Maximum Monterey Part 2: Mecum markets a multitude of mega-exotics from... everywhere else! test 1-1

Now, don't panic. I know the list of Mecum's Ferrari/Maserati apex predators alone won't spend all of your quarter-billion-dollar inheritance from your granduncle Archibald, but I promise you will be able to spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble the greatest collection of modern mega-dollar performance cars as his will requires.

Maximum Monterey Part 1: Mecum markets a multitude of mega-exotics from Italy! test 1-1

My condolences. I heard about your granduncle Archibald's passing. Not to be rude, but wasn't it odd that a recluse who lived in a decommissioned missile silo in the middle of Nowheresville had a quarter-billion-dollars' worth of gold bullion stockpiled? I mean, it's good for you, as you're his sole heir. What? You get the money only if you spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble one of the greatest collections of mega-dollar performance cars?

Bugatti Considers Second Model Offering test 1-1

Bugatti has had a long storied history with the bulk of that history centered on a very small lineup usually consisting of one lone model. The Veyron has served as a recent example; the Veyron has the task of not only upholding its role as the pinnacle of Volkswagen's engineering and technology, it also holds the fortunes of the entire Bugatti brand on its shoulders. The upcoming Chiron was expected to continue where the Veyron left off in this regard, but it appears that it is about to receive a companion model, according to a new report from Australia.

Ferrari 458 Italia: A new stallion worthy of the name

Ferrari 458 Italia:  A new stallion worthy of the name test 1-1

When it comes to Ferraris, any new addition is celebrated by its many adoring fans like a new child in the family. The only sad part about adding a new Ferrari is that more often than not, it comes at the cost of losing one of our favorites. The new Ferrari 458 Italia is no different.  With its arrival, we must now cast off one of the most beautiful and crazy fast stallions from Maranello, the F430. From 2005-2009 the F430 scorched streets and racetracks all over the world with its 483-horsepower 4.3-liter banshee-imitating V8 that pushed that car in to a terminal velocity of 196 mph. You had your choice of either a traditional six-speed manual, or an F1-style six-speed electro-hydraulic paddle shifter. It was a car that was called by some (including your author) as the most captivating Ferrari since the mighty F40. With such large tires to fill, the question is:  Is the new 458 Italia up to the task?

It is no secret that when it comes to EV vehicles and their profitability, Sergio Marchionne has a well-defined stance against them. He says that their profitability is non-existent, that that the Fiat 500e EV costs $10,000 for every one that is sold. However, when it comes to whether he is open to adding one in a higher price bracket, Marchionne has swerved from that position.

1966 Velorex 16/350 test 2

People in my profession—and outside it, too, I suppose—have always railed against government “interference” in the production of vehicles. Sure, the seat belt was a good idea, but airbags, “safety” bumpers, and—more recently—the laundry list of electronic nannies like automatic braking and stability control?
