The Kia EV6 GT will make its dynamic debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed (23-26 June). The all-electric high-performance crossover will be taking on the Festival’s famous hillclimb several times throughout the weekend, demonstrating its segment-defining performance in public for the very first time. The EV6 GT combines exhilarating performance, first-class long-distance travel capabilities, ultra-fast charging tech, and an impressive real-world driving range for effortless cross-country touring. It is also Kia’s most powerful production car to date. Based on Kia’s advanced Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), its all-electric dual-motor powertrain delivers 577 bhp (585 PS) and 740 Nm torque. Perfect for Goodwood’s famous hillclimb, these credentials enable the EV6 GT to accelerate from 0-to-62mph in just 3.5 seconds. It boasts a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h). The car also features a GT button on the steering, activating its ‘GT' mode. This automatically optimises the vehicle’s e-motors, braking, steering, suspension, e-LSD and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems for their most dynamic settings for a more engaging drive. Drivers can also tailor the car’s ride, handling and performance characteristics to suit their individual preferences by selecting the 'My Drive’ mode.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series - Orange as an exclusive contrast color
"The proximity to the AMG GT3 and AMG GT4 racing cars is visually and technically stronger than ever before. This already begins with the new, significantly larger cooling air intake, which comes directly from the AMG GT3 racing car. The radiator grille bears vertical struts in dark chrome. Because the wheel arch radiators now also have direct airflow via the central inlet, the two additional external air inlets in the front apron have been eliminated. Here, sickle-shaped flics optimize the air flow, which not only increases downforce on the front axle but also improves brake cooling. The air curtains direct the airflow specifically in the direction of the wheels. Together with the flics in front of the wheels, the drag coefficient was reduced and the downforce increased. The new design language thus combines maximum cooling air efficiency at the front with lower drag and increased downforce. The interior concept emphasises the top position of the AMG GT Black Series: Exclusive nappa leather is combined with sporty DINAMICA microfibre in black and orange contrasting stitching. The instrument panel and the redesigned lightweight door panels, which are now fitted with pull-straps instead of handles, are covered with black DINAMICA microfibre. Further orange contrasting decorative seams, matt black carbon trim elements and the Night Package interior also set striking accents. The AMG bucket seats made of carbon (not available for the USA, Canada and China) combine low weight with optimum lateral support. In the USA, Canada and China, the Black Series comes with AMG performance seats as standard. The interior is also optionally available with contrasting seams in grey. "
For Marc ter Stegen, starting a good day begins with a good cup of self-made coffee. “At least I try,” he says with a smile. The FC Barcelona goalkeeper does his best to stick to his daily routines when he doesn’t have to travel to play a match: breakfast, training, spending time with his family. But on this occasion, there’s something new in his daily routine, as for the first time he drives to training in his new car, the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID.
The new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV makes a statement with its dynamic looks and sporty, elegant lines. It complements the successfully launched ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, adding an even more emotive variant to the range. The ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV also marks the debut of the brand’s first all-electric member of the sporty RS family. While the roofline gently slopes towards the rear from the B-pillar, the new coupé offers plenty of space in the rear and a boot capacity of 570 l. Just like in the ENYAQ iV, the classic trim levels for the interior have been replaced with the Design Selections. There is a choice of two battery sizes, rear- or all-wheel drive, and four power variants with outputs ranging from 132 kW to 220 kW (RS variant). The outstanding drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234 is even better than that of the ENYAQ iV and, depending on the specification, enables a range of more than 540 km in the WLTP cycle.
