Clutch motoring in your Malay Mail this morning
Inside today mornings issue of Clutch we have the test drive review of the all new Mercedes A-Class and news on the big Volkswagen discount program and more.
The revolutionary NSX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD power unit and its advanced dynamic capabilities are supported by new concepts in supercar design and body construction. The NSX’s multi-material body/frame is a clean-sheet design, utilizing a multitude of materials and joining technologies, each chosen for its unique capability to deliver ultimate global and local body rigidity in combination with low mass, outstanding visibility and world-class occupant crash protection. The NSX’s multi-material body integrates several world-first technologies, including three-dimensionally bent and quenched ultra-high-strength steel A-pillars and ablation cast aluminum frame nodes.
Likewise, the design and packaging of the Sport Hybrid power unit’s components—engine, transmission, motors, batteries and control systems—is optimized to support and enhance its dynamic capabilities by lowering the center of gravity and centering the mass within the car.
