Our favourite Latvians are back once again with a new concept which we’re told will is ready for customer orders! Dartz teamed up with Saxon Automobile this time to offer something new. They say that the car defines a new niche in the market place which they’ve named B.N.U.D.S; Bespoke, each car will be made to order, Noble, the name Dartz has history, Urban, designed for the city, Desert, with rally performance, Safety, solid construction.
The car is named after famous Russian Driver, Andrew Nagel, who came first at the Monte Carlo Rally in 1912, and apparently crossed the Sahara in 1913 using a Russobaltique car. The idea is that while the chassis is the same, with a titanium frame, customers will be able to choose their own exterior design. The sketches come from designer Alex Isaev and the rendering from German designer Pochwatta.
The Dartz-SAM Nigal Dakar will feature a Mercedes AMG-sourced V8 Bi-turbo engine. From 5.5 litres, Dartz hope to offer 650hp and 850Nm of torque. Enough for a top speed of 250km/h. Coupled to this, Dartz will install a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox with an AP Racing clutch and differentials. The whole system will be four wheel drive sitting on top of a titanium tubular frame chassis with carbon kevlar elements. Weight will be between 1890kgs and 1990 kgs.
Price for the Nigal Dakar will be between 250,000 and 300,000 euros for base model. Dartz plans to produce 10 units next year, ramping up to 40 units per year by 2015. This is believed to be the first bespoke SUV to hit the market.

Lamborghini Urus not wild enough? Eterniti Artemis not exclusive enough? Bowler EXR S not extreme enough? Then start saving your pocket money because Russian automaker Dartz has released design sketches and a rendering of its new Dartz Nagel Dakkar all-terrain vehicle – a vehicle, it says, is in a class of its own.
According to Dartz the Nagel Dakkar isn’t just a new model but the first of a new class of cars it refers to as ‘BNUDS’ – Bespoke Noble Urban Desert Safety.
The second car named after Russian rally driver Andrew Nagel – a man Dartz considers its “grandfather” – the Nagel Dakkar sports a 485kW/850Nm Mercedes-Benz-sourced 5.5-litre twin-turbo AMG V8 and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox tied to a titanium tubular frame and carbon Kevlar chassis.
Good for a top speed of 250km/h, the Nagel Dakkar is planned to be priced around 250,000-300,000 euros ($ 293,000-$ 351,000) – for the base model.

Lexus is voluntarily recalling some of its now-discontinued HS 250h entry-level hybrid luxury sedans after it determined that incorrectly-adjusted components on the rear suspension arm could age prematurely and cause suspension failure.
According to its official release, the safety recall only affects 2010 model year Lexus HS 250h cars, approximately 18,000 of which were sold in the U.S.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is already a very powerful SUV so it makes sense that for the 2013 model year, the Grand Cherokee SRT8 goes on mostly unchanged.
For 2013, Jeep added a bright white ‘Alpine’ and brilliant black ‘Vapor’ special-edition model which includes unique exterior features and Black Vapor Chrome finish on split 5-spoke wheels.
Power for the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 still comes from a massive 6.4 liter V8 engine making 470-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. That allows for 0 to 60 run in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, 60 to 0 mph in 116 feed and a top speed of 160 mph.
The 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 price starts at $ 59,995. Prices for the Alpine and Vapor special edition packages is $ 2,495.
Is the virtual world becoming reality?
Ford sure thinks so. It has been using virtual imaging of vehicles and interiors for some time as its designers and engineers create a new vehicle. I remember being impressed over a decade ago when I visited a Ford design studio in Dearborn where you could see a computer-generated image of a full size prototype car situated in mockup scenery on a large screen. It was not in 3D in those days.
Of course, nowadays Ford is using 3D “augmented reality” vehicle simulations to conduct “virtual build events” where the entire assembly process of a new vehicle can be simulated from start to finish.
Which leads to the next step – a virtual factory to build the virtual car.
Ford plans to simulate the full assembly line production process to improve quality and cut down costs in real world manufacturing facilities. It is using camera technology to scan and digitise real-world manufacturing facilities to create ultra-realistic 3D virtual assembly environments. Ford says its Valencia plant, in Spain, is taking the lead in developing virtual factory environments, which could enable remote evaluations to be conducted from around the globe.
Who might come to its rescue? Will the current management team come up with a viable salvage plan? Rumors about Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone buying the circuit won’t go away.
Whoever winds up owning this massive infrastructure will have to: be very creative, in order to draw race fans back to the circuit, have a lot of capital to make the necessary investments, have an outstanding business and financial plan with serious financial backers.
The Nürburgring race track, with its rich history of records and legends, established by the most prestigious automakers of the planet, must be saved.
Every automaker on the planet has in its archives some publicity footage that claims to have set some record of achievement of one sort or another on the mythical Nürburgring circuit! Read more…

True to their minimalist Spy vs. Spy appearance, only a few subtle details of the Alpine and Vapor special editions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 betray their exclusivity: gloss black grille surrounds and inserts, hood and door badges, a rear light bar (located on the hatch in between the taillamps), a bumper step pad, and a set of bespoke Black Vapor Chrome–finished split five-spoke 20-inch wheels. Other than that, the Alpine and the Vapor are identical to the plain-ol’ Grand Cherokee SRT8.
The MSRP for both the Alpine and Vapor special editions is $ 63,415, representing a $ 2495 premium over the 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8’s price of $ 60,920. Regardless of how you choose to adorn the exterior of your Grand Cherokee SRT8, you’ll get a full suite of options including adaptive cruise control; blind-spot and rear cross-path detection; forward collision warning; a leather-wrapped instrument panel, center console, and door trim; and a power liftgate.
All 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8s carry on with the same 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8 and five-speed automatic transmission as last year. Quadra-Trac SRT on-demand all-wheel drive divvies up the power for optimal traction in any situation. True, most owners probably will never put a wheel off pavement, but it’s nice to know the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has the hardware to back up that fancy paint job.
