Gerry McGovern says Beckham exaggerated the role she played in designing the car. Land Rover ’s design director Gerry McGovern has hit out at Victoria Beckham – claiming the ex-Spice Girl exaggerated the role she played in designing the Evoque VB special edition. Speaking at the launch of the car in 2012, Beckham said: “I’ve designed a car that I want to drive, a car I think [husband] David wants to drive.” But, five years later, McGovern – who did design the Evoque – has told reporters that the star spoke out of turn while revealing the limited edition SUV which featured rose gold highlights and a bespoke his-and-hers luggage set.

Get one while you can. BMW is offering Japan something special, but it’s only available for a limited time. Last week, the company announced it’d be offering an 8 Series Gran Coupe Collector’s Edition that’ll only be on sale in the country until the end of June. BMW builds its special four-door coupe on top of the 840i Gran Coupe with the M Sport package, though all the upgrades are visual in nature, leaving the inline-six alone. The special edition’s hallmark is subtle chrome trim used inside and out. BMW limits the exterior color choices to four: Tanzanite Blue, a brilliant blue; Dravite Grey, a fine gray; Aventurine Red, a deep red; and Azurite Black, a special BMW Individual color. Azurite Black is a premium color option that costs an extra ¥210,000 ($1926 at current exchange rates) on top of the Collector’s Edition’s ¥15.1million ($138,549) price tag . Another visual upgrade is the chrome bi-color 20-inch M light alloy wheels. Gallery: BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe … [Read more...] about BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe Gets Special Collector’s Edition In Japan
It can sprint to 62 in under 2 seconds. Nearly a year ago, then Elektron Innovativ introduced its electric supercar, the Elektron One , which boasted eye-watering 1,341 horsepower (1,000 kilowatts) from its zero-emission propulsion. It was supposed to debut in the metal at the Geneva Motor Show this year, but we all know that isn't happening. Now called Elektron Motors, another concept from the German-based company has been previewed in an official release. Meet the Elektron Quasar – also an all-electric hypercar that makes way more than the first previewed model. Gallery: Elektron Quasar 11 Photos According to the Elektron, the Quasar hypercar is bound to produce a total system output of over 2,300 hp (1,715 kW), motivated by four electric motors, presumably one on each wheel.

Another van build with exceptional functionality. We’ve covered quite a few van builds on Motor1 , and this 1994 Dodge Ram conversion is packed to the gills with functional design. It’s no surprise that these vehicles are all about efficiently using the space on offer, but this build takes it to another level. Starting with the rooftop deck, it unlocks a normally untapped hangout area. While the roof is often just wasted space in a van – aside from maybe storing non-essential items – this build allows for a hammock and four chairs all to be deployed on a wood-lined roof deck. Passengers can easily gain access to the roof accommodations via a ladder on the side of the vehicle. Gallery: 1994 Dodge Ram Van 9 Photos The van itself is a two-wheel-drive variant of the Dodge Ram van, advertised with 80,000 miles on the odometer. While the van comfortably seats … [Read more...] about This Dodge Ram Camper Has An Awesome Trick Up Its Sleeve
