2018 Toyota Crown revealed
Toyota brought out the latest generation of its flagship luxury sedan in the Japanese market. Currently in its 15th generation, the Crown is also among the first generation of cars that will be equipped with Toyota’s Data Communication Module as standard; the other car being the recently revealed Corolla Sport. The brand’s new connected car technology offers 24x7 connectivity services focused on safety, security, comfort, and convenience based on real-time driving data. The data communication module helps connect with other cars, and infrastructure as well, to aid in safer driving. The car also gets Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – a suite of features that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, intelligent cruise control, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and even auto high beams. The Crown is underpinned by a new platform, which is based on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) strategy. The powertrain options include two hybrid systems and a turbo-petrol engine. The 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid system has a combined output of 226hp, the bigger 3.5-litre V6 petrol-hybrid system puts out over 359hp and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the turbo-petrol engine makes 245hp and 350Nm of torque. All the powertrains have been placed lower in the body to achieve a lower center of gravity. The ;models were tested on the Nürburgring circuit during its development. The car has a low slung nose and has a long sleek profile that runs all the way to the boot. There is also an RS variant on offer which offers 18-inch aluminum wheels, four exhaust tailpipes, a rear spoiler and black door frames. The interiors feature a clean design dashboard with dual displays. An 8-inch display sits at the back for viewing information while driving while a 7-inch screen is placed at the bottom for easier operation. There has been no official word about the Crown coming to India; however, the all-new Corolla which is based on the same TNGA platform will make it to our country. [...]

Nissan and Italdesign unveil GT-R50 prototype
To celebrate 50 years of the GT-R and Italdesign, Nissan has revealed a GT-R prototype which was created in collaboration with the design house. Named the GT-R50, the one-off collaboration is based on the GT-R Nismo. The development, engineering and building of the car was all Italdesign’s work, while the design itself was a project undertaken by Nissan’s London and San Diego design centres. No element of the car’s outward appearance remains untouched – even its roof line has been lowered by 54mm. The prototype is longer, wider and lower to the ground than the Nismo on which it’s based. Gold highlights have been used throughout the exterior, which seems to have undergone a dramatic restyle. Meanwhile, the car’s original features have been exaggerated and improved on an aerodynamic level, including its huge adjustable rear wing. With respect to performance, the car’s 3.8-litre V6 engine now produces 720hp and 780Nm of torque – up from the 600hp and 652Nm of the ‘regular’ GT-R Nismo. Its performance has been boosted, given the car’s special prototype status. It has also been fitted with race-spec turbochargers, a larger intercooler system, adjustable dampers, and heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, bearings and connecting rods. Its intake and exhaust systems have been tweaked to achieve the 120hp boost from the Nismo’s figures.  “How often do you get to ask, ‘What if we created a GT-R without limits,’ and then actually get to build it?” said Nissan design boss Alfonso Albaisa. “This is a rare window in time when two big moments intersect: 50 years of Italdesign shaping the automotive world and 50 years of Nissan generating excitement through our iconic GT-R. So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT-R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership.” The Japanese carmaker quickly clarified that the car is not related to the next-generation GT-R (due around 2020) but wouldn’t comment when asked whether Italdesign would be involved in the next GT-R’s development. The next-gen GT-R is expected to have a high-output hybrid powertrain and retain its four-wheel-drive drivetrain. Also see:   [...]

In run-up to elections, the former cricketer has drawn wide support as well as claims he is complicit with the militaryOutside a samosa stall in Lahore, the home town of Imran Khan, a group of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporters put down their forks to recall the glories of the 1992 Cricket World Cup, when the final wicket fell like a matchstick before the fast bowling of the team captain. “He was like a tiger,” says Imran Raja, who remembers the final. “I watch it all the time on YouTube,” chips in 21-year-old Hassan, mourning that he was not alive to see Khan lift the trophy.On 25 July, Pakistan holds a general election in which Khan, who founded the PTI in 1996 and goes by the nickname Captain, stands a good chance of a still more significant victory. Posters bearing the party logo, a bat and ball, deck the streets of Lahore.
