Lamborghini Urus

First to appear is the Lamborghini Urus. The 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 is probably a conceptual marriage between Huracan and Aventador. A new breed super fast and super stylish SSUV that is currently the benchmark for those to join the club.

首先登场的是兰博基尼 Urus,所搭载的 4.0 升双涡轮 V8 引擎可能是 Huracan 和 Aventador 在概念上的结合。而这款新型的超快超时尚 SSUV,目前是加入俱乐部的标准。

Roll-Royce SUV ‘Cullinan

Who in their wildest imagination will think that Roll-Royce will be rolling out a SUV? Details are scarce and yet to have an official name, Project Cullinan is the working title for this mysterious beast. ‘Cullinan’ is the name of the largest diamond ever found.

而无论大家想象力再丰富,谁会想到劳斯莱斯会推出一款 SUV?虽然细节欠缺,还没有正式的名字,Cullinan 计划是这个神秘野兽的标志。“Cullinan” 这个名字是至今最有价值的“钻石”。

Bentley Bentayga W12

Meanwhile the Bentley Bentayga W12 still helms the fastest In this luxury turf. A 2.4-ton car with a top speed of 300km per hour, the W12 Bentayga has been on the throne of the four-wheel drive sector since it was launched in 2016 and still showing no sign of retirement.

与此同时,宾利 Bentayga W12 仍是这一豪华领域中速度最快的车款。一辆 2.4 吨的汽车,最高时速达到 300 公里,自 2016 年推出以来,一直占据越野跑车的宝座,至今仍未有退休的迹象

Aston Martin’s DBX

On the other hand, Aston Martin’s DBX concept was revealed at the Geneva motor show in 2015 but production is only expected next year in 2019.  The concept and drawings suggested a svelte and more stylish assault on the crossover market than that offered so far. James Bond will probably have the first drive.

另外,阿斯顿·马丁的 DBX 概念车曾于 2015年日内瓦车展上亮相,但预计 2019 年才会投产。概念和设计定稿显示,这是目前跨界市场上,最有全新时尚攻击力的车型,而 007 占士邦可能会是首个试驾司机。

Land Rover – SVAutobiography Dynamic

Last but not least would be the SVAutobiography Dynamic. This is the most prestigious model in the Land Rover’s series that maintain its reputation of being smooth on roads and a pro when it ventures off roads with its supercharged 5.0-liter V8 producing 557bhp. With a big price tag, this model has a luxury interior that includes remote control four zone climate control and perforated leather seats.

最后重点推介SVAutobiography Dynamic。这是路虎系列中极负盛名的车款,保持了在公路上顺畅无阻的声誉,同时也是一款专业的车型,配备了马力5.0升的增压V8发动机,最大功率为557bhp。当然,这款车价格不菲,内饰豪华,包括遥控四区气候控制和穿孔皮革座椅。

CORUM RETURNS TO ITS ROOT 海军上将传奇CORUM回到初心

“It was an obvious choice given the watches’ nautical inspiration. Mother-of-pearl is a natural material that is only produced at the bottom of the ocean. Meanwhile wood is the ultimate symbol of sailing.”

“作为出自航海的灵感绽现,这是最契合的选择。珍珠母是一种只能在深海生产的天然物质。与此同时,木料是航船的终极象征。”

– Jérôme Biard, CEO 首席执行官

When it comes to Corum, the iconic Bubble and Golden Bridge would probably be the series most watch collectors would associate with. However this leading brand in luxury watch making since 1955 is returning to its roots by decorating the dials of its new Admiral Legend pieces in entirely natural materials with eight variations crafted from mother-of-pearl or wood, the brand is reconnecting with its original heritage of artistic crafts while building on the marine inspiration of its Admiral collection. Featuring three hands and date, a chronograph or small seconds, the eight new Legend pieces are expanding the horizons of the Admiral collection. These models come with a satin, steel or vulcanised rubber bracelet and are available in 32 mm, 38 mm or 42 mm sizes.

The new Legend pieces stay true to the Admiral spirit with a dodecagonal bezel, dauphine hands, an automatics calibre, 12 pennant-shaped hour markers and an open screw-down case back. Every single one of the mother-of-pearl models (32 mm and 38 mm) presents a slightly different dial composition, as this natural material is unique by nature. Each piece is hand-assembled to form lively designs where the dial endlessly plays with the light, shifting from shades of blue to green and then to grey.

说到昆仑手表 (Corum),其标志性的泡泡博彩 (Bubble) 和金桥 (Golden Bridge) 系列很可能是大多数手表收藏者会先联想到的。

然而,这个自1955年以来领先的奢侈手表品牌在高档手表制作上正在回归本行初心。全新的8款海军上将传奇作品的表盘装饰是采用天然材料珍珠母或木质制造,这品牌重新结合了传统艺术工艺,尤其是集合以航海概念打造的海军上将系列。这8件新的传奇作品以三重表扣和日期,计时码表或小秒钟为特色,拓展海军上将系列的收藏视野。它们将可搭配缎子、钢或硫化橡胶材质的表链,大小分别为32毫米,38毫米或42毫米。

全新 Admiral Legend 保持海军上将精神中真实质朴的一面。十二角形斜切面边框,太妃指针,自动上链机芯,12个盆形小时标记和螺旋把头的表壳底盖。每一个珍珠母材质的型号(32毫米和38毫米)表盘都将呈现略微不一致的形态,因为这种天然材料是独一无二的,每一件皆为手工组装而成的活力设计,表盘不断与光线形成互动,从深浅蓝渐变为绿色,然后再显现灰色。

ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA VISUAL CONCEPT 奢华视觉概念

Lagonda_Vision_Concept_Exterior-Lagonda_Vision_Concept_Interior (2)

Aston Martin is proud to present Lagonda Vision Concept – marking the beginning of a new range of state of the art, emission-free luxury vehicles. Production is planned to start in 2021.

Lagonda strives to be the world’s first zero emission luxury brand. It will confound traditional thinking and take advantage of the latest advances in electrification and autonomous driving technologies, which amount to the biggest revolution in land-bound transportation since the invention of the car.

Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Andy Palmer believes that people associate luxury in their cars with a certain traditional and even old-fashioned approach because, to date, that is all that has been available to them. According to him, “Lagonda exists to challenge that thinking and prove that being modern and luxurious are not mutually exclusive concepts.”

The Lagonda Vision Concept also forecasts a world with a high level of autonomy. Its design is equivalent with level four autonomous driving, meaning the car is capable of driving itself in all routine circumstances and on all recognizable roads. As a result, the steering wheel can not only move from left to right hand drive according to need, in autonomous mode, it can also retract entirely allowing front seat passengers to rotate through 180 degrees to engage in face to face conversation with those in the back. In the meantime, the car will not only have 360-degree awareness of the world around it, but also fully connected to it.

阿斯顿.马丁 (Aston Martin) 自豪地展现 Lagonda 未来概念和标志着全新的艺术形态—启动零排放奢华概念车计划,车子生产预计将于 2021 年开始。

Lagonda 将是作为世界上第一个零排放的奢华车品牌。这将颠覆传统思维方式,并巧妙利用电气化和自动驾驶技术的最新进程,这是自汽车发明以来,陆路交通运输的最大革命性突破。

阿斯顿·马丁总裁兼首席执行员 Andy Palmer 博士认为,人们常将豪车与某种正统的甚至老式的观念联系在一起,因为到目前为止,这些都是感受到的状况。“Lagonda 的存在是为了挑战这种想法,并证明现代化和奢华感并非相互排斥。”

Lagonda 还预测了一个高度自治的状态,设计相当于 4 个自主驾驶的水平,这意味着车子可在所有常规情况下自动驾驶和识别道路。因此,方向盘不仅可依据需求,从左手到右手开车,在自动模式下,前排座椅可旋转 180 度以面向后方进行对谈,方向盘则可在自动驾驶过程中分开并折叠。同时,车子不仅可以 360 度的认知周边状况,也可以完全连接。
