Audi to Collaborate with BMW for Autonomous Project

In the modern world of business, we are seeing a great deal of collaboration, with many big brands joining forces with similar businesses and even competitors for different ventures and projects.

Just this week it was suggested that direct rivals, Audi and BMW, will be working together on an autonomous car project, an announcement that came as shock to most of us. 

Referred to as the ‘autonomous vehicle project’, the firms will pool their resources in a plea to take driverless technology up a gear. According to sources, the project will focus on creating driving functions to allow ‘Level Three’ autonomous driving on motorways. They are reportedly working on autonomous parking technology also.

Putting the industry one step closer to rolling out fully autonomous cars, the brand promises to launch the next phase of self-driving tech by 2024.

But, this is not the only project that has seen car rivals come together. Audi and BMW have also announced a $1 billion electric mobility partnership, aligning themselves with one another for many years to come.

But, why the sudden interest in collaboration? 

Well, with such great overheads associated with developing new technologies and so much risk involved, partnering with like-minded brands with the same goal reduces costs and allows companies to bring new products and services to market quickly. This is the thinking behind the BMW/Audi setup.

Luxury Cars Prove Popular in 2019

While overall car sales have dipped by 200,000 units in the UK this year alone, the luxury car market has never been so busy.  

This is according to research conducted by the BCA, with the organisation having gathered various reports which show further investment into the luxury car hire market.  

Focusing on sales from a Top Car sale at BCA Nottingham, the event that saw over £8 million spent on luxury vehicles in just one day. And, with many believing people to be tightening their belts as the uncertainty of Brexit continues, it appears we couldn’t have been further from the truth.  

These sales were made up primarily of Porsches, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Ferraris and McLarens; high-end cars that are mostly reserved for the rich and famous.  

Stuart Pearson, BCA COO UK remarketing, said the following: 

 “The luxury and supercar sectors continue to generate a huge amount of interest and BCA uses a range of digital marketing tools to ensure our specialist Top Car buyers have all the information they need.” 

“Data from our newly launched BCA Buyer App shows there was significant demand for these high-value vehicles with exceptional interest for some of the rarer supercars that attracted buyers from all over the UK and Europe. It also underlines the confidence that customers have to buy and sell these high-end vehicles through BCA’s platforms.”

Rolls Royce Celebrate Chinese New Year with Special Ghost, Wraith and Dawn

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Rolls Royce has unveiled brand-new versions of some marques within its fleet. This includes the Ghost, Wraith and Dawn; all of which have been uncovered over the weekend.

The special features

The special editions feature exterior colours of Aurum, Mugello Red and Diamond Black. The vehicles have also been adorned with a Rolls-Royce Year of the Pig badge and Lunar New Year embroidery on the headrests.

All three cars have been hand-crafted in the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has partnered with Rolls-Royce to celebrate New Year. The hotel will offer various packages; one including special access to a red Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV throughout February 8th.

Chauffeuring the rides at the Mandarin Oriental hotels in Boston, Miami and Washington D.C will be Rolls-Royce white-glove product specialists.

There will also be an opportunity for guests to experience a Cullinan in Magma Red with a tan interior. Guests in Boston will have the chance to take a ride in a Scala Red Cullinan with Black and Mugello Red interior.

A luxury experience

Martin Fritsches, President of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Americas said:

“Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and the Mandarin Oriental hotels share two very important things in common. First, a client base with exacting taste for luxury and second the ability to deliver an unparalleled luxury experience. To celebrate, especially with our Chinese clients and those who join them in welcoming a new year, is a pleasure and an honor.”

Rolls-Royce is said to be developing a new version of the famous Ghost. In a recent statement, the brand suggested that the Year of the Pig Ghost could be one of the last in the current format.
