Audi Confirms Q4 SUV Launch in 2019
We all expected Audi to launch the Q4 SUV by the year 2017, but the launch delayed due to the now infamous Diesel Gate emission scandal.

Most of us are completely unaware about the effort that goes behind an auto manufacturer in perfecting their ultimate supercars which costs a fortune. No, building these cars from scratch isn’t easy. It takes lots of testing and hard work to make everything work perfectly.

Here in this video clip released by Bugatti shows the hot weather testing that the Chiron went through before it was finally launched. There is no denying the fact how popular this supercar has become, not only because it is the successor of the iconic Veyron supercar but also because of the fact this is probably the most powerful production variant car that Bugatti ever produced.
Just to give you an idea, the Chiron powered by an 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder engine which packs four turbos. This massive engine is capable of producing about 1500 hp of peak power and 1180 lb-ft of torque. Yes! With those numbers you can launch yourself and this car to space. If we talk about acceleration the Chiron will complete the sprint from 0-100 kmh mark in just 2.5 seconds while it can touch speeds of over 420 km/h but, Bugatti electronically restricted the top speed to 420 km/h.
Bugatti has tested their newest Supercar at Death Valley where temperatures go beyond 51.5 degrees or 125 degree Fahrenheit.

Lamborghini Urus Gets A Green Signal From Volkswagen
Lamborghini first showcased the Urus SUV at the Beijing Motor Show back in 2012, while we all thought that this concept SUV will never see daylight but Lamborghini actually proved us wrong.

Lamborghini is making great efforts to expand their lineup for quite some time now and planning to introduce a new third model to their lineup which will sell along the Huracan and Aventador two door variants. After a lot of effort Lamborghini finally got the positive nod to build the production variant of the Urus SUV from their parent company Volkswagen. The reports also state that the newest SUV will hit the showrooms by the first quarter of 2018.
The Urus Crossover when launched will compete directly with some high-end Crossovers of the World market including the Bentley Bentayga, Jaguar F-Pace, Maseratti Levante to name a few.
However don’t get too surprised on hearing Lamborghini, who are mainly popular for building sportscars trying their hands on a SUV/Crossover. Much before the popular Hummer surfaced on the scene Lamborghini did produced the LM002 which was a sturdy looking SUV powered by the powerful V12 unit.
The upcoming Crossover will be powered by the company’s first Hybrid powertrain. The new hybrid powertrain was already previewed on the Asterion concept, which was showcased in Paris. The SUV will most probably share the same platform which currently underpins the new Audi Q7.

Although there have been no official words yet from the luxury car manufacturer about its existence, but a recent Walkaround video of the SUV gave us a full glimpse of the SUV in the flesh. Surprisingly, the SUV was not covered in camouflage and looked like a production ready variant.
The new Maybach product has been badged as the G650 and will definitely be powered by a powerful V12 Motor.

Although bigger alloy wheels and wider tires looked dead gorgeous we were unable to get a glimpse of the interior of this SUV.
