The new Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha special series is designed as an exclusive product, defining the ultra-high performance of Abarth. Produced in a limited edition of 2,000 units, the new special series celebrates the partnership between the two brands, which has now lasted since 2015. A bond based on shared values: performance, racing, technology and fun. Aesthetically inspired by the livery of the 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’s YZR-M1, the exterior of the new special series features a dual colour blue and black livery bearing the ‘Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’ logo on its lower side, just above the 595 logo. The special series is finished off with the Monster ‘claw’ on the bonnet, a sign of the new collaboration between the Scorpion and the renowned energy drink. The dark colours are contrasted with the grey finishes, as seen in the door handles and the front and rear DAM. On the inside, the model features the special new Abarth sports seats with blue finishes and the ‘Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’ logo on the head restraints. The blue lining stands out from the black dashboard, mirroring the dual colour livery, while the numbered plate is placed on the central tunnel. The Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha is equipped with a 1.4 T-jet engine with Euro6D TEMP homologation, with manual transmission delivering 165hp.
Volkswagen Golf GTI with new driving dynamics manager
Agile drive, picture-book chassis, tamper-proof design, perfect ergonomics, pure driving pleasure - the DNA of a genuine sports car. At Volkswagen, three letters stand for this: GTI. Now comes the eighth generation of the Golf classic. The new Golf GTI is more digital, more connected, more sharply cut, and more driving-friendly than ever before. The turbo engine develops 180 kW (245 hp). A new driving dynamics manager intelligently blends the electromechanical chassis systems. Maximum dynamics, maximum comfort - this Golf GTI combines both. Generation 8 of the Golf GTI reflects a new status quo of front-wheel drive. The new Driving Dynamics Manager plays a decisive role in this. "The system centrally and superordinately coordinates the electromechanical chassis functions," explains Karsten Schebsdat, Head of Driving Dynamics, Steering and Control Systems. "The combination of a retuned chassis plus front axle cross-lock and driving dynamics manager has enabled us to take the outstanding overall performance of the Golf GTI to yet another higher level. This is even more true when the DCC suspension with adjustable dampers, equipped with a new software application, is also on board.""
