New brand GYON has promised to release nine models

Advertisement

The name on the ear is perceived as gen. The entire top management — Chinese (on the stage of chief engineer Thomas Zhang). The available money is enough to start, but not enough to implement plans, its capital-raising. The main priority of the Chinese market. International operations, including in the U.S. — part of a long-term strategy.

In Los Angeles the presentation of a new premium brand GYON, created by a Chinese company Sitech. It turned out that GYON — an acronym for Grow Your Own Niche (“grow your own” segment). Motto — Right Is Our Niche (loosely translated “our strength is in the truth”). The first electric car brand, contrary to expectations, has not been shown. Its premiere in the concept form will be held in January 2019 at the electronics show CES in Las Vegas, and the production version will appear in 2021-m. Ambitious plans and was devoted to all performances.

For their products GYON will develop two modular platforms. The battery will be “fantastic”: they are charged 100% for 15 minutes, and 10 — 80%. The reserve will be 580-600 km.

The event GYON announced the beginning of cooperation in the field of design with the Californian firm Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc. (GFMI). Like, she put her hand to the concept Maybach 6, authority her not to take and all that. (Actually GFMI — simply known in narrow circles of the contractor.) Over the next eight years GYON intends to create nine models in three segments: sedans, crossovers and SUV’s (probably talking about the SUVs). Startup alone will make the operating system G-OS, which will unite 4G connection and “intellectual technologies”. He will make the autopilot G-Pilot the third level.

The GYON firm is headed by Joe Chao (pictured), who previously headed the China office of DaimlerChrysler and built in the Beijing plant of Mercedes. The presentation of Chao invited his former boss Tom LaSorda, former President of Chrysler. “One of the biggest challenges for startups is manufacturing cars,” said 64-year-old veteran.

Among the investors of the company, if entered, the city government of Chengdu, where GYON is going to build two of its own plant, to ultimately reach a production capacity of 400,000 cars a year. While plants there, the startup will be able to use the power of your partner, FAW group. It is expected that the first model will cost from 100,000 to 200,000 yuan ($975 thousand rubles, a premium after all). The electric car will be able to recognize speech, faces, fingerprints, and gestures, plus will be “a new way of interaction.” Innovative air filtration system removes 99.7% of harmful particles from the salon. Director Joe Chao believes that GYON late comes into play: “Now is the ideal time to start, because we learned a lot from the experience of others.”

audi r8 plus competition

Audi r8,Audi r8 plus competition. Все образцы будут окрашены в цвет Suzuka Gray. По краям бампера — антикрылышки (канарды), подсмотренные у гоночных версий. В остальном оформление носа — обычное, только добавлен «чёрный» дизайн-пакет: глянцевые окантовки решётки радиатора, воздухозаборников спереди и вентиляционных окон сзади.

All samples will be painted in the color Suzuka Gray. The edges of the bumper — anticrisis (kenardy), all borrowed from the racing versions. Otherwise, registration of the nose is common, only added the “black” design pack: glossy edging of the grille, air intakes, front and rear ventilation Windows.

In November ten Americans will be able to buy limited edition Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package. This is the coupe edition based on the R8 V10 plus especially for US. The car received a complete package of performance parts from Audi Sport. Version Competition not more powerful “plus”, but has more downforce and a little bit easier.

Version Competition by default put black racing seats-buckets with red stitching, full leather trim including door cards, steering wheel in Alcantara with the zero mark, 550-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers, shift paddles of carbon fiber.

Aerodynamics and should, first of all to give this version more speed on circular tracks with a large number of turns. Only 150 km/h the downforce is there, more than double the original model (now equivalent to 52 kg), and at 315 km/h grows up to 250 kg, a hundred higher than the serial “a plus”. Payback — increased drag. Because the maximum speed there is only 315 km/h instead of 330. Acceleration is not specified, and the common V10 plus — 3,2 with up to hundreds. There are about the same.

In carbon for aerodynamic kit also includes a large splitter, expanders sills, a fixed rear wing on the pylons with the inverted fastening, flaps at the corners of the rear bumper and diffuser with developed longitudinal ribs. Tires — Pirelli P Zero.

Decoration model — matte black, fully machined 20-inch wheels, the same wheels racing version of the R8 GT4 (that, however, the diameter is 18). They saved the compartment 12 kg curb weight. Another quart engineers have dropped, putting the titanium base plate carbon fiber brake pads. Other features: dynamic steering, adjustable three parameters suspension type coilover.

The 5.2 V10 engine (610 HP and 560 N•m) has not changed. By the way, under the curtain of the life of the first generation R8 she is also a Competition specifically for US, and there was “only” 578 “horses”. However, it’s more than not just a simple “er-eighth”, but modification of the GT.

Dealers of Audi in the U.S. model R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition will be in November. Valued this car at $237 350 (at current exchange rate from 15.58 million), plus another $2550 should pay for shipping and taxes. For comparison, the serial R8 V10 plus costs in America $194 400. We will add that in the next few months the entire family awaits the Audi R8 update, which will affect the appearance (slightly) and on the technique. Atmospheric dozen should slightly improve in power, and as never before, the initial versions will be forced V6 unit 2.9. However, official information about such a radical step no.

In a new series of machine frame appeared with minimal camouflage, while the last time was pasted over everything.

Buyers in the United States, with a particular interest in looking at new spy shots of the sedan Mercedes-AMG A 35. The fact that A 35 hatchback to the American market will not reach, but the four-door sibling will be sold. In Russia a simple sedan A-class will appear for sure, and no “heated” it will not be. So, look to the frames.

On the roof of A hatch 35 engineers hoisted a full wing, but smooth aft of the saloon to spoil the “bench” the Germans did not, limiting the spoiler, although not-so-little. This is not the case, not counting the body type of course.

Supercharged “four” M 260 with a return of 306 HP and 400 N•m, combined with a seven-step “robot” AMG SpeedShift DCT and all-wheel drive 4Matic, accelerates the hatchback A 35 to a hundred in 4.7 s. We do not think that the sedan will show a difference of at least a tenth of a second. As of piatigorski, there must be added to the amplifiers stiffness of the body, an electronically shock absorbers, AMG Ride Control, an enhanced switching of the driving modes and settings of the stabilization system.

Exhaust pipes and diffuser — same as “warmed-up” hatchback.

The front especially has nothing to hide. The same mesh in the grille, the same two horizontal straps as the hatch. But in the corners of the bumper are not set kenardy (small spoiler). It seems that in terms of aerodynamics of the sedan, A 35 would be less “evil” than similar pyatidverka.

Given the importance to the overseas market, we can assume the premiere of the sedan, A 35 or in November in Los Angeles, or in January in Detroit. In the first half of 2019, the model will arrive on the market. If someone would think it “small” will need to wait for the family of “lighters” with the index 45. There are at least preparing the hatchback A-class, the crossover GLA and liftback CLA. Sedan A-class in this version, the company also likely will be built. “Forty-five” under the hood will be installed again “two liters”, but with hybrid additions (including waiting for electric compressor), while the capacity will reach 400-410 HP

Tiggo 5x has entered the Chinese market last fall, and almost immediately the Russian office Chery announced the intention to sell this model in our country under the name Tiggo 4. A year has passed, but the promised novelty in the salons of the Russian dealers did not appear, and this week it became known that Tiggo 5x endured early restyling. The fact that the original is very peculiar appearance of the SUV to the Chinese consumer is not liked, therefore it was sold sluggishly: from January to August this year, 608 sold 40 copies. For comparison, proportionate Baojun 510 (whose appearance, by the way, is also, frankly, for an Amateur) in the same period, found 250 507 buyers.
