CHICAGO (January 30, 2019) – Lexus is bringing some heat to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show with the first public appearance of the 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Edition. The third vehicle in the Lexus Inspiration Series, this LC 500 is a limited-edition model that features a unique mix of colors and features that build on the coupe’s stunning design.

Volkswagen Dune Buggy Teaser

Wolfsburg (D) – Volkswagen is bringing a legend back to life! At the beginning of March, the Wolfsburg-based company will reveal the first fully electric version of a new dune buggy. Taking its cues from popular American dune buggies, the concept vehicle is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), demonstrating how multifaceted the new platform is.
“A buggy is more than a car. It is vibrancy and energy on four wheels. These attributes are embodied by the new e-buggy, which demonstrates how a modern, non-retro interpretation of a classic can look and, more than anything else, the emotional bond that electric mobility can create,” states Klaus Bischoff, Head Designer at Volkswagen.
The concept of the fully electric buggy is based on the vehicles that were created in the 1960s in California. Back then, the Beetle chassis served as the basis for these buggies; now, the MEB is proving to be just as flexible. True to the original vehicles, this reinterpretation of a dune buggy has …

Mercedes-Benz model cars: new Actros tractor with semitrailer

A giant in small form: the first ever car transporter in 1:18 scale
Stuttgart. This is a sight which will get all model car and truck fans' hearts beating a little bit faster: Mercedes-Benz presents the first ever car transporter in 1:18 scale. The transporter is a combination of the new model series of the legendary Actros GigaSpace tractor unit and a fitting semitrailer capable of transporting up to six model cars of 1:18 scale. A perfect composition right down to the finest details, the car transporter measures 113 cm in length and weighs 10 kg!
The predominant standard format with respect to commercial model vehicles was previously 1:50. Mercedes-Benz has collaborated with renowned model vehicle manufacturer NZG to create their first tractor unit and semitrailer combination in the 1:18 scale. This opens up entirely new horizons for commercial vehicle models. Even the tiniest of details inside and outside the Actros are clearly recognisable. And then there's the 96.5 cm lon…

2019 Skoda Kamiq Design Sketches

The ŠKODA KAMIQ SUV is another car speaking – and adding new accents to – the ŠKODA design language. The most striking new feature is the horizontally split headlights.
Oliver Stefani, ŠKODA Chief Designer said: “In our new KAMIQ city SUV we’ve implemented a completely new headlamp configuration. The two-part headlamps with daytime running lights above are a first for ŠKODA. They give the KAMIQ a unique appearance and represent another interpretation of our successful SUV design language.”
Another bold component on the fascia is the broad grille featuring the double ribbing common to all ŠKODA SUVs. The side profile will reveal the high bonnet and balanced proportions of the entire car, while highlighting the new model’s dynamic and sporty concept. 
The rear lights will retain the C-shape – the tell-tale sign of a ŠKODA, but this will be freshly interpreted. An eye-catching feature on the fifth door will be the ŠKODA name in letters in the centre. The new ŠKODA KAMIQ, an urban crossov…

ZL1 1LE | Something Old, Something New

DETROIT — The 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE — the fastest, most track-capable Camaro ever — will offer an available 10-speed automatic transmission beginning late February.
During development, Chevy engineers pushed the limits of the automatic transmission to be more than one half second faster than the standard manual on General Motors’ 2.9-mile Milford Road Course. In fact, on longer tracks like the Nürburgring where you can take advantage of the lightning-quick shifts and all 10 gears, drivers can expect to shave off several seconds from their previous lap times with the six-speed manual ZL1 1LE.
“This transmission is optimized for speed,” said Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens. “With unique Track Mode calibrations and 10 gears, you are always in the perfect gear when rolling on or off the throttle. You may not be a professional race car driver, but now you can shift like one.”
Not only does the 10-speed transmission save time at the track, it gives customers more performance options. The …
