World record for the BUGATTI Chiron: the 1,500 PS super car has accelerated from a standing start to 400 km/h (249 mph) and braked back to a standstill in just 42 seconds (41.96). This is the fastest time ever reached and officially measured for this driving manoeuvre for a production vehicle throughout the world. The Chiron completed the manoeuvre in a distance of only 3.112 kilometres. This underscores the supercar’s unique position in the extreme performance range. The world record was set by Juan Pablo Montoya, winner of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, two-time winner of the Indy 500 and three-time winner of the 24 hours of Daytona. The 0-400-0 manoeuvre is the first step on the way to a new world speed record for production vehicles which Bugatti intends to set in 2018 and a further highlight in the success story of the Chiron. Please note: The video shows the actual 0-400-0 run in real time, so it is 41.96 seconds long.
Toyota's best selling vehicle in North America is the RAV4. For 2019, the RAV4 gets redesigned on the New TNGA. Not only is it bigger and more stylish, it also gets more capable and now resembles more of an SUV . We get a first look at the New York International Autoshow 2018.
All-New Robust Design and Unparalleled Driving Experience 2.5L Inline-4 and Toyota Hybrid System Powertrains Offering More Power and MPG TNGA K Platform with Multi-Link Rear Suspension Standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0) Debut of All-New Sporty Hybrid Grade, XSE Hybrid Standard Entune 3.0 with Wi-Fi Connect powered by Verizon, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay Compatibility True Off-Road Capabilities with Available Multi-Terrain Select and an Available Toyota-First, Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect Arriving winter 2018, the all-new Toyota RAV4 is ready to hit the hot spots downtown or the hot springs out of town—and everywhere in between. Whether you go for the premium Limited, stylish XSE Hybrid or rugged
Adventure grade, there's a RAV4 just for you. So get set to discover new places, whenever and wherever you want. Limited Standard 19-in. wheels and 8-in. touch-screen raise RAV4's level of sophistication, inside and out. Adventure Grade Capable on- and off-road with Multi-terrain Select and Dynamic Torque-Vectoring AWD with Rear Driveline Disconnect. XSE Hybrid The sportiest RAV4 yet, XSE Hybrid offers greater horsepower, faster acceleration, a sport-tuned suspension and, of course, higher MPG. The power source for RAV4’s driving abilities comes from one of two powertrains: Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine with VVT-iE mated to an 8-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission, which motivates the five gas models Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder Toyota Hybrid System II (THS II) engine with Electronically-Controlled Continuously-Variable Transmission (ECVT), which activates the four hybrid models On- and Off-Road Fun For explorers looking to satisfy their outdoorsy cravings, RAV4 Adventure has the capabilities for all types of off-road fun. RAV4 Adventure is distinguishable among the other grades with its standard high-rise roof rails and large over-fenders. Inspired by Toyota’s off-road vehicle heritage, RAV4 Adventure grade has a more rugged exterior, thanks in part to its more aggressive grille, fog light surrounds, and unique wheel design. It answers the call designers had of Robust with its stout stance, standard Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect, and a reliable and tough functionality that’s apt for any road.
The fun ratchets up once pavement blends into dirt thanks to Multi-Terrain Select. Standard on all AWD-equipped gas RAV4 models, Multi-Terrain Select gives drivers the ability to maximize traction when driving through snow, mud, sand, or rocks. The system is easy to use thanks to a control dial (or buttons) positioned in the center console to the left of the shift knob. Get Up and Go! For the all-new RAV4, designers kept in mind design elements of Adventure and Refined to allow owners to get up and go in their RAV4, no matter the time or place.
An emphasis was placed on maximizing the presence of a small SUV while maintaining high levels of finesse inside and out. Each body panel has a sophisticated twist to it, with a chiseled appearance that is a perfect combination of athleticism and charisma. The stronger nose leads into a more dynamic profile, robust shoulders, and available 19-inch wheels, making for a powerful stance ready to tackle any road, any time. The implementation of the TNGA platform allows RAV4 to adopt the charisma of a bolder and tougher SUV, but in a package that is lower and wider. The longer wheelbase and wider front and rear tracks provide a stable, confident driving platform.
For off-road prowess, the shorter front and rear overhangs will aid in RAV4’s ability to overcome rugged terrain. The unibody chassis is 57 percent more rigid than the outgoing version. RAV4 incorporates an optimally tuned multi-link rear suspension, providing ideal damping for handling, minimum interior cabin noise, and the utmost ride comfort. Ground clearance has been increased by more than half an inch, yet RAV4 is able to achieve improved aerodynamics. The relocated side mirrors are now positioned lower on the door for increased forward visibility around the A-pillar. Side visibility is increased thanks to a lowered beltline and the redesigned and enlarged rear-quarter glass assists with rear-diagonal visibility.
