The new X-Class series has a domineering 1920mm x 5340mm body using an all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The vehicle has four engine offerings: two four-cylinder diesels, a four-cylinder gas engine, and a V6 diesel.

It’ll also be offered in both rear and all-wheel drive with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic, respectively. The Mercedes-Benz X-Class will be available in three variants: The PURE basic variant for classic robust use, PROGRESSIVE for a higher quality feel and comfort, and POWER as the high-end variant for urban lifestyles. The vehicle is also capable of carrying cargo up to 1.1 tons with a drag force of 3.5 tons. The X-Class has a more luxurious interior compared to its G-Class wagon, flaunting a wide and open feel, including a freestanding central 8.4-inch display, in conjunction with the command online multimedia system.

Bentley Continental GT Galene Edition

I can already see Bentleys latest creation parked up at the docks of Monaco, Bentley‘s bespoke Mulliner division has teamed up with Britain-based Princess Yachts to create the Bentley Continental GT Galene Edition.

Inside the cabin, seating surfaces are covered in light-colored white and taupe, contrasted with caramel stitching and a bluish-gray dash. The steering wheel with paddle-shift gear selects invites an assured grip with increased storage

An eyeglasses case is embedded into the center tunnel that is lined with “Brunel”-colored ersatz-suede microfiber which matches the passenger-side dashboard. A hand-painted yacht illustration by Spanish artist Jaume Vilardell is placed on the fascia that reminds one of the nautical vibe.

To resemble the grandness of a yacht, Mulliner division has created a special open-pore wood for the Galene, a new pinstripe walnut trim that evokes a deck-design found on a yacht. The wood can also be seen lining the door sills and the entire floor of the trunk. On the glacier white exterior that is offset by a dash of blue trim and a dark blue convertible top, the model’s iconic grille has changed from gloss black to bright chrome. Instead of the massive 6.0-liter W-12 stablemates used in typical Continental GT Convertibles, the Galene is powered by the Audi-sourced 4.0 twin-turbo V-8.

Coming out this time with a double-header announcement, not only will the Vanquish Zagato Speedster officially make its way into production, but a new model — the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake — will join it. Embodying opposite ends of the spectrum while both staying true to the Zagato philosophy, the Speedster and Shooting Brake respectively representing the unique exhilaration of a high-performance open-top sports car and a showcase for exactly what can be achieved with a practical GT when it comes to design.

New 2018 BMW Z4

leaked images ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, we have our first look at the new BMW Z4 Concept.

Estimated to launch next year as a 2019 model, the two-seater roadster is an aggressive looking beast and we are excited to see its launch.  To give the Z4 its aggressive stance, 20-inch wheels are wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

As is the case with many luxury vehicles nowadays, carbon fiber highlights in the form of a front and rear diffuser and front spoiler with Z4 lettering grace the car. Contrasting all the carbon fiber goodies is an Energetic Orange paint job which is part of the BMW Frozen matte paint line. The interior is futuristic and modern, the driver’s side is swathed in black leather while orange suede covers the passenger side. A hidden set of headrests and a futuristic dash bring everything together.bmw-z4-concept3 bmw-z4-concept2 bmw-z4-concept1
