There are few things as strong as Arabs and their love for the finest exotics. Traditionally an importer of the best the rest of world has to offer, the Middle East has finally produced its first supercar — the Lykan Hypersport! Developed by Beirut-based W Motors, the sharply-dressed performance car made its world debut at this year’s Qatar Motor Show and was shown once again at the Dubai Motor Show.
Built on a light-weight carbon fiber frame, the Hypersport is powered by a twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that produces 770 horsepower and 737 lb-ft (1000 Nm) of torque, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds — a very exclusive territory — on route to a top speed of 395 km/h (245 mph).
Signature design highlights include diamond-encrusted LED lights, a holographic display, a gold plated hood and platinum keys. Each customer will be able to choose a precious stone to have fitted in the interior of the car.
With production limited to just 7 units, the Lykan Hypersport will fetch an eye-watering $3.4 million US. To sweeten the deal just a bit, buyers will also get a Special Edition Cyrus Klepcys Watch worth more than $200,000 US.
New, 2019 BMW 1 Series Arrives With FWD Setup, More Of Everything
BMW’s small hatchback enters a new era with a front-wheel-drive platform.
The all-new, 2019 BMW 1 Series has been unveiled, bringing a number of firsts for the nameplate.
Developed from the ground up, the third-generation 1 Series represents a vast departure from predecessor. It is the first 1 Series to have a front-wheel drive layout instead of rear-wheel drive, which theoretically would make it less of an enthusiast car.
The old 1 Series looked a bit gawping with their large headlights and slightly-awkward styling proportions, something the new 1 Series remedies with a more chiseled design that neatly integrates BMW’s current styling language. Flanked by a sleek set of headlights, the twin-kidney grille is of a tasteful size, while wider and slimmer tail lamps give the rear end character.
The interior is roomier than before, and like the exterior, features a familiar design seen in BMW’s latest vehicles. A standard 8.8-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system comes standard and supports gesture controls, while high-spec models get a bigger 10.25 inches screen, complemented by a fully-digital instrument cluster of the same size.
In Europe, the new 1 Series will be offered with three diesel and two gasoline engines, with output ranging for 116-horsepower to 302 ponies. A six-speed manual transmission will be available, as well as a seven-speed dual clutch on higher trims.
The M135i (pictured) is powered by a 2.0-liter gas unit that produces 302 horsepower and 450 Newton-meters, making it BMW’s most powerful four-cylinder engine ever. The capable engine, combined with a eight-speed Steptronic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system, allows it to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than five seconds.
In keeping with the competition, the long list of driving aids include lane-keeping, city-braking functions, active cruise control, and an array of parking assistants.
The all-new, 2019 BMW 1 Series goes on sale in September 2019 shortly after making its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. How do you think it compares with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and Audi A3?
New Hyundai Venue Is Hyundai’s Smallest, Cheapest SUV
Hyundai’s SUV and crossover family welcomes their smallest and most affordable member.
The all-new, 2020 Hyundai Venue is a new entry-level SUV for the masses. Designed to appeal to millennials, it is the smallest and most affordable utility vehicle offered by Hyundai.
The Venue is actually five-inches shorter than the Kona, but a taller, more upright profile makes it appear bigger and even more substantial.
Exterior design is in line with Hyundai’s latest SUV design language, with highlights including the brand’s cascading grille and squarish headlights placed below razor-thin daytime running lights and turn signals.
Inside, the 2020 Venue gets an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and rearview monitor. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant connectivity are also available.
Power comes from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that can be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) automatic, delivering fuel economy of up to 33 mpg combined.
Despite its small size, the crossover can be had with many of Hyundai’s latest safety technologies including forward collision assist, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic warning, driver attention warning, and blind-spot detection.
The Hyundai Venue appears to have the substance to go with its spunk. Sales begin in the forth quarter of 2019.
New, 2020 Lincoln Corsair Luxury SUV Is A Baby Aviator
Lincoln has unveiled the all-new, 2020 Lincoln Corsair, the replacement for the MKC.
As the company’s contender in the crowded compact luxury crossover segment, the Corsair is a lot more stylish and sophisticated than the MKC, borrowing many styling cues from the new Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator. I fact, I would go as far as to call it a baby Aviator.
The Corsair has an attractive exterior, but it’s the interior that makes the biggest statement. It comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi across all trims and phone-as-key technology that allows owners to keep their key at home and use their smartphone instead, while an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and wireless charging adds more functionality. Exotic leather colors and shapely wooden inserts lend greatly to its classy atmosphere.
The options list also includes 24-way adjustable seats with massage and ambient lighting, a massive panoramic glass roof, and 14-speaker Revel audio system
At launch, the new Corsair will give buyers two engine options. There is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that produces 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque and an optional, slightly more powerful 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 280 hp and 310 lb-ft. A plug-in hybrid model will join the lineup later on.
All Corsair models get Lincoln’s basic suite of safety features, which includes automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, reverse brake assist, and automatic park assist are optional.
Sales of the new, 2020 Lincoln Corsair begin in fall 2019. Did Lincoln do a good job?
