Aznom Palladium interior teaser

Promising the best in craftsmanship Italy has to offer.

So far, 2020 has been full of (mostly unpleasant) surprises. The world hasn’t stopped spinning, however, so it’s time for yet another one and, fortunately, this time it is shaping up to be an interesting one. It comes from Italy and the Monza-based Aznom Automotive company.

We first heard about Aznom’s upcoming Palladium in late September when the model’s first teaser images were released. Today, we can share two more teasers providing a sneak peek at the cabin of the world’s first “hyper limousine.”

No, that’s not a term we’ve invented but how the automaker itself describes its new product. More precisely, as Aznom says, this is what the model is “known by people in the business,” and it turns out it is almost ready for its big debut later this month. Currently, the Italian team is putting the finishing touches on the interior and is conducting final tests and evaluations on public roads in Northern Italy.

So far, there are just two sketches of the interior but Aznom says “the high value of the design is immediately recognizable and the quality of the material used is extremely refined.” We are yet to see the final product and won’t rush with our conclusions but the rear passenger area features two reclining seats and a refrigerated compartment, plus a few drawers.

Deep-pocketed customers will be happy to learn that Aznom plans to discuss every possible surface and material with the client before a final order is made. Thanks to “the best suppliers and the most

Land Rover Defender review – Interior, design and technology

Land Rover has done a great job in bringing the Defender into the 21st century. There’s a little nod to the previous model in terms of the overall look, but make no mistake – this new 4×4 is most definitely at the cutting edge in terms of off-road ability and on-board tech.

The proportions are clearly Defender-like, but everything is bigger, chunkier and designed with function clearly in mind. Inside, there are exposed screw heads, powder-coated aluminium surfaces, a magnesium bulkhead and even strips of body-coloured metal. While it’s not the usual Land Rover level of luxury, it brings a unique and refined rawness to the cabin that is as cool as anything else on sale.

Standard equipment across the range includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated seats and power-folding door mirrors. Stepping up to S trim adds 19-inch wheels and upgraded upholstery, while SE and HSE cars feature luxuries such as a premium 400w Meridian audio system with ten speakers, additional leather trim in the cabin and a sliding panoramic roof. 

The top-spec X equipment line stands out from the crowd by offering a black-coloured roof and bonnet, Windsor leather seats, a 700w version of the Meridian sound system with an additional four speakers and a head-up display.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

The 10-inch touchscreen is the slickest we’ve yet seen from JLR. The new Pivi Pro system allows over-the-air software updates and the latest Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. 

In addition to the infotainment set-up, entry-level Defenders feature Land Rover’s Connected Navigation Pro, a 180W audio system with six speakers and an online pack with data plan.

Belarus police will fire on protesters if necessary, says deputy interior minister | World news

Security forces in Belarus could fire on protesters if they deem it necessary, a minister has warned, as EU foreign ministers agreed to impose sanctions personally targeting President Alexander Lukashenko.

Gennady Kazakevich, the first deputy interior minister, said in a video statement: “We will not leave the streets, and law enforcement officers and internal troops if necessary will use riot control equipment and lethal weapons.”

The statement was the first time the authorities have explicitly threatened to use firearms against opposition demonstrators and would mark a major escalation in the two-month standoff between Lukashenko and protesters, who have staged peaceful rallies against his disputed re-election in August and against the abuse and torture of detainees.

The warning came after security forces cracked down harshly on anti-Lukashenko protests on Sunday, prompting EU foreign ministers to agree it was time to sanction Lukashenko himself.

Late on Monday, officers used tear gas and stun grenades against a group of older people holding a regular protest march, prompting outrage from the opposition.

The protests broke out when Lukashenko claimed victory in elections held on 9 August that are widely regarded as rigged. Popular opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who claims to be the true winner, has been based in Lithuania since she was forced to flee after being threatened in a conversation with officials the night after the election.

In Belarus, police have so far acknowledged using water cannon, rubber bullets and stun grenades to disperse the protesters.

Kazakevich claimed that protests had become “extremely radical”, saying stones and bottles were thrown at police on Sunday by protesters armed with knives, who built barricades and set fire to tyres. “This has nothing in common with civil protest,” the deputy minister said, claiming that “groups of fighters, radicals, anarchists and football fans” were taking part.


Mumbai Crime: Police constable booked for raping, cheating interior designer from Ghatkopar

The Mumbai police on Thursday registered an FIR against a 42-year-old police constable for allegedly raping and cheating a Ghatkopar-based interior designer. The incident came to light after the police received a written application that the accused had sexually assaulted the 40-year-old complainant on multiple occasions on the pretext of marrying her.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, senior inspector Suhas Kamble from Pant Nagar police station said, “We have registered the offence and are investigating the matter. The accused has not been arrested yet.”

Nearly a year ago, when the complainant delivered his child, the constable told her that he was already married. He also said that he could not marry her because if he did, the police department would sack him for consummating two marriages. In her complaint, the woman claimed that the accused told her that he would divorce his wife and marry her, but didn’t do so.

The woman alleged that the constable asked her not to disclose to anyone that the child is his and that it was a test tube baby. It was then that the woman approached the police. Police officials said that the constable also holds a post in Brihanmumbai Police Karmchari Pagardar Sahakari Patsanstha.

In her written statement to the police, the complainant said that she met the accused in 1998 while working at a private company in Andheri. Over time their friendship turned into love and he promised her that he would marry her.

“He also introduced her to two developers and asked her to undertake their interior decoration work. The accused used her expertise as a designer and earned money but didn’t pay her anything.” the complaint stated. The victim further alleged that the accused took money

Argentina surpasses 900,000 COVID-19 cases, virus spreads to the interior

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Argentina surpassed 900,000 cases of coronavirus on Monday, with strong growth of infections in large populated centers in the interior of the country after months of the virus’ being concentrated in Buenos Aires and its suburbs.

The government late last week tightened restrictions on the movement of people in 18 provinces for two weeks due to the growth of COVID-19 cases. On Monday, the Health Ministry said the death toll reached 24,186 and the number of infections totaled 903,730. During the previous 24 hours, 318 deaths and 9,524 new cases were reported.

As an example of the virus’ spreading outside of Buenos Aires, in areas untouched by the virus in the early days of the pandemic, more than 90% of the intensive-care beds at the Centenario hospital in the city of Rosario, 300 kilometers north of Buenos Aires, are occupied by COVID-19 patients, hospital staff told Reuters.

Rosario is the main ports hub carrying agricultural commodities from the Pampas farm belt to export markets. Argentina is a major global soybean, corn and wheat supplier.

“Hopefully we continue as we are, with 95% to 97% occupancy (of ICU beds) and that narrow margin will allow us to have a reasonable turn-over of beds,” Rosario intensive care doctor Juan Pendino, 62, told Reuters.

Over the last week Argentina registered almost 100,000 new cases, with a positive rate of 72.5% as of Sunday, one of the highest levels in the world.

“We are not going to have normalcy again – neither in the short- nor medium-term – until we have a high rate of immunization of the population, either naturally or through a vaccine,”
