With the new generation Note finally up for grabs in Japan, Nissan is now getting ready to start rolling out an all-wheel drive variant of the compact car for the local market.

The Note e-Power AWD features the brand’s e-Power electrified powertrain with two electric motors, one on each axle, which results in improved grip on slippery surfaces, increased output over the two-wheel drive model and better overall performance.

Unlike a conventional hybrid, where both the engine and the electric motor power the wheels, the HR12DE 1.2-liter naturally aspirated three-cylinder acts solely as a range extender to recharge the battery. The car also features regenerative braking that recuperates the energy during deceleration and stores it in the battery for later use.

Nissan has yet to fully detail the Note e-Power AWD lineup, but it will launch with all the bells and whistles as its two-wheel sibling, including the infotainment system and digital instrument cluster and a selection of driver assistance gear. Nonetheless, they did disclose that it will be available in two grades, the S Four and the X Four. Pricing will start at 2,288,000 yen ($22,106) and 2,445,300 yen ($23,626) respectively.

As for the 2021 Note 2WD that was unveiled last month, it went on sale today in Japan and is available in three trim levels. The range kicks off with the base S, priced at 2,029,500 yen ($19,609), while the mid-spec F and the top-of-the-line X are priced from 2,054,800 yen ($19,853) and 2,186,800 yen ($21,128) respectively.

Trimmed in black leather, the cockpit also features black trim, chrome accents and high-end stitching in the door cards. Elsewhere, the flagship Toyota SUV is equipped with power adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, 9-inch touchscreen display, satellite navigation system, rear-seat entertainment with DVD player, premium audio and keyless entry and go. The Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistance items is also included, bringing with it active cruise control, automatic high beams, pre-collision safety system with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and others.

Powering the new special edition Land Cruiser is the 4.5-liter V8 bi-turbo diesel engine. It pumps out 200 kW (272 PS / 268 HP) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift function and low-range ratios. The Multi-Terrain Select enhances its driving capability off the beaten path, while the fully independent suspension ensures a comfortable ride on the asphalt.

“As Australia’s best-selling upper-large SUV, there is no shortage of Land Cruisers out there and the new Horizon special edition offers customers an enhanced visually distinctive appeal”, said Toyota Australia’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Sean Hanley. “With its bespoke styling and premium ambience, the Horizon special edition is equally at home for an elegant night out in the city as it is crossing the Simpson desert.”

Bugatti has partnered again with luxury watchmaker Jacob & Co. to produce a new limited edition of their already-exclusive Chiron Tourbillon timepiece.

The timepiece draws influence from their Chiron hypercar, and parts inspired by the actual car can be seen throughout. For instance, the watch features a functioning crankshaft and pistons in its design, mimicking the iconic sixteen-cylinder Bugatti engine in great detail.

Flanking that mechanism is a pair of “turbochargers” that spin in conjunction with the “engine’s” motion, providing a true spectacle to onlookers. The whole powertrain assembly is held in place by 4 Chiron-inspired shock absorbers, which means it is actually floating inside the case and can be seen moving slightly up and down while active.

In addition to all the car-inspired details, the watch features a stunningly-intricate, 578-piece movement combining both car and watch design, powered by a flying tourbillon movement inclined at 30 degrees.

Four new limited editions of the Chiron Tourbillon are available, with one having an alternately-colored variant. There is Rose Gold, Rose Gold with diamonds, White Gold and Sapphire Crystal, with the latter also available in blue.

The Rose Gold is limited to 72 examples and is made of 18-karat rose gold with an 18-karat rose gold open caseback. Its diamond-encrusted counterpart is limited to just 52 examples and is set with white baguette diamonds. Both have a black rubber strap, with the “regular” one featuring a black DLC titanium and 18-karat rose gold buckle clasp, and the diamond-encrusted example featuring an 18-karat rose gold buckle clasp decorated with white diamonds.

As its name implies, the White Gold is made of 18-karat white gold with an 18-karat white gold open caseback, and sports 391 individual black and white diamonds. It has a rubber strap with an 18-karat white gold buckle clasp set adorned with 18 white diamonds.

Finally, the Sapphire Crystal is made from a solid block of sapphire with a sapphire crystal caseback, and its alternately colored variant is practically the same, only colored blue instead of silver. Both feature a rubber strap secured by a titanium buckle clasp.

There’s no word on pricing, but given that the “regular” Chiron Tourbillon, which is limited to 250 pieces, costs $280,000, these should have a similar, or more likely even higher, price tag.
