In these unprecedented times, what’s a carmaker to do when auto shows are cancelled and public spectacles are banned? Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Hyundai decided to hold the global reveal of the 2021 Genesis G80 on the internet. The show must go on, after all.
If you’re one of those disappointed millionaires who are not fond of the Bentley Continental GT Convertible’s design, fret not, Bentley’s got your back. Mulliner, the oldest coachbuilder in the world, will produce the 2020 Bentley Bacalar, a limited open-top Grand Tourer with 650 hp.
Local media has announced that a mobile COVID-19 test centre was opened in Abu Dhabi yesterday, in the UAE’s latest effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The mobile test facility is solely dedicated to testing individuals for the illness that’s caused 30,000 deaths around the world, mostly among the elderly and younger people with pre-existing conditions.
GTA (Grand Turismo Alleggerita) is an iconic nameplate for Alfa Romeo. This name adorned the legendary Giulia GTA from 1965, a car that has won hundreds of victories for Alfa back in its glory days. And now when Alfa Romeo recognised the interest in something crazier than the current Giulia Quadrifoglio, if only to lift sales of the slow-selling sedan, Alfa turned its history pages to resurrect the GTA once again. Hence the new Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm debuted earlier this month, just before the COVID-19 crisis turned into a pandemic and forced Alfa Romeo and several other carmakers to start shutting down production in Italy as well as in many other countries in Europe over the past week.
The Honda S2000 is in a good place when it comes to collectible classics. Aside from the car’s obvious allure, it’s old enough to be rare and interesting, yet new enough to not have to panic when spare parts are needed. The local dealer still offers every conceivable part for the car, which is great for a bespoke roadster that’s been out of production since 2009. And Honda has just announced that they will continue making parts for the car as a heritage model (probably since they literally have nothing heritage-worthy in their current line-up to be proud of). So far in our experience,
Genesis is always classic. The very beginning of a revolution is never forgotten. Following the same lines, every new Golf GTI revealed is celebrated as the evolution of hot hatches, a formula that was made popular by the very first Mark I Golf GTI back in 1975. Since then, the GTI has grown in all ways and a few days ago, came a new one. This time, for the eighth generation of the GTI, the launch went as planned with no surprises except for an easter egg.
The 2020 Geneva Motor Show was the stage chosen by many brands to unveil their prestigious new offerings. But with the show now cancelled amidst the coronavirus epidemic, most manufacturers are launching their products online. Genesis has chosen to unveil their new sedan, the Genesis G80, through their Instagram handle. At least they didn’t use “influencers.”
A solid 600 hp from a 3-cylinder 2.0-litre engine, a combined hybrid output of 1700 hp, 0 to 100 kph in less than 2 seconds. These are mind-numbing numbers from Koenigsegg Gemera, the Swedish manufacturer’s newest offering. And you can take your family around for the ride too.
The luxury car market is an ever-growing space and mainstream brands from around the world have been trying to grab their piece which is otherwise dominated by the German brands. PSA Group, which owns Citroen and Peugeot, had recently jumped into the ring with DS, their semi-luxury spin-off of Citroen. They have entered the luxury sedan segment with a new model, christened 2021 DS 9. The plug-in-hybrid sedan comes with a handsome design and a lot of tech to lock horns with the established rivals.
The Mercedes Benz E-Class has always been the handsome middle-child of the German premium carmaker. The sedan has racked up a considerable amount of volume and became a forerunner for the success of the brand. For 2021, the Mercedes Benz E-Class has been lightly revamped, and with this update, the sedan and wagon versions get a frumpy new look, new tech, and a plug-in hybrid version.
