The new BRABUS 900 XLP “ONE OF TEN” is powered by the brawniest engine from BRABUS production: The BRABUS ROCKET 900 V8 twin-turbo, increased-displacement engine is an evolution of the G 63 engine with a displacement increase to 4.5 liters. It produces a peak output of 662 kW / 900 hp (888 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft), though the latter is capped at 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft) in the vehicle. It pushes the high-end pickup from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds. Due to the high center of gravity and the all-terrain tires mounted on custom-developed BRABUS Z/HD 22-inch forged wheels, the top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph). The vehicle pictured in the attached photos sports a ‘ROCKET Grey’ special paint finish and a black BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior with carbon adornments and elements glazed in red.
Volkswagen - E-mobility is already this climate-friendly today
Is the electric car really more climate-friendly than a new car with a modern combustion engine? There is hardly a question that is discussed as passionately from the talk show to the regulars' table as this. At least one thing is certain: if an electric car is charged with green electricity, it does not cause any climate-damaging carbon dioxide emissions. However, the carbon footprint of an electric car does not only begin when the proud new owner presses the start button for the first time. This accounting already starts in the manufacturing process. Volkswagen is therefore systematically reducing CO2 emissions in production with energy efficiency and the use of green electricity. Only the carbon dioxide, which the manufacturer and its suppliers cannot avoid in production today, is then offset - for example with certified climate protection projects in the Indonesian rainforest. In this way, the Volkswagen brand has already managed to deliver the Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4 to customers with a carbon-neutral balance sheet. In order for the calculation to work out completely, all values have to be correct. It is crucial to provide the production of every component with a serious CO2 value. In addition, Volkswagen goes through all the components of a car step by step in order to reduce their climate impact during manufacture. The experts start with the parts whose manufacture emits a particularly large amount of CO2: the battery system, steel and aluminum

The BMW i4 M50 (power consumption combined: 22.5 – 18.0 kWh/100 km according to WLTP; CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) for which the M Carbon exterior package was exclusively reserved so far, will also be available for all other model variants of the BMW i4 and the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé from March 2022, also in conjunction with the M Sport model. It includes surrounds for the air curtains in the front apron, exterior mirror caps, a rear spoiler and diffuser insert trims made of the equally light and striking carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic.

Alpine is unveiling its new A110 range consisting of the A110, the New A110 GT and the New A110 S. All three revised versions of the A110 line-up are characteristically Alpine, and each has its own distinctive character and purpose. In their own way, they treat drivers to three kinds of Alpine experience. They are as light and agile as any car with an Alpine badge and come with a four-cylinder 1.8-litre turbocharged engine, paired with a Getrag seven-speed automatic gearbox with a dual wet clutch to deliver the iconic Alpine experience. The entry-level model, the A110 features the Alpine chassis and a 252hp engine offering similar driving characteristics to the original Berlinette – it is light, lively and precise, and delivers an agile and vibrant drive on all roads. The New Alpine A110 GT is the range’s Grand Tourisme sports coupe. With 300hp and renowned Alpine chassis, it strikes a fine balance between performance and comfort. Versatile and elegant, the A110 GT is a sports car perfectly suited to everyday and long-distance driving, as well as more involved drives on twisty roads. The New Alpine A110 S sits at the top of the revised range, focused on performance with 300hp and a unique Sports chassis. Optional semi-slick tyres and a new custom-made aerodynamic body kit brings enhanced thrills, precision and enjoyment – especially on track.
