AutoMotions

A significant contribution to the increased attractiveness of the Yaris is made by the further developed full hybrid drive, which contributes to a more active and exciting driving experience. In addition to the proven drive with 116 hp, Toyota also offers the 1.5-liter hybrid in a second performance variant with 130 hp.

Together with the revised software of the control unit (PCU), the total output of the 1.5-liter system increases by twelve percent from 85 kW/116 hp to 96 kW/130 hp. The torque also increases significantly across the entire speed range: by 30 percent from 141 Nm to 185 Nm. This leads to noticeably faster acceleration. Not only was the time for the sprint from zero to 100 km/h reduced by half a second to 9.2 seconds, the acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h also improved by almost half a second to 7.5 seconds This particularly pays off when overtaking.

The 116 hp version boasts even lower CO2 emissions of 87 to 91 g/km.

AutoMotions

NEW LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA – available in Italy in 1906 certified and numbered units as a tribute to the year Lancia was founded – cements the bond between two outstanding brands in their respective sectors: automotive and interior design. It represents the next steps in a journey that began with the interiors of the Lancia Pu+Ra HPE concept car: the two brands are linked by shared values such as a vocation for research and innovation, respect for their past and tradition, as well as attention to environmental issues. Combining tradition and innovation in line with the brand’s pure and radical design language, New LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA is the first car inspired by the world of Italian furnishings. It epitomizes design, comfort, and onboard well-being. The model reflects the utmost attention to every stylistic detail, from the selection of the materials to the choice of colors: blue is used as the iconic hue of Lancia tradition, appearing both inside the car and out. A soft blue velvet in 100% recycled yarn envelops the seats with “cannelloni” pattern and double stitching, with the same color echoed in the accents on the door panels and dashboard creating an elegant and coordinated interior space. Lancia blue also features in the model's unique, elegant, and contemporary bodywork: it blends in with the black of the alloy wheels and their dark dressing, resulting in a refined and uniform visual impact, with no chrome plating. Another of the greatest hallmarks of the New LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA is the Cassina multifunctional “tavolino”, a new design element made of bio-based plastic that emphasizes the brand’s manufacturing experience. It is the first “tavolino” seen inside a car, used by Lancia to create a welcoming and hospitable space in line with its historical values. The passenger compartment therefore becomes an authentic ‘living room,’ to guarantee the comfort typical of Italian homes: a harmonious and elegant space.

Porsche has given the Taycan a particularly extensive update. The new versions have more power, more range, accelerate quicker and charge faster with greater stability. Style Porsche has also sharpened the design and more strongly differentiated the Turbo models. All Taycan versions feature an even more extensive standard equipment list and come with the latest generation of the Porsche Driver Experience with an improved display and control concept. All three body variants will feature the numerous modifications from the date of launch – the Taycan sports sedan, the versatile Taycan Cross Turismo, which is available with an off-road package, and the sporting-yet-practical Taycan Sport Turismo. In each case, four powertrain options are available, with rear- and all-wheel drive variants. The revised versions will arrive at Porsche Centres from the spring of 2024. All updated models accelerate much faster than their predecessors. Two examples from both ends of the portfolio: as sports sedans, the Taycan and Taycan Turbo S reach the 100 km/h mark from a standstill in just 4.8 and 2.4 seconds respectively. This makes them 0.6 and 0.4 seconds faster than their predecessors. With the new push-to-pass function in the Sport Chrono package, a boost of up to 70 kW, depending on the model, can be called upon for 10 seconds at the touch of a button. The increased acceleration rates are generally the result of higher system output. For example, the base Taycan delivers 60 kW more than before. In the Taycan Turbo S, it’s an additional 140 kW with Launch Control. This increases the system output of the top model to 700 kW/952 PS.

2024 Toyota Yaris DPL Premiere Edition Design Preview

AutoMotions

A significant contribution to the increased attractiveness of the Yaris is made by the further developed full hybrid drive, which contributes to a more active and exciting driving experience. In addition to the proven drive with 116 hp, Toyota also offers the 1.5-liter hybrid in a second performance variant with 130 hp. This is due to the use of the new transaxle transmission, which comes from Toyota's current fifth hybrid generation. In addition, a larger and more powerful electric motor generator is used. Together with the revised software of the control unit (PCU), the total output of the 1.5-liter system increases by twelve percent from 85 kW/116 hp to 96 kW/130 hp. The torque also increases significantly across the entire speed range: by 30 percent from 141 Nm to 185 Nm. This leads to noticeably faster acceleration. Not only was the time for the sprint from zero to 100 km/h reduced by half a second to 9.2 seconds, the acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h also improved by almost half a second to 7.5 seconds This particularly pays off when overtaking. At the same time, CO2 emissions have only increased slightly; The Yaris remains best in class as a 130 hp hybrid with 95 to 96 g/km. The 116 hp version boasts even lower CO2 emissions of 87 to 91 g/km.

AutoMotions

A successful record run by Mercedes-AMG at the prestigious Repco Bathurst 12 Hour. With a special version of the Mercedes-AMG GT3, the performance and sports car brand wrote another piece of motorsport history in Australia on Saturday. Mercedes-AMG Performance Driver Jules Gounon (AND) took up the challenge behind the wheel of the about 650 hp strong racing car at Mount Panorama Circuit. The three-time Bathurst winner covered the 6.213 kilometres at an average speed of 191.82 kph. With a time of 1m 56.605s, he posted the fastest lap time ever set with a GT car at the circuit. The reigning Intercontinental GT Challenge champion took to the track in the run-up to the legendary endurance race in the Australian state of New South Wales. In his record attempt, the 29-year-old beat the previous best time at the iconic circuit by 2.074 seconds and illustrated the impressive potential of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. The 6.2-litre V8 engine, aimed at maximum performance without an air restrictor, combined with the drag reduction system (DRS) derived from Formula 1, reached a top speed of 308.71 kph. This was achieved on the 1.916 kilometres long Conrod Straight. In addition to the carbon brake system, the optimised aerodynamics package with revised front apron, splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser proved its effect in the middle sector, characterised by fast corners. The operational team initially sent out the modified Mercedes-AMG GT3 onto the race track for a shakedown on Friday to gather experience and validate the setup. During this first assessment of the car, the record at Mount Panorama Circuit was already broken. In a second session, Jules Gounon broke the record once more. On Saturday morning at 9:20 a.m. local time, the team took advantage of the ideal conditions with an air temperature of 21 degrees Celsius and an asphalt temperature of 30 degrees Celsius to set the new record time of 1m 56.605s minutes during the final run.

BRABUS ROCKET 1000 - The first BRABUS supercar with 1,000 horsepower and a massive peak torque of 1,820 Nm

AutoMotions

BRABUS supercars have been part of the absolute elite of high-performance automobiles for more than four decades. With the new BRABUS ROCKET 1000 “1 of 25”, the Bottrop-based vehicle manufacturer accredited with the German Federal Motor Transport Authority continues this tradition with its first supercar that produces 1,000 horsepower. The basis is provided by the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE four-door coupe. As the name of this supercar limited to just 25 vehicles worldwide indicates, the BRABUS ROCKET 1000 “1 of 25” produces a system output of 736 kW / 1,000 hp. Even more massive is the increase in peak torque from 1,470 Nm to 1,820 Nm (1,084 to 1,342 lb-ft). This value is reduced to 1,620 Nm (1,195 lb-ft) in the car to protect the driveline. The hybrid drive of this exclusive automobile with 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive consists of an internal combustion engine, the 4.5-liter BRABUS ROCKET 1000 V8 Biturbo increased-displacement engine, which produces an impressive 157 horsepower more than the production engine rated at 470 kW / 639 hp, and an electric motor that generates 150 kW / 204 hp. The performance on the road speaks for itself: The sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes a mere 2.7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) just 23.7 seconds. The top speed of the new BRABUS supercar is electronically limited to 316 km/h (196 mph). The car’s outstanding performance is accompanied by spectacular looks and highly efficient aerodynamics. The BRABUS ROCKET 1000 “1 of 25” widebody version ensures the hallmark BRABUS “1-Second-Wow” effect and has a host of elements made from exposed carbon with a high-gloss clear coat finish. Under the carbon fenders are the newly developed king-sized BRABUS Monoblock P hi-tech forged wheels of size 10.5Jx21 at the front and size 12Jx22 on the rear axle. The high-performance tires up to size 335/25 ZR 22 at the rear are supplied by technology partner Continental.

The all-new Porsche Macan Technical specifications

AutoMotions

Porsche has given the Taycan a particularly extensive update. The new versions have more power, more range, accelerate quicker and charge faster with greater stability. Style Porsche has also sharpened the design and more strongly differentiated the Turbo models. All Taycan versions feature an even more extensive standard equipment list and come with the latest generation of the Porsche Driver Experience with an improved display and control concept. All three body variants will feature the numerous modifications from the date of launch – the Taycan sports sedan, the versatile Taycan Cross Turismo, which is available with an off-road package, and the sporting-yet-practical Taycan Sport Turismo. In each case, four powertrain options are available, with rear- and all-wheel drive variants. The revised versions will arrive at Porsche Centres from the spring of 2024. All updated models accelerate much faster than their predecessors. Two examples from both ends of the portfolio: as sports sedans, the Taycan and Taycan Turbo S reach the 100 km/h mark from a standstill in just 4.8 and 2.4 seconds respectively. This makes them 0.6 and 0.4 seconds faster than their predecessors. With the new push-to-pass function in the Sport Chrono package, a boost of up to 70 kW, depending on the model, can be called upon for 10 seconds at the touch of a button. The increased acceleration rates are generally the result of higher system output. For example, the base Taycan delivers 60 kW more than before. In the Taycan Turbo S, it’s an additional 140 kW with Launch Control. This increases the system output of the top model to 700 kW/952 PS.

New Lancia Ypsilon Edizione Limitata Cassina Design Preview in Studio

AutoMotions

NEW LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA – available in Italy in 1906 certified and numbered units as a tribute to the year Lancia was founded – cements the bond between two outstanding brands in their respective sectors: automotive and interior design. It represents the next steps in a journey that began with the interiors of the Lancia Pu+Ra HPE concept car: the two brands are linked by shared values such as a vocation for research and innovation, respect for their past and tradition, as well as attention to environmental issues. Combining tradition and innovation in line with the brand’s pure and radical design language, New LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA is the first car inspired by the world of Italian furnishings. It epitomizes design, comfort, and onboard well-being. The model reflects the utmost attention to every stylistic detail, from the selection of the materials to the choice of colors: blue is used as the iconic hue of Lancia tradition, appearing both inside the car and out. A soft blue velvet in 100% recycled yarn envelops the seats with “cannelloni” pattern and double stitching, with the same color echoed in the accents on the door panels and dashboard creating an elegant and coordinated interior space. Lancia blue also features in the model's unique, elegant, and contemporary bodywork: it blends in with the black of the alloy wheels and their dark dressing, resulting in a refined and uniform visual impact, with no chrome plating. Another of the greatest hallmarks of the New LANCIA YPSILON EDIZIONE LIMITATA CASSINA is the Cassina multifunctional “tavolino”, a new design element made of bio-based plastic that emphasizes the brand’s manufacturing experience. It is the first “tavolino” seen inside a car, used by Lancia to create a welcoming and hospitable space in line with its historical values. The passenger compartment therefore becomes an authentic ‘living room,’ to guarantee the comfort typical of Italian homes: a harmonious and elegant space.

Compared to the one offered on the previous Juke, the new one is slightly paler, giving a more modern and impactful look. When specified in the new N-Sport trim, the new yellow's impact is heightened by the contrast of the yellow with the black roof, wheels door mirrors, wheel arch inserts, grille and A- and B-pillars. The overall effect elevates the Juke's natural visual impact, with an added splash of swagger and attitude.
