The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class trailer
The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class continues this success story. Once again, it combines the perfection and high-tech solutions of the Mercedes-Benz flagship launched just a few months ago with the exclusivity and tradition of Maybach. The wheelbase is 18 centimetres longer than that of the long Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which is entirely to the benefit of the rear. Thanks to Executive seats and the Chauffeur Package, which come as standard, the rear compartment becomes a comfortable place to work or rest. In addition, there are exclusive details such as large wooden trim on the rear of the front seats and between the two rear passengers. Sales of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will start in various markets this year. Germany will follow in spring 2021.
V7 is one of the most celebrated and well-known Moto Guzzi models. This global fame is due to its ability to remain faithful to the expectations and reputation of a legendary brand like Moto Guzzi. Since 1967, the year the first units were sold in Italy, the V7 has become a cornerstone of the product range, representative of the ultimate Italian motorcycle and standing out for its content and design, highly popular with a wide and varied public. More than fifty years after the launch of the first unit, Moto Guzzi is proud to present the new V7, the most recent chapter of a unique history. The revamping is so profound that Moto Guzzi opted to change the name too: V7, without the progressive numbering with Roman numerals that had characterised the previous models - a testament to the almost total change from every point of view, even involving the chassis architecture and the engine. You wouldn't think so at first glance, and that is perhaps the highest compliment that could be paid the eagle brand designers and engineers in Mandello who have once again demonstrated their passion and skill in improving a legendary model like the V7, leaving its character and authenticity unaltered, values destined to last over time. Two versions are available: alongside the Stone, the most minimalist model with modern content, is the Special which, as always, remains the most classic and elegant.
In the course of some proverbial fine-tuning, Audi Sport GmbH is increasing the sportiness of the Audi RS 4 Avant and Audi RS 5. The new competition package is bursting with extras that both sharpen the cars’ appearance and make for a more emotional driving experience. With its optional coilover suspension (RS sport suspension pro), the competition plus package boasts a maximum in dynamics and driving fun while not compromising its top suitability for everyday use. Sometimes less is more: Reduced insulation between the engine compartment and the interior means the RS 4 Avant and RS 5 will thrill customers with an exciting, next-level sound experience. The potent biturbo V6 has 331 kW (450 PS) of power and a torque of 600 newton meters from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm4. The Audi RS 4 Avant and RS 5 with the competition packages will be available from dealers starting July. Prices start at 7.875 euros for the competition package and 11,875 euros for the competition plus package.
