BMW Debuts the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

BMW has a tendency to debut stunning one-off cars at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on the shore of Lake Como in Italy.  Last year it was the BMW Zagato Coupe.  This year, BMW partnered for the first time with Pinifarina to create the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe, a huge front engine V12 that looks a bit like a 7-Series Gran Turismo and not like a modern incarnation of the BMW 8-Series we were all hoping for. ...

BMW Teases the Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe Bound for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

BMW and Pininfarina are at it again.  The last time those two brands teamed up, we were treated to the BMW Zagato Coupé.  Up next, at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW will debut the Pininfarina-designed Gran Lusso Coupé.    Judging from these teaser photos and press blur, the Gran Lusso Coupé is a long, low coupe powered by a V12.  Sounds like a 21st Century incarnation of the BMW 8 Series (which happens to...

How Much Car Can I Afford? How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway?

How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway? We all want a nice car. I mean, who doesn’t want a Rolls Royce or a BMW or a McLaren in their driveway? Hell, at about $35,000 a MINI Cooper John Cooper Works and Subaru WRX STI are lofty goals in their own rights. But, that begs the question, just how much car can you afford? Or, put another way, how much money do you need to make to buy that new BMW M4?...

2016 Cadillac CTS-V and ATS-V Track Test Review Taking to the Track with Cadillac's Two Big Dogs

TickTickVroom is in reality a poky little motoring blog. So, when we get invited to do something...

Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake The Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake is officially the first performance install for my little-ole 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. And, thus far, I’m quite happy with it. Like I said in my first build post, while I’ve done pretty much every repair you can imagine on a car, this is my first real performance wrenching. So, I decided to start with an easy upgrade that may...
