The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon has arrived in the US, sporting a sleek gran turismo design, upscale interior, innovative technology, and available 4Motion all-wheel drive. Balancing efficient, yet powerful performance, the Arteon combines styling and technology in a manner rarely seen outside of high-end luxury sedans. As with models ranging from the Golf to the Atlas SUV, the 2019 Arteon is built on Volkswagen's award-winning MQB platform, which allows for its distinct, dynamic proportions and spacious interior. The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will be available in SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels and is anticipated to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers in May 2019. Every Arteon model will come with the People First Warranty, America's Best Bumper-to-Bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The warranty provides coverage for six years or 72,000 miles (whichever occurs first), and the warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout the remainder of its duration. MSRP for the VW Arteon SE starts at $35,845, with standard driver-assistance systems and a host of upscale convenience features. The SEL trim starts at $39,995, adding features such as Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, Nappa leather seating surfaces, and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go. The top-of-the-line SEL Premium starts at $44,945, and brings upscale luxury with ventilated front seats, a massaging driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and a suite of driver-assistance systems including Park Assist and Overhead View Camera (Area View). R-Line trims add either 19-inch wheels ($1,265) or 20-inch wheels ($1,765) and paddle shifters, along with unique design elements inside and out. 4Motion all-wheel-drive adds $1,800 to SE and SEL models and comes standard on SEL Premium models. Destination for all Arteon models is $995.
2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible Unveil Video
The LC 500 Convertible may be based in part on the LC 500 coupe, but it is no mere crop-topped replica. Considerable driving evaluation and analysis went into crafting unique driving qualities that give the vehicle its own athletic identity to offer impressive performance that remains true to its convertible design. Enhancing structural rigidity was high on the list of objectives. Engineers went to work crafting an all-new torsion box at the rear, which, when paired with a new suspension tower brace and V-brace, help provide enhanced rigidity, handling stability and linear responsiveness. Chassis rigidity is further enhanced with the relocation of various structural braces, which includes additional gusseting at the bottom of both the A and B pillars. Laser Screw Welding and the use of high-tensile-strength steel through the structure also aids in chassis reinforcement. Careful attention was given to the LC Convertible’s suspension, which is tuned specifically to complement the subtle changes in weight between the coupe and convertible. From its dampers and coils, to its bushings and the unique Yamaha Performance damper placed transversely at the rear, the Convertible’s specially-designed components are designed to help ensure comfortable, yet sharp, road-going performance. A reduction of un-sprung weight in the front suspension improves the overall stroke, and weight is also reduced in the rear with the use of lightweight die-cast aluminum for the construction of the suspension tower brace.
How close the new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series actually is to motorsport has now been impressively demonstrated by GT3 racer Maro Engel on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. With an officially measured and notarized certified time of 6:43,616 min for the 20.6 kilometre-long track (measured without the straight at track section T13) and 6:48,047 min for the 20.832 kilometre-long total track (measured with the straight at track section T13), the new V8 meteor is placed in the top group of the street-legal “sports cars” category and number one among the fully standard, unmodified models.
The Model Year 2021 of Giulia and Stelvio is being refreshed following an intuitive logic and offers the most appropriate driving trim both for customers seeking sportiness and for those who prefer exclusive comfort and elegance. Stelvio makes its debut appearance in the "Veloce Ti" trim level, a perfect combination of sporty content and style that highlights the superb performance of this SUV, now with new and more efficient engines, in line with E6d-Final regulations. The MY21 Stelvio range also boasts all-new 21-inch alloy wheels – to date only available up to 20-inch. On the one hand, these emphasize the car’s dynamic qualities, courtesy of its distinctly sporty identity; on the other, they expand the offer of Alfa Romeo’s first SUV. New wheel rims are available with a dual burnished and silver-plated finish, and with a specific design for the higher-performance Quadrifoglio version.
