BMW’s Future Designs Need to be Bold and Meaningful
As BMW navigates the inevitable course to the future that doesn’t only include electrification of its lineup, but digitalization and sustainability, the company has been forced to rethink everything it stands for, all the way down to a design standpoint. This was never more evident than when BMW released the controversially grilled BMW M3 and the even bolder M4. And, while nobody can argue that the design of the M3 and M4 were definitely bold, that’s actually just the start of things.
2022 2022 Genesis G90
Genesis may have only been around for only five years, but it has already proved it can give “the old dogs” a run for their money. Not only are they not stopping but they are, once again, taunting the German trio in a very bold move. The Korean luxury brand was caught doing cold-weather testing in Sweden with a new Genesis G90 executive sedan. Mercedes recently brought out the new S-Class, while Audi is preparing an updated A8. We also know that BMW is about to give us a new 7-Series very soon, so it will be interesting to see how the all-new Genesis G90 will fare.

BMW’s New Electric Architecture Comes With a Lot of Surprises, the First Being An Electric 3 Series
We now know that BMW is working on a new compact EV Saloon. Internally known today as the NK1, the rest of the world will know it as the 3 Series EV when it launches in 2025. It will serve as an alternative to the next-gen, fuel-powered 3 Series. Sitting atop a new electric architecture known as Neue Klasse, this electric 3 Series will be the first big step forward in BMW’s massive shift to electrification and will pave the way for a whole-new generation of BMW EVs – including an extended lineup of SUVs. This news, however, is about a lot more than a new electric 3 Series, and more about BMW’s path to the future.

In this latest ¼ mile drag race showdown, Daniel Abt pits two vehicles that cater to two different ends of the SUV spectrum. They include the Rolls Royce Cullinan, which has to be the most luxurious SUVs that money can buy today, and the Lamborghini Urus, one of the sportiest ones out there.
2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Giulia, is a well-known sports sedan from the house of Alfa Romeo that does not fit in a category the Germans ace in. It is a lot different with its sexy Italian looks, performance, and handling capabilities that can take the enthusiast inside of you to another zone. With the 2022 model year, Alfa Romeo did a few tweaks in the exterior with the new Veloce trim, and other than that, there are a few feature updates as well. Speaking of the competition, we cannot think of others apart from the Audi A5 Sportback, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, and the BMW 3 Series. Let’s find out about the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia more in this detailed review below.
2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan By Klassen
On the U.S. market, a base Rolls Royce Cullinan is priced at $330,000. Not the cheapest SUV out there, but not very bad considering we are looking at a super-luxurious SUV. Then again, if you think that the prices for the Aston Martin DBX start from $180k and the ones for the Lamborghini Urus from a little over $210k, maybe the Cullinan is a bit expensive!
But, how would you feel about a $1 million Cullinan? Or, to be more precise €833,000 - or about $965,000 at the current exchange rate. A model like this actually does exist and it comes from the German tuner Klasses. Why is it so expensive? Lets find out!
Finally an Aston Martin DB5 You Can Afford!
Back in 2019 a fully restored Aston Martin DB5 that stared in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" was auctioned for the impressive amount of $6.4 million. With a price like this, no matter how much we like the DB5, you can imagine that not many people out there will get the chance to actually own one.
Now though, you can own a very cool looking DB5. But there is a catch: you can’t drive it! And that’s because it comes from Playmobil! Yeah, we know, now the DB5 you were dreaming about, but it is better than nothing, right?
2022 Chevrolet Tahoe
With the 2021 model year, the Tahoe received a generational upgrade that included the addition of a few more trims and various improvements inside and out. For the upcoming 2022 model year, Chevrolet has updated the already well-equipped Tahoe with newer colors, advanced features, and some other goodies. The 2022 Tahoe competes with the likes of the 2022 Ford Expedition (starting MSRP: $53,000 est.) and the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer (starting MSRP: $59,995). With an expected starting price of around $52,000, is this the full-size SUV the one you should consider? Let’s dig deeper.
2021 Manhart GLR 700 Limited 01/10
Everyone knows that AMG stands for performance. If you hear that someone drives an AMG model you automatically think about power and speed. But more power is both possible and more than welcome, so this is where the tuners came in. Manhart for example is offering a new tuning kit for the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe. It will be called GLR 700 and will be limited to only ten units, but there’s something very special about those 10 units.
The 2021 Hongqi E-HS9 Looks Like The Rolls Royce Cullinan’s Chinese Cousin
It’s clear, by now, that the Chinese automotive industry has developed significantly since the early 2000s. Fast-forward to nowadays and they are challenging the latest and greatest from established car manufacturers. A perfect example is the recently-unveiled Hongqi E-HS9 – a fully electric luxury SUV from one of China’s top premium brands.
2023 Land Rover Discovery Metropolitan Edition
Land Rover is updating the Discovery family for the 2023 model year by adding a new trim version to the lineup. Called Metropolitan Edition, the new model will be built on the R-Dynamic HSE specification and will now sit on the top of the Discovery family. In the States, the model will be priced from $75,300 - quite an increase over the Discovery’s base price of $56,600, but is it worth it?
Alfa Romeo Puts the Giulia to the Front of the Pack With Big Updates for 2022
Alfa Romeo may be in a tough position, but there’s no denying the company gave us some pretty good models in recent times.

Meanwhile, one of their most important models – the Giulia – is getting refreshed for the 2022 model year.

Here’s What To Expect From Alfa Romeo’s 5-Year Onslaught of New Cars
It seems Alfa Romeo is one of those brands that refuse to step away from traditions and move on with the times. Over the last decade or so, the Italian company has come up with some great models, but their business strategy hasn’t been what you would call sustainable. However, this may be about to change, as the Italian car company recently stated that we will be getting a new model every year until 2026, and from 2027 onwards, all models of the brand will be electrified.
2022 Infiniti Q60
If you are planning to buy a two-door coupe with a powerful engine, it doesn’t have to be the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, the BMW 4 Series, or the Audi A5 with all the handling finesse. What if you want to cover long distances in comfort? There you go, Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti has the Q60, a luxury two-door coupe that has almost all the required specs and features including a good ride quality reminding you of a Gran Turismo. However, of all the good sides, there are a few caveats which we will talk about in this detailed review of the 2022 Infiniti Q60.

Now, a month later, the Italian company announced the Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior - two special edition models that pay tribute to the GT 1300 Junior - a very successful Alfa Romeo model built between 1966 and 1976.
2023 BMW M3 Touring Spied Testing At The Nürburgring!
Spotting the BMW M3 Touring is like spotting a Mewtwo. It’s a beautiful Pokémon, but it’s rare. The last time we spotted the M3 Touring was back in 2020. Now, almost a year later, it has been spied again testing at the Nürburgring. However, there isn’t anything different this time around, and our spy photographers informed us that it even had the same registration number as the prototype from last year.
The 2022 Lexus LX 600 Breaks Cover As A Luxurious Land Cruiser 300
Toyota decided to pull the plug on the Land Cruiser in the U.S. to the dismay of a lot of people. However, it looks like the auto group had bigger plans for the SUV. The SUV has a loyal fan following, but it was a little rough for the asking price. So, while the Land Cruiser has retired, it will be sold Stateside in the form of the Lexus LX 600 – an SUV with better creature comforts, but with the DNA of the rugged Land Cruiser. The LX 600 is, in its essence, a suited-up Land Cruiser 300 It comes with a whole lot of tech features on the inside, and even sporty and luxurious trims to cater to all types of customers in the segment.
