Budget Direct Renders Six Unique Manufacturer Collaborations

Budget Direct Renders Six Unique Manufacturer Collaborations

There are some great results, and some "close your eyes!" results

One of the great things about car renderings is the ability to let your imagination go crazy. You can use an existing car model and re-imagine it without a roof, or you can get really creative and redesign it in a different body type altogether. There’s something to be said, then, for renderings that take two models from two different automakers and combine them to create an entirely new model. It’s the kind of Transformers-like job that we should be seeing more often in the real world. Or should we? The truth is, BudgetsDirect undertook this very exercise, and the results are all “interesting,” to say the least. As an added bonus, we’re doing our own part and renaming these creations in the best way we can.

Land Rover Uses Wire Art to Tease the Next-Gen Range Rover Evoque

A small-scale wireframe Evoque would make for a cool gift!

The new Range Rover Evoque will be unveiled next week in London but, until then, here’s a tangible sneak peek to quench our thirst for more on Land Rover’s new compact luxury SUV: a number of wireframe models that showcase the model’s evocative lines.

The Range Rover Evoque was launched back in 2011 as a sleek and posh alternative to the bulky Range Rover that was meant for city usage first and foremost, not the off-road venue where the brand made a name for itself. The Gerry McGovern-designed SUV was previewed by the LRX concept unveiled in 2008. Now, a decade later, we’re nearing the release of the new Evoque that Land Rover has teased with the #HelloEvoque campaign that involved a few wireframe models photographed around London.

Jaguar Will Drop its V-8 Engines to Make Room for an Inline-Six with Electric Turbo

There’s also four new models on the way

Jaguar Land Rover is making sweeping changes to its engine lineup, and one of the casualties of these changes is the outdated and overused, 5.0-liter V-8 engine that both Jaguar and Land Rover have routinely used in a lot of its models. The V-8’s exit will eventually give way to high-performance versions of the upcoming Ingenium inline-six engine, including one version that will come with an electrically powered turbocharger.

Which is Better: The Audi Q8, The BMW X6, or The Range Rover Sport?

The coupe-style SUV market just got more interesting

Audi just extended its SUV lineup to include the Q8, essentially a sportier proposition to the utilitarian, wagon-like Q7. The new crossover marks Audi’s entry in the coupe-style market, a playground dominated by the BMW X6 since 2007. The segment also includes the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and the boxier Range Rover Sport.

With a new player on the market, it’s natural to ask yourselves which one is better. We’re here to answer this question by comparing the Audi Q8 against the BMW X6 and the Range Rover Sport. We left the GLE Coupe out of the game simply because it’s based on a model that was launched all the way back in 2011 and a new-generation model is just around the corner.

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition

Diesel power only

Introduced in 2014 as a replacement for the Freelander, the Land Rover Discovery Sport needs only a few years to become the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time. The crossover’s popularity prompted Land Rover to create a range of special-edition models, the latest of which is called the Landmark Edition and it’s available for the 2018 model year.

Another reason why Land Rover chose the Discovery Sport to be the designated nameplate for special-edition model is because it was also the first model to be built on the company’s 70th birthday on 30 April. The vehicle will thus be used to support a number of projects in 2018, starting with a community resilience project in Scotland. The Landmark Edition adds unique color and trim combinations to the popular crossover, pairing them with a powerful version of the 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine. Let’s find out more about it below.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Land Rover Range Rover

As Land Rover’s flagship SUV, the Range Rover has quite a billing to live up to. It should come as no surprise that as its flagship it can be had on a regular wheelbase or a longer wheelbase – the latter of which offers an astounding 7.3-inches of extra legroom in the rear. We’re still not sure why you would choose to ride instead of drive, but to each their own, we suppose. Either way, it’s offered with a number of drivetrains that include a supercharged V-8, a plug-in hybrid, and there’s even a diesel engine up for the taking if you prefer the oil burners. Power offerings range anywhere between 254 horsepower and 557 horsepower In the Range Rover Sport SVR. More important, though, is the fact that this baby is off-road capable as well. Even if you don’t have one in your driveway, you can have it on your desktop free of charge. We’ve hand-picked our favorite Range Rover wallpaper, but if it’s not good enough for you, we’ve included a nice little gallery for you to choose from as well.

We saw it when it launched the Range Rover Evoque earlier this decade. Now, we could be seeing it again in the form of a single-cab pickup that will be based on the upcoming Defender.
