This Is The New Rolls-Royce Phantom And It Is Spectacular Inside Out

Yup. This is it. The all-new eight generation Rolls-Royce Phantom luxury sedan, christened 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. Nothing much here. It is just another specular car crafted with the rich in mind. The built will be without question, impeccable, or we dare say, the finest money can buy. Designed from the ground up and as expected, it promised to delivery both luxury and performance. It is worthy to note that Rolls-Royce, a BMW Group company, is a little snob when it comes to the company’s unequivocal dedication to, well, dedication.

Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

Affectionately called “George the Rolls,” this “slightly” custom Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe is Swedish skier, adventurer, car enthusiast and apparently now, a YouTube star, Jon Olsson‘s latest ride. Jon claims it as slightly custom, but to us, this thing is anything but lightly customized. Really. Just take a look at it. It is not quite recognizable as a Rolls, much less a Wraith, anymore. Hell, it doesn’t even sounds like a Rolls! But all in a good way, of course. Under the hood, the stock V12 twin-turbo motor was massaged to deliver 810 horses by The Netherlands’s Absolute Motors and it was dyno-tested as a proved that it is now a living, breathing 810HP beast. Continue reading Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever

The sad truth about exclusivity is, not many things money can buy is truly exclusive and this is especially true for automobiles. Even if you are rich enough to buy a Bugatti, someone else who are equally or more well off will have one, if not several. But thanks to Rolls-Royce coachbuilt, exclusivity can be guaranteed – that’s if you are out-of-this-world rich, of course, and the one-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail coachbuilt 2-seater coupé you see here is one such example. Make no mistake, my friends. The Sweptail you see here is not your usual bespoke Spirit of Ecstasy ride. Continue reading One-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail Is Easily The Prettiest Spirit of Ecstasy Ever

BMW Concept 8 Series Unveiled And It Looks Absolutely Fabulous!

It is time of the year again. The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is upon us and like every other year, this prestigious event where classic and vintage cars congregate is also the hotbed for big name automakers to show off their proudest rides, concepts included, and this irresistibly good-looking 2018 BMW Concept 8 Series coupe is among them.

Porsche Cayenne S Diesel Set New Record Towing A 285-Ton A380 Jetliner

Over 500 horsepower and no less 1,570 lb-ft (2,129 Nm) of torque. Those are what it takes to tow the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, but little did we know that a luxury vehicle like the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel can do the same. Granted, while it can, it obviously isn’t meant to do this on daily basis, much less doing it several times in a day. However, that didn’t stop Porsche from using the marque’s relatively puny 4.8 meters (16 feet) vehicle to tow the massive 73 meters (240 feet), 284 tons Air France A-380 out of Air France state-of-the-art engineering hangar at Paris Charles de Gaulie Airport and in the process, setting a new world record for the Heaviest aircraft pull by a production car last month, on April 21, 2017.

BMW Announced Exclusive Limited-run Special Edition M4 CS With 10 More HP

If you haven’t got your hands on the pricey and hard-to-obtain track-focused M4 GTS, or for some reason, you are all nuts about collecting every single M4 that rolls out of the German automaker’s factory, then here’s another for your consideration: the BMW M4 CS sports coupe. BMW said the CS variety fills the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the tracked-focused BMW M4 GTS, and it is an exclusive, limited-run special edition model. In other words, it is a M4, that have better performance over the standard M4 with Competition Package. Continue reading BMW Announced Exclusive Limited-run Special Edition M4 CS With 10 More HP

Bentley’s Vision Of Luxury Electric Car Is All Beauty And Copper, Lots Of It

Being a richie rich can be quite a pain. You can’t ride the luxe ride you love or zip city to city in your private jet without piling up on carbon footprint, but if you are a Bentley fan, you’d be glad that reprieve is almost here – thanks to the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e, luxury electric concept car that you’d be hard pressed not to take a second look. Without a doubt, it is gorgeous inside and out, but perhaps more importantly is, it is fully electric which means, instant torque at your disposal. Unfortunately, technical details is still a little muddy, or to be exact, there’s really none. Continue reading Bentley’s Vision Of Luxury Electric Car Is All Beauty And Copper, Lots Of It

Aston Martin’s Bold Hypercar, AM-RB 001, Officially Named After The Gods

Remember that crazy looking (in a good way, that is) Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing collab hypercar codenamed AM-RB 001 we saw last year? Well, it now has an official name, and it is called Aston Martin Valkyrie. But why the name ‘Valkyrie’. About that, it is not quite clear of actual reason, except for the fact that Valkyrie are female figures who have a say as to who may live or who may die in a battle. For those who fell in the battlefield, Valkyrie will bring half of them to Valhalla; the afterlife oversaw by Odin, Ruler of the Gods (in norse mythology).

New Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo: 550 Horses And Seats Five

What’s the use of a fine car when not many can ride with you, eh? However, if you think the Porsche Panamera is a fine car, the good news is, you can now take along one more passenger on an exhilarating, unadulterated ride – thanks to the inclusion of an additional seat found on the newly announced 2017 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, which will be making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show (March 7-19, 2017). The Sport Turismo is the first Panamera to get three seats at the rear: two on the outside in the form of bucket-style individual seats and a not very convincing, but still a seat, center seat. I guess, it is better than nothing. At least, you know you can afford up to three kids and still be able to enjoy the performance offered by a Porsche.
