2011 New Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

Those eagerly looking forward to our next hybrid family sedan comparison have to wait just a bit longer this Hyundai Sonata Hybrid we recently tested is a pre-production model. 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Side Click to view Gallery Acceleration is far from Final combined performance figures are 206 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque. As you'd expect from a hybrid, the Atkinson-cycle variant from Hyundai's Theta II family has been optimized for maximum efficiency. Because the motor is synced directly to the transmission, a clutch latches to and unlatches from the gasoline-fed 2.4-liter inline-four with 166 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque on tap (also revised slightly from earlier in the year).

In its place is the keystone of this hybrid's operation: an electric traction motor rated at 40 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. But the Sonata Hybrid's six-speed automatic is missing one key ingredient: a torque converter. Hyundai's Direct Hybrid Blue Drive system earns its keep as a full parallel setup with an actual step-ratio automatic transmission, a departure from the continuously variable transmissions common in most hybrids. 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Rear Three Quarters Click to view Gallery Improved fuel economy obviously doesn't materialize out of thin air.

Vacationing families and business road warriors will enjoy blowing past all those gas pumps. Given the Sonata Hybrid's 17.2-gallon tank, you could theoretically roll more than 680 highway miles between fill-ups. Then there's range. Against the likes of the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Toyota Camry Hybrid, the highway number is right at the top of the class. To start, Hyundai slightly revised its estimated fuel economy numbers for the Sonata Hybrid to 36/40 city/highway mpg down 1 city and up 1 highway.

The lighter batteries, Hyundai deals with that issue by using lightweight lithium polymer batteries. Lithium Polymer Batteries and Lighter Weight Hybrid critics have complained that the need to tote heavy batteries means one step forward and two steps back. The hatchback Toyota Prius, with its combined 50-mpg rating, is still way ahead of the pack on both highway and city efficiency numbers but shoppers are more likely to put the Sonata Hybrid in the larger mid-size sedan (with trunk) category along with the Camry and Fusion. The approach also results in a total combined output of the engine and motor of 209 horsepower beating out the Camry Hybrid (187 hp) and the Ford Fusion Hybrid (191 hp).

We think this is a better balanced approach for the majority of car buyers. The full hybrid architecture allows the vehicle to operate on an electric motor only, a gasoline internal combustion engine only, or a combination of the two depending on driving conditions and driver demands. Hyundai Sonata “Unlike traditional [power-split] hybrids that trade off highway fuel economy for higher city ratings, the Sonata Hybrid delivers best-in-class highway fuel economy, while still delivering about a 40 percent improvement in city fuel economy compared to a Sonata equipped with the Theta II GDI engine, said Krafcik. It means that Hyundai is trying to address the common complaint that hybrids provide great mileage for city driving conditions, but not so much for highway driving. What’s the difference? Instead Hyundai is using its new six-speed automatic transmission with an electric motor that takes the place of the torque converter.

Unlike hybrid systems from Ford and Toyota, the Hyundai system does not use a continuously variable transmission with integrated electric motors and generators.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 2011

Its full parallel hybrid configuration and breakthrough lithium polymer batteries offer a new take on traditional hybrid design, while its unique design sets it apart from the mid-size hybrid pack. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is the new kid on the block, but it's not a follower, said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. Moreover, Hyundai went its own direction on technology by developing an original proprietary hybrid architecture to reduce weight and to improve highway fuel economy. While the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid does not look exactly like its conventional sibling more about that in a moment—Hyundai decided not to copy the unique aero look of the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight. The company is taking direct aim at the Toyota Camry Hybrid (33/34) and Ford Fusion Hybrid (41/36), the two most popular regular-looking mid-size hybrid sedans.

Hyundai expects the Sonata Hybrid to achieve 37 miles per gallon in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. While we’re still lacking perhaps the most critical piece of information, it appears that Hyundai has produced a mainstream mid-size hybrid sedan that provides real competition for class-leading fuel economy. Apparently, Hyundai took its time, scrutinized the hybrid competition, and attempted to outdo it in every respect. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, expected to hit dealerships later this year, is the South Korean company’s first hybrid in the US market.

2011 The Best Mini Paceman Concept

The new rear lights stretch around the corners of the car to rest atop The front end features the traditional family face, but there's been a departure from the norm at the back. Ignore the concept car frippery, and you'll see that the Paceman drops a few hints towards Mini's future design direction. Well if you have, the Mini Paceman could be the car for you. Have you ever fancied brown leather-clad door handles and a fuel filler cap with a piece of cow hide dangling off it?

The Mini Paceman Concept looks normal on the inside, but what about the outside? The design sketches show a typical Mini interior, albeit with champagne glasses mounted on the Mini Cenre Rail, and a removable front passenger seat that enables a rear passenger to stretch their legs. The Paceman Concept gets a permanent all-wheel drive system, with an electromagnetic centre differential to send 100% of the power to the rear wheels in extreme circumstances. A John Cooper Works-spec 1.6-litre turbocharged engine provides the Paceman Concept with 208bhp and 192lb ft, with an overboost function bumping torque up to 207lb ft. The four seater Paceman is based on the Countryman, but it's 20mm lower and 13mm longer the Paceman is 4110mm long, 1789mm wide and 1541mm high, while the Countryman measures 4097/1789/1561mm.

What’s going on under the skin? The Mini Paceman Concept looks rather big and bulky for a coupe. And as CAR revealed way back in April 2009, a second sportier version of Mini's biggest model is on the way: the Paceman will almost certainly reach production. Mini calls it a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC), but really it’s just a two-door Countryman. These are the first official pictures of Mini’s not-so-mini Paceman Concept.

2011 New Mini Paceman Concept

For more on the Paceman--and MINI's upcoming Coupe and Roadster-stay tuned for High Gear Media's wall-to-wall coverage of the Detroit Auto Show. MINI says the Paceman hasn't been green-lighted for production, but its aggressive plans to flesh out its lineup could include the Paceman on an assembly line in Graz, Austria, alongside the Countryman and the BMW X1. Electric power steering and independent suspension-some of our favorite pieces on the 2011 MINI Cooper S Countryman--have been carried over to the concept as well.

MINI's all-wheel drive system fits an electromagnetic differential to split power front to rear. Tucked beneath the hood is the MINI John Cooper Works engine, a 1.6-liter turbocharged four with 211 horsepower and 192 pound-feet with an overboost function that briefly lifts torque to 207 lb-ft. The Paceman's dimensions are an overall length of 161.8 inches, 70.4 inches wide, and 60.7 inches wide. The concept has a center-rail console like the one found in the four-door crossover, and accompanying bucket seats, while restyled interior door and trim panels use ovals to lend an impression of more interior space.

The details of the cabin haven't been revealed in photos, but the sketches released today show a close link to today's Countryman.

2011 MINI Paceman Concept

On the rear, the Paceman has more of a horizontal design theme, with a lower, smaller glass area and taillamps turned 90 degrees from their vertical installation in the Countryman. Big 19-inch wheels are fitted, suggesting an uptick in performance for the two-door edition. Behind the front clip, the Paceman chops and channels its way into coupe-dom with a shorter, more sloping roofline that still carries over the notched Countryman roofline. Calling the new design study a "crossover coupe," MINI says the Paceman starts identically to the Countryman up front, where it shares a grille with the higher-powered Cooper S Countryman.

The Paceman concept will make its world debut at the 2011 Detroit auto show on January 10. The 2011 MINI Countryman is the first four-door in the British brand's lineup but a new two-door version could be in the works, if the MINI Paceman concept is any indication.

The Best Kia Optima Hybrid 2011

This also allows for other Offering several advantages, this modular layout includes more efficient powertrain packaging, use of many "off the-shelf" components such as the existing six-speed automatic transmission found on the 2.4-liter GDI Optima, and reduced engineering investment. Compared to the power-split hybrid systems found on vehicles from Toyota or Ford, the Kia Optima Hybrid uses a Transmission Mounted Electric-Drive (TMED) layout with the electric motor separated from the transmission gear-set. Unique Hybrid Architecture Unlike most current systems on the market, the Kia Optima Hybrid powertrain is configured with a unique architecture.

Lithium polymer also has less of the self-discharge characteristic found in most rechargeable batteries. With that improved efficiency, more of the recovered kinetic energy and charging energy from the engine is available to move the car as necessary, which allows the vehicle to provide electric driving assist more often and for a longer period. Both fuel consumption and emissions are cut, allowing more electric starts and drive-aways. The Kia Optima Hybrid's battery will hold its charge up to 25 percent longer than hybrids with nickel metal hydride batteries, so the battery is more likely to have usable energy available even if it has not been in use.

The power and energy density of this new battery type allowed Kia engineers to create a lighter and more compact battery pack, with the 30 kilowatt battery pack weighing just 95.9 pounds - 28 pounds less than the 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid's nickel metal hydride pack - which aids fuel economy and also helps to maximize Optima's cargo space. Durable Lithium Polymer Battery The 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid's outstanding efficiency is due in large part to the use of a lithium polymer battery, which was developed in South Korea with partner LG Chem.

The world is always on the move. The Peugeot BB1 Concept car is the promise of a new driving experience. At the forefront are the values of liberty, optimism even "altruism". Capable of seating four people in a vehicle just 2.5 metres long, the Peugeot BB1 Concept car is a full electric vehicle that reinvents the automobile in every way: architecture, style, interior design, drive, connectivity - while all the time respecting the environment.

With the Peugeot BB1 Concept car, Peugeot has fearlessly pushed back the conventions and boundaries of automobile manufacturing to bring a totally original response to the current and future needs of urban mobility.

New Peugeot BB1 Concept 2011

The price is roughly estimated to be half the price of the Mitsubishi based Peugeot Ion, at It has a weight of 550kg due to its carbonfiber body. Clearly, Peugeot's motorbike division has played a key role in the concept's development, its tubular steel understructure similar to a motorbike's. He also described the BB1 as near to qualifying as a quadricycle, and said that it will need a new homologation classification.

A Peugeot spokesman described the project as very serious, possibly hinting at production. However, this can still improve. Currently, top speed is 56mph and range is 75 miles from its under seat lithium ion batteries. Designer Yann Pissonier, who has driven the prototype, describes BB1's acceleration as 'vivacious'.

Each motor develops 20bhp peak power, but more significantly, 236lb ft at each wheel. Propelling the BB1 car are two rear-mounted in wheel electric motors co developed with tiremaker Michelin, which has been working on this technology for some years. The driver steers using a pair of handlebars, which rotates through 40 degrees each way for a very compact seven meter turning circle. The riders also adopt the posture of bike riders, their seats providing no more than vestigial backrests, this packaging being the key to the Peugeot's provision of four seats. Similar to how riders sit at a motorbike, the four adults sit tandem fashion, with the rear seat occupants' legs wrapping around the torso of the front passengers.

Boasting to have an electric range of 75 miles, the BB1 electric car has two doors and four seats and is 2.5 meters long. Peugeot was aiming for a versatile, compact and maneuverable vehicle when it set in motion its plans to create the BB1 electric concept car, which has been unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show.

The Best BMW 1-Series Coupe 2011

Carmagazine talks It will be positioned between the regular 135i Coupe and the M3. The SuperSport model will be a performance addition to the 1er family, resulting in the use of lightweight materials, such as a Carbon Fibre Roof and bootlid , loss of certain cabin comforts , upgraded suspension and brakes , lightweight glass. The front-grille will go through a major redesign where the twin kidneys will be positioned upside down. The 135i Supersport will have an extravagant, unique design, newly designed headlights with front-end elements imported from the Rolls-Royce models as well.

The car will still be built inside the “Motorsports labs”. They go on by mentioned the BMW 135i Supersport, the new 1 Series Coupe that will be released in 2012, an M1 type of car but without the Motorsport badge on it. Well, today, Carmagazine UK runs a story on the 2011 BMW 1 Series and other bimmer models. Our source say that he has a close relationship with BMW and most of the time, he sees the car sketches before many other people. 2011 BMW 1 Series rendering At the same time, I said that in the past, Huckfeldt, the famous rendering artist from AutoBild, has been right about many BMW models. It was one of our most controversial articles in 2009 and not many of you believed in what we said: yes, the next 1 Series will look somewhat along these lines and it will be one of the most revolutionary BMW designs, a risky design as some may call it. We have been saying this for a while and even showed you some rather odd renderings of what the next generation 2011 BMW 1 Series might look like.

New BMW 1-Series Coupe 2011

All 128i models will retain the The new gearbox will cost $200 more than the $1375 optional automatic, but it should make the coupe and convertible even quicker. Both 135i body styles are dropping their conventional six-speed automatic in favor of BMW’s new seven-speed dual-clutch DCT automated manual transmission. The 2010 135i ragtop returns the same city mileage but ekes out an extra mpg on the highway.

We’ve yet to see any fuel-economy numbers for the 2011 135i models, but the current coupe is rated at 17 mpg city and 25 highway. The engine replaces the old N54 3.0-liter twin-turbo six, and BMW claims it offers both greater efficiency and reduced emissions while delivering the same 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. The biggest news for the 1-series concerns its mechanicals: Like the 2011 X6 xDrive35i and 335i, the 135i coupe and convertible will get BMW’s new N55 3.0-liter single-turbo inline-six. Changes Under the Surface OK, perhaps we’re harping on the leather thing too much.

It’s true, all 2011 1-series models can be fitted with the totally gratis Value package previously offered on the 2009 5-series and 328i/xi—which not only adds cowhide seat coverings, but iPod integration, too. And so we welcome this minor bit of news: buyers of the BMW 1-series now will be able to opt for leather seats at no charge. Well, we hate the rude ones.) Nowadays, extended leather packages can be selected to cover the dashboard, infotainment controllers, and more, and Porsche buyers can even get their vent slats covered in the stuff.

Mechanically, the Latigo is essentially the same as the M6 up which it is based, but Fisker managed to cut out some excess weight and enlisted the services of tuning house RDSport to tune the high-revving 5.0-liter V10 engine up to 648 horsepower.

Only 150 examples of each were made, and one of the latter a post revision 2008 model has now popped up for grabs on eBay. The California-based operation had two products: the Mercedes SL based Tramonto and this, the BMW M6-based Latigo CS. Before kicking off his ambitious luxury hybrid project and after having penned such gorgeous sportscars as the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and BMW Z8 roadster, the noted Danish designer Henrik Fisker started his own coachbuilding operation. If your answer to any of these questions was an emphatic "yes," then you may want to have a look at this eBay Motors listing. Has Fisker caught your attention with the Karma, but not so much for its hybrid drivetrain?

Are you looking for something a little more exclusive? Can you not wait for the next generation model? Are you not a fan of the current BMW 6 Series?

New Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland UK Version 2011

All are available with rear-wheel drive or different versions of Jeep's all wheel drive systems, as well as V6 or There are three versions of the Grand Cherokee: Laredo, Limited and Overland. Standard equipment includes 20-inch wheels; the 18-inchers are more suited to off road duty. To make your Grand Cherokee "trail rated," you simply check the box for the adventure package, a $1,000 option that includes off-road tires on 18-inch wheels, underbody skid plates, tow hooks and a full service spare wheel and tire.

It is available both as a crossover that likely is more capable in adverse conditions than most competitors, with unit body construction and all wheel drive, and as an all out "trail rated" sport utility vehicle that can handle just about any terrain accessible to motor vehicles. That approach now also is carried over to the flagship Grand Cherokee. The latter now fit into the burgeoning crossover strain, characterized by all weather all wheel drive but modest capabilities away from the pavement. What remains is a bifurcated lineup, with "trail rated" models fully capable of legendary Jeep off road prowess, and the remainder less so.

It was an acknowledgement that not everybody needed boulder crawling capabilities but still wanted four wheel drive and, perhaps, the cachet of owning a Jeep. But in recent years, to broaden its appeal, Jeep removed muscle from some of its models. Ever since its debut in World War II, Jeep has nurtured its reputation as the planet's popular priced go anywhere conveyance. So the Grand Cherokee might better be described as a mixed breed that was as programmed as a test tube baby.

But a mutant, by definition, is unplanned. If the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee were organic, it would be a mutant, part crossover and part sport utility vehicle.

2011 Interior Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

But despite the lowered highway height, the V8 is Even with its near-5,000 pound weight, the Grand Cherokee Overland model had plenty of punch off the line. It also automatically lowers the ride height slightly at highway speeds for better fuel economy. In the boondocks it can increase the ground clearance to nearly 11 inches.

It automatically levels the Grand Cherokee at all four corners and can be manually adjusted to raise and lower the ride height by as much as 4.1 inches. Also part of the package is an air suspension system, which Jeep calls Quadra Lift. Surprisingly, the sport mode also delivers a supple ride, not creamy by any definition but comfortable enough for all-day cruising on rutted roads. The last is performance oriented for on road driving; it tightens the suspension system and recalibrates shift points for a sporting rear drive handling feel.

Included in the Quadra Drive all wheel drive system is Jeep's Selec Terrain system, which enables the driver to choose among five modes for different conditions: automatic, mud/sand, rock, snow and sport. It is linked to a five speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode, which works well enough but gives up bragging rights to competitors, most of which now have six-speed automatics. The V8 engine is the famed "hemi," pioneered by Chrysler Corp., but the name no longer is used on Jeeps; it is reserved for Dodge and Chrysler models. Before World War I it became one of the country's biggest car companies and later was one of the manufacturers that built Jeeps in World War II.

The company started building cars in 1903 and later was taken over by Willys to form Willys Overland. The Overland model designation resurrects a famous name from the past.

The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Torsional rigidity has been increased 146%. Variablerate rear springs improve on oad handling and comfort, and the spare tire is stored inside as opposed to underneath. [Allpar was first to report this.] The independent front and rear suspensions have isolated cradles.

It would "have to be a completely different application," but would still be an SUV. The Dodge Durango is an extended-wheelbase version; and, during a Novmeber 8 call, Sergio Marchionne said that the architecture would probably be adapted by Alfa or Maserati. Thanks to the Hemi option, the V6 has a large engine bay, with around five inches in front of the serpentine belt. The Hemi is optional across the board, and Europeans have a new VM Motori 3-liter V6 diesel; all use the W5A580 five-speed transmission. The standard engine is the 290 horsepower Pentastar V6, which gets just 1 mile per gallon less than the diesel powered Mercedes ML350, and is smoother than competitors’ engines.

Desing GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept 2011

The capability enhancing attributes of the Sierra All Terrain HD build on the already outstanding capabilities offered in the all new production Sierra HD trucks, said Lisa The concept’s running gear makes good use of the Sierra’s overhauled boxed ladder frame, shocks, springs and axles that were introduced for the 2011 model year. Suspension As with all off road pickups, the heart of the All Terrain HD is its suspension. The short box crer cab Sierra All Terrain HD threads the needle between the half-ton Raptor and three quarter ton Ram 2500 Power Wagon by carving a new niche that blends the off road prowess and features of the Ford and Ram trucks with a few new innovations. This is where GMC smells opportunity.

But these traits make an apples-to-apples comparison of the trucks difficult because their off road strengths lie at opposite ends of the wheeling spectrum. The Raptor flies across the desert at high speed, like a Baja trophy truck, while the Power Wagon can rock crawl over the toughest terrain you’ll find in Moab. We love both because these purpose built rigs can go places and do things off pavement that would kill lesser trucks within yards of the trailhead. The light duty Raptor and heavy-duty Power Wagon are two of the most capable off road pickup trucks ever to jump or climb off the showroom floor. The diesel powered GMC Sierra All Terrain Heavy Duty Concept which will debut next month at the 2011 Detroit auto show points to how the “professional grade” brand thinks it might deliver a credible competitor to the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor and the Ram 2500 Power Wagon in the current or next generation Sierra HD. Could GMC add a halo off road truck to its full-size pickup lineup?

GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept 2011

A slick new piece of suspension The Sierra All Terrain also has an electronic front stabilizer bar disconnect. The Ram features a front sway bar disconnect system that increases wheel travel and articulation to climb over tall obstacles. The All Terrain HD also borrows a cool trick for its front suspension from the straight axle Power Wagon. We wouldn’t be surprised if this latest Fox development effort causes a major rift with Ford, which brought prominence and high volume production expertise to Fox in OEM off road applications.

While Ram doesn’t offer Fox shocks for the Power Wagon, Chrysler Mopar performance parts division will also feature Fox Shocks as part of its aggressive Ram Runner dealer installed off road package for the light duty Ram 1500. In the Sierra, Fox’s long travel dampers add 2 inches more travel up front (11 inches total) and 3 inches in the rear (11.75 inches total) over the Sierra’s stock monotube shocks. There are no external bypass tubes to be damaged by offroad debris striking them; there are no worries about check valve durability; and the shocks can be tuned specifically to the Sierra All Terrain’s off road character. Hardcore off-roaders might not like this setup, but it solves several potential issues both for GMC and for less obsessive desert running enthusiasts. The valves have been replaced with very small gates, precisely placed for optimal damping in all conditions.

Instead of placing the oil routers outside the shocks, Fox sealed them inside the main tube so that they can’t be adjusted. Fox Racing’s internal bypass technology is slick and maintenance free. Fox’s shocks are the key components that give the Raptor such awesome wheel travel at high speeds off-road. If GMC wanted to get Ford’s attention, this should do it.

Lexus IS 350 AWD First Impressions 2011

There's an optional Navigation system with voice Standard gadgetry includes the Safety Connect telematics system, 13-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, an auxiliary jack and iPod/USB connectivity. At 13 cubic feet, the available trunk space is average for its segment. The centre stack is well-designed with straightforward instrumentation but the backup camera hasn't the same clarity of some other high end marques.

There are subtle metallic accents on gauge bezels and steering wheel and genuine wood trim on the centre console that would be lovely if it weren't so glossy. Soft-touch materials are top-notch quality, and add to the sense of acoustic hush. Black leather seats are supple and supportive although the long-legged might find the rear seating rather cramped. Inside, our tester's cabin is refined, if a bit dark. Head and tail lamps are revised, with the added drama of distinctive LED "arrowhead" running lights similar to Audi's.

It's a more aggressive look, with dramatic shoulder lines, and a sharply chiselled front end with reworked grille and integrated chin spoiler with upright foglamps. Outwardly, the model refresh is subtle, yet significant. With the introduction of the IS 350 AWD, Canadian drivers don't have to give up their extra horsepower or look elsewhere for foul-weather sure-footedness. Until now, Lexus aficionados looking to add the security of all wheel drive to their favourite luxury sedan were offered only one choice; the less potent IS 250. Narrow, tightly winding and slick with the cold fall rain, the route nicely caps off a day spent test driving the new Lexus IS 350 AWD.

Seven kilometres long, the Muskoka Beach Road snakes through the rocky outcroppings and dense woods that line the Muskoka Lake shoreline.

New Marsedes Benz SLS AMG 2011

The aluminum structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes says. Keeping the 182.6-inch long, two-seat SLS’s mass in check is its entirely aluminum construction (save for that driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for Mercedes Benz. Our SLS weighs only 3572 pounds, he says, nearly 300 pounds lighter than the McMerc. The SLS is a serious super sports car, says AMG chief of development Tobias Moers before taking a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car that still managed to weigh in at 3858 pounds.

It is, down to its churning carbon fiber core, AMG’s first dedicated automobile and the very antithesis of the overly complex and overweight half million dollar Mercedes SLR McLaren. It is not simply a Mercedes with bigger wheels and a breathed upon V-8 or V-12. We note this here because, despite the car’s retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is utterly bleeding edge both in terms of its technical attributes and what it represents for Mercedes’ in house tuner. Height of an adult female, weight of a gallon or so of gas these are the critical dimensions of the carbon fiber driveshaft running between the engine and the rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. It weighs 8.8 pounds. It’s five and a half feet long.

The two matt finishes designo magno allanite grey" and "AMG magno sylvanite grey" are just as eye-catching: with their matt silk surface they reinforce the sporty character of the two-seater through specific contouring of the crease lines. This effect is made possible thanks to tiny pigments measuring between 30 and 50 nanometres. The paint covers the body panels like a metallic skin, emphasises the scintillating design lines of the 'Gullwing' more strongly than any previous paint job and makes them even livelier by means of targeted light reflections. The highlight comes in the shape of the unique "AMG ALU-BEAM silver" paintwork: the new, unique process makes the paint shine like liquid metal. New colours: "AMG ALU BEAM silver" and two matt finishes The colour charts for the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG include nine exclusive paint finishes.

Marsedes Benz SLS AMG Design Purist, DistinCtive and Passionate 2011

The short overhangs feed through into the proportions, just as does the design of the super sports car with its low slung front mid engine set well With its purist design the new SLS AMG reflects the philosophy of contemporary sports car engineering: the bonnet which measures just under two metres, the low greenhouse positioned well to the rear and the short rear end with an extendable aerofoil are just as powerful a reminder of the superlative dynamism as the long wheelbase, the wide track and the large wheels. Design: purist, distinctive and passionate.
