IED presents the new concept vehicle designed in collaboration with Suzuki, to combine the two different souls of the Japanese manufacturer in a single model On the one hand, the four wheels, functionality, efficiency, practicality of compact dimensions; on the other, two wheels, synonymous with sporting spirit, high performance and emotions. For over a century, Suzuki has embodied these two opposing souls with the production of cars and motorcycles, but is it possible to combine these two worlds in one vehicle? The European Institute of Design presents Suzuki Misano, the new concept vehicle designed in collaboration with Suzuki. Result of the thesis project of the twenty-four students of the Master in Transportation Design of IED Turin, Misano is the answer to the Japanese manufacturer's question: a style model capable of intertwining the philosophy of Japanese automotive design with a design that embodies pure passion, style and fun, as in the best Italian tradition.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo - The engine
For 45 years it has been the epitome of the high-performance sports car suitable for everyday use: the Porsche 911 Turbo. Following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, the 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet are now also entering the next generation - even more powerful, even faster and even more individual. Thanks to 427 kW (580 bhp), a plus of 30 kW (40 bhp) compared to the predecessor, both model variants undercut the magic limit of 2.8 seconds (minus 0.2 s) for the sprint from zero to 100 km/h. 750 Newton meters (plus 40 Nm) of torque, now without time overboost limit, make intermediate sprints even more spontaneous and effortless. The acceleration, power and torque of the new 911 Turbo are thus on a par with the 911 Turbo S of the previous generation. Power transmission is also provided by the eight-speed PDK transmission, which has been tuned specifically for the Turbo. The top speed remains unchanged at 320 km/h. For the first time, the 911 Turbo is also available with options such as the sports or lightweight package, sports suspension and sports exhaust system. This allows customers to tailor their vehicle even better to their individual wishes.
The globally successful AMG GT 4-Door Coupé is now even more individual than ever, so strengthening its position as the perfect automotive companion for any life situation. An exclusive edition underlines the multifaceted character of the four-door sports car. In addition, there is an extended choice of wheels, upholstery, trim, exterior colours and a retuned suspension with an even wider spread between sportiness and comfort. Thanks to an extensive update last summer, the AMG GT 4-Door Coupé already has state-of-the-art technology. New features include updated driving assistance systems and, fitted as standard, the Widescreen Cockpit including the MBUX multimedia system with AMG-specific displays and functions.
