McLaren 600LT Spider is the fifth car to carry the Longtail name, the new convertible fully embodies the McLaren Longtail philosophy of increased power, reduced weight, optimised aerodynamics, track-focused dynamics and limited availability. In addition, it brings a new dimension of excitement over the 600LT Coupé, without compromise to the dynamic purity of the most performance-focused car in the Sports Series line-up: a retractable hardtop to give the choice of open-air driving. Like its 600LT Coupé sibling, the Spider records a significant weight saving over the model on which it is based, with McLaren's engineers achieving a reduction of 100kg at DIN weight over the 570S Spider. Furthermore, thanks to its lightweight but incredibly strong carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis, the convertible 600LT retains the structural rigidity of the Coupé with none of the strengthening that is usually required with conventional steel or aluminium structures. The result is a weight penalty of only 50kg over the Coupé, which contributes to a lightest dry weight of just 1,297kg for the Spider. This is at least 80kg less than any direct competitor and the equivalent power-to-weight ratio of 463PS-per-tonne underpins astonishing levels of performance and dynamic prowess.
The new Toyota Mirai - Driving dynamics
- New GA-L platform with torsionally rigid structure provides the foundation for agile and stable handling - Ideally balanced weight distribution thanks to new arrangement of fuel cell, high-voltage battery, electric motor and hydrogen tanks - Advanced multi-link wheel suspensions - Peak power of 134 kW/182 hp - Improved acceleration performance, greater fuel efficiency and longer range.
The UX 300e retains the unmistakable design and high functionality of the compact crossover model and thus offers an excellent overall package. The distinctive and high-quality exterior design, which reflects robustness and agility, is complemented by special wheels and an underbody cover in the UX 300e in favor of aerodynamics. The arrangement of the shift-by-wire system on the center console adds to the simplicity and functionality of the interior. Lexus is committed to developing and rapidly adopting the most advanced safety technologies to prevent accidents, reduce road deaths, reduce the stress on drivers and contribute to a more natural and safer driving experience. The UX 300e uses the safety and assistance systems that Lexus groups together under the name Lexus Safety System +.
Beauty, technology and a hint of the future come together in Toyota’s new flagship sedan, the all-new 2021 Mirai. Toyota has fully rebooted the Mirai as a premium rear-wheel drive sports-luxury FCEV with striking design, cutting-edge technology, more engaging driving performance and a significantly longer EPA-estimated range rating. The model name, which means future in Japanese, is wholly appropriate, as the 2021 Mirai is powered by the latest evolution of the brand’s advanced fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) powertrain. The body is lower, longer, and wider, with its bolder stance accentuated by standard 19-inch alloy wheels. A more powerful fuel cell system provides a more engaging driving experience than its pioneering forerunner. The rear-wheel drive layout and four-wheel independent suspension deliver a true sports-luxury sedan driving feel, with greater handling agility than before, yet also with a more comfortable ride.
