It may be difficult to get used to its name, but the fact remains that the Ferrari La Ferrari is the pinnacle at the moment in terms of exotic green cars. The rival of the McLaren P1 has recently been evaluated by the team of Top Gear, and the result is enough to make people jealous. And if it was really the end of the world? 8 ecological cars that we will be sad not to have known!
Would it seem that today is the end of the world! Even if we allow ourselves to be slightly skeptical, to take no chances, we still finished storing food and bottled water, a few days ago, in our fortified bunker, built to great cost several months ago already. Added to this are the few editions of the Car Guide and the Car & Driver magazine in order to pass the time.
If the opportunity is open to us, rest assured that we will continue to publish regularly on ecoloauto.com. So, residents of other bunkers on the planet, do not hesitate to join our Facebook page to be kept informed of news! However, the apocalypse is slow in making its appearance and we thought to make the compilation of the most spectacular ecological cars that we will not be given to admire if ever end of the world there is. What a loss really ... sacred Mayans!
Porsche 918 Spider
The Porsche 918 Spider combines 3 engines, 1 gasoline engine and 2 electric motors. All this with the aim of producing more than 500 horsepower and accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds while consuming only 3 liters per 100 kilometers. If the Porsche factory survives, know that you can get a 918 Spider for the nice sum of about 800 000 Euros by the end of 2013.
Mercedes SLS E-Cell
The Mercedes SLS E-Cell draws its power from four electric motors including one engine at each wheel, which produces a grand total of 526 horsepower and 649 lb-ft of torque, available from ... 0 rpm. The 0-100 km / h would be done, according to Mercedes, in 4.2 seconds, which would have been fast enough to escape the undead that would have attacked us! Unfortunately, Mercedes has not confirmed a marketing date
Here, connoisseurs will say that the Infiniti Essence was never supposed to be put into production and that it’s unveiling in Geneva in 2009 was only a simple exercise of style and technology on the part of Infiniti. So, even if the end of the world proves to be a hoax, we will never have the opportunity to see on the roads this hybrid Infiniti of 590 horses. But hey, we can always dream a little, right?
Jaguar C-X75 Hybrid
The Mayans calendar has time to resume its cycle several times before the Jaguar C-X75 sees the light of day. Indeed, the thinking heads of Jaguar determined that selling a car worth nearly $ 1 million might not be the best idea in the current economic climate. A quick question for Jaguar: What economic context could justify a million-dollar car? Nevertheless, we must admit that, design side, the C-X75 was very impressive.
Audi R8 E-Torn
The end of the world came on October 25 for the E-Torn, whose production was virtually canceled according to Audi. However, there is still a glimmer of hope that the R8 E-torn will see the light of day in a few years. But for that, it will be necessary that the future A3 E-Torn which will arrive in 2014 is a commercial success. Ah, it will also be necessary that, obviously, meteorites, earthquakes and other planned cataclysms save us!
Of all the cars on this list, the BMW I8 is probably the one that will go on sale the fastest. It is a high-performance hybrid car that can be recharged and allows the driver to travel almost 35 kilometers by using only the electric motor. The 0-100 km / h is done in 4.6 seconds and the car should go on sale for a little more than 100 000 Euros. Gasoline consumption is expected to be less than 3 liters per 100 kilometers
Ferrari will turn to hybrid power in the production of its future cars and HY-KERS represents the manufacturer's technological direction. The Ferrari HY-KERS uses a V12 engine combined with a 100 horsepower electric motor located in the transmission block. Ferrari believes that this electric motor location offers a better combination of handling and performance. Several purists shouted foul when Ferrari unveiled the HY-KERS dressed in a matte lime green bumper to bumper. On our side, a Ferrari remains a Ferrari and the fact that it is painted in green is really not the end of the world. Oops, bad choice of words!
Italdesign Giugiaro Bravado
Italdesign-Giugiaro is an Italian car design house that is responsible for the style of many exotic cars. It happens to him from time to time to create concept cars and the Bravado is a perfect example. The 3.0-liter V6 engine combined with the Bravado’s electric engine makes it possible to develop nearly 360 horsepower. Volkswagen, who owns Italdesign-Giugiaro, has not yet confirmed whether the Bravado will go into production. This is unfortunate since from December 21, 2012, it may be too late. This is what happens when we always put off tomorrow what we can do today ... So dear friends, let's hope that the rumors of an imminent end of the world is just a shame because there is no doubt, the future of the ecological car promises to be quite spectacular!
