Mercedes has a lot of sweet new toys to play with right now, from the new G-Wagen to the AMG GT four-door, but it hasn't forgotten about its other toys, including one of its oldest. It announced some minor updates for its SLC-Class roadster for 2019, a car that hasn't seen a complete redesign since 2012. The standard SLC300 gets some new standalone options, such as ambient lighting, blind spot monitoring, and an analog dash clock, but the SLC43 gets the good stuff. It gets a power boost. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG SLC43 now makes 385 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged V6. That's an increase of 23 horsepower over last year's model. This also helps bring it closer to the old V8-powered version. No torque changes were mentioned, so the engine likely still makes 384 pound-feet of torque or thereabouts. In addition to the healthy power boost, the SLC43 also gets standard dual-zone automatic climate control and LED headlights with adaptive high beams. Pricing for the little Mercedes roadster has not been announced. Odds are that the pricing won't change much from the $49,395 for the SLC300 and $62,345 for the SLC43. Availability hasn't been revealed either. But it's safe to say the updated models will appear on lots by the end of the year.Automotive Cars News,mercedes, amg, slc, 2019, cars, roadster, 43, car, review, interior, slk, biturbo, g63, suv, drive, sound, benz, mercedes slc, 2018, mercedes slc updated for 2018, update, mercedes-benz, test drive, v6, mercedes benz, new, convertible, automobile, premiere, gt, como, funny, scoope, truck, launch, 4x4, sport, carros, youtube, autos
Up front, the new Sonata looks much wider than the current model. Part of this is due to the headlights being moved to sit inline with the top of the grille, as opposed to slightly above on the current model.HOT NEWS 2020 Hyundai Sonata shows fresh shape among competitors Automotive Cars News And while we can't see it clearly, the grille will likely have a similar shape to that of the current model and other Hyundais. The fenders also wrap around the top of the car more, further contributing to the car's wide stance. The profile of this new Sonata is different, too. It's a bit more traditional in how the engine compartment area doesn't blend into windshield as much. The current Sonata blends the engine, passenger and trunk compartments more. There's also a curve to the bottom of the greenhouse on the new car that lends the car a more graceful, less upright appearance. There is still a fastback look to the rear of the Sonata, but it's stretched out more, again helping the car look less upright. This is the first time we've seen the next-generation Hyundai Sonata, but it does look as though it's pretty far in development. What we can see of it appears to be production ready. As such, we probably won't have long to wait to see the car revealed. It will probably show up sometime next year in time for the 2020 model year.Automotive Cars News,hyundai sonata, hyundai, sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata, hyundai sonata 2018, 2019 hyundai sonata, hyundai sonata 2019, 2016 hyundai sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata sport, 2018 sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata review, autonews, supercars,2020 Hyundai Sonata, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Colors, 2020 Hyundai Sonata For Sale, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Horsepower, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Interior, 2020 Hyundai Sonata sedan, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited, 2020 Hyundai Sonata se, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Msrp, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Price, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Release Date, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Review, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Specs, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Sport, New Hyundai Sonata 2020, new cars buy,
MARANELLO, Italy — Ferrari's special-edition V8s have a long history of delivering more than the sum of their individual parts. The 360 Challenge Stradale (2003), 430 Scuderia (2007), and 458 Speciale (2013) each leapfrogged the capabilities of their donor cars to cement their notoriety in supercar history. The latest in that lineage is the Ferrari 488 Pista, a hopped-up variant that is the most powerful road-going V8 in Ferrari history. The Pista is so quick that its lap time around the company's own private Fiorano circuit is only 1.8 seconds behind the LaFerrari.
With 49 more horsepower pushing around 198 fewer pounds, the $345,300 488 Pista looks, at least on paper, like a no-brainer for deep-pocketed speed fiends. But there are also a slew of tiny changes that alter its persona — 50 percent of the engine components are new — as well as intangible characteristics. The carbon fiber intake manifold, for instance, shaves weight but also features shorter, lower-volume intake runners for better throttle response. The turbocharger's turbines are composed of a new aluminum-titanium alloy that slashes inertia in half, trimming the powerplant's already minimal turbo lag. Titanium connecting rods aid cylinder acceleration. And new robot-welded Inconel exhaust manifolds are 10-percent wider and slightly longer, offering reduced back pressure and a throatier note. Coupled with reduced sound-deadening materials, the pipes are responsible for more engine sound reaching the cabin.
Before tackling the famed Fiorano track, I drive the 488 Pista on the street to see what 710 horsepower in a twin-turbo Ferrari feels like, and my first impressions came on thick. Sure, there's the expected interior upgrades of copious Alcantara and carbon fiber, visible aluminum floor plates, and massive carbon paddles borrowed from the 488 Challenge race car. Hold the red steering wheel-mounted engine start button with a press of the big drilled aluminum brake pedal, and the 3.9-liter V8 fires up with a noticeably more bass-heavy thrum than before, the first hint that this is an entirely different beast than the off-the-rack 488.Automotive Cars News,BMW, North American International Auto Show, Ford, Car and driver, autoshow, Car and Driver 10Best, Automobile, Auto racing,Ferrari, 488Pista, Pista, 488GTB, mid-engine, V-8, turbo, twinturbo, prototype, drive, track, Maranello, Italy, Fiorano, supercar, sports car, coupe, review,2019,supercar review, first drive, ferrari, 488 pista, driving.ca,
