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...

10 Weirdest Production Cars, Ever By Far the Strangest Cars to Ever Roam the Streets

I got to thinking about the 10 weirdest production cars. I spend a lot of time talking about the most beautiful, powerful and incredible examples of automotive design and engineering on this site. From limited edition Bugatti Veyrons to classic Jaguar XKEs to the latest offering from Mercedes-AMG, there are cars that boggle the mind in terms of their sheer brilliance.   But, then there’s the other side of the coin…...

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...

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...

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...

2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4: New Take on an Old Idea: Video [NAIAS]

In 1965, Porsche developed the first 911 Targa with the intention of allowing for more stable and secure open-top motoring.  The wide Targa roof bar became the icon of that first Targa and all to follow despite numerous design changes.  Over the past fifty or so years, the targa top idea has caught on.  Hell, even the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that debuted earlier today has a targa-style removable roof.   Now, there is a new...
