Tokyo Motor Show | Finally, the Mini goes Japan

Munich/Tokyo. Just a few days after the world premiere of the new MINI in its home country the UK, it now makes its first trade fair appearance in Asia at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The new edition of this globally successful model will therefore be one of the highlights at the international motor show in the capital of Japan.

The instantly recognisable features of the new MINI are its unmistakable design – which has now evolved further – increased interior space and a new display and operating concept. But it also comes with an entirely new range of engines and transmissions, completely revised suspension technology and numerous innovations in the field of driver assistance systems, making it one of the most spectacular new products on show at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.

The debut of the new MINI in Tokyo is supplemented with an extensive presentation of the brand’s other models. At the international trade fair centre Big Sight, visitors will be able to experience driving fun, premium quality and individual flair in all its diversity from November 23rd to December 1st 2013 – from the highly sporty open-top two-seater MINI John Cooper Works Roadster to the exclusive design model MINI Clubman Bond Street and the latest all-wheel drive model, the MINI Cooper Crossover ALL4.

 The E-Fan is an Electric Aerobatic Trainer 

The Paris Air Show is drawing quite a crowd. I wish I could be there but I could only check the web for now. Aside from the Airbus A380, the E-Fan is one of the more popular planes. Designed by pilot and engineer Didier Esteyne, the E-Fan is one of the very few electric aircraft that has potential to really work. It’s not his first work as he previously came up with the Cri-Cri electric version. This time though, Esteyne worked with EADS– making the E-Fan and Airbus A380 somehow related. Read more

Seoul Motor Show | Hyundai unveils Hyundai Equus by Hermes #Video

The 2014 Equus may have been unveiled at the New York Auto Show but the 2012 base model has been restyled with more luxury in mind. Why, French fashion brand Hermes was recently tapped to design the interior of Hyundai’s latest stretch limousine.

The Hermes special edition Hyundai Equus features a cabin customized by the designers of Hermes. No info on how much the car will be but since the Hermes brand is part of it, expect this Equus to be more expensive than usual. Of course, that’s what you get from Hermes designers styling the interior. Rich leather, hand-made by Hermes artisans make the car even more pricey.
