Toyota Crown 擁有 65 年經典歷史,無奈受到用車環境衝擊,就算今年剛推出小改款,銷量始終不見起色,讓 Crown 地位岌岌可危,甚至傳出即將停產消息,不過豐田似乎不想放棄 Crown 車系,據當地日本多方消息指出,Crown 有望轉型成全新休旅,救救它低迷的人氣。

小改款 Crown 今年才剛推出,但銷量始終不見起色。

Crown 一名曾在日本相當響亮,集結 65 年結晶,現行款於 2013 年發表的第 15 代 Crown,可是豐田集團旗下定位高級房車指標,但受到 SUV 熱潮衝擊,銷量日漸下滑的 Crown,據傳即將化身成休旅,來為 Crown 車系續命。

多數日媒指出 Crown 化身成休旅車可能性相當大。《此為 Crown SUV 預想圖。》

就連日本知名《中日新聞》也在暗示指出 Crown 將會出現休旅延伸作品,屆時 Crown 休旅車,預計會從現行專為中大型後驅房車所開發的 TNGA-N 底盤,改成 TNGA-K 平台打造,有望成為新的全球戰略車。

Crown 休旅車仍會主打高階豪華市場,並預計擁有 3 排 7 人座設定,外觀將傳承經典皇冠廠徽,畢竟這可是 Crown 車系經典代表象徵。

Alpine and MV Agusta have joined forces to create a limited edition motorcycle inspired by the A110.

Dubbed the Superveloce Alpine, the model has an eye-catching blue livery which “exactly matches that of the current A110.” The limited edition motorcycle also sports Alpine badging and logos as well as CNC-machined wheels with a black finish.

Other highlights include a black Alcantara seat with contrast blue stitching. The model also has French and Italian flag motifs on either side of the front fender.

Power is provided by a 798cc three-cylinder engine that produces 145 hp (108 kW / 147 PS) and 65 lb-ft (88 Nm) of torque. If that’s not enough, a racing kit adds a revised ECU and an Arrow exhaust to increase the output to 151 hp (113 kW / 153 PS). Regardless of the output, the engine is connected to a six-speed transmission which enables the bike to hit a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h).

Sticking with the performance theme, the Superveloce Alpine has an aluminum swing arm, Brembo front brakes and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II tires. The model also features carbon fiber and titanium components as well as a 5-inch digital display.

According to MV Agusta CEO Timur Sardarov, “Many Alpine customers are also big MV Agusta fans, and vice-versa.” This made the bike a no-brainer and Sardarov added, “We look forward to this collaboration with one of the most admired brands in the history of motorsport, and are confident that this new, superb limited edition will be met with enthusiasm by bikers and motorsport fans around the world.”

Production will be limited to 110 units and Italian pricing starts at €36,300 including the racing kit.

Cadillac has provided the first glimpse of the manual transmission that will be used in the CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwings.

While the teaser image isn’t very revealing, it shows the cars will be equipped with a six-speed manual that features a leather-wrapped shifter. The latter is topped by a 3D-printed medallion which has a flag motif inspired by the V-Series logo.

Cadillac didn’t say much about the transmission, but promised it will be “quieter and more durable” than the six-speed manual found in the ATS-V and CTS-V. The company also noted the CT4-V Blackwing will be the only sedan in its segment to offer a manual, while a ten-speed automatic will be optional on both.

According to Cadillac’s performance variant manager, Mirza Grebovic, “A lot of work went into making the manual possible in both vehicles. It’s something we know V-Series buyers want and it’s something we knew we had to have, so we used innovative processes to make it happen.”

Speaking of the latter, Cadillac used “additive manufacturing” to reduce costs and waste when developing the gearbox. The company also noted the medallion won’t be the only 3D-printed component as the cars will also have 3D-printed air ducts and an electrical harness bracket.

While manuals have fallen by the wayside, Cadillac pointed to a Harris Poll which found that 66% of American adults know how to drive a stick.  Furthermore, 55% have either owned or leased a vehicle with a manual transmission.

The same study also found that roughly 40% of people who don’t know how to drive a stick, are either somewhat or very interested in learning. That number jumps to 62% for people who are between the ages of 18-34, and 64% when looking at households with an annual income of at least $75,000.

The Blackwings will arrive next summer and the CT4-V variant is expected to have a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 that produces more than 464 hp (346 kW / 470 PS) and 445 lb-ft (603 Nm) of torque. Likewise, the CT5-V Blackwing could have a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with around 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque. Cadillac has already hinted this will enable the car to hit a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
