How Did North Korea Obtain Luxurious Maybach Limousines?

How Did North Korea Obtain Luxurious Maybach Limousines?

Daimler Claims No Knowledge on North Korea’s Auto Fleet

In recent auto news, spectators have pointed out that Kim Jong-un cruises about on his summits in Mercedes luxury vehicles. As everyone knows, Maybach is basically an even more luxurious Mercedes, at a much steeper price. Daimler AG, the Stuttgart-based company, states that the company has no knowledge on how North Korea obtained these vehicles. Currently, the UN has sanctions in place to prevent North Korea from the sale of luxury goods. This rule includes all luxury automobiles, such as Mercedes-Benz. So, how did North Korea obtain these vehicles? Probably from another country that doesn’t care for the UN sanctions.

Honestly, these vehicles aren’t brand new – so it seems like Kim is riding around in someone else’s leftovers. It could be China, it could be Russia, but honestly, nobody truly knows – except the people involved in the trade. So, let’s not point fingers… yet!

Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard & S62 Models

The news surrounding North Korea’s use of Daimler vehicles points towards two specific models. Not surprisingly, both of these models are the crème of the crop – Maybach. Kim Jong-un may not have the newest vehicles, but he has a sense of style. The Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard and Mercedes Maybach S62 are quite phenomenal vehicles. The brand new S600 Pullman Guard starts at a MSRP of $1,600,000. Yes, 1.6 million USD.

But, what about a used model? Honestly, trying to figure out depreciation or collectible value on a vehicle like this is like cavemen developing a rocket ship. It could be possible, but good luck figuring it out.

Traveling Abroad in Maybach Luxurious Vehicles

So, now the world knows – Kim Jong-un travels abroad in luxurious Maybach vehicles. These vehicles were seen in use during meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the same time, North Korea’s “Secret Service” runs alongside the limo, protecting it from any threats. Honestly, that may be one of the most entertaining portions of his arrival. Watching those men sprint alongside the limo while being vigilantly alert is quite amusing. What happens if someone trips? Do they leave that man behind? Hopefully, that doesn’t happen.

”I am a security guard at Al Qasr Mall and they’re saying someone rented out the entire place. Look, he’s even cruising here in his car. Looks like he’s super rich. May God grant us the same” – Security Guard at Al Qasr Mall

So, someone may have truly rented an entire mall to drive their Aston Martin inside while shopping. So, you may be wondering, where could this take place? Well, sources state that it was at the Al Qasr Mall in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. For those that don’t know, Riyadh is the capital and most populous city of the country. So, there are plenty of wealthy businessman in the region. Hence, this probably isn’t a complete shock to this part of the world. This city is like the Dubai of Saudi Arabia, but were not here to debate or compare.

How Much Would It Cost to Rent an Entire Mall?

Who Invented the Traffic Cone?

Who Invented the Traffic Cone?

Simple Design Increases Traffic Safety

In the early 1940s, Charles D. Scanlon invented the traffic cone that is known worldwide today. He was a painter for the Street Painting Dept. in Los Angeles when the idea arose. This idea probably came about due to the lack of safety while painting in the street. Surely, many accidents happened prior to this invention. Surprisingly, the first traffic cones were actually used in the UK in 1958 for the M6 motorway.

Now, traffic cones are widely used by companies and people worldwide. But, the actual patent for the traffic cone was approved in 1943. So, it took nearly 15 years before the UK willingly put the cones to use on the M6. This year, it’s been almost 60 years of traffic cone safety! And, to make it even better, cars are safer than ever! This is due to the newest tech in the auto industry such as fully autonomous EVs.

Traffic Cones Widely Used for Traffic Management

In modern times, the traffic cone is widely used for traffic management. By placing cones on the road, cars become aware of the upcoming hazards or dangers. Furthermore, cones redirect traffic around construction zones and other obstacles. Sometimes, traffic cones are in use in neighborhoods to warn of children at play. So, if a cone is in the street, always be sure to figure the situation and drive accordingly. Usually, a cone signals that the driver should use extreme caution ahead.

Not surprisingly, nowadays, the US Federal Highway Administration requires traffic cones while working on roadways. This is clearly written in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

The Traffic Cone Defines Safety on the Roadway

Road Cone Placing Machine Is Safer And More Efficient – Tech Insider – YouTube

Overall, the traffic cone defines safety on the roadway in the roadwork industry. From rerouting traffic to preventing accidents, traffic cones are an amazing invention. Sometimes, it’s important to take a look at the little things – the ones taken for granted. The traffic cone is a perfect example of one of these items. Without it, who knows how many people would’ve died working on roadways? Charles D. Scanlon’s idea has probably saved many lives since it came to be in existence. And, now with autonomous vehicles, safety shall only get better! In conclusion, let’s tip a hat to Mr. Scanlon on his highly protective invention.

Audi AI:ME – An Autono-Pod Concept Vehicle

A Fully Autonomous EV Concept by Audi

As with the recent trend, Audi is continuing its path towards the fully autonomous EV future of the auto industry. For the current ongoing Shanghai Auto Show, the Audi AI:ME made its debut to the public. Specifically, this car is targeting “megacities” where large populations live in vast cities with high traffic. Being fully autonomous, electric, and customizable, this car is pretty cool. But, no one will technically own one of these cars. The goal for Audi is to market these vehicles as shareable and short-term rentable. In reality, not only will less vehicles on the road benefit city traffic, it’d probably keep a lot more money in people’s pockets. Parking garages in major cities in the U.S. can easily charge a few hundred dollars to park monthly.

The Audi AI:ME will sport a 168-horsepower electric motor. This will work in conjunction with a 65-kWh battery. Not surprisingly, this is the same as the Volkswagen I.D. that will be releasing as well. And, to the disappointment of possibly many, this car is built to travel between 12 and 47 mph. Yep… that was read correctly. This is because most major cities are so dense with traffic, that these speeds aren’t far off anyway. Heading on a road trip won’t be optimal in this car but getting around a “megacity” shouldn’t be a problem.

Why not kick up your feet and take a ride? It sounds a lot better than sitting in the driver seat doing absolutely nothing anyway but waiting. Most people in busy areas know how it is… gas, pedal, gas, pedal, gas, PEDAL! Why’d that guy slam the brakes! Jeez!

Commuting in a Relaxing Environment

As with most fully autonomous vehicles, the steering wheel and pedals aren’t necessary to get around. So, to no surprise, the Audi AI:ME’s steering wheel and pedals retract away for additional space. To top it off, a picnic type table pops out for use during the journey. Depending on the passengers preferences, the lighting and seat config can be altered for max comfort. This includes power retraction of the rear seats. Furthermore, this car has active dampers for a comfortable ride.

As per the final notable attribute, this car has a body of aluminum, plastic, and steel. Yes, plastic! As long as its safe, this car will be awesome for the city people.

Tesla Explodes in Shanghai Parking Garage Next to an Audi

Tesla Explodes in Shanghai Parking Garage Next to an Audi

Tesla Explosion Damages Audi in Shanghai Parking Garage

Recently, in a parking garage in Shanghai, China, a Tesla Model S randomly exploded unexpectedly. Although Tesla seriously believes these EVs explode less than typical cars, it does happen. Moreover, it tends to happen on camera more often than not. But that isn’t a red flag that the car isn’t reliable. Tesla builds great quality vehicles of the future, now. As with any car, problems are something that happen to almost everyone at some point. But, truthfully, not everyone has a Tesla that randomly explodes while in a parking garage. To no surprise, this is not too far from where Tesla is building the Gigafactory 3. So, that leaves some people wondering… but that’s not of interest here.

Ah! The Poor Audi! Why!? How Could This Happen!?

After watching the video, some may feel sorry for the Tesla – but what about the Audi? And the parking garage? From the video, it seems the explosion leads to fire damage on the Audi next to it. Furthermore, the video doesn’t show what happens to the garage itself. Typically, fire damage can be critical on any structure, regardless of material. So, on top of a totaled Tesla, there’s a damaged Audi and parking garage. And, this doesn’t even show any other cars that may have been affected by this explosion. Hopefully, the Tesla owner has insurance, because they’re probably going to need it! Overall, EVs are actually quite safe, so don’t let this deter the consideration to buy one.

Is Parking Next to a Tesla Safe? Yes.

Tesla to investigate apparent Model S explosion in China – CNBC Television – YouTube

In the end, this scenario may leave some people wondering, “is parking next to a Tesla safe?”. Well, yes it is. Why? Because most Tesla models don’t explode, and that’s a fact. Take a look around, there’s Tesla models cruising every major city worldwide. So, it is quite reliable. Unfortunately for the Audi owner, their car was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And, that can happen to anyone. So, parking next to a Tesla isn’t a bad idea… just make sure to have insurance! Just kidding, but insurance is required by law anyway. And, to really think about it, the car wasn’t even active on the road – it was in a parking garage with nobody inside. Overall, this is most likely just a miscellaneous outlier in data rather than a serious issue, so don’t be afraid of EVs!

One of the most unique features of the Volkswagen ID Roomzz Concept is the apple skin interior. Yes, you read that correctly. The ID Roomzz has upholstery made from apple waste that is produced during the apple juice making process. All of the lounge style seats within the vehicle wear VW‘s new AppleSkin material. To complement this material, the seats can rotate up to 25 degrees and fully recline for relaxation. Obviously, this is a mandatory feature in autonomous vehicles. While driving a vehicle manually is an amazing experience, imagine kicking up your feet in rush hour traffic while watch some TV or a movie. Sounds good!

VW is Pushing Hard for an EV Future

Volkswagen Press Conference at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show – The Wheel Network – YouTube

During the most recent reveal, VW made it clear that their vehicles will follow the EV future. Obviously, as seen in this article, is the Volkswagen ID Roomzz Concept. But, prior to that, VW will release an all-electric ID hatchback and a compact crossover in 2020. And, after that, there will be a dune buggy, EV sedan, and the microbus. So, that is proof that VW sees electrical powertrains as the future.

Although, as with all vehicles, mileage is a concern. The ID Roomzz expects a range of 280 miles. While this is almost equivalent to a full tank of gas, vehicles will begin to surpass 300+ miles in the near future. By that, within the next few years. So, VW should aim for a slightly higher mileage, or at least make that motion on future models. Overall, the ID Roomzz is a pretty cool concept vehicle.

Rimac C_Two Hypercar: A 412 MPH Grand Tourer

Rimac’s Beastly GT Hypercar

In recent years, hypercars are the hype of the auto industry. Hence, quite a few manufacturers are working to own this sector, including Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and McLaren. But, only one car will stand out on top. Rimac wasn’t going to miss out on this opportunity – and they didn’t! The Rimac C_Two hypercar is a purely electric grand tourer (GT). Designed for both road trips and track, this car is actually quite the tech beast. With a carbon fiber monocoque with a bonded carbon roof, this car’s basis is racing. But, with tech features such as AI-enabled ADAS, this car can handle daily cruising around town.

Rimac C_Two – Side – Manufacturer Picture – EuroDrift

As the saying goes, “under the hood”, the Rimac C_Two hypercar sports 4 electric motors. Each motor is individually powering one of the 4 wheels. So, basically, each wheel has its own motor, leading to four-wheel drive. Furthermore, these motors produce a whopping 1,914 horsepower and 1,696 lb.-ft. of torque. This allows for a 0 to 60 mph time of 1.85 seconds. WOW! Moreover, Rimac believes this car can reach 412 mph. That’s absolutely insane! Who actually wants to drive that fast? Well… maybe… who doesn’t? Either way, this car is absolutely insane!

Rimac C_Two - Rear Corner - Manufacturer Picture - EuroDrift

Rimac C_Two – Rear Corner – Manufacturer Picture – EuroDrift

Backing up the motors are 3 gearboxes. There is one gearbox in the front with two in the rear. While the front gearbox has one gear, the rear gearboxes have two, allowing for maximum torque usage. Now, a quick peek at the electrical setup. The batteries are rated for 120 kWh allowing a 342-mile range. With this much power, that is impressive. But, don’t expect 342 miles while mashing the gas at the track. Either way, this car fits the upcoming EV future within the next decade.

Active Aerodynamics & Technology

The Rimac C_Two hypercar boasts a ton of power, but it also boasts active aero and amazing tech. Starting with the active aerodynamics, this car features the following active aero: air-brake, bonnet, front splitter, and rear flap. Next, the car has Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring (R-AWTV) that eliminates ESP and TCS by replacing it with a hypercar system. The purpose of this is to attempt to control this vehicle’s power in a better way than ESP and TCS traditionally do so. Next, there is the AI-Enabled ADAS. This system uses sensors to detect blind spots, collision risk, and lane assist, while also offering cruise control.

On top of the insane power and driving tech, the Rimac C_Two hypercar provides an overall “near gaming experience” as well as acts as a virtual driving coaching. The screens inside the car makes the driving experience feel like a video game. Obviously, don’t drive it that way though! Furthermore, the car has a virtual driving coach. The driving coach helps with driving line and other driving tasks. The purpose of this is to optimize the driver’s experience across the board. While the car sold out quickly, it was worth around $2 million USD. Imagine driving one of these around the track… only if! In conclusion, the C_Two is going to be hard to beat!

Bugatti Crossover with 1,000+ Horsepower May Head to Production

Bugatti Crossover with 1,000+ Horsepower May Head to Production

Bugatti Crossover in Consideration at Manufacturer

Recently, Bugatti is seeking to add a second model to their lineup alongside the Chiron. With rumors spreading across the market, Bugatti has two possibilities. One of the biggest considerations is a Bugatti Crossover. While not a full-out SUV, it would be similar to the Urus, but more compact and lightweight. It’d also sport a ton more power than the Urus, as well as the upcoming Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. So, if given the green light by Volkswagen Group, a crossover could come to market from Bugatti. It’s basically a revival of the Royale in ultra-luxury limousine style crossover.

Although the CEO of Bugatti, Stephan Winkelmann, is against SUVs, that doesn’t rule out the crossover. To back this up, Winkelmann actually oversaw the development of the Urus. So, building a similar crossover wouldn’t be a complete surprise. There’s also consideration of a 2-door crossover sports car. Depending on VW’s decision, Bugatti will move forward with either car, or neither. For all anyone knows, VW will decline both choices, leading to chaos amongst Bugatti news outlets.

Over 1,000+ Horsepower via V8 & Electric Motors

So, as with most Bugatti models, this car will boast an obnoxious amount of power. If the Bugatti Crossover is to become a reality, this car would probably sport the Urus’ motor. This is a 641 horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. Furthermore, the engine would receive backup from an electrical motor to reach a goal of over 1k horsepower. In combo, these engines would make this vehicle one of the most powerful crossovers in the world.

Who Doesn’t Want a Bugatti Crossover?

So, who doesn’t want a Bugatti Crossover? Well, surprisingly, there’s people that probably don’t. But, most of us auto enthusiasts do. Obviously, only time will tell if it will happen… or not. Regardless, expect a possible Bugatti unveil at an upcoming auto show… maybe. Furthermore, manufacturers are moving into a greener, fully electric future. So, using electricity to help power this vehicle is basically a requirement. And, the market has already shown electric vehicles (EVs) are popular. Although, some people may need help moving on from their gasoline engine. But many drivers are already ready and willing to do so.
