2014 BMW 2 Series: Bimmer Doubles Down [Video]

The BMW 1 Series is dead.  Long live the BMW 2 Series.  I have mixed feelings about that statement.  Drive-wise, I was fan of the 1 Series, especially the 135i.  It was an incredibly fun car to throw around… tight, nimble and quick as the dickens.  Looks-wise, it wasn’t the loveliest of cars.  As a matter of fact, it looked like it had a potbelly.  So, as long as the 2014 BMW 2 Series drives as well (or better) as the...

Audi A5 DTM Champion Edition

The German DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) Touring Car Championship boasts some of the most extreme versions of road cars Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have to offer.  The DTM cars are sort of like German road cars on über-steroids.  And, this year, Audi and driver Mike “Rocky” Rockenfeller won the driver’s title in a car kinda related to an Audi RS5. In honor of this win, Audi is offering the DTM Champion edition...

Nismo Watch Concept: A Nissan GT-R for Your Wrist [Video]

Watches and cars go very well together.  So well, in fact, that I started a watch and car blog.  There have been a lot of watch and car combos over the years.  TAG Heuer and Mercedes.  Hublot and Ferrari.  Hublot and Senna.  Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari.  Oris and RAID Suisse-Paris Rally.  Breitling and Bentley.   The list goes on and on, but, they all have one thing in common.  They are watches with car themes.  Apart from a few...

Audi A3 and S3 Cabriolet: 2 Less Doors and One Less Roof on the Baby Audi [Video]

I really liked the Audi A3 and S3 Sedans when they debuted last March.  They have a good engine line-up.  They’re better looking than the BMW 1 Series.  And, they should have a pretty good rivalry with the Mercedes-Benz CLA.  But now that Audi has unveiled the drop-top version of their little car, the Audi A3 Cabriolet, I’m just sort of “meh.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s a great car. ...

Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo "iBusiness": A Rolling Office That Will Roll at 217 MPH

I find it poetic that I should be writing about the behemouth known as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class-based Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo “iBusiness” today.  And, I’ll tell you why.  As I was driving down I-95 today up near Palm Beach, I passed what may be the most ridiculous car a tuning company as every put forth, a 120 horse Brabus Ultimate 120 Smart Car.  While 120 horse out of a Smart ForTwo is impressive, I am much more...

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...

Volvo Using Australia as a Test for More Polestar Models?

Australia seems to be the place to go if you want some serious cars.  They already have the Holden Special Vehicles Gen-F and the 250 horse Volvo S60 T5.  But now, according to Autoblog.com and Drive.com.au, Volvo Australia chief Matt Braid and Polestar Managing Director Hans Baath are using Oz as a test market for the high-performance S60 Polestar and (potentially) other future Polestar models.  We got a close look at the S60...
