McLaren Automotive, the British manufacturer of luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars, is expanding its Super Series product family with the introduction of a second new model under the £1.2bn Track25 business plan and its most accomplished convertible supercar ever: the new McLaren 720S Spider. Revealed online on December 8, 2018 and available to order with immediate effect, the new 720S Spider delivers the exhilaration of open-air driving and levels of day-to-day usability unseen in the convertible supercar class. The design foundations of the new McLaren Spider are the seamless and organic forms introduced in 2017 with the 720S Coupé. Combining to maximise downforce, minimise drag, enhance powertrain cooling and optimise aerodynamic performance, these shapes produce an overall appearance akin to a futuristic sculpture, formed by the air that flows over, under, around and through it. A new, electrically actuated Retractable Hard Top (RHT) is seamlessly integrated into the design, as are new buttresses.
The original - always new - The MINI 3-door, the MINI 5-door, the MINI Convertible
Clear accents in the exterior design help them achieve a purist appearance that emphasizes the design features typical of the brand particularly intensively. In addition, the innovative Multitone Roof creates unique opportunities for individualization. In the interior, the extensively renewed cockpit underscores the premium character of the MINI 3-door, MINI 5-door and MINI Convertible. Attractive additions to the standard and optional equipment packages, new exterior paint finishes, alloy wheels, interior and seat 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. Twenty years after the launch of sales for the modern MINI, the latest model generation presents itself in top form. The concept associated with the relaunch of the brand - to develop premium automobiles for the small car segment - has become a unique and global success story.
Much of Spain has been collapsed by the snowfalls caused by the storm Filomena, but weather conditions similar to those we are experiencing these days are normal in other countries in Northern Europe. In them, drivers continue to circulate with their vehicles thanks to winter tires, so we wanted to discover some of their characteristics that allow them to have grip even in the most extreme conditions. There is a tendency to think that winter tires are specifically designed for driving in extreme snow conditions, however, they really are tires for driving in cold conditions. Its performance is better than that of summer tires on any surface with temperatures below 7ºC, temperatures that we easily find in peninsular winters.
This purist and powerful 375 kW 911 GT3 with a weight of just 1,418 kilograms is delivered with a six-speed GT sports gearbox as standard. For the first time, the Touring package can also be combined with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission at no extra cost. The exterior’s most conspicuous difference is the omission of the fixed rear wing of the 911 GT3. The necessary downforce at high speeds and even more understatement are guaranteed by an automatically extending rear spoiler. Silver-coloured trim strips made of high-gloss anodised aluminium on the side windows are another distinguishing feature that underline the newcomer’s discreet appearance. The front end is painted completely in the exterior colour. The interior, with extended leather items in Black, is particularly elegant and is available exclusively for the GT3 with Touring package. The front of the dashboard and the upper side sections of the door trim panels have special surface embossing.
