The Modern & Stylish Volkswagen Beetle

The Beetle is one of the world’s best known, most loved and most individual cars. The stylish coupé Volkswagen car is now in its third generation and has been designed as a modern interpretation of the original Beetle that respects the past and looks forward to the future.

This amazing Volkswagen model unites classic styling and modern technologies.
You can choose among several colors and versions, and customize the equipment.

With regard to the performance, the 6-speed automatic transmission offers acceleration and smooth gear changes, and, if you’re looking for more control, you can shift manually in Tiptronic mode.

The Convertible model is available with a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine – 170 horsepower. The Convertible lineup is broken down into three trim levels, called S, SE, and SEL, respectively, and the rugged-looking Dune model. The Beetle hatchback lineup is broken down in the same way, but SEL cars benefit from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder tuned to provide 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque.

Aston Martin Vulcan

Born out of extensive motorsport experience – and using the brand’s acknowledged flair for design and engineering ingenuity – the 800-plus bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan promises truly extreme performance.

Uniquely for Aston Martin the new supercar – limited to just 24 examples worldwide – will allow owners the opportunity to precisely tailor their track day experience through a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments.

“Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling supercar,” Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said.

“Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track.”

According to some rumors, the price of the supercar is about $2.3 million.

 

Motorsport-inspired

Styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, and with a design language hinting at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars, this supercar is powered by the most potent iteration yet of the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine.

With its 800-plus bhp powerplant developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car draws extensively on the brand’s rich GT motorsport experience.

The Aston Martin Vulcan made its world debut at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show in March 2015.
