Mercedes-AMG will ring in the 2015 motorsport season at the beginning of March with the sonorous sound of the V8 engine: the new Mercedes-AMG GT3, with which the Mercedes-Benz sports car and high-performance brand is systematically expanding its motorsports presence, will be making its debut appearance at the Geneva Motor Show. Developed to comply with the FIA’s GT3 race rules, the racing car will compete in the world’s most hotly contested customer race series. Cutting-edge racing technology and spectacular design predestine the new challenger for victories. The new GT3 is based on the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is being launched in just a few days’ time. Following an intensive test phase, the new AMG racing car will be shipped to the first customer teams at the end of 2015.
With the new Mercedes-AMG GT model range, the Mercedes-AMG sports car brand is moving into a new segment. As the second sports car developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG, the GT has everything you would expect from an authentic Mercedes-AMG, from the characteristic styling, thoroughbred motorsport technology to the optimum weight distribution.
Not many people pay attention to their car’s cooling system. Especially when a car has low mileage, there’s little to be concerned about, however, as the miles pile on things may start to happen. Lets take a look at what your coolant system does and things that you can do to make it last for years.
The primary job of an automobile’s cooling system is to remove the excess heat generates as you run your engine. As a result of combustion, the coolant temperature in a car can heat up to well over 200 degrees, and that energy has to go somewhere! That’s when the engine coolant starts working. The coolant absorbs engine heat and transfers it to the radiator where it is dissipated into the outside air.
As a car owner, you should know that a major factor that affects the reliability of your cooling system is the frequency of regular maintenance it receives -such as coolant changes and checks of hoses and belts. Motorists should consult their owner’s manual for specific recommendations about how often to flush the coolant system and change the coolant. A coolant removes dirt or sediment that has accumulated over the years.
Something that all drivers should know how is how to check the coolant level in their cars. It should be regularly checked at the reservoir and there are indicator lines that will show you what level it should be at. If you are unfamiliar with what your car’s coolant reservoir looks like, and how indicator level lines work, consult your owner’s manual. If the coolant is low in the reservoir, Reedman Toll Jaguar recommends a 50/50 mix of approved antifreeze and water should be added. By the way, when the coolant level is checked, do a visual inspection of hoses, belts for age-related cracks, and the radiator for any coolant leaks.
Drivers should always be aware of signs of trouble, particularly with older cars. Obvious signs of cooling system problems are the vehicle temperature gauge on the dash rising near the danger zone. If the temperature gauge does rise into the red zone, you can be almost certain that you have a cooling system problem of some sort. If see leakage of a green fluid inside your car, under the hood or on the ground under your car, you likely have a coolant leak and should consult a mechanic.
The coolant systems in today’s cars are very reliable and only need periodic maintenance. If you attend to the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule and perform a visual inspection periodically, your car’s coolant system should last for many, many years.
G-POWER, the specialist for charging technology for years, expands its product range with AMG models. The power increase of the charged AMG models is far from being new for G-POWER. For many years, loyal customers who have an AMG in the garage in addition to a high-power BMW, have received power-technical upgrades for their vehicle from Affalterbach. Since the number of these modifications grew continually, it was only consistent that this know-how was made accessible to a wider audience.
The focus of G-POWER, as in the BMW models, remains on the most sporty versions with the star – the vehicles by AMG. The beginnings were made by the AMG models with the strong 5.5 litres V8 biturbo motor, which will in future be supported by the G-POWER AMG division.
MANSORY is one of the premier addresses for the exclusive refinement of Mercedes vehicles. The company from Brand in Bavaria, Germany has once more proven this with the new Mercedes S Class AMG S63. A complete refinement program is available and gives the Daimler flagship a much more sporty and individual flair.
Mercedes-Benz is combining two classes of vehicle – each with its own distinct style – to make a new model, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. The sporty nature of a coupe dominates, imbued with the striking characteristics of a robust SUV. In addition to convincing on-road vehicle dynamics, the GLE Coupe looks impressive as well. With its flowing side contour, elongated and low greenhouse, striking radiator grille with central chrome louvre and rear end design, the GLE Coupe cites styling features typical of particularly sporty Mercedes-Benz models. At the premiere the GLE Coupe will be available as a diesel or petrol model with an output range of between 190 kW (258 hp) and 270 kW (367 hp). The top-of-the-range model GLE 450 AMG, the first representative of a new Mercedes-AMG product line – the AMG sports models – is particularly attractive. In addition to the generous amount of standard equipment, the DYNAMIC SELECT dynamic handling control system, the Sports Direct-Steer system and the driver assistance systems typical of the brand, the GLE 450 AMG always comes with the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive.
Actually, the considerable serial output of 557 PS in the current Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, should be quite sufficient for most uses. Should be; there is a surprising number of performance fans who can never get enough of such a potent vehicle.
Posaidon will gladly take care of this wish and by targeted measures generate so many additional PS in the E-class that no wishes will remain unfulfilled at all: Almost 300 PS extra turn the E63 AMG “RS 850″ into a hunter on the motorway that will hardly find its match in longitudinal dynamics.
Thanks to the professional management of Alexander MANTLER, the founded only in December 2013 in Goldbach near Aschaffenburg, Germany, premium tuning company VOLTAGE-DESIGN has shown its creativity innumerous times and has proven that a company can establish itself in the area of car and noble tuning on the market within only a few months in spite of omnipresent competition. Individual exterior and interior design and power improvement – handiwork is prime principle in all these device assemblies, in case of racing sports refitting too, of course.
