Fisker Tramonto

The Fisker Tramonto is a hand-built sportscar limited to 150 pieces world wide. It uses the base architecture of the Mercedes-Benz SL, all the while retaining meaning the world class engineering and safety features. The Tramonto still utilizes the retractable hardtop which transforms the coupe to a roadster in 16 seconds. However, unlike the original, the Tramonto has a slimmer back end, a longer hood line and no visual bumpers. This new look is created using the finest materials in carbon fiber, aluminum, stainless steel and magnesium alloy. The interior of the Tramonto is hand trimmed and hand stitched using the finest quality Italian furniture leather. Each car is individually numbered from 1 to 150 on the front facia and engine compartment to ensure exclusivity. Each car is hand-built in Italy.

The Tramonto uses the hand-built AMG power plant which the customers have the choice of 8-cylinder and 12-cylinder engines. Fisker has teamed with the various tuning companies to provide various packages for their customers. The reduced weight from carbon fiber construction and increased engine output results in a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds and top speed of 202 mph for the supercharged v8 of the SL55 AMG.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
