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...

Magnum MK5 Public Debut and We Talk with Bruno St-Jacques

You may remember back in November, we told you about a new track-day monster called Magnum MK5.  You may also remember that it hails from Canada.  I know what you’re thinking, and yes, Canada does have more than just hockey and curling.  The little speed demon has just made its public debut at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance duPont Registry Live Hangar Party shin-dig.  We were there to get up close and personal with the...

McLaren 650S to make US debut during the 2014 New York Auto Show] I know one thing for sure.  McLaren makes a kick-ass car.  The MP4-12C is probably the best car available under $300,000.  And, the McLaren P1 is nothing short of extraordinary, both in terms of performance and styling.  But, now… now there’s another...

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...

Magnum MK5: Canada’s Street-Legal Track Car [Pricing]

There is nothing polite about Canada’s new track-day car, the Magnum MK5.  In a realm dominated by names like Ariel, Caterham, and Radical, Magnum is elbowing their way in to make their mark in a market with very, very selective customers.   Magnum has made a name for themselves making open-wheel formula racers for drives like Gilles Villeneuve, so they certainly know how to make a car that goes fast.  They put all of that...

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...

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster: Scary Loses Its Top

$4.5 million. 2.9 seconds 0-62 mph.  Top speed of 221 mph.  Only nine examples to be produced.  The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is super expensive, super fast and super rare.  With those figures and those looks, I don’t need to say much more about the Veneno Roadster.  But I will anyway, because, if anything, the details make this topless version of the most bonkers Lambo ever produced even more desirable. The Lamborghini Veneno...
