Initially teased back in July, “Project Geländewagen” — a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Virgil Abloh — has finally been unveiled. Working with Mercedes-Benz Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener, Abloh has designed an artistic model of the iconic G-Class, which celebrated its 40th birthday last year.

As owners of a G-Class car themselves, Abloh and Wagener used their personal experience when considering how Mercedes-Benz designs could be seen in a new light. Their aim was to drive luxury away from a polished and flawless aesthetic, instead creating something that was more raw and natural.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Has A Radical Design, Coming To The U.S. Next Year

The all-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson has just been unveiled and as recent teaser images suggested, it shares virtually nothing in common with the outgoing model.

Now in its fourth-generation, the Hyundai Tucson is the latest recipient of the automaker’s ever-evolving Sensuous Sportiness design language. With that in mind, the Tucson features a brand new front grille with Parametric Hidden Lights that means when the SUV is switched off, the front of the Hyundai appears to be covered exclusively in dark geometric patterns with no obvious LED daytime running lights.

This edgy design continues down the sides of the SUV where there are sharp, chiseled surfaces and angular wheel arches. Completing the design overhaul is a radical new rear-end that includes split taillights, hidden rear wipers that sit under the spoiler, a smooth glass Hyundai badge, and an aggressive diffuser and bumper package.

In the United States, petrol-powered Tucsons will be

Design Overview: Mercedes-Benz S-Class W223 Vs. BMW 7 Series G11 Vs. Audi A8 D5

As usual, Mercedes-Benz has made each rival stop in its tracks and check what it needs to improve one its flagship sedan to compete with the S-Class going forward.

The battle of the heavyweights in the luxury sedan segment has been going for ages, and even though it restarts every seven years or so, no other luxury carmaker has managed to dethrone the mighty Sonder Klasse.
