A FEW ofPorschesmost power-ful street-legal 911s,the GT2 RS,should arrive in Australia inabout three months.
Power is up 60kW on the reg-ular GT2 to an eye-watering456kW and mass has beentrimmed to 1370kg.
Despite the extra power andperformance, fuel consumptionand CO2 emissions versus the911 GT2 are down by 5 per centto 11.9 litres/100km and 284g/km.
The 3.6litre six-cylinderboxer engine has two tur-bochargers with variable tur-bine geometry. Power is fed tothe rear wheels via a six-speedmanual gearbox and the car hasenormous tyres developed espe-cially for it: 325/30 ZR 19 at therear, enabling acceleration from0 to 100km/h in 3.5seconds and atop speed of 330km/h.
The interior features carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic bucketseats, lightweight door panels,and a black interior with redcontrasts.
Production of the 911 GT2RS, which lapped the famedNrburgring-Nordschleife in7m 18s, will be limited to 500worldwide. A small number hasbeen confirmed for Australia.
Local deliveries will start inSeptember, with pricing to beconfirmed around that time.
WITH the arrival of more effi-cient direct injection petrol four-cylinder engines, Mercedes-Benzhas taken the opportunity toboost the value argument for itspopular C-Class model.
Called CGi for Charged Gaso-line Injection, the new enginesare at the bottom of the C-Classrange in the C200CGi and theC250CGi.
Both are 1.8litre turbo fours re-placing a 1.8litre superchargedfour in the previous model.
The difference between the 200and 250 is in power output thanksto differing tune with the entrylevel 200 boasting a healthy135kW/270Nm output, signifi-cantly up on the earlier super-charged unit and the 250CGiboasting 150kW/310Nm.
Both engines deliver maxi-mum torque at lower revs thanthe supercharged unit and bothuse less fuel as well as generatinglower emissions.
The turbo is a variable vaneunit breathing through an inter-cooler while the engines operateon a high compression ratio tovirtually eliminate turbo lag.
Benz has taken the opportuni-ty to equip these cars with itsBlueEfficiency measures for lowfuel consumption and emissions.
It means they have low rollingresistance tyres, decoupling alter-nator, aircon compressor andpower steering pump, blanking tothe grille, a flat under tray andimproved aerodynamics specifi-
cally to make them more efficient.Weight reduction measures suchas a thinner windscreen andsmaller fluid reservoirs.
Safety has been boosted with aknee-air bag standard, adaptive(flashing) brake lights, optimisedseat belt tension and LED frontdriving lights on some models.
C-Class has been around since2007 and is now in middle age. Atotally new car is due in a fewyears.
Equipment upgrades haveflowed from a better exchangerate that has seen the Euro deval-ue by more than 20 per cent to theAussie dollar in the past year.
Rather than cut the price of itscars, Benz has chosen to hold theline on price, boost equipmentlevels and keep on side with cur-rent owners, many of whom havebeen Benz owners for years.
Wheels size has gone up to astarting point of 17-inch while theAvant Garde three slat grill withintegrated Mercedes-Benz badgeis now standard across the range.
Split folding rear seats arestandard and dual cup holdersmake an appearance.
Higher models gain additionalequipment including, leather,GPS, 18-inch wheels, bi-xenonheadlights and premium audio onsome models.
The C300 V6 petrol does not getdirect fuel injection. A range ofturbo diesel models is also avail-able, each with the same up-grades outlined for the petrolmodels.
At the same time as thesechanges, theres a new SLK 300sports coupe with the same V6 en-gine as the C300 V6 petrol.
Its the last hurrah for the cur-
rent SLK that will be replacedwithin 12 months with a com-pletely new car with CGi engines.
The $98,600 SLK300 is fittedwith a seven-speed auto transmis-sion featuring paddle shift on thesteering wheel. Also included isan AMG sports package.
We took the two CGi C-Classmodels and the SLK300 for a spinand can report all three are guar-anteed to put a smile on your face,particularly the C250CGi.
It has performance on par witha 3.0 litre petrol V6, possiblystronger, but the base C200CGi issufficient for everyday motoring.
The SLK offers good perfor-mance but isnt nearly as crisp asthe SLK350 that sells for substan-tially more money. If we werebuying, it would be the C250CGipetrol or the C220CDi diesel at thetop of the list. Impressive cars.
