Cargo ship with Bentley, Audi luxury cars is on fire in Atlantic Ocean

A massive cargo ship holding thousands of luxury cars, including 1,000 Porsches, was left floating across the Atlantic Ocean after it caught fire near the Terceira Island in the Azores, the Portuguese island territory. 

The ship departed from Emden, Germany, on Feb. 10 and was scheduled to arrive in Davisville, Rhode Island, on Wednesday before a fire broke out.  The 22 crew members on board were safely lifted out of the burning ship via a helicopter, as seen in a video.

Authorities did not specify the exact amount of cargo left on the 650-foot, 60,000-ton ship. However, automotive website The Drive reported that the cargo ship is also carrying 4,000 vehicles from the Volkswagen Group, including 189 Bentleys and an unknown number of Audis.

2022 Lucid Air electric luxury sedan may be best car in the world by middle of next year

NEWARK, California — By the middle of 2022, the Lucid Air electric luxury sedan may be the best car in the world.

After a day driving the new EV and another touring Lucid’s Silicon Valley HQ/tech center, I’m convinced the fast, elegant and advanced Air is, like the iPhone, one of those rare products that won’t just succeed: It will change its industry, inspiring customers to demand more, forcing companies to do better.

Also like the original iPhone, which inspired jokes that it could do everything but make a phone call, the Lucid Air didn’t roll out of the factory perfect on Day 1.

I can’t dismiss the Lucid EV’s early-production software glitches. An automaker’s Prime Directive is to produce vehicles that open their doors and drive off on the first attempt, just as a telephone that struggles with audio calls is flawed, no matter how marvelous its other capacities.

The original Austin/Morris Mini, which debuted in 1959, remains a desirable classic—with such innovations as a space-saving transverse-mounted engine and front-wheel drive. But as a car you could use today it has some limitations, especially the tiny 850-cc engine that was in the base cars. It produced only 34 horsepower, with a zero-to-60 time of, yes, 27 seconds. It could reach 70 miles per hour, but barely. 

David Brown Automotive is betting that it can capture customers for its “Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition.” Only 60 of these hand-built cars—with the look and feel of an original Mini—will be made, with the build at an 18,000-square-foot facility in Silverstone, England, taking a reported 1,400 hours. The first Oselli, announced in 2019 to coincide with the Mini’s 60th birthday, has
