Dutch custom builder RemetzCar has released new images and a video of its newly finished Tesla Model S shooting brake, which reportedly will make its debut next month in the Netherlands.
Remember that Tesla Model S shooting brake we told you about a few months ago? No, not that Dutch-customizer version, which has yet to see the light of day, so far as we can tell. We're talking about the wagonized version from British outfit Qwest Norfolk. The finished version was just featured in a new episode of U.K. YouTube show Fully Charged.
Just 177 examples, each individually numbered, will be produced globally.

For most people, buying a new Ferrari – heck, even a used one – would be a special occasion all on its own, not to mention a rare privilege. But to make the experience all the more special, the Prancing Horse marque offers its Tailor-Made personalization program. The service just reached the Asia-Pacific region for the first time with the new Tailor-Made Centre in Shanghai, and to mark its inauguration, Ferrari has revealed two new special editions – both based on V12 GTs and i
Special editions have proven themselves a great way for high-end automakers to get a little bit more for their wares, but they appear to be gradually being taken over by personalization programs that allow customers to order their exotic new wheels just as they want them. After all, what's the point in ordering a special color scheme someone else has chosen when you can choose it yourself, with special wheels and interior upholstery to match?
New Tesla or condo? That's one question you may come up with when you see this video from T Sportline that shows a Model S with enough extras to jack its price up to $205,820. Al & Ed's Autosound of West Hollywood, CA, which has a history of such things, did the honors.
It used to be that if you wanted a luxury SUV, there was only one name that you needed to know, and that was Range Rover. These days, of course, the market is flush with luxed-out sport-utes and crossovers, but don't think that Land Rover is about to take it all lying down. No, Jaguar Land Rover is fully intent on making the most luxurious SUVs on the market.
There's no single silver bullet that will cure all that ails the Lincoln brand, and Ford knows that just as surely as we do. Coming out with exciting new models like the well-received MKC crossover counts as several steps in the right direction, assuming of course that the production version is as appealing as the concept just shown at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, but more is needed. According to Jim Farley, executive vice president of Lincoln, one more trick may be "mass customization."
Customization programs are nothing new in the auto industry. For a fee, they offer a chance to work directly with the manufacturer to create a one-of-a-kind vehicle for the customer. These programs, however, are usually offered by makers of the most exotic, expensive and exclusive vehicles, like Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Porsche. It's not often that a manufacturer of, shall we say, a more humble stature, offers this type of vehicle personalization. Nevertheless, that's exactly what Fiat is doing
Good things come to those who wait. Or so the saying goes, at least. And while that may not seem like something you'd associate with performance automobiles like Ferraris, maybe it should. Because while some will pay a premium to get a Ferrari – any Ferrari – right away, others are willing to wait to get theirs just the way they want it. And when we say 'just the way they want it', we mean just the way they want it.
McLaren Special Operations may sound like a new unit of special forces in the British military, but is, in fact, actually the new client customization division of the supercar manufacturer behind the MP4-12C. We first got wind of the new service at Pebble Beach where it was presented, one year after the North American debut of the car itself, but now McLaren has unleashed more details and a full batch of photos.
