Mercedes vs. BMW: The Autonomous Car

In the autonomous car market, Mercedes continues to play a major role, though BMW is certainly making some recent moves. BMW’s upcoming iNext, an autonomous car, was recently given a 2021 release date, although BMW’s head of marketing and sales, Ian Robertson, suggested that the release date may be premature. The earlier-than-anticipated release date is likely a response to Mercedes’ growing authority in the young autonomous car market, with Mercedes having conducted autonomous car tests since 2012 and having released the stunning F 015 Luxury in Motion E-Class. The revolutionary 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class already provides a sneak peek at what autonomous driving may look like via its F 015 Luxury… Continue Reading »

Anna and Helmut Hofman own 18 Maybach cars—roughly 10 percent of the world’s remaining classic cars. What does one do when you have that many classic cars with no one to take them every day for a spin? The Hofmans have an answer: open a museum. Helmut Hofman first fell in love with the Maybach when a friend decided to court an older lady, and gifted her with a Maybach. Curious, Helmut asked the man if a briefcase of money doesn’t suit the lady enough? His friend answered that to show his love and devotion, he must give something that is part of his family—the Maybach is one. Since then,… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton holds off Vettel to win Canadian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton prevailed for the second straight race, taking a relatively hard-fought victory at the 2016 Canadian Grand Prix after fending off the vastly improved Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel. Vettel took the lead with a great start to the race from P3. He went past the two Mercedes, who had a bit of contact exiting turn 1, with Nico Rosberg forced to go to the grass and Hamilton aggressively defending the inside. Hamilton said he thought the start would be ‘a breeze’ after a perfect practice start. “But when it came around for real it felt like I was going nowhere, so I need to figure out what happened there,” Hamilton said. “I… Continue Reading »
