Jaguar Land Rover 集團近幾年積極擴張其 SUV 休旅陣線,尤其 Land Rover 品牌新車皆提供 Terrain Response 全地形反應系統,讓旗下車款擁有不俗的越野能力。不過近期 JLR 集團就在美國控告 Volkswagen 集團侵害其 Terrain Response 越野模式系統專利,要求美國國際貿易委員會(United States International Trade Commission; USITC),禁止 Volkswagen 集團進口包含 Audi Q5、Lamborghini Urus、Porsche Cayenne、Volkswagen Tiguan 等搭載越野行車模式的 SUV 休旅車款至美國市場。

近期 JLR 集團在美國控告 Volkswagen 集團侵害其 Terrain Response 越野模式專利,要求禁止 Volkswagen 集團進口包含 Audi Q5、Lamborghini Urus、Porsche Cayenne、Volkswagen Tiguan 等車款至美國。

Land Rover 品牌近幾年新車上相當標誌性的 Terrain Response 全地形反應,最早是於 2005 年發表的 Discovery 3 首次搭載其初代系統,當時原廠強調其是經過原廠長達 4 年的研發時間開發而成,目標就是讓駕駛能夠透過行車模式系統的自動判斷或切換,達到出色的越野、全地形對應能力,也不像過去傳統四輪傳動越野車款需要高度的越野技巧去操作加力箱等機械。

而現行升級過後的第 2 代 Terrain Response 2 系統,則是於 2013 年推出,依各車系的產品屬性不同,可依序提供包含「賽道」、「ECO 省油」、「舒適」、「草地/礫石/雪地」、「泥濘地/車轍地」、「沙地」、「岩石爬行」、「涉水」、「自動」、「客製化」等行車模式,讓品牌車款輕鬆擁有相當強悍的越野表現。

現行升級過後的第 2 代 Terrain Response 2 系統,最早是於 2013 年推出。以全新世代 Defender 為例,其搭載的 Terrain Response 2 系統,就擁有「ECO 省油」、「舒適」、「草地/礫石/雪地」、「泥濘地/車轍地」、「沙地」、「岩石爬行」、「涉水」、「自動」、「客製化」等模式。

實際上 Land Rover 品牌也針對 Terrain Response 2 系統在多國申請了不少的專利,不過近期 Jaguar Land Rover 集團在美國市場卻和 Volkswagen 集團在法律戰上針鋒相對。

最主要是 JLR 認為 Volkswagen 集團旗下品牌在美國販售的車款,包含 Audi 的 A6 Allroad、Q5、Q7、Q8、電動車 e-tron,Lamborghini 的 Urus 休旅車,Porsche 的 Cayenne,還有 Volkswagen 的 Tiguan 等車款的行車模式,皆擁有包含「Mud 泥濘地/車轍地」、「Sand 沙地」等類似 JLR Terrain Response 2 系統專利的行車模式,因此 JLR 便在近期向美國國際貿易委員會(United States International Trade Commission; USITC),申請要求禁止 Volkswagen 集團將上述搭載侵犯專利的 SUV 車款進口至美國。

JLR 集團會有這樣的舉措,最主要是美國國際貿易委員會並不能對 Volkswagen 集團進行罰鍰,但卻能禁止侵權新車的進口。而 JLR 集團同時間也向紐約州、德拉瓦州(Delaware)兩處的聯邦地方法院提起訴訟,控告 Volkswagen 集團侵害其 Terrain Response 2 系統的專利。

而事實上這也不是 JLR 集團第一次在美國控告 Volkswagen 集團侵權。早在 2018 年 JLR 集團就控告 Volkswagen 集團旗下的 Bentley,其在品牌 SUV 車款 Bentayga 上搭載的 Drive Dynamics System 行車模式,也被 JLR 集團指控侵害 Terrain Response 2 系統專利。雖然當時 Bentley 同步向地方法院、美國專利局申請 JLR 集團的專利無效,但相關舉措未果,因此 JLR 控告 Bentley 的訴訟初審將於 2021 年 2 月展開。

For a car whose production is capped at 500 units, the Bugatti Chiron has already spawned a number of special editions. The latest such model is called the ‘Les Legendes du Ciel’ (Legends of the Sky/Heaven) and is an homage to famous racing drivers from the last century, most of whom were former flying aces.

Based on the Chiron Sport and capped at 20 units, each one priced at €2.88 million (equal to $3.4 million), excluding tax, the limited edition model boasts exclusive touches inside and out and will enter production towards the end of the year, with deliveries likely set for early 2021.

“Bugatti has had close associations with aviation since the company was established more than 110 years ago. Many successful Bugatti racing drivers, such as Albert Divo, Robert Benoist and Bartolomeo ‘Meo’ Costantini, flew for the French Air Force, the French aviator legend Roland Garros privately drove a Bugatti Type 18 to be as fast on the road as in the air,” said President Stephan Winkelmann. “It is therefore almost an obligation for us today to pay tribute to the legends of that time and dedicate a special edition to them.”

The Alsace hypercar is finished in Gris Serpent, a shade inspired by the exterior color of 1920s aircraft. The body is adorned with a white gloss center stripe, which runs from the bonnet to the rear wing, the blue, white and red colors of the French flag on the front area of the carbon fiber sills and a special logo on the front fenders. The horseshoe grille sports a glossy black finish while the Inconel exhaust trim cover and black exposed carbon fiber dominate the back end.

Greeting users upon opening the doors are the bespoke entry sills. The ‘Les Legendes du Ciel’ logo is projected onto the ground, and once inside, they will see the Gaucho leather, reminiscent of the natural leather found inside aircraft from the early 1900s. The aluminum trim provides a contrast and is joined by an aluminum inlay with the ‘Les Legendes du Ciel’ logo on the headrests and the special edition numbering.

The final highlight of the cockpit is a hand-sketched racing scene between a Bugatti Type 13 and a Nieuport 17 aircraft, built from 1916 and popular due to its maneuverability, speed and reliability. The comfort seats and glass roof are available as options.

The black exposed carbon fiber engine cover rests on top of the quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16, which still pumps out 1,500 PS (1,479 HP / 1,103 kW) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque, rocketing the Chiron Sport up to a top speed that is electronically limited at 420 km/h (261 mph).

Named after the Mayan god of wind, the Huracan has been around since 2014, but to be fair, it has been constantly upgraded ever since.

The changes have not only been cosmetic, but technical too. Thankfully, and in contrast to rivals who have adopted forced induction, Lamborghini kept the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10, which is an absolute marvel and probably the last of its kind.

In the most affordable version, namely the Huracan Evo RWD, it develops 602 HP (610 PS / 449 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque. As its name implies, it drives only the rear wheels, via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It is 30 HP (30 PS / 22 kW) and 30 lb-ft (40 Nm) less powerful than the AWD variant and 73 lbs (33 kg) lighter too; nevertheless, it does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and maxes out at 202 mph (325 km/h).

The Huracan Evo RWD stays planted through corners, stops instantly with the optional carbon ceramic brakes (although the standard steel ones are not bad either), the steering has some weight to it and it will kick its tail back in shortly after kicking it out.

So, in as few words as possible, the baby Lambo could very well be the only fun car you’ll ever need. It can be used on a daily basis too, and even on long journeys, as the seats are quite comfortable and the dampers do absorb most bumps on the road in the ‘Strada’ driving mode.

However, there are a few letdowns to it, and we’re not talking about the fact that it doesn’t feature all-wheel drive or that the frunk is very tiny. But we’ll let Carfection’s Henry Catchpole, who got behind the wheel of an example equipped with £53,000 (equal to $70,379) worth of options, including the £9,500 ($12,615) paint finish, explain the rest.
