PostHeaderIcon BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre

The latest-generation 7 Series came to be in 2016, just as the nameplate was preparing to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Redesigned from the ground up on the lighter platform, the new 7 Series is far from revolutionary styling-wise, but it boasts more luxury than ever before, as well as numerous technology firsts for the brand. Lighter, quicker, more fuel efficient, and more autonomous than ever, the new 7 Series is definitely a turning point for the nameplate. Come 2017, and BMW is celebrating four decades of the 7 Series with the limited-edition 40 Jahre.

German for “40 years,” the Edition 40 Jahre was conceived as a tribute to 7 Series’ rich history. Recognized as a symbol of luxury, driving pleasure, and innovations, the 7 Series is one of the company’s most mature products, and its 40-year-long history speaks for itself. The anniversary model is more than just a 7 Series with a special badge. The sedan also comes with exclusive exterior and interior design features, as well as the possibility to have the car tailored to individual customer specification at the BMW Dingolfing plant. Find out more about that below.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Prius Crossover Doesn’t Look Half Bad

prius crossover

The JDM-only cars – that is, cars from Japanese car makers that only go on sale in their domestic market – are often way too weird and eccentric to work in Europe and America. But every once in a while we come across one of these cars that could potentially do well outside Japan, and this Toyota Prius Crossover is one such thing. 

Called Toyota Aqua in Japan, Toyota Prius Crossover is based on the Prius C hatchback and features, among other things, a jacked-up suspension system, slightly larger wheels and tires, and a set of body parts that give it a, sort of, rugged and outdoorsy look. The package consists of front underbody plate, side skirts, fender flares in black, and a rear underguard. None of these, of course, will in any shape or form enhance the vehicle’s offroad-ability, but they do give it a refreshingly sporty look which is what customers really want.

The looks are all that matter with stuff like Toyota Prius Crossover as they are bought predominantly by those who have no need for the capabilities of a real SUV, or a real crossover for that matter, but quite enjoy the styling that comes with it. That is whole foundation upon which the concept of trendy crossovers is built. That is also why the Crossover does not get any special treats in terms of mechanical features and has to make do with the standard, asthmatic, 99 horsepower hybrid powertrain. And forget about AWD or terrain control and other offroady equipment.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-AMG GT4

Unveiled in 2014, the Mercedes-AMG GT is the company’s latest halo sports car and replaces the SLS AMG in the lineup. However, the [AMG GT is smaller than its predecessor and aimed at a slightly different market niche, having been developed as a competitor for the Porsche 911. The sports car was also used to introduce AMG’s brand-new engine, a twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8. Launched in GT and GT S variations, the two-door gained higher performance GT R (coupe) and GT C (roadster) models, as well as a GT3-spec race car version in 2016. In 2017, Mercedes-Benz is rolling out a second race car based on the AMG GT, this time around in GT4 specification.

If you’re not familiar with the GT4 class, it’s a less powerful, more affordable version of GT3 and it’s mostly dedicated to amateur drivers. The cars are also equalized in order to allow driving skill to become key. The Mercedes-AMG GT4 was optimized for a wide range of championships, including the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and the Pirelli World Challenge in the U.S., the Blancpain GT Series Asia in Asia and the Australian GT Trophy in Australia. In Germany, the VLN endurance racing championship, and the Nürburgring 24-hours are the series that will see new race car in action. The GT4 European Series Northern Cup and the GT4 European Series Southern Cup are among the international GT4 series that Mercedes developed the AMG GT4 for.

PostHeaderIcon The Gilded History of the Rolls-Royce Phantom

Sir Henry Royce, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, is quoted as saying, “Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it doesn’t exist, design it.” Those are some pretty heavy words, but it’s the right credo for an automaker like Rolls-Royce. With a history of producing some of the most elegant, opulent, and downright desirable luxury vehicles on the planet, perfection isn’t just a goal – it’s an expectation. Such is the case with the Phantom, Rolls-Royce’s highly recognizable flagship model. These are cars that are destined for the stables of royalty, acting as a rolling signature of power, wealth, and prestige.

Lead by the trademark Spirit of Ecstasy on the hood, the Phantom comes equipped with top-shelf extravagance and lavishness, offering high levels of personalization to those select buyers with pockets deep enough to really enjoy it. Currently offered in a variety of different flavors, including the standard Phantom, an Extended Wheelbase model, a Coupe, and a Drophead Coupe, Rolls has announced a new eighth generation slated for release later this week. However, the history of the nameplate is rapidly approaching a full century at this point, so how’d we get here? To find out, we delved into the Phantom’s history, taking a look at the seven generations that have come and gone since the model’s introduction in 1925.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 2 Series Coupe

A few years back, someone at BMW thought it would be fun to place the magical name game. Instead of the 1 Series being sold as a coupe, convertible, three-door, or five-door, BMW decided to take the coupe and convertible models and call them the 2 Series. It was a little confusing at first, but a lot of good came out of it. The 2 Series coupe is larger than the model it replaced and came complete with a four-cylinder that was more powerful and offered better fuel efficiency compared to the V-6 in the old 1 Series coupe. And, of course, don’t forget that we were also blessed with the gorgeous BMW M2. Come the 2018 model year, and the entire 2 Series lineup is due for an update. BMW’s PR talk would leave you to believe that we’re talking about a new generational model, but truth be told, the changes are quite thin for 2018. Exterior changes are limited to new lighting units, while the interior gets a mildly revised dash and updated iDrive infotainment system. As far as motivation goes, you’ll have your choice of three-, four-, and six-cylinder mills (depending on market) that deliver between 136 and 340 horsepower.

Just to be clear, BMW says the 2018 2 Series is a new-gen model, but all evidence points to the contrary. Changes are minimal, and the 2 Series has really only been around since 2014, so it wouldn’t make sense for a new-gen model to be ushered in so quickly. With that said, let’s take a closer look at what the 2018 model will offer when it goes on sale in July of 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo

If cars could tell stories and write books about their lives and what they’ve been through, this particular Pagani Zonda would have a New York Times best-seller on its hands. See, it may look like a brand-new Zonda that Pagani has kept under lock and key in Italy, but it’s actually far from new. Strip away the new body and what you get is a 12-year old car that originated as a Zonda F. True story.

Now it’s christened as the Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo and it looks resplendent in dark red carbon fiber. Even in its new guise, this car’s history is as rich as any Pagani model in history. It’s been through a crash that left it short of the scrap heap. It’s been sent back to Pagani for nips and tucks more times than even the owner can count. It’s changed names a handful of times, too, first as the Zonda F before being renamed the Zonda SH to account for the owner’s initials. From there, it became the Zonda Fantasma because it apparently has a nicer ring to it. And after the latest series of modifications, it’s added the “Evo” moniker, this officially making it the Zonda Fantasma Evo. Through it all though, one thing about the car that hasn’t changed: the AMG-sourced V-8. Twelve years after hitting the market, the Zonda Fantasma Evo still makes use of a naturally aspirated, 7.3-liter engine, though it now makes 100 more horsepower than its 660 factory tune. In a nutshell, the Zonda Fantasma Evo has become the living embodiment of the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

PostHeaderIcon Mazda CX-8

In a world where SUVs have pretty much taken over the automotive market, Mazda is actually coming up quite short in its offerings, with its current lineup consisting of no more than the CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9. Over in the brand’s home market, Japan, things are even thinner with just the CX-3 and CX-5 making up Mazda’s entire SUV lineup. All that is about to change in the near future, however, as Mazda has just announced a new SUV. It will be called the CX-8 and is apparently designed with the Japanese market in mind. Details are pretty scant as of this writing, but it will be just a tad bit smaller than the CX-9 we know here in the U.S. and is said to be powered by a 2.2-liter diesel that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It will offer three rows of seating and, depending on configuration, will offer seating for six or seven people.

For now, Mazda has released just one image of the interior and has decided to keep exterior design filed away in its top-secret database. But, given the nature of Mazda design, you can rest assured that the exterior will likely mimic that of the CX-5 and CX-9 with a few little changes here and there to make it stand out from the rest of the models in the lineup. For now, there’s no word on whether or not it will come to the U.S., but given every other automaker’s attempt to offer as many SUVs as possible, it’s not outside the spectrum of potential possibility. With that said, we’ve decided to speculate a little more about this upcoming model, and what it might bring to the table.

Update 7/25/2017: Mazda has released a single image of the new CX-8 prior to its debut. Check out the special update section below to learn all about it.

Continental GT Convertible Galene-0

The latest limited edition version of the Bentley GT is inspired by luxury yachting and is pitched as the ultimate edition of this model in terms of luxuriousness and style. The Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is built by the celebrated Mulliner division in collaboration with Princess Yachts.

Though they maintain Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene has taken inspiration from yacht design, the connection is only really seen in the choice of colors and to some extent the interior trim. That is why the car comes in Glacier White paint work and lower brightware in Sequin Blue, as well as dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels.

As for the interior, it gives new meaning to extravagance making use of Linen and Portland hides with Camel hand cross stitching, the door panels are Linen, Portland and Brunel. Linen, Brunel and Camel accentuate the dashboard, centre console and armrests, whilst the steering wheel is Linen and Brunel with a Camel 12 o’clock stripe. There is also Glacier White stowage case and fascia panels as well as a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht alongside the Mulliner script in each car. Last but not least, Mulliner has created a new material finish – Pinstripe Walnut – which covers the boot floor.

Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene is limited to just 30 units worldwide powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant with 507 PS and 660 Nm.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang Goes From 0 to 60 MPH In Under 4 Seconds

Ford fans rejoice, and spectators run for your life – the 2018 Ford Mustang is here, and it comes with a fresh look and more power than ever. To start off, the EcoBoost model – the new entry-level model now that the V-6 has been dropped – maintains its 310 horsepower output, but gains an extra 30 pound-feet, bringing it up to 350 pound-feet of torque. The real news, however, is the is that beast of an engine under the hood of the Mustang GT is 5.0-liters of sheer stomach cramping goodness that’s good for 440 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. That’s an improvement me of 25 ponies and 20 pound-feet over the 2017 model and enough to make the Porsche 911 Porsche Carrera look like a little bitch with its $94,000 price tag and 4.4-second sprint to 60 mph.

It’s not just the extra power that makes the Mustang so quick, it’s the entire setup, and one could argue that Ford has quite literally found perfection. When you combine the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires that come with the Performance Pack along with that increased output, the new Drag Strip mode and the new 10-speed automatic, you get sheer supremacy. We’re talking about a sprint to 60 mph in “less than four seconds” and, while we don’t know official top speed figures, you can bet the updated GT will get you a little closer to God when you finally start to max out. To get the extra power out of that V-8, Ford added in dual-fuel, high-pressure direction injection and low-pressure port fuel injection. Surely there was some other tuning specifics, but Ford has yet to elaborate. Seems hard to believe, doesn’t it? Keep reading to learn more.

PostHeaderIcon BMW X5 M

The current BMW X5 is four years old as of 2017 and, according to the company’s lifecycle plan, it will be around for a couple more. However, the fourth-generation SUV has already been spotted testing on public roads, and as a result, we’ve already created a rendering based on the camouflaged prototype. Now, BMW has begun testing the beefed-up M version near the Nurburgring at it’s time to have a closer look at the range-topping version of the SUV.

Likely to break cover toward the end of 2018, the upcoming X5 M will ride on the same CLAR platform as the new 5 Series sedan and the next-generation X5 it will be based on. Of course, the M-badged SUV will get unique chassis tuning as well as a wild V-8 with massive output. Interestingly enough, the new X5 M will arrive just in time for the redesigned Mercedes-AMG GLE63, also due to break cover in 2018. Find out all you need to know about the upcoming X5 M in my speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Buy Snacks During Your Uber or Lyft Ride

A new startup is bringing somewhat unconventional vending services into the hands of Lyft and Uber drivers, allowing them to offer up thinks like snacks, pain relievers, and even phone chargers to their riders. The startup is known as Cargo and has a nifty little setup that includes a display case for the vehicle and inventory, as well as a web portal where customers pay for their purchase. Apparently, drivers get to sign up for free, and it appears as if the stock is given out on consignment and is even automatically tracked and delivered as needed, based on the driver’s sales. And, this isn’t some tiny little startup either, as the company has reportedly received as much as $1.75 million in seed funding and is already operating in New York City, Boston, and Chicago.

Of course, the company is still in the embryonic stages of deployment but claims to have received requests from drivers in 49 states. And, that’s really not surprising, considering that drivers are reportedly making $100 – $150 extra a month just from vending sales alone. The system operates rather simply for something that could be complicated. Customers simply insert a basic URL into their phone, plug in the number of the vending machine in their ride, and choose what they want to buy, be it an iPhone charger or a pack of spearmint gum. Payment is made electronically, and once completed, an alert is sent to the driver who then hands over you’re your goodies for the trip home. So how much do drivers get paid?

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow by Edo Competition

Just in case it isn’t abundantly clear by now, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a legend. It’s regarded as one of the most iconic models in history, as it has been ever since it was launched in the market 54 years ago. The sports car’s appeal is unlikely to lose its luster anytime soon, and it’s that particular timeless quality about it that has made the 911 such a popular model in the aftermarket tuning circle. The current-generation 911 has seen its fair share of programs from tuning heavyweights like TechArt, TopCar, and Gemballa. Now it’s edo competition’s turn to get in on the action and the German tuner didn’t disappoint with a 675-horsepower creation called the 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow.

It’s a fancy name for a fancy tuning program for a fancy sports car. It also happens to be potent beyond words, not to mention capable of achieving incredible amounts of speed and power that fits into the performance legacy of the Porsche 911. It’s fitting, too, that this program comes from edo competition, the same tuner that’s responsible for some of the most impressive tuning creations in history. Remember what it did to the Ferrari Enzo all those years ago? I don’t expect this creation for the 911 Turbo S to match that in power and performance, but I do know that it doesn’t need to. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is its own unicorn, and edo competition did it a solid by sprinkling its pixie dust all over it.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes and Bosch Unveil Automated Valet Parking

Bosch und Daimler zeigen fahrerloses Parken im realen Verkehr: Weltpremiere im Parkhaus des Mercedes-Benz Museums

OK, if we’re honest this whole autonomous thing had not hit us that hard before we saw this. The Automated Valet Parking developed by Mercedes and Bosch is a great showcase of what this technology is capable of, and what it’s capable of is bloody witchcraft!

So here’s what Automated Valet Parking does in a nutshell: you and your better half arrive in the car equipped with the system, most likely an S-Class, you get off at the entrance, touch something on your smartphone, and the car goes off by itself, finds a parking spot, parks itself, and when you’re done shopping it comes and picks you up. And it’s intelligent enough not to hit anything or anybody while doing all this, and can even up and down multiple levels multistory to find a spot. See? Witchcraft.

Follow Our Channel for New Videos Everyday: Subscribe

Automated Valet Parking is demonstrated here at the Mercedes-Benz Museum where, from the beginning of 2018, visitors to the museum’s multi-storey car park will be able to experience the convenient service at first hand and avoid spending time parking their cars. Here’s a brief explanation of the system by Mercedes-Benz themselves:

Anyone can reserve a car using a smartphone app. The vehicle rolls into the pick-up area autonomously to start the journey. The return procedure is equally convenient: the customer parks the vehicle in the car park’s drop-off area and hands it back by smartphone app. After being registered by the intelligent system installed at the multi-storey car park, the car is started and guided to an assigned parking space. Driverless parking is made possible by an intelligent multi-storey car park infrastructure from Bosch in conjunction with the vehicle technology from Mercedes-Benz. Sensors installed in the car park monitor the driving corridor and its surroundings and steer the vehicle. The technology on board the car performs safe driving manoeuvres in response to the commands from the car park infrastructure and stops the vehicle in good time when necessary. The sensors for the multi-storey car park infrastructure and the communications technology come from Bosch. Daimler is providing the private museum car park and pilot vehicles, defining the interface between infrastructure and vehicle together with Bosch and adapting the sensor technology and software in the vehicles accordingly.

Jaguar released today an updated XJ range including a new range-topping super hot model. The 2018 Jaguar XJR575 is a £93,710 super saloon with 575 PS and 700 Nm of torque, the ability to accelerate from 0-62 mph (100km/h) in just 4.4 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h), which is by the way achieved from standing still in a mere 44 seconds.

In fact Jaguar has come up with an interesting way to demonstrate this amazing acceleration to top speed with this video in which TV presenter and race driver Amanda Stretton conducts an interview with Jag designer Wayne Burgess in the time it takes the XJR575 to hit 186 mph:

What better way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of your flagship model than with a special, limited edition? It’s especially up BMW’s alley since they are the king of limited edition. And so they are celebrating the 40th birthday of the 7er with a very special model called BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre.

Now, more often than not not BMW special editions are just ordinary models with a special badge put on them that cost an arm and a leg. In the case of the BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre, though, you do get a lot more value seeing as this one is marking an important milestone for a very remarkable model. They could not mess around this time. Another reason why they couldn’t pull their usual tricks with the 40 Jahre is because it comes in 200 copies only, each tailored to individual customer specifications. Following its debut at the 2017 IAA motor show the edition models will be on offer from October 2017 with either a standard or a long wheelbase in conjunction with all six, eight and twelve-cylinder engines available for the BMW 7 Series.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: The X-Class Sucks Because You’re a Snotty Elitist

Another day, another carrot. Oh wait, scratch that, the folks over at Warner Brothers may not like it. Just like I don’t like the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class. But hey, unlike Warner Brothers, I can’t sue the Germans for launching the most boring pickup truck ever. But you should know that already, because I posted a big rant on the matter yesterday. I simply hate the design. I think it’s uninspired and lacks everything a Mercedes should have, minus the subdued — and incredibly booooring — styling. Both inside and out. And the worst part is that the truck it is based on, the Nissan Navara, looks way better.

But leaving the X-Class’ design aside for a bit, there’s one more thing that’s been bugging me. It doesn’t have to do as much with the X-Class as with the Navara and with people complaining that Mercedes used a Nissan-Renault Alliance platform for its first pickup truck. I keep seeing this as an argument as to why the X-Class is a big disappointment and I find it ridiculous. And I’m gonna explain why.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Jay Leno Review His Personal 2017 Ford GT: Video

Ford reintroduced the GT nameplate in 2015 at the Detroit Auto Show, ushering in a second-generation for the Blue Oval’s streetable supercar. The GT is a nod to the GT40, the racer that brought the fight to Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the mid-‘60s, and the modern iteration arrives packed to the brim with the very latest in domestic go-fast technology. It’s a low-weight, high-strung, monster of a super car, making it the perfect addition for Jay Leno’s garage.

In this extended 36-minute, 51-second review, Jay starts by detailing the process he went through in securing, customizing, and receiving delivery of his car, followed by a comparison to another legendary sports car. “This reminds me a lot of my McLaren F1 because the McLaren F1was a road car that you could have driven to Le Mans, won the race, and driven back, and this is pretty much the same thing.” After a walk around in the garage, including a look at the aero, the cabin, and the engine, Jay takes the Ford out into public for a little street driving, both on the highway, surface streets, and twisty mountain lanes. While lengthy, the video is still worth a watch to get an in-depth look at Ford’s top dog.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT Production Hits A Speed Bump, Deliveries Now Delayed

The lucky lot who managed to secure reservations for the Ford GT will now have to wait a little longer before taking delivery of their supercar. That’s the word according to Ford itself, which announced delays in the production due to what it described as “craftsmanship requirements.” According to Automotive News, the Blue Oval sent a letter to would-be GT owners, explaining that the cause of delay was tied to supplier constraints and homologation testing brought about by the increased production of the car. As such, adjustments are being made on the timetable of the delivery of the cars.

Ford didn’t elaborate on anything more than saying the ramp-up process to get all of its suppliers in line are almost complete. Likewise, an updated delivery timetable will be sent to customers within a week, so those who are getting anxious because of this deal can breathe a little easier now. It doesn’t appear to be a major issue, but simply a case of Ford getting its production logistics in order before proceeding with the build. Once the ramp-up phase is smoothed out, the company still expects to build one GT a day for its expecting customers. Of the 250 planned units for the year, 50 models have been built and delivered to their new owners. Soon enough, the rest will have their days too, but not after waiting a little longer than they anticipated.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M3 CS on the Books for 2018

Earlier in 2017, we saw BMW launch a new limited-edition M4. It’s called the CS and slots between the standard M4 and the track-ready GTS. Essentially a GTS without the massive wing, the CS also marked the return of the famous badge that BMW used in the 1960s and 1970s. Not surprisingly, the M4 CS was very popular with BMW enthusiasts, which is why the German brand is also considering a sedan version. Naturally, it will be called the M3 CS.

The beefed-up M3 is not yet official, but the folks over at German outlet Bimmer Today claim that the four-door CS will arrive sometime in 2018. The source also says that the M3 CS will share underpinnings with its M4 counterpart, meaning that it will hit the street with the upgraded twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine rated at 460 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. This output will make the CS the most powerful M3 ever, placing it above the legendary E92-generation M3 GTS, which had 444 horses on tap. What’s more, it should be a tad quicker than the standard M3 with a 0-to-62 sprint of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 174 mph.
