Merciel Corsaire GTE 2018
Unveiled at the LA Auto Show this week, the Corsaire GTE has gone through a radical facelift. The new facelift features new LED headlights and front grill.
Behind, a new set of LED taillights, a new larger diffuser and a larger, more impressive rear wing. This all improves downforce and handling of the car
Underneath, the car has received some minor adjustments following the feedback from the 2017 car. The engine, which previously made whopping 800hp has now been electronically limited to 750, improving driveability and the electronic steering assist has been replaced with a variable hydraulic one, improving the driver’s feel for the road.

Overall, the new 2018 Corsaire should be just as, if not more competitive than the 2017 model.
Also shown at the LA Motor Show was the new 2018 Merciel Vixen WRC. Replacing the 2017 Vitesse WRC, the new 2018 Vixen WRC is the successor to the 2004 Vixen WRC, which won 3 consecutive championships from 2005-2008.
Due to the new 2018 regulations, the new Vixen is wider than the old Vitesse, allowing for more stability. In addition, the extra aerodynamic features present on the car further improve handling.
Underneath, the Vixen retains the 1.6L i4 from the Vitesse, which in itself is based off the 2004 Vixen. While the extra weight of the Vixen may seem to hinder the performance of the car, the new 2018 car features a new, more sophisticated anti-lag system that reduces lag allowing for it to reach peak power much faster.

In addition to this, the new Vixen features a more advanced electronic central locking differential and a new 6 speed sequential gearbox, overall, making the Vixen as fast as the Vitesse.
