Everrati Reveals Its Latest Redefined Icon : The Electrified Land Rover Series IIA
Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati™), a leading technology company specialising in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons through the integration of the very latest electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, today reveals its latest addition to its line-up: an electric version of the Land Rover Series IIA, a zero-emission utilitarian vehicle for the 21st century. A genuine British icon, the Land Rover Series IIA is renowned as one of the most accomplished off-road vehicles ever made since its conception 60 years ago. As the brainchild of celebrated automotive designer Maurice Wilks, the Series IIA set a benchmark as the world’s first [four-wheel-drive vehicle available to the public] Incorporating a brand-new EV powertrain, uniquely designed and developed at Everrati’s base in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, the company’s expert team of specialists work together to meticulously restore the Series IIA body and chassis, which has been sourced for both its originality and exemplary condition, pairing the fully rebuilt vehicle with an advanced electric powertrain. Justin Lunny, Founder & CEO of Everrati Automotive Limited, comments: “With the unveiling of an electric version of the legendary Land Rover Series IIA, we are continuing to deliver on Everrati’s mission, which is to craft cutting-edge, capable, highly desirable and sustainable cars, each with the soul of an icon. To do so requires unparalleled attention to detail and technical proficiency, with one eye on ensuring our iconic cars meet 21st century demands, and the other on safeguarding a vehicle’s original character and DNA – both dynamically and aesthetically.” Everrati’s first redefined off-road icon will make its public debut at Concours of Elegance as part of the Bridge of Weir enclosure, at Hampton Court Palace from the 3rd- 5th September. [Fortifying the fundamentals] Land Rovers are synonymous with ruggedness and dependability, therefore maintaining the structural integrity of the electrified Series IIA forms the foundation of Everrati’s restoration process. Once each component has been carefully removed from the donor car, including all bodywork, powertrain and interior parts, the car’s chassis and bulkhead are galvanised and coated in a protective zinc process to prevent future corrosion from the elements. [Customisation is key] True to the limitless functionality and nature of the original vehicle, Everrati’s electrified and futureproofed Series IIA is available in both modern canvas or traditional canvas soft-tops and safari hard top format. The wheels have been upgraded and are available in a range of colours, all are fitted with Michelin tyres, selected for performance and durability. [Go-anywhere, zero-emission abilities] Central to the vehicle’s evolution into an electrified 21st century off-roader is the conscientious and detailed integration of a new, yet fully reversible, sustainable electric powertrain. CAD-designed and optimised to ensure seamless incorporation, the state-of-the-art 60kWh battery pack features advanced battery management and temperature control. The power output of 150bhp and 300Nm of torque reinvigorates the car’s original character. Coupled with a true zero-emission range of up to 125 miles, the electric Series IIA offers both two and four-wheel-drive modes, as well as hi/low ranges for optimised traction and dynamic ability dependent on the driving environment, ensuring the car’s original access all areas capacity endures. Power steering and braking allow for a more accessible driving experience, whilst preserving and updating the feel of the Series IIA’s original controls. [Delivering comforts both on and off-road] The cabin has also been redefined and subtly upgraded to modern standards with a host of new additions to enhance driver comfort and convenience. Heated front seats trimmed in fine, sustainable automotive leather supplied by Scotland’s Bridge of Weir – not only noted for being of the highest quality but also the world’s lowest carbon intensity automotive leather further adding to Everrati’s overall sustainability mission. This provides the driver and front passenger with an exceptionally comfortable environment. Fine automotive leather continues through to the rear bench seats, featuring front and rear lap belts for all passengers that can even be heated if required. And no Series IIA is complete without a central Cubby Box for additional interior storage capacity.
Morgan Confirms All-New Three-Wheeled Model
The Morgan Motor Company has confirmed it is working on an all-new three-wheeled vehicle to replace the outgoing Morgan 3 Wheeler. An early glimpse of the model shows a heavily disguised engineering prototype undergoing durability testing. Having previously stated “The Morgan 3 Wheeler will return”, this announcement of a new model officially marks the beginning of the next chapter in the story of Morgan’s three-wheeled vehicles. Whilst a name is not confirmed for the new three-wheeled model, it will be defined by an all-new design, adventurous character, and significant engineering advancements. In particular, the vehicle will take inspiration from the many owners of the outgoing model that have embraced adventure travel and touring, and whose incredible journeys have reached all corners of the globe. Whilst many details on the new model are yet to be announced, the use of an internal combustion engine can be confirmed. Specifically, a naturally aspirated inline three-cylinder Ford engine, which continues the company’s long-standing use of Ford powerplants. Its testing and durability programme marks the most extensive validation of any Morgan ever developed. Orders for the previous Morgan 3 Wheeler – which started production in 2011 – closed at the beginning of 2021, with production of these vehicles taking place throughout the year. This includes the final 33 P101 cars, which saw a number of cosmetic enhancements to celebrate the end of the model’s highly successful ten-year production run. Morgan’s three wheelers date back to the founding of the company in 1909, when its founder, HFS Morgan, built a three-wheeled vehicle to transport him around the Malvern Hills. It immediately proved popular and spawned many variants over the coming decades. In fact, it wasn’t until nearly thirty years into the firm’s history that it would start producing four-wheeled cars. Steve Morris, Chairman and CEO of Morgan Motor Company, said: “We are thrilled to confirm plans for an all-new three-wheeled Morgan, a model that continues an incredible story dating back to 1909. The outgoing 3 Wheeler was adored by customers and enthusiasts alike, and will inspire this next generation. The upcoming model is an all-new ground-up design and the first whole vehicle programme to be completed under the stewardship of Investindustrial. Morgan’s team of engineers and designers have considered everything that the company has learnt from the decade of building and selling the previous model. We look forward to sharing more about this exciting new vehicle in due course.”
Porsche Korea Launches the Taycan Cross Turismo and the new 911 GT3
Porsche Korea (CEO Holger Gerrmann) launches the Taycan Cross Turismo and the new 911 GT3 in Korea as of today. Under the theme of 'Sporty Mobility of Today and Tomorrow', the exhibition emphasized Porsche's sustainable product strategy. The brand’s first CUV and already second pure electric vehicle after the Taycan, the ‘Taycan Cross Turismo’, and the first GT model based on the 8th gen-eration 911, the ‘911 GT3,’ were unveiled for the first time in Korea. CEO of Porsche Korea Holger Gerrmann stated that, "Porsche launches innovative and exclusive products by combining advanced future technologies and the brand heritage. Our mission is to pursue sustainable mobility and create the future for sports cars,” adding that, "The Taycan Cross Turismo and the new 911 GT3 are unique products that reflect Porsche's product strategy focusing on efficient gasoline engines, hybrid, and electric models." He also added, “starting with the new ‘911 GT3’, we will sequentially introduce GT lines reflecting Porsche’s racing DNA, including the Cayenne Turbo GT, 718 Cayman GT4, and more high performance models, unfolding the exciting Porsche Story.” “In order to repay the increased interest in Porsche’s electrified products, only one year after the Taycan Korea launch we have expanded our portfolio through the ‘Taycan Cross Turismo’, a versatile and attractive vehicle perfect for a sporty lifestyle on and off the road designed for the Porsche fans and enthusiasts of style and sports such as cycling and surfing”, he stated. [Taycan Cross Turismo] Porsche Korea is further expanding the product portfolio of its all-electric sports car with the addition of this versatile CUV, the Taycan Cross Turismo. Like its first all-electric sports car Taycan, the Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture. The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension also ensures uncompromising dynamics on and off-road. Up to 47 millimetres more headroom for rear-seat passengers and more than 1,200 litres of load capacity, loaded through the large tailgate at the rear, make the Cross Turismo a true all-rounder. The Performance Battery Plus, which has a total capacity of 93.4 kWh, is always fitted as standard in the Taycan Cross Turismo. The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo with 380 PS can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds through its overboost power with launch control of 350 kW (476 PS), reaches a top speed of 220 km/h. The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo with 490 PS can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds with its overboost power of 420 kW (571 PS), reaches a top speed of 240 km/h. Lastly, the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo with 625 PS can accelerate 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds through its overboost power of 500 kW (680 PS), reaches a top speed of 250 km/h. Driving ranges of the Taycan Cross Turismo 4, 4S, and Turbo are 287 km, 287 km, and 274 km, respectively. The high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension comes as standard on the Taycan Cross Turismo. The optional Off-Road design package increases ground clearance by up to 30 mm. This means that the Cross Turismo can also be driven on more demanding off-road terrain. The standard “Gravel Mode” improves the suitability of the new model for driving on rough roads. In terms of its visual appearance, it closely follows the ‘Mission E Cross Turismo’ concept study presented at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show: Its silhouette is defined by the sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear – called a “flyline” by the Porsche designers. Off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills. Especially for the Taycan Cross Turismo, Porsche has developed a rear carrier for up to three bicycles that sets the benchmark in terms of package size and handling. It can be used universally for different types of bikes. One of its innovative features is that the tailgate can be opened even when the rear carrier is loaded. The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo will start being delivered this December, followed by plans to launch the 4S and Turbo models in the first half of next year. Porsche is offering Taycan 4, 4S, Turbo Cross Turismo with a price of 138 million KRW, 154.5 million KRW, and 200.6 million KRW, including VAT. [911 GT3] The new 911 GT3 reflects the essence of sportiness by combining motorsport genes and innovations into the perfect high-performance sports car for both the racetrack and everyday life. The new 911 GT3 developed in close collaboration with Porsche Motorsport transfers pure racing technology into a production model. The double wishbone front axle layout and sophisticated aerodynamics with swan neck rear wing and striking diffuser originate from the successful GT race car 911 RSR. The maximum 510 horsepower (PS) four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is based on the drivetrain of the 911 GT3 R, tried and tested in endurance racing. With the 7-speed Porsche PDK transmission, it accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 318 km/h. The new wing and diffuser elements significantly increase down force and the aerodynamic pressure for high cornering speeds. The sophisticated aerodynamics benefit from the experiences gained from motor racing and generate significantly more downforce without noticeably affecting the drag coefficient. Its racing genes are expressed in practically all the details of the new 911 GT3. The cockpit is in line with the current generation 911. A new feature is the track screen: at the touch of a button, it reduces the digital displays to the left and right of the central rev counter, which reaches up to 10,000 rpm, to information such as tire pressure indicator, oil pressure, oil temperature, fuel tank level and water temperature, which are essential when driving on the circuit. The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur range is also available for the new 911 GT3 and is supplemented by GT3-specific options such as a lightweight roof made of exposed carbon fibre. Other highlights include exterior mirror tops made of carbon, darkened LED matrix main headlights and matching Exclusive design rear lights with an arc of light with no red components. In the interior, equipment details such as the tachometer, Sport Chrono stopwatch, seatbelts and trim strips set elegant accents in the body colour or other desired colour. As exclusive as the 911 GT3 itself is the individual chronograph that Porsche Design offers exclusively to customers of the high-performance sports car extending the ownership experience beyond the car. Like the 911 GT3, it boasts a dynamic design, consistent performance, and high-quality workmanship. Its housing reflects its Motorsport genes. Just like the connecting rods of the GT3 engine, it consists of robust, lightweight titanium. The timepiece is powered by an individual winding rotor reminiscent of the wheels of the 911 GT3. In addition, the coloured ring of the dial can be customised in the paint colours of the 911 GT3. The sales price of the 911 GT3 is 220 million KRW, including VAT.
