The Land Yacht is a new concept by Airstream, the renowned American builder of streamlined, lightweight and fuel efficient trailers for travel enthusiasts. It is a unique vehicle that combines the best features of every Airstream trailer with the luxury amenities of fine ocean crafts.

The smart use of space allows for enough sleeping facilities for up to 5 people. Amenities include a large bedroom in the front, a social space with galley in the rear, and a bathroom. The powered bed lift controls access to a hidden storage space, while the wardrobe provides plenty of space for travel clothing.

Air conditioning, flat screen TVs, teak flooring, power awnings, LED lighting features, and Corian counter surfaces are all part of the deal. Apparently the project has already got a lot of fans worldwide, and even though production will only start in July, orders have been coming in from as far as China. The luxurious Land Yacht will set you back $140,000, but the price can get higher if you opt for various extras as well.

New and Lightweight Audi TT Ultra Quattro Concept

In celebration of the 2013 Wörthersee Tour, Audi has released an enhanced concept version of its TT model. The newAudi TT Ultra Quattro concept is much lighter than the stock car, thanks to an extensive use of carbon fiber and other weight-saving tricks.

By swapping some old detachable body components with new carbon reinforced plastic ones, Audi managed to shed off 95 lbs. Carbon fiber was also used for many of the interior trims, while the original seats were changed with R8 GT borrowed ones, with CFRP frames.

The result is a concept with 220 less pounds than the production version. This combined with 310 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque results in excellent performance figures: a top speed of 173 mph and a 0-60 mph time of only 4.2 seconds.

Hublot Unveils the Stunning MP-05 LaFerrari Watch

Created as a tribute to the new and amazing LaFerrari supercar, this amazing looking watch from Hublot is a true stunner in all respects. Aside from its awesome design, the new MP-05 LaFerrari watch boasts a series of technical features that will impress all connoisseurs.

This here is the world’s first hand-wound tourbillon wristwatch to boast a power reserve of 50 days! It was designed, developed and manufactured entirely by Hublot’s watchmakers and engineers, and it flaunts the highest number of watchmaking components ever used by the fabled Swiss enterprise for one movement – 637, of which 108 are jewels.

A total of eleven series-coupled barrels make up what seems to be the timepiece’s spinal column, and they work together to ensure its the record power reserve. They can be admired thorough a uniquely shaped sapphire crystal which was obviously inspired by the dynamic design of the LaFerrari. The crown is integrated into the design of the case so that it doesn’t stand out.

On the right side of the barrels the time is displayed on anodized black aluminum cylinders (one for the hours, one for the minutes). The left side was kept for the power reserve cylinder. The case is made of black PVD titanium, just like the folding buckle, while the strap is black rubber. Only 50 numbered units will ever be produced, at a price of $300,000 each.

2013 Porsche Boxster S RED 7 Exclusively for the Netherlands

Specially created for the Netherlands, the 2013 Porsche Boxster S RED 7 is a very limited edition version of the new generation Boxster. Its name is pretty clear on its most important features: the fact that it boasts an intense red color which gives it a powerful visual appeal, and the fact that it will only be produced in 7 examples.

The Indian Red exterior goes excellently with the contrasting Platinum trunk lid and front hood, both with a matte finish. The lower stance of the car is ensured by a new sports suspension. A sports exhaust system is also part of the deal. Finally, the interior of the ride is black leather with Guard Red trims to keep with the theme. The door sill plates are illuminated, and the audio system is singed by Bose. The Sport Chrono package and the Porsche Communication Management system are also part of the deal.

With a price that starts at €119,935, the car is fitted with 3.4-liter flat-six engine with 315 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque.

The All-New 2013 Softail Breakout from Harley-Davidson

Harley-Davidson has recently introduced a new stunner for their fans. It is called the 2013 Softail Breakout, and it merges all the best qualities of power, comfort, technology and design. It was developed to enchant freedom seekers, flaunting big wheels, a proud stance, and smashing looks. The chromed elements are meant to turn heads with their sleek shine, while the painted parts give extra personality to the bike.

Boasting the same level of detail that Harley-Davidson has accustomed us with, the new motorcycle features aTwin Cam 103engine that is more than technologically impressive: it is also a true pleasure to look at. Shiny chrome surfaces contrast beautifully with glossy black trims in a beautiful interplay of light and shadow. Everything from the covers and cases to the classic cooling fins has been carefully designed to work excellently and look great as well.

In terms of advanced technologies, the motorcycle manufacturer has some more nice things to show. Take for instance the 3-in-1 minimalist bullet lights at the rear. They work as taillights, turn and stop lights as well. Then there is the anti-lock braking system, which gives the rider a feeling of extra safety each time he or she starts the engine. Furthermore, the ABS is tastefully hidden in the wheel hub, thus not disrupting the looks of the bike.

And finally, the new Softail Breakout comes with a new security system that includes a hands-free fob, which works by automatically locking and unlocking the bike as the owner leaves or approaches it. All they have to do is put it on the ignition key ring and then enjoy the freedom. Prices start at $17,899.

Chevrolet Announces MSRP for New Stingray Coupe & Convertible

Liking what you see but curious how much it costs? Well, Chevrolet is finally here with some price announcements regarding the new Corvette Stingray and its Convertible sibling. Before giving you the exact numbers (enjoying the suspense?) we should tell you that even though specifications have been significantly improved, the prices haven’t soared in a spectacular manner. More specifically, the new coupe is just $1,400 pricier, while the convertible version is $2,395 more expensive than the previous generation.

And now for the actual prices: the Stingray Convertible has a base price of $56,995, and the Stingray Coupe has a MSRP of $51,995. These are, however, only the starting points, as more options will mean more money, and they could up the cost to as much as $20,000. A lot, we know, but even so, the Stingray is reportedly more affordable than rival luxury sports coupes (such as the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911).

So what will the base version bring to the table? Apparently plenty of cool stuff. The convertible will get a removable roof panel made of carbon fiber, and a smart key fob that enables the driver to lower the roof from a distance.The coupe will flaunt HID headlight with LED running lights, a seven-speed manual transmission, and a cool Bose audio system. While the standard version is not at all a bad choice, we believe many of the available options will prove too tempting for most buyersto resist.

DC Design Announces New Manufacturing Facility for the Avanti

DC Design plans on opening its fourth manufacturing facility in India, with a capacity of 3,500 cars. Dilip Chhabria, the founder of the company, told the Economic Times of India that the new plant will be erected in Sanand, Gujarat, India, with production is expected to start in 2014. It will reportedly roll out 2,500Avantis, and maybe a new SUV that the manufacturer intends to launch next year. Also scheduled for production are 1,000 units of the already existing DC models.

About the Avanti sports car, even though some have been referring to it as a supercar, its specifications don’t really make it fully worthy of that designation. However, DC has a very special way of making the car extra appealing: the company will only create 4,000 examples of its every model, and then move on to a new one. Powered by a265 horsepower2.0-liter FordEcoBoost engine, we believe that the Avanti is worthy of a special place in a diehard car collector’s garage.

New Subaru WRX Concept Suggests Excellent Power and Speed

Subaru has unveiled its new WRX concept in New York and even though official information is scarce, the design features of the ride are suggestive of pretty cool performance and power figures as well. Low, wide and menacing looking, this sedan says a lot only by its looks.

First of all, you can’t overlook the hood scoop and the power bulge that pushes outwards and makes room for the new engine with turbocharger and intercooler. Then your eyes will definitely linger on the carbon fiber-only roof, a detail which reduces weight and also helps lower the car’s center of gravity – an essential thing at high speeds.

The sculpted air intakes in the new front fascia suggest a powerful engine that needs a lot of ventilation. They also play an important role in generating downforce.  Clear indicators of muscle and speed can be seen at the rear as well: quad tailpipes and a new curved trunk lid spoiler.

The four blistered wheel arches indicate that an all-wheel-drive configuration will ensure excellent traction, and we like that detail too. Another feature that you might like is the new set of 245-section Dunlop tires wrapped around 20-inch BBS wheels. For more visual enjoyment check out the gallery below.

Hennessey Venom GT Outruns Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The new proud owner of the Fastest Production Car title is the superb Hennessey Venom GT. On February 9, 2013, the car underwent a series of tests in California, on the airport runway of a U.S. military base. The most important achievement on that runway was the record speed of 265.7 mph. We know, Bugatti fans will immediately protest, reminding us that the Veyron Super Sport boasts an official max speed of 267.8 mph.

Yes, that’s true, but keep in mind that the vehicle that secured this record was not the final production version supercar, which means that its speed was not electronically limited. The rides that made it into the buyers’ garages could only reach 257.87mph, which leaves enough room for the new Venom GT to become the new record holder. And the Guinness Book of World Records confirms this.

Based on the Lotus Elise/Exige model, the record breaker is powered by a 7.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine capable of a whopping 1,262 HP. Its makers even believe that a longer track could actually prove that the Venom GT is even faster than 267.8 mph. Only 29 units will enter production, each bearing a heavy price tag of $1.2 million.

Second Generation BMW X6 to Debut in Moscow Next Year

It’s a successor’s job to be better and more impressive than the previous generations. Consequently, the new BMW X6 is going to show some pretty nice features when it makes its debut at the 2014 Moscow Motor Show. Expect to see a more aggressive vehicle with a more imposing stance, higher quality interior materials, top-notch technologies, and better fuel efficiency.

The automaker’s aim is to accentuate the distinction between the more practical models in the X line (like the X3 and the X5) and the X6, which has a sportier character. The massive car will be built on the X5 platform, but a few modifications will be made to it to ensure extra legroom for the rear passengers.

Official information on the second generation X6 is scarce, but it is very likely for it to feature V6 diesel and petrol units, V8 petrol units, and even a plug-in hybrid engine that combines petrol with electric energy, and which is scheduled for launch in 2015. The new generation X6 will be available for purchase sometime in Q3, 2014.

Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept at Shanghai Motor Show

The new Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept crossover will make its debut tomorrow at the Shanghai Motor Show in China. Today, however, we have a few high-quality photos to share with you, showing bits of the classy car’s exterior and interior. For a better and more detailed look you will have to wait until tomorrow, when it will officially make its first appearance on stage.

Even though it is based on the A-class wheelbase, the premium crossover is longer, wider and taller than the hatch. Its overall look is more rugged as well with 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 255/45 R20 tires, protection plates under bumpers, wheel arch moldings, roof rails and other styling elements that are typical for crossovers.

Powering the concept is the A250 engine, which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four petrol one capable of 208 HP. The gearbox is a 7-speed dual-clutch 7G-DCT that sends power to the car’s all four wheels. This, of course, is only what the concept features, but the production version will most certainly come with extra motorization options.

With a toned down design, the production GLA will appear on the market in the first half of 2014, after having made its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

2014 Porsche Panamera plug-in hybrid can go 20 miles on electric power alone

Porsche has been making news in the recent past for the Panamera Turbo tourer model, including the Panamera Platinum edition which is stated to be launched later this year. To keep the enthusiasm going strong among the eco-conscious buyers, they have bought in their first plug-in hybrid edition of the supercar, the 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid. The special ‘electric and fuel’ drivetrain based on the 2014 Porsche series, there have been some significant technology changes, with the greater engine power output, and the ability to carry on for more than 20 miles in case, the fuel gauge is empty. With a charging port for just 2.5 hours, one can get the additional eco-friendly advantage added along with the luxuries that the Panamera will otherwise be sporting.

The S-Hybrid edition of the Porsche Panamera, has been fitted with 95HP motor, which is the double of the last hybrid creation from Porsche. The Lithium-ion battery which runs the engine, increases its storage capacity by a significant margin from 1.7 KWH to 9.4 KWH. It can charge real quick within 2 and 1/2 hours from a 240-Volt charger. Experiments have revealed that one could go on for over 20 miles on an all-electric drive, but then the add-ons features like the air-conditioning and heating would have to be turned down.

With the hybrid engine never the less, the capabilities still pack in a significant punch in terms of the speed capabilities. If one is using the all-electric drive, top speed is around 84mph, where as the fuel powered mode will take the car upto 167mph that too within 5.2 seconds.

The pricing figures released so far peg the value of the SE Hybrid Panamera to be $99,975. However since there have been other editions of the Panamera 4 released in the market, there are other models to choose from a varied price range. The Panamera 4S begins from $99,275+ charges, to the $162,075 for the new model of the Panamera Turbo Executive, which sports the extra long wheelbase apart from the added interior features.

Detroit Electric SP:01 is the world’s fastest electric car all set to rival Tesla

The competition seems to be raging wild in the electric car segment. To set the bar of capabilities for the category of electric cars even higher, the Detroit electric SP:01 is set to compete with Tesla Roadster, to become the fastest production electric vehicle currently available. The emission-free car has been fitted with a 150 Kw engine, which can take the traveling speed from 0 to 100 kmph within just 3.7 seconds, and the top speed pegged at 249 kmph. Also, with a single charge, one can cover a distance of 290 kms at a stretch. The SP:01 also carries a limited edition production run of 999 units, with a price tag of $135,000 for each unit.

To speed up a 4-wheeler to such speeds with an electrical engine, isn’t short of anything of a total genius. To ensure that the numbers match up, the body of the SP:01 has been crafted out of the same carbon fiber grade seen in F1 racing cars. The major benefit has been the 2,354-lb body weight, making the car agile for its dimensions. However, the framework on which the body chassis has been set, has been crafted with high grade aluminum which gives the necessary stability to the chassis. Also, there has been plenty of work on the new performance tuned suspension, steering, and braking systems, which aide proper handling of the SP:01.

The electric motor fitted in engine of the race car, is come fitted with batteries which take 4.3 hours for a single full recharge. It has a capacity of 37 Kwh, and generates an output power of 201 BHP, enabling to build up a top speed of 249 kmph, and take just 3.7 seconds to travel from 0 to 100 kmph. The innovation which takes the SP:01 to the levels of any racing super car, is the electromagnetic field which builds around the rotor-shaft thus pushing the wheel to travel at various levels of speed. There is the option for drivers to try the varied selection of gearing ratios, which will help them drive optimally under different surfaces and conditions, without having to change gears very frequently.

SRT Creates the New Viper TA and Motor Trend Tests It

Ambition can generate great things. The guys behind the all new SRT Viper TA (Time Attack) can tell you exactly how much of a difference a hurt pride can make. After the SRT Viper GTS lost to the Corvette ZR1 on the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca tack, the specialists at SRT started to work harder on a brand new Viper that would compensate for the previous loss of over 2 seconds.

So here is what the new TA boasts as improvements. First of all, a lot of carbon fiber and other weight reducing improvements made their way onto the new car. Even the iconic badges were swapped with virtually weightless stickers. Also part of the package were the new larger Brembo brakes, better wheels, and a two-mode suspension system with not Street setting! The driver can only choose between the Rough and Smooth modes.

Motor Trend, the same car guru that had organized the race between the GTS and the ZR1, was beyond impressed with the new TA. Apparently they have never driven a faster Viper than this one, and they were happy to say that the level of improvement it boasted was remarkable. We can’t wait to see what Chevrolet will have to say about all this.

Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon Watch Celebrates a Decade of Alliance with Breitling

One is a master at making heirloom timepieces, and the other symbolizes the best of British automotive luxury brands. Now these iconic brands will be celebrating 10 years for partnership with the launch of Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon Watch that impressively embodies the perfect combination of technique and aesthetics, and has been especially designed to appeal to connoisseurs with a love of exceptional horological creations. The joining of hands happened over the Bentley’s rise to the zenith on the Le Mans races, with first 2 positions going to the drivers of the British brand, and now the Swiss master watchmaker has created something equally unique to celebrate the best of the both worlds.

And 10 years later, in September 2012, the first carbon prepreg pieces were cut on the routing machine for Koenigsegg’s 100th production car, which has been duly named ‘Hundra’ (Swedish for 100). In short, a unique one-off Agera S was being built for a high-heeled and excited car collector.

Chrome Pink Range Rover Mystère by Hamann debuts at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show

The obsession for exclusivity via various personal renderings even with high end vehicles, seem to be a continuing trend worldwide, which is showing no signs of slowing down anytime. After buying a high end brand, the richer car geeks customize their vehicle as per their whims and fancies. Now Hamann is the next label which has put up its Chrome Pink edition of the luxury SUV at 2013 Geneva Auto Show.

For those who have a fetish for the color pink, and that too with a mirror finish to bring in a glitzy appearance, the ‘Mystere’ edition seems like a must have. The body kit is a carbon composite 4-part set, which has managed to add around 80mm to the overall width of the luxury SUV. The paintjob has indeed been a premier highlight of the Mystere, which adds lots of bling with the pink shade, thus adding a mirror effect and a very ‘barbie doll’ like feel to the overall aesthetics.

Hamann has managed to load a decent bit of machinery under the hood as well. Mystere Range Rover will be sporting a 5.0-litre V8 engine. To ensure that the vehicle runs just as smooth, while also serving the purpose of an overbearing presence, there are 23-inch Continental modified wheels. However, the additions have also ensured that the chassis has lowered a bit closer to the ground by 40mm, thus compromising on ground clearance.

2013 Ferrari FF with Siri, iPad integration for a better speed and tech filled ride

The 2013 Geneva Auto Show is proving to be another hotbed for technology and automobile geeks, where the bigger guys are putting up quite a show to outdo each other. If owning a Ferrari wasn’t just good enough; now the Ferrari FF will sport iPad integration feature in its setup. The 2013 edition of the supercar will also feature the additional benefit of having Siri eyes free integration while taking a ride in the backseat of the vehicle. The iPads will be fixed into the front seat headrests, where users can surf and control all their multimedia content via Apple’s ‘Siri’ programme, thus making the already thrilling ride in a Ferrari a step more tech friendly.

This setup wasn’t completed in a day. The chief of Apple’s software and services group Eddie Cue led a crucial role in ensuring that the new Ferrari FF sports this additional feature. Last year when Luca di Mentezemolo and Tim Cook sat down for doing something together, their mission was clear and something of this sort was always on the cards, which finally has manifested itself in the form of this upgrade in the Ferrari FF. And if the word is to be believed, this isn’t the end of it. We are still in the earlier half of 2013, and official statements say that Apple and Ferrari will be working on a large number of products together.
