The New Issue is out now!

Sustainability is no longer an abstract concept. Of late, it has become a priority on all levels both in terms of policy choices and production options. The automotive world has led the way, investing monstrous amounts of energy into driving mobility towards an electric-only goal. We are living through the dawn of a genuine revolution which will quickly spread to the boat world. It is an epoch-changing switch. Very shortly, the story of the internal combustion engine which has dominated the scene for over a century and a half will be completely rewritten. But make no mistake about it: this won’t just involve espousing a green philosophy. The advent of the electric car will change the way we live in every way and how we experience our cars. Consequently, the way we live car journeys will be different too. Battery technology is evolving rapidly (just think of the results being delivered by Volvo Cars) and the packs themselves are getting smaller and more compact all the time, freeing up more and more space for occupants. All of this, I am convinced, will have a major impact on design and change the look of cars and, then in the not-too-distant future, yachts too. Our Top Cars and Yachts special inside this issue shines the spotlight on the many different points of contact that are strengthening the bond between the auto sector and our own. One of the most spectacular results of this cross-fertilisation is the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, the cover story in our last issue, which we return to with Lamborghini’s chief designer Mitja Borkert. But that’s only the start of it: buckle up, it’s going to be a heck of a ride!
