We start with the world premiere of Bugatti Bolide, flanked by Chiron Pur Sport and Chiron Sport: the Bolide, in particular, is a model dedicated to the track, which concentrates the maximum of the French brand’s technology, seasoning it with a design with a racing and futuristic taste. A completely unconventional car, inspired by the Type 35 of the 1930s. Entirely made of carbon, it boasts a carbon-ceramic braking system and suspensions with push-rod front and double rear triangle layout, combined with slick tires mounted on custom-made OZ magnesium rims. We come to the engine, a W16 turbo with 8 liters of cubic capacity: it delivers 1,825 HP of maximum power and an engine torque of 1,850 Nm. The result is 500 km / h of maximum speed and, thanks to the weight contained in 1,240 kg and the extremely advanced aerodynamics. , a lateral acceleration capacity of 2.8 g at a speed of 320 km / h.
Equally impressive is the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, designed to enhance agility (it has been lightened by 50 kg compared to the “standard” model), handling and driving performance. Available in just 60 units, the Chiron Pur Sport is powered by a W16 8 biturbo engine with 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm. The adoption of a gearbox with 15% shorter ratios than its sister Chiron allows the Pur Sport to accelerate from scratch. to 100 km / h in just 2.3 seconds, for a top speed of 350 km / h.
There Sian Coupéon the other hand, it is the first Lamborghini hybrid of history: it has a total power of 819 hp and a supercapacitor instead of the canonical lithium-ion battery. It will be produced in a limited edition of 63 units, all of which have already been sold. It uses an evolved version of the 6.5-liter V12 from the Aventador SVJ, paired with a 48-volt electric motor. Alone, the internal combustion unit delivers a whopping 785 hp of power. In addition, a 34 hp electric unit has been integrated inside the gearbox. The Sián is equipped with an advanced regenerative braking system which, in fact, recovers the energy produced during braking.
More oriented to use on the track, the Lamborghini Huracàn STO, sports car inspired by racing cars, such as the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and GT3 EVO, and approved for road use. Under the hood, located behind the passenger compartment, the naturally aspirated V10 engine pulses with 640 hp of maximum power and 565 Nm of torque. It is connected to the rear traction wheels and guarantees acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 9 seconds and a top speed of 310 km / h.
It relies on 100% electric traction la Audi Q4 e-tron, the first four-ring car based on the Meb platform, common to the entire VW Group. The car is offered in versions with ranges between 306 and 520 km depending on the powetrain, batteries and traction, which is rear or integral. The Q4 e-tron, in fact, will be available in three power steps: 170, 204 and 299 HP. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h ranges from 9 seconds and drops to 6.2, with maximum (limited) speeds of 160 or 180 km / h.
Succulent previews as well for those who love two wheels, as the new one demonstrates Ducati Diavel 1260 S, maxi-naked inspired by the Diavel “Materico” concept presented in 2019 on the occasion of Milan Design Week.
