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 new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - Comfortable even in smaller parking spaces and narrow driveways
The S-Class features Active Parking Assist with rear-view camera as standard, and it can be combined with a 360° camera as an option. In the S-Class, the information from all sensors and cameras is fused. This allows more parking spaces to be detected and offered. This is because parking spaces limited by lines (rather than vehicles) can also be used for automated parking for the first time.
