But for 2022, Lexus is ramping up production for the RX Black Line models due to popular demand. The 2022 RX 350 and RX 450h Black Line is now limited to 2,500 units, with the RX 350 getting 2,100 units and 400 units for the RX 450h.

2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing First Drive Review: A Hero’s Farewell

If you're bidding farewell to internal combustion, say goodbye with a bang. That's the recipe for the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, anyway, arriving just in time for the automaker to concede that gas engines have had their moment and electrification is the way forward. Question is, then, is today's Blackwing just tomorrow's dinosaur?

Mansory Rolls-Royce Ghost has 720HP and orange accents

German tuning house Mansory has unveiled its high-performance iteration of the Rolls-Royce Ghost. Mansory has already created quirky renditions of a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi, and even a lawnmower, for crying out loud. And while some may look at Mansory’s Rolls-Royce Ghost as excessive or indiscreet, there’s no doubt the Mansory Ghost has an appeal of its own.

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

The idea of a "luxury off-roader" isn't quite so strange now, as it was when Lexus first launched the LX series in 1995. These days, lavish SUVs are par for the course, and if you're an automaker without one in the line-up then you're missing out on the meat of the market. People can't get enough of the upright driving position and all that burly, "I can go anywhere" styling.

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

After a week with the Karma GS-6, the surprise wasn't that nobody knew what the plug-in hybrid was, it was just how much I liked it. While the design may be ten years old now, rarity on the roads - and a convoluted back story - means plenty of head-scratching when you try to explain just what this swooping sedan is. Then factor in the fairly unusual plug-in hybrid drivetrain, and the dramatic drop in price earlier this year.

Bentley Bentayga’s new composite wheels are the first to earn TÜV certification

Bentley Bentayga’s new composite wheels are the first to earn TÜV certification

If you happen to fancy the Bentley Bentayga, you’d be a fool to pass up on Mulliner’s newest 22-inch carbon-fiber wheels. Of course, you might say, “my Mustang Shelby GT500 has carbon-fiber wheels, so what’s the big deal?” As it turns out, Bentley and Mulliner’s newest carbon-fiber wheels are the first composite wheels to pass all rigorous TÜV (Technischer Überwachungsverei - Technical Inspection Association) standards.

Lucid Motors goes public, grabs $4.4 billion and loses its last excuse

Lucid Motors has gone public, listing as $LCID on the NASDAQ and raising $4.4 billion as it heads into the final countdown for producing and selling its Air all-electric luxury sedan. It's been a tumultuous journey for the automaker from its founding in 2007 to here, and the clock is ticking for Lucid to prove it really can disrupt the EV status-quo as it has long claimed it will.

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

Sometimes, expectations weigh heavy on you. Big names, promising big things, and with big implications: the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is a prime example. After spending two full days driving the German automaker's attempt to redefine luxury through Zurich, Switzerland, it almost comes as a relief to report that the EQS surpasses all my expectations of Mercedes-Benz. To risk a cliche, it's the S-Class of electric luxury, redefining what a modern-day high-end sedan embodies through form and function.

This $465,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an unexpected lesson in simplicity

This $465,000 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is an unexpected lesson in simplicity

Of all the things I expected from the 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge - an SUV with a near half-million-dollar price tag - a reminder of the value of simplicity was not among them. Launched in 2018, the Cullinan is as luxurious, as excessive, and as attention-grabbing as you'd think, particularly in Black Badge form. Look beyond the glitter, though, and there's something more important there too.
