The super SUV Urus and Aaron Durogati will face a unique challenge together. The Unlock Any Road concept of the Super SUV Urus meets the versatility of the two-time paragliding world champion Aaron Durogati, who will soon take part in the demanding Red Bull X-Alps. The 36-year-old Aaron Durogati, born in Merano, will start on June 20th in the Red Bull X-Alps, one of the toughest adventure races in the world, in which this time 33 selected participants will compete against each other over several days, all with paragliders and will be on foot (hike and fly). The aim is to pass the 1,238 kilometer long Alpine arc from Austria to Italy as quickly as possible. The race takes place in a daily time window between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. until the last athlete has completed the course.
Purify MINI - The new exterior design
A new design language for the exterior now puts the unmistakable appearance of the MINI in a decidedly purist light. The further developed aesthetics ensure that the central design features of the MINI are accentuated even more clearly and modernly through reduction. The front view of the MINI 3-door including the MINI Cooper SE, the MINI 5-door and the MINI Convertible is particularly expressive. It is dominated more than ever by the characteristic radiator grille, whose hexagonal surround now takes up significantly more space, and by the round headlights typical of MINI. The position lights are replaced by vertical air intakes positioned far to the outside, which serve as an opening for the Air Curtains to optimize aerodynamic properties. The central bumper strip, which also functions as a license plate holder, is now in body color rather than black.
The 660 platform represents the start of a new era for Aprilia. One defined by lightweight and high-performance motorcycles with an attractive design and unique, unequivocally premium technological content. It is Aprilia's response to the new generation's demand for easy and fun vehicles capable of being just as thrilling on the daily commute as they are on dynamic rides. The result is a range of medium-engine bikes that introduce a new conception of sportiness, in line with the expectations of a younger and more knowledgeable market. Following on the heels of the highly popular RS 660 and Tuono 660, dedicated to street sport riding, this is a true off-road bike. It bears a name that was introduced by Aprilia in 1985, which subsequently became legendary – a name so evocative it's clear what the bike is all about. With such a significant history, the Tuareg name expresses a unique set of values: a guarantee of riding quality, performance and fun. Tuareg 660, an off-road bike par excellence, is also exceptional on the road and on even the longest and most adventurous trips. It was designed to accompany those seeking freedom – a core value in the culture of the Tuareg people, who identify with the name “imohag”, meaning "free men". Granting the gift of freedom is Tuareg's real mission. Developed on the extraordinary mechanical base of the Aprilia 660 twin-cylinder, from the very first sketches it was designed to be mounted in a chassis architecture with a different intended use. Tuareg 660 was designed, developed and built to be the best combination of single-cylinder enduro bikes and medium-engine capacity adventure bikes. Two opposing worlds - until now. Tuareg 660 raises the bar for off-road adventure bike riding. But at the same time it places its supreme travelling spirit centre stage thanks to its impeccable performance on asphalt, its premium technical content, the performance of its 80 HP twin-cylinder and its reduced weight of just 187 kg without fluids.
In many ways, the Volvo C40 Recharge represents the future of Volvo Cars: it is the first Volvo model in history designed as pure electric only, and will be offered online with a convenient Care offer. Its SUV elements and benefits combined with a lower profile means that Volvo Cars also enters a new segment – and it does so with cutting-edge design and features not previously seen on Volvo cars. Built upon the fundamental building blocks of the XC40, the C40 gives the same sense of power and strong character as its sibling while adding athleticism and lightness. This idea of breaking new ground with something familiar is mirrored in individual details: the signature Thor’s Hammer headlights are augmented with new pixel LEDs, which automatically adjust to light conditions and switch on and off independently to optimise the light pattern. The equally emblematic vertical rear lights are now segmented, providing a testament to the engineering challenge of extending one big lamp along the roof line, while also creating a modern take on a classic design.
