03 Cyan officially considered a concept because this is not a normal sedan, and unfinished road version of the combat vehicles for the FIA WTCR. Small-scale version in the same specification appears, but the release is limited to the instances for the selected clients.

Racing team Racing Cyan (former Polestar Racing) has announced two new record on the Nurburgring set “at design time” concept Lynk & Co 03 Cyan. Sedan, equipped with turboservice 2.0 (535 HP, 504 N•m) and six-speed sequentially, drove the “short” Nordschleife (20,6 km) in 7:15.123, and “long” (20,8 km) spent 7:20.143. In the first case, beaten Jaguar XE SV Project 8 with figure 7:18.361 in the second confounded hot hatch Renault Megane RS Trophy-R (7:45.389). The idea is that Lynk & Co 03 Cyan becomes among the fastest production chetyrehdverny and peredneprivodnogo, but its seriality raises questions. It is unclear whether the achievement counted.

“This is also the first case where a Chinese manufacturer has set a record on the legendary German track on the basis of the mass of cars”, — says Cyan Racing. Average speed was 170,4 km/h. Video full circle the link.

Behind the wheel of the sedan was a Swedish racing driver thed björk, champion WTCC 2017. “We have made the record I appreciate no less than their titles,” admitted the pilot. Sedan, shod in tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 (285/30 R20). To hundred it is dispersed for 4.4 seconds to 200 km/h in 10 s, maximum speed — 310 km/h.

“Our primary goal at the nürburgring is development. We have set records testify to the possibilities and potential of the platform Lynk & Co, about the success of our engineering philosophy, developed more than two decades in motorsports and in the preparation of road cars,” — said Henrik Friis, head of research Cyan Racing. “Development” will continue until the end of the year, and then will start the winter testing in Northern Sweden.

The chief of the British office of Honda Dave Hodgetts told Automotive News that the new hatch is “very different” from the present: “the Jazz will receive design elements from the Honda electric vehicle e, as the company tries to attract to the car a young audience”.

To electrify all models for the European market by 2025, Honda pursues a strategy of Electric Vision. About the stages of the Japanese are told in the framework of the Frankfurt auto show. The first step was the launch of a hybrid version CR-V, the second serial electric car Honda e, and the third will be made at the Tokyo exhibition, which opens to the public on October 24. There debut hatchback Jazz/Fit fourth generation. The expected expansion of the engine range will not happen. On the contrary, the installation of hybrid i-MMD will be in Europe uncontested.

In Germany, the Jazz now have two petrol atmosfernika: 1.3 (102 HP, 123 N•m) and 1.5 (130 HP, 155 N•m), with a six-speed “mechanics” and CVT. Price range — from 17 to 20 290 690 euros. According to JATO Dynamics, European sales in the first half of the year fell by 20% (to 17 140 pieces).

There is no doubt that with the hybrid system “in the” Jazz is significantly more expensive. New design models, no matter how spectacular he may be, is unlikely to compensate for the price jump. Moreover, in 2020, the arena will be fourth Toyota Yaris, whose predecessor has a hybrid version, which accounts for almost half of sales. But way back at Honda no, because without total electrification it will not meet the regulations on emissions of CO2.

Porsche cayman,Porsche cayman gt4,Porsche cayman gt4 rs. Одно из внешних изменений на прототипе: жабры на месте заднего бокового окна. Вероятно, поставляющие больше воздуха в мотор. Смотрятся кустарно, но в серии могут быть оформлены аккуратнее.

One of the external changes on the prototype: the gills on the rear side Windows. Likely supplying more air into the motor. Look homemade, but in a series may be issued accurately.

In the line of Caymans now with a quick option — 718 Porsche Cayman GT4 (6 897 000). It is equipped with the atmospheric “six” 4.0 (420 HP, 420 N•m) and six-speed “mechanics” (without alternatives), gaining a hundred in 4.4 seconds and develops 304 km/h. the Car is dangerously close to the senior rank of “nine hundred eleventh” as in price and ability. For example, 718 Cayman GT4 is the Northern loop in 7:30 (by the way, two seconds faster than the Porsche 911 GT2 997 sample 2007). While the modern coupé 911 Carrera S 992 are achievable as of 7:25. And soon the gap may disappear: on the tests seen model Cayman GT4 RS.

New, raised higher, the wing — perhaps the primary external acquisition of Cayman GT4 RS. Linings conceal the support that should eventually look more elegant. Like the racing models 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

The most intriguing point in this story: will give the company “erase” “robot” instead of “mechanics” to “just” GT4. All models of the brand with the letters RS to maximize the focus on the track and here really good results can only be obtained for two pedal drive versions. Of course, the addition of the letters RS will result in a further reconfiguration of the chassis, and probably some force of the engine.

The NACA air inlets on the hood is another noticeable difference of the prototype, now driving along the Northern loop, from the usual Cayman GT4.

There are, of course, the chance that the company will create a crash and lightweight variation of the Caiman again with the “mechanics” (for such it is possible to return to everyday life almost forgotten the name of the Cayman R), but observers in the North loop of the claim that discussing the prototype while switching sounds exactly like a machine with a rapid-fire “robot”. We will add that in the range of Caiman (and also related to the Boxster) is expected to have a version of Touring with the same “six” 4.0, as in GT4, just derated.

The authors of the models confirmed that will produce a race of “zero-zero-seven” for their own factory team and sales to other private teams, and even produced a limited edition road versions of this hypercar.

It took half a century since then, as Ford GT40 last time won in the overall classification “24 hours of Le Mans”. Since then, American automakers didn’t succeed (though there is a subtlety: the winner of 1969, a variant of the MkI was designed and built in Britain). To return to those glorious days going company Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, prepared for the new regulations of Le Mans and the WEC championship hypercar SCG 007. The Americans were posted only a teaser, and now released a full image of the car.

Founder and CEO at SCG James Glikenhaus never revealed the secret, what does the rear of the machine in the style of the concepts , the Alfa Romeo BATand the rims, typical of sports cars of this brand. We wouldn’t be surprised official cooperation with alpha.

SCG 007 coupe will perform in the new class Hypercars, which will replace LMP1 that will into effect starting with the 2020/2021 season WEC. Developers told that the motion of SCG 007 should bring the V6 3.0 engine with two turbochargers. Its origin is not defined. The company had previously mentioned and front electric motors. Regulations Hypercars allows the machine to be a hybrid with electric motors at the front, complementing the engine behind the cockpit.

That renders the company able to turn into a real car show model SCG 003 (its the racing version of the c 2015 participates in the VLN series and nürburgring 24 hour race) or submitted a month ago buggy SCG Boot.

Model SCG 007 turns and modern, and at the same time with references to racing masterpieces of the 1960s. for Example, in front of the SCG 007 is something of a Ferrari 330P4.

In the new top class of Le Mans formed a motley company. In addition to SCG 007, there will be fighting hypercar Aston Martin Valkyrie and Toyota GR Super Sport. In addition, there will be the famous Swiss “stable” Rebellion Racing (LMP1 in she has sportprototip Rebellion R13, built by the French firm Oreca, theoretically it can be recycled under the new rules). More on his part said the German-Austrian team ByKolles Racing, cooking something on the basis of a prototype ENSO CLM. In addition, the interest in the new class said the companies Lamborghini and Koenigsegg.
