Land Rover her brought us a lovely little gift on a Tuesday morning – the manufacturer has just unveiled their all new, superbly sexy and pretty powerful Discovery Sport SUV.
Designed to be an entry level Land Rover, the new Discovery Sport is the new, updated version of what used to be called the LR2 or Freelander. And believe you me, it’s not just the name that has changed. This new compact SUV – as the company describes it – is everything you would ever want, and the some.
First things first, let’s start at the power. The Discovery has a 2.o litre, turbo engine that powers out 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. It’s US version is a 9-speed automatic while Europeans can choose between the 9-speed automatic and a 2.2 litre SD4 turbo diesel six-speed manual (or 9-speed automatic) that clocks 190 horsepower.

If you are an Aston Martin fan at all, you will remember the limited production of the Aston Martin Lagonda sedan that was produced between 1974 and 1990. The car was so limited in fact, that in the 16 years it was produced, the company only manufactured 645 models.
But now the Aston Martin Lagonda is set to get a new lease on life with the unveiling of the 2015 Lagonda Sedan.
The 2015 Lagonda arrived in Oman this week to supposedly undergo some further testing. This was also the first time we got to see a glimpse of the Lagonda, and, by the looks of things, it is one classy car. (more…)
Chris Harris is a very lucky man, this we know. He gets to test drive all the latest and greatest the automobile industry has to offer and then tell us viewers whether it’s good or not.
This time around, however, the self-confessed car junkie took a bit of a different route.
This video features Chris Harris building his very own rally car. Or rather, taking an old E30 M3 rally car and turning it into a better one. It’s really very interesting and for anyone who ever wanted to build their very own rally car, it is a must see.
Check out the video below. Enjoy!
We already know that a Lamborghini Huracan is a really fast car - and one that not may of us would want to take on in a drag race, that’s for sure.
However, what happens if you pit an all new, super fast Lamborghini Huracana against something worthy of a drag race against it; an actual, military grade fighter jet.
Well, naturally, we all know who will win in the end as the laws of physics will explain, but still, there is something super exciting and really thrilling about watching a Lamborghini Huracan take on an actual fighter jet. And this video does not disappoint! (more…)
Concept cars are great. Mostly because it is, after all, only a concept and you can really let your imagination go. Not only are concept cars fun to design by designers themselves, but its also great for us car fanatics to see what people come up with and what we can possibly see in the near future.
This latest Aston Martin concept is like something out of a sci-fi film – and it’s awesome.
Called the DP-100, Aston Martin actually teamed up with video game development studio, Polyphony Digital, to come up weigh the idea. And why a video game developer? Well, because the car will actually make its debut in a video game.
Say hello to the latest addition to Gran Turismo 6′s line up! (more…)
Road accidents are no joke. Whether they involve a car or a motorcycle, anyone who has ever been in an accident know how lucky they are to be alive. One man in particular, who can really count himself lucky, is this Russian motorcyclist.
The accident was caught on video by a Russian driver’s dashboard camera.
It was published on YouTube on august 19th and appears to have a July 3oth timestamp. According to various sources, the accident seems to take place on a bridge close to the Russian city of Korolyov.
According to Mashable, they cannot confirm nor deny that the video is, in fact, authentic – but if it turns out to be true, this gentleman can thank his lucky stars and give his guardian angel a pat on the back, because what happens is nothing shy of unbelievable.
We won’t spoil it for you, so check out the video below:
We know that Mercedes-Benz has some big plans with the all new S-Class Maybach. And if this spy video turns out to be the first look at the supposed Maybach, then we are certainly in for a treat when the ultra luxe car finally makes its debut.
The S-Class is expanding in quite a big way. Up until now, there were only two different engine options when it came to the S-Class, but now, Mercedes is introducing an array of new model lines.
The German automaker is adding a new S-Class Coupe to it’s line up as well. This is in addition to the sedan, of course. And soon, the S-Class Coupe will be available in a convertible version too – and we’re sure that will be a big hit with Mercedes fans worldwide. (more…)
Tesla, watch out. There is a new electric kid on the block and it’s all sparkly and new and pretty impressive!
Meet the all new Renovo Coupe – an electric super car that looks to tackle Tesla and their Model S head on. The car was designed by Renovo, and don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them before.
Renovo is a startup based in the home of all fancy startups, Silicon Valley. Here, the company designed and developed the good-looking Renovo Coupe in secret for nearly 4 years. And finally, the Tesla rival has been unveiled to the public.
First off, the car really is beautiful. WHile it’s electric and certainly very modern, it has a classic, alluring vintage/retro look that definitely makes it stand out in the crowd. Not that said ‘crowd’ is very big – it’s pretty much only the Tesla Model S and the Renovo in it’s class. Although, things might start to look different once Tesla releases their planned electric coupe. (more…)
