powered by www.drop.com.ng  from tweeterest digital Since the Mercedes-AMG GT debuted a few years back, the long-running SL-Class has taken a bit of a backseat in the German automaker's lineup. It's no longer the flagship two-door model, and, outside of a facelift in 2017, has remained relatively unchanged since the R231 chassis debuted in 2012. For 2020, a full eight years after the roadster debuted, Mercedes-Benz is introducing the SL Grand Edition for the SL 450 and 550 models. The SL 450 and SL 550 Grand Edition follow other Grand Edition models, including last year's GLS and the CL and SLK from a few years back, that usually are offered just before a model is shown the door. The SL Grand Edition comes in Graphite Grey with chrome and matte silver trim. The cars come with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear AMG 10-spoke forged wheels finished in bright silver with black inner spokes. "SL Grand Edition" badges can be found on the fender vents, mudguards, floor mats and headrests. The Tundra Brown Pearl leather has gold piping, mirroring the gold on the badges. All SL Grand Editions come with the optional sport suspension, lowering the ride by 10mm. The Grand Edition package is only available on the 362-horsepower V6-powered SL 450 and 449-horsepower V8-powered SL 550 (dubbed the SL 400 and 500 in Europe, hence the badge on the trunk in the photos). Mercedes-AMG SL 63 owners will have to drown their sorrow with their roadster's 577 horsepower and 664-pound feet of torque. Though there are rumors of a new model coming in the next few years, a long lifespan is nothing new for the SL. The third-gen R107 — built from 1971 to 1989 — holds the distinction of being the second-longest-running model Mercedes-Benz has ever built, only behind the original G-Class.

Renault EZ-Ultimo Concept : An autonomous pod for all

 
The Paris Motor Show wouldn’t be complete without at least one wacky looking concept car from a French automaker and this year Renault didn’t disappoint with the EZ-Ultimo Concept. Looking like a cross between a large beetle and a bus, this living room on wheels offers Level 4 autonomy, and as a result, with no traditional steering wheel or driver’s position, turns its entire cabin over to its occupants.

BMW Reveals the 2019 3 Series

On the first media day of the 2018 Paris Auto Show, BMW unveiled the 2019 BMW 3 Series to the world motoring press. The seventh-generation 3 Series continues BMW’s most successful model, which stretches back to 1976 in the United States, when it arrived as a successor to the 2002. The 3 Series established itself as the world’s biggest-selling premium car, making the birth of a new generation into a notable event. 330i and 330i xDrive models will arrive in the US in March 2019; M340i and M340i xDrive are slated to arrive later in the spring. A plug-in hybrid version of the 3 Series, 330e, is promised for 2020.

2018 Infiniti Project Black S Bows

As a follow-up to a similar concept unveiled a year ago, Infiniti showed the 2018 Infiniti Project Black S in Paris fully realized with the help of its Renault partner’s Formula One team. Envisioned as an Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 on steroids, the Project Black S coupe incorporates three motor generating units that recapture kinetic energy and helps boost output of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6.
