2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography by Kahn Automobiles

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography by Kahn Automobiles

The aftermarket company has infused more sportiness into this powerful SUV

English aftermarket company, Kahn Automobiles, is known to create ravishing examples of stock vehicles. The company has been doing it for years, and the latest model to roll out is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography. This black beauty receives a whole lot of new equipment on the outside to make it look sportier than it already is. The example here is a 2018 pre-worshipped model and has 9,000 miles on the odometer. The asking price breaches the six-digit mark when converted to USD. Worth it?

2020 Porsche Cayenne Nebulus by BLACK BOX-RICHTER

All hands on deck for this scintillating program for the German SUV

With the arrival of super SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo now faces stiff competition from all corners of the market. The high-powered German SUV still commands plenty of respect and attention, but in those moments when it meets any of these new upstarts, a little aftermarket help wouldn’t be so bad to have. This program, in particular, offers a glimpse of what a Porsche Cayenne Turbo could end up as if enough aftermarket support goes into it. Mind you, this isn’t a one-tuner job; this is the work of several outfits, all coming together to build what could very well be one of the most impressive Cayenne Turbos on the market. There’s a heavy price to pay for this kind of work, but rest assured, German tuner HGP Turbo, Austrian vinyl wrap maker Black Box-Richter, clothing brand Nebulus, and designer Hajo Lemke of EightElevan Design developed a monster program for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe - Driven

2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe - Driven

When it comes to buying a four-door BMW 2 Series, aka the 2 Series Gran Coupe, you don’t have a whole lot of options. You can either choose the base, 228i, or the current range-topper, the M235i. With a price difference of $7,800, it leaves one to wonder whether you might as well pony up a little extra to get something that looks, well, less bland, or if you should just get the base 2 Series GC and drive it for what it is. The extra $7,800 doe net you nearly 70 extra horsepower and a drastic improvement in acceleration, but is it enough? We just spent a week with the M235i, and our experience with it – and how it competes with the Audi S3 and Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 – will enlighten you.

2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner

2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner

The Bentley Continental GT goes further upscale with a new Mulliner package

The 2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner is a special-edition version of the Continental GT. As the name suggests, the coupe has been customized by Mulliner, the company’s bespoke division. Although it doesn’t look very different compared to the standard model, the Mulliner model stands out through numerous exclusive features inside and out. Designed for customers who want an even greater focus on customization, the 2021 Continental GT Mulliner is basically the range-topping version of the current luxury coupe. Engine choices are similar to the regular model, so you get to choose between the gasoline V-8 and W-12 mills. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2021 Jaguar F-Pace

2021 Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar has introduced the 2021 F-Pace with some external tweaks, revised interior, and new engines under the hood

Jaguar has refreshed the F-Pace for 2021 model year, and it comes with quite a few changes. While the changes are subtle on the outside - so subtle that a layman won’t even notice it – the automaker has rejigged the cabin. The old screen is swapped with a new, larger touchscreen infotainment system, and there are new engine options available under the hood, including a hybrid that offers up to 33 miles of electric range. Will this help elevate the Jaguar F-Pace in such a competitive segment?

2021 Porsche Panamera GTS

2021 Porsche Panamera GTS

Porsche’s Sexy Four-Door Sports Car Just Got An Update for 2021

2021 marks the introduction of a revamped version of the Porsche Panamera. The improvements span across the entirety of trim levels, from the base six-cylinder version, through the GTS, all the way to the Turbo and Hybrid versions of the sports saloon. The GTS package has always been the perfect balancing point between performance and comfort, for all Porsche models. This is especially true for the Panamera, as the main purpose of a sports saloon is to balance these two aspects, in particular. The 2021 Panamera GTS does this balancing act and more.

2020 Cadillac CT4 - Driven

2020 Cadillac CT4 - Driven

Where does the smallest Cadillac fit into the luxury market?

With so many Americans rushing from cars into crossover SUVs, only the strongest sedans are surviving. That’s not good news for Cadillac. Its huge, decadent luxury sedans were once desired all around the world. But while its Escalade SUV is still an international icon and its crossovers are fairly successful domestically, Cadillac failed to establish itself among the leading luxury-sedan brands today. The few remaining luxury sedan buyers more often turn to Audi, BMW, Lexus, or Mercedes-Benz. Some will try out critically acclaimed but unconventional options like Volvo and Genesis. And a growing number are choosing all-electric Teslas over any traditional luxury sedan.

It’s into this backdrop that Cadillac has overhauled its two luxury sports sedans: the midsize CTS and compact ATS. They wear new styling and new names: CT5 and CT4, respectively. This 2020 Cadillac CT4 delivers a sophisticated rear-wheel-drive sports sedan platform at the price of the Germans’ subcompact front-wheel-drive sedans. We recently spent a week in the new CT4 to see whether that’s enough to earn a second glance from the people who still want a luxury sports sedan. Prices start at $32,995.

2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S

Porsche’s uber-sedan gets a mid-career nip and tuck

It’s been a busy past month for the Porsche Panamera. Porsche’s sporty sedan lapped the Nürburgring in 7:29.81, claiming the executive class lap record, occasion that also marked the debut of the revised 2021 model.

New for 2021 in the Panamera stable is the 4S E-Hybrid cranking out 552 horsepower as well as the hotter, 620-horsepower Panamera Turbo S. It’s the latter we’ll be discussing today.

2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition

2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition

The Tribute Edition features only aesthetic changes and is limited to merely 25 examples

There’s no denying that the Audi RS6 Avant is one hell of a beast. With almost 600 horses under the hood, this wagon can hit the 60 mph mark in no time. Such is its popularity that it has even become a popular vehicle amongst tuners.

It didn’t have a presence in the U.S. until now, but the automaker decided to bring it to our shores as well. Earlier this year, the German automaker announced the six-digit pricing for the U.S.-spec RS6 Avant. To make RS6 Avant’s arrival here even special, Audi has announced a limited-edition RS6 Avant “Tribute Edition” that pays homage to the yesteryear RS2 Avant.

Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2020 Land Rover Defender Yachting Edition by Carlex Design

2020 Land Rover Defender Yachting Edition by Carlex Design

This nautical-themed off-roader by the Polish aftermarket company looks exquisite

Carlex is known for its out-of-the-box themes and designs. A couple of months back, the aftermarket company came up with a Yachting Edition of the Mercedes-AMG G63, which was designed for a customer in Dubai. It looks like the design pleased the enthusiasts as well as the folks at Carlex because it has now come up with another Yachting Edition, but this time it is based on the Land Rover Defender. In all honesty, it looks as sweet as the G 63 itself and comes with a lot of new stuff inside, on the outside, and none under the hood.

2021 Lister Stealth

2021 Lister Stealth

The Stealth is ’Britain’s Fastest SUV’

Jaguar F-Pace is a nice package overall and an all-rounded SUV. The most powerful trim in the lineup is the supercharged SVR which makes 550 horses and 502 pound-feet of torque. However, it is now trumped by an iteration made by another British company called Lister.

Lister has officially revealed the Stealth, an SUV based on the Jaguar F-Pace that makes 666 horses and 650 pound-feet of torque. The performance figures are also better than the F-Pace SVR’s, closely matching the newly-crowned world’s fastest SUV, the Dodge Durango Hellcat.

2021 Lexus LS

2021 Lexus LS

Minor nips and tucks for the LS flagship

The LS is Lexus. Or Lexus is LS. Whichever you want to put it. The luxury sedan debuted in 1989 and marked Lexus’ entrance on the U.S. market, but it also went on to become the company’s main pillar and foundation.

After more than 30 years, the Lexus LS is still doing battle against the German trifecta made of BMW’s 7 Series, Audi’s A8, and Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class. That’s why Lexus won’t compromise when it comes to its flagship sedan. Hence the updated 2021 LS we’re about to discuss.

2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe By AC Schnitzer

2020 BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe By AC Schnitzer

Famed Bimmer tuner takes its shot at Bavaria’s flagship M model

Like most cars, the M8 Competition Gran Coupe is far from perfect. It’s preposterously fast for a car that weighs in excess of two tons, and yet, the speed doesn’t really translate to the kind of enjoyable driving experience you’d expect from BMW’s range-topping model. Fortunately, AC Schnitzer is always there to answer the bell.

The German tuner known for developing programs for all sorts of Bimmers has come up with a program for the M8 Gran Coupe, one that addresses some of the perceived shortcomings of the M8 Competition Gran Coupe. The result is what you’d expect from AC Schnitzer.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition

Despite being priced at over $90,000, all 702 examples of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition sold out within three hours!

It’s been about a week since Ram revealed the 2021 1500 TRX. It came with a lot of exciting features in and out and hit the bulls eye in almost every department. The starting price of $69,995 (excluding destination charges), too, wasn’t bad for the stuff that’s on offer. But, as is the norm these days, the Ram 1500 TRX was also introduced with a special “Launch Edition”.

Priced at over $90,000, this edition was limited to just 702 examples – the same amount of horsepower that the truck offers. At the onset, it seemed a little too expensive, but all 702 examples of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition were officially sold out within three hours after the bookings opened. How about that!
