Helau and Alaaf, dear friends of the carnival today on Carnival Monday. We are pleased that your self in the great days gives some time your favorite hobby and you click on this blog. We want then artgerecht not spend as much time with chestnut but go directly to the core question of the lower line of the heading: What connects the smart fortwo Cabriolet with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and its open offshoot? The fact that both are from the Daimler Group, we know that, and you certainly. We are concerned however about identifying backgrounds where smart us has to share and which we want to call on the occasion of the entrance of the new convertibles in our trading program: Norev has used the license to decrease the two-seater to build great miniatures.
Model car smart fortwo Cabriolet
the models Norev now delivered to the internal A 453 Cabriolet mentioned the brand new smart 1:43 and 1:18 on the trade. What the miniatures is no different from the thick models to Mercedes-AMG GT C 190 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class W222, is the finish, in the Norev models has made. The build quality of the smart in two sizes is sensational. For larger variations in 1:18 and cover doors are open from the trunk; at 1: 43er everything is closed - up on the roof. This can be either open or closed, thanks to an enclosed plastic part; in two sizes, by the way. Since Norev has driven a lot of effort and in the paint, the prices of 34.95 and 74.95 for the advertising models in smart packaging are entirely appropriate.
Farbenspiele à la Norev and smart
The miniatures in 1:18 scale are in black-to-yellow-Metallic with tridion cell in black under the article number B66960289, all in white (B66960291) and in the combination of cool silver for the tridion cell, titanium-gray-matte for the body panels and red at top (B66960290) available. In models in 1:43 scale smart and Norev have also resorted deep into the paint bucket. The first two miniatures are available with the tridion cell in jupiter red and the panels in titanium-gray and in black-to-yellow-metallic with black tridion cell in under item nos B66960286 B66960288 and. The colorful, small cars really remind us of the Smarties, the tasty chocolate candies that certainly knows all your because they also act as cuddly.
Similarities between S-class and fortwo
The soft top can be opened to the model in 12 seconds. If that rolling back is not enough, can remove the side roof bars and tuck into the inside of the tailgate. With an area of ??1.8 square meters, the soft roof tritop called out for about 4 percent larger than its predecessor. The outer skin is made of very light-resistant acrylic fabric, on the inside there is a polyester / cotton blend. In between is a rubber layer. Overall, the top is 20 millimeters thick. The rear window is heatable and consists of glass. The test program for open vehicles of Mercedes-Benz Cars is extensive - and the same for all cars: the smart fortwo cabrio has the same rigorous testing by living like the S-Class convertible.
What are the tests?
So in a continuous operation, the opening and closing of the roof over the entire life cycle of the vehicle is simulated. In addition to this unit test that covers 20,000 load changes to top and top mechanics must prove itself in the climate chamber. Even at temperatures between -15 and +80 degrees Celsius proper functioning must be ensured. In addition, a so-called abuse test at -40 degrees Celsius and completely icy roof: An overload release protects in this case, the motor of the folding-top drive. The carwash test ensures that passengers always sitting in the dry; 500 load cycles included. At the end of production of each vehicle 7 minutes irrigated with a standardized amount of water in Hambach.
Subtleties in the interior
The Zugfreihaltung the developers have studied in the wind tunnel of Mercedes Benz using the test dummy "Tanja". It is equipped with a total of 16 speed sensors on the neck and arms, which allows the flow rates of the air stream measured in the interior. The interior of the model makes our hearts beat faster, because it is precisely in the versions in which it is two-tone, it looks classy and well equipped from. The instrumentation, the screen of the navigation system and the controls are prototypically printed and dyed. The new convertible is initially with three cylinders with 52 kW / 71 PS and 66 kW / 90 hp versions. Both engines have to start twinamic fully automated dual-clutch transmission - variants with the five-speed manual will follow later. The new smart fortwo cabrio features typical of the brand handling - with 6.95 meters of curb to curb or 7.30 meters from wall to wall should be turning maneuver extremely easy. The equipment lines are named passion, prime and proxy. For the rest of the day - with or without a carnival - we wish you much fun.
