[Video] BMW M4 Coupe Concept: I’ll Take Mine in Blue Please…

Lovely.  The BMW M4 Coupe Concept is truly lovely.  Apart from the weird metallic yellow paint, that is.  Revealed during Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the BMW M4 represents the latest BMW’s M Division creation, and it… is… stunning.  It makes it almost okay that the M3 Coupe is no more, replaced by this numerically superior sibling. So, what do we know about it?  Aside from the fact that it looks a lot...

[Update: Price] BMW i8: The Full Skinny on BMW’s Super Green Supercar

The BMW i8 scares me.  I’ll tell you why.  It has all the earmarks of a great, groundbreaking sports car.  With its hybrid eDrive, LifeDrive architecture and carbon fiber reinforced plastic bits, it looks fantastic on paper.  When I drive it, I’ll have very high expectations.  And, whenever I have high expectations, I’m a bit nervous for the reality.  I’ve been bitten before.  But, until my rump settles in...

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend Jean-Pierre Wimille to Debut at Pebble Beach

Bugatti is big on limited edition versions of the Veyron.  I’m okay with that since they’re, more often than not, pretty cool variations on the car, albeit a bit gaudy on occasion (I’m looking at you Veyron L’Or Blanc).  Their latest limited Veyron is actually a series of limited Veyrons, Les Légendes de Bugatti, which pay homage to six key figures from the annals of Bugatti’s history. The first of the...

Audi Fleet Shuttle Quattro Virtual Car in Ender’s Game [Video] [Update]

Audi has made quite a name for itself putting their cars, real and conceptual, in blockbuster movies. In the Ironman franchise, Tony Stark’s R8 is the second coolest piece of hardware in the movie.  iRobot featured a futuristic Audi RSQ that gave us a pretty good idea of where Audi was headed design-wise.  Their latest big-screen partnership is with the new Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford flick Ender’s Game. This time,...

Porsche Honors 5 Million Facebook Fans with Crowdsourced 911 Carrera S

Back in 2011, Porsche hit one million Facebook fans, achieving that milestone faster than any other automotive brand out there.  To celebrate, they wrapped a 911 GT3-R Hybrid with the names of all million Facebook followers.  I saw the car at a few auto shows, and it was pretty cool and very, very, very savvy social media-wise.  They all but guaranteed another million fans just by wrapping that 911. Which they got.  In 2012, to...

Acura NSX Prototype Laps Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

We’ve been waiting for the new Acura NSX for a long time.  Some have been waiting with baited breath since the original NSX’s swansong in 2005.  Acura’s concept NSX dropped its silks on January 9, 2012 at the North American Auto Show after years of hints, teases and false-starts.  Finally, just before the Honda Indy 200 race, the prototype Acura NSX lapped the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.  On the...

Cadillac’s 420 HP Twin-Turbo V6 Puts an End to Turbo Lag [Video]

Turbo lag is easily the biggest problem with traditional turbocharged engines.  In some cases, it’s downright dangerous.  I remember one time, the passenger of a 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo, a 996 to be precise, attempting to merge from the George Washington Memorial Parkway onto the 14th Street Bridge in downtown DC.  Those familiar with that particular interchange can already see where I’m going.  But, for those who...

Bentley Greelights SUV for 2016

It’s been a busy few weeks for the UK.  Internet censorship laws, royal babies, a new book by J.K Rowling and now a confirmed SUV from Bentley.  Yep, after years of yays and nays Bentley finally officially green-lit the the British mega-lux off-roader.  I use that term loosely since it’s unlikely many Bentley SUVs will see anything other than tarmac and the occasional grass of a polo ground. Set for a 2016 release, Bentley...
