2020 Yamanishi Mulholland
Conquer the Open Road.
The 2020 Yamanishi Mulholland is the latest and most powerful Yamanishi yet.
Engineered in collaboration with Aston Martin, the flagship Mulholland has been designed with the driver in mind. With the Active AWD, 7-speed manual transmission, and the 6.1L V12 putting out a staggering 715 horsepower and 668 ft-lbs of torque, it is one of the most powerful grand tourers on the market.
Don’t expect it to be all power and no comfort, however. With factory heated and air-conditioned bucket seats, leather interior, panoramic moonroof and ambient lighting, and the Yamanishi CyberLink touchscreen display and HUD, you’ll be able to power through the world’s toughest roads, such as California’s Mulholland Drive, in comfort and style.
Prices will begin at $179,399.
Mulholland #1 will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Northeast on June 27, 2019.

*By HP figures and top speed.
A turbocharged version of the 1.8 is what the new C3 deserves if it is to challenge hot compacts such as the I30 N and Civic Type R. While I’m at it, I’d suggest a retuned chassis to go along with the punchier engine, ensuring that it can deal with twisty roads while retaining a supple ride. Fingers crossed the resulting hot version debuts in a few months’ time.
Hornet in the 2019 NYIAS
this year marks Hornet’s first year in the 2019 New York International Auto Show, presenting considerably known models such as the Selena and Sidion.
One model, however, is considerably different from the others, with the help of 21 special individuals from Hornet’s high-tech division, a new age of Hornet may be flourished.
The Hornet Ventuno (21 in Italian) is a project in which creating a “Grand Tourer that would stand out from everyone else,” is then fleshed out to reality.
The upscale Korean grand tourer utilizes the traditional 2+2 layout, with a considerable twist that makes the car different from many other GTs available in the market today; it’s mid-engined as well.
The 21 designers and engineers that lead the development of this car made sure that it would be a car that would come from Hornet, but a Hornet that would be memorable in the eyes of many.
Utilizing an AIGCS courtesy of Zenshi and Fujitsu, modified solely for the car, the digital display allows the driver to know more about the car and utilize tools such as navigation with ease.
Powering the Ventuno is a highly modified version of Hornet’s Talos 2.4L Inline-4 engine, outfitted with a turbocharger, as well as Hornet’s Thor Hybrid System (THS) which utilizes direct drive electric motors on the front wheels, assisting in overall power delivery and stability of the Ventuno. With a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, Combined power output is 480 HP, and the unique grand tourer will hit 60 MPH in less than 4 seconds.
We want to show the world that Hornet is ready to get on a whole new level with the competition, and that we’re not afraid to throw our punches.
How much power does that turbo four make on its own? At any rate, I am not sure that people are going to buy a four-cylinder, mid-engined grand tourer, but I am certain that it will be very fast indeed.
Goldman Motors Official Press Release
What if you can make perfection out of everything?
What if the experience of driving will never be the same again?
And what if we could change the rules, right now?
Meet the all new Goldman Fenix grand tourer.
Since 1987, Goldman strikes to be the best of the best, combining Australia’s style, heritage and racing pedigree with German technology and engineering and a dash of personality. Currently owned by parent company Ursula AG, and headquartered in Fremantle, Western Australia, it’s whole lineup is named after characters from the popular media to set it’s style and differentiates the company from the rest.
Named after the famous video game character from Gears of War, the 2nd generation Goldman Fenix is now here, with an all-new look inspired by supermodels and beauties from around the world.
The new Fenix is equipped with the all-new 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine sourced from Ursula. Generating 631 PS (464 kW) and 652 Nm, it’s wildly more powerful than the V12 from the original model, with the benefits of lower fuel consumption and lighter weight.
Combined with the advanced SelectDrive 7-speed DCT transmission, the all-new Fenix can handle up to 333 km/h with a 3.1 seconds to 100 km/h from standstill.
Inside the car the advanced AWD system and RoadControl Advanced (RCA) active sport suspension helps the car run faster on the straights and steers more responsive while cornering. Active DCT with launch control helps the car easily master any kinds of roads, regardless of condition.
To create the unique driving feel of the car, Goldman and Ursula have teamed up to develop and test the new car for more than 200,000 kilometers just to find the sweet spot for the experience.
The interior is now loaded with the luxury you want, from Nappa leather seats to the unique InfinityRoof to the advanced Ursula Guide voice assistant. And with more than 60 interior colour choices, you can design your very own car depending from your style.
Even important is, we have officially contracted with Turn 10 Studios, the creators of the popular Forza Motorsport series to create our very own software for the touchscreen multi-function display. The all-new multi-function display provides the driver to easily view and customize from a choice of more than 40 modes for ordinary driving, track days and anything else.
With an all-new carbon fiber monocoque chassis the new Fenix is much lighter than before. Besides, we have focused more on quality and design to build the car, just to let it’s would-be owners experience the feeling in an whole new level.
(Which means to give us another excuse to justify it’s 2000+ kg weight)
With that said the new Fenix will be produced solely by a specialized team consists of 40 expert builders selected by harsh tests and stringent quality controls, to maintain the car’s quality and exclusivity. All cars will only be produced in Goldman’s all-new facility in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Buyers of the car can have an option to have their car collected directly from the factory, while having a guided tour of the history, production in the facility, accompanied with meals in a specialized VIP restaurant serving Australian delights.
The all-new Fenix will be showcased in NYIAS in New York City, and also the Goldman Museum located in Perth, Australia for a limited time. We don’t have the price yet but orders for the car starts now.

Melbourne is the state capital of Victoria, for god’s sake!
Anyway, the Fenix looks like it could rival outright supercars such as the 600LT and Huracan Evo for thrust, and beat them on usability is well.

Martlet, Satsunai, and Aeros at NYIAS 2019
Powered by a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 returning 213 horsepower at 6100 RPM, 228 lb-ft of torque at 2800 RPM, and 25.4 average MPG, Martlet’s new Cormorant takes personal luxury to new levels of fuel efficiency for its size while still being able to deliver a reasonable 0-60 time of under nine seconds.
yeah it’s pretty much a car for old people
Named for a scenic town in Satsunai’s native Hokkaido known for its lush rolling hills, the Satsunai Biei is a grand tourer designed to eat up miles in comfort and speed. Its 6.0L naturally aspirated V8 delivers 468 horsepower at 6700 RPM and 418 lb-ft of torque at 4900 RPM, dispatching 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and going on to a governed top speed of 186 MPH. However, the Biei still gets 26.1 average MPG at cruising speeds.
Aeros’ newly redesigned crossover uses a variant of their 3L I5 that has been in production since 2011. Nevertheless, it produces a respectable 237 horsepower at 5500 RPM and 279 lb-ft of torque from 2300-4200 RPM. Thanks to its 7-speed automatic it is able to return 29.7 mixed MPG and tow 3500 pounds with this engine, though Aeros plans to make adjustments to improve the 9.66-second 0-60 time before the 2020 Antioch goes on sale this fall.
