Chiron too mainstream? Check out Bugatti’s super-luxe sport yacht

What do you do when a Bugatti car isn't sufficiently rare and expensive to single you out? You buy a Bugatti boat instead. The supercar manufacturer has taken just enough time out from working on the upcoming Chiron to team with motor yacht builder Palmer Johnson, and the result is the Niniette series, a line of open carbon-fiber sport yachts.

Love it or hate it, this is the 2017 Evoque Convertible

Love it or hate it, this is the 2017 Evoque Convertible

A drop-top, off-road-capable, fashion-friendly, urban SUV might seem like an odd beast, but Range Rover clearly thinks it has legs in the 2017 Evoque Convertible. Taking the broadly popular CUV and lopping off its metal roof, the open-air Evoque has a fabric hood that drops in eighteen seconds, and which can be used at speeds up to 30 mph.

2017 Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro first drive – Diesel redeemer?

2017 Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro first drive – Diesel redeemer?

Damned by diesel, or redeemed by electric? The timing seems ill-fated for Audi's brand new 2017 Q7 e-tron quattro, a plug-in hybrid that arrives under the NOx cloud of the VW group's ongoing emissions scandal. Though on paper it makes sense - the plentiful torque of a V6 diesel paired with the eco-peppy zing of a plug-in EV - the fuel's already patchy reputation in the US hasn't been helped by the recent "dieselgate" revelations.

TAG Heuer Connected unboxing shows unflattering packaging

TAG Heuer Connected unboxing shows unflattering packaging

The phrase "new wine in old wineskin" might be a bit apt in this scenario. TAG Heuer has just launched its first ever smartwatch, running Android Wear, of course, aimed at the luxury market and squarely aimed at the Apple Watch. Coming from the marque, you do expect a hefty price tag, which, for this wearable, translates to $1,500. With that four-digit number, you sort of expect it to have a nice packaging to match. But as some people on Reddit have discovered to their dismay, that might not always be the case.
