Fast & Topless

告別嚴寒、擁抱初夏,跟陽光玩遊戲的方法,除了到海灘碧波暢泳之外,選擇一部速度與外形俱備的敞篷超跑,
愜意感受清風跟引擎交織出的美妙樂章,絕對是男士們不能抗拒極速誘惑。
The end of winter does not only mark the beginning of the beach season, but also time to enjoy warm breezes in a convertible supercar.


身邊不少朋友也擁有同一夢想,就是擁有自己的敞篷車,載著心儀伴侶,聆聽著輕鬆的音樂,於郊區風馳電掣享受假日的悠閒,品味生活莫過於此。因此特別率先為讀者推介三部今年推出的敞篷超跑,不同程度的美態足以令人意亂情迷。

說敞篷車、跑車、敞篷跑車,怎可能不提風靡全球車迷的意國代表法拉利?車廠於本年推出的敞篷鉅獻Portofino,絕對教人望穿秋水。新車由法拉利造型中心操刀外型,採用雙廂式車身搭配Fastback車尾和折疊式硬頂敞篷的Portofino,雖然是California T的後繼車款,但線條與輪廓都可看見812 Superfast的家族基因,車頭氣壩的進氣口與車尾均更為低趴狂野,也有著更優異的空氣力學設計。電動硬頂敞篷機構的設計則與前身California T相似,同樣僅需14秒就可完成開篷或關篷的動作,並能在低速行進中作動,在關篷與開篷之間提供兩種不同的風貌。

相對意式法拉利激情,來自英國的阿斯頓馬丁,彷彿為車主多帶一份優雅感覺,筆者記得於多年前試駕其DB9型號跑車,出門前刻意穿上西裝外套襯托車子,阿斯頓馬丁就是有如此一種令人優雅起來的魅力!說回最新的DB11 Volante敞篷車,相信要求高如007也再沒投訴。

新車的動力心臟搭載源自AMG的4.0升V8雙渦輪引擎,最大動力可輸出510 匹,同時搭配ZF 8 速手自排變速箱,與DB11 Coupe 入門的4.0升V8 雙渦輪引擎動力與變速箱相對應。

優雅的英倫氣質,車身線條修長流麗,處處流露典雅的感覺,毋須靠誇張的外表,或許,正正是這種內斂,說明品味不用過份賣弄。

自從寶馬在2016年宣布量產敞篷版本的i8以來,就陸續有外媒、網友捕捉到偽裝測試車的身影,甚至原廠也相當大方地多次公開測試影片。終於確定新車於2018 年5 月會正式上路。

這次亮相的i8 Roadster外型與i8 Coupe相當類似,除了沿用經典的鍘刀式開啟車門外,車尾設計同樣相當精彩,由於電動軟篷的導入,讓i8Roadster擁有別於Coupe車型的車尾線條,具防滾架功能的雙駝峰設計帶來極富張力的肌肉曲線,向後延伸至立體化LED尾燈組,佐以鋼琴烤漆的黑色部件,創造出高質感與科技化的設計氛圍。在動力系統部分,i8 Roadster依舊採用1.5升3缸汽油渦輪引擎搭配位於前軸的電動馬達,燃油引擎的動力供輸仍然有著231匹馬力的水準,不過小改後電動馬達的輸出功率從原先131匹小幅提升至143匹,也使得綜效馬力輸出來到374匹,搭配的變速系統仍是6速手自排,讓車子在4.6秒內從靜止加速至時速破百。

Many people share the same dream of taking their loved ones in their own convertibles to the countryside. Three convertible supercars to be launched this year will suit the purpose well.

It is difficult to talk about supercars without mentioning Ferrari. This year, the Italian carmaker is launching its Portofino. Designed by Ferrari Style Centre, the twodoor 2+2 hard top convertible replaces California T. Its appearance also takes cue from 812 Superfast, with its prominent rear bodywork around the exhausts, L-shaped headlights and aerodynamic body. The retractable top only takes 14 seconds to open or close and can be operated at low speeds.

British brand Aston Martin is often considered a more elegant option. When I test-drove its DB9 some years ago, I actually donned a suit jacket to match with the car. It just has the power to make everything around it more graceful. Its new DB11 Volante will satisfy even James Bond.

The convertible is powered by a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine developed with Mercedes-AMG. The car has a horsepower of 510 ps and is equipped with an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, same as DB11 Coupe. The DB11 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, also similar to the Coupe version.

The elegant British car features stylish design without being grandiose. Its subtle charm will appeal to those with an exquisite taste.

BMW’s convertibles also draw attention to car lovers. Since BMW announced in 2016 that it would produce a convertible version of i8, media and fans have repeatedly captured the car being tested. BMW had also made its test drive clips public several times before announcing the launch of i8 Roadster in May 2018.

The car shares i8 Coupe’s gullwing doors, but its rear is a bit different to cater for the soft retractable top. Its rear pillars stand out and extend to the LED lights at the back. The 1.5 L three-cylinder turbocharged gas engine remains the same with power output at 231 hp. However, the smaller electric motor produces 143 hp, up from 131 hp, leading to an increased combined output of 374 hp. Drive is channelled through a sixspeed automatic gearbox, allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
