Talking to Angelique Kerber at this year's Bad Homburg Open.
New Abarth 595 Competizione Design
The brand with the Scorpion badge is introducing the new Abarth 595 range, which embodies the evolution of their most iconic model. Advanced engineering and care for details in a model capable of boldly expressing the two personalities of the brand - performance and style. The four versions of the new 595 range are compact, light, agile and importantly all unparalleled in terms of customisation. The 595 is a successful range that today presents new strengths sure to capture the trademark nuances of the Abarth character. Hatchback or convertible, the new 595 range features five versions (595, 595 Pista, 595 Turismo, 595 Competizione and 695 Rivale) with power levels from 145 to 180 HP, all Euro 6D-TEMP compliant, to satisfy all customer needs. From the technical and performance point of view, peculiarly on the 595 Competizione and the 595 Pista, the main new feature is the new Record Monza Attivo exhaust, now standard on both versions and today equipped with an active valve controlled by a Sport button. Pressing the Sport button opens the exhaust valve and the engine rumble becomes deeper and bolder. The driver can choose a gentleman driver engine sound or a tougher, sportier - and more traditionally Abarth - roar. While the 595 Competizione is somewhat more radical and designed for performance and no-compromise sports car fans, the 595 Turismo hints to the style and comfort typical of Italian GTs. There is plenty of focus on details, with premium leather interiors and Urban Pack that comes with light sensor, rain sensor and parking sensors.
The Dodge Challenger is the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car. While the record-setting Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was and will remain a one-year, limited-production build, the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is born from its successes and, for 2021 model year, is the halo of the Challenger lineup, out-performing the competition in the modern horsepower wars. The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is powered by the same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® high-output V-8 that powers the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with a revised powertrain calibration that increases rated power output to an 807 horsepower.
As a result of a further refined ŠKODA design language, the KODIAQ presents as even more emotive and self-assured. The upgrade will be available from July 2021. The Active, Ambition and Style trims will come with aluminium-effect detail on the front and rear apron, lending the SUV even more off road styling. The restyled front with an elevated bonnet and the redesigned, more upright ŠKODA grille reinforce the KODIAQ’s bold appearance. The Czech carmaker’s large SUV features LED headlights as standard and, for the first time, can be equipped with full LED Matrix headlights. New alloy wheels measuring up to 20 inches further enhance the car’s dynamic and striking look. Special Aero wheels, redesigned front and rear bumpers, and the new gloss black rear spoiler and finlets on the sides of the rear window all reduce drag. The KODIAQ RS now features a distinct, dynamically designed model-specific front bumper.
