Speeding Audi A8 T-Bones Hummer Limo, Both Drivers At Fault? 5

Despite the Audi having the right of way, had it not been speeding, the Hummer might have had time to clear the intersection.

That’s not to say that whoever was behind the wheel of that old A8 was more to blame than the limo driver. The latter should have paid more attention, without assuming that any incoming traffic would stick to the speed limit.

However, it almost seems as though the driver of the Audi didn’t brake as hard as they could/should have once they noticed the Hummer poking its nose where it didn’t belong.

This crash is a perfect example of why people should slow down at intersections, even if they have the right of way, have a green light and even if they’re not speeding. You never know who’s out there not paying attention.

As for the impact itself, we could call it moderate. Let’s hope the person driving the Audi was wearing a seat belt.

‘World’s First’ Tesla Model S Limo Selling For $67k On Ebay 22

A seller on eBay is looking to part ways with what they assert was the ‘world’s first’ Tesla Model S.

Based on a Model S 85, the highest bid at the time of writing was just a touch over $67,000, less than an ordinary 2015 Model S 85 would have cost you in 2015. Evidently, people don’t seem too keen on paying a premium for an electric vehicle that’s literally been chopped in half and lengthened.

The seller asserts that all of the new panels and underpinnings for the limo are made from aluminum and that it was built as an “advertisement project.” Curiously, work was never finished and the limo is reportedly only 90 per cent complete.

“This vehicle has tons of potential to become whatever the new owner has in mind. We are selling the vehicle as is without a warranty. We are a limo manufacturer and could finish the vehicle for an additional fee,” the listing states.

Sadly, this Model S isn’t the first victim of the limousine industry. Over the past decade, numerous premium cars have been spliced in two and transformed into limos, including a handful of Ferraris.

Limousines converted from sedans are becoming a thing of the past as those fortunate enough have been gravitating towards pimped-out SUVs and vans. That's a bit of a shame, because long and low limos like this one are about as cool as they come.

The 2010 Moscow International Motor Show will see Jaguar lifting the wraps off a new armored version of its XJ luxury sports saloon.

The limo is made charming with the use of advanced design, refined performance and a good looking cabin.

The vehicle also boasts of a lightweight aluminium body structure, which makes it possible for a pretty 500kg payload for passengers and luggage without compromising on performance. Powered by a responsive 5.0-litre 385PS AJ-V8 Gen III naturally aspirated direct-injection V8 petrol engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the vehicle boasts of a powertrain that ensures swift and agile performance. The car is capable of racing from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds, with a top speed of 195km/h.
