“Third” coupe Bentley Continental GT and the eponymous convertible, introduced in November of 2018, came to the market late because of the long calibration portascope “robot” PDK. This delay and unexpectedly sluggish demand for the model has become one of the many reasons of the loss of Bentley.

Ultimatum is a strong word. But it’s the word Ultimatum issued in the title of the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, talking about the reaction of the majority shareholders of Volkswagen to the loss of the Bentley brand. For the first nine months of 2018, the company lost at least 137 million euros (compared to the same period in 2017) than upset the clans Porsche and Piech, owns more than half of the shares of the VW Group.

“It is important that each brand has brought a reasonable return, said Wolfgang Heinz Porsche. — Bentley now it’s not, and we are not satisfied”. Sitting next to Hans Michel Piech added: “It may be only a year or two.” The phrase was interpreted as the term that is given to Bentley “to correct”, said the publication Automotive News Europe. No “threats in case of failure” has not sounded, so that the extension of an ultimatum Maxim does not pull, but noteworthy.

Being cousins and members of the Supervisory Board of VW Group, 75-year-old Wolfgang Porsche (left) and 77-year-old Hans Piech (right) rarely give their opinion about the brands of the group. The comments came as a surprise, since dynasty many suffered in silence for years, for example, loss of brand SEAT.

Bentley chief Adrian hallmark, who is at the helm of the company since the first of February of 2018, has not played in public with a response to shareholders, but the journalists themselves have composed for him “the verdict”. Undoubtedly, the financial loss of the brand associated with the fall of the British pound against the background of a vote on leaving the EU. Many of the components that gets Bentley from Continental Europe rose sharply.

Another blow was the introduction of new ehkonorm WLTP, although the unwillingness of the Bentley brand to them still on her conscience. To the General heap of problems should also include the problematic launch of the Continental GT coupé, and probably something else. Hallmark sort of swaggers, promising by the end of 2019, the significant growth and return to profitability. Or what? Won’t the deletion of the ultimatum.

audi a5 sportback

Audi a5,Audi a5 sportback. В отличие от «а-четвёртой», обновление A5 не затронуло дверные панели. Но традиционный для середины жизненного цикла набор перемен соблюдён: бамперы, решётка радиатора и вся оптика — новые.

In contrast to the “a-fourth”, the update A5 did not affect the door panel. But traditional mid-life cycle recruitment changes observed: bumpers, grille and optics all — new.

Pyatidverka Audi A5 Sportback the current generation is available in 2016 without radical change. However, on the nose of the planned update, which should go according to the script already redrawn the family A4. Until the end of the year (probably Frankfurt in September) all secrets will be revealed, and while our forecasts.

The interior is close to this photoset in the picture not included, but we know that it can wait for “a-fourth”: there will be a new touchscreen Central display with a diagonal of 10.1 that will allow you to remove the MMI controller on the tunnel.

Large honeycomb in the grille of the test sample implying that we got a copy with the S line package. And it looks like there will not be a controversial design element: false air intake at the junction of the grille and hood, like the A4/S4. But the prototype of Sportbike there was another fake — huge trapezoidal exhaust pipes at the edges of the rear bumper, alas, purely decorative. By the way, the recent spy pictures of the facelifted S5 Coupe showed the same design of the nose of the car, only exhaust pipes she had some “honest” four kruglyashey.

Although the headlight there from a distance resembles the optics of A4, in fact, their shape is not identical. But the new running lights/turn signals in the form of a dotted line on top edge — similar to “a fourth.” The front bumper is also similar to the A4 model and still not the same as the number of elements.

Correction appearance update “a fifth” is not limited. As the pyatidverka, and coupe we’re waiting for changes in the engine lineup — in particular, adding a moderate hybrid systems based on a simple 12-volt network for the four engines and on the basis of 48-volt — V6 (for example, the April technical update S5). All the new clothes in appearance, interior and electronics will move later on the “hot” model of the Audi RS5, which we can assume a small upgrade impact (now there is a 2.9 V6 turbo engine at 450 HP and 600 N•m).
