Mercedes-AMG GT S by Prior Design


Widened to perfection: new PD700GTR wide body kit for the AMG GT

The Mercedes AMG GT S is enchanting just as it comes off the line, with its gorgeous coupé styling, its extra-long hood and substantially recessed passenger compartment, as well as the beguiling curvature of the body. This two-door also sits firmly on the road thanks to its width and low height, making it the dream of many a car lover. But it makes an even more striking impression when it is equipped with the new wide body kit from Prior Design. The kit bears the name of PD700GTR and makes its competitor, the Porsche 911 from Affalterbach, look almost outrageously muscular by comparison. So the driver of this sports car can be sure of being the main attraction wherever he shows up.

The most important part of the kit is, of course, the extremely sweeping widening of the body on the front and rear axles. New side rocker panels provide for a shapely connection of the axles. In addition, the kit includes complete front and rear skirts – including a spoiler lip and cup fenders in front and a large diffuser and cup fenders in the rear, as well. An engine hood and the fixed, multi-piece rear spoiler round off the package. The body kit is produced entirely of carbon on request. Of course, wheel housings that are so enlarged definitely need a new set of wheels. This AMG is standing on Prior Design PD3Forged wheels with five double spokes, the black finish of which contrasts agreeably with the red paint job on the body. The dimensions of these three-part wheels are 9.5x20” and 12.5x21,” while the Continental tires measure 245/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR21.

The interior of the GT S, which is already furnished to a very high standard at the factory, has been similarly customized. Thanks to many decorative elements made of carbon fiber, the cockpit appears even more regal and sporty, perfectly taking up the spirit of the exterior’s look.

Since a full-bodied roar is practically a necessity for the engine of such an imposing sports car, Prior Design also provided some enhancements in this respect: a new exhaust system, including valve control, has been added to the four-liter twin-turbo V8 in the GT S. Lastly, the H&R sports springs, which lower the body of the Mercedes by 40 millimeters, put the perfect final touch on its look and handling. Hence the GT S not only has everything it needs to be a first-rate show car, but is also intended to be convincing on the racetrack. At present, Prior Design is running test drives on the Nürburgring with the professional racecar driver and owner of Pure Energy, David Schiwietz. The results will soon be made public, along with other information.

Stronger, faster and more sustainable on the racetrack
New Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport featuring natural-fibre body parts Stuttgart. Three years after the premiere of the first Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Porsche now unveils its successor: The new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport represents a consequent further development of the successful model from Weissach.

Full-Size LEGO® Silverado | Chevrolet

Chevrolet and students from the Oxford Community School’s FIRST LEGO® League and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program unveiled the first-ever full-size LEGO® Silverado today at the North American International Auto Show just ahead of the show opening to the public. The model is an exact life-size replica of the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, and it is the first full-size Chevy vehicle built entirely of LEGO bricks.
The LEGO Silverado continues the partnership between Chevy and Warner Bros. Pictures that began in 2017 with “The LEGO Batman Movie” and the LEGO Batmobile from Chevy. This partnership builds on the Silverado marketing efforts that launched earlier this month. 
A custom mini-build of the Silverado High Country will make an appearance in the new big-screen animated adventure “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” when it debuts in theaters on Feb. 8. In this fun and action-packed sequel, the heroes of “The LEGO Movie” reunite to save…

2020 Porsche 911 992 Documentary

Porsche released the details of the 992's first powertrains as part of the model’s debut. Both the Carrera S and Carrera 4S – the first two members of the next-generation 911 family – feature twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engines. We knew from the debut that both models would have 443 horsepower on offer, but we can now report that there’s 390 pound-feet of torque, as well. All told, there's 23 horsepowers and 22 lb-ft of torque more than the current Carrera S.
Despite these modest gains (relative to 400-plus-horsepower sports cars), the new 911 is much more potent. The sprint to 60 miles per hour takes just 3.5 seconds for the Carrera S and 3.4 seconds for the all-wheel-drive variant – grab the Sport Chrono Package, and those figures fall to 3.3 and 3.2 seconds, respectively. The top speed, meanwhile, is 191 mph for both variants.
Porsche calls the 992's engine “new,” but really, its official name gives away its modified nature – the 9A2 Evo. Based on the 991.2…
