Audi RS7 Piloted: Driverless Audi at Hockenheim Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line

Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line We already know the $104,900 (base MSRP) Audi RS7 is the biggest beast among all other beastly super-sedans. With its 4.0-liter, 560 horsepower, 516 pound-feet twin-turbocharged V8 powering all four wheels through a Audi’s bullet-proof Quattro AWD system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the Audi RS7 Sportback will power from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 3.7...

Chevrolet pulled the wraps from the eagerly [read: impatiently] awaited 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 a few months ago in Detroit and the equally spec’d...

2015 Ford Mustang Specs – GT Gets 435 HP

Not to be outdone by Dodge and their obscene 707 horse Challenger SRT Hellcat, Ford has just release their own muscle car news.  Of course, I have to be referring to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and its more-than-respectable-in-fact-its-downright-great 5.0-liter V8 churning out 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.  By the way, that’s 20 more horse than a 996 Porsche 911 Turbo.  Food for thought.   Not to be outdone by...

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Quarter-Mile, HP, Price, Top Speed

Soooooooo… The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat… Um, yeah.  I’m not entirely sure what else to say about this car other than it’s fast (very, very, very fast) and powerful (very, very, very powerful).  After its flabbergasting power, everything else seems trivial.  We first wrote about the Challenger SRT Hellcat in May, mentioning Dodge’s claim of over 600 horse for this latest of Detroit muscle cars and...

Harley Earl Corvette: A One-of-a-Kind

Not too long ago, I was at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance, and I was up close and personal with something I never thought I would be fortunate enough to see in person… the Harley Earl Corvette.  To be honest, before that day in Boca, I never really knew the details of Harley J. Earl’s one-of-a-kind 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (aka Shop Order 10323).  That is to say… I knew it existed, but...

[UPDATE: The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 officially produces a massive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.  Holy crap.] With a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 producing over 600 horsepower, we knew the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat exhaust note would be mean… Just plain mean.  Oh, and loud… Mean and loud.  But, we didn’t have any idea it would be this mean and loud and...

Trident Iceni Diesel Supercar Is Coming to the US (Pricing)

In August 2012, we told you about the Norfolk, England-based Trident Sports Cars and their Trident Iceni diesel supercar.  In that particular post, I extolled the virtues of its rather powerful 6.6-liter turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic gearbox.  And, now, the Trident Iceni is officially ready to launch, and it’s coming to the U.S.   Trident claims the Iceni is the “the world’s fastest and most fuel...

2015 Jeep Renegade: Here Comes the Baby Jeep

People are calling the 2015 Jeep Renegade a baby SUV or a Cute Ute.  I myself just called it the Baby Jeep two seconds ago in this post’s headline.  But, truth be told, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a (semi-) serious, off-road SUV that is fully worthy of carrying the Jeep badge atop those seven vertical grill slats.   The 2015 Jeep Renegade broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show last month, but it has since made its US debut at...

LaForza: An SUV That Really Wants to Be a Ferrari

Last weekend was Barrett-Jackson’s annual auto auction in Palm Beach, Florida.  If you’ve never gone to a Barrett-Jackson auction, let me tell you, it’s quite a spectacle.  The stars of the show were without a doubt the Custom 2013 Ford Mustang Fastback from Need for Speed ($300,00), the first 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 roll off the production line ($1,000,000), the first 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ($500,000) and a...
