With the new GR86, Toyota is introducing its third model from the GAZOO Racing family to be offered worldwide. Together with the GR Supra and the GR Yaris, the GR86 forms a fascinating trio of thoroughbred sports cars. The extensive experience of the factory team TOYOTA GAZOO Racing flowed directly into its development, whose diverse commitment in the top classes of international motorsport is crowned by numerous victories and championship titles. The new coupe marks the entry into Toyota's GR model range and gives a wider audience access to sporty handling and performance to match. As a logical further development of the predecessor called the GT86, with which Toyota has once again underlined its commitment to sports car construction, the new GR86 is also characterized by the classic configuration of front engine and rear-wheel drive. The engine is still a high-revving four-cylinder boxer, which thanks to a larger displacement can offer a significant increase in output and torque. Further technical modifications to the engine and transmission ensure that this additional potential is reflected in equally powerful acceleration across the entire engine speed range.
The new Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer - The design
" The mobility revolution is already having an ever increasing impact on urban traffic. In order to ensure traffic on the last mile in the future, the purely electric drive in the van segment is the logical consequence: with the eVito in 2018 and the eSprinter in 2019, Mercedes-Benz Vans has a pioneering role in the premium segment for locally emission-free, commercial freight transport adopted in urban space. The driving performance and range of the newly introduced eVito Tourer define a new dimension and meet all requirements: be it as a hotel shuttle, a large-capacity taxi or a vehicle for ride-sharing services. The new Mercedes-Benz eVito Tourer takes on the distinctive look of the Vito with a combustion engine. But under the dynamic front sits the electric drive train (eATS), which drives the front wheels with a peak power of 150 kW. The electric motor, the gearbox with fixed ratio, the cooling system and the power electronics form a compact unit. The energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery in the underbody of the vehicle. Their deep and central arrangement has a positive effect on the driving behavior of the eVito Tourer. The top speeds of 140 km / h as standard and 160 km / h as special equipment ensure rapid progress even away from city traffic. "
It is an Audi such as the world has never seen before: With the e-tron GT, the brand is demonstrating its plans for shaping an emotive and fascinating future of mobility. Presales of two models of the gran turismo with fully electric drive will start simultaneously in February 2021: the e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT. Both models are powerful, fast, and dynamic, and both have zero local emissions. The sum of these qualities adds up to a strong character that reinterprets the idea of the gran turismo. The exterior of the Audi e-tron GT is a dynamic work of art. Each surface and each line is harmonious, from the headlights, which are available with Audi laser light upon request, to the large diffuser at the rear. In combination, the details create a sculpture that looks like it was shaped by the wind. The body line is extremely aerodynamic, and the drag coefficient is just 0.24. The interior also corresponds to that of a classic gran turismo: The driver and front passenger seats are installed in a sporty low position and separated by a wide center console, and the rear seats provide sufficient space even for adults. The progressive elegance of the interior design emphasizes the car’s character.
Clear exterior design accents give it a purist appearance that emphasises the hallmark design features. In addition, the innovative Multitone Roof creates unique individualisation opportunities. In the interior, the extensively redesigned cockpit underlines the premium character of the MINI-3 door, the MINI-5 door and the MINI Convertible. Attractive additions to the range of standard and optional equipment, new exterior paint finishes, light-alloy wheels, interior and seating surfaces as well as innovative technology in the areas of chassis, driver assistance systems, operation and connectivity round off the latest update for the British brand's small car models.
