The continuous evolution of Nissan's flagship GT-R NISMO takes another step forward with the addition of a new Special Edition, which was previewed today in Yokohama, Japan. The GT-R NISMO Special Edition features a NISMO-exclusive Stealth Gray exterior color, new edition-exclusive 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels with red accents, and a unique clear-coated carbon fiber hood that exposes the intricate carbon fiber weave. For the first time for GT-R, the new Nissan logo adorns the trunk lid and wheel center caps. A very limited number of the new model will be available in North America this fall. Pricing for the GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be announced at a later date. The GT-R NISMO remains Nissan's ultimate performance super sports car that provides race-proven technology and an exhilarating driving experience for virtually everyone. The GT-R NISMO's VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 remains the heart of the GT-R's drivetrain and is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The GT-R NISMO Special Edition utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.
The new Ford Puma ST - The Design
"Seven attractive exterior colors - including exclusively for Ford Puma ST - Furious-Green Metallic As exterior colors for the body, in addition to Obsidian-Black Metallic, Dynamic-Blue Metallic, Fantastic-Red Metallic, Frost-White, Fancy-Gray and Magnetic-Gray Metallic, the Furious-Green Metallic, available only for the ST, is available. The high-gloss black finish on the roof, radiator grille frame, exterior mirror housings and rear roof polish serves as another hallmark of the new ST variant. The interior has an equally charismatic appearance - even before you get in, as the factory-folding exterior mirrors project the ST logo onto the underbody when the vehicle is unlocked. Inside, heated Recaro sports seats welcome the driver and front passenger. The seats, made of non-slip Miko Dinamica with an embroidered ST logo, provide excellent support. Ford Performance door sill trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with flattened underside and a shift knob with ST badge add further accents. Rounding out the expressive interior are gray stitching on the seats, shift knob cuff and ST-branded floor mats. Just like the other Puma trim versions, the Puma ST has a luggage capacity of 456 liters, which is outstanding in the crossover segment. Then there's the innovative Ford MegaBox. This flexibly usable storage space provides 81 liters of additional volume below the trunk floor, so that the rear of the new Puma ST can accommodate two upright golf bags, for example."
In April, Volkswagen presented the latest evolutionary stage of the sixth generation of Polo. Now comes its sportiest version: the new Polo GTI. The bearer of the legendary acronym spearheads the Polo segment in terms of performance, technology and sportiness. The powerful TSI engine and sports chassis, tailored specifically to the Polo GTI, transform the best-selling compact car into a dynamic, four-door sports car, which also allows semi-automated driving as an option for the first time in a Polo GTI. A host of the latest generation of assistance systems guarantee even greater comfort and safety for all passengers.
There are features in your vehicle you hope you will never have to use – and yet it is reassuring to have them on board. This is true, for example, of the automatic emergency call eCall, which has been mandatory for every new car in the EU since 2018. The mobile online services of ŠKODA Connect also offer other helpful functions in all current ŠKODA models with the exception of the CITIGOᵉ iV, grouped as proactive services under Care Connect. These support drivers with any questions they have about the car. Two functions in particular help to ensure a relaxed journey, especially during the travel season: the info and breakdown calls, the buttons for which can be found in the roof module next to the red emergency call button and are marked with an ‘i’ or a spanner.
