Forza

Forza was founded for one reason, and one reason only. The driver. A Forza should never be seen as just a mode of transport, and a drive in a Forza should never be seen as a commute. Instead, we hope to offer every driver a journey, a voyage and above all, an occaision. Sliding behind the wheel of one of our cars should never feel a chore, because that is exactly the opposite of what we desire. A Forza is built to offer dynamic bliss teamed with the interior comfort you deserve. Whether you decide to purchase our smallest car and most affordable car, or our flagship super car, you can rest assured knowing that you are buying the best your money can buy.

A Forza has long served as a statement of success, a reward for those whose hard work has paid off and are now looking to revel in the finer things in life. All Forza vehicles are built by people who understand driving pleasure and seek to infuse their dynamic and performance expertise within the automobile. It should speak volumes that a prototype Forza will accumulate nearly 500,000km of testing on every kind of road possible before the car is released.

Why choose Forza?
After purchasing a Forza, the relationship does not end there. Every customer will be subject to the same friendly and personal treatment that they deserve, whether they buy a Forza B4 or a Forza M8 LWB. You can expect your car to be collected from your home or any place you desire when your vehicle is to be serviced or repaired. Unlike other dealerships, only one mechanic will be responsible for your vehicle, and will not be passed backwards and forwards between mechanics. Not only that, you will be treated like a real person and have any problems with the vehicle explained to you in great detail. We like to add a personal touch to every vehicle we create, and we invite you to share in this.

Forza buyers are also eligible to compete in several racing events organized soley for Forza drivers, along with receiving features that many other automobile manufactures wouldn't dream of offering. These include specially reserved seats at many sporting events, specialized driving courses and countless social events for you to enjoy.

And when selling your Forza, you can expect only the best treatment as we hope you will be replacing your old Forza with a new one, and further continue our relationship. At Forza, we consider you, the customer, to have priority over everything else.

Your Forza
Every Forza is made to their owners requirements, with a range of interior options and specification options available on every model. Since this is your car, we would like to personalize it to your taste. Every individual is different, and we respect that. This goes down right to the seats which you sit in, which can be specified to the drivers, and passengers, body build and comfort desirements. Wood or aluminium inlays and fascia can be fitted to almost every model, and you personally choose interior and exterior colours. Two-tone vehicles are also possible.

Image
To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease.

Image


The Tickford Experience
Many customers just aren't happy with stock standard. Who is a complete stranger to dictate to you how you would like your vehicle?

Tickford is a luxury coach builder exclusively commissioned by Forza Automotive to add custom additions and designs to the Forza range. Buyers can enter into the Tickford program with any model they choose to buy. Along with an extensive range of existing Tickford options for your vehicle, Tickford also commissions one off custom variants of your chosen Forza model to deliver that taste of individualism which one always desires.

Tickford options fluctuate greatly in price. For more information about Tickford treatment on your next Forza, contact your local dealer.

Forza Performance: Sport, RS, GT, R
Forza has long had a strong history with performance, and as such we go to lengths to put the sporting touch in each of our vehicles. Sitting behind the wheel of any one of our cars, you will feel the purity that only a rear wheel drive car can give, feel the connection to the road which has made our cars what they are and feel the joy a new Forza can bring. What is a passion for you, is an obsession for us.

Forza performance models are available on most of the model range, begining with the subtly sporty S and Sport models found on many of the more practical additions to the Forza range. The Sport badge, usually abbreviated to a single S, sees a long history with Forza vehicles signifying a variant designed and optimized for driver pleasure. Sport additions now days not only bring an exterior package to ensure there is no mistaking your vehicle for a base model, but also bring a firmer chassis, a greater variation of suspension setting through the command function and of course, increased power. The Sport badge is not just a sticker to adorn a variant in the Forza tree, it represents proper history and a passion for driving.

The GT and GT-R badges are used to signify those cars who really are supercars in disguise. The Grand Touring badge is one fitted to many brands of vehicle world wide, but how many of those vehicles can really claim to fulfill the title of Grand Tourer? Who knows, but we do know that a Forza can. GT and GT-R badges are only fitted to the most extreme of the Forza sedans, those who really can embarrass a great many sports cars with their straight line speed and telepathic handling. Buying into the GT and GT-R legend not only entitles the user to a powerful car with a honed chassis, but also into the Forza Performance membership club.

Sitting atop the crust represents the Modena and R badged models. The top tier of Forza performance signifies the most powerful, hardest and fastest vehicles available in the Forza range. A car isn't simply given the Modena or R badge, it must earn it.




History
Forza was founded in the nation of Vitaphone Racing by Mark Canarvon in 1943. Mark originally wanted to create an automobile company that existed solely to provide driving pleasure, and to make driving an experience rather than a chore. This idealism made Forza a slow-starting but strong success within the home nation of Vitaphone Racing. The first automobile produced was the FX8, a two door, four seat luxury coupe with a 6.0 Litre V8 engine, good for a top speed of 120mph, which was considered exceptional in 1943. The FX8 quickly became a status symbol for those with the affluence to afford it, and an inspiration for those who could do nothing but sit back and dream. Production of the FX8 ceased in 1950, after seven years and over two thousand models sold to various customers, many from other nations.

Image


In 1952, Forza was sufficiently happy with the success of the Luxury Coupe and decided to further its horizons by releasing two new models, a two seat sports car in 1954 and a four door luxury saloon in 1956. The two seat sports car was classified as the FR8, but quickly became dubbed the Bolt, due to the small lightning bolt that adorned the badge and the car's frighting acceleration. The FR8 made use of radial tuned suspension, which was technology that was a long way ahead of its time. RTS gave the FR8 real dynamic ability that sharpened the driver's connection to the road and seemingly made every other similar automobile feel truck like and disconnected. Unfortunately, the FR8 was also a handful to drive thanks to the enourmous V8 engine, the same that had powered the FX8. Many a driver was caught out by the torque surge at low RPM's.

Image


By 1973, Forza began to set their sights on foreign markets and gradually began to expand into the region of Texas. The brand sought instant acclaim from new markets for their luxurious cars, both large and sporty. However in 1974, a little known terrorist group called the FFF (Federation of Freedom Fighters) began to spread their idealistic views throughout the nation of Vitaphone Racing, and then commenced a political war against the Government. The FFF grew to infamy for terrorist bombings and indescriminant shootings in busy public areas, and eventually began to overrun the military of Vitaphone Racing. Trouble caused by the FFF effectively halted production of Forza, although the factory was never actually in danger. Neighbouring nations invaded Vitaphone Racing on behalf of the Vitaphone Government and gradually, the FFF was pushed back and eradicated, with atrocities being committed by both sides.

It took until 1980 for Forza to effectively recover, and by that stage the cars they produced werre in small demand and the future looked bleak. This was when Forza decided to open to a new and lower market with the new H6 and H8 series of sedan, a large, spacious luxurious and fast sedan with a price that more people could afford. The H-Series as it became known, was an instant success for its great looks and involving drive. This success was further backed up by the introduction of the E4 and E6, a smaller sedan and even more affordable. When the E-Series was released, many Forza executives worried that this sedan would cheapen the brands image too much, but they were wrong. The E-Series instead raised the bar of the mid-size sedan segment and since then has never looked back.

Image

Image


In 2010, Forza exports to well over 50 different nations and has a line up of over ten different vehicles. The new generation hero model was found in 2004, when the new R-Series was released. The R-Series has started a cult around Forza, with this famous car adorning the walls of millions of young boys' bedrooms and being the car of choice for gamers alike. This reputation has been further cemented by the runaway success of the R-Series in racing leagues.

To get around the city, you need to fit around the city. The B-Series
Segment/Class Premium Compact/ Small

Image

The B-Series is billed as the ultimate city car. 4.2 metres long, 1.8 metres wide, 1.7 metres tall, but can seat four people in comfort, and has a 360L boot. The B-Series takes practicality and packaging to a new level, its cleverness is un matched in the class.

The inline four engine is the 'base' engine of the range and will be fitted standard to all models. Buyers can opt for the upgrade to the inline five turbo engine should they prefer. The inline four returns superb fuel economy and generates more than enough power to give the E-Series unparalled performance for a medium sized far. For many buyers, the 100kw L4 engine will provide all the power they could ever want.

The base diesel takes the form of the 100kw 1.8 Litre Inline 4 with turbocharger and commonrail fuel injection for efficiency and driveability. The diesel returns better fuel economy than the standard petroleum engine and has a powerful torque surge at all gears.

For others who would be seeking a more performance oriented small hatchback, the B4 RS provides drivers with a 2.5 litre 5 cylinder engine with a single mid-boost turbocharger which produces. The Turbo 5 cylinder engine is a true performance engine, offering superb throttle response and the engine note to match. Its lag free performance makes this an engine to die for, and is regularly rated as one of the best small engines ever produced and turns the rally spec (RS) B-Series into a monster.

All three petroleum engines are capable of running on 91RON and Slush Hydrogen, therefore they should be suited to most country's fuel suppliers.The E-Series can run on slush Hydrogen, which has no effect on the environment. Hydrogen engines combine hydrogen atoms with oxygen, collecting the energy produced to power the car. Of course, the by product is water, non polluted. You can drink it if you like.Its simple and easy, the car of the future. Both cars also feature a petrol regeneration system, which freezes exhaust fumes to collect the unused fuel and feeds it back into the tank, reducing emissions by %40 and fuel consumption by %20.

Image

The B-Series also offers a hybrid electric system standard on the four cylinder. This mounts an 40kw generator in the engine bay and a powerful lithium-ion battery pack under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) when the car brakes or turns a corner. The petrol engine shuts down and turns on only as needed. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the small LED screen fitted standard to the interior. This greatly reduces fuel usage and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the B-Series' green credentials.

The B-Series is a small sized car although it is easily capable of seating five adults in its interior. It offers a 360L boot, with 60/40 split folding rear seats, which further increases luggage capacity. The B-Series also has a full-size spare wheel, a rarity in this class.

The interior of the car is designed as a nice place to be for the driver and occupants. Driving should not be regarded as a chore, but in a harsh environment, driving can be regarded as tedious or uncomfortable. The B-Series is elegantly decorated with wood, leather and aluminium finish, giving the car a rather subdued elegance feel, rather than a drab plastic interior or a glitzy stand out cover job featured on most other small cars. At the centre of the console, is a 7" monitor which can be used to access the Command function, by using the buttons mounted either side.

Image

Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car, eg Climate Control, Audio, Engine response, gear change settings, suspension settings. Command can be used by the large turning knob and arrow buttons to use, however express buttons to control frequently used features such as climate and radio are also provided in banks below the monitor.

The B offers 22 different storage spaces, from floorwell bins that can be used to store large objects, to phone and iPod/MP3 docks. Its clever packaging sees the spare tyre mounted lower than in most cars, giving the B4 a rather large trunk capacity, or enough to fit 2 suitcases and 2 overnight bags.

Technology is where the B4 sets it self ahead. The B-Series comes with a 4 speaker 18 watt stereo system with an am/fm sattelite and MP3/CD/WMA/AAC capabilities. iPod/MP3 intergration is available with a standard fitted dock. handsfree phone connection, steering wheel mounted controls and bluetooth also comes standard. If this isn't enough for you, the B4L includes Premium Audio.
Also fitted to the Luxury models is the LSN-A8 Sattelite Navigation system, which has storage space for thousands of locations and can access virtually every location in the world. On the LX models, the Suna Traffic Channel is also installed, providing the A8 with traffic updates and other important information.

A slice of dynamic and performance heaven, at a mortal price
Segment/Class Premium D-Segment/ Midsize

Image

The E-Series is our entry to the mid-size field. Designed for those who enjoy driving, yet are brought down by the realities of pricing, economy and practicality. The E-Series seeks to override this, by offering power and dynamic bliss, yet while being affordable and with enough space to seat 5 adults and luggage.

ACR Technology

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratios. With petroleum engines, the maximum fuel pressure during the compression stroke is limited, any value higher than the limit causes the fuel/air mixture to detonate rather than burn.
Yet, to attain greater power at the same engine speed, a greater volume of fuel must be burnt thus in turn needing more air. In order to meet this demand, forced induction is used in the form of Forza's twincharging system. To avoid detonation of the fuel/air mixture the compression ratio must be decreased, this is done by increasing the volume in the cylinder, in this case by the cylinder head being compressed and allowing the volume in the cylinder to increase. The cylinder head can be altered by a hydraulic system connected to the crank shaft which responds according to the load on the engine. In order to best meet the driving conditions being experienced, the inlet pressure and compression ratio is constantly adjusted.

The induction system is a variant of Forza's TwinCharger system; a single Roots-type Superchager is used to aspirate the engine at low RPM's with two Turbochargers, one for each bank of cylinders, aspirating the engine further down the rev-range. TwinCharging systems have a number of advantages over other forms of forced induction. Unlike Turbocharged engines, Twincharged engines do not experience turbo-lag, where the turbochargers are ineffective because they are not at operating speeds. Unlike supercharged engines, Twincharged engines can decouple the supercharger from the engine so that it won't drain power to operate while still maintaining boost from the turbochargers. The two forms of forced induction do not operate in parallel in a bid to avoid the extremely high manifold temperatures which would be produced by the supercharger blowing into the turbocharger.

The inline four engine is the entry level engine of the range and exists as an engine that is aimed towards returning optimal fuel economy instead of high performance driving. Using ACR Technology, the inline four returns superb fuel economy and generates more than enough power to give the E-Series unparalled performance for a medium sized car. For many buyers, the 160kw and 320nm L4 engine will provide all the power they could ever want in a car of this calibre. As well as ACR technology, the 1.8 Litre makes use of 'twin charging' where both a supercharger and a turbocharger are used to aspirate the engine. For lower engine speeds, the supercharger (which is driven directly by the engine) is used to provide boost, however when the exhaust pressure generated is sufficient to run the turbocharger, the supercharger shuts down so as not to consume power.

One rung above the 1.8 Litre engine lies the 2.5 Litre engine, also twincharged with ACR Technology. Far more than just a bored out and stroked version of the 1.8, the 2.5 Litre engine is aimed at buyers who prefer a sportier driving experience or those who tow regularly. Although producing only 40kw more than the 1.8 litre engine, the 2.5 produces 400nm of torque across a very wide band promising a linear power delivery and a smooth, responsive throttle.

The last engine to feature the TwinCharged ACR Technology is the 3.0 Litre V6 which also features in the H-Series sedan. The 3.0 Litre V6 offers an impressive 255kw of power along with 450nm of torque, delivered by a wide power band thanks to its twincharged set up. Using the variable compression technology and twin-charged set up, the 3.0 Litre reaches a specific output of 85kw/Litre while still retaining superb fuel economy and the reliability that you would never associate with a sport engine.

All three petroleum engines are capable of running on 91RON and Slush Hydrogen, therefore they should be suited to most country's fuel suppliers.The E-Series can run on slush Hydrogen, which has no effect on the environment. Hydrogen engines combine hydrogen atoms with oxygen, collecting the energy produced to power the car. Of course, the by product is water, non polluted. You can drink it if you like.Its simple and easy, the car of the future. Both cars also feature a petrol regeneration system, which freezes exhaust fumes to collect the unused fuel and feeds it back into the tank, reducing emissions by %40 and fuel consumption by %20.

The E6 HybriDrive also offers a hybrid electric system, teamed with a V6 engine. This mounts an 80kw generator in the engine bay and a powerful lithium-ion battery pack under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) when the car brakes or turns a corner. The petrol engine shuts down and turns on only as needed. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the small LED screen fitted standard to the interior. This greatly reduces fuel usage and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the E-Series' green credentials. The HybriDrive is suited to markets with extreme emissions control.

The new GT and GT-R models employ a 3.2 Litre V6 which is aspirated by two variable geometry turbochargers. Variable Geometry Turbochargers were selected to allow the aspect ratio of the turbocharger to be altered as the conditions change. This is done because optimum aspect ratio at low engine speeds is very different from that at high engine speeds. If the aspect ratio is too large, the turbo will fail to create boost at low speeds; if the aspect ratio is too small, the turbo will choke the engine at high speeds, leading to high exhaust manifold pressures, high pumping losses, and ultimately lower power output. By altering the geometry of the turbine housing as the engine accelerates, the turbo's aspect ratio can be maintained at its optimum. Because of this, VGTs have a minimal amount of lag, have a low boost threshold, and are very efficient at higher engine speeds. The 3.2 Litre V6 also uses strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving. The performance is staggering. The GT produces 320kw and 475nm of torque, the GT-R ups the ante with 350kw and 500nm. This is teamed with the smooth linear power delivery associated with VGT engines to deliver a surreal driving experience.

The final option of engine is the 4.2 Litre Naturally Aspirated V8. Designed by principles from a time where Variable Geometry Turbochargers and Adaptable Compression Ratio Technology did not exist, the V8 option is an engine like no other in the E-Series range. The 4.2 Litre V8 and its related 5.5 Litre V10 counterpart are true drivers engines; high revs, high performance and scintillating aural qualities. The four valves per cylinder V8 uses strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving. Outputs of 350kw are delivered near the redline of 9000rpm with 440nm of torque available from 5000rpm. When this is teamed with the lightened Modena version, performance is taken to a whole new level.

The entry level diesel options take the shape of the 2.0 Litre and the 2.5 Litre: An exceptional result in terms of agility, smoothness of operation, consumption figures and emissions has been achieved by the Forza engineers with the new-concept 4-cylinder diesel powerplant with three output levels.The engines are significantly stronger, yet at the same time thriftier and emit less carbon than their preceding models. Using high-precision piezo-injectors, fuel is injected rapidly and precisely at pressures of 2000 bar into the cylinder. The Variable Geometry Turbocharger that accompanies the engine assists in providing the amount of boost required to mix the right amount of air with the fuel. Newly-developed ceramic fast glowplugs improve the cold running behaviour, while two Lanchester balancer shafts enhance smoothness of operation, enabling the highest degree of ride comfort.

A V6 diesel option is also offered for those who seek more power than the smaller models. The impressive features of the 6-cylinder diesel engine is the smooth running characteristics and low consumption and emission figures. This clean, efficient, power delivery is thanks to Forza's second-generation direct petrol injection process, which involves spray-guided combustion and high-pressure injection via piezo injectors. In addition, a particulate filter reduces soot emissions to bring the V6 into line with even the most strict of emission laws.

Transmission on base models is an Aisin six-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.2 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the E-Series' serene yet dynamic personality. For those who prefer a manual shift, a Tremec T6 6-Speed manual is also available at no extra cost.

For the sportier models, the automatic transmission is substituted for the Tremec TCR Double Clutch Transmission. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7)whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears(2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driven roadwheels, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly. Shift times of less than 0.02 seconds can be expected. The Transmission can be fully automated or set to manual, and shift times can be changed so the driver may strike a balance between performance and comfort. The DCT also offers a launch control system which can be set by selecting drive, holding the gear lever to the right and fully compressing the throttle. Once pressure on the gearlever is released, the car will launch.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver to better suit their needs. In this system, the damper fluid contains metallic particles. Through the onboard computer, the dampers' compliance characteristics are controlled by an electromagnet. Essentially, increasing the current flow into the damper raises the compression/rebound rates, while a decrease softens the effect of the dampers. Information from wheel sensors (about suspension extension), steering, acceleration sensors and some others is used to calculate the optimized stiffness. Very fast reaction of the total system allows, for instance, make softer passing by a single wheel above a bump or a rock on the road.

The E-Series is a medium sized car although it is easily capable of seating five adults in its interior. The E-Series offers a 410 litre boot with a 60/40 split folding rear seat which further increases the boot capacity to an enourmous 1340 litres, making the E-Series one of the most spacious cars in its class. Theoretically, this is more than enough to carry anything from groceries to a bicycle. The E-Series also features items such as luggage belts, collapsible cargo nets and dividing cross bars to keep objects in the boot from rolling around in the cargo compartment, these are also featured on the H-Series, M-Series, G-series and C-Series cars.

The new E-Series comes in a sedan or sportwagon style. The Sportwagon is 20mm shorter than the sedan version of the E-Series, and its boot is subsequently 40L smaller. However, the extra practicality of a lift back may be suited to those who carry bulky loads. Many also prefer the look of the curvacious Sportwagon.

Image

The interior of the car is designed to be efficient and ergonomic of impeccable quality without being too brash. Sobering and somewhat austere, everything from the brushed aluminium switches to the sapphire backed gauges is designed to seamlessly fit in with the luxurious personality of the Forza E-Series. Only the highest quality leather makes it into the Forza plant, cows which come from areas of high humidity or too hot areas are turned away in favour of those from more temperate environments. Wood, unlike many cars, is real and is applied to the centre console and also to the rear seat divider. If the buyer finds wood not to be too his taste, he can suppliment wood for brushed aluminum or traditional plastic. Plastics used are designed not to be too brittle, too hard to too slippery yet be soft, inviting and tactile.

Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

The dashboard itself is dominated by the two huge dials which display the speed and engine speed of the Forza. To the outer of both gauges lie fuel, oil, boost and temperature gauges which are only illuminated once the car is started. Centered between the Speedometer and Tachometer is the central LCD display, proving only necessary information at a glance as well as trip computer and cruise control information.

To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease. Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car and controls everything from the multimedia system to the climate control and the cars suspension to providing warnings of flat tyres.

The E-Series comes standard with the premium audio system, comprising of a powererful 1.25kw array of six speakers and two subwoofers mounted around the cabin. The centre media player which is located immediatley above the touch screen can play a range of mulitmedia discs including CD's, MP3 and DVD as well as offering iPod and USB integration for those who don't carry around CD's any more. A standard TV tuner is also fitted to the car and TV or DVD videos can be viewed on the center touch screen, or an auxilliary screen infront of the passenger seat.

Working in tandem with Command, a communications array has also been set up within the S-Series. Bluetooth integration is offered throughout the cabin of the car, allowing the driver to answer phonecalls handsfree simply by pushing a button on the steering wheel. In addition, a SIM card can be installed into the car so that the car can make phone calls itself without the driver reaching for his hand-held phone. The owner can also use the system to browse the internet when the car is not in motion.

Also fitted standard on all models is the LSN-A8 Sattelite Navigation system, which has storage space for thousands of locations and can access virtually every location in the world. On the Luxury models, the Suna Traffic Channel is also installed, providing the A8 with traffic updates and other important information. The A8 provides a street view function for the driver so that they can see the route planned out as it would be in their eyes, a speed camera and red light camera warning function, a changing speed limit warning function which can even intergrate with the cruise control system, spoken street names and voice control. The system works in tandem with the HUD if fitted, with arrows displaying on the windshield signalling for the driver where to go. This is stored in the cars 200GB Hard Drive, along with other command related features.

Radar Cruise Control is a feature which is also offered standard on Luxury models. Like a normal system, the driver sets this speed and then can let the car maintain this speed with minimal input from the driver. Unlike a normal system, RCC can detect when another slower moving vehicle is blocking the path of the car and will automatically reduce speed to avoid a collision. When the vehicle in front speeds up, the car will follow however will not exceed the limit preset by the driver. RCC is controlled by the Magic Wand stalk on the steering column. To set the system, the driver moves the column up and the system activates, holding the current speed. To increase speed, the driver can push the stalk forward which increases speed by 1km/h or hold it forward to increase in 10km/h increments. The driver can also set the distance between cars in front and behind simply by flicking the knob to select a preset distance. 50m, 30m, 20m, 10m 5m and 'BMW-Close' settings are all available.

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

Interior Lighting can also be controlled by the Smartlight system. The Interior Lighting pack which comes standard with Luxury models comprises of a set of five reading lights and one overhead lamp in the centre of the vehicle. There are no on and off buttons; occupants can turn the lights on simply by touching them. The lights can also be brightened or dimmed simply by moving ones hand from the center to the right of left of the light.

Image

One of the more spectacular and pricey options on the E-Series is the panorama sunroof which runs the entire length of the cabin. The sunroof is constructed from high-strength plexiglass to avoid breakage, even from the most savage of impacts onto the roof. The covering is constructed from two sheets of thin Colorbond Steel with 5cm of insulation between the two sheets, providing superb insulation from the harsh sun above. When the sunroof is retracted, the plexiglass can be dimmed automatically so that less of the light penetrates into the cabin of the car. The front portion of the sunroof can be lifted up on an angle of of 15 degrees and slided forward to allow the open air access to the interior of the car.

Further active safety featues are available. One is LastChance braking system: using the radar employed by the cruise control, if the car detects a stationary or slow moving object infront of the car, an alarm will sound and the steering wheel will vibrate to alert the driver to this hazard. Should the driver not act in time, the car will brake with maximum force to minimize the impact of the collision. Another is Fatigue Warning. The car will monitor the grip on the steering wheel and the eye movements of a driver, if the driver is detected to be fatigued, the car will suggest the driver pulls over for a stop by lighting up a fatigue alert on the dashboard screen. Blind spot monitiors are also available to alert the driver to any cars likely to be hit should the driver choose to change lanes; cars are represented by red lines on either side of the dashboard screen. Lane Departure warnings alert the driver when the car begins to stray outside of the lane, and lastly, a Heads-Up-Display projects speed, gear and RPM's onto the windshield so the driver doesn't have to take his eyes off the road to check his speed.

Of course, like all models. All engines are capable of running on Hydrogen. Clean and reliable, this is without a doubt the fuel of the future.

For the Urban Jungle... C-Series
Segment/Class Medium SUV
Image
.
The C is based on our E-Series mid-size car, being on a slightly larger platform but sharing the same well proven drivetrain, which is regarded as one of the worlds best in the E-Series. When we asked ourselves, who would buy this car and for what purpose, we decided that the majority would be driving it on the roads, not the dirt. Because of this, we could make the C a real drivers car, without the poor handling and performance which is a stigma of the SUV models. Of course, for those who want to drive off road, we can cater accordingly.

ACR Technology

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratio's. Petrol engines have a limit on the maximum pressure during the compression stroke, after which the fuel/air mixture detonates rather than burns. To achieve higher power outputs at the same speed, more fuel must be burnt and therefore more air is needed. To achieve this, turbochargers or superchargers are used to increase the inlet pressure. This would result in detonation of the fuel/air mixture unless the compression ratio was decreased, i.e. the volume above the piston made greater. This can be done to greater or lesser extent with massive increases in power being possible. The down side of this is that under light loading, the engine can lack power and torque. The solution is to be able to vary the inlet pressure and adjust the compression ratio to suit. This gives the best of both worlds, a small efficient engine that behaves exactly like a modern family car engine but turns into a highly tuned one on demand.

The inline four engine is the entry level engine of the range and exists as an engine that is aimed towards returning optimal fuel economy instead of high performance driving. Using ACR Technolgoy, the inline four returns superb fuel economy and generates more than enough power to give the E-Series unparalled performance for a medium sized car. For many buyers, the 160kw and 320nm L4 engine will provide all the power they could ever want in a car of this calibre. As well as ACR technology, the 1.8 Litre makes use of 'twin charging' where both a supercharger and a turbocharger are used to aspirate the engine. For lower engine speeds, the supercharger (which is driven directly by the engine) is used to provide boost, however when the exhaust pressure generated is sufficient to run the turbocharger, the supercharger shuts down so as not to consume power.

One rung above the 1.8 Litre engine lies the 2.5 Litre engine, also twincharged with ACR Technology. Far more than just a bored out and stroked version of the 1.8, the 2.5 Litre engine is aimed at buyers who prefer a sportier driving experience or those who tow regularly. Although producing only 40kw more than the 1.8 litre engine, the 2.5 produces 400nm of torque across a very wide band promising a linear power delivery and a smooth, responsive throttle.

The last engine to feature the TwinCharged ACR Technology is the 3.0 Litre V6 which also features in the H-Series sedan. The 3.0 Litre V6 offers an impressive 240kw of power along with 450nm of torque, delivered by a wide power band thanks to its twincharged set up. Using the variable compression technology and twin-charged set up, the 3.0 Litre reaches a specific output of 80kw/Litre while still retaining superb fuel economy and the reliability that you would never associate with a sport engine.

All three petroleum engines are capable of running on 91RON and Slush Hydrogen, therefore they should be suited to most country's fuel suppliers.The E-Series can run on slush Hydrogen, which has no effect on the environment. Hydrogen engines combine hydrogen atoms with oxygen, collecting the energy produced to power the car. Of course, the by product is water, non polluted. You can drink it if you like.Its simple and easy, the car of the future. Both cars also feature a petrol regeneration system, which freezes exhaust fumes to collect the unused fuel and feeds it back into the tank, reducing emissions by %40 and fuel consumption by %20.

The E6 HybriDrive also offers a hybrid electric system, teamed with a V6 engine. This mounts an 80kw generator in the engine bay and a powerful lithium-ion battery pack under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) when the car brakes or turns a corner. The petrol engine shuts down and turns on only as needed. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the small LED screen fitted standard to the interior. This greatly reduces fuel usage and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the E-Series' green credentials. The HybriDrive is suited to markets with extreme emissions control.

The entry level diesel options take the shape of the 1.8 Litre and the 2.5 Litre: An exceptional result in terms of agility, smoothness of operation, consumption figures and emissions has been achieved by the Forza engineers with the new-concept 4-cylinder diesel powerplant with three output levels.The engines are significantly stronger, yet at the same time thriftier and emit less carbon than their preceding models. Using high-precision piezo-injectors, fuel is injected rapidly and precisely at pressures of 2000 bar into the cylinder. The Variable Geometry Turbocharger that accompanies the engine assists in providing the amount of boost required to mix the right amount of air with the fuel. Newly-developed ceramic fast glowplugs improve the cold running behaviour, while two Lanchester balancer shafts enhance smoothness of operation, enabling the highest degree of ride comfort.

A V6 diesel option is also offered for those who seek more power than the smaller models. The impressive features of the 6-cylinder diesel engine is the smooth running characteristics and low consumption and emission figures. This clean, efficient, power delivery is thanks to Forza's second-generation direct petrol injection process, which involves spray-guided combustion and high-pressure injection via piezo injectors. In addition, a particulate filter reduces soot emissions.

The C-Series HybriDrive also offers a hybrid electric system, teamed with a V6 engine. This mounts an 80kw generator in the engine bay and a powerful lithium-ion battery pack under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) when the car brakes or turns a corner. The petrol engine shuts down and turns on only as needed. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the small LED screen fitted standard to the interior. This greatly reduces fuel usage and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the C-Series' green credentials.


Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Five standard settings are available (Offroad, Unsealed, Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a sixth choice which can be preset by the driver. When this is teamed with the TerrainCommand system, the driver can set the car to automatically respond to any changing landscape ahead or the driver can adjust the ride height, rebound, stiffness etc to suit any situation they see fit. Likewise, the electronic safety programs will also respond to any requests from the TerrainCommand system.

The C-Series is a medium sized SUV although it is easily capable of seating five adults in its interior. The C-Series offers a 510 litre boot with a 60/40 split folding rear seat which further increases the boot capacity to an enourmous 1380 litres, making the C-Series one of the most spacious SUV's in its class. Theoretically, this is more than enough to carry anything from groceries to a bicycle. The C-Series also features items such as luggage belts, collapsible cargo nets and dividing cross bars to keep objects in the boot from rolling around in the cargo compartment, these are also featured on the H-Series, M-Series, G-series and E-Series cars.

The interior of the car is designed to be efficient and ergonomic of impeccable quality without being too brash. Sobering and somewhat austere, everything from the brushed aluminium switches to the sapphire backed gauges is designed to seamlessly fit in with the luxurious personality of the Forza E-Series. Only the highest quality leather makes it into the Forza plant, cows which come from areas of high humidity or too hot areas are turned away in favour of those from more temperate environments. Wood, unlike many cars, is real and is applied to the centre console and also to the rear seat divider. If the buyer finds wood not to be too his taste, he can suppliment wood for brushed aluminum or traditional plastic. Plastics used are designed not to be too brittle, too hard to too slippery yet be soft, inviting and tactile.

Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

The dashboard itself is dominated by the two huge dials which display the speed and engine speed of the Forza. To the outer of both gauges lie fuel, oil, boost and temperature gauges which are only illuminated once the car is started. Centered between the Speedometer and Tachometer is the central LCD display, proving only necessary information at a glance as well as trip computer and cruise control information.

To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease. Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car and controls everything from the multimedia system to the climate control and the cars suspension to providing warnings of flat tyres.

The C-Series comes standard with the premium audio system, comprising of a powererful 1.25kw array of six speakers and two subwoofers mounted around the cabin. The centre media player which is located immediatley above the touch screen can play a range of mulitmedia discs including CD's, MP3 and DVD as well as offering iPod and USB integration for those who don't carry around CD's any more. A standard TV tuner is also fitted to the car and TV or DVD videos can be viewed on the center touch screen, or an auxilliary screen infront of the passenger seat.

Working in tandem with Command, a communications array has also been set up within the S-Series. Bluetooth integration is offered throughout the cabin of the car, allowing the driver to answer phonecalls handsfree simply by pushing a button on the steering wheel. In addition, a SIM card can be installed into the car so that the car can make phone calls itself without the driver reaching for his hand-held phone. The owner can also use the system to browse the internet when the car is not in motion.

Also fitted standard on all models is the LSN-A8 Sattelite Navigation system, which has storage space for thousands of locations and can access virtually every location in the world. On the Luxury models, the Suna Traffic Channel is also installed, providing the A8 with traffic updates and other important information. The A8 provides a street view function for the driver so that they can see the route planned out as it would be in their eyes, a speed camera and red light camera warning function, a changing speed limit warning function which can even intergrate with the cruise control system, spoken street names and voice control. The system works in tandem with the HUD if fitted, with arrows displaying on the windshield signalling for the driver where to go. This is stored in the cars 200GB Hard Drive, along with other command related features.

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

Image

From the outset in designing this car, we wanted to change the compact SUV class forever, as we achieved with out remarkable G-Series. We feel that compact SUVs shouldn't have to drive like trucks, nor should they be regarded as environmental vandals. The SUV game has changed, come and see for yourself.

Power, Luxury, Safety. Introducing the H-Series
Segment/Class Premium E-Segment / Full Size
Image

The H-Series is a car for those who appreciate the finer things in life. A car that offers performance, yet practicality. Sports car dynamics with limousine comfort. The H-Series has, since its birth in the 1980's, symbolised success and wealth. The H-Series isn't a car for passengers, it is a car for drivers, and sitting up front is always the most exciting part.

The entry level diesel options take the shape of the 1.8 Litre and the 2.5 Litre: An exceptional result in terms of agility, smoothness of operation, consumption figures and emissions has been achieved by the Forza engineers with the new-concept 4-cylinder diesel powerplant with three output levels.The engines are significantly stronger, yet at the same time thriftier and emit less carbon than their preceding models. Using high-precision piezo-injectors, fuel is injected rapidly and precisely at pressures of 2000 bar into the cylinder. The Variable Geometry Turbocharger that accompanies the engine assists in providing the amount of boost required to mix the right amount of air with the fuel. Newly-developed ceramic fast glowplugs improve the cold running behaviour, while two Lanchester balancer shafts enhance smoothness of operation, enabling the highest degree of ride comfort.

A V6 diesel option is also offered for those who seek more power than the smaller models. The impressive features of the 6-cylinder diesel engine is the smooth running characteristics and low consumption and emission figures. This clean, efficient, power delivery is thanks to Forza's second-generation direct petrol injection process, which involves spray-guided combustion and high-pressure injection via piezo injectors. In addition, a particulate filter reduces soot emissions to bring the V6 into line with even the most strict of emission laws.

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratios. With petroleum engines, the maximum fuel pressure during the compression stroke is limited, any value higher than the limit causes the fuel/air mixture to detonate rather than burn.
Yet, to attain greater power at the same engine speed, a greater volume of fuel must be burnt thus in turn needing more air. In order to meet this demand, forced induction is used in the form of Forza's twincharging system. To avoid detonation of the fuel/air mixture the compression ratio must be decreased, this is done by increasing the volume in the cylinder, in this case by the cylinder head being compressed and allowing the volume in the cylinder to increase. The cylinder head can be altered by a hydraulic system connected to the crank shaft which responds according to the load on the engine. In order to best meet the driving conditions being experienced, the inlet pressure and compression ratio is constantly adjusted.

The induction system is a variant of Forza's TwinCharger system; a single Roots-type Superchager is used to aspirate the engine at low RPM's with two Turbochargers, one for each bank of cylinders, aspirating the engine further down the rev-range. TwinCharging systems have a number of advantages over other forms of forced induction. Unlike Turbocharged engines, Twincharged engines do not experience turbo-lag, where the turbochargers are ineffective because they are not at operating speeds. Unlike supercharged engines, Twincharged engines can decouple the supercharger from the engine so that it won't drain power to operate while still maintaining boost from the turbochargers. The two forms of forced induction do not operate in parallel in a bid to avoid the extremely high manifold temperatures which would be produced by the supercharger blowing into the turbocharger.

The 3.2 Litre V6 is stroked version of the 3.0 Litre ACR V6 fitted to other models in the line up and offers an impressive 275kw of power along with 545nm of torque, delivered by a wide power band thanks to its twincharged set up. Using the variable compression technology and twin-charged set up, the 3.0 Litre reaches a specific output of 85kw/Litre while still retaining superb fuel economy and the reliability that you would never associate with a sport engine.
The V6 makes use of 'twin charging' where both a supercharger and a turbocharger are used to aspirate the engine. For lower engine speeds, the supercharger (which is driven directly by the engine) is used to provide boost, however when the exhaust pressure generated is sufficient to run the turbocharger, the supercharger shuts down so as not to consume power.

Two choices of V8 are offered across the range. The first selection is the naturally aspirated 5.4 Litre V8 engine, a silky smooth and responsive engine which puts its impressive power figures to good use through the highly advanced and capable transmission. The V8 makes use of technology such as cylinder deactivation, where the car can run on just four cyinders to better improve economy. Offered alongside the naturally aspirated V8 is a Supercharged version of the 5.4 Litre unit. The ProDrive Supercharger provides a low 0.8 bar pressure boost to slightly lift performance over the standard engine on paper, but in reality it gives a much linear throttle response with peak torque being reached much lower through the rev-range.

The first choice of performance engine is the 5.5 Litre naturally aspirared V10 engine. This powerful engine was inspired by Formula 1 race cars generates a stunning 375kw and 520nm an reaches a redline of 8250rpm, which is enough to see the H10 GT propelled to 100mph in little over thirteen seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 270km/h. The 5.5 Litre V10 uses strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving.

For those who desire even more, a twin turbo version of the 5.5 Litre V10 is available in the H10 GTR. Variable Geometry Turbochargers were selected to allow the aspect ratio of the turbocharger to be altered as the conditions change. This is done because optimum aspect ratio at low engine speeds is very different from that at high engine speeds. If the aspect ratio is too large, the turbo will fail to create boost at low speeds; if the aspect ratio is too small, the turbo will choke the engine at high speeds, leading to high exhaust manifold pressures, high pumping losses, and ultimately lower power output. By altering the geometry of the turbine housing as the engine accelerates, the turbo's aspect ratio can be maintained at its optimum. Because of this, VGTs have a minimal amount of lag, have a low boost threshold, and are very efficient at higher engine speeds. In exchange for a slightly lower redline, buyers can revel in an extra 50kw and 240nm over the naturally aspirated engine without losing any of the aural qualities produced by the naturally aspirated version. Performance is in an entirely different league, with 0-100kmh times dipping down into the mid-4 second range and the quarter mile demolished in just over 12 seconds.

All three engines are capable of running on 91RON and Slush Hydrogen, therefore they should be suited to most country's fuel suppliers. Hydrogen engines combine hydrogen atoms with oxygen, collecting the energy produced to power the car. Of course, the by product is water, non polluted. You can drink it if you like.Its simple and easy, the car of the future. Both cars also feature a petrol regeneration system, which freezes exhaust fumes to collect the unused fuel and feeds it back into the tank, reducing emissions by %40 and fuel consumption by %20.

Transmission on base models is an Aisin six-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.2 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the E-Series' serene yet dynamic personality. For those who prefer a manual shift, a Tremec T6 6-Speed manual is also available at no extra cost.

For the sportier models, the automatic transmission is substituted for the Tremec TCR Double Clutch Transmission. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7)whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears(2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driven roadwheels, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly. Shift times of less than 0.02 seconds can be expected. The Transmission can be fully automated or set to manual, and shift times can be changed so the driver may strike a balance between performance and comfort. The DCT also offers a launch control system which can be set by selecting drive, holding the gear lever to the right and fully compressing the throttle. Once pressure on the gearlever is released, the car will launch.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver to better suit their needs. In this system, the damper fluid contains metallic particles. Through the onboard computer, the dampers' compliance characteristics are controlled by an electromagnet. Essentially, increasing the current flow into the damper raises the compression/rebound rates, while a decrease softens the effect of the dampers. Information from wheel sensors (about suspension extension), steering, acceleration sensors and some others is used to calculate the optimized stiffness. Very fast reaction of the total system allows, for instance, make softer passing by a single wheel above a bump or a rock on the road.

The H-Series is a large car easily capable of seating five adults in its interior. From the outset, the H-Series was designed as nothing less than a large family car that offered interior space for a large family. Another benefit of a large interior, aside from passenger comfort, is the load carrying ability that the H-Series offers. The sedan version of the H-Series offers a large 520 litre boot with a 60/40 split folding rear seat which further increases the boot capacity to an enourmous 1640 litres. Theoretically, this is more than enough to carry anything from groceries to a bicycle. The H-Series also features items such as luggage belts, collapsible cargo nets and dividing cross bars to keep objects in the boot from rolling around in the cargo compartment.

The interior of the car is designed to be efficient and ergonomic of impeccable quality without being too brash. Sobering and somewhat austere, everything from the brushed aluminium switches to the sapphire backed gauges is designed to seamlessly fit in with the luxurious personality of the Forza H-Series. Only the highest quality leather makes it into the Forza plant, cows which come from areas of high humidity or too hot areas are turned away in favour of those from more temperate environments. Wood, unlike many cars, is real and is applied to the centre console and also to the rear seat divider. If the buyer finds wood not to be too his taste, he can suppliment wood for brushed aluminum or traditional plastic. Plastics used are designed not to be too brittle, too hard to too slippery yet be soft, inviting and tactile.

Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

The dashboard itself is dominated by the two huge dials which display the speed and engine speed of the Forza.

The H-Series comes standard with the premium audio system, comprising of a powererful 1.5kw array of eight speakers and two subwoofers mounted around the cabin. The centre media player which is located immediatley above the touch screen can play a range of mulitmedia discs including CD's, MP3 and DVD as well as offering iPod and USB integration for those who don't carry around CD's any more. A standard TV tuner is also fitted to the car and TV or DVD videos can be viewed on the center touch screen, or an auxilliary screen infront of the passenger seat. The Rear Seat Entertainment pack can either include a single 12 Inch Fold-down Screen mounted centrally or two 8 inch screens mounted in the rear of the front seat headrests. Using the TV Tuner or DVD player, rear seat passengers can indulge in a movie or television tuner to make the journey pass by sooner. The rear seat entertainment system is completely independent of the front seat multimedia; its possible for the driver to be listening to the radio while the rear seat passengers are watching video.

Working in tandem with Command, a communications array has also been set up within the S-Series. Bluetooth integration is offered throughout the cabin of the car, allowing the driver to answer phonecalls handsfree simply by pushing a button on the steering wheel. In addition, a SIM card can be installed into the car so that the car can make phone calls itself without the driver reaching for his hand-held phone. The owner can also use the system to browse the internet when the car is not in motion.

The H-Series features the sophisticated and clever LSN-B2 Sattelite Navigation system. The B2 has access to 'street view' functions, a worldwide map coverage with extreme detail and extremely precise location finding. The B2 also features voice control, alerts for speed and redlight cameras, and a feedback request for any missing information. The B2 can be used to analyse multiple routes, work in tandem with the traffic channel and deduce what will be the quickest possible route for your destination. Also fitted standard with the LSN-B2 is the Suna traffic channel, providing updates of traffic jams, accidents, roadworks etc which allows the driver to avoid possible traffic delays. The LSN-B2 provides a street view function for the driver so that they can see the route planned out as it would be in their eyes, a speed camera and red light camera warning function, a changing speed limit warning function which can even intergrate with the cruise control system, spoken street names and voice control. The system works in tandem with the HUD if fitted, with arrows displaying on the windshield signalling for the driver where to go. This is stored in the cars 200GB Hard Drive, along with other command related features.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

Interior Lighting can also be controlled by the Smartlight system. The Interior Lighting pack which comes standard with Luxury models comprises of a set of five reading lights and one overhead lamp in the centre of the vehicle. There are no on and off buttons; occupants can turn the lights on simply by touching them. The lights can also be brightened or dimmed simply by moving ones hand from the center to the right of left of the light.

Radar Cruise Control is a feature which is also offered standard on Luxury models. Like a normal system, the driver sets this speed and then can let the car maintain this speed with minimal input from the driver. Unlike a normal system, RCC can detect when another slower moving vehicle is blocking the path of the car and will automatically reduce speed to avoid a collision. When the vehicle in front speeds up, the car will follow however will not exceed the limit preset by the driver. RCC is controlled by the Magic Wand stalk on the steering column. To set the system, the driver moves the column up and the system activates, holding the current speed. To increase speed, the driver can push the stalk forward which increases speed by 1km/h or hold it forward to increase in 10km/h increments. The driver can also set the distance between cars in front and behind simply by flicking the knob to select a preset distance. 50m, 30m, 20m, 10m 5m and 'BMW-Close' settings are all available.

Further active safety featues are available. One is LastChance braking system: using the radar employed by the cruise control, if the car detects a stationary or slow moving object infront of the car, an alarm will sound and the steering wheel will vibrate to alert the driver to this hazard. Should the driver not act in time, the car will brake with maximum force to minimize the impact of the collision. Another is Fatigue Warning. The car will monitor the grip on the steering wheel and the eye movements of a driver, if the driver is detected to be fatigued, the car will suggest the driver pulls over for a stop by lighting up a fatigue alert on the dashboard screen. Blind spot monitiors are also available to alert the driver to any cars likely to be hit should the driver choose to change lanes; cars are represented by red lines on either side of the dashboard screen. Lane Departure warnings alert the driver when the car begins to stray outside of the lane, and lastly, a Heads-Up-Display projects speed, gear and RPM's onto the windshield so the driver doesn't have to take his eyes off the road to check his speed.

Because the ones below, are too expensive
Segment/Class Premium Entry level Sports coupe
Image
The long awaited third addition to our performance stable, joining the ranks of the stunning S-Series and the race-bred R-Series is finally here. The T-Series coupe and cabrio, the entry level sports coupe, the finishing touch to our lineup.

The T-Series design brief was to find a mid engined sports car that could be competitively priced yet still offer a driving rush which is so often associated with Forza, particularly the models towards the higher echelons of the pricing range.

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratio's. Petrol engines have a limit on the maximum pressure during the compression stroke, after which the fuel/air mixture detonates rather than burns. To achieve higher power outputs at the same speed, more fuel must be burnt and therefore more air is needed. To achieve this, turbochargers or superchargers are used to increase the inlet pressure. This would result in detonation of the fuel/air mixture unless the compression ratio was decreased, i.e. the volume above the piston made greater. This can be done to greater or lesser extent with massive increases in power being possible. The down side of this is that under light loading, the engine can lack power and torque. The solution is to be able to vary the inlet pressure and adjust the compression ratio to suit. This gives the best of both worlds, a small efficient engine that behaves exactly like a modern family car engine but turns into a highly tuned one on demand.

The inline four engine is the entry level engine of the range and exists as an engine that is aimed towards returning optimal fuel economy instead of high performance driving. Using ACR Technology, the inline four returns superb fuel economy and generates more than enough power to give the E-Series unparalled performance for a medium sized car. For many buyers, the 160kw and 320nm L4 engine will provide all the power they could ever want in a car of this calibre. As well as ACR technology, the 1.8 Litre makes use of 'twin charging' where both a supercharger and a turbocharger are used to aspirate the engine. For lower engine speeds, the supercharger (which is driven directly by the engine) is used to provide boost, however when the exhaust pressure generated is sufficient to run the turbocharger, the supercharger shuts down so as not to consume power.

One rung above the 1.8 Litre engine lies the 2.5 Litre engine, also twincharged with ACR Technology. Far more than just a bored out and stroked version of the 1.8, the 2.5 Litre engine is aimed at buyers who prefer a sportier driving experience or those who tow regularly. Although producing only 40kw more than the 1.8 litre engine, the 2.5 produces 400nm of torque across a very wide band promising a linear power delivery and a smooth, responsive throttle.

The final option of engine is the 4.2 Litre Naturally Aspirated V8. Designed by principles from a time where Variable Geometry Turbochargers and Adaptable Compression Ratio Technology did not exist, the V8 option is an engine like no other in the E-Series range. The 4.2 Litre V8 and its related 5.5 Litre V10 counterpart are true drivers engines; high revs, high performance and scintillating aural qualities. The four valves per cylinder V8 uses strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving. Outputs of 350kw are delivered near the redline of 9000rpm with 440nm of torque available from 5000rpm. When this is teamed with the lightened Modena version, performance is taken to a whole new level.


Image

Both petroleum engines are capable of running on 91RON and Slush Hydrogen, therefore they should be suited to most country's fuel suppliers.The E-Series can run on slush Hydrogen, which has no effect on the environment. Hydrogen engines combine hydrogen atoms with oxygen, collecting the energy produced to power the car. Of course, the by product is water, non polluted. You can drink it if you like.Its simple and easy, the car of the future. Both cars also feature a petrol regeneration system, which freezes exhaust fumes to collect the unused fuel and feeds it back into the tank, reducing emissions by %40 and fuel consumption by %20.

Transmission on base models is an Aisin six-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.2 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the T-Series' serene yet dynamic personality. For those who prefer a manual shift, a Tremec T6 6-Speed manual is also available at no extra cost.

For the sportier models, the automatic transmission is substituted for the Tremec TCR Double Clutch Transmission. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7)whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears(2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driven roadwheels, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly. Shift times of less than 0.02 seconds can be expected. The Transmission can be fully automated or set to manual, and shift times can be changed so the driver may strike a balance between performance and comfort.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver.

Image

The interior of the car is designed as a nice place to be for the driver and occupants. Driving should not be regarded as a chore, but in a harsh environment, driving can be regarded as tedious or uncomfortable. The T-Series is elegantly decorated with, leather and aluminium finish, giving the car a rather subdued elegance feel, rather than a drab plastic interior or a glitzy stand out cover job featured on some other cars. At the centre of the console, is a large 9" touchscreen monitor which can be used to access the Command function.

Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car, eg Climate Control, Audio, Engine response, gear change settings, suspension settings. Command can be used by the large turning knob and arrow buttons to use, however express buttons to control frequently used features such as climate and radio are also provided in banks below the monitor.

The T-Series comes in 3 spec levels and two body styles, starting at $26,000 for the base T4 coupe model and finishing at $43,500 for the T6 Volante Modena cabriolet. The three spec levels are the base spec, the Avantgarde spec; which adds a list of luxury items, and the Modena spec; which adds a sporting touch to the Avantgarde spec list. From this, there really is something for everyone, and can make the T-Series into a daily driver and weekend warrior.

The T-Series with a 8 speaker 400 watt stereo system with an am/fm sattelite and MP3/CD/WMA/AAC capabilities. iPod/MP3 intergration is available with a standard fitted dock. Handsfree phone connection, steering wheel mounted controls and bluetooth also comes standard. If this isn't enough for you, the Luxury models include Premium Audio.
Also fitted on the Luxury models is the rear-seat entertainment package featuring a 10.2 inch overhead screen with a built in DVD player, independently capable of simultaneous accessing of DHA-S290 if installed. It features a built-in FM Modulator, two pair of wireless IR headphones, Universal Remote Control, 2 Aux Input / 1 Aux Out and S-Video Input.

Image

Also fitted standard on all models is the LSN-A8 Sattelite Navigation system, which has storage space for thousands of locations and can access virtually every location in the world. On the Luxury models, the Suna Traffic Channel is also installed, providing the A8 with traffic updates and other important information. The A8 provides a street view function for the driver so that they can see the route planned out as it would be in their eyes, a speed camera and red light camera warning function, a changing speed limit warning function which can even intergrate with the cruise control system, spoken street names and voice control. The system works in tandem with the HUD if fitted, with arrows displaying on the windshield signalling for the driver where to go. This is stored in the cars 200GB Hard Drive, along with other command related features.

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

Any where, Any way, Any time. If that sounds appealing, so will this
Segment/Class Large Luxury SUV
Image

The G-Series is a no compromise SUV designed to be just at home on sand, gravel or mud as it is on smooth highway tarmac. Class leading technological developments in suspension, drivetrain and cabin make the G-Series one of the most clever vehicles on the road, or one of the most clever to leave it. Combine this with a luxuriously appointed yet functionally practical cabin, unbeatable safety credentials as well as the rugged durability which has made the G-Series an icon for the past twenty years and you have the world's best luxury SUV.

Although a large SUV might not be regarded as being typically friendly to the environment, the G-Series offers a range of engines that save fuel, reduce nasty emissions like carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, yet offer class leading outputs to match any vehicle with performance. Clever technologies like Variable Valve Timing, Cylinder deactivation and electronic throttle control create the perfect compromise between power and economy.

The entry level diesel option is the 4.0 Litre Straight Six Single Turbo Diesel. Over the past twenty years, the 4.0 Litre Straight six engine has survived in three different forms to power one of the worlds best SUV's, now that engine has been brought into the twenty first century.The engine are significantly stronger, yet at the same time thriftier and emit less carbon than their preceding models. Using high-precision piezo-injectors, fuel is injected rapidly and precisely at pressures of 2000 bar into the cylinder. The Variable Geometry Turbocharger that accompanies the engine assists in providing the amount of boost required to mix the right amount of air with the fuel. Newly-developed ceramic fast glowplugs improve the cold running behaviour of the engine to avoid knocks and other undesireable behaviour. With the straight six taking home numerous awards in it's long history for it's smoothness of operation and quietness, it is surely one of the best diesel engines available today.

A V8 diesel option is also offered above the straight six for those who seek more power and torque. The impressive features of the 8-cylinder diesel engine is the smooth running characteristics and low consumption and emission figures. This clean, efficient, power delivery is thanks to Forza's second-generation direct petrol injection process, which involves spray-guided combustion and high-pressure injection via piezo injectors. In addition, a particulate filter reduces soot emissions to bring the V8 into line with even the most strict of emission laws. Not only this, but the V8 offers cylinder deactivation which works to shut down cylinders that aren't required in order to conserve fuel.

The only petrol engine on offer throughout the G-Series range takes the form of the rugged and dependable 5.4 litre V8, a silky smooth and responsive engine which puts its impressive power figures to good use through the highly advanced and capable transmission. The V8 makes use of technology such as cylinder deactivation, where the car can run on just four cyinders to better improve economy. The ProDrive Supercharger provides a low 0.8 bar pressure boost to slightly lift performance over the standard engine on paper, but in reality it gives a much linear throttle response with peak torque being reached much lower through the rev-range. The 5.4 Litre V8 is an impressive engine with exciting performance and an equisite engine note which makes it the perfect choice for the driving fan in you.

The final and most powerful engine available is the 5.5 Litre Twin Turbocharged monster capable of producing an incredible 900 newton metres of torque from as low as 1500rpm and to hold that figure until 4000. The diesel V12 promises a luxurious, quiet and refined ride experience for those who would prefer their luxury sedan to be motivated with diesel power. The gruff sounding noise that is associated with diesel engines has been replaced with a soundtrack of more pleasing aural experiences.

Transmission on base models is an Aisin six-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin six speed gearbox is a proven system reknown for it's smoothness and cohesiveness with the car. Lightweight internals and gearsets are part of the update of the six speed over the previous generation. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.2 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the G-Series' serene personality. For those who prefer a manual shift, a Tremec T6 6-Speed manual is also available at no extra cost.

For buyers who opt for the V12 or supercharged V8 engines, gears will be shifted via Aisin's new 8 speed automatic gearbox which not only offers the same serenity of the six speed, but the presence of two extra ratios keeps the engine at optimal performance more often than not and with the quick shifting torque converter, you won't even know the gears have been changed. The advantage of eight gears over the previous generation six speed, and for that matter other gear boxes with lesser gear ratios, is profound. The ideal ratio for the driving situation is easier to find and eliminates the vehicle and driver's need to hunt for the correct gear. With low friction gear sets and a lightweight case, the new Aisin gearbox for the G-Series transfers 5% more power to the driven wheels than the previous generation gearbox and improves fuel efficiency by 20%.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver.

When this is teamed with the TerrainCommand system, the driver can set the car to automatically respond to any changing landscape ahead or the driver can adjust the ride height, rebound, stiffness etc to suit any situation they see fit. Likewise, the electronic safety programs will also respond to any requests from the TerrainCommand system.


The G-Series comes standard with premium audio. A 1.25kw eight speaker system with ear splitting clarity. Premium audio features and am/fm/satellite and CD MP3/WMA/AAC RECEIVER. A standard dock is fitted for portable music players and smart phones and is bluetooth ready. Hands free phone connection, voice and steering wheel mounted controls all come standard.
Standard on all models is the rear-seat entertainment package featuring a huge 12 inch overhead screen, with a built in DVD/bluetooth player, independently capable of simultaneous accessing of DHA-S290 if installed. It features a built-in FM Modulator, two pair of wireless IR headphones, Universal Remote Control, 2 Aux Input / 1 Aux Out and S-Video Input. The G-Series is also gaming system ready.
If all this isn't enough, the Luxury models feature Ultimate Audio and Premium rear entertainment.

The G-Series features the sophisticated and clever LSN-B2 Sattelite Navigation system. The B2 has access to 'street view' functions, a worldwide map coverage with extreme detail and extremely precise location finding. The B2 also features voice control, alerts for speed and redlight cameras, and a feedback request for any missing information. Also fitted standard with the LSN-B2 is the Suna traffic channel, providing updates of traffic jams, accidents, roadworks etc.

The G-Series is offered 2 spec levels, base model and luxury. If your nation has a rough patch, you might well need one of these to clear it. A far better alternative to a military Hummer, cleaner, cheaper and greener. Much quicker and much more comfortable too.

A unique feature on the G-Series is the Hard-Car Option. This adds an inset Bullbar, and re inforced body allowing this 2 tonne SUV to plow through any obstacles in its path. It also adds Kevlar in the doors and roof, a puncture proof fuel tank and runflat tyres, adding un-paralelled protection for the occupants, and an perfect addition to a government motorcade. The Hard-Car can take almost anything, and dish-out even more.

Executive travel: Speed, comfort and protection are paramount. M-Series
Segment/Class I-Segment/ Fullsize Ultra Luxury
Image

The M-Series is designed as a large, no expenses spared, automobile for those who desire comfort and luxury above all else. It has long been a symbol of status and success both within and outside of Forza. Buying an M-Series is an extremely personal matter, and almost every aspect of the car can be adjusted to suit your needs.

The smooth curvacious lines of the new M-Series mark a look to the past for inspiration to design a car which represented the most luxurious and refined personal travel possible. The curves of the rear, the gaping grille and swooping roofline are all centred around and inspired by cars of days gone by, when owning such a vehicle, or even a vehicle at all, spoke volumes of one's monetary worth. However in the modern world, even the exterior design of a car must be keeping up with technology and the clever M-Series proves to all that old traditions and a modern world need not be in violent collision with one another.

The sleek lines of the M-Series were first pinned by small but famous design house Cordoba in 2008. The designers of Cordoba wanted a car which was elegant, yet imposing and subtly sporty to reflect the nature of the M-Series. Rather than aping the slab sided and box shape of many of the M's competitors, Cordoba embarked on a new styling adventure designed to appeal to the young, and young at heart. Thus, the M-Series was conceived as the kind of car where the owner could ride in either the front without feeling like a limousine operator, or ride in the back without feeling like a limousine client.

The M-Series now offeres a choice of five different engines across two different body styles ensuring that the customer will find a product that suits their personal tastes and financial capabilities.

The first option is the standard 5.8 Litre V8 naturally aspirated with Direct Injection and Cylinder De-activation technology. Although the standard engine across the range, the V8 promises a smooth and quiet ride experience with a wealth of torque and power on hand when the demand arises. Although not having the legs to keep up with other more powerful engines offered on the M-Series, the V8 is a quiet achiever; an impeccably refined piece of technology that is well suited to a luxury car.

Of course those who seek a more sportier ride experience may look at the M8 Sport which offers a Supercharged version of the standard 5.8 Litre V8. The Supercharged variant promises a huge surge of torque at virtually any engine speed with a symphonic exhaust note. To reduce the whine of the Supercharger, the engine is fitted with sound deadening technology around the mechanical turbine to reduce the amount of noise from the supercharger entering the cabin and disrupting the environment. At high RPMs, the engine can still be heard in full noise.

The next step up is the diesel V12, a 5.5 Litre twin turbo charged monster capable of producing an incredible 900 newton metres of torque from as low as 1500rpm and to hold that figure until 4000. The diesel V12 promises a luxurious, quiet and refined ride experience for those who would prefer their luxury sedan to be motivated with diesel power. The gruff sounding noise that is associated with diesel engines has been replaced with a soundtrack of more pleasing aural experiences.

The first of the petroleum V12's is the naturally aspirated 6.5 Litre; an enourmous engine with a superb engine note. The strong pulling V12 promises an incredible performance with figures of 350 kilowatts and 650 newton metres of torque. Despite the immense outputs, the naturally aspirated V12 is a refined and easy going piece of engineering that offers a smooth and silky ride experience for the person who deserves it most, you.

The final option of engine, and the most powerful available, is the Twin Turbocharged variant of the 6.5 Litre V12. With staggering outputs of 470 kilowatts and a whopping 1050 newton metres of torque, the Twin Turbocharged V12 can bring the M-Series from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds, faster than many sports cars and lesser sports sedans; something very impressive for a vehicle weighing two tonnes. Every time you depress the accelerator to overtake the vehicle travelling in front of you, feel the engine squeeze you back in your seat and the smile creep across your face as this car rockets forward in a way a two tonne car has no right to. Once the vehicle has disappeared behind you, you can enjoy the peace and quiet once more as the engine quietens down and doesn't disturb the cabin with its roar any longer.

Image

All engines feature cylinder deactivation technology. Cylinder deactivation is used to reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of an internal combustion engine during light load operation. In typical light load driving the driver uses only around a quarter to a third of an engine’s maximum power. In these conditions, the throttle valve is nearly closed and the engine needs to work hard to draw air for combustion. This causes an inefficiency known as pumping loss. Some large capacity engines need to be throttled so much at light load that the cylinder pressure at the zenith of the cylinder is approximately half that of a small engine half the size. Low cylinder pressure means low fuel efficiency and fuel consumption begins to sky rocket.

The use of cylinder deactivation at light load means there are fewer cylinders drawing air from the intake manifold which works to increase its fluid (air) pressure. Operation without variable displacement is wasteful because fuel is continuously pumped into each cylinder and combusted even though maximum performance is not required. By shutting down half of an engine's cylinders the amount of fuel being consumed is much less. Between reducing the pumping losses which increases pressure in each operating cylinder and decreasing the amount of fuel being pumped into the cylinders. Fuel consumption for large capacity Forza engines can be reduced by 20 to 35 percent in highway conditions.

Cylinder deactivation is done by keeping the intake and exhaust valves closed for a particular cylinder once the cylinder is filled with fuel and oxygen. By keeping the intake and exhaust valves closed, it creates a spring effect in the combustion chamber – the trapped gases are compressed during the piston’s upstroke and push down on the piston during its downstroke. The compression and decompression of the trapped exhaust gases have an equalising effect; overall, there is virtually no extra load on the engine so the engine does not need to work harder.

In this latest generation of cylinder deactivation systems, the engine management system is also used to cut fuel delivery to the disabled cylinders using Forza's Variable ValveTechnology (VVT). The transition between normal engine operation and cylinder deactivation is also smoothed using changes in ignition timing, cam timing and throttle position thanks to electronic throttle control and VVT.

Image

Transmission on both cars is an Aisin six-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.05 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the M-Series' serene yet dynamic personality.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with memory for ten other choices which can be preset by the driver or the passenger to better suit their needs. The passenger themself can stiffen or soften the rear suspension to give them the best possible ride.

In this system, the damper fluid contains metallic particles. Through the onboard computer, the dampers' compliance characteristics are controlled by an electromagnet. Essentially, increasing the current flow into the damper raises the compression/rebound rates, while a decrease softens the effect of the dampers. Information from wheel sensors (about suspension extension), steering, acceleration sensors and some others is used to calculate the optimized stiffness. Very fast reaction of the total system allows, for instance, make softer passing by a single wheel above a bump or a rock on the road.

The M-Series is a large car easily capable of seating five adults in its interior, how. From the outset, the M-Series was designed as nothing less than a large car that offered enough interior space for comfort and comfort features, along with a range of other items. Another benefit of a large interior, aside from passenger comfort, is the load carrying ability that the M-Series offers. The M-Series also features items such as luggage belts, collapsible cargo nets and dividing cross bars to keep objects in the boot from rolling around in the cargo compartment.

The interior of the car is designed as a nice place to be for the driver and occupants. Driving should not be regarded as a chore, but in a harsh environment, driving can be regarded as tedious or uncomfortable. The M-Series is elegantly decorated with wood, leather and aluminium finish, giving the car a rather subdued elegance feel, rather than a drab plastic interior or a glitzy stand out cover job featured on some other cars. At the centre of the console, is a large 12" touchscreen monitor which can be used to access the Command function as well as the ALC Calypso navigation system. The M-Series offers a vast range of interior designs and colour options, and almost every detail of the exterior can be altered. Some options you might revel in are: larger television screens can be fitted to the rear seats, wireless internet is provided through your ISP, and the rear seat features several 24V sockets to allow the running of modern appliances such as laptops. Massage chairs can be fitted, as can options like bottle coolers, between the rear seats for corporate entertaining in style. Should you value your work, veneered writing desks and pens are an option, all for no cost at all. Quad zone climate control is standard, so if you and your cheffuer reside poles apart, you can both be comfortable.
When ordering your vehicles, please specify any features you would like added which can be done through our luxury coach builder.

Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car, eg Climate Control, Audio, Engine response, gear change settings, suspension settings. Command can be used by the large turning knob and arrow buttons to use, however express buttons to control frequently used features such as climate and radio are also provided in banks below the monitor.

Image

The M-Series comes with the ultimate in audio and entertainment. Featured is a 1500 watt 12 speaker system with zero sound distortion that can play MP3 CD's WMA/AAC files and project MP4/DVD videos onto the screens mounted in the rear of the seats and also onto the windshield throught the ALC Calypso Navigation System. The Ultimate system includes a portable music player dock which is fitted in a matching colour to the leather and a bluetooth system allowing you to connect your telephone to the vehicle in order to access music. Also fitted is standard steering wheel mounted controls so that the driver does not have to take his hands off the wheel whilst driving. All the information required to run the audio system is displayed on the standard fitted 12 inch Command screen. The high end entertainment package features two 15 inch LCD screens mounted in the rear of the front seats which can play BlueRay, HD and DVD movies. A built in HD tuner and sattelite is fitted allowing passengers to watch HD free-to-air TV or sattelite paid TV should they choose. A third LCD screen mounted to the rear of the centre console is also available.

As one could expect, Calypso is more than just a satellite navigation system - indeed, it can be described more as a virtual co-driver, plus a serious in-car entertainment suite. Calypso includes 2 front-mounted, 2 rear-mounted and 4 side-mounted visual/IR cameras, and front and rear active ultrasonic scanners, scanning the surroundings.
For processing all this data, the system includes a powerful (16-pipeline 3,200 MHz RISC) computer system, which compares the 3D data from the satellites to the positional information and camera input. Calypso also functions like a personal computer, offering the user 8 TB of hard drive space for films, games, music, and anything else. With a broadband network connection, it can be used for tasks ranging from browsing and high-speed downloading to stock trading.

While all the same 5" to 16" touchscreens as in Tarvos are available, and a full voice input is integrated, an innovation in Calypso is an optional display system derived from the one installed in ALC fighter jets. It involves installing a high-grade cathode ray projection system into the dashboard into the roof and applying a thin film selective-band reflector to the windscreen. With a resolution of up to 2x3200x2000 in the top model, Calypso is capable of projecting color images directly on the screen. Such images can include navigational markers, warnings, and, at dark time, a night vision view of the road ahead, overlaid with the actual visible image. Of course, the passenger's part of the windscreen (and the driver's part when not in motion) can be also used for entertainment purposes

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

The luxury coach builder Tickford lets you take the process of personalisation even further. The sky's the limit, allowing you to create a unique car that is an expression of your personality.

To enter into the Tickford program, you can discuss your ideas with your Forza dealership or come to our factory in Medion to explore the possibilities of your idea with our team. We'll discuss everything with you, from the smallest details to the biggest statements - whatever you have in mind. It may be something subtle - white dials, a special clock face or a discreet humidor. You could go further and choose an integrated cooler/glass holder to fit in the base of the luggage compartment. Our experts will bring them to life. Whatever you dream up, we will find a way to make it a reality

Interior Lighting can also be controlled by the Smartlight system. The Interior Lighting pack which comes standard with Luxury models comprises of a set of five reading lights and one overhead lamp in the centre of the vehicle. There are no on and off buttons; occupants can turn the lights on simply by touching them. The lights can also be brightened or dimmed simply by moving ones hand from the center to the right of left of the light.

The 'Persona' program allows the M-Series to instantly recognize it's driver or it's VIP passenger from the moment they touch the door handle and will reconfigure itself accordingly. The first part of this process is done by fingerprint sensors placed in the doorhandles, and the remote key fob. When the driver places his hand on the key fob, or the passenger places their hand on the underside of the doorhandle, their fingerprint is detected and the occupant may enter the car via a self unlocking system and even a self-door opening sytem.

The car then goes about reconfiguring its rear seats, front seat or driving configuration to cater for the person who it detected. Memory for up to ten different drivers and passengers can be stored, comprising of everything alterable within the Command function, steering wheel, seat and pedal position, cabin lighting and even dial colour within the interior.

One of the more spectacular and pricey features on the M-Series is the panorama sunroof which runs the entire length of the cabin. The sunroof is constructed from high-strength plexiglass to avoid breakage, even from the most savage of impacts onto the roof. The covering is constructed from two sheets of thin Colorbond Steel with 5cm of insulation between the two sheets, providing superb insulation from the harsh sun above. When the sunroof is retracted, the plexiglass can be dimmed automatically so that less of the light penetrates into the cabin of the car. The front portion of the sunroof can be lifted up on an angle of of 15 degrees and slided forward to allow the open air access to the interior of the car.

Further active safety featues are available. One is LastChance braking system: using the radar employed by the cruise control, if the car detects a stationary or slow moving object infront of the car, an alarm will sound and the steering wheel will vibrate to alert the driver to this hazard. Should the driver not act in time, the car will brake with maximum force to minimize the impact of the collision. Another is Fatigue Warning. The car will monitor the grip on the steering wheel and the eye movements of a driver, if the driver is detected to be fatigued, the car will suggest the driver pulls over for a stop by lighting up a fatigue alert on the dashboard screen. Blind spot monitiors are also available to alert the driver to any cars likely to be hit should the driver choose to change lanes; cars are represented by red lines on either side of the dashboard screen. Lane Departure warnings alert the driver when the car begins to stray outside of the lane, and lastly, a Heads-Up-Display projects speed, gear and RPM's onto the windshield so the driver doesn't have to take his eyes off the road to check his speed.

Add all these factors together and the M-Series makes a compelling statement for an executive sedan. Whether the buyers interests lie in the driver seat, or in the rear passenger seat, they can relax in the luxuriously appointed interior and revel in the comfort and tactility of their car.

The Z-Series. A return to mid-engined perfection
Segment/Class Supercar
Image
For the reborn Z-Series, the engine of course had to be a V8. Not just any V8, the new engine needed to be compact with a high redline and a thrilling sound. The new V8 was selected as a 4.8 Litre unit, relatively small in the bore yet long in the stroke to give the kind of performance that was desired. Using four valves per cylinder, variable cam timing and high precision fuel injectors, the 4.8 Litre V8 can attain engine speeds of 9000rpm. Because of these high engine speeds, regular Aermet steel internals wouldn't do so engineers instead used strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving. As a result, the Z8 puts out 430kw of power at 8000rpm with a peak torque figure of 540nm reached at 6500rpm. Performance, is incredible. 0-100km/h is demolished in 3.7 seconds.

For those who desire even more, a twin turbo version of the 4.8 Litre V8 is available in the R Version of the Z-Series. Variable Geometry Turbochargers were selected to allow the aspect ratio of the turbocharger to be altered as the conditions change. This is done because optimum aspect ratio at low engine speeds is very different from that at high engine speeds. If the aspect ratio is too large, the turbo will fail to create boost at low speeds; if the aspect ratio is too small, the turbo will choke the engine at high speeds, leading to high exhaust manifold pressures, high pumping losses, and ultimately lower power output. By altering the geometry of the turbine housing as the engine accelerates, the turbo's aspect ratio can be maintained at its optimum. Because of this, VGTs have a minimal amount of lag, have a low boost threshold, and are very efficient at higher engine speeds. In exchange for a slightly lower redline, buyers can revel in an extra 50kw and 240nm over the naturally aspirated engine without losing any of the aural qualities produced by the naturally aspirated version. Performance is in an entirely different league, with 0-100kmh times dipping down into the mid-3 second range and the quarter mile demolished in just over 11 seconds.

Transmission on both cars is a Tremec TCR seven-speed double clutch automated manual, with full a full automatic shift mode. The Tremec TCR double clutch gearbox shifts gears with rifle bolt precision and can slam home ratios like no other. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7)whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears(2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driven roadwheels, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly.
For those who desire a more direct feel, a six-speed manual can be substituted in place of the double-clutch transmission for no extra cost.

Image

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver.

Instead of taking a more traditional approach when it came to interior design, Forza teamed up with software specialists nVidia to create an interior display like nothing else. Two LCD screens were installed in the car, one between the tachometer and the speedometer on the dash directly infront of the driver, and another much larger touch screen display mounted on the centre console. In additon, a Heads-Up-Display function was also enabled to project the cars speed and gear directly onto the windshield infront of the driver. Gauges were designed by Watchmaker Surrat, along with a centrally mounted analouge clock with sapphire backing.

The cabin is upholstered in the finest leather quality available; it takes three cows to provide enough leather to fully upholster the S-Series. Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease. Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car and controls everything from the multimedia system to the climate control and the cars suspension to providing warnings of flat tyres.

Just like in Formula 1, the Z8 driver can change the set-up of his car using the innovative Race Command feature set on the steering wheel. The selector is an up/down switch that has been inspired from racing, where the driver's total commitment to driving requires maximum efficiency and speed in controlling the car's various functions.

This switch quickly and simply controls the electronics governing suspension settings, the CST stability and traction control, E-Diff and the change speed of the DCT transmission, as well as the integration between each of these individual functions. The position of the RaceCommand is meant to be where a driver can easily access the switch without compromising his driving ability..

The Race Command enables car settings to be changed to suit the personal preferences of the driver, road surface conditions and available grip. The settings available to the driver have been concentrated in five different strategies with a sixth slot available to be custom set by the driver.

ICE: performance is significantly restricted (maximum intervention by the stability and traction control) for maximum stability - indispensable for driving in very slippery conditions (snow or ice). The car reacts smoothly to driving inputs. The automatic gear-changing mode is selected which prevents gear changes at high revs and reduces the possibility of the rear wheels locking up on downchanges, even on ice.

LOW GRIP: this position ensures stability both on dry and wet surfaces. It is therefore recommended for surfaces with poor grip (rain), gritty roads or particularly broken or undulating tarmac. In this configuration, unlike ICE, the driver can still use the manual gear shift mode. The adaptive suspension setting is optimised to provide a very comfortable ride without impeding the handling balance, and the stability and traction control remains in the ICE configuration.

SPORT: this is the standard setting that strikes the best balance between stability and performance. Ideal for the open road, this position provides an optimum compromise for maximum performance and safety. Compared to the previous settings, SPORT adopts a more sporting configuration for the adaptive suspension to maximise performance, handling and stability at high speeds. The CST also goes up a level, giving the driver greater freedom, without excessively reigning in the engine.

RACE: This setting is designed for use solely on the race track. Gear changing is even faster to minimise gear-shifting times. CST intervention is reduced to a minimum (the engine management only cuts the engine when absolutely necessary). The damping also goes up one level.

CST: Deactivates the stability and traction control entirely. With the RaceCommand set to off, the driver has full control over the car's reactions. The only driver aids that remain active are those that cannot be overridden such as ABS and EBD (electronic brake distribution). With the CST de-activated, the electronic differential has a specific calibration, which permits the car's incredible levels of handling and roadholding when free of stability controls. Gearshift speeds and damper settings are the same as in RACE. Over and above the significant technological breakthrough that RaceCommand represents, the approach to the new Z8 underlines the importance given to exploiting the potential of the vehicle while maintaining ease of use under all conditions without jeopardising safety and stability.

The Z-Series features the sophisticated and clever LSN-B2 Sattelite Navigation system. The B2 has access to 'street view' functions, a worldwide map coverage with extreme detail and extremely precise location finding. The B2 also features voice control, alerts for speed and redlight cameras, and a feedback request for any missing information. The B2 can be used to analyse multiple routes, work in tandem with the traffic channel and deduce what will be the quickest possible route for your destination. Also fitted standard with the LSN-B2 is the Suna traffic channel, providing updates of traffic jams, accidents, roadworks etc which allows the driver to avoid possible traffic delays. The LSN-B2 provides a street view function for the driver so that they can see the route planned out as it would be in their eyes, a speed camera and red light camera warning function, a changing speed limit warning function which can even intergrate with the cruise control system, spoken street names and voice control. The system works in tandem with the HUD if fitted, with arrows displaying on the windshield signalling for the driver where to go. This is stored in the cars 1TB Hard Drive, along with other command related features.

Image

The Z-Series comes standard with the premium audio system, comprising of a powererful 1.25kw array of six speakers and two subwoofers mounted around the cabin. The centre media player which is located immediatley above the touch screen can play a range of mulitmedia discs including CD's, MP3 and DVD as well as offering iPod and USB integration for those who don't carry around CD's any more. A standard TV tuner is also fitted to the car and TV or DVD videos can be viewed on the center touch screen, or an auxilliary screen infront of the passenger seat.

Working in tandem with Command, a communications array has also been set up within the S-Series. Bluetooth integration is offered throughout the cabin of the car, allowing the driver to answer phonecalls handsfree simply by pushing a button on the steering wheel. In addition, a SIM card can be installed into the car so that the car can make phone calls itself without the driver reaching for his hand-held phone. The owner can also use the system to browse the internet when the car is not in motion.

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

For driving pleasure, for enjoying the scenery or just for showing off. S-Series
Segment/Class Luxury Grand Touring (GT) Supercar
Image

For the reborn Z-Series, the engine of course had to be a V8. Not just any V8, the new engine needed to be compact with a high redline and a thrilling sound. The new V8 was selected as a 4.8 Litre unit, relatively small in the bore yet long in the stroke to give the kind of performance that was desired.

Transmission on both cars is a Tremec TCR six-speed double clutch automated manual, with full automatic shift. The Tremec double clutch gearbox shifts gears with rifle bolt precision and can slam home ratios like no other. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes just 0.02 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the S-Series' serene yet dynamic personality.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car.

One of the more spectacular features on the S-Series is the panorama sunroof which runs the entire length of the cabin. The sunroof is constructed from high-strength plexiglass to avoid breakage, even from the most savage of impacts onto the roof. The covering is constructed from two sheets of thin Colorbond Steel with 5cm of insulation between the two sheets, providing superb insulation from the harsh sun above. When the sunroof is retracted, the plexiglass can be dimmed automatically so that less of the light penetrates into the cabin of the car. The front portion of the sunroof can be lifted up on an angle of of 15 degrees and slided forward to allow the open air access to the interior of the car.

The S-Series comes standard with the premium audio system, comprising of a powererful 1.25kw array of six speakers and two subwoofers mounted around the cabin.

The new R-Series. The legend is back

Image


The R-Series. 6.0 Litre V12. Redline at 8500rpm. 495kw. 720nm. 0-60mph 3.1 seconds. The statistics say it all.

The R12 is the flagship of Forza Automotive. As the blurb suggests, no other car does come close to providing the ferocity the R12 posseses. The new edition R12 was first designed in 2009, to replace a model which had become a cult hero to Forza, and the world. This R12 is the latest in a long line of cars which shares the R nameplate, dating back to the FR8 of 1952. The R12 is designed for one thing, and only one thing: the driver. We invite you, the driver, to enter the R12, revel in the comfort and luxury of the finally appointed cockit, and finally, to turn the key and push the limits of the road. The R12 is the ultimate in performance, surging forward with such a rush that few if any cars can hope to match.

The new R-Series began at the Forza Development Centre in Medion, Vitaphone Racing. The first part to be designed was the engine. Keeping with tradition, the new engine would be a Formula 1 inspired 6.0 Litre naturally aspirated V12, as with the old outgoing model. This engine, however, shares nothing in common with the old V12. The new V12, dubbed 'Typhoon' (5.0 V8 is known as 'Windsor', 4.8 V8 is known as 'Italia', 5.2 Litre V10 is known as 'Tornado') is an all aluminium, direct injection, water-cooled power plant with a DOHC and variable valve timing in the quest for power and efficiency. The use of alumium and titanium for some materials increases the redline to 8500rpm, an increase of 500rpm, and saves 40kg in terms of weight over the old engine. Power outputs are still fearsome. The Typhoon produces 495kw (+45kw) and 720nm (+20).

Transmission on both cars is a Tremec TCR seven-speed double clutch automated manual, with full a full automatic shift mode. The Tremec TCR double clutch gearbox shifts gears with rifle bolt precision and can slam home ratios like no other. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7)whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears(2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driven roadwheels, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver.

Instead of taking a more traditional approach when it came to interior design, Forza teamed up with software specialists nVidia to create an interior display like nothing else. Two LCD screens were installed in the car, one between the tachometer and the speedometer on the dash directly infront of the driver, and another much larger touch screen display mounted on the centre console. In additon, a Heads-Up-Display function was also enabled to project the cars speed and gear directly onto the windshield infront of the driver. Gauges were designed by Watchmaker Surrat, along with a centrally mounted analouge clock with sapphire backing.

The chassis was designed in the coastal town of Bayside, on the east coast of Forza. Bayside is home to one of the most famous and challenging roads in the world, Point Blanc Pass, a 120 kilometer strip of road, varying from smooth ashphalt to rough bitumen. The road has over 2000 corners, or in other words one corner every 60 metres. Here, the chassis of the countless test mules was examined and adjusted to suit this road with its varying conditions. Eventually, the chassis, and platform of the R-Series, was deemed to be suffient and the project moved back into the confines of the Forza Development facility.

Image


The body was the next phase to be designed. The new R-Series spent over 1000 hours in the wind tunnel, being honed against the elements and having constant adjustments made to the front and rear diffusers. The body shape of the new R-Series reflects this testing, having a much sharper and agressive look than the graceful curves of the beautiful out going model. However, this shape was designed to give the best possible airflow over the car, and the R-Series returns a Coefficient of Drag (CoD) of just 0.17, making it one of the most aerodynamic cars ever created. The rear spoiler can also be adjusted, using the RaceCommand function, to provide varying amounts of downforce depending on the conditions. The spoiler, which pops up at over 100km/h, can also be deactivated in the quest for more speed. Buyers can also opt for the fixed GT spoiler akin to the one used on Forza R12 racing vehicles.

After the body and chassis was complete, it was time to hone the suspension, therefore the production team moved back to the Point Blanc Pass to complete some spirited runs. After testing at the Point Blanc Pass, testing moved to the race circuit, and then to the inner city. The 20 R-Series prototypes racked up an incredible 10,000 hours testing, in extreme hot and cold, in wet and dry, and on nearly every kind of road imaginable. Data was logged and recorded, and also formated into a program which has become RaceCommand.

Finally, the interior designers got their turn to make history. The interior was designed to fit in with the radical lines and aggressive nature of the car itself. In stark contrast to the previous generation model, the interior was made to be more liveable, more luxurious and in general, a nice place to be. The interior is available in two different choices of upholstery, and both are available in 19 different colours. Each interior has a main and a secondary colour, each with 19 options creating over 360 different colour styles for each car. At the centre of the console sits a large, high resolution 12" touchscreen monitor which holds the Command function. Occupants can use Command for anything, from music to climate, from navigation to car settings. The R-Series also features an impressive list of options.

Instead of taking a more traditional approach when it came to interior design, Forza teamed up with software specialists nVidia to create an interior display like nothing else. Two LCD screens were installed in the car, one between the tachometer and the speedometer on the dash directly infront of the driver, and another much larger touch screen display mounted on the centre console. In additon, a Heads-Up-Display function was also enabled to project the cars speed and gear directly onto the windshield infront of the driver. Gauges were designed by Watchmaker Surrat, along with a centrally mounted analouge clock with sapphire backing.

The cabin is upholstered in the finest leather quality available; it takes three cows to provide enough leather to fully upholster the R-Series. Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease. Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car and controls everything from the multimedia system to the climate control and the cars suspension to providing warnings of flat tyres.

Image


The Steering wheel can be adjusted for height and reach, and also can be used to control the Command system instead of the touch screen or the click-wheel. This is done by using the Navigation button located on the right side of the wheel. The driver can also quickly access frequently used functions such as music and cruise control using shortcuts. In the case of music, there is a volume and station/track changer located on the left side of the steering wheel, and cruise control is changed by the cruise control switch. Pushing in the switch activates cruise control, bumping it up or down incrementally increases speed by 1km/h. Holding it down for longer increases speed by 10km/h. To turn cruise control off, the driver just has to tap the brake or change gears.

The gearlever to the middle of the console selects which mode the transmission is set to (ie, park, neutral, drive) Setting the gear lever to S (Sport) allows the driver to change gears using the paddle shifts either side of the steering wheel. Shifters move with the wheel and provide a direct feel to the gearbox.

Just like in Formula 1, the R12 driver can change the set-up of his car using the innovative Race Command feature set on the steering wheel. The selector is an up/down switch that has been inspired from racing, where the driver's total commitment to driving requires maximum efficiency and speed in controlling the car's various functions.

This switch quickly and simply controls the electronics governing suspension settings, the CST stability and traction control, E-Diff and the change speed of the DCT transmission, as well as the integration between each of these individual functions. The position of the RaceCommand is meant to be where a driver can easily access the switch without compromising his driving ability..

The Race Command enables car settings to be changed to suit the personal preferences of the driver, road surface conditions and available grip. The settings available to the driver have been concentrated in five different strategies with a sixth slot available to be custom set by the driver.

ICE: performance is significantly restricted (maximum intervention by the stability and traction control) for maximum stability - indispensable for driving in very slippery conditions (snow or ice). The car reacts smoothly to driving inputs. The automatic gear-changing mode is selected which prevents gear changes at high revs and reduces the possibility of the rear wheels locking up on downchanges, even on ice.

LOW GRIP: this position ensures stability both on dry and wet surfaces. It is therefore recommended for surfaces with poor grip (rain), gritty roads or particularly broken or undulating tarmac. In this configuration, unlike ICE, the driver can still use the manual gear shift mode. The adaptive suspension setting is optimised to provide a very comfortable ride without impeding the handling balance, and the stability and traction control remains in the ICE configuration.

SPORT: this is the standard setting that strikes the best balance between stability and performance. Ideal for the open road, this position provides an optimum compromise for maximum performance and safety. Compared to the previous settings, SPORT adopts a more sporting configuration for the adaptive suspension to maximise performance, handling and stability at high speeds. The CST also goes up a level, giving the driver greater freedom, without excessively reigning in the engine.

RACE: This setting is designed for use solely on the race track. Gear changing is even faster to minimise gear-shifting times. CST intervention is reduced to a minimum (the engine management only cuts the engine when absolutely necessary). The damping also goes up one level.

CST: Deactivates the stability and traction control entirely. With the RaceCommand set to off, the driver has full control over the car's reactions. The only driver aids that remain active are those that cannot be overridden such as ABS and EBD (electronic brake distribution). With the CST de-activated, the electronic differential has a specific calibration, which permits the car's incredible levels of handling and roadholding when free of stability controls. Gearshift speeds and damper settings are the same as in RACE. Over and above the significant technological breakthrough that RaceCommand represents, the approach to the new R12 underlines the importance given to exploiting the potential of the vehicle while maintaining ease of use under all conditions without jeopardising safety and stability.


So what is it like to drive the R12?

It goes something like this: Sit down, buckle up. Insert key in ignition, turn to on and hold down the starter button. The 6.0 litre 495kw V12 engine screams into life, filling the cabin with an angry roar at first, then idling softly. Select Race mode for traction control and ESC, hold in footbrake, select first gear. Fully depress accelerator, the engine now revvs at 4000rpm, pausing, waiting. Release the footbrake.

Just like that, the engine screams to the 8500rpm redline in a fury of noise and thrust. The huge Bridgestone R-GT tyres scramble for grip, howling in process. The R12 fires forward with a force that will literally take your breath away. 100kmh flashes past after roughly 3 seconds, the R12 will keep surging until it bumps into its 350kmh speed limiter.

X-Series, The ultimate in Grand Touring

Image
The long awaited final addition to the Forza performance stable and the rebirth of the legendary nameplate that founded over half a century of passion for and obsession with performance and luxury. For the first time in two decades, the X-Series, the world's oldest and most favoured Grand Tourer returns.

The X-Series is based on the platform of the much larger M-Series, and is essentially a shortened four door coupe version of the consummate luxury sedan, with a shortened wheelbase, raked rear windshield, and with only four seats instead of two.

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratio's. Petrol engines have a limit on the maximum pressure during the compression stroke, after which the fuel/air mixture detonates rather than burns. To achieve higher power outputs at the same speed, more fuel must be burnt and therefore more air is needed. To achieve this, turbochargers or superchargers are used to increase the inlet pressure. This would result in detonation of the fuel/air mixture unless the compression ratio was decreased, i.e. the volume above the piston made greater. This can be done to greater or lesser extent with massive increases in power being possible. The down side of this is that under light loading, the engine can lack power and torque. The solution is to be able to vary the inlet pressure and adjust the compression ratio to suit. This gives the best of both worlds, a small efficient engine that behaves exactly like a modern family car engine but turns into a highly tuned one on demand.

The 3.2 Litre V6 is stroked version of the 3.0 Litre ACR V6 fitted to other models in the line up and offers an impressive 270kw of power along with 500nm of torque, delivered by a wide power band thanks to its twincharged set up. Using the variable compression technology and twin-charged set up, the 3.0 Litre reaches a specific output of 80kw/Litre while still retaining superb fuel economy and the reliability that you would never associate with a sport engine.
The V6 makes use of 'twin charging' where both a supercharger and a turbocharger are used to aspirate the engine. For lower engine speeds, the supercharger (which is driven directly by the engine) is used to provide boost, however when the exhaust pressure generated is sufficient to run the turbocharger, the supercharger shuts down so as not to consume power.

The step up from the twincharged petrol engine is the Supercharged 5.4 Litre V8, a silky smooth and responsive engine which puts its impressive power figures to good use through the highly advanced and capable transmission. The V8 makes use of technology such as cylinder deactivation, where the car can run on just four cyinders to better improve economy. The ProDrive Supercharger provides a low 0.8 bar pressure boost to slightly lift performance over the standard engine on paper, but in reality it gives a much linear throttle response with peak torque being reached much lower through the rev-range.

The first choice of performance engine is the 5.5 Litre naturally aspirared V10 engine. This powerful engine was inspired by Formula 1 race cars generates a stunning 375kw and 520nm an reaches a redline of 8250rpm, which is enough to see the X10 SX propelled to 100mph in little over thirteen seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 270km/h. The 5.5 Litre V10 uses strengthened internal components made from titanium to better deal with the heat energy generated from the high engine speeds associated with performance driving.

For those who desire even more, a twin turbo version of the 5.5 Litre V10 is available in the X10 GTR. Variable Geometry Turbochargers were selected to allow the aspect ratio of the turbocharger to be altered as the conditions change. This is done because optimum aspect ratio at low engine speeds is very different from that at high engine speeds. If the aspect ratio is too large, the turbo will fail to create boost at low speeds; if the aspect ratio is too small, the turbo will choke the engine at high speeds, leading to high exhaust manifold pressures, high pumping losses, and ultimately lower power output. By altering the geometry of the turbine housing as the engine accelerates, the turbo's aspect ratio can be maintained at its optimum. Because of this, VGTs have a minimal amount of lag, have a low boost threshold, and are very efficient at higher engine speeds. In exchange for a slightly lower redline, buyers can revel in an extra 50kw and 240nm over the naturally aspirated engine without losing any of the aural qualities produced by the naturally aspirated version. Performance is in an entirely different league, with 0-100kmh times dipping down into the mid-4 second range and the quarter mile demolished in just over 12 seconds.

The final choice of performance engine is the 6.5 Litre V12 Twin Turbo, which also features in the ultra-expensive M-Series sedan. With 495kw and 10500nm, this engine takes performance into an entirely different league. 100km/h can be reached in less than 4 seconds, and the quarter mile can be surpassed in less than 12. Put your foot down at any speed, or at any other higher speed and the X12 Modena will fire forwards with such a rush, it will literally take your breath away.

Image

Transmission on base model and entry level sport cars is an Aisin CR six-speed double clutch automated manual, with full automatic shift. The Tremec double clutch gearbox shifts gears with rifle bolt precision and can slam home ratios like no other. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes just 0.02 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the X-Series' serene yet dynamic personality.

GT-R and Modena models instead benefit from a Formula 1 inspired 7 speed gearbox double clutch automated manual, likewise with a full automatic shift mode. Aside from an extra ratio, the AisinSport 7 Speed offers an extra two settings of gear change, one being comfort, one being sport plus. Comfort gear shifts take much longer, but it is near impossible to tell when the car has changed gears. Sport Plus further reduces shift time to a stunning 0.015 seconds, faster than almost everything in its class.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver.

Image

Instead of taking a more traditional approach when it came to interior design, Forza teamed up with software specialists nVidia to create an interior display like nothing else. Two LCD screens were installed in the car, one between the tachometer and the speedometer on the dash directly infront of the driver, and another much larger touch screen display mounted on the centre console. In additon, a Heads-Up-Display function was also enabled to project the cars speed and gear directly onto the windshield infront of the driver. Gauges were designed by Watchmaker Surrat, along with a centrally mounted analouge clock with sapphire backing.

The cabin is upholstered in the finest leather quality available; it takes three cows to provide enough leather to fully upholster the S-Series. Dashboard, Steering Wheel, Seats and Insert Leather all come available in an array of choices with contrast and blending stiching and piping also available. If the driver would prefer a more sportier feel, the leather can be substituted for alcantara seating with carbonfibre trim on the dashboard in place of the existing aluminium. Seats are heated to provide an extra degree of warmth to the driver on cold days and are also ventillated to prevent the seats from becoming hot and sticky on warm days. The seats themselves have memory for three different drivers and are ajustable in eight different directions. The Steering wheel comes with the required buttons to be able to control the Command function without the driver taking his hands off the wheel, information being displayed on the dashboard screen. The wheel is also heated and ventillated as are the seats. Steering wheel is ajustable in both height and reach.

To further personalize your vehicle, we have created Command. Command is a program which allows the driver to customize every aspect of their vehicle for any ever changing situation. Everything from the climate control to the suspension settings and throttle response can be changed by using the Command function. This allows you, the driver, to set up the car to reflect the conditions you are driving with considerable ease. Command is the basic control interface for all the technology in the car and controls everything from the multimedia system to the climate control and the cars suspension to providing warnings of flat tyres.

The X-Series comes standard with the ultimate in audio and entertainment. Featured is a 1500 watt 8 speaker system with no sound distortion that can play MP3/CD/WMA/AAC/MP4/DVD. The ultimate system includes a portable music player dock, a smart phone and bluetooth intergration. Also fitted is standard steering wheel mounted controls. All this is displayed on the standard fitted 10 inch Command screen.
The high end entertainment package features a 15 inch fold down overhead screen which can play bluetooth, HD and DVD movies. A built in HD tuner and sattelite is fitted allowing passengers to watch HD free-to-air TV or sattelite paid TV should they choose.

Sattelite Navigation and the processing unit comes from Aerospace Company ALC, an organization usually famed for producing fighter jets. This expertise has been put to use within Forza cars to create a system unlike any other, ahead of the pack in terms of processing speed, user interface and tacticality.
As one could expect, Calypso is more than just a satellite navigation system - indeed, it can be described more as a virtual co-driver, plus a serious in-car entertainment suite. Calypso includes 2 front-mounted, 2 rear-mounted and 4 side-mounted visual/IR cameras, and front and rear active ultrasonic scanners, scanning the surroundings.
For processing all this data, the system includes a powerful (16-pipeline 3,200 MHz RISC) computer system, which compares the 3D data from the satellites to the positional information and camera input. Calypso also functions like a personal computer, offering the user 8 TB of hard drive space for films, games, music, and anything else. With a broadband network connection, it can be used for tasks ranging from browsing and high-speed downloading to stock trading.

While all the same 5" to 16" touchscreens as in Tarvos are available, and a full voice input is integrated, an innovation in Calypso is an optional display system derived from the one installed in ALC, a company from Vault 10, fighter jets. It involves installing a high-grade cathode ray projection system into the dashboard into the roof and applying a thin film selective-band reflector to the windscreen. With a resolution of up to 2x3200x2000 in the top model, Calypso is capable of projecting color images directly on the screen. Such images can include navigational markers, warnings, and, at dark time, a night vision view of the road ahead, overlaid with the actual visible image. Of course, the passenger's part of the windscreen (and the driver's part when not in motion) can be also used for entertainment purposes

Image


Working in tandem with Command, a communications array has also been set up within the S-Series. Bluetooth integration is offered throughout the cabin of the car, allowing the driver to answer phonecalls handsfree simply by pushing a button on the steering wheel. In addition, a SIM card can be installed into the car so that the car can make phone calls itself without the driver reaching for his hand-held phone. The owner can also use the system to browse the internet when the car is not in motion.

Parktronic is a system in which the car can park itself with minimum input from the driver. The system is capable of reverse, parallel or straight in parking on any elevation and in any conditions. The parking sensors mounted along the car will attempt to find a gap large enough for the car to fit into, then, with driver approval, will drive into the parking spot. If the driver would rather park his own car, the system can be selected only to find large enough spaces or to provide information of any obstacles in the way.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed.

Forza H-Series Police Special Series II
Image

The second generation series of the Forza H-Series Police Special is a range of police vehicles unlike any other within the world. The H-Series Police Special (HPS) mixes the space, practicality and dynamic ability of the large platform of the typical Forza H-Series and combines it with the latest and greatest in police technology as well as class leading performance and emissions from a range of four engines, all four promising a different blend of performance and economy. The HPS is available in standard sedan or optional estate body styles and can seat five adults in comfort making it a perfect choice for an all purpose police car. When you team this with engines ranging from the base 3.0 Litre V6 to the rock crushing 5.2 Litre V10 Twin Turbo, you can be sure that you are buying a vehicle which can take on any situation.

Image

The V6 engine is the base engine of the range and is the engine that makes up the H6 Patrol variant. This particular V6 is a 3.0 Litre Twin Sequentially Turbocharged V6 which produces 250kw and 500nm of torque at as low as 1500rpm. This means the V6 has a wide torque band for a very creamy and responsive delivery of power and when you match this to a smart shifting seven speed gearbox, this is a welcome choice for many police buyers. Although not the fastest variant by a long shot, the V6 is a car more than capable of catching speeders or maintaining a fast pursuit against typical vehicles used by the general public with 500nm available from just 1500rpm and 250kw of power to match it.

Those nations who prefer diesel powered cars may instead look at the H6D Patrol car. The H6D uses a sequentially twin turbocharged 3.0 Litre V6 engine which produces 200kw of power and a staggering 600nm of torque, giving the H6D standout acceleration for a diesel car and the sequential arrangement of the turbochargers means that the engine is also very responsive and has a very wide band of torque. But the main advantage the diesel engine has is the saving in fuel consumption, the diesel engine consumes 20% less fuel on a standard patrol than the thirstier petroleum V6. This engine is also matched to the standard seven speed gearbox.

The next step up is the diesel V12, a 5.5 Litre twin turbo charged monster capable of producing an incredible 900 newton metres of torque from as low as 1500rpm and to hold that figure until 4000 and matching it with 300kw of power. The diesel V12 promises a fast and responsive experience without the usual premium of petrol fuel consumption and consumes much less fuel than the faster petrol V10. For nations which prefer diesel motivation, the Interceptor-D is a match for any car. This engine instead uses a double clutch seven speed gearbox for faster shifting times.

For those who desire even more, a twin turbo version of the 5.2 Litre V10 is available in the H10 GTR. In exchange for a slightly lower redline, buyers can revel in an extra 100kw and 200nm over the naturally aspirated engine without losing any of the aural qualities produced by the naturally aspirated version accounting for a grand total of 480kw and 800nm. Performance is in an entirely different league, with 0-100kmh times dipping down into the mid-4 second range and the quarter mile demolished in just over 12 seconds. This gives the Interceptor-R version of the HPS some serious shove and allows the Interceptor to accelerate after any car and catch them in a matter of seconds no matter what the speed. The Interceptor-R also includes launch control which can be set to activate as soon as the driver touches the pedal, if they are on highway patrol duties off to the side of the road. As with the diesel V12, the transmission used is a seven speed double clutch gearbox.

Transmission standard on all Patrol cars is an Aisin seven-speed automatic, with sports shifter. The Aisin was selected over at Double Clutch Gearbox on lower models due to its smoothness and cohesiveness, while still retaining fast shift speeds. When Sport Shift mode is engaged, which can be done through Command, changing gears takes 0.1 seconds. When Sport Shift mode is not engaged, the changes are softened so as to not disrupt the H-Series' serene yet dynamic personality and thus eliminate the jerky shifts at slow speeds

Transmission standard on all Pursuit cars is a seven speed double clutch gearbox manufactured by Tremec. The Tremec TCR-7 takes gearshifts to an entirely new level with shifts as quick as 0.02 seconds, literally blink-and-miss-it times. Paired with the two powerful pursuit level engines, the TCR-7 ensures that the HPS will always be able to find the right gear to channel that enourmous power to the wheels to catch whatever vehicle lies in front of them, and with shift times of one fiftieth of a second, it will find that gear faster than any other police car on the market.

Suspension makes use of several new technologies such as magnetic dampers and Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) which can be adapted to harden and soften the suspension at the touch of a button using the Command system. Ride height, Damper Bound & Rebound, Spring stiffness and the anti-roll bar can all be adjusted to provide the best possible setting for the car. Three standard settings are available (Comfort, Dynamic & Sport) along with a fourth choice which can be preset by the driver to suit their personal driving style. The Brakes of the HPS Patrol cars are ventilated discs of 380mm front and 340mm rear, giving incredible braking performance and allowing the HPS Patrol to pull up smartly at a moments notice. The Brakes on the HPS Interceptor cars are no larger, but are of a Carbon Ceramic compound meaning very little fade over their life and allowing stop after stop with no change in braking performance.

Buyers can opt for the hydrogen system which allows the car to run on hydrogen fuel instead of just petrol. The hydrogen option mounts a separate insulated hydrogen tank above the rear axle and extending into the boot of the car. This cuts boot space by approximately 200L to make room for the tank. Drivers can fill up on both Hydrogen and petrol, however must take due care to put the correct fuel in the correct tank. If a contamination occurs, both tanks have an automatic release system through Command to drain the tank. Fuel nozzles are clearly labelled. The driver can switch fuel sources by pulling over the car, switching off the engine, selecting 'ACC' on the ignition, and switching the fuel knob located beneath the igition from petrol to hydrogen. The tank will then decontaminate and change fuel lines in the process of seven seconds. The driver is then free to continue on their journey. Emissions from the hydrogen system can either be collected as water in a separate 50L tank adjacent to the hydrogen tank in the boot, or heat the water vapour to steam and exhaust normally.

Image

The HPS also offers a hybrid electric system on all powerplants. This mounts an 80kw generator in the lower engine bay and two powerful lithium-ion battery packs under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) whenever the car brakes or turns a corner. When the system is enabled, the combustion engine shuts down and turns on only as needed, usually when the car accelerates. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the LED screen mounted centrally in the interior. This option greatly reduces fuel economy and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the HPS's green credentials.

The HPS is a large car easily capable of seating five adults in its interior. From the outset, the HPS was designed as nothing less than a large family car that offered interior space for a large family. Another benefit of a large interior, aside from passenger comfort, is the load carrying ability that the HPS offers. The sedan version of the HPS offers a large 570 litre boot with a 60/40 split folding rear seat which further increases the boot capacity to an enourmous 1640 litres. Theoretically, this is more than enough to carry anything from flak jackets and additional weaponry to mobile speed cameras and barricades. The wagon version of the HPS offeres a further increased space of 780 litres and when the rear seats are folded flat, the space increases to 1860. The H-Series also features items such as luggage belts, collapsible cargo nets and dividing cross bars to keep objects in the boot from rolling around in the cargo compartment. At the centre of the console, is a large 9" touchscreen monitor which can be used to access the Command function.

The front and rear windshields and side windows are all slightly tinted to offer protection from the sun in some of the more harsh climates around the globe. Dashboards and interior plastics have been glazed and protected to help increase durability and reduce wear and tear. Leather seating in the cabin is an option which makes the car easier to keep clean. Extensive waterproofing has been done along the bottom of the chassis and cabin to prevent water from seeping into the cabin during heavy or torrential rains. This is a must have feature for tropical areas or for areas prone to flash-flooding. The HPS can 'wade' through waters up to 60 cm high.


Image

Because some police work means being in the line of fire, the HPS fits 10mm layers of Kevlar around the cabin to prevent penetration from small arms fire. 10mm sheets of Kevlar are planted around the doors and roof of the vehicle to offer the occupants a degree of protection from large calibre weapons and complete protection from small arms fired from over fifteen metres away. Windows are also bullet resistant and shatter resistant as well as the fuel tank which is puncture resistant. Tyres are armoured run-flats which have a punctured life of 100km at no more than 80km/h before they must be replaced.

The Interceptor also features Adaptive Command, which once its turned on, makes ajustments to the set up of the car everytime the conditions change. Adaptive Command controls all electronic counter-measures, such as Traction Control and the Electronic Stability Program, the suspension of the car, eg. ride height, rebound, spring rate, and controls the throttle response. Adaptive Command will ajust these as it sees fit to make sure the car is as fast as it possibly can be, in the wet or dry, gravel or tarmac. At speeds in excess of 100km/h, every slight mistake can be life threatening. Adaptive Command minimizes the chance of a mistake happening and lets the driver stay focused on the pursuit, rather than messing around with the car.

Another great feauture is the Night Vision camera fitted to the bonnet of the car, which displays its image into the 5" centre screen of the dashboard. This NVS system can allows the driver to see things that traditional lights would have missed, preventing any accidents and making it far easier to spot suspects, victims or just the general public. The NVS system made by nVidia is long lasting and is proven to be one of the most effective NVS systems available anywhere in the world. When the vehicle is parked, officers can use the NVS to zoom and focus on a particular location, aiding in search factors.

Image

The night vision system works in tandem with the normal lighting. It is possible to drive off just the NVS, but this is not reccomended unless in certain circumstances.

Image

The Heads Up Display of the Interceptor is broadcast onto the LCD screen on the windscreen. This can be ajusted by drivers to put it in a more convenient location. The HUD displays Speed, engine rpms, gear and when in use, the sattelite navigation system. This allows the driver to stay 100% focused on the road ahead, and when at high speeds, this is absolutely necessary.

The centre LCD screen can not only be used to access the Command Function but can also double as a computer which the officer not driving can use to investigate cars around him, access information relative to roads or even surf the internet. This gives another way in which the patrol officers can receive information from higher powers.

Clearskies is a system in which the car will act to keep visability at its peak. Clearskies is an automatic system which controls the windshield wipers and defogging system to keep any obstructions to visability from taking effect. If the Clearskies system detects vapour on the inside of the windshield, it will use its own integrated defogging system to clear the vapour without effecting the temperature inside the car. At the same time, the windshield wipers will automatically ajust the period and speed of rotation to keep the winshield free of rain, mud and other obstructions.

The Highway Patrol Tool is a standard fitted device designed to simplify the duties of the highway patrol officer by presenting all information on the road and cars in front of him on the small LCD screen on the instrument panel, directly between the speedometer and the tachometer. When this tool is switched off, the screen displays the odometer and trip computer. Information about the cars is gathered by a small camera mounted on the front bumper which senses the registration plates of cars and displays their basic information onto the screen
The screen is displayed below
Image
This indicated the driver is behind the wheel of car number 505 and is driving on the Ballan Highway. From the information given by the tool, the Ballan Highway has three lanes that travel in the direction of the police car and an unknown number of lanes travelling in the opposing direction. The tool shows the right lane does not exist. For the three lanes that do exist, only two of the lanes have cars in them which their information is displayed below the lane indicator. The speed, distance between HPS and vehicle, vehicle type and crucially the licence plate number are displayed. The driver of the VLT is speeding as the speed indicator is red and reveals his speed is 154km/h; 14km/h above the limit which is mentioned at the top of the screen. Below the vehicle information is the Scan Now button, which the driver can press to display the information of the vehicle and its registered driver(s) on the central LCD screen on the centre console.

Smartlight is the system which controls exterior and interior lighting for the car. Smartlight controls where the headlamps point, how long they remain on for and the subsequent beam they give. When the car is in motion, Smartlight will angle the inner beam of each headlamp (there are two beams per head lamp) to follow the road ahead, allowing the driver to see where he is going as opposed to where he was going. When the car is stopped, Smartlight can keep the lights on for up to two minutes before turning off the lights which can provide light for the driver, something they may need to find their key to get inside the house. At the same time, Smartlight prevents the lights from being turned on for periods of over ten minutes, after which a serious strain on the battery will be placed. SmartLight+ which is featured on the HPS also includes different settings for sirens and flashing police lights which can be changed with ease by steering wheel mounted buttons, thus meaning the driver does not have to take their hands off the wheel.

The Smartlight+ package can also display messages on the LED screen between the panels of flashing lights mounted on the roof. While normally it may say "Police", it can be programmed to display a range of messages such as standard "Stop", "Pull Over", "Accident Ahead" as well as any other messages which can be typed in via the touch Command screen.

Forza Alternate Fuels

In a world with an ever-changing environment, where resourses are plentiful one day and scarce the next, Forza has as such become accustomed to thinking that one day fossil fuels will not be the fuel of choice to power the next generation of personal vehicles. To this end, Forza has taken a leading hand in developing a vast range of alternate fuel-powered powerplants which are able to be fitted to the Forza range at special request.

Due to the nature and the somewhat limited global demand of alternate fuel vehicles, Forza offers its alternate fuel technology as an optional import to many nations around the world.




Forza was one of the first Automotive companies world wide to offer a hydrogen combustion system for sale and have since become closely associated with hydrogen as an alternate fuel source. Although Forza no longer fits cars with standard hydrogen systems, the option remains. Hydrogen is a fuel source which leaves no emissions, no impact on the environment and is a source of fuel which will almost certainly never be depleted.

Buyers can opt for the hydrogen system, however this will significantly increase the price over the standard RRP. The hydrogen option mounts a separate insulated hydrogen tank above the rear axle and extending into the boot of the car. This cuts boot space by approximately 200L to make room for the tank. Drivers can fill up on both Hydrogen and petrol, however must take due care to put the correct fuel in the correct tank. If a contamination occurs, both tanks have an automatic release function to drain the tank accesible from Command. Fuel nozzles are clearly labelled. The driver can switch fuel sources by pulling over the car, switching off the engine, selecting 'ACC' on the ignition, and switching the fuel knob located beneath the igition from petrol to hydrogen. The tank will then decontaminate and change fuel lines in the process of seven seconds. The driver is then free to continue on their journey. Emissions from the hydrogen system can either be collected as water in a separate 50L tank adjacent to the hydrogen tank in the boot, or heat the water vapour to steam and exhaust normally.

A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts chemical energy from a fuel into electric energy. Electricity is generated from the reaction between a fuel supply and an oxidizing agent. The reactants flow into the cell, and the reaction products flow out of it, while the electrolyte remains within it. Fuel cells can operate continuously as long as the necessary reactant and oxidant flows are maintained. A fuel cell system running on hydrogen can be compact and lightweight, and have no major moving parts. Because fuel cells have no moving parts and do not involve combustion, in ideal conditions they can achieve up to 99.9999% reliability. This equates to around one minute of down time in a two year period.

The principle behind a fuel cell is simple chemistry. They are made up of three segments which are sandwiched together: the anode, the electrolyte, and the cathode. Two chemical reactions occur at the interfaces of the three different segments. The net result of the two reactions is that fuel is consumed, water is created, and an electric current is created, which can be used to power electrical devices, normally referred to as the load.

At the anode a catalyst oxidizes the fuel, in this case hydrogen, turning the fuel into a positively charged ion and a negatively charged electron. The electrolyte is a substance specifically designed so ions can pass through it, but the electrons cannot. The freed electrons travel through a wire creating the electric current. The ions travel through the electrolyte to the cathode. Once reaching the cathode, the ions are reunited with the electrons and the two react with a third chemical, usually oxygen, to create water.

The type of fuel cell used by Forza is a Proton exchange membrane fuel cells, also known as polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells (PEMFC). Their distinguishing features include lower temperature/pressure ranges (50 to 100 °C) and a special polymer electrolyte membrane. This, and their relative compactness, makes them very well suited to Automotive applications and are able to attain outputs in excess of 300kw.

Image

HybriDrive refer's to Forza's patented Combustion-Electric hybrid system. Although, usually, this involves a petrol or diesel engine, HybriDrive is also able to be teamed with Ethanol or BioDiesel engines.

The HybriDrive offers a hybrid electric system, teamed with a standard Forza engine. This mounts an 80kw generator in the engine bay and a powerful lithium-ion battery pack under the car floor, either side of the driveshaft. Energy for the battery pack is collected while the engine is running, or through a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) when the car brakes or turns a corner. The petrol engine shuts down and turns on only as needed. Battery life, and information on the electric system is displayed on the small LED screen fitted standard to the interior. This greatly reduces fuel usage and slightly improves performance, while enhancing the car's green credentials. The HybriDrive is suited to markets with extreme emissions control.

HybriDrive is already offered as a stand-alone model on some Forzas, including the E-Series and the C-Series, however is also available across the range by special request from an import market.


Forza Engine Management Technology

ACR Technology is the name given to Variable Compression Ratio technology that has been applied to Forza's small displacement engines. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratios. With petroleum engines, the maximum fuel pressure during the compression stroke is limited, any value higher than the limit causes the fuel/air mixture to detonate rather than burn.
Yet, to attain greater power at the same engine speed, a greater volume of fuel must be burnt thus in turn needing more air. In order to meet this demand, forced induction is used in the form of Forza's twincharging system. To avoid detonation of the fuel/air mixture the compression ratio must be decreased, this is done by increasing the volume in the cylinder, in this case by the cylinder head being compressed and allowing the volume in the cylinder to increase. The cylinder head can be altered by a hydraulic system connected to the crank shaft which responds according to the load on the engine. In order to best meet the driving conditions being experienced, the inlet pressure and compression ratio is constantly adjusted.


Cylinder deactivation is used to reduce the fuel consumption and emissions of an internal combustion engine during light load operation. In typical light load driving the driver uses only around a quarter to a third of an engine’s maximum power. In these conditions, the throttle valve is nearly closed and the engine needs to work hard to draw air for combustion. This causes an inefficiency known as pumping loss. Some large capacity engines need to be throttled so much at light load that the cylinder pressure at the zenith of the cylinder is approximately half that of a small engine half the size. Low cylinder pressure means low fuel efficiency and fuel consumption begins to sky rocket.

The use of cylinder deactivation at light load means there are fewer cylinders drawing air from the intake manifold which works to increase its fluid (air) pressure. Operation without variable displacement is wasteful because fuel is continuously pumped into each cylinder and combusted even though maximum performance is not required. By shutting down half of an engine's cylinders the amount of fuel being consumed is much less. Between reducing the pumping losses which increases pressure in each operating cylinder and decreasing the amount of fuel being pumped into the cylinders. Fuel consumption for large capacity Forza engines can be reduced by 20 to 35 percent in highway conditions.

Cylinder deactivation is done by keeping the intake and exhaust valves closed for a particular cylinder once the cylinder is filled with fuel and oxygen. By keeping the intake and exhaust valves closed, it creates a spring effect in the combustion chamber – the trapped gases are compressed during the piston’s upstroke and push down on the piston during its downstroke. The compression and decompression of the trapped exhaust gases have an equalising effect; overall, there is virtually no extra load on the engine so the engine does not need to work harder.

In this latest generation of cylinder deactivation systems, the engine management system is also used to cut fuel delivery to the disabled cylinders using Forza's Variable ValveTechnology (VVT). The transition between normal engine operation and cylinder deactivation is also smoothed using changes in ignition timing, cam timing and throttle position thanks to electronic throttle control and VVT.

FMV Type 3 Armoured Mobility Vehicle

Image

Crew: 2-6
Drivetrain: Front engine, Rear Wheel Drive/All Wheel Drive

Transmission: Seven Speed Double Clutch Automated Manual
Suspension: Front & Rear, MacPherson Struts, Double A-Arms, Anti Roll Bar
Weights: 7500kg,
Dimensions L/W/H: 5550/1950/2050

Max onroad speed: 150 km/h
Max offroad speed: 85 km/h

Price: $140,000

The F500 is a fast, lightweight armoured vehicle, designed to protect troops against elements of assymetrical warfare including IED's and small arms fire, while still possessing the mobility required to reach into the toughest locations under heavy fire.

The engine is an enourmous 6.2 Litre Flat 6 diesel, twincharged, with a turbocharger (1.1 bar) feeding each bank of cylinders and fitted with Forza's ACR technology. ACR stands for Adaptable Compression Ratio and literally means the engine can adjust the compression ratio of the engine while the engine is running. Changing the compression ratio of the engine can benefit fuel economy as heavy strains on the engine work best with low compression ratios while minimal strains are most effective with high compression ratios. With petroleum engines, the maximum fuel pressure during the compression stroke is limited, any value higher than the limit causes the fuel/air mixture to detonate rather than burn.
Yet, to attain greater power at the same engine speed, a greater volume of fuel must be burnt thus in turn needing more air. In order to meet this demand, forced induction is used in the form of Forza's twincharging system. To avoid detonation of the fuel/air mixture the compression ratio must be decreased, this is done by increasing the volume in the cylinder, in this case by the cylinder head being compressed and allowing the volume in the cylinder to increase. The cylinder head can be altered by a hydraulic system connected to the crank shaft which responds according to the load on the engine. In order to best meet the driving conditions being experienced, the inlet pressure and compression ratio is constantly adjusted.

The pistons are arranged in a boxer layout. A flat layout is near identical in appearence and theory to a boxer engine; there is still a 180 degree angle between the two seperate banks of pistons, however a boxer engine mounts two opposing pistons on two different crank pins as opposed to a flat engine which mounts two pistons on the same crank pin. Thus, a flat layout is best described as a 180 degree V engine and not a true boxer engine. Boxer engines are reknown for having superb balance and are unique in that a boxer engine does not require counter balances at all on the crank shaft as the engine has superb natural balance. This is further enhanced by the use of twelve cylinders. Boxers are so named because when one looks at the engine from down the crankshaft, the two banks of cylinders will appear to be boxing one another.

The induction system is a variant of Forza's TwinCharger system; a single Roots-type Superchager is used to aspirate the engine at low RPM's with two Turbochargers, one for each bank of cylinders, aspirating the engine further down the rev-range. TwinCharging systems have a number of advantages over other forms of forced induction. Unlike Turbocharged engines, Twincharged engines do not experience turbo-lag, where the turbochargers are ineffective because they are not at operating speeds. Unlike supercharged engines, Twincharged engines can decouple the supercharger from the engine so that it won't drain power to operate while still maintaining boost from the turbochargers. The two forms of forced induction do not operate in parallel in a bid to avoid the extremely high manifold temperatures which would be produced by the supercharger blowing into the turbocharger. As such, the supercharger is decoupled as soon as the turbocharger activates.

The engine was positioned relatively low inside the engine bay of the vehicle to improve the centre of gravity of the Type 3 which allows the FMV to have greater lateral body movement before the vehicle begins to roll. As such, the Type 3 is able to turn even the tightest of corners at relatively high speeds. The engine block itself is made from aluminium alloy, comprised of 11% silicon, 4% manganese and 0.5% magnesium. This Al-Alloy has a high thermal conductivity and hence is able to dissipate heat quicker than cast iron. Also, it leads more thermal efficiency, cooler running engines and are lighter thereby improving the overall vehicle’s operative characteristics.

The enourmous outputs are channeled through a seven speed dual clutch gearbox and two differentials to all four wheels. The DCT has seven forward gears and one reverse gear in a double clutch system. In Double Clutch Transmissions the two clutches are arranged concentrically with the larger outer clutch drives the odd numbered gears (1,3,5,7) whilst the smaller inner clutch drives the even numbered gears (2,4,6). Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque distribution to the driveshaft, by applying the engine's torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Since alternate gear ratios can pre-select an odd gear on one gear shaft whilst the vehicle is being driven in an even gear. This means the Double Clutch Gearbox can change gears much faster than any single clutch transmission and much more smoothly.

The F500 has both a high and low range capability and the driver can select between rear or all wheel drive. This is due to the fact that driving at highway speeds on an ashphalt surface with the front differential locked in can cause serious damage to the vehicle, therefore the vehicle must be driven in low range, rear wheel drive mode. The gearbox has been designed to cope with the high outputs which the engine provides, and has an estimated lifetime of 500,000kms. Using plates of Aermet 100 Steel and Kevlar, it has also been well protected to avoid any damage which could render it useless. A manual 'sport' style mode has also been provided, with the driver changing gears via the automatic gear lever. This is so the driver can select a gear which he feels he needs, or make the FMV hold the ratio instead of shifting up.

Features such as traction control, crawl control, hill descent control and terrain control have also been provided, all in easy reach of the driver. This allows the driver to change how the vehicle responds to different terrains and situations by altering the Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control and Brake Balance. Unlike a road vehicle, the driver has complete control over these driver aids and can even switch them off entirely should the situation arise.

The cabin has space to seat a driver, co-driver and up to 8 passengers. There are four gunner positions to the sides and rear of the cabin, as well as the remote controlled turret mounted on top of the cabin. The turret is controlled by the co-driver when it is in use.

The frame of the Type 3 is constructed of several tubes of Duralumin 2014. Duralumin is a Copper-Aluminium alloy which is very light yet very strong, hence it's use in the FMV Type 3. Duralumin 2014 in this case is comprised of roughly 93.5% Aluminium, 4.4% Copper, 1.5% Magnesium and 0.6% Manganese. Because the presence of copper makes the frame susceptible to corrosion, a very thin sheeting of Al-Li covers the framework once the components are welded together. To further keep weight down, the tubular design of the FMV's frame involves welding several tubes of Duralumin together, and then hydroforming the components to get the required shape. Hydroforming involves placing a section of metal between two casts and pumping water at very high pressure though the tube in order to deform it into the shape of the casts.

Armour is comprised of panels made from Aermet 100 steel which completely cover the frame of the vehicle. The panels vary in thickness from 25 millimetres around the doors, roof and engine bay to 10mm for the front and rear panels and rear four quarter panels. Aermet 100 is an aviation grade steel reknown for it's high compressive strength and resistance to fracture which made it an obvious choice for use on the Type 3. Because AerMet is not corrosion resistant due to the presence of Copper, the panels of Aermet are shielded behind a layer of lightweigh Aluminium-Lithium which acts as a protectant from the elements.

Kevlar plates and shields are installed between the plates of Aermet 100 and Al-Li also around the doors, roof and engine bay. This creates a composite armour effect and the Kevlar greatly re-inforces the existing armour plating and further reduces the chance of penetration by enemy fire.

The fuel tank and essential driveline components are also covered by a layer of Aermet 100 and Kevlar, however any mechanism which contains fuid, such as the gearbox and the fuel tank, are protected by self-sealing rubber linings which quickly 'repair' themselves before too much of the fluid they contain has escaped. The fuel tank in particular is partitioned, divided in to sections, so that no matter what angle the FMV is travelling at and no matter how full the tank is, fuel can always be pumped into the engine. Ammunition storages which are inset into the floor of the FMV
are kept in anti-spalling compartments, also with kevlar lining.

The bottom hull of the Type 3 is completely sealed over with a single large plate of Aermet 100 steel. The hull is V shaped with an angle of 150 degrees in order to deflect any blast under the vehicle, such as a mine or an improvised explosive device, off to the side of the vehicle where it won't cause harm. Despite the pronounced V of the hull, there is still a ground clearence of 55cm so as not to impede the mobility of the FMV Type 3.

The F500 is designed to cope with small arms fire and improvised explosive devices, nothing larger.

The primary armament consists of a remote weapons station, operating a 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun, and is dubbed the RMT (Remote Machine Turret). The RM is composed of two parts: the mount which is fixed to the exterior of the vehicle and the control group. The mount is capable of 360 degree azimuth rotation and -20 to +60 degree elevation. The sensor unit includes a daylight video camera, a thermal imager for night operations and an eye-safe laser rangefinder. It is also furnished with a fully integrated fire control system that provides ballistic correction.

The CROWS control group mounts inside the vehicle, in front of the co-driver. It includes a display, switches and joystick to provide full remote control of the weapon system. This enables the fighting crew to operate from inside armored combat vehicles, while still carrying out patrols, acquiring targets, and firing a variety of weapons more efficiently.

The 12.7mm HMG a short recoil operated weapon that fires a 12.7x99mm round. It has a rate of fire of approximately 700RPM and an effective range of 2km. It is belt fed, with rounds being stored in a 200 round case mounted under the RMT. A crew member in the rear seat can change the case without putting their life in danger, by simply reaching up into the turret.

We would like to form a government organized race series using a variety of makes of cars, and we would very much like Vitaphone to be a part of it. The races will be roughy 500kms long each, the series should go for 18 races nation wide on some purpose built race tracks, others on street circuits. The format of the races will be GT racing style.

We plan to use 3 different brands in our races, and we would very much like your company to be a part.

We are thrilled to have been selected by your government. We suggest using the R12 GT1 in your series because of its speed and race-readiness, however we will be able to select other models from our catalouge if you would prefer something different. We can provide cars, parts, mantinence teams, course cars, anything you require. Please provide us with more details.

And also just out of curiousity, who are the other manufactures going to be?

Communism is standing in line for eight hours to get a moldy piece of bread.

Capitalism is working for eight hours, going to the store when you get off, buying a loaf of bread, going home and finding that it is moldy. Thinking for twenty minutes if it'll be okay if you just scrape off the mold, deciding that it won't. Then thinking for another twenty minutes if it's worth putting your shoes back on to go back to the store, deciding that it isn't and then just eating the bread anyway.
