McLaren 600LT Spider is the fifth car to carry the Longtail name, the new convertible fully embodies the McLaren Longtail philosophy of increased power, reduced weight, optimised aerodynamics, track-focused dynamics and limited availability. In addition, it brings a new dimension of excitement over the 600LT Coupé, without compromise to the dynamic purity of the most performance-focused car in the Sports Series line-up: a retractable hardtop to give the choice of open-air driving. Like its 600LT Coupé sibling, the Spider records a significant weight saving over the model on which it is based, with McLaren's engineers achieving a reduction of 100kg at DIN weight over the 570S Spider. Furthermore, thanks to its lightweight but incredibly strong carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis, the convertible 600LT retains the structural rigidity of the Coupé with none of the strengthening that is usually required with conventional steel or aluminium structures. The result is a weight penalty of only 50kg over the Coupé, which contributes to a lightest dry weight of just 1,297kg for the Spider. This is at least 80kg less than any direct competitor and the equivalent power-to-weight ratio of 463PS-per-tonne underpins astonishing levels of performance and dynamic prowess.
The new Ford Puma ST - Bold, eye-catching styling
"The Puma's already sporty styling with features like the sloping roofline silhouette and pronounced wheel arches naturally lent itself to the Puma ST's design made even more extreme to combine form and function. The Puma ST offers Magnetite or machined metal finishes for the standard 19'' alloy wheels, and six exterior hues that include Agate Black, Desert Island Blue, Fantastic Red, Frozen White, Magnetic and bold, as well as the exclusive Mean Green. In addition, a Gloss Black finish for the roof, front grille surrounds, mirror caps and rear roof spoiler are all standard, making the model even easier to identify/recognize. While the interior is equally charismatic, the excitement is immediate from the moment the doors are unlocked when the standard power-folding exterior mirrors project the ST logo onto the ground. Inside, heated and upholstered Recaro sport seats - embossed with the ST logo and trimmed in Miko Dinamica non-slip material - hold the driver and front passenger firmly in place. Also featured are Ford Performance skid plates, flat-bottom leather steering wheel and ST shift knob. The seats, shift lever cover and ST badged floor mats are finished with Metal Grey stitching."
With the luxury saloon EQS and the sporty executive saloon EQE, Mercedes-Benz has entered a new, all-electric era in the upper market segments as well. The EQS SUV, the third model series with this architecture developed for electric vehicles, will soon follow. The SUV offers plenty of space, comfort and connectivity for up to seven passengers in its avant-garde, luxurious interior. Thanks to powerful electric motors, responsive 4MATIC all-wheel drive and an intelligent OFFROAD driving mode, the EQS SUV is also capable of tackling light terrain with ease. The new EQS SUV shares the long wheelbase (3210 millimetres) with the EQS Saloon, but is over 20 centimetres higher. The dimensions in detail: 5125/1959/1718 millimetres (length/width/height). The interior dimensions benefit from these generous SUV dimensions and from the advantages of the purpose design tailored to the electric platform. The second row of seats can be electrically adjusted as standard. Up to four golf bags fit in the boot. A third row of seats with two additional individual seats and extensive comfort features for all passengers is available as an option.
Genesis completed GV70’s design that not only is dynamic but also meets practical needs of SUV consumers based on various design elements including the signature Crest Grille and the Quad Lamps, representing the Genesis wing emblem. The front of GV70 displays an aggressive image as the Crest Grille is set lower than the headlamps while its twin-lined Quad Lamps add a sense of speed and dynamism. Moreover, the skid plate placed underneath the bumpers has been extended to the flank, reinforcing the image of a sporty SUV. The hallmark of the GV70’s side profile is its emphasis on a dynamic expression created by a dramatic contrast of its rear fender with the arching Parabolic Line that begins at the top of Quad Lamps and runs across the body. The sleek and elegant coupe-like roofline, along with the dropping chrome line to the C-pillar, accentuates the sporty characteristics.
