Mercedes-AMG SL63 with 850 HP

After last month’s Gronos Coupé EVO C based on the Mercedes G-Class, this time German tuner Mansory has upgraded the Mercedes-AMG SL63.

The car is finished in black and equipped with a special equipment kit that includes a redesigned bumper with copper details, new air intakes, carbon front spoiler, carbon side mirrors, rear spoiler, diffuser, bumper parts also made of carbon, and copper details. There is also a set of 22 inch wheels available in different designs.

Inside, there were no major changes. The seats are upholstered in white leather, while the door panels and dashboard are covered in a combination of white and black leather with contrasting black or white stitching.

The standard Mercedes-AMG SL63 is powered by a 4.0L V8 biturbo engine with 577 hp (424 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. However, the tuner has prepared two performance packages: P720 and P850. In the first option, the power was increased to 720 hp (529 kW). which is far more than the factory version. The most powerful option in the range is the option with 850 hp (625 kW), which is enough to push the car to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 206 mph (332 km/h).

2023 Ferrari Roma Spider

After presenting a special edition Ferrari Roma for the Chinese market at the beginning of the year, last week the Italian car manufacturer unveiled a new version of this model, the Ferrari Roma Spider.

The Roma Spider is a little heavier than the Coupé version, but that doesn’t stop the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 620 hp (456 kW) at 7,500 rpm and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque at 3,000 to 5,750 rpm, propels the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds, equal to the Coupé’s result. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Fans of Ferrari’s Coupe editions are delighted with the Maranello-based company’s decision, according to which the hard folding roof concept has been replaced this time with a traditional canvas multi-layer roof that lowers/raises in 13.5 seconds at the touch of a button (at a speed of up to 60 km/h).

With this car, Ferrari will continue the story that began with the California and Portofino models. The price has not yet been announced.

Volkswagen announces 10 new cheap electric models

A few days ago, Volkswagen announced long-term plans that include the production of 10 all-electric cars for customers on a tighter budget.

According to VW, it will be a compact electric car available to everyone, something like the VW Golf, which is still a popular car. It is said to be built on the new MEB Small platform for electric cars. The same Volkswagen Group platform will be used by models such as the Cupra Urban Rebel.

“With the ID.2all concept in the compact car segment, Volkswagen announces the first electric VW for everyone. The starting price will be lower than 25,000 euros. Electric cars will then be available in almost every segment, and the Volkswagen brand will offer a broader e-portfolio in comparison with the competition, from the basic electric vehicle to the ID.7 electric sedan,” announced Volkswagen.

VW plans to invest 460 million euros in its Wolfsburg plant to prepare for the realization of its plan, which includes the second generation of the ID.3 model, the ID.3 GTX, the Buzz model with a longer wheelbase and the flagship electric sedan ID.7.

When it comes to other brands from the VW group, the Cupra is planned for 2025, a new fully electric car with 235 hp (173 kW) and a range of 440 km. It will hit 62 mph in 6.9 seconds.
