Custom Defender 90

E.C.D. Automotive Design, the award-winning creator of high-end luxury vehicles, locally delivered a Defender that is undoubtedly one of the most thrilling off-road vehicles the company has produced to date – a custom Defender 90 (D90) Soft-top powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine with 430-horsepower.

The “fun factor” of driving this custom D90 isn’t entirely from having the soft-top off in Florida while cruising the beach-line, it’s from shifting through the gears of its 5-speed manual transmission. This D90, called, Project Ranger, delivers a full senses-engaged driving experience with the soft-top off, its manual transmission, and the sound of its Borla Performance exhaust system. Project Ranger is finished in full gloss paint in the color, “Terrain,” a Ford color exclusive to their Raptor model, and is matched with 18-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels in black to compliment the exterior.

The client already owned this North American Specification (NAS) Defender 90 and sent it to E.C.D. for a full restoration. Knowing the top was going to be off most of the time in Florida, the interior was designed to be more utilitarian than luxury. It’s upholstered in a charcoal-colored, weather-resistant canvas throughout.

“Driving a D90 Soft-top with the LS3 and manual transmission is an absolute blast. Tearing up and back down through the gears is something we all enjoy here at E.C.D.,” says Tom Humble, co-founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design.

Camaro ZL1 Convertible

by Tara McDonough x Vaughn Lowery

2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible

At the starting price of $67,500 the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible combines a beautiful exterior with the amenities and power to back it up. With a roof that folds down in under 20 seconds and the ability to go from 0-60 MPH in 3.5 seconds, any average drive can turn into a carefree cruise in the sun or the last lap of the Daytona 500. The Camaro ZL1 convertible is the high-speed drop-top to beat.

PERFORMANCE

The Camaro owes its incredible velocity to its 6.2L engine and supercharged V8. The fast-shifting model boasts a 650 hp and 650 lb.-ft of torque, the option of standard six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic, and a maximum speed of 195 MPH. Brembo performance brakes ensure that even the fastest rides can be kept under control. Working hand in hand with the automatic transition are magnetic ride control, limited slip differential and exhaust dual mode performance. Custom Launch Control allows for optimized acceleration and Line Lock to lock the Camaro’s front wheels and enable the rear wheels to spin for maximum grip. The annual fuel cost comes out to $2,800 at 6.2 gallons per 100 miles and 16 MPG combined city and highway performance. The exhaust notes are music to the ears of any car enthusiast, mimicking the sounds of thunder and lightning. The quad exhaust can be compared to the Jaguar F Type SVR, but the Camaro comes in first place. Any driver will feel like a winner in this drag-race style convertible.

EXTERIOR

The Camaro ragtop has a hard tonneau top that reclines by remote activation for easy access and a frame that sits low, comparable to the Lamborghini Huracán. Aerodynamic enhancements like a front air dam, splitter and a carbon fiber hood extractor, along with a carbon fiber rear wing, help reduce lift and increase downforce to keep ZL1 glued to the track. The exterior is equipped with HD headlamps and tail lamps with LED signature and 20” wheels made of forged aluminum for a clean and forceful look. The styling screams power and appears much more refined than its predecessors.The rear end adopts fresh taillights and a revised bumper.

INTERIOR

Despite its roaring engine, the Camaro’s cabin has the quietest interior noise which pairs comfortably with Recaro leather trimmed bucket seats and suede seat inserts. The momentum and performance of the car pulls drivers in and the race inspired Recaro seats keep them there, snugly in place for a wild ride. The styling and refinements are reminiscent of German auto options. Front seats can be heated and ventilated and cuff the body tight on fast paced drives.

SAFETY

The Camaro not only comes equipped for speed, but for safety as well. It’s Stabilitrak stability control includes traction control combined with rear cross traffic alert, park assist and side blind zone alert. Owners are not only safe from driving mishaps, but battery rundown and theft as well.

TECHNOLOGY

Besides coming supplied with standard options such as voice recognition, Apple carplay, 4G LTE wifi hotspot and wireless phone charging, the Camaro includes an enhanced Performance Data Recorder. With the Data Recorder drivers are able to view real-time performance data in order to analyze technique and improve driving abilities. Any driver can train themselves for professional racing. Other notable additions include Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 software, newly standard forward-collision warning and one of the best Bose sound systems in its class. If the noise cancelling cabin didn’t drown out the Camaro’s thunderous motor, then the concert-like sound experience would definitely do the trick.

The Camaro Convertible ZL1, with its bold rear styling, upgraded technology and insane performance, is equally at home on the road, track or drag strip.

Suisun Valley, Fairfield

Story by Susan Hiland provided by Daily Republic

Suisun Valley greeted a group of out-of-town travel writers with a bounty of beauty, food and wine over the weekend.

They toured just about every winery, olive oil factory, candy-making company and barley brew-maker in the area.

This was the result of the Fairfield Conference & Visitors Bureau reaching out to Geiger & Associates, which has put together these travel tours for several communities including Lodi.

“This is the first time we have done something like this,” said Anand Patel, president/CEO of Visit Fairfield. “The goal was to get people thinking about Fairfield and Suisun Valley.”

He said he hoped that the travel writers would see the beauty of the valley and share that with their readers. The writers came from Portland, Oregon, Southern California, Northern California and even Quebec, Canada.

“We hope people read their articles and get interested in the valley,” he said.

The group of writers included Susan G. Hauser, Elyse Glickman, Vaughn Lowery, Wendy van Diver, Cortney Erndt, Carla Waldemar, Ruksana Hussain, Wendy Lemlin, Janet Boileau and Robin Raven.

The writers arrived Thursday and enjoyed an afternoon at Jelly Belly Candy Co., where they took the tour, sampled sweet treats and shopped.

“Every single stop we hope they learn something new,” Patel said.

Boileau, a writer and publisher for Taste and Travel International Magazine, which is a culinary publication with 20,000 subscribers across Canada, had no idea about Suisun Valley.

“I didn’t know what to expect,” she said. “But this is a very impressive part of the wine country.”

She was enjoying how relaxing the area was with some wine from Suisun Valley Wine Co-op along Pleasants Valley Road. The stop offered an opportunity for everyone to sample a variety of wines from the area in one place.

Lowery is the president of 360 Magazine, a lifestyle magazine that goes out to thousands of subscribers from Los Angeles to Japan.

“Anyone visiting here needs to stop at Il Fiorello Olive Oil Co.,” he said. “It was a sensory overload.”

They sampled a meal with each of the foods having been created using produce from the company’s garden.

“This is a great cross of Napa and Sonoma,” Lowery said. “It’s a place you can take time out and is very drivable.”

He said he was envisioning himself returning with a convertible, rolling the top down and just cruising through the back roads as a vacation.

“We tasted the grapes at Wooden Valley Winery. They were so sweet, I thought no way that was real,” he said.

“Fairfield is just a great town for a great road trip,” he said.

2018 JAGUAR F-TYPE 400 

By Vaughn Lowery × Anthony Sovinsky

For 2018, Jaguar is introducing a genetically enhanced version of its already popular F-Type series – the 400 Sport Coupe Special Edition. At first glimpse, the vehicle immediately appears to be a part of the family, yet subtle differences cause it to break away from the battalion. 

Although the F-Type didn’t call for a redesign, they redefined excellence with a one-year-only configuration. This limited version exhibits tons of sporty appointments which hint nifty performance gains to be anticipated as well. The 400 Sport is featured in three different metallic colors: Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black. It arrives in two different drive trains – AWD and RWD. Lastly, one can select between a convertible or coupe. 

As of late, we had the joy of testing out the Indus Silver two-door AWD (allowing it to grip and corner with ease). While approaching the vehicle head-on, you are at once enthralled by its bespoke elements – stealthy accents on the grille fitted with an audacious front splitter adorning “400 Sport” in bold yellow.

While orbiting the vehicle, we gained an admiration of its contoured yet nimble stance. Some of the new additions included blade-like extended side sills and prominent front/rear splitters which shout, “I am fast as I am athletic.” It squats on 20″ Dark Satin alloy wheels that come to a stop with Super Performance 380mm front and 376mm rear brakes (currently, an upgrade featured in the 400 Sport). With a wheelbase of 103.2,” ground clearance of only 4.1″ and a length of 176.5,” you can be reassureed that this vehicle was built to track (very little drag coefficient w/ automatic retractable spoiler). 

The F-Type 400 Sport possesses the most agile V6 offered in the series, until now still doesn’t measure up to the R (V8 550hp) and SVR (V8 575hp)’s performance. It’s the difference between a Ferris wheel and a roller coaster (less scream factor). Nevertheless, this 3.0L V6 400PS supercharged engine delivers 400hp with 339lb-ft of torque alongside of an 8-speed gearbox. It’s 20hp faster than its forerunners. Most of it is felt in the top end which makes it worth acquiring. This increase in power also enhances the already invigorating exhaust that’s expelled through the trumpet-like tips. Letting off the gas at high RPMs (5000+) will make the car backfire – crackling and popping like a 4th of July fireworks show. Don’t fret, though. As prevalent in former models, Jaguar wanted to make certain you don’t upset the neighbors by adding an option to tame it with the press of a button. 

Inside the cabin, your eyes are drawn yet again to the vibrant yellow emblems, “400 Sport” tastefully planted: the steering wheel; console finisher; embroidered headrests and tread plates, reminding you of the anomaly of which you have. In addition, slimmer premium leather performance seats improve dash to backrest space, creating a racier ambiance. For the foremost time, there’s a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel accompanied by anodized aluminum paddle shifters ergonomically placed for aggressive driving. Next, you’ll discover the beautifully black-coated aluminum center dash baring a touch screen infotainment system which allows you to navigate, choose your favorite station and/or Bluetooth to your smart devices.  

The 2018 Jaguar F-type 400 Sport Coupe Special Edition is definitely something special. Aside from all the jaw-dropping signature patches, it offers exclusivity to the owner because of its minimal production, unique performance and cosmetic upgrades. This makes it a well-balanced vehicle of choice for those seeking something snazzy without the hefty price tag.  

In short, we forecast this to become the affluent millennials’ two-seater select for 2018.  

2017 RANGE ROVER EVOQUE CONVERTIBLE

​By Benjamin Reese + Vaughn Lowery 



There’s no question that the Land Rover is a hallmark manufacturer synonymous with traversing over the Earth’s most spartan deserts, tundras, jungles, badlands, city streets and/or country backroads with grace and elegance. The brand best known for building competent off-road luxury SUV’s with tremendous success is testing their hand in the cabriolet SUV segment with the new 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible. Birthed with the history and pedigree to back up its performance capability plus nothing but evocative styling to come across the eye – looks like they got a winner on their hands.  

This Range Rover takes a pretty healthy punch of accolades as standard; and jeez, do they ‘swing for the fences’ – an electronic rear differential, active torque biasing system, AWD with an active driveline and an all-terrain response system for sand, snow, gravel or mud situations. In the toughest of situations, watching over the mechanical hardware’s every move are active electronic systems which control everything from brakeforce distribution, torque vectoring, hill descent, stability control and roll. Essentially, it possesses the goods to overcome a majority of previously thought impossible scenarios. 

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible has a strong hunkered down stance over the road. The Yulong white color scheme looked fit for a Stormtrooper (Star Wars); and retracting the roof (acoustic insulated top folds flush in just 18 seconds at speeds of up to 29mph) will win the “wo/man of the show” award, which we won while stuck in Hollywood traffic. 

Leisurely cruising around in a convertible SUV was as blissful as it sounds, but this Range Rover aggressively moves for it’s size with frisky acceleration sprints. Hat’s off to a very dynamic 240hp turbocharged engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission which brilliantly disguises overall body mass. Darting around Los Angeles in the Evoque is no different than whipping around in a BMW 3 Series. 

Boosting overall stimulation inside the cockpit is a 660 watt Meridian Audio system with full Bluetooth connectivity and navigation system. The Evoque is a moving off-road lounge with configurable ambient interior lighting to set the mood on your expedition. We found our comfort levels equal with the top up or down thanks to dual zone climate control systems and milky oxford leather seats. 

For just under 60K, the 2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible mimics the driving feel of both the Hummer H1 and BMW 3 Series – it’s quite magical.

JAGUAR F-TYPE R CONVERTIBLE #TBT

by Vaughn Lowery

Every few years or so, a car company fabricates a phenomenon. Over the past three seasons, one of the automotive industry’s proven loudest leaders is the 2016 JAGUAR F-TYPE R Convertible for a myriad of reasons: it’s stunning blueprint, progressive transmission and obnoxious exhaust (loud and unapologetic). Coming in at around $111,245 bucks, you are simultaneously propelled into both the modern-day muscle car and luxury market segments – pushing 0 to 60 mph in under 3.9 seconds with more bells than whistles (one of the more advanced technology packages in its class). It’s 550hp 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine bears a true sports car experience with 502 lb-ft torque, jolting heads back and forth. Furthermore, it stops at the bead of a dime with a super performance braking system – one of the best in the story of its maker.

The overall styling of the vehicle is reminiscent of the 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage but has a more aggressive stance with sharper lines, 20″ alloy wheels, xenon integrated headlamps with LED signature and cannon-like quad exhaust tips. This year’s model offers a much more exhilarating ride with standard AWD, allowing better cornering and less slip in wetter climate regions. Interior has carbon fiber trim, two-toned race inspired 14-way adjustable performance seats with prominent stitching and James Bond-like air vents sink down flush into the dashboard with dual climate controls and seat heaters. Fully electric cloth top retracts in less than 12 seconds, leaving just enough trunk space to stow one fully packed overnight rolling bag and weekender duffle. This year’s model also comes well-equipped with a much faster infotainment system complete with navigation and active settings for steering, engine and suspension at the touch of a button for a firmer ride experience. The sport mode takes the car from touring mode to race car-like experience in a matter of seconds with pedal shifters behind a 3 spoke chunky wheel that heats for a cool day or night driving. Or, you can left push 8-speed quickshifter into sports mode for a more manual drive atmosphere. The crackling exhaust coupled with the occasional pop at the tinge of a button was music to our ears. 
Furthermore, the general design profile slightly metamorphoses at 50 mph when rear fin automatically deploys (also causes a switch in the middle console to trigger). Wind noise was cut by a 770W Meridian audio system with 12 speakers, bolting out your favorite satellite or Bluetoothed Pandora station. There’s very small room for road/lot distraction with blind spot warning, emergency brake assist and backup sensors/camera for parking. 

We took the car for a long 4.5 hour drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with top down and found it to be the most comfortable ride largely due to the climate package. Even with a light drizzle, the new drive train exhibited little to no slip at high velocities. The roadster’s pure aerodynamics forced condensation to flow over our heads and not to enter the cabin while all windows were cast upward. Upon arrival at Aria Hotel & Casino, we unpacked and packed on a few rounds of blackjack; then decided to re-engage our glacier white colored car, hopping back into the cockpit for a nightly drive on the strip underneath the city’s coruscating lights.

Hands-down, the 2016 JAGUAR F-TYPE R Convertible is one of the most prolific automobiles of the millennial generation, specializing in extreme comfort, perfect execution and innovation. Kudos to Jaguar Land Rover of Tata Motors for engineering such a beautiful piece of artistic creation in motion.

DAWN BLACK BADGE

….the engineering substance that leads to more spirited driving is accentuated by the creation of an entirely new exhaust system, that when deployed by the press of the ‘low’ button, celebrates Rolls-Royce’s hallmark V12 engine with a menacing bass baritone, announcing its arrival with authority rather than hysteria.

 

 

THE NEXT CHAPTER OF THE BLACK BADGE STORY DAWNS AT THE GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

 

 

At the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, Rolls-Royce presented a truly transformative moment on the luxury landscape – the introduction of a permanent Bespoke family of motor cars called Black Badge, designed in response to the differing lifestyle requirements of a younger, more dynamic patron of luxury.

 

Since its introduction, Black Badge has done much to attract a new generation of Rolls-Royce customers to the marque. As a result of overwhelmingly positive customer demand for Ghost Black Badge and Wraith Black Badge, the time is now right to add a new chapter to the Black Badge story.

 

The 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed will celebrate machines so beyond measurable limitations, they have changed the landscape in which they operate – an entirely fitting stage on which the third chapter in this truly transformative story can unfurl – the global debut of Dawn Black Badge, the most uncompromising expression of open-top luxury in the world.

 

The Black Badge story

Since it was launched in 2016, Black Badge has become the most commanding presence on the super-luxury landscape. Its authentic Bespoke engineering and design approach has answered the demands of those customers who have said “Build us a Rolls-Royce like no other”.  

 

Black Badge is Rolls-Royce’s response to a small and select group of clients who have asked the marque for motor cars with specific, focused characteristics that reflect their different take on life, success and the luxury they consume. These people choose to define themselves differently from their wider social group; a subset within a subset.

 

 

It is this indomitable spirit that, since the launch of Black Badge, has captivated so many of today’s young owners, who are drawn to Rolls-Royce in the knowledge that no other luxury house is possessed of the vision and flexibility to meet their demands both in design and engineering terms. Indeed, Black Badge serves to amplify the inherent characteristics that have driven so many new, younger patrons of luxury to the marque.

 

In conceiving Black Badge versions of Wraith, Ghost and now Dawn, the marque’s Bespoke designers and engineers drew upon their instinctive understanding of the unique lives of these extraordinary men and women to create both design and engineering treatments that perfectly amplify the inherent values of these great Rolls-Royces.

 

Dawn Black Badge

Created to satisfy overwhelming demand from a new breed of Rolls-Royce patrons, Dawn Black Badge stands as the most luxurious, social and sensual space from which to take in the night air. This most glamorous, uncompromising expression of open-top luxury is given a new and darker sensual dimension through its suite of Black Badge engineering and design treatments.

 

The Dawn Black Badge at the Festival of Speed is presented in a deeply intense shade of black. Multiple layers of paint and lacquer have been fastidiously applied and hand-polished in a process that amounts to the most exhaustive painting and polishing process ever used for a solid paint colour. The result clothes Dawn’s sensuous lines in the deepest, darkest and most intense black to ever grace a production car surface. The roof, which opens in a ‘Silent Ballet’ to allow in the sounds of the night, is also only available in black canvas, whilst the rear deck is finished in black leather.

 

In creating Black Badge, Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke designers have sought to create true signifiers of this more assertive alter-ego for the marque. Dawn gets this same treatment.

 

The Spirit of Ecstasy – itself a mascot that has taken many different forms throughout the marque’s history – transforms into a high-gloss vamp, finished in a perfectly executed black chrome. This transformation to a darker aesthetic extends to certain chrome surfaces including the front grille surround, boot lid finisher, exhaust pipes and air inlet finisher. The effect is an authentic transformation that speaks of a bolder, more confident sensibility. Finally, the ‘Double R’ signifiers on the Rolls-Royce badges are inverted in colour, confirming the creation of a true alter-ego of the marque.

 

This bold, edgy design ethos extends beautifully into the interior – an exquisitely appointed staging point for patrons who seek to discover the night’s elements with the roof down. This exquisite expression of noir informs every conceivable detail. For example, innovative production techniques such as Physical Vapour Deposition, a highly technical surfacing method, perfectly darkens the air-vents throughout the interior in a manner that will never discolour or tarnish.

 

Reflecting the marque’s Bespoke philosophy, Dawn Black Badge also plays host to a new interior palette break-up. Higher levels of exquisite Black leather are accented boldly with Mandarin highlights, including a strip of orange highlight which encircles the cabin at hip-height, evocative of the sunset before the passengers are immersed in darkness.

 

A final touch, again, in a nod to one of Rolls-Royce’s great pioneer patrons, Sir Malcolm Campbell, finishes the rear interior space. His famous ‘Infinity’ rating logo beautifully embroidered into the car’s rear waterfall, gives a subtle nod to a man very much possessed of the restless spirit that so defines the Black Badge attitude.

 

Truly Bespoke Engineering  

Like its stablemates Ghost and Wraith, the distilled essence of Dawn is amplified through the engineering that underpins the Black Badge philosophy. In the case of Dawn, the engineering substance that leads to more spirited driving is accentuated by the creation of an entirely new exhaust system, that when deployed by the press of the ‘low’ button, celebrates Rolls-Royce’s hallmark V12 engine with a menacing bass baritone, announcing its arrival with authority rather than hysteria.

 

The exhaust tone adds an aural dimension to a suite of engineering enhancements. Indeed, Black Badge stands as a truly Bespoke collaboration between design and engineering, answering the demands of a new breed of patron of luxury who seeks a more spirited, involving driving experience which retains the peerless quality of ride that has driven Dawn’s success. To achieve this, the engineers have exploited the flexibility of Dawn’s magnificent 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 to generate an extra 30bhp over the car’s already ample 563bhp, bringing the total to 593bhp. That hallmark sense of one infinite gear is also given bolder expression with the addition of a further 20NM of torque available from 1,500rpm, bringing the total to 840NM.

 

Fundamental changes to the transmission and throttle strategy give Dawn an enhanced feeling of urgency without diminishing its position as the world’s most luxurious open-top tourer. Indeed, the drive-train, ZF 8-speed gear box and steering-rack are so intuitive that they work together to create a more spirited drive depending on throttle and steering input. The result is a perfectly stately Rolls-Royce touring experience at low speeds and a highly engaging drive when the driver seeks to ‘push on’. Fundamental changes to suspension settings and components also ensure an appropriate balance between Rolls-Royce comfort and driver focus, felt in flatter cornering at high speeds.

 

The increased urgency of Dawn Black Badge has led to the development of new brakes with an increase in diameter of one inch. During deceleration, a fundamental remapping of the transmission strategy leads to downshifts a few rpm sooner under braking, offering engine braking when driving in a more spirited manner.

 

The steering-rack has also been quickened and engineered for more feedback. Speed-dependent adjustments also embolden Black Badge drivers as they enjoy an added sense of security and feel derived from increased steering weight at high speeds.

 

Dawn Black Badge is now available to commission.
