Welcome to the Week in Reverse, presented by AutoMotorMart. In this edition, we bring you exciting updates from the automotive world. We had the opportunity to test drive the 2024 Lotus Eletre, Aston Martin unveiled their latest creation, the Valour, and the successor to the Lamborghini Huracán was finally unveiled. Let’s dive into the details.
Our experience with the 2024 Lotus Eletre revealed a luxury electric vehicle that certainly impressed, but it strayed from the traditional characteristics of a Lotus. Rather than a light and agile sports car, the Eletre presented itself as a powerful and spacious SUV. However, potential buyers may face a challenge in purchasing the Eletre due to the limited availability of dealerships in the United States.
Shifting gears, Porsche made an exciting announcement with the introduction of an updated My Porsche app for iPhones. This new app resolves the inconvenience of exiting Apple CarPlay to access certain vehicle functions. By integrating core features into the CarPlay interface, Porsche aims to enhance the user experience.
Aston Martin captured our attention with the debut of the Valour, a model that pays homage to the golden era of driving with its retro aesthetics, V-12 engine, and manual transmission. Only 110 units of the Valour will be produced, adding an exclusive touch to this remarkable vehicle.
Koenigsegg also made waves with their Gemera, which will now be available with a V-8 engine. Christian von Koenigsegg, the CEO of the Swedish automaker, announced the 2,300-horsepower variant of this four-seat hypercar, accompanied by a significant expansion of their manufacturing facility. Additionally, customers will still have the option of a turbocharged 3-cylinder engine paired with three electric motors, delivering up to 1,700 horsepower.
Lastly, the much-anticipated successor to the Lamborghini Huracán has begun testing on public roads. This plug-in hybrid supercar, set to arrive in late 2024, boasts a distinct design separate from its sibling, the Revuelto.
