The sharpened design coupled with established technologies and outstanding comfort in the back seats define Audi’s premium conception in this segment. The sedan thereby represents the symbiosis of masterful comfort and sporty handling and it therefore covers the full breadth of driving experience. With precision in all details and many intelligent functions, the new A8 is a high-value technology pioneer in user-centered and confident mobility.
The new McLaren Artura - The exterior design
The engineering artistry that lies beneath the Artura's surface is complemented by its exterior design. This drama is accentuated by the signature McLaren Dihedral doors, which open closer to the body and house mirrors that retract closer. The overall effect gives the Artura an almost "shrink-wrapped" look and takes a McLaren design approach seen in recent models to a new level. The sleek, engineered sculpture has minimal body lines and sheet metal joints, aided by features such as the entire rear fascia, which was designed and superformed as a single component. Designed to optimize performance and manage airflow for aerodynamic performance and cooling, the Artura's shape follows McLaren's "everything for a reason" design principle found throughout the car. The center of the front splitter is a case in point. It is the inlet for the eHVAC system and also houses the front radar, which is part of the optional ADAS package.

REE is revolutionizing the e-Mobility industry through its highly modular and disruptive REEcorner technology which integrates critical vehicle components (steering, braking, suspension, powertrain and control) into the arch of the wheel. REE’s proprietary x- by-wire technology challenges century-old automotive concepts by being agnostic to vehicle size and design, power-source and driving mode (human or autonomous). Platforms utilizing REEcorners can present significant functional and operational advantages over conventional EV “skateboards” currently available in the market.
