MINI Paceman: The Goldilocks MINI

1963 Austin Mini Cooper S Who would have thought that when the “new” Mini came around in 2001 that a decade and some change later we would have twenty or so models with three more on the way?  Taking a look back, it kind of makes sense.  The original incarnation of the Mini brand saw many variations of the iconic hatchback, some good, like the 1963 Austin Mini Cooper S; some bad, like the Mini Pick-Up; and some just plain...

2013 Mini John Cooper Works GP…The GP Is Back.

2012 Mini John Cooper Works GP This just in from the worst kept secret department…Mini has just announced version 2.0 of their famed GP in a limited production run of 2000 units.  Back in 2006, because they were installing their John Cooper Works options in the factory instead of in the dealerships, Mini had the idea to take the JCW to a higher and limited production level and produce the 2006 Mini Cooper GP.  That GP had the...

Taking to the Track with Cadillac’s Two Big Dogs, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V and 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. While Top Gear frequently refers (or should I say referred) to itself as a “poky little motoring show,” they did so with the utmost irony as they are, in fact, the yardstick by which all other motoring media are measured.
