Aston Martin have unveiled how luxury cars of the future will look and they will run purely on electric. The British firm aim to have two new models, under the Lagonda badge, by 2023. They say they will be the first luxury brand to offer purely an EV line with full autonomous technology. The ‘Vision Concept’ will begin production in 2021 and be powered by solid-state batteries under the floor with an electric motor for each of the four wheels. Range will be an expected 400 miles.
Never meet your heroes they say, and for any petrol head it’s hard not to get star stuck by the McLaren 570S Spider. There is one sitting on my driveway as I watch Top Gear's Chris Harris singing its praises as he blasts around America's deep south. And after driving it for a weekend I can confirm that it has classic supermodel traits - being expensive, volatile and demanding. But you soon forgive all that when it is also beautiful, exhilarating and unearthly.
Most buyers considering purchasing a BMW M240i are probably asking themselves two questions. Can I afford a BMW M2 and how different is it? I doubt many of them are thinking of getting a 230i with its four-cylinder 2 litre engine and then speccing up a level. The M2 is one of BMW's halo cars that has garnered universal praise since its launch in 2016. But take a close look at the 240i and some of the M2 daydreaming begins to wane.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
