Kia k3. Пусть вертикальные планки в «гриле» не вогнутые, всё равно возникают ассоциации с Maserati (вряд ли дизайнеры вдохновлялись Suzuki). Что ж, «тигриный нос» Петера Шрайера стремительно сдаёт позиции, и KIA снова ищет своё лицо.

Let the vertical slats in the “grill” is not concave, it is still an Association with Maserati (it is unlikely that the designers were inspired by Suzuki). Well, “tiger nose” Peter Schreier is rapidly losing ground, and KIA again looking for your face.

In mid-April at the Shanghai auto show to debut the new generation of Kia K3 sedan for the Chinese market. This cityradio significantly different from Korean namesake, our Cerato, SIDA and the American Forte, although all made from the same cloth. “Ka-third” will be available to customers from China in June, and at the same time with the standard will appear the hybrid version of the PHEV. Say a few words about it, but first want to pay attention to radiator grilles reminiscent of “the Trident” and causing issues.

A complex structure with seemingly decreasing toward the center of the cells could be a symptom of top-end performance GT Line, but no. It seems that for this Kia K3 there is a risk to gain a mouth full of autumn leaves.

According to Chinese press, length — 4660 mm (+60), width — 1780 (parity), height — 1450 (+5) wheelbase — 2700 mm (no change).

The current Kia K3 in China is equipped with aspirated 1.6 (128 HP, 156 N•m), six-speed “mechanics” and “automatic” and most expensive sedan put the 1.4 turbo engine (130 HP and 210 N•m) paired with semidiapazonnym “robot”. The next generation though will replace the naturally aspirated engine to a new 1.5 (115 HP), while the hybrid system uses 1.6 together with the electric motor (105 BHP in total). Turboservice 1.4 will continue. The production model will continue a joint venture Dongfeng Yueda Kia. The current range of prices in 96 800-133 800 yuan (933 000-1,28 million rubles) will be revised upward.

Splitter and air intakes at the “forty-fifth” (photo), oddly enough, look less aggressive than the younger model And 35. However, the Panamericana grille with vertical teeth makes clear — who is the top option.

Mercedes-AMG has pleased us with three events over the past few days. On the last weekend in the paddock “24 hours nürburgring” it showed the public a pre-production hot hatch A 45. Still painted colorful stripes car was disguised much less than previously seen samples.

The second news: the premiere of redesigned racing shell Mercedes-AMG GT3, whose sale to customer teams starting at the end of this year at a price of 399 000 euros. Externally, the newcomer easier to spot on the radiator grille: it has increased in size, and the vertical teeth are provided less frequently (them here two less than it was).

According to the publication Motor1.com A 45 will have two electronically controlled clutch that transmit traction to the rear wheels. Apparently, in their interactions and the secret announced drift mode, which is not expected from a car built on a FWD platform. The company itself about the design details of the hot hatch has not yet spoken, but very in detail told about the motor 2.0 M 139 — the most healthy in the world serial turboservice (421 HP, 500 N•m variations S and 387 HP, 480 N•m “in the database”). Premiere of the Mercedes A 45 is scheduled for July.

After road racing AMG GT has received new headlights and taillights, but more important than that the car is redesigned aerodynamic components (splitter, side wings and side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser). The promised increase in downforce.

Also at the Nurburgring, the Germans presented the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. Changes in the machine is aimed not only at improving outcomes, but also on cost reduction teams per season. Thus, the aspirated V8 6.3 now rarely need to touch (increased its survivability in race mode), and the power to redraw body parts in the bow to better protect the units in a collision, which reduces the cost of repairs after a racing incident.

In the cabin of the GT3 has a new rubberized coating on the steering wheel, improved drinking system and ventilation of the helmet.

Design optimization reduced the time required to change the settings of the splitter and anticrime that it is important for a quick pit stop. Implemented a new Drop system Start (automatic start of the engine when the “fall” of the machine with built-in pnevmomaketov). For the first time in the world, by the conviction of the company, in GT3 there was a system of automatic time recording operation of all components.

And this is a different model, civil. Curved wings kenardy installed not only on the front bumper, but even on the front fenders behind the wheels. Additional “blades” implanted in the front bumper. The machine promises to be interesting in terms of aerodynamics.

Simplified access to air filter and reduced the total number of threaded connections to facilitate the work of mechanics in the pits. Another bonus of the machine 2019: stronger luminous flux core and additional (for the 24-hour marathons) headlamps. The client team will appreciate these changes next season, but Mercedes will release a car for a few races already this year, for the final tests in “combat” environment.

Exhaust pipes changed the location but I can not vouch that this is the final version. Some footage of the tests suggest a very tightly tuned suspension.

The last while a curious rookie laps at the Nurburgring in camouflage film, where he shot paparrazi. It focused on the extreme track, but still road model named the Mercedes-AMG GT R EVO (the last two pictures in the news). She needs to be more powerful and faster than the supercar AMG GT R PRO (some commentators remember the traditional console Black Series, but insiders promise the EVO). Besides the obvious improvements of aerodynamics and other chassis characteristics to variations of EVO we should expect a growth of power biturbomotor 4.0 585 to 600-640 forces (roughly). The model will premiere or at the end of this year, or in 2020.
