Special edition Japan-exclusive Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster 50th Anniversary unveiled

Lamborghini recently introduced the Aventador S Roadster just over a month ago at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. And already, the V12 powered convertible is going to receive a special edition treatment. The 400 GT model was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the raging bulls, and it will only be limited to five cars. Each one of the Japan edition models will be one-offs since the Ad Personam department and the Cento Stile both gave them unique looks that take inspiration from the five natural elements of Japanese culture: earth, wind, fire, water and sky.

The one you can see in the photos, from its official unveiling in Japan, is the “water” edition. On the same day, the Italian marque also came up with the second edition of the Lamborghini Day Concours d’Elegance Tokyo. In this event, Lamborghini displayed a total of 50 cars. A few of the notable models included here are the gorgeous Miura, the Diablo and Countach. Alongside these were vehicles like the restored Miura SV and a 1976 Countach LP. And guess who won the “Best of Show” award? Well, it was the Countach LP. During the event, the automaker also presented scale models of the other four cars based on the remaining elements that will soon be produced.

Let us not veer away from talking about the gorgeous Aventador S Roadster. The exterior livery was finished by a team of ten specialists by around 170 hours. The paint turns out with a nice finish that contrasts with the exposed carbon fiber that is used for the hardtop and the windscreen frame. There is also a ‘50 Japan’ badge near the vehicle’s rear fender.

Audi Japan is raffling off chance to buy R8 Star of Lucis from Final Fantasy XV movie

In a surprising move, the Japanese unit of German premium carmaker Audi AG has produced a real-life version of the so-called “Star of Lucis” from the latest installment of the Final Fantasy gaming franchise.

Gamers from around world are currently waiting for the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XV – a long-awaited JRPG once known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII – on November 29, 2016 on PS4 and Xbox One. In the run-up to the official release of the game, Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company Square Enix released an anime series – Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV – in late March this year.

It was followed in July by a limitedly released CG movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy, which features the voices of Lena Headey and Sean Bean of Games of Thrones and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad. It was in this film that the Audi R8 Star of Lucis – a bespoke personal transport for the Lucis Royal Family – was featured.

BMW Japan releases limited-edition 6 Series Gran Coupe Exclusive Sport

In line with the 100th anniversary celebration of BMW Japan, the brand has once again released another limited-edition model which is the BMW 640i Gran Coupe. Specifically however, this new version will be the 12th such model that is part of the brand’s “Celebration Edition”. The new model will be based on the 640i that has been fitted with the M Sport package.

For the general features, it is easy to see that this Exclusive Sport model does not add anything new considering that all of the add-ons put on it can be applied as well on the standard 6 Series Gran Coupe. The body comes in Sapphire Black Metallic with the alloy 20-inch M wheels. There is also the aluminum side window BMW Individual moldings applied in addition to the M Sport body kit.

On the interior, one can observe that an electric sunroof has been fitted as standard. Then there is the Alcantara headliner, the same one in the BMW Individual catalog. While the dashboard has been wrapped in leather that comes with contrast stitching, the seats are covered in black/cognac Nappa leather. Meanwhile, the brand made sure to give the iDrive controller a ceramic finish. To serve as evidence that this is not your standard 640i Gran Coupe, the interior has the piano black trim that has the Exclusive Sport badge.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 Coupe Limited introduced in Japan

Japan is a special country for Mercedes-Benz, as the German manufacturer unveiled several special editions for this country. You may remember the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Performance Studio and the A45 AMG Petronas Green Edition. Today, Mercedes-Benz introduced in Japan a special edition of the facelifted E-Class Coupe.

As expected, the new vehicle will be available only in Japan and will be based on the E250 Coupe. As you can see from the photos, the E250 Coupe Limited comes with an exterior pack consisting of new front and rear spoilers, side skirts and a new set of five-spoke AMG alloy wheels. Inside, the E250 Coupe comes with Nappa leather on the dashboard and seats, which is usually available only on the E550 and the E350 coupes.

Moreover, the interior is offered in red or beige. Furthermore, the interior features a leather-wrapped wood steering wheel, heated seats and a 360 degrees camera system. Mercedes-Benz will only sell 100 units of the E-Class Coupe Limited, 80 of them will be offered in Polar White while only 20 will feature the Fire Opal (red) exterior colour.

Slowly, bits and pieces about the much anticipated 2019 Supra have come out. Gerald Killmann, Vice President of Research & Development recently spoke about the much awaited revival of the sports car during his interview with AutoRAI, covering a number of topics about the Supra. Here, he revealed several interesting details about the said model.

One thing they learned is that the new Toyota Supra has been developed mostly in Japan, and that Toyota’s European R&D team had a minor contribution. Killmann added that there will be a race car version of the Supra, which is not a big surprise for many, considering the fact that we saw the Gazoo Racing branded concept recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

He then said that the Supra will be sharing the same platform as the BMW Z4, though with a different interior and exterior design. But what really caught our attention during his interview was when he said that the model will be powered by a BMW-sourced engine, though he did not get into more details regarding this. He also said that rumours about a hybrid powertrain believed to be reserved for a range topping version isn’t part of their plan just yet.

If you do get a chance to get your hands on the Range Rover SV Coupe, we would suggest for you to get one because this will remain limited and is likely not going make it into full production.

Earlier this month during the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the SV Coupe was revealed as a limited edition model, and also the most expensive Range Rover with a price tag of $295,995. But recently, we learned that Land Rover has no plans to make production go beyond the 999 units that had been set.

Wayne Darley, senior product marketing manager, stated that to keep the model exclusive, then the best thing they could do is to limit production of the model. By doing so, you are protecting the exclusivity of the model and therefore, these investments are secured. This began with the Project 7 that was inspired by the 250 run Jaguar F-Type which got its roots from the 1950s D Type. That car was once sold for £130,000 (or $183,800), and is now available for over £200,000 (approximately $282,700).

Not a lot may have heard of Lee Iacocca, but we are pretty sure that you all know of his creation - and that would be none other than the Ford Mustang. Iacocca was the former Ford executive that turned the former concept into a reality. Not only did he turn the Mustang into production, but he also groomed it into the icon that we know it today.

To celebrate this, Ford and Galpin decided to come up with a special Mustang to celebrate the nameplate’s 45th anniversary. They named the unique version the Iacocca Silver Edition Mustang, and guess what? It will be sold off this April.

The rear wheel drive sports car will be put up for auction at the Barrett Jackson Palm Beach 2018 sale. It will be a rare treat for collectors as this is one of only 45 examples ever built and it comes with a number of unique design and performance elements to boot. This includes a special plaque in the engine bay to signify its rarity.

Lotus has been developing a new generation of sports cars, but these cars will probably not be available until 2020. So for customers who don’t want to wait too long, the automaker decided that they will sell one last special version of the immortal 3-Eleven 430, or the “most extreme machine” it has ever built.

This will also be highly exclusive as they only have plans of assembling 20 examples, each one carrying a price of £102,000 or approximately $142,000 at current exchange rates.

This 3-Eleven 430 has been equipped with a 3.5 liter V6 engine under its hood, producing as much as 430 horsepower (321 kilowatts) and 324 pound feet (440 Newton metres) of torque. The automaker boasts that in just 3.2 seconds, this model can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour), before it continues to its top speed of 180 miles per hour (290 kilometers per hour).

The Acura NSX, even though it has been produced in the United States, is rightfully claimed as one of its own by the legions of fans in Japan, where it is known as a Honda. For this particular example we are going to talk about, the owner definitely took it even further.

When looking at the images, it seems like the said car has been shot at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market, or some other similar market there. But it isn’t the place that matters, but the subject. As you can see here, this hybrid supercar looks like it is part of the country’s Super GT championship. But Honda is known for having several NSX-GTs in the series’ top GT500 class.

Though this Acura NSX looks a lot like a track focused car, it actually is a road going car. The supercar was modified by Liberty Walk and has been given a full body kit, making it look wider with a meaner demeanor. It had also been given enough aerodynamic enhancements that it will remind you of an air force fighter - blacked out like the one in the photo.

Congested city traffic is a stark contrast to the freedom of marine navigation. But for those who want to experience lavishness in a small urban mobility package like the smart fortwo cabrio, German tuning company Brabus and luxury yacht-maker Sunseeker London Group has an enticing proposition – the new Brabus Smart ForTwo Ultimate Sunseeker Limited Edition “One of Ten.”

The new Brabus Ultimate Sunseeker Limited Edition “One of Ten” is a city sports car jointly created by the collaboration between Brabus and Sunseeker. This limited edition city car -- marking the two brand’s first joint luxury car -- was unveiled during the grand opening of their joint “KÖ90” flagship store in Königsallee 90 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

As a creation of one of the renowned tuners in the automotive world, the Brabus Ultimate Sunseeker Limited Edition “One of Ten” is provided with special sporty elements and some tuning works. Likewise, the limited edition is identified also as a creation of Sunseeker through the Sunseeker logo on the rear and the two mirror triangles as well as a nautical compass on each side of the tridion cell. The limited edition is wrapped in a “Midnight Sapphire” special metallic blue finish that is contrasted at the rear and sides with “Silver Lake Metallic” accents.

It was back in October 2015 when we first saw the Performance version. It served as the ultimate expression of the RS6 Avant that produced as much as 597 horsepower (445 kilowatts) that it got from its biturbo 4.0 liter V8. Now, it is 2018 and there is a new king, thanks to the collaboration between Audi and ABT Sportsline - the Nogaro Edition. There are only 150 examples of this special edition high performance wagon by Ingolstadt.

This special edition model pays tribute to the iconic RS2 model, which was launched in 1994. It is actually considered as the automaker’s first ever RS model. Now, the RS6 Avant Nogaro Edition is finished in Nogaro blue paint (and that is actually where it got its name). To give the body a little bit of a contrast, it also gets some black accents all over its body.

This is finished off with a new set of 21 inch wheels with thick 285/30 tires and of course, we can’t forget the RS titanium exhaust system it has been equipped with to make the most out of the V8 powerhouse.

The McLaren F1 is considered to be one of the most difficult models to get your hands on and it’s even more elusive now especially since its prices have gone up in excess of $10 million when being auctioned.

So instead of letting customers cry over the F1, McLaren Newport Beach decided that they would work with their special division, McLaren Special Operations to give 10 of their customers the next best thing: custom MSO X examples of the 570S Coupe with exterior inspiration from the competition livery of an F1 GTR race car.

When looking at the MSO X 570S from the outside, it is apparent that the model gets inspiration from the 570S GT4 race car, except that they are road legal. The sides of the bumpers now get dive plates, while the competition inspired hood features additional intakes.

There are so many aftermarket tuners out there that have been turning out pretty amazing Land Rover Defenders. It’s their popularity perhaps that has urged the automaker itself to join the throng. In fact, Jaguar Land Rover’s Classic division has built 150 old-style Defenders right in the outskirts of Coventry.

The special edition Defender was made to celebrate 70 years of the iconic off-roader in 2018, before an all new version of the vehicle makes its debut. It’s said to look very different from the current version.

Under the hood of the Defender Works V8 is a 5.0 liter naturally aspirated V8. This carries out as much as 405 horsepower and 515 Newton-metres (380 pound-feet) of torque. This makes it the most powerful officially sanctioned Defender to hit the road. In just 5.6 seconds, it will reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill, and is capable of hitting a maximum limited top speed of 106 miles per hour (170 kilometers per hour).

It’s Star Wars fever once again, and the second installation of the trilogy sequel -- “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” -- is finally hitting theaters. Avid fans of the franchise would love to know that a limited edition Renault Zoe will soon arrive with Star Wars special touches. In partnership with Star Wars, Renault is unleashing the force with the new 2018 Renault Zoe Star Wars Limited Edition electric vehicle.

Just like Anakin Skywalker and Ben Solo becoming Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, respectively, the best-selling EV in Europe has transformed into the Renault Zoe Star Wars special edition. Interestingly, the Zoe Star Wars isn't the first vehicle from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance to use the force. Just last year, Nissan’s mid-size crossover merged into the world of the Jedi by becoming the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars limited edition. That marked the first time that a carmaker officially partnered with the Star Wars franchise. The partnership now continues, but with Nissan’s alliance partner Renault.

To enter the world of the Jedi, the Renault Zoe Star Wars features an exterior covered with a number of decals related to the franchise. For instance, the bonnet, roof and boot of the Renault Zoe Star Wars sport decals starring Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon star ship. Specific Star Wars badging can be found on the front fenders just below the A-pillar, as well as on the door sills.

After having recently released teaser images of the new McLaren Senna, the automaker is finally ready to make a proper unveiling. The Senna, which is part of the Ultimate Series, gets its name from legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna de Silva. It will stand as the automaker’s most track-focused, road legal car. The automaker plans to build only 500 examples of this model, with profits going to the Senna Foundation charity. The Senna has a price tag of £750,000 ($1 million), in the UK, and believe it or not, all 500 units have already been accounted for.

Undoubtedly, the Senna has a unique exterior design. It was made to be very sleek to boost its performance. This model follows the “form follows function” principle, and its shape is meant to reduce drag and boost cooling. This car spent hours in the wind tunnel, a fact that’s quite obvious as soon as you take note of its double rear diffuser to the underfloor scoop and the large rear wing.

The Senna has interesting see-through glass door panels. Furthermore, the carbon ceramic brakes it wears together with the Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires took seven months to assemble. The interior has a minimalist design that boasts a generous amount of carbon fiber. The cabin features goodies like an infotainment system, rearview camera, a foldable driver’s display, and a sound system. Each car will come with tailor-made carbon seats too.

For those of you who are aware of Spyker, you must have heard of the C8 Aileron. The said model has been around for about eight years now and the Dutch automaker has finally decided to give an end to its life. And to give it a proper goodbye, Spyker will produce the final three examples in the racing inspired LM85 spec, together with matching motorsport-inspired liveries.

To achieve this look, the automaker will make use of exposed rivets to attach the LM85’s body panels to the C8 Aileron. It will be given wider fenders as well. The billet aluminum intakes give the exterior a bright flourish. And since the automaker is only going to build three examples of the vehicle, each one of them will be getting a unique paint job.

One of them will be finished in a Jet Black finish with Crimson Red S accents that decorate the body, while the other one is a reverse of the first one, getting a Crimson Red with Jet Black S accents. The third model will be dressed in Jet Black with a Gold S. All three examples will be getting a two-tone leather inside, paired with an aluminum dashboard, accented with Chronoswiss gauges.

The first Step WGN was introduced in Japan in the mid-1990s, and the current model is getting a complete makeover in 2015. For this year’s refresh, the massive van’s front fascia will be tweaked, as it gets a new grille with new LED head lights. On the rear, the Step WGN’s tail gate spoiler has been tweaked to make it look sportier. The updates don’t end there. Under the van’s hood will be a dual-motor sport hybrid system, and it will be given a new suspension tuning too.

As for the safety features, all Step WGN models will be getting Honda Sensing safety systems that come as standard. This system includes adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, Honda LaneWatch. Furthermore, it features blind spot information system, cross traffic monitor, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and many more.

The entire lineup of the Step WGN will include a 1.5 liter turbocharged mill, which doesn’t quite compare to the Spada Hybrid that comes with a 2.0 liter engine for its electric motors. Customers could get it with a front-wheel-drive that comes as standard, but they can also opt for the all-wheel drive - both of these work with a CVT automatic.

For those of you who just placed an order for a new BMW M5 (F90), you might like to pair it with a matching bicycle. The BMW M Bike Limited Carbon Edition is finished in Marina Bay Blue Metallic paint, exactly like that of the sports sedan.

However, if you want this bike, you have to act quickly. That is because it will be limited to 500 units only, each of which will be priced at 1,400 euros (around $1,674). The bicycles are made with hydro-formed aluminum frame, while the fork, the seat posts and spacers are all made of carbon fiber to reduce overall weight. For easier braking, it gets a set of hydraulic Shimano disk brakes.

As we all know, the BMW M5 comes equipped with a 4.4 liter biturbo engine that enables it to give out 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-metres) of torque. The M5 is more powerful than its predecessor, which has an output of 575 horsepower (428 kilowatts) and 500 pound-feet (677 Newton meters) of torque.

While the FJ Cruiser was no longer sold in the US since 2014 with the Trails Teams Edition being its final model, Toyota has now decided to terminate its production altogether. But before the FJ Cruiser takes its final bow, Toyota will first produce the stylish SUV’s Final Edition which is to be offered exclusively in Japan. If you still don’t have it, now is your last chance.

A little over ten years since the FJ Cruiser first came to the US, the SUV will be exclusively sold to its home market as the Final Edition. In other words, you won’t find a single copy of this in the US or anywhere else which makes it even more special. The FJ was available in America from 2007 up to 2014 only. While the Japan-spec has been around for as long as we can remember, the last batch for production will be featuring a special set of 20- inch alloy wheels, a model-exclusive side steps, a redesigned rear bumper with flog lights and a fender mounted left view mirror.

The FJ Cruiser Final Edition, which will only come in all- beige color both at the exterior and the interior will have some few black accents to spice things up a bit. At the same time, the retro-inspired SUV has been enhanced inside and out for a distinctively modern touch. However, some things stayed the same. Like for example, under the hood comes the 4.0-liter V6 gas engine mated to a five-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to both the SUV’s front and rear wheels. Everything about the exterior still feels very retro, judging by the color and the shape of the vehicle. We could go on by saying there’s nothing quite so modern about its interior too. But changing it entirely will take away the whole essence of the FJ Cruiser.

In an exclusive speaking engagement with Car Advice during the ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Lamborghini’s Maurizio Reggiani hints at introducing what he calls as the new version of a one-off supercar, even adding that this one-off could be completely sold prior to its revelation. This is comparable to the case of Centenario, which they had introduced with rear wheel steering and which was later on adapted into the Aventador S when it came into production. The director for research and development also said that the company is set to announce some new technologies to go with Lamborghini’s new design. The imminent announcement, he said, is what Lamborghini’s loyal patrons have actually been waiting for.

It can be recalled that Lamborghini had done this previously with the Sesto Elemento, the Veneno Roadster, the Concept J as well as for both the Reventon and the Reventon Roadster. As they did with the Centenario, the soon-to-be-revealed one-off will take the lead in introducing Lamborghini’s future design and technologies. Inevitably, it should give us a first look at the Aventador replacement that is due for release in 3 years.

No concrete details have been confirmed during the talks but Car Advice knew that the Lamborghini Urus will be revealed sometime this December. In the same way, it is likely the new one-off (which is currently without a name yet) will be introduced later within the year while the official public debut will probably have to wait until 2018. At the most, we should be expecting Lamborghini’s one-off supercar at next year’s Geneva Motor Show together with the new Urus.
