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...

Nissan Bladeglider Concept Revealed Prior to Tokyo Debut

The Nissan Bladeglider Concept is exactly the car every kid growing up in the 1990s hoped the future would bring.  Sharing the same wide rear and very narrow front track set-up as the revolutionary Nissan Delta Wing racer that made waves in the Le Mans Series this year, the Bladeglider is the first truly reinvented car in a long, long time. Set to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in a few weeks, the Nissan Bladeglider Concept is a...

Caterham Bikes: Caterham Goes Two-Wheeling

Caterham makes some of the most nimble cars on the planet.  Quick in the corners with great acceleration, they may be as close to a four-wheel motorcycle as you can get.  So, I have high hopes the new Caterham Bikes motorcycle division the brand recently announced will be just as awesome. Caterham revealed prototypes from their new line of motorcycles and e-bikes at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this week.  Run by Al-Ishsal Ishak...

Chevrolet SEMA Concepts: Bowtie Goes Tuner

Chevrolet already spilled the beans about their Silverado Black Ops and Volunteer Firefighter concepts for SEMA this year.  Those will definitely catch the eyes of the off-road and are-you-seriously-going-to-drive-that-on-the-road-it’ll-eat-a-Smart-Car truck crowd.  But, what is the Bowtie company planning for the tuner crowd, the people more interested in offerings like Hyundai’s Fox Marketing Veloster Turbo?  How about...

McLaren P1: Full Performance Specs on McLaren’s Hypercar

Earlier this week, Lamborghini unveiled the Veneno Roadster.  And, today, McLaren has finally given us the full specs on the McLaren P1, just as the first P1 (in exposed carbon fiber and Volcano yellow, of course) was picked up by some lucky, lucky guy in the U.K. directly from the McLaren Technology Centre.  It’s been a good week for hypercars.

MINI Countryman and MINI Paceman in Frozen Black: MINI Goes Matte

Matte paint has been all the rage for a few years now.  Not surprising, since a well-done matte finish looks great and can make an already pulchritudinous (word of the day app) car even better.  Several years ago, BMW was at the vanguard of the matte finish trend and has been offering “Frozen” editions of their cars for some time now, albeit in very limited numbers. As the latest member of the BMW Group to hop on the matte...

[Video] Porsche 918 Spyder Sets a Nurburgring Record

As if people needed another reason to want the ultra-fast $845,000 Porsche 918 Spyder.  I mean, sheesh.  The 918 Spyder already accelerates from 0-60 in about 2.6 seconds.  It’ll top out at 214 mph.  And, it’s the best looking Porsche in two or three decades, all-the-while being as kind to Mother Earth as a big fluffy bunny.  But apparently all that wasn’t good enough.  Porsche decided the 918 Spyder hybrid needs to...
