These 7 Unique Rolls-Royce Wisdom Editions Are Just For Abu Dhabi [100 Pics] 7
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Middle East, Rolls Royce Dawn, Rolls Royce Phantom, Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe, Rolls Royce Wraith, Rolls-Royce, Rolls-Royce Ghost on 05 7th, 2017

The Middle East is a hugely important region for Rolls-Royce. Even with sales there stagnating, the region still remains its third largest market, while the dealership in Dubai moves more metal than any other in the world. Little wonder, then, that so many of its special editions are made specifically for the Persian Gulf.

This latest project from the Rolls-Royce Bespoke division didn’t just yield one special model, though, or a short run of them. It takes the form of seven unique one-off vehicles, each distinct from the other and from any other ever made. And they’re all bound for the Emirates.

Commissioned by the dealership in Abu Dhabi, the Wisdom Collection draws its inspiration from landmarks and traditions in the country. There’s one of each model that Rolls-Royce makes, and tellingly two based on the Wraith.

There’s a Phantom saloon inspired by the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, rendered in two-tone white and gold with an intricately embroidered floral headliner, which itself took 800 hours and nearly 400,000 stitches to complete. It’s joined by a Phantom Coupe evocative of the Qasr-Al Hosn fortress in bright blue and white with gold detailing, and a desert rose-inspired Phantom Drophead Coupe in white and a deep wine red.

The Ghost sedan is inspired by ancient trade routes and features a white and gold paintjob with gold brightwork and yellow trim. The Dawn convertible recalls traditional pearling with ocean hues of blue, teal, silver, and beige. And while one Wraith draws its inspiration from falconry in white with gold trim and a deep reddish brown leather interior, the other recalls the Sheikh Zayed Bridge in blue, white, and silver.

Each features specially designed, hand-painted coach lines and little easter eggs throughout, representative of the vehicle’s particular theme. You can rest assured that the Abu Dhabi dealership will charge a suitable premium for each, and that they’ll all sell in due course.

BMWs, Minis & Rolls-Royces Ensnared In Airbag Recall 16
Posted by Carscoops Staff in BMW, BMW 4-Series, BMW 5-Series, BMW 6-Series, BMW i3, BMW i8, BMW M4, BMW M5, BMW M6, BMW X1, BMW X5, MINI, MINI Clubman, MINI Hatch, Recalls, Rolls Royce Dawn, Rolls-Royce on 01 16th, 2017

BMW has issued a pair of recalls in the United States – neither of which is particularly large in the number of units affected, but the array of models they cover is staggering.

The larger of two stems from a problem with the seat-mounted side airbags, which may not deploy in the event of a crash. The campaign covers only 3,506 units from the 4 Series, 5 Series, and 6 Series – including the M4, M5, and M6 – as well as the X1, i3, and i8.

Included among them are various powertrain variants and bodystyles, all of them from the 2016 and 2017 model years. As if that’s not enough, the recall extends to other products made under the BMW Group umbrella, including the Mini Cooper, Cooper S, and Clubman, as well as the Rolls-Royce Dawn.

Only 1 percent of those models mentioned are estimated to have the faulty airbag inflators. For instance, while 1,531 examples of the X1 crossover are affected, only one four examples of the i8 are being recalled, along with 28 Dawns, and one single 535d sedan.

Along with the airbag recall, BMW has issued another for eight examples of the X5 xDrive40e plug-in hybrid crossover. The problem here stems from a loose electric ground cable, which could cause the transmission to shift unexpectedly to neutral.

Fixing the former problem will necessitate replacing the airbag modules, while the latter will require simply tightening the ground cable. Both recalls are slated to get underway February 6.
