This Is the Range Rover-Based Bentley SUV That You Didn’t Know About
The SUV craze led to many manufacturers turning away from tradition in order to capitalize on the demand for luxury and performance SUVs. As a result, vehicles like the Bentley Bentayga spawned. The model is largely believed to be the brand’s first SUV. What most people don’t know, however, is that there was another SUV wearing the Bentley badge back as early as 1996. That said, because the model was specially commissioned and wasn’t part of the brand’s official lineup, very few people actually know about its existence. Luckily for you, we are here to tell you all about it.
10 Things the Ferrari Purosangue Needs to Take on the Competition
Ferrari will build an SUV. I am not joking, the company made an announcement. It will be called the Ferrari Purosangue. That’s the official name of the Ferrari SUV. Ok, Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri implicitly said that he does not want to hear “that word” in the same sentence with the word Ferrari. “That word” being SUV. Ok, Camilleri, I will not do it. Ever. The new Ferrari... truck… will be the most amazing piece of technology ever attempted with the “that word” layout. Luckily, we do know a thing or two about the new Purosangue.
Digression: Is the word crossover any better? Maybe, but I feel it sounds too soft for the status of a Ferrari. The Honda CR-V is a crossover for crying out loud.
The new Purosangue may take a layout similar to what we have been accustomed to with the onslaught of performance SUVs, yet the Italians promised to make it a proper thoroughbred. Incidentally (not really), Purosangue translated from Italian actually means thoroughbred. Is it just me, or the name Ferrari Thoroughbred (in English) wouldn’t sound bad at all? We have a Superfast and we like it, don’t we? Enough with the strange ideas. Purosangue it is.
Christopher Smith of Motor1 explained how to pronounce it:
“PUR-o-SAN-gue. There are four syllables, with emphasis on PUR and SAN. Phonetically speaking, start with PUR, as in a cat purring. From there just say a soft O as in oh, then SAN with a long A sound like saahn, and finish with GUE, which sounds like way but starting with a g – gway. PURR - oh - SAAHN - gway. See? It’s totally easy.”
Everything You Need to Know About the Porsche 989
Porsche have been romancing the idea of a four-door performance sedan long before the Panamera came to be. The original idea actually came around 1982. At that point, Porsche had already started moving towards more luxurious models. The 928, for example, was much more of a gran-tourer than a proper sports car – that was the 911’s occupation. Although the 989 never made it to production, its development involved some interesting ideas, as well as thinking “outside the box”, which we are now sharing.
With less than impressive sales in one of the most profitable segments of the American vehicle market, and an ageing, 14-year old generation still on dealer lots, the Toyota Tundra is arguably due for a complete overhaul. And I’m here to tell you that the all-new and improved 2022 Tundra is closer than ever, with an estimated launch date sometime towards the end of 2021 as a 2022 model year.
Keep reading to find out all the latest information regarding the third generation Toyota Tundra, a truck that will be „dominating” soon.
Will Electric Trucks Be As Effective As Internal Combustion-Engined Trucks In The Foreseeable Future?
Electric pickup trucks are all the rage right now. They are heavy on tech features, look futuristic, are quick enough to put supercars to shame, and come with power figures that will leave your jaws dropped. But in the midst of all this, we’ve lost sight of what matters the most – can it be used as a capable work truck? Yes, automakers have announced impressive towing capacities and whatnot, but are they worthy enough to replace your fuel-powered ‘work’ truck today?
The Kia EV6 Is A Formidable Rival To The Porsche Taycan, Too!
Electrification is the way to go whether you like it or not. Enough and more has been said about the advent of EVs, so we won’t get into that. Every automaker is coming up with their own new offerings, but there are some that stand out. The Kia EV6 is that stand-out model. Built from the ground up, the EV6 doesn’t seem like a half-hearted attempt from the automaker just because it needs to have a presence in the EV market. It is based on a new platform, a new design philosophy, and excels in most of the departments. It isn’t a perfect product, obviously, but it has a lot going in its favor and that’s precisely why it should be the talk of the town and why Porsche should be a little worried.
GMC Hummer EV: What Should You Be Getting - The SUV or Pickup Truck?
GMC introduced the Hummer EV supertruck last year and has now followed it up with the Hummer EV SUV. At the onset, it seems like a pickup truck that comes with a roof welded on the bed to make it an SUV. However, there is a lot more than meets the eye. Unlike the Rivian truck and SUV twins, the Hummer EV SUV has been placed as an inferior offering. There is a difference in specs, power outputs, and other things that makes it look like the second fiddle to the EV truck. The pricing, however, is on par for the standard models and there is a difference only in the Launch Edition model.
Tesla’s Sales Could Sky Rocket If This New GREEN Act Is Passed By The Biden Administration
Electrification is happening whether you like it or not, but the government is trying to make the deal sweeter for you. In the States, there is a federal tax credit of $7,500 capped for 200,000 EVs for every automaker. Until now, Tesla and GM have surpassed that cap and you can’t get the credit if you purchase EVs from this brand. However, a new Bill from the Biden Administration could change that.
Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo - What You Need to Know
The Rarest Porsches Ever Made
Porsche is one of the most renowned sports car manufacturers ever to exist. Over the span of more than half a century, the brand’s performance cars had established themselves as the ultimate sports car that you can use daily. Although Porsche has had its ups and downs over the years, it has had numerous highlights throughout its existence. Among their successful models, they’ve created numerous special editions.

The 10 Best Ferraris Of All Time
Picking the ten best Ferraris of all time is not an easy exercise, but somebody had to do it. Sports cars don’t come finer than those with a Prancing Horse badge, and in the 70 years that it has been around, Ferrari has built some of the finest and most desirable performance cars in the history of the industry. A lot of Ferrari models have climbed the ladder to iconic status, and even some of today’s models are on their way there, too. It took a lot of work — and arguments — but we managed to narrow down our choices for the ten best Ferraris of all time.
We recently talked about the upcoming Zagato IsoRivolta GTZ, and how it is one of the latest testimonies to the revival of what was thought to be a lost art – coach-building. It seems, now more than ever, small manufacturers and design studios are utilizing this art to create some jaw-dropping automotive art. Moreover, just like the GTZ we mentioned before, we see modern interpretations of legendary machines of times old. Without further ado, here are some of the greatest coach-built vehicles so far.
The Best Entry-Level Luxury Cars
Luxury cars give us more comfort, more technology, and better craftsmanship than normal run of the mill transportation. However, because it costs more to make even an entry-level luxury car, the price tag is often higher than that of a normal car. That said, the main reason we don’t see cheap luxury cars is the added value of the badge. More specifically, the associations of quality and prestige that come with it. Still, there is a chance for you to own a luxury car without breaking the bank. Here are some of the most affordable luxury cars that are currently on the market.
How Much Does a Tesla Cost?
Tesla is, without question, one of the most popular automakers today. The California-based electric car company boasts a sexy — no pun intended — lineup of EVs, ranging from the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y. It also has several models in the pipeline, including the Cybertruck, Semi, and the new Roadster. Tesla’s appeal as a car brand is palpable in the streets. You see one, and your eyes immediately gravitate towards the vehicle, as if it’s asking why you haven’t bought a Tesla yet. There, though, lies the rub. See Tesla’s are expensive. The entry-level Model 3 starts at $37,990, but that’s without the myriad of options, accessories, and add-ons that you’re going to be compelled to buy to make the ownership experience worth it. Ultimately, you’re going to have to spend at least $50,000 to get a loaded Tesla Model 3, and that price hits six figures when you opt for the Model S and Model X. So, how much does a Tesla cost when you factor in all the options that are available to a specific model? We took a look at each model that’s out on the market and those that have yet to arrive to give you a clearer picture of how you have to spend.
The 10 Most Expensive Cars In The World
Cars have been divided into affordable and expensive ever since the early days of the automobile. As Ford began to streamline production for the Model T, which made it affordable to the average Joe, automakers like Rolls-Royce were producing luxurious and expensive cars.
Companies like Bugatti, Duesenberg, and Cadillac soon joined this endeavor to produce the best car in the world, which would also be the most expensive car in the world. As years went by, many of them also became very valuable. Rare cars become collectibles, and collectible status comes with a high price tag. Which are the rarest and most expensive cars on the market right now? Find out in the article below.
The V-12 Cars That Paved the Way For Cars We Love Today
Initially developed for use in racing boats in the early 1900s, the V-12 engine became a popular choice for luxury carmakers in the late 1910s and 1920s, especially in the United States. Following World War II, when it was used to power aircraft and tanks, the V-12 made a comeback in European sports cars during the 1960s. Although V-8 engines are capable of similar output in a smaller package, the V-12 remained somewhat popular in exotic cars from Ferrari and Lamborghini, as well as full-size luxury sedans and coupe starting with the late 1980s. Today, you can buy several cars with large V-12 engines, but let’s have a look at some of the vehicles that actually made them popular.

Best BMW Cars Ranked
BMW, the maker with one of the most famous grille designs in the business, has been around for over a century and, in that time, has made some of the world’s finest luxury cars although it’s fast sedans and coupes that really put BMW’s name on the map. Here you’ll find our ranking of the 10 best Bimmers as well as some very honorable mentions.
While the genesis story of Bavaria’s leading automaker is still being misrepresented to this day, nobody’s confused when it comes to naming BMW’s strengths among Germany’s leading brands with its transcendental focus on driving pleasure that’s been paramount to building a brand image that identifies with some seemingly age-old catchphrases: ’Freude am Fahren’ (which loosely translates to ’the joy of driving’) and ’the ultimate driving machine’.

2021 Audi e-tron GT: Everything We Know So Far
Audi showed the e-tron GT conceptback in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The road-going version of this prototype is expected to debut this year in LA, but until that happens, the world needs to figure out the coronavirus outbreak and Audi has to apply the finishing touches on its new performance EV.
2021 BMW i4 vs 2020 Tesla Model S
BMW finally revealed the BMW i4, digitally, at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show. Although it was a concept, it previewed what we can expect from the production version that slated to launch in 2021. To put it simply, the i4 will essentially be a 4 Series GT with an electric powertrain. From what we know so far, the i4 seems to be a strong competitor, but does it have enough to go up against the Tesla Model S? Let’s compare them both and see what the differences between the Tesla Model S and BMW i4 are, and why those differences matter.
2020 BMW M8 vs 2019 Mercedes-AMG S63
Until recently, BMW didn’t offer a righteous rival for the S-Class Coupe. Subsequently, the Mercedes-AMG S63 was ruling the realm without a competitor in sight, but that changed when the M8 was born.
Although the S-Class Coupe/AMG S63 is a shorter, two-door version of the larger S-Class sedan and the M8 was designed as fully-blown coupe right off the bat, it fits nicely into the same ballpark as the juiced-up Mercedes-AMG S63. So in our quest to see which is better, we’re taking a good close look at what they have to offer on paper.
2021 Mercedes GLA Teaser and What We Know
Mercedes is preparing to debut the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class on December 11th, but before the second-generation crossover arrives, the German automaker dropped a new teaser showing the new GLA-Class’ side profile and parts of the rear section.
The familiar design echoes the looks that we’re now familiar with from Mercedes’ new batch of compact cars. The carmaker took a few design liberties in rendering of the GLA-Class — the wheels and tires are abnormally large — but for the most part, the second-generation crossover carries a host of new design features that should make the GLA Class look sportier than in previous forms.
