BMW 7 Series celebrates 40 years with limited edition 40 Jahre

BMW will be releasing a limited edition 7 Series in the same way that the 3 Series and 5 Series models got their own anniversary editions from the previous years. The BMW 7 Series Edition 40 Jahre, which is limited to only 200 examples, will be manufactured at BMW’s Dingolfing plant in Germany. Interestingly, this is also where the 7 Series was born and has been produced since 1977.

In line with the celebration of its 40th year, BMW is offering two special paint variants exclusively available from its very own Individual catalogue. Customers can choose between the Petrol Mica metallic (7 Series’ original body color) and the Frozen Silver metallic body paint. Its array of enhancements will include the brand’s high gloss Shadow Line trim, a new set of BMW Individual light V-spoke alloy wheels, as well as BMW’s M Aerodynamics Package. All limited-run 7 Series 40 Jahre also come with specially marked B-pillar coverings and door pillars to underline the segment’s 40 years of existence.

BMW’s Individual package is prominent as well inside the cabin such as the brand’s soft premium leather upholstery. The choices available are either in Smoke White/Black or Smoke White/Cohiba two color combinations. Any color scheme selected comes with a pair of limited edition comfort cushions in Smoke White which includes floor mats and Alcantara headliner of the same color. Depending on the choice of upholstery combination, the floor mat’s edging can be had either in brown or black while the accents can be availed either in Piano black lacquer or Smoke brown woodgrain.

Mansory gives the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne an array of impressive power and style upgrades

Bentley Mulsanne is Mansory's latest project to date, and it looks much more stylish compared to some of the last ones they have tuned.

The ultra luxurious Mulsanne has been given just the right amount of facelift with additional carbon fiber details from the front bumper lip spoiler, and fog lamps surround. More carbon has been added in the form of side skirts, boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser.

What completes the new look of the limo would be the huge set of 22-inch forged wheels hugged by 285/35Z ultra-high performance tires on the front and rear axles. The hot wheels were of course, recommended by Mansory.

Land Rover will produce new flagship model to rival Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan

The uber-luxurious sports utility vehicle market is definitely growing quickly, Bentley has its own Bentayga and Rolls-Royce is now prepping the Cullinan. And now, it seems that Land Rover wants a piece of the action by possibly expanding their lineup with a SUV that will sit on top of the current range topper, the Range Rover SV Autobiography.

The juicy details are not really that crystal clear at this point in time due to the fact that it is still a question mark if the Land Rover "SUV" will be a completely different model or just another luxurious trim for the Range Rover. By far, the most expensive and premium Land Rover model was the Range Rover Holland and Holland, which costs around £180,000 in United Kingdom and $244,500 in United States.

Unfortunately, the SUV is no longer available as it was only released for a limited time only. The Tata Motors-owned company does not have a vehicle to rival the Bentley Bentayga as of the moment, but this could possibly change in the following years as this uber-premium range topper is being planned. Furthermore, a Mercedes-Maybach marked SUV will supposedly be produced in the next years to come.

Aston Martin Residences to rise high in Miami

After the German automotive brand opened the new Porsche Design Tower along Collins Avenue in Miami, it’s Aston Martin’s turn to construct a towering condominium, this time along Miami’s Biscayne Bay Boulevard just beside the InterContinental hotel.

Aston Martin announces its recent partnership with G and G Business Residences in designing the new Aston Martin luxury condominium in Miami, Florida. Like Porsche, the British luxury sports car manufacturer is also setting out with a new venture into real estate development.

Aston Martin Residences will come with 391 luxury condo units, ranging from 700 square feet one-bedroom apartments to 19,000 square feet duplex penthouses with their own private pools. Other than offering a good view of the ocean, the tower’s 55th floor also offers an infinity pool for all owners to enjoy. The prices for each unit starts at $600,000 and goes up to $50 million.

After Rolls-Royce unveiled the Sweptail at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, X-Tomi Design now reimagines the most expensive car ever built as a convertible. Yes, it’s the same controversial Rolls-Royce with a price tag of $13 million commissioned by a special client!

Having been inspired by the yachts and swept tail models between the 1920s and 1930s, the client requested Rolls-Royce to make a car with surfaces similar to the hull of a yacht.

As for Xtomi’s latest interpretation, the Sweptail convertible nearly has all the footings of a Phantom Drophead Coupe. Albeit the fact that the coachbuilder has already rolled out its “Last of Last” edition in Saudi Arabia just the previous month. To best describe the Sweptail, the coupe’s massive bodywork with exceptionally designed boat tail comes with panoramic glass roof and extravagant interior that can only seat two people. Little did we expect that it can look just as nice as a cabriolet with rear seats.

Bentley is one of the most prominent and most revered names in the automotive industry. It is one of the most favored British classics with unparalleled abilities performance-wise and of course, in terms of customer service. Recently, Bentley has been stepping up the latter by offering the new Bentley On-Demand service. It is a new and innovative luxury connected-mobility service that is designed to provide “luxury mobility solution” to their customers in any location of their choice without having to go through the inconvenience of traditional car rental services.

What does this new Bentley On-Demand service offer? Well, as its name suggests: members may request for a Bentley to be delivered at a time and place of their choice. It’s like a rent-a-car program that exclusively caters to Bentley owners. So, for days when the good old Mulsanne doesn’t feel posh enough to get you through your errands, the Bentley On-Demand service is the way to go.

How do existing Bentley owners access or avail of this concierge service? First step is to download the Bentley Network app, and then owners are asked to validate their account. Once the app is downloaded and the account validated, the users may then browse through an extensive range of luxury Bentley models available and reserve their choice and specify a convenient location for the delivery. An hour before delivery, a “courteous reminder” of the said reservation is sent to the customer and prior to the arrival of the vehicle, the customer is once again notified prior to the arrival of the vehicle to inform them of the concierge’s (and the car’s) arrival. These steps ensure that there will be minimal disruption on the part of the customer.

Behold, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail! The Sweptail is probably the biggest two-seater car that has ever been built. It may look odd at first glance, and you may not be fond of its design, especially the front end of the car, but it’s true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This specific model was exclusively built for a “Rolls-Royce connoisseur” so it you aren’t one, then this car won’t probably be attractive to you.

We don’t know the identity of the person who made this car possible, but without a doubt he is powerful enough to have Rolls-Royce build him a single car with his own design in mind, and that he has at least nine zeros in his bank account. Though the company did not reveal who the individual was, we know that it is a guy because that’s what they said in the press release. He was described as a “connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft”.

The buyer went up to the company and asked them to build a car that was inspired by the 1920s and 1930s Rolls-Royce, which explains the extravagant shape reminding us of a vintage Rolls-Royce Boat Tail speedster. The individual had worked with the company for years on the design of the car, turning the ride into a two-seater with a wood mid-shelf replacing the back seats that feature an illuminated glass lip. There is also a polished wood hat shelf with luggage rails covered by a teardrop-shaped glass roof, giving a bright and airy cockpit. On the front and rear ends, are polished “08” badges. We don’t know yet for sure what they signify.

We do know that a few people are not into animal leather. In today’s world, more and more people are learning to stay away from leather or anything that would cost an animal’s life, and veganism is not just limited to what we consume.

So as an automotive company, how do you cope with this change? We know that they usually just offer fabric or leather to finish off the seats and the cabin of their cars. But guess what? Bentley is way ahead of its competitors and according to Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design, the company has already been exploring several vegan-friendly options for upholsteries and trims. This is part of their plan to produce more eco-friendly vehicles in the near future, and by that I don’t just mean hybrid or electric vehicles, though that is still part of the plan.

During the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit, Sielaff said that “you can’t sell an animal containing product like a Bentley, with 20 leather hides, to someone with a vegan lifestyle” - and clearly, this is where their idea rooted from. These customers ask the company for leather alternatives that they can offer, so if they want to make a sale, then they will have to keep up with changing trends. Even if this means they have to begin from research and development - just to keep customers satisfied, especially if your company offers custom-made solutions to customers.

Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company, takes a step further from their usual designs as they unveiled the G90 Special Edition - a vehicle that represents a marriage of luxury and technology. Hyundai also announced new developments at the latest Seoul Motor Show this week.

Dressed in a two-tone paint finish, the G90 Special Edition showcased three different versions. The first one came in a metallic brown and matte grey combo, the other one was a matte grey and silver, and last but not the least, a metallic blue and solid white finish - all of these colour combinations were “inspired by a finely-tailored gentleman’s pin-stripe suit” according to the company.

We strongly feel like the South Korean automaker is shying away from conservative designs and instead is leaning towards something different this time. The Special Edition vehicle features an upgraded interior with Nubuck leather trim, accent stitching, upgraded carpeting, and more. While each of them has a hand-painted coach line running all around the sides of the vehicle’s exterior. At first glance, you would think it is a Bentley. You’ll just be surprised that it is a Genesis when you have a closer look. Perhaps it’s because the former design director of Bentley, Luc Donckerwolke, has been leading the design brand since early last year.

Rolls-Royce is well-known for displaying superior engineering quality in its models and for focusing on luxury cars. Despite being the symbol of elegance, one customer was apparently not satisfied and asked the automaker to have a customized version that is clearly ahead of the others. Fortunately, Rolls-Royce agreed to do the work and even better, the customer agreed to have it displayed during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Using the Ghost as a base version, the custom-made one is called the Ghost Elegance. So what makes this truly unique then? Well in addition to having the wheelbase extended, this limousine is covered in paint made from real diamonds. Dubbed as Diamond Stardust, the process of making this special paint involved crushing thousands of diamonds. It comes as no surprise then that the end product has the luster and glamor that is truly unmatched.

According to Rolls-Royce, this special finish is a result of two months of work done by specialists who looked at diamonds using microscopes in order to know how they would interact with the light. The fine diamond powder that they made was then mixed to clear paint. An addition layer of lacquer was then applied to it in order for it to have a smooth finish. Applying the paint took a total of two additional days compared to how much time the automaker uses in painting their other models.

While the release of the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet signaled the end of the G-Wagen, the good news is that this also marks the beginning of a new range. For the next model to come out of this range, Peisert Design is offering a glimpse into this lavish and long sedan.

Conceived by none other than Jan Peisert, he dubs this as the Mercedes-Maybach 850 Landaulet. Using the Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan as a basis, he adds in the exceptional cues of the Maybach 6 concept, the same car presented in April 2016. This combination results in a concept that has long overhangs in the front and the rear section while having an elegant form worthy of the Maybach name.

Looking at the front, the grille comes with a style that brings to mind the Maybach 6 Concept. There are vertical chrome inserts which are highlighted with the illuminated Maybach logo and which show if the car is in normal driving mode or under the "Chauffeur" mode. Instead of using mirrors, there are now rear view cameras resulting in the aerodynamics being improved. The addition of the shiny LED headlights gives it that added aggressive appearance.

Bentley once again confirmed its plans to push PHEV into their future lineups. As a matter of fact, the Bentayga SUV will be the first to have the plugin hybrid technology, which will also be using a V6 engine. Next on the line would be none other than the new generation Bentley Continental GT. And there’s more to come.

During a recent press interview with Automotive News, Wolfgang Duerheimer reiterated the fact that plugin hybrids no longer serve as “temporary bridge technology”. Instead, it now offers the best features of both cars with internal combustion engine as well as those of electric powered vehicles.

The CEO also considers the fact that the upcoming plugin variants would be their answer to the consumers who want to use their cars to go to places where gasoline and diesel engines would no longer be allowed.

Things are looking good at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars as the British luxury carmaker impressed by posting a six-percent jump in deliveries in 2016. Rolls-Royce’s 2016 deliveries of 4,011 units in the full year 2016 was the carmaker’s second highest annual sales ever, showing that the luxury marque is still one of the most sought in over 50 countries around the world.

The carmaker posted record sales in single markets like Japan (plus 51 percent), Germany (plus 30 percent) and the United Kingdom (plus 26 percent). Rolls-Royce also surpassed previous sales high in China (plus 23 percent) and the United States (plus 10 percent). Rolls-Royce also logged record sales in several global markets. It managed to grow its deliveries in 2016 in the Americas by 12 percent, Europe by 28 percent, and Asia Pacific by five percent.

However, the British luxury carmaker failed to make significant advances in the Middle East, no thanks to economic and political uncertainty in the region that lowered demand for all luxury goods. Nonetheless, the Middle East was Rolls-Royce’s third largest market in 2016. Moreover, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dubai managed to deliver the most number of luxury vehicles in the year.

Daimler Group CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche somehow confirmed that there will be a new SUV in their lineup. This announcement came from the CEO himself while on a press meeting at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Unfortunately, he didn’t go over the details. According to Zetsche, “I’d like to say you will be seeing it, but I’ll leave it at that.”

According to rumors, the luxury SUV will be wearing a Maybach badge. If that’s the case, the SUV will be among Mercedes’ Maybach division which also includes the limited edition S650 Cabriolet. For sure, not everyone would be pleased with the idea but some people would also want an SUV with all the luxurious appointments. Even if it gets delayed for a few more years, we think a Mercedes-Maybach SUV would be more than amazing.

Besides, don’t you think it’s about time that Mercedes-Benz comes up with an ultra-posh SUV? In any case, the German brand’s luxury sport utility vehicle will be pitted against Lamborghini’s Urus, Rolls Royce’s Cullinan and of course, Bentley’s Bentayga model.

Audi is bent on building a full electric version for the 2018 Audi A8 model. This next generation of Audi A8 is currently under development and will be the series’ fourth instalment to date. Audi will be releasing the full details of the SUV sometime by the end of next year.

Much has been said about the new A8 and how it will be taking its cue from Audi’s Prologue concept vehicles. Thus, we can get a good picture of it somehow. Technically speaking, the upcoming Audi A8 will be using the MLB evo blueprint otherwise known as the MLB 2. Some Bentley Bentayga vehicle models have already used the same architecture as with the Volkswagen Group’s A4 and Q7.

Soon after Audi introduces the new A8 model, the German brand will shift their attention to manufacturing the Audi e-tron in Belgium. The e-Tron is Audi’s first all-electric vehicle. Having said that, the e-tron is also an electric SUV and will be sharing the same MLB evo platform just like the one used in Audi’s Q7.

Ford revealed that the luxury versions of its Edge and Kuga SUVs are expected to hit the different European markets. Under the Vignale lineup, Ford is more than determined to entice customers to shy away from choosing the standard premium brands. In order to achieve this goal, the brand will be offering both the Edge and the Kuga under exclusive specifications that make use of materials having high quality. Examples of these, to name a few, are the unique colors for the exterior, the use of the Windsor tuxedo-stitched leather for the interior, and the upscale detailing. Ford will even be offering a grille that comes in a hexagonal design and that are exclusive for the Vignale range.

In terms of power delivery, the Kuga Vignale will offer the EcoBoost 1.5-liter petrol engine with one version capable of delivering output of 150 PS (148 hp) and the second having output of 182 PS (179 hp). The latter engine though will be paired solely with the AWD and the automatic 6-speed transmission. Offered as well are the TDCi 2.0-liter diesel engine with one displaying an output of 150 PS (148 hp) and the other 180 PS (177 hp). Unlike the petrol engine, both diesel units are offered, as an option, the AWD and automatic 6-speed transmission. Meanwhile the Edge Vignale will have two powertrains, both powered by diesel. The first is the TDCi 2.0-liter engine with output of 177 hp and paired to the manual 6-speed transmission. Meanwhile the second unit is the TDCi 1.0-liter twin-turbo engine having an output of 207 hp and coupled with the brand’s very own automatic Powershift twin-clutch transmission.

In terms of size, the Edge is larger when compared to the Kuga and some features include alloy 19-inch wheels polished in aluminum, the front grille having a dark matter finish, and the fog lamps finished in chrome. Similar to the Kuga, customers can select for the Edge a wide range of distinct colors for the exterior with one of them being the Vignale Ametista Scura, which is a rich metallic brown tint.

For almost a century, Bentley has been one of the leading luxury motorcar manufacturers. It has always prided itself for producing hand-built luxury vehicles that have been given a lot of time and effort by their resident designers, craftsmen and engineers. In terms of putting together technology and timeless elegance, Bentley is already an expert of this field. Its production and manufacturing houses create some of the world’s most classic and expensive cars, some of which have served high-profile personalities like Queen Elizabeth.

Last year, Bentley introduced to the world an SUV that was beyond all others of its kind. The Bentley Bentayga is a classic offering into the realm of SUVs, living proof that not all SUVs are the stereotypical soccer mom service vehicle. What most of us do not know is that there is more to the Bentayga than meets the eye, more than its authoritarian exterior or even the 600 horsepower under its hood.

The name “Bentayga” is a combination of the company founder’s name and the Taiga, a biome that is typically found in the northern hemisphere.

The process of building a car is a long and tedious task especially for luxury lines. Cars such as Rolls-Royce are known to have been meticulously and painstakingly made compared to common commercial cars. These vehicles tend to consume more time than it takes to build mainstream cars and need more resources to make the parts.

Now, the world as we know it is constantly changing at a rapid pace which means that technology has evolved to become proportional to time. Time has been a very important factor in the production industry especially in the automotive world where various automakers have to compete among themselves to produce the latest technology. With new technologies on the rise, the mass production of vehicles has become faster thus resulting to lower production time and lower cost. Moreover, production is increased which translates to more sales.

One of the most recent technological innovations slowly taking root in various production plants is the process called Additive Manufacturing or what we commonly call 3D Printing. Back then we thought that it would be impossible to print a three-dimensional object in real life but now it has been made possible. In fact, it has been used in various industries including the automotive world.
