Recall for the AMG GT
The model is already at the end of its life, soon to be replaced by the new SL, but that does not prevent manufacturers from always being attentive to safety. This is why a new recall concerning the AMG GT has been notified to owners (only 28 copies concerned in France, most being Black Series), with a small intervention and immobilization of the vehicle for 2 hours to carry out repairs. The culprit is the wiring harness for the front wheel speed sensors, which can interfere with the operation of certain driving aids.
New SL at 190,000 euros
The new sports coupe from Mercedes-Benz, still as elegant, has just revealed its prices. The new SL, which passes under the fold of Mercedes-AMG and also marks the great return of the canvas hood, will start its prices from 190,700 euros (and this, without penalty…). A price certainly very salty, but which corresponds to the 63 AMG version, equipped with the V8 of 585 horsepower for a torque of 800 Nm, with a Nappa leather interior and many interesting standard equipment (head-up display, heated steering wheel etc… ).
Segment A is electrifying
In the wake of the Volkswagen group, Audi should launch a zero-emission model in the segment of small urban vehicles. Not believing in synthetic fuels and aiming for all-electric production in the short term, Audi is planning to electrify the main segments by 2027. Audi is reportedly considering a vehicle smaller than an A1, which should be based on a new platform which will will see the light of day in 2026. So we have time to see it coming, but Audi prefers to warn us of its strategy from the outset.
Audi does not believe in synthetic fuel
Many manufacturers are embarking on the quest for synthetic fuel (like Porsche), in order to continue to bring combustion engines to life in an ever more restrictive world. However, the manufacturer from Ingolstadt does not see it as a lasting solution despite an interest. Indeed, Audi sees synthetic fuel as a transitional step before full electrification. For the manufacturer, combustion engines are well and truly doomed to disappear, giving way to a new kind of electrified sportiness.
BMW takes over ALPINA
The German manufacturer has a close and particularly strong link with the preparer Alpina, a specialist in the Bavarian brand, often offering ultra-sporty but also comfortable versions (like the B3 or the B5). Recently, the BMW group took control of Alpina. Until 2025, the relationship between the two entities will remain unchanged. On the other hand, after this date, BMW will take over in operational management by ensuring Alpina’s energy transition and developing a catering center.
