2018 Genesis G90 5.0 V8 RWD – Road Test Review

Here’s the secret in full-size limos from the premium brands: they are all pretty splendid to drive and have in your life. The speed and road presence alone of driving a land-yacht of a vehicle is enough to earn serious respect on the road. And they all class up a driveway like nobody’s business. The new class is all turbocharged and uber-packed with tech — to the point where even the new LS500 crosses the $100k threshold in a huge hurry. Does the new G90 really run with the big dogs like the S550, 740i and A8L in the fastlanes …

Marketplace Comparisons – 2017 Genesis G90 Ultimate (RWD) – By Carl Malek

Remember when the flagship luxury car segment used to be solely defined by the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series, and the Audi A8? Granted, there were also entries like the Jaguar XJ, Maserati Quattroporte, as well as the Lexus LS, but each of these entries only offered a small slice of the broader all round package that is demanded by elite buyers. The past few years have seen an explosion of choices with these familiar names being joined by new entries such as the Volvo S90, Lincoln Continental, Cadillac CT6, and the subject of this installment of Marketplace Comparisons, the 2017 …

3.4s, 186MPH 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 Scores Full Drivetrain Makeover

The revised S-Class is out today in Shanghai and the S63 is leading the pack!  The stunning musclecar of a limo gains a new engine, new wet-clutch-launch nine speed automatic and a newly engaging AWD system.  Power is up about to 603 ponies for the S63, while the S65 LWB model sticks at 621HP. The name of the game for the new S63 is POWER.  The 3.4-second number is official for the USA run to 60-mph and is virtually fightin’ words versus Audi and BMW.  How did AMG get the time down even lower? The autobox now has a clever …

Geneva Debuts – 2016 Volvo XC90 EXCELLENCE – Quad-Throne PHEV Limo for Davos Crowd

  Not just Rangies… but S-Classes and Audi A8’s too! The superlux livery market just found a new favorite: the XC90 T8 Excellence. Plugin-hybrid to ease your (guilty) conscience?  Check. SUV-easy entry and exit, plus jumbo cargo bay?  Check. Individual, 787-first-class seats in back with a full-length console and nap-ready headrests? Check. 4×4 grip for ski holidays or slushy commutes home?  Check. Subtle to the point of almost disappearing behind the bright window-edges and deep-tinted glass all around?  Check. The new XC90 Excellence certainly looks great on paper as the next favorite limousine for the Davos crowd. The Excellence order …

2016 Mercedes-Maybach PULLMAN Limo 2

2016 Mercedes-Maybach PULLMAN Limo – Noblesse Oblige

Updated 2.2.16 with 30 new photos from Dubai  Royals have it so tough. Every step?  An exhausting endeavor. Even waving to their subjects when en route between photo-ops can be emotionally and physically draining for this sensitive group. They are constantly pulled one way or another, with no time to just relax and mellow out. I mean, it is Gstaad skiing this week and then RIGHT to St. Barts for some beach thing. No break. Double vacations can be so tiring, right? Just getting from private chalet to private jet can be a taxing experience. These poor, pampered beings are never …
