8:31 pm
a contest the class needs weed says porsche recently released the company's version of the cayenne this is 85 so what's different a lot of wind shield is a little flatter but the big changes start at the front pillars and the rear has changed a lot since well they're the coup play has little in common with the standard. it's the 20 millimeters lower impact for one thing as well as 18 millimeters wider and 13 longer. 3 engines on offer for it all real beasts he says but we'll get back to that later 1st it is going to take it out for a little spin around the austrian city of cuts. from the very beginning engineers took a 2 track approach to the 3rd generation and so the play has been planning for quite a while aimed at younger customers the models redesigned body promises a more dynamic sporty driving experience just like in the standard kayani can be had with a range of power trying to look. power between 250 and 404 kilowatts. the

sloping roof line and rio give the coup play a distinctive personality that can perhaps best be described as athletically imposing a kind of cross between champion sprinter and sumo wrestler. but . as you probably expect less headroom in a cool play and usually you'd be right but cautious engineers are pretty clever that they lowered the seams by around 3 centimeters freeing up that sways for taller drivers and passengers. the interior shares one characteristic with the standard is clear lines and good instrument overview. the transmission is an automatic.
8:33 pm
fallback it seems a standard for the model but in the rear they can be swapped out for a 3 seat bench. that. says connoisseurs can choose the design trim line it includes 22 inch wheels ceramic brake pads and various body elements made of carbon most of them in the interior and roof they help make the car a little lighter he says like. the rear of the coupe a screen sportiness the small black strip above the logo deserves a 2nd glance it's an active spoiler that extends out to $13.00 centimeters at speeds of over 90 kilometers an hour increasing the downforce on the rear axle to improve stability and to now make performance. making the. out of carbon cuts 20 kilograms from the vehicles overall weight which

also slightly lower as its center of gravity. classes that in his opinion a car of over 2 chinese can ever be considered really sporty but the downs have a very sporty appearance here. and when you take it out to test it 0 on country roads it handles a very wealthy guy. with the feeling you are safe and in control he has all wheel drive and the one he's driving also has ceramic brakes you can brake late long and hard with them without a problem. but it also comes with a driver assist system so even less skilled you drivers would feel very safe the wheel of it he says. class is testing the s.q. pay version of the car and equipped with a $6.00 cylinder by turbo engine that can hurl it from a standstill to 100 kilometers an hour in 5 seconds flat top speed is 263

kilometers an hour a bare bones version without any extras so i was in germany for just under 100000 euros. the performance parameters are pretty impressive says klaus when you hit the gas it really leaps forward and even presses you back into your seat a little. what's interesting is there's no lanka before the turbo kicks it off because the engine has 2 super charges nowadays you can build in such a way that there's no lack he says to make it. on the wheels control the allows you to individually configure a range of different driving modes and if the sportiest mode just isn't quite sporty enough maybe time to take it up much. thought the. classes had enough of the cooper 8 s. model now is going to try out the turbo version of the car it packs $550.00 on.
8:36 pm
horsepower and so has plenty of go he says. he didn't invent the s.u.v. to play sigmund but the southern german schools car manufacturer just wouldn't be porsche if it didn't try to show the competition how it's done it's hard to top the power and performance offered by one of its models bearing the turbo label. the council forms danes are really impressive it's ups out of 286 kilometers an hour on the autobahn no one really needs that of course but some drivers like the feeling their car can go 300. $100.00 in just under 4 seconds he says and the parameters overall are a lot like that of a sports car even though it suits the coupe a of course can't make that claim but it looks like one good sports car drivers. the 3 to get. which would need take you can be 550 horsepower but you don't really need that he'd be just as happy with
8:37 pm
the s. version and. there's also the little matter of the $47000.00 euro difference in price between the $2.00 there is plenty of fun to be had in the s.q. play even for a former race driver. is in today a minimal chauffeurs in morocco apparently there have been sightings of a rare wild animal here and he's hunting for clues. he's just seem fresh tracks with the wind hasn't come of the movie yet so it can't be far away and. they lead the way.
8:38 pm
that if he was spotted it knew ford ranger raptor man he says what an impressive silence. while. or that an american model says this kind of car might seem familiar to our american viewers because you'll find the f 150 raptor there sadly we can buy it over here in europe but thanks to the ranger the raptor has finally arrived here to here's a closer look at the design of. these i check. just like with its big brother the ford logo is emblazoned across the radiator grille. the lateral air intakes and heavy duty plastic off road skirting also coming from the f 150. handy step helps you climb into the almost 1.9 meter to pick up. time. we make our way

across a long sandy beach to the nearest of them emanuel switches quickly from 2 to 4 wheel drive to find out what the raptor really has to offer he has 6 different driving modes to choose from there's even one 1st so. that's part of it however emanuel says he's still finding it pretty rough going despite all the extra resistance driving over a gene like this you can't tell whether the sand is for or soft if you have to keep hitting the gas until you're over the top he says otherwise you could get stuck pretty quickly. sometimes you can do everything right and still end up stuck but with a little help in the right tools you can get yourself out again. the

special off road tires on the range around taskbar really suited to the. purpose you can use them on the road too but they'll make your journey much louder and anyway this is a vehicle that belongs out here in the great outdoors. these are the fine desert sand creeps into every nook and cranny is as amount of oil as soon as he steps out of the car issues are full of it and of course the interior isn't spared either. he says there is sand everywhere. and a couple definitely needed for good vacuum later ones and then on the. desktop saga. developed together with full performance the range of raptor has a reinforced chassis of hardened steel it also offers high performance positions

even high speeds are no problem for this cast as amount of them and it actually feels quite relaxing considering how broad the terrain is but that's why he switched on a special baja off road mode. comes from the legendary bar how $1000.00 offer of race in mexico now there's just one more challenge in store for the range of its mass to desert rocks how about water. the truck plunges through without a hitch it's nearly 30 centimeters of ground clearance keeping well it's of trouble . with the raptor has fording capabilities of 85 centimeters says i'm out of so i can drive through water up to here but he wouldn't leave it in there at that depth because
8:44 pm
the bed would probably fill up. the interior wouldn't be far behind and the fine leather upholstery and launch digital display. would be devastated by a soaking they almost make you forget that the ranger raptor is a utility vehicle that starting price $67000.00 euros in germany is also a state for the class. in minerals says that visually the ranger rapture is a stunner class and its off roading abilities are also top notch the only improvement he will look for is an engine similar to that of the pick ups big brother the f 158 appreciate a nice v 8 with a guttural roar. b.m.w. has launched its new mit to play which packs a 460 can
