Air Jordan 13s and no one even ever mentions it
It’s a world first head to head the new Business Secretary and the greenest Range Rover ever made! Auto Express got exclusive access to the man every British car boss wants to talk to: Vince Cable. And we did it in the most appropriate way possible we joined the minister for a ride in a new Range Rover Sport hybrid.As Business Secretary, Cable is the man responsible for keeping the wheels of the UK car industry moving. So he’s just visited three of Britain’s most famous names: Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover at their Gaydon home in Warwickshire.The new green face of 4x4s, the Sport gets a range extending petrol engine hooked up to an electric hybrid drive system. Its target is to slash CO2 emissions to 130g/km and give the model the ability to run for at least 12 miles on pure electric power with no emissions at all.A range of around 350 miles and 50mpg fuel economy are likely when the hybrid goes on sale in 2013. After his drive, an impressed Cable said: “These vehicles will end the image of large 4x4s as gas guzzlers.”He also tested a prototype Limo Green version of the new Jaguar XJ (driven in Issue 1,117). “Such models show Britain’s premium car sector is more than capable of rising to the environmental challenge facing the industry,” he said.Cable admitted that he had been surprised by the fact Air Jordan 13s that Britain’s top automotive brands Rolls Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover accounted for 20 per cent of the nation’s car output and 50 per cent of the jobs in the industry.He acknowledged: “The UK’s premium sector makes an enormous contribution to our economy. This is something in which we excel, and our cars are exported all over the world.”Cable added that the Government would look at proposals asking for assistance from any auto manufacturers in the UK. He said ministers had already met General Motors Europe bosses and encouraged them to build their new Ampera electric vehicle at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire.Vince’s Drive in an Aston Martin:It Air Jordan 15s wasn’t only the new hybrid Range Rover that Vince Cable got his hands on the minister was also able to fulfil a dream by piloting an Aston Martin for the first time.And he didn’t hang about. he hit 150mph in his dream car, a 179,500 V12 Vantage Volante. It was the fastest drive of his life and a far cry from his usual Vauxhall Astra estate!As well as the mighty, range topping, 510bhp 6.0 litre V12 engined two seater convertible, Cable got behind the wheel of three other Aston Martin models: the V12 Vantage, the DBS Coup and the latest, facelifted DB9 Coup, all on the manufacturer’s high speed test track at its base at Gaydon, Warks.He also looked around the firm’s headquarters, and then took the wheel of the prototype Limo Green version of the new Jaguar XJ.The minister, who clearly enjoys speed, got a totally different Jaguar experience when he was then shown the art of sideways ‘drifting’ around a track in a Jaguar XKR Black Edition, driven by the marque’s handling guru, Mike Cross.Typical Auto Express piece, trotting out the car companies’ PR for them. Do you honestly think that a 2.5 tonne (probably 3 tonne including the batteries and electric motors) behemoth can achieve a real world 50mpg, even Air Jordan 16s with hybrid technology? It’s all hype, Air Jordan Future just designed to salve the consciences of the ignorant rich who buy these things. The truth remains that it is crazy for people to buy a 2.5 tonne vehicle to transport a human being who may weigh 70kg or so, even with the sop that is hybrid technology. The only way that the image of gas Air Jordan 6 Rings guzzling 4x4s will end is if they dramatically reduce their weight and size (like many of the crossovers have achieved). Let’s face it, they are simply pnis replacements for those whose self image is not secure anyway.this does sound like a but of a jolly, excuse to get out of the office for the MPs. i wouldn’t mind a blast round a test track in an aston and xkr either. in exchange for the usual PR lark. stand there, smile and have you picture taken.”runs 12 mile son pure electric power”. i actually laughed out load when i read that.this hole thing about humans shouldnt drive big cars things is really boring. what next, you cant have a big house, because homeless people exist? you shouldnt go out to dinner, because some people dont have any food. WHFhow about all these people who are still having huge familys when they know they cant afford to feed them! now thats sheer stupidity for you. talk about digging yourself a big hole, then expecting everyone else to come to the rescue and sort it out for them.the only problem effecting this world is over population, and no one even ever mentions it! its always this rubbish about you cant drive the car that you want. well there will always be rich and poor people, and all the socialists better get used to it!
