AutoComplete: Aston Martin unveils reversible EV retrofit for classic cars
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
If your city is on the verge of banning classic cars because they pollute too much, Aston Martin has a solution.
The auto maker will begin offering EV retrofits for its heritage models in 2019 replacing the gas power train with an electric one Best of all, it's reversible fitting exactly where the gas engine did without modifications.
Thus far, Aston has completed one proof of concept in 1970 DB6 M.II Volante.
The 2018 Jeep Wrangler received just one star out of five in the Euro NCAP'd crash test program.
The Europeans dinged Jeep's newest SUV for lacking modern safety systems and only performing okay in the actual crash tests.
In a statement Jeep was quick to reiterate that the Wrangler meets, or exceeds, legal safety requirements everywhere it's sold And that in the US, at least, 2019 models will come with additional ADAS, like adaptive cruise control and auto brake.
Maserati has a new limited edition package, and I am about to butcher the pronunciation.
Edizione Nobile takes the Grand Luco trim and adds a bunch of kit to it, including a special deep blue paint, new wheels, and silver brake calipers, in addition to a two tone leather interior and unique trim.
Available on the Ghibli, Levante, and Quattroporte.
Only 50 examples of each car will be built, and it will cost $7,500 more than a standard Grand Luco car.
