Mercedes-Benz Style is now designing VIP Aircraft Cabins too
Lufthansa Technik and Mercedes-Benz Style have announced a collaboration on the design and completion of VIP aircraft cabins. Their joint project will be showcased at the EBACE 2015 (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition), which takes place from May 19 to 21 in Geneva. The VIP cabin concept is described as “entirely innovative, luxurious and integrated” and is designed for short- and medium-haul aircraft.
The concept ditches traditional interior cabin design for dynamic architecture. This means the traditional separation of ceiling, wall and floor will be entirely replaced by a dynamic, spiral layout, giving rise to new, independent...
Interesting pictures illustrating some stylish prototypes/concept cars Audi brought out at motorshows in the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's and early 2000's.
Just over a quarter of a century, the Ingolstadt sent on to climb the firmament of the premium brands. Audis way to beaming brand is not without detours and dead ends. This is proved by many exceptional and special models with four rings on the grille, while demonstrating Vorsprung durch Technik decades ago, but never bring it to market. In book " Audi rarities "portrays Erik Eckermann Audi's history and tells of Audi car stories from the early 20th century.
Particularly interesting are the Audi-studies from the 1970s. Even with the Italo-study "Ace of Spades" reveal the Ingolstadt sporting ambitions. That the more honest Audi 80 forms the basis for the beautiful study, makes the sports car no less beautiful. After all, his line comes from the pen of designer Giorgio Giugiaro....
Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport concept debuts at Worthersee with carbon body and 400 PS hybrid setup
Features gullwing doors
Volkswagen has staged the world debut of the Golf GTE Sport concept in Austria today at Wörthersee.
Joining the Golf GTI Clubsport and Golf GTI Performance at the annual GTI meeting, Volkswagen's new Golf GTE Sport concept represents an interesting take on the popular hatchback. It has very little in common with the production series...
Audi has unveiled the future of performance TFSI engines today, with a concept coupe that's coming to the Worthersee GTI Treffen. It's called the TT Clubsport and under its hood is a 2.5 TFSI which uses an electric biturbo setup.
The advantages promised are just fantastic. After launch, the car sprints 16 meters (52.5 ft) in just 2.5 seconds, which is 6 meters (19.7 ft) further than a comparable car without this innovation. That is a difference of around one and one-half car lengths.
We haven't even gotten to the best part yet, as the output of this 2.5-liter inline-5 is rated at 600 hp of power and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque, the latter from 3,000 to 7,000 rpm. That translates to 240 hp and 260 Nm (191.8 lb-ft) per liter of displacement or about twice what you get with a regular TTS coupe.
Given these numbers, it's not surprising that the TT Clubsport, which is as light as a race car, needs only 3.6 seconds to reach 100 km/h and has a...
Munich / Milan. Today the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este ranks among the world’s most exclusive and tradition-rich events for historic cars and motorcycles. First staged in the north Italian town of Cernobbio in 1929, the Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este – as it was then known – was a showcase for new products from the automotive sector. Now, the upscale Classic Weekend looks back on a richly varied history spanning 86 years. In 1999 the BMW Group took over the patronage of the event, and since 2005 BMW Group Classic has hosted this high-calibre display of rarities jointly with the Villa d’Este luxury hotel.
The fascination of an exceptional decade.
The motto of the three-day event in northern Italy is “Seventies Style – The Jet Set is back” It runs like a thread through the entire weekend, with vehicle classes dedicated to the theme and an exhibition in the grounds of Villa Erba as well as the Saturday evening event in the pavilion at Villa Erba likewise staged under...
The winning entry of the multistage international competition FIZ Future looks at the design of the future master plan and extension of the BMW Research and Innovation Centre (FIZ). People working in a huge variety of specialist fields will need to meet and pool their thoughts to create the innovations of tomorrow.
A central axis accelerates movement and provides an enhanced spatial experience to encourage a greater number of such encounters. All cultures of expertise in automobile construction and mobility are always on view. Towards the edges of the campus, this perception reduces and becomes more focused to allow the various specialist fields and disciplines to further develop their ideas.
This effect also promotes integration with the surrounding urban quarters. Here, the design of the new BMW FIZ opens up to...
