Luxury & Exotic Dealer Network Expands to SoCal

17478820505_95f1c6c6fa_k

RITEDRIVE is an online vehicle marketing platform that allows qualified dealers and private party individuals to buy and sell luxury and exotic vehicles. We’re excited to announce that Southern California represents our next market expansion to the west coast.

RITEDRIVE currently has over 200 active luxury and exotic car dealers and over a thousand qualified private party members that buy, sell, and trade within the community.

Learn more about how to Become a Dealer or Contact Us today via email or phone (949) 204-0330 with any questions you may have.

One of the primary benefits of listing on RITEDRIVE is the ability for dealer members to see wholesale pricing on aging dealership inventory. This pricing frequently reflects a solid discount and allows dealers to save on their luxury car purchase by shopping inventory marked with wholesale pricing that is unavailable on any other website. This offers the benefit of allowing dealers to use this platform as an auction alternative.

The founder of RITEDRIVE has more than 20 years’ experience selling high-end vehicles across the US as well as internationally. RITEDRIVE was created to make deals and insider information readily available to an exclusive community.

“RITEDRIVE is about connection and relationships between buyers and sellers in the luxury marketplace. We’ve found that our active dealers are motivated to establish a long term relationship with a private party buyer, rather than liquidating by shipping inventory to the auction.

Being in the luxury and exotic car space for over 20 years I discovered eBay Motors back in 2000. This was well before buying a car ‘sight unseen’ was reality. The luxury and exotic dealer community needs a trading platform for wholesale and retail that keeps them segregated from the digital melting pot that we are now experiencing as a selling community with autotrader, cars.com, and ebay. A Ferrari 458 with 5k miles does not belong next to a Kia Sorento.”

As of September 2015, RITEDRIVE has targeted the Southern California market. We’re aggressively ramping up marketing in this region. We’re looking to work with local dealers and rapidly grow the inventory in Orange County, San Diego, and L.A. due to the area’s strong automotive enthusiast communities, and reputed affinity for high-end vehicles.

In efforts to grow the network, we are offering exclusive pricing for a select group of dealers with the inventory and reputation that belongs in our community.

We are looking for dealers that want 3 to 5 more car deals per month. The time is now for a change in digital automotive marketing. Here is your solution.

Aston Martin teamed up with Italian design house Zagato to develop a new custom creation based on its Vanquish supercar. The result is the stunning Vanquish Zagato which will be on display this weekend at the 2016 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

We’ve just driven Rolls-Royce’s Dawn convertible. It’s soon to be the only convertible in Rolls-Royce’s lineup but fortunately it’s the type of car that’s extremely hard to fault.

A new generation of the Jeep Wrangler bows next year and judging from spy shots posted today it will look a lot like the current JK model. The spy shots show the four-door Wrangler Unlimited but there are also the 2-door Wrangler and a new pickup in the works.

You’ll find all of these stories and more in today’s car news, right here at Motor Authority.

BMW sued over i3’s extended-range electric powertrain

2014 BMW i3 REx, Catskill Mountains, New York, Oct 2014

2014 BMW i3 REx, Catskill Mountains, New York, Oct 2014

BMW has been hit with a class action lawsuit regarding a potential issue afflicting the extended-range version of the automaker’s i3 electric car.

According to the suit, which was filed in a District Court in Los Angeles last week, the extended-range i3, known as the i3 REx, can reduce power to unsafe levels without warning. Here’s what the suit, filed by MLG Automotive Law, has to say:

“If the car is under any kind of significant load (such as going up a hill, or loaded with passengers), the speed of the car will dramatically decrease as the battery charge diminishes.

“The lawsuit alleges that this can result in the car slowing to speeds of 45 miles per hour on the freeway, without warning.”

The reduced acceleration under high-stress, low-charge situations is a problem High Gear Media staff have experienced. The 34-horsepower 2-cylinder range extender (shown above) is simply not powerful enough to maintain the car’s performance in all situations when the battery is depleted.

The cause is due to the i3 REx’s programming that requires it to exhaust essentially all of its battery capacity before the range extender switches on. According to Green Car Reports, this is so the car can qualify as a battery-electric vehicle (BEVx) under California zero-emission vehicle rules.

BMW updated the i3 REx with a software tweak last year. The update included a warning that flashes onto the car’s dash about potentially reduced performance when the car’s battery drops to 2 percent.

MLG Automotive Law says its goal with the suit is for BMW to halt the sale of i3s until they, as well as all existing cars, are “repaired at BMW’s expense.” MLG is also asking for compensation from BMW for each owner.

Mercedes Short Film Introduces Mobility on Land, Water and in the Air

In a new short film, Mercedes celebrates the world premiere of their luxury motor yacht against the picturesque backdrop of the south of France. The Mediterranean coastline offers the perfect, luxury setting for the movie’s protagonists, which include the Arrow460-Granturismo the S-Class Cabriolet and the H145 Mercedes-Benz Style helicopter.

The film illustrates Gottlieb Daimler’s “dream of mobility with the Mercedes star in the three dimensions of land, water and air,” according to a company press release. In addition, these three models were chosen because they “represent the brand’s sensual pure design as well as high standards in terms of luxury, aesthetics and technological perfection,” as stated in the press release.

Tupac's 1996 Hummer H1 sells for $337,000

]]>

Shattering pre-sale estimates, a 20-year-old Hummer H1 once owned by slain rapper Tupac Shakur sold recently for $337,114 at auction. That price represents a roughly 700 percent increase over what an H1 not owned by the rapper would sell for today.

RR Auctions, which sold off the Hummer for its current owner, didn’t say who the top bidder was, other than that the person is from the Midwestern United States and that they want their identity to remain confidential.

DON’T MISS: What if your next Uber driver picked you up in a Bugatti?

As such, it is not clear just what is next for the Hummer. It may remain in private, or it may be displayed.

“It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap’s true lyrical giants,” said Robert Livingston, Executive Vice President of RR Auction, in a release issued to the media. “We are thrilled at the price achieved and with the continued success of our specialty themed auctions.”

MUST SEE: Car flies through roundabout after driver falls asleep at wheel

The 1996 Hummer was commissioned by Tupac just a few months before he was shot outside a boxing match in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although modest by modern customizing standards, the Hummer boasted a tricked-out interior of leather and burl wood, plus a Clarion audio system with a 12-disc CD changer. That was high-tech back in 1996, and we can only imagine what tunes Tupac pulled up while he was still alive.

After Tupac died, the H1 passed through several owners, but it only shows 10,100 miles on its odometer.

Aston Martin Reveals Remarkable Vanquish Zagato Concept

If you find yourself near Lake Como this weekend, it would be worth your while to stop by the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Aside from the scenic venue, Aston Martin will be pulling back the curtain on the new Vanquish Zagato Concept. While it may be impossible to improve upon perfection, Zagato has a knack for building the world’s most beautiful cars. The famed Italian styling house is known for low volume coachbuilding, which means their creations are regularly sought after by collectors.

aston-martin-reveals-remarkable-vanquish-zagato-concept-astonmartinvanquishzagatoconcept02resized

The new Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Concept marks the fifth collaboration between England and Italy, and the four previous builds have been mainstays of our magazine since 1985. One day we will gather together classic Zagato bodied cars for a Throwback Thursday, but for now lets dive into the details of this stunning supercar. Starting with a solid foundation of a 2016 Vanquish, Andrea Zagato and his team did away with several of the body seams and replaced them with one-piece carbon fiber panels.

aston-martin-reveals-remarkable-vanquish-zagato-concept-astonmartinvanquishzagatoconcept03resized

“We pride ourselves on our strong partnership and the creation of the Vanquish Zagato Concept was a true shared experience,” says Zagato’s CEO, Andrea Zagato, “it represents the essence of an important design relationship that dates back over fifty years.”

aston-martin-reveals-remarkable-vanquish-zagato-concept-astonmartinvanquishzagatoconcept04resized

Our favorite feature of this concept is the roof. The double bubble design slopes down quickly from the cockpit to make the greenhouse appear smaller. Carbon fiber rocker panels and diffusers give the body a ready to race appearance.

aston-martin-reveals-remarkable-vanquish-zagato-concept-astonmartinvanquishzagatoconcept05resized

Italian style and attention to detail permeate the interior. Anodized bronze and aniline leather along with Zagato’s trademark Z emblems are just a few of the aesthetic upgrades. Captivating details can be found everywhere you look; so if you find yourself staring for hours don’t say we didn’t warn you. Stay tuned to Autofluence for more coverage of this weekend’s events.

Unbelievable Lamborghini Huracan and Dodge Viper Drag Race Finish

The Dodge Viper and Lamborghini Huracan are two completely different V10-powered machines. One is a new Italian sports car powered by a 5.2-liter V10 that looks like a speeding rocket, even when it’s at a standstill. On the other hand, you have a mean machine straight out of the U.S.A. with a massive 8.4-liter V10 under the hood. One big difference is the Huracan has its V10 in the back, while the Viper’s is installed in the front.

With both of these cars having V10s, how do they stack up against each other in a half-mile drag race? That’s where a video from TheBayAreaRacing YouTube Channel comes in. The video stars both the Viper and Huracan in a heated battle down a drag strip to determine which is faster. America vs. Italy: who wins?

Check the video below to see that there’s more to this comparison than just raw power.

Mahindra KUV100: An SUV for the Future Types

Mahindra brand of India has been busy creating concepts for their own burgeoning market, including the KUV100 SUV, their entry into the hatchback crossover arena. The company has been slinging images of the newbie around Mumbai and intends to take on competitors like the Ford Figo, Hyundai Grand i10 and Maruti Suzuki WagonR.

The Mahindra KUV100 SUV will be offered in both diesel and standard petrol, with no mention of an electric or hybrid offering just yet. The brand launched the TUV300 earlier in the year, which looks very much like an Indian version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Because the swanky new KUV100 is still a concept, it simply looks cooler than its predecessor, but it may appear quite similar in production form—a perhaps smaller version of it. That said, it is important for potential buyers to be realistic about what a concept vehicle is actually going to look like when it hits the market. Automakers spend countless hours and dollars drumming up love for their new offerings– but by the time the actual product emerges, too many hands have had their way and it is often a disappointment in comparison to its promise.

The Mahindra KUV100 is pronounced “One double Oh” and will be rolling out over the next few months as the major auto shows begin to occur. The SUV concept was developed in the company’s own facility in Chennai adhering to global standards and regulations, including those pesky emissions. According to director Pawan Goenka of Mahindra (which is actually named Mahindra & Mahindra, like an egotistical law firm): “We are all set to create a new segment with the launch of the KUV100 which also marks our foray into ground up petrol engines. An ambitious project from the very start, the KUV100, is all set to carve its niche amongst first time car buyers with its unique propositions.”

Mahindra KUV100So…is this what American automakers will be driving while they are living in India making the most of the economic auto boom?
