The German high-performance tuning company introduced its new product, Brabus 600. It is a new masterpiece from the workshop of the German tuner based on the luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S580 4Matic.
The Brabus 600 received a subtle body kit consisting of components made of carbon fiber with a glossy or matte finish, such as a front lip spoiler that reduces the lift of the front axle and better air flow to the front brakes and radiator, a rear diffuser with large cutouts for the ends of the sports exhaust pipe system. There are also a lot of dark chrome elements that complete not only the visual appearance but also the functionality. The car is equipped with an adjustable suspension that allows height adjustment of up to 20 millimeters via the BRABUS SportXtra
Inside, the seats are upholstered in Turquoise Blue leather that covers the entire interior of the car, combined with many carbon accents. Leather covers the floor mats as well as the steering wheel.
When it comes to the powertrain, the Brabus 600 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine with 600 hp (441 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. The engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted automatically or manually. It reaches 62 mph in 4.5 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). It is mounted on 22-inch Monoblock M “Platinum Edition” forged wheels.
The new Nissan Z GT4 has arrived on the market. The racing car was created in cooperation between two Japanese companies, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and NMC, and is based on the Nissan Z model.
The Nissan Z is powered by a VR30DDTT 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine with 400 hp (294 kW) and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque, and the same engine is expected to power the new race car. Although there is not enough information so far, it is known that Nissan tuned the engine, optimized the chassis and suspension and improved the aerodynamics according to the regulations of the GT4 category. Nissan says the Z GT4 race car is “affordable to enthusiasts and top professionals”.
“Motorsports for Nissan is an expression of our passion and unrivaled expertise. The Nissan Z continues to maintain its position as an exciting sports car that fascinates drivers with its driving dynamics and flexible powertrain. We are confident that this track-ready GT4-category Nissan Z will be ready to write another chapter in the Nissan Z’s 50-plus-year legacy of speed,” Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta said at the unveiling.
Specifications will be announced at the SEMA show in the US in November this year, and deliveries are expected in the first half of 2023.
After several major car manufacturers changed their logos, Citroën did the same. The design of the new identity recalls the beginnings, when Andre Citroen adopted the original logo design 103 years ago.
The new logo in different versions will be used on all future cars from the middle of next year. It’s first appearance will be on a car that the French company calls a “significant concept family vehicle.” Citroen is currently working on a redesign to make the logo more visible.
The designers found inspiration for the new logo in the 2CV and DS models, while the Monte Carlo blue color represents the brand’s identity. The logo has a vertical oval frame with two arrows (deux chevrons). The chrome finish is gone, and the logo will be used for showrooms, corporate buildings and various products. Citroen director Vincent Covee said the new logo was “an elegant symbol of progress”.
Along with the new logo, Citroen also presented a new slogan: “Nothing Moves Us Like Citroen”. In a way, this points to Citroen’s electric future, as Stellantis previously announced a plan that all models launched from 2026 in Europe will be pure-electric.
