2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC: The Big Merc with Serious Speed

In the words of Bartok the Bat, “Wow.  I tell you what, wow.”  Mercedes-Benz has just lifted the silks on the latest and greatest iteration of their super-sedan, the 2014 S63 AMG 4MATIC.  And, wow.  With 577 horses 664 pound-feet of toque on tap from the hand-built 5.5 liter twin-turbo V8 with direct injection and an air-to-water intercooler, this bad mamajama has power to spare.  Engine output is up 41 hp and 74 lb-ft...

VUHL 05: Track Day Car Born in Mexico City, Powered by Detroit and Unveiled in London

Don’t confuse VUHL with Zuul.  Zuul is the gatekeeper of Gozer The Destructor from Ghostbusters.  VUHL (pronounced “vool”) stands for Vehicles of Ultra High-Performance and Lighweight.  I think that may be pushing the whole acronym thing a bit.  In any case, they are the Mexico-based maker of the new VUHL 05 supercar.  You may recognize the name.  They’ve been dropping hints about the VUHL 05 for a few months...

Garmin HUD Brings Head-Up Display to Any Car

More and more cars are adding Head-Up Displays (HUDs) to their cars.  For example, I’m a huge fan of the HUD in the Cadillac XTS.  There is an undeniable usefulness to having all of your needed info projected onto the windshield directly in your line-of-sight.  But, HUDs tend to come in pricier cars, like the big Caddy.  This poses a bit of a roadblock to those who want a useful HUD but don’t have $60 grand to spend on a...

Innotech Aspiron: Trackday Car with the Heart of a Corvette

The name Innotech may ring a bell.  No, it’s not the company from Office Space, that’s Initech and Initrode (damn Initrode).  It’s a Corvette tuning house that also happens to make supercars with Corvette hearts like the 800 horse 2010 Innotech Escalero.  Their latest project, the 2014 Innotech Aspiron is one part Corvette and one part Tramontana-style trackday chassis.  Innotech takes pretty much whatever Corvette...
