Paul McCartney's 1967 Lamborghini 400GT Up For Auction at Bonhams • Gear Patrol Lamborghini 400GTs don’t pop up very often, and there’s a good reason for that — only 247 were ever built. An even rarer find would be a right-hand-drive example, such as this one. But, what makes this particular 400GT even more special is that its first owner is none other than Sir Paul McCartney.The 400GT tends to get overshadowed by the likes of Lamborghini’s first car the 350GT and the legendary Miura, but the 2+2 Coupe deserves more love than it gets. If anything, as the Italian upstart’s second-ever car, the 400GT helped cement its credibility and place next to the mighty Ferrari. Autocar Magazine gave it rave reviews back in 1967, saying it was “better than all the equivalent exotic and home-bre

Aston Martin Lagonda: photos, specs, features Aston Martin created one of the biggest talking points of the Geneva International Motor Show when it announced it was reviving the Lagonda marque as an emissions-free luxury vehicle.The Lagonda "Vision Concept" will feature a radically-shaped coupe and SUV, the striking wedge-like design an echo of the Lagonda's V12 heyday in the '70s and '80s before Aston Martin, which bought the century-old limousine business in 1947, largely shelved it.The company wants to "confound traditional thinking" as it enlists battery power and autonomous driving."We believe people associate luxury in their cars with a certain traditional and even old-fashioned approach because, to date, that is all that's been available to them," Palmer said."L...
Mercedes-Benz SL Won't Be Dropped Despite Disappointing Sales “We are working on a next generation of the SL,” Zetsche said. “The plan is to make a real wow car, a stunning car.” What he refused to comment on was a planned launch date, so it’s fair to assume it is a few years out. But what we are especially pleased to hear from Zetsche is the acknowledgement that a conservative SL, like the current car, is not in its best interest, sales wise. Bold styling choices are needed. “Whenever we accomplished that (bold styling) in the past, the SL has had a very good performance in the marketplace and that’s where we want to go,” the CEO added. On sale since 2013 and given a facelift last year, the SL is offered with a range of powerful engines, starting with the 3.0-liter bi-turbo V6 with 3
