The new McLaren Artura - Interior design
The Artura's interior is every bit as revolutionary: The cockpit is more driver-focused than ever. The selection of driving modes - with separate controls for powertrain and handling - has been moved to the instrument cluster, which in turn is attached to the steering column and can be adjusted with the steering wheel to further improve driver ergonomics. The steering wheel thus remains free of unnecessary switches, but the driver can still set the driving modes without having to take his hands off the wheel.
For Abarth, 2020 was a year of successes: in racing, the Abarth 124 rally won the FIA R-GT Cup – basically the Gran Turismo world championships – for the third year running. Italian and German F4 Championships powered by Abarth: a story of success and promotion of young talents continues. In the Italian F4 championship, the young Gabriele Minì was the first Italian to win in the competition’s history. Commercial successes, too: market share is up almost 50% compared to 2019, setting an all-time record, and the 595 Scorpioneoro and 595 Monster Energy Yamaha have reached 80% of sales outside the domestic Italian market. In addition to its road victories, the Abarth Digital Day won the brand the Guinness World Record™ for the largest digital gathering ever.
Increased efficiency through consistent electrification, optimised emissions and innovations in the areas of driver assistance and digital services are the focus of the model revision measures for numerous BMW model series that will take effect in autumn 2020. From November 2020, all models of the premium brand will meet the requirements of the currently strictest exhaust emission standard Euro 6d. In the BMW 5 Series, the range of plug-in hybrid models has been extended by three new variants. New inline 6-cylinder diesel engines and 48-volt mild hybrid technology lower fuel consumption and emissions of selected models in the BMW 3 Series and BMW 8 Series. In addition, further engines will supplement the drive portfolio of the BMW 1 Series and the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé.
