Video inside 2018 Mercedes-Maybach G-Wagon: Will Birdman buy one?

3 people viewing this

| By ExNihilo - 3 days ago



Quote:

When you’re the first SUV to bear the Mercedes-Maybach badge, drivers can guess they’re not going to get the usual off-road experience, and the G 650 Landaulet doesn’t disappoint. Taking the now-iconic SUV and throwing in not only high-luxe features but a convertible roof and, unexpectedly, portal axels, the limited edition vehicle keeps its go-anywhere reputation. As you might expect from a Maybach, though, the most fun happens in the back.

It may not be the first Mercedes-Maybach convertible in recent memory – in fact, the sub-brand rolled out a drop-top last November – but the key is in the Landaulet name. The driver and front passenger get a regular metal roof over their head. Those in the back, though, get a power-folding soft hood.

The rear-seat focus doesn’t end there. Mercedes-Maybach has transplanted the seats from the S-Class over, which means heating, cooling, and massage functions. There are also matching heated and cooled cup holders (no, they won’t massage your cappuccino), twin 10-inch displays for entertainment, and an electrically-controlled glass partition to separate the driver.

Twin tables fold out of the rear center console – Mercedes-Maybach says they can be operated single-handedly – with leather inserts in case you want to practice your penmanship on a suitable surface. Maybe more importantly, the rear seats can recline fully and have a calf-rest that can be adjusted too. A 578 mm longer wheelbase boosts rear legroom.

They’re finished in Mercedes-Maybach’s “designo” leather, with diamond stitching and two-tone color schemes. Three different colors for the fabric top are on offer, and a variety of body colors including the G Wagon favorite, matte finish. Chrome-plating to the front grill and screen help single it out from “regular” SUVs.

The design team even includes “LANDAULET” lettering into the ceramic-polished 22-inch 5-twin-spoke alloy wheels, lest you needed an extra reason to avoid curbing them. Power-sills make climbing in easier, and there are unique underride guards, wheel-arch flares – finished, of course, in real carbon-fiber – and a full-sized spare wheel mounted on the back with the third brake light integrated.

Still, because it’s a G Wagon at heart, the G 650 Landaulet can’t skimp on the off-road abilities. The 325/55 R 22 tires help, certainly, with 100-percent differential locks that can be switched on while the SUV is moving, plus a low off-road ratio of the transfer case. However, like the AMG G 63 6×6 and G 500 4×42, there’s also something very interesting going on underneath.

There you’ll find portal axels. Thanks to some clever gear arrangements, they basically lower the wheels compared to the axel center, boosting ground clearance to 450 mm. Keeping things running is a Mercedes-AMG V12 biturbo good for 630 HP and 738 lb-ft. of torque.

Mercedes-Maybach will have the G 650 Landaulet specially made in Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, alongside the other G-Class SUVs. Sales will kick off – at an unspecified, but likely vast – price at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Act fast, though: only 99 will be made.

A true sea monster, the 468-foot sailing yacht A apparently made its first pelagic prowl with sea tests off the German coast of Kiel a few days ago. Designed by Philippe Starck and built by Nobiskrug, the three-mast monolith (with a beam greater than 81 feet) is the largest vessel in the world to be powered by sail and, according to boatinternational.com and superyachttimes.com, features the following:
A steel hull with a composite superstructure
Eight decks dressed in teak
Three carbon-fiber masts, each about 300 feet in height
More than 48,000 square feet of sail
A propulsion system comprising two MTU 3,600 kW diesel engines and two 4,300 kW electric motors
A cruising speed of 16 knots, top speed of 21 knots, and range of 5,320 nautical miles
Capacity for a crew of 54
Commissioned by Russian tycoon Andrey Melnichenko for a reported price of approximately $318 million, A is a follow-up to his 390-foot motor yacht of the same name. Melnichenko is expected to take delivery of his latest aquatic acquisition in the spring of 2017. (nobiskrug.com)






that hull is so smooth.

Article inside With a new Jaguar and the Shell app, your car can pay for its own gas

2 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 4 days ago



Contactless payments are making their way into the car. Jaguar and Shell have the first major rollout, allowing you to pay for fuel through the car's touchscreen. Of course you'll still have to get out of the car to actually pump the fuel into the car, but hey, progress, right? Apple Pay and PayPal will be available payment methods from the start, and Android Pay will be added later.

For this all to work, you'll need a new Jaguar (or Land Rover) with the InControl infotainment system, a connected phone with the InControl app and Shell app, some space in your tank, and some electronic money. When you pull up to a Shell station and launch the Shell app through the touchscreen, the car will use geolocation to figure out which station you're at and then prompt you to enter the pump number you're next to (don't want to pay for someone else's fuel now do you?). Once that's done, you tell the system how much fuel you want (it's not clear if you can just fill the tank like most normal people do) and then the screen in the car shows you a receipt; one is also sent to you via email.

While this might just seem like trading one screen for another and entering info through your car instead of at the pump, contactless payments also have an added level of security over pulling out a credit card. (Credit card skimmers, which steal card data when you go to swipe at a kiosk or ATM, have been popular at gas stations.) It will also be welcome in the winter months, when you can limit your exposure time. Plus you'll never again have to respond to this incomplete sentence, which greets us at Shell stations everywhere: "Is this debit card?"

InControl is available on every Jaguar and Land Rover model. And if you get this Shell app working on an F-Pace with the Jaguar Activity Key, you'll have the latest in minimal-touch technology. The system will roll out to people in the UK first and should arrive in the US later this year.

| By thekidd - 2 weeks ago



The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet is the fourth variant of the current S
Class U.S. market stable. It is the first four seat convertible flagship to appear since1971. It delivers an elegantly exclusive design that’s distinctive yet understated and it’s loaded with the latest state-of-the-art technology. The new Cabriolet provides the S-Class lineup with a return to the joys of open-air motoring, without any of the weather related discomfort normally associated with drop-top vehicles.
MBZ S550 Cab Top Op

The convertible top operates in just under 20 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph. A graphic of the top operation stage progress appears in the driver information center. The windows also lower with the top and there’s a switch to raise all of the windows after the top is back in place. Opening and closing the soft-top is possible from outside the vehicle by using the vehicle’s key. The soft top is available in black, dark blue, beige and dark red.
MBZ S550 Cab RSD TD

Despite it open car structure, the new S-Class Cabriolet is exceptionally rigid, thanks to Innovations such as the luggage compartment bulkhead’s aluminum and magnesium construction as well as the aluminum rear floor, which contributes to lowering the bodyshell weight to equal that of the S-Class Coupe. The standard roll-over protection system behind the rear head restraints features pyrotechnic initiation of actuators for the first time, in addition to the roll bars, which are moved into position by a gas generator.
MBZ-S550-RInt


The Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet may well be the world’s most comfortable convertible. Climate comfort is enhanced by MBZ’s automatic wind protection systems AIRCAP®, and AIRSCARF® neck-level heating, heated armrests, seat heating for both front and rear passengers along with intelligent climate control, which In contrast to conventional systems, the climate is controlled automatically.
MBZ-S550-Trnk


When the three-layer soft top is opened, it stows in the luggage compartment. It is separated from the remaining luggage compartment space by means of an electrically-operated retractable cover which encloses the soft top. This luggage compartment partition extends automatically during opening of the soft top. The partition will not activate if the luggage compartment is loaded with objects intruding into the partition’s area. When the soft top is closed, the luggage compartment partition may be retracted by pressing a button in the inner paneling of the trunk lid, allowing for more available luggage space.
MBZ-S550-Cab-Nose
In terms of its design and visual appeal, the S550 Cabriolet embodies luxuriousness in a special and sensual way. Up front, the car’s centerpiece is the black diamond radiator grille featuring the Mercedes star logo and a single louver in silver with chrome inserts. The hood appears with two powerful character lines and the front bumper incorporates large air intakes in the middle and at the sides. A sporty finishing touch is exemplified by chrome trim. An LED Intelligent Light System may be ordered with optional exquisite Swarovski® crystal turn signals and daytime running lamps further enhancing the car’s elegance.
MBZ-S550-LSD-TU

In profile, the side design displays a dynamic coupe-like persona when the soft top is closed. Side styling features include a sleek, low greenhouse, with the dropping line of the quarter panel descending towards the rear and fully retractable side windows.
Moving to the rear, the S-Class Cabriolet’s impression of width is underscored by flat LED tail lamps and muscular shoulders. The soft-top compartment lid is framed by a wide chrome trim element, while the rear bumper with diffuser-look lower section, two visible tailpipe trims and horizontal chrome trim element finish off in a sporty flair. The Mercedes star on the trunk-lid is hinged and performs several functions: it serves as a handle for manual opening of the trunk lid and is also the cover for the rearview camera and the optional Surround View System.
MBZ-S550-Tail-TD

The cabin interior showcases refined quality materials and decorative stitching. With the top open, the S550 Cabriolet creates the ambience of an open-air lounge. Colors and materials are thoughtfully and skillfully matched, and high-quality controls are executed in genuine metal or in a chrome look highlighting the highly and exclusively expressive character. Enabling individualization, a choice of nappa leather or designo® Exclusive Nappa leather plus six different interior color concepts is available, including a yachting-inspired blend of deep-sea blue and porcelain.
MBZ S550 Cab Int



The Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet is powered by a 4.7-liter, DOHC, 32-valve biturbo V8 with ECO Stop/Start. The longitudinally mounted front engine produces 449 horsepower in a range from 5,250-5,500 rpm, while developing 516 pound feet of torque from 1,800-3,500 rpm. Motive force reaches the rear wheels via a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The S-Class Cabriolet rides on standard AIRMATIC® semi-active air suspension that features infinitely variable damping control.
MBZ-S550-Eng

The new Cabriolet is available with a host of assistance features and Intelligent Drive systems such as: PRE-SAFE® Brake with pedestrian detection, DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist, BAS® PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist and Night View Assist® PLUS. In addition to a distance and collision warning function in conjunction with Adaptive Brake Assist, which offers collision protection from speeds as low as 5 mph, the standard COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS system also features the added function of autonomous braking at speeds of up to 65 mph. At speeds of up to 31 mph the system also brakes in response to stationary vehicles, and is able to prevent rear-end collisions at up to around 25 mph.
MBZ-S550-Dsh
The PRE-SAFE® preventive occupant protection system has been upgraded to PRE-SAFE® PLUS.

My test 2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet sported an Anthracite Blue metallic exterior finish, while the designo® interior was executed in Porcelain and Deep Sea Blue exclusive Nappa leather with polished Black Poplar wood trim accents. The base price of my test vehicle was set at $131,400., while options and value added packages elevated the final purchase price to $160,375.

SUMMARY: Piloting the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 is a delight. The biturbo V8 cranks out stunning acceleration, with braking prowess to match.
The ride quality is luxurious, which should not to be confused with overly soft. It is compliant, but solid with controlled and planted stability. Handling is highly responsive and sport-like and grip is provided by staggered size Pirelli P-Zero rubber mounted on 14-spoke cast alloy AMG wheels. Changing gears may be accomplished automatically, via the console lever or with the steering wheel paddle shifters. The 9-speed automatic transmission shifts with velvet preciseness in all selectable modes, Sport being the most responsive.
MBZ-S550-RSR-TD

With only a week for evaluation and assessment, it was not possible to become familiar and proficient with all of the S550 Cabriolet’s systems, features and controls. It has a lot to offer in every aspect of performance, luxuriousness and convenience. There are massing, heated and cooling seats with articulating supportive side bolsters and so much more. Essentially, if the S550 isn’t equipped with it, chances are that you really don’t need it or perhaps even want it.
MBZ-S550-Whl

Bottom line, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet represents a welcome addition to the flagship S-Class lineup. It is a gorgeous and luxurious automobile with the advantage of open-air motoring and the benefit of high performance attributes. It is a highly desirable vehicle.

Article inside How automakers are cashing in on the connected car craze

4 people viewing this

| By ReDvIaGrA - 3 weeks ago

Source: visit this link http://venturebeat.com/20 .. ted-car-craze/


The Internet of Things has created a new market in the automotive industry, which is showing no signs of slowing down. Connected cars and their associated services are expected to grow from $13.6 to over $42 billion by 2022.

A glimpse of our collective future can be seen in Cadillac’s Book by Cadillac entrance — an on-demand, luxury lifestyle-driven vehicles by subscription. The $1,500-a-month car subscription service allows members to swap out different models of high-end sedans and SUVs, beginning in New York in February. It’s the same business model as ClassPass or Netflix, but for the GM-owned Cadillac brand, competing with the likes of Audi’s luxury mobility offering, Audi on Demand.

Audi and Cadillac have taken the functionality of Zipcar and turned it into a “white glove” service that leverages pre-existing brand affinity that is typical of many luxury buyers. Ford is also on board with FordPass — the first automaker-produced app that can provide services to drivers who don’t own a vehicle from that brand. The app also helps find parking, lock and unlock the car — all great services — but the magic is that it helps build brand affinity even when the customer is away from their car.

Automakers and other industry players are also forming partnerships to offer innovative connected car services. Ford is testing out a peer-to-peer car sharing service named Smart Mobility that allows Ford Motor Credit customers to rent their cars to other drivers. Toyota has partnered with Uber for leasing to drivers, and GM has partnered with Lyft to offer its drivers short-term rentals. GM also acquired a car-sharing app in Europe to help people share their cars, even if it’s not a GM vehicle.
