Rims, Horse Power, BMW i8 and Chysler ME Four-Twelve

6 Aug

Horse runs red light. Glow in the dark rims…stupid. Wagon wheel rim…ridiculousnes.

Ok, that was cool right….no get the time Machine




This car was made in 2004. If this hit the street America would be saying something in the car game.



The ME Four-Twelve is a concept car produced by Chrysler under the Chrysler brand in 2004. There were two ME Four-Twelve vehicles produced. The first, strictly an auto show property with very limited operational capabilities, was designed in great secrecy during 2003, by a very small team led by project manager, Lou Rhodes. The auto show vehicle, unveiled at the 2004 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, took less than one year for design and development. The design styling was done by Brian Nielander (exterior) and Mark Walters (interior).

The engine in the ME 412 is a super light, aluminum engine. This V12, coupled with the four turbochargers, with 850 horsepower. 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6.2 seconds, and an estimated top speed of 248 mph, in the league with the Bugatti Veyron.

The ME 412’s interior features leather seats, a carbon fiber dashboard, and a chrome covered center console with a leather tilt steering wheel, and gunmetal gauges. The ME 412’s cabin features dual-zone climate control, a premium audio system, keyless access, and a push button start system. The roof is made of glass.


BMW i3 and i8 Concepts



The BMW i8 combines an electric motor with a gasoline powered 3-cylinder engine for a total output of nearly 350 horsepower. The 4-seat sports car has an all-electric range of 35 km and achieves a fuel consumption of less than 3 liters per 100 km while utilizing its full powertrain. 0-100 km/h acceleration takes less than five seconds and the i8’s top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

The launch of the new BMW i brand will create 800 new jobs, mostly in Leipzig, Germany where the production vehicles will be assembled. The production of the cars themselves will be accomplished using renewable sources, highlighting the brands increased commitment reducing environmental impact.
