Alpine Electronics Europe demo car Fiat 500 CUP

Compact dimensions, trendy design, and plenty of power. No, we’re not talking about the Fiat 500 this time, but about the innovative technology inside the new Alpine demo car. But what’s so special about this MS Design-refined model (which, by the way, is number 5 of a limited edition of 100)? Manfred Stengl and his team completely revamped the interior and installed all multimedia components visibly and in the order of the signal path, thus presenting the structure of the system in a comprehensible manner.

Ils arrivent en Europe et en France du 10 au 12 mars prochains.

Après la neuvième édition américaine qui s’est terminée fin janvier, après les Jeux olympiques de Vancouver, la fête du ski se poursuit avec l’arrivée des Winter X Games en Europe. Pour cette grande première, du 10 au 12 mars prochains, ils sont accueillis à Tignes, dans les Alpes françaises, au cœur du plus grand domaine skiable du monde.

HEICO SPORTIV : 24 Hours – A Decision

HEICO SPORTIV presents the company’s first ever elaborately produced motor sport film under the label “24 Hours – A Decision”.

“24 Hours – A Decision” shows arousing and unique shots of HEICO SPORTIV’s current motor sport season. The image film focuses on people, machines and legends: the team, the Volvo C30-based HEICO HS3 racer, the infamous Nordschleife at the Nürburgring...

After nine days’ shooting by three camera teams generating over two terabytes of FullHD data and over 35 hours of raw material, reduction to the “nuts and bolts” left ca. 10 minutes of high octane buzz!

Neither cost nor effort was spared for this cinema-quality experience: five months of production included breathtaking aerial images from around 500’ altitude as well as mesmerizing track photos from just 6” over the track – skimming over the asphalt at 166 mph! An exact animation of the route based on satellite images and laser height measurement data imposingly round off this or-chestration of HEICO SPORTIV’s racing sorties.
