New Mercedes Models, Hoonigan Gymkhana 9 & Toddlers excitement at MotoGP
This week Mercedes introduced a few new models ahead of the Paris Motor Show. Firstly they have taken the inspiration from the Enter-G-Force concept from back in 2012 and advanced on it including similar styling from the Mercedes G Wagon. The Mercedes GLB will be a middle ground between the GLA & GLC models which are already gaining popularity. But don't go rushing to get one as the 4x4 model wont be released until 2019.
Also the much awaited and teased Mercedes AMG GT Roadsters have been released this week just in time for the Show on the 1st October. The soft top variant of AMG's flagship is available in two versions, increasing the AMG GT Family to five models. But impressively these new models have more power & torque than the equivalent hardtop and features chassis technology from the hardtop GT R. These beauties can kick out some power! The entry level AMG GT Roadster develops 469bhp from its 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine, that's 13bhp more than the hardtop. Although above that sits the AMG GT C Roadster with 549bhp! Like all the AMG GT models it uses the Mercedes Seven-speed Dual-clutch auto gearbox. Offical pricing is yet to be announced but it is likely that the base model is to start from £100,000 & the GT C will top the £120,000 mark.
Ken block is known for many things in the Motorsport community- Co-founder of DC Shoes, Extreme sports and rallying. But recently his Hoonigan Gymkhana videos have been taking the internet by storm. His most recent dice with death (which is the only way to look at his incredible stunt work) involves a Ford Focus RS RX which stores a crazy 600hp! He manages to spin the Focus RS RX in front of a train as if its nothing more than an average trip to the shops. Watch the whole video here.
Finally we take a look at this fantastic viral video of Two year old Logan Cox which has circulated the web for the past week or so. A dedicated motorcycle fan from such a young age, Logan was treated to a day out at Silverstone MotoGP. Clearly the excitement got the better of Logan resulting in this sweet clip, take a look!
