This is the Rolls-Royce SUV: Project Cullinan prototype previewed

Rolls-Royce promised us a super-luxury SUV for your multi-million garage, and the latest efforts of "Project Cullinan" are this imposing prototype. Shown for the first time, the storied marque's first entrance into the SUV space isn't, if you ask Rolls-Royce, actually an SUV at all. Instead, Project Cullinan is developing an "all-terrain, high-sided vehicle" which, if it happens to get pitted against the Bentley Bentayga and other luxe trucks, is surely just coincidental.

Tesla Autopilot 8.1 release date revealed to restore missing features

Tesla's latest update, AutoPilot v8.1, should begin rolling out in three weeks time Elon Musk has confirmed, good news for those frustrated by what the very latest EVs can actually do.

VW Arteon concept teases new design direction

VW Arteon concept teases new design direction

Aiming to move out of the shadow of luxury sibling Audi, Volkswagen has begun teasing its new design direction with the first official glimpses of a sports-minded four-door. The VW Arteon is a sleek, coupe-esque sedan which the automaker says previews not only a future high-end product from the company, but its new design strategy for the overall range. That strategy, it seems, involves mounting more of a style assault on the premium nameplates in VW's portfolio.

Volvo trials concierge app to refuel and relocate your car

Volvo trials concierge app to refuel and relocate your car

A luxury car today means one with leather seats that massage you in traffic, but Volvo is taking a roundabout route to owner-pleasure by removing repetitive chores like filling up the gas tank. The Swedish company has announced a trial of its new concierge service, with which drivers of its most expensive models will be able to delegate the more mundane tasks of car ownership. The pilot will kick off with 300 Volvo owners, though only in a limited area.

Legend resurrected, the Jaguar XKSS skips 1957 to 2016 LA

Legend resurrected, the Jaguar XKSS skips 1957 to 2016 LA

It takes a special classic car to overshadow the modern exotica of the LA Auto Show, but Jaguar has done just that with the first newly-manufactured XKSS in nearly six decades. The "New Original" XKSS is the first example of an ambitious - some might say crazy - project by Jaguar Classic, the division of the automaker dedicated to preserving and supporting the heritage models in the marque's lengthy back-catalog. Just a handful will be produced, each by hand, in the UK.

All hail Mercedes-AMG’s E 63 S 4MATIC+, the anti-Tesla

With Tesla squeezing even more performance out of the Model S today, it's never been a better time to be an electric speed-addict, but what if your tastes lean more toward the Death Star than the plucky eco-resistance? The devils at Mercedes-AMG have just the answer, in the shape of the company's most powerful E-Class sedan ever. Dubbed the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+, it's 612 horsepower of fossil fuel burning magic.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet is kinda ridiculous

The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet is kinda ridiculous

When you already have some of the most luxurious drop-tops in your line-up, how do you elevate open-air motoring to live up to the Maybach name? That's the challenge the Mercedes-Maybach team set itself, and the answer comes with this, the S 650 Cabriolet, at the LA Auto Show 2016. Hitting production in painfully small numbers, it's the hyper-luxe version of the S-Class convertible.

Now Alfa Romeo has an SUV, and we have so many questions

Alfa Romeo may not be the first automaker you associate with an SUV, but the crossover craze waits for no-one and the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the result. Launched today at the LA Auto Show, the luxury SUV takes the styling of the Giulia sedan and inflates it for the elevated driving position crossover fans lust after. Of course, since this is an Alfa we're talking about, there's a performance option for those with speed in mind.

2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid priced up for eco-luxury next year

The 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid is set to hit North American dealerships in the spring of next year, taking the previously-released and well-received CT6 sedan as its basis, and then throwing in an electric powertrain.

2017 Lincoln Continental First Drive: How to reboot an icon

2017 Lincoln Continental First Drive: How to reboot an icon

Five minutes into driving the 2017 Lincoln Continental, a Mercedes-Benz C300 pulled up alongside me at the lights. “That’s a beautiful car!” the middle-aged driver called to me across the gap, to the barely-disguised pleasure of the Lincoln exec in the passenger seat. With less than 24 hours in Los Angeles to get to grips with the new Continental, I was attempting to multitask and squeeze in not only experiencing the car but figuring out what exactly had prompted the company to resurrect the such a storied nameplate now.

TAG Heuer Rose Gold is the Connected Watch you can’t afford

TAG Heuer Rose Gold is the Connected Watch you can’t afford

Smartwatches are already having a difficult time in the market. The last thing it needs is yet another model that no one will buy, not because it’s bad but because barely anyone can afford it. Unfazed by that prospect, TAG Heuer has just made available a Solid Rose Gold version of its Connected Watch launched nearly a year ago. Perhaps banking on its prestige as a luxury brand, TAG Heuer had no qualms slapping on a nearly $10,000 price tag on this smartwatch.

2017 Audi S3 First Drive: The compact sports sedan gets fiercer

2017 Audi S3 First Drive: The compact sports sedan gets fiercer

You don't have to put the 2017 Audi S3 next to its A4 sibling to see that, in fitting Halloween style, the resemblance is spooky. Audi's feisty little sedan has been satisfying eager drivers wanting the punch of the company's excellent turbocharged engines with the reassurance of its quattro all-wheel drive since 2013. Now, sitting - for the moment, at least - atop a mid-cycle refresh of the whole A3 range, it's getting a little more expensive and a lot more personality.
