Balancing efficient, yet powerful performance, the Arteon combines styling and technology in a manner rarely seen outside of high-end luxury sedans. As with models ranging from the Golf to the Atlas SUV, the 2019 Arteon is built on Volkswagen's award-winning MQB platform, which allows for its distinct, dynamic proportions and spacious interior.

Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport - Out and about in the Hajar Mountains
The exclave of the Emirate of Dubai around 100 kilometers southeast of the city of Dubai is in the Hajar Mountains, on the border with Oman. In the region around Hatta there are mainly: curves, curves, curves. An ideal terrain for the new Chiron Pur Sport and Andy Wallace. The Bugatti engineers developed the new Chiron Pur Sport uncompromisingly for lateral dynamics - and thus expanded the portfolio to include a street-legal hyper sports car with unusual driving characteristics. These include: maximum agility, handling and driving performance. Ideal for fast corners
Its 471 kW four-litre biturbo V8 provides the basis for superb driving characteristics. With 67 kW (90 PS) more than the Cayenne Turbo Coupé and maximum torque of 850 Nm (an increase of 80 Nm), the 0-100 km/h sprint is reduced to 3.3 seconds (0.6 s less) and top speed is now 300 km/h (an increase of 14 km/h). With even sportier lines and available exclusively as a four-seater Coupé, the Cayenne Turbo GT comes with all available chassis systems fitted as standard and performance tyres developed specially for this model. The powertrain and chassis also have a unique set-up specifically tuned for the Cayenne Turbo GT. The result is a harmonious overall concept with superb racetrack capability. This has been proven by Porsche test driver Lars Kern, who lapped the 20.832 km Nürburgring Nordschleife with the Cayenne Turbo GT in a time of 7:38.9 minutes, setting a new official SUV record.
In its latest edition, the open-top four-seater edition model combines its exclusive Deep Laguna metallic paintwork with the striking details of the new reduced MINI design language. The expressive tone of blue, in which the bumper strip is now also painted, and the model-specific bonnet stripes with edges in a contrasting colour set off the vehicle front with the enlarged hexagonal grille and the typical MINI round headlights in a particularly stylish way. The redesigned side scuttles are framed by a model identification featuring the “Sidewalk” inscription, and at the rear the two exhaust tailpipes are now surrounded by strikingly contoured surfaces painted in body colour. 17 inch Scissor Spoke 2-tone light-alloy wheels are also standard equipment on the edition model.
