest but there are other things that I think it's convertible its crossover and you still have the high ride height I think the fact get the wind in your hair and you can see above everybody there's something I think intoxicating about privilege rule over -- you -- have gotten good at. I was really cool was up from -- -- -- lot of the seats for helium for the carmakers they've got typical smart fit now -- you can put an app on your Smartphone. And you can actually sit at your seat for the first time properly. Because it receives do we get these -- got a million buttons and I don't do them. I can get I think it's comfortable but I have it set up right so you punch in your a picture of yourself sideways. You -- you move your arm like this so -- -- barometer configure how long apartments. And then you punch in your gender your what -- your weights in your height. And that it sets up the support via Bluetooth. Wirelessly that you would really do the -- he's been around -- -- content -- considered itself flight data and what -- -- -- that setting up mice connected to -- also perhaps more so if you want a good idea of performance seat that is going to do at the Mercedes dynamics C big grips you in terms of the stuff you could download that and attitude now. And the phones -- barometer would. Since the turn until the -- we're turning put on the bolster. Net while cars use the -- you see that I throw you detect your settings on one -- Walk in any card as they load my hat is the key thing that vehicle because there's no card does that cross brand right.
