  • WAY UP NORTH - IN ROME

  • VANCOUVER BENCHMARKING STUDY TOUR

    Organized and hosted a study tour of the most interesting and progressive development projects in Vancouver for executives from SRV (Helsinki) May 8 to 12.

The convertible electric concept car is six meters (almost 20 feet) long and every single millimeter of it exudes luxury and elegance. This really is the first electric luxury car that harkens back to classic art deco proportions. It evokes the feel of automotive haute couture where every detail is super-luxurious yet the sum total is understated, distinctive and sleek.

Luxury yachts and private jets inspired the designers. The long rear of the vehicle echoes the tail of a yacht, while the wood floor inlaid with aluminum further defines the yachting connection. The interior’s soft, white nappa leather contrasts with the exterior’s dark blue paint finish described as “nautical blue metallic.”

The pinstriped suit inspired the radiator-style grille across the front. The front seats plus the armrests, doors and rear seats are all heated. The seats can also offer a “hot stone” massage or cooling ventilation. Other amenities in the rear cabin include a refrigerated compartment and bespoke silver Champagne flutes.

But those dying to buy one must, at least for now, endure in their private jets and luxury yachts. Vision 6 is a singular model vehicle and an example of Mercedes Benz’s vision for 2035 and beyond. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance is the final event of the Monterey Car Week and it takes place at the Pebble Beach Golf Course in Carmel, California.

Other notable manufacturers that introduced new concept cars at Pebble Beach this August include Acura, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Bugatti, Cadillac, Corvette, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Lexus, Lincoln. Maserati, McLaren, Porsche and Rolls-Royce.
