Geneva 2017: TOP10 Premieres
Today is the last day of Geneva 2017 and to sum up tuningnewsnet compiled TOP10 list of the motorshow premieres.
10. Porsche 911 GT3
In the new generation of the radical 911, the connection between everyday driving and the racetrack is even more intense. At the heart of the latest enhancement beats a four-litre flat engine. The extremely high-revving naturally aspirated engine with 368 kW (500 hp; Fuel consumption combined 12.7–12.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 288–290 g/km) remains virtually unchanged from the thoroughbred 911 GT3 Cup racing car. The redesigned chassis with rear-axle steering and the systematic lightweight construction are specifically tuned to convert the engine power into superior driving dynamics. Developed on the same test track and manufactured on the same production line as the racing cars, Porsche's motorsport technology has once again been incorporated into a road-approved sportscar.
9. Brabus 550 Adventure 4x4
The world's largest independent vehicle refinement specialist presents an exclusive extreme off-roader of superlatives under this label. Based on the Mercedes G 500 4x4, the engineers and designers of BRABUS developed a cross-country vehicle with an output of 404.8 kW / 550 HP (542 bhp) that not only looks great on the world's magnificent boulevards, but is also superbly suited for automotive adventures far off paved roads and thereby does credit to its "ADVENTURE" designation.

The thirdmodel series after the SLS AMG and AMG GT is now being completely autonomously developed at the company's headquarters in Affalterbach. The designation and fundamental design elements on the front and tail end denote the family affiliation to the AMG GT. The"EQ Power+" identifier on the mirror cam indicates the increased performance that can be expected from hybridisation at AMG.
