Posted: February 12th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Grilled Auto News, Grilled Motoring News | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on Grilled! Lamborghini Urus Hybrid Production Confirmed for April ’17

Lamborghini Urus Concept

It’s been five years since Lamborghini first unveiled their Hybrid SUV concept – Urus – at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Since then it’s been waning between remaining a viable but ultimately unrealised vision – like the mythical Estoque super saloon – or a full-fledged addition to the Lambo stable.

In 2013 more hints that the Italian super-car maker was serious about the Urus came from then Chief Executive Stephan Winkelmann who said the company’s future plans were very much in-line with a high-performance SUV in its offer.

Via an interview with Digital Trends, Lamborghini’s current CEO Stefano Domenicali has confirmed that production of the überSUV will begin in April 2017, with prototype test vehicles rolling off the line first. Production of customer-bound examples be underway by July 2017 :: Read the full article »»»»

Now apparently the consumer behemoth aims to have us in it on the road. The company is set to release its first car in 2019, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal’s Daisuke Wakabayashi.

Apple is referring to the idea as a “committed project” internally, the WSJ report says. According to sources the company plans on tripling the number of folk working on the project.

The initiative, being called Project Titan, so far consists of 600 people.

Although many reports have suggested that Apple is working on a self-driving car, the company’s first vehicle is more likely to not be fully autonomous Wakabayashi wrote, citing sources familiar with the project.

Benz Lands SLS Gullwing Replacement in Australia, Meet the AMG GT S

Posted: August 26th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Grilled Auto News, Grilled Motoring News | Tags: , , | Comments Off on Benz Lands SLS Gullwing Replacement in Australia, Meet the AMG GT S

2016 AMG GT S OFFICIAL

First previewed last September, Mercedes-Benz Australia has finally unveiled the new GT S to local punters. The biturbo 4.0 litre V8, two seater coupé – subtly replacing the now legendary SLS – has styling and specs set to take on allcomers.

The goal? …to take on its Stuttgart rival, Porsche, specifically the iconic 911 GT3. This coupé is impressive, very impressive, and competitively priced to boot – the SLS was a smidge over $AU500,ooo, this incarnation lands in Oz for a smidge under $AU300,ooo.

For my liking, the only downside is that Australia will miss out on the base Model GT, Mercedes Benz Australia instead opting for the fully loaded version :: Read the full article »»»»

VW Tops China Car SalesVW are now the biggest automotive manufacturer in the world’s biggest automotive market, quite a contrast to their US operations where they skirt around the middle of the pack.

Volkswagen were once much-loved in the US for their quality, but have since seriously fallen out of favor.

Over in the Middle Kingdom VW’s pull on the Chinese public is immense, the German auto-makers offer stretches from the cheapest $US12,000 hatch to the $US175,000 Phaeton übersedan.

And it seems that anything with a VW badge riveted to the front and back panels seems to simply drive out the showroom doors.

Volkswagen sold 3.27 million vehicles in China last year, it’s closest rival, GM, sold 3.16 million cars, now the race is on for VW to become the world’s biggest automotive manufacturer, but for them to achieve that result they will need to improve the way the US market views them :: Read the full article »»»»
