Paris Motor Show: The Highlights part 2
The 2014 Paris Motor Show is in full swing, one of the largest motor shows in the world. Exportcar has compiled a list of the most interesting highlights. Last week, we compiled a list of the world premieres. Now, it’s time for part two:
Mercedes AMG GT (Edition 1)
Mercedes officially launched the Mercedes AMG GT in Paris with the Edition 1. The AMG GT is Mercedes´s answer to the Porsche 911 and the Jaguar F-Type. It packs a 4.0L V8 with 2 turbo’s, developing 426 bhp or 510bhp.
The edition one features a couple of little changes, such as a bright yellow paint job, custom front- and rear bumper, as well as a couple of Edition 1 emblems.
Great news from Jaguar: they have finally released the long-awaited XE. The XE is a smaller car compared to the rest of the Jaguar range of cars, having about the same size as a BMW 3-series or Audi A4. The XE is cramped full of technology and can also be fitted with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The largest engine size available is the 3.0 V6 with a supercharger, developing 340bhp. There are also 2 diesels available, as well as 2 smaller petrol engines.
Ferrari 458 Speciale A
Ferrari launched a special edition of the already amazing 458: the Speciale A. Based on the convertible version of the 458, the Spider, the Speciale shared little other details other then the bodyshape. The engine has been tweaked to deliver 605bhp and has gained a eye-cathcing central stripe, as well as some other details on the body. 0-100 km/h is still done in 3 seconds, the same as the hard-top version of the speciale, which weighs 50 kilograms less then the soft top. Pretty impressive.
Suzuki has given the Vitara a facelift, but has been really quiet about it. The new Vitara will be available as a FWD and 4WD, with only 1.6L engines. Along with some small changes to the exterior, the Vitara will be the reliable beast we know and love.
