Bugatti Rules Out Sedan Entry; Plans To Focus On High-End Segment test 1-1

Following conflicting rumors about the future of the company's plans to produce the 16C Galiber Concept, Bugatti has officially confirmed that it has killed the idea of a production version of the four door once and for all.

Video: The forthcoming Bentley Bentayga Can Off-road... Sort Of test 1-1

A Bentley SUV was inevitable, and Crewe has just released a video to prove that their ultralux creation can indeed hack it in the wild. But it's really not all that impressive. Unless you take into account that it weighs 9 billion pounds, and has all the aerodynamic properties of a Pizza Hut...


Reflections on the 2015 Corvette C7

C7 hood test 2

2015 is the second year of the seventh generation of America’s only home-grown sportscar, the Chevrolet Corvette. The opportunity to design a new Corvette is akin to singling the National Anthem—a wonderful opportunity, and a lot to live up to. Before launch, there was speculation the C7 would be mid-engined; it turned out not to be. Similarly, many feel styling too is iterative: bluntly, C7 looks too much like C6. However, standing beside the cars, C7 looks nothing like C6; it is full of unusual angles and fresh ideas. C7 seems sleeker, larger than C6. Go look at a C7 for yourself; the pictures don’t do the shape justice. 


2016 Viper ACR - Smiles Abound

2016 Viper ACR - Smiles Abound test 1-1

We won't lie; when a new car like a Viper comes out we are as giddy as a five-year-old on Christmas morning. Full of enthusiasm and exuberance at the idea of not just something novel, but of the potential it might have to be the best… whatever… car it is. But, that's not where the fun ends. In past years, the idea of, say, a new Corvette, would have us grinning for days and that would be it. But then, a new Z06 would come out—Corvette, but even better! Our little hearts could only beat so fast. Then, as with the C6, the ultimate Vette, a ZR-1 shows up and that would be about all we could take.

Cars We Can't Wait For:  2017 Ford GT test 1-1

It seems Ford has started a tradition for itself:  Every ten years they celebrate by creating a monster of a car to celebrate their historical victory at Le Mans back in 1966 with their world-beating GT40. Of course this seems to only be the second time Ford has done this, but some say life doesn't begin until your forty anyway, so we'll assume that the same can be said for anniversaries of beating the snot out of Ferraris in front of the world.

Haunted Highways: A Series Exploring The Ghosts of Cars Gone By (Quickly) test 1-1

In the course of automotive history, there have been thousands of cars that have elicited almost as many emotions from us. Some cars like the Edsel or the Pontiac Aztek make us cringe and wonder if the best thing those designers ever created was their resume. Then, on the opposite end of the spectrum are the cars that we simply love instantly like the Tri-Five Chevrolets or the first generation Thunderbird. Then there are cars that simply blow out minds with their combination of speed and beauty. Cars that blend the perfect mix of power, and esthetic appeal are few and far between, but when they do come along, they ingrain their images in our memories forever. One of the best examples of these cars was the very first McLaren F1 created by Ameritech.
