Lamborghini’s Newest Concept Is Loaded With The Wildest Future Tech

Electric drive is the future. Fossil fuel-powered Lamborghinis may not futuristic, but as they are, they do look like transport of the future with the futuristic lines and all. That being said, it is only natural that its concept electric supercar would weighs heavily with futuristic lines. One look at the marque’s concept electric supercar Terzo Millennio, which literally translates to “Third Millennium,” you know you are looking at the future of the Italian sports car maker. Befitting the futuristic look is an advanced electric powertrain and an ultra lightweight, high-tech structure. Continue reading Lamborghini’s Newest Concept Is Loaded With The Wildest Future Tech

Aston Martin Zagato Vanquish Shooting Brake Completes Aston Martin’s First Zagato Family

Considering myself a pretty huge fan of Aston Martin, I wonder how did I managed to miss this piece of news that came up in August. Anyways, you know what they say, it is better late than never and so here they are, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagatos: Speedster and Shooting Brake. These two highly desirable rides join the coupe and Volante models to complete the quartet. The first of the quartet, the Vanquish Zagato Coupe is already rolling out of the production line.

Audi’s New A7 Sportback Has Mild Hybrid System Across The Engine Range

We decided that we are not the mouthpiece of Audi and so, we shall dispense with all the marketing mambo jambo that comes with the newly revealed Audi A7 Sportback. Sportback is essentially fastback and you know what it means when it is a fastback? It is tickles our fancy. Many American muscles that we love are build on the foundation of a fastback. But the Audi here is, of course, not American. That does not make it any less deserving of our love. It features what Audi refer to as a four-door coupe form, which I believe was first adopted by Mercedes-Benz years ago.

New Range Rover Is Not Just Luxurious, But It Is Silent Too

Land Rover fans who are a tad eco-conscious can now look the marque’s 2018 Range Rover because, this luxury off-roader has now gone a teeny weeny bit greener – thanks to the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drivetrain made up of a longitudinally-mounted 300 PS (221 kW or about 295 HP) 2L four-pot Ingenium petrol engine and a 85 kW electric motor. According to the horse’s mouth, the total yield from the P400e PHEV is 404 PS (or 297 kW which works out to be 398 HP). Now, at this point, keen eye readers probably noted the discrepancy in numbers. Me too, but don’t ask me why, really. I spent the last five minutes brooding over this and I still don’t get it. Continue reading New Range Rover Is Not Just Luxurious, But It Is Silent Too

One-Of-A-Kind ‘Rally-Spec’ Bentley Continental GT Sold For £40,800

In one episode of the National Geographic’s TV show, Supercar Megabuild, a Bentley Continental GT was ‘brutally’ put under the knife, turning it from a luxury road car into an apocalypse-worthy, luxury off-road vehicle. It was an act not all Bentley enthusiasts will condone and this being a Bentley, nobody would have fancy an off-road version anyways, unless, of course, it is an official factory example. Me, on the other hand, kind of love it, but I could be the minority and minor love it did get because, despite the 101 bids it has attracted when this one-of-a-kind ‘rally-spec’ Bentley Continental GT went on the block, it only managed to conclude with a £40,800 sticker (roughly US$55,000), which is lesser than an untouched Bentley Continental GT would have fetched. Continue reading One-Of-A-Kind ‘Rally-Spec’ Bentley Continental GT Sold For £40,800

BMW i Vision Dynamics Is The Electric Mobility Of “Immediate Future”

Described as an “electric mobility of the much more immediate future,” the BMW i Vision Dynamics bears a shell that indeed looks like a probable car of today, or at least, in very near future. Unveiled at this year’s IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt, the BMW i Vision Dynamics is a four-door Gran Coupe powered by an undisclosed electric drive that offers a range of 373 miles (600 km), promised a top speed of 120 miles an hour (200 km/h) and takes mere four seconds to cover the century sprint. These are numbers that are not out-of-this-world, which means, they are likely to be realized. Even the aesthetic, while ‘futuristic’ in a way, looks pretty down-to-earth.

BMW Unveiled New 4.4L V8 Bi-Turbo M5 with 600 HP of Adrenalin Rush

Good news M fans who can’t get enough of M power. The newest M power, the new BMW M5, has just gone official and it looks, well, so very 2017 BMW. That being said, there’s really nothing to pick on the aesthetic; it is just the design language you have come to expect of a Beemer of 2017/18. What’s important to true M fans would be what goes under that muscular, sculpted aluminum hood which happens to be a very, very angry 4.4L V8 bi-turbo motor with, you guessed it, M TwinPower Turbo technology that kicks out 600 horses and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. Continue reading BMW Unveiled New 4.4L V8 Bi-Turbo M5 with 600 HP of Adrenalin Rush

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

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
