The pickup truck will not launch in India yet but there is a possibility of it launching in the near future
Mercedes-Benz Unveiled their very first premium pickup concept towards the end of 2016. It even received new ‘X’ initial branding as well. Although there is no chance of it launching in our Indian market yet, we sincerely wish that this beautiful Pick-Up truck makes its presence felt on our Indian soil sometimes soon.
Although the pickup truck market is not yet flourished in our Indian market, they are quite popular in the markets of Argentina, Brazil and South America. The car will enter production towards late 2017 and will launch in the markets of Europe followed by the rest of the world.
As far as the styling is concerned the soon to be introduced X Class looks identical to the Concept it gets a bold looking front grille which looks like it has taken inspiration from the GLS SUV. It further also features a skid plate horizontal bars and a big hood at the front end. A V6 engine will power the X-Class Pickup truck. The SUV will also get Mercedes like LED headlamps along with LED daytime running lamps. The Pickup truck shares the same ladder frame chassis with the Nissan Navara and Renault Alaskan.
The new X-Class pickup truck will be made available four-door double cab design and will get a carrier deck attached to the back. Like you already know by now that this will be a premium offering and thus expect the interior to be loaded with high-quality materials like Nappa leather, aluminium and also wood inside.
The X-Class pickup truck will most probably be powered by a V6 motor which will be paired to an automatic gearbox. The gearbox will send all that power to the four wheels of the vehicle via the 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
Almost every part of the Convertible was highlighted in this short video
Drop top sportscars always were little underestimated compared to their hardtop siblings. But that is definitely not the case with the Audi R8 Spyder. The German Auto manufacturer recently unveiled their most powerful and fastest production spec Convertible ever the R8 V10 Plus Spyder.
This is the same Audi R8 V10 with a soft rooftop which can be closed or opened within 20 seconds and can be operated upto speeds of 50 km/h.

This will most probably be the last movie that will be directed by Michael Bay
The Transformers 4 movie trailer is out, and as usual, it looks brilliant. The 4th movie of the Transformer franchise will be called ‘The Last Knight’, and it takes us back from where it all started. The trailer gives us a sneak peek back to the history of Autobots.
In the previous Transformers movie we have seen humans and robots going to war, and even in the upcoming movie we will once again witness the epic fight in between Robots and humans, but this time it will be on an even bigger scale. So does this mean it’s the end of human kind? Transformers: The Last Knight will most probably be the last movie in the Transformers series that will be directed by Michael Bay.
The lead character will be played by Mark Wahlberg while the newest addition to the Transformers cast is none other Mr Anthony Hopkins who is playing the role of Mr Edmund Burton. However, the most interesting and new thing that you will watch in this movie is that how our favourite Autobot Bumblebee has developed the ability to control its parts independently.
The film is all set to hit the local theatres in the month of June and when it is saving the human race from extinction then who else can do it better than our friendly Autobots right?
The car was tuned by underground racing find out how much power did it generated
At a recently held event, UNDERGROUND RACING’S Lamborghini Huracán set a new world speed record at 247.25 MPH / 397.91 km/h. Now this record was achieved by the Huracan in a 1/2 Mile track which is insane. Earlier this year a Ford GT hit a top speed of 472 km/h in a 1.6 km stretch of tarmac while the Lamborghini Huracan has dared to touch nearly 400 km/h mark in a much lesser distance.
We all know that Lamborghini Huracan is a fast accelerating machine and it can do speeds of 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds while the sportscar can reach a top speed of 325 km/h mark. Obviously, the Huracan which set this new World record was not exactly a stock car. Underground Racing-tuned the White Huracan which you see in this video stretching its wings. It is one of the first twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 of this planet. The tremendous feat was achieved with a little boost from the twin turbochargers which provided some boost that was controlled by the Tuners proprietary JRR MoTeC M1 electronics and firmware and also by the correct use of gears of the DCT transmission which comes with additional horsepower.
If you ask about power, then this twin turbocharged Huracan LP610-4 produces about 1200 Hp with the 93 Octane fuel while the same engine pumps out a humongous 2200+ Hp of peak power with the special race gas.
Watch the brutal acceleration of the Lamborghini Huracan in this video and do leave your comment below.
The driver pulls of the first stunt perfectly but watch what happens next
Toyota Innova is a household name and its primary purpose, or it’s popular because it can carry almost 7 to 8 passengers from one place to another. In other words, it’s basically a people mover. The Innova is naturally a people mover, and thus it is a bulky and heavy vehicle. Who would have thought of even performing some stunts like reverse drifting and burnout with this machine? But here in this video, you will actually be surprised when you will watch a Toyota Innova doing all sort of things which anyone of us ever expected from a car of this size.
Here in this video, you can watch some members of the Garage Autowerks performing reverse drift and burn-out on this White Innova. As you can watch the driver manages to perform the reverse drift correctly on the tarmac and then tries to do a burnout. The Innova like you all know by now is a rear wheel drive vehicle and thus he presses firmly onto the front brakes and performs a burnout with the people movers rear wheels.
From the styling it is quite clear that this is the old generation Innova and thus is powered most probably by the 2.5 litre, inline4, turbocharger diesel engine displacing 2494 cc produces about 102 Ps of peak power at 3600 rpm and 200 Nm of torque in between 1400-3400 rpm.
This is an absolute insane video and you will actually have to watch the whole video to believe with your own eyes.
£65Million Worth Of Aston Martin cars Going Crazy At The Carmakers second UK manufacturing plant at St Athan: Video
104 years of Aston Martin’s rich history in a 6 minute video
British luxury sports car maker Aston Martin recently took over the possession of the second manufacturing plant at St Athan in South Wales recently. They have turned the place upside down and rebuilt it for their state of the art production facility.
To celebrate this takeover, Aston Martin brought together 28 of their very special cars at the location which is combined worth of £65 million and made this film. This movie was also made to announce their 104 years of rich history and also to celebrate their ownership of the three super hangars at St Athan.
So, how Aston Martin could have marked the property of this new place offcourse by driving across all these empty hangers by in these very special Aston Martin Classic and modern sports cars. The three very special people who were driving these cars inside the empty space were Aston Martin Racing’s World Endurance Championship (WEC) drivers, Darren Turner and Nicki Thiim, along with Aston Martin Chief Engineer Matt Becker. They were enjoying driving these rare cars until the ‘boss’ Aston Martin President and CEO, Andy Palmer. Showed up at the spot and spoiled the fun.
Watch how the biker handle the situation with their presence of mind
In a recent case of road rage incident caught on camera, a car driver intentionally hit a motorcycle rider and tried to drop him off the bike in our National Capital Delhi. This video was posted by Delhi Bikerboi which clearly shows that these motorcycle riders were riding in a group when a person driving a Honda City tried to change lanes without warning. When the driver was asked politely to go on the same lane, he did not listened or cared and even sought to push and knock a motorcycle rider off his motorcycle with his car.
These kinds of road rage are quite common on Indian roads, and the only way to stay safe is that one should not mess with this kind of drivers. Just act calm and remember that the motorcycle riders are most vulnerable as they have only body armours and helmets for their protection while the car driver on the other is safe inside their vehicle. The one and the only way one can deal with these kind drivers is by jotting down or memorising the number plate and reporting it to the local Traffic police who are on duty.
The video shows that the bikers actually let the driver go because they were in a hurry but if someone falls under this kind of a horrible situation act sensibly and keep cool and handle the situation in a mature way.
Watch this horrific crash video
It was definitely the luckiest day in the life of European Rally Championship driver Tomasz Kasperczyk. A single metal guardrail saved his rally car from plunging down the cliff when his car accidentally skidded off the road at the steep hill at the Rally Islas Canarias.
Tomasz was driving his Ford Fiesta R5 in the twisty turns of the mountain road while he misjudged a turn which resulted in him nearly driving his car off the side of the cliff. Fortunately, the metal guard absorbed the collision and prevented the car from tumbling down the hill into the cliff. Although upon impact the Cliff rail was heavily damaged the car as you can watch in this video was dangling off the edge of the road.
Luckily both the racers who were there inside the car did not receive any serious injuries and seemed to escape the situation unhurt.
Now, this is a lesson for other rally drivers as well as those who drive cars small miscalculations on the road while speeding could land you in great danger. In this case both the occupants of this rally car were lucky that the car did not fall off the cliff then the situation could have been lot worse.
The updated SUV is expected to launch towards the festive season
Motorworld India was able to get the first video of the all new facelift Ford Ecosport while it was being tested on the Indian road. The reports state that the SUV will launch in India towards the end of this year and for all your information this is not exactly a new generation model but is a facelift that Ford has given to their popular compact SUV.
Now, there were not exactly one but two different test mules which were caught testing at the same time. While both the test mules were wrapped in heavy camouflage, the changes that the compact SUV received was quite evident. Both the test mules had received the same changes that the new facelift Ecosport had received when it was first unveiled Infront of the public at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto show.
The facelift Ecosport now features a redesigned trapezoidal grille towards the front; the headlamp design is also new and gets integrated LED daytime running lamps. The redesigned front bumper now gets bigger triangular fog lights. Towards the rear, it gets a redesigned taillamps as well. The wheel design is also new. The facelift Ecosport still retains the tailgate mounted spare wheel which also gets a body coloured wheel cover as well.
Just like the exterior the interior too will get a complete overhaul as well. Although the interior of this test mule was not visible the facelift Ecosport did receive a new three-spoke steering wheel; the redesigned dashboard now will house Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system or perhaps will get the system from the current generation SUV. Apart from that, the seats will also be redesigned as well, and it will also get a new instrument cluster.

The SUV towed the Airbus over a distance of 42-metres to set the World Record
The production spec Porsche Cayenne towed an Airbus A380 over a distance of 42 Meters at the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. This set a new Guinness World Record title for the heaviest aircraft ever pulled by a production car. Air France was equally responsible in making this feat a success by providing one of their engineering hangars and one of their A380 aircraft.
The Porsche Cayenne which measures 4.8 Metres in length was connected to the massive Airbus with the help of a special towing attachment which was able to set the standard Cayenne’s tow bar. The SUV was driven by Porsche GB technician Richard Payne. The standard production variant of Cayenne S Diesel is powered by a 4.2 Litre V8 unit which is capable of producing about 385 Hp of peak power and 850 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a Tiptronic S transmission which sends all the power to the four wheels. The Cayenne S is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h mark in 5.4 seconds while it has a top speed of 252 Km/h.
To perform the stunt a 60,000 square metre hangar, which is large enough to house over 3000 examples of the Cayenne was designed specifically to accommodate this large 73 metres long aircraft. Off course the Contrast between the two huge machines was striking. There is no doubt that the Cayenne was taken to its very limit for this project. There is no doubt that the Porsche engineers are euphoric about what their cars have achieved.
Hyundai Sante Fe Takes Over Antarctic Becomes First Passenger Vehicle To Achieve The Unthinkable: Video
The Car has received few mods to survive the harshest terrain
The expedition began with Sir Ernest Shackleton who tried to reach the South Pole three times 100 years ago but failed because of the unforgiving climate. But after a Century his great grandson has successfully achieved the feat in the grandest way of them all. Patrick Bergel made his name into the History books by driving a standard Passenger Car across the Continent of Antarctic. The Journey began from Union Camp to McMurdo and back again at the starting point.
The mission was completed in December 2016 which was also the time to remember the heroic Trans-Antarctic expedition of 1914-16. Driving a passenger car across the Antartic was Hyundai’s idea. The Auto manufacturer went to Sir Ernest Shackleton Great Grandson. Weeks of preparation went behind turning the standard 2.2 Litre Hyundai Sante Fe into a Machine which could take on the harshest condition of the Antarctic region.
For all your information there were some modifications made to the Sante Fe. to survive the unforgiving terrain and climate. The entire suspension setup of the car was rebuilt, including the suspension, suspension links, mounts and axle shafts. All these parts were re-engineered to make driving in those harsh terrains possible. The gear ratios of the SUV too were lowered. Hyundai has also installed an engine heater to make sure that the SUV can start in such cold weather. Apart from that Hyundai has also used a bigger fuel tank and also installed larger snow tyres which replaced the smaller tyres. However, no changes were made to the engine though, and it was powered by the same 2.2 Litre CRDi Diesel Engine which is capable of producing g about 194.3 Bhp of peak power and 420 Nm of torque.
Are you safe in the backseat of your car?
Ford India has released another inspiring and thoughtful TVC urging their customers to make safety a priority and not a choice. After what happened with the Indian cars at the NCAP global safety test it is quite surprising that more than two-thirds (70%) of close to 22,000 respondents of a survey by Ford India didn’t consider safety as an important consideration while buying a vehicle.
According to Ford, they were one of the first car makers who offered factory fitted safety belts in their cars and even now they are making sure that each of their cars comes loaded with atleast six-seven airbags available at an affordable price.
In their latest television commercial which has been titled ‘The Uncomfortable Question’ features a father and daughter. While the father picks her daughter from school and showing her their newest car. The father tried to explain every single feature of the car while also explaining the safety features of the car. The curious daughter raises a sensitive question that how wills the father be able to save her because she is sitting in the backseat of the car. Then the father explains to his daughter that she is also safe in the backseat of the car because their cars come with six airbags in total which will provide complete all-around protection.
The hidden message behind this new TVC is that the auto manufacturer urges car buyers to take safety as their main priority. Ford portfolio in India today gets plenty of advanced safety features which includes ABS, EBD, side & curtain airbags as well as industry-first knee airbag to keep their passengers safe.
