Lamborghini and Synthetic Fuel - A Solo but Parallel Journey

Lamborghini and Synthetic Fuel - A Solo but Parallel Journey

We’ll see their first all-electric model by 2028. How else can the Italian supercar giant shape their long-term sustainability?

Laws in the European Union expect all new vehicles to be zero emission by 2035. Lamborghini is looking for alternatives to keep their iconic combustion engines alive. The brand does already have a fully-electric vehicle planned down the pipeline by 2028. Yet, they don’t want that to mean the death of their high-revving, high emotion heritage.

Thus, the Italian manufacturer has started a project for the development of synthetic fuels. Their VW Group sister company, Porsche, has launched a similar venture this year. Why have the two companies not decided to collaborate? This is where the situation gets a bit complicated. Thanks to an Australian news source, we explain more details about these new projects.

This X5 M Rendering Shows How BMW Could Raise the Bar for Performance SUVs

A facelift is enough for this performance SUV to pack an even bolder look

Performance SUVs like the BMW X5 M will be a great choice if you are both an enthusiast and a family man. The current-selling fourth-generation X5 was introduced for the 2020 model year in the U.S. and is an absolute powerhouse with decent practicality. However, while it has won many hearts, BMW thinks the mid-size SUV needs a makeover. The upcoming X5 M prototype has been spotted near the Nürburgring several times since 2021, and the overall design behind the camouflage looks more aggressive. But now we can thank Kolesa.ru for being more ambitious and rendering the possible X5 M from the future.

No Drama: The Future BMW M3 EV Will Be Revolutionary In Every Way

The M division might unleash a mad M3 possibly by the end of 2025

BMW’s performance division is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, and we are months away from the launch of the M2 Coupe and its second M-specific car after the M1 supercar, the XM. The M2 Coupe will be the final full-fat M car before the subdivision embarks on the hybrid and full electrification journey. If that is true, the M3 EV will arrive sooner than we thought. But there is nothing to worry about because M boss, Frank Van Meel, has assured us that “it will always be an M3”, something ‘groundbreaking.’

The 991 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Is Gorgeous In Purple

The 991 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Is Gorgeous In Purple

There’s just something so mesmerizing about a 911 GT2 RS in a unique shade of Purple

Based on the Porsche 911 Turbo, the 911 GT2 RS doesn’t really need much of an introduction. The very first model was launched back in 1993 as the GT2, a name that carried on until 2009. For the 2010 model year, the GT2 became the GT2 RS, but that wasn’t the end of its story. Surviving across four generations (993,996,997, and the most recent 991 generation) the formula for the GT2 hasn’t changed – it’s a track-focus sports car that’s specifically designed to be the lightest and fastest in the 911 lineup. Often characterized by its extreme performance, extreme aerodynamics, and flamboyant price, the 911 GT2 isn’t for everyone, but it’s still one of those cars everyone can admire.
