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...

2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition [Los Angeles Auto Show]

Nothing says goodbye to a supercar like an over-the-top limited edition.  I guess that’s why Mercedes-Benz will be saying auf wiedersehen to the range-topping SLS AMG with the limited 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition.   Limited to only 350 units of both coupe and roadster versions, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition isn’t the most bonkers variant of the SLS AMG — that would be the 622 hp...

2015 Subaru WRX Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Subaru has officially won the road-going rally-car war.  With Mitsubishi retiring the Lancer Evolution after the Evo X’s run is finished, the Subaru WRX (and WRX STI) is the undisputed king of the hill.  So, think of the new 2015 Subaru WRX just unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a victory lap. It seems almost sad the the best Subaru WRX thus far is losing its sparring buddy.  But, be that as it may, the 2015 Subaru WRX...

2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo Is in a League of Its Own

As if the Nissan GT-R Track Edition wasn’t enough of an insane supercar, Nissan has just lifted the silks on an even more bonkers version of the GT-R, the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo.  And, it is in a league of its own.  Basically, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is a GT3-inspired version of the normal GT-R.   Power for the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo is a massive 600 horse (up 55 hp from the standard car), and torque is “over 480...

2014 Porsche Macan Finally Revealed [Los Angeles Auto Show]

On this site, I try really, really hard not to be incredibly cheesy.  It’s an uphill battle, I know, one I frequently lose in spectacular fashion.  But, when talking about the 2014 Porsche Macan that just debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, I won’t even try.  Because, (true to cheesy form) I keep imagining Porsche execs in Stuttgart working on the Macan over the past several years chanting: “I think Macan, I think...

2014 Fiat 500L: Around the Block Road Test Review [Driven]

There is something decidedly Italian about the 2014 500L, not Ferrari, Maserati or Lamborghini Italian, but grabbing a fresh loaf of Filone di Renella on the way to Gucci to pick up a new pair of loafers Italian.  It’s a bit more Italian than its closest competitor, the MINI Countryman is British.  Allow me to elaborate…   I recently had the opportunity to take the 2014 Fiat 500L for a spin Around the Block for a...

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...

Porsche Panamera Turbo S: A Peak Before Its Tokyo Debut

Ever since is debut at the 13th Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show in April 2009, the Porsche Panamera has been one of the most controvercial cars Stuttgart has ever put out, and they made the Porsche 914 AND the Porsche Cayenne.  Some people think it is the ugliest car this side of the Pontiac Aztec.  Others see the Porsche Panamera as a thing of true beauty.  But, love it or hate it, no one can deny its performance,...
