For Mercedes-AMG Motorsport, the turbulent 24-hour race at the Nürburgring ends with a podium result and two further top ten positions. The most successful GT3 from Affalterbach is the #7 Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed car: with a rousing final spurt, Maximilian Götz (GER), Daniel Juncadella (ESP), and Raffaele Marciello (ITA) secured third place overall. Further down, Jules Gounon (FRA), Fabian Schiller (both GER) and Matthieu Vaxiviere (FRA) concluded the season highlight in sixth place with the team’s #8 sister car. Tenth place for 10Q Racing Teams (#40) with Dominik Baumann (AUT), Yelmer Buurman (NED), Kenneth Heyer and Thomas Jäger (both GER) rounds out the top ten results. The 49th ADAC TOTAL 24h Race will go down into the history books of the race as the shortest running because of an interruption of over 14.5 hours. The #4 Mercedes-AMG Team HRT car that had been dominant until the red flag was out was in contention for victory after the restart but retired following an accident while in second place. With the Mercedes-AMG GT4, the performance and sports car brand scored two class wins (SP10 and SP8T) by Customer Racing Teams Schnitzelalm Racing and BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR.
2020 Toyota Hilux Invincible X in Titan Bronze Driving Video
The new Toyota Hilux, with numerous modifications and improvements in a myriad of elements, from the body to the engine through the chassis, equipment and infotainment technology. Thus, Hilux 2021 can now be purchased, in a pre-sale format until the first units reach the Spanish market at the end of the year or early 2021. The new Hilux, an extension of the success story of more than four decades that stars this pick-up thanks to its undeniable values of quality, durability and reliability, presents a renewed design, in which its new front panel stands out, the LED option for headlights and lamps, the new range of alloy wheels and, especially, the new Hilux INVINCIBLE version with an exclusive, powerful and robust image. Like the 2021 Land Cruiser, the new Hilux is powered by the new 150 kW / 204 hp 2.8D engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed Super ECT automatic transmission. This engine will coexist with the 110 kW / 150 hp 2.4D that Hilux has been running since 2016.
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 generation of BMW iDrive takes the interaction between driver and vehicle into a digital future where many areas of life are getting increasingly smart. The new interpretation of BMW’s operating system equips the vehicle to actively engage in its relationship with those on board and, in so doing, serves as a digital, intelligent and proactive partner in any situation. A natural dialogue is created with the aim of precisely tailoring all the functions controlled via BMW iDrive to the driver’s needs and preferences as the situation demands. Underpinning the unique user experience are the new BMW Operating System 8, a new generation of displays, controls and software, and extremely powerful connectivity and data processing. The new iDrive will be rolled out gradually across all vehicle classes, making its debut later this year in the BMW iX before also featuring in the BMW i4. The ability of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant to adjust to the driver’s individual needs and routines, as well as the situation at hand, makes it – more than ever – a central operating channel of human-machine interaction. The operating system is designed with a clear focus on dialogue-based interaction using natural language and touch operation via the BMW Curved Display. And then there is “Great Entrance Moments”, which brings emotionality to the relationship between driver and vehicle even before the driver climbs on board. This new customer experience welcomes the driver and invites them into the vehicle with a thoroughly choreographed routine. During the journey, the new My Modes use an all-encompassing interplay of various functions to conjure special moments from a combination of vehicle characteristics and the interior ambience adapted to the situation at hand.
