The lights on an Audi have long provided more than just safety. They represent the interface between design and technology and they have an authoritative impact on every Audi model’s visual appearance. That is particularly distinct in the exterior design of the e-tron GT quattro and RS e-tron GT – headlights and taillights are defining elements of these models.
The Land Rover Defender - The interior design
Exclusivity also dominates the interior: The seat covers invite you to take a seat with Windsor leather in Ebony together with accents in Microvelours and Robustec fabric as well as distinctive brand markings in Ebony. The Defender's signature crossmember here has a Satin Black finish. This is complemented by a four-spoke steering wheel with Alcantara trim and matt chrome shift paddles, which are available exclusively on the Defender V8. The leather covers on the airbag and gearshift and the illuminated door sill trims with V8 lettering continue to be visually attractive. Further improving entertainment, information and communication in Defender is a new 11.4-inch touchscreen, which can be optionally coupled with the Pivi Pro infotainment system. The display's slightly curved glass is around 60 percent larger than the standard touchscreen. This means that route guidance information, for example, can be displayed more clearly. Furthermore, users benefit from the familiar advantages of the particularly fast and intuitive Pivi Pro system, which boots up in a flash and is immediately ready for use after starting the Defender.
In commemoration of the legendary Countach’s 50th anniversary and V12 heritage, Automobili Lamborghini today debuted globally the next generation Countach LPI 800-4, alongside the North American premieres of the Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae and Essenza SCV12 at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. The annual automotive event, held on the grounds of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club, returned for an 18th year and served as a prime location to commence the world-famous Monterey Car Week. The Countach LPI 800-4, an emblem of the brand’s past and future, was unveiled to a crowd of 5,000 guests by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. It harnesses a naturally-aspirated V12 engine and an electric motor delivering a maximum combined power of 814 cv and top speed of 221 miles per hour. A visionary masterpiece of the brand’s future, the Countach LPI-800-4 still brings forth the renowned design of the Countach from the 1970s. Only 112 units will be made, signifying the ‘LP 112’ nomenclature used during the original Lamborghini Countach’s development.
For Marc ter Stegen, starting a good day begins with a good cup of self-made coffee. “At least I try,” he says with a smile. The FC Barcelona goalkeeper does his best to stick to his daily routines when he doesn’t have to travel to play a match: breakfast, training, spending time with his family. But on this occasion, there’s something new in his daily routine, as for the first time he drives to training in his new car, the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID.
