Patent images reveal all-new Merc A-Class

Almost one month ago, I published a post regarding Merc's upcoming compact models, and now the all-new A-Class has been revealed through some patent images. Not so flashy as the concept, but still nice enough I would say... although the front end has some Volvo elements and the rear one some influence from Citroen.

Latest FT-86 rendering... is this the real deal?!

A few days ago I posted a photo from the latest Mag-X issue, which arrived today. As usual, I always try to provide you with the latest renderings coming straight from Japan. Anyway, as the time passes by and we are getting closer to December, I expect more accurate renderings of the production version to be published.

According to the article, the FB20 will deliver 200 ps and 205 Nm of torque, while it will come with the D-4S injection system. The bore and stroke will be 86 x 86 mm! In terms of transmissions, a 6AT will be also available with paddle shifts on the steering wheel. As already known, power will go to the rear wheels and an LSD will ensure the best power distribution.

The FT-86 will be on sale in April 2012.
