A Full Year with the Baby Benz It’s been a year since we got our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 long-term test car. It’s also been a year since we posted our six-month 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 review. In that review we mentioned a few… let’s call them… foibles with the then newest Baby Benz mixed in among the many high points.   Here’s a quick recap of our six-month 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250...

UPDATE: The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has the unbelievable performance we were hoping for.  Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph passes in blink at 2.95 seconds. Quarter-mile is even more impressive at 10.95 seconds. These times are for a Z06 with the 8-speed automatic transmission.

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...

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...

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...
