To celebrate the arrival of the new Bentayga EWB, an exclusive First Edition is now available. Subject to a limited production run for the first twelve months of orders, it combines many of the most desirable options available for the car with a package of eye-catching details found only on Bentley First Editions. First Edition badging can be seen to the exterior of the car – a theme that extends inside, with badging on the veneered fascia, as well as embroidery on the seats. Unique First Edition contrast stitching and embroidery adorns the seats and, depending on the choice of veneers, handcrafted metal overlays just 0.075 mm thick can be applied to the fascia and waistrails in the front and the rear door veneer. The First Edition offers elegant and timeless design, focusing on maximum comfort and well-being. This specifically tailored specification includes a unique 22” ten-spoke directional wheel and bright lower bumper grilles. Other additional features as standard include unique quilted seats, mood lighting, a heated steering wheel, and increased driver’s assistance aids. Attention to detail is clear, from the badging that identifies the car to the jewelled caps on the fuel and oil fillers.
The Unimog in winter - fighting snow
When the snowstorm is so bad that you don't want to put your nose outside - then it's Unimog weather. Equipped with a snowplough and a gritter, it's in its element and it clears snow from roads and access routes – just like here in Rottach-Egern on the Tegernsee. That is where Tobias Maurer is deputy manager of the works depot, and he swears by his U 427 – even in difficult conditions: "The roadways here have gradients of up to 85 percent. But those are the conditions where the Unimog really feels at home." The municipal works depot of Rottach-Egern operates not only on flat roads and paths around the lake, but also on the access routes to the ski lifts of the nearby Wallberg mountain. Equipped with snow chains, nothing can stop the forward thrust of the Unimog and it clears snow at a height of 1000 metres. And when the winter is over, the work for the Unimog carries on. It transports gravel to forest tracks, tows a trailer with a building machine to a construction site, or it helps with road construction – just as a true "universal motor machine" should.
It is an Audi such as the world has never seen before: With the e-tron GT, the brand is demonstrating its plans for shaping an emotive and fascinating future of mobility. Presales of two models of the gran turismo with fully electric drive will start simultaneously in February 2021: the e-tron GT quattro and the RS e-tron GT. Both models are powerful, fast, and dynamic, and both have zero local emissions. The sum of these qualities adds up to a strong character that reinterprets the idea of the gran turismo. The exterior of the Audi e-tron GT is a dynamic work of art. Each surface and each line is harmonious, from the headlights, which are available with Audi laser light upon request, to the large diffuser at the rear. In combination, the details create a sculpture that looks like it was shaped by the wind. The body line is extremely aerodynamic, and the drag coefficient is just 0.24. The interior also corresponds to that of a classic gran turismo: The driver and front passenger seats are installed in a sporty low position and separated by a wide center console, and the rear seats provide sufficient space even for adults. The progressive elegance of the interior design emphasizes the car’s character.
The new Continental GT Speed is the most dynamic road car in Bentley’s 101 year history and the ultimate performance-focused interpretation of the world’s benchmark luxury Grand Tourer. Designed, engineered, developed and handcrafted in Bentley’s carbon neutral luxury automotive factory, this new third-generation model builds on a long tradition of Speed variants. Originally introduced with the highly-acclaimed, first generation Continental GT Speed in 2007 – itself inspired by the 3-Litre Speed models of the 1920s. The latest GT Speed continues the bloodline by representing the ultimate combination of luxury and performance in a Grand Touring package. New Electronic All-Wheel Steering enhances the dynamic nature of the Speed in BENTLEY and COMFORT driving modes. However, this is even more apparent in SPORT mode, as the steering combines with Bentley Dynamic Ride and an electronic limited slip differential for a level of agility unlike any other Bentley road car. Specifically tuned hand-in-hand with the traction control and active chassis systems, the eLSD provides increased lateral capacity, improved longitudinal stability, enhanced on-throttle adjustability and delivers better traction in adverse road conditions.
