This is the New BMW XM Label Red

The brand new and downright huge BMW XM is making tongues wag, but at least it delivers a lot of power. We didn’t get to see the already announced top version yet, but today we did. This is the BMW XM Label Red.

Yesterday BMW finally pulled the – undoubtedly hefty – curtain off the BMW XM, a gigantic SUV designed to reinforce the 50th anniversary of BMW’s M division. BMW M enthusiasts have some thoughts on that, but at least they can’t argue that the car lacks power in absolute terms. Even in standard form, the plug-in hybrid über-SUV produces 653 hp, more than the M5 CS, which until recently was considered the most powerful street BMW ever.

That the regular BMW XM would not be allowed to keep that title for long also became immediately clear. For BMW immediately announced the BMW XM Label Red, the powerful top version, which immediately introduced a new name. Of course, there is no escaping that when the model itself already has an “M” in its name. Basically, the BMW XM Label Red has the same powertrain built around a 4.4-liter V8, but with a whopping 748 hp and 1,000 Nm.

We still do not have further specifications of the XM Label Red. However, there is now one image of that car, which at least lives up to its name by sporting a red nameplate in the grille. The other accents, which were bronze or black on the previously spotted cars, are now “Toronto Red” as well. This makes for a somewhat uncomfortable overall look, to say the least. We are not averse to a little color, but the red bars over the flank and around the grille take some getting used to. Another difference with the cars shown earlier: the wheels. The ones on the Label Red on display seem a size smaller and are – really – slightly less controversial, although buyers can undoubtedly opt for (even) more striking alloys.

BMW XM LABEL RED
REGULAR BMW XM

Other than that, there are seemingly no optical differences from a regular XM. On the one hand this is understandable, because even that car already has huge bumpers with large air intakes, gigantic exhaust tailpipes and, for example, the “two-legged” M mirrors. On the other hand, it is again a shame, because without the red it seems so particularly difficult to tell which version you are dealing with.

On the inside that should become clear. There are no images yet, but BMW promises a black and red color scheme and “specific details. More information about the BMW XM Label Red will follow ahead of its market launch, scheduled for fall 2023.

MASERATI PROJECT24: NO COPY THE SAME

110 HP More than the MC20

Especially for those who already have everything else, Maserati comes with an exclusive piece of automotive track toys. The Project24-named extremist was already shown on digital drawings in the middle of this year and has now been brought into better focus.

In July, Maserati showed the first drawings of the Project24, an exclusive non-street-legal car that shares its base with the Maserati MC20. Although its name suggests otherwise, Maserati will build only 62 of the Project24. No two copies of the Project24 are the same, the Italians claim.

Although we see remnants of the MC20 particularly in the middle section of the Project24, both the front and rear are completely different. During the development of the Project24, Maserati was able to release all the brakes. Since it does not have to be street legal, Maserati obviously has all the freedom to make it something extreme. On top of that, the Project24 was not developed specifically for a particular racing class, which removes almost any kind of restrictions.

Like the MC20, the Project24 has the Nettuno-named V6, a machine that produces 630 hp in the MC20, but kicks it up to 740 hp in the Project24. The Project24 weighs about 1,250 kilograms in the process, so count on pretty hefty performance. Maserati has not yet released those, however.

Ferrari misses out on victory once again: ‘Verstappen was simply faster again’.

The disappointment is great at Ferrari after victory in Formula 1 had to be left to Max Verstappen for the fifth time in a row. Red Bull Racing’s rival was the best in Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc started from pole position in Monza, but was unable to hold his leading position. The race was eventually finished behind the safety car, which made for an anticlimax.

“It was a frustrating ending. I wanted to race. It’s a shame. I gave everything today. I would have loved to win in front of the amazing tifosi, but it simply wasn’t there,” said Leclerc.

The Monegasque won three times this season, compared to eleven victories for Verstappen. Although the championship has been out of sight for Ferrari for a while, Leclerc is trying to focus on the positive.

“Our speed was good,” he said of the race in Italy. “Let’s not forget that our expectations for this circuit were not very high. It was a nice surprise that we took pole. We made some progress and were more competitive than in previous weekends.”

Binotto: “There’s stil work to do”

Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto also saw some rays of hope, although he also remained critical. “To finish second and fourth is a good result, although of course it is a shame not to win when you start from pole,” he said.

“Max was simply faster than us again. We did make progress compared to the previous races, although it is not yet enough. There is still work to do in view of Sundays and tire wear.”

Leclerc’s gap to World Cup leader Verstappen is 116 points. In theory, the Dutchman of Red Bull Racing can already become world champion at the next race in Singapore.

The Singapore Grand Prix is followed by races in Japan, the United States, Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

Kylie Jenner Reveals How Her Mom Helped Stormi Into The world: “She pulled the baby out of my vagina”

An intimate mother-daughter moment, Kylie Jenner (25) and Kris Jenner (66) can testify to that. The two were guests on “The Late Late Show” and revealed a special story. When Kylie gave birth to her baby daughter Stormi in 2018, mom Kris was the midwife on duty. “I wore gloves and a sterile suit to take the baby out of my own child,” she said.

When Kylie gave birth to Stormi in 2018, her mother Kris was in the front row. And you can take that very literally. “She brought my first child into the world. She pulled the baby out of my vagina,” Kylie said. To which Kris agreed with the beautiful moment: “Indeed, I brought Stormi into the world. I wore gloves and a sterile suit to take the baby out of my own child.” Four years later, Kylie still views her mother’s presence in childbirth as a huge plus. “She’s amazing. She’s calm and she had six kids of her own. I didn’t want anyone else by my side.”

In February, Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed a baby for the second time. And although Kris was very close at Stormi’s birth, she took on a different role during the second delivery. “She was a videographer,” Kylie told us. Stormi had a baby brother, but his name remains a secret for now. Initially, the parents named him Wolf, but in hindsight that turned out not to be a match after all according to Kylie and Travis. The couple had second thoughts and chose another name. But on paper, the little boy is still called Wolf. “We didn’t officially change his name yet. On his passport it still says Wolf. But that won’t be his name. We’re just waiting at the moment.”

Erdogan: “Europe reaps what it sowed and faces serious problems this winter”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the energy crisis in Europe is the result of European sanctions against Russia. Those economic sanctions came in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “Europe is reaping what it has sown,” Erdogan says. “I think Europe will have serious problems this winter.”

Erdogan made his statements, according to AFP news agency, on Tuesday during a press conference in the Turkish capital Ankara. “Europe is reaping what it has sown,” it sounded. “Europe’s attitude toward Mr. Putin and the sanctions have led him, whether we like it or not, to say, ‘If you do this, I will do that.'”

“Putin is using all the means and weapons at his disposal, first and foremost natural gas. We don’t want that, but I think Europe will face serious problems this winter,” he added, saying Turkey “will not face such problems.”

In doing so, Erdogan is following Russia’s discourse on the energy crisis. The Kremlin on Monday let it be known through spokesman Dmitry Peskov that Russia will not resume gas deliveries to Europe until sanctions are lifted.



Natural Gas

The EU has stopped buying coal from Russia and is gradually introducing a ban on Russian oil. For natural gas imports, there are no restrictions yet. This is where the country bloc is heavily dependent on Russia. But with Russia turning off the tap itself, the price of gas has exploded. This is causing problems for companies and families, who can no longer pay their high energy bills.

Friend of Russia and Ukraine

For its part, Turkey maintains good relations with both Moscow and Kiev. It refused to join Western economic sanctions against Russia. Erdogan announced in early August an agreement on a partial payment in rubles for deliveries of Russian gas to Turkey. By 2021, Russia accounted for about a quarter of Turkey’s oil imports and 45% of its natural gas purchases.

One suspect in Canada stabbings Found Dead, Other Still Without a Trace

The Canadian police have found the body of one of the suspects in the stabbings of last Sunday. In two neighboring villages in the province of Saskatchewan, a total of ten people were killed and another eighteen were injured. The other suspected perpetrator, his brother, is still missing and reportedly injured.

At issue is the body of 31-year-old Damien Sanderson. Police found him dead in the indigenous community of James Smith Cree Nation, the neighborhood where the stabbings took place. This was announced by Deputy Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at a press conference. They assume that his injuries were not self-inflicted.

His brother Myles Sanderson (30) has not yet been found. Police believe he is somewhere in the city of Regina and suspect that he too is injured. Myles Sanderson is believed to have an extensive criminal record.

Ten dead in thirteen stabbings

The events occurred Sunday morning local time in the province of Saskatchewan, which is in central Canada. The two suspected perpetrators traveled to the remote villages of James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, not far from the city of Prince Albert, which has an extensive indigenous population.

A total of ten people were killed at 13 different locations in the two villages. Among them were a 77-year-old man and a mother of two daughters. They are the first victims who could be identified. Eighteen other people were injured.

Manhunt

The suspected perpetrators fled the scene and police warned all residents of Saskatchewan as well as neighboring provinces to “remain vigilant.” They were urged to be on the lookout for a black Nissan SUV whose license plate was released.

To help find them as quickly as possible, police also distributed photos of the two brothers, along with their names and ages.

This is What we Can Expect From The Apple Event on Wednesday: New iPhone and Apple Watch types, as well as AirPods Pro 2

Wednesday is the day. Apple will finally introduce new iPhones and Apple Watches during the event. A new version of the AirPods Pro may also be released. There are a lot of rumours going around. In this article we list the most important ones. But the biggest question at the moment: what will Apple do with the pricing of its new smartphones?

A Change in the line-up

For two years Apple tried it out, but they never caught on. Don’t expect an iPhone 14 Mini this year. According to analysts, the relatively compact 5.4-inch screen models were never really popular.

Instead, rumours point to an iPhone 14 Plus, which will stand alongside the “regular” iPhone 14. This should have a 6.7-inch screen, according to technology journalist Mark Gurman of Bloomberg news agency. In short, an iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro of 6.1 inches as smaller smartphones, with the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max with a screen of 6.7 inches.

Pro smartphones more Pro than ever before

Apple expert journalists expect that there will be more difference between the “normal” and Pro iPhones. For example, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will get a new and faster processor, while the other two new smartphones will not.

Also, those two smartphones will get new selfie cameras. The sensors for FaceID face recognition have been made smaller. As a result, there is no longer a “notch” but rather a pill-shaped cut-out at the top of the screen. This is what specialist website MacRumors writes and is also confirmed by Bloomberg journalist Gurman.



That screen will also have a function to stay on all the time without using too much battery. For example, you will be able to see the time without having to light up your entire smartphone. A feature that of course has been around for a while on Android phones.

At the back of the iPhones Pro, the main camera will almost certainly get a substantial upgrade from 12 megapixels to 48. This will make recording in 8K resolution possible. The other cameras will also get better, but the differences seem to be minor.

Will there be an increase in price?

With the exception of 2018, the cheapest new iPhone according to Apple’s recommended retail price always costs 809 dollars. That year, in addition to the iPhone 8 at that price, Apple also introduced the iPhone X at 1,159 dollars. This not only set the tone for the next five years of design, but also for the price point. It remained stable with the iPhone Xs and also with the Pro models of the last three years.

According to rumours, it’s not just the range of iPhones that will be shaken up, but also the price points. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in August that the average selling price would be 15 per cent higher than last year.

First Known Victims of Canadian Massacre: Mother of Two, Her partner, Bus driver and 77-year-old Widower

Residents have identified some of the victims of the deadly series of stabbings in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. They are said to be mother of two Lana Head, her partner, bus driver Earl Burns Sr. and Wes Petterson, a 77-year-old widower. This is reported by ‘APTN National News’ and the Canadian press agency ‘The Canadian Press News’, among others.


We reported earlier:


In Saskatchewan, two perpetrators carried out a massacre in thirteen different places. At least ten people died and fifteen were injured, according to the police. It is possible, however, that there are more. The suspects are still on the run, and a major manhunt is underway.

On social media, Cassie Constant tells how her uncle is with the fatalities. “My uncle Earl Burns Sr. was a good family man with a good heart and a warm smile. He was also a public school bus driver for many years. He did not deserve this. None of them deserved this,” she wrote alongside a photo of the victim.

Daughters

Michael Brett Burns told ‘APTN National News’ that his ex Lana Head is among those killed. She is the mother of their two daughters. Her male partner did not survive either. Both died in the James Smith Cree Nation reserve. According to the man, the local community is in shock. He himself spent last night at Melfort Hospital comforting fellow sufferers.

Residents of Weldon, another place where the men struck, have identified a victim as Wes Petterson, a 77-year-old widower. His adult grandson was reportedly in the house when the men struck. He is said to have been in the basement and called the police. “He stayed downstairs until they were gone,” said local resident Robert Rush. He described the victim as a friendly seventy-something who had lost his wife. “He didn’t hurt a fly,” he responded.

Another resident, Ruby Works, says the same. According to her, the old man was like an uncle to her. “I collapsed and fell to the ground when I heard the news. I have known him since I was a little girl,” she says of the moment she heard the news. According to the woman, the seventy-year-old loved his cats, was proud of his homemade berry jam and was always ready to help his neighbours. “He did nothing wrong,” she says. “He didn’t deserve this. He was a good, kind-hearted man.”
