Audi Prologue Concept: A9 is advanced - Live from Los Angeles Auto Show 2014


The Los Angeles Auto Show is an opportunity for Audi to unveil a concept that foreshadows both his new stylistic direction, but also a future model, the A9. And drew the world, many ...

On the stand of the mark on the rings, it's the excitement ... There crowd, it's mass and it applauds the end of the press conference ... But what good can cause this?
Response 45 minutes later, when he finally becomes possible to take pictures of the concept ... "Prologue", guilty of so much agitation.

I must say it announces the new Audi style on the one hand, and as a future model, competitor of the Mercedes S-Class coupe, the A9.

The proportions are worthy of those starry cut, indeed. The length of 5.10, the width of 1.95 m require. It is obviously the huge chrome grille slat glaring at first glance. A huge mouth that would increase that of 3008 (before facelift) for a very shy. Very sharp and beveled, it seems to swallow everything that is presented to it.
The rear section is equally impressive, with a band of light that covers the entire width. LEDs are obviously the game, as the flashing dynamic scrolling. This band and the rear pillars fell uncannily evokes late last 9-5 while the trunk lid, concave, said he, a Citro├źn C6 ...!

The interior is clean, no frills. We discover a screen in front of the driver and a second passenger in front, embedded in the dashboard panel. The center tunnel is bulky and extends to the back 4 which limits the number of passengers.


Mechanical side, the Prologue retains the 4.0 V8 biturbo, in an evolution of 605 hp. Which would according to the manufacturer a 0-100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, but 199 g of CO2 per km away (8.7 liters average consumption). Finally, the frame adopts a 5-link rear suspension and four wheel steering. As a ... Renault Laguna 4Control.

Be essentially selected on the American show is undoubtedly the car (well the concept) that has had the most success. It took patience to bring you live pictures ...


Maybach Mercedes S-Class: Renaissance - Live from Los Angeles Auto Show 2014


Daimler had raised the prestige brand Maybach in 2002, before burying it again in 2013. However, it is still a kind of renaissance that we are witnessing. Indeed Mercedes presents this year in Los Angeles a S600 Version "Maybach" of its sedan lux.

But it's not the brand that is reborn only the name. Must be considered in reality this new name as a new "finish" great luxury applied to the S-Class
Mercedes already explained to us the release of its latest S they wanted to compete with Rolls-Royce, and therefore, she went on a little concept of Maybach.
This is even more the case with this "super S-Class." Twenty centimeters longer than the longest S-Class, so it rises to 5.44 m! Enough to take his ease at the back, where we discover two seats "Executive" that can lie completely or almost in the manner of classes case by plane. There also also screens and tablets, heating function, massage, fridge, brief, total.

The level of overall finish is still a notch above the "normal" S-Class, which had already set the bar very high. Stitched leather, crafted almost wholes where hands may arise keys aluminum and wood. We are not yet at Rolls, but Mercedes is still strong admittedly.
The equipment is bloated, basically everything that is optional on the S becomes standard here: connectivity, automation, Magic Body Control suspension, hi-fi system Burmeister, etc.

To move the ship, you are entitled to 6.0 V12 biturbo 530 hp and 830 Nm of torque. And it is even rumored that the S Maybach will be powered by the V12 version AMG (AMG 65) 630 hp, allowing it to swallow the 0 to 100 in 4.3 s ...

These are primarily the Chinese customers who have the honor of this version (it is also at this very moment presented at the show in Guangzhou China also) in February 2015, before Europe is served a little more later. The price was not disclosed, but know that the "normal" S-Class rises to € 185,000, it will be ... much more!
