Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept: An Off-Road R8?

The Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept is a badass lookking car.  I rather like it.  I also liked it last March when it was called the ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour.  One cannot deny the similarities between the two.  Both use big V10, both produce about 550 horse and both will run from 0-60 in less than four seconds.  But, like I said: I like the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept all the same. Audi unveiled the Nanuk Quattro Concept during the...

For example this Carbon Black “production-intent” McLaren P1 that is so breathtakingly rendered in these photos has recently been put through its paces in extreme...

Volvo Concept Coupé: The Reincarnation of the P1800?

Calling something the “next generation P1800” is no small boast.  The original Volvo P1800 that ran for twelve years from 1961 to 1973 is easily the most iconic (and beautiful) Volvo ever produced.  The spy car of choice for Roger Moore’s character Simon Templar in The Saint, the P1800 combined power, looks and a grace never before seen from the Swedish carmaker. Volvo is looking to rekindle some of those same...

BMW X5 M50d: Intriguing and Loaded with Torque

I’ve never owned a diesel.  I have nothing against them.  I’ve just never found a diesel that I could see myself driving every day… not one I could afford, anyway.  But, the new BMW X5 M50d could change that.  Actually, no, I probably can’t afford this car either, but it’s still seems like something to be desired. The third generation and latest iteration of the BMW X5 is slated to reach showroom floors...

[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...

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...

BMW i3 Gets a Global Debut

After concepts, spy-shots, camo-that’s-barely-more-than-a-bikini photos, technical releases and a lot of waiting, BMW has finally debuted the i3 to global fanfare with simultaneous unveilings in New York, London and Beijing.  And, it’s finally a car that I can actually afford that is actually as cool as its concept. The BMW i3 will hit showroom floors in three trim levels, Mega (the standard US trim), Giga and Tera,...
