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...

McLaren 650S to make US debut during the 2014 New York Auto Show] I know one thing for sure.  McLaren makes a kick-ass car.  The MP4-12C is probably the best car available under $300,000.  And, the McLaren P1 is nothing short of extraordinary, both in terms of performance and styling.  But, now… now there’s another...

2014 Jeep Cherokee Review: A Most Surprising Road Test

I recently had the opportunity to road test the 2014 Jeep Cherokee.  Sometimes when I test a car, it turns out to be more or less what I expected.  For example, I knew the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was going to blow me away.  And, surprise, surprise, it did.  But, there are other times when I’m caught off-guard.  Times when I fully expect a car to be lackluster, only to be proven woefully incorrect.  The road test of the...

2015 Audi Q3: A Beefier Q3 for North America

The rest of the world has had an Audi Q3 crossover since 2011.  But, that Audi Q3 is a smaller, gentler Q3… more like a demure Q5 than a stout little SUV-style crossover.  The North American car market didn’t really buy into the last version (especially since it was never available here), so Audi has made a beefier, tougher, meaner, North-American-market-ready small luxury crossover in the 2015 Audi Q3.  The new Q3 is set...

2015 BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe: Twice the M Fun [Video]

New BMW M3 time is like Christmas.  It’s when all of the wishes of sublime speed and surefooted performance dreamt in the minds of little petrol-heads everywhere come true.  It makes me all warm and cozy… like sitting in a bolstered leather seat with the butt-warmers turned up.   Only this time, BMW is gracing the world with not just one new M car, but two.  Yep.  Two.  BMW officially introduced (on paper at least) the 2015 BMW...

Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4: Yep, It’s the New Baby Lambo [Video]

The brands spankin’ new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is here.  And, it’s fast.  Like really fast.  Like 3.2 seconds 0-62 mph (~3.0 seconds 0-60 mph), 202 mph top speed fast.  I guess after the leaked photos from yesterday, Lamborghini needed to accelerate their reveal of the replacement for the venerated-but-long-in-the-tooth Gallardo.   The Lamborghini Gallardo came out in 2003 and, as such, is filled with old tech. ...

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...

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...

2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop: The New MINI Debuts in Oxford (Updated: Price)

So, there is a new MINI Cooper Hardtop, the third generation since the brand’s resurrection twelve years ago.  Only now, instead of just calling the two-door hatchback the Cooper (or Cooper S) Hardtop, MINI has taken to calling it the MINI Cooper Original.  Catchy name, but does this latest MINI Cooper have any resemblance at all to the true original Mini, the one that changed the motoring world in 1959?   Back in the...
