Isprobao sam Mercedesov mali SUV GLA: Sa 109 Renaultovih konjskih snaga i Mercedesovih sedam automatskih brzina
Mercedesov mali SUV kao i većinu njihovih malih modela kupuje bogatija klijentela kao drugi automobil u svojoj garaži. Ostatak svijeta smatra da su mali modeli premium brendova preskupi za ono što daju i da za te novce manje razvikana konkurencija pruža mnogo-mnogo više. Male modele top brendova kupuju i oni koji silno žele ostvariti želju posjedovanja brenda pa premda bili i svjesni da osim znaka na prednjoj maski od premium nema ni p.
At the Paris Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz presented its new product brand for electric mobility: EQ. The name EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is derived from the Mercedes-Benz brand values of “Emotion and Intelligence”. The new brand encompasses all key aspects for customer-focused electric mobility and extends beyond the vehicle itself. EQ offers a comprehensive electric mobility ecosystem of products, services, technologies and innovations. The spectrum ranges from electric vehicles to wallboxes and charging services to home energy storage units. The new brand is heralded by the close-to-production concept vehicle “Generation EQ”, which will celebrate its world premiere in Paris. The first series-produced EQ model will be launched in the SUV segment before the end of this decade.
The rear of the world’s most-produced GT racing car now houses a 4-litre, six-cylinder flat engine for even more drive. Thanks to thoroughbred motorsport technology, the compact engine with direct fuel injection delivers peak performance of 357 kW (485 hp).
Each of these turbo sports cars features a charge-air cooling system, which uses cool air in the combustion chambers to provide more thrust and efficiency. While the Porsche 911 offers direct cooling, the new 718 models will feature indirect charge-air cooling with an integrated water circuit – a high-tech refrigerator for the combustion air.
This year Volkswagen entered the specially tuned Beetle LSR (Land Speed Record) in the World of Speed event on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. It set a new record for the Beetle, reaching a speed of 205.122 mph (328.195 km/h) over a flying mile.
0-60 mph in 2.54 seconds, to 100 mph in 6.52 seconds, and passing the quarter mile in 10.78 seconds at 124.5 mph
The 100-kilowatt-hour electric car has arrived in the form of the Tesla Model S P100D, and boy is it quick. The folks from DragTimes got access to one of the first Ludicrous mode-equipped examples delivered to a customer and naturally they immediately strapped a Racelogic Performance Box to it to see what it could do.
1974. godina. Čvrsto držim ručicu punog gasa i naginjem motor što više mogu. Znam da svaki zavoj treba savladati još brže i još niže. Moj sportski moped od 50 kubika radi perfektno. Sve sam mu promijenio, tu je prošireni ispuh s rezonantnim auspuhom, prošireni usis s većim sportskim karburatorom, spuštena glava motora, bolje karike, prilagođeni prijenos, fastback, hebli, gume... sve. Tu sam i ja, klinac od 14 godina koji voli miris Castrola, stazu i uživa u lijepom danu na Mičevcu. Otpuštanje gasa, naginjanje, pun gas na izlazu, hajdemo još jednom, neumorno, mogao bih tako cijeli dan...
Within the ‘Berkeley Square’ showroom, Rolls-Royce will be represented by two magnificent cars from the company’s 113-year history
Rolls-Royce will celebrate the 2016 Goodwood Revival with a significant presence at the legendary motor circuit. The centrepiece will be The March Motor Works, which this year is transformed into a period Rolls-Royce showroom, recapturing the sights, sounds and atmosphere of the marque’s glamorous Berkeley Square and Park Lane premises in London’s West End during the 1950s.

Rimac Racing Team will attend the European Hill Climb Championship in Buzet, Croatia. They will take part in the event with the Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One, the famous race car that Nobuhiro Monster Tajima raced on Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2015 and 2016. As the racecar was developed and manufactured in Croatia, Rimac Automobili and Monster Sport wanted to give the European and especially Croatian public an opportunity to see the car in action.
The road to electromobility leads across a technological bridge on which the best attributes of two technologies are combined into a new, environmentally friendly drive concept. It is of course much too early to bid farewell to the internal combustion engine. But in the future, this well-proven drive technology of more than 130 years standing will have to share the space under the bonnet with one or more electric motors if the emissions limits prescribed by the EU Commission are to be complied with. Mercedes-Benz already reacted in 2014 by bringing the first model with plug-in hybrid technology to market. In 2015 this was followed by two further models, and by 2017 nine more models are to be available with this drive system.
Chevrolet promised to offer the first affordable electric vehicle with 200 miles or more of range and will exceed those expectations when the 2017 Bolt EV goes on sale later this year. With the vehicle’s EPA-estimated range of 238 miles, owners can expect to go beyond their average daily driving needs — with plenty of range to spare — in the 2017 Bolt EV when charging regularly.
Dynamic duo TT RS Coupé and TT RS Roadster: The Coupé takes 3.7 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph), and the Roadster takes 3.9 seconds
Muscular front end, large air inlets, low-positioned spoiler, fixed rear wing – at first glance, the Audi TT RS clearly hints at just how much power there is under its streamlined skin. Its new five-cylinder aluminum engine delivers 400 hp, which is 60 more than the power of the previous model.
Jaguar F-Pace u Hrvatskoj starta cijenom od 400 000 kuna za osnovni model sa 180 konjskih snaga, ručnim mjenjačem i pogonom na stražnje kotače. 3.0 diesel motor s 300 PS, automatskim mjenjačem, pogonom na sva četiri kotača i punom opremom, podupla cijenu pa i više od toga. Ima li razloga da čovjek posegne tako duboko u džep, iskreno nema.
40 years ago, Audi presented the first five-cylinder gasoline engine in the second-generation Audi 100. Enhancements and new developments followed, with turbocharging, emissions control and four-valve technology, rally engines and five-cylinder diesel units. Today, the 2.5 TFSI in the Audi RS 3 Sportback* and in the Audi TT RS carries on the great tradition of five-cylinder powerplants.
The five-cylinder engines from Audi have achieved cult status – partly due to their successful deployment in motorsport and also on account of their reliability and economy. They have played a vital role in defining Vorsprung durch Technik and to this day provide an emotional driving experience with their characteristic sound.
The brand with the four rings is extending its design language in the Audi allroad shooting brake.
