2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition [Los Angeles Auto Show]

Nothing says goodbye to a supercar like an over-the-top limited edition.  I guess that’s why Mercedes-Benz will be saying auf wiedersehen to the range-topping SLS AMG with the limited 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition.   Limited to only 350 units of both coupe and roadster versions, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition isn’t the most bonkers variant of the SLS AMG — that would be the 622 hp...

2015 Subaru WRX Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Subaru has officially won the road-going rally-car war.  With Mitsubishi retiring the Lancer Evolution after the Evo X’s run is finished, the Subaru WRX (and WRX STI) is the undisputed king of the hill.  So, think of the new 2015 Subaru WRX just unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a victory lap. It seems almost sad the the best Subaru WRX thus far is losing its sparring buddy.  But, be that as it may, the 2015 Subaru WRX...

BMW M235i Racing: Bimmer’s New Factory Racer

At 322 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque, the 2014 BMW M235i is already a lot of car.  Most people would be more than happy with its 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds.  But, the BMW M235i isn’t for most people.  It’s for those who think the best days are track days and the best track car is a BMW.   BMW took the 2 Series and stripped out pretty much everything an amateur or semi-pro racer wouldn’t need.  The BMW...

2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo Is in a League of Its Own

As if the Nissan GT-R Track Edition wasn’t enough of an insane supercar, Nissan has just lifted the silks on an even more bonkers version of the GT-R, the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo.  And, it is in a league of its own.  Basically, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is a GT3-inspired version of the normal GT-R.   Power for the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo is a massive 600 horse (up 55 hp from the standard car), and torque is “over 480...

2014 Porsche Macan Finally Revealed [Los Angeles Auto Show]

On this site, I try really, really hard not to be incredibly cheesy.  It’s an uphill battle, I know, one I frequently lose in spectacular fashion.  But, when talking about the 2014 Porsche Macan that just debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, I won’t even try.  Because, (true to cheesy form) I keep imagining Porsche execs in Stuttgart working on the Macan over the past several years chanting: “I think Macan, I think...

The Jaguar F-Type Coupe Is Stunning… and Fast [Los Angeles Auto Show]

The world debut of the Jaguar F-Type Coupe is happening at the Los Angeles Auto Show right now, as we speak.  But, thanks to a preview party yesterday and the car’s presence at the Tokyo Motor Show we have some great photos and amazing specs, including those of the model’s headliner, the F-Type R Coupe with a 550 horse, 5-liter supercharged V8 with a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds and a limited top speed of 186 mph.

2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop: The New MINI Debuts in Oxford (Updated: Price)

So, there is a new MINI Cooper Hardtop, the third generation since the brand’s resurrection twelve years ago.  Only now, instead of just calling the two-door hatchback the Cooper (or Cooper S) Hardtop, MINI has taken to calling it the MINI Cooper Original.  Catchy name, but does this latest MINI Cooper have any resemblance at all to the true original Mini, the one that changed the motoring world in 1959?   Back in the...

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...

2014 Cadillac ELR Saks Fifth Avenue Edition: It’s a Saks Cadillac Christmas

For the past 115 years, Saks Fifth Avenue has been a store where people of means go to shop for clothes, jewelry and $30,000 purses… you know, the essentials.  Odds are if you want the fanciest, most expensive version of something, odds are Saks has it or could get it for you.  That fact is even more true come the Christmas shopping season when the iconic New York department store releases the annual Saks Holiday Catalog full of...

Listen to the Porsche Macan before Its LA Debut

More proof that the new Porsche Macan CUV won’t be your garden variety small CUV.  Porsche is all set to debut the Macan at the Los Angeles Auto Show in about a week and a half, but they were kind enough to release this video (more of an audio laid over an image of the Porsche Macan’s exhaust tip) of the CUV’s raucous exhaust note.   The Porsche Macan will come with one of two engine choices, a 3.0 liter V6 or a...
