PostHeaderIcon Bentley Continental 24 Edition Celebrates Nurburgring Race

Continental 24 - 1

Celebrating their participation in the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race for the third consecutive year with three Continental GT3s, Bentley has released a new limited edition model. It’s called the Bentley Continental 24 and as you may have already guessed it is limited to 24 bespoke models for Europe.

Bentley Continental 24 is based on the sportiest member of the Continental family, the Supersports. Therefore, the limited edition packs a 700bhp W12 engine with 1000 Nm of torque which gives it a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds).

But what really separates this model from the “standard” Supersports is the cosmetic features inspired by the motorsport version. On the outside Bentley Continental 24 comes with Monaco Yellow over Black Crystal from Bentley Team ABT Continental GT3 race car, or you can have it in St James’ Red over Black Crystal. These are complemented with black 21” lightweight forged wheels that can be finished with yellow or red accents to match the paintwork. You also get carbon fibre door mirrors, black brake calipers and all-black exterior brightware, plus gloss carbon fibre cover for the engine.

Inside the €250,000 limited edition features race-themed, replete with fascias, door panels and individually-numbered treadplates finished in carbon fibre, diamond-quilting to all four seats is in Alcantara, and “Continental 24” inlays fitted to the fascias.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Renault Megane RS Set for Frankfurt Debut

All-New-Megane-R.S.

Turns out the new Honda Civic Type R is not going to enjoy being  the hottest hot hatch around, because Renault will soon reveal this, the new 2018 Renault Megane RS. They have just released a cool teaser announcing the Frankfurt Motor Show in September as the venue for the global debut of the car. But before that we’re going to see the new RS in action at Monaco GP. 

The 2018 Renault Megane RS will get an elaborate dynamic drive at the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend with Nico Hülkenberg driving the car on the street circuit. The debut RS will be dressed in the traditional RenaultSport colors of yellow and black.

As for the specs and details of the 2018 Renault Megane RS itself, the French remain tight-lipped on that for now, only revealing that the new RS utilizes F1 technologies and is more dynamic and more efficient than all its predecessors as seen in the teaser video above. There has never really been a bad Megane RS, even though sometimes the new technologies they implement on the car make the traditional fans of the car quite mad. But we are excited all the same to see what sort of performance figures the new hot hatch boasts. Will it be able to tear the Type R a new one? Or will it have to be content competing with lesser rivals?

Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair-z

A car dealer must have a helluva lot of prestige for Rolls-Royce to accept a one-off commission from them. H.R. Owen has that kind of cred, and so when they approached the Goodwood-based luxury maker they were only too happy to make the super special Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition for them. 

The one of a kind Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition celebrates H.R. Owen’s 85 years in motor cars business and pays homage to where one of Owen’s top branches, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, is located, in the Mayfair area in the heart of Berkeley Square.

As for what makes this Dawn special, the bespoke treatment begins with the Berwick Bronze colour scheme complementing the use of copper in this car. You find the charmingly rustic material on the dashboard, on the audio speakers and on the Arctic White seat bullets, as well as embroidered treadplates that read: “Special Commission – Mayfair Edition One of One”. Although this Dawn is very special to Owen, they are still car dealers and so they are already looking for a buyer for the Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair Edition.

Rolls-Royce Dawn Mayfair-q

Claus Andersen, Brand Director of Rolls-Royce, said: “We are delighted to welcome this ultra-rare car to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, appropriately on an anniversary year for the dealership. Our clients value exclusivity very highly indeed, and this 1 of 1 Dawn Mayfair Edition has that overwhelming exclusive appeal. The success of the Berkeley Square showroom has put us in a position to be able to offer such a stunning car, and we’re excited to find its very lucky owner.”

As usual, if you are in search of the craziest, most zesty body kits you have to search for your object of desire in the catalogs of Japanese tuners. The car we’re featuring this time is the BMW i8 which a tuner called Garage Eve.Ryn has tuned into a weird and wonderful thing they call Energy Sport Evo BMW i8 Dark Knight.

Before we get to the details of BMW i8 Dark Knight and the little pieces that add up to make such a great effect in the overall looks of the car, you need to check this thing out up close:

Follow our channel for awesome car videos everyday: Subscribe

BMW i8 Dark Knight by Eve.Ryn features completely custom bumpers which at the front feature a new spoiler intake combo that is frankly not very well designed and looks fairly cheap. But the flaws are hard to notice thanks to a unique feature they have used, which is a a kind of vertical spoiler fitted to the edge of the bumpers. They not only complement the headlights with their carbon fiber insert, but also become part of the fender flares. Yes, that means the Dark Knight i8 is a wide body and it gets a pair of dynamic side skirts to enhance that look. A new diffuser, a rear spoiler, new wheels and some adjustments to the suspension are among the other highlights of this bad boy.

Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante

You may have heard of Kris Singh, a Miami-based businessman with a penchant for super rare, super expensive cars. You may have seen his Lamborghini Veneno and Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa. And if those things haven’t been enough to make you jealous, check out the man’s latest acquisition, the unique Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante.

This car is so special on so many different levels, one doesn’t know where to begin. For starters, it’s a Pagani Huayra which is the automotive equivalent of Faberge egg. Then we have that little ‘BC’ at the end of the name, which means it’s a limited edition – with only 20 units being produced – with unique features and design. Last but not least there is the Macchina Volante part which is what truly set this hyper machine apart. Meaning Flying Machine in Italian, the name is a tribute to one of Horacio Pagani’s heroes, Leonardo da Vinci who, as you know, was obsessed with machines and flight.

Mechanically, the black and blue Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante is a standard BC which means it packs a track-tuned engine and chassis with over 800 horsepower and a 7-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) plus an electronic differential. THe BC also comes with all new tripod axle drive shafts, derived from the world of Le Mans racing, suspension components forged from HiForg, a lightweight aeronautic aluminium alloy of exceptionally high strength, CCM (carbon-ceramic) braking system, and many other cool stuff.

PostHeaderIcon How to prevent your car from being stolen?

It’s estimated, that a motor vehicle is being stolen in about every 45 seconds in the United States. It is also noteworthy, that a car theft over the past decade has not decreased as significantly as the rates for other crimes. While property crimes during the last 10 years went down by about 19%, car theft declined less than 2%.

There are some methods of securing a car. And it’s good idea to find a reliable and experienced locksmith company or a technician, who can suggest you the best ways how to protect your vehicle.

One of the popular options to prevent an automobile theft, is to use a mechanical immobilizer, which is designed to limit access to or movement of the car. Such devices are: Steering-Wheel Locks, Tire Locks, Hood Locks, Ignition/steering Wheel Column and crook Locks, Brake Pedal Locks, Gear Shift Locks, etc.

The advantage of mechanical immobilizers is their highly visual appearance, which can deter amateur thieves, but not the pros. It’s advisable to use this device in conjunction with other anti-theft appliances.

It’s also a good idea to use an electronic immobilizer. A lot of modern cars come standard with keys and fobs that protect them via electronic immobilizers. These built-in microchips or transponders transmit signals to the anti-theft system, which then sends a signal that the car can be started. When anyone tries to use the vehicle without these signals, the automobile will not start. It is noteworthy, that many car thieves avoid vehicles with electronic immobilizers.

It’s highly advisable to have a car alarm, which is the most visually effective anti-theft gadget. A lot of potential criminals can be deterred by seeing an alarm sticker. Car alarms have electronic sensors, which will be activated when an automobile is breached: breaking of glass, unauthorized entry, sudden movement, etc. When the sensors detect a threat, a siren activates and alerts the car driver and also other people around. However, if you don’t have a car alarm, you can buy alarm stickers, for potential thieves to think that your vehicle is protected.

In order to secure your car, you can also try VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Etching. Every vehicle has a unique serial number VIN. You can etch your car’s VIN on all important parts and windows. This can deter potential thieves and also can work as a tracking device.

It’s also recommended to use electronic tracking devices, which offer a real-time location of the stolen car using GPS. The two biggest companies of electronic tracking gadgets, are LoJack and OnStar. LoJack has a hidden transmitter in the vehicle, which is activated immediately when a theft is reported. This firm works directly with law enforcement. OnStar provides a similar system, which is standard on all new model vehicles from Audi, Acura, GM, Volkswagen and Isuzu.

PostHeaderIcon Tom Brady Stars in New Aston Martin Commercials

brady-aston

Well, they are not calling it commercials but “content series.” But since the purpose of the series, titled Category of One, is for Tom Brady to promote Aston Martin cars, one would say it qualifies as commercial. At any rate, this sounds like the perfect marriage, kind of like Tom and Gisele’s!

In this long-term partnership record-breaking National Football League, Tom Brady and Aston Martin’s VP & Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman will explore their affinity for The Love of Beautiful. Such combo – Aston and Brady – is guaranteed to make the average person feel terrible about his life, his looks, his car… everything really. But the target audience, the rich and beautiful who are the one capable of buying an Aston, will definitely be inspired by it.

Tom Brady said: “Aston Martin exemplifies dedication to the craft of car making through a meticulous attention to detail. While 104 years of heritage are reflected in each hand-built car, with product from the DB11 to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, this brand is primed to excel for the next 100 years as well. As a long-time fan and driver I am honored to join the Aston Martin team at this special moment in the company’s history.”

PostHeaderIcon Official: VW Up! GTI Concept

VW Up! GTI Concept-0

At this year’s GTI Meet at Lake Wörthersee Volkswagen are treating their fans to something quite special. The VW Up! GTI Concept is a tribute to the original Golf GTI boasting the same kind of performance figures and design cues. Granted, it’s still very much an Up! city car, but the idea is intriguing. 

Actually, VW Up! GTI Concept is more than just an idea. Volkswagen will released a production version of this hot pocket rocket in early 2018. As for what makes it a Golf GTI tribute, well, the car packs a turbocharged engine (TSI) with powerful 230 Nm torque and 115 horsepower. Those are pretty much what the daddy Golf used to offer. What’s more, in spite of having a more rigid built and tons more equipment, the Up! weighs only 997 kg, which again is very GTI-ish. Performance-wise, the concept goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds and tops out at 197 km/h – (original GTI 0 to 100 km/h in 9.0 seconds, top speed: 182 km/h).

Follow our channel for awesome car videos everyday: Subscribe

That’s all great, but the thing that made the original Golf GTI such a hit was not how much power it had but rather how it delivered whatever power it had. They promise the VW Up! GTI Concept is just as fun to drive, but we won’t know that for sure until the production version comes out. In terms of design as well the Up! pays homage to the OG with highlights such as red stripe across the radiator grille with honeycomb pattern and double stripes across the wide side sill panels. It also gets gloss black mirror caps, 17-inch alloy wheels, lowered ride height, a larger roof edge spoiler, a leather-trimmed sport steering wheel, a GTI gear knob and the legendary “clark” seat pattern.

Bentley Bentayga Falconry-0

While the new Bentley Bentayga SUV is not getting much love from the brand’s traditional customer base, it is doing marvelously in new money markets . That is why they go the trouble of making models like this Bentley Bentayga Falconry to cater to those markets and keep them around. 

The Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner is an “accessory” according to the car maker for the ultimate falconry experience aimed at the wealthy desert Sheikhs who are world’s biggest falcon enthusiasts.  The Bentayga Falconry features a bespoke installation in the rear which houses all the equipment required for an enjoyable falconry expedition. It also comes with some nice features inside that add to the luxuriousness and exclusivity of the super deluxe SUV.

Follow our channel for awesome car videos everyday: Subscribe

The main highlights of Bentley Bentayga Falconry by Mulliner include a master flight station and a refreshment case, both trimmed in natural-cork-fabric and housed inside a  movable tray that allows for easy access. Inside the master flight unit is a special Piano Black veneered drawer – with a saker falcon crest – containing bespoke storage for all the equipment required for this unique sport. Beneath this is a laser-embossed Hotspur hide stowage tray with individual compartments for a GPS bird tracking unit, binoculars and hand-crafted leather bird hoods and gauntlets. And yes, Bentley does supply those as well.

If you are not interested in falconry, this Bentayga still has some features that might take your fancy. There is Hotspur-hide-trimmed interior panels, a removable transportation perch and tether on the central armrest, and an exquisite marquetry piece on the dashboard featuring a sweeping desert scene with a soaring saker falcon made from 430 individual pieces of wood sourced from all over the world and hand-crafted over nine days. Bentley did not mention the price of this thing, but given that it will be bought by people who can spend up to a $1,000,000 on a bird, cost is not really an issue.

Finally, after a good deal of teasing, the new 2018 Skoda Karoq compact SUV goes official in Stockholm, providing a replacement for the popular Yeti. The Karoq is a whole different animal tan Yeti, though, a lot more capable and nicer to look at. But hopefully it’ll be just as affordable.

Equipment-wise, the Karoq can be fitted with some tasty options, such as Modular Infotainment Matrix with capacitive touch displays and WiFi hotspot, Skoda Connect mobile online services with emergency services, and SmartLink+ platform, compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. The Skoda Karoq offers a comprehensive range of driver assistance systems. New comfort systems include Park Assist, Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist. Blind Spot Detect, Front Assist with predictive pedestrian protection and Emergency Assist serve to increase safety.

All powertrains feature turbo-charged direct injection units as well as stop-start technology and brake energy recovery. With the exception of the most powerful diesel, all drivetrains can be ordered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed DSG. The 2.0 TDI with 140 kW (190 PS) comes as standard with 4×4 drive and 7-speed DSG. The new 1.5 TSI has the special feature of cylinder deactivation.

After Volvo, who have partnered with Google to make their own Android infotainment system, Now Audi announced they, too, have come up with an integrated Android operating system for their future in-car connectivity needs. Audi’s system will be showcased in the Q8 Sport Concept at Google I/O developer conference which starts today (May 17). 

Here’s a brief overview of what Audi’s Android infotainment system looks like in action. As with other Android-based systems, apps are the main highlight:

The Android infotainment in Audi Q8 Sport Concept offers apps such as streaming service Spotify, Google Play Music and Google Assistant, plus Google Maps which could replace Audi’s own navigation system. Of course, all of these are available on your phone, but the beauty of this system is that it integrates all these online services into the car’s MMI system which means you cna use them driecly from the touch display in the center of the dashboard. Now this could prove a little distracting constantly fondling your screen as you drive along, but hey, this is what people want right now.

audi android-1

As Audi clarifies: “The seamless integration of Android harbors tremendous potential. Android is the world’s most popular mobile platform with more than 1.4 billion active users worldwide. The open Android community’s immense breadth of expertise and creativity can speed up the development of new applications. New apps can quickly find their way into the cars as additional connected services, for example, if they fulfill the requirements of Google and Audi. The foundation for this is the Android platform. Other customer advantages alongside shorter update cycles include a significantly greater diversity of services as well as broad international availability.

2018 bmw m5 xdrive

It is almost time for BMW to release the hot version of the new 5 Series and so they decided to whet our appetite by released a teaser trailer confirming the super sedan’s all-wheel-drive option. That’s right, the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive breaks the tradition of these cars being only rear-drive, but that is not such a bad thing, especially as you can make the car 2WD at the touch of a button. 

You see, the new M xDrive all-wheel-drive system featured in the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive is quite a sophisticated one with a unique governing software BMW is particularly proud of. Granted, there is that familiar BMW complexity as the system offers five different configurations based on combinations of the DSC modes (DSC on, MDM, DSC off) and M xDrive modes (4WD, 4WD Sport, 2WD). But if you get the setting just right this car can take you to motoring nirvana.

Also confirmed for the 2018 BMW M5 xDrive is the 4.4 liter bi-turbo V8 and an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, although performance figures are yet to be revealed. Well, at least we know there is no downsizing for the time being. BMW also promises the acceleration times are going to boggle your mind, and that there is certain naughtiness engineered into the new M5 that makes it not only a perfect family car, but also extremely good one for those rare occasions where you can really use the car’s capabilities. And that’s how an M5 should be: a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

PostHeaderIcon NIO EP9 Sets New Nurburgring Lap Record

nio-ep9-ring-1

It wasn’t that long ago that the new electric super car NIO EP9 shook the auto world by setting the world’s quickest autonomous lap at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas, but already they have broken yet another record. This one was their own, the EP9’s Nurburgring lap record which the new attempt improved by nearly three seconds. 

In this new attempt NIO Ep9, this time with a driver at the wheel, managed to go around the Green Hell in 6 minutes 45.900 seconds. As you can see in the video the lap was largely silent except for wind and tire noise, but you can feel the g forces produced by the car’s 1360PS (1342 bhp) being unleashed even in the footage. The EP9 has a top speed of 313kph (194mph) and accelerates from 0-200kph (0-124mph) in 7.1 seconds.

By now I’m sure you all want one of these NIO EP9s and why wouldn’t you, it’s awesome. But there is a slight problem with that, and that is they are making only ten built-to-order cars each with a base price of 1.48 million USD. So even if you have the money you still may not be able to get one.

nio-ep9-ring-2

“In October 2016, we aimed to set a new lap record for an electric vehicle with our NIO EP9. In the inclemental weather that the Nürburgring Nordschleife is known for, the EP9 completed two laps of the 20.8 km (12.9m) ‘Green Hell’, one of which was in 7m 05.12s, beating the previous EV lap record, making it the fastest electric car in the world. The EP9’s new lap record is 19.22 seconds faster than its previous lap time. This is a fabulous achievement for NIO and I am very proud of the team that has worked tirelessly to achieve this accolade,” said Gerry Hughes, Head of Performance Program & FE Team Principal, NIO.

Vans are not usually associated with glamorous events such as Cannes Film Festival, but that didn’t stop Renault from trying. The event marks the debut of the new Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass, a nine-seat van with innovative features which serves as transportation for customers and VIPs at Cannes.

Renault, of course, has always been good at making people carriers. They have the Espace which practically invented the whole segment. But Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass, they claim, is a whole new chapter in the history of such vehicles. It’s all about the interior space, where as mentioned you can fit up to nine adults. How they seat and where they seat is entirely up to them, since the TRAFIC has a modular design of the seats on rails in rows two and three which enables over 50 different configurations. Didn’t know there were that many.

As for the creature comforts, each passengers will enjoy dark-tinted rear windows, regulated air conditioning, individual LED reading lamps, and exclusive leather upholstery, if you choose the right trim. For example, the “Signature Pack” version of Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass comes with pivoting seats and a removable central tablet containing numerous storage spaces for the full mobile office experience. All versions are equipped with 220V and USB sockets for charging laptops and electronic devices. The driver has not been overlooked, as he or she gets a leather-covered steering wheel, a host of storage compartments, and chrome and gloss-black insert on the dashboard, in addition to a 7-inch screen with MediaNav Evolution navigation system or R-Link Evolution with Android Auto, and reversing camera.

Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass will hit the European market in September 2017.
