Firm founded and run by Bashar Ajlani, which, as it turned out, is an automobile (and not only) designer that are marked by different awards in the UAE. But it seems that outside the country few have heard of. Bashar calls his idol Horatio Pagani.

A young company Ajlani Motors from Dubai has introduced on the home showroom promised hypercar. However, initially it was assumed that his name shall be called Dragon. The dragon is even depicted on branding. And the motto on the website of the manufacturer selected the appropriate: “the design in our DNA and performance in our hearts born of dragons”. But in the end, the coupe received a synthetic name Drakuma, combining dragons and demons.

The website of the company offers only computer renderings hypercar, however, outsiders pictures from the car show in Dubai prove that Drakuma really built in PCM were analyzed.

To all the”exorcists” is there to apply early coupe Fenyr (its name is derived from the Fenrir/Fenrir is a giant wolf from Norse mythology) can sleep peacefully, and “the devil” is also to worry about a competitor early, for Dubai shows a design prototype, the project is not yet completed. However, on the show surfaced some new details. So, behind the cockpit in Drakuma will run a V8 engine with two turbochargers, developing more than 1,200 forces.

Neither the full characteristics of the engine, nor its origin, alas, is not disclosed.

Contrary to popular race for “horses” and seconds, the head of Bashar Ajlani says that do not aim to build a hypercar with the most impressive specifications. The corner-allegedly delivered the design and the overall impression of the car.

Although the name of the coupe and Drakuma, yet the theme of the dragon in it in the first place (maybe then the name of the Dragon return?). Door coupe “should open like the wings of a dragon”, the front “jaws” placed a number of designer “canines”, completes the exterior of the elongated pointed tail. At least that is how it sees Ajlani. What symbolizes the red polygonal hole in the center of the stern (above the Central exhaust) is not specified. And although many design details Takumi will still be brought to mind, the company has already identified the circulation of the future wonder — 99 copies.

“The four-door Gran Coupe” will be the first purely electric model of the BMW Group in this segment, but instead of new pictures from the tests, the company slipped in March pictures of the prototype.

The Bavarians have shared the official information about the electric sedan BMW i4, which in 2021 will be produced at the main plant in Munich, side-by-side with the compartment of the fourth series, the dvuhdverok M4 and “treshka”. It turned out that the motor develops 390 kW (530 HP), that is, the recoil is on par with a V8 engine of 4.4. Disperse hundreds takes four seconds and a maximum speed exceeds 200 km/h. Thanks for that should say the BMW eDrive technology of the fifth generation allows you to put the main components of the actuator in one case EDU.

If from the concept BMW Vision Dynamics i anything left, it hides the disguise. By the way, the author of the show-Kara Domagoj Dukes from the APR appointed chief designer of BMW.

“Extremely flat” battery in the bottom weighs about 550 kg and has the capacity of 80 kWh, making the reserve up to 600 km in the cycle WLTP. The battery provides charging power to 150 kW. The six-minute “filling” enough to increase the mileage of 100 km To recharge up to 80% should be 35 minutes. Waiting for “ay-four” (at the same time it will be released iNext) define the SUV iX3, which in 2020, as a pioneer, you will fill out the most painful bumps. By 2023, BMW promises to build a 25-electric models.

Chevrolet corvette. Уже известно, что базовый Corvette Stingray в США будет стоить от $58 900, а доставка поднимет цену до $59 995 (3,83 млн рублей). Предшественник Corvette С7 просил $55 900 (3,57 млн).

We already know that the base Corvette Stingray in the U.S. will cost from $58 900, but shipping will raise the price to $59 995 (3,83 million). The predecessor of the Corvette C7 has requested $55 900 (3,57 million).

Buyers targhee Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, hoping to obtain their machines by the end of this year, will have to wait until February 2020. This was officially announced by the press Secretary Chevy Chris Bonelli at the conference in Detroit. According to him, the delay has led a 40-day workers ‘ strike, which began on 16 September on the American GM sites, including collecting the Corvette plant in Bowling Green. The protest action ended with the victory of the United trade Union of workers of automotive industry (UAW), who sought the higher wages and benefits. However, the effects of downtime will be felt for some time.

It is not clear how the strike will affect the launch of the Roadster C8 Corvette Convertible. Since “went” the whole production schedule, by the first quarter of 2020 version with folding roof may not make it.

According to estimates by consulting firm LMC Automotive, because of the strike, GM has nemovitosti 300 000 cars, and only a quarter of this amount can be compensated. Now to speed up production and catch up there is no way, because the factories work around the clock. But to worry about new Chevrolet protests do not: the UAW and GM entered into an agreement for four years. The Union will now proceed to deal with Ford using the GM contract as a template.

This new European update, however, the model Honda Civic for the North American market updated at the end of summer 2019. Then it also affected the appearance and interior, but not the technical stuffing.

To the virtual buttons that appear frequently in the interiors of modern cars, there is a claim.

In the updated hatchback and sedan Civic for the European market you can see the new control unit multimedia system, where instead of virtual buttons used good old physical. Now you do not need to adjust the volume, slide your finger on a smooth panel. Plus there are quick access buttons to the navigation map and the phone. This was not before.

As before restyling, the Civic in Europe is equipped with three turbo engines to choose from ― petrol 1.0 (126 HP) and 1.5 (182 HP) and diesel 1.6 (120 HP). Depending on the version of the car equipped with six-speed “mechanics” or variator devyatietazhnyj “automatic”.

In the cabin — other finishing materials to the front and door panels, improved insulation. Optionally available electrically adjustable driver’s seat in eight directions.

The Japanese did and appearance. Changed the plastic panel around the fog lights on which added L-shaped bracket. Diode lights with a broader and more long-range light based now on a black substrate, and gamma appeared the 16 – and 17-inch alloy wheels new design. In Europe, sales of the restyled Cívica will start in December this year, and the first customer cars will reach dealers in January 2020.
