  • BRABUS 900 XLP „ONE OF TEN“ - The new, limited-edition top-of-the-range model of the exclusive high-performance off-road pickup

    The new BRABUS 900 XLP “ONE OF TEN” is powered by the brawniest engine from BRABUS production: The BRABUS ROCKET 900 V8 twin-turbo, increased-displacement engine is an evolution of the G 63 engine with a displacement increase to 4.5 liters. It produces a peak output of 662 kW / 900 hp (888 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft), though the latter is capped at 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft) in the vehicle. It pushes the high-end pickup from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds. Due to the high center of gravity and the all-terrain tires mounted on custom-developed BRABUS Z/HD 22-inch forged wheels, the top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph).The vehicle pictured in the attached photos sports a ‘ROCKET Grey’ special paint finish and a black BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior with carbon adornments and elements glazed in red.

  • Walter Röhrl tests the Porsche Taycan

    This is the second encounter for rally legend Walter Röhrl and the Porsche Taycan. Shortly before climbing in, he seemed to be about as tense as the engineers assigned to monitor the test ride – but that changed very quickly. The Newsroom brings you an exclusive test drive. His first ride in the new Taycan was a few months ago. Even on just a short lap the car still left its mark, both on the development team to which he belonged at the time, and on Walter Röhrl himself: “It’s a very exciting time because technology is moving forward at an incredible rate. I’m anxious to see what the car can do compared with last time.”The black-camouflaged Taycan almost disappeared from view, just moments after the convoy left the main gate of the Porsche development centre in Weissach; the camera team’s Cayenne lost the struggle to keep pace as it immediately became clear that Walter meant business. He wanted to test the vehicle to the limit.A few kilometres later we caught up with him at a car park in the woods, where he had stopped to wait for us. The look on his face spoke volumes.

    Its predecessor - the first ever Sports Activity Coupe at the premium end of the mid-size class - broke new ground and now the all-new BMW X4 is writing the next chapter in this story of success. Its vehicle concept, which fuses the hallmark features of a BMW X model with the sporting elegance of a coupe, has also proved an instant hit in this class.

The all-new BMW X4 underscores its individual character with significantly enhanced driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car's sporting instincts, a further refined premium ambience in the interior, state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and leading-edge connectivity technologies. Added to which, the dynamic and extravagant aura of the Sports Activity Coupe is further highlighted by the addition of two BMW M Performance models to the line-up: the all-new BMW X4 M40i and all-new BMW X4 M40d. The exterior design of the all-new BMW X4 is a case study in muscular dynamics and commanding presence. Clean surfacing and high-class, modern accents headline this updated interpretation of the unmistakable X4 aesthetic. The X4 assumes the role of eye-catching athlete in the BMW X model family.

  • Head of the model line Kevin Giek explains the new Porsche Taycan

    Porsche launches the extensively updated Taycan. The new model variants offer more range as well as shorter and more robust charging processes. During an initial range test from Los Angeles to San Diego and back, pre-series models demonstrated their further improved efficiency.The all-electric sports cars covered up to 587 kilometres on one battery charge on public roads. The range test was carried out under everyday conditions. Twelve international media representatives drove four Taycan sports saloons and a Taycan Cross Turismo on three days on Interstate Highway 405 and 5 between the Southern Californian metropolises of Los Angeles and San Diego. The teams drove at the maximum speed of 75 mph permitted on interstates. This corresponds to around 120 km/h. All four test cars were equipped with the larger Performance Battery Plus.The Cross Turismo 4 with 21-inch tyres had a range of up to 512 km. The Taycan Turbo covered up to 555 km with a wheel and tyre combination of the same size. The Taycan 4S on 20-inch tyres managed up to 552 kilometres on a single battery charge. The Taycan with rear-wheel drive and 19-inch tyres managed an even more impressive 587 km. The outside temperature peaked at around 26 degrees Celsius. The highway was dry on the first two test days and very wet on the last day.The cars were charged at the Electrify America Charger in Torrance/Los Angeles. Here, the Taycan demonstrated over 300 kW charging power for many minutes and was able to charge from 10 to 80 per cent state of charge several times in well under 20 minutes. The charging performance, charging time and the time it takes to start charging were also greatly improved in this test.
