Car Tech Live 206: 2011 Geneva auto show editionFerrari FF, Lamborghini Aventador, BMW Connected Drive and the Alfa Romeo 4C are just a few of our favorites from Geneva we cover this week.
-- -- -- -- -- Cunningham special edition of car tech live from. In Geneva yes 2011 G products this is always one apartment exploded a lot of stuff here it's easy to get around. Yeah everything's on one big chill it's our huge show but it's really compact and -- together and how we can tell from what you look. But. And his life. The festival of cars and many of which ended things you never received US so yeah without a -- companies to you tuner -- -- European style they take. The cities and that's LS and slamming -- -- about that. It read but I doubt way to protect your classic cars with a 100000 dollar car and -- -- body -- -- -- gonna -- yeah crazy we've got we. We've got growth over the planet -- Germany there's -- us. System and back him Hammond does some interesting things over there yet but millions over there that aren't Mansour is a way that there they put carbon fiber on every -- treatment. It's like it's like -- one gone nuts. And it fiber everywhere the the tenets of the budget like the best -- -- investors around it was not hearing the one that premise document lines as the Rolls Royce. Phantom electric. Oh yeah that was. Such a bit surprised that rolls -- exit -- and electric car did not only electric car but their biggest car detonated the with the fans I'm not the smaller -- -- -- the -- weighs almost 6000 pounds cameras currently granola driven electrically. And they -- -- the point when they're talking about this car that. This concept is really not only the content the city to try it out is also see the customers. Will Wright and we're watching except something like that -- -- has always been about being majestic power and engineering a big engine. And parents and -- 196. -- -- Nickel manganese. Batteries I've never heard of before. But it's it's the biggest battery pack ever -- in a -- car and it's entirely with the engine used game which is a good thing -- -- -- -- -- the big hole. -- these batteries and drives to voters. -- these rear wheel drive. And -- get this big show each class door on the single panel you plug in the charger and see your. Your lights and there's been elected but they can also -- actually invective targeting at a panel on the bottom. So I -- operator unconcerned Rolls -- drive -- disk drive over the panel and walk away because there -- according to the -- over brings it right this -- -- -- so you can look at your binoculars to -- detergent lights at an art and imagery to drive but that's just like eight hours charging time yet -- a hundred analysts think it's got -- 120 miles of range there's -- about a hundred kilometers so impressive -- biggest. Most homes electric car we've ever seen in every dimension what. For as little compromise haven't got the same key cabin appointments the leather of the luxury -- -- it solves. There -- -- Kevin is something called the Hyundai dynamic clustering engines look at this yeah this is it receives a Hyundai had a couple of technology demonstrations insert. Diving cars just sort of concepts that what dashboards to look like. And this one had -- out LED -- LCD. This in the closet what we saw on the jaguar result life -- and -- they had. -- three different modes that he could change to between one had a route guidance if -- under navigation which showed the average guidance in the in the cluster little digital -- -- -- speed on top -- courses at the corner. -- well yeah really just the map like right in front of you which is very community that look over here. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But it's -- it to head eco display which each -- -- -- at an ecological you -- now officially you're driving and it -- -- coaching things for you to tell you like what to do drive better. Give and take what that is the performance load power returns everything read a book of sorts and it even put the -- GeForce -- front and center. So it totally changes the context like any good piece of electronics. It's good consistently aware software there's -- -- everyone does that the industry. Yeah well they're flexible and not pretty at public pretty good that it actually -- -- -- he -- a really bad and that the -- talk to use that code to be acquired by maybe 2014 or so. That's part. Space vehicle -- about they're much more pedestrian but I think it's gonna be red hot nothing really high tech about it is the gulf Caprio. -- I think. That -- -- -- blast from the past that are almost have very bloodless and we'll. When a look at -- -- -- you didn't -- one you know someone it's oh -- they're all -- Matt -- a woman who don't -- you use it. Because I say chick car go away from Elizabeth VW -- visited him to be known yet. Apparently regardless it's a good looking -- and now it's. Now that's a very different -- style to them the an old one. The the bad guys -- of the does -- up that the go all the way to the back believes a little bit of metal they're little and things like. And that's that little bit different and have the more homework. Sedan like -- flight gap top. -- you when it's up -- -- -- kind of got some hard panels and it's not totally candidacy but when it all the way down you've got this pulls down almost completely into the body. Which is really tight -- -- want to investigate you and it's got this hard shell and it doesn't impede on the phone. Very much that they say it doesn't -- -- -- -- I don't think it's pretty -- about his. Gap in access to the targets the -- Katzenbach that you you got -- -- into this and get on your back got to give it. Think that you're not gonna slated they -- -- golf -- in there anyway I like an apparent as you get that it's open door down there but whatever it's. It's pretty cool and I think it's really clean look -- and what's coming in the US the personal. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Either you I'll be in there -- I added 2.5 liter gas engine you have nothing yet -- pretty pristine -- gas and it's pretty pedestrian but you know. What sort of try to expand their market in the US they only have to convertibles right now which is the -- in the -- -- convert any of dozens -- states. As they gotta have something -- -- the -- as far as most. Our answer Wasilla and five or 600 a month to -- an -- that's not a lot with a company that size and US and the -- -- well known people are buying golf so it's like pulling off a long it's been gone for nine years. We'll get back -- it super cars go completely opposite way that definitely about a new Ferrari. The overall we talked about a car tech live reports. At Baghdad four -- two door -- GT kind of style so it. Station wagon -- -- very unique looking car shooting rate break if they get there in Europe via. But now the gap Lambeau kind of similar configuration -- -- our -- event in order to replace is the first Chicago it's a new top of the line. All wheel drive of course have been giving us for a couple models now. Help T 700 dashboards and technical name this is that's everything you did it didn't hit it at six point five liter V twelve -- -- And the numbers on it through -- 62 point nine samples. The basic that's bad credit and everything -- -- down. That's exactly -- good reasons. This value of that -- really cares and that that Redmond time style in that they launched a lot of the record years ago right right. That's that's incredibly styling involves real edge yet in an area of the month behind the it's -- got them slightly on duty fenders that that. Sort of fighter. He knows in the middle area and it's gonna president we've got these sort of present cutting goals that it's a really -- glamor you need pretty call that mean it looks at a -- was amazed at Baghdad. Big carbon fiber tub and went upstairs to look at that -- their -- They're a little belly to the -- -- -- 300 pounds. -- -- carbon fiber so that enormous piece -- -- like. Percent of the car's weight I had it on for lightweight in this so they they engine on display of energy that's an impressive piece of tech -- talking about -- -- Twin clutch transmission to him in there and and then let me put everything -- -- just doesn't -- the transmission and engine are spun around backwards. The engine -- the back of the -- the transmission also faces that way. This key part of transmissions on your own because that's always read the wait -- is that putting those things that nutrients axle back alleys building that's got a little bit enticed me getting. Still. -- the emergency -- that neither of us. That's an area together we couldn't port but then there's this whole so that pop up -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- About W Israel wants the beat the competitors to -- -- combat -- the on beautiful -- it's like a BM WZ eight compared he had no expensive really nice looking. So the -- is about -- that. It's really it's like the size of -- Lotus -- it's about thirteen feet long. That's right this little compact that carbon fiber body so they they -- -- concept of this part here in -- beautiful red that I wish they'd bring their credit but. Yeah they are gonna bring the stock market being -- that the -- here. But it'll probably go undergo some differences here at Polly -- what I'll be carbon fiber I can't imagine an Internet. And -- -- very high priced now we have heard some of the buzz. Swimmers and when they are gonna bring back the helpless biter but that's not witnesses that -- the hardtop. They might do it spider you might do -- -- -- Opened up version idea but the one they should -- and that -- get a concept. But just a small lightweight nimble sort of just ports start at one point some five leader dyed diesel her out of certain Turbo gasoline engine. -- injections all the latest tech isn't there yet the most at least and -- same guy gal to sixty miles per hour in under five seconds. Not bad things that they can't price to -- -- idea now again concept stage without ever males are kind of a premium models. They'll be up there somewhere but this has. The cards the brand the Fiat boss getting Chrysler -- -- if -- working -- he was talking a few weeks ago when there was a rumor that up. Burn them the excuse that -- VW group thought. -- -- those -- prevalent -- on the money edited by alpha Mercury's that you basically tonight over my dead at at and loves that -- So he personally just wants to pour resources and alpha he's got some personal attacks -- -- -- when he -- -- -- it -- but he'd love to sell so. But just looking of the -- -- understand that they're beautiful -- a lawyer argued stick it you know not a beautiful -- I noted that. Nothing at work here than the fixes -- this thing ever got wind speed of bam do what it's. That this is kind of a let down because we're used for reasons we do some really interesting concept that there's doubt this -- its interest. This looks like a -- -- -- but like I do but eat -- one of those Surrey top you know beach -- things meets. A Fiat jolly -- the fifties. -- goofy looking thing. But the first thing I noticed this LCD against those in need and what the real but it never does it beat it on my vehicle and its residents ages ago and that -- -- like -- your FaceBook status update or I would want them. The planet that had -- would tell the world where you're going so you get out. -- -- hitch -- at them like you debit like -- going where they wanna go. And that they had they. -- to USB key but it's USB Swiss army knife and started. The top walk through those lift -- you know right topping things you can turn those into beach blankets. -- it looked at it okay. And its electric and asked him what these big the hard sell things almost looked like a but to let things are yet silence that look like tired players there's only their bicycles. It comes to holding. The best bet that's what illustrate giving your card should it come with bicycles with -- much -- there it's really -- the slab -- yet not many doors -- the doors are indisputable in pieces to that and -- the military and ice cream -- center for -- community. But why don't but -- average -- that's hot. Weird stuff they did the head underwater car they didn't nets and scuba -- -- -- added also at the graphical style but this is just great debt. -- certainly got all the coverage of this -- but that's actually more at CNET car tech networks. On budget and our coverage cars dot cnet.com. The tank is 2011 Geneva auto show but they don't have any of our post and take your right to our home page for him -- brightly. Thanks for joining the special -- car -- live from.
