This purist and powerful 375 kW 911 GT3 with a weight of just 1,418 kilograms is delivered with a six-speed GT sports gearbox as standard. For the first time, the Touring package can also be combined with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission at no extra cost. The exterior’s most conspicuous difference is the omission of the fixed rear wing of the 911 GT3. The necessary downforce at high speeds and even more understatement are guaranteed by an automatically extending rear spoiler. Silver-coloured trim strips made of high-gloss anodised aluminium on the side windows are another distinguishing feature that underline the newcomer’s discreet appearance. The front end is painted completely in the exterior colour. The interior, with extended leather items in Black, is particularly elegant and is available exclusively for the GT3 with Touring package. The front of the dashboard and the upper side sections of the door trim panels have special surface embossing.

At the same time, Kith will be offering a 96‑piece collection of exclusively designed apparel and accessories in all its stores and online.
Astypalea is on course to become a smart, sustainable island. The first electric vehicles, including the first fully electric police car in Greece, were taken into service today in the presence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess and Deputy Foreign Minister Kostas Fragogiannis. The first public and private charging points were also inaugurated. The event marked the launch of the transition to full electrification on Astypalea. In the coming years, the island wants to switch to smart sustainable mobility and completely modernizing its energy system. Volkswagen and the Greek government signed a memorandum of understanding to this effect last November.
The progressive premium characteristics of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer are also underscored by its extensive standard equipment. It not only includes the BMW Maps navigation system, four USB-C connections and a 12-volt connection each on the center console and in the luggage compartment, intelligent 2-zone automatic air conditioning, a sports leather steering wheel and a rain sensor with automatic headlight control, but also also a significantly increased number of driver assistance systems compared to the previous model and a parking assistant with reversing camera. Newly structured equipment packages enable a particularly targeted individualization of the vehicle. High-quality interior trim strips are available, as are surfaces for the instrument panel and the front door panels in the Sensatec variant with distinctive contrasting stitching. A mirror package, ambient light, the panoramic glass roof and the Harman Kardon Sound System also contribute to increasing the premium characteristics.
