2012 BMW M5 Concept

The BMW M5 2012 version (right now named BMW Concept  M5) is based off the current F10 5 Series chassis. The 2012 M5 will pack a variant of the X5 M and X6 M’s twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine with up to 590 horsepower sent to rear wheels. All this driven by a seven-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic. The new engine ensures a new dimension of the linear power development characteristic of BMW M automobiles. The high-performance characteristics reflected in its design are realized through the M-specific drivetrain and suspension technology.

The suspension technology especially developed for each model is an equally crucial constituent part of the well-balanced overall concept of any M automobile. It is constructed using comprehensive know-how obtained from years of racing and then tuned during extensive tests carried out on the North Loop of the Nürburgring. The result is an exclusive M suspension set up as well as exceptionally effective and weight-optimized brakes, which also remain stable even under the hard use that a place like the Nürburgring demands. In addition, the BMW Concept M5 features innovative rear differential technology also developed by BMW M GmbH.

 

 


Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom electric concept

The 102 EX Concept Car also known as Rolls-Royce Phantom EE (Experimental Electric) is powered by a lithium ion battery pack and two electric motors mounted on the rear sub-frame. The two motors of the vehicle, connected to a single speed transmission with integrated differential generate up to 389-hp and help the  Phanton 102EX to reach 60 mph in under 8 seconds. The Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom top speed is 99mph and on a full charge it can cover 124 miles.

Regarding the design, the manufacturer said: “102EX bears the famous hallmarks of the Rolls-Royce Phantom on which it is based, such as hand craftsmanship, fine detailing and iconic design cues like the pantheon grille and the Spirit of Ecstasy which celebrates its centenary in 2011. However, at the core of its design is the essence of an experimental vehicle, establishing this car’s status as a test bed, while subtly alluding to its electric power plant.”
