Ferrari California T: A Turbo Droptop from Maranello (Video)

Maranello’s turbo-charged Ferrari California T may very well be the belle of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show ball.  Announced in February and just unveiled in Geneva, the Ferrari California T is one awesome droptop.   Ever since the Ferrari California first hit the streets in 2008, I’ve had the opinion that the 2+2 grand tourer is a bit half-assed.  The 3,600 pound, 454 horse California was fairly powerful and had decent...

Koenigsegg Agera One:1 Brings 1,341 hp to the Table

There can be only One… er… I mean There can be only One:1.  And, when that only one is the Koenigsegg Agera One:1, one is all one needs.  Phew… that’s a lot one ones.  Now that the witty (yes, I’m going with witty) world play is out of the way, I can fully explain why the Koenigsegg Agera One:1 is quite possibly the most incredible road car ever created.   The Koenigsegg car company is turning 20...

Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4: Yep, It’s the New Baby Lambo [Video]

The brands spankin’ new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is here.  And, it’s fast.  Like really fast.  Like 3.2 seconds 0-62 mph (~3.0 seconds 0-60 mph), 202 mph top speed fast.  I guess after the leaked photos from yesterday, Lamborghini needed to accelerate their reveal of the replacement for the venerated-but-long-in-the-tooth Gallardo.   The Lamborghini Gallardo came out in 2003 and, as such, is filled with old tech. ...

Volvo V60 Polestar: Not Your Ordinary Wagon

Any thought of a boring, soccer-mom Volvo is left if the dust behind the Volvo V60 Polestar.  This is a seriously quick and seriously nimble wagon.  Powered by a 350 horse and 369 pound-feet 3.0 liter, turbocharged, inline six-cylinder the Volvo V60 Polestar can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.7 seconds (0-62 in 4.9 seconds) thanks to a six-speed automatic trans and Haldex all-wheel-drive system.  Top speed is a limited 155...

McLaren P1: Full Performance Specs on McLaren’s Hypercar

Earlier this week, Lamborghini unveiled the Veneno Roadster.  And, today, McLaren has finally given us the full specs on the McLaren P1, just as the first P1 (in exposed carbon fiber and Volcano yellow, of course) was picked up by some lucky, lucky guy in the U.K. directly from the McLaren Technology Centre.  It’s been a good week for hypercars. With a total of 903 hybrid horses from a 727 horse, 3.8 liter, twin-turbo V8 and a...

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...

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...

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...
