Rolls-Royce Exhibition housed in Munich’s BMW Museum

BMW Museum

The BMW Museum in Munich is heaven for car enthusiasts who happen to travel in that corner of the globe. Anything about automotive and you will surely find your answers in this museum. It is a modern architecture that is filled with BMW memorabilia and BMW vehicles ranging from historic, rare, and concept versions.

The management of the museum recently announced the opening of their first-ever exhibit dedicated to the luxury car marque Rolls-Royce. The exhibit started this month and will run until March 2014.
The exhibition is in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of one of the founders of Rolls-Royce, Sir Henry Royce.

We wish that the exhibit is in the right geographical spot or at least has a special venue but nonetheless, automotive fans will enjoy the exhibit that consists of 15 Rolls-Royce vehicles that date back from 1907 thru 2012. One of the most awesome pieces you will find is the 10EX which came out back in 1926. That car was engineered, assembled, and driven by no other than Sir Henry Royce himself to demonstrate the performance of the ride.

Audi to field concept A6 Sportback e-tron to Frankfurt

Reports around the automotive circles say that Audi is planning to send a Sportback e-tron variant of the A6 during the annual auto show in Frankfurt. After showing the e-tron form of the Spyder Concept, R8, A3, and the A1, the car manufacturer might field an A6 e-tron concept this September in the much-awaited motor show in Germany. The brand already has a similar iteration that was based on the Audi A6 L, but this time the designers are coming up with an A6 Sportback.

The move can be interpreted as a clear intention of the Ingolstadt carmaker to introduce a third body style of the A6 that already has an Avant wagon and a sedan version. Recent reports hint that the A6 Sportback concept will be equipped with a 300-horsepower engine that will be from the latest S3. This engine will be paired with an electric power than can produce an additional 100 horses. The concept can go as far as 100 kilometers when using the battery power alone while the conventional engine returns a fuel mileage of 2.5 liters for every 100 kilometers. The sprint from a standstill to 100 kilometers an hour takes a little less than five seconds. The car can blast to a top speed of 250 km/h.

The Driver Awareness and Driver Assist that will be under the Driver Assist Package will be used in the new Cadillac models. The system will include automatic collision prevention, front/rear automatic braking, and lane departure alert. Another possibility for the system is a “super cruise” function that is still being developed for production and will allow highway driving without the need for driver input which includes speed control, automatic braking, and steering.
