The Dark Sky Alqueva reserve in Portugal is a unique place in Europe to observe nebulae and constellations, such as Orion. It is a realm of darkness where the engineers of the SEAT Lighting team feel right at home. In the darkest areas of the planet they monitor the behaviour of other types of constellations, those that make up the headlamps and rear lights that they develop for models such as the SEAT Leon. “Here we have once again verified that the lighting we have designed for the fourth generation adapts perfectly to the road thanks to the range and width of the headlight beams and the contrast and definition of the rear lights” explains Carlos Elvira, head of Lighting and Signalling Development at SEAT.
The new Fiat Tipo Life Design Preview
The design of the Fiat Tipo has been completely refreshed in the new model year. It now looks even more modern, dynamic and elegant. The visual identification mark on the front of the vehicle is the newly designed radiator grille with the new FIAT logo and lettering. After the new Fiat 500, the Fiat Tipo is the brand's second model to adopt these new design elements. The headlights and taillights of the Fiat Tipo have also been redesigned. With full LED lights, they not only enhance the overall look, but also ensure a more modern look and increase active and passive safety thanks to improved visibility. In line with the pursuit of greater sustainability, the new headlights and taillights also consume less electricity. This relieves the load on the alternator and reduces consumption and CO2 emissions. The lower part of the bumper has been upgraded with elements in the look of brushed chrome. New designs, including a diamond finish, are available for the 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Hispano Suiza has fulfilled the main purpose with which it returned to the automotive world in 2019: to produce vehicles for car enthusiasts that, to date, were only possible in their imagination. After a few months of hard work and dedication at the Barcelona headquarters, the company turned Michael Fux´s dream into reality, as he became the first owner in the US of a Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne. Mr Fux took delivery of his Carmen Boulogne hypercar during the 27th edition of the Amelia Island Concours d 'Elegance.
