    New Aston Martin DBX and news from the LA Auto Show ...

    Famous for their sports cars, British manufacturer Aston Martin have now revealed the long awaited DBX Sports Utility Vehicle. Instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin, it is built on a bonded aluminium monocoque and features a 543 bhp version of the now familiar twin-turbo V8. Through a nine-speed automatic gearbox, this four-litre engine drives all four wheels. Priced at 158,000 in Great Britain, the DBX is expected to arrive at the first customers in the second quarter of 2020.
    One of the most spectacular cars unveiled at this week's Los Angeles Auto Show is this Karma SC2 Concept. The two-seater coupe has a dramatic exterior with a pair of massive scissor doors but it is what is underneath the bodywork that makes the car particularly interesting. The SC2's all-electric drivetrain is good 1,100 bhp and a mind-boggling 14,000 Nm of torque at peak power.
    Another all-electric machine to break cover in LA is the Sportback version of the recently introduced Audi e-tron. The four door 'coupe' is presumably aimed at customers who would like an e-tron but don't particularly care for the additional luggage space a conventional SUV body offers. Rival BMW are also ramping up their electric offerings and this week offered a first glimpse of the upcoming i4. The all-electric machine can be fitted with a rear-mounted motor that is good for 523 bhp.
    An altogether more conventional machine that grabbed headlines in LA is the Lexus LC 500 Convertible. Like the highly acclaimed coupe, the drop-top LC 500 features a naturally aspirated V8, which in this application is good for 471 horses, all of which are sent to the rear wheels.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Is the DBX just a coachbuilt GLE63 AMG?
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!
