Some really cool news out of Reebok came to the forefront this week. Reebok Classic announces the addition of international pop star Ariana Grande, supermodel Sharina Gutierrez and rap-duo Rae Sremmurd to the next iteration of its Always Classic Spring/Summer 2018 campaign, showing the world what it means to be Always Classic with the new Classic Leather Flexweave.

A brand that fiercely believes in those who challenge expectations and push their creative boundaries, Reebok’s new Always Classic campaign brings together the most disruptive and authentic style pioneers of this generation and unites them with Reebok Classic’s iconic Franchise Four collective: the Freestyle Hi, Classic Leather, Club C and Workout Plus. First up celebrating the newest silhouette, the Classic Leather Flexweave, a reimagining of the iconic Reebok Classic sneakers, are Ariana Grande, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi.

Meet The New Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe

More space, more power, more goosebumps – the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe delivers driving experiences in new dimensions and extends the AMG model family. The new Coupe is the  first four-door sports car from Affalterbach and draws directly on the legendary SLS and AMG GT models of success. As another vehicle developed autonomously by Mercedes-AMG, it combines unique design, high comfort and outstanding sports car engineering with an athletic, four-door fastback layout. This means that it offers more space and even greater versatility. It thus offers more space and more potential uses. The systematic expansion of the AMG GT family with the 4-Door Coupe opens up the sports car segment to those looking for a vehicle for day-to-day use, but who are unwilling to go without the unparalleled performance of Mercedes-AMG.

Longitudinal and lateral dynamics at the highest level and a striking silhouette with classical proportions immediately put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in the portfolio of its two-door brother at first glance. The expressive design with a low hood, dominant front and muscular body language emphasizes the sporty genes of the four-door coupe, which sets new standards as the latest model in the AMG family. The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe combines high everyday comfort with diverse individualization options and the latest sports car engineering.

“The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe blends the impressive racetrack dynamism of our two-door sports car with maximum suitability for everyday use. It has a unique way of embodying our brand core, “Driving Performance” and with its systematic configuration it will attract new customers for Mercedes-AMG,” commented Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe delivers special driving experiences on all levels, and with a top speed of up to 195 mph it ensures superior performance in any situation. Powerful, up-to-date in-line 6-cylinder and V8 engines with outputs ranging from 429 hp to 630 hp allow completely new driving experiences and combine impressive performance with modern efficiency.

The interior of the first four-door AMG GT model is characterized by elegant coolness and also by ultra-modern features: innovative controls can be intuitively operated and configured as required. The blend of high individualization and sports car technology, placing yet more focus on the requirements of discerning customers, is also clear from the wealth of equipment packages and individual options. Moreover, the latest addition to the family from Affalterbach also lives up to the Mercedes-AMG brand pledge with regard to its high driving dynamics and sets the benchmark in its segment on the racetrack too.

Ford Showcases the Mustang GT California Special

There is some interesting news coming the the folks over at Ford. America’s favorite sports car gets even more style and technology for 2019 thanks to the revival of the legendary Mustang GT California Special, new features including rev-matching on 5.0-liter 6-speed manual-equipped models, the first-ever custom-tuned B&O PLAY premium audio system for Mustang, three new vintage-inspired colors and over-the-top stripes.

“No doubt, 2019 is an exciting year for Mustang enthusiasts, especially fans of our California Special and BULLITT models,” said Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager. “This year further targets hardcore enthusiasts who want even more performance from BULLITT, while new technology – including rev-matching on manual transmission-equipped Mustang GT and active valve performance exhaust on the EcoBoost® model – means even more thrills.”

When Mustang first hit the streets in 1964, owners clubs sprang up around the country, with many regional dealers creating their own personalized pony car designs. One – inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype – came to be called the California Special.

That original version featured blacked-out grille, fog lamps and a side racing stripe that ended ahead of a new rear fender scoop. It wore a Shelby-inspired spoiler, custom taillamps and twist-lock hood fasteners. Impressed, Ford put a limited number of California Special cars into production for 1968. Before long, the California Special had joined the ranks of Shelby, Boss and Mach 1 special-edition Mustangs.

Today, the 2019 California Special for Mustang GT is a visual standout, featuring a trademark fading stripe that traces from the 5.0 side badge to the rear fender scoop. A signature Ebony Black and Race Red script California Special badge adorns the trunk lid. At the front, the car follows the blacked-out open grille and picks up the Mustang Performance Pack 1 splitter. The California Special wears unique five-spoke painted machined wheels.

Inside are rich black Miko® suede-trimmed seats with embossed GT/CS insignia and contrast red accent stitching, along with custom embroidered GT/CS floor mats. Signature California Special script badging appears on the passenger-side dash panel.

“Few things are more satisfying than dropping the top on a California Special and taking a drive down the majestic Pacific Coast Highway,” said Mark Conforzi, Ford designer. “This signature design takes its cues from the original California Special, while enhancing the personality of today’s Mustang.”
