The S-Class of luxury yachts
Mercedes has announced plans to introduce a luxury yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
Dubbed the “Silver Arrow of the Seas,” the 14 meter (46 feet) long Gran Turismo combines the “typical design features of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars with innovations that were previously unknown in the boatbuilding industry.”
The model was created with the assistance of Mercedes designers and promises to feature “innovative versatility and intelligent use of space.” Mercedes also revealed the yacht is suitable for day excursions but also has sleeping quarters for an undisclosed number of people.
The boat will be built by Silver Arrow Marine and promises to be a “new class of motor yacht” for a “new class of owner.”
A design study was recently presented at the Mercedes-Benz Style exhibition at the Porto Montenegro marina, so expect to learn more in the coming weeks.

Both will be built in South Korea
The Chevrolet Spark and Sonic (aka Aveo) are relatively new in the United States but the cars have been on sale in international markets for a few years. As a result, General Motor is gearing for the production of the next-generation of models.
According to South Korean labor union spokesman Choi Jong-hak, the next-generation Spark will go into production in early 2015. The Aveo, on the other hand, has been pushed back to 2016 from its original launch date of late 2015.
General Motors declined to comment on the report but Jong-hak said the information was given to union negotiators during wage talks last week. Unfortunately, there’s no word on what we can expect but we should learn more in the coming years.
French luxury marquee, Bugatti will be introducing the “Les L gendes de Bugatti”, an exclusive special edition of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse that pays homage to six heroes of their successful history at the Monterey Auto Week in California next month.
The first Legend is dedicated to Jean-Pierre Wimille, who garnered two victories for Bugatti at Le Mans. It honors the driver who triumphed at 24 Hours of Le Mans for Bugatti in 1937 co-driving a 57G Tank with Robert Benoist. He also won in 1939 while co-driving a 57C Tank with Pierre Veyron.
Taking inspiration from the 57G from 1937 Le Mans, this Grand Vitesse has a blue clear-coated carbon fibre and a light Wimille Bleu paintwork finish. The interior references the essential characteristics of the classic models driven by those figures and to whom the edition pays homage.

It is powered by an eight-litre W16 engine delivering 1,200 PS and a torque of 1,500 Nm (at 3,000 – 5,000 rpm), and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a lightening 2.6 seconds.
The production run for the Bugatti Legend “Jean-Pierre Wimille” will be limited to three vehicles. Pricing has not been disclosed yet.

Team tune: Inden Design and BINZsport customise Mercedes A-Class. Carbon fibre is the name of the game here and everything from the bottom front section of the A-Class which now has a custom-made flap to the original A-Class side skirts are now carbon-clad. More of the light stuff is used for the rear diffuser and the openings for the AMG tailpipes (inspired by the C 63 AMG Black Series). The exhaust system is also modified, coilovers used and you`ll also see the placement of 19″ rims with new rubber..
