New Beast in Town

The limited edition supercar from Audi, the R8 LMX, has been launched in India at Rs 2.97 crore (ex-Mumbai and Delhi). The LMX claims to be the fastest R8 yet with a quoted speed of 320 kmph and a nought to 100 in a very brisk 3.4 seconds. Powering the machine is a mid-mounted 5.2-litre V10 engine. It is also the first ever production of Audi to get laser headlamps. Only 99 units of the car will be available worldwide.

Timeless Timepieces

With the Adamavi range, Swiss watchmakers Carl F Bucherer have created a collection that represents timeless design and an effort to preserve things for proven design. All the models in the collection—the name Adamavi comes from Latin, meaning ‘to come to love something’—are characterised by timeless simplicity and mechanical reliability. Set in stainless steel and 18K rose gold, the watches have straps made of alligator leather or the same metal combination as the dial.
