If you're fascinated by the absolutely bonkers, 1980s-era Lamborghini LM002 like we are, it's hard not to hope the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus is a proper sequel to the late, great, notorious sport 'ute. The new silhouette is far friendlier than the '80s-era jumble of trapezoidal planes and, more crucially, this time around motivation comes from a much more powerful twin-turbo V8, not a massive V12 as it was the wild, Countach-powered LM. So where does the Urus sit in the supercar-on-stilts spectrum? We traveled to Rome and tackled road, track and trail to find out. While the Cheetah that begat the LM002 was intended to serve as a legit military vehicle, the Urus's faceted sheetmetal is wrapped around the Volkswagen Group's MBL EVO platform, a modified version of the steel and aluminum chassis found in the Audi Q8, Bentley Bentayga, and Porsche Cayenne. Though you'll find some Lamborghini styling elements sprinkled throughout including the jagged nose, angular wheel arches, hexagonal … [Read more...] about 2019 Lamborghini Urus First Drive Review: The prodigal son of Rambo Lambo

The title is self-explanatory. It’s a 12-step guide to stress-free living. Chapter titles include: “Rule 3: Make friends with people who want the best from you” and “Rule 8: Tell the truth — or, at least, don’t lie” and “Rule 12: Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street.” Psychologist Peterson might have added Rule 13: Buy a Toyota. Toyota has kept auto buyers off the shrink couch for decades. The brand has been synonymous with chaos-free reliability as it scooped up award after dependability award. It’s no wonder, then, that the Toyota RAV4 in my driveway is the best-selling non-pickup in the United States. A staggering 407,594 were sold last year.

Rather than a raucous V8 or V6 under the long, sculpted bonnet, there's a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine. https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/cars/review-is-jaguar-ftype-fourcylinder-convertible-the-new-top-cat-36659483.html https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/incoming/article36671105.ece/e7e11/AUTOCROP/h342/17750525-1.jpg Email It's a Jaguar F-Type, but not quite as you know it. Rather than a raucous V8 or V6 under the long, sculpted bonnet, there's a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine. While that may not sound like enough for a red-blooded convertible, Jaguar claims that it's got what it takes to instil the F-Type with proper performance. This is the convertible version too, meaning drop-top thrills and wind-in-your-hair experiences with slightly better economy figures than you'd find with the more high-powered … [Read more...] about Review: Is Jaguar F-Type four-cylinder convertible the new top cat?
Mercedes-Benz launched the new face lifted S-Class in India in end February, and recently we were invited to drive and experience it in Hyderabad. At the unbelievably majestic Falaknuma Palace that is now one of the world's finest luxury heritage hotels. One could not ask for a better setting to be introduced to what is also referred to as the world's best car. The night before getting into the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz hosted a dinner for us at the Falknuma Palace's '101 Dining Hall'. This is the world's largest dining hall with seating for over 100 people on the table! The stately venue which was once home to the Nizam of Hyderabad, back then the world's richest man, has sophisticated wood interiors and ornate crystal chandeliers, and exquisite acoustics that enable you to hear whispers from one corner of the room to another. Watch what you say Bob, watch what you say. After a splendid evening and a comfortable night spent in the palatial room, I finally got into the new face lifted … [Read more...] about 2018 Mercedes-Benz S350d first drive review
A good two weeks have passed between the time I drove the Range Rover Velar and penned this review. In this time, it has grown on me. The vehicle we drove and what you see here, does not give the best impression of the Velar - the grey is quite dull and lacks some of the cosmetic sheen that you can otherwise specify on the options list. I was starting to feel that its platform cousin, the Jaguar F-Pace, feels more desirable. But then I saw a Range Rover Velar late in the night, slowly appearing out of a dark alley, wearing a red color on the body and gloss black on the roof and the wheels. What a sight! It looked sinister and how. If I were to buy one that is exactly how I would like it. The Velar also happens to be one of the few European SUVs I spotted in Fujairah when I was in the Middle East recently, and in typical Range Rover fashion, its sophisticated form looked right at home even with sand dunes and rocky mountains in the backdrop. Design But is it a true-blooded Range Rover? … [Read more...] about Range Rover Velar P250 road test review
