Team Galag from Saudi Arabia showed pictures of their custom made Batmobile Tumbler. This cross between a tank and a Lamborghini created based on the movie “Batman: The Dark Knight.” The car will take part in recreational racing Gumball 3000. The Arabian company is going to show the car in London, and then it will make his debut in Copenhagen, where on May 18th the Gumball 3000 race stars. It is reported that the Tumbler will be powered by a 6.2-liter twin-turbo V8 …continue reading
In order to celebrate their 65 year anniversary, apart from the sumptuous birthday party held at Packington Estate (on the very grounds where Land Rover’s contributions to the world of off-roading were tested from the first 1948 model all the way through the 1970s,) with birthday cake delivered by a Lynx military helicopter, Land Rover launched Land Rover LXV Defender SE, the LXV anniversary edition. This birthday boy has a 2.2-liter diesel and six-speed manual, 16-inch Sawtooth wheels, leather seats and unique badging.
Since 2009, the Rolls-Royce Ghost has outsold the brand’s flagship Phantom – kind of odd, considering the fact that a ghost is in no way better than a phantom, conceptually speaking. However, seeing this, Rolls-Royce moves The Ghost into the 2013 model year with a bunch of “subtle but meaningful enhancements”. Which is corporate talk for “it looks the same but hey, an extra button was added on the dashboard!” If you’re thinking of buying one of these babies, note that the prices went up $7,050 for the standard model, to $260,750, and $6,400 for the long-wheelbase car, to $300,100 from the start of 2013.
This is one sweet ride. Look at it. It looks like it’s about to bite through that entire desert and then expel all the dust through its exhaustion pipes of doom. It will, however, probably remain in the concept car limbo, where many wonderful cars go to die and be forgotten. The cool thing about it is that it’s actually thought out, as far as cars go. That roof rack thing is actually … continue reading
This wonderful concept has recently been finalized and released by designer Steel Drake. With futuristic edges and sharp contrasts, the new SF1 Mercedes Benz looks (and probably feels) like the future. Let’s just hope it’s an immediate one, as opposed to having to wait for this to hit the market at full throttle.
This four-door coupe is bigger (4.4 inches (111 mm) longer than its 2-door coupe sibling), better and, perhaps, more good-looking. (not to mention the big 4+1 seats that can fit your entire family… provided that the tall ones sit in the front, because the curved roof makes the back seats suitable for short people only. Unless you like sitting in weird positions. Cause that’s cool too.)
BMW i. Born electric.
Meet the new concept car from BMW, the BMW i. It has the ability of ensuring full e-mobility in almost every situation, offering a very convenient home-charging platform. Instead of hauling your car to the nearest gas station, the ‘refueling’ of the BMW i will be more of an intuitive sort of action – like charging your phone or laptop. Your car will become just another electric gadget that needs recharging from time to time. And the environment will love it.
Aston Martin’s range-topping Vanquish, based on the AM 310 concept shown at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, is a celebratory model used to mark the company’s centenary and only a few months away from an official reveal (which will be at the 2012 Paris Auto Show in September).
Much testing has been underway, a prototype being spotted at the Nürburgring and on some of its surrounding roads. Modern, with an aggressive look, this 6-liter V12 and 565 HP supercar breaks the 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds, yet still focusing on lightweight construction rather than on outspeeding its competition.
