High performance standards, impeccable safety ratings and an incredibly robust build to boot; our car of the month - as selected by our highly experienced automotive experts - delivers it all!
The Mercedes Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is available as an option. Its dynamic cornering light function swivels the main headlights towards the inside of a bend, based on steering angle and road speed, so as to light up more of the road at bends and turns. Put simply, the road ahead is illuminated the moment you start to corner. PDLS also features speed-sensitive headlight range control and the adverse weather function.
The luggage compartment volume in the 911 models is 145 liters – 125 liters in the 911 all-wheel drive models. The luggage compartment is fully trimmed in scratch-resistant materials.
The active air intake flaps in the front air intakes act to reduce fuel consumption during everyday trips and to achieve superlative performance on sporty drives. Already proven on the 918 Spyder, the flaps close automatically while the car is in motion and thereby reduce drag.
On demand or in SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode, the flaps open and help to provide optimum engine cooling.
This means that cooling air is supplied only to the extent that it is actually needed. That’s efficiency. Of the intelligent kind.
The electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is available as an option for the 911 Coupé models. It opens outwards so that it does not interfere with headroom. Another advantage of this innovative design is the particularly large aperture for increased driving pleasure under the open sky. The net-type wind deflector protects against draught and further reduces wind noise.
Slide/tilt glass sunroof
On request, the electrically adjustable slide/tilt sunroof is available in tinted toughened safety glass. An integral electric roll-up sunblind provides shade from unwanted bright light. The build, headroom and aperture specifications of the glass sunroof are otherwise identical to those of the regular slide/tilt sunroof.
A restyling of the Bi-Xenon main headlights – fitted as standard – sees the four-spot LED daytime running lights now incorporated into each headlight unit. These are an innovative technical feature of the new 911 models – and a facet of their personality. After all, it is the characteristic lighting design that makes the face of the 911 so unmistakable.
Cutting edge LED technology is also used for all functions of the redesigned taillights. As well as being a powerful lighting source, LEDs offer a fast response to driver input. The LED brake lights emulate the four-spot appearance of the daytime running lights.
It’s a first for any Mercedes turbocharged boxer engines, and it’s a technical innovation. Available as an option for the new 911, the sport exhaust system features two catalytic converters and a rear silencer, which lead into two centrally positioned tailpipes. For a look otherwise more likely to be seen on the racetrack. For impressive resonance and an intense sports car sound – typical of the 911. For 100 % Mercedes. And for goose bumps at the push of a button.
Proven in motorsport, the Mercedes Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the new 911, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB now have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance.
Originating from the 911 Turbo S, PCCB features six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety under high-speed braking is also improved thanks to its excellent fade resistance.
Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. This results in better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.
