With technology derived directly from Formula 1, the latest generation of the Mercedes‑AMG C 43 4MATIC sets new standards for innovative drive solutions both as a Saloon and as an Estate. Following its premiere in the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, the AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, the world's first series-production unit to feature an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, is now also being used in the C-Class. The new form of turbocharging guarantees particularly spontaneous response across the entire rev range and thus offers an even more dynamic driving experience. The turbocharger is operated via the 48-volt electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter-generator (RSG). In the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC the unit produces 300 kW (408 hp) and, in certain driving situations, is able to call upon a brief additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp) from the RSG. The standard rear-axle steering, the AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet start-off clutch and the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with Adaptive Damping System also contribute to the dynamic driving experience. In keeping with this, brand-specific features in the equipment and appointments as well as in the exterior and interior design emphasise the performance-oriented character of the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC.
Ferrari SF90 Spider - Driving Emotion - Emanuele Carando
Today the Spider version of the SF90 Stradale, the SF90 Spider, was presented at a dedicated digital event. This special online event offered Ferraristi from all over the world an exclusive introduction to the innovative features of the car and detailed information about its development. The SF90 Spider is the first plug-in hybrid Spider of the Cavallino Rampante to come as standard, setting new standards of performance and innovation not only for the brand's product range but for the entire sports car sector. The new convertible features the same extreme super sports car specifications and record-breaking performance as the SF90 Stradale, but offers even greater driving pleasure and versatility thanks to the latest evolution of Ferrari's signature retractable hardtop (RHT) architecture. This makes the SF90 Spider the ideal vehicle for those who want the cutting-edge technology of Ferrari, but still want the thrill of open-top driving.
Electric mobility is becoming dynamic and fascinating, as the Audi e-tron GT proves. The four-door coupé, which will be introduced in the market as an RS model at the same time, reinterprets the classic idea of the gran turismo: Its design is highly emotional, the technology revolutionary. Two powerful electric motors provide confident electric all-wheel drive and stunning road performance.
