Rolls-Royce Low Mode

ROLLS-ROYCE LOW MODE

The Rolls-Royce driving experience is characterized by the feeling of one imperceptible and endless gear. However, there are occasions when the driver requires more immediacy or a different dynamic profile in response to terrain and conditions. For these moments, Rolls-Royce has engineered ‘Low Mode’.

On pressing a button conveniently located on the inside of the gear lever, the transmission will shift gears up to 25% faster. This delivers more immediate acceleration and amplifies the effect of engine braking. The result of increased RPM in a lower gear, when faced with steep gradients, is a greater sense of control of the car’s speed, particularly in descents.

Low Mode

  • Transforms character of a Roll-Royce at the touch of a button
  • Low Mode augments steep descent by shifting gears 25% faster
  • For Black Badge Low Mode enables gear shifts 50% faster and a bolder aural character

 ROLLS-ROYCE BLACK BADGE LOW MODE

Black Badge represents an amplification of the Rolls-Royce driving experience in response to demand for more urgency to match a bold, darker, more engineering-led aesthetic. Once the Low button is depressed, the full potential of Black Badge is unleashed, amplifying a purposeful character within the motor car. It achieves this by holding gears longer when accelerating, and when braking downshifts are made faster to ensure the full spectrum of power is made available from the Black Badge’s characteristic V12.

Rolls-Royce has engineered a highly responsive suite of technologies to create an experience that responds to the intent of the driver. This means, when the throttle is depressed to 90% with ‘Low Mode’ engaged, gearshift speeds are increased by 50%, delivering power with more immediacy.

AURAL CHARACTER

Every Rolls-Royce represents a profound collaboration between brand and customer. In Black Badge’s conception, this was extended from the design atelier to the engineering studio. This bold, new sub-set of clients demanded a more prominent expression of the engine’s aural character.

Rolls-Royce’s engineers worked exhaustively in the knowledge that this meant so much more than simply more noise. This approach – the result of more than two years of careful tuning – yielded a baritone sound that perfectly communicates the character of Black Badge as a subversive statement without betraying the sovereignty of the Rolls-Royce experience.

For clients who wish to enjoy the full Black Badge soundscape when stationary, the exhaust flaps remain open in ‘Park’ and ‘Neutral’ when ‘Low Mode’ is selected, allowing them to showcase the aural character of the car through the enthusiastic depression of the throttle pedal

Just after winning the 2020 NBA Championship, 360 Magazine got the chance to pilot the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan in a glamorous royal violet. This new edition takes the prize for being one of the most deluxe SUVs on the market, defining the post-opulence of the brand.

Priced at about $340,350, the massive machine encompasses greatness, class and refinement. This bespoke vehicle focuses on the purest craftsmanship by retaining the same DNA as its brothers and sisters. Its name comes from the exquisite Cullinan diamond, so it is clear that wealth is featured in all fields.

During a sunset in Malibu, 360 Magazine was pleased to witness the extravagance of the SUV first hand and was able to record its faultless driving capabilities. A film, by Jeff Langlois, is featured on both our Instagram and YouTube and exhibits the impeccable excursion from a birds-eye perspective.

Design

The skeleton is a perfect marriage of sophistication and power, bringing a classic SUV composition to an all-new level. The striking purple exterior ensures travelers will arrive poshly to any event. The panoramic glass roof is designed for a sensation of the outdoors, while the privacy glass allows passengers to remain discreet. Twenty-two-inch wheels, partly polished to two spokes, allow effortless driving while remaining tasteful.

Every interior of the vehicle is not only exquisite, but unique because of the customizable characteristics the driver can choose to meet all their desires. The cabin is equipped with leather seats and sheep wool carpets. Its interior details are decorated with delicate wooden trim and moulded aluminum accents.

Technology

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan has the most current technology that perfectly correlates with the ride’s complex elements. With a spacious back seat, buyers can select the Center Console option that allows passengers sitting in the back to activate a massage feature. With this option, the middle seat has been replaced with a central console which features a cooling tray, perfect for holding champagne flutes or a whiskey carafe.

All models possess a large tactile infotainment system and Apple CarPlay. There is an available entertainment option for the backseat which boasts a 12.0-inch screen so the backseat riders will never grow bored. This model is also equipped with a WiFi access point and a custom audio system with 18 speakers. Of course, the interior roof can feature the classic Rolls-Royce star-studded ceiling which dazzles anyone who receives the honor of being a passenger.

Performance

With a 6.7-litre twin-turbo V-12 engine, the car delivers 563 horsepower noise-free. Thanks to the unique soundproofing glass, the drive is quiet in all terrains. The silent yet powerful engine allows a fast and enjoyable journey. According to Car and Driver, it can reach a speed of 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds.

The Cullinan is equipped with all-wheel drive and is able to tackle the most difficult terrain, ideal for steep driveways. The air suspension alongside of a road-scanning camera allows the vehicle to adjust its height to avoid road imperfections.

Safety

The beautifully developed vehicle not only looks gorgeous, but has safety features that will make riders feel secure. The car has driver assistance technology, including night vision. It also includes a standard forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking, a standard lane departure warning with lane support, and a standard adaptive cruise control.

More safety features include blind-spot detection, information about speed limits, approaching pedestrians and preventing rear-end collisions. These components ensure all riders’ safety and have been designed by experts for reliability.

Ergonomics

The all-around aspects of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan combine to deliver the ultimate in comfort and efficiency. The V-12 engine uses 12 mpg when driving in the city and 20 mpg on the freeway. This exceeds the Bentley Bentayga and the Mercedes-AMG G63, both in the same category. With an 8-speed automatic transmission, driving at ease is this automobile’s responsibility. It has 571 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 627 lb-ft of torque at 1600 rpm. Not only is this vehicle designed with panache, but it has been constructed tactically to be capable and dynamic. Drivers will be enamored by this magic carpet ride while clawing to the road. A limited warranty that covers four years and unlimited mileage is included, so you never need to stress about upkeep.

Legacy

Embodying precision, this is a top for everyone who wants to drive a luxury SUV, no matter who you are. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez and 50 Cent were all seen cruising with the vehicle, proving this brand is supreme. From a young, savvy business person to a prosperous family with a toddler and a pooch, this lavish, well-rounded mode of transportation appeals to everyone.

2020 Polaris Slingshot

The all-new Polaris Slingshot is well beyond the ordinary three-wheeled vehicle. The Polaris delivers the ultimate rush in an automobile, packed with an open-air cockpit placing you 5 inches off the ground and a one of a kind, 360-degree visceral experience of the world around you. The 2020 Polaris Slingshot delivers on the longstanding attributes of the SL line while adding some very enthralling specs.

Riders will experience improved comfort and airflow via adjustable air vents. Additionally, the new Slingshot introduces the first-ever factory Heated and Cooled Seat accessory, and powered by industry-leading technology, riders can further enhance their comfort. The vehicle uses proprietary thermoelectric technology to cool and heat the seat in three varying settings. A flexible Graphene material disperses the heating or cooling throughout the bottom and backrest of the seat for full coverage. All seats are extremely comfortable and cushioned with accent stitching and the Slingshot logo in the headrest.

The highly technical seats are sold individually and are also paired exclusively with 2020 models. The Slingshot Heated and Cooled Seat is available for $1,199.99 at PolarisSlingshot.com and local dealers

Another addition to the 2020 Slingshot model is the Slingshot’s AutoDrive transmission. Drivers can operate a 2020 Slingshot with AutoDrive just like a standard automatic car with no clutch pedal or manual shifting necessary. This makes the Slingshot highly accessible to a wide variety of young drivers who might not be comfortable with the traditional gear shift. Additionally, each 2020 Slingshot packs Polaris Industries’ first four-cylinder engine, the ProStar 2.0L, and a completely redesigned interior – providing more comfort and convenience with a new steering wheel, gauges, and added storage compartments.

The SL with AutoDrive is available in Red Pearl and Blue Steel paint colors at $26,499. Pricing for the R model begins at $30,999 for a manual and $32,699 for AutoDrive. Both R options are available in Stealth Black and Miami Blue paint colors.

I-PACE

Jaguar I-Pace: One for the History Books

By Jake Porter × Vaughn Lowery

Possibly no one expected Jaguar to start producing and manufacturing electric vehicles. However, with the rapid onset of consumers searching for an influx of electric powered automobiles, it is not surprising the illustrious British brand provided its very first, all-electric vehicle. Moreover, to the world’s surprise, the antecessor to the Tesla’s Model X, did not emerge from one of the top European mega brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Audi. Instead the Whitley, Coventry based Jaguar Land Rover, which has been manufacturing gasoline vehicles for over 80 years, has now effortlessly executed a lavish battery-only SUV.

The brand new Jaguar I-Pace is like no other. Once only rivaled by the Tesla Model X, this fully electric SUV is one of the first of its kind due to its groundbreaking features. First of all, compared to the majority of other electric vehicles on the market today, the I-Pace is powered by a 90 kilowatt hour battery that delivers an exceptional 240 mile range, which could outrun over 90% of the fully electric vehicles on the road today. The one-of-a-kind battery has a superb charge time. A typical kW DC charger can power the vehicle 0%-80% in 85 minutes.

Secondly, the I-Pace’s near silent acceleration and smooth braking are just a couple of the safety features included in the vehicle. The general handling of the vehicle and cornering ability only adds to the value of the car by creating a smooth, highly controlled turn on any surface. In addition, the stiff steering makes the car feel heavy and capable. The wider 22” tires along with all-wheel drive allows the SUV to claw windy roads with ease. The two different breaking modes included in the Default Regenerative Breaking system regenerate energy by efficiently converting available kinetic energy to electricity to charge the battery and extend the range. By selecting the “High” regenerative mode as opposed to the “Low” regenerative mode, it enables an intuitive single pedal driving in many conditions. Hood scoop, flush retractable door handles and back spoiler enhance air flow with a .29 drag coefficient. This feature tops many sports sedans and cars in their stable.

The I-PACE also includes a 3-mode system which alters the driving experience. Specifically, the modes of the vehicle including “Dynamic Mode,” “Comfort Mode” and “Eco Mode” – each of which accurately controls the vehicle in a different way. Dynamic Mode sharpens the throttle and steering responses, while firming up the suspension system for more precise handling. While the Comfort Mode can be used for less-spirited or day-to-day driving, the Eco mode reduces battery load by adjusting the climate of the battery cells with safely heating or cooling while eliminating any other non-essential systems. Each mode, changes the color of the ambient lighting inside the vehicle. These modes are yet another wonderful feature that adds to the pleasant user experience.

Furthermore, the vehicle’s exhilarating driving dynamics with its 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft torque, produced by its twin electric motors (one at each axle), and its AWD, provide an experience that many drivers will enjoy.

The car is packed with ample road presence and turns heads wherever you go. Its bold, muscular, yet sensual lines make it aesthetically pleasing. This is a true driver’s car.

The Interior

Inside the cabin, the I-Pace comes loaded with an abundance of technology and safety features. Top notch infotainment system alongside of impressive appointments will impress most who step inside. The tempered glass and massive panoramic sunroof create an even more roomier and cozy environment for stargazing. The 825 watt Meridian sound system provides a concert-like experience. Of course, the vehicle also includes interior control panels and digital dials that are all extremely simple and easy to operate.

Comfort and Storage

Beyond it’s impressive all-electric range, its spacious and elegant cabin provide comfort for up to 5 people with ergonomic seating with ample storage in the trunk and, as an added feature, the I-Pace also sports space under the hood as well (aka a frunk). All in all, the total storage rivals that of today’s minivans. This attribute makes the I-Pace great for small families.

Conclusion

The Jaguar I-Pace is one for the history books. The vehicle is extremely difficult to find fault with. It truly has the appearance and spirit of a Jaguar. The comfort and the technology inside the car, as well as its sleek design, create a versatile vehicle perfect for an urban excursion or a local road trip. At $93,000 fully loaded, it’s a force to be reckoned with. This extremely driver intuitive elegantly designed SUV is perfect for a modern family and/or a top level executive.

Three Top Tips on Buying Your First Car

As soon as you pass your driving test, all you want to do is get out on the roads in your very own car. As exciting as this time may be, however, it’s still highly beneficial to exercise a bit of caution and patience. When it comes to buying your first motor there’s nothing smart about rushing in– doing so will see you face more problems further down the road.

Exercising caution doesn’t mean being inactive when it comes to finding the perfect car for you, though. You should still be proactive at this time, and you should still try to set up your life as a driver in the most fruitful way possible. To find three top tips on how to buy your first car in the right way, read on.

1. Sort out the financial aspects of the venture

Before you do anything else in your car-buying venture, you need to work out your budget as well as how much you are willing to spend. This is essential because it’ll stop your spending from spiraling out of control, no it’ll help you avoid paying too little and then having to face any buying regrets further down the line.

You also have to take future running costs into account. It’s no good just factoring the cost of the car into your financial plans. You also have to deliberate insuring the vehicle, getting it taxed, getting it tested, and then having work done to it to ensure it is roadworthy.

Something else that you must consider is how you are going to pay for your car. Are you able to buy the car outright, or will you be going down the financing route? Regarding the latter, if you wish to take out a car loan to cover your bill, then you should check out the best auto loans at Crediful.com. Doing so will help you make the most informed decision on the matter possible.

2. Be scrupulous when it comes to checking your chosen car

You may think that you have found the perfect car for you, but that might not necessarily be the case. Any vehicle can be made to look and sound good on the outside, but you cannot commit to anything until you’ve meticulously checked that your chosen car is in good working order. That means checking to ensure that the quality of your car is in keeping with its age, its model, and the number of miles it has to run; this means ensuring that the car can carry out all functions and purposes expected of it; and this means it matches its descriptions exactly. If you can’t perform these tests yourself, then have a trusted mechanic carry them out for you. Only then will any underlying problems with the car be unearthed, and only when these troubles are unearthed can you stop them from becoming actual headaches of yours.

If you want your first car to truly help you in your quest to grow as a driver, then it needs to be in full working order. Taking the above advice is the first step, but there is something else that you must do: take it for a spin. Only when you get behind the wheel yourself can you get a feel for the car’s capabilities. When you take it for a ride, you should test the clutch and the brakes to ensure they do not feel worn, you should head to a road where you can hit at least 60mph to ensure it is capable of high-speed driving, and you should make sure that the steering wheel does not vibrate while you drive.

3. Don’t trust everybody’s advice

As an inexperienced car owner, you will experience plenty of people sticking their nose into your car-buying business. The family members and friends of yours who own their own cars will try to give you an insight into car buying — their advice might come with the best of intentions, but they don’t know your situation quite like you do. There will even be car dealers out there who try to push you towards certain buys — the advice they give will be very much designed to sway you towards lining their pockets. This all means that the only person that you can really trust in this situation is yourself, and you’re the only one who can bring about the best results for you.

 

Your first car will always remain a favorite of yours, even after many years (and cars) have gone by. Be sure you invest in a car that’ll last for many years so that you do not have to worry about further expenses.

The Last Race

THE LAST RACE is an intimate portrait of a small-town stock car racetrack and the tribe of passionate blue-collar drivers that call it home, struggling to hold on to an American racing tradition as real estate development threatens its survival.

Award winning filmmaker Michael Dweck’s stirring imagery takes you inside the world of grassroots racing and eye to eye with the cars’ snarling grills and white roll bars that protrude like bones out of scarred metal. Yet a patient camera lets us know the drivers as everyday people and learn that the racetrack is tied to a deep sense of identity. The track is on the only piece of undeveloped land in the area—it’s worth millions—and the only thing keeping the bulldozers at bay is track owners Barbara and Jim Cromarty’s love of the track and its community.
