It's called Plectrum the latest luxury yacht designed by the Italian design studio Lazzarini. 74 meters long, it is designed to be the fastest in its category thanks to a system equal to that of a hydrofoil.
The inspiration comes from the catamarans of the America's Cup but instead of being pushed by the wind, "Plectrum" moves and rises above the surface of the water before leaving.
Plectrum is very powerful with three hydrogen-powered engines of 5000 hp each that allow it to reach a maximum speed of 75 knots (140 km / h). The construction is entirely made of carbon fiber composite materials.
Mercedes has unveiled its new Vision One-Eleven concept, which combines dynamic design with all-electric propulsion technology.
The prototype is inspired by the extremely aerodynamic mid-engined sports cars of the 1960s and 1970s, and features such as gull-wing doors and a copper-orange paint job reminiscent of the C 111.
The interior of the car offers a new lounge concept reflecting the transition from self-driving sports car to autonomous electric vehicle.
The technology makes use of a new battery concept with high-performance liquid-cooled cylindrical cells and two exceptionally powerful and advanced axial-flow motors developed by YASA, which not only have a high power and torque density, but also take up little space and are lightweight.
The Range Rover Evoque comes to model year 2024 with a number of important updates in terms of both aesthetics and technology. The British SUV presents itself to the public with a refined and minimalist design, characterised by details that enhance its exclusivity.
The interior, on the other hand, is more modern and digital, thanks to the large 11.4" curved display, which controls all the car's functions. Unique finishes and customisation options are also available, such as the wool-blend Kvadrat fabric combined with perforated Ultrafabrics with polyurethane fabric inserts and the three variants of the dashboard finish.
Under the bonnet, the Evoque offers a wide range of electrified petrol and diesel powertrains, with the P300 AWD 1.5 turbocharged plug-in hybrid at the top of the range with 309 hp and 540 Nm, capable of travelling up to 62 km on battery power alone.

They are not only vehicles to be admired, but also represent a piece of history that makes us reflect on the continuous development of the automotive industry and the influences of the trends and technologies of their time.
Let's discover together these wonderful cars that marked the era in which they were produced and that continue to leave their mark on the imagination of four-wheel enthusiasts.
The 105-metre superyacht Soar, designed by David Weiss, is inspired by the elegance of large birds of prey in flight. Its polished black steel hull features pointed shapes similar to a bird's head, while the internal and external structure takes its cue from their skeletons.
Soar is a fast cruiser powered by hydrogen fuel cells, with an estimated maximum speed of 30 knots.
The interior can be configured in different layout options and includes open areas for entertainment and gallery-like spaces for displaying modern art.
Aston Martin presented the new DB12 model, a super tourer coupe that breaks the mould compared to previous DBs.
For the first time, Aston Martin decided to rely solely on the twin-turbocharged V8 engine from Mercedes-AMG, with a power output of 680 hp and torque of 800 Nm. In addition, the car features electronically controlled suspension, electric power steering, an electronically controlled e-Diff rear differential, four-level ESP and an eight-speed automatic transmission with shortened final ratio.
The cabin features a new infotainment system, a 10.25-inch digital display and remote connection via the Aston Martin app. The coupe features a muscular and aggressive design with elements linked to the tradition of the British manufacturer.
The Opel Astra Electric, the electric version of the iconic Opel Astra sedan, has arrived on the market. Thanks to the synergies of the Stellantis Group, the Astra Electric has an output of 156 hp and 270 Nm of torque, allowing it to reach a top speed of 170 km/h.
With a declared range of 416 km according to the WLTP cycle, the 54 kWh battery can be recharged to 100 kW in just 30 minutes or using the 11 kW three-phase on-board charger.
A modern, high-tech interior, active ergonomic sports seats, 10-inch screens in the instrumentation and multimedia system and numerous driver assistance systems are part of the Astra Electric's innovations.
Ford Bronco, the car that represents off-road without limits, arrives in Italy with the 'Outer Banks' and 'Badlands' models.
The Bronco takes inspiration from the '66 model, but with state-of-the-art technology, a 335-horsepower EcoBoost V6 engine, and a high-strength boxed steel chassis.
The body has four doors with a modular hardtop and the doors can be removed in just eight minutes. The four-wheel drive system is a semi-permanent 4x4 with manual engagement, and the traction management system has six G.O.A.T. (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) modes.

The Gumpert Apollo Intensa Emozione is one of the most extreme and exclusive hypercars on the planet. Its carbon-fibre bodywork and mind-blowing aerodynamics, with a rear wing capable of generating a force of 1350 kg at 300 km/h, make it a car capable of 'sticking' to the ceiling of a tunnel without falling off.
The 6.3-litre V12 engine, the product of Autotecnica Motori's Italian expertise, pushes the IE up to 780 bhp at 9000 rpm, which, combined with the six-speed Hewland transmission, delivers record-breaking performance.

To mark the 75th anniversary of Porsche and the 100th anniversary of Le Mans, the carmaker unveiled the Mission X, an electric hypercar that represents the future of the brand. The road car, with shapes inspired by current hypercars competing in the WEC, features a carbon monocoque and a body designed to maximise downforce.
With compact dimensions and an all-new Rocket Metallic colour scheme, the Mission X debuts the updated Porsche logo. Inside, the cabin is surrounded by a CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) exoskeleton and distinguished by differentiated upholstery colours and the presence of a dedicated timing and telemetry element.
Porsche envisions the Mission X as the road car capable of breaking the overall record on the Nürburgring's North Ring, thanks to its higher downforce and power-to-weight ratio of 1 kg/hp. Information on the powertrain is not yet known, but the batteries are located in the middle of the car, behind the seats.
