New Ghibli Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle in Maserati’s history

The new Ghibli Hybrid represents one of the most ambitious projects for Maserati, The choice to introduce the hybrid technology on the Ghibli saloon is no coincidence: this model, with over 100,000 units produced since its launch in 2013, perfectly embodies the Modena-based manufacturer’s DNA.

720-hp V8 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is extremely powerful

This is the new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series - a car that packs the most powerful series-production V8 engine that AMG has yet made. Directly inspired by the AMG GT3 race cars, it is fitted with a 720-hp V-8 engine and a plethora of changes that set it apart sharply from any other AMG GT, including the wild GT R. The result is a claimed 0-62mph time of 3.2sec, 0-124mph in 9.0sec and a top speed of 202mph (325kmph). The M178 engine, a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, has been modified so extensively that it receives its own identifier, now called the M178 LS2. A major change is the move away from a cross-plane crankshaft. The LS2 now uses a lighter, flat-plane crankshaft that spins more freely to allow for even more aggressive throttle response. The LS2 features a di...
