2014 Maserati Ghibli Debuts in Shanghai

Eleven days ago, Maserati “leaked” some photos of the 2014 Ghibli.  Today, they’ve officially debuted the middle-Maser at the Shanghai Motor Show.  Maserati hopes to sell a total of 50,000 cars annually and wants the Ghibli to play a big part as a competitor the Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Cadillac CTS and Jaguar XF.  The only problem, it still looks like an Infiniti Q50.

Ferrari California T: A Turbo Droptop from Maranello (Video)

Maranello’s turbo-charged Ferrari California T may very well be the belle of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show ball.  Announced in February and just unveiled in Geneva, the Ferrari California T is one awesome droptop.   Ever since the Ferrari California first hit the streets in 2008, I’ve had the opinion that the 2+2 grand tourer is a bit half-assed.  The 3,600 pound, 454 horse California was fairly powerful and had decent...

2013 Year in Review… Cliche, Isn’t It…

So, not only did we survive December 21st, 2012, we’ve made it all the way through 2013.  HA!  Take that Mayans!  Now that it’s 2014 (2014, weird, isn’t it?), I thought I’d do the most cliché thing blog-ily possible.  This is a TickTickVroom.com 2013 Year in Review post.   2013 was a banner year for TTV… a new, fancy-schmancy website, a bunch of cool road and track tests (sooooo much fun) and some...

Horsepower to Reindeer Power Conversion

Back for the holidays is the TickTickVroom.com exclusive Horsepower to Reindeer Power conversion. Of all the methods of transport that exist, it must be argued that Santa Claus’s sleigh and eight flying reindeer rank among the coolest and fastest out there (He does make it around the world in one night including several stops, after all).  So, with Christmas and Santa’s annual trek coming up on Wednesday, it got me...

2014 Fiat 500L: Around the Block Road Test Review [Driven]

There is something decidedly Italian about the 2014 500L, not Ferrari, Maserati or Lamborghini Italian, but grabbing a fresh loaf of Filone di Renella on the way to Gucci to pick up a new pair of loafers Italian.  It’s a bit more Italian than its closest competitor, the MINI Countryman is British.  Allow me to elaborate…   I recently had the opportunity to take the 2014 Fiat 500L for a spin Around the Block for a...

Introducing the Alfa Romeo 4C: Great Car but the Headlights Look Like Spider Eyes…

Ignore the spider-eye-looking headlights, and the brand new Alfa Romeo 4C is a beautiful car with great performance.  No flowery words here, just a few bullet points from Alfa on the 4C that give the best picture of the Alfa Romeo 4C.
