Aston Martin Q Lounge Concept

Aston Martin introduces its Q personalization program at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show to provide tailor-fit cars for the most discerning customers. Q by Aston Martin is giving buyers the opportunity to customize their car inside and out with different paints, trims, leather and veneers. The nomenclature of the program has been inspired by its longtime silver screen partner James Bond whose ‘Q’ is a quartermaster which customizes his vehicles with different features and gadgets.

The car is brimming with so much active safety technology that it can pretty much drive itself, but giving the S600 full autonomy would rob owners of its greatest feature — its 6-liter, bi-turbo V12 engine. Bigger and more powerful than the V12 that graced the outgoing model — 530 hp, 830 Nm of torque and a 0-62 mph (100kph) time of just 4.6 seconds — yet lighter and more fuel efficient. It will guarantee exactly the right levels of performance on tap at exactly the right time, whatever the prevailing road conditions. The car has a host of systems, from Collision Prevention Assist Plus to Active Lane Keeping Assist that work together to keep the car safe from front and rear-end collisions, to help drivers avoid obstacles, and track the movement of other vehicles around the car.  The infotainment system has also been upgraded to feature a new controller that will be immediately familiar and intuitive to anyone who owns a smartphone that uses finger taps, gestures and even handwriting recognition. Or, simply talk and the car will respond to vocal commands. Then there’s the full-color head-up display that projects the car’s speed, and navigation information onto the windshield — directly within the driver’s field of vision to minimize potential distraction.

Jon Olssons Winter Ready Audi Rs6 Wagon

Professional skier Jon Olsson has become quite famous among automotive enthusiasts due to his customized supercars built specifically for the slopes. Olsson’s 2014 winter project may be a bit more subtle than some of his others. He says the Audi RS6 Wagon is one of the most impressive vehicles he’s ever driven in stock form. In fact, he said the only car that came close was the Agera R. For that reason, the Swedish skier chose to trick out one of these 5-doors, giving the all-wheel drive wagon a winter inspired paint job, H&R suspension, and Milltek exhaust. Of course Jon is far from finished. This is a new project car, and he has left the vehicle with the folks at Stertman Motorsport to really take this thing to next level.

The FF, which is powered by a 651-horsepower 6.3-liter V-12, accelerates to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 208 mph. News of the $250,000 Ferrari FF patrol car comes just one week after Dubai Police authorities confirmed the addition of another Italian supercar, a $550,000 Lamborghini Aventador. In a statement, Dubai Police has confirmed it will soon introduce sports cars into its fleet to enhance its patrolling abilities. The authorities said the sport cars were built according to Dubai Police specifications and will help to facilitate policing on highways.
