fragment design Range Rover Velar Teaser - 3869676
Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara has revealed that he and his team at fragment design will be taking a lead role in designing the latest model of the Range Rover Velar. The British automobile maker announced on YouTube that it will be hosting a special event in Tokyo to show off the new model on July 11. With not much information given out in the video, it remains unclear as to how the fragment design model will differ from the Velar’s base model, which has only been on the market since March.
While it may come as a surprise to some, this isn’t the first time Land Rover has collaborated with someone outside of the automobile business. Just last month, the company unveiled a special edition watch made in partnership with Zenith to commemorate the release of the Range Rover Velar.

Rolls Royce Dawn Black Badge - 3868036                                  
  • Rolls-Royce now offers a Black Badge variant of its popular Dawn convertible, revealed at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The new semi-performance drop-top delivers more power and dynamic inputs. The 6.6 liter, the twin-turbocharged V12 engine remains. However, horsepower is up 30 to 593 ponies. Similar to other Black Badges like the Wraith and Ghost, the transmission, steering, and throttle have all been revised and massaged for a sportier feel; it also features a new active exhaust paired with brakes that expand by 1 inch compared to the standard vehicle.
    Royce boasts the car is bathed in a deep and intense shade of black — with multiple layers of paint and lacquer having been applied and hand-polished for its solid paint color. All chrome fittings are now darkened, including the Spirit of Ecstasy, complementing the black canvas roof and black leather tonneau cover. The interior is a mix of carbon fiber, ebony, and black leather surfaces, contrasted by an orange leather trim.
    Considering the regular Dawn starts around $340,000, it’s speculated the price tag of the Black Badge edition will be closer to the $400,000 mark. Watch the video below showcasing the vehicle.

  • Ralf Hütter, the founder of music group Kraftwerk has teamed up with Roman Arnold and German bicycle company Canyon for an extremely limited cycle. Ralf started cycling in the early ’80s and even tried to get his band to embrace the sport and vibes with a single titled “Tour de France” that samples bicycle chain and gear sounds. Arnold grew up partying to the music from Kraftwerk and liked the idea of integrating the two — cycling and German electronica — so a seamless partnership was formed. The Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk was born from the union and is built on a Grand Tour-winning frame with a hand-placed geometric reflective finish.
    Arnold had this to say about the partnership, “Kraftwerk and cycling have a special and unique connection, their music and all that they do, has inspired our work at Canyon in so many ways across the years.” Due to how much time it takes to make the bikes, only 21 will be available on the Canyon website.
