Elation Hypercars’ Freedom is starting to take shape, in the digital world at least, as the EV startup has released renderings of its first prototype, the Dogo 001.

Named after the Dogo Argentino, a South American dog breed known for its strength that is often used in big-game hunting, it previews the upcoming fully functional prototype which will enter the testing phase next year.

The final production model is planned to debut at the 2022 Geneva Motor Show, with carbon fiber bodywork, a carbon-kevlar monocoque and an all-electric powertrain. The base variant is understood to use three electric motors for a total output of 1,427 HP and 1,062 lb-ft (1,440 Nm) of torque, while clients can upgrade if they so wish to an even more powerful model with an extra motor and 1,903 HP.

Elation has announced that the Freedom will be able to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 1.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 260 mph (418 km/h). Two battery units, with capacities of 100 and 120 kWh, will give it a range of approximately 300-400 miles (483-644 km).

An ICE-powered version of the hypercar, the Freedom Iconic Collection, will join the lineup with a 5.2-liter V10 that makes 750 HP at 8,500 rpm and is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration is estimated to take 2.5 seconds, and top speed will be electronically limited to 240 mph (386 km/h).

With production of a single example said to take over 4,000 hours, Elation plans to make 25 units of the Freedom each year. Pricing for the electric model will start at $2 million, whereas the ICE variant will cost at least $2.3 million.

Rinspeed has produced some of the most bizarre concept cars ever conceived and the Bedouin is one of the most intriguing.

First presented to the world at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2003, the Rinspeed Bedouin is based on a 996-generation Porsche 911 and received a host of bizarre exterior and interior modifications. Most notably, it can morph into a pickup truck in a matter of seconds.

The rear of Rinspeed’s concept sports a unique roofline that folds away and turns the rear luggage compartment into a pickup truck-esque bed. The operation of this roof is powered by two small electric motors while the tailgate itself is also electrically-operated and extends out by up to 45 cm.

This isn’t the only interesting aspect of the car. In a bid to ensure the Bedouin turned as many heads in Geneva as possible, Rinspeed gave it a striking chameleon paint job, jacked up the ride height by 15 cm, and fitted a set of high-profile tires.

Comprehensive modifications were also made to the cabin, as this video from Barcroft Cars reveals. For example, new leather adorns the seats, transmission tunnel, dashboard, and parts of the door panels. Rinspeed also placed thousands of individual crystals on the door panels to give the concept some added bling. As if these mods weren’t enough, Rinspeed also chopped off the top section of the steering wheel and replaced it with two Porsche gear knobs.

The 2021 Honda Civic Type R has finally touched down in Australia sporting the same updates as in other markets.

One of the key upgrades made to the 2021 Civic Type R is new software for the Adaptive Damper System that evaluates road conditions ten times faster than before, resulting in improved damper reactions for better handling and ride quality. Additionally, the rear bushings for the lower B-arm have been stiffened to provide an eight per cent improvement in lateral loads and the front features new compliance bushings and new lower-friction ball joints that trigger sharper steering feel.

Honda’s engineers have also improved braking performance with the fitment of new two-piece floating front brake discs and brake pads with a more fade-resistant pad material.

Powering the class-leading hot hatch is a 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder that pumps out 306 hp (228 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. While these figures are the same as previous model years, the 2021 model’s larger grille decreases coolant temperature by up to 10 degrees Celsius in high-demand situations, such as track days. Coupled to this engine is a six-speed manual transmission with a rev-matching function and a new teardrop-style gear knob.

New for 2021 is an Active Sound Control feature that enhances the engine note during Sport and +R modes. The hot hatch also launches with the new Honda LogR performance datalogger that combines the car’s onboard computer and sensors with a smartphone application to help drivers monitor and record various performance parameters.

In addition to receiving a new gear knob, the cabin also includes an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. The Racing Blue paint pictured is also a new addition to the range and joins Rally Red, Crystal Black and Championship White.

Aussie pricing for the 2021 Civic Type R starts at AU$54,990 (US$41,797) before on-road costs and delivery fees, representing a AU$3,000 (US$2,280) price hike over the outgoing model.
