마세라티는 이탈리아 모데나 본사에서 25일 저녁에 열린 글로벌 프리미어 행사에서 컨버터블 슈퍼 스포츠카 ‘MC20 첼로(Cielo)’의 모습을 처음으로 공개했다.

첼로(Cielo)는 이탈리아어로 ‘하늘’이라는 뜻으로, 기존 MC20 쿠페 모델의 퍼포먼스와 성능을 유지하면서 야외에서 드라이빙의 즐거움을 누릴 수 있다는 의미다. ‘MC’는 마세라티 코르세(Maserati Corse)의 약자로 레이싱을 뜻하고, ‘20’는 브랜드의 새 시대를 시작한 2020년을 상징한다.

MC20 첼로는 디자인적으로 럭셔리와 스포티함의 조화를 보여주는 것이 특징이다. 루프가 열려 있을 때나 닫혀 있을 때 모두 풍동실험실에서 360° 테스트를 거쳐, 공기역학적으로 뛰어난 성능을 보여준다. MC20 첼로는 컨버터블 모델임에도 0à100km/h 3.0초, 최고 속도는 320km/h 이상을 자랑한다(MC20 쿠페형의 경우 0-100km/h 2.9초, 최고 속도 325km/h). MC20 쿠페 모델과 마찬가지로 100% 마세라티의 기술력으로 만들어진 V6 네튜노 엔진이 장착됐다.

또한 MC20 첼로에 적용된 접이식 글라스 루프는 최첨단 스마트 글라스 윈도우로, PDLC(Polymer-Distributed Liquid Crystal) 기술이 적용돼 중앙 화면의 버튼 터치 한 번으로 투명에서 불투명한 상태로 즉시 전환이 가능하다. 또한 단열 및 개폐 속도(12초) 측면에서도 동급 최강의 성능을 갖췄다.

마세라티 CEO 다비데 그라소(Davide Grasso)는 “글로벌 슈퍼 스포츠카 시장에서 컨버터블 부문은 35%에 달한다”며 “마세라티는 MC20 첼로 모델로 컨버터블 슈퍼 스포츠카 부문의 점유율을 확대해 나갈 것”이라고 전했다.​

Modena – Performance and comfort: the dual souls of Maserati, harking back to the brand’s racing roots and its iconic GranTurismo spirit. These features are now taken to a new level in terms of performance and driving pleasure in the great outdoors: Maserati presents the MC20 Cielo spyder.

Equipped with the revolutionary V6 Nettuno engine that made its debut in the 2020 MC20, MC20 Cielo offers a perfect mix of sportiness and luxury, courtesy of a specification unique to the segment: the innovative retractable glass roof
A “first of its kind” and best-in-class in terms of thermal insulation, of opening and closing speed (just 12 seconds), and of how it epitomises the best in technology.
To do so, the new model is equipped with a state-of-the-art electrochromic (smart glass) window that can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button on the central screen, courtesy of Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology.*

As such, MC20 Cielo provides a multi-faceted driving experience: all-encompassing with the roof closed and opaque; a unique “sky feeling” when the roof is transparent; holistic with the top down.

When a coupé is transformed into a convertible, the increase in weight is usually a major challenge. Innovative by nature, Maserati has managed to limit this and maintain the innate sporty DNA of the MC20.
MC20 Cielo weighs just 65 kg more than the coupé, made possible by meticulous, precise work during the stages of the car’s design. By limiting the increase in weight to around 60 kg, Maserati maintains the dynamic performance and driving pleasure of the coupé version in the MC20 Cielo.
The carbon fibre chassis also guarantees uncompromising torsional rigidity, offering a combination of extraordinary handling on the road and on the track.

The new model also adds a wide range of Active Safety Systems, unlike any other model ever has in this segment. As well as the parking sensors, rear-view camera and blind spot monitoring included in the MC20 since the MY22, the new spyder introduces autonomous emergency brake, traffic sign information and the Surround View 360° system, to help with parking manoeuvres using four extra cameras.

The new spyder will broaden the MC20 range and will bring Maserati into the segment of convertible sports cars. The brand intends to expand its offering to cover the convertible segment, which represents 35% of the global super sports car market.

* The central display can also be used to operate the roof at a speed of up to 50 km/h, in complete safety.

 

A spyder with a one-of-a-kind roof

The innovative electrically retractable glass roof
MC20 Cielo is “First of its Kind”, bold in every respect and designed for perfection, all the way to the minutest detail. The component that makes it stand out from every other spyder is the electrically retractable glass roof, the epitome of technology.
The clear glass roof, the largest in the segment, is 909 mm long, 615 mm wide and has a surface area of more than half a square metre (5,268 cm2).

MC20 Cielo is the only model in its class with a fully retractable glass roof as standard, with no impact on the car’s storage space. To operate it, all you need to do is tap a button on the central touchscreen: in just 12 seconds, the roof opens or closes, transforming this super sports car.
Another tap on another touch button and the glass changes from clear to opaque or vice versa. Advanced Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology makes it possible for the change of transparency to take place in an instant; it works at virtually all temperatures, from -30°C to +85°C.
Made by Maserati in partnership with Webasto, the device also guarantees perfect heat sealing and reduced in-car noise, setting the benchmark in a segment where retractable roofs are often made of canvas or sheet metal.

As usual for Maserati, innovation is accompanied by unique and immediately recognisable styling cues.
Therefore, just as the MC20 coupé proudly sports a stylised Trident – acting as a cooling air intake for the Nettuno engine – on the polycarbonate engine compartment cover, the brand’s icon can likewise make an appearance, in the optional extra of an all-new Trident decal.
The iconic Trident decal is made of matte titanium, with a special coating consisting of a film of transparent varnish.

 

Design

Concept and Design
The design of the MC20 Cielo was developed at the Centro Stile Maserati in Turin.
The same goes for the new spyder, its basis the history of a brand that has elegance and racing spirit in its DNA. Maserati design is the perfect combination of sportiness and character, following timeless lines that make “Visual Longevity” (an approach that transcends fashion) its manifesto.

The project stages: dialogue between design and engineering
The work of the Centro Stile Maserati begins with a briefing on the product and its engineering. At Maserati, the briefing is debated and shaped to achieve the best possible trade-off before moving on to the practical stages, taking drawings and sketches as their starting point. The design is developed throughout the project, in continuous dialogue with the engineering departments.

MC20 Cielo is a car with an elegant yet sporty design.
Its character and personality are truly eye-catching for the purity of its forms, which seem to have been carved out by the wind, whether the roof is open or closed.

Nothing is superfluous, everything has its own function. The aim at the Centro Stile Maserati was to integrate all the demands of aerodynamics in an organic way, as if the car had evolved naturally.
The only concession to a surprise effect is the butterfly doors, which also remain in the spyder. 
The butterfly door provides much easier access into and out of the cabin, as well as showing off the carbon fibre cockpit, the aerodynamics and the completely unmasked front wheel.

Maserati MC20 Cielo is a project that brings together two very different worlds. Its outfit – the bodywork – represents beauty and purity; the chassis, the carbon fibre underbody, epitomises technology and extreme performance. The upper section of the car conveys strong yet aesthetically harmonious impressions; the lower part, with its bare carbon fibre, begins with the aerodynamic floor and is rather more aggressively designed, with sharp edges and corners: everything has its own function. The front grille is the linking feature between these two worlds. It combines a bare carbon fibre lower part with a body-colour top, and its form appears to consist of two components.

The front wing lacks the three air vents that served as a signature feature of Maserati models, but would be pointless here, as the engine is mid-mounted. However, they are taken back up in the channels set into the sides of the matching cover.

 

Exterior

A dedicated colour: Acquamarina
For MC20 Cielo, Maserati has created a new colour: known as Acquamarina, it is available as part of the Maserati Fuoriserie customisation programme.
The concept that led the brand to select this special three-layer paint consisted of taking such a high-performance car in a more contemporary direction: holistic, high-tech and uniform in colour, all at once.

Maserati searched for a colour that would recall driving in the great outdoors, with the wind in your hair.  A fresh, luminous and light shade. An iridescent colour, in its interaction with light, revealing itself in a surprising way.

The base is a pastel grey inspired by racing, reminiscent of the MC20’s sporty DNA, accompanied by an iridescent aquamarine mica that enlivens the colour and makes it stand out.

MC20 Cielo is fitted out in a colour that not only speaks of performance, but also serves as a nod to its racing origin by bringing together the brand’s dual souls: elegance and racing.

Other than the launch hue, MC20 Cielo revisits the colour palette created for the coupé, plus Grigio Incognito (a pastel grey). The range therefore encompasses five other colours: Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, and Grigio Mistero.
Every one of them was developed exclusively for the MC20. All the colours were created by bringing together two aspects: a strong reference to Made in Italy, the local area and a modern reinterpretation of models and colours that have made history for the brand.

The interior of the MC20 Cielo follows the same philosophy. In the launch version, light is key, in the use of ice-coloured Alcantara and leather. Below the dashboard, the ice-coloured door panels and seats enhance the finishes and contribute to the visual lightness of the car in comparison to the standard version, which retains a black leather interior. The trident on the headrest can also be embroidered by hand as an optional extra.

As with all the models in the Maserati range, the new spyder can also be customised, making it a blank canvas for your own tastes, made possible by the Maserati Fuoriserie programme.

PrimaSerie Launch Edition
Specially and only at launch, the MC20 Cielo is also available in the PrimaSerie Launch Edition, a limited series of around 60 models featuring exclusive content.
The very name – PrimaSerie – indicates the privilege of owning an all-new model, and makes exclusivity a clear strength. 

Its unique features are clear to see, all the way to the minutest detail: the exterior in the new Acquamarina colour is complemented by new MM20” wheel rims in a special version with Gold finish and laser-engraved “PrimaSerie” wording. The badges on the bodywork also come in a specific finish.

The interiors are upholstered in ice-coloured Alcantara and leather, embellished with specific contrasting stitching in aquamarine on both the dashboard and the “PrimaSerie” wording on the headrest.

New wheel rims
The new Maserati spyder adds to the MC20 range of rims a new diamond-cut alloy wheel featuring a refined design, where the key component is the double the Roman numeral that recalls the car's name and the year that marked the beginning of a “new era” for Maserati. These rims are available as an optional extra for both the coupé and the spyder.
Carbon fibre wheel rims will also be available, to ensure weight savings of 30 kg in comparison to the standard version.

 

Interior

The interior: the realm of functionality
Maserati MC20 Cielo conveys emotions with its elegant yet sporty line, and leaves the role of pure functionality to the interior. Everything is highly streamlined, almost minimalist, with two 10-inch screens, one for the cockpit and the other, the Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC Plus MIA) in a central position, slanted slightly towards the driver.

The tunnel is very plain, with no unnecessary ornamentation. It includes only the drive mode selector, two buttons for the gears, the power window controls and the infotainment volume control, and a space for a smartphone with wireless charging pad. All the other controls are located on the steering wheel, with the ignition button on the left and the launch control on the right.

Although the function of every component takes priority, the interior is skilfully styled with carbon fibre to act as a meeting point for lifestyle, performance and engineering. The carbon fibre in the interior is matte in finish, for a more tailored, fabric-like look.

As seen in the MY23 coupé, the spyder has benefited from upgrades to its interior and new features: new control levers have been added behind the steering wheel, as have new buttons to turn on the lights, while the Alcantara steering wheel now comes as standard, with a blue engine start button.

Sports steering wheel in Alcantara
The steering wheel is taken from the MC20, developed and designed with input from Andrea Bertolini, Maserati Reference Driver and former World Champion in the MC12. A thicker steering wheel was chosen to maximise ergonomics and the sporty ‘feel’.

Only the essential buttons and switches remain intact, including the Start and Launch Control buttons. 

The easily accessible, generously sized paddle shifters set into the steering column are available in dark aluminium in the standard configuration, or in carbon fibre as part of the carbon fibre interior package.

With MC20 Cielo, as in the MY23 coupé, the steering wheel comes in Alcantara as standard, or in carbon fibre with a blue engine start button.

Another major new feature is the electrical steering adjustment system, available as an optional extra for the MC20, starting from the new Cielo variant. Adding only 700 grams to the car's weight, this specification extends the angular movement of the steering wheel and makes its adjustment even more intuitive and precise.

 

A spyder devoted to performance

Three versions of the monocoque
Entirely made of carbon fibre and composite materials, the monocoque is a rush of technology and performance; ever since the outset, it has been designed for all three types of the car: coupé, spyder and, in the future, electric.

The monocoque’s architecture and geometry are the same for all three versions, but differ in the distribution of the carbon fibre and its layers, to provide monocoques with different structural characteristics for the three different types of car: the focus for the coupé will be on limited weight and high performance; the spyder demands greater torsional rigidity given the lack of a roof; the electric version will have more overall strength and enhanced protection for the battery housing.
One single design therefore encompasses three versions, with changes only made to the type, quantity and arrangement of the carbon fibre.

Refined aerodynamics
MC20 Cielo is designed as a sculpture in movement; its refined aerodynamics have been developed with the layout of the MC20 as a starting point, using both CFD simulations and experimental testing: Computational fluid dynamics and wind tunnel on a 1:1 scale.

The retractable roof has been built into the upper part of the car, with no compromise on the cleanliness of the lines, nor on the high aerodynamic efficiency of the bodywork in the coupé version.

The engine compartment air intakes have been repositioned as a result of careful optimisation using computational fluid dynamics, to avoid any adverse impact on the car’s resistance.
New boomerang-style outlets are built into the additional side fenders: the extraction of hot air from the engine compartment is maximised by exploiting the effect of the flow that passes over the fenders, while the aerodynamic efficiency of the spoiler remains unchanged.
The aerodynamically shaped B-pillar helps the air flow more cleanly over the surface, while the new rear air intakes with built-in aerodynamic deflectors optimise the direction and amount of clean air coming in via the engine intakes to cool the intercoolers.

With the roof open, the clean lines in the upper section of the car manage air flow to ensure greater comfort in the cabin: every detail has been optimised to improve efficiency, even when driving with the top down.

Special attention has also been paid to proper management of heat flows.

Its front incorporates an elaborate system of vortex generators, rendered even more effective by the distinctive hump shape of the floor. It gradually rises in the centre, in the area level with the wheels, to increase the air flow to these devices, before reconnecting to the chassis bed.

The venting channel in the area behind the front wheel starts near the point where the hump reaches its greatest extent and continues right along the side, generating a considerable vertical load in line with the front axle by expelling the air flowing from the bottom and the wheel arch.

The development of this feature, very much derived from racing, required special formation of the carbon fibre monocoque, the wheel arch and the doors, as was also the case previously for the MC12.

To conclude, the rear part of the floor of the car includes a large diffuser, with channels of different depths and optimised vertical spoilers that exploit the pressure differences between the various sections to generate vortices and energise the air flow.

Thanks to the almost obsessive care taken over the development of all these features, and the ceaseless hard work to integrate technical factors with aesthetic demands, just like its sibling coupé model, the MC20 Cielo generates a high aerodynamic load with an excellent drag, enabling it to reach top speeds over 320 km/h and continue to hug the ground in all conditions of use.

The Nettuno engine
The engine is the same revolutionary Nettuno that debuted in the coupé version. Nettuno is the result of a genuine technological revolution, protected by international patents.
A strategic operation for Maserati, a brand now preparing to launch a project “100% Made in Modena” for the MC20 and MC20 Cielo family of super sports cars, starting straight from its engine, the heart of the new car.

Nettuno has a V 90° architecture, with a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder twin-turbo, and features a dry sump (a classic solution on super sports cars). It can deliver 630 hp at 7,500 rpm and 730 Nm of torque from 3,000 rpm.  The power-to-weight ratio is 210 hp/litre.
The compression ratio is 11:1, the stroke is 82 mm, with a bore of 88 mm.

The soul of the engine is the innovative pre-chamber combustion system featuring twin spark plugs. This technology is derived from Formula 1 and is now available for the first time on an engine destined for the road.

 

Technical specifications
The driver’s seat of the MC20 Cielo is as essential, functional and streamlined as in the coupé version. The focus is entirely on the driver and their quest for optimal performance.

The central tunnel is clad with carbon fibre and only includes the buttons and switches that are absolutely essential, to maintain concentration on the driving experience and to sustain the approach of elegant minimalism, the style canon for the interior.

The most luxurious detail is the drive mode selector, in a digital version here: taking centre stage, it is the distinctive feature that tells the driver and passenger they are aboard a Maserati.

New drive mode selector
The drive mode selector – positioned in the middle of the tunnel – is now a digital touch device, showing the drive mode preset by the driver, suspension calibration management and ESC Off, all on its small screen.

MC20 Cielo offers five drive modes: WET, GT, SPORT, CORSA and ESC OFF. Each one is identified by its own colour: WET is green; GT blue; SPORT red; CORSA yellow; ESC OFF orange.

Drive modes are selected by turning the selector for a few seconds. For example, the car starts in GT mode by default. To switch from GT to SPORT (to the right) or WET (to the left), it only takes half a second of movement towards the mode required. Or the driver can press the selector for 2 seconds to choose CORSA mode. Once CORSA drive mode has been selected, the touchscreen can be used to switch to ESC OFF mode.

The five modes are differentiated as follows:
GT mode (default drive mode)
GT Mode is the default drive mode when the car is started. It is ideal for everyday driving and provides maximum ease of use and comfort.

  • Engine boost: normal
  • Pedal sensitivity: normal resistance
  • Active exhaust valves: only open over 5,000 rpm
  • Gear shift setting: slow and smooth
  • Suspension: soft
  • Traction control: normal

WET Mode
WET mode offers the highest level of control on wet or damp road surfaces, to prevent skidding during acceleration or on corners.

  • Engine boost: limited
  • Pedal sensitivity: normal resistance
  • Active exhaust valves: only open over 5,000 rpm
  • Gear shift setting: slow and smooth
  • Suspension: soft
  • Traction control: all controls active

SPORT Mode
SPORT mode offers the highest performance in high-traction conditions and is ideal for use on the track.

  • Engine boost: normal
  • Pedal sensitivity: low resistance, high sensitivity
  • Active exhaust valves: open over 3,500 rpm
  • Gear shift setting: fast and direct
  • Suspension: rigid
  • Traction control: sport

CORSA Mode
CORSA mode offers the driver the most extreme experience. Traction control is much less active and stability control is active if with very high thresholds. This mode provides maximum enjoyment, but also the most challenging handling.

  • Engine boost: maximum (maximum power immediately available)
  • Pedal sensitivity: low resistance, extremely sensitive and responsive
  • Active exhaust valves: always open
  • Gear shift setting: racing
  • Suspension: racing
  • Traction control: race

In Corsa mode, the driver has the option to enable Launch Control by pressing the button on the steering wheel.

ESC OFF mode
In ESC OFF mode, all control functions are disabled. It is similar to CORSA mode, but with traction control completely disabled.

Adjustable suspension
With the new digital drive mode, the way to change the suspension settings has changed. Swiping on the display switches from drive mode to suspension settings. By turning the bezel surrounding the screen, the driver can adjust rigidity depending on the drive mode selected. In the GT and SPORT drive modes, the suspension can be set to SOFT or MID, whereas in CORSA drive mode, the settings available are MID and HARD. HARD is the most rigid setting, suitable for driving conditions on the track.

MC20 Cielo has a double-wishbone suspension system with active shock absorbers. The short spindle semi-virtual double-wishbone layout is used on both the front and rear axles. This suspension type ensures the best performance in terms of handling and ride comfort.
The semi-virtual double-wishbone assembly on the front axle guarantees the best control of the steering wheel and the highest degree of steering precision, and it cushions the vibrations transmitted from the road to the steering wheel, to guarantee better overall driver comfort.
All the components are made of forged aluminium for optimal weight savings.

Transmission
The automatic transmission is an 8-speed oil-immersed Dual Clutch design with six power and two overdrive speeds to ensure emissions compliance.

Vehicle height variator
As an optional extra, a system is available to raise the vehicle when running at low speeds, increasing ground clearance when traversing obstacles such as speed bumps or very steep inclines. The driver can activate the system by pressing the specific button on the steering wheel. When activated, the hydraulic system raises the front axle by 50 mm. The driver can then deactivate the system by pressing the button again. At this point, the car will return to the standard ground clearance.
The system works at up to 40 km/h. If the lift system is activated and the car exceeds 40 km/h, the system is deactivated automatically and the car returns to the normal height above the ground.

 

High Premium Sonus faber sound system
Similar to the 2021 MC20 Coupé, the new MC20 Cielo is equipped with an optional High Premium Sonus faber audio system. The MC20 Coupé system, an EISA award-winning in-vehicle audio system, has been specifically optimized to fit the unique acoustic and positioning needs of the Cielo cabin, situating the system’s 12 speakers to result in the Natural Sound that distinguishes Sonus faber audio systems.

The High Premium Sonus faber system consists of 12 speakers: 

  • 2 tweeters in the door panel 
  • 2 mid-range speakers in the door panel 
  • 2 woofers in the door panel
  • 1 mid-range in the middle of the dashboard
  • 1 tweeter in the middle of the dashboard
  • 2 mid-ranges in the rear
  • 2 tweeters in the rear

In the new model, the cabin acoustics change considerably when the roof is opened or closed. The Sonus faber High Premium audio system recognises the MC20 Cielo configuration and automatically adapts the time-alignment, equalisation and sound levels, instinctively offering the best possible audio performance, in line with Sonus faber’s DNA and signature sound.

Sonus faber is an Italian manufacturer of handcrafted speakers, and other high-end audio equipment, the result of the idea of a man who loved music and its correct reproduction, but also from a person with a special sensibility about handcrafted wood products and a true reverence for beauty. The Sonus faber brand tells a story by means of sound and materials Each Sonus faber product, be it past, present or future, is able to take the listener into a world of long-lasting tradition, Italian culture and craftsmanship. Our handmade musical instruments are true to Italian expertise, with an unforgettable voice that immerses you in a natural sound experience.

 

Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) Multimedia System
MC20 Cielo is equipped with the latest Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) multimedia system. The heart of MIA is the powerful Android Automotive operating system, which offers an innovative, high-performance User Experience, fully customisable to the driver’s preferences.

MIA has two in-car screens: the digital cluster and central display, which are similar in shape and size. Neither too large nor too small, they are perfectly suited to the functional cabin interior of the MC20 Cielo; they facilitate driving comfort by not requiring the driver to refocus when going from one screen to the other.
The 10.25-inch cluster is fully digital, with a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display.

The central display, again 10.25-inch, has an HD resolution and touchscreen functions typical of personal smart devices. The screen has a special anti-reflective coating to ensure maximum visibility even in direct sunlight.
When the devices are switched off, they have a total black effect, made possible by an innovative optical solution.
The controls to open, close and change the transparency of the roof appear on the central screen.

BMW는 5월 20일 'M4 CSL'을 유럽에서 발표했다. 신형 ‘M4 쿠페’를 베이스로 경량화를 도모하는 등 고성능 모델로 세계 한정 1,000대를 생산할 예정이다.

「CSL」이란, 「Coupe(또는 Competition) Sport Lightweigh」의 약어. BMW M의 2도어 쿠페 정점에 위치한 모델이다. 하지만, 2004년 'M3 CSL 쿠페'가 마지막이었다. 이후에는 나오지 않다가 18년 만에 부활했다.

 

초점은 경량화. 뒷좌석을 분리해 2시터화하는 것으로, 21kg의 무게를 덜었고, 풀 버킷 시트 채용으로 24kg, M 카본 세라믹 브레이크나 전용 알루미늄 휠 등, 섀시의 변경으로 21kg, 차음재를 줄이고 경량 단열재 를 사용하여 15kg. 보닛과 트렁크 리드, 센터 콘솔에 탄소 섬유 강화 플라스틱 (CFRP)를 사용하여 11kg, 티타늄제 소음기로 4kg 등의 무게를 덜었다. 이렇게 해서 총 무게는 1,625kg으로 억제되었다.

 

 

파워트레인도 강화했다. 직분사 3.0리터 직렬 6기통 가솔린 트인터보 엔진의 터보 부스트 압력을 1.7bar에서 2.1bar로 끌어올렸다. 이 결과, 최고출력은 신형 M4 쿠페의 「콤페티션」보다, 40hp 높은 550hp/6250rpm까지 뿜는다. 최대토크는 66.3kgm으로 같지만, 2,750~5,950rpm의 보다 폭넓은 영역에서 만든다.

 

변속기는 "드라이브 로직」를 탑재한 8단 「M스텝 트로닉」이다. 동력 성능은 0~100km/h 가속이 0.2초 단축되어 3.7초에. 최고속은 290km/h에서 307km/h로 올랐다.

With its next-level power and intelligent lightweight design, two-seater configuration, model-specific chassis upgrades and equipment features selected specially for the job at hand, the new BMW M4 CSL has track driving as its raison d’être. The genes the M4 CSL shares with its competition-spec sibling, the BMW M4 GT3, are also reflected in its performance attributes. In test runs on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit, the BMW M4 CSL posted the fastest lap times ever for a series-produced BMW car. On the version of the track traditionally used for comparison purposes – which is 20.600 kilometres / 12.8 miles in length and doesn’t include the straight at section T13 – it stopped the clock at 7 min. 15.677 sec. Its official and notarised lap time for the 20.832-kilometres / 12.943-mile circuit (the complete lap) was 7 min. 20.207 sec. Acceleration figures of 3.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and 10.7 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) are similarly impressive.

“Competition, Sport, Lightweight”: a recipe with a rich tradition.

The stripped-back racing character of the BMW M4 CSL is underpinned by a time-honoured concept that harnesses cutting-edge development expertise and the latest technology to create an enthralling end result. “CSL” stands for “Competition, Sport, Lightweight”, referencing the critical role of weight-minimised design in achieving success in motor sport. The BMW 3.0 CSL developed by BMW Motorsport GmbH according to this same principle won the European Touring Car Championship at the first attempt in 1973. And the M4 CSL is also following in the tyre tracks of successful special-edition models from earlier generations of the BMW M3/M4, most notably the legendary BMW M3 CSL from 2003 and the BMW M4 GTS unveiled in 2016.

For BMW M GmbH, the world premiere of the new BMW M4 CSL at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este (20 – 22 May 2022) will be one of the highlights of its 50th anniversary year. Production of the special-edition model will begin – in a limited run of exactly 1,000 examples – at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing in July 2022.

Present and correct in the fundamentals and the details: intelligent lightweight design in the BMW M4 CSL.

Its talent for innovation and racing-car know-how enabled BMW M GmbH to restrict the special edition’s DIN kerb weight to 1,625 kilograms. A standout power-to-weight ratio of 2.95 kilograms per hp (4.01 kg/kW) provides the ideal platform for a dynamically sublime driving experience.

Fitting M Carbon full bucket seats reduced weight by around 24 kilograms on its own compared with the standard seats fitted in the BMW M4 Competition Coupé. 21 kilograms were saved by removing the rear seats and seat belts, integrating a partition and making the associated modifications to the luggage compartment. And chassis changes, including the addition of extra-lightweight M Carbon ceramic brakes and special light-alloy wheels, springs and struts, lowered the figure by around another 21 kilograms. Paring back the amount of soundproofing plus switching to ultra-lightweight sound insulation saved around 15 kilograms, while the use of components made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) deducted some eleven kilograms. For example, in addition to its CFRP roof, the bonnet and boot lid of the BMW M4 CSL are also hewn from this lightweight high-tech material, as is its centre console. And a titanium rear silencer cuts more than four kilograms from the weight of the exhaust system. Detail modifications to areas such as the BMW kidney grille, rear lights, floor mats and automatic climate control shave off another four kilograms.

Exclusive exterior paint finish, model-specific design features.

The body of the BMW M4 CSL is painted in the exclusive Frozen Brooklyn Grey metallic as standard. This exterior shade teams up with exposed carbon-fibre surfaces and red accents to create a visually expressive appearance of sporting purity. Alternatively, customers can specify their new M4 CSL in Alpine White solid or Sapphire Black metallic.

The carbon-fibre structure of the body components is visible in various areas, including the two chiselled indents in the bonnet. The surfaces of the indents – which are not painted in body colour – are highlighted additionally by red outlines. Red accent lines also bring extra emphasis to the two fins on the CFRP roof of the new BMW M4 CSL, the contours of its side sills, the black model badges, and the model-specific CFRP splitters and air curtain inserts in the front apron.

BMW Laserlight: yellow headlights and innovative rear lights.

The optionally available BMW Laserlight headlights bring another head-turning accent to the front end of the new BMW M4 CSL. Both in the welcome effect triggered when unlocking the doors and when the low and high beam are switched on, these headlights illuminate in yellow rather than white, bringing to mind the look of successful GT racing cars.

The LED rear lights of the new BMW M4 CSL are equipped as standard with technology making its debut in a series-produced car. Their glass covers have intricate light threads woven into them which are illuminated using laser technology, bringing a vibrant structure to the surface of the lights. This creates a highly distinctive light signature that is recognisable from a long distance during the hours of darkness.

Six-cylinder in-line engine with race-focused character.

The model-specific power unit of the BMW M4 CSL is based on the same high-revving, six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology found in the BMW M4 GT3 racing car. Its substantial performance reserves enabled a major hike in power without having to make any concessions in terms of stability or durability. Key to this power boost was an increase in the maximum charge pressure of the two mono-scroll turbochargers from 1.7 bar to 2.1 bar and model-specific tweaks to the engine management. The BMW M4 CSL’s engine develops peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) between 2,750 and 5,950 rpm. Its maximum output of 405 kW/550 hp is produced at 6,250 rpm.

The race-derived design of the 3.0-litre engine is focused squarely on high revs and maximum power development. The crankcase’s sleeve-free, closed-deck construction helps to make it extremely rigid, while the forged lightweight crankshaft allows it to handle extremely high levels of torque. Another special M-specific feature is the cylinder head core made using 3D printing techniques.

Both the cooling and oil supply systems are designed to handle the particular challenges presented by track driving. The twin-tailpipe exhaust system with electrically controlled flaps and weight-minimised titanium rear silencer additionally generates a racing-car-inspired, emotionally engaging engine note created especially for the new BMW M4 CSL.

The drive torque produced by the engine is relayed to the rear wheels of the new BMW M4 CSL via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. Model-specific mountings for the engine and transmission ensure the engine’s power is translated into dynamic performance in exceptionally rapid and direct fashion. The firmer connection of the engine and transmission to the car’s structure is clearly perceptible, especially under hard driving.

Optimised body rigidity, model-specific chassis technology.

Like the engine in the new BMW M4 CSL, its chassis technology benefits from a wealth of detail upgrades – which have been tailored to the power unit’s performance characteristics. These modifications also factor in the substantial reduction in vehicle weight at play here and the model-specific improvements to body rigidity, allowing the blend of handling agility, dynamism and precision for which BMW M cars are renowned to be taken to new heights.

In the engine compartment, a composition of front-end strut braces developed entirely from scratch raises the body rigidity of the new BMW M4 CSL up another level. Using numerical models, the geometry of the cast aluminium elements between the spring strut towers and the front end has been adapted precisely to the forces exerted in different driving situations.

The individually tuned axle kinematics and model-specific wheel camber settings, dampers, auxiliary springs and anti-roll bars optimise steering precision, transmission of lateral control forces when cornering, spring and damping response, and wheel location. The model-specific wheel suspension is accompanied by a drop in ride height of eight millimetres compared with the BMW M4 Competition Coupé. Also to be found on the standard equipment list for the special-edition model are adaptive M suspension with electronically controlled dampers, electromechanical M Servotronic steering with variable ratio and M Carbon ceramic brakes. An M-specific version of the integrated braking system offers the driver excellent pedal feel even when pushing the dynamic limits and in adverse road conditions.

M Traction Control optimised for the track.

The standard-fitted M Traction Control function with model-specific track tuning lets the driver set individual intervention thresholds for wheel slip limitation. On dry surfaces, stages 1 to 5 of M Traction Control help the driver to execute controlled drifts. Stages 6 to 10 are based on the application developed for touring car racers and make allowance for both surface conditions and tyre temperature to maximise traction and directional stability.

Also specified as standard are forged M light-alloy wheels in an exclusive cross-spoke design (19 inches at the front axle and 20 inches at the rear). These are fitted with high-performance tyres specially developed for the special-edition model in size 275/35 ZR19 (front) and 285/30 ZR20 (rear).

Equipment designed to provide a race-car feeling and everyday usability.

Model-specific equipment features give the BMW M4 CSL a distinctive balance between sports car purism, unrestricted everyday usability and exclusive premium substance. The M Carbon full bucket seats for the driver and co-driver are marked out by their self-supporting CFRP structure and purposeful rejection of comfort-enhancing features. They have a fixed backrest angle, forward/back adjustments can be made manually, and the seat height can only be adjusted in a workshop using a three-stage screw linkage. The M Carbon full bucket seats also have detachable head restraints and allow the integration of a six-point belt system.

The M Alcantara steering wheel, anthracite-coloured headliner, Carbon Fibre interior trim strips, “CSL” badges on the seats, centre console and rear panel, plus M-specific displays also help to create the perfect on-board setting for concentrated driving pleasure. Merino leather trim with extended features and M seat belts are also standard. Two helmet storage units can be found in the rear compartment.

The M-specific control/operation system includes the M Setup button for direct access to numerous vehicle settings and two M buttons on the steering wheel for storing preferred configurations. Standard equipment also features the M Drive Professional system including M Drift Analyser and M Laptimer, plus the M Mode button for activating the ROAD, SPORT and TRACK settings.

The likewise standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional comprises a fully digital screen grouping made up of an instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch screen diagonal behind the steering wheel and a 10.25-inch control display. Among its functions are the navigation system BMW Maps, the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, smartphone integration, telephony with wireless charging and a Wi-Fi interface. The BMW Head-Up Display with M-specific elements and the BMW Drive Recorder can be ordered from the options list.

The range of comfort-enhancing features and driver assistance systems fitted in the BMW M4 CSL are focused on the essentials, in keeping with its intelligent lightweight design approach and puristic vehicle concept. Standard specification includes automatic climate control, Park Distance Control, Front Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Speed Limit Info. Two-zone automatic climate control, an alarm, and the Driving Assistant and Parking Assistant systems are available as options.

Extensive model upgrades enhance driving dynamics, comfort and individuality.

The 2023 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 and Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S will receive technical and visual upgrades. In addition to design modifications, the standard AMG RIDE CONTROL+ based on Air Body Control suspension is improved. With the facelift, the successful AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is now more customizable than ever, which further strengthens its position as the perfect combination of AMG-developed dynamics with everyday usability. In addition, an extended choice of wheels, upholstery, trim and exterior colors are available for greater individualization. The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe V8 models will arrive at US dealerships later this year.

At first glance, the facelifted eight-cylinder models of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe can be recognized by the individually designed front fascia, which was launched with the new top model of the series, the GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE. It now appears even more streamlined and blends homogeneously into the dynamic design of the overall vehicle. The outer air intakes are wider and more pointed towards the center of the car. The airflow is now channeled through three vertical fins to the radiators.

"In the 4-Door Coupe segment, the Mercedes-AMG GT offers the perfect balance between everyday practicality and sportiness. On the one hand, it is the superior Gran Turismo for the whole family and, on the other, the current record holder on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in the Executive-cars category. As the fastest and most powerful medical car in Formula 1® history, the GT 63 S is also celebrating its debut this season and is ready to provide rapid emergency care with maximum race track performance. The diversity is also reflected in the wide range of drive options. In addition to six- and eight-cylinder engines, we also offer the first AMG hybrid in the E PERFORMANCE drive layout in this model series. To further sharpen our profile as a Performance Luxury brand, we have also expanded the options for individualization, thus offering our customers an even higher level of lifestyle and exclusivity," emphasizes Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

With the facelift of the six-cylinder models, the exterior colors Starling Blue Metallic and Starling Blue Magno were newly offered. These are also available for the V8 models. This gives the customer a choice of a total of four matte paints, five metallic shades and two solid colors. The expressive exterior design can be further accentuated with the new AMG Night Package II or a combination of the Night Package and AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber Package, for example. New colors and trims have also been added to the range for the interior, including the AMG Performance steering wheel.

The standard-fit AMG RIDE CONTROL+ based on Air Body Control suspension features adaptive, electronically controlled adjustable damping. This new damping system uses two pressure limiting valves. These continuously variable control valves, located outside the damper, allow the damping force to be adjusted even more precisely to different driving conditions and drive programs: one valve controls the rebound damping, i.e. the force that occurs when the wheel rebounds, and the other controls the compression damping when the wheel compresses. The rebound and compression stages are controlled independently of each other. This technology makes it possible to increase comfort on the one hand, but on the other also to make the driving dynamics even sportier. As a result, passengers are almost completely shielded from uneven road surfaces.

The suspension control unit analyzes data – including information from the acceleration and wheel path sensors – to adjust the damping force for each wheel in a few milliseconds to suit the situation. The AMG development engineers were able to significantly increase the spread between sportiness and comfort, among other things, by widening the gap between the minimum and maximum damping force characteristics and by providing even greater flexibility in map design. By using the two adjustment valves, the damper is able to provide damping force adjustment across the full range of wheel vibrations. Due to the special design of the valves, the damper reacts quickly and sensitively to changing road surfaces and driving conditions.

The driver can preselect the basic set-up via the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs. At the touch of a button, the handling characteristics change, for example, from full dynamics in "Sport+" mode to smooth cruising in the "Comfort" setting. In addition, the tuning can be adjusted in three stages independently of the drive programs via a dedicated button. 

The MANUFAKTUR label stands for the highest degree of individuality and luxury with selected materials that are predominantly processed by hand. For AMG GT 4-Door V8 models, this includes exclusive paintwork and high-quality interiors. A range of additional colors in the AMG GT portfolio has grown and now includes three MANUFAKTUR Signature Paint finishes, including MANUFAKTUR Arabian Grey, MANUFAKTUR Cashmere White Magno and MANUFAKTUR China Blue. Further additions to the MANUFAKTUR paint lineup will be available in subsequent years. For the interior, thanks to the MANUFAKTUR range, there are three additional choices with exclusive nappa leather in diamond quilting, including a two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel and AMG high-pile floor mats with embroidered AMG lettering have been added. Additional options for individualization be added in subsequent years.

이름하여 'GT-R T-spec'입니다. 'GT-R Premium edition T-spec'과 'GT-R Track edition engineered by NISMO T-spec'의 2 가지 타입입니다. 후자가 더 하드코어한 모델이에요. 원래는 'Trend Maker'와 'Traction Master'를 줄여 TM-spec으로 부를 예정이었는데, 뭔가 어색해 T-spec으로 변경했다는군요.

 

2022년형 GT-R을 베이스로 전용 카본 세라믹 브레이크, 카본 리어 스포일러, 전용 엔진 커버, 전용 배지(전면 후면)를 적용했습니다. 이외에 GT-R 프리미엄 에디션 T- 스펙에는 전용 인테리어 코디네이션을 실시했으며, 전용 레이즈 제 알루미늄 단조 휠을 달아 스프링 아래 무게를 줄이고 이에 맞춰 서스펜션 세팅을 최적화했습니다.

주행 성능을 추구한 GT-R 트랙 에디션 엔지니어링 by NISMO T- 스펙에는 전용 카본 루프 카본 스틸 트렁크 리드 (토리무레스, 가죽 풀 스트랩리스 사양)를 특별 장비했네요.

 

닛산은 두 모델을 합해 총 100대만 만들 예정입니다. 9월 15일부터 29일까지 예약을 받아 구매자가 100명을 넘으면 추첨한다고 합니다. 고객 인도 시기는 10월 하순이며, 기본이 1082 만 8400엔, 최상급은 1788 만 1600 엔 정도 하네요.

아우디가 콤팩트한 차체에 고성능을 자랑하는 신형 RS3 세단형을 공개했습니다. 기본형보다 그릴의 영역이 크게 확장되어 공격적이며, 범퍼 하단부의 공기흡입구도 짱장하네요.

 

헤드램프는 풀 LED 매트릭스 타입이고, 앞뒤 펜더가 확장되어 전보다 다부집니다. 후면부에는 넓게 확장된 디퓨저가 눈에 들어오며, 트렁크 립 스포일러로 포인트를 주었네요. 

 

이번 모델에서 가장 행복한 건 파워트레인입니다. 마니아라면 하이브리드화 되지 않을까 노심조사했을텐데요. 다행히 5기통 2.5리터 터보 차저 엔진을 달고 나왔네요. 최고출력은 400마력(PS)으로 라이벌 AMG A45 S보다 조금 낮지만 배기량이 주는 넉넉한 특성을 고려하면 실제 달리기에서는 무시할 수 없는 수준일 듯하네요. 공식 발표된 제로백은 3.8초입니다.

From 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, up to 290 km/h top speed, RS Torque Splitter, semi slicks, and specific RS driving modes – the new Audi RS 32 offers driving dynamics of the highest caliber and the best numbers in its segment. Equipped with a 294 kW (400 PS) five-cylinder, the high-performance engine delivers rapid acceleration with a highly intoxicating sound. The power unit now delivers 500 Nm of torque and responds even faster. Visually, the RS 32 demonstrates its sporty DNA with a widened body, RS sports exhaust system, and cockpit displays like those found in race cars.

 

“With the third generation of the Audi RS 3 Sportback3 and the second generation of the Audi RS 3 Sedan4, we now offer premium sports cars that are suitable for everyday use and equally thrilling to drive on public roads and racetracks,” says Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “They represent the entry point into our RS world and, thanks to the torque splitter, the ultimate in outstanding performance in the compact segment.”

Unmatched acceleration and top speed: the 2.5 TFSI

With its five-cylinder, high-performance engine, the Audi RS 32 is one-of-a-kind in the segment. The 2.5 TFSI has won the “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row. In the latest generation of the compact sports car, the engine is now more powerful than ever before. The new RS 3 models2 sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. Their top speed is limited to 250 km/h, but 280 km/h is also available as an optional upgrade. With the RS Dynamic package and ceramic brakes, they can even reach a top speed of 290 km/h. This makes the Audi RS 32 the best in its class in terms of acceleration and top speed. This is primarily due to the 500 Nm increase in torque, which is available between 2,250 and 5,600 rpm. That is equal to 20 Nm more than its predecessor. As a result, the Audi RS 32 accelerates even faster from low rev ranges.

The engine's maximum power of 294 kW (400 PS) is available earlier than before at 5,600 rpm and extends over a broad plateau to 7,000 rpm. A new engine control unit also increases the speed at which all of the drive components communicate with each other.

A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is what puts the power of the five-cylinder engine to the pavement – with short shifting times and a sportier gear ratio spread. The engine’s unique 1‑2‑4‑5-3 ignition sequence and the incomparable sound that comes with it make the driving experience that much more exhilarating. For the first time, the exhaust system features a fully variable flap control system that supports intermediate positions, thus broadening the sound characteristics even further. It can be adjusted via the driving dynamics system Audi drive select. In the Dynamic and RS Performance modes, for example, the flaps open much earlier – the emotional elements of the sound are even more pronounced. In addition, the unmistakable sound of the five-cylinder engine is further enhanced by the optional RS sports exhaust system.

Maximum agility: RS Torque Splitter and specific RS 3 modes

The new Audi RS 32 is the first Audi model that comes standard-equipped with a torque splitter. It replaces the rear axle differential and the previous multiple disc clutch package on the rear axle. Instead, an electronically controlled multiple disc clutch is used on each of the drive shafts. This ensures that the right amount of torque is optimally distributed along the rear axle. During more dynamic driving, the torque splitter increases the drive torque to the outer rear wheel with the higher wheel load, which significantly reduces the tendency to understeer. In left-hand curves, it transmits the drive torque to the right rear wheel, in right-hand curves to the left rear wheel, and when driving straight ahead to both wheels.

The new technology also makes controlled drifts on closed-off tracks possible – in this case, the torque splitter directs all of the power to only one of the rear wheels, with up to 1,750 newton meters per wheel possible. Audi even developed a driving mode specifically for the RS 32 for this purpose – “RS Torque Rear” – as a drift mode with its own characteristic curve for the torque splitter. The RS Performance mode, created specifically for the racetrack, is another never-before-seen innovation. It uses a specific engine and transmission configuration and is precisely tailored to the semi-slick tires that are, for the very first time, available for the RS 32 as a factory option. In this case, the torque splitter delivers a particularly dynamic, sporty ride along the longitudinal axis with as little understeer and oversteer as possible. These modes can be selected via the Audi drive select driving dynamics system, which also offers the following profiles: comfort, auto, dynamic, RS Individual, and efficiency.

More dynamic ride with greater precision: RS sports suspension and larger wheel camber

The standard RS sports suspension features newly developed shock absorbers and a valve system both specific to the RS 32. The valves ensure that the shock absorbers exhibit a particularly sensitive response as part of the rebound and compression characteristics. This allows the suspension to respond to the respective driving situation even faster and more effectively. The RS sport suspension plus with adaptive damper control is available as an option. It continuously and individually adjusts each shock absorber to the road conditions, the driving situation, and the mode selected in Audi drive select. The three characteristic curves comfortable, balanced, and sporty provide a clearly perceptible spread of the shock absorber characteristics.

The larger wheel camber, i.e. the wheels are angled more toward the road, results in a more precise steering response and increased cornering force. Compared to the Audi A3, the wheels on the front axle of the new RS 32 have just under one degree of additional negative camber. To achieve this, the pivot bearings were modified and the lower wishbones were equipped with stiffer bearings, subframes, and stabilizers. A rear axle features a four-link design with separate spring/damper arrangement, subframe, and tubular stabilizer bar. The wheel carriers, which are stiffer than those of the Audi A3 and S35, absorb the increased lateral forces generated by the torque splitter. The negative wheel camber here is almost half a degree more compared to the A3. The RS‑specific progressive steering varies the gear ratio depending on the steering angle – as the steering angle increases, the gear ratio becomes smaller and steering more direct. It also assists based on speed and can be varied via Audi drive select. The setup of the springs and shock absorbers is markedly stiff, and the body is ten millimeters lower than on the S35 and 25 millimeters lower than on the A3.

Another new addition to the RS 32 is the modular vehicle dynamics controller (mVDC). This central system captures data from all the components relevant to lateral dynamics, thus ensuring that they interact more precisely and more quickly. The mVDC synchronizes the torque splitter, adaptive dampers, and wheel-selective torque control for precise steering and handling. All in all, it increases the vehicle’s agility, especially on winding roads.

Powerful deceleration: six-piston steel and ceramic brake system

The RS 32 comes standard-equipped with larger and newly developed six-piston steel brakes to keep the power of the five-cylinder engine in check. A ceramic brake system measuring 380 by 38 mm is optionally available on the front axle with a pedal characteristic curve specially adapted to the brake booster. The high-performance brake system weighs another ten kilograms less than the steel brake. Its internally ventilated and drilled discs measure 375 by 36 mm at the front and 310 by 22 mm at the rear. This makes them larger and more stable than in the previous model. Air control elements improve the brakes’ cooling time by 20 percent. This more quickly reduces peak temperatures during hard braking while pedal feel remains the same. In addition, it also reduces brake pad wear, which are 15 percent larger and copper-free. Those who opt for the ceramic brakes can choose between gray, red, or blue brake calipers. Those who prefer the steel version can order red calipers instead of the black ones.

Expressive and unmistakable: exterior and lighting

The design of the new Audi RS 32 is even more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor. In the front, the wide RS bumper, the redesigned Singleframe with its distinctive honeycomb grille, and the large air intakes give the compact sports car an expressive appearance. The RS 32 comes standard-equipped with flat, wedge-shaped LED headlights and LED taillights including dynamic turn signal lights. Matrix LED headlights are available as an option, with darkened bezels that feature digital daytime running lights around their outer downturned angles. With its pixel field of 3 x 5 LED segments, it provides an unmistakable look – a checkered flag appears in the left headlight as a dynamic leaving and coming home scene, and the RS 32 lettering appears on the driver’s side. When driving, the checkered flag lights up on both sides.

There is also a new design element behind the front wheel arches: an eye-catching additional air outlet. The rocker panels with black trim have also been redesigned and, in combination with the flared wheel arches, contribute to the expressive look of the new RS 32. The front axle track has been widened by 33 millimeters compared to the previous model. On the Sportback, the rear axle track has increased by ten millimeters. The RS 32 is standard-equipped with 19-inch cast wheels in a 10-Y spoke design. True racing design is embodied by the optionally available 5‑Y spokes with RS branding. Audi will also mount Pirelli P Zero “Trofeo R” performance semi-slick tires for the first time, if desired. The motorsports-inspired finishing touches include the redesigned RS-specific rear bumper with integrated diffuser and the RS exhaust system with two large oval tailpipes.

The new Audi RS 32 models can be ordered in two exclusive RS colors: Kyalami green and Kemora gray. The roof of the Sedan can also be ordered in the contrasting color Brilliant black for the first time. Individual exterior features, such as the honeycomb grille in the Singleframe, come standard in black – either in a matte or high-gloss finish. The Alu-Optic Trim package is available as an option and accentuates the front bumper, diffuser insert, and window trim. For an even sportier look, the rocker panel inlays are also available in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. The same applies to the mirror caps, the tailgate spoiler on the Sedan and the roof edge spoiler on the Sportback.

Genuine racing feeling: the interior

In the interior, too, many elements specific to the RS accentuate its sportiness. The displays appear in the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus, which comes standard. It displays the rpms in the form of a bar graph and shows power and torque as percentages. The rpm display in the “RS Runway” design is new. Here, the values are displayed in the opposite direction in a manner that visually resembles an airplane runway – the highest speed in the foreground and the lowest speed in the background. In addition, the Audi virtual cockpit plus includes displays for g‑forces, lap times and acceleration from 0‑100 km/h, 0-200 km/h, quarter mile, and eighth of a mile.

The RS-specific blinking shift indicator in manual transmission mode changes the rpm display from green to yellow to red, blinking in a manner identical to that used in motorsports, to indicate the ideal time to change gears. The 10.1-inch touch display includes what is referred to as the “RS Monitor,” which displays the coolant, engine, and transmission oil temperatures as well as tire pressures. Also available for the first time for the Audi RS 32 is a head-up display that projects relevant information onto the windshield in the driver's direct line of sight in addition to the shift light indicator.

The genuine racing feeling is further enhanced by the carbon inlay in the instrument panel and RS sport seats with RS embossing and anthracite contrast stitching. The seat upholstery is optionally available in fine Nappa leather with RS honeycomb stitching and glossy black, red, or, for the first time, green contrast stitching. RS Design packages in red and green are available to match. They include special floor mats with contrast stitching and RS embroidery, as well as seatbelts with colored edges. The Design package plus includes seat corners in red or green and a colored accents on the air vents.

Everything under control: steering wheel with 12 o’clock stripe and RS Mode button

The RS 32 is standard-equipped with a three‑spoke RS Sport multifunctional leather steering wheel with a flattened bottom. It features built-in, high-quality die-cast zinc shift paddles. Those who opt for the Design package get, in addition to the RS badge, a 12 o’clock stripe for faster indication of the steering wheel position during dynamic driving. Alternatively, a round RS steering wheel is available with hands-on detection, i.e. capacitive grip recognition, for assisted steering functions. Both have the new RS Mode button on the right-hand steering wheel spoke in common. This button can be used to select the Audi drive select modes RS Performance, RS Individual, or the last mode used. In both RS modes, the display of the instruments and the head‑up display has an even sportier look with a blinking shift indicator.

Availability: market launch and pricing

The Audi RS 3 Sportback3 and RS 3 Sedan4 will be available to order in Europe starting in mid‑July 2021. The new RS 3 models2 will be launched in the fall of this year. The base price for the RS 3 Sportback3 is set at 60,000 euros, while the RS 3 Sedan4 is listed at 62,000 euros.
