Nissan Z 400 from 2023 will come with a 400-horsepower twin-turbo engine
The 400Z is a compact model that in no hurry to bring to the market, as it is not a staple of Nissan. However, the Japanese automaker would make it very special.
It will be launched in late 2022
The latest information confirmed that the engine of the Z Proto model is the same that will be based on the Z 400, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 used by Skyline for the Japanese market and two Infiniti models that can be selected with all-wheel drive. The engine delivers 400 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 475 Nm of torque at 1,600 rpm. It connects to a seven-speed automatic transmission, or to a manual transmission. As for the Z 400 NISMO, it is expected to increase its power to 475 horsepower and will be characterized by all-wheel drive.
In other words, Nissan seems to surprise us with a small GT-R that costs less than the original GT-R. Recall that the 400Z is expected to be the 2023 model, but it will be launched in late 2022.
The most prominent super sports cars that appeared in the year 2020
Although the Corona pandemic undermined the most important and prominent car showrooms during the year 2020, the past year witnessed the emergence of a large number of distinctive super sports which we review here, most notably:
Aston Martin Valhalla
The Aston Martin Valhalla, with an all-carbon-fiber body, takes its name from the paradise of warriors in ancient Norse mythology. The Valhalla is a watered-down version of the Aston Martin supercar, whose first copies are waiting to be delivered to its big customers, the Valkyrie, which aims to provide the highest levels of performance from road cars.
Based on construction methods focused on reducing weight and enhancing aerodynamic levels, Valhalla operates through a hybrid mechanical system consisting of a six-cylinder internal combustion engine equipped with a turbocharged air connected to an electric motor and a battery that generates 1000 horsepower and reaches a maximum speed of 354 km / hr From 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds. Valhalla maintains its underpinning engineering design principles, extending the use of state-of-the-art Formula 1 vehicle technologies developed by the Red Bull Racing team in cooperation with Adrienne Newey into a larger car. Being a reduced version of the Valkyrie, Valhalla maintains the key features and concepts of the first, yet offers high practical advantages of handling and road performance.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
By introducing the first hybrid electric car in large-scale commercial production, Ferrari has transferred the high and exceptional performance of super sports cars to the automotive sector, which is available in unlimited numbers and at a price that may be high for the largest number of consumers, but it remains very low in the case of comparison with cars Another supercar that delivers the same power and performance but at a price that's twice as high.
The Stradale comes with an eight-cylinder engine installed at a 90-degree angle and equipped with an air charger capable of generating 780 horsepower, and connected to three electric motors capable of generating 220 horsepower, and one of the three engines is located in the back and is called the Kinetic Power Generation Unit (MGUK) considering that it is derived Of the system in Formula 1 cars, it is located on the rear axle between the engine and the eight-speed gearbox with double clutch clutch, while the other two engines are located on either side of the front axle. This highly developed system does not impose any additional complications on the driving experience. On the contrary, the driver can simply choose one of the four modes of the power unit and focus on driving only. An advanced control system manages all other details and operations, such as managing the power flow between the internal combustion engine, electric motors and batteries. This car travels from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.
By looking at it from the outside, one quickly realizes that the Cyan is a limited-commercial model and not a replacement for any other Lamborghini model, although we expect that the alternative Aventador will have a somewhat similar design, especially since the current Aventador was the one that shared its components with the Cyan. Including the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine.
But regardless of this matter, the most prominent title for Cyan is its practical hybrid or half-hybrid system, which relies on a 48-volt battery and a 34-horsepower electric motor directly coupled to the gearbox to provide momentary torque and transmits motion directly to the wheels as the first low-voltage system to work on it. And the electric motor alone provides the movement of the car at low speeds.
The hybrid system works with the mechanical engine to generate 808 horsepower, and is the first in the world in a hybrid car that uses super capacitors to store electrical energy instead of a lithium-ion battery, which allows storing three times the energy. And Lamborghini installed capacitors between the engine and the cabin to ensure the best weight distribution.
Speaking of weight, the new sports supercar came with a hybrid system that weighs 34 kg for both the engine and the capacitors, meaning that the amount of power to weight is 1 kg per 1 horse and this is an excellent number. And always with the numbers, it takes Cyan 2.8 seconds to reach 100 km / h from a standstill with a top speed standing at 350 km / h.
McLaren 756 LT
McLaren Automobile unveiled the new 765 LT in the Super Series series and the latest generation of the "Longtail" model, to be lighter, more powerful and capable of delivering higher levels of performance on the road and track at the same time.
As the most attractive and dynamically advanced version of the McLaren LT, the 765LT writes a new chapter in the history of the "Longtail" model that began with the F1 GTR race car in the 1990s and has seen the marque launch 4 road models since 2015.
McLaren enhanced driver interaction and dynamic track settings, as well as minimizing weight and increasing power. The brand has also committed to its promise that the production of LT models will be limited to a few, with only 765 cars available, each bearing its own number, to meet customer demands. The car has a power of 754 hp, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330 km
