[Video] 2014 Audi RS7 Starts at $104,900

Let’s just get this out of the way right from the start.  I want this car.  I want a 2014 Audi RS7 with every fiber of my being and some leftover fibers I took from someone else’s being.  If I can’t have one (and at a starting price of $104,900 I probably can’t) I want to drive one.  On a road.  On a track.  In a parking lot.  It doesn’t really matter.  In short, I like the RS7. The 2014 Audi RS7...

VUHL 05: Track Day Car Born in Mexico City, Powered by Detroit and Unveiled in London

Don’t confuse VUHL with Zuul.  Zuul is the gatekeeper of Gozer The Destructor from Ghostbusters.  VUHL (pronounced “vool”) stands for Vehicles of Ultra High-Performance and Lighweight.  I think that may be pushing the whole acronym thing a bit.  In any case, they are the Mexico-based maker of the new VUHL 05 supercar.  You may recognize the name.  They’ve been dropping hints about the VUHL 05 for a few months...

Radical RXC: Very Light. Very Fast. Very Fun. Very New. [Video]

  On August 19, 2009, Radical set the Nurburgring lap record for production cars with a 6:48 in an SR8 LM driven by Michael Vergers.  The regular SR8 lapped the ‘Ring in 6:55.  Radical Sportcars went from founded (in 1997) to setting records on the Nurburgring in only twelve years.  And, now there’s a new addition to the stable… the Radical RXC.  And, it definitely lives up to the family name. Starting with a...

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante: Gaydon Raises the Bar for Car Beauty… Again.

And, this time it’s a convertible.  Go ahead.  Gawk.  Drool.  Ogle.  I’ll wait.  I understand.  The 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is absolutely, mind-blowingly stunning.  I mean, damn, just look at that paint.  I’m not sure yet, but it may actually be better looking than the Aston Martin Vanquish coupe, which is no small feat. Like its hard-topped sibling, the Vanquish Volante has a 5.9-liter (litre for our...

Porsche 918 Spyder: Introducing the Fastest Porsche Ever

It all started in 1986 with the Porsche 959.  Then came the Porsche 911 GT1 in 1996.  Then in 2004 came the Carrera GT.  When I say it all started, I mean Porsche’s drive to make utterly bonkers, stratospherically-priced race cars for the road. The 959 started out life as a Group B Rally Car and had a 444 hose twin-turbo flat-six.  The 537 horse twin-turbo flat-six 911 GT1 was born as a BRP Global GT Series car.  The Carrera GT,...
