Genesis is the newest brand trying to take a piece of a global luxury-vehicle market still dominated by German makers. Last night, in New York City, the Korean brand debuted its first-ever electric car concept. Unusually these days, the Genesis Mint Concept isn’t a crossover utility vehicle. Instead, Genesis imagined its first electric car as a tiny, low, sleek two-person coupe with a radically stripped-down interior. Few technical details were provided, though Genesis cited 200 miles of battery range. It also said the Mint concept includes 350-kilowatt charging—an ultrafast rate that won’t roll out on any vehicle until next year. Urban car that’s not a box Still, the Genesis Mint remains a different take on an urban car. Most vehicles in that category are short and upright—think Smart ForTwo or Mini Cooper—rather than low, sleek coupes.

DONALD Trump showed off his new bomb-proof limo known as 'The Beast' as he barrelled through his hometown to the UN. The Secret Service posted a picture of the £1.1million Cadillac, which is armed with tear gas canisters, as the monster car made its way through the Big Apple. Taking to social media they posted: "The Secret Service is ready to roll into #UNGA 2018!" The custom-built Cadillac appeared for the first time in public over the weekend - along with its identical twin which also travels in the motorcade. General Motors hasn’t revealed the specifics of the new decked-out motor, but based on previous models it is known to be heavily armoured. Kevlar run-flat tyres ensure the car can keep on rolling even if one of them gets punctured. Eight inch armour plating, making the doors weigh the same as those on a Boeing 757, five inch thick multi layered windows, and a blast proof undercarriage make it virtually impenetrable. The interior is sealed against … [Read more...] about Donald Trump shows off his new £1.1million bomb-proof ‘Beast’ limo as he bulldozes through New York to UN summit
April 6, 2018 by ponycargirl Leave a Comment With a major emphasis on electric vehicles, a slightly pared-down New York International Auto Show opened its doors to media on the Wednesday and Thursday before the Easter / Passover weekend. True to trend, some of the major launches happened off-site in the days leading up to the official media days, while some skipped any sort of event at all. The North Hall was closed and many of the major automaker booths were conspicuously smaller than previous years, there were still some notable launches. Toyota kicked the media frenzy off with the new 2019 RAV4, but the real star was the hot little Corolla hatch. First off – manual transmission. I don’t think I really have to type anything else after that, but for word count purposes, it’s 2.0 L Four-Cylinder, Six-Speed iMT Manual Transmission. Also featured is Amazon Alexa integration for creepy laughing when down shifting. Volkswagen showed up with a pick-up truck. A LIT … [Read more...] about New York International Auto Show – It’s Electric!

This successor of the RS4 sedan continues to lock horns with the Mercedes-AMG C63 S coupe and the BMW M4.

The Audi RS 5 Sportback will be initially available in dealerships in the USA and Canada from the second half of 2018. The 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback looks a lot more sportier and appealing than the RS4 sedan The new Audi RS 5 Sportback gets a longer wheelbase, short overhangs and long, wraparound engine hood.
