AutoComplete: Jaguar's F-Type undergoes a little evolution for 2021

Roadshow
Welcome to roadshows auto complete your weekly roundup of the biggest news in the automotive world. This week we have news on Tesla cyber truck and it's surprising aerodynamics Bentley's limited edition Conti gt Pikes Peak tribute car and more. But first, let's start with jaguars refreshed f time. Listen, we've loved the F type since it came out and that's in large part because it's such a handsome car. That's why we're glad that Jaguar decided to go with subtle evolution rather than revolution when it pinned the cars 2021 refresh. Casual observers might find it tough to distinguish between the old and new versions, but we're loving the enlarge grille, reworked bumpers, generally softer, more organic lines. The interior also looks largely the same as before, but Tech gets a much needed update. Perhaps best of all, Jack retooled the F type suspension for more comfort and better stability, its speed. Look for it and dealers sometime later next year. Tesla cyber truck sure looks like it's got all the aerodynamics styling of a particularly trunky doorstop but if the work done by an aerospace engineer on Twitter is to be believed Looks can be deceiving. Now, to be fair, the cyber truck isn't exactly a Citroen DS in the wind tunnel, but it's certainly in line with other trucks and Tesla boss Elon Musk says that if the brand makes some tweaks, it could snag a drag coefficient of just 0.30 Which is about the same as a Ford Focus ST, not bad right. We reported recently that Lucid Motors had broken grown on it's Arizona factory and that it was finalizing plans to put the Air luxury EV into production. Now we know that it's got more specific ambitions than that because it's saying that the car will be in full Full swing by late next year. Furthermore, it saying that the Casa Grande Arizona factory will be responsible for creating nearly 5,000 jobs in that area, including indirect employment from suppliers and so forth. Now we just have to kick back and see if the Audi back to Lucid can actually follow through with his grand plans. Bentley's Continental GT Pikes Peak racecar was pretty damn cool. It was massive, it was green and it was able to collect a record despite being surprisingly stock. [UNKNOWN] in case you forgot is a sporting brand from way back so it's seeking to celebrate that run up America's mountain with a new special edition County, but also being that leaves there's only gonna be 15 of them. Now before you get all excited this thing is really just an appearance package for the W12 powered continental. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. In any case, you get special radium, green, pink, and a whole bunch of carbon fiber trim pieces. You can even opt for a cool grill with The number 100 on it celebrating Bentley centennial. Buicks regal aka it's a rebadged opal is completed as of next year and that includes the cool looking but not so hot selling regal tour x The folks from Buick have cited the brand's continued commitment to bringing customers more SUVs and crossovers. But, thankfully Buick's regal redecide won't affect more than us yanks. Buick is still gonna sell the car in China where the brand is extremely popular. Also the regal that we get is known as the holding commodore down in Australia. And representatives from Holden say that, Buick's decision has no bearing on them. Plastic sucks. It is energy-intensive to make, persist in the environment long after its outlived its actually usefulness, and it's used for pretty much everything. That's why when we found out that Ford was working with McDonald's to come up with a new kind of hybrid plastic using leftovers from the coffee [UNKNOWN] process We were intrigued. See what Ford is doing is taking coffee chaff, aka the thin papery skin that comes out of the coffee bean during the roasting process, and is using it as filler in plastic battery car parts. This process results in plastic that's 20% lighter and requires 25% less energy to make. The fist parts to use this will be headlight housings with more to follow soon. In the world of the Nissan GTR the [INAUDIBLE] Design designed GT-R50 holds a few important records. Namely, it's the best looking GTR at the Art 35 family. It's also the most expensive at 1.1 million bones, clams or whatever you call them. And finally, it is one of the rarest with just 50 example set drill off the production line. And it's that last bit of information that we're interested in now because Nissan is confirmed the first few GTR 15 will be making their way to customers by the end of 2020. With the rest coming sometime in 2021. That's it for Autocomplete this week.
