It's technically a boat. It's also technically a Lamborghini. And, it's technologically advanced thanks to a collaboration between The Italian Sea Group and Lamborghini's Centro Stile.

The new Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is a limited edition motor yacht that delivers on the precision engineering and looks that make a Lamborghini a Lamborghini. To develop the model, the two companies worked in harmony during several design sessions, taking inspiration from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.

The challenge came when reinterpreting the car's aesthetics and putting them into a yacht. Both companies wanted to ensure the high level of performance they've built their reputations on would be upheld while the quality of materials and attention to detail were in line as well.

This yacht represents the significance of creating a valuable partnership, at its best: our co-operation allows the essence of both organisations' style and expertise to be transferred to different worlds, sharing in their diversity to interpret and add value to the final product in a new environment," said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision. I'm delighted to celebrate this successful collaboration."

"We announced this partnership in May, and today we present Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a motor yacht which will became as futuristic an icon as the car she is inspired by," said Giovanni Costantino, CEO of The Italian Sea Group. "Selected owners around the world will own not only the fastest Tecnomar motor yacht in the fleet, but a Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 masterpiece. I'm proud that we have chosen to create this innovative and challenging project with Automobili Lamborghini, which links technology, supreme design, quality and performance."

The beating hearts of the yacht are two MAN V12-2000 horsepower engines. The boat can reach 60 knots, making it the fastest in the Tecomar fleet. It features carbon fiber, like a Lamborghini, which puts it in the ultra-lightweight boat classification. Despite its 63-foot length, it weighs just 24 tons.

The carbon fibre material, typical of Lamborghini super sports cars, puts this motor yacht firmly in the ultra-lightweight boat classification, with its 63 feet length weighing in at just 24 tons - the weight of 14 Huracáns.

Further design elements evoke the heritage of the Lamborghini brand. According to a release,

"The hull and the superstructure are created from a high-performance shell, developed by naval engineers specializing in hydrodynamic sciences.They interpret the design lines, created by Marcello Gandini in the Miura and the Countach of the 60s and 70s, in a contemporary way. The hard top is inspired by Lamborghini roadsters: providing sun and wind protection while guaranteeing an outstanding aerodynamic performance. The bow lights are an homage to the Lamborghini concept car Terzo Millennio and to the Sián FKP 37, both distinctive for their Y-shaped front lights."

The interior of the boat marries form and function. The hexagonal shapes and straight lines Lamborghini is known for, as well as the Y-motif, are replicated throughout the boat. Buyers will be able to fully customize the colors and materials for their craft in the same manner in which they can do as part of Lamborghini's Ad Personam program.

Exterior colors and livery options are also customizable.

The yacht's instrument panel brings the modernization of car cockpit to a boat, integrating navigation and control systems. Interior details are finished in carbon fiber, natch. Like Lamborghini cars, the yacht has a start-stop button for each engine.

The first boat will be available at the beginning of 2021.

2022 Infiniti Q50 gets more standard tech

The car sees new tech and interior features for 2022.

Infiniti

The Infiniti Q50 is an aging but still-stylish sedan that offers value and power, but it hasn't quite kept pace with the crop of more engaging premium European cars. However, it's still worth a look, and to press that point further, Infiniti has updated the car for 2022 with a healthy list of standard features.

Headline updates for the 2022 Q50 are wireless Apple CarPlay and newly standard Bose Performance Series Audio. There's now leather for every trim, but in the ways that count, the car is the same as the one we saw last year, the year before, and so on.

That's not to say that the car is bad. After all, it still offers a 300-horsepower twin-turbo V6 as standard and can be upgraded with a 400-horsepower version of the engine. And, despite its aging exterior styling, it's still a handsome car with smooth, sculpted bodywork. The seven-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive remain in place.

Stepping up to the top Q50 Red Sport 400 will run $56,975, and brings the more powerful V6 engine, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and Dynamic Digital Suspension, which adjusts damping settings depending on road conditions and driving style.

The Navigator gets several updates for 2022, including new styling and tech.

Lincoln

The Lincoln Navigator was one of the first ultra-luxury SUVs when it launched over two decades ago, which helped kickstart the big-vehicle craze that still rages on today. Lincoln has continued improving the Navigator over the years to the point that it's now a rolling showcase of the latest and most impressive tech, staggering luxury features, and actual utility vehicle functionality. The vehicle was last fully overhauled in 2018, but the 2022 model picks up revised style, even more premium features, and new themes for the range-topping Navigator Black Label model.


2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label is Lincoln's top trim offering, and is available in several of its vehicles. Lincoln


Lincoln introduced two new themes as part of the Navigator's Black Label offering for 2022. The Central Park theme features dark walnut open-pore wood trim, luxury leather in an exclusive Urban Green color, and an available Black Label-exclusive Manhattan Green Metallic paint color. The Invitation theme brings open-pore Khaya wood, Venetian luxury black leather, special interior lighting elements, and brandy-colored stitching. Both themes feature laser etching and other intricate detail work inside the vheicle.

Black Label launched in 2014 and is Lincoln's top-end end model offering. It's available in the Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator, and brings several vehicle features and auxiliary services to Lincoln owners. Black Label vehicle features and services include:

  • Concierge access: The Lincoln concierge can schedule service or cleaning, answer vehicle questions, and help schedule dinners or other experiences. Black Label owners also get a complimentary dinner for two, which can be scheduled through the concierge.
  • Special airport and rental car services: Lincoln partnered with Avis to provide guaranteed rental car access, an exclusive and dedicated phone line for Black Label owners, and free rentals at select airports. Owners also get a membership to CLEAR, which offers expedited airport security passage and other perks.
  • Extended complimentary maintenance plan: Black Label owners receive four years of free maintenance. If the owner lives within 50 miles of a dealer, they will pick up and deliver the vehicle so that the owner does not need to leave home. Free car washes and annual detailing are also part of the deal.

We don't have pricing details for the 2022 Navigator yet, but we expect its price tag to be similar to that of the 2021 Black Label model, which started at around $100,000 after destination. Lincoln says that it will release more information closer to the Navigator's expected on-sale date early in 2022.
