Politicians of the CDU / CSU Group in the Bundestag penetrate according to a newspaper report to take advantage of a car tooth on German straws for the purpose of budgetary refurbishment. "Whether you call you a car toll, electronic car vignette or strain use creation, is such a thing: I can definitely imagine something very well", explained the supreme budgetary politician of the Union faction in the Bundestag, Norbert Barle, who Rheinische Post.

"The motorists are rightly argued that they are asked almost everywhere in European foreign countries, while the threads in Germany are free of charge for all", Quotes the daily newspaper Barthle appearing in Dusseldorf. Vignette or toll were able to become part of the consolidation package for the budget, the Union and FDP currently prepared under high prere.

In the development of the Union faction, the budgetary politicians were drawn with this proposal open trees, it is called in the report. In early debates, a car vignette for the price of 100 euros per year had been in conversation, which has spooled about 3 billion euros in the cash registers. Also in the CSU-wanted traffic ministry there are sympathies for a car toll.

Mtm cantronic ensures more ps and electronic lowering

Baystents, 4. January 2008 – Chiptuning normally is called: original engine control apparatus, reprogramming and reinstating. Motor Technik-Mayer goes a different way at the M-Cantronic: an additional device is installed, which can be removed easily and backlessly again. With the M-CANTRONIC, the engine specialists of competitors tickle more power and torque from the diesel engines of the VW Group.

Speed-dependent control

Instead of raising the sprite prere on the entire speed range and to damage the engine, if necessary, take into account MTM the speed. The cantronic attacks the speed signal from the CAN bus. Depending on the speed, fuel and boost prere are optimized. The function of a particulate filter is not affected, so MTM. The M-CANTRONIC is offered including TUV partial reporting and examination on electromagnetic contractuality.

Audi A5 and VW Tiguan

The M-Cantronic is installed, among other things, in Audi A5 3.0 TDI. This increases the power of 240 to 292 hp, the maximum torque is raised from 500 to 580 Newton meters. The conversion costs 1450 euros. Who wants, can complete the tuning through a four-pipe exhaust system. Due to the lower exhaust back prere, a further increase in performance is achieved to 300 hp. In the normally 140 hp VW Tiguan 2.0 TDI is obtained with the M-Cantronic 180 hp; The torque rises from 320 to 360 Newton meters. The price for the reusing is 999 euros. For still a little more power, a new exhaust system with two double end tubes ensures. Still in preparation is a mandated turbocharger and a specially tailored exhaust system. Thus, in conjunction with the cantronic even 210 hp possible.

Detroit motor show: lincoln mkz concept

Detroit (Michigan / USA), 13. January 2012 – The Ford subsidiary Lincoln shows on the Detroit Motor Show 2012 (still up to 22. January 2012) with the MKZ a noble-made limousine on Ford-Mondeo base. The MKZ is still declared as a study, but the production model was allowed to have rough similarities with the concept car. The platform for the clake offers Ford Fusion, as the Mondeo in the US market is called.

The Ford designers have set to a clear and parorkllosis line carrying in the design of the MKZ. A strongly contoured edge on Turgriffhohe extends from the front spoiler to the rear of the Lincoln and let him look a bullyfish. In the bonnet of the sedan, a fold is insulated in the middle. The most distinctive feature of the MKZ is the typical double-flyer Kuhlerbill, which already carried the Lincoln Zephyr from 1938 on the nose. From the narrow A-soule, a panoramic glass roof is stretched to the rear, where the LED jerk lights extend over the entire vehicle width.

Inside like dear: good

The comfortable and functional interior should appeal mainly to young, sophisticated customers. The stages of the automatic transmission are loaded at the study over keys. In the center console, a 10 inch gross touchscreen is integrated, which can also be operated by voice control. Elegant wood, matt aluminum and champagne-colored leather seats make the car to the small strain yacht. Under the hood of the MKZ, Ecoboost engines from Ford are used. Hybrid variants are also conceivable. As with the Group Brother Mondeo, the drives are optionally transferred to the front or all four wheels. In the course of 2012, the Lincoln MKZ should roll to US handlers. The opportunities for a European variant, however, seem low.

Audi tt rs: new top model with over 300 hp

Ingolstadt, 23. February 2009 – Two years ago, Audi had the last funfzylinder in the program. The Audi RS2 was in collaboration with Porsche and was based on an Audi 80 Avant. 315 hp did the rank-Funfzylinder turbomotor at that time. Now the Audi TT RS is in the march and also the should have been a funfzylinder under the hood for the first time since 1996. The TT RS is at the Geneva Auto Salon (5. to 15. Marz 2009) shown for the first time.

In less than five seconds
The turbo direct injector develops a power of 340 hp from 2480 cubic centimeter displacement. This corresponds to a liter output of 137.1 hp per liter. The maximum torque of 450 Newton meters is between 1600 and 5300 tours. The standard sprint at Tempo 100 takes 4.6 seconds. This is almost a second faster than the previous classprimus Porsche Cayman S Sport with 303 hp. The Zuffenhausen presses in 5.4 seconds from zero to 100 km / h. The Ingolstadter promises an electronically directed highest speed of 250 km / h for the all-wheel drive TT RS. For a surcharge, it can be raised to 280 km / h. Consumption give Bayern with 9.2 liters.

Ten millimeters deeper
A serial sport key, which, if desired, let the exhaust even hearty blades and changes the characteristic of the engine, underscores the sporty character as the series-maby sports suspension. It puts the body of the TT RS by ten millimeters deeper and has a tight tuning matching for the engine performance. Contact the strain 18-inch rider with tires of the rough 245/45. Behind it hide powered disc brakes with a diameter of 370 millimeters on the front axle and 310 millimeters behind.

Despite economic growth, humanity released slightly less carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuels into the atmosphere this year. Scientists of the "Global Carbon Project" expect a worldwide decrease of about 0.6 percent compared to the previous year to 35.7 billion tons of CO2. But it was unlikely that emissions of the climate-damaging greenhouse gas had really peaked yet, Corinne Le Quere of Britain’s University of East Anglia said Monday on the sidelines of the Paris UN climate conference.

The prediction was published in the journals Nature Climate Change and Earth System Science Data . "While previous declines in emissions have occurred during economic crises, this would be the first decline during a period of strong economic growth," the university said. The statistical uncertainty is quite rough, however, with the forecast ranging from a significant drop in emissions of 1.6 percent to a slight increase of 0.5 percent. The scientists rely on data on energy consumption in China and the U.S. as well as expected economic growth in the rest of the world.

Last year, CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and industry had already risen only slightly (plus 0.6 percent) according to the study. This is a significant shift compared to the strong increase in the previous decade, when CO2 emissions rose by an average of 2.4 percent annually.
