Ultra-low-cost car from Toyota Soon

Car is not cheap and most people in the world still do not own a car. There was a time when mobile phone was expensive and most people did not own a mobile phone set. Then the mobile phone makers and operators realized that the best way to increase business was to make this technology affordable for the mass people. Now, we are seeing a same trend in cars. Toyota has stated that it would come up with a low cost car by 2010. Yes, within 3 years you will find a cheap car from Toyota.

The Australian reported:

TOYOTA is working on an ultra-low-cost car to compete with makers in emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Toyota president Katsuaki Watanabe said in an interview with the Financial Times the focus for the model was "low-cost technology".

"Everything from design to production methods will be radically changed and we are thinking of a really ultra-low-cost way of designing, using ultra-low-cost materials, even developing new materials if necessary," Mr Watanabe said.

At the other end of the market, Alfa Romeo has cut $7000 off its gorgeous Brera coupe this month after rivals undercut it on price, reducing the Italian brand's flagship by 10per cent after only a few months on sale.

So, good news for millions of people who cannot afford an expensive car at this moment. They just need to wait for another 3-4 years to own a car.

Alfa Romeo Tuning – The Ultimate Options and Results

Alfa Romeo is, most definitely a brand that represents a wide range of different car models with the same stylish personality and a great deal of potential. We might say about these cars that they are pretty close to perfection and, in some cases, the tuning and optimizing procedures can help them actually become the perfect, dream cars.

How to Improve an Alfa Romeo Car

Besides the great selection of companies that are specialized in tuning procedures in general that would be delighted to transform a capable, powerful Alfa Romeo car into an even more powerful one, there are numerous companies that are strictly specialized in Alfa Romeo tuning and the results can be quite surprising. But tuning does not need to be so spectacular and expensive. Alfa Romeo parts and accessories can be found, transformed and changed quite easily. Most car owners that are in search of new ways of improving their car are mainly focused on getting extra power. What can be done in the case of Alfa Romeo? For instance, the first step when wanting to boost the power is to add to the Alfa Romeo car an air filter and a sports exhaust, together with a fuel pressure boost valve – and these solutions are quite affordable, too.

Optimized Examples of Alfa Romeo Tuning

One of the best and most impressive Alfa Romeo tuning examples is represented by the optimized version of the elegant Alfa Romeo Brera, a car named Autodelta Brera J5 3,2 C - the name Autodelta stands for the British tuning company that managed to do such a great job and, furthermore, the “J” letter symbolizes its exclusive feature and hand-made, customized features. But don’t think that this was an easy job – after all, transforming the classier standard Alfa Romeo Brera into this dream car for speed lovers took more than one year. But what is so spectacular about this car? First of all, the engine is brand new and it is at high standards: Arese V6, which has a power of 400 CP, with JTS technology. Moreover, this optimized car can achieve the 100km/hour target in 5,3 seconds and can go up to 270 km/hour. As for the tires, these are Dunlop SP Sport Maxx, with 19 inch rims.

Alfa Romeo brand made quite a spectacular comeback since 2001, when the Alfa Romeo 147 was released on the market. Specialists claimed that this particular car has a strong personality, a very aesthetic body and a silent, yet powerful engine. Since then, more and more customers and car lovers admire the elegance, but also the force and power of these cars. And now, with the wide range of Alfa Romeo tuning possibilities, these cars can be optimized and personalized as the owner desires. Further resources on the following Alfa models are also available: Alfa Romeo GTV, Alfa Romeo 155 parts, Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Alfa Romeo 146 spare parts and Alfa Romeo 8C .
