Seoul’s Hongik University Won Ferrari World Design Contest - 2011 Winners


Students from Seoul’s Hongik University have won the Ferrari World Design Contest, a competition in which 50 highly prestigious universities across the globe took up Ferrari’s challenge of imagining its cars of the future. The Korean school was chosen ahead of the second-placed IED of Turin in the final with London’s Royal College of Arts finishing in third position.



Ferrari-World-Design-Contest-2011-Xezri-by-IED-TurinThe first three classified models are:

  • Eternità – Kim Cheong Ju (Korea Rep.), Ahn Dre (Korea Rep.), Lee Sahngseok (Korea Rep.) – Hongik University (Seoul)
  • Xezri – Samir Sadikhov (Azerbaigian) – IED (Turin)
  • Cavallo Bianco – Henry Cloke (Regno Unito), Qi Haitao (Cina) – RCA (London)

The Seoul students provided the finest interpretation of Ferrari’s design brief for a thoroughbred hypercar brimming with new generation technologies and materials, a car extreme (“hyper”) not only in its architecture but also in every other aspect. Having completed an initial 2D design, the entrants then generated 3D models in 3D Autodesk® Alias as well as making a physical 1:4 scale model with particular emphasis on detailing and the car interior in addition to more functional concerns.

All of the design concepts focused on reducing fuel consumption through alternative propulsion systems, particularly hybrid engines. Another common thread was the boosting of driving pleasure through weight reduction. More geometric forms alternated with sinuous, almost organic lines in the various design projects.

There were also two special prizes. The “Autodesk Design Award”, for the best use of Alias software in the design process, was presented by the technical partner to the contest to Hongik school. The second prize, the “Most Unexpected Technological Solution” award, went to the team from Jiangnan University (China) for the audacious technical solutions contained in The Drake concept. The prizes were presented by Brenda Discher, Autodesk’s Vice President Industry Market, and Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felisa.

The three finalists, however, received their prizes from Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, CEO Amedeo Felisa, Paolo Pininfarina, chairman of the Pininfarina Group which has partnered Ferrari in the styling of its cars for over six decades, and Flavio Manzoni, director of the Ferrari Style Centre, which organised the contest.

Chevrolet Beat Diesel XSDE Engine Unwrap On 25th July 2011


The coming Monday, on the 25th of July, 2011, General Motors India will unwrap the Chevrolet Beat Diesel for the Indian market. This hatchback comes at a time when the Indian car market is in the midst of a slowdown in sales, primarily due to high petrol prices.

Now, with the Chevrolet Beat coming with a 936cc, three cylinder diesel engine, with a big focus on fuel economy, things could change for the better for General Motors India, whose Petrol and LPG Beat variants aren’t doing as well as the automaker would’ve expected it to.

So, the Beat Diesel arrives with a lot of hopes riding on it. The folks at GM India have put together a video explaining the salient features of the Chevrolet Beat Diesel’s XSDE common rail turbo diesel engine. Here’s a gist of what the video says for all the folks who’d perhaps be hard pressed to watch the video.

The XSDE turbo diesel engine is derived from the 1,248cc, four cylinder Liter Multijet Diesel engine. In three cylinder form, the engine will displace 936cc and produce 57 Bhp-157 Nm. The strong point of this engine, like all three potters will be the high fuel economy. The Chevrolet Beat thus becomes the second most frugal diesel car in India with an ARAI certified 24 KMPL mileage for the Beat Diesel. The diesel engine is tuned for low end torque and drivability, which means that the Chevrolet Beat Diesel will be a great bet for the city.

The Chevrolet Beat Diesel engine also uses a chain drive instead of the cam belt. What this translates into is, you don’t need to replace the cam chain for the life time of the engine, unlike the cam belt, which requires a replacement after a certain period of driving the car. General Motors India also claims that the Diesel engine of the Beat has been optimized to reduce vibrations and from the initial impressions we’re hearing from folks who’ve actually driven the car, the engine is vibe free, which is a welcome thing indeed, especially for a three cylinder engine which is usually prone to vibrations.

Chevrolet Beat Diesel Launch On 15th July 2011

Chevrolet Beat Diesel

The grapevine has it that the Chevrolet Beat Diesel will officially be launched on the 15th of July, after months of testing on Indian roads. We’ve spotted the Beat Diesel in and around Pune one-too-many times and these days, Beat Diesel versions with no camouflage whatsoever are being driven around, thus hinting at an impending launch date, which we’ll put it for the 15th of July according to our sources.

Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Beat Diesel is expected to be a price warrior, and is set to become one of the least priced diesel hatchbacks in India, thus giving General Motors India a solid chance to boost Beat volumes. The Chevrolet Beat Diesel could be available in three variants. The base variant, a mid level variant and a top end variant.

The base variant is expected to be a bare bones affair and could arrive with a price tag under 4 Lakh Rupees, Ex-showroom Delhi. The mid level variant, which will get a  few more creature comforts but miss out on the safety kit like airbags and ABS is expected to be priced around 4.4-4.5 Lakhs ex-showroom and the top end version with all the bells and whistles like automatic climate control, airbags and ABS could sell just under 5 Lakhs, ex-showroom.

These prices obviously make the Beat Diesel look quite tantalizing for the small family, for whom spacious interiors might not be a prime requirement. By undercutting it’s rival(Read the Figo) by a good 50-60 thousand rupees, the Beat Diesel with a 936cc CRDI engine producing 57 Bhp and 160 Nm looks like a solid bet as an entry level diesel hatchback. Now, time to sit back and wait for the official launch even as we’ve revealed most of specifications and price points that the Beat Diesel will come with.

New Maruti Swift Petrol Delivers 20KMPL Certified By ARAI

New Maruti Swift Petrol Delivers 20KMPL

Even as Maruti celebrates the production of a million K-Series engines, there is yet another K-Series engine that car buyers eagerly anticipate. The K-Series engine we’re talking about here is the 1.2 Liter unit with dual VVT. VVT, an acronym for variable valve timing is a technology that is soon used by petrol engines worldwide to improve both performance as well as fuel efficiency.

Team ICB, brought you the news about dual VVT technology making it to the 1.2 Liter engine of the new Swift Petrol, that is all set to be launched in August this year. The engine uses variable valve technology for both the intake as well as the exhaust valves, thus pushing the maximum power output by 10 Bhp, to 90 Bhp, even as fuel economy improves.

New Maruti Swift Petrol

Today, we have some more news emanating that the 1.2 Liter, 90 Bhp engine would be good for a a whopping 20 KMPL. which isn’t too unfathomable as the K-Series range of engines have known to be very driveable as well as fuel efficient. So, if indeed the new Swift manages an ARAI certified fuel economy figure of 20 KMPL, that would make the car the most fuel efficient B segment hatchback in the country, bettering the 18 KMPL+ figure that Toyota claims for the Etios Liva.

Also, the new Swifts will feature plastic fuel tanks that are 25-35% lighter than the conventional metal fuel tanks. This also is set to aid fuel economy as overall weight of the car decreases with a lighter fuel tank. Maruti estimates the fuel economy gain to be a whopping 15%  due to the new fuel tanks alone.

We aren’t done with the good news yet. The 1.3 Multijet diesel engine raises the bar further with a stellar 23.8 KMPL mileage figure which is outstanding to say the least. So, the new Swift indeed looks like rewarding its prospective buyer who has been waiting all along for the car, despite the many delays the new Swift has had to face, right from the Japanese Tsunami to labour trouble at Maruti’s Manesar plant.
