[Video] 2014 Audi RS7 Starts at $104,900

Let’s just get this out of the way right from the start.  I want this car.  I want a 2014 Audi RS7 with every fiber of my being and some leftover fibers I took from someone else’s being.  If I can’t have one (and at a starting price of $104,900 I probably can’t) I want to drive one.  On a road.  On a track.  In a parking lot.  It doesn’t really matter.  In short, I like the RS7. The 2014 Audi RS7...

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...

Lamborghini Gallardo, the LP 570-4 Squadra Corse: The Latest Lambo [Update: Video, Price and Specs]

Just what we need… another Lamborghini Gallardo.  Or, at least that’s what I thought until I looked at the specs of this particular Lamborghini Gallardo, the LP 570-4 Squadra Corse.  Then I realized Lamborghini has already made this car.  It just has a different, impossibly-long name, the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Tecnica. To date the Superleggera Edizione Tecnica is the baddest baby Lambo with its scads of...

McLaren 12C GT Sprint, Sin R1 and Bluebird DC50: Three New Cars I Really Want but Will Never Have [Video]

My last two posts have been on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC and the MINI Getaway Cars, cars that share a common theme… I will probably never have them.  To continue that theme and to twist the knife a bit deeper into my gut, I present to you three more cars into whose drivers’ seats my rump will never settle: the track-star McLaren 12C GT Sprint, the enigmatic and blazingly fast Sin R1 supercar and the...

Radical RXC: Very Light. Very Fast. Very Fun. Very New. [Video]

  On August 19, 2009, Radical set the Nurburgring lap record for production cars with a 6:48 in an SR8 LM driven by Michael Vergers.  The regular SR8 lapped the ‘Ring in 6:55.  Radical Sportcars went from founded (in 1997) to setting records on the Nurburgring in only twelve years.  And, now there’s a new addition to the stable… the Radical RXC.  And, it definitely lives up to the family name. Starting with a...

[VIDEO] Trans Am Depot’s 2014 6T9 GTO Judge

It was a sad day when the Pontiac badge was retired.  With cars like the G8 GXP, they were just starting to build up some of their former steam.  Too little, too late, unfortunately.  Thankfully, tuning house Trans Am Depot has picked up the slack, resurrecting Pontiac best nameplates.  If Pontiac built cars like these, maybe they’d still be around. Using the Chevy Camaro as a base, Trans Am Depot has created some kick-ass...

2014 Corvette Stingray: 0-60 in 3.8 Seconds and 1.03 g Cornering [Video]

Way back in January when the 2014 Corvette Stingray debuted, Chevrolet promised it would be the best performing standard Corvette yet.  Then in April when Chevy announced the Stingray’s $51,995 price tag, they hinted at a sub-4 second 0-60 and cornering better than 1 g.  Our last hint at the Corvette Stingray’s performance came in May when we learned of the LT1 6.2 liter V8 and its 460 horses and 465 pound-feet of torque...
