Brabus presented at the Geneva Motor Show the 800 Wildstar, an accomplishment very much on a Mercedes G-Class The recipe is the classic one manufacturer of Bottrop, who joined the star-terrain frame with the most powerful engine available in the house models, the V12 twin-turbo 6.3-liter, brought for the occasion at 800 hp.

This apparent madness has led to half that now, more suited to off road is not pure, but instead is capable of touching 100 km / h acceleration in 4 seconds with a top speed of 240 km / h. To maintain contact with the asphalt, the 800 Widestar received an adjustable sports suspension and brakes plus, but have also widened the fenders to fit 20 “wheels to 23 ” ultra low-profile tires.

After that the Cabrio is the time of the debut of the BMW 6 Series Coupe. The car has benefited from a small increase in size to be comfortable its four occupants now measure 4.894 m in length (more than 74 mm), 1.894 m in width (more than 39 mm), while the wheelbase has increased to 2.855 m And now it is 1.367 m high (less than 9mm) and has a load area with a capacity of 460 liters.

Almost goes without saying that mechanical load frame and technology are fully shared with the variant pool (although the coupe boasts a few kilo less than the total mass). At the top of the range stands at the moment the 4.4 V8 twin-turbo direct injection capable of 407 hp between 5500 and 6400 rpm and maximum torque of 600 Nm between 1750 and 4500 rpm. With “the gift of God”the “650th” accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.9 seconds and touches the 250 km / h restraint. The average consumption of 10.4 litres/100 km was declared as the average emissions of C02 amounted to 243 g / km.

The “640th”is instead equipped with the drive 6-cylinder 3.0 N55: this engine is supercharged by a twin-scroll turbocharger and direct injection with electronically controlled valve lift. The maximum power output of 320 hp is already available at 5800 rpm with maximum torque of 450 Nm between 1300 and 4500 rpm. Brilliant performance, with a 0-100 km / h in 5.4 seconds covered, a top speed of 250 km / h and an average consumption of 7.7 litres/100 km. C02 emissions are limited to 179 g / km. Both engines comply with the law Euro5 and are matched to the new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, controlled through the paddle behind the steering crown.
