The unnamed customer from Switzerland who owns this Dogdore, lucky not only with an unusual cover — it weighs 20 kg less (1570 pounds). Hybrid-power of 1500 HP (2000 N•m) this is a significant relief.

Swedish Koenigsegg has released the “world’s first” car completely covered with “bare carbon fiber” KNC (Koenigsegg Naked Carbon). Pioneer, but not the last model tested this coating became hypercar Regera. Normally the carbon comes with a thin layer of epoxy resin which is painted or varnished. But the company learned how to remove the epoxy by hand to get to the “pure carbon”, to clean each strand of fiber. This complex and lengthy process requires “absolutely perfect” tool for grinding and polishing, because mistakes are unacceptable.

On the outside of the body panels carbon fiber is not quite bare in some places it is painted or coated with the same epoxy, but polished. But most of the parts under the hood and in the cabin — a true KNC.

Firm long perfected the technology by applying KNC spot — on wheels, wings, splitters and so on. The samples were kept outside for several years (!), feeling their heat, rain and snow. Covering all of tolerated. “The end result is a startling new look at carbon fiber. The body becomes cold to the touch, and its luster is reminiscent of graphite,” says Koenigsegg. CEO Christian von Koenigsegg promises to spread the idea of the KNC: “Our philosophy has always been devoted to the study of extremes. This is wonderful stuff from a visual point of view, and our customers love to show us what made their car”.

The wheelbase is likely to be similar to the hatch — 2650 mm, but total length will exceed 4310 mm, and the trunk will be more 395 L.

The first official photos of the model Kia Xceed will be shown in the summer, and the premiere will take place on the tenth of September at Motorshow in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the SUV with bumpers that did not appear in the body color, rides on the roads of South Korea without any masking. And now there is no doubt that Xceed got your own body, not recycled “shell” hatchback Ceed.

The designers have tried to distance themselves from Xceed Sid. Headlight cutout — new, long lights, too. Another grille in the front bumper the horizontal ties. Silver paste instead of the rear window looks strange. Forked release is not the same as the Sid GT.

While none of the representatives sadovskoy family, including Cerato, no all-wheel drive. Deprived of it, and a new Soul, and Stonic. But Xceed is theoretically able to break the vicious circle if, for example, comes closer to the model of Hyundai Kona or “Rob” the elder brother of the Sportage. In addition, the approach of a new global compactthat will not only front-wheel drive.
